Appearances Mario Kart 7

The Cact-X is a kart part that can be used in Mario Kart 7. As its name states, the kart body is shaped like a cactus. The emblem is located on the hood. It offers a boost in handling and off-road but has reductions in speed and acceleration. It is one of the only five karts to increase off-road boost, with the other four being the Bolt Buggy, Bumble V, Pipe Frame, and Tiny Tug. It has the same engine sound as the Koopa Clown.

CPU Toad can occasionally be seen driving in this body.

This and the Tiny Tug are the only karts that originated in Mario Kart 7 to not appear in Mario Kart Tour.
