“You've let the hat out of the bag, my friend! But it's about time! Your real prize is the Star Rod!”
MC Ballyhoo, Mario Party 8

The Star Rod is a magic wand that appears as the reward for becoming the Superstar of the Star Carnival in Mario Party 8. After the player completes the game's Star Battle mode, MC Ballyhoo awards the player not only a year's supply of Candy but also the Star Rod itself, which he had been carrying in Big Top all this time. However, Bowser swoops down and steals the rod, claiming he is the real Superstar. The player then chases Bowser to his board, Bowser's Warped Orbit, where the rod is recovered after the player beats one of Bowser's minions, and used to create energy balls that attack Bowser in Superstar Showdown.
