Butch is an enemy that only appears in Kirby's Dream Land 2. Its general appearance is almost precisely the same as that of Axe Knight's, besides an altered color scheme and a lack of horns. Throughout the game, it is often seen carrying a large, double-bladed battle axe, with which it uses to attack Kirby. As well, it sports a small, cubic helmet, portraying a skull-like decal across the frontal plate. Its overall body profile is squat, and cylindrical around, with four small, ball-shaped limbs. Unlike its similar cousins Blade and Masher, Butch lacks a horn atop its helmet.
