Boten is a cactus-like foe who only appears in Kirby's Dream Land 3. He has a few white spikes on top of his head, has round eyes, and waits on top of some cacti for Kirby to come by. When the pink hero walks by, Boten will come down and try to spike him. He gives the Needle ability when swallowed. Boten's attacks are similar to Togezo's.
Its name appears to be derived from saboten, a Japanese word for a cactus.
