Don't be surprised if your Star Powered-character refers frequently to constellations, perhaps referring to the influence of the WesternZodiac and other planetary bodies. As an offense, the stars may be helpful to LightEmUp. Causing meteors to fall from the sky to strike your opponents is not out of the question for either type. On the opposite side of the scale, this may extend itself to power that comes from galaxies or even the entire frakken ''universe''.

* Nanoha Takamachi from ''Franchise/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' has two themes: Stars and a FeatherMotif. To perform her ''[[WaveMotionGun Starlight Breaker]]'', she [[EnergyAbsorption gathers the residual energy left by magical attacks in a battlefield]] in form of thousands of starlights. Other characters who know ''Breaker'' magic are Reinforce Eins, who copied it from Nanoha, [[spoiler:Teana Lanster, who learned it from Nanoha]], and Miura Rinaldi, who also has a star themed Intelligent Device with the name Star Saber. In Miura's case, her attacks are mostly close-ranged based and her two most powerful attacks have the names ''Bakken: Seiōha'' ("Sword-draw: Starbright Blade") and ''Bakken: Tenshō Seiōha'' ("Sword-draw: Heaven-piercing Starbright Blade").
* As shown in the image, Cure Twinkle from Anime/GoPrincessPrettyCure uses stars as her primary powers. She also uses [[{{Lunacy}} Moon-based]] shields

* VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends has 2 champions with different variants of this trope (3 if you count Leona, who uses ThePowerOfTheSun). [[WhiteMagicianGirl Soraka, The Starchild]] is a celestial being that possesses heavenly powers, including an offensive ability called Starcall.
** [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Aurelion Sol, The Star Forger]] prefers to create stars for combat, sometimes in tandem with creating a miniature galaxy and [[BreathWeapon breathing white starfire.]] And keep in mind, his stars in this case are pretty much miniature suns.
---> '''Aurelion Sol''': I'm going to throw a star at you now. Good luck.
