Stardew Valley Wiki


Though there is nothing to suggest that Krobus has a family, he does bear a striking resemblance to one of the enemies you find (starting in level 90) in the mines. However, in one of his dialogue options he says he is "-not like the others". This supports that he is one of the creatures in the mine.


Krobus's shop is always open, even on festival days.


Krobus normally isn't seen outside interacting with other villagers. He dislikes dwarves, stating that a 1,000 year war between the dwarves and his people recently ended. He believes if the dwarves knew where he was, they'd send an assassin.

The Wizard is aware of his presence and intervenes to prevent conflicts.


You can give Krobus up to two gifts per week (plus one on his birthday), which will raise or lower his friendship with you. Gifts on his birthday (Winter 1) will have 8× effect and show a unique dialogue.


This is an amazing gift. For my people it is a honor to receive something like this

Heart Events

After 3 hearts, Krobus will send you a the recipe for a dark sign with the follwing

Player, I'm not sure how this human message system works, so I asked Wizard to help me write this letter.

I hope you are doing okay.

I wanted to share this with you... it's notes on how my people build a certain item.


After achieving 14 hearts, enter the beach between 8pm and 1am on a non rainy day


First Meeting
“A human visitor? This is most unusual...

I'm Krobus, merchant of rare and exotic goods.”


“...Have you encountered others like me, in the mines? I'm sorry if they were hostile towards you. You see, we've learned to fear humans... there have been too many... unpleasant encounters. You haven't... slain any of my friends, have you?”
“I find things here and I sell them. Care to buy anything?”
“Please don't tell anyone about me. Humans tend to destroy things they can't understand.”
“I am too sensitive to sunlight to go out on most days. The conditions in here are perfect. Care to buy anything?”
“Please, don't be alarmed. I am different than the others. I've spent a lot of time observing humans. I know you like to shop. Care to see my wares?”
“Back again? I suppose it does fit into my theory of human behavior.”
“On Fridays I stay silent as a sign of devotion to Yoba.”
“...Sorry, I'm still a little wary of humans. My shop is still open to you, however.”
“You're not like the other humans, are you?”

Rainy day

“Ah, the sewers are flowing quickly today. It'll get nice and humid in here... just how I like it.”

8+ Hearts

“You've opened my eyes to the world of humans. I appreciate that.”
“A 1000 year war between my people and the dwarves recently ended. There's still a lot of resentment on both sides.”

15th of the season, year 1 only

“Please keep my location a secret. If the dwarves knew of me, they'd surely send an assassin.”

After receiving the Void Ghost Pendant

“[Player]... I'm afraid we'll have to keep this a secret... Neither my people nor yours would accept us living together.”
“You know I'll be a very strange person to live with, right? I won't be able to leave the house...”


  • Krobus states that his name means "bridge-crosser" in his language.
  • Krobus hates being gifted a Strange Bun, despite Shadow Brutes in the mines dropping them.
  • Krobus states that he remains silent on Fridays out of respect for Yoba. His normal Friday dialogue is simply "...". Krobus will speak on Fridays under certain circumstances.
    • Rainy days
    • First meeting
    • Attempting to give him a gift after he has been evicted as a housemate
    • Speaking to him about the Dark Talisman quest
  • Attempting to give Krobus a Movie Ticket on Friday results in a dialogue saying "Krobus looks puzzled". Krobus will not attend movies on Fridays.
  • Krobus' Tuesday dialogue changed from "I am too sensitive to sunlight to go out during the day." to "I am too sensitive to sunlight to go out on most days." with v1.3. This change is most likely due to the addition of the "A Winter Mystery" Quest, in which a "Shadow Guy" is seen outdoors during Winter.
