Okubyounomon is a gate in Densetsu no Starfy 4 that appears exclusively in Degil's Castle. Its appearance frightens Starfy and Starly so much that they can't keep a straight face and Moe also appears nervous. It is a cursed form of Yuukinomon.

Okubyounomon asks Starfy and Starly to locate and destroy the 25 Frightened Hearts in Stage 9-1 as part of the 'Test of Courage' (Japanese: ゆうきのしれん). Destroying them will defeat Shinigami and remove the curse on Okubyounomon, turning it back into Yuukinomon.

Though Okubyounomon represents a thoughtless monster, it may be a deceptive analogy. Okubyounomon is actually very tough but may have been lonely, with an optimistic past (shadow symbolism similar to Link and Majora). The test of courage helps Okubyounomon to cope; restoring his happiness from his spirit that may seem dead and empty (similar to a popular fairy tale and franchise Beauty and The Beast).


Name origin

  • Probably from おくびょう (okubyou) - cowardice and (mon) - gate. Both are linked with the particle の.
