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.

It looks very similar to the Shugabush, except for having a top hat, browner limbs, and a lime-green beard instead a green beard.

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.

Feeding Monsters

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.

  • Pipes of CicadoGo to Pipes of Cicado
  • Fuzzle TreeGo to Fuzzle Tree

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:

  • Shugajo is part of a whole new family of monsters, the Shugafam, native to the Shugabush Island. This information was discovered via an in-game loading screen, before the island was officially revealed.
  • 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.
  • Shugajo’s hat resembles that of Abraham Lincoln’s.
