to:

* Toddlers can only [[KidsLoveDinosaurs talk about dinosaurs]] in 4 when they've reached full Communication. Maybe that's because some dinosaurs have long, hard-to-pronounce names.


* The [[FaceFullOfAlienWingWong alien]] [[MrSeahorse male pregnancies]] featured in the various installments. Mix the worse of AlienAbduction with MedicalRapeAndImpregnate and add a heavy dose of BodyHorror (how do you think a male pregnancy without an uterus and birth canal would work out?). Sure, it's funny and/or cute in game, but just think about it.

** The worst part is that [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_youngest_birth_mothers it]] can be TruthInTelevision



** Just think of it as eating eggs for some NightmareRetardant.

** Just the implication that ''Death'' itself is sapient and evil.

* The consignment store in The Sims 3 will close down at night, while the Elixir store will not. It makes perfect sense once you remember that the Elixir store definitely has access to potent invigorating potions, ensuring that their sale clerk can stay up all night and not miss out on potential late customers.



to:

* In The Sims 4, if one asks the Grim Reaper if hes single, he basically says hes far too evil for romance(not that it stops him from potentially forming relationships anyway). At first, this may seem like a case of EverybodyHatesHades, until you consider [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential a certain major reason]] [[CruelPlayerCharacterGod for many Sim deaths]].

Added DiffLines:

** Sims 3 keeps track of family connections via the family tree, but if you have a massive family, it won't recognize extended relatives beyond the third generation and first cousins. This means it's entirely possible without cheats to have [[KissingCousins romantic relations with cousins]], and not necessarily distant cousins either. Your cousin, your parents' niece or nephew, is off-limits, but that cousin's son or daughter is a-okay.



to:

* In ''The Sims 3: University Life'', [[PlantPerson PlantSims]] don't give live birth. Instead, they produce a seed, that grows into a bush, and the bush produces a baby...Or a Forbidden Fruit. That means Forbidden Fruit are miscarried [=PlantSims=]. ''[[{{Squick}} And Sims can]] '''[[EatsBabies eat them]]'''''.


*** Starting a Hunger ghost sim in Supernatural reveals that-- yes, their Hunger bar is extremely low. With NPC ghosts? ''Constantly.''

** When a Sim has been afflicted by the mummy's curse for about a week, the screen becomes surrounded by a strange sort of glow whenever said Sim is selected. Let another week pass, and the edges of your screen will dim to black every few seconds. Your Sim's vision ''blurring and clouding over as they slowly die,'' perhaps?
** If a Sim dies before they turn their imaginary friend real, the imaginary friend doesn't die with them. They remain wandering around the lot, and then fade out once you select another Sim to control. Just like they did ''before'' their Sim died. Does that mean that imaginary friends can't ever die? Do they wander around endlessly among the grieving family members, [[AndIMustScream unable to communicate without their Sim to talk to?]] [[FateWorseThanDeath Forever?]]
** In Late Night/Supernatural: to keep Sims T Rated, vampires will drink plasma, the Sim equivalent of blood. While this isn't too bad on its own, notice that plasma is available in the quick meal section of the fridge. Did we mention you never run out of quick meals? So essentially, your Sims keep an infinite supply of Sim blood in their fridges at all times.
*** Cheaply produced plasma fruit juice, not exactly the most tasty thing on the Sims menu but serves its purpose. Just don't drink it if you are a regular Sim without an enhanced immune system.
*** Most of the fanbase considers the plasma juice Sims get from the fridge to be the Sim equivalent of [[Series/TrueBlood TruBlood]], whereas the plasma vampires get from Sims is real blood.
** The ghosts of Sims that have died from hunger have little speech bubbles about it the same way alive Sims do. Does that mean they're ''always as hungry as they were when they died?''

*** That is just scratching the surface. By this logic, the ghosts who drown are always suffocating, and the electrocuted feel... whatever you feel when you get electrocuted. Being a ghost in the Sim World, at least one who died of anything but old age, is basically a [[FateWorseThanDeath fate worse than]] CessationOfExistence.
*** Not really, Sims that died of old age will always complain about being tired.
** Fairies can fix things by turning into their miniature form and repairing them from inside. That includes [[NauseaFuel unclogging toilets]].
** This troper thought for a bit and calculated that it's entirely possible for incest to ensue. It may sound a bit far-fetched, but hear me out. You see, if you don't take care of a certain child in the family, the social worker will eventually take him/her away from their parents. That means that they permanently cut any family bonds the child had with them, even by blood. So let's say the family had another child who is healthy, and then grows up to an adult. The child who was taken away gets adopted by another family and grows up in theirs as well. Now, it's possible for both of these children to marry each other and have kids. (This troper has tried, and it works.) It probably works other ways as well (KissingCousins, ParentalIncest etc.)
*** It's possible to have a form of incest without even leaving the household if you have University. If you get your sim's science skill to 9 you can clone objects and sims, and these sims have no familial ties.
*** ''Sims 2'' only registers three generations as relatives to each other. This means that sims can date their own great grandkids. [[note]] This was done intentionally on EA Games' part because sims don't usually live long enough to meet their great grandkids unless cheat codes are used.[[/note]] There are mods to accommodate this, however.
** It is possible, at least in the Sims 3, to create a family where a young adult (i.e. college age) has teenage children. Sims that the player creates are always at the very beginning of their life stage. Equate the stages to real life, and you have an 18 year old with a 13 year child.
*** Not exactly. When a sim becomes a teen, they're in high school. The age of which a person begins high school is 14. This is actually [[FromBadToWorse even worse though]], as this means the young adult was [[{{Squick}} even younger]] when she had the teenager.
** Given that you can find want ads for criminal careers in the paper and on the computer, it makes you wonder what kind of world The Sims are living in.

** Probably the most {{egregious}} example is that you can have an entire town of mayors. You can even have an entire town's worth of ''presidents''.

Added DiffLines:

* When you start playing a neighborhood, unemployed Sims from the unused playable households get random jobs which can sometimes have disturbing implication, like having [[http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Hunter_Cottoneye Hunter Cottoneye]] working at the school. What kind of school administration would think a crazy jerkass dressed in whole camo and living alone inside a bunker is the perfect person would be the right person to be around kids and work as their teacher?
