— In-game quote

Cutter Mode is one of the Robobot Armor modes. It replaces the hands on Kirby's mech with saw blades, which can be spun and fired, then return like boomerangs. Unlike the regular Cutter ability, this mode is capable of sawing through more obstacles, cutting chains and large logs, and defeating otherwise indestructible enemies.
