Tac is a cat burglar enemy that can be found in Kirby Super Star and its remake. They can steal an ability from Kirby or his helper. When inhaled, they either return the stolen ability or, if holding nothing, will give Kirby the Copy ability.

Tacs also appear in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS as Smash Run enemies. Like in the original game, they can steal the player's stat boosts. Defeating them will make them drop the stat boots they have stolen. Its main attack will launch his hand at the player which does 1% (it cannot be reflected or absorbed, but it can be shielded and countered without losing stats). It will float away after some time.

Tac also appears in the Smash Tour mode in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Tac appears as a random event, carrying several stat boosts that are awarded to the player that runs into it.
