Kung Fu Sparkla, Princess Peach: Showtime!

Kung Fu Sparkla is a Sparkla Theet in Princess Peach: Showtime! He[note 1] is initially trapped in the basement of the Sparkle Theater by Grape. After clearing A Kung Fu Legend, Princess Peach and Stella have the opportunity to rescue the Kung Fu Sparkla in the stage The Dark School & the Twisted Fist.

In the aforementioned stage, Kung Fu Peach finds the Kung Fu Sparkla captured and guarded by the Kung Fu Master. After Kung Fu Peach seemingly defeats him, the Kung Fu Sparkla is free. The Kung Fu Master then gets up and battles both Peach and the Sparkla, but the two perform flying kicks at the same time and destroy the foe. The Kung Fu Sparkla and Peach then escape, and the Sparkla is later found on the fourth floor of the Sparkle Theater, admired by other Theets.

Before the final battle against Grape, all of the Sparklas, including the Kung Fu 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.
