Starborn Valley is the place where Star Kids, like Twink, are born in Paper Mario. Merlon's son, Merle lives here and, with help from a group of Ninji, raise the Star Kids before they leave for Star Haven. While Mario and his partners visit this place, they learn from Merle that the last of the Star Spirits is being held in the Crystal Palace. To get to Starborn Valley, Mario needs to trek across Shiver Snowfield. Frost T. as well as other Toads also lives here.
Before Mario reaches Starborn Valley, Monstar appears and fights him, but turns out to be the Star Kids in disguise, who were trying to protect the valley and did not realize who Mario was. Merle later apologies for the trouble they caused.
