Kutlasses are small, green members of the Kremling Krew who appear in Donkey Kong Country 2. They do not reappear in Donkey Kong Land 2, unlike many enemies of Donkey Kong Country 2.

Kutlass' name is based on the cutlass, a kind of sword commonly used by pirates and the kind of sword a Kutlass uses. According to the game's credits, Kutlasses belong to the "Kremling Kuthroats" enemy class.


Kutlasses wear pirate hats with a large red feather in them, as well as a black vest. Kutlasses also carry twin swords which are much too big for them; the game's manual humourously says that they ordered them off of an infomercial and that they looked smaller on television. Though the swords are their strengths, capable of counter-attacking jumps, they can also be their weakness. They swing the swords downward with such force that they get stuck in the ground, leaving them open to attack. Even when their swords are up, they can still be defeated by a tag-team throw.

In later levels of the game a darker version of Kutlass is encountered. These Kutlasses are faster to attack and can pull their swords out of the ground faster. These are easily defeated with a barrel or an animal buddy (usually Squitter).

Kutlasses resemble Klanks (to the point of being identical). They also have a slight resemblance to Bazukas and Kopters.
