Ticksquawks are stopwatch enemies that appear in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. Their bodies have yellow lining and a red stopwatch hand and switch. In the field, Ticksquawks move around aimlessly if not disturbed, but will frantically rush about upon sighting Mario and Dreamy Luigi for a short amount of time.
A Ticksquawk can also attack by approaching Mario and initiating its timer, the Ticksquawk briefly opening itself upon the red stopwatch hand on it making a full rotation around its face. Upon it opening, a bluebird will fly out at Mario, who must jump over it in order to avoid taking damage from it; defeating the bluebird will award Mario a Coin. The Ticksquawk may perform this attack but have a white shutter cover its face instead, preventing Mario from visually being able to tell when the Ticksquawk will open itself and forcing the player to tell through sound-related means.
A Ticksquawk may also start flashing red and advance towards Mario, dashing around him five times in a square formation with short pauses in between. Mario must hammer the Ticksquawk as it bursts past him in order to avoid taking damage, counter-attack the Ticksquawk and halt its oncoming explosion as a result. If Mario fails to do this, the Ticksquawk will explode, defeating itself and damaging Mario in the process.
