A Shine Sprite is a star like object that appeared in New Super Mario Sunshine. Numbers of them appear at the Shine Gate. It sustains power to Isle Delfino. Without them Isle Delfino would be powerless and shrouded in darkness. You have to collect Shine Sprites in New Super Mario Sunshine. The more you get, the more light and less enemies appear on the island.
- If you get 128 of them in New Super Mario Sunshine there is a surprise at the end of the game.
