The star menu is the menu in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and its 3DS remake, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey, replacing Stuffwell from Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time and the suitcase from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. It consists of six options: Items, Gear, Info, Badges, Specials, and Map. The options are outlined in stars, hence the name star menu. The player can also view play time and, when it becomes available, the Badge Meter. The star menu is accessed by pressing the Start button. Starlow explains how to use it, and runs it afterward.
It returns in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team with the same function, but now is simply called the "menu".
