A Star Candy is a rare item found in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and its remake, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey. It can be used by Mario, Luigi, or Bowser (in the original game). This item restores 999 HP and SP and cures all status ailments, making it the strongest consumable item in the game. Dark Mechawfuls have a chance of dropping Star Candies. It is also rewarded if the Special Attack Mighty Meteor is executed perfectly.
Max Candies in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team and Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam function similarly, but they do not cure status ailments. Cheesy Drumsticks in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey also function similarly, though they can only be used by Bowser.
