The Kettle (Japanese: やかん) is the first obtainable item (excluding Pearls) Starfy finds in Densetsu no Starfy. In the story Herman asks Starfy to find his missing home. While searching for Herman's home (his conch shell), Starfy finds a kettle. Starfy returns to leave it with Herman. To search deeper for Herman's home, Herman gives Starfy a Key that will fit in the key hole of a barrier blocking the next room of Lobber's Cave.
Later in the story after clearing Lobber's Cave and finding Herman's real home - the Pretty Shell, the Kettle and the Dentalium Shell block the flow of water of a face fountain in Coral Reef. Starfy must break them with his Star Spin to raise the water level and progress through the level.
