Old Man Geko is an elderly blue frog who seems to be a chemist of sorts. In Densetsu no Starfy 1 and 3, he gives Starfy a drug so he can learn the Ultra Star Spin. In Densetsu no Starfy 3 he lends Starfy his old guitar, the Legendary Guitar, so he, Moe, and Starly can put Gabun to sleep. He makes a cameo appearance in Densetsu no Starfy 4 on Old Tower's City, where he can be touched for 5 Pearls. Although Old Man Geko does not appear in person in Densetsu no Starfy 2, he is referenced in Gekyojii's Picture Book description as being his "distant relative."

In Densetsu no Starfy 3

After Wozart fails to put Gabun to sleep with the Tone of Ocean, Starfy, Starly, and Moe look for the three Legendary Instruments. Starfy goes off to find the Legendary Guitar, running into Gekojii, who was looking for it as well. He says that he was the one who originally buried the guitar, but is much too old to retrieve it now. He decides to let Starfy have the instrument after he finds it and shows it to him, while also giving Starfy the Power-Up Medicine so he can learn the Ultra Star Spin in order to find it easier. Starfy finds the Legendary Guitar before the medicine’s effects wore off and shows Gekojii. He begins to reminisce, giving Starfy the guitar and some sunglasses to make him look cool when playing.

It is revealed in a short talk during post game that Gekojii is thinking about reviving the Legendary Band while the other two members (Gekyojii and Jiilacanth) simply continue to reminisce about the Legendary Band’s hay day.

Name Origin

  • Gekojii's name comes from Geko (ゲコ), onomatopoeia for a croak or ribbit (though not as popular as Kero/ケロ) and Jiisan (爺さん), or "old man".


  • Gekojii, like many old men in the series, uses the pronoun Washi in Japanese.
  • Unlike his distant relative, Gekyojii, Old Man Geko croaks/ribbits in conversation (in Japanese, he simply adds "Geko" to the end of his sentences). This is exclusive to the first game, however.
    • Ex: おおう!よくもどって来たぞゲコ!大せいこうゲコ!(Ohhh! You made it back-croak! It's a great success-croak!)
