Blantern is a boss in Densetsu no Starfy, who appears in Deep Sea. He/She appears to be a glowfish, and has minions known as the Buranko. In the game, Blantern and the Buranko stole the Tone of Ocean from Wotsaruto, and hid it in a large side-scrolling room with arrow buttons which change the direction that the screen is scrolling when Starfy uses a Star Spin on them.

In the boss battle with Blantern, he/she will spawn Buranko on to the screen to attack Starfy. Blantern will blend into the background if the room is too dark, and remains invincible unless enough Buranko are spawned to light up the area. When enough Buranko are on the screen, the room will be bright enough for Starfy to attack Blantern with a Star Spin, but if the Buranko move off the screen or are defeated by Starfy, the player will have to wait until enough Buranko appear on the screen.



  • Blantern, like many old men in the series, uses the pronoun Washi in Japanese.
    • However, unlike the many old characters that use it, he does not have the honorific Jii (じい) or Jiisan じいさん) in his name.
    • Blantern shares these similarities with Boctopus and Ogura, who are the only other bosses in the game to use Washi.
