The Star Spirits consist of Eldstar, Mamar, Skolar, Muskular, Misstar, Klevar and Kalmar. They all appear in Paper Mario and are being held captive by Bowser's followers after Bowser and Kammy Koopa stole their precious Star Rod and turned them into playing cards, because of their ignoring Bowser's selfish wishes.

After Mario rescues 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, unless Star Beam is upgraded to Peach Beam when Twink helps Mario out in the battle.

Later, in Mario Party 5, where they are known as Star Guards, it is revealed that they also guard the Dream Depot and all its dreams. They guide the players throughout the game as well. They cameo as a collectible for Mario Party 5 in Mario Party: The Top 100, where they are once again known as the Star Spirits.
