Final Fantasy Papercraft - Cactuar

Oi paperkraft netizens, here's another Final Fantasy paper model, this green cactus-looking character is the Cactuar (also known as Cactuer, Qactuar, Cactrot, and Sabotender). It's main features are two black dot-eyes, an oblong shape mouth, three red quills on the top of their head, and their trademark pose, stiff arms and legs. On the Final Fantasy video games (FF VIII) they are best known for their 1,000 Needles (Defensive attack), which deals exactly 1,000 hit points of damage to an oponent, regardless of defenses. There was also a Jumbo Cactuar that had the 10,000 Needles attack, which was kinda like an instant-death attack since prior to FF X the maximum number of hit points for a character in FF is limited to 9999. If you noticed that my Cactuar is of a different color (blueish top, green legs) and not solid green, don't panic, it's because mine is of a different breed, it's a color-shifting Cactuar (also known as Printerus Hasno Inkus). This paper model stands about 6" tall and 4" wide and comes with a stand (not shown).

  1. Hey man! thats nice! Cactuar Rulez!

    You could send for us the source link of these Final Fantasy paper models. I would like to take a look at the source site of these models!


  2. This Cactuar doesn't have any particular source site, it was sent to me by a friend who does 3D modelling. Anyways, I have a new paper model (Paperkraft created) coming out very soon, so watch out for it.

  3. The Cactuar was made by an papercraft enthustiast on http://cgi.4chan.org/po/imgboard.html

    Mostly it's just like the papercraft blogs here, providing links to existing paper models, but occasionally, somebody will make an original model and post it there. Mostly anime and video game models, though, but that's not a bad thing. ;o)

  4. WICKED COOOL!! you have some REAL COOL paper arts!

  5. Oh no. Now here's another cute paper model from Japan I feel I must make. lol And even though you posted it a long time ago now, I'd just like you to know the Howl's Castle is breaking my spirit. Maybe I'll take a break from it to make a cactuar though. :)

  13. That is AWESOME.
    I really really must make a cactuar paper model when I get better...

    I love thoes things half to death hahahaha (im such a nerd)

  14. Ron, your site is awesome! Howl's Moving Castle was a great movie, and the model you made looks really good!

  15. Qactuar and Cactrot are not the same thing as cactuar. Qactuar is a cousin species and Cactrot is a different monster alltogether. But you right about the other names.
