Sapoten Graveyard, also known as Cactus Rock (サボテン岩 saboten iwa?, English versions: Cactus Rocks) is a graveyard located on Whisky Peak. The large, cactus-like appearance of Sapoten Graveyard makes it a notable landmark of Cactus Island.

Translation and Dub IssuesEdit
Igaram refers to the graveyard as サボテン岩 (saboten iwa?), which can be translated as "Cactus Rock"; however, a sign is later seen showing that the name of the graveyard is "Sapoten Graveyard". It is unclear if this is meant to be a translation of "saboten iwa", as "sapoten" is an incorrect romanization of "saboten" and "graveyard" is not a proper translation of "iwa", or if it is meant to be an alternate name for the graveyard.
- Mr. Sacrifice was the only legible name on a gravestone in Chapter 107.
