Intimidating (known as "Intimidate" in-game) is an aspiration introduced in The Urbz: Sims in the City and The Sims 2 (portable) but this feature is only in the GBA, DS[1] and PSP versions.

The Urbz: Sims in the CityEdit

In The Urbz, Intimidate is a social that mostly reduces relationship points with most Urbz but when Intimidate is used on some Urbz (such as Dusty Hogg) it will increase the relationship.

The Sims 2 for Game Boy AdvanceEdit

This article or section is being considered for merging with Aspirations (The Sims 2 GBA). See the discussion page for details.

In The Sims 2 on Game Boy Advance Intimidating is one of the 3 aspirations available. With this you get extra points for each Intimidating conversation you have in an episode (you will only gain points for 5 conversations per episode).

The Sims 2 for Nintendo DSEdit

Calm Down is used instead of Intimidate from the GBA and PSP Version, although it plays the Intimidate music from The GBA Version when the user is about to calm down a Sim.

The Sims 2 for Sony PSPEdit

Intimidate in the PSP version is similar to the GBA Version. In The Sims 2 for PSP, Intimidate will unlock a Dark Secret after Friend 4 or Romance 4 and Intimidating can also cause an enemy if this is done. (Intimidate has to be unlocked however)


  1. In the DS version, Calm Down is used instead of "Intimidate".
