Kyorozou is Moe's father. He has only officially appeared in person in Densetsu no Starfy 3, but he appears in Densetsu no Starfy 2's Staff Roll 2 and in two photographs in Densetsu no Starfy 4 in Moe's House. He and Moe's mother separated when Moe was younger, so Moe and his siblings have not seen him much. He appears to have an interest in golf. Though Kyorozou and his son do not always get along, they do still have feelings for each other. On various occasions, beginning in the Jungle, Moe reunites with Kyorozou.

In Densetsu no Starfy 3

Though Kyorozou makes his first appearance in the fourth stage of the Jungle, he is first mentioned in stage 1 of the same world when Manta-han mentions that Moe owes him the pearls that his father borrowed from him. Starfy, Starly, and Moe then spend the next two levels finding the Treasure Cave so they can pay back what Moe owes Manta-han until 5-4. Starly sees a green clam, Kyorozou, and mistakes him for Moe. After cornering Echigyoya, Kyorozou can be seen stealing some of the treasure they all came here for. Furious that he would dare steal his treasure, Manta-han tells Moe and the others to go teach Kyorozou a lesson. This is before being stopped by Enbiraru, who beats Kyorozou up for stealing his treasure.

Kyorozou would make his next appearance in the fourth stage of the Undersea Ruins, where he steals the jewels from the trio and Wario, leaving them unable to open the door in the middle of the room. After giving chase and getting the jewels back, Moe gets ready to beat up his father when Kyorozou begs for forgiveness and tells them about the "Old Castle Search Party", a group of Pufftop Guards looking for the entrance to the Old Castle in the Sea of Sky. He then takes his leave, and the trio son join him after dealing with Gachatakkoru.

When the trio catch up to Kyorozou, they find him speaking to a Pufftop Guard, asking to join the search party. Moe commends his father for helping them so soon, but gets worried after hearing about the entrance exam for the Old Castle Search Party. Kyorozou, to Moe's disappointment, never passes the entrance exam. However, this is due to Kyorozou actually finding the Old Castle during it. He then encounters Evil, who promises him large amounts of treasure. In exchange, Kyorozou would tell him the whereabouts of the Pufftop Soldiers searching for the Old Castle. Kyorozou agrees to this, and Evil sends his henchmen to attack the Pufftop Guards, wiping them all out. He would then work under Evil, assisting him by hiding the entrance to the Old Castle via a machine that fills the area with clouds, making it hard to see. After Starly finds the switch to turn said machine off, Kyorozou retreats to the Old Castle while the trio fight Muga.

The trio would meet Kyorozou for the last time in stage 3 of the Old Castle, where he lays a trap for his son. After Moe tries to attack his father, he reveals that he was never really there, and a group of Trappas kidnap Moe. After waking up, Moe asks his father what he's planning, to which he answers that his son will be helping "Lord Evil". Moe, refusing to do so, is then trapped in a cage of lightning by Evil. Evil tells Moe that if Starfy and Starly touch the electrified ring surrounding them, it'd be the end for them, but that Moe would be spared if he lies to them, saying that they should touch it. Evil then gives Moe a microphone to tell the two to touch the ring, but Moe does the opposite, saving their lives. After this, Evil prepares to kill Moe, but Kyorozou pushes Moe out of the way to protect him, taking the brunt of Evil's lightning attack. Kyorozou and Moe have a heartfelt talk, and he gives Starfy the Stuff Item: the Beloved Dog. Moe says he doesn't have to give them anything, just that he has to apologize to his siblings and live with them again. Kyorozou agrees, but says that he has to apologize to Moe's mother first, and takes his final breath.

In Densetsu no Starfy 4

A photo of Kyorozou by himself as well as one with his wife together can be seen in Moe's House, and interacting with certain objects causes Moe to talk about his late father. Some are simply Moe wondering if he'll look like his father when he gets older, while others make him reminisce on his time with him when he was younger.


  • Kyorozou, 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.
  • Both Moe and Kyorozou share many similarities. Notably their use of the slang word 'ome' (Japanese: オメェ) to refer to others, their ego, and their love (which could easily be seen as greed) for treasure.
  • Moe calls Kyorozou オヤジ (Oyaji), which is the equivalent of calling your dad your "old man". This is in contrast to Moe calling his mother かあちゃん (Kaachan), which is much more "loving" phrase (though Moe does in fact love them both).
  • After Moe's mother left Kyorozou and took their kids, Kyorozou got a dog whom he lived with until his death. This dog is the Stuff Item, the Beloved Dog.
  • According to Kyorozou's Picture Book description from Densetsu no Starfy 3, Moe wonders whether he ever apologized to his mother.
  • In Densetsu no Starfy 4, when inspecting the picture of Moe's mother and father (simply called "Photo" in game) in Moe's House, Moe mentions that Kyorozou and his mother met while taking a walk in/near Lobber's Cave.
  • When inspecting Moe's table in Starfy 4, he mentions that his father used to make curry for him when he was younger.
  • In Starfy 2's second Staff Roll, Kyorozou seems to be the same color as Moe and his mother, meaning that he may have turned green when he got older.
