For more information about the character that this line is based on, see Cactus.

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

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

Ball Cactus attacked by throwing cactus balls, Cactus attacked by firing spikes, and Tree Cactus attacked by sending lightnings.



All members of the Cactus line were based on members of the family Cactaceae, also known as cacti, waxy succulent plants which are covered in sharp spines to defend themselves from herbivores.

Ball Cactus was based on Parodiamagnifica, a species of cactus native to Southern Brazil.

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

Tree Cactus was named after a tree cactus, which is a genus of cactus in the genus Pilosocereus, however its appearance was based on a prickly pear.
