Mario facing off against the Millennium Star in the Stardust Battle.
The Millennium Star causes a star storm, which the players have to avoid because if they are hit by a star, the game will end. After the stars are no longer red, the player can pick them up and throw them at the Millennium Star. Each time he is hit, he will change the course up into something with a lot less traction, making it even more difficult to dodge his attack. After six hits, the Millennium Star will be defeated, and the player will win.
- - Move
- - Jump
- - Grab/Throw Star
- How often the Millennium Star changes the course up depends on your difficulty setting (In Easy Mode, it is every hit, Normal Mode is every two hits, and Hard Mode is every three).
