Magnet Sparkies[1] (originally known as Sparkies[2]) are enemies in the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series that move along the edges of magnetized surfaces.

History[edit]

Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis[edit]

Sparkies first appear in Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis. They specifically appear on the Magnet Mania floor, where they slowly move clockwise from the red side of metal blocks with an "S" engraving. If a Magnetic Block is disabled from underneath it, the Sparky will vanish with it and another one will soon generate from the original block. They resemble the appearance of a Spark from Super Mario Bros. 2.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem![edit]

Magnet Sparkies reappear once more in Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem! They act much as they do in their previous appearance, except they move at a slightly faster speed and briefly retreat into their blocks (now known as Magnet Sparky Generators[1]) upon touching it rather than passing them by. They appear in Cosmic Adventure, and are a solid blue rather than flash yellow.
