Signs about the Star Sphere, Super Mario 64 DS

A Star Sphere is a transparent sphere that can contain a Power Star, appearing in Super Mario 64 DS. If a player obtains five Silver Stars or presses a Star Switch, then a Power Star appears in the crystal sphere. If a Star Switch is pressed, the Star remains in the Star Sphere for a short time. If the player collected all five Silver Stars and then drops one, the Star in the Star Sphere disappears. When the Star Sphere is touched with a Star inside, it breaks and the player gets the Power Star. In VS Mode, most of the Power Stars are found in Star Spheres, except for the ones in The Princess's Secret Slide.
