Jumbo Cactuar is an optional boss in Final Fantasy VIII. He pops up as a curious green cactus in the Cactuar Island which can be reached after the player retrieves the Ragnarok airship. After defeating the Jumbo Cactuar, a new Guardian Force, Cactuar, is available to the party.

StatsEdit

BattleEdit

A dangerous boss in high levels, Jumbo Cactuar has attacks that mirror the regular Cactuar's attack, 10,000 Needles, but it is only used for countering. Its Ker Plunk hits the whole party.

When Jumbo Cactuar is on the last 5% of its health, a message will display: "Jumbo Cactuar is hesitating...". This means the Jumbo Cactuar is attempting to flee, so players have to unleash as much damage as possible to defeat it. Jumbo Cactuar will succeed in running away if less than 2% of its HP remains.

Jumbo Cactuar is weak against Water. Squall's Renzokuken has a special animation for Jumbo Cactuar and it always does 7 hits.

StrategyEdit

Summoning Leviathan and casting Water spells work well. The player can draw-cast Meltdown to inflict Vit 0 and thus reduce Jumbo Cactuar's defense.

One of the fastest ways to defeat Jumbo Cactuar, especially after the "Jumbo Cactuar is hesitating..." message has been displayed, is to summon Cerberus—or cast Triple—and cast Water three times in succession.

Because of Jumbo Cactuar's 10,000 Needles attack, it's easy to use Limit Breaks when reviving characters with Phoenix Downs or Life spells, but it might be smart to dedicate one team member as a healer and keep them in high health throughout the battle, as Jumbo Cactuar's Ker Plunk can wipe out the entire party at low health.

TriviaEdit

  • If the Renzokuken is performed on the Jumbo Cactuar, it will dance around in a comical way while being attacked. Unlike in a normal battle, Squall will run up to the Jumbo Cactuar and stand on its head while attacking it.
