— Figurine description of Sportletini from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
Sportletini is an enemy which made its first appearance in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. Rather than appearing naturally, it splits apart from a defeated Sportle and flies around erratically. It takes one hit from Kirby Tank to defeat, awarding 100 points and 3 Point Stars.
Sportletini emerges from Sportle, who only appears in the stage Woodland Battle.
