Star Butterfly's wand, also called the royal magic wand, is a magical item and the royal family of the Kingdom of Mewni's greatest family heirloom. Star Butterfly is given the wand by her mother when she turned 14, and she must protect it while trying to figure out how to use it.In "Storm the Castle", Star destroys her wand with the "Whispering Spell" in order to save Marco from Toffee. While the wand is salvaged and has a new upgrade, a piece of it is left behind.
First appearanceThe wand is light purple with white wings attached to the handle. The head of the wand has a blue circle with a gold star and pink hearts surrounding the crystal star inside. There is a yellow crown on the tip of the wand, a blue butterfly between the head and handle, and a yellow tip with a blue heart at the end of the handle (which is actually the wand's charger).
After the wand loses its magic and unleashes an explosion following Star using the Whispering Spell, a new tiny unicorn comes to recharge the wand, giving it a new appearance. This version of the wand is also light purple with white wings, but the wings are sharper and curved more toward the wand's tip. The faceplate consists of a light blue circle with a pentagon pattern, half of the gold star, and five pink hearts. The yellow crown on the tip of the wand is retained from its previous appearance, but the butterfly between the head and handle and the heart at the handle's base are now yellow instead of blue, with the butterfly taking on a new, larger shape. Bluish-purple tape also wraps around the handle.

The wand is meant for casting magical spells. The user of the wand can either make up their own spells or recite perfected spells that are written down in the Magic Instruction Book. In other cases, the user can operate the wand without saying spells.
The wand can make whatever the user thinks of a reality, like puppies, snakes, and other creatures. It can also be used to create attacks. When Star uses the wand in her first fight, she uses it to make a rainbow fist punch, a jellybean hallucination mist, and a mega narwhal blast.
The wand can transform or alter things, like giving different features to something or changing it entirely. It can also transform itself, as seen when Star made it into a morningstar mace in "School Spirit".
In "My New Wand!", Glossaryck thoroughly examines the wand, noticing half of its star faceplate is missing and discovering that the unicorn powering it has been corrupted by an evil force. Nevertheless, when Star attempts to use it, the wand sprays glowing green goo in all directions and forms a second, smaller tower in the Diaz Household.
In "Wand to Wand", it is shown that the new wand will not work properly if Star is feeling negative emotions, like anger or frustration, with any spells she tries to cast being corrupted by those emotions. But if she is feeling more positive emotions, it will work correctly (such as when she felt concern for Marco as he was being pulled into a vortex, which allowed her to conjure an energy rope to pull him to safety).
"Spider With a Top Hat" reveals that many of the entities summoned by Star for her spells are actual living beings, such as her Warnicorns and the titular Spider With a Top Hat. These spells live in a hammerspace within Star's wand, which manifests in the form of living quarters. They are equipped with many amenities, such as a main lounge and gymnasium. The spells are apparently classified by their roles, such as for combat or entertainment.
"Into the Wand" reveals that the wand is an extension of its user's memories, which manifest as its interior. Should the user traverse through the wand interior for too long, their new memories become their old memories, and they run the risk of their current self being overwritten by a past incarnation of themselves.
AppearanceThe wand changes in appearance depending on who wields it. In Queen Butterfly's hands, the wand is blue and gold with a crystal heart-shaped crest. In Ludo's dreams of him having the wand in his possession, it has a black handle with black bat wings, and a small skull for a head with three spikes protruding from it. In Lobster Claws' possession, it is either purple with a black eyeball-shaped crest and thorny wings (when Lobster Claws is overcome by the wand's power) or red with a yellow eye and crab pincer-shaped wings (when Lobster Claws is in control).
The wand has also taken different forms for Star's grandmothers: a fan for Celena the Shy, an energy sword for Solaria the Monster Carver, and an umbrella for Eclipsa the Queen of Darkness.
- In the pilot episode, the wand is pink, with a pink heart within a white circle on the tip and an antenna with a star on top.
- The wand's designs closely resemble those from various anime TV series:
- As revealed in "Quest Buy", the wand's operation depends on it being charged. If the wand is not regularly charged and runs out of power, it will die forever. The charger itself is the crystal heart at the base of the wand.
- It is powered by a miniature unicorn that runs on a small treadmill inside the head, which opens up like a compact mirror.
- When the wand is at full power, the unicorn is healthy and full of energy, but when the wand runs low on power, the unicorn becomes thin and weak.
- In "Storm the Castle", the original unicorn who was powering the wand perishes after Star recites the whispering spell, but a new unicorn comes to replace it after the wand creates an explosion.
- As seen in "Pixtopia", it is durable enough to parry a sword.
- In "Fetch", Star mentions that the wand emits radiation, which is why Queen Butterfly advises against Star sleeping with her wand under her pillow.
- In "Raid the Cave", the wand's head twists off to reveal a fountain pen.
