The Gold Star is the third Crystal Star in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. It was supposedly found on the Glitz Pit Champ's Belt, but Grubba had the real one and used it to power his Strengthening Machine to turn him into Macho Grubba. The Gold Star was given to Mario by Jolene after defeating Macho Grubba and reuniting her with Prince Mush.

This Crystal Star will teach Mario the move Power Lift, which costs three SP. To use this move, the player must aim a cursor at a 3x3 grid of stars. Hitting orange arrows raises Mario's attack, blue arrows raise Mario's defense, and Poison Mushrooms slow the cursor down for a few seconds.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Gold Star is the only Crystal Star not to be named after a jewel. Gold is a mineral or element.
  • While Grubba had the Gold Star in his possession, he can use it to power up himself, much like Mario uses Power Lift to boost himself up.
  • It is never mentioned how Grubba managed to get this star, as it was never mentioned what the four heroes did with it. It is mentioned by Wonky that he 'found' it, with no details given, as a young fighter, and subsequently used its power to help himself climb the ranks.
  • The Gold Star and the Diamond Star are the only stars that are not from a chapter that involves the X-Nauts or the Shadow Sirens in any way.
