Star Fragment

From Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki
Star Fragment NH Icon.png

Star Fragments are an item introduced in New Horizons. They are found on the beach the day after the player wishes on shooting stars during a Meteor Shower or shooting star sighting. They can be used in DIY recipes to create items such as the Star Wand. The fragments bear a strong resemblance to Konpeitō, a Japanese candy, which is what the Star Bits in Super Mario Galaxy games were modeled after as well.

Types[edit]

There are several different types of Star Fragments.

Celeste's stories[edit]

If the player has a zodiac item in their pocket (either a star sign fragment or an item from the Astrology Set), they can show Celeste the item and she will tell a story about mythology based on the item.

Aries[edit]

"There were a pair of royal twins named Phrixus and Helle whose stepmother, the queen, hated them. When one of the queen's schemes put the twins' lives in peril, their mother prayed to Zeus for help. A flying sheep with golden fleece descended from the heavens and rescued the twins! Zeus commemorated the event by hanging the image of the sheep in the stars as the constellation, Aries. Did you notice how Zeus celebrates things Zeus did for Zeus's followers by hanging things in Zeus's sky?

Taurus[edit]

"An extraordinarily beautiful princess called Europa was picking flowers with her servants by the sea. She was approached by a lovely white bull that seemed very friendly, so Europa hopped on its back. As she did so, the bull suddenly took off, dashing across the ocean in a most unbull-like way. The bull, it turned out, was the god, Zeus, who had fallen for Europa...but he had trouble with boundaries. The constellation, Taurus, honors the great bull, and Europa herself has a whole continent named for her! But, continent names aside, I imagine Europa would have preferred it if Zeus simply asked her to tea."

Gemini[edit]

"The great god, Zeus, had twin sons named Castor and Pollux, who were both brave warriors. While the brothers were very close and alike in many ways, only Pollux had inherited Zeus's immortality. When Castor eventually died, the grieving Pollux prayed to share his immortality with his brother. Zeus took pity and turned the twins into the constellation, Gemini, so they would always be together. I suppose the lesson of this story is that, occasionally, even Zeus does something for someone else."

Cancer[edit]

"There was a monster called the Hydra poisoning a spring that was a kingdom's main water supply. When the great hero Heracles heard about this, he set out to rid the land of the beast. Just as Heracles was about to land the finishing blow, the Hydra's friend, a crab, arrived to help it out. But the crab was no match for Heracles, who stepped on it and crushed it instantly. The brave crab, who cared so deeply for its friend, was immortalized in the stars as the constellation, Cancer. If only everyone was so lucky as to have a friend who would come running when they're in a pinch!"

Leo[edit]

"There was a mighty lion with unbreakable skin that menaced the forest of Nemea. The great hero Heracles fought the beast and defeated it with nothing but his incredible strength! The goddess Hera placed the lion in the stars as the constellation, Leo, to honor its fight with the hero. I'm not usually one to gossip, but I believe there may have been bad blood between Hera and Heracles!"

Virgo[edit]

"Persephone, daughter of Demeter, was picking flowers when she was abducted by Hades, god of the dead. Demeter was the goddess of the harvest, and she was so upset that all the crops stopped growing! Eventually, mother and child were reunited, but only for part of each year, which is why we have seasons. The constellation, Virgo, is depicted as a young woman holding wheat, in honor of this story. Between you and me, I think Demeter was suffering from what we call 'empty-nest syndrome.'"

Libra[edit]

"The goddess of justice, Astrea, had a set of scales that could measure whether someone was good or bad. But she didn't have much use for them until Pandora opened the box that brought evil into the world. I guess someone thought they were interesting enough to hang in the sky as the constellation, Libra, though. I do wonder why she had those scales already, though... Were the gods...up to something?"

Scorpio[edit]

"There was a very skilled hunter named Orion who boasted often of his abilities. Orion's arrogance angered the gods, who sent a poisonous scorpion to sting him to death. The goddess Artemis, who had always been fond of Orion, arranged for him to become a constellation. But he still feared scorpions, which is why his constellation and Scorpio are never seen together. Personally, I try to learn from this tale by being humble about my skills as an astronomer and DIY enthusiast."

Sagittarius[edit]

"The half-man, half-horse creatures called centaurs were a rowdy, troublesome bunch. With the exception of Chiron, who was very wise as well as a gifted healer. But Chiron got mixed up in a battle between Heracles and the centaurs, and was hit by a poisoned arrow. But the poison could not kill Chiron, because he was an immortal being of divine parents. The god Zeus saw his discomfort and took pity on him, raising him into the sky as a constellation. Immortality is one of those things that SEEMS cool, but...it's probably not for everyone."

Capricorn[edit]

"The gods were enjoying a fantastical banquet by a river when the terrible monster Typhon appeared! Unprepared as they were for a fight, the gods assumed various animal shapes and fled with all speed. But Pan, the goatish god of shepherds, jumped into the river, transforming as he did so. Perhaps because he was so shocked, he did not finish changing himself into a fish, and only changed his tail. The chief god, Zeus, was highly amused at the sight of a goatfish, and hung the image in the stars. I feel sort of bad for Pan in that story, having a constellation based on this embarrassing incident It would be a bit like someone making a billboard of you while you were changing your clothes!"

Aquarius[edit]

"The gods found themselves in need of a cupbearer to refresh their drinks as they lounged on Mount Olympus. Zeus, in the form of a great eagle, spotted an astonishingly handsome young man named Ganymede. He, er, convinced Ganymede to serve on Mount Olympus, though it meant he would never see his family again. To console Ganymede's parents, Zeus hung the cupbearer's image in the stars so they could see him. Before hearing this story, I had no idea there was so much drama in the lives of the extremely attractive!"

Pisces[edit]

"The gods were enjoying a fantastical banquet by a river when the terrible monster Typhon appeared! As the gods ran, Aphrodite tied herself to her son Eros with a rope so that they wouldn't be separated. They then turned into fish and fled, which is why Pisces is often depicted as two fish connected by a rope. While I enjoy that story, it does leave unexplored one detail about which I am terribly curious... How did the vain Aphrodite react on finding out that her constellation would portray her as a fish?"
