Mark (マルク, Mark) is a bachelor as well as playable and re-namable character in Sunshine Islands.

If the player chooses Chelsea as a character, then Mark will later appear in game, after meeting all of the requirements to unlock him.

Another farmer such as yourself, Mark comes to the island to learn something new about farming. He lives at Carol's Inn on Sprout Island, but also visits the Cafe, Diner, and Chen's store frequently. Mark has done a lot of travelling, and now wishes to settle down, and to have a place to call home. He will often come to your character for farming advice.

Mark has no rival marriage candidate, and will be one of the last villagers to arrive on the island.


In order for Mark to move to the island, certain requirements need to be met.

  • Have all main characters unlocked (do not need Mineral Town characters unlocked).
  • Unlock 15 islands (excluding Sunny Island)
  • Build the bridge to Link Island.


Mark doesn't have any dislikes or loves. Instead, he likes every item equally, even the weeds, rocks, and wood you can find everywhere on your farm and on the islands. This makes him easy to befriend (and marry if you so choose), and you also get an additional 100FP each time you talk to Mark.

Heart Events

Purple Heart Event

  • Verdure Island Diner
  • 12PM - 3PM (Sunny), 4PM - 6PM (Raining, Fridays)
  • Mark has a purple heart level or higher.

Inside the Diner, Mark is sitting at one of the tables eating. Mark likes the diner because the food is great and there's so many different people to talk to, he asks if you'd like to sit with him and eat.

If you accept Mark's invitation, you'll sit down and eat with him. Mark thinks that food tastes better when you eat it with others. Alternatively, you can answer negatively by telling Mark that you'd prefer to eat alone.

Blue Heart Event

  • Location: Chen's house.
  • 3PM until 5PM (any weather)
  • Cannot be a Friday.
  • You have witnessed the purple heart event.
  • Mark has a blue heart level or above. 

Mark is visiting Chen at his home and compliments him on his decor. Chen tells Mark that he once saw a home in the east that he really liked and modeled his home after it. 

Mark figures that means that Chen's dream came true. His dream is to become a rancher, although he is still in training. Chen thinks Mark has a fantastic dream.

Chen notices the resident ranching expert has arrived, although you seem confused at his comment. Mark explains that he was just telling Chen about his dream of becoming a rancher.

» That's a great dream! = Positive answer!

You think so too? Chen confirms that Mark's dream is important, and everyone will be cheering for him. Mark thanks the two of you for your words of encouragement.

» That's hard work, not a dream! = Negative answer.

Mark knows the work will be really hard but that's what makes it worth doing. He is disappointed to hear your negative opinion from someone experienced in farming.

Green Heart Event

» The Inn on Verdure Island » Sunny day: 6:00 am to 9:00 am » Rainy day: 9:00 am to 12:00 pm » Mark at a green heart color or higher » You have seen "Dreams"

Inside the Inn, Mark asks if you're here to visit him. He has always moved from place to place so it is rare that he makes any friends. Sometimes Mark avoids people because he knows he'll eventually have to leave. This island is really nice, and he is glad to have met you.

» I want to leave one day.= Negative answer.

Mark doesn't understand why you would want to leave. You have a ranch, so what would happen to the animals and crops if you go away? Ranchers, such as yourself, have responsibilities.

» I hope you don't leave soon. = Positive answer!

Well he doesn't want to leave because he still has a lot to learn. He is a little embarrassed that you worry about him. Mark admits that he has been thinking about staying on the island for good. He hasn't made up his mind yet but hopes you keep coming to visit him.

Yellow Heart Event

» Walk into your farm house » Sunny day: 10:00 am to 5:00 pm » Not on Cloudy days » Mark at a yellow heart color or higher » You have seen "Leaving and Staying"</p>

The weather is nice today, so Mark has come over to see if you would like to go outside with him.

» Sure! = Positive answer!

The two of you head to the Meadow Island. Usually Mark only comes to the meadow during festivals, but it's pretty when there's nothing going on too. Mark tells you how amazing he thinks you are. Running a ranch all by yourself is very respectable, even though it is hard work. He expected that you would be tired just from tending the animals and crops, but you still take the time to visit him.

You tell him you visit because he is fun to talk to. Mark gets embarrassed, but thanks you for your comment. He is glad that he came to the island and had the chance to meet you.

The event ends back at your farm house at 6:00 pm.

» No thanks. = Negative answer.

He guesses that you're busy, and so he leaves.
