Stardew Krobus: Full Guide to His Likes, Schedule, and More

 Have you met the monster who lives by the Sewers? He’s quite the contrary of most mobs in Stardew Valley since you can befriend him! Here’s a guide to learning more about the best gifts for him, his schedule, and his shop.

A player talking to Krobus in Stardew Valley.
He’s different from most NPCs- like literally.

The moment you obtain the Rusty Key from Gunther, you’ll get to access the Sewers. Acquiring the key only requires you to donate 60 items to the Museum. After completing the donation, you’ll immediately get it as a reward!

However, what– perhaps who will you find in this newly unlocked area in Stardew Valley? He’s Krobus, a  new character that you can befriend and even ask to be your roommate. In this guide, we’ll discuss his absolute likes, schedule, and more!

Who is Krobus in Stardew Valley?

He’s a kind monster who’s good friends with other hostile monsters. On the game’s wiki, you’ll find him apologizing for his friends’ malice towards you. He hints that this was because of their issues with mortals from the past. Nonetheless, he’s different from most of them since he does no harm. 

Moreover, Krobus is a businessman– perhaps, a business monster, who runs a shop in the Sewers. It’s always open and you’ll find different items in its stock. A fun fact about him is his name means “bridge-crosser” in his language.


He doesn’t have any friends, but it was well-noted that he and the dwarves have immense hatred for each other after their 1,000-year war. Krobus and the Wizard also know each other but they’re not exactly friends, the sorcerer intervenes with anything that may cause trouble for anyone.

It’s more organized than it looks.

As mentioned, you’ll always find him in the Sewers once you unlocked the place. He doesn’t have a lot of things going on in his life. Even when he becomes your roommate, his schedule won’t change.

What Can You Find in Krobus’ Shop?

This store offers both unique and common loots. You might want to visit it and purchase something that’ll make your gameplay better in Stardew Valley. Although you should beware that they’re quite overpriced and may leave you broke if you attempt to make a bulk purchase.

Heart Events 

A player reaching 14 Friendship Hearts with Krobus in stardew valley.
He’s having fun, and that’s really cute.

He doesn’t have a lot of heart events, but strengthening your friendship with him can be worth your while since he has interesting dialogues. Anyway, below are his special events in Stardew Valley:

No. Of HeartsEvent
3You’ll receive a crafting recipe from him known as the Dark Sign. He notes that he asked for the Wizard’s aid in writing this mail.
14 If you enter the beach around 8 PM to 1 AM, you’ll find him sitting by the docks as he watches the moonlight jellies. 
A sea monster then appears and takes him for a ride– an event that Krobus seemed to enjoy.

Can you be roommates with Krobus?

A player asking Krobus to be his roommate in Stardew Valley.
He’ll make a great roomie, don’t you think?

Suppose that you don’t want to marry any villager but would like a companion in your home– Krobus is just one Void Ghost Pendant away. Offering this ornament allows you to have him as a roommate in your farmhouse. Once he moves in, a chest will replace him in the Sewers, which contains his products. 

Here are the things you should expect once he becomes your housemate:

  • You can’t kiss him, but you may hug him.
  • There won’t be any ceremony, but it’ll take three days still for him to move in.
  • You can adopt or have a child with him, but he would help take care of your children from your former spouse.
  • He won’t get jealous of other NPCs.
  • He won’t help you out on your farm and other chores.
  • He won’t use the stone path behind your farmhouse.

Moreover, you can evict him from your house for free. But do expect that he’d treat you coldly if you do this. You may erase his memory as well by using the Dark Shrine of Memories from the Witch’s Hut.

Additionally, he may occasionally offer you these meals depending on the weather:

On Rainy MorningsNon-Rainy Mornings
Sea UrchinFried Eel
Strange BunLucky Lunch
Void EggPoppyseed Muffin
Void MayonnaiseStrange Bun
Void Salmon
