Cacti are objects that appear throughout the Sand Kingdom in Super Mario Odyssey. If Mario runs into one of them, he will lose a piece of his health meter and a few of the thorns from the cactus will get stuck on his body. Mario can also destroy cacti by running through them while riding Jaxi. Some smaller, round cacti appear in the Sand Kingdom as well and they behave the same way. One particular cactus can be captured and moved in order to reveal a shining spot which Mario can Ground Pound to reveal a Power Moon.
