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.
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.
Where is Krobus in Stardew Valley?
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?

|3||You’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?
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 Mornings||Non-Rainy Mornings|
|Sea Urchin||Fried Eel|
|Strange Bun||Lucky Lunch|
|Void Egg||Poppyseed Muffin|
|Void Mayonnaise||Strange Bun|
