Currently, the Kactus Man resembles a normal Robloxian, having green on all limbs with a square head that appears to have no face.

As you can see in the right side of this body of text, the Kactus Man's figure and apparel is rather simple.

Also, Kactus Man has the normal ROBLOX animation as well, as well as the same stagger and stun animation from a recent update after the Thanksgiving Update.

Sometimes, the Kactus men wear traditional/holiday hats in part of a holiday, such as the Halloween update, for example, where the Kactus Men wore Halloween/spooky masks. In addition, sometimes Kactus Men will change their color completely, as shown in the Valentine's Update in which a pink Kactus Man will (rarely) spawn in the Training.

Function

As you may had read in the summary, their only purpose is to serve as a test dummy, featured in Training, for other players who are new to the game.
