Point Stars are common and valuable items in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. They are yellow stars that act as the currency of the game, much like how Coins are the currency in the Mario series, Bananas are the currency in the Donkey Kong Country series and Beads are the currency in Kirby's Epic Yarn. They appear in every level usually in certain areas. They are also awarded when an enemy is defeated. Regular yellow Point Stars are worth one point, large red Point Stars are worth 10 regular Point Stars, and even larger blue Point Stars are worth 30 Point Stars. With every 100 stars collected, a 1-Up is awarded to Kirby.
