Bucket Men, also known as Dust Men, are enemies in Donkey Kong on the Game Boy, first appearing in Stage 1-3 in the Big-City and later in Stage 3-5 on the Ship. They usually stand still pretending to be regular Bins but when Mario tries to grab them they will start moving. If Mario touches the side of a Dust Man he will lose a life, though they can be stood on fully harmlessly. Mario cannot pick up a Dust Man. Bucket Men return with their current name in Mario vs. Donkey Kong, first appearing in Levels 1-4 and 1-6 of the Mario Toy Company and later in Levels 6-2 and 6-6 of Twilight City. They act the same as they did previously. They can be destroyed by hitting them with a Hammer.
