Harvest Sprites are small, dwarven like creatures who make frequent appearances in the Harvest Moon video game series. Depending on the game, they have a catch phrase, like "Yeah" in Magical Melody and "Budum" in Back to Nature. Budum is a subtle reference to Snow white and the seven Dwarves. The character befriends the sprites by bringing them gifts such as bread or flour. Once on good terms, the Harvest Sprites can be hired to help on the farm. They are especially useful if bad weather is coming because they are able to work through snow storms and hurricanes where the character cannot.
