How to Get Shiny Stars

You will receive shiny stars instead of regulars stars if you clear all Worlds without using the Invincibility Leaf power-up. Note that this will still work even if the Assist Block appears but you do not trigger the invincible state.

You can redo levels where you did not get Shiny Stars by avoiding the Invincibility Leaf the next time you go through the level.
