Historical Background

Cactuar is the English translation of the name of the enemy called Sabotender in Japanese. Cactuar is believed to be the words Cactus + Jaguar merged, with jaguar implying fast and agile (the Cactuar is often the most agile monster in previous Final Fantasy games). The location of the Cactuar is also a nod to where this creature gets its name, the West (just as Sabotender is located in Eastern Altepa Desert, and it gets its name from the East).
