Adventure Story Wiki

Steal a single random item from an enemy. This attack is normally used by Burglars.


Shoplift is a skill obtained by collecting upgraded Cards.png Burglar Cards. Tough Shoplift is received from obtaining an Cards.pngElite Burglar Card. Stunning Shoplift is received from obtaining a Cards.pngSuper Burglar Card.
Just like all Cards.pngCard skills, there are no alternative colors.

Stunning Shoplift performs exactly like Tough Shoplift for 1 more SP.pngSP, so it is advised that you avoid upgrading it.

The timing for the Action Command is about the moment after the player's arms are raised and has stopped moving.
Performing the Action Command for this skill doesn't affect the skill as of now.

In simple terms, shoplift will work on any enemy with less DEF.pngDefense than your current POW.pngPower.


  • Shoplift can not steal items from monster type enemies.
    • This is due to the fact that they cannot carry items. Only Humanoid and Giant type enemies hold items.
  • Shoplift will also fail to steal an item if the enemy has at least DEF.png1 Defense. However, if you have a power Magical Stone, it will allow enemies with DEF.png1 Defense to be stolen from.
  • Shoplift will fail to steal if when the enemy targeted has no items.
  • Anything that can give you the PowerUp.pngPower Up status, such as Fury or Hot Sauce, can be used to use Shoplift on enemies with higher DEF.pngDefense.


  • This skill is the only skill that players can steal items.
  • This skill is also required to obtain Spectral Soda, by using it on a Dweller.
  • This skill is the only skill that sees no changes when upgrading, aside from increased SP.pngSP cost. This makes Stunning Shoplift the only skill that is purely a downgrade from its tough counterpart.
  • Hilariously, using a PowerUp.pngPower Up status allows you to use Shoplift on The Bandit King.
  • This skill does no damage.
