Mark and Sparks are a pair of chimpanzees who are responsible for electrical maintenance in the Casino Night Zone. They were fans of Tails, claiming that he was second best to Sonic.


Mark and Sparks helped Tails to defeat a group of badniks that was terrorising the Casino Night Zone. They first disguised Tails as a badnik, allowing him to find the group's secret lair. Then they rigged two pylons to generate an electrical forcefield that destroyed the badniks as they flew between the pylons. Max Gamble, the casino owner, accused Mark and Sparks of causing a power failure (and costing him money), but the other residents of the Zone leaped to their defense and Gamble backed off.[1]


  • The names Mark and Sparks are derived from "Marks and Sparks", a popular nickname for the British supermarket Marks & Spencer. At one point in the story, Tails does refer to them as "Marks and Sparks". The name "Sparks" may also refer to their ingenuity with electronics.
