|Acts as a collectible item, can stun enemies and feed Hungry Lumas.|
Star Bits are collectible items that first appeared in Super Mario Galaxy and also in Super Mario Galaxy 2. Star Bits come in many colors such as red, green, blue, purple, yellow and white. Star Bits are the Luma's favorite food. If feeding an Hungry Luma with enough Star Bits, they'll transform into a new planet or small galaxy and leaving a Pink Launch Star.
Star Bits can be shot at enemies to stun or defeat them but this will deduct from the player's Star Bit total. They also cannot be recovered if fired. Enemies may also leave Star Bits if defeating them.
