First Appearance Densetsu no Starfy 4
Latest Appearance Densetsu no Starfy 4

Harisen-san are undefeatable enemies that have exclusively appeared in Densetsu no Starfy 4. They normally appear in groups, except in one conversation with Anju prior to clearing Stage 3-4 in which she introduces it to Starfy, Starly and Moe. She informs them that Akureima is able to disguise as a Harisen-san.

In Stage 3-4 (Cupid Village), prior to the completion of the game, there are three rooms with a cannon and a crown-wearing cloud. Each room holds a number of Harisen-san. When Starfy uses a Star Spin to fire a cannonball into a cloud, an angry Kumo Ojisan with a bump on its head appears out of the cloud; startling all Harisen-san in the room.

When real Harisen-san are startled, they reveal hidden spikes which can harm the player. If a 'Harisen-san' reveals tentacles instead of spikes, it is actually Akureima under the disguise of a Harisen-san. The disguise can be destroyed with a single Star Spin. Akureima disguises as a Harisen-san a total of three times.


Name origin

  • Harisen-san is likely derived from 針千本, "harisenbon", literally "one thousand needles", used to refer to a porcupinefish. The "-san" at the end of its name is a Japanese honorific used to refer to other people politely, regardless of their sex.
