A Star Skill is a special hit or pitch that can be used by any player and is unique among the captains in Mario Superstar Baseball and Mario Super Sluggers. Star Skills require a limited meter that can be used only a certain number of times; the meter drops whenever the player uses a Star Skill. The meter can be replenished when the players either hit the field features (such as hitting a yellow Piranha Plant with the ball in Yoshi Park) or when they get a hit or strike a player out when the words, "STAR CHANCE!" appear. Players start with a more filled meter if there are many subcharacters that have good Chemistry with the Team Captain. Team Captains and subcharacters use one Star Skill while Team Subcaptains use two.
Star Swings, which use the Star Skill, have one of the several possibilities that happen when a subcharacter uses them:
Star Pitches also use Star Skills and also have their set of possibilities:
List of Star Skills
All team captains have their own unique Star Skills in both games, with some characters keeping their Star Skills through both games while other characters gain new Star Skills from Mario Superstar Baseball to Mario Super Sluggers.

In Mario Superstar Baseball, the pairs of captains tend to have generally the same Star Skill, with only minor differences in color and other attributes. In Mario Super Sluggers, the captains all have unique Star Skills of their own, with some captains gaining completely new Star Skills, some captains having their Star Skills work differently, and some captains carrying over the same Star Skill they had in Mario Superstar Baseball.
