|Final Fantasy X-2 Enemy|
- Normal: "A plant fiend that can move just like any other creature. It slows opponents' advances with Seed Burst and the power of its Seed Cannon is formidable."
Oversoul: "A plant fiend that can move just like any other creature. Oversouled, it's now able to cause MP damage with MP Crush, so watch out!"
The Cephalotus is an enemy in Final Fantasy X-2. It is weak against the Fire element. A moderately powerful foe, it can knock MP down quickly when in Oversoul, and in both Oversoul and normal state, it can inflict heavy damage with its Seed Cannon. It usually comes in pairs or with other enemies, though it is wise to take the Cephalotus out first.
In the Fiend Tale endings, one notable Cephalotus was created from the spirit of a warrior monk whose platoon was betrayed by their captain to a local merchant and died failing to restock his ammo in time. Bent on avenging his allies, the Cephalotus finds his captain and achieves his revenge.
Cephalotus is a monotypic genus which contains the species, Cephalotus follicularis, a small carnivorous pitcher plant. The pit-fall traps of the modified leaves have inspired the common names for this plant, which include Albany Pitcher Plant, Western Australian Pitcher Plant, fly-catcher plant, or moccasin plant.
