Legends of Happy Tree Town is a fan-made Eastern RPG by GamingDubstepGriffin101 (a user in Happy Tree Friends Fanon Wiki) based off the Happy Tree Friends series.

The game involves Flaky, who, in the middle of her journey at a snowy region, ends up fainting. Fortunately, she's rescued by someone (who turns out to be Cuddles) and brought back to the town. She then meets her rescuer when she attempts to leave, and so the journey involving the porcupine and her rescuer begins. Not long after they begin their journey, they're told about demons popping up in their world...

The game is made using RPG Maker VX Ace Lite, so it doesn't contain as much content as one would expect from an RPG. Because of that, maps tend to have little to no features, gameplay is rather linear and filled with several instances of Point of No Return, and the length of the game is short (around 30 minutes).

At one point, the game was unavailable due to Creator Backlash regarding this page. However, the download link was restored in 2016.


This game provides examples of:

  • Action Girl: Flaky and Petunia.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: Flaky in the early parts of the game, due to her not getting any new weapons until much later.
  • Bee Afraid: Bees are some of the enemies you can find in Happy Tree Forest. They're known for their Poison-inducing attacks.
  • Black Mage: Flaky learns mostly damaging magic skills. The only magic skill that doesn't deal damage simply slows all enemies down.
  • Blow You Away: All of Flaky's damaging magic skills are Wind-based.
  • Breath Weapon: Lava Slimes breathe fire, which can hit the entire party.
    • On the icy side, Ice Demon has this too, which also hits the entire party.
  • Combat Medic: Petunia, while mostly reliable for healing, has decent ATK that allows her to join in on the good ol' "regular attack" spamming fun.
  • Dark Is Evil: Corvus, the black elvish raven.
  • Demonic Possession: A robot in the factory area suffers from this.

  • Duel Boss: The final battle is only between Flaky and Corvus, as all of her allies were warped away to Tartarus by Corvus.
  • Feathered Fiend: Corvus.
  • Fighting Your Friend: Before you can recruit Flippy, you have to calm him down from his flip-out by fighting him.
  • Fire, Ice, Lightning: Flaky can apply one or all of these to herself using either Fire Weapon, Ice Weapon, Thunder Weapon or Reinforce, allowing her to change her regular attack's attribute, resist the element(s), and slightly increase her ATK.
  • Fragile Speedster: Flaky has high AGI (Agility), but okay defenses (with the MDF being on the weaker side).
  • Ghost Town: Happy Tree Town looks abandoned. For one thing, most of the citizens (like Flippy) end up wandering outside the town, and there's even one citizen (Petunia) planning to move (which she eventually does). Most importantly, aside from the lack of other Happy Tree Friends walking around the town (except for Cuddles, who's waiting near the town's exit), there are only a total of 4 buildings, with one of them seeming to be under construction for an indefinite amount of time.
  • Giant Spider: The Spiders that you can encounter in the Waterfall Cave.
  • Glass Cannon: Cuddles hits hard, but can't take hits well.
  • The Goomba: The Slime creatures, which are found in Happy Tree Forest. They're not strong, and are easy to kill.
  • Healing Potion: The classic potion is used for HP recovery. Includes three variants: the regular potion (500 HP), Hi-Potion (2,500 HP) and Full Potion (recovers 100% HP).
  • Heal Thyself: Corvus can heal itself in battle.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Flaky is the hero of this game, and her main Weapon of Choice is a sword. Two of her special attacks involve using a sword, as well.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: Petunia's main damaging magic attack is called Saint, which is Holy-based.
  • An Ice Demon
  • Lethal Lava Land: Happy Tree Volcano (Tree Town Volcano in earlier versions). It's full of lava and Convection Schmonvection is in full effect. Beware of Lava Slimes.
  • Life Drain: There's a skill named this in the game, dealing damage to an enemy and healing the user.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Flippy's highest stat is AGI, allowing him to often take the first turn. While the ATK and DEF stats aren't as great, they're pretty good too, especially if you equip him with better gear.
  • The Lost Woods: The first "dungeon" area you'll face right after leaving the town, called Happy Tree Forest. It's maze-like, and marks the first instance of random encounters (or simply event-based encounters in the full game).
  • Luck-Based Mission: The final battle against Corvus, while it might seem easy due to a huge supply of Elixirs and an instant jump to max level given by Corvus in order to avoid simple Curbstomp Battle where you lose easily, ends up being this instead due to Corvus's skill set. If you're lucky, Corvus will often waste its turns either doing nothing or raising its ATK. If you're really unlucky, it'll spam damaging attacks and ailment-inducing skills like no tomorrow, often leaving you a sitting duck while Corvus keeps reducing your health until there's nothing left. It's even worse in the second phase, where its regular attack deals around 1,000 damage per hit (it hits twice like in the first phase of the battle), when Flaky has around 7,800 HP. Fortunately, it doesn't abuse ailment-inducing skills in the latter phase, but you still have to keep healing yourself.
  • Magic Knight: Flaky is considered one. She not only excels in melee combat (having high ATK stat helps), but she can also use decently-powered magic, though her MAT (Magic Attack) stat isn't as great as her ATK.
  • Mana Potion: The Magic Water item, which heals MP by 200.
  • Meaningful Name: Corvus's name is Latin for "raven", which is what its species is.
  • Monochromatic Eyes: Corvus's eyes are completely white.
  • No Biological Sex: Corvus is genderless, despite being depicted as a male.
  • Occult Blue Eyes: Ice Demon's eyes.
  • One-Winged Angel: After defeating Corvus for the first time, it transforms into Ultra Corvus, which is much tougher.
  • Original Character: Corvus is obviously not part of the canon cast. It's created by mrflipmasterg64 and is owned by Captain Sans Nightmare.
  • Palette Swap: The Lava Slimes, which are simply the red version of the regular blue Slimes. They're definitely stronger, though.
    • The demons in Corvus's Lair are this as well, as they re-use the basic demon sprite (albeit with different colors).
  • Pink Means Feminine: A female demon in Corvus's Lair can be identified not only via name, but also from her pink eyes. She's still as dangerous as the other demons, though.
  • Playing with Fire: Lava Slimes and the Fire Demon are associated with the fire element.
  • Point of No Return: Once you enter Waterfall Cave, this trope is in full effect, as every area after that doesn't allow you to go back to the previous one.
  • Random Encounters: Used to use this system in the alpha versions and early beta version. It was later changed to be strictly event-based, meaning that once you encounter enemies on a specified tile, you can't trigger the encounter on the same tile again. This change also restricts EXP, money, and item gain as a result.
  • Rare Candy: There exist consumable items that, when consumed, raise the user's specific stat. These include Life Up (HP), Power Up (ATK), Resist Up (MDF) and Magic Up (MAT).
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Generally, demons have red eyes.
    • Ultra Corvus has glowing red eyes with white pupils.
  • Red Mage: Petunia can learn both damaging and healing magic skills. She can only learn one damaging magic skill, though.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: The Happy Tree Friends, of course. When it comes to enemies, one notable example are the Slimes.
  • Sequential Boss: The final battle is divided into two phases, with the latter phase pitting you against Ultra Corvus.
  • Shopkeeper: Petunia is this until she joins your party.
    • Toothy is another example, as he opens a shop inside the factory.
  • Shock and Awe: Lightning Demon specializes in Thunder-based attacks.
  • Snow Means Death: In the beginning part of the game, the snowy area that Flaky's in is snowing harshly. Sure, the "death" part is averted due to Cuddles being able to save her, but it can be played straight if he didn't. Before Flaky is back at the snowy area, but now she's surrounded by her friends, signifying a new peaceful life for the Happy Tree Friends.
  • Status Buff: Some skills have this effect on the user, allies, or entire party. An example is Flaky's Magic Barrier, which raises the MDF (Magic Defense) of the entire party.
  • Status-Buff Dispel: The aptly-named Dispel skill, which does just that to an enemy with any Status Buffs present.
  • Status Effects:
    • Silence: Disables magic usage for a few turns.
    • Blind: Severely lowers accuracy of physical attacks.
    • Poison: Saps a bit of HP every turn. Still lingers in the overworld, which saps that poor character's HP every few steps.
    • Sleep: A character suffering from this status ailment can't do anything until woken up, either after a few turns or after getting attacked while asleep.
    • Paralysis: Disables all actions for the character for a few turns.
    • Stun: Similar to Paralysis, but lasts for 1-2 turns.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Fire Demon's eyes. Well, it is a demon.
  • Toothy Bird: Corvus has sharp teeth in its beak. Said teeth have blood on them.
  • Weapon of Choice:
