— Description of Sparky from the Kirby: Triple Deluxe website

Sparky is an enemy that has appeared in several games of the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby's Adventure. It is a drop-shaped life form, usually green or turquoise in color, with a pair of oval, black eyes and two orbs on stalks, (which are presumably hands, but resembled eyes in its original artwork) which it uses to produce electricity to defend itself with. Sparky typically either sits in place or hops around at a decent pace. In all its appearances, it contains the Spark ability.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Adventure/Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land[edit]

KA Sparky sprite.png Sparky made its first appearance in Kirby's Adventure, first appearing along with Waddle Doo and Hot Head in Stage 1 of Vegetable Valley. Here is where its basic look and behavior was established. Sparky comes in several colors depending on the level (blue, orange, green, etc.). As with most other enemies, Sparky also appears in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land.

Locations[edit]

Sparky can be found in the following levels and stages:

Kirby's Pinball Land[edit]

Sparky appears as one of the enemies in Poppy Brothers' Land. It can appear in the 'thought bubble' on the left-hand Kirby on the second level, and will emerge if that Kirby is hit during that moment. If Sparky is then hit, a bonus is rewarded to the player.

Kirby's Dream Course[edit]

KDCSparky.png Sparky appears in this game as one of the enemies that can be defeated on courses to open up the hole. Kirby merely needs to run into one to defeat it, and gain the Spark ability in the process.

Locations[edit]

In Kirby's Dream Course, Sparky can be found in the following courses and holes:
