Starchy is the Candy Kingdom's residential gravedigger. He first appears in "Slumber Party Panic," in which he is frightened by a Candy Zombie and he suddenly explodes while delivering a larger corpse shovel to Princess Bubblegum. Starchy craves flesh, even though he did not become a candy zombie. Starchy makes a cameo in "Ricardio the Heart Guy," as one of the many onlookers to Ricardio giving Lumpy Space Princess a Best Friend Massage. Starchy becomes ill due to the Ice King's Freezer Burn Flu in "What Have You Done?" but recovers, after which he grows large muscles and claims to be "a bit too healthy." He also appears in "Susan Strong," where he is dressed as a Beelzebub (devil) in an attempt to ward off Susan Strong and the other Hyoomens. In "Too Young," Lemongrab sentences Starchy to three hours in the Candy Kingdom dungeon for asking a question. In the episode "From Bad to Worse," he gets carried away by Pineapple Guy as a zombie after dancing and feeling relieved about not being near the Candy Zombies. He also appears in "You Made Me" when Lemongrab is watching him sleep, shortly after Princess Bubblegum came in to make Lemongrab leave.
Starchy resembles a chocolate malt ball and a potato. He has a long, thick brown mustache and wears a blue janitor's hat. Unlike most Adventure Time characters', Starchy's eyes appear to be perfect circles. Starchy is also one of a few characters to have eyebrows.
