A type of AuthorAppeal in the HaremGenre. Like a particular MoeMoe character type? There's not just one character that fits in this show/game/what have you, but the whole cast is composed of them! (Well, usually. Sometimes there's an odd haremette out, just for variety's sake.)

Necessarily needs something like FourGirlEnsemble or FourTemperamentEnsemble to differentiate their personalities, if not attaching other moe stereotypes to each of the characters, because you can't very well have four or five [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend pining childhood friends that have been waking you up in the morning for fifteen years]] without a bit of variety between them.

Also, doesn't seem to apply to settings; even though these are actual and well-known moe zokusei, "they're all [[AmazonBrigade soldiers]]" or "they're all [[{{Joshikousei}} schoolgirls]]" doesn't count, or we'd have every harem series on here and then some. Plus it's really about personality type. If they were all the hardened soldier type with a secret BodyguardCrush or [[HugeSchoolgirl tall high-school students]] with inferiority complexes, now that would be different.

Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Originally Eroge and Visual Novels ]]

* ''{{Kanon}}'' has four childhood friends; in fact, the fact that Shiori is a standard IllGirl with no connection to the hero (making her the odd haremette out) may explain why she always gets [[DemotedToExtra shafted]] in adaptations and merchandise. In this case, Nayuki has the traits of the typical UnluckyChildhoodFriend, living with the male hero, harbouring a crush on him for years, and losing out.
* The [[{{H-game}} eroge]] ''LittleMyMaid'' is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: a {{meido}}-centric game (although you could also go after the {{ojou}}).
* Speaking of trashy PornWithoutPlot eroge, ''SecretWivesClub'' had ChristmasCake.
* ''LetsMeowMeow'' has {{catgirl}}s, a rabbit girl, a couple of dog-girls, and a Childhood Friend who doesn't mind dressing up like a CuteMonsterGirl from time to time.
* ''{{Futakoi}}'', at the very least, had ''six sets of '''twins''''' for the harem. It really took things to the next level and, naturally, repeatedly pushes the protagonist into some sort of awed dizziness (that is, when he's not too busy [[CursedWithAwesome running from]] his harem's own "harems" or other [[BigBrotherInstinct "defenders"]]).
* ''LightNovel/SisterPrincess'' is BrotherSisterIncest-happy, with 12 or 13 sisters running around proclaiming their {{Big Brother Attraction}}s. In the game, the legal ones all have ''optional'' endings where they turn out to be NotBloodSiblings, and in the anime, [[spoiler:one isn't even ''adopted'' and is only posing as their sister]].
* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' plays with the trope a little: it only pretends to be a harem series until people start dying, but it's not until that point that it becomes clear that the "harem" has a {{Yandere}}[=/=]CuteAndPsycho theme. [[spoiler:There are two odd haremettes out, but both are played up to be crazy before TheReveal.]]
* The Visual Novel ''KatawaShoujo'' is set in a school for special needs students, and so all the girls are somehow disabled, [[IllGirl ill, or otherwise physically "vulnerable"]]: you get to choose between one who is deaf-mute, one who is blind, one with no arms, one with no legs, and one who is covered in horrible burn scars.
* ''{{Dracu-Riot}}'' is about vampire girls, with one exception for variety.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Other ]]

* ''RanmaOneHalf'' features dangerous martial artists [[MartialArtsAndCrafts of some kind or another, however bizarre or outlandish]]. They're all {{Tsundere}} {{Clingy Jealous Girl}}s, on top of that.
* ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' may count - the protagonist is male, and most of the other characters are female students. Many of them have [[HotForTeacher crushes on]] or ShipTease with him, and every single one of them has an unnerving psychosis of some kind. Some of them have actual psychological disorders, others are just plain weird.
* ''{{G-On Riders}}'' had nothing but {{meganekko}}.
* Minor joke in ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' fandom, as so far, Rock, of all people, attracted at least two {{Action Girl}}s (Revy & Eda) and one LadyOfWar (Balalaika). Although it's definitely obvious that only one of them is clearly falling/lusting after him ([[BelligerentSexualTension in a way]]), [[{{Shipping}} at least they had some potential]].
* The girls in ''KaibutsuOujo'' are all dominant/assertive, with half being {{Aloof Dark Haired Girl}}s.
* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' - an UnwantedHarem consisting of five {{Cute Monster Girl}}s.
* ''GuardianHearts'' - a harem of {{Magical Girl}}s.
* ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' - a harem of {{Human Alien}}s.
* ''HanaukyoMaidTai'' - a harem of [[{{Meido}} maids]].
* ''HandMaidMay'' - a harem of {{Robot Maid}}s.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' had it PlayedForLaughs once (for [[spoiler:[[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2011-10-03 Nanase]]]]).
** Played-Not-So-For-Laughs in the "Family Tree" arc when an evil magic user starts turning everyone at a holiday party into identical, subservient, mind-slaves (who happen to bear a striking resemblance to Nanase) in an attempt to rebuild the harem-cult he had controlled in the past.
* ''LightNovel/{{Denpa Onna To Seishun Otoko}}'' is basically a harem of [[CloudCuckooLander really weird girls]] -- hence the name. (The "Denpa Onna" portion of the title is often translated as "Lunatic Women".)
* The webcomic ''Webcomic/OwMySanity'' - a harem of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s who take the form of {{Cute Monster Girl}}s.
* ''Manga/MarugotoAnjuGakuen'' - a harem of {{Youkai}}.
* ''Anime/{{Yumeria}}'' - a harem of {{Super Hero}}ines.
* ''{{Magikano}}'' - a harem of {{Cute Witch}}es.
* ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'' - another harem of {{Cute Monster Girl}}s.
* {{Sekirei}} features multiple harems of HumanAlien {{Magical Girlfriend}}s, most of which are also {{Action Girl}}s with [[WorldOfBuxom enormous breasts]].
* ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' differentiates the characters into common types, but they all fall under PrincelyYoungMan -- and, if you ask the protagonist, UpperClassTwit as well.
* ''Manga/{{Amaenaideyo}}'' - a harem of nuns (not {{Miko}}s).
* ''Manga/{{Nisekoi}}'' - A harem of childhood friends, more specifically the ForgottenFirstMeeting kind of childhood friends.
* ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' - A harem of CthulhuMythos {{Eldritch Abomination}}s in the form of [[MoeAnthropomorphism cute teen humans]].
