Kid Icarus: Uprising

Being one of the most simplistic enemies in the game, the Skuttler only has one strategy: to attack its opponents using the bone it wields. It has two techniques for achieving this—it may strike at its foes vertically, or strike them horizontally. However, they topple over themselves when they use the latter technique, leaving them vulnerable.

Idol Description


These basic troops form the backbone of the Underworld Army. Simpleminded creatures, Skuttlers tend to forget any mishaps they suffer but also quit when the going gets tough. Yet they're still valued for their low cost and versatility.

Trophy Description



Skuttlers make no bones about coming up to you and swinging their clubs right at your face. The bigger the swing, the more it'll hurt. They act tough, and they do have a lot of health, but any strong attack from you will send them tumbling. Their shields are just for show, too. Our advice: throw them or whack them in the back.



  • The Skuttler may draw its English name from the words "scuttle" and "skull."
    • Alternatively, it may draw its name from the scuttling gangs that were formed during the late 19th century.
