Spangle introducing himself to Mario and Luigi

Spangle is a small reddish Starkiss encountered in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. He carries a tiny electric guitar and a pair of sunglasses.

When Mario and Luigi travel to Gwarhar Lagoon to retrieve a piece of the Beanstar, they find it in possession of Hermie III, who was using it to decorate his shell. After defeating the giant hermit crab and getting the Beanstar piece, Hermie wanted a replacement for it. Spangle, meanwhile, wanted a stage to stand on. The two found each other and Hermie was so delighted that he gave the brothers the Soulful Bros. Badge.

His name is directly based off of the word spangle, which is the meaning for any small, sparkling object.

In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, he is depicted as a highly-saturated scarlet instead of the off-pink he was originally. Spangle appears in the Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser mode, in the level Spangle's Honey Pie. He asks Captain Goomba to save Starlow (who he refers to as his "honey pie") from Hermie III. After Starlow is freed, Spangle asks for a hug, causing her to knock him away. He later appears during Wendy's "cutie battle contest", where he is part of the group known as the Star Angels along with Starlow and two Starkisses. The group wins the contest after Wendy joins Captain Goomba's squad.
