Trivia[edit]

  • Going by descriptions, there are 29 quintillion (2.9*10^19) unique firework stars (plus 1 if you count the blank one in creative mode) and 19 quadragintillion (1.9*10^136) unique firework rockets (plus 3 if you count ones made with blank stars), but going by their visual effects, there are only 2.1 trillion (2.1*10^12) distinct firework stars and 39 sesvigintillion (3.9*10^82) distinct firework rockets.
