SoS: FoMT Kappa Gifts Guide + Marriage Requirements

Kappa is a mythical being that lives in Mother’s Lake. His birthday is on Spring 8th. If you set your farmer’s birthday on the same day, his birthday will be on Spring 9th instead.

He has the same birthday as the Harvest Goddess, so that’s easier to remember if you’re trying to befriend both characters at the same time.


Kappa only stays in Mother’s Lake year-round. Unlike the Harvest Goddess’ waterfall, though, the lake will freeze over in Winter which makes him inaccessible.

You can only give gifts to Kappa in the Spring, Summer, and Autumn.

Gift Preferences

Kappa only accepts Cucumbers as a gift. Every other item is considered as trash or litter that you throw into his lake and will net you LP deductions.

Cucumbers can only be grown in Spring, so it’s best to keep a stockpile of them for use in Summer and Autumn.

Best Gifts for Each Season

Marriage Requirements

Kappa is a special marriage candidate, meaning he doesn’t have the regular heart events that the normal bachelors and bachelorettes have.

But you can directly propose to him after you’ve completed all of his marriage requirements! Just drop a Blue Feather into Mother’s Lake like you’re offering a gift, and you’ll be able to get married from there.

Kappa’s marriage requirements are more or less the same as the Harvest Goddess’, so they’ll require a lot of time and effort to finish.

Check out this list below to see the requirements and some additional tips to complete them faster.

Marriage Requirement How To Complete
6,000 LP or more (Red Heart Level) 1. Offer a cucumber to Kappa every day

Kappa is a special marriage candidate. Marrying him requires you to collect 9 Kappa Orbs, which fuse together into a Kappa Gem that restores your fatigue when equipped.

Also, throwing cucumbers into Kappa’s lake for 10 consecutive days will prompt him to give you a Mysterious Power Berry. This Power Berry cuts your rate of fatigue in half.
