Here are the strangest things about The Sims games!
The Sims games are mostly about traits. Whether you chose your traits when you made your Sim or got them as you played, they shape your Sim’s personality and how he or she acts. But some of these qualities are a bit strange.
There’s nothing wrong with being strange, of course. But when you step back and really think about it, you can’t help but notice how out of place these traits are. Here are our top picks for the strangest traits in The Sims games, from never having to go to the bathroom to always thinking about tasty grilled cheese sandwiches.
Evil is one of the strange things that can happen to your Sim. Just bad.
There is nothing deeper, more meaningful, or even morally fuzzy about it. If you give this trait to your Sim, they will be a bad person who enjoys doing bad things.
Some of these things are being happy when other Sims get hurt, destroying things, laughing like a supervillain, choosing to make enemies instead of friends, and just being a pain to hang out with in general. So, unless you want to be the worst friend in the world, you should avoid this trait and choose something more positive instead.
Can’t Stand Art
Not everyone likes going to art museums, but you’ve probably looked at art at least once in your life. But if your Sim has the quality “Can’t Stand Art,” you can expect a lot of “hot hate takes.”
When a Sim has this trait, they dislike art so much that (you got it) they can’t stand it.
Before you ask, yes, this hate also happens at home. Because these Sims would rather live in a plain, empty house with only the things they need than in a house with decorations.
Even though not liking art isn’t the worst thing in the world, it’s kind of sad to never be able to enjoy a good landscape picture or a piece of fan art.
Has your Sim ever had to go to the bathroom and things went wrong? Don’t worry if they have, you’re not the only one. Sims are known for forgetting their basic needs, but if you’re tired of mopping up puddles, here’s a weird trait that can help you and your Sim out.
If your Sim gets the Steel Bladder trait, he or she will feel like staying home. This means you can say goodbye to embarrassing scenarios and extra showers you don’t need.
In the long run, not going to the bathroom probably isn’t good for you, but it does make it easier to play.
The Spa Membership trait is strange because it gives you a free membership to the spa for life. There are no secret costs or big Simoleon bills to pay; you can just walk in. You can’t even get out of the subscription!
It’s a good trait to have if you like getting back rubs, manicures, and yoga classes every day. But other than that, it’s interesting that your Sim’s personality can be based completely on a free product.
You can be good, funny, and creative if you have certain qualities. So it’s a bit strange to have a free deal that lasts forever.
Move over, wine experts, there’s a new expert in town. This new expert is the Afizzionado, a Sim who has learned the art of carbonation. A Sim with this trait can make all kinds of drinks, from fizzy juices to healthy kombucha.
The Afizzionado trait was added with The Sims 4: Eco Lifestyle Expansion Pack. It is a prize for people who have reached the highest level of Juice Fizzing. Once a Sim reaches this high level of fame, they will always be able to make the best, fizziest drinks in Evergreen Harbor.
Sacred Knitting Knowledge
The name of the Sacred Knitting Knowledge trait makes it sound like you get it after going on a dangerous and time-consuming quest. Well, you’re right that it takes a lot of time.
If a Sim wants to get the Sacred Knitting Knowledge, they will have to go through a lot of knitting tests.
When you earn this trait, your Sim will be able to make the ugly but cute Forbidden Sweater and the cute yarn character from 8 Ball Pool. Most importantly, if your Sim has the Sacred Knitting Knowledge, they can give away all the made things they want without fear of being turned down.
Death By Cowplant
Death is nothing to laugh about. But in The Sims, death can lead to some pretty funny situations and even stranger ghost features.
Like Death by Cowplant, for example. For those who don’t know what or who the Cowplant is, imagine a plant with a giant, slightly evil-looking cow face growing out of it.
This plant needs meat to live, and if it isn’t cared for properly, it will go on its own and eat Sims to stay alive. If your Sim is the unlucky person who ends up on the dinner menu, they will die and get the Death by Cowplant trait as a ghost.
At least when your Sim meets the Grim Reaper, they will have something interesting to say.
Who doesn’t like a plate of delicious grilled cheese? Not the Sim who has the trait Melt Master! The Melt Master trait is a Reward Trait that Sims get if they have shown that they love the warm, gooey sandwich.
With this feature, your Sim will not only be able to paint beautiful pieces of cheesy art, but they will also be able to summon grilled cheese sandwiches wherever they want.
In the woods? They can call the bread to them. At an event? Bring the cheese over. At a marriage? Yes, the melted beauty can be called there as long as the happy couple doesn’t mind the smell.
Death By Killer Chicken
If all of a sudden Death by Killer Chicken shows up on your list of traits, it’s clear what happened to your Sim. Death by Killer Chicken is a trait that your ghost Sim gets when they lose a bloody fight with an angry farm bird. It came out with the Cottage Living Expansion Pack.
If you don’t want your Sim to die too soon (and have the Grim Reaper make fun of them), try not to bother your bird friends and make sure they have everything they need.
Death By Killer Rabbit
What could be stranger than dying from a chicken attack? What if you had to tell the Grim Reaper that a bunny killed you? Like Death by Killer Chicken, Death by Killer Rabbit is a trait that your dead Sim can get from the Cottage Living pack.
You basically decided to pick on a cute little rabbit, and the rabbit chose to fight back. Since making friends with these mammals with fluffy tails gives you extra help in the yard and extra gifts, it’s better to be nice to the bunny than to be mean to it.
