Dashing Thief Sparkla, referred to as Masque the Dashing Thief on two occasions in The Perfect Infiltration, is a Sparkla Theet in Princess Peach: Showtime! He is initially trapped in the basement of the Sparkle Theater by Grape. After clearing The Stolen Statue (in which a the titular golden statue of himself is stolen by the Sour Thieves), Princess Peach and Stella have the opportunity to rescue the Dashing Thief Sparkla in the stage The Dark Prison & the Dangerous Trap.

In the aforementioned stage, the Dashing Thief Sparkla is trapped in a cage, so Dashing Thief Peach must unlock four locks scattered in different areas. After all locks are deactivated, the Dashing Thief Sparkla is released, but the place starts falling apart, therefore the heroes must escape. After unlocking more locks and ziplining, the Dashing Thief Sparkla and Dashing Thief Peach use hang gliders to fly to the exit. After clearing the stage, the Dashing Thief Sparkla can be found on the second floor of the Sparkle Theater, where he is admired by other Theets.

Before the final battle against Grape, all of the Sparklas, including the Dashing Thief Sparkla give Princess Peach Sparkle Power to allow her to transform into Radiant Peach. All of the Sparklas are then seen in the ending where they celebrate with everyone.
