The Cactus Wolf is a boss in Mother 3. It can be found in the Death Desert in Chapter 3 by Salsa and Fassad, where it is blocking the entrance to the Candrum Underpass. Fassad describes it as "the meanest thing in the desert." According to the Battle Memory, Dung Beetles are particularly fond of its Dung. He also has an unused back sprite for unknown reasons.
