— A yellow shooting Enemigo telling Hex Hatfield that McCoy became a cactus

Enemigos are the goons of Hex Hatfield, who runs one of the largest crime rings in town. They try to prevent Cactus McCoy from getting to the home of the emerald by their various weapons. When an Enemigo is defeated, he drops his money and even his weapon, if the player is lucky. The probability of getting his weapon will increase as Cactus McCoy juggles him more. They appear in every area.

Types of Enemigo in Cactus McCoy[]

There are eleven types of Enemigos in Cactus McCoy and The Curse of Thorns. These are:

Types of Enemigo in Cactus McCoy 2[]

In Cactus McCoy 2: The Ruins of Calavera, there are more types of Enemigos. They are:


  • None of the Enemigos' faces (except for their eyes) are seen in the first game. They are completely clothed.
  • The colors of the Enemigos are given according to their clothes' colors.
  • No blood comes out of an Enemigo when he is hit or shot. This is presumably to make the game more child-friendly.
  • The word "Enemigo" means "enemy" in Spanish.
    • On the Flipline Blog, it was revealed that the decision to call the enemies Enemigos was inspired by a review on an earlier Flipline game on a Spanish website that referred to the baddies in that game as "enemigos."
  • In Cactus McCoy 2, it's revealed that a gameplay mechanic makes Enemigos can't Swim.
