Kutlasses are small, yellow members of the Kremling Krew in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. 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 barrel or a tag-team throw.
In later levels of the game, a green version of Kutlass is encountered. These Kutlasses are faster to attack and can pull their swords out of the ground faster.
Kutlass appear in the following levels:
“Kutlass mail-ordered his razor-sharp swords from a TV offer. They turned out to be a little bigger than they looked on his small screen.”
