Cancer is one of the twelve auracites. Defeating Construct 7 nets the party the Cancer Stone, which can be used by Beowulf Cadmus to restore his love Reis Duelar to her human form. Bringing the Stone to Besrudio Bunansa in Clockwork City of Goug activates a dimensional portal that brings Cloud Strife to Ivalice.

Cancer is also a zodiac sign used to determine damage compatibility between characters during battle. Cancer has optimal compatibility with Capricorn, good compatibility with Scorpio and Pisces, and bad compatibility with Libra and Aries.
