The Cactus line (仙人掌; pinyin: xiānrénzhǎng) is a Class A PvZAS Icon BraveBrave plant line in Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars.

The line consists of Ball Cactus (仙人球; pinyin: xiānrénqiú), Cactus (仙人掌; pinyin: xiānrénzhǎng), and Tree Cactus (仙人树; pinyin: xiānrénshù). They all specialize in dealing with boss supporters.

Cactus is based on the plant with the same name and appearance from Plants vs. Zombies 2.
