A purple Nintendo GameCube

The Nintendo GameCube (Japanese: ニンテンドーゲームキューブ), shortened as the GameCube and officially abbreviated as the GCN (NGC in Japan) is Nintendo's sixth generation home console, released in 2001 in Japan and North America and 2002 in Europe and Australia. It is the successor to the Nintendo 64 and the predecessor to the Wii.

Donkey Konga was released on this console; which features Becky's version of The Legendary Starfy series Title Song in the Japanese version.

A special version of the Nintendo GameCube was released by Panasonic called the Panasonic Q, which has the ability to play DVDs and audio CDs as well as GameCube games. This version of the GameCube was only released in Japan but was discontinued in December 2003.

Though no games in The Legendary Starfy series were released for the GameCube, it is possible to play the Game Boy Advance games via an add-on called the Game Boy Player (Japanese: ゲームボーイプレーヤー).

In Densetsu no Starfy 3

In Densetsu no Starfy 3, by using multiple Game Boy Advance Game Link Cables, minigames can be played with up to four players on the Nintendo GameCube. [1][2]

Additionally, a purple Nintendo GameCube with two controllers appears on the minigames menu, where it is connected to a television. Only two GameCube controllers and a television can be seen, unless the player switches between the minigames.

A silver Nintendo GameCube appears in Densetsu no Starfy 4's Nintendo Headquarters Special in the Stuff, where Starly (if Starfy 'wears' it) or Starfy (if Starly 'wears' it) jumps out of the top of the building holding the GameCube and falls back into the building again.

In the Densetsu no Starfy R manga

Starly lifting up the Gamefyūbe in "Pufftop Kingdom, Game King Playoff"

A console resembling the Nintendo GameCube appeared in chapter seven of the Densetsu no Starfy R manga — "Pufftop Kingdom, Game King Playoff", where it was known as the Gamefyūbe (Japanese: ゲームフューブ). After Starfy said that the "FS" is useful because it can be carried around and played anywhere, Starly picked up the Gamefyūbe and said that the Gamefyūbe is able to be carried around too.
