Star Post

Star Posts (再スタート・マーカー Sai Sutāto Mākā?, lit. "Sai Start Marker") also referred to as Point Markers (ポイントマーカー Pointo Mākā?), Lampposts, and Check Points, are distinguished markers and common objects in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. Star Posts serve as the series' progress markers. They are found exclusively in the Zones. When passing a Star Post, the players' progress up to that point in the Zone will be saved, so when the player loses a life, the playable character will start over from the last Star Post they passed.

Star Posts are similar in design to, but smaller than, street lights in real life, as the design of Star Posts has been simple and tends to be the same throughout the series: a yellow/blue post and a stretch rod with a bulb on the top. The way the rod spins has varied, but usually, in 2D games, it rotates 360 degrees twice and after that goes to the same vertical position while the bulb part changes its color or flickers.
