Hirara (Japanese: ヒララ) is a pink fish that only appeared in Densetsu no Starfy 3. Her fins become spiky when she gets angry.

In Densetsu no Starfy 3

During the story, Hirara was inside Gabun and was giving him a tummy ache. Moe asks what's wrong, which is when her spiked fins return to normal as she begins to cry. Moe apologizes (due to her being a cute girl) and once again asks what's wrong. Hirara spikes up again, exclaiming that her heart was broken by Hirao, whom she liked but got married to Hirarin. Moe says that it's a good thing she didn't get married to a stupid guy like Hirao, and that a good guy like him is right here. Hirara then attacks Moe, telling him to not say stupid things. She then reveals that she was spending her time inside Gabun to get over her heartbreak, claiming "no one could hurt her here". Starly tells her that while she's avoiding people hurting her, she is hurting Gabun in the process, but Hirara doesn't care (and hurts Moe while saying so). Starly then uses an ace up her sleeve, telling Starfy to tickle Gabun, causing him to spit all four of them out. Once outside of Gabun, he says that his stomachache is finally gone and gives Starfy the Hinocchio as thanks. Hirara takes offense to Gabun saying that she was rampaging around in his belly, but then notices how big Gabun is, believing that his size equates to caliber (see definition 2 of Utsuwa/うつわ here). She decides for herself that Gabun is the person she's destined to be with, even though Gabun thinks she's being a bit too forward.

After completing the main scenario of 7-2, if Starfy talks to Hirara, she tells Gabun to take her on a date to go shopping, but Gabun says he can't, as he cannot move. In post game, she says nothing, simply swooning over Gabun who is uncomfortable in this situation.

In the manga (Yumiko Sudō)

Hirara appears in the sixth chapter of volume 2, "I Want to Appear in the Movies Too Fii!". She hosts auditions for the Haunted House in front of the Cinema (though Starfy and Moe think it's for a movie until the end). Many actors show up, but Hirara scares most of them away. She tells the remaining actors that they need someone brave. The remaining actors had to compete in a fighting competition and a speech test.

Name Origin

  • Hirara's name most likely comes from Hirao (ヒラオ) and Hirarin's (ヒラリン) names, as well as Iraira (いらいら, To get irritated or annoyed), referencing her short temper.
