Point Stars are items which debuted in Kirby's Dream Land 2, and have reappeared in several subsequent games. They resemble standard five-pointed Stars which float in the air and (in newer titles) spin about slowly. Collecting a certain number of them (depending on the game) will reward Kirby with a 1-Up.

Overview

The number collected to earn a 1-Up varies depending on the game: seven in Dream Land 2, thirty in Dream Land 3 and Kirby 64, and 100 in the most recent games.

Starting with Return to Dream Land, yellow stars are worth one point, green are worth five, red are worth ten, and blue are worth thirty. In Dededetour!, they look like King Dedede's emblem while in Meta Knightmare Returns they look like Meta Knight's emblem.

In Kirby's Dream Land 2, they are called Small Stars, and in Kirby's Dream Land 3 they are called Star Pieces. Strangely enough, both games re-use the exact same sprite for these objects, despite being vastly different in graphical style otherwise.

Bonus Chance

The object of the Bonus Chances in Kirby's Dream Land 2 is to collect the point stars that appear from the Bosses of that game. Collecting them all will result in a 'perfect' performance, which will award 1-Ups to Kirby.
