The Starman (スターマン, Starman) is an enemy from the EarthBound series.
Starmen originated in Mother and later reappeared in EarthBound in several variants, both as regular enemies and as bosses. They are part of Giygas's army in both games. Their teleportation ability is a reference to how they move in the overworld of EarthBound.
The "SMAAAASH!!" graphic appearing when a Starman is defeated is a reference to the message which appears in the EarthBound series when an attack deals a critical hit.
A Starman appears as a trophy. It can be obtained through the Trophy Lottery and the single-player Regular Matches.
The Starman's only appearance in Brawl is as a sticker.
A Starman appears both as a Smash Run enemy and as an Assist Trophy, with the same behavior. It teleports around and attacks with two possible variants of PK Beam: PK Beam γ, which is a single focused beam attack, and PK Beam Ω, which is a barrage of beams in all directions. The beams can be reflected.
The Assist Trophy Starman can be defeated, and when it is, it is sent flying with a "SMAAAASH!!" graphic appearing. The "SMAAAASH!!" graphic also appears if the Smash Run version of Starman is hit by its reflected PK Beam, which will also defeat it in one hit.
Starman returns as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, acting similarly to how it did in Super Smash Bros. 4. Training Mode describes their Assist Trophy: Warps around the stage, firing shots created from PSI.
