|A constellation based on magical plumbing that causes those who enter it to be transported to fantastic places.

|A constellation based on a gigantic squid. Mario has fought this squid countless times, sometimes winning, sometimes losing. That's just life.
|A constellation based on the curious crustacean that has long defied classification. Hermit crab? Crayfish? Shrimp? He's not telling.

|A constellation based on a creature so shy he wears a mask to hide his face. What's behind the mask? Your guess is as good as mine.
|Bad Ball Boy
|A constellation that calls to mind a fiendish turtle who spits spiked balls at his foes. Nobody ever told him how rude that is, so it's hard to blame him.
|A constellation based on the lord of the Koopa Troops himself. Though selfish and prone to fits of rage, he takes good care of his underlings.
|A constellation based on the spoiled son of a dark lord. He may be a bit of a brat, but he tries hard to impress his dad, and that's never easy.

|A constellation named after the legendary lord of the jungle. He often wears neckties as a sign of his professional dedication to bananas.

|A constellation that calls to mind a mysterious barrel. Some say barrels shoot people into the sky. Others say barrels store things. Could be both.
|A constellation evocative of that tasty treat beloved by animals everywhere: bananas. In the jungle, they're quite valuable.
