The Crystal Stars are seven powerful star-shaped gemstone artifacts from the Mushroom Kingdom, debuting in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. They are from the town of Rougeport, and serve as keys to open the Thousand-Year Door itself. Mario, with serveral partners, journeys across the country of Rougeport in order to find the Crystal Stars and save the world from the Shadow Queen.
