“...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.”
— Krobus

Krobus is the only friendly monster players will encounter. He is a shadow brute who lives in the sewers because he's too sensitive to sunlight to go outside during the day.

He sells a variety of rare goods.


Krobus cannot travel outside in the sun, so he can always be found in the sewers.


Krobus always sells Void Eggs, Void Essence, and Solar Essence. A Stardrop, Crystal Floor Recipe, Wicked Statue Recipe, and Return Scepter are also available every day until purchased.

One other item of specific quantity will be available for purchase every day:

  • Slime on Mondays
  • Omni Geode on Tuesdays
  • One Fish (drawn from a random subset of fish) or a Magnet on Wednesdays. Each item has a 1/11 chance to appear.
  • Mixed Seeds on Thursdays
  • Iridium Sprinkler on Fridays
  • One cooked dish chosen from a random subset of cooked dishes at a random price between Coin Icon50g -Coin Icon500g on Saturdays. Bread has a 2/51 chance to appear, the other items have a 1/51 chance to appear.
  • Bat Wing on Sundays.

Krobus is a shadow brute and, although he isn't hostile, still refers to other monsters as "his friends". He lives in the sewers and 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.

Quest Name Quest Text Provided By Requirements Rewards
Dark Talisman The Wizard asked me to retrieve the magic ink from his ex-wife's house... but to gain access I'll need a dark talisman. Enter the sewer and ask Krobus about the dark talisman. Railroad cutscene (after completing Community Center or Joja Warehouse tasks) Speak to Krobus and then venture through to the Mutant Bug Lair to retrieve the talisman. Return to the cave at the Railroad with it once it's collected.


  • Krobus states that his name means "bridge-crosser" in his language.
  • Krobus hates being gifted a Strange Bun, however Shadow Brutes in the mine drop them.
  • Krobus also states that he cannot go out of the sewers during day, however this means he may go out during night but is never seen.
  • Krobus could technically be considered the only "friendly" monster in the game.
  • Krobus states he remains silent on Fridays out of respect for Yoba.
