Blight of the Sea is a level in Princess Peach: Showtime!, located in the upper right on the fifth floor of the Sparkle Theater. This stage is unlocked after clearing all of 4F.


The level starts out with Theets being kidnapped away by a large underwater ship in the distance. Peach recruits a yellow fish with purple fins, who seem particularly excited about Mermaid Peach's singing voice.

After swimming by and optionally rescuing Mermaid Theets on the way to catch up with the ship, she defeats four Sour Bunch mermaids with help from the fish, and makes her way into a large hole on the front right of the ship.

Finding Theets and fish trapped inside a cage in the ship, Peach recruits a school of small fish to open two fences, from which an eel emerges and is recruited to smash the cage. Peach then heads up the stairs to a concert stage, where she holds a concert similar to that of Melody of the Sea.

Sparkle Gems[edit]

  1. In the backroom pose elevator between the second and third Theets in the stair-shaped rock near the start. Inside, Peach must uncorrupt the four Theets inside with her mermaid voice, which has the same effect on Theets as Sparkle.
  2. Within the clamshell on top of the same stair-shaped rock as above.
  3. In the autoscrolling second section, within the clamshell in a bottom left sideway, after the first corrupted Theet.
  4. Reaching the pirate ship entrance section.
  5. Inside the pirate ship, there is a grate on the floor that small fish can swim through. The Sparkle Gem is found below the grate.
  6. Reaching the section where the eel smashes the cage.
  7. Making all fishes in the final concert glow up.


Ribboner can be found after recruiting the yellow fish very soon after the start of the level, if Peach then goes back to the start of the level and opens the far upper left clamshell. He awards the Mermaid Ribbon for Stella.
