|First Appearance||Super Mario Galaxy|
|Allows Mario to travel from one place to another nearby.|
| Launch Star|
Pull Stars are items that debuted in Super Mario Galaxy. These little blue star-shaped objects look like little Launch Stars inside of bubbles and can lift Mario off the ground upon touching it with the Star Cursor, pulling him up toward it. Combining the power of these Pull Stars and using them in tandem can help Mario reach astounding heights or areas.
In some areas, Pull Stars are found orbiting other objects in the galaxy, such as Launch Stars or Power Stars. The player must use the right one at the right time to touch the object without accidentally "slingshooting" past it.
