— Figure description segment from Kirby and the Forgotten Land
Time Crash is an Evolved Copy Ability based on Crash that appears in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. While equipped with this ability, Kirby gains a golden top hat with a shining hourglass inset and a timer dial on the front. When Kirby uses this ability, it allows him to create an explosion that deals large amounts of damage to nearby enemies and slows time down significantly for a short moment, creating a sepia-tone effect. During this slowdown effect, Kirby can run into other enemies to damage them in a manner similar to Invincible Candy, extending the duration of the slowdown with each new enemy affected (or when defeating an enemy that was previously hit but not defeated). This makes it so that Kirby cannot be hurt by collision with normal enemies, Mid-Bosses, or Bosses, but he can still take damage from invincible enemies or projectiles, as well as other hazards. As the slowdown effect wears off, time begins to move faster and the area of the sepia filter shrinks towards Kirby until it vanishes completely, and Kirby loses the ability. If the player exits the stage before the effect wears off, the ability will be retained, and can be used again upon re-entering.
The Blueprint for Time Crash can be obtained in Invasion at the House of Horrors in Wondaria Remains. After obtaining the ability, it can only be powered-up once. Time Crash is necessary to play and complete the Treasure Road stage Stop Time! Slow-World Scramble, which is marked with three stars of difficulty.
