* ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy Galaxy]]'', and every ''VideoGame/MarioParty'': Power Stars. The goal is to collect these.
** ''SuperMarioSunshine'': Shine Sprites. These are Sun-Shaped Coupons; close enough, because the sun is a star.

* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'':
** Platform games:

''VideoGame/SuperMario64'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy Galaxy]]'', Galaxy 1]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2 2]]'', and every ''VideoGame/MarioParty'': ''VideoGame/MarioParty'' up until and including ''8'': Power Stars. The goal is to collect these.
** ''SuperMarioSunshine'': *** ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'': Shine Sprites. These are Sun-Shaped Coupons; close enough, because the sun is a star.
*** ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'': Green Stars. They differ from Power Stars because, in regular levels, Mario and his friends have to continue progressing in the levels as they collect them until reaching the flagpole, instead of calling it a day when they collect a
star.



* Almost every ''Mario'' RPG.
** ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG: Legend of the Seven Stars'' has you locating the [[DismantledMacGuffin seven pieces]] of the broken Star Road. Both the individual pieces and the reassembled Star Road are star-shaped.
** ''VideoGame/{{Paper Mario|64}}'' makes you rescue the seven Star Spirits.
** ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' has you locating seven Crystal Stars.
** ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'' is an aversion; it has heart-shaped coupons.
** ''VideoGame/PaperMarioStickerStar'' [[ZigZaggedTrope both averts this ''and'' plays it straight]]. The main coupons required to move on with the story are the six [[CoolCrown crown-shaped]] Royal Stickers, which fell from a star-shaped Sticker Comet. Apart from that, each LevelGoal is a star-shaped Comet Piece.
** ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga]]'' has you collect the four pieces of the Beanstar after it shatters. The pieces combine into a star shape.
** ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time]]'' has you collecting the six pieces of the shattered Cobalt Star. Again, the pieces combine into a star shape.
** ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story]]'' has the three Star Cures.
** Surprisingly for the series, ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiDreamTeam'' manages to avert this, breaking the StarShapedCoupon streak the other games had going.

* ''InTheGroove'' has stars representing the very highest grades, which wouldn't count except it also keeps count of how many stars you have, and getting them again on the same chart doesn't increase the number.
