- Going by descriptions, there are 2.9×1019 unique firework stars (plus 1 if including the blank firework) and 1.9×10136 unique firework rockets (plus 3 if including ones made with blank stars), but going by their visual effects, there are only 2.1 trillion (2.1×1012) distinct firework stars and 3.9×1082 distinct firework rockets.
- Putting firework stars on rockets used for flying with elytra will cause the player to take explosion damage.
