Summary[edit | edit source]

04- Stardrop – Indie Pogo

Stardrop is a lightweight character in Indie Pogo. They are very fast and mobile in the air, able to trick his opponent with their mobility. Since they are a starting character, their moves are easy to understand for beginners, and they are also the character used to complete the tutorial.

Moveset[edit | edit source]

Side Melee : Stardrop causes a firework explosion on both sides of him. Deals 5 damage and has decent horizontal knockback. Cannot be used again unless another move is used before it.

Up Melee : Stardrop swings his arm and spreads an arc of stardust above him. Deals 5 damage.

Down Melee : Stardrop puts his legs together and spins around like a drill. Hits up to 5 times, dealing 1 damage per hit.

Neutral Special | Quasar Burst : Stardrop attracts any active Starshot projectile, sending it flying towards him at high speeds. Projectile does not stop until it collides with a player or surface. Hitting with the clap itself deals 4 damage.

Side Special | Lunging Latch : Stardrop lunges forward in an arc, latching onto any player he connects with before kicking them. The latch deals 1 damage while the subsequent kick deals 3 damage and hefty horizontal. knockback. Angle of the arc can be adjusted using the control stick during startup.

Up Special | Cosmic Comet : Stardrop turns into a ball and dashes in the direction held, dealing 7 damage. Holding the button allows Stardrop to charge this attack and slowly descend. Successfully landing this attack allows Stardrop to use it again.

Down Special | Groundward Starshot: Stardrop launches a Star below them, that splits into 5 little stars a few moments after. The main star does 7 damage, while the shrapnel stars deal 4 damage. If the button is held for the duration of the deployment, the projectile will be become remotely detonatable, and can be manually detonated by pressing Down Special again. This projectile also interacts with Neutral Special and Grounded Charge.

Grounded Charge | Celestial Calling : Stardrop summons a Star from the sky. The Star in itself doesn't do damage, but when the button is released, it will turn into a horizontal laser covering a lot of range, doing between 4 and 6 damage. If Stardrop fails to time the attack, he will clap with his hands, doing 9 damage but having an hitbox around him. The explosion of this star can detonate an active Starshot projectile, creating another explosion.

SUPER | Superstar : Stardrop turns into a ball that deals 1 damage and can be controlled in the air. A press of the attack button will make Stardrop dash towards where the stick is angled, doing 2 damage. The super lasts 7 seconds. Stardrop is invulnerable when dashing, but can be Pogoed when in ball form, cancelling the Super.

Competitive Play[edit | edit source]

Attributes[edit | edit source]

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Tiny: Small hurtbox and overall pretty fast.
  • Toolkit: Has decent combos and damage output. Super is a good kill confirm, while also being an ok reversal.
  • Projectiles: Doesn't have an abusable projectile. The starshot requires too much set up to be reliable.
  • Neutral: Doesn't have a way to open people up reliably, nor many tools to control space correctly.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Stardrop was the 4th character to be added to the game.[2]
  • Stardrop also serves as the game's icon.
  • The character card on Kickstarter listed Stardrop Blaster as the game of origin, but the Space Junction screenshot used is actually from Stardrop Sprint.
  • Trevor once joked that Stardrop's only emotion is happiness. [3]
    • As a polar opposite to the above, Money Stardrop is frowning in most of his animations.
  • Stardrop's silver palette is likely based off Ultra Instinct Goku. This is due to a running joke during the first Indie Pogo tournament wherein high-level Stardrop plays from the developer Trevor sparked the moniker "Ultra Instinct Stardrop" from spectators.
  • The large star projectile used in Stardrop's down aerial attack can also be seen as the cursor on the game's main menu.
  • Stardrop had a Supreme Skin teased during the game's Kickstarter period called "Rainbow Stardrop". While it has yet to be added to the game, the alternating palette below was animated for a proof of concept.
