Magic Spells and Creations

    The Laser Puppies 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s1e1_closer_inspection_of_puppies.png

Several puppies capable of shooting lasers from their eyes. They were magically created by Star in the first episode and reappear periodically.


  • As Lethal as It Needs to Be: Their Eye Beams can start fires and blast holes through clothing, but never do more than annoy any humans they shoot. At worst, it stings a bit to get shot in the eye.
  • De-Power: It's been suggested by one of the staff members of the show that magic's destruction simply caused them to lose their ability to fire lasers from their eyes.
  • Eye Beams: Their most prominent trait. It's best not to make eye contact with them.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: The puppies can shoot laser pulses from their eyes uncontrollably.
  • Killed Off for Real: One of them was sucked into a portal (off-screen) minutes after creation, and hasn't been seen since.
  • Killer Rabbit: Are a litter of cute puppies… that, while nice, innocently and uncontrollably fire lasers out of their eyes.
  • No Name Given: Except for one, who Star called Sajak in "My New Wand!" A second one gets named in a promo video as "Barko Diaz", and a third as "Marco Jr."
  • Non-Humans Lack Attributes: They have hearts on their bottoms, and nothing else.
  • Power Incontinence: They have no control over their Eye Beams, which fire off as Rule of Funny demands.
  • Precious Puppies: The reason Star made them. Notably, despite the series taking place over several months, they don't appear to age at all.
  • Spirit Advisor: In "Marco Grows a Beard", Star has a conversation with one of the puppies while dreaming which tells her that she doesn't always need magic to defeat her enemies as she has been able to hold her own against the monsters without the need of magic.
  • Uncertain Doom: It's unclear whether or not they were magical enough that the destruction of the Realm of Magic killed them or not. This post suggests that they're alive, just not capable of firing lasers anymore.
  • Voodoo Shark: Word of God claims the Laser Puppies survived the destruction of magic (albeit no longer able to shoot lasers). This, despite them being created by Star's wand and seemingly no different from any other spell or magical entity.

    Spider With a Top Hat 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/spider_with_a_top_hat_profile.png
"How about some cold ones for my number ones?"
Voiced by: Steve Little

A spider with a top hat who works for comic relief and entertainment, but is actually Star's strongest combat spell.


  • Ascended Extra: His appearances in the first season consisted of the intro, the outro and a cameo that barely lasted a second. He then proceeds to star in a few episodes, taking place inside Star's wand.
  • Badass Adorable: He is a cute little spider who packs a lot of punch.
  • Bottomless Magazines: Averted in "Divide". His weapon runs out of ammunition after a few moments of sustained fire.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Spider With a Top Hat seems to just be Star's dorky little comic relief spell. In actuality, he is her most powerful spell.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Stars in his own episode named after him, and is also the protagonist of "Holiday Spellcial".
  • Friendly Neighborhood Spider: He might be a spider, but he's also very sweet and popular among Star's other spells.
  • The Heart: As one Warnicorn points out in "Holiday Spellcial", Spider is the glue that ties the other spells together, allowing them to tolerate each other.
  • Gatling Good: His combat move, done with lasers even.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: Spider was fully unaware of his machine gun hat, believing himself to be a non-combatant entertainer.
  • I Just Want to Be Badass: Spider with a Top Hat is greatly appreciated by his fellow spell creatures since he entertains them, especially after a hard day's work of being summoned by Star. He however wants to be more than just an entertainment spell. He wants to be a badass just like Star's other more combat-based spells, eventually finding out that he is.
  • Nice Hat: He is called Spider With a Top Hat for a reason.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Spider With a Top Hat is not much bigger than an actual spider, but he can cause some serious damage.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Spider's body is all purple, and he's Star's ultimate summoning spell.
  • Secret Weapon: He is this to Star.
  • Uncertain Doom: If the destruction of the Realm of Magic would kill him or Star's other spells is unspecified.
  • Weaponized Headgear: His top hat doubles as a laser gatling gun.

    The All-Seeing Eye 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maxresdefault_765.jpg

A giant, misty eye that allows others to spy on anybody by looking into it. Originally Eclipsa's spell.


  • All of the Other Reindeer: It's initially shunned by the other spells in Star's wand due to its general creepiness.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: The All-Seeing Eye appears to follow one of Marco's statements as its main form of moral guidance; that is, that it's always best to tell the truth above anything else, even if doing so ends up generating discord among friends.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: What the All-Seeing Eye seems to be, though its lack of speech makes it kind of hard to tell. In "Holiday Spellcial", it exposes the other spells' secrets seemingly because it honestly thought that was the right thing to do, and later uses the same ability to fix the mess it unintentionally made; one could even argue that, as a spying spell, it was simply serving the purpose it was created for.
  • Honesty Is the Best Policy: The Seeing Eye keeps revealing people's secrets because it believes, to quote Marco, "It's always best to tell the truth."
  • Out-of-Context Eavesdropping: It may believe honesty is the best policy, but it doesn't always retain context when it shares what it has seen.
  • Token Good Teammate: Downplayed on the token part. The Seeing Eye may show other peoples secrets but only due to it's abovementioned views towards honesty and is shown socializing with Star's spells later on but when we meet Eclipsa's other spells they are ultimately good but also hostile, dismissive and even arrogant.
  • The Quiet One: It prefers to stay alone, staring at the other spells, not saying a word. And when it needs to say something, it uses clips of events that it has spied on for communication.
  • Quote Mine: The All-Seeing Eye can only communicate by playing clips of what it's previously seen. Unfortunately, it's privy to leave out any sort of context, such as when it showed Spider saying that he wanted to say all of the spells at the party stink; he was talking about how all of the spells didn't want to even try to be friends with Seeing Eye, but the Seeing Eye made it seem like he hated all of them.

    The Firstborn 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s3e23_adult_unicorn_squealing_in_stars_face_6.png
A unicorn that Star created when she restored The Realm of Magic from Toffee's corruption.
  • Ambiguously Evil: It's never made clear if she was intentionally trying to keep Star from leaving the Realm of Magic or if she genuinely didn't understand what the realm was doing to Star. When she meets Star again in "Mama Star", the Firstborn is standoffish but quite helpful, and even gets Star and her friends out of the Realm of Magic when she could just leave them in their disoriented state.
  • Born of Magic: She came into existence when The Realm of Magic was reborneded.
  • Compelling Voice: She uses her song to compel Star to seek out The Realm of Magic in her sleep. It isn't clear whether it was her voice that compelled Star to stay or if it was an affect of The Realm of Magic itself.
  • Exact Words: When the Firstborn sent Moon back "home", she meant to Pie Island, where Festivia was born. And unfortunately, the Pie Folk aren't just bakers, they are also con artists, liars and thieves.
  • Innocent Aliens: She and the other unicorns live in a dimension without any conflict.
  • Killed Off for Real: She was Killed Offscreen by the corrupted millhorse as we see her skull in the finale (though her skeletons still remains alive long enough to speak briefly).
  • The Needless: Since their dimension has no apparent plant life or ecosystem, she and the other unicorns do not appear to need to eat.
  • No Need for Names: She and the baby unicorns do not seem to have names.
  • Prophet Eyes: She has blank off-white eyes.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Her baby form definitely qualifies.
  • Telepathy: Her voice can reach Star across multiple dimensions.
  • Unicorn: Interestingly, unlike other wild unicorns shown in the series, she is intelligent and capable of speech.

    The Spell With No Name 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s4e21_nameless_spell_in_glowworms_light.png
Click here to see the Spell in action 

A butterfly shaped spell with incredibly destructive potential. Initially, Solaria tried to create a Total Annihilation Spell that would to kill all monsters, and wanted it finished by Eclipsa. Eclipsa never wanted to use it, but altered it into the Spell With No Name, a spell so powerful and terrible she feared even naming it, but created it as a last resource in case Septarians ever became a problem.


  • Almighty Idiot: The Spell With No Name not only lacks a proper name, but as shown in the episodes inside the wand, it lacks also personality. It simply walks around mindlessly destroying because it's the only thing it can do.
  • Bad Guys Do the Dirty Work: It kills or corrupts every living thing in the Realm of Magic, removing one of the major moral obstacles to Star destroying the place entirely.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: The spell was meant to be used by Eclipsa to end all monsters, but she altered it to use it only in a last case situation, were she to ever fight against the Septarians.
  • Hell Is That Noise: A whistle-like chime can be heard as the Spell is unleashed and ravages everything in it's path.
  • Knight of Cerebus: The presence of the Spell indicates how dark the situation is in the show. Even the Lighter and Softer atmosphere featuring Star's personified spells becomes darker because of the danger that the Spell presents to the multiverse.
  • Macabre Moth Motif: It's actually a butterfly but it fits the bill considering the destructive impact the spell unleashes on any unfortunate victims.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Inverted. The Spell With No Name was never named because it was so frightening and powerful, which makes its lack of a proper name the actual thing to run away from really fast.
  • Wound That Will Not Heal: If the spell does not kill the target, the wound that it causes can't be healed. Harming a Septarian with it causes the lost limb to never grow back.

    Corrupted Unicorns 
Purple unicorns created when the corruption on Moon's hand spread in the Realm of Magic.
  • Corrupt the Cutie: All of them were innocent unicorns before being tainted by dark magic.
  • Final Boss: Along with Mina Loveberry, they are the final threat of the series and the last things that Marco, Tom and Star fight against before the series end.
  • Purple Is the New Black: Their bodies turn completely purple to showcase how dangerous they are.

    Quest Buy Sloths 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sloth_employees.png
"Not my department."
Voiced by: Fred Tatasciore

The very lazy and unhelpful clerks of Quest Buy, the interdimensional megastore.


  • Animal Stereotypes: Those sloths are slothful. They make Zootopia's sloths look like employees of the month.
  • Funny Animal: They're all talking sloths.
  • Killer Rabbit: Don't underestimate those seemingly passive sloth clerks. They can be really savage, especially to those who make a mess of their workplace.
  • Lazy Bum: One wonders who keeps employing those guys. Probably a sloth manager.
  • Put on a Bus: Quest Buy shuts down in "Out of Business", and they all suddenly disappear with everything in the store to parts unknown.
  • Soul-Sucking Retail Job: They're not all that invested on their job, either because it sucks or because they're sloths (or both).
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: They're already used to all the interdimensional weirdness that are commonplace in Quest Buy. Dragons for example are treated as nothing more than pests for them.
  • You All Look Familiar: All sloth clerks share the same design.

    Father Time 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/father_time_id.png
"Isn't this place incredible? It's like we're living in the future!"
Voiced by: Jim Gaffigan

Keeper of the Wheel of Progress, who keeps it spinning, thus allowing time to flow.


  • The Ageless: This was a given considering that he is Father Time.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has sky blue skin.
  • And I Must Scream: For eons, he had been forced to run on the Wheel of Progress non stop in order for time to flow. He's eternally grateful when Star and Marco figure out a way for the Wheel to spin without him.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of time.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: As part of his childish personality, he's easily distracted by whatever catches his eye.
  • The Bus Came Back: He has a more prominent presence in season 4 as he gave Star a photo featuring herself and Marco enjoying a fun beach day together. The photo would be a positive source of motivation for Star as she would be going through a series of rough patches in her life. He also briefly mentions that the worse times have yet to come.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: He prefers to be barefooted.
  • Immortal Immaturity: Acts very childish despite being eons old. His inability to explore the world has contributed to this.
  • Manchild: When he's free to explore, he rolls around in the mud like a kid.
  • Wizard Beard: He has a long, white beard.

    Roy 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/roy_profile.png
"Alright, kiddies! You're just moments away from maximum mouth-ertainment! So stay cool in a hot goblin dog T-shirt!"
Voiced by: Jerry Trainor

The "Goblin Dog" vendor who is also a goblin himself.


  • Impossibly Delicious Food: Goblin Dogs are hyped up as "the best hot dog in the universe".
  • Mushroom Samba: When Star and friends finally try some of Roy's Goblin Dogs, they're apparently delicious enough to result in vivid hallucinations.
  • Secret Test of Character: After Star and company call shenanigans and confront Roy about keeping people waiting for Goblin Dogs, he eventually reveals the whole ordeal was a test they've just passed, and finally gives them some Goblin Dogs.

    Tad 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s2e13_tad_appears_on_top_of_kellys_head.png
"Namaste, Kelly. How's it been? Just wanted to say how great I've been doing since we broke up."
Voiced by: Greg Cipes

Kelly's ex boyfriend, another Woolett, a bush-like creature who usually blends in with her hair.


  • Bizarre Sexual Dimorphism: Strangely subverted; he looks very different from Kelly (a humanoid compared to a cephalothorax with at least four arms), is the opposite sex, and turns out to be the same species. However, when we see a bunch of Wooletts, it turns out this is polymorphism with no predictable pattern at all, much less sex-based.
  • Cephalothorax: We technically don't see his body, but from the position of his limbs and eyes imply his head and body are one part.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: He sneaks back to Kelly's hair and accuses her of possibly developing a crush on Marco.
  • Head Pet: He appears to be a walking bush the same color as Kelly's hair, making her hair appear even bigger. Ironically, after they break up permanently, Tad starts hosting a nest of birds in his hair.
  • Holier Than Thou: Tad starts keeping a birds' nest in his hair (becoming what Wooletts call "nesters"), and won't shut up about how much better he is than Kelly for supporting someone else.
  • Plant Person: Essentially an ambulatory bush with a face. Although it's apparently just hair.
  • Relationship Revolving Door: Apparently it's common for him and Kelly to break up only to get back together. This happens multiple times a week. This is what makes Tad so unwilling to accept it and move out when they break up for real in "Lava Lake Beach".
  • Romantic Fusion: When he and Kelly are together, Tad spends most of his time blending into Kelly's hair.
  • Surfer Dude: Tad speaks this way, similar to other characters voiced by Greg Cipes.
  • The Thing That Would Not Leave: Despite all attempts to convince him otherwise, Tad absolutely refuses to accept that Kelly wants their relationship to be over, and stubbornly remains in her hair.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: With Kelly, as she is average size for a teenage girl, while Tad's barely a foot tall.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Tad has become even more arrogant since his breakup with Kelly and becoming a living nest for birds, and does nothing but rub it in to Kelly.
  • Vertebrate with Extra Limbs: They're normally concealed in his hair, but Tad has 4 arms, in addition to 2 legs with prehensile feet.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Tad's hair is the same mint green as Kelly's.

    Hungry Larry 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hungry_larry_profile.png
"Oh, you guys are still here?"
Voiced by: Billy West

A Monster-for-hire who offers his services to haunt houses and scare people.


  • Bedsheet Ghost: He resembles one in his original form. Don't be fooled though.

     Jorby 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jorby.png
"Existential war cry!"
Voiced by: Dominic Bisignano

A wolf-like creature who's friends with Kelly. Also her sparring partner.


  • Back for the Finale: Though conspicuously absent for most of season four, even in scenes with Kelly, he returns for the final battle.
  • Blood Knight: He is very savage and aggressive during sparring matches, but is otherwise a regular teenage wolf thing with a bit of angst to the side.
  • Cartoon Creature: He looks like a wolf, but is much bigger than one, has horns and can speak.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: You wouldn't expect somebody called "Jorby" to look like a giant wolf beast.
  • Interspecies Romance: He has a goose girlfriend.
  • Straw Nihilist: Played for Laughs.
    Marco: Leave her (Kelly) alone, man! She's going through some stuff!
    Jorby: We all are! Everyone's in a constant state of falling apart! Existential war cry!
  • Valley Girl: He talks like this, despite being male.

     Talon Raventalon 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/talon_raventalon.png
"Dragon-cyclers don't ask questions! Dragon-cyclers ride!"
Voiced by: Fred Tatasciore

A humanoid bird mercenary hired by Hekapoo to help her out dealing with rogue interdimensional portals.


     Ben Fotino 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s3e34_ben_does_a_hot_dog_have_bones_in_it.png
"I'm Ben Fotino! Booth repair extraordinaire!"
Voiced by: Alex Hirsch

A goblin(?) who works as a photo booth repairman


  • Creepy Good: When Star and Marco first meet him, they were unsettled by his glaring, bloodshot eyes. He deliberately lied about trapping them in the photo booth because he believed that Star and Marco had unresolved romantic tension between each other that needed to be resolved with a kiss.
  • For Your Own Good: Why he trapped Star and Marco in the booth.
  • Karma Houdini: Ben intentionally traps two teenagers inside a photo booth and makes up a lie about the booth requiring them to "do something it wants them to do" or else they'd get stuck there forever, effectively manipulating them into indeed doing something that they shouldn't, leading to instant guilt and regret. His motives for this are solely based on a vague assumption that the two wanted to do that something in the first place, despite one of the teens being currently in a relationship with someone else (although he most likely didn't know that). The plan actually works, though both Star and Marco become visibly shaken by the experience and Ben faces no consequences whatsoever for it.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: He wasn't wrong in assuming that Star and Marco had a crush on each other and it had to be dealt with. However it wasn't as simple as locking them in a room until they kiss, since romance is never that simple, and both are involved with other people as Star is dating Tom at that point and Marco has a tentative relationship with Kelly.
  • Shipper on Deck: Deconstructed Trope. As soon as he saw the rejected photos of Star and Marco, he wanted them to kiss since he believed that they had romantic tension between each other, however, this is a large oversimplification of their actual situation and ends up causing them more misery and more problems than simply making them happy just because they kissed. It also works as a Take That, Audience! for actual shippers in the show.
  • Take That, Audience!: Considering he forced two teens to kiss under the vague threat of trapping them forever. Ben is a jab at the shipping community, who desperately believe that Star and Marco should be together. This more evident by the fact that both Star and Marco are horrified and guilt-ridden by their forced kiss. All the while, Ben is rejoicing and self-righteous in his actions.

     Princess Quasar Caterpillar and Friends 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/quasar.PNG
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/indexia.PNG
Quasar: "I'm never handing over my magic bell, not over Shmarmo's dead body!"
Quasar voiced by: Amanda Céline Miller
Shmarmo voiced by: Adam McArthur
Hanna voiced by: Abby Elliott
Skackie and Indexia voiced by: Grey DeLisle

A sci-fi princess from another dimension and the holder of a magic bell. Quasar and her friends are pretty much a Similar Squad gag of Star and the main heroes. And Jackie.


  • Ambiguously Brown:
    • Quasar is a black princess but comes from another dimension.
    • Shmarmo is an apparently human boy and is implied to be Middle Eastern.
  • Ambiguously Human:
    • Shmarmo looks completely human, dresses in a contemporary style, and seems to be the only one who needs a space helmet to breathe.
    • Hidden messages in The Magic Book of Spells detail that when Skywynne deleted gravity, some Mewmans were stuck on another planet and formed their own colony. Quasar herself may be descended from that population.
  • Batman Can Breathe in Space: Shmarmo's bubble helmet and the space themed setting implies the others can all breathe in space.
  • Cyclops: Hanna is exactly like Janna only with one giant eyeball.
  • Facial Markings: Quasar has two pink planets on her cheeks.
  • Fembot: Jackie's counterpart is a robot with a box-like appearance.
  • Foil: Despite being an Affectionate Parody of the main protagonist, Quasar has several differences compared to Star.
    • While Star's appearance and background is based on Fairytale Motifs and fantasy, Quasar's theme is centered around Science Fantasy.
    • While Star wears devil horns, Quasar wears a helmet with angel wings.
    • Quasar is also shown to practice the already existing spells for her bell rather then coming up with creative/on-the-spot spells like Star.
    • She also seems to have a positive relationship with Indexia which contrasts Star's complicated and frustrating relationship with Glossaryck.
  • Gender Flip: Indexia is pretty much Glossaryck but with a feminine twist.
  • Heavenly Blue: Quasar's outfit is white with various shades of blue. Her helmet also has angel wings which add on to the heavenly theme.
  • Machine Monotone: Skackie's manner of speaking.
  • Meaningful Name: Befitting her role as a parody, Quasar's name is identical to Star's. Quasars are excessive balls of energy found in space that unleash bright light, much like a star. And a caterpillar is just a metamorphic phase away from butterfly.
  • Noodle Implements: It's all but stated that Ludo had become an ongoing antagonist for Quasar and friends as he tries, and fails, to steal her magic wan-BELL.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Quasar's hair reaches down to her knees.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: To highlight her female gender, Indexia has pink skin, a pearl necklace, a ponytail, high heel boots, and a heart shaped jewel on her forehead.
  • Unexplained Accent: Indexia speaks in a smooth Russian accent. It comes off as unexplained since Glossaryck never had an accent.
  • Verbal Tic: Shmarmo has a bit of a stutter in his speech.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Shmarmo says this to Quasar after she declares that she won't give up her magic bell over his dead body.

    Quirky Guy 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vlcsnap_2019_05_09_03h42m17s415_2_5.png
"Let's get rolling! Quirky needs a Devil Mark!"
A four-eyed creature of some sort that joins Marco's dragoncycle club.
