An electric spark[1], also simply referred to as spark[2], is an obstacle in Wario Land 4. They only appear in the level Pinball Zone, within rooms containing pinball puzzles involving the use of Chomp balls. Electric sparks are continuously generated by rods which are attached to the tops of ceilings or platforms. The sparks fall and then travel along the ground, harming Wario on contact. However, the Fat Wario transformation is immune to the spark's effects. The rod that the sparks come from cannot be destroyed.

Depending on the game mode difficulty the player has selected, electric sparks may not activate at all until the level's latter rooms. In S-Hard mode, all electric sparks are functional.
