The Legend of Starfy[1] (Densetsu no Starfy) is the first game in The Legendary Starfy series. It was originally intended to be released for the Game Boy Color but development on the game had moved to the Game Boy Advance, however no prototype unearthed from the 2018-2020 Nintendo, Microsoft data breaches.


The normally peaceful kingdom of Pufftop was in trouble after Starfy accidentally dropped a Jar into the ocean while carrying valuable treasure. The being inside the Jar then used his powers to create a terrible storm which sent Starfy falling into the ocean. Starfy is then awoken by Old Man Lobber in his cave who advises that Starfy should rest a while in his cave from the storm.

Starfy's quest is to return back to Pufftop and find out the identity of the being inside the Jar and confront him. On his quest back to Pufftop, he must help others characters and fight bosses. In Coral Reef, Starfy becomes good friends with Moe the clam who joins him on his adventure.


The game scored 30 out of 40 points in Famitsu and sold 291,616 copies at the end of 2002.[2][3][4]

Fan translation project by Starfy Translation Team

The game has received a series of three completed fan translation ROM hacks by Starfy Translation Team, which were released on September 23, 2023. These are variations of the base fan translation;

  • "The Legendary Starfy", the main release, which uses official and fan-made localised names for characters.
  • "Starfy Origins" which is based on the main release but calls the game "The Legendary Starfy Origins" (similar to how the first MOTHER game is officially called EarthBound Beginnings as a "what-if" situation).
  • "Densetsu no Stafy ENG" which preserves original Japanese names for characters and settings.
