Ootaruika (literally meaning Big Barrel Squid) is the father of the Taruika. Just like his children he wears a barrel and sometimes goes inside it. He gave Chuta a Barrel in Densetsu no Starfy 2 after losing his pot.
In the manga (Yumiko Sudō)
Ootaruika appears in the fourth chapter of volume two, Courage Wars Fii!. Starfy and Moe had entered a dangerous cave disregarding a warning sign. They ended up getting themselves in danger, but were rescued by Ootaruika. Ootaruika becomes angry with Starfy and Moe for ignoring the warning sign. They tell him they're fine, but he calls them idiots and throws them out of the cave. Later Ootaruika saves Starfy from spiked fish after Starfy attempted to save Moe, who had slipped into the water, but ended up putting himself in danger. Starfy and Moe tell Ootaruika that he was courageous, but Ootaruika is still mad at them and tosses them out of the cave again. Ootaruika is later seen going inside his house. Starfy and Moe secretly follow him, but they leave shortly once they see him crying by a picture of his son. Starfy leaves his seashell he caught while fishing behind. Ootaruika finds it and puts it near his son's picture.
