This article is about the axe-wielding enemy from Kirby's Dream Land 2, and should not be confused with Axe Knight.

KDL2 Butch sprite.png 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.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Dream Land 2[edit]

In Kirby's Dream Land 2, Butch generally stays in one fixed spot, pacing back and forth slightly. It possesses a wide arsenal of attack possibilities at its disposal, including swinging its axe in a wide arc, hurling the weapon, possibly having it explode, or throwing it in a boomerang-like fashion. Butch typically appears in a small, enclosed rooms, where it guards a bag, containing one of Kirby's Animal Friends. It cannot be inhaled, or grant Kirby a Copy Ability, and must be defeated through the use of an Air Bullet, or other Copy Ability in order to successfully rescue the Friend.
