Sneaky, sneaky, cool guy
How I wonder what you are?

The correct answer is an image (it already exists, just link to it in your answer).

Hint #1 - The kind of riddle that this is:

What does it mean to break the fourth wall? You will have to look through Puzzling Stack Exchange to find the answer

Hint #2

Like a _______ in the sky...

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry VirtualValentin, but where do you even expect us to begin with this? This very much seems like, "Guess what I am thinking of..." $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Ok, I'll add a hint to get you guys started on the kind of riddle this is. $\endgroup$ Mar 20 '20 at 9:17

Another answer might be

The profile picture of this ‘star’ user.

This is because

‘Sneaky’ is a synonym for devious, of which Deusovi is an anagram.

Further,

The rhyme is reminiscent of Twinkle, Twinkle — which is a rhyme about stars, and Deusovi is a ‘star’ of this site. More specifically though, Deusovi is a mod, and mods have diamonds next to their names — like a diamond in the sky, as referenced by hint 2.

    $\begingroup$ Heh, I didn't even remember the words of the original rhyme. The only thing I could remember was tea trays. $\endgroup$ Mar 20 '20 at 13:27

Since this is about "fourth wall", the answer should involve

something on Puzzling SE itself.

We don't have much to go on, so let's try

looking for a cool guy.

Found one:

this user.

Now since we're looking for an image,

let's search that user's posts for images.

The only result that comes up is

this post,

which contains this image:

    $\begingroup$ I actually hope this answer is not correct, because it wouldn't be a very good puzzle if so (too many changeable elements, so it wouldn't be durable). But the clues and hints we have do seem to be pointing towards something like this. $\endgroup$ Mar 20 '20 at 12:37
  • $\begingroup$ You're getting there. I was a little hesitant about creating this puzzle because using StackExchange as a medium for a puzzle requires that you look at one point in time with how this site functioned and what posts/users/behaviors are around. Nevertheless, I still found this concept interesting, so I decided to go with elements that aren't as subject to change. I didn't consider things like posts, score, reputation, badges, etc - those are way too brittle. $\endgroup$ Mar 20 '20 at 13:13

    $\begingroup$ @VirtualValentin Usernames are also changeable, and even questions can be deleted. $\endgroup$ Mar 20 '20 at 13:20
  • $\begingroup$ This was the issue I had with my answer, which I believe is on par with yours in terms of shakiness.... $\endgroup$
