Rune Factory 3 (ルーンファクトリー3, Ruun Fakutorii 3) is the fourth game in the Rune Factory series, and the third for Nintendo DS.


Tasked with raising the farm arround the massive Sharance Tree, Micah learns that for some reason the tree has not bloomed for fifty years, and since then the land started decaying. After recovering the ability to transform into a golden wooly, he discovers that he is a half-monster and decides to keep his true nature a secret from the other villagers. He also makes contact with a Univir settlement located in a desert, but only interacts with them in his wooly form, hiding his human form from them. Both the villagers and the Univir had a friendly relationship in the past, but since a few decades before, they started to dislike each other, but Micah eventually gains the trust of the Univir and the townsfolk and manages to have them settle their differences and resume their peaceful friendship. When Micah finally becomes engaged with one of the game's heroines, his bride mysteriously disappears on their wedding day and he sets into a temple located on an island near the beach to find her. Reaching the deepest part of the ruins, Micah is forced to confront Aquaticus, a large water dragon who is keeping his lover imprisoned, claiming that humans and monsters should never become together and he, a half-monster, should not marry another race. Seeing Micah's determination to fight for his betrothed, Aquaticus reveals that all was part of his plan to have both humans and monsters truly reconciled so then the Sharance Tree could be fully restored. The game ends with Micah and his bride's marriage under a full blooming Sharance Tree.
