The Star is an Item that makes you rainbow-colored, lets you go faster, flips opponents and lets you go off road at the same speed. The racer using the Star cannot be affected by anything, so they're invincible! The Star is very useful and effective for avoiding many of other items that are harmful to your player, though you may only use the Star for a limited time. You only get the Star when you're in last or close to last of all the racers.
The Star has appeared in all of the Mario Kart games.
- Stars can even knock out people with the mega mushroom!
