 This box: view  talk  edit 

Cutter is a Copy Ability that grants Kirby the ability to throw blade boomerangs as projectiles, or strike enemies up close with them. Typically, this ability gives Kirby a yellow cap with the blade embedded in the top, though other appearances of the ability may leave Kirby largely unchanged until he uses it, with the most noteworthy outlier example being in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (where Kirby throws a piece of himself as the boomerang). Using this ability, Kirby can slice ropes and foliage from a distance by steering his projectiles, or get up close and defeat foes with the devastating Final Cutter attack.

Cutter first appeared in Kirby's Adventure, making it among the oldest Copy Abilities in the entire series. Since then, it has appeared as an ability in 17 subsequent games, tying Parasol as the most ubiquitous ability in the whole series. Its primary provider is the yellow suit of armor known as Sir Kibble, but many other creatures provide this ability, including Poppy Bros. Jr. with boomerangs, Kapar, the Mid-Boss Kibble Blade, and the projectiles thrown out by Soul-form bosses that use Shooter Cutter as an attack.

Characteristics[edit]

Cutter is among the oldest and most ubiquitous Copy Abilities in the Kirby series, first appearing in Kirby's Adventure and reappearing in every subsequent main-series title, along with several spin-offs. In its most basic form, it gives Kirby the ability to throw bladed boomerang projectiles that travel a short distance in front of him before flying back. While the range forward is rather limited, if Kirby gets out of the way of his boomerang as it returns, it will fly past him and keep traveling until it leaves the screen or hits something. As such, it is often useful for Kirby to use this ability while facing away from his target in order to keep a safer distance.

Various subsequent Kirby games give the Cutter ability more utility. There are several stage devices such as ropes and foliage which can be sliced using Cutter, giving the ability utility outside of simply battling foes. Most games also allow Kirby to steer his boomerang after throwing it, allowing him to reach otherwise difficult spots with his attacks. Games that follow Kirby Super Star's example add a large number of melee attacks to Cutter, allowing Kirby to fight up close with rapid swings of his cutter blade, finishing with the iconic Final Cutter technique. Main-series titles starting with Kirby: Squeak Squad allow Kirby to throw more powerful Cutter blades that pass through their targets (usually after charging up the attack). Lastly, Cutter is readily fused with other elements, producing powerful combinations such as those seen in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards and Kirby Star Allies.

The Cutter Ability's most recognizable provider is the yellow suit of armor called Sir Kibble, who appears in nearly every game that Cutter is featured in. Besides him, there are many more enemies that provide the ability, and it can also be absorbed from the attacks of certain bosses, with the most notable example being the Shooter Cutter projectiles.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Adventure / Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land[edit]

Cutter's first appearance is in Kirby's Adventure, making it among the oldest abilities in the series. With this ability, Kirby can throw up to 3 cutter blades at a time, which return like boomerangs. If Kirby jumps out of the way of his returning cutter, it will fly past him and off the screen, making this ability useful as a long-range attack from behind. Kirby takes on an orange body color for this ability, similar to many others.

Cutter also returns in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, where Kirby has his hat from Kirby Super Star.

Kirby's Dream Land 2[edit]

Cutter appears again in Kirby's Dream Land 2. When by himself, Cutter Kirby's attacks function the same as in Kirby's Adventure. However, the attack changes character when paired up with Rick, Kine, or Coo, as follows:

Throughout Kirby's Dream Land 2, there are specific blocks which can be broken only with the Cutter ability. They are marked with a straight line across them.

Kirby Super Star / Kirby Super Star Ultra[edit]

Cutter returns in Kirby Super Star and its remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra, with an expanded move-set that for the first time introduces the Final Cutter technique, along with other close-range attacks. In addition to enemies like Sir Kibble, Kirby can also obtain the Cutter ability through Copy Essences and Copy Essences Deluxe. Kirby Super Star introduced the now-familiar yellow cap with a blade on top for Kirby whenever he has this ability. Kirby can also use up his ability to conjure Sir Kibble as a helper.

Cutter appears as an ability in Kirby's Dream Land 3. When by himself, Cutter Kirby's attacks function identically to how they do in Kirby's Adventure. However, the attack changes character when paired up with one of the six Animal Friends, as follows:

Throughout Kirby's Dream Land 3, there are specific blocks which can be broken only with the Cutter ability. They are marked with the Cutter icon on them.

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards[edit]

Kirby tossing a piece of himself as the cutter blade in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

Cutter returns as a Copy Ability in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. Here, the ability follows the same simple design philosophy as other abilities in the game, giving Kirby only one attack. However, unlike in preceding games, the ability functions a little differently here. Instead of throwing distinct blade boomerangs at his foes, Kirby throws a portion of his body as the blade, splitting himself into two distinct objects. The blade has his face on it and flies at moderate speed forward, then comes back to the rest of his body, which has for the moment been reduced to a thin stub with feet only able to walk around and jump once. Once the two pieces make contact again, Kirby returns to his normal self, which effectively means that Kirby can only throw out one blade at a time, and has limited movement options while the blade is out. Unlike cutter blades in other games, this one will home back in towards the rest of Kirby once it is done flying forward, meaning that Kirby's stub body can guide the blade on its return trip to adjust its trajectory. If the body takes damage while the blade is out, Kirby will immediately snap back to normal as the blade disappears.

Like with the other abilities in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Cutter can be combined with itself or with another ability to create Power Combos. Doubling up on Cutter allows Kirby to throw a larger spike-covered blade, though with the same limitations as before. Combinations with other abilities produce a wide array of powers, including creating a large flaming sword, throwing explosive ninja stars, and even shaping himself into stone sculptures of his Animal Friends.

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror / Kirby: Squeak Squad[edit]

Cutter Kirby cutting a rope holding up a Sparky in Kirby: Squeak Squad

Cutter returns in both Kirby & The Amazing Mirror and Kirby: Squeak Squad, acting much as it did in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land and once again provided by Sir Kibble. Unlike in older games, the cutter blade can be thrown farther by holding B, and the angle of the cutter blade can be curved vertically with the + Control Pad. Notably, the Final Cutter technique appears in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, but it is not performable using Cutter, instead being attached to Smash, Sword, and Master.

In Kirby: Squeak Squad, an Ability Scroll can be obtained for Cutter which increases the size of the cutter blade and allows it to pass through multiple targets.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land / Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe[edit]

Cutter Kirby using the Cutter Dash technique to slice a rope in Kirby's Return to Dream Land

The Cutter Copy Ability also appears in Kirby's Return to Dream Land and its remake, Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe. Kirby's Cutter ability is fairly similar in appearance and functionality to how it was in Kirby Super Star, though with the added ability to steer and charge the Cutter blades, much like in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror and Kirby: Squeak Squad respectively. The Cutter ability is used often to cut ropes, with one Energy Sphere in particular requiring use of the Cutter Boomerang to access.

Cutter is once again provided mainly by Sir Kibble, though other sources include the new enemy Jackle and the new Mid-Boss Kibble Blade.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe[edit]

Cutter returns in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, largely unchanged from its appearance in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. Like in most titles, it is most easily obtained by swallowing Sir Kibble. However, it can also be obtained by swallowing Flowery Woods's spinning flowers. It also features as one of the abilities in Kirby Fighters.

Cutter also appears as two collectible Keychains, one using a sprite from Kirby's Dream Land 2, and another with a sprite from Kirby Super Star Ultra.

Kirby Fighters Deluxe[edit]

Cutter is one of the selectable Copy Abilities which can be used in this game. Its move-set is largely unchanged from its appearance in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. Upon clearing Single Player mode with the ability once, a Rare Hat that resembles Sir Kibble's helmet is unlocked.

Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

Kirby Battle Royale[edit]

Ah, the Cutter ability. Those slashes sure are satisfying. There's nothing like a good charge session...and a Hyper Cutter!
— Knuckle Joe's comment in Kirby Battle Royale

Cutter is one of the first abilities available in Kirby Battle Royale, and is also available along with Sword and Beetle in the Demo version. It is distinguished from the other abilities by its blade projectiles being able to bounce off of walls and other barriers.

There are three alternate pieces of Headgear for the Cutter ability. These are the "Sir Kibble Helmet", the "Mohawk", and the "Knight Helmet".

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

By combining Cutter with the Bluster Power Effect, Sir Kibble can throw a boomerang that travels upward to clear away some foliage to solve a puzzle in Kirby Star Allies.

Cutter appears again in Kirby Star Allies, along with Sir Kibble who can utilize its full moveset when recruited as a Friend. In this game, Cutter Kirby has access to all of the same moves as he had in the preceding main-series titles. In addition to its standard attributes, however, Cutter can be enhanced using one of the five Power Effects, adding elemental power to the boomerangs and in some cases, altering their trajectories.

Kirby Fighters 2[edit]

Cutter returns in Kirby Fighters 2 as a selectable ability for Kirby. It is unlocked after attaining a Fighters Rank of 24. Its move-set is largely the same as in previous games, though damage values have been adjusted. Two Rare Hats exist for Cutter Kirby in this game: the first is the Sir Kibble Helmet from Kirby Fighters Deluxe, and the second is the Punk Mohawk, which is similar to the Mohawk costume in Kirby Battle Royale.

For more precise competitive-oriented information on the Cutter ability in Kirby Fighters 2, see Mizuumi Wiki's page.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land[edit]

Kirby throwing a cutter boomerang to catch some items in Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Cutter returns in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. Here, Kirby can use the blade to pick up items from afar and return them to him, making it function similarly to the boomerang in The Legend of Zelda series. Unlike in other games in the Kirby series, Cutter's boomerangs are oriented laterally rather than vertically. During his adventures, Kirby can find Blueprints, which can be taken to Waddle Dee's Weapons Shop to evolve the Cutter ability into new forms. Cutter can first be evolved into Chakram Cutter, allowing Kirby to wield a pair of chakrams which deal more damage and tend to curve in a direction when returning, and then into Buzz-Saw Cutter, allowing Kirby to throw large spinning buzz saws that ricochet off walls and drag enemies with them.

This ability is one of four accessible in the game's demo. It automatically becomes its evolved form once the three available stages are complete, but this can be reverted back to the original ability if the player so desires.

Moveset[edit]

The following is Cutter's moveset in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. All attack names are conjectural:

Cutter moveset in Kirby and the Forgotten Land 
Move Button execution Description
Cutter Boomerang B Kirby tosses a bladed boomerang forwards. After a short distance the blade accelerates backwards and returns to Kirby; if Kirby does not catch it, it will travel an indefinite distance horizontally. Unlike in previous titles, this basic Cutter Boomerang can pierce through enemies, potentially hitting them more than once.
Hyper Boomerang Hold B and release By holding B, Kirby freezes the tossed Cutter Boomerang in midair and charges it, and Kirby can move freely while charging. There are 3 levels of charge:
  • Lv 1: The Hyper Boomerang turns yellow, and has the same power as the uncharged Cutter Boomerang when released.
  • Lv 2: The Hyper Boomerang turns red and bigger, and has increased power when released.
  • Lv 3: The Hyper Boomerang turns flashing colors and even bigger, and has further increased power when released.

After releasing B (or over a certain time period at Lv 3), the Hyper Boomerang accelerates backwards and returns to Kirby, and its power is increased as it travels further.

Cleaving Cutter B near an enemy Kirby takes a blade and swipes it forwards.
Final Cutter B + B after Cleaving Cutter After a series of swipes, Kirby leaps upwards and drops downwards, dragging the nearby enemy alongside and shooting out a Beam and a Cutter Boomerang on landing (which can be charged into a Hyper Boomerang by holding B).

Kirby's Dream Buffet[edit]

Cutter does not appear as an ability in Kirby's Dream Buffet. However, Cutter Kirby's likeness can be seen on a Character Treat, depicting his sprite from Kirby's Dream Land 2.

Super Smash Bros. Series[edit]

Main article: Final Cutter

In the Super Smash Bros series, Final Cutter is Kirby's Up Special Move in all installments. It's useful for recovering, but causes Kirby to plummet off-stage if he misses the ledge. It also shoots out a projectile if Kirby lands on the ground which can lightly knock back opponents. If opponents are hit during the downswing of the blade, they will be sent flying downward at a fixed velocity.

— Meta Knight describing Cutter Kirby in The Fofa Factor

In the anime series Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, the Cutter ability makes its first appearance in The Fofa Factor, when Kirby obtains it from the monster Slice n' Splice. The ability functions largely the same in the anime as it does in the games, though its ability to cleave through objects is highly exaggerated.

Unlike many of the other abilities, Cutter has a limited amount of screen time. In The Flower Plot, Kirby uses the blade to quickly fell Lovely in a slice done off-camera. In War of the Woods, Kirby throws a quick Hyper Cutter boomerang to split the Royal Racecar in half, thus temporarily foiling King Dedede and Escargoon.

In the Kirby novel series[edit]

Kirby gains the Cutter ability in Kirby and the Dangerous Gourmet Mansion?!

In the Kirby novel series, the Cutter ability appears in Kirby and the Dangerous Gourmet Mansion?!, where Kirby obtains it from Sir Kibble. With this Copy Ability, Kirby only uses the Cutter Boomerang move to cut down a large tree.

In Kirby and the Dangerous Gourmet Mansion?!, when Kirby, King Dedede, and Meta Knight are on their quest to save the kidnapped Mrs. Parfaitski, they come across a small ravine. The three notice a bridge, and attempt to cross it. Before they can, a sharp blade suddenly flies out, and cuts the rope holding the suspension bridge, causing it to fall into the ravine. Sir Kibble reveals himself, and attempts to attack the group with more of his boomerang-like blades. Kirby drops the Wheel ability he previously had, which releases Wheelie. Kirby then inhales Sir Kibble to get the Cutter ability. Kirby throws the blade on his head at the tallest, thickest tree he could find to cut it down. The tree falls down and reaches the other side of the ravine, allowing the group to use it as a bridge. Wheelie is forced to lead the way. When the group reaches a cave, Wheelie requests that Kirby releases Sir Kibble so they can explain why they had kidnapped Mrs. Parfaitski. Kirby complies, and drops his Cutter ability to release a dazed and angered Sir Kibble.
