KSSGB Tic tac Jr sprite.png Tick-Tock Jr. (originally referred to as Tic tac Jr.[1]) is a character in both versions of Kirby's Star Stacker. He appears in the Time Attack mode of the games.


Tick-Tock Jr., just like Mr. Tick-Tock, is a sentient alarm clock. He has two white, floating hands, red feet and two golden bells atop his head. However, Tick-Tock Jr. has a more relaxed expression, rather than an angry one like Mr. Tick-Tock. Notably, he lacked feet in the Game Boy version of Kirby's Star Stacker.


Tick-Tock Jr., unlike his Mid-Boss counterpart, is very relaxed and sleepy, as shown by his idle animations and artwork. When pausing the game, Tick-Tock Jr. will even sleep, showing his somnolent nature. However he may also get angry at times despite his more lax personality, as shown when time runs low and he starts ringing.
