Tick is a recurring enemy debuting in Kirby's Dream Land 3. Its appearance is that of a white blob with a pair of big, round eyes, a smiling mouth and an extendable red spike atop its head. Its facial expression changes depending on what it is doing, being able to switch from friendly to malicious and back again.

Ticks walk around harmlessly at first, but stop and attempt to stab Kirby when he is above them. Inhaling and swallowing them awards Kirby the Needle ability.

Game appearances[edit]

Tick makes its debut appearance in this game. Here is where its basic look and behavior was established.

Tick performs a special role in the Jumping Sub-Game of Kirby's Dream Land 3. It will jab Kirby should he land on the wrong space, forcing the end of the game.

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards[edit]

Tick makes its debut appearance in 3-D in this game. It behaves largely the same as it did in the previous game, and still provides the Needle ability. Tick appears on the 48th Enemy Info Card.

A larger mid-boss variant of Tick appears in stage 1 of Aqua Star. This larger Tick does not do much, but smaller Ticks appear continuously down below which try to jab at Kirby in the meantime.
