Article on Super Mario Wiki Luma (species)

Lumas (チコ, Chiko) are a species of creature from the Mario series. They appear in a variety of colors, and possess a number of distinct abilities related to outer space, most notably the ability to transform into celestial bodies. The Lumas are commonly seen alongside Rosalina, who acts as their surrogate mother.

Creature Description[edit]

Two different colored Lumas in their debut of Super Mario Galaxy.

Lumas are star-like creatures that have appeared in central roles in both Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2. They are friendly creatures who have the ability to transform into several outer space-related objects, such as Launch Stars, planets, and even Galaxies. They can also grant abilities to others, such as the ability to shoot Star Bits or Spin. Not much is known about the Lumas' origin, although what is known is that upon death, they are reborn into new stars. They come in a variety of colors, including yellow, red, blue, green, apricot, dark brown, pink, purple, turquoise, and orange, while even giant varieties have also been seen.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

As a playable character[edit]

The Lumas fight alongside Rosalina as newcomers in Super Smash Bros. 4. They function similarly to Pikmin, but can fight on their own, similar to the Ice Climbers. They come in six colors: yellow, green, blue, red, apricot (the color of the baby Luma that joins Mario in the Super Mario Galaxy games), and dark brown with blue eyes (the colors of Polari).


Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS trophy descriptions[edit]

Lumas do not have any trophies of them alone, although they share several trophies with Rosalina.

Rosalina & Luma
The mysterious Rosalina lives in the Comet Observatory with the Lumas. She first traveled with them in search of their mother. In Smash Bros., Rosalina and Luma can fight in different places at the same time. If you can trap someone between Rosalina and Luma, you'll be able to unleash incredible damage!
Rosalina & Luma (Alt.)
Rosalina can pull in items and projectiles around her with her Gravitational Pull move. Her up special Launch Star is a diagonal jump and, though harmless, it has exceptional range. You also have some control over Rosalina's trajectory when she uses it.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

As a playable character[edit]

Lumas reappear alongside Rosalina in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He had been nerfed during the transition, having more endlag and less knockback on most of his moves. However, Lumas attack have a 1.5 multiplier when launched away from Rosalina, which increases its damage output.




  • When the yellow Luma is KO'd in Smash 4 and Ultimate, it respawns as a Luma of another color derived from Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2:
    • Yellow Lumas can transform into Launch Stars and Sling Stars. Giant yellow Lumas also appear in Super Mario Galaxy 2.
    • Blue Lumas can transform into Pull Stars.
    • Green Lumas can be found on the Planet of Trials after finding the three Green Power Stars in Super Mario Galaxy.
    • Red Lumas allow Mario to use the Red Star while on the Comet Observatory, and during one of the Purple Coin missions in Super Mario Galaxy.
    • Baby Luma, who assists Mario by granting him the ability to spin, has a unique cream coloration.
    • Polari, Rosalina's trusted advisor in Super Mario Galaxy, has a unique overall coloration of a blackish brown body and sky blue eyes. A tip confirms that Polari is indeed the blackish brown Luma that can appear alongside Rosalina.
  • In Ultimate, if a Luma dies and is launched, hits a ceiling then the ground again, it can still attack before it vanishes.
