Trivia

  • The English versions of The Legendary Starfy and Kirby Returns to Dreamland are believed to use the same font as a basis.
  • When Hitoshi Yamagami was asked by Nintendo Power how "Starfy and Kirby would get along if they met one another?", Hitoshi replied "since Starfy and Kirby are both very friendly" "don't you think they would become friends right away?". He notes that Kirby is "very active in the sky", in the same way Starfy is "very active in the sea". [1]
  • The Kirby series features another star-shaped character whose appearance has similarities to Starfy, but is not related to him, known as Mr. Star.
