Super Star

The term Super Star is used to describe the winner of a game in the Mario Party Series. It is also a power-up item in a couple of games as well.


[edit] Yoshi Series

[edit] Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Island DS

In both Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Island DS there is a power-up item called "Super Star". This item turns Yoshi into a giant Yoshi Egg while it turns Baby Mario into Superstar Mario, a form that closely resembles Cape Mario from Super Mario World.

[edit] Mario Party Series

The term, "Super Star", is the very thing that the Mario Party Series is built on. In every game of the franchise, players compete on various board maps to get the most Stars and Coins in order to be named the "Super Star". In the original Mario Party, the title screen would reflect which character is the most recent Super Star. In Mario Party 2, each game's Super Star would go on to confront Bowser to rid him from the board that was played on.

[edit] Definition and Method

Toad defined the term that would go on to become the holy grail so to speak of the Mario Party Series. It all started in the original Mario Party when Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Peach, Wario, and Donkey Kong were all arguing with each other as to who was the "biggest star" of them all. After the arguing got the six friends nowhere, Toad intervened to define the term for them. In Toad's words, a Super Star must have four important qualities; strength, courage, wisdom, and kindness. Toad then suggested the gang use the Warp Pipe in Mushroom Village and head out for adventure to determine which of them has those qualities and challenge each other in acts of goodwill. Whoever would emerge from the adventures victorious would be named the Super Star.
