About this mod

Ever wanted Roronoa Zoro from One Piece in your Stardew Valley game? Ever wanted to date & marry him? No? Well now you can! This mod adds a new custom NPC Roronoa Zoro into Stardew Valley.

Permissions and credits
Who doesn't love our 3 katana wielding, haramaki wearing, directionally challenged first mate of the Straw Hat pirates? What's even better than seeing him in One Piece? Dating and marrying him in Stardew Valley of course! Let's turn our favorite swordsman into a farmer boy and husband.

So how did Zoro end up in Stardew Valley? Well, in an alternate timeline, instead of being sent to Kuraigana Island by Bartholomew Kuma, he sent Zoro to Stardew Valley! And his captain said to meet again in two years time, so now Zoro is stuck here till then. Will you be able to change Zoro's heart and make him stay, or will he leave after the two years is up?

Zoro has around 300 lines of pre-marriage dialogue and around 100 lines of marriage dialogue. I hate how most villagers speak to you only once every day. So I made it so that Zoro has dialogue in almost every major location he enters. He has plenty to say so make sure you talk to him every day and in different locations!

He attends all festivals.
He has seasonal sprites and portraits. Pixel art based on Zoro's actual outfits in the anime.
He has a custom spouse room.
Custom kids who look like him.
Marriage schedule where he still goes to work on Mon, Fri and he 'goes to town' and does his own thing on Wed & Sun. He stays at home Tue, Thu. And Sat is hardcoded in game for him to stay at home.

Gift taste:

The official One Piece wiki says that Roronoa Zoro hates chocolate and dislikes icecream. So guess what I made him hate and dislike in Stardew Valley? Although there is no chocolate in vanilla Stardew Valley (heh, vanilla) so I made him hate
and made him dislike, you guessed it
and dislike other sweet things. It also says that his favorite foods are white rice, Sea King meat,  and anything that goes with sake. So I made him love and like

Custom villager dialogue:

Vanilla villagers who have custom dialogue about Zoro: Willy, Penny, Gus, Clint, Vincent, Lewis, Jodi [These dialogues might or might not show up if you have any mods that edits the dialogue of these people.]

Zoro lives on the first floor in the Boarding House if you have the mod( you can find the mod here But lives in Willy's fish shop otherwise. I really recommend the Boarding House for better immersion (I tried to make his room look really nice).

Heart Event Info:
He comes with 6 heart events at levels 2, 4, 6, 8 ,10, and 12.

2 hearts: Town

4 hearts: Archaeology House

6 hearts: Saloon

8 hearts: Mountains

10 hearts: Beach

12 hearts: Town

Possible Future Updates?:
-Definitely the 14 heart event
-Maybe more year one marriage dialogue
-Maybe more year two+ normal & marriage dialogue
-Maybe more compatible dialogue with other custom NPCs. (Tell me what NPCs you'd like Zoro to have interactions with)
-Maybe more compatibility with other mods
-Maybe custom home above Willy's Fish Shop

-Compatability with NPC Adventures (Optional file): I'm almost done, I'm still trying to figure out how to give Zoro a weapon, so if anyone knows how to, please let me know.              
Mod Compatability:
  • Stardew Valley Expanded- I've been playing Zoro along with the SVE mod and he's been working ok so far
  • Zoro is now compatible with the vanilla game as of 1.1.3
  • Boarding House and Bus Stop Extension

Current custom NPC Compatibility:
  • Nikolai: Zoro has dialogue during Nikolai's festival No longer compatible until Nikolai modder updates/finishes fixing their marketpalooza festival

  • It's minor, but if you have the NPC Jade, her boardinghouse.tmx modifies the map properties and causes Zoro's lamp to not turn on. LemurKat helped me fix this by fixing Jade's boardinghouse.tmx. If it bothers you that his lamp doesn't turn on, you can download the miscellaneous file "Jade's boardinghouse fix". If you don't have the custom NPC Jade, then you shouldn't have any problems with his room.

How to install:
Unpack the .zip into your Stardew Valley mod folder

How to uninstall:
Just delete the NPC Zoro folder from your Stardew Valley mod folder

How to update:
Use your mod manager or manually delete the NPC Zoro folder first from your Stardew Valley mod folder and then replace with new updated one

: Zoro is my first shot at modding, it was a struggle learning how to make a custom NPC. It took me a good six months from start to finish. I started this project in April thinking how long could it take, a month? And only uploaded him in October, so it's been a wild ride. So if there are any hiccups or bugs, please let me know. I'm NOT an artist. This is my first attempt doing pixel art. I had to get someone to commission the portraits for Zoro. But I did most of his sprites, unfortunately. If you think my sprites look absolute garbage and are willing to re-edit them for me, (If I like them) I will upload yours and give you credit.

Legal Disclaimer: I do not sell or make any profit off of this mod. I do not own, or am affiliated in any way to the official character Roronoa Zoro from One Piece.  Any likeness to the anime and manga character Roronoa Zoro is pure imitation and not the actual character or official art. All content of the NPC Roronoa Zoro is purely fan made.

DO NOT UPLOAD THIS MOD TO ANYWHERE ELSE. Please. Custom NPC- Roronoa Zoro will only be accessible through Nexus.

Why Zoro?: I've been bingeing One Piece again and Zoro is one of my favorite characters. I been wanting to create a custom NPC for Stardew Valley for a while now so I thought, why not? Let's put Zoro into the game.
Ya'll not gonna lie, the real truth is I made Zoro cuz I just wanted my female farmer to date & marry the hot samurai man. And suddenly it turned into a 6 month project. Sometimes I wonder if I made his dialogue too romantic during his 8 & 10 heart levels. And then I think naaahhh, it's my rendition of Zoro and I want Zoro to be lubby dubby when he is a boyfriend and husband. If you don't like, don't increase his heart level past 6!

Why download Custom NPC Zoro?: please.

I would like to do a translation for Zoro: If you are up to the task, please send me a message and we can collaborate.

Spot grammar mistakes?: I hate those, too. So just let me know in comments or send me a message if you spot any in his dialogues.

I found a bug, error, something went wrong, etc: Please let me know in the comments or send me a direct message. The only thing I haven't been able to test Zoro on yet is the movies & theater concession dialogues and reactions.

Last comments:
Please let me know how Zoro is doing in your game. Do you like him? Dislike him? Thoughts? I'd love to hear back in the posts section of your experience with him.
