Cuphead Wiki

The Turtle is an enemy fought in the High Seas Hi-Jinx! boss level of Inkwell Isle Three.


The Turtle is a orange sea turtle with frontal limbs with hands but ventral flippers. It wears a red bowler hat with a black stripe and has a barrel cannon installed within his sea green and yellow shell.


In the first phase for the boss battle against Cala Maria in the High Seas Hi-Jinx! level, it can be one of the three enemies Cala can summon, traveling towards the left side of the screen. The cannon on his back shoots out bombs that will explode and release bullets in eight directions. In Simple mode, the bomb will just explode in the four cardinal directions. It can be disposed of by shooting at him, after which it will hide back in his shell and raise a white flag in defeat.


Inspirations and similarities[]

  • Turtle bears a striking resemblance to the character Toby Tortoise from two of Disney's Silly Symphonies cartoons The Tortoise and the Hare and Toby Tortoise Returns. He Also Reassembles Cecil Turte from Looney Tunes
