Starman Jr. is an enemy in EarthBound Beginnings and the second boss of the game. He appears to be a smaller version of a Starman with pink coloring, and is the cause of the odd sound agitating the many animals at the Choucream Zoo. Starman Jr. resides in a capsule at the topmost floor of the Superintendent's Office in the eastern part of the zoo. After being defeated, all of the animals calm down and can no longer be encountered.
Defeating Starman Jr. is significantly easier if Ninten has received the Franklin Badge from Pippi prior to the battle, as it will prevent his PK Beam γ from causing an instant knockout and instead reflect it back (though the reflected attack won't have any effect on him).
|Attack||Deals damage to one party member|
|Ready for attack||Guard|

- The Starman Jr. actually outranks the Starman in Fight.
