BattleEdit

The Cactuer is far more dangerous than the Cactuar, as it, unlike past Cactuars, can use the special attack 1000 Needles, which always deals exactly 1,000 damage. Furthermore, his Mystery Kick may be used twice in one turn.

While it is evasive against physical attacks, it does not have the elemental immunities the Cactuar has, and therefore is less difficult to defeat. As a trade off, it does not pay as much gil as the Cactuar. Cactuers can be morphed for useful Tetra Elemental accessories that absorb Fire, Ice, Lightning, and Earth.

StrategyEdit

One viable strategy is to use L4 Suicide on the Cactuer (as its level is a multiple of four) to lower its HP so that the Morph attack will defeat it easily. This is also easily done with Yuffie's Conformer, because morphing with the Conformer deals normal damage.

Inflicting the Cactuer with stop will also prevent it from evading physical attacks, making it much easier to morph.
