This article is about Kappa, a character from (More) Friends of Mineral Town. You may be looking for Kappa from his appearances within' other games.

Kappa ((かっ)(), Kappa) is a mysterious green creature in Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town.

Kappa lives in the lake. He appears each time you throw a cucumber into the lake, and rarely, you may accidentally catch him while fishing. He is a secret bachelor in More Friends of Mineral Town with special requirements.

Kappa will not be available during the Winter season, due to the lake being frozen over. Being anti-social, he ignores you when you give him a cucumber. However, if you are persistent and throw cucumbers in the lake for 10 consecutive days, you will be rewarded with a special power berry.[2] Cucumbers are the only gift that he will accept.[3]

There are other ways to increase his affection, however. These include: using your pedometer to walk 10,000 steps or more, shipping 10,000 or more of any item, catching 10,000 of any one fish species or more, and digging deep into the mines.[4]
