The Harvest Sprites (コロボックル Korobokkuru) are tiny, elf-like, magical beings that are often featured in the games of the Harvest Moon franchise. Their functions vary from game to game; in some, befriending them will gain you access to their services, and they can help you on your farm and tend to your animals, while in other games, they are only interactive as villagers, or serve as major characters to the plot.
They were renamed to Nature Sprites in the latest games that are under the Story of Seasons name due to Natsume's trademark on the previous name.
