“Hey, do you think I can rise into the sky soon?”
Star Kid, Paper Mario

Star Kids are young stars that appear in Paper Mario. They are born in Starborn Valley, where they are raised by a group of Ninji. Once they eventually mature, they ascend towards Star Haven to join the other Star Kids and the Star Spirits. From there, they grant the wishes of the people on the world below and have the possibility to become a Star Spirit.[1] However, the Star Kids are unable to rise into the sky due to Bowser stealing the Star Rod from Star Haven. In Chapter 7, they try to prevent Mario from entering their village by creating a creature called Monstar. After Monstar is defeated and fades away, the Star Kids posing at it flee, letting Mario enter the village. It is explained by Merle that the Star Kids use that form to keep Bowser's followers out of the valley and that no one expected Mario's quick arrival. As noted by the Ninjis, they are full of energy and, after Mario has rescued Kalmar, express excitement to rise up to Star Haven. A notable Star Kid is Twink, who helps Mario throughout his journey and acts as Princess Peach's partner.

Individual Tattles[edit]

  • "He's a Star Kid who isn't allowed to go up to the sky. It doesn't seem to have affected his spirits, though. It's no use worrying about these little guys now, Mario. We'll help 'em soon!"
  • "It's one of the Star Kids. Hey, maybe if we make friends with the Star Kids now, they'll grant us tons of wishes later!"
  • "It's a Star Kid--just a baby. Star Kids are so full of life, aren't they? I always wanted a younger brother, you know. It would be fun to get into hijinks with a little bro."
  • "It's a Star Kid. She's so cute! She reminds me of Goombaria."
  • "It's a Star Kid. He wants a younger brother. Hey, so do I! I hope he becomes a great star one day."
  • "This Star Kid thinks he's made himself invisible. He wants to go up to the sky. OK, but, it's hard to imagine this little prankster granting anyone's wishes..."
