The protagonists of the games. A city mouse that was brought to the country.

* AgeInappropriateDress: Even when their face is wrinkled and their hair is gray, the main character's outfit never changes. An old man or woman running around in the clothes they wore as a teenager is... quite an interesting spectacle.
* AnimeHair: Mark.
* CallToAgriculture: Of course. We don't know what they were doing before, but the game starts with them taking over their dad's farm.
* [[FarmBoy Farm Boy/Girl]]: Brought in from the city to become one. They quickly get the hang of it.
* {{Expy}}: Mark looks a lot like Pete would without his hat and overalls.
* HelloInsertNameHere: Most people don't even know their default names.
* HeroicMime: S/he never says a word - every interaction with another character is done with changing facial expressions, nods or shakes of the head, and occasional charade-like actions. The choices you choose count as dialogue though.
* MissingMom: Their dad is deceased but their mother never even gets mentioned
* PurelyAestheticGender: The gender doesn't affect the character's stamina or anything else; the only difference it makes is the choice of love interests.
* PurpleEyes: Pony.
* SkirtOverSlacks: Pony again.
* TomboyishPonytail: Pony permanently wears a ponytail to fit her farmer image.

Your father's best friend and mentor figure on your farm.

* AerithAndBob: In a town full of American-friendly names like Chris, Patrick, Celia, and the (Asian) couple Tim and Ruby... there is Takakura.
* AllThereInTheManual: His bio in ''Friends of Mineral Town'' mentioned he used to work in construction. This is confirmed to be the case in ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonMyLittleShop My Little Shop]]''.
* BigOlEyebrows: As shown in the picture.
* CoolOldGuy: Takakura in ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife AWL]]'' may be silent and more than a little distant with you, but he has the farm's best interest always in mind, and is a sort of father figure to your character after your own dad died in the beginning of the game.
* EyesAlwaysShut: His eyes never open at all.
* MentorArchetype: Helps the player out on the farm, and gives important information on how to run the farm.

!!Your Child (Named [[CanonName Toto/Andy]] in ''My Little Shop'')

[[caption-width-right:336: Your Son (if you married Celia) and your Daughter. Both with their Toddler, Child and Teen forms.]]

Your child will appear in Chapter 2 after they were born. Their interests and what career they will have can be influenced by your decisions and who your friends are. They can have one of six different careers consisting of: Rancher, Farmer, Artist, Musician, Scholar and Athlete.

* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Your daughter can become one of these if she is more rebellious, although it's pretty downplayed. There will be a scene where she gets into an argument with her mother regardless of who you married. She'll eventually grow out of it.
* BrilliantButLazy: If you marry Nami, your child will have generally high strengths, but generally low interests meaning he (or she, in ''Special Edition'') could be good at almost any career, but requires a lot of pushing from you to actually try.
* CheerfulChild: When your child is in their toddler and child phases. Nami's is an exception for being slightly depressed, while Celia's child remains happy well into adulthood.
* CuttingOffTheBranches: Andy's appearance in ''My Little Shop'' implied that Mark may have married Muffy as he resembles Muffy's son in his child stage. With the difference being [[ having blue eyes]] instead [[ of green eyes]].
* DemotedToExtra: They play an important role in the ''Wonderful Life'' games, though they lose some focus in the ''DS'' games.
* DubNameChange: He's called Toto in the Japanese version of ''My Little Shop'', but named Andy outside of Japan.
* EmoTeen: Your child will become more moody when they're in this phase, but get better when they become an adult. Nami's child in particular will be more depressed.
* [[FarmBoy Farm Boy/Girl]]: If your child decides on running your farm, most often Celia's or Marlin's kid as they'll be more interested in farming than any other profession (helps that you've married a farmer).
* FieryRedhead: Inverted with Nami's son, who is more quiet and reserved.
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: Your daughter will sleep with a stuffed rabbit as a child. She outgrows it when she becomes a teenager.
* HelloInsertNameHere: You would need to name your kid.
* LamarckWasRight: Sometimes marrying a certain spouse and being friends with some people helps influence your child to a certain career. Celia's and Marlin's kid would be interested in farming, Lumina's and Gustafa's child will be interested in music comes to mind, and Muffy's and Rock's child will be interested in athletics. Nami's kid would be more of a scholar or an artist, but he can fit in any career other than athlete.
* MommasBoy: If you married Nami, Chris's fortune for your child will out him as one. Ironic when your child will hold some resentment towards Nami when they grow to a teen due to her off-hand parenting.
* [[NiceGuy Nice Guy/Girl]]: Celia's and Marlin's child will be one of these growing up. Not as moody or rebellious as the others.
* NotAllowedToGrowUp: Refreshingly averted for a change, as your child can grow up from a toddler into adulthood.
* PatchworkKids: Your son will share your spouse's eye and hair color, however your daughter will share Mark's eyes and hair in ''Special Edition''.
* PrecociousCrush: Your son will either fall in love with Kate (who's about six years older his senior), or if you married Nami, Lumina (who's about fourteen to twenty years older)! Your daughter will fall for Hugh (who's about six years older, eight internationally). Granted it's slim pickings for them.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Your child takes after your wife if they're male, you if they're female. There [[WhatCouldHaveBeen were plans]] for the daughter to take after the mother but time constraints forced them to only use one design for everyone.
* {{Tomboy}}: Your daughter will be one of these when she's a little girl. Though she'll start to act a bit more feminine as she grows up.
* TomboyishPonytail: Your daughter will don one when she's a kid, and keeps it well into adulthood.
* [[SheIsAllGrownUp They Are All Grown Up]]: By the end of the game, you child will be a young adult ready to start a career of their own.

A two-headed plant that [[ItMakesSenseInContext Takakura grew in his house]]. If you get the chance to befriend him, he can let you create hybrid crops.

* DoesNotLikeSpam: Carrots in their crop form, though he doesn't mind their seeds.
* LuckBasedMission: How trying to make hybrid crops work. You'll need to feed him two different seeds to create a brand new seed. However it's not guaranteed that'll work so you need to keep trying. Though fusing seeds and certain flowers (Gemsoils, Happy Lamps and Upseeds) has much more success by giving it a special benefit (Grow on any soil, grow in any season and crop rank is S respectively).
* MotorMouth: Tartan always tends to talk his heads off.
* PlantPerson: More plantlike than most examples, but the fact he's capable of speech and sentience still applies.
* WeaksauceWeakness: He's allergic to carrots. However you can let him analyze carrot seeds.

!!Daachan (named Daniel in ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS'')
A strange teddy bear that you can buy from Van for your child. But there is something about it that makes it off-putting.

* CreepyDoll: Rather homely looking, rather UglyCute though.
* LivingToys: Moves around when no one is around, though your child knows his secret.
* TheVoiceless: In the ''Wonderful Life'' sub-series, it can talk in ''DS''


[[folder: Bachelorettes]]

A traveler who drifted into Forget-Me-Not Valley and then forgot to leave. She lives at the village's inn but is quickly running out of money.

* AerithAndBob: Not as bad as Takakura, but still.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The latter of the three. (Muffy's the blonde and Celia's the brunette.)
* BrokenBird: The most aloof bachelorette you'll meet, and the most jaded too.
* TheCameo: Appears in ''Magical Melody'' as a weather girl, presumably in a -verse where Mark/Pony didn't marry her or befriend her. She can't be married in that game.
* DefrostingIceQueen: She takes a while to warm up to you. Most of the items she likes are either difficult meals or crops to attain in your first year, or flowers or vegetation that don't appear until fall or winter, causing her to be one of the most difficult to romance.
* DubNameChange: In ''DS''. From "Nazka/Nasuka" -> "Nami".
* HeroesWantRedHeads: If you choose her.
* IcyBlueEyes: She has sharp blue eys befitting her aloof nature.
* MaternallyChallenged: Fights with her son, goes off to the bar every night, and spends most of her days wandering aimlessly outside. The baby will be fine on his own...
* PermanentlyMissableContent: If you're not good enough friends with her, she'll leave the valley permanently. If you ARE, she'll ''claim'' she's leaving the valley forever... but she decides to stay. She likes Forget-Me-Not Valley too much.
* TheSnarkKnight: Nami can be very sarcastic.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: She's very detached at first but will soften up once you befriend/marry her.
* UnkemptBeauty: In ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife AnWL]]'' and the ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS DS (Cute)]]'' games, she has noticeably shaggier hair compared to ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife AWL]]''.
* WalkingTheEarth: Has no intention of sticking to one place for long, and had only been lingering in the Valley when you showed up because she liked this place.

!!!!!![[caption-width-right:125:[[labelnote: Click to see her adult look]][[/labelnote]]]]

A well-to-do orphan who was raised by her grandmother and lives in the villa.

* AllThereInTheManual:
** According to the [[ character profiles]] in ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonBackToNature Friends of Mineral Town]]'', her parents died in a train wreck.
** The Japanese site for the first game says she was 14. She was aged up in future titles to make her a love interest to Rock and Mark.
* AgeLift: Was fourteen in the first game, sixteen (eighteen internationally) in ''Another Wonderful Life'' and ''Special Edition''. ''DS'' and ''Cute'' outright use her adult design from the start.
* AscendedExtra: In the original version of ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife Wonderful Life]]'', she's just a girl in her early teens who develops a PrecociousCrush on the protagonist. In ''Another Wonderful Life'' she is Rock's rival love interest. In the ''Special Edition'' that came out for the [=PS2=], Lumina is aged up and made into a bachelorette.
* DubNameChange: In ''DS''. "Leona" -> "Lumina".
* HairDecorations: Wears a yellow headband.
* LonelyRichKid: Unless you do anything about it, the only person she will ever have to talk to is her elderly butler, her high maintenance grandma, or ''ROCK''. In the DS games she can befriend Mary if you connect to the ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonBackToNature Mineral Town]]'' games.
* NoAccountingForTaste: In ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS DS]]'', she eventually marries the playboy Rock. Most of their events afterwards involve them getting into fights with one another. (Heck, even their rival events are SlapSlapKiss!)
* OlderThanTheyLook: She's fourteen in the original ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife Wonderful Life]]'' game before being bumped up to being 16 (18 internationally). But even then, she looks like a preteen. ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS'' rectify this by using her adult appearance from the start.
* {{Ojou}}: She's the young, proper granddaughter of the richest woman in town.
* PlotRelevantAgeUp: In most files Lumina won't turn into her "adult" design until your child is in their Child stage. If you marry her however, when you get to the second chapter she's already changed models.
* PrecociousCrush: On Mark, though she initially views him like an older brother. She even cries if he marries someone else.
* PromotedToLoveInterest: For Rock in ''Another Life'', and to Mark in ''A Wonderful Life Special Edition''.
* ProperLady: Raised to be one of these by Romana.
* RichesToRags: If you marry her she happily goes from richest girl in town living in an enormous mansion on top of a hill to farmer's wife down by the river. However it should be noted that the player character can earn a LOT of money as a farmer, so this can be subverted.
* RaisedByGrandparents: Her grandmother took her in after the untimely deaths of her parents.
* RichBoredom: She's amongst the richest in town but has no actual friends besides the protagonist and doesn't really do much.
* SailorFuku: Only in the first two chapters. Averted in the ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS DS]]'' games.
* SpoiledSweet: She lives in an enormous house with her own butler and a fountain in the garden, but she's nothing but kind and friendly the vast majority of the time.

A farm girl who works on Vesta's farm. She's peaceful and sweet. Vesta's brother, Marlin, has his eye on her.

* ArrangedMarriage: Celia's parents want one of these for her.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The brunette. (Nami's the redhead and Muffy's the blonde.)
* BreakTheCutie: In ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife AWL]]'' if you bring her up to four hearts and see all of her events, then choose to marry someone else, it means she left her arranged marriage for nothing and shatters her heart. She, Vesta, and especially Marlin will ''never forgive you.''
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: She has mild traits of this, mostly associated with her love of plants.
* DubNameChange: In ''DS''. From Sapele/Sepilia/Sepiria/Serena -> Celia.
* {{Expy}}: A mix of Nina and Ellen from the original title. She's an eccentric farmer but has dark hair like Ellen.

* IdiotHair: She has a cowlick.
* TheIngenue: The kindest bachelorette in the Valley, and has two or three men after her.
* ShipperOnDeck: In one of Marlin's Heart Scenes, she will pretend to feel tired and leave so Marlin and Pony will have some alone time.
* TookALevelInJerkass: If you don't marry her, due to Vesta's influence and her previous heartbreak.

A waitress who works at the [[MyLocal Blue Bar.]] Perennially loveless, she often laments her ill luck with men. (Worse still, she doesn't seem to realize the affection that bar owner Griffin has for her.) She's a rather feminine girl, taking delight in makeup and jewelry.

* AllThereInTheManual: If not for her age being cited as thirty in the manual, you really wouldn't be able to tell.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Wavy curls of gold. (Nami's got the red and Celia the brown.) Though it is revealed if you marry her that [[spoiler: she uses curlers to get her hair like that every day.]]
* ChristmasCake: Being over 30 has caused her love life troubles.
* DubNameChange: Is known as "[=MuuMuu=]" in Japan ("Muu" in ''DS'')
* DumbBlond: Not too strongly, compared to Rock, but it's there.
* {{Expy}}: Of Eve from the first game in the series. She's a bittersweet blonde bartender in a red dress.
* HairDecorations: Like Lumina, she wears a headband, only black.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Her ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS DS (Cute)]]'' counterpart is a lot less catty than her ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife A Wonderful Life]]'' counterpart.
* LookingForLoveInAllTheWrongPlaces: In ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife AnWL]]'' Muffy can be seen crying now and then by the river over the latest boyfriend in the city who's broken her heart. Whether he was cheating on her, or secretly using her as his mistress, she always simply convinces herself that she'll find her man one day. [[spoiler: But... since you can't marry her in the game, she never does.]]
* MayDecemberRomance:
** Her designated love interest (outside of the player) is Griffin, 16 years her senior. She only marries him in ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS DS (Cute)]]'', though.
** She's also several years older than the player character.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Even amongst the [[ArtisticAge young looking characters]], she is a canon example. It's not easily noticeable that Muffy is in her thirties already.
* StepfordSmiler: She really wants to get married and have a family, but just keeps ending up with the wrong guy. While this does upset her, she's determined to keep a smile on her face. [[spoiler:If the male PC gets her to three hearts and then dumps her, she never really recovers from the heartbreak.]]
-->'''Muffy:''' [[spoiler:[[WhatTheHellPlayer I thought you were different...]]]]
* TrueBlueFemininity: Her jacket. Her post-marriage dress in the special edition of ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife AWL]]'' is also blue.

Carter's assistant. Though they share a tent together, their relationship is strictly business. While intelligent and strong, she's not a very good cook.

* ActionGirl: She's a blackbelt, as her StalkerWithACrush Daryl finds out first-hand. In the DS version, she'll teach you some of her signature moves.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She's normally nice but in ''DS'' her blackbelt skills appear when provoked.
* TheDitz: She was given a slight version of this in the DS games. Not helped by the fact that she speaks with prolonged words and uses ~ at the end of her sentences a lot.
* [[HotScientist Hot Archaeologist]]: She's an attractive woman. Daryll certainly likes her, but she doesn't notice,
* MeaningfulName: Averted. Flora hates plants.
%%* {{Meganekko}}
* OneNoteCook: In ''DS'' she can make a mean curry but nothing else edible.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Carter in the ''Wonderful Life'' games. They live together, work together, and never end up getting married. Despite rumors, they're only friends.
* PromotedToLoveInterest: In ''DS'' she can be married. She's also Carter's love interest when in ''AWL'' they're platonic.
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses: Flora is a glasses wearing archaeologist.


[[folder: Bachelors]]
The son of Tim and Ruby at the inn, though he looks ''absolutely nothing like them.'' He's a party animal who loves just lounging about and looking for fun stuff to do.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Calling him a 'moron' in ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife AnWL]]'' may not be the best choice to make. Neither is making Lumina cry.
* CampStraight: His three favorite things are partying, fashion, and women.
* CasanovaWannabe: He even wears a sleazy leisure suit.
* CloudCuckooLander: Not so much in ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife AWL]]'', but in ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife AnWL]]'' Let's just say he declares your ''dog'' his arch-enemy.
* DarkSkinnedBlond: Less so in ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS DS]]''. It might be natural, it might be a tan.
* DubNameChange: His ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS DS]]'' incarnation is named "Romeo" in the Japanese versions.
* DumbBlonde: He may be a guy, but ''boy is he ever.'' He's as dumb as a... er... well... [[InsultToRocks you]] [[IncrediblyLamePun know.]]
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
** "When it's this hot, lots of girls like to go to the beach in sexy swimsuits. Suddenly I feel like surfing."
** His line about wanting to go to the swamp for "this and that" is awfully suggestive.
* HappilyAdopted: [[spoiler: Well...sort of. If you marry Rock, his dad will comment that Rock was "like a son to them". Rock becomes flustered and changes the subject. Add this to several other hints in the game, as well as the fact that Rock looks ''nothing like them'' and...yeah.]]
* InformedAttribute: He tells you he's a pro skier. Knowing Rock, though...
* JerkAss: Arguably this in ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS DS (Cute)]]''.
* {{Keet}}: An adult, but he still counts.
* LazyBum: Rather content to live the life of a layabout. This changes when you marry him [[spoiler: when he'll run your farm when you pass away]].
* MayDecemberRomance: Flirts with Lumina and can even marry her in ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoon DS (Cute)]]'' despite their seven (five internationally) year age difference.
* MeaningfulName:
** Rock isn't the smartest guy in town.
** His ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS DS (Cute)]]'' incarnations name is "Theatre/{{Romeo|AndJuliet}}" in Japan.
* OlderThanTheyLook: He's 22, but looks like a young teenager.
* TheSlacker: Doubly so in his ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS DS (Cute)]]'' incarnation.

A ranch hand, and Vesta's brother. He moved out to the valley when he was young because of his failing health, and he's still a bit frail. He can be cold at first, but when he warms up, he shows himself to be a kind-hearted person. He does tend to worry, though.

* BerserkButton: If you break Celia's heart, he would've kicked your ass had Celia not intervened.
* [[DefrostingIceQueen Defrosting Ice King]]: He will open up as you befriend him, and he is very protective of Celia.
* DubNameChange: In the Japanese ''Wonderful Life'' games he is "Mash". In the Japanese ''DS'' games he is "Ash".
* [[IllGirl Ill Boy]]: He was one in his childhood; he's still somewhat fragile.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Varies depending on the game and actions. In ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife AWL]]'' he will ''not'' be nice to you if you pursue Celia, but if you marry someone else he'll be a good drinking buddy. And in ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife AnWL]]'' he becomes more like a very shy guy who just happens to not smile often.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Blue to Vesta's Red.
%%* StalkerWithACrush: See below.
* TookALevelInKindness: He is less of a jerk when you try to woo him in ''Another Wonderful Life'', same goes for his counterpart in ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS''.
* {{Yandere}}: There is an optional scene in which he muses over Celia's beauty, which ends with him saying "I'll decide who's good for Celia and who's not!"

A songwriter who lives in the valley, and something of a hippie. He's a loner and a wanderer, but he'll befriend you if you like--he might even show you some of his music. He's pretty in-tune with nature. He likes Nami; he's attracted to fellow loners.

* AscendedExtra: He went from being a rather pointless character in ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife AWL]]'' to one of the three potential spouses in ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife AnWL]]''.
* DubNameChange: In ''DS''. "Gusta" -> "Gustafa".
* EruditeStoner: He's not stoned as far as we know, but he ''acts'' like it sometimes...
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Your dog will listen to his music.
* GagNose: Even when he is supposed to be prettied up as a potential spouse, the artwork for him seems to exaggerate the size of his nose.
* NewAgeRetroHippie: The original games are implied to take place in the 2000s and the DS ones are a century later, yet Gustafa is still is a hippie living in a tent.
* NiceGuy: Probably the most normal and stable out of the three bachelors. However, the general opinion seems to be "Eww, old hippie!"
* NiceHat: He is never without a hat that is both pointy and ridiculous under any circumstances.
* PrematurelyBald: According to concept art, he's this under his hat.
* RummageSaleReject: Green hat, striped shirt, brown vest with tassles with beatnik shades. He easily stands out.
* WordSaladLyrics: The song he sings doesn't really make sense.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: He's really the second-youngest bachelor after Rock, but people tend to treat him as if he's much older. Must be the beard. To drive this even ''further'', Gustafa is the only bachelor who will never age, and by the end of the last chapter will still look the same as the day you met him, compared to Rock and Marlin whose hair starts to grey by the second chapter.

The owner of the [[MyLocal local bar]]. Griffin is a aging, calm and gentle guy who loves to play music and mix up drinks. He's known Muffy for years and has a small crush on Muffy. In ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS DS]] [[DistaffCounterpart Cute]]'' he is a marriageable bachelor.

* CoolOldGuy: A very easygoing man who'll welcome you to his bar. He also plays the guitar too if you're lucky.
%%* GagNose
* HiddenDepths: If you're lucky, sometimes when walking into his bar you will catch him quietly playing a song on his guitar for whoever wants to listen.
* MayDecemberRomance: He's pretty surprised that someone as pretty and young as your character would want to marry a gruff looking old man like him. In ''Cute'' he is this to both him and Muffy ''and'' him and the PC. If you go after him, he even asks you if you think you can really be attracted to a man his age.
* NiceGuy: A very easygoing and responsible bar owner. Even stops you from drinking too much.
* ParentalSubstitute: In ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife AWL]]'', he behaves more as a father figure to Muffy, and brings her to you for your wedding.
* PromotedToLoveInterest: He has a crush on Muffy in the original games but can outright marry her in the DS games. He can also marry the protagonist in ''Cute''.
%%* PornStache
* SickeninglySweethearts: Of all the rival marriages in the DS games, he and Muffy are certainly the happiest. While they aren't overly lovey-dovey around each other, they give off this vibe when comparing them to the other unhappy couples.

The local archeologist who works at the dig site with his assistant Flora.

* AdventurerArchaeologist: He doesn't actually do a lot of adventuring, but he has the ''spirit'' of one at least.
* DoesNotLikeSpam: In the DS games everyone in the valley really loves curry... except him. He ''hates'' it, [[OneNoteCook especially when Flora makes it.]]
* FacePalm: One of his favorite expressions in the DS games.
* INeedToGoIronMyDog: One ''DS'' event has him trying fruitlessly to get out of having to eat Flora's curry. He can't eat it, because... ''[PlayerCharacter walks in]''--he, uh, promised he'd go eat lunch with HelloInsertNameHere! ''Didn't he?'' (Be nice and rescue the man.)
* MayDecemberRomance: He and Flora aren't too far apart, but he and the PC of ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS DS Cute]]'' are.
* PlatonicLifePartners: Despite rumors, him and Flora are platonic in the ''Wonderful Life'' games, and in the DS games if you court either or don't provoke their Rival Events. In ''Cute'' Flora even calms his PanickyExpectantFather tendencies, and she ends up the godmother of your child.
* PromotedToLoveInterest: To the protagonist in ''Cute'' and Flora in both DS games.
* {{Precursors}}: He got into archaeology because he thinks he might be descended from them. [[spoiler: In a [[GuideDangIt ridiculously difficult-to-see-scene]], the Harvest Goddess tells him he's not, but he ignores her because he's not about to give up his life's work.]]

[[folder: Other Villagers]]

Marlin's overbearing sister and owner of Vesta's farm. She takes great joy in her work and is normally quite good-natured and cheerful. Just... don't cross her. We warned you.

%%* ApronMatron
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Particularly if you broke Celia's heart.
* {{Expy}}: Aesthetically she resembles Ellen's mother from the original game.
* FieryRedhead: Lord help you if you set her off.
* {{Gonk}}: Less so than most but she has a large chin, husky voice, large size, and very muscular arms.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Red for Marlin's Blue.
* SiblingYinYang: She's very talkative and loud while her younger brother Marlin is shy and soft-spoken.

!!Patrick & Kassey
Twins who make fireworks.

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Patrick apparently takes pride in being the second best pyrotechnic in the world, with his brother being better than he is.
* IdenticalTwinIDTag: Kassey wears blue overalls with a smiley face, Patrick wears green overalls with a flower. Also Patrick has a single hair on his bald spot where Kassey doesn't have one.
* PyroManiac: They make fireworks.
* ThemeTwinNaming: Averted.

Grant's wife and Kate's mother who moves into town in the second chapter.

* BitchInSheepsClothing: She seems to be an incredibly high maintenance woman, impatient with guests and her daughter, and Grant tries his hardest to avoid coming home from work for as long as possible because of her.
* TheGhost: She is noticeably missing in ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS''. It's explained that Grant finally got the good sense to divorce her.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Considering how she acts towards her husband...

Kate's father and Samantha's husband.

* {{Salaryman}}: He's styled after one and even gets drunk a lot after working like one.
* ShrinkingViolet: Very passive compared to his wife and daughter.
* TheAlcoholic: Heavily implied. He's at the bar a lot when not working, and in ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS DS]]'' his favorite gift is Wine.
* {{Workaholic}}: He purposely works long hours to avoid meeting his [[BitchInSheepsClothing less-than-nice]] wife and bratty daughter at home. In ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS DS]]'', he works hard to support him and Kate.

A little girl who loves to [[ torment]] Hugh. She is Grant's daughter.

* GirlishPigtails: As a child. They're technically braids, though.
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Especially in ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS DS (Cute)]]'', where she's incredibly verbally abusive to Grant.
