Totenga[Japanese title] is an enemy that debuted in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. So far, it has not appeared in any other games. Totenga resembles a pole-shaped cactus with large protruding spikes and a small orange head on top, also covered in spikes. The head bears a single eye. Totenga cannot move, and as such, can only really function as a course hazard and a source for the Needle ability. Totengas earned their internal name, Togekuki, from the Japanese translation of "stem thorn".

Totenga is first found in the Raisin Ruins level, where it serves as an obstacle for Kirby and his companions in select areas. It cannot be inhaled at first, but attacking it with any non-direct methods will cause it to shrink in height. After enough damage, the cactus pole will have vanished entirely, leaving only the head which still stays in place. This can be inhaled for the Needle ability, or simply dispatched.
