The Cactuar (known as Sabotender in Japan) is a small cactus-like creature that has made numerous appearances throughout the Final Fantasy franchise. It has a shocked, bemused expression permanently plastered on its face and is always seen running. In most encounters, the Cactuar will run away without the player managing to land a hit since it has such a high evasion stat. When it does attack, it strikes out with its 1000 Needles attack which inflicts a fixed damage total of 1000. If the player is lucky enough to land a hit, they will be rewarded with a large amount of money and EXP. Cactuars have virtually no HP, so one hit is all it takes to dispatch one.
