“I'm renting my room from Marnie at a really good price. It's small but I can't complain. If I could reset my life maybe I'd start a chicken farm. Only free-range eggs of course.”
— Shane

Shane is a villager in Pelican Town who is often rude and unhappy, and suffers from depression and alcohol dependence. However, his attitude starts to change towards any player who chooses to befriend him. He works at JojaMart most days between 9am and 5pm, and after work he frequently spends his evenings in The Stardrop Saloon. He doesn't work on the weekend except on rainy days, and is frequently around the ranch.

In the Social Status menu, Shane's outfit will change to a Joja Corporation uniform when he is at his job at JojaMart. He's one of the twelve characters available to marry.

Schedule

If it is raining, Shane will go to work at JojaMart on Saturdays or Sundays, if the Community Center is not complete. He will also go to work at JojaMart until the day after completing the Community Center. Otherwise, he is usually found at The Stardrop Saloon in the evenings.

I thought it would be fun to send you a letter. I don't really know what to write, though.

Okay, see you soon.

Four Hearts

After reaching four hearts with Shane, his dialogues with you will become more friendly.

Four Hearts.png

Enter Marnie's Ranch at any time.

Details 
Shane is found passed out in his room, surrounded by empty beer cans. Marnie asks you to do something, so you use your watering can on his head to wake him up. Marnie remarks that all he does is mope around and drink beer. When Marnie asks him what his plans for the future are, Shane says that he hopes he "won't be around long enough to need a plan." Jas overhears and runs away crying; Marnie follows her while Shane looks at the ground and murmurs an apology.

Shane 4 Hearts.png

Six Hearts

Six Hearts.png

Enter Cindersap Forest between 9am and 8pm while storming or raining.

Details 
Shane is laying face down at the edge of the cliffs, again surrounded by beer. He tells you that he's miserable and asks you why he shouldn't just roll off the cliff. You can respond in four different ways:
  • "Because there's so much to live for!" (No effect on friendship.) "Maybe for you, but not for me! You're not going to understand... Just... go away. ...Ugh..."
  • "Jas needs you. You're like a father to her." (No effect on friendship.) "...You're right. Jas... Ugh, God... I'm a horrible, *hic*... selfish person. Now I feel even worse..."
  • "It would be a sin." (No effect on friendship.) "Yoba...? (Player), don't you know I'm an athiest? Ugh..."
  • "The decision is your own. Just know that I'm here for you." (No effect on friendship.) "Thanks... I appreciate that... I really do."

Shane 6 Hearts 1.png Shane 6 Hearts 2.png

After that Shane suggests that you should take him to the hospital, in the next cutscene Harvey treats his physical ailments but is more concerned about Shane's mental health. He tells you that he's going to recommend Shane to a counselor in Zuzu City once he wakes up.

The next day, Shane will arrive at your farm to tell you that he intends to go to counselling. He also apologizes for the incident at the cliffs, to which you can respond in three different ways:

  • "I'm glad I was there to help." (+10 friendship.) "...Yeah, me too."
  • "You needed a serious wake-up call." (-10 friendship.) "I know... That's why I stopped by, to tell you about it."
  • "I'm just happy you're still here." (+10 friendship.) "Wow, it was that serious, huh? I can hardly remember..."

Seven Hearts I

Seven Hearts.png

Enter Marnie's Ranch while Shane is home after triggering Shane's six heart event.

Details 
Shane enters the ranch, where Marnie is standing behind the counter. He tells her that he's been feeling happier than usual. Jokingly, she asks if there was a sale on beer. Though slightly annoyed, he responds by saying he's started drinking sparkling water instead. He then says that he's realized that he has people that he can rely on and that doing so doesn't make him weak. He walks over to Jas, who is in the kitchen, and gives her a present. She opens it to find a pair of expensive shoes that she had wanted. When she asks Shane how he could afford it, he replies that it's because he cut back on his expensive habit of drinking beer.

Seven Hearts II

Seven Hearts.png

Enter the town between 10am and 4pm on a sunny day. (Also requires 2 hearts with both Emily and Clint.)

Details 
You will find Shane filming a scene starring Emily and Clint. Shane will explain to you that Joja is holding a contest to create an advertisement for the newest Joja Cola, and the winner gets Gold.png10,000g. He will ask you to walk behind Clint and Emily as they act so the scene feels more natural. When it's over, he will thank you for helping him.

* This event was Shane's six heart event before update 1.1.

Eight Hearts

Eight Hearts.png

Enter Marnie's Ranch while Shane is home.

Details 
When you enter the ranch, Jas leads you through the door in the kitchen that is normally locked. Inside, Shane is painting a sign that says "Fresh Eggs." He's surrounded by his flock of special blue chickens and his favorite white chicken, Charlie. Once he finishes painting the sign, he picks up Charlie and briefly talks to her about his ambitions and his struggles. When you and Jas enter the room, Shane talks to you a bit about how he is trying to pass on the chicken knowledge to Jas so she can continue the tradition if he ever moves out.

Shane 8 Hearts.png

After seeing this event, each chicken that the player purchases from Marnie and each egg that hatches in the incubator now has a 1/4 chance of being blue. Aside from appearance, the blue chickens are identical to white chickens.

Ten Hearts

Ten Hearts.png

Exit your house before 6:30am to initiate the event, then walk to the Bus Stop between 4pm and 6pm.

Details 
Shane invites you to go see the Zuzu City Tunnelers (a gridball team) play in their stadium in Zuzu City. You take a bus into the city together and the scene changes to a grimy stadium with you and Shane in the stands. While cheering on the Tunnelers, Shane thanks you for sticking with him through his struggle with depression and anxiety. He then asks you what you think of your first gridball game:
  • "Noisy... It makes me appreciate how peaceful it is back home." (No effect on friendship.) "Oh yeah? I guess that makes sense. Me? I get bored with Pelican Town sometimes. But... I like that you're different. We balance each other out."
  • "Fun... Pelican Town seems really boring in comparison." (No effect on friendship.) "Oh really? I'm surprised... Didn't you move to Stardew Valley to escape the noise of the city? I mean... Don't get me wrong, I totally understand. My life in Pelican Town is pretty bland, you know."

His attention returns to the game when the Tunnelers make a play and score a goal. In a moment of excitement, Shane gives you a kiss, but then he feels embarrassed by it and apologizes for getting carried away. After a pause, you reply with a kiss and allay his fears. The scene fades out and Shane briefly reflects on the evening.

Group Ten-Heart Event

Ten Hearts.png

If the player is unmarried and has given a bouquet to all available bachelors, raised friendship with each bachelor to 10 hearts, and seen each bachelor's 10-heart event, then entering The Stardrop Saloon will trigger a cutscene.

Details 
If the player has a Rabbit's Foot in inventory, the cutscene will consist of a friendly game of pool.

If the player does not have a Rabbit's Foot in inventory, all bachelors will express anger about the player dating them all at one time. Regardless of the player's dialogue choice(s), all bachelors will decide to give the player the "cold shoulder" for about a week after the event. They will give angry dialogue when interacted with, and refuse gifts. After about a week, all bachelors will forgive the player, and dialogues return to normal.

This event will trigger only one time per save file.

Marriage

Main article: Marriage

Once married, Shane will move into the farmhouse. Like other marriage candidates, he will add his own room to the right of the bedroom. He'll also set up a small chicken coop behind the farmhouse, where he'll sometimes go to visit with his chicken "Charlie".

On rainy days, Shane may offer you Beer, Large Egg, Pale Ale, Void Egg, or Pepper Poppers. On days when Shane stays inside the farmhouse all day, he may offer you Omelet, Pepper Poppers, or Pizza.

“Hey, if I ever seem cranky, just ignore it. I get in weird moods sometimes, but it's not about you... okay?”
“Ah...life on the farm sure beats working at Joja. That place was disgusting. You thought it was depressing out front? Kid, you should see the backroom...”
