Japanese Name メッカラビー, Mekkarabī

First Appearance Densetsu no Starfy 3
Latest Appearance Densetsu no Starfy 3

Mekkarabii are eyeball based enemies which only appear in Densetsu no Starfy 3. They are only found in Sea of Sky (Stages 9-2, 9-6, 9-7 and 9-8). Unlike many enemies, they cannot be defeated by a Star Spin, and attacking Mekkarabii under normal circumstances will only repel Starfy or Starly. Touching Mekkarabii itself will not harm Starfy or Starly. Mekkarabii cannot move and can only keep track of Starfy and Starly using their eyes. It attacks Starfy or Starly by firing a thick red laser, however it takes a relatively long time for Mekkarabii to react, and its laser does not reach very far.

In order for Starfy or Starly to defeat a Mekkarabii, its eyes must follow around the player character clockwise or anti-clockwise. This can easily be achieved by swimming around the Mekkarabii, causing it to become dizzy and disintegrate itself. In the story, Starfy needed to defeat a number of Mekkarabii to open doors.

Trivia

  • This enemy appears to be heavily based on the Mr. I species from the Mario franchise. Similarly to Mekkarabii, the Big Mr. I enemy from Super Mario 64 and the remake Super Mario 64 DS also fire lasers, and can only be defeated when its eyes follow the player character clockwise or anti-clockwise, however the Mr. I species are blue-eyed instead of red-eyed.
