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

Something Awful

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.

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.
