The Star Spirits are a group of seven powerful stars that first appear in Paper Mario. Consisting of Eldstar, Mamar, Skolar, Muskular, Misstar, Klevar and Kalmar, the Star Spirits are being held captive by Bowser's followers after he and Kammy Koopa stole their precious Star Rod and turned them into playing cards, in retaliation for their ignoring Bowser's selfish wishes.

After Mario and his new friends rescue all of them, they give him a special power called Star Beam, which is used to neutralize the effects of the Star Rod, and a ship that they can use to travel to Bowser's Castle. During the final battle with Bowser, due to the effects of Bowser's Power Platform, their Star Beam does not work against him, triggering a side battle with Princess Peach and Twink against Kammy Koopa. After Peach and Twink have defeated Kammy, the Star Beam is upgraded to Peach Beam, giving Mario a second chance at a victory against Bowser and to recover the Star Rod.

The Star Spirits reappear in Mario Party 5, where they are known as Star Guards, and guard the Dream Depot and all of its dreams. They guide the players throughout the game as well. They return as a collectible for Mario Party 5 in Mario Party: The Top 100, where they are once again known as the Star Spirits. Like their artwork in Paper Mario, the Star Spirits lack mouths. Eldstar also appears as a Sticker in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
