―Cat O'Clock's final words before his initial defeat.[src]

"Surprise!"
―Cat O'Clock upon being gigantified.[src]

"Meooooooow! My whole plan has been an utter catastrophe!"
―Cat O'Clock's final words before his death.[src]

Cat O'Clock was a cyborg cat/watch-themed monster who served as the main antagonist of the episode "The Adventures of Redbot".

History

Cat O'Clock is first seen in Galvanax's ship when he accompanies him to make Cosmo Royale and some Kudabots get back to work as they are reading Redbot's blog. Cosmo then mentions a book signing which gives Cat O'clock an idea and he freezes Cosmo with the Time Remote, which gives Galvanax the idea to freeze the Ninja Steel Rangers and steal their Ninja Power Stars. Cat O'Clock witnesses all six of the Rangers fighting off an army of Basherbots in front of a truck that contains Redbot's books which gives him the idea to freeze the people by manipulating Redbot's books. He goes to a high school and freezes both the people and all six of the Rangers with the Time Remote but it does not freeze Redbot for he is a robot and not a human, much to Cat O'clock's shock. The monster attempts to snatch the Ranger's Ninja Power Stars but gets scared off by Hayley's dog Kody. After the Rangers are freed thanks to Redbot, they battle Cat O'clock as he summons an army of Kudabots. During the battle, he accidentally reveals the secret that can remove the freeze spell from the people and gets held down by the Rangers with the Element Star Ninja Forest Attack and the Ninja Battle Morpher Claw Shred, allowing Hayley to strike Cat O'clock in the chest with the Arrow Blast. Now angered, Cat O'Clock charges only to be destroyed by Brody and Hayley's Red and White Ninja Strike Steel Slash Final Attack.

He is then gigantified by Cosmo so the Rangers summon the Ninja Steel Zords to battle Cat O'Clock. He is scared off by the Kodiak Zord due to it being a dog and bitten in the back before Brody summons the Rumble Tusk Zord to ambush him with its Gust Attack. They then combine to form the Rumble Tusk Ninja Steel Megazord before Levi joins them as Cat O'Clock fires an eye laser for which the Megazord deflects and counters it with the Mega Gust, knocking him down. With the Rumble Tusk Ninja Steel Megazord's Double Axe Final Attack, Cat O'clock is destroyed for good and can only bemoan his complete failure of a plan before being obliteraed.

Legacy

It is later revealed that Cleocatra was his cousin and wishes to avenge him. She almost completely copies his plan but Sarah and Redbot are able to undo her plans and Brody destroys her. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Past, Presents, and Future

Personality

Cat O'clock was a sneaky feline with a constant habit of making cat puns and even meowed every time he laughed. He was also cowardly whenever he was outnumbered and had an intense fear of dogs.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Chronokinesis: Through the watch on his chest, Cat O'Clock could manipulate the time of a target's movements either by rewinding or fast forward. If his chest watch gets damaged, he will not be able to use this power.
  • Eye Laser: Cat O'clock could fire light blue colored energy lasers from his eyes.

Abilities

  • Kudabot Summoning: Cat O'Clock could summon an army of Kudabots to aid him in battle.

Weaknessess

  • Robots-Cat O'Clock's time freezing abilities were unable to affect Redbot due to him being a robot.
  • Destroyed Watch-If Cat O-Clock's chest watch was destroyed, his time freezing powers were useless and anyone he froze in time would be freed.
  • Low Intelligence: Cat O'Clock was not very smart as seen when he inadvertently stated in front of the Rangers loudly that the source of his time powers was the watch on his chest.
  • Cynophobia-Cat O'Clock had a deep and intense fear of dogs and would actively try and avoid them as much as he could.

Arsenal

  • Metal Claws: Being a cat-themed monster, Cat O'clock possessed metal clawed hands for combat.
  • Time Remote: Cat O'clock possessed a remote control that can control time.
    • Time Object Manipulation: Cat O'clock's device could fire a light blue colored lightning beam to manipulate the objects, so that whenever they are touched by the victims or get hit by the small red-orange colored energy waves that are released by Cat O'clock's Time Remote, they are frozen in place and time.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

  • Cat O'clock is voiced by Charles McDermott, who also voiced Bigs from Power Rangers Megaforce.
    • Cat O'clock's voice was identical to Bigs's voice.

Design

  • Cat O'Clock's design was a combination of a tabby cat and a digital watch.
    • Via his Sentai Counterpart, Cat O'Clock was based upon the Nekomata from Japanese mythology. They are a kind of cat yōkai described in Chinese and then Japanese folklore, classical kaidan, essays, etc. There are two very different types: those that live in the mountains and domestic cats that have grown old and transformed into yōkai. Nekomata are often confused with bakeneko.
        • Cat O'Clock's armor and watch were red in US footage whereas they were orange in Ninninger footage. The orange was also used on his action figure.

Etymology

  • His name was a pun on cat and o'clock, the measurement of time on a standard wall clock.

Notes

  • Cat O'Clock was defeated three times in Ninninger with the first being at Hayley's hands but was cut for both time and episode pacing since Cat O'Clock appeared in two Ninninger episodes.
  • The time on Cat O'clock clock's chest, Sunday 7:30 am, was the Super Sentai time slot on TV Asahi in Japan when Cat O'clock's counterpart made his appearance in Ninninger.
