This article is about Cliff, a character from Back to Nature. You may be looking for Cliff in his other appearances throughout the series.

Cliff (クリフ Cliff) is a character in Harvest Moon: Back To Nature, Harvest Moon: Back to Nature for Girl, and Harvest Moon: Boy & Girl. He is one of the eligible bachelors in Harvest Moon for Girl and Boy & Girl if female player character is selected.

Cliff is a drifter who has found his way to Mineral Town. He stays at the Inn, where Doug has seemed to have taken quite a liking to him. Other times, he spends a lot of time at the Church with Carter. Cliff is very shy, and seems to have a lot of problems in his life. He is very distant from most people until he's befriended.

At the start of the game, he is jobless, but through in game events, he can end up with a job at the Winery. If Cliff doesn't manage to get the job, he will leave Mineral Town permanently. If this happens, he will not be available as a bachelor in the female version. In the male version, the competition for Ann's affection will be eliminated if you are pursuing her, but means the two will never get married if you are not.

Getting a Job

In Fall of Year 1, Cliff will express his concerns. He is running out of money, and thinks it's time to move to a new town soon. There is a job that opens up at Aja Winery during this season. If you are able to get Cliff this job, he will stay in town and work with Duke and Manna at the Winery. If you do not get Cliff the job, he will leave Mineral Town permanently.
If Cliff stays in the village, he will continue to live at the Inn after he is done working at the Winery. Him and Ann will fall in love and eventually marry. If he leaves the village, Ann will remain single forever.
