First appearance Donkey Kong (Game Boy) (1994)

Ottō is an enemy in Donkey Kong for the Game Boy. It makes its appearance in the Iceberg world, specifically Stage 7-2. Found underwater, it grabs Mario with its arms and latches on to his head. This inhibits Mario's ability to swim, enabling him only to walk and jump, and prevents him from pulling switches until Ottō releases him.
