A type of AuthorAppeal in the HaremGenre. Like a particular {{Moe}} 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 [[PatientChildhoodLoveInterest 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 attributes, "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.



[[folder: Originally Eroge and Visual Novels ]]

* ''VisualNovel/{{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 PatientChildhoodLoveInterest, living with the male hero and harbouring a crush on him for years.
* The [[HGame eroge]] ''Little My Maid'' is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: a {{meido}}-centric game (although you could also go after the {{ojou}}); [[spoiler:the title is actually a {{pun}} because it turns out the maids are actually ''mermaids'' and, more to the point, the daughters of Urashima Tarō and mistress Hime was his wife, Otohime and is their mother]].
* ''Lets Meow Meow'' has 3 {{catgirl}}s (one of which is a {{Meido}}, one is a RobotGirl and the third is a {{Miko}}), a rabbit girl, a police officer dog-girl and a Childhood Friend who doesn't mind dressing up like a CuteMonsterGirl from time to time.
* Speaking of trashy PornWithoutPlot eroge, ''Secret Wives Club'' had ChristmasCake.
* ''Anime/{{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.]]
* ''VisualNovel/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.[[note]]And the protagonist himself has heart arrhythmia.[[/note]]
* ''VisualNovel/DracuRiot'' is about vampire girls, with one exception for variety.
* ''Imouto Paradise'' is, unsurprisingly, about {{Little Sister Heroine}}s. Five, to be specific.
* Invoked in ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}''. Shiki has this strange "Tohno Gland" that specifically drives away normal girls, and attracts [[DysfunctionJunction incredibly beautiful but incredibly crazy]] women. Thus, all of his girls have something to do with the supernatural.
* ''VisualNovel/PurinoParty'' sets the player up for girls with different sexual interests.
* Both ''VisualNovel/YandereILoveYouSoIWantToKillYou'' and ''VisualNovel/MyHaremHeavenIsYandereHell'' revolve around a harem of {{Yandere}}s.
* In ''VisualNovel/SevenHottiesAllMyHusbands'', all of the love interests are celebrities with high-paying jobs.
* In ''VisualNovel/LiarUncoverTheTruth'', nine of the ten love interests are liars.
* In ''VisualNovel/ExtracurricularActivities'', the main cast are muscular anthropomorphic men who are all tennis players that are on the same team as you, including the coach, and they have quirky personalities.
* ''VisualNovel/KamigamiNoAsobi'' features a harem of [[DivineDate attractive gods]].
* ''VisualNovel/StarCrossedMyth'' has a double theme - not only are all the love interests [[DivineDate gods of the Zodiac]], half of them are from the Department of Punishments, while the other half are from the Department of Wishes.
* In ''VisualNovel/ShallWeDateMyFairyTales'', all of the heroes are GenderFlipped versions of famous fairytales (with the sole exception of Literature/HanselAndGretel - Gretel is gender-flipped, Hansel isn't).
* ''[[VisualNovel/ShallWeDateNinjaShadow Shall We Date?: Ninja Shadow]]'' has a harem of handsome male ninjas for a ninja PlayerCharacter.
* In ''VisualNovel/ShallWeDateMySweetPrince'', all six love interests are princes.
* ''Shall We Date: Destiny Ninja'' - another harem of male ninjas.
* In ''VisualNovel/ShallWeDateBloodInRoses'', all the love interests are magical in some way (werewolf, vampire, wizard, etc).
* ''VisualNovel/DiabolikLovers'' is a reverse harem consisting of vampires.
* ''VisualNovel/EnchantedInTheMoonlight'' - a harem of [[{{Youkai}} ayakashi]], all of whom have a BodyguardCrush on the heroine.
* ''VisualNovel/StarrySky'' - a harem of good looking young men (3 per game) who each represent a sign from the WesternZodiac.
* ''Harem Island ~Otoko'' - a harem of {{Cosplay Otaku Girl}}s (it's a fantasy-themed park).
* ''Eji Koi'' - a harem of Egyptian gods.
* The Black Foxes of ''VisualNovel/LoveLetterFromThiefX'' are a harem of {{Kaitou}}s.
* In ''VisualNovel/DreamDaddy'', all the potential love interests are single fathers (as is the protagonist).
* ''VisualNovel/SeduceMeOtome'' - a harem of [[HornyDevils incubi]].
* ''VisualNovel/PiratesInLove'': A harem of handsome pirates.
* ''VisualNovel/ScandalInTheSpotlight'' - the five attractive members of a boy band.


[[folder: Other ]]

* ''Manga/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.
* ''Manga/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.
* ''Anime/GOnRiders'' has 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 original OVA series also has an IncestIsRelative theme - Ayeka and Sasami are Tenchi's great-aunts, Ryoko is technically Washu's daughter, Washu herself is actually a goddess and a sister of Tsunami (the goddess who is fusing with Sasami), which technically makes her Sasami's sister, and Mihoshi is Washu's descendant.
* ''Anime/HanaukyoMaidTai'' - a harem of [[{{Meido}} maids]].

** 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/GroundControlToPsychoelectricGirl'' is basically a harem of [[CloudCuckooLander really weird girls]] -- hence the name. The first part of its Japanese title (''Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko'') is often translated as "Lunatic Women".

* ''Manga/{{Nisekoi}}'' - A harem of childhood friends, more specifically the ForgottenFirstMeeting kind of childhood friends.
* ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' - A harem of Franchise/CthulhuMythos {{Eldritch Abomination}}s in the form of [[MoeAnthropomorphism cute teen humans]].

* ''FanFic/RanmaClub'' revolves around [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Ranma]] gaining a harem in the form of the WinxClub, which results in a harem of MagicalGirl fairies.
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6117094/1/Ghoul-Instructor-Naruto Ghoul Instructor Naruto]]'' gives Anime/{{Naruto}} a harem of {{Cute Monster Girl}}s in the form of [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheGhoulSchool the Grimwood Academy girls]] and Miss Grimwood's [[OriginalCharacter niece]] [[CuteWitch Gem]].
* In ''LightNovel/EromangaSensei'', the heroines all have a connection to light novels, be they writers, artists or readers.
