Sparkle is a grenade-shaped badnik created by Doctor Robotnik. Sparkle appear only at Carnival Night Zone in Sonic the Hedgehog 3. It is very small badnik that would usually reside in groups at open corridor sections.
Sparkle bots will teleport with a current of electricity from floor to ceiling, and stick to either one as it has no legs to move. As they finish teleporting, balls of electricity will be released from the shock wave into a 45 degree angle, trying to injure the player. If the player is fast, it is possible to defeat Sparkle with Spin Attack.
