Characters who have debuted in Harvest Moon DS (Cute).

For characters from other games in the series, check out the Characters page here.

  • Dub Name Change: In Japan the characters have different names from their original versions because they're supposed to be their descendants/reincarnations. Natsume streamlined it to be an Alternate Universe, but this causes some Dub Induced Plot Holes because other references weren't changed.
  • Advertisement:
  • Generation Xerox: Almost everyone. Seriously, this takes place one hundred years after A Wonderful Life and yet all the villagers have the same appearances, homes, and even names as their ancestors. The name part is more so Natsume's fault, they had different names in the Japanese version. The home thing makes sense too since they've probably lived in the same valley for generations.

     Bachelors and Bachelorettes 

Called "The Phantom Thief," he slinks around the valley looking for things to abscond with. He always warns his victims before appearing, and he thinks his destiny is to be a curry chef. He flirts shamelessly with the ladies, regardless of their age or marital status. Some of them are receptive to it. Others... aren't.
  • Bishōnen
  • The Charmer
  • Dating Catwoman: To a certain extent. Most of his heart events occur when he's stealing stuff from someone. Eventually, he says that some of his later thefts were only for a chance to see the main character.
  • Dub Name Change: He's known as "Steiner" in Japan
  • Gentleman Thief
  • If I Can't Have You...: If you try to propose he'll just assume you're showing him that you've gotten yourself a blue feather. He'll later break into your house to steal it so you can't propose to someone else, at which point you have to let him know it was intended for him anyway.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Compared to the other bachelors in the game. Compared to them, he looks like he comes straight out of a manga, and is arguably the hottest of them.
  • Not a Morning Person: Out of all the eligible bachelors, he's the only one who will still be sleeping when you wake up in the morning. Possibly justified in that he's usually out late at night.
  • Power Perversion Potential: He uses a technique called the "Chick Beam" to temporarily paralyze anyone in their tracks, rendering them helpless. Of course, he never goes too far with it, only using it to hinder people while he makes his escape.
  • Secret Character: Unless you have read a guide or gone to Lumina's mansion at 10 PM by any chance that triggers a cutscene which makes Skye into an eligible bachelor, you wouldn't have known that Skye even existed in the game. And even after you triggered the cutscene, he's really hard to find and is exhausting to your character, as he appears every night from east of Vesta's Farm.
  • Sissy Villain: OK, "Villain" isn't quite right—he's a Gentleman Thief more than anything—but he's definitely a little bit on the foppish side.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Curry.
  • Version-Exclusive Content: He is the "special" bachelor for Harvest Moon DS Cute, and was created specifically for that game.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: It's a silvery-white.


The store owner of May's Tailoring in Cute. He's a secret bachelor who is rather unorthodox.
  • Alliterative Family: He's May's grandson named "Mason".
  • Long-Distance Relationship: You commute with him over the phone. You learn more about him every time you purchase five items at a time.
  • No Name Given: A last minute subversion. At no point in any of your conversations does he actually introduce himself, and you only learn his name when the game asks you if you accept his marriage proposal or not.
  • Non Standard Game Over: If you accept his proposal, the game will end with you moving to Mineral Town.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He inherited the tailor business from his mother and grandmother. He also loves to cook.
  • Secret Character: Even more so than Skye, as absolutely zero information was officially released about his existence and his interactions with your character are triggered through a method not many players would think to do on their own.
  • Version-Exclusive Content: You talk to him when you call May's Tailoring, which is a store only accessible in Cute.
  • The Voice: He lives and works in Mineral Town, and you never see him in person.

A cute mermaid, she was rescued by Daryl. At first, she looks like another one of his experiments, but he actually cares deeply about her and wants to learn about mermaid culture from her. In return, she cooks for him and is his friend.

A princess who sleeps deep within the mines at Carter and Flora's excavation site. She does not speak, but has a tablet to write on. She was imprisoned there by the Witch Princess. She's one of the available bachelorettes, but be warned—just going to see her every day is no small feat, and she has expensive tastes.



The ringleader of the circus that moves into town after your child is born.
  • Black Bead Eyes: He's the only human character to have tiny black dots for eyes.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: The player character can witness him trying to recruit Mukumuku to his circus.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: "Ugly" is a bit of a strong word to describe Barney, but he's far more cartoony-looking than his wife.


The star acrobat of the circus, and Barney's wife.
