Kumatora using PK Starstorm in Mother 3.

PK Starstorm (PKスターストーム PK Sutāsutōmu), known as PSI Starstorm (PSIスターストーム PSI Sutāsutōmu) in EarthBound, is a PSI ability deals heavy damage on all enemies, is impossible to avoid, and has the possibility of decreasing one of the targets' Psychic Shield strength by 1.

Although PK Starstorm is only learned in EarthBound by Poo, and in Mother 3 by Kumatora, it's the Final Smash of Ness and Lucas in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Some enemies, such as the Ghost of Starman from EarthBound and the Men's Room Sign from Mother 3 can also use this ability.

At its Ω (Omega) level, its power in EarthBound is rivaled only by PSI Rockin Ω, and in Mother 3 by PK Love Ω (and PK Ground depending on the HP of the target). In Mother 3, this technique only has one level that Kumatora can learn, rather than having both an α and Ω like EarthBound's iteration does.

The Virtual Console re-release of EarthBound alters the animations of PSI Starstorm by significantly blurring them. This is done to reduce the risk of epileptic seizures, a standard precaution in re-releases of older Nintendo games.

TriviaEdit

  • Despite the fact that Poo and Kumatora are the only ones that can learn it in their respective appearances, it is both Ness's and Lucas's Final Smash move in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.
    • A possible explanation for this discrepancy is offered in the Super Smash Bros. Brawl depicting it, which states that Poo and Kumatora taught each of them the technique for their appearances in the Super Smash Bros. series.
  • Even though Kumatora's PK Starstorm needs more PP to use than Poo's PSI Starstorm Ω, it is actually weaker than it.
    • This may be due to Poo having formal PSI training, and Kumatora merely being gifted in Offense PSI.
      • Another explanation is that Kumatora's Starstorm may be a level somewhere between Poo's Starstorm α and Starstorm Ω.
