Choking is a boss in Densetsu no Starfy 4. During the story, he was responsible for Amiiyoshino's sickness.

He is a large crab with a coin purse on his back which conceals a large piggy bank in which he stores many pearls. Starfy must hit Choking's purse-like back using a Star Spin after he releases his claws to reveal the large piggy bank. Starfy must then attack the piggy bank a total of 12 times in order to defeat him.


During the battle, simply touching Choking will cause Starfy to lose six health points. Choking may jump into the air towards Starfy until falling to the ground again, this may either be a small jump or a rather large one. Choking may also release his claws into the air, momentarily revealing the coin purse on his back until they fall back on to Choking again. Getting hit by Choking's claws will cause Starfy to lose 7 health points. When Choking's claws are flying through the air, Starfy can use a Star Spin on the coin purse to reveal the large piggy bank. Starfy can then attack the piggy bank with his Star Spin up to three times, which makes Choking to lose 1 health point health point for every hit, until Choking hides the piggy bank inside of the coin purse and draws up his claws. When Choking has lower health points, it may only be possible to attack Choking up to two times until he hides the piggy bank again.

Choking, also has one attack that he will only start using after Starfy has weakened him. It involves Choking releasing a large cloud of toxic gas from his mouth which will expand in size and eventually disappear. Additionally, after releasing the toxic gas, he will also strangely release multiple pairs of claws at once even though he only appears to have two. Starfy is unable to damage Choking when the toxic gas is present even if he exposes his coin purse. Starfy will lose 8 health points if he is caught up in the cloud. Starfy can avoid it by swimming to the top of the room, as the cloud at its highest is only about twice as tall as Choking.
