* DarkerAndEdgier: Densetsu No Stafy 3 compared to the rest of the series. The environments and enemies are creepier and more intimidating, many of the new character designs lack the cartoony cuteness of the rest of the series, [[VileVillainSaccharineShow it has a intimidating and very evil new villain]], and it has [[spoiler: the death of Moe's father and Ogura, as well as confirming the deaths of the Puchi Oguras from the previous game]].

* ActionCommands: In the last two parts of the fight against [[spoiler: Mashtooth]], you have to [[ButtonMashing mash]] (pun not intended) Y repeatedly in order to win. The second of these two parts requires you to press it in almost impossibly fast succession, which is not only [[NintendoHard freaking hard]] but also ''physically painful''. Your entire right hand is guaranteed to be sore afterward. The result, however, is a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Starfy, as it involves [[spoiler:singlehandedly holding back the goddamn moon, and then ''smashing Mashtooth upside the head with it!'']]

* MeaningfulName: The name Nogo may seem random, but it's the name for an enemy that stays still in one place and can't be defeated with a Star Spin. So any place that Nogo guards will be a "no go" for you.
