Toby (タオ Tao) is a character in Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility. He is one of the eligible bachelors to court!

Toby is a carefree fisherman who at first seems completely absorbed with nothing but fishing. Beyond that though he's quite sensitive. He's reserved and polite, takes things slow, loves nature, and sleeping.

Toby will give you your fishing rod when you first meet him. He can first be encountered by visiting Cream Beach (nearest to On the Hook).

6-Heart Event (Confession Event)

Harvest Moon Tree of Tranquility - Toby – Proposal

Once you have it, go straight to Toby and hand him the blue feather. He will then say, "Whoa... lets go somewhere else to talk about that." You will be sent over to Darren's Tree. He will say, "That's a blue feather... I'm stunned. Um, you use it for marriage proposals. You know that, don't you?" *nods* "I see. Thank you very much. I'm honored..... I'm totally in love with you, too." You will be sent to Town Hall to talk about the marriage date. You can choose any option, but the date will still be the same.

  • In order to see this event you need to finish the request of getting him the rock lobster.


Dreamy Child.png

The bundle of joy you get from marrying Toby will have friendly and laid-back personality. Regardless of whether it's a boy or a girl, they will have brown, dreamy eyes, a soft smile, and brown hair. The boy's hair will be medium brown and looks a little unkempt, like bedhead. The girl's hair will be light brown, shoulder-length, and curled at the ends.


Unlike most Harvest Moon games, the rival couple can get married then even have a child that can grow older.


You're not the only one attracted to a bachelor, you'll find out that you have a competitor for marriage. These rivals have conditions before they can marry the chosen bachelor. They need to trigger three events before they are able to marry the marriage candidate. The rival couple will marry one week later.

The advantage of getting the couple married is that they are resulted with only one child. Each couple has a unique child that takes traits from both parents.

In Toby's case, your rival is Renee and their rival child is Matt.

Rival Events

(NOTE! In order to trigger rival events, befriend the person of YOUR character's gender to an appropriate heart number! These events will occur in the same location at approximately the same time with the same needed conditions to trigger them.)

If you befriend a rival on same gender as your main character then rival event will not occur, so that person will like the player more than his/her rival.

2-Heart Event


Harvest Moon Tree of Tranquility - Renee & Toby - Rival Event 1

Enter Caramel Falls on a sunny or cloudy Monday at 1pm!

Renee hopes that Toby didn't see her trying to get that fish so she asked and Toby said that he just arrived. Renee told Toby that her fishing line broke from the fish so Toby then fixes it.

This event will happen when you are good friends with Toby if you're a male or good friends with Renee if you're a female and you have to get two hearts on the same gender out of these rivals in order to make this event happen.
