|Wish||Get the key from the mask, to remove it.|
Dollface grew up in a dysfunctional family. She had no siblings and her father and mother worked fifteen hours a day. At the age of 10, her home life grew even worse when her mother unexpectedly passed away. For the many years that followed, Dollface would occasionally hear her father mumble "It's all your fault..."
Now, years later, Dollface has a new job with a man who, oddly enough, reminds her of her father...

1. My boss used to buy spare parts from this junkyard. It's where he found the pieces of my mask.
2. They say this contest kills innocent people. I don't care anymore. After what happened to me, no one is innocent.
3. 7 years in this mask. Has my face changed? The mask never gives. It crushes my face. Am I deformed by now?
4. Minion won last year's contest. But I'm not afraid of him. I just gotta find a way past his force field & I win.
5. You know, when I think about it, I wonder if my boss wanted me to die? Is it bad to think such things?
6. This battleground is small and full of enemies. I gotta keep moving if I want to survive this.
7. It's so pretty up here. It's been so long since I've seen anything pretty. I wish I didn't have to keep fighting...
8. I'm sorry officer, I don't want to kill you. I like the police. But I'm so tired of being locked up...
According to her profile, it states that Dollface's mask is starting to go small on her growing head, even to a point where it's going to cause some moderate brain damage.
In this incarnation, Dollface is an aspiring supermodel named Krista Sparks (no relation to Calypso's daughter from previous games). She is beautiful, talented, and driven to succeed, but also paranoid, vain, and obsessed with becoming the greatest supermodel in the world. Consequently, she is willing to do anything necessary to ensure her success, including sabotaging and outright killing her competition.
However, her life changed when she was involved in a vicious car crash, badly damaging her face. After six months and eleven surgeries, her wounds were almost fully healed, save for a thin scar on her upper lip. Despite being nearly invisible except at an extremely close distance, Krista's perfectionist mind saw it as a rotting, maggot-infested mess. When her doctor recommended that she see a therapist, she attacked and decapitated him with a hacksaw, accusing him of being in league with the other models.
Desperate to fix her face, Krista visited the enigmatic Dr. Ospylac, a diminutive, half-blind man with a reputation for turning even the most repulsive women into superstars. He put a white mask on her face, locking it with seemingly magical binding, and told her to return in six days. However, when Krista returned to have the mask removed, the doctor had disappeared without a trace. Without Dr. Ospylac, the mask was impossible to remove; even shooting it point-blank with a shotgun only caused minor charring and thin cracks.
Out of options, Krista takes on the name "Dollface", assembled a gang of like-minded women, and enters the Twisted Metal contest, hoping to remove the mask with her victory wish. Along the way, she clashes with The Clowns, a gang fanatically devoted to the memory of their late leader, Sweet Tooth. This culminates with Dollface destroying Sweet Tooth's Carnival of Carnage, a titanic mobile fortress built in honor of the mad clown.
As she prepares to meet Calypso, Dollface begins rethinking her wish. Although she enters to have the mask removed, there is no telling if it had done its job and repaired her "horrible" deformity; furthermore, she will be back where she started, struggling to stand out from the crowd of other models. Deciding that she'd "rather be famous than free", Krista wishes to be on the world's largest runway, giving her the chance she needs to shine.
When Calypso grants her wish, Dollface finds herself transported to an area full of flashy lights. Her joy is short-lived as the lights fade away, revealing that she is on an airport runway. With an airplane coming in to land, she turns to flee, cursing Calypso's name. Before she can get away, her boot heel breaks, causing her to fall. As Calypso darkly quips that she really does shine, Krista is crushed by the airplane's landing gear.
In a final twist of irony, her mask is knocked free by the impact of the plane on her back. It would later come into Calypso's possession, being displayed in his trophy case with items from many other previous contestants.

Wish: Remove the mask and become a supermodel; later changes to being on the world's largest runway.
- According to the San Diego ComicCon 2010 Twisted Metal panel, Dollface's last name is Sparks.
- Despite her actions in Twisted Metal: Black, Dollface has certain anti-villain traits. She doesn't believe in hurting the weak or in senseless killing, and is the only character in the game that believes being in the asylum would keep her from hurting anyone or anything, but would be considered the vengeful villain when it comes to discrimination/abuse, most notably toward Mr. Kreel. In the 2012 Twisted Metal game however, Dollface is a desperate model willing to do anything for fame, even if she has to murder her competition.
- She is the only main female character in Twisted Metal (2012).
- In Twisted Metal: Black and Twisted Metal (2012), Dollface is not the same person. Dollface in Twisted Metal: Black worked for Mr. Kreel, while in Twisted Metal (2012), she is a fashion model.
- In Twisted Metal: Black, since her first real job was after college (most people finish college at age 22), and since it's been seven years since the accident, she is at least 29 years old.
- A producer of 3D and Flash animation created a series of six original Flash "Websiodes" to promote the release of Twisted Metal: Black. One was made for Dollface.
- In her middle cutscene of Twisted Metal: Black, it is shown that Mr. Kreel is working on Sweet Tooth's mask, perhaps alluding to his own evil characteristics.
- In Twisted Metal (2012), Dollface dies when her boot heel breaks, leaving her unable to dodge the incoming plane. Ironically, this mirrors a scene in her opening movie, where she sabotages a competing model by cutting the heel of her shoe, causing her to fall during her walk on the runway.
- In Twisted Metal (2012), the name of the doctor who gave her the Dollface mask, Dr. Opsylac, spells Calypso backwards, implying that he could've arranged her downfall from the start. If the car that Mr. Grimm's father's truck crashes into is her car (see the Mr. Grimm page), then it would imply that Calypso had been arranging her downfall for a number of years.
- Dollface appears twice in Playstation All Stars: Battle Royale, featuring in the "Columbia" stage as an NPC who interacts with the players and as an unlockable "Minion."
- In Twisted Metal (2012), it is implied that she managed to survive and lost her legs, because the scene immediately after the mask coming off, shows her crawling away from plane with blood soaking from her waist. However, she likely bled to death, since she essentially had no lower half.
- Calypso almost always refers to Dollface by her real name, while he calls Needles and Mr. Grimm by their nicknames (although Mr. Grimm technically is his real name.)
- While in the disguise of Dr. Ospylac, Calypso gives Dollface a kiss.
- Dollface could be Sweet Tooth's interpretation of how mysterious Mr. Ash is (or at least her face).
- It is unknown how Krista received Darkside.
