|“||The perfectionist of the Shugafam, this fastidious fellow values precision and detail above all else. It follows that the Shugajo is the namesake of an instrument that requires a finely-honed technique. The secret to its success? Soothing daily mudbaths, which keep the mind clear and the limbs limber (and tinted a rich, chocolatey brown).||”|
A member of the Shugafam, the Shugajo is from the Legendary class of monsters, indicating that it has a notably strong connection with the humanverse and shares a bond with the Grammy Award-winning artist Kristian Bush of Sugarland.
When this monster is idle, it tilts left and right while holding its banjo, and taps its right foot along with the beat. (The Shugajo actually dances a bit off-tempo from the other members of the Shugafam).
This monster's contribution to an island's song is playing its banjo in rhythm with Shugabush.
The Shugajo is only available for purchase or breeding on Shugabush Island.
Earning Rate and Maximum Income
Earning rate is in coins per hour and depends on Happiness % (Likes increase Happiness), also each monster has a limit to how much income it can hold at a time. Increasing the monster's level increases the limit.
Each monster needs to be fed four times before it reaches the next level. Increasing the monster's level increases the coins earned per minute, as well as the maximum coins earned. The food per level is the same for all legendary monsters and can be found in this article.
Every monster has different things that they like. For every unique object that they like that's placed near the monster (if not using a Unity Tree), the monster's happiness will increase by 25%. Placing two of the same liked item near a monster will still only increase happiness by 25%. Below are the things liked by Shugajo:
- Quibble (requires level 4)
- Pipes of Cicado (level 10)
- Fuzzle Tree (level 13)
- Dragon Tower (level 20)
See the Likes page to view a complete list of all monsters' likes.
Some items to take into consideration when designing your island by strategy are number of beds for the monster, rate of income per bed, max income per bed, and time for max income to be reached. The income below is for level 15:
|Number of Beds||3|
|Rate of Income High||290|
|Rate of Income Low||145|
|Rate of Income per Bed High||96.7|
|Rate of Income per Bed Low||48.3|
|Max Income per Bed||15,047.7|
|Time to Max Income @ High||2:35:40 hours|
|Time to Max Income @ Low||5:11:20 hours|

- On December 9th, 2013, Big Blue Bubble tweeted: "A certain Special Edition monster is arriving on Cold Island very soon… but what else is coming? Find out this week!"
- The Shugajo and the Shugarock are the only members in the Shugafam to have visible ears.
