A Prankster Comet is a comet that sometimes circles galaxies in Super Mario Galaxy. If Mario goes to a galaxy with a Prankster Comet circling it, he will have to do a special challenge. They can be moved around by feeding a special Luma 20 Star Bits. In Super Mario Galaxy 2, however, Prankster Comets need to be summoned by a Comet Medal.
