— Figure description from Kirby and the Forgotten Land
Chakram Cutter is an Evolved Copy Ability based on Cutter that appears in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. It looks and behaves largely the same as Cutter, but with it, in addition to generally dealing more damage and throwing his blades in quicker succession, Kirby now wields a pair of chakrams that he can throw individually, or both simultaneously, which will curve back towards him. In terms of appearance, its hat most notably now allows for two blades to slide into it on the sides, and its eyes appear aggravated. Unlike most Evolved Copy Abilities, there is no Blueprint to be found for Chakram Cutter. Instead, once Waddle Dee's Weapons Shop is built in Waddle Dee Town, Weapons-Shop Waddle Dee allows Kirby to evolve into it right away, along with Volcano Fire, by giving him enough Rare Stones and Star Coins to do so if he pleases.
In Everbay Coast, Chakram Cutter is required to enter the Fling, Twirl, Return! Hit the Switches Treasure Road stage. It is marked by two stars of difficulty and has Kirby make use of his curving chakram blades to hit switches.
The following is Chakram Cutter's moveset in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. 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.
|Chakram Cutter moveset|
|B||Kirby tosses a chakram forwards. After a short distance, the blade accelerates outwards and then returns to Kirby; if Kirby does not catch it, it will travel an indefinite distance horizontally. Unlike in previous titles, this basic Chakram Boomerang can pierce through enemies, potentially hitting them more than once. If the B button is pressed twice in sequence, Kirby throws two chakrams in a row.|
Halt and Charge
|Hold B||By holding B, Kirby freezes the tossed chakram (or chakrams if two were tossed) in midair and charges it, and Kirby can move freely while charging. There are three levels of charge:
|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 chakram accelerates outwards and then returns to Kirby, and its power is increased as it travels further.|
Name given by Weapons-Shop Waddle Dee.
|B near an enemy||Kirby takes a blade and swipes it forwards.|
|B after Cleaving Cutter||Kirby repeatedly strikes an enemy with his blade.|
|B after Nonstop Cutter||Kirby leaps upwards and drops downwards, dragging the nearby enemy alongside and shooting out two beams and two Chakram Boomerangs on landing (which can be charged into a Halt and Charge by holding B).|

Weapons-Shop Waddle Dee:
- The way Chakram Cutter attacks via throwing from the hat is similar to the Zero Sluggers of Ultraman Zero, son of Ultraseven from the Ultraman series (whereas the base Cutter ability resembles Ultraseven's Eye Slugger).
