Cactus McCoy is the main character and the protagonist of the games Cactus McCoy and The Curse of Thorns and Cactus McCoy 2: The Ruins of Calavera.


McCoy wears a black hat with a brown stripe on it, a yellow shirt, a brown jacket and pants. He also wears a red necktie and cape. He has brown eyes and hair. he is a cactus man with spikes on his head,hat and hands. He also has green skin.


Cactus McCoy was most likely some sort of treasure hunter or bounty hunter before he was turned into a cactus. He was a brave man, apparently, as he accepted the job his boss, Hex Hatfield , gives him. It can be said he is very adaptable, as he can use any sort of object as a weapon, even if the objects purpose is not to be a weapon at all. He even has examples of using animals as weapons! (examples: the Crocodile and the Rattlesnake weapons). It can also be said that he is persistent, as despite becoming a walking cactus and getting shocked, McCoy overcomes his surprise and goes to his adventure to put the Thorned Emerald back to its place.


  • In fact, McCoy's real first name is unknown. "Cactus" is what Hex Hatfield calls him after he becomes a cactus.
  • The word "coy" in his surname, McCoy, means "shy".
  • Although he's the main character, he doesn't have any lines at all, which is similar to Crash from the Crash Bandicoot series. All of the other characters that have appeared in the games, however, had at least one line.
