Cutfish is a spiky fish enemy from Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. It takes the general shape of a lime green pill with a single button eye, a thin flagellum-like tail and spikes all along the circumference of its body. Cutfish will attempt to chase Kirby down in Dolphin Metamortex sections and will damage him on contact. When in this Dolphin form, Kirby can defeat Cutfish using the surge attack. A larger variation exists in the Sub-Game Slash & Bead in Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. When Meta Knight attacks, it continuously splits into smaller versions of itself until it is finally defeated.


Cutfish can be found in the Fossil Reef stage. It can also be found in Stage 3 of Slash & Bead.
