Mama Saws[1] are enemies in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its port. They are based on sawfish, as each Mama Saw displays a narrow spiky nose extension, resembling a saw – hence the species' name. They have flattened body structures, which are orange-colored, as well as striped with shades of the said color. Mama Saws swim from side to side, charging at the Kongs if they see them, damaging them if they come into contact. Mama Saws can be defeated by being Corkscrewed into from behind. Cranky Kong can also defeat them by swiping at them with his cane, which will additionally work against their front sides.
