• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Heart no Kuni no Alice ~Wonderful Wonder World~ (Alice in the Land of Hearts) is a girly but bloody Otome Game re-imagining of Lewis Carroll's classic fantasy novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with bishounen characters and added romance. There are three games and a manga of the first game, which is published in English by Tokyopop.

Alice is practical and strong, yet cynical. Alice is kidnapped by a mysterious Bishonen man with bunny ears into a place called the Country of Hearts. Stuck there due to a trick by the mysterious bunny-eared man, she meets the residents of this world. In the world, everyone starts taking to a liking to her at some point due to her being a foreigner.

A movie adaptation was released in Japanese theaters in July 2011.

Tropes used in Heart no Kuni no Alice include:
  • Afraid of Needles: Nightmare. He's so sickly, at one point he coughs up blood because he's happy, but refuses to go to the hospital because of his fear.
  • Alice in Wonderland: The series is based off of the book, but with violence and psychos tossed in.
  • An Axe to Grind: Dee and Dum prefer using axes over guns, unlike most people there.
  • Berserk Button: Don't tease Gowland about his first name.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Ace is easily one of the nicest people in Wonderland when you first see him (manga-wise at least) what with his cheery disposition and willingness to help Alice (even if he does end up getting them lost). The next time he appears, he's wearing a tattered cloak that has bloodstains all over it, and a mask that makes him look like a serial killer. As it turns out, he's one of the most unstable people in Wonderland, and would kill Alice if it wasn't for her heartbeat.
  • Bishonen: Nearly all of the Roleholders in the game. Which might explain why the games are Otome Games. This in turn leads to:
  • Butt Monkey: Most of the bullying Pierce goes through tends to be Played for Laughs. This includes being chased around and getting picked on by Boris, who wants to eat him, and the twins.
  • Cat Boy: One look at Boris' appearance and you can tell that he's obviously this.
  • Cool Big Sis: Alice sees Vivaldi as this. Vivaldi's also a literal cool big sis for Blood.
  • Cuteness Proximity: In the manga, once Peter discovers that Alice loves cute things, he turns into his rabbit form more often. With predictable results. Lampshaded by Alice herself, who notes that it's the same old annoying Peter, but he's just so gosh darn cute as a bunny...
  • Creepy Twins: Tweedle Dum and Dee.
  • Dances and Balls: The climax of the first game.
  • Death Is Cheap: Everyone in Wonderland has a clock instead of the heart in their chests which allows them to be replaced. Which is why the world is so violent most of the time.
  • Down the Rabbit Hole: It's more of the white rabbit kidnapping Alice and throwing her down the rabbit hole.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Nightmare. And yes, despite what he's like, he actually is quite powerful.
  • The Faceless: Anyone who isn't a Roleholder doesn't get a face.
  • Fantastic Racism: In Wonderland, mice face discrimination from most of the other residents. Pierce Villiers, a mouse and a Roleholder, is no exception to this. Hence, he tends to be disliked by most of of the cast, and even goes through abuse by the hands of some of the characters.
  • Forceful Kiss: Peter forces her to take a potion that way that makes her stuck in in Wonderland. Though, it's revealed in Bad End 2 of Heart no Kuni that Alice could have gone back home anytime she wished.
  • Funny Foreigner: Everyone sees Alice as this.
  • Gender Blender Name: Mary Gowland.
  • The Glomp: The twins are fond of doing this to Alice. Unfortunately for her, they tend to be holding axes while doing this.
  • Gory Discretion Shot: Whenever anyone is shot in the head. Stabbing someone in the neck is perfectly fine though.
  • Henpecked Husband: The King.
  • Jerkass: Considering that, in the manga, Blood has attempted to strangle Alice, eventually started acting like a whiny brat, and then pointed his gun at her for no reason, how can he NOT be considered this?
  • Les Yay: Despite Vivaldi's route in the first game being a friendship route, some fans might interpret their relationship as something deeper.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Julius.
  • Megane: Peter, and Julius when he's working.
  • Multiple Endings: In the games, you can get multiple endings.
  • Names to Run Away From Really Fast: Blood Dupre, the mafiosi Mad Hatter.
  • Nice Hat: Blood is the Mad Hatter, after all.
  • No Sense of Direction: Ace.
  • Nonstandard Game Over: If you don't visit Vivaldi/the Twins at least once when you stay at the Castle/the Hatter's, Alice will be murdered.
  • Only One Name: Ace, Joker, and Vivaldi.
  • Sexy Discretion Shot: Peppered throughout the game, but noticeably at the ball event where just about everybody gets one.
  • Sugar and Ice Personality: Julius tends to be one of these. His job probably doesn't help with his attitude...
  • Petting Zoo People: Let's see. One white rabbit, one march hare (who insists he's not), a cheshire cat, and a dormouse. All with very cute ears and tails.
  • Princess Curls: Vivaldi.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Peter White sure has a thing for Alice. To the point that he'd shoot someone if they ever dare look at her.
  • Stepford Smiler: Ace, for one.
  • Tall, Dark and Bishoujo: Vivaldi. Makes sense considering she's Blood's sister.
  • Tall, Dark and Handsome: Blood Dupre, Julius, Gray, and Nightmare.
  • Telepathy: Nightmare can do this to almost everybody.
  • Trapped in Another World: Alice gets kidnapped and thrown into Wonderland. Subverted though since it's revealed in Bad End 2 of the first game that Alice could've left Wonderland anytime she wanted to.
  • Trickster Twins: Dee and Dum, of course. Their tricks, however, tend to be deadly or... suggestive.
  • Tsundere: Alice in the manga is a Type B for Blood.
  • Twin Switch: Dee and Dum enjoy messing with people by pretending to be each other.
  • Unwanted Harem: One way to look at it.
  • White-Haired Pretty Boy: Peter.
  • Yandere: Specifically Ace. Oh god, Ace.
    • Peter's got some of of this going for him, too, although he's generally cheerful about it and it's probably just protectiveness.
