The nether star can be obtained only by defeating the wither, which is a boss mob. One nether star is dropped each time; the drop chance or amount is not affected by the Looting enchantment. In Java Edition, nether stars dropped by withers take 10 minutes to despawn instead of the usual 5. In Bedrock Edition, nether star items never despawn.
