 Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
In this installment, Kutlasses resemble the average stereotypical pirate in the form of a miniature crocodile sporting a weapon set that appears far too much for it's overall bodily frame. Game-wise, this pair of twin swords turn out to be this enemy's ultimate weakness. It is like this because after every swing, the force is so heavy that the Kutlass always ends up getting their weapon stuck in the ground, allowing the perfect opportunity to be taken down. The explanation for this enemy's comical weapon is explained in the game's manual detailing that the Kutlass ordered the swords off of a TV shopping channel and had no idea they'd turn out to be so large. The slower, tamer version of the Kutlass is later replaced as further levels are proceeded through with a much quicker version who doesn't hesitate as much as the original Kutlasses do when successfully pulling their stuck swords out of the ground.
 Name Origin
This enemy's name is derived from the term "cutlass", a type of sword that were commonly used by pirates.
