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