The Withered Nether Star, also known as the Wither Storm Nether Star, is an item found in Minecraft: Story Mode. It was dropped by the Wither Storm and first appears in A Block and a Hard Place.
- In "A Block and a Hard Place", The Wither Storm drops the Nether Star upon death, but it is not seen until Ellegaard/Magnus give it to Jesse.
- In the same episode, Ellegaard/Magnus passes the Nether Star to Jesse to activate the Rainbow Beacon.
- In "Order Up!", the Withered Nether Star can be seen on display inside the Order Hall.
- In "A Journey's End?", the Withered Nether Star can be seen once again on display in the Order Hall.
- In "Hero in Residence", the Withered Nether Star is mentioned to be powering the Rainbow Beacon in Beacontown.
A regular Nether Star also exists in Minecraft: Story Mode, but, unlike its Withered Nether Star counterpart, it is not attributed to the defeat of the Wither Storm.
- The Withered Nether Star looks similar to a regular Nether Star, but is instead colored purplish-black to match the Wither Storm's color scheme.
- In Episode 5, a normal Nether Star can also be seen on display inside the Order Hall.
