About the character
Cactuar is a monster from Final Fantasy VI and continuing to appear in many later FF releases.
- More info about Cactuar in the context of Final Fantasy via the FF Wikia
On the Internet, Cactuar has become the subject of a popular series of Newgrounds animations and other fanfics due to simple Video Game fandom. But on SomethingAwful, Cactuar’s physical resemblence to a Swastika was further exploited in a number of images. This practice was later carried to 4Chan, in much the same manner as O RLY, Party Hard, and Ha! Ha! Guy
On March 2nd, 2002, Something Awful featured the Cactuar fansite Cactuar’s Desert Prison as their Awful Link of the Day.
The site contained a number of adult-themed fan-fics involving various Final Fantasy characters.
Shortly thereafter, goons began photoshopping Cactuar into images, and referencing Cactuar in poetry.
- Final Fantasy Thanksgiving
- Final Fantasy Gil Quest
- Cactuar Gear Solid

- Final Fantasy Fugitive
- Resident Cactuar
Earth-Mage-2000’s Cactuar animations gained a significant amount of user interest when Final Fantasy Gil Quest was awarded the #1 Daily Feature on Newgrounds on January 1st, 2004.

Cactuar has appeared in countless threads on 4chan, used in a variety of ways. One popular use is to start a thread featuring the following image:
with the text “Don’t Mind Me, On My Way to Page 10” which invariably instigates users to post in the thread.
Knowing that /b/ is filled with Anons with a penchant for Naziism, Cactuar’s pseudo-Swastika resemblence gives it a certain comic appeal.
