Starites are small, sparkly, star-like objects with 5 points. It is the end goal of Maxwell collecting all of these rare objects.



In the original Scribblenauts, Maxwell collects Starites to visit new areas to find more Starites. In the successor, Super Scribblenauts, Maxwell collects Starites in certain constellations. In Scribblenauts Unlimited Maxwell needs to collect the Starites to save his sister Lily. In the last game developed by 5th Cell, Scribblenauts Unmasked, Maxwell and Lily need to find Starites to return to their home.

In Scribblenauts, there are 251 Starites to be found. In Super Scribblenauts there are 122 Starites. In Scribblenauts Unlimited there are 106 Starites, including the Starite Shards. In Scribblenauts Unmasked you use Reputation Points instead of Starites, but there are 11 found in missions introducing the Justice League.

A Starite can be manipulated, either to make obtaining it easier or harder. For example, a Starite will roll if pushed and can be attached to things using rope-like objects. However, a Starite can also be blown up, burnt or lost down a hole. Many "action" stages see Maxwell trying to avoid breaking or dropping the Starite in some way. It is mainly threatened by steel balls, pits, and spikes, which instantly break it.


Typing "Starite" or any of its synonyms will give you a fake one that doesn't sparkle. However, in the Level Editor, you get a choice to spawn a real one as the goal. Also, in Wii U/PC versions of Scribblenauts Unlimited, it can be spawned using "$" objects or @ objects.

This object doesn't have too much usage, only being a throwable object. Despite being a fake, Scribblenauts will protect it as if it was the real deal.

One of "Starite's" synonyms being "What is the Question" could be a reference to the game show Jeopardy!. "Answer", "The Answer" and "What is the Question" also all reference P10-11.

Starite Shards

New to Scribblenauts Unlimited, Starite Shards are pieces of starites. They are scattered across the planet. There are 400 shard quests and 10 shards make a Starite, so that makes 40 starites made from shards. These shards are obtainable by either helping people with errands that requires you to use the notebook, or by the object shards which spawns when you complete one of the categories for them.

Rope Glitch

In Scribblenauts Unlimited, if you attach a rope to a Starite and put the rope in the magic backpack, you will put both the starite and the rope in. This can be used to instantly complete levels.If you grab the starite outside the level, the Starite will get the music and the animation to play, but no Starite Get Screen will show up and the game will be softlocked.
