This article is about Cliff, a character from Friends of Mineral Town. You may be looking for Cliff in his other appearances throughout the series.

Cliff is an eligible bachelor in Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town.

Cliff is a wandering traveler who has found himself in Mineral Town. He is shy and distant from everybody, and can be found at the Church. He is especially shy around Ann, who will be your rival for marriage in the girl version. When he isn't at the church, he stays on the second floor of the Inn

In Fall of the first year, he's thinking about leaving permanently. You can get him to stay by asking him to help out at the Winery during the Fall.

If Cliff does leave town, you will still receive a New Years card from him every year. [1]

Other Events

Duke will come knocking on your door on the morning of Fall 14. He asks if you could help to harvest grapes at the winery tomorrow. If you offer to help, Duke will tell you to come to the winery at 10AM the following day. [15] To help with the work, Duke suggests that you look for somebody to bring with you.

If you speak to Cliff, he will be happy to help (since he's unemployed anyways). The two of you can then go to the winery and help with the harvest for the afternoon. Manna and Duke both thank you for your hard work when the day is over, and Duke even offers Cliff a permanent job at the winery! Cliff is happy and decides to take the job, which will keep him from moving out of Mineral Town.

The scene shows you, Kai, and Popuri scrambling around the restaurant trying to serve everybody.

After all the customers have been served, your character, Kai, and Popuri are alone in his restaurant. Kai is tired after working so hard. He tells Popuri that he's grateful for the customers, but she brought too many! Popuri apologizes for overdoing it and Kai admits that he might be glad that he has such few customers. He thanks your character and you go home.

Clinic Controversy

If you enter Rose Square during a snowy day in Winter after 10AM, you can see Cliff standing in the middle reminiscing about his family. He will then faint and he will drop a photograph. Your rucksack must have one empty slot before you are able to trigger this event so that you can pick up Cliff's photo. [18]

You will take Cliff to the clinic and he will lie on the bed to rest. Doctor examines Cliff and tells you that he will be fine. You then leave the clinic, but then realize that you still have Cliff's photo. Cliff will wake up when you go to give the photo back to him, and he will tell you a story about his family. Cliff left his sister and mother to explore the world, but when he returned, his sister had moved away and his mother had passed on. Before he can tell you more, he goes back to sleep,and he will not wake up again until four days later.

If you faint during the time Cliff is resting in the bed when you first enter the clinic, Cliff will be kicked out of his bed to make room for you. When you've been put into Cliff's bed, Cliff will faint in the hospital lobby, as he is still feeling weak. After that, Elli will drag him out of the clinic as if he were dead.[19]

Ann's Personality

After Ann and Cliff are married, visit the Inn between 6 and 8AM. In order to get inside the Inn so early, you'll also need to be good friends with Doug. It has to be raining, and it cannot be winter.[20]

Inside, you'll see that Ann and Cliff are in the middle of an argument. Ann is upset that Cliff doesn't think that she's ladylike enough and thinks that her husband should love her for the way that she is! Cliff is quick to realize the error of his ways and apologizes.
