Video Game / MySims Kingdom

MySims Kingdom is part of the My Sims series, which in turn is a spinoff of The Sims series. It was released in 2008 for the Wii.

This game revolves around quests and the scrolls that come with them. You have to gather a bunch of different items to complete the scrolls and get new items. Then, you furnish islands and buildings with your new furniture. It's what you're set out to do on your adventure.


This spinoff includes examples of:

  • Adventure Town: More like Adventure Islands.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Summer or Lilberty, depending on who gets to be Travis's date to the prom. Linda also has feelings for Trevor and Buddy doesn't seem to like Lyndsay back. Sylvia likes Gonk but Gonk doesn't even know her name!
  • And Your Reward Is Clothes: Sometimes you'll get outfits as a reward for doing things.
  • An Interior Designer Is You: Arguably the whole point of the game.
  • Attending Your Own Funeral: Dr. F delivers a eulogy for the brave sacrifice of astronaut Vic Vector. During the celebration of the forthcoming rocket launch. Whilst Vic is standing next to him.
    Dr. F: EAT YOUR GRIEF SANDWICHES!
  • Betty and Veronica: Liberty and Summer, respectively.
  • Bittersweet Ending: The two endings to The Royal Academy. If you have Summer dance with Travis then Liberty learns to be more assertive and learns to be okay that All Love Is Unrequited. If you have Liberty dance with Travis then Chaz shows some respect towards Summer and Summer is also okay that All Love Is Unrequited.
  • Book Worm: Elmira and Gordon.
  • Breakout Character: Buddy goes from being a bellhop in the original game to your sidekick in this one.
  • Bribing Your Way to Victory: You'll sometimes have to socialize with Sims so you can get scrolls or whatever.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Liberty and Summer to Travis. In the end, you have to solve their problem for them by choosing who goes to dance with Travis at the prom.
  • Cutscene: There's a lot of them. Most of them seem to be tutorials.
  • Everything's Better with Cows: Tuffy, Clarabelle, and Annabelle are all cows who appear in Cowboy Junction.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: The triceratops from The Uncharted Isle.
  • Fetch Quest: This game is made of it. It's easier to count what's not a fetch quest.
  • Forced Tutorial:
    • At the beginning of the game, the wandolier quest is this. Pretty much almost anything else on Capital Island is this. For example, the pig herding quest by Elmira teaches you how to get animals to follow you.
      • Actually subverted a bit. For cutscenes you can skip them.
  • Foreshadowing: King Roland mentions elves, who could get Princess Butter a unicorn when she loses the wandolier contest. About halfway through the game, the player can visit the Forest of the Elves, which also has unicorns.
  • Fractured Fairy Tale: The game has elements of this.
  • Gotta Catch 'Em All: You have to catch every single fish (for Barney), find every single flower (for Poppy), find all the pieces of armor (for Spencer), and collect every single figurine (for Vic Vector).
  • High-School Dance: At the Royal Academy. There you have to choose who Travis goes to dance with.
  • Instant Fan Club: DJ Candy gets one from Sapphire and Zack.
  • Item Crafting: You have to collect various items for the scrolls you find in order to make new items.
  • Light Is Not Good: The island of Cutopia. They have the same amount of problems as every other island.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Everyone except you seems to wear the same thing all the time.
  • Loads and Loads of Loading: From the previous game, though it was fixed in this one. Whole islands are loaded at once so that this doesn't happen.
  • Love Triangle: Travis, Summer, and Liberty at the Royal Academy.
  • Magic Wand: You get one near the start of the game.
  • Mana: You need this to power your wand. Thankfully it's pretty easy to get.
  • Metal Detector Puzzle: Constantly. There's surprisingly a lot of stuff underground.
  • Official Couple: Violet and Lord Daniel. Liberty or Summer and Travis, depending on your choice at the Royal Academy's prom.
  • Our Elves Are Better: There are only two elves: Leaf and Petal.
  • The Power of Rock: Leaf saves his island by using The Power of Rock to bring back the unicorns.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter:
    • Elmira's pigs.
    • The animals in Renee's Reserve.
    • All of the animals in the Forest of the Elves. Especially the pugs.
    • The bunnies on Cutopia.
    • The triceratops on the Uncharted Isle.
  • The Reveal:
    • Rusty is the one stealing everything on Cowboy Junction.
    • At the Forest of the Elves you have to use The Power of Rock to help out the island.
    • At Cutopia Beverly locks up Violet Nightshade in a tower and you have to get her out!
    • The book of life contains blank pages. Maybe you're supposed to write your own story perhaps?
  • Second Law My Ass: Tobor and Proto-Makoto hate constantly being treated as living test dummies by Lexi and Dr. F.
  • Speaking Simlish: Since this is a spinoff of the Sims series, the characters speak like this.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: Violet and Daniel. It eventually works out okay.
  • Sugar Bowl: The series is very much Lighter and Softer than the classic Sims and even the darkest landscapes or situations adhere tightly to the Rule of Fun and the Rule of Funny.
  • 20 Bear Asses: You're supposed to get a bunch of items for the scrolls you get to make new stuff.
  • Two Girls and a Guy: Candy, Sapphire, and Zack from Candypalooza.
  • Vague Age: A lot of people don't seem to have official ages.
  • Video Game Caring Potential: You can be nice to people and fulfill their every need.
  • Video Game Cruelty Potential: Or you could take all their stuff and mess up their lives pretty badly.
  • Virtual Paper Doll: You get to customize your character's skin tone, clothes, hair, eyes, and more.
