Exiting Krobus' shop menu and re-opening it allows the player to purchase multiple items that are intended to be "one per day" only (e.g., Omni Geodes, Iridium Sprinklers).


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 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.

For loved or liked gifts, Krobus will say

“A birthday gift? That's very kind of you! I love it.”
“You remembered my birthday! Thank you, this is great!”

For neutral gifts, Krobus will say

“Oh, a birthday gift! Thank you.”

For disliked or hated gifts, Krobus will say

Image Name Description Source



  • 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 could be considered the only "friendly" monster in the game.
  • Krobus states that he remains silent on Fridays out of respect for Yoba. (A minor bug causes his 'rainy day' dialogue to override the '...' dialogue he normally has on Fridays, however.)
  • 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.
