The first phases of the Final Battle with King Gedol show him use lightning, meteors, and a Body Swap spell; making Sparkster and Gedol switch bodies and allowing you to play as a pallette swapped Gedol to fight a green and pink Sparkster. However, this is not possible with Gold Sparkster. A unique gimmick, but somewhat useless since what damage you do to Gedol in Sparkster's body, doesn't count and he can't be defeated until you switch bodies again using the A button (default controls) as Gedol. After Gedol is defeated, he vanishes by sinking into the floor. After a few moments, lightning strikes the ground and a gigantic form of Gedol's head will appear in the background, starting the second main phase of the Final Battle.
The second phase has Gedol shooting lasers out his eyes and smashing the ground with his fists as forms of attack. Sparkster can only damage Gedol by hitting the jewel on Gedol's head. However, the jewel is only available for a few seconds before hiding behind a patch of skin, and will come out every so often. After Sparkster defeats Gedol, his power will decrease causing him to supposedly spaz for a moment before Sparkster charges up his rocket pack, take out his sword and slice Gedol's head in half in a devastating corkscrew attack with a spin attack on the way down. Princess Cherry is released from the clutches of Gedol, and Sparkster and Cherry exit the castle just in time before it collapses.
