K64 Kacti Sprite.png Kacti is an enemy from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. It is first encountered in Stage 1 of Rock Star. It yields the Needle ability when swallowed. Kacti appears on the 60th Enemy Info Card.

Kacti is a small green creature with two heavy arms raised like a cactus, and no feet. It remains motionless until Kirby gets near. Once this happens, it will start to roll about the place, moving back and forth. It will do Kirby harm if he touches it, but it can be inhaled without issue. Kacti may also be seen bouncing up and down in place.

A large version of Kacti appears as a Mid-Boss in stage 1 of Rock Star. It hops in place atop a sand pile and does not actively try to attack Kirby. Instead, a bunch of smaller Kacti appear below it which Kirby can use as ammunition if necessary.


Kacti can be found in the following levels and stages:
