Scan A speedy cactus of the desert. Damage always amounts to 1,000 units with its special skill, 1,000 Needles.
HP Formula 0.1(Lv)2 + 2(Lv) + 200
Card Cactuar, Gerogero

Cactuar is an enemy in Final Fantasy VIII. A fast enemy that will surely escape if a character has low Speed stats. The 1000 Needles attack ignores Evade and status effects such as Protect and Defend and will inflict 1,000 HP every time. Very valuable as they grant 20 AP when killed. To kill a Cactuar with relative ease, either cast water or summon a GF. This should be enough to defeat any Cactuar at any level.
