Shantae Wiki

Part of Scuttle Town in Shantae.

Scuttle Town (briefly known as Ammo Town in Risky's Revenge and The Pirate's Curse) is a fishing port town. Shantae is the 'Guardian Genie' (actually only a half-genie) of the town and is responsible for its protection. The town is run by Mayor Scuttlebutt. Mimic lives here when he isn't out adventuring - he is first seen when his workshop is destroyed and then hangs out on a dock during the course of Shantae. By the time of Risky's Revenge, he owns a new workshop. It is also home to Shantae's friends Sky and Bolo as of Risky's Revenge. Scuttle Town has an Arabian architectural style.

In addition to being a hub town, Scuttle Town is the first level of Shantae, The Pirate's Curse, and Half-Genie Hero.

In Risky's Revenge, Scuttlebutt is forced to sell the town to the Ammo Baron in order to save it from financial collapse. Shantae delivers the town deed, and the Baron renames it to Ammo Town. At the end of the game, Mayor Scuttlebutt says he is going to get the town back.

In The Pirate's Curse, however, the Ammo Baron still owns the town, as it turns out that Scuttlebutt spent the money from selling it on cheap, waxy chocolates that he's already eaten. The Ammo Baron fortifies his legally-owned town into a military fortress over the course of Pirate's Curse. During the game's good ending, Shantae uses her restored genie powers to remove all of the military additions and, frightened by her powers, Ammo Baron leaves the town with his army in a hurry. After this, the mayor gives Shantae her Guardian Genie position back and Ammo Town is renamed back to Scuttle Town.

In Half-Genie Hero, Scuttle Town serves as the main hub for Shantae's adventure. She returns to town after completing each level. NPCs will generally offer hints depending on where she is in her quest, or point her in the right direction with quests of their own.


According to Matt Bozon's interview for the Shantae Wiki, Scuttle Town's shoreline is made of two coves: a small one where the town used to be in the past, and a larger one where Scuttle Town sits now. Shantae's Lighthouse is the last remnant from the old town, and from there she has a long view of the town.[1]
