* ParentalAbandonment: While not outright stated or alluded to, in order to keep the games' and anime's sweeter mood, the reason why the sisters [[BigBrotherWorship adore]] their brother so much can be seen because of this. Their father is never around, and their mothers are too busy with their high-end jobs. As a result, their brother [[PromotedToParent has to step in]].

* ReincarnationRomance: The reason for Chikage's feelings towards her big brother are due to this where she believes that in a past life, they were lovers rather than siblings. However, the reincarnation cycle messed up, so Chikage wound up as a younger sister instead. In the anime, Chikage takes it to stride and decides to wait for the next life to try again. [[spoiler:However, in the PSX games, due to the twist ending that it's found out that the sister of the player's choice is
not a bad person blood-related, this can be seen as this or dangerous, she definitely is a bit mischievous.

Added DiffLines:


* NiceHat: Hinako sports a cute teddy one when she goes out looking for her teddybear.

[[folder: Big Brother]]
!!Big Brother (Wataru Minakami)
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sprincesswataru_8.jpg]]
->Voiced by: Kenji Nojima (Japanese), Braden Hunt (English)

The big brother whom all of the sisters adore and the player character in the Visual Novel. He looks after his sisters and devotes an extraordinary amount of time caring and guiding them.

-----

* BigBrotherInstinct: In both versions, though in the anime, he was a bit reluctant at first, still weirded out at discovering he has twelve sisters.
* CatchPhrase: In the anime: ''"It can't be true."''
* PromotedToParent: It's quite obvious in the anime considering Wataru has to look after twelve of his sisters, but it's explored and justified more in the PSX games. There, the father is not present in any of the sisters' lives, and their mothers have high-class jobs which takes them away from spending time with their daughters. Therefore, the big brother has to step up and look after the sisters with not just love and attention but also parental guidance.


[[folder:The Twelve Sisters]]
[[quoteright:302:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sprincesssisters.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:302:From L-R. Bottom Row: [[ButterflyOfDoom Chikage]], [[CuteClumsyGirl Kaho]], [[GadgeteerGenius Rinrin]], [[NiceGirl Karen]]; Third Row: [[IllGirl Marie]], [[TheBabyOfTheBunch Hinako]]; Second Row: [[PassionateSportsGirl Mamoru]], [[SupremeChef Shira]][[LethalChef yuki]], [[SleepyHead Aria]]; Top Row: [[AmateurSleuth Yotsuba]], [[YamatoNadeshiko Haruka]], [[SmittenTeenageGirl Sakuya]]]]
The twelve younger sisters of the big brother. They dote and adored him wholeheartedly.

The following are tropes that apply to all the sisters:
* BigBrotherWorship: Justified in the PSX games where the sisters' and the brother's father slept with 12 different women and had the sisters by them. He's never around in the growing up of the girls, and while luckily the sisters' mothers aren't in any financial trouble due to their high-end jobs, they aren't there to provide emotional support. This is where the big brother steps in, and hence why the sisters adore him so much: it's because he's not only giving them love and attention but also ''[[PromotedToParent parental guidance]]''.
