— Figure description from Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Buzz-Saw Cutter is an Evolved Copy Ability based on Cutter that appears in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. Kirby now wields a buzz-saw attached to a mechanical power saw hat, which shoots the saw forward to drag enemies along and pass through them. Unlike the previous evolutions, these buzz-saw projectiles have the ability to ricochet off walls, bouncing off of them in a mirror-like projection.

The blueprint for Buzz-Saw Cutter can be found in Searching the Oasis, in a hidden Treasure Chest off the main path behind a fence. Buzz-Saw Cutter is required to play the Treasure Road stage Off the Wall! Ricochet Switches.


All attack names are taken from the Kirby and the Forgotten Land Perfect Support Guide unless otherwise stated. Applicable equivalent adapted English names from other games are listed in bold.

Move Button execution Description
Full-Metal Boomerang
B Kirby ejects a buzz-saw blade forwards. It can ricochet off walls multiple times, both when traveling outwards and when returning to Kirby, a technique called かべはんしゃ (Wall Reflection). If Kirby does not catch it, it will travel an indefinite horizontal distance, and can bounce off walls.
The Japanese name of Buzz-Saw Cutter is "Full-Metal Cutter". Kirby's buzz-saw can also grab certain items and bring them to Kirby on the return pass - this property is named Item Grab.
Halt and Charge Hold B By holding B, Kirby freezes the tossed Full-Metal Boomerang in midair and charges it, and Kirby can move freely while charging. There are 3 levels of charge:
  • Lv 1: The buzz-saw blade turns yellow, and has the same power as the uncharged Full-Metal Boomerang when released.
  • Lv 2: The buzz-saw blade turns red and bigger, and has increased power when released.
  • Lv 3: The buzz-saw blade turns flashing colors and even bigger, and has further increased power when released.

Name given in the Line 'Em Up! Toss and Return Treasure Road.

Return Attack Release B after Halt and Charge After releasing B (or over a certain time period at Lv 3) during Halt and Charge, the buzz-saw blade accelerates backwards and returns to Kirby, and its power is increased as it travels further. It can bounce off walls on the return trajectory.
Name given by Weapons-Shop Waddle Dee.
Cleaving Cutter

Cutter Hacking
Nonstop Cutter

Final Cutter
B after Nonstop Cutter Kirby leaps upwards and drops downwards, dragging the nearby enemy alongside and shooting out a Beam and a Full-Metal Boomerang on landing (which can be charged into a Halt and Charge by holding B).

Weapons-Shop Waddle Dee:
The Buzz-Saw Cutter's blade will bounce off walls. If you aim the bounces well, it can travel really far!
