A Shooting Star is an item found in the Paper Mario series.
It first appears in Paper Mario, where it is very valuable and somewhat rare. It deals six damage to all opponents in the form of showering them with shooting stars; the only enemy who is immune to this item is Monstar. One can be obtained by talking to a Hammer Bro during the Chapter 6 Intermission at the leftmost point of the library while Princess Peach is disguised using the Sneaky Parasol for her to put in the mysterious treasure chest for Mario to collect later.
This item reappears in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. There, it has a little chance to confuse the enemies. This item can also be cooked by mixing a Thunder Rage with a Point Swap.
When used in Super Paper Mario, players have to aim the remote at the screen and fire at all the stars that appear. The attack grows in strength in proportion to the amount of stars hit.
