The article seems to imply that she may be a student at the local high school; however, she never appears in-game and is purely a lore character.
- Bee, Nerissa - Nerissa Bee is the owner of Nerissa's Own Clothing Store (a community lot introduced in The Sims 2: FreeTime). She is only mentioned in the description of the lot and does not appear in the game itself.
- Brassbeard, Captain - Captain Brassbeard is a pillager and plunderer named in the description of various objects from the set "Buccaneer's Bounty" from The Sims 3 Store.

- The Sims 4: Get Together. Copernicus is most likely based off of the real life Nicolaus Copernicus, who created the heliocentric theory.

- Cosecha, Madre - Madre Cosecha is a Sim mentioned in the description of the "Statue of Madre Cosecha" object from The Sims 4: Jungle Adventure. According to the description, Madre founded Selvadorada and helped the people settle it during a time of great famine.
- Crumplebottom, Robert - Robert Crumplebottom was a renowned philanthropist and puppeteer, as mentioned in the Crumplebottom Memorial Park lot description from The Sims: Hot Date. It is mentioned in the description for the "Crumplebottom Chandelier" from The Sims: Vacation, that he died when the chandelier dropped a full two stories and landed on him. The Prima official game guide stated that Robert was the late husband of Miss Crumplebottom (referred to erroneously as Mrs. Crumplebottom in the guide). However, The Sims 3 confirms that Miss Crumplebottom's late husband was named Erik Darling, creating a small plot inconsistency (unless Agnes married Robert later in life, only to be widowed again. Assuming Robert wasn't born a Crumplebottom or his kinship with Agnes being distant enough). It may be that canonically, Robert Crumplebottom was in fact the husband of Mrs. Crumplebottom, a different character often confused with Miss Crumplebottom, who appeared in The Sims 2 Nightlife.
D[edit | edit source]
- The Sims. He is most likely based on the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, who is an important spiritual leader of Tibetan budhism.

Based on the meaning of his surname and the contents of his movies (in an interview he mentions liking lots of car chases and explosions), he seems to be a parody of real-world film director Michael Bay.
