Mattel [1] is a cute pink fish from the Amiy Kingdom who first appeared in Densetsu no Starfy 4, where she seeks Starfy's help in saving her homeland from Degil and evil invaders. She is a maid who is one of the four sages, who becomes the princess of the Amiy Kingdom at the end of the game. Starfy has a strong crush on her.


At the end of the first ending, Prince Coral reveals that Mattel is his fiancee, leaving both Starfy and Starly feeling shattered. They turn to stone with their mouths wide open, but this was ostensibly only put in by the developers to create a comedic effect and the effect was not permanent.

The fact that Mattel is already with someone leaves Starfy feeling depressed in his room after the event. Starly seemed to accept it even though this special person is Coral, and Moe failed to make Starfy happy again, however, Starfy accepts it in time and continues his adventure with Starly and Moe to collect all the Answers Cards and truly defeat Degil. After Degil is defeated, Coral and Mattel get married and Mattel thanks everyone, in particular Starfy for his help in saving the Amiy Kingdom.
