The Star Rod, also referred to as the Star Wand[1] or Wand[2], is a major item appearing in Kirby's Adventure and its remake, powering the Fountain of Dreams to send dreams to everyone in Dream Land.

In the Super Smash Bros. series, the Star Rod is featured as an item in every installment starting with the first game, Super Smash Bros.. The Star Rod can be used as a battering item, or by using as Smash Attack the player can shoot out a star at opponents. The Star Rod can shoot twenty stars. Two characters swing their Star Rods in a different manner than the rest: Sheik shoots two stars one after another while Captain Falcon shoots one, then four stars at once.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the Star Rod appears as a spirit. In order to obtain the spirit, the player must fight four Kirbys that use Star Rods.
