Dark Space & the Great Meteor is a level in Princess Peach: Showtime!, located in the third-from-left in the bottom section of the basement of the Sparkle Theater. It is the third level where the Mighty Peach transformation is used.


The show starts with Peach being approached by the Professor Theet in a spacecraft. Peach steps up on a hover platform, led along by the Professor Theet. The ride takes 1 minute 33 seconds. Initially, Sour Bunch members land on the platform and are defeated. After a while, various meteors are sent towards the platform, and Peach must grab, lift, and throw the meteors to prevent the platform from breaking apart.

Upon arrival, the Professor Theet has been kidnapped by a Sour Bunch squid. Peach heads up some staircases to defeat the squid and rescue the Professor Theet.

The two of them team up to find Mighty Sparkla trapped inside a sphere with a window. The Professor Theet figures he can hack into its dashboard, but needs Peach to keep approaching meteors and the Sour Bunch members on top of them, from him in order to hack it.

After succeeding in freeing Mighty Sparkla, they find their intended way out on a broken staircase is being bombarded by meteors, leading to Peach and Mighty Sparkla taking an elevator up to and into the skies (leaving the Professor Theet behind).

Flying together, Peach and Mighty Sparkla initially fly next to each other to punch their way through incoming meteors and cars. Mighty Sparkla then suggests a setup where Peach throws Mighty Sparkla in front of her repeatedly, eventually reaching the largest meteor and smashes through it.
