Kirby Wiki

Butch is an enemy in Kirby's Dream Land 2. He is part of a clan of enemies, along with Masher and Blade, and appears in Iceberg 3. It cannot be inhaled.

Physical Appearance

Butch is a small knight with a black, spherical body. He wears purple armor that covers his Kirby-like hands and feet. In his right hand, he carries a simple handaxe that has an orange, likely wooden, shaft.


Kirby's Dream Land 2

Butch walks back and forth slowly. When he sees Kirby, however, he attacks by throwing his axe at him. Butch can throw his axe in two different ways: he can throw it in a straight line so that it boomerangs back to him, or he can throw it in an upwards arc that does not return to him, forcing him to pull out a new axe. If Butch throws the axe in a straight line but fails to catch it, the axe will explode in mid-flight, damaging Kirby if he is within the fairly large radius. Neither Butch nor his axe can be inhaled, so Kirby must either use a Copy Ability or his Air Gun to defeat Butch.


Butch's name comes from the word butcher, which means "to chop savagely."


  • Butch bears a striking resemblance to Axe Knight, in both physical appearance and attack pattern.
