The Cactoid is an enemy in the game Final Fantasy XII. It is not a threat, and is docile until attacked. The main difference between the Cactoid and the Cactite is that the Cactoid has a few cactus balls stacked on top of its head. However, there are Cactoids with the appearance of a Cactite found near the water in The Yoma area north of the outpost near the Banks of Nebra.

Page 1: Observations

"Being a mischievous, mean-spirited beastie, mercifully lacking the intelligence to do any real damage. Sproutlings are called cactites. A rare strain is notable for its proclivity to sprout a scarlet blossom; that being seldom seen, of the highest value, and considered a sign of miraculous good fortune by sensitive young lovers with a tolerance for needles."

Page 2: The Adventurer's Handbook

"Ye adventurers only beginning on your travels: your first task should well be the collection of 1,000 needles from the fickle cactoid. Upon plucking this collection, you will find yourself not only the proud owner of a bundle of needles, but possessed of great experience in interminable combat withal, and, should you sell it, a pittance of coin. If making a bundle exceeds your capabilities, the adventurer is urged to reconsider his or her vocation and take up employ about town. Adventuring is not all fun and games, mark you."
