A Kung Fu Legend is a level in Princess Peach: Showtime!, located in the upper left on the fifth floor of the Sparkle Theater. It is the second level where the Kung Fu transformation is used.


Peach starts out in her Kung Fu Peach transformation, and is approached by Theets who hear screams from inside a large building complex. Peach fights her way up through the buildings, defeating Sour Bunch members and the Kung Fu master on her way.

Peach defeated the first fight with the Kung Fu master with a two-step combo attack. Moving on through more enemies and saving local training Theets also the way, reaching up to the second fight with the Kung fu master. The first phase is different from those of the first fight and those in A Kung Fu Tale: Peach must kick back various fastballs and high balls at Kung Fu master, similar to Ultra Machine and the WarioWare Gold version of One Hit Wonder. The second phase follows the earlier rules: one successful combo will defeat him.
