Assist Star is an item in Kirby: Triple Deluxe and Kirby: Planet Robobot. It contains a single piece of food, much like Bubble items in Kirby: Squeak Squad. By tapping the Assist Star on the touch screen or pressing the Y button, the player will use it, restoring some or all of Kirby's Health.
Bandana Waddle Dee tosses Assist Stars to Kirby whenever the two characters meet, making him the only source of the items. The contents of an Assist Star will improve if the player obtains a StreetPass from another owner of the game.
An Assist Star looks like a thin, transparent star shape. It can contain various healing items, including an ice cream cone, cherries, crème brûlée, an Energy Drink, a Maxim Tomato, and a Reviving Tomato. Action Stars reuse the Assist Star's overall design.
