Star Chips are pieces of a star that appear in Super Mario Galaxy. There are always in a set of five. Mario must find and collect the pieces. The pieces resemble the points of a star. Star Chips are yellow or blue in color. They are surrounded by a yellow circle. They do also, glow with a light making them easy to notice. When you collect all 5 yellow star chips a Launch Star appears. When you collect all 5 blue Star Chips are Pull Star appears. Sometimes, when you collect a set of Star Chips, some Pull Stars appear with a Launch Star. Star Chips reappear in Super Mario Galaxy 2 behaving the same way they did in the prequel.
