- “He's cuckoo for clobbering.”
- —Villain Vault
Cuckoo Clocker is a cuckoo bird who is one of the Life villains in Skylanders: Trap Team. He was summoned by Chef Pepper Jack in Phoenix Psanctuary to battle the Skylanders. Despite his impressive strength and power, he eventually succumbed to the Skylanders and was trapped.
As a trapped villain, Cuckoo Clocker's main attack is a slow but powerful overhead smash that does damage in a circular area in front of him. Holding the main attack button will make him charge up the smash - he has to remain stationary during this - increasing the damage exponentionally. His secondary attack emits sound waves that while do minimal damage, can stun enemies in a cone-shaped area for a short time.
During his bossfight, he only uses his overhead smash attack, though as he is bigger in size, the area of the smash is larger too. Jumping will help evade the smash zone.
