A Chance Cube is an item that appears in the Wii game Super Mario Galaxy 2. They are found in numerous levels of each galaxy and on Starship Mario. Chance Cubes are depicted as a cube with images of a 1-Up Mushroom, a Coin, a Star Bit, and an emblem of Bowser's face on each side. When stationary, it floats in place.
If a 1-Up Mushroom is shown, Mario earns a 1-Up Mushroom. If a coin is depicted, Mario wins 10 coins. If a Star Bit is depicted, Mario earns a single Star Bit. However, if the Bowser emblem shows up, a Goomba appears. There is also Lumalee in Starship Mario found in a Warp Pipe next to the ship's "ear" once certain tasks are complete. This allows Mario to feed 30 Star Bits to the Luma to roll a Chance Cube that can give up to five 1-Up Mushrooms at once.
Later on, there is another cube that allows Mario to roll five Chance Cubes for 100 coins for a chance to win up to 25 1-Up Mushrooms. The Chance Cubes on Starship Mario have no sides with a Bowser Emblem or a coin. There is a chance that the player either get a Star Bit, one, three or five 1-Up Mushrooms. The Co-Star Luma can also spin Chance Cubes. Rolling into one as Rock Mario, burning it with a fireball as Fire Mario, hitting it with a Double Kick, or shooting one with a Star Bit also activates it, as does riding Yoshi and doing a spin attack.
