Physical Appearance

A Stopwatch is a circular yellow watch with a button at the top. The hands on its face always point to 12:15.


Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble

Unlike in other games, Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble incorporates a timer; if it hits zero, Kirby is KO'd. To alleviate this, he can collect Stopwatches to increase his time. They are most frequently found on panels in the floor. These watches add three seconds to the timer. Stopwatches can also be dropped by defeated enemies; if the player flips the Game Boy Color to defeat the enemy then flips twice more, the item dropped changes to a watch that is worth 10 seconds.

Additionally, some orange Stopwatches are found inside Treasure Chests before bosses. They add 10, 20, or 30 seconds to the timer, depending on which one Kirby gets in the roulette.
