Cuttacuttas[1] are mechanical crab toys that appear in Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis. They are only found in Tropical Island in Room 2-5, Room 2-8, and Room 2-9. They roll from left to right and can take elevators. If they see a Mini, they will extend one of their claws five times in an attempt to break the Mini, then move in the opposite direction as before. Cuttacuttas can be permanently defeated with either Hammers or a Fire Flower.

In the Construction Zone, Cuttacuttas can be used in the Tropical Island construction kit, Special Kit 1, Special Kit 2, and Special Kit 3.
