It feels great to have friends who believe in you, and adults you can rely on.

Cactuar Island

The Cactuar Island is a small, desert island, located on the southeast corner of the Esthar continent. You probably won't have any troubles finding it when looking for a small, desert island near the Kashkabald Desert, where you'll see a small green figure popping up from time to time. This small, green figure is the GF Jumbo Cactuar. On this island, you will find many, many small Cactuars, which are the most evasive enemies in the entire game. You must have a high speed and hit figure to get to hit them or use your Limit Breaks to have a higher chance. Squall has the best chance of hitting them. The little Cactuars are good for 20 AP when defeated, so that's great when building up your GF abilities. They also have a habit of running away from battle.

The Jumbo Cactuar is an ancient Cactuar that has grown to immense proportions. Before you start the fight, make sure you have saved your game! Also, if you already have Revive and Recover, equip them as they'll come in handy. And make sure that the characters also have some Life and Full-Life spells and store up on Phoenix Down's, since the Jumbo Cactuar has the ability to eliminate one of your characters with a single attack. Lastly, make sure you have somebody Junctioned with Leviathan and if possible with a high compatibility and preferable not on the character with the Revive and Recover abilities. Leviathan deals water damage and Jumbo Cactuar has a weakness to Water magic.

The Battle: Jumbo Cactuar

This battle is all about patience and controlled attacks. Jumbo Cactuar has a nasty, random counterattack called 10.000 Needles, which does 10.000 points of damage and cannot be reduced by any spells. This is his most powerful attack, so watch out for it and revive any fallen party members as fast as you can, he might use it again! Start off by summoning Doomtrain once, this will inflict Vit 0 and increase your attack damage. Have one of your party members, preferably the one with the Revive ability, serve as a healer during battle to heal anyone who has been hit or to revive anyone who has suffered from the 10.000 Needles attack. As long as you don't attack the Jumbo Cactuar with the healer, you don't have much to worry about for him or her. Have the others focus on dealing water based attacks (Leviathan) and Limit Breaks. Leviathan can cause around 9999 points of damage with every time summoned to speed up the battle.

After causing substantial damage to the Jumbo Cactuar, you will see a message stating that the Jumbo Cactuar is hesitating. WATCH OUT!! It means that he is thinking about running away from battle. If he does, you will be forced to fight the battle all over again! So refrain from attacking him, only Summon Leviathan. Then quickly finish him off with your strongest attacks, like Squall's Limit Break and Leviathan.
