Galacta-Cactus is a galactic super-rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Guardian class. It costs 1 to play, and has 2/2. It has the Bullseye trait, and its ability does 1 damage to every plant and zombie on the field, as well as both the plant and zombie hero when it is destroyed. If both heroes have 1 health, the plant hero gets hit first, resulting in the zombie hero winning the game.
It is based on a ball cactus, more specifically, the Escobaria vivipara, a small spherical cactus covered in a mat of star-shaped arrays of straight white spines, and flowers in yellow, pink, or purple blooms.

- Added to the game.
This is a very powerful plant for just 1 sun, and its ability can help greatly. You can use it to get a lot of damage on your opponent if you are using a nut deck with Mirror-Nut on the field. It can also activate the abilities of Hibernating Beary and Pear Cub, creating threats to your opponent quickly. Also, it activates Prickly Pear's ability, which can destroy a strong zombie. It is also useful as a field clear to all zombies that have 1, as it does 1 damage to everything. But this means that you should avoid using plants that have 1 unless you boost their health, as they will be destroyed by this plant's ability.
Do not use this when you are low on health as your opponent may take advantage in this and destroy it, further lowering your health. Playing this with only 1 health left should never be done since your opponent can just destroy this and cause a loss, even if your opponent has 1 health left as well, due to its ability targeting the plant hero first. You also can't block it either, since Bullseye applies to its ability as well. If you still want to use this plant if you are low in health, it is a good idea to bring Poppin' Poppies or any other healing cards to ensure survival.
You also need to be careful if there is a Zombot Sharktronic Sub on the field, since Galacta-Cactus' ability damages your own plants, which Zombot Sharktronic Sub will benefit from by destroying all of them unless they have the Armored trait or are shielded.
Since it has low stats, Bungee Plumber and Rolling Stone can destroy it easily. However, if a Mirror-Nut is on the field, you may take a lot of damage. If you are playing as a Crazy hero, you can purposefully destroy it to activate the abilities of Barrel of Deadbeards, Jester, Newspaper Zombie, and Gas Giant. You can also have Zombot Sharktronic Sub on the field to make your opponent think twice before playing it as if they do, Galacta-Cactus will damage all your opponent's plants, resulting in Zombot Sharktronic Sub activating its ability to destroy them all.
You can also use Landscaper or Shrink Ray to make this plant useless. However, be warned of Spineapple or cards that can increase its strength.
If you have 1 health, do not touch it, as it will instantly defeat you if you destroy it. Instead, Freeze or Bounce it to stall for time while healing your hero or surviving for the next few turns. However, if both you and your opponent have 1 health, destroying it will win you the game as Galacta-Cactus always damages the plant hero first.
