Starkisses are a type of starfish which are fought during Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. They are orange and are capable of standing upright. Starkisses are found in the Oho Ocean Seabed. They attack by blowing a kiss at Mario and Luigi, which takes the form of a small heart. If a Starkiss folds its arms and head inward before performing this attack, it is targeting Luigi; if not, the victim is Mario. The heart travels slowly toward either brother, its path curving along the way. Mario and Luigi must Jump on it to counter the attack. If hit, the brother takes minimal damage, but there is a small chance the kiss will poison the target or affect his attack power, defense, or speed.

In Gwarhar Lagoon, a benevolent purple Starkiss named Spangle requested the Mario Bros. to find him a stage to perform on. The ornately-decorated shell of Hermie III served this purpose, and the latter rewarded them with a Soulful Bros. Badge.
