Cactus[citation needed] is an enemy that appears in Sonic Lost World. It is a giant type of sentient cactuses that rolls around.


Cactuses resemble giant, spherical green cactuses with lines of spiky spines and a pink flower on top. They also have a face on the front which consists of two purple eyes and a mouth with two fangs. They display a disinterred expression with their face.

In the Wii U version, Cactuses appear in Desert Ruins Zone 1, 4 and Sky Road Zone 4. They come in two sizes: giant and tiny. In Desert Ruins, the giant ones appear Zone 1 and 4 where they roll around in groups, and the smaller ones appear in Zone 4, where they bounce left and right in slow patterns. In Sky Road Zone 4, giant Cactuses serve as obstacles during the sand sliding sections, where they rise from the sand behind Sonic and roll after him. The player is unable to defeat them by any means.

In the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, giant Cactuses appear in Desert Ruins Zone 1 and 3. Like in the Wii U version, Cactuses either remain stationary or roll back and forth in linear patterns. Cactuses are invulnerable to regular attacks, but they can be reduced to rubble by the Indigo Asteroid and be used to enlarge the Asteroid Ring.
