Careful, you'll lose an eye.
This page or section needs more images.
There's a whole lotta words here, but not enough pictures. Please fix this.
Hmmm...
To do:
Add the test rooms detailed here

The fourth game in the Legendary Starfy series, and the first one to be released on the Nintendo DS, before the release of The Legendary Starfy. Unlike the other games in the series, Densetsu no Stafy 4 doesn't take place in Pufftop Kingdom. Starfy and others travel away to the Amiy Kingdom to rescue its inhabitants from the evil serpent-like Degil, who has stolen the heart-shaped Mon Amour Stone and wants to exploit its powers to rule over the Amiy Kingdom and marry Prince Coral.

Miscellaneous tidbits that are interesting enough to point out here.
Notes

Development Text

Beginning at offset 0xE1B600 and finishing at offset 0xE22000 is some mysterious development text in the EUC-JP encoding, with a list of offsets within it. See Notes:Densetsu no Stafy 4 for more information.

Conversation Test

Cacti may speak Japanese, but do they speak it well?
...But does it make sense?
The translations on this page need to be proofread. If you are fluent enough in this language, please make any corrections necessary!

From 0x82AD7 is a conversation test by Moe (Kyorosuke), involving one of the public telephones normally appearing in areas before completing the game. It seems to be stored close to Stage 1 text and may also involve Moe's younger siblings:

キョロスケ
こうしゅうでんわテスト

Moe: Public Telephone test

キョロアニメもかえよう

Let's change Moe (Kyoro)-Animation

とりあえずボタンまち

For the time being, (press the) Button to (return to the town)

キョロスケキョロかわった?

Moe Has Kyoro changed?

オトトちゃんでてる?

Younger brother, did you go?
おとと = Younger brother (おとうと), and This probably means a Cute fish (Ototo-chan, Toto, とと = "魚", In Japanese, it is an infant or dialect word meaning Fish.).


キョロスケボタンおしたらしゅうりょう

After pressing Moe's Button, end (the test)

チョロスケ
テストバージョン2

Chorosuke: Test Version 2

チョロスケ
フラグがせいぎょされてれば

Chorosuke: If the flag is set..

このセリフがでトるはずだけど

This line should appear.

キョロスケこうしゅうデンワの使いかたは
分かったみてーだなそうやって使うんだ

Using Moe's Public Telephone: Did you get it? That's how you use it.

キョロスケオレさまも 

ヒマじゃねーんだからなんべんも かけてくんじゃねーぞ

As for me, the great Moe.. I don't have time (for these tests) so I won't bother.

Super Princess Peach Leftovers

Leftovers from Super Princess Peach exist in the game. Other than the unused models (detailed under a separate heading), the Koopalings and square/triangle blocks similar to blocks in Super Mario World are documented, however, there is likely to be more.

Stage 6 Cutscene Texture Text

In the texture file "ddemo s06_l" for Stage 6 (Flourishing Desert) which contains certain Arcy graphics, there is some hand-drawn placeholder text "ぼよ", meaning "pot". Arcy is the boss for this Stage, who attacks using pots.

Unused Music

Present in the ROM are three songs which are never used in-game. They all share an ominous theme.

There are also nine duplicates of the Stage 1, Lobber's Villa music. The three unused songs and the duplicates do not appear in the sound test: the internal list has only 58 entries, one of which is for the not unlocked yet songs ("☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆"), and another one is unused and called "なしきょく58"("No Track 58"). They are only accessible through hacking.

Unused Models

Hmmm...
To do:
More! http://starfywiki.org/wiki/Densetsu_no_Starfy_4/Unused_Content/Unused_Models

Various unused 3D models are stored in the game's G3D directory. Many of these are shared with the Japanese version of Super Princess Peach but a few, including some Galaga graphics and files relating to a yellow ninja, are in Densetsu no Stafy 4 but not Super Princess Peach (unlike files for green, purple, and black ninjas).

Note that 3D models are used in Densetsu no Stafy 4, but only for a few elements of the gameplay including the Opening, Stage backgrounds, and the background for the dance screen for when a boss is defeated.
