Mr. Sparkles, WarioWare Gold

Mr. Sparkles is a character that first appears in WarioWare Gold. He is a bodybuilder who regularly weightlifts his signature frying pans, and is notable for, besides his build, his enthusiasm and constant smiling.

Mr. Sparkles (accompanied by two Alien Bunnies) first appears on a television program which catches 5-Volt's attention. He advertises a set of frying pans, but advises customers not to buy them until they get into shape, as the pans are allegedly heavy. Out of boredom, 5-Volt decides to partake in the bodybuilding exercise herself, helping her retrieve 9-Volt's dropped Nintendo 3DS later on.

Mr. Sparkles appears as a deception in the Sneaky Gamer mode of the game, lifting 9-Volt's television rack in place of 5-Volt to reveal himself, and may also appear on TV when it is on.

In WarioWare: Move It!, Mr. Sparkles, now dressed in a toga, appears as the host of Megagame Muscles, singing the song that plays during the mode.[1]
