Ticktock[1] (ジュップン[2] Juppun?) is an enemy that appears in Knuckles' Chaotix. It is a mass-produced, clock-based Badnik model created by Dr. Robotnik.



The Ticktocks are based on pendulum clocks. They have red cylinder-shaped bodies with two blue toruses, red umbrella-like and green spirals above them. They also have yellow side-access panels with blue hour marks, green hour and minute hands with eyes. They also have yellow pendulum bobs with spikes that hang from chains.


The Ticktocks only appear in Amazing Arena. In gameplay, they drift back and forth within a small area, swinging their spiked pendulum. They makes no active attempt to attack the playable characters, and are only dangerous if the player bumps into them. Like many of the enemies in the game, Ticktocks are powered by synthesized Rings which they drop upon defeat.

Powers and abilities

The Ticktocks are capable of levitation. Also, they can use their pendulum bobs as spiked maces.


  • The Ticktocks' Japanese name "Juppun" is Japanese for "ten minutes".
