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 5 minutes to despawn and are immune to explosions. In Bedrock Edition, nether star items never despawn, neither by time nor by explosions.
