The Battle Cats

     Other Cats 

In General

The "heroes" of the game, created by an unknown man and sent out to conquer the world.
  • Badass Adorable: They may look... cute, but they're still a ruthless army hell-bent on world domination.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: All of the main campaigns of the game end with the Cat Army achieving their goal of conquering the world, repelling the Alien invaders, and conquering the universe, respectively.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: Although the official materials portray them as sympathetic, the Cats' morality are hardline vague. Their plots can come off as standoff-ish to their enemies (who are Always Chaotic Evil anyway) as well as weird to some players.
  • Cats Are Mean: The cats themselves are cute, but they’re The Chessmasters able to conquer the world and eventually the universe.
  • Galactic Conqueror: In Cats of the Cosmos, the Cats ultimately succeed in conquering the entire universe.
  • Karma Houdini: Due to Blue-and-Orange Morality, they never receive any punishment at all for the chaos and destruction they cause. Of course many of their enemies are very hostile to them, and that's why. This would apply to their creator even more.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: The Cats' creator disappears from the story after the intro, but was nonetheless responsible for creating the world-dominating Cat Army.

Gamatoto's appearance at level 1.
A Cat adventurer that can be sent out on expeditions, to later return with XP, Cat Food, and rare items.
  • Noodle Incident: Most of his adventure logs are this.
  • Play Every Day: Gamatoto's timer keeps on ticking when the app is closed, encouraging the player to check in at least once per day to claim their rewards.
  • Power-Up Food: Catamins will speed Gamatoto up, making him return from the expedition faster.
  • Weirdness Magnet: Gamatoto and his team go on some pretty bizarre adventures when the player isn't looking.

A Cat engineer that can be hired to build new parts for the Cat Base.
  • Barrier-Busting Blow: His Breakerblast cannon is guaranteed to shatter any barriers it hits, along with dealing strong knockback in a wide area.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: The Holy Blast and Waterblast cannons are powerful tools against Zombies and Metals respectively but are functionally useless against anything that isn’t the trait they target.
  • Deflector Shields: The Iron Wall cannon creates a metal shield themed after a Tank Cat, which dissipates after taking a certain amount of hits or lasting a certain amount of time.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: The Holy Blast works this way.
  • Magikarp Power: Most of Ototo's custom cannons are very ineffective at low levels, but become much more powerful later on. The Thunderbolt and Holy Blast cannons are the biggest beneficiaries, going from barely doing anything to freezing enemies for long periods of time and ripping huge chunks out of Zombies, respectively.
  • Percent Damage Attack: The Waterblast cannon deals damage to Metal enemies as a percentage of their current HP, thus becoming less effective every time it's used. The Holy Blast instead targets Zombies and deals a percentage of their maximum HP as damage.
  • Power Nullifier: His Curseblast cannon can disable the special abilities of most enemies.
  • Power-Up Food: Like Gamatoto, Ototo can be sped up by feeding him Catamins.
  • Static Stun Gun: The Thunderbolt cannon uses an electric blast to freeze enemies, regardless of their element.
  • You Require More Vespene Gas: He needs materials to build new Cat Bases. They can be obtained by clearing most stages in the campaign or Stories of Legend.

     Normal Cats
The Normal Cats and their evolutions.
The standard 9 units that you gradually unlock over the beginning of the game. Once they hit level 30, they will evolve into their true forms.

These cats include the Basic Cat, Tank Cat, Axe Cat, Gross Cat, Cow Cat, Bird Cat, Fish Cat, Lizard Cat, and Titan Cat.

  • Area of Effect: Bird and Titan Cat have this, and Bird in particular will be your main splash damage in the early game. Tank Cat has this too, but it deals so little damage that it is rarely noticeable.
  • Boring, but Practical: These cats have very simple abilities, yet their skills are usually irreplaceable.
  • Blood Knight: Axe Cat.
  • Blown Across the Room: Titan Cat's true form, Jamiera Cat, has a chance to knock back any non-metal enemy it hits.
  • Cannon Fodder: The Basic and Tank Cats are essentially this.
  • Crutch Character: Axe Cat is your go-to red killer and combat cat in the earlygame, but his strengths quickly become overshadowed by other cats that can do his job better. Titan Cat is kind of this, but becomes much more useful in his true form.
  • Death of a Thousand Cuts: Cow Cat deals low damage but attacks incredibly quickly.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors:
    • Axe and Fish Cat are strong against Red enemies.
    • Gross Cat's true form is strong against Alien enemies.
    • Bird Cat's true form can weaken Angel enemies.
    • Titan Cat's true form can knock back any non-Metal enemies.
  • Energy Weapon: Bird Cat's evolved and true forms fire lasers.
  • Fragile Speedster: Cow Cat moves and attacks very fast, but has rather low health and gets knocked back easily.
  • Glass Cannon: Bird Cat has pitiful health but has relatively long range, area attacks, and high damage.
  • Immune to Flinching: Both Tank and Titan Cat don't get knocked back until killed.
  • Long-Range Fighter: Both Gross and Lizard Cat (especially the latter) specialize in long-distance attacks.
  • Mighty Glacier: Titan Cat is expensive and slow, but has incredibly high health and delivers devastating area attacks.
  • Multiform Balance: Unlike the rest of them, where the True Forms are more or less straight upgrades, King Dragon Cat is slightly more powerful than Dragon Cat, but has a longer cooldown. Thus, regular Dragon Cat is better on stages where money is plentiful, while King Dragon is better on stages without as much money to go around.
  • Starting Units: The initial 9 units that you'll collect over the course of Empire of Cats's first chapter.
  • Stone Wall: Tank Cat has pitiful damage but extremely high HP for its cost.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: The Crazed Cats.
  • Time to Unlock More True Potential: At level 30, all the basic cats can evolve into their true forms, which greatly boost their stats while slowing their recharge speed, and sometimes add additional effects.
    • The Basic Cat will turn into the Mohawk Cat, which simply gives it a large stat buff.
    • Tank Cat turns into Eraser Cat, which has vastly more health (but equally terrible damage)
    • Axe Cat evolves into Dark Cat, which is simply much more powerful.
    • Gross Cat evolves into Macho Legs Cat, which gains a Strong vs. Aliens trait.
    • Cow Cat turns into Lion Cat, which has double the health and much more damage while increasing his production time.
    • Bird Cat evolves into The Flying Cat, which gains the ability to weaken Angels.
    • Fish Cat turns into Island Cat, which can now deal Critical Hits.
    • Lizard Cat turns into King Dragon Cat, which has a longer cooldown but is more powerful.
    • Titan Cat turns into Jamiera Cat, which has a chance to knock back non-Metal enemies.
  • Use Your Head: Cow Cat attacks by rapidly headbutting enemies, with its description even lampshading this.
    Thinks quick, acts quick, and uses his head.
     Special Cats 

The Cat God

Classified as a Special Cat, the Cat God can be purchased with XP, and will perform miracles in most stages in exchange for Cat Food.
  • Blow You Away: One of his miracles summons a gust of wind to blow all the enemies back to their base. He also uses this as an attack when fought as a boss in Cats of the Cosmos ch. 2.
  • Bribing Your Way to Victory: He serves as an In-Universe justification. Like all Cats, he loves Cat Food, and he's willing to perform miracles if you give him some. However, this ability is disabled in Stories of Legend, all event stages, and The Big Bang.
  • Defeat Equals Friendship: He'll join you as a Cat unit after defeating him in Cats of the Cosmos.
  • Heal Thyself: Another one of his miracles heals all Cats on the field back to full HP.
  • Odd Job Gods: A self-explanatory version.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Subverted. He's only 20 years old, which is why he's not available for use in the Stories of Legend.
  • Shock and Awe: Another one of his miracles strikes all the enemies with lightning, for 3 times the damage of the Cat Cannon. It's also his main form of offense in all three Cats of the Cosmos boss stages.
  • Zerg Rush: Baby Boom, his most powerful miracle, fills your wallet to maximum and removes the cooldown on Cats for a minute, potentially letting you do this with any Cat.

Purchasable Specials
The purchasable Special Cats and their evolutions.
Special Cats purchasable in the store for Cat Food. Their True Forms are unlockable through limited-time stages.

These include Ninja Cat, Sumo Cat, Samurai Cat, Zombie Cat, Cats in a Box, Boogie Cat, Bondage Cat, Dom Cat, Kung Fu Cat, Actress Cat, Skirt Cat, Panties Cat, and Mr. .

  • Acrofatic: Sumo Cat appears to avert this trope at first, moving even slower than the basic Cat... and then its True Form plays the trope very straight, coming close to the speed level of Cow Cat.
  • Battle Aura: When their True Forms are fought in the Awakening Stages, they all emit a smoky, dark aura where they stand.
  • Cannon Fodder: Sumo Cat and Boogie Cat are essentially this.
  • Crutch Character: Ninja Cat is essentially a stronger version of the above Axe Cat that scales even more poorly into the late-game.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors:
    • Ninja, Zombie, Bondage, and Dom Cat all are strong against Red enemies. Dom and Zombie also pick up a strong vs. trait against Blacks and Zombies respectively in their true forms.
    • Mr. and Zombie Cat's true forms can stop Zombies from reviving.
    • Cats in a Box's true form can weaken Black enemies.
  • Glass Cannon:
    • Dom Cat's True Form can output massive amounts of damage, especially to Red and Black enemies, but has low HP, slow movement, short range, and is Immune to Flinching, which means that it dies extremely easily.
    • Kung Fu Cat has extremely high damage per hit, but only one knockback, crippling its surviability compared to other ranged attackers.
  • Guest Fighter: Mr. is a cameo from one of PONOS's older series of games.
  • Immune to Flinching: Sumo Cat, Bondage Cat, Dom Cat, and Kung Fu Cat all don't get knocked back unless killed. Exaggerated by Sumo Cat's True Form, which doesn't even get knocked back by enemies that are otherwise guaranteed to do so.
  • Magikarp Power: After version 10.0 gave them their Talents, a good chunk of them have fallen into this trope. While they’re usually very weak, even in their True Forms, they become much more useful after you invest a hefty amount of NP into their Talents, especially their attack and/or HP increase Talents note 
    • While he can allow you to steamroll through most of Empire of Cats, once you’re done with that, Ninja Cat easily falls into the realm of uselessness as you get farther into the game with even his True Form, Flying Ninja Cat, not doing all that much for him. His Talents bring him back into the spotlight by making him a Dodge-focused meatshield vs Reds (and Blacks, if you decide to get his "Target Black" Talent), with him doing his role surprisingly well despite his low activation chance of 20% thanks to his good spam cost, spammability, and Strong against ability, allowing him to tank certain enemies and grant more chances for a Dodge before dying. While his use is still limited vs his target traits, as he just dies outside that, the defense that he can provide will still help you out a lot.
    • Even with his fast move speed and Knockback Immunity ability, Riceball's lack of HP for his role and high spam cost greatly limits which stages he can be useful in. However, just by giving him his HP Talents, he now becomes much more capable of dealing with attacks from late-game enemiesnote . What's more, his other notable Talents allow him to become immune to other abilities like Slow, Stop, and (most notably) Toxic. While his high spam cost can still limit his uses unless you make a cost-efficient strategy, his role as a tanky meatshield with immunity to certain status effects can still greatly help out from time to time.
    • Heavy Assault C.A.T was, simply put, a rusher whose low stats meant that he wasn’t going to be used anytime soon. While he does have the ability to Weaken Blacks, it isn’t really worth using at all, considering his flaws. Invest in his HP Up, Attack Up, and Massive Damage Talents and suddenly, he becomes a very good anti-Black rusher who can now deal a good chunk of damage for a moderate price and his semi-fast cooldown meant that you can frequently deploy him on the field. What’s more, the range boost and Weaken ability that he gets in his True Form now matters; the former allows him to outrange some Black enemies and avoid getting pummelled to death by them while the latter lets him control their pushing power from time to time.
    • Before his Talents were introduced, Ultimate Bondage Cat was easily considered one of the worst cats in the game. He is supposed to be a Stone Wall version of Fish Cat, supposedly able to soak up damage from Reds, but not only was there a much better choice in the form of Sushi Cat, but his low stats means that he couldn’t even do his job. His Talents seeked to change that; his huge HP boost meant that he could actually tank against even the toughest of late-game Reds and his Dodge ability, while short at only 1 second, has a good activation chance of 40%, allowing him to activate it somewhat frequently and make him last much longer in the field than he normally should. Him being able to perma-freeze a single Red enemy is just a nice little bonus on top of all of this. All of this means that Ultimate Bondage Cat can easily compete against most anti-red tanks in terms of tanking performance.
    • Beefcake Cat was one of the most useless attackers in the game before Talents, due to his pathetically low attack power and the fact that Cyborg Cat, a nearly straight upgrade, existed. After Talents, Beefcake Cat is now a decently strong attacker that can even overpower Cyborg with his Strengthen activated, and has much better health. His Surge immunity is the icing on the cake, letting him perform nicely against late-game Surge enemies and be very effective against Kappy Jr.'s initial stage.
    • Even with the area attack it gains in its True Form, Lollycat has way too low stats to actually be worth bringing, not to mention that the spammable ranged attacker role is already done much better by a good amount of units, most notably Salon and Figure Skating. It’s Talents decide to take the unit in a brand new direction by making it a debuffer vs Metal through the use of the Slow ability, which it performs really well as a combination of its spammability, a good activation chance of 30%, range, and the duration of the ability being able to cover its attack downtime makes it so that you can quickly create a stack of Lollycats that can practically permanently slow down any Metals they hit while also outranging most Metals by a huge margin as well as a good number of non-Metals that may come to support them. While it's still practically useless outside its anti-Metal niche, it can’t be denied that the control it can provide against them is close to unmatched.
  • Super Mode: Were among the first units to get True Forms. You unlock them by beating their Awakening Stages.
  • Took a Level in Badass: As of version 10.0, all of them got talents that massively increase their effectiveness.
  • Whip It Good: Dom Cat uses this as her Weapon of Choice, swapping it out for an axe as Executioner and a lightsaber as Dark Lazer.

Legend Cats
The Legend Cats and their evolutions.
Unique and powerful Cats with strength comparable to Uber Super Rares, unlockable by completing certain stages in the campaign. For those who have true forms, they are unlocked by completing certain levels, or with Elder Catfruit.

These include:

Obtained from story chapters: Valkyrie Cat, Bahamut Cat, Cat God the Great, Filibuster Cat X.

Obtained from Stories of Legend: Ururun Wolf, Li'l Nyandam, Red Riding Mina, Miyamoku Musashi, Mecha-Bun, and Idi:N.

Obtained from Uncanny Legends: Dogumaru and Urs & Fenrir.

Obtained from the Heavenly Tower: Hermit Cat, Masked Yulala, and Master Uril.

  • Arbitrary Minimum Range: Red Riding Mina's rocket launcher has a minimum range. Masked Yulala's lightning attacks also have one.
  • BFS: Miyamoku Musashi’s weapon is a sword that’s almost as big as he is.
  • Blade on a Stick: Valkyrie Cat wields the legendary spear Meownir, which is taller than she is. In her true form, the spear gets even fancier.
  • Blown Across the Room: Ururun Wolf can knock back enemies occasionally. Cat God the Great also does this albeit it happens at his first two attacks and has a 100% chance of happening but it occurs less frequently.
  • Brick Joke: Ururun's description mentions that she has a father who happens to be a teacher. A while afterwards, the game introduced Masked Yulala, who not only is said to have a part-time job as a school teacher who also has a 12-year-old daughter (who is heavily implied to be Ururun), but has a similar mask and lightning theme going on.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Hermit Cat wields a staff that he uses as a club.
  • Cute and Psycho: Red Riding Mina. You wouldn't know it until she flashes a Slasher Smile as she blows something up with her bazooka.
  • Crutch Character: Valkyrie has great stats considering how early you get her, with fast speed, and good health and damage. But even in her True Form, she still falls behind the many Uber Rares and even her fellow Legend Cats as a midgame unit.
  • Defeat Equals Friendship: Nearly all of them must be beaten before they join you.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors:
    • Valkyrie, in her True Form, might freeze non-metals.
    • Cat God the Great always knocks back non-metals on the first 2 hits.
    • Filibuster Cat X is guaranteed to freeze traitless enemies.
    • Ururun might knockback non-metal enemies
    • Li’l Nyandam might slow enemies (including metals).
    • Mina, in her True Form, might Weaken Relics.
    • Miyamoku Musashi, in his True Form, might freeze Relics.
    • Mecha-Bun, in his True Form, is strong against Relics.
    • Idi:N deals massive damage to Relic enemies.
    • Dogumaru is Resistant to Traitless enemies.
    • Urs & Fenrir might Weaken non-Metal enemy attacks.
    • Master Uril Slows Relic enemies.
  • Fragile Speedster: Bahamut's true form, Awakened Bahamut Cat, retains his low health but now moves incredibly fast, can deal even more damage, and attacks way faster.
  • Glass Cannon: Most of them qualify, but especially Bahamut Cat, who is slow and has rather low health but can deal up to 85,000 damage in one attack. Awakened Bahamut takes this even further, as his range gets even shorter while his HP remains the same - but he now has the highest normal DPS of any cat in the gamenote . Although Idi:N2's raw DPS is lower than Bahamut's, it skyrockets to be even higher against Relics.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Whenever Dogumaru charges up and fires his laser attack, his eyes glow red.
  • An Ice Person: Urs & Fenrir has this going for them as their lightning attacks appear to have an ice element in it as well as her wolf mount having ice crystals for the spikes on its sides and its horn.
  • Item-Drop Mechanic: All of them can be obtained by just beating the stages/completing the conditions to unlock them.
    • Valkyrie Cat is unlocked by beating Dark Emperor Nyandam in Empire of Cats Chapter 2 Moon.
    • Bahamut Cat is unlocked by beating Teacher Bun Bun in Empire of Cats Chapter 3 Moon.
    • Cat God the Great is obtained after beating Cats of the Cosmos Chapter 2.
    • Filibuster Cat X is unlocked by beating his boss stage, which unlocks after beating Cats of the Cosmos Chapter 3.
    • Ururun Wolf is unlocked by beating her in the Stories of Legend stage "The Great Escaper".
    • Li'l Nyandam is unlocked by beating him in the Stories of Legend stage "Saint Red Fox".
    • Red Riding Mina is unlocked by beating her in the Stories of Legend stage "Learned to Love".
    • Miyamoku Musashi is unlocked by beating him in the Stories of Legend Stage "Multiversal Studios".
    • Mecha-Bun is unlocked by beating it in the Stories of Legend Stage "Eldritch Forces".
    • Idi:N is unlocked by beating it when it invades "Eldritch Forces" after clearing every Stories of Legend stage on every star difficulty.
    • Hermit Cat is unlocked by beating him on Floor 30 of the Heavenly Tower.
    • Masked Yulala is unlocked by beating him on Floor 40 of the Heavenly Tower.
    • Master Uril is unlocked by beating him on Floor 50 of the Heavenly Tower.
    • Dogumaru is unlocked by beating it in “Primitive Souls”, which is found in the Uncanny Legends subchapter named “Depths of my Heart”.
    • Urs & Fenrir is unlocked by beating them in the Uncanny Legends stage "Lifesaving Shovel".
  • Kamehame Hadoken: Master Uril throws a small one to attack.
  • Little Red Fighting Hood: Red Riding Mina, who is actually a trained and ruthless assassin.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Mecha-Bun has pretty high health for its cost, moves as fast as the real Teacher Bun Bun, and has the second-highest DPS of the legends barring Awakened Bahamut.
  • Long-Range Fighter: Li'l Nyandam has extremely long range, enough to snipe most enemies from a safe distance. Filibuster Cat X tops this range.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Valkyrie Cat is this both in-story and out. She's constantly troubled because God Cat keeps trying to hit on her.
  • No-Sell: Miyamoku Musashi has the Wave Immune ability, which makes him one of the few units that take no damage from Shockwaves.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Bahamut Cat is rumored to have caused an apocalypse before, his Evolved Form states that he really did, and his True Form outright says he has the power to destroy the world at will.
  • Rare Random Drop: Any unit that can be obtained by playing through Stories of Legend and Uncanny Legends has a 3% chance of unlocking them. You’re better off using a Treasure Radar to guarantee your chances of getting them.
  • Redemption Demotion: All of the Legends are far weaker than when you fought them.
  • Shock and Awe: Ururun Wolf attacks by calling down lightning strikes. Masked Yulala does this too, hinting at the connection between the two, as well as Urs & Fenrir, who adds in the ice element to it.
  • Splash Damage Abuse:
    • Hermit Cat creates shockwaves with every attack. He also attacks 3 times in one go, meaning he will fire off 3 waves of waves if the target isn't knocked back or killed.
    • Masked Yulala's attacks have an Omnistrike effect, letting him damage enemies hiding behind meatshields.
    • Master Uril is guaranteed to create a long-lasting Surge attack every time he attacks.
  • Standard Status Effects: Valkyrie Cat's true form can sometimes freeze enemies in their tracks. Li'l Nyandam can also slow enemies he hits occasionally.
  • Stone Wall: Dogumaru functions as one to traitless enemies, having around 320,000 hp against them at level 30.
  • Time to Unlock More True Potential: Valkyrie and Bahamut have true forms that must be unlocked. For the former you must defeat the Corrupted Valkyrie in Into the Future Chapter 2 Moon, and for the latter you must do the same in Chapter 3 Moon with Raging Bahamut Cat. The Legends' true forms were added in version 7.0, and are unlocked after completing the last level of Stories of Legends. Meanwhile, Cat God the Great can be evolved with a Gold Catfruit, obtained when sacrificing 1 million XP to the Cat Shrine... at a 1% chance.
    • Holy Valkyrie Cat gains a large damage increase and gets a 35% chance to freeze non-metal enemies in their tracks.
    • Awakened Bahamut Cat trades off knockback resistance and much of his range in exchange for absurdly fast movement speed, slightly higher total damage thanks to his Chain Attack, and super-fast attacks.
    • Cat God the Great becomes Cat God the Golden, gaining the double money ability and... 1% more health.
    • Ururun Wolf becomes Awakened Ururun, increasing her health, damage, range and giving her immunity to the Curse effect.
    • Li'l Nyandam becomes Schoolbus Nyandam, increasing his health, damage and slow chance, shortening his time between attacks, and giving him immunity to the Curse effect.
    • Red Riding Mina Becomes Awakened Mina, increasing her health, damage and splash damage range, gives her a 50% chance to weaken Relic enemies, and giving her immunity to the Curse effect.
    • Miyamoku Musashi becomes Awakened Musashi, increasing his health and damage and giving him a 30% chance to stop Relic enemies, Zombie Killer, and immunity to the Curse effect.
    • Mecha-Bun becomes Ultimate Mecha-Bun, increasing his health and damage, as well as making him Strong vs Relic enemies, and immune to their Curses.
  • Tsundere: Ururun is heavily implied to be one, thanks to her True Form description.
    Awakened Ururun: Now feeling the stirrings of a first crush. It’s not like she’s doing it for you! B-Baka!

Li'l Cats

Weaker variants of the basic cats obtainable through limited-time Lucky Gacha events. Their much more useful true forms are unlocked by beating their respective Calamity Stages when they're level 30.

These include Li'l Cat, Li'l Tank Cat, Li'l Axe Cat, Li'l Gross Cat, Li'l Cow Cat, Li'l Bird Cat, Li'l Fish Cat, Li'l Lizard Cat, and Li'l Titan Cat.

  • The Artifact: Their awakening stages are based on the Crazed and Manic Cat stages, but the True Forms obtained from them have far different abilities, resulting in this occasionally. For example, the enemy Li'l Macho Legs and Li'l Jamiera Cats can produce wave attacks, even though their Cat versions can't do the same thing.
  • Crutch Character: They are far cheaper to upgrade than normal cats, meaning you can easily get them to max level in the earlygame and stampede levels with cats far stronger than you should have at this point. However, they become nearly useless later on until you get their true forms.
  • Cute Kitten: Really tiny cats that are very cute.
  • Divergent Character Evolution: In their normal and evolved forms, they are just smaller versions of the basic cats. Their True Forms, on the other hand, gain abilities to fill spots that their bigger counterparts cannot. Their appearance also changes, such as Li'l Eraser Cat being rounded at the top of its head, or Li'l Macho Legs Cat having a Pointless Band-Aid instead of Cross-Popping Veins.
  • Magikarp Power: They are essentially weaker versions of the basics at first. Once they get their true forms, they get unique abilities that allow them to fill in certain niches that their normal counterparts cannot.
  • Pointless Band-Aid: Li'l Macho Legs Cat has on instead of Cross-Popping Veins.
  • Time to Unlock More True Potential: Their true forms, obtainable from beating limited-time Calamity Stages, vastly improve their stats and gives them uniquely powerful abilities.
    • Li'l Mohawk Cat has his price lowered even further: making him the cheapest cat in the game. However, he has a slightly longer cooldown.
    • Li'l Eraser Cat gains Freeze Immunity.
    • Li'l Dark Cat changes his Strong vs. trait from Red to Angel.
    • Li'l Macho Legs Cat gains the ability to knock back Aliens and break barriers.
    • Li'l Lion Cat gives him Wave Immunity: making him one of the few units that can No-Sell shockwave attacks.
    • Li'l Flying Cat gains the Strong vs. Zombies and Zombie Killer traits, making him one of the few cats extremely useful against zombies.
    • Li'l Island Cat has a higher chance to do a Critical than the normal and Manic Islands.
    • Li'l King Dragon is the exception, basically remaining as a weaker note  version of the normal King Dragon Cat.
    • Li'l Jamiera Cat has faster attack speed than Jamiera Cat, but a lower knockback chance.

Other Special Cats

There are a small handful of Special Cats that are accessed by other means. Some were accessed by entering promotional codes... in the Japanese version. Others can be found by completing certain stages, or by even more esoteric means. Some of these were later made available in the English version as well, but through different means.

These include Tricycle Cat, Bean Cats, Moneko, Crazed Moneko, Flower Cat, Capsule Cat, Cat Bros, Squish Ball Cat, Pon Cat, Blue Ninja Cat, Singer Cat, Maneki Cat, Gummy Cat, and Gacha Cat.

  • Critical Hit: Moneko has a small chance to do one, while her Crazed variant is guaranteed to.
  • Defeat Equals Friendship: Crazed Moneko must be defeated in her own set of time-limited stages before you can use her.
  • Dummied Out: Pon Cat, Blue Ninja Cat, Maneki Cat, and Gummy Cat are in the data of BCEN, but are not legally obtainable. This was Subverted for Capsule Cat, Cat Bros., and Squish Ball Cat, however; they had time-limited stages making them obtainable in BCEN for the first time.
  • Easter Egg:
    • Flower Cat can only be obtained by repeatedly dragging the door in the background of the Cat Base menu to the right.
    • In the game's port to Nintendo Switch, Capsule Cat, Cat Bros., Squish Ball Cat, Pon Cat, and Blue Ninja Cat are regularly obtainable. They can be gained by fulfilling certain conditions... conditions that the game never mentions.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors:
    • The Bean Cats have a chance to knock back Red enemies.
    • Flower Cat might freeze Black enemies.
    • Blue Ninja Cat is strong against Red enemies.
  • Idol Singer: Moneko is one who also happens to be a Cat Girl.
  • Immune to Flinching: Not that it matters much, but Capsule Cat doesn't get knocked back unless it's killed. Pon Cat, Singer Cat, and Gacha Cat have a less useless variant of this.
  • Item-Drop Mechanic: The Bean Cats are dropped after getting halfway through Empire of Cats chapter 1, while Moneko joins you after defeating The Face.
  • Joke Character: Gummy Cat takes a huge amount of knockbacks, preventing it from dealing any damage to most enemies, and it deals 1 HP's worth of damage when it attacks. It can't even function as a meatshield, due to its higher cost and slower recharge speed than the basic Cat. It's a nice subversion of Bribing Your Way to Victory, since it's one of the only Cats that can only be accessed by paying real money.
  • Magikarp Power:
    • Flower Cat has an extremely low chance to freeze Black enemies and single-target attacks, making it one of the least powerful anti-Blacks. However, its True Form boosts its freeze chance to 100% and gives it an area attack, making it incredibly powerful.
    • Singer Cat is a Subverted example. At first just a more expensive clone of the basic Cat, its evolved form, Mega Cat, is massive, detailed, and has an awesome attack animation... but it's ultimately just as weak as the original, if not more so.
  • Missing Secret: Maneki Cat appears as an empty slot in the Cat Guide in the English version, but can only be obtained via hacking.
  • Money Multiplier: Maneki Cat gains double money upon defeating enemies, and has his own one-slot CatCombo that boosts the Worker Cat level by one stage, like Rich Cat III.
  • One-Hit Point Wonder: Capsule Cat is very fast and deals a moderate amount of damage per hit, but it has only 1 HP. This ends up Double Subverted as it levels up, as it can gain up to 27 HP... which remains as 1 HP functionally against nearly 100% of enemies.
  • Palette Swap: Blue Ninja Cat is a stronger, recoloured version of Ninja Cat with some minor cosmetic differences.
  • Promotional Powerless Piece of Garbage: Seeing as they suffer from the same Absurdly Low Level Cap as most Special Cats and aren't very strong to begin with, most of them fall into this.
  • Regional Bonus: They tend to be exclusive to Japan.
  • Socialization Bonus: Bean Cats and Moneko were formerly only obtainable by getting other people to enter a special code within their own game. This was Averted later on, when the mechanic was removed and they were made rewards for completing stages instead.
  • Super Mode:
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Like the other Crazed Cats, Crazed Moneko is one to the base Cat. Unlike them, however, it's actually explained what went wrong: the stress of being an idol caused Moneko to snap.
  • Temporary Online Content: Maneki Cat was only available through a distribution held at the BitSummit Indie Game Festival.

  • Bad with the Bone: Jurassic Cat uses a bone as his weapon of choice.
  • Boring, but Practical: Salon Cat is the only Rare Cat from the Gacha which has no special abilities against certain foes. Despite that, the combination of spammability, long range and highly damaging area attacks make her incredibly powerful.
  • Chainsaw Good: Gardener Cat's evolved form uses a chainsaw to attack. Sadly, it doesn't deal nearly as much damage as any other chainsaw.
  • Critical Hit: Jurassic Cat can do these.
  • Death of a Thousand Cuts: Gardener Cat deals low damage but attacks nearly constantly.

    • Bakery Cat might Curse Angels, Aliens, and Zombies.
  • Glass Cannon: Slime Cat.

  • Mega Twintails: Parodied by Medusa Cat's evolved form, which has her snake hair tied into giant twintails.

    • Curling Cat, Glass Cat, Lone Cat and Kitten, and Stone Cat are immune to every status effect in the game.

  • Power Nullifier: Bakery Cat can Curse its targeted enemies, preventing them from using their abilities.
  • Scratch Damage: Glass Cat is imbued with the Metal Trait, which makes it take 1 damage per hit (unless it's a crit). Due to its immunity to debuffs, nothing except a Critical Hit will stop it before it hits its mark.
  • Stone Wall: Curling Cat can only attack once every four and a half minutes, but has absurdly high HP for its cost and is immune to all status effects. Unfortunately, its cooldown is a bit on the long side.
  • Suicide Attack:
    • Glass Cat is the first unit in the game to disappear when it attacks, ramming them head-on before shattering.
    • Curling Cat has a variation of this. It will ram the first target it meets before stopping and becoming a wall. While it will attack again, it takes almost five minutes to do so.

Rare Capsule Bonus Cats

Special cats obtainable through Gachas marked as containing this pool. Most of them are support units.

These include Neneko note , Cat Base Mini, Gold Cat, Metal Cat, Freshman Cat Jobs, Sniper the Recruit, Rich Cat III, and Good-Luck Ebisu.

  • Absurdly Low Level Cap: Metal Cat's maximum level is a paltry 20, which can't even be upgraded with Catseyes.
  • Arbitrary Minimum Range: Because Ebisu has the Long-Distance ability, he has one.
  • Armored But Frail: Like the Metal enemies it's based on, Metal Cat takes Scratch Damage from almost any attack. However, it has one of the most pathetic health pools of any Cat to compensate; at its maximum level of 20, it has just 12 HP.
  • Awesome, but Impractical: Freshman Cat Jobs. He has decent range and he's able to almost-permanently weaken any non-Metal he hits to a pitiful 1% of its original strength. While this can greatly stagger otherwise powerful bosses, he deals almost no damage, has the cooldown of an Uber Rare, is the slowest cat in the game, and will die in one hit from pretty much anything, usually wasting his slot on your team. His True Form helps to avert this trope by boosting his movement speed and granting him a Last Chance Hit Point — however, his Surge attack can also fall into this, as it's very inaccurate to compensate for its potential to weaken entire hordes of enemies.
  • Blown Across the Room:
    • Sniper the Recruit is guaranteed to knock back any foe that's not a Metal. His evolved form even has his own Catcombo which increases his knockback effect further.
    • Ebisu can knockback any traited enemy.
  • Critical Hit: All of Neneko's variants can do this. Special mention goes to Sunny Neneko, one of only a handful of units with a 100% crit chance.
  • Cute Witch: Neneko is dressed as one in her Halloween variant (Gloomy Neneko and Witchy Neneko.)
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors:
    • Sniper the Recruit will always knockback any non-Metal enemy.
    • Freshman Cat Jobs will lower a single enemy’s attack down to 1% of its original strength, but this ability doesn't work on Metal enemies.
    • Good-Luck Ebisu can Weaken, Slow, Stop, and Knockback any Traited enemy.
  • Experience Booster: Freshman Cat Jobs's evolved form has his own Catcombo which increases your XP gain by 10% should you bring him.
  • Glass Cannon: Rich Cat's True Form, Richest Cat, hits extremely hard for its price... but it still has less than 3000 HP at level 30, so it's ultimately still not very useful in battle.
  • Gold-Colored Superiority: Subverted for Gold Cat, a gold colored reskin of Cat. Despite being classified as a Super Rare, he is not even the least bit stronger than Cat, even having the exact same stats and stat growth as it.
  • Money Multiplier:
    • Rich Cat III gains double money off of enemies he kills. His evolved form even has his own Catcombo which raises your Worker Cat a level at the start of the game.
    • Ebisu gains double money from any enemy he kills, but due to how he is mainly designed as a support unit, he won’t be killing anything all that much.
  • Promoted to Playable: The Reinforcements were previously just images to go along with the Rich Cat, Cat Jobs, and Sniper the Cat powerups, but later became actual units.
  • Splash Damage Abuse: Cat Base Mini exclusively utilizes wave attacks to fight.
  • Stone Wall: Metal Cat is one of three units in the game (along with Glass Cat and the wall summoned by the Iron Wall Cannon, which is technically a cat unit and is Metal) that has the otherwise enemy-exclusive Metal trait, causing it to take Scratch Damage from anything that's not a critical hit. This makes it incredibly good against foes who attack slowly but deal high damage.
  • Support Party Member: None of them are even remotely good in combat, yet their support abilities are vital to executing specific strategies and many of them have their own Catcombos which reward you for simply using them in the top row.
  • Time to Unlock More True Potential:
    • Cat Base Mini's True Form, Cat Base Ultra, greatly boosts his damage, increases his range slightly, and increases the length of his shockwave.
    • Freshman Cat Jobs's True Form, Headmaster Cat Jobs, increases his movement speed significantly, grants him lethal strike survival, and makes all of his attacks create a Surge in a wide area.
    • Sniper the Recruit's True Form, Sniper the Deadeye, increases his range, speeds up his attacks, and lets him slow enemies as well as knock them back.
    • Rich Cat III's True Form, Richest Cat, greatly boosts his attack power, and gives him another CatCombo that increases the starting money in battle.

Grandon Mining Corp

A group of mining machines that were a part of the Subterra Guardians’ attack animation before becoming actual units.

They consist of Piledriver Cat, Backhoe Cat, Cutter Cat, Driller Cat, and Miter Saw Cat.

  • Arbitrary Minimum Range: Driller Cat has one.
  • Crippling Overspecialization:
    • Backhoe Cat has an okay 15% chance of a Critical Hit, but can’t attack anything except Metal enemies. This does mean it won’t waste its attacks on non-Metals, though.
    • Miter Saw Cat is useful against Aliens due to its dual resistance and massive damage abilities, but extremely weak against most other enemy types.
  • Critical Hit: Backhoe Cat has a 15% chance of doing one.
  • Critical Status Buff: Cutter Cat increases his damage by 400% when hurt. With his Last Chance Hit Point, he can do a lot of damage.
  • The Dreaded: Piledriver Cat is apparently this, with all of the other members being a little scared of her.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors:
    • Driller Cat can lower White enemies’ attack to 10% of their max strength.
    • Piledriver Cat resists and is guaranteed to knockback Zombies. It also has Omnistrike.
    • Cutter Cat does massive damage to Red enemies.
    • Backhoe Cat has a 15% chance to do a Critical Hit and can only attack Metal enemies.
    • Miter Saw Cat resists and deals massive damage to Aliens and can No-Sell warp.
  • Last Chance Hit Point: Cutter Cat has one. Combined with his Critical Status Buff, he can do a lot of damage.

Crazed Cats
The Crazed Cats and their evolutions.
Exceptionally powerful variants of the normal cats unlocked by beating their respective stages. Once all the Crazed Stages are completed, the Manic Stages are unlocked, incredibly hard versions of the Crazed stages where you can unlock their true forms.

These include Crazed Cat, Crazed Tank Cat, Crazed Axe Cat, Crazed Gross Cat, Crazed Cow Cat, Crazed Bird Cat, Crazed Fish Cat, Crazed Lizard Cat, and Crazed Titan Cat.

The majority of the tropes for the Basic Cats apply here as well, so refer to those for reference.

Tropes applying specifically to the Crazed Cats:

  • Animation Bump: Their animations are much smoother and more detailed than their counterparts.
  • Battle Aura: During their boss fights, all of them have an ominous purple aura shrouding them at all times. The Manic Cats share this aura, but also with flashes of black lightning crackling around them constantly.
  • Critical Hit Class: Similar to the classic Island Cat, Crazed Fish Cat can perform critical hits. Unlike classic Island, however, Crazed Fish has the critical ability from the get-go.
  • Dark Is Evil: They're covered in ominous black markings, fittingly for being more powerful and evil versions of the basic Cats.
  • Defeat Equals Friendship: The only way to get them is to beat them in their respective Crazed stages.
  • Leitmotif: They're associated with Carl Orff's O Fortuna.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Crazed Fish Cat has a great amount of health for its considerably lower cost, chomps down hard on enemies (especially Reds), and it's a little bit faster then the original Island Cat.
  • Power Born of Madness: They've been driven completely off the deep end, and are more powerful as a result.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: They're more often then not eviler, more powerful variants of their predecessors which serve as direct upgrades. That being said, there's nothing wrong with using both variants in one team...
  • Splash Damage Abuse: Crazed Gross Cat can fire shockwaves at a guaranteed rate, making it the go-to shockwave unit for most players. Crazed Titan Cat can fire a much longer wave at a much lower rate.
  • Time to Unlock More True Potential: They all have true forms that are unlocked by beating their respective Manic Stages.
    • Manic Mohawk Cat gains stat boosts and massively increased movement speed.
    • Manic Eraser Cat gains higher HP and massively increased movement speed.
    • Manic Dark Cat gains a large boost to its HP and damage.
    • Manic Macho Legs gains higher HP and a more potent shockwave.
    • Manic Lion Cat increases his already fast movement speed even further.
    • Manic Flying Cat has more offensive power and longer range.
    • Manic Island Cat boosts his HP and attack.
    • Manic King Dragon increases his range and damage.
    • Manic Jamiera Cat increases his HP and chance to fire a shockwave.

Other Super Rare Units

Besides the above units,there are a small handful of Cats that can be obtained by clearing various event stages.

These include Catornado, Cheerleader Cat, Catway, Little Leaguer Cat,and Express Cat.

  • Arbitrary Minimum Range: Little Leaguer Cat can hit really far away for his stats, but he can't even hit enemies in front of him.
  • Brutal Bonus Level: You have to acquire them from the Deadly "Advent" Stages.
  • Critical Hit Class: Catornado has a fairly low critical chance and average damage, but his attack speed is so fast he can rack up a lot of crits in no time. Cheerleader Cat, on the other hand, has a 100% chance to land a critical hit, but her attack animation is so long she has a tendency to miss.
  • Fragile Speedster: Express Cat basically acts as one, dealing a huge burst of damage to a single enemy and moving very fast, but not lasting very long against enemy attacks. Its evolved form, Maglev Cat, improves on this aspect by increasing its damage and becoming one of the fastest cat units in the game, its speed being on par with Immortal Yukimura. Its True Form improves on this even more by once again increasing its stats and speed, being able to outspeed Immortal Yukimura.
  • Long-Range Fighter: Sorta. Little Leaguer Cat has a short attacking range (range where he starts attacking), but his actual range (range where his attacks land) is much farther than that.
  • Money Multiplier: While Maglev Cat is better known for its Super Speed and high damage, its ability to gain double the money from enemies it kills gives it even more use outside of simple burst damage.
  • Portmanteau: The name of Catornado and his other forms (Hurricat and Catyphoon) is just a combination of the word cat and the related natural disaster.
  • Time to Unlock More True Potential:
    • Catornado evolves into Catyphoon, which just increases his HP and movement speed.
    • Cheerleader Cat evolves into Soba Cat, which gives her a simple HP and damage boost.
    • Catway becomes Time Traveller Cat, which gets a damage and HP boost.
    • Express Cat becomes Bullet Train Cat, which increases its HP, attack, and speed.
    • Little Leaguer Cat becomes Golfer Cat, whose attack can hit even further and has more HP.

     Uber Rare Cats 
Exceptionally rare cats only obtainable through the Rare Ticket Gacha. They are extremely powerful and are divided into Uber Sets.

Once they hit Level 30, some of them can unlock their true forms through Catfruit and XP.

The Dynamites

The first Uber set introduced, with no real unifying theme.

Includes Ice Cat, Cat Machine, Lesser Demon Cat, Marauder Cat, Baby Cat, Nurse Cat, Cat Clan Heroes, Lasvoss, and Wonder Momoco. note .

  • Affectionate Parody:
    • The Cat Clan Heroes are this to RPG games. They're a Ragtag Bunchof Misfits led by The Chosen One out to defeat the King of Evil. And in their attack animation, The Chosen One uses something akin to a meteor spell, and everyone in the group levels up.
    • Lasvoss is this to JRPG final bosses, if not bosses in general. He’s a monstrous "incarnation of evil" off to eradicate the forces of good, his first form has Giant Hands of Doom while his second form is more in line with One-Winged Angel, which, according to his description, is revealed against the final confrontation with the heroes. His abilities can be seen as trying to imitate Contractual Boss Immunity and Turns Red; no Final Boss would be complete without those tropes after all. His name is even a corrupted pronunciation on the phrase "Last Boss".
  • Crippling Overspecialization:
    • Lesser Demon Cat has extremely high attack power and fast attack speed, but can only hit a single target at a time. It gets even worse in his true form, since Balrog Cat now has the second highest DPS in the game but still remains a single-target attacker.
    • Marauder's high crit chance and averagely high damage make it destroy nearly any metal enemies, but make it extremely weak to anything else. Even in his true form, this overspecialization still stands.
  • Critical Hit:
    • Marauder Cat specializes in these. At his strongest form, Paladin Cat, he has a 50% chance to deal a critical attack which in combination with his fast attack rate, allows him to frequently deal critical damage vs enemies.
    • Lasvoss has a 30% chance to deal a Savage Blow to boost his already high damage output by 3x.
  • Critical Hit Class: Marauder Cat has very low stats overall, but has an extremely high chance to critical. Since Metals usually have low HP, Marauder can easily dish out One-Hit Kill attacks to them.
  • Critical Status Buff:
    • Lasvoss increases his already obscene damage by 50% at 1% HP, helped by his Last Chance Hitpoint. No Final Boss would be complete without a Turns Red ability, after all.
    • Through Talents, Greater Balrog Cat can gain a Strengthen ability that triples his damage/DPS when he only has 33% HP left. While this boosts his DPS through the roof and allows him to devastate enemies with even a few blows, its low HP trigger means that once he activates the ability, he is soon to fall.
  • Deadly Doctor: Nurse Cat is a battlefield nurse that saves lives by blowing up enemies with her giant syringe.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Of a sort. They are the first uber set introduced in the game, and the only one without a unifying theme
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors:
    • Ice Cat has a chance to freeze Red enemies. It becomes guaranteed in her true form.
    • Cat Machine takes 1/4 damage from Red enemies and Alien enemies.
    • Marauder has an extremely high crit chance which makes it excel at killing Metals.
    • Baby Cat can knock back Floating and Alien enemies.
    • Nurse Cat can slow and knock back Floating and Black enemies.
    • Cat Clan Heroes Weaken Red, Black, and Floating attacks. In their True Form, Relics is added to this list.
  • Flechette Storm: Ice Cat attacks by summoning a hail of icicles to skewer foes with.
  • Glass Cannon: Lasvoss deals an absolutely colossal amount of damage per hit (102,000 at level 30), has a 30% chance to deal Savage Blows that triple this number, and also gains a 50% attack boost when at critical healthFun fact . However, he has rather low HP, and his comparatively short range puts him at the mercy of many boss enemies that can kill him quickly.
  • An Ice Person: Ice Cat, obviously.
  • Humongous Mecha: Cat Machine.
  • Last Chance Hitpoint: Lasvoss can always survive the first lethal strike he takes. This also triggers his Critical Status Buff.
  • Magikarp Power:
    • Baby Cats is rather slow, short-ranged, expensive, and generally not worth your money. Cats in the Cradle gives it a Shockwave attack, which boosts its effectiveness massively.
    • Marauder starts off as a fairly decent metal-killer although his single-target attacks limit his usage by a lot. Then it evolves into Berserker, which has an Area Attack and even higher crit chance, letting it decimate entire hordes of metals.
  • Mighty Glacier: Cat Machine is slow in both movement speed and attack, but it has an ungodly amount of health, a resistant effect, and delivers enormous damage with each strike. Same goes for Baby Cat, except he trades in resistance for knockback/wave abilities.
  • No-Sell: Cat Machine's true form has the very rare Wave Shield trait, which not only makes it take no damage from shockwaves, but negates them altogether. This makes it one of the few cats that can protect units behind them from the waves.
    • In addition, the true forms of several others from this set have immunities. Paladin Cat is immune to Knockback, Cats in the Cradle is immune to Freeze, Cat Quest Heroes is immune to Curse while Lesser Demon Cat is immune to Weaken from the start. Lasvoss is immune to all debuffs and waves.
  • Punny Name: Lasvoss' name is a play on the term "last boss", fitting his thematic as a JRPG Final Boss.
  • Summon Bigger Fish: Baby Cat attacks by summoning its father, an angry Mythical Titan Cat, to smash its aggressors.
  • Splash Damage Abuse: Baby Cat's true form, Cats in the Cradle, produces a short-ranged wave with each attack.
  • Time to Unlock More True Potential:
    • True Forms.
      • Ice Crystal Cat raises her range and makes the freeze guaranteed.
      • Cat Machine Mk. 3 gives him even more health, longer range, and the unique Wave Shield ability.
      • Balrog Cat makes him resist weaken and gives him a massive stat boost.
      • Paladin Cat increases all his stats and increases his crit chance.
      • Cats in the Cradle increases his health, range and speed, and lets it perform Shockwave attacks.
      • Joyful Nurse Cat gets a boost in health, attack power, range and movement speed.
      • Cat Quest Heroes get doubled hp, longer Weaken duration, can target Relics, and is immune to Curses.
    • Talents:
      • Ice Crystal Cat can be immune to curses, have the Survivor ability and have Slow resistance.
      • Balrog Cat can get the Strengthen ability, lower his cost and reduce damage taken from waves.
  • Winged Humanoid: Nurse Cat has 6, seraph-style wings.

Tales of the Nekoluga

An Uber Set that revolves around huge and deeply unsettling Eldritch Abomination cats. They share a theme of being very weak in their normal forms, before getting a massive power spike in their evolved and true forms.

Includes Nekoluga, Kubiluga, Tecoluga, Asiluga, Balaluga, Togeluga, Nobiluga, Papaluga, and Legeluga. note .

  • Added Alliterative Appeal: Bikinilan Pasalan's description.
    Blistering barnacles! Seems like this bodacious beach babe has 100% chance of Area Surge attacks.
  • Arbitrary Minimum Range: Nobiluga's evolved form has a pretty far attacking range, but also has a decently-sized blind spot.
  • Awesome, but Impractical: Bikinilan Pasalan's Surge attack can dish out massive damage if it hits an enemy... but it spawns in a very wide area, so it'll usually miss its target.
  • Badass Mustache: Nobiluga sports a nice, curly one, and it's immune to just about every single debuff in the game, and has long-distance attacks that hit pretty hard.
  • Blessed with Suck: Nobiluga is immune to Knockback and Warping, among other things, but that's not necessarily a good thing. Enemies in its blind spot can attack it without risk of getting smacked by it, and he only has a single knockback before he gets killed, so there's no way for him to move backwards. And he's immune to Curses, which only seriously affect Cats with abilities that target specific enemy types.
  • Blown Across the Room: Nekoluga's evolved form is guaranteed to knock back any enemies that aren't metals. In his true form, he can freeze them too. Kubiluga also does this too except it is accompanied with wave attacks allowing it to also knockback enemies that are hiding behind other enemies or Stone Walls.
  • Body Horror: A lot of their body parts are horrendously disfigured and disproportionate.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Tecoluga's evolved and true form delivers some of the hardest-hitting attacks in the game at an extremely long range and with a high crit chance, but can only hit a single target at a time.
  • Critical Hit: Tecoluga's evolved and true forms can do these. Kubiluga's true form does them at a 100% rate.
  • Critical Status Buff: Togelan Pasalan has pitiful HP, but once he hits 1% HP his already staggering attack triples. Combined with his Last Chance Hitpoint, he can unleash deadly strikes. Averted in his true form, where he gains the attack boost at 99% HP instead.
  • Discard and Draw: Kubilan Pasalan's ability is a shockwave that can knock back all enemies except Metal. E. Kubilan Pasalan keeps the shockwaves, but trades in the knock back effect for a guaranteed critical hit.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Massive, grotesque beasts with odd and unexplained powers. The game isn't even sure whether they are still cats or not.
  • Fan Disservice: Played for Laughs with Summerluga. Its evolved form, Bikinilan Pasalan, is Unknown Cat in a skimpy string bikini.
  • Glass Cannon:
    • Tesalan Pasalan's single-target attacks pack a massive punch, but it has poor health for an Uber Rare and is Immune to Flinching, so if the enemies reach it, it's dead.
    • Togelan Pasalan takes this to its logical extreme, packing 51,000 damage at Level 30 (which can be tripled with its ability), but only 850 HP, though it's negated somewhat by its Last Chance Hit Point. Its true form does away with this, turning it into a Mighty Glacier instead.
  • Immune to Flinching: All of them except for Shishilan Pasalan and Legelan Pasalan are this. It's not a benefit, however, as it prevents them from repositioning out of danger.
  • Last Chance Hitpoint: Togeluga's evolved and true forms have a guaranteed chance to survive one lethal strike with 1 HP left. In his evolved form's case, it will trigger his Critical Status Buff.
  • Long-Range Fighter: Asiluga's true form has the longest range of any cat in the game at a whopping 1250, allowing it to strike most foes without even coming close to being in danger. Nobiluga's evolved form plays this straighter, mostly by having the actual Long-Distance ability.
  • Magikarp Power:
    • Generally, the Lugas start off as slow, weak, and expensive. Once they evolve, they suddenly gain massively increased range and stats, and most of them gain powerful special abilities. Then they evolve into their true forms, and it only gets better from there.
    • Togeluga has a variant of this, even in its evolved form. Before gaining its True Form, its extremely low HP makes it unable to use its massive attack power most of the time, even with its Last Chance Hit Point. However, Shishilan Pasalan gains far more HP and knockbacks and makes it gain its attack boost at 99% HP instead of 1% HP, making it far more reliable as an attacker.
  • Meaningful Name: Barring Nekoluga, all of them have a word in their name that describes their distinct body parts or what they represent. There's Kubi (neck), Teco (arm), Asi (leg), Bala (broken/scattered), Toge (spike), Nobi (stretches), and Papa (befitting his old man design).
  • Mighty Glacier: One trait all of them share is low speed and an extremely slow production time, but they make up for it with their powerful special abilities.
  • No-Sell:
    • Togeluga's evolved and True Forms ignore Shockwaves.
    • Nobilan Pasalan exaggerates this, by being immune to just about every single debuff in the game, including shockwaves.
  • Physical God: Shishilan Pasalan is an ancient god that bridges this world and the netherworld.
  • Power Nullifier: Papalan Pasalan's attacks are guaranteed to Curse anything they hit.
  • Scratch Damage: Balalan Pasalan, as well as its True Form Piccolan Pasalan, has one of the lowest attack stats of any Cat. In fact, it has the lowest damage of any Uber in the game, dealing a pitiful 187 damage at Level 30.
  • Shout-Out: All of their true forms are references to popular Japanese anime or video games.
  • Splash Damage Abuse:
    • Kubilan Pasalan can fire an extremely long shockwave that knocks back units. In his true form, the knockback is replaced with criticals, letting him shred tons of metals at once.
    • Bikinilan Pasalan creates a long-lasting Surge attack in a random area whenever she attacks.
  • Standard Status Effects: They specialize in these.
    • Nekoluga is guaranteed to knock back (and freeze in his true form) all non-Metal enemies.
    • Kubiluga knocks back any non-metals he hits, either with his attack or with his shockwave.
    • Asiluga is guaranteed to slow anything he hits.
    • Balaluga will always freeze (and weaken in his true form) anything he hits.
  • Squishy Wizard: Almost all of the Nekolugas have terrible survivability, so the support-oriented ones fall into this.
  • Support Party Member: Out of the six, Balaluga, Kubiluga and Asiluga stand out for being support-based, giving up any notion of offensive power for long-distance utility and disabling abilities. Nekoluga and Papaluga are in the middle (having fairly high offensive power and disabling ability), while Tecoluga, Togeluga, Nobiluga, and Summerluga are dedicated purely to offense.
  • Time to Unlock More True Potential:
    • True Forms.
      • Ultralan Pasalan has much higher damage and the ability to freeze anything he hits.
      • Lufalan Pasalan further increases his range and doubles his crit chance.
      • E. Kubilan Pasalan replaces his knockback ability with guaranteed crits to anything hit by the shockwave, but has no other changes.
      • Assassinlan Pasalan raises its range even further, giving it the longest range of any Cat.
      • Piccolan Pasalan increases its freeze time and also gives it the ability to weaken anything it hits.
      • Shishilan Pasalan massively increases his health, increases his attack rate, gives him wave immunity, and lets him triple his damage at 99% HP instead of 1%, while making him get knocked back a ridiculous number of times.
      • Mystican Pasalan gets his cost cut in half and reduces his recharge time, but no changes to his other stats.
    • Talents:
      • Ultralan Pasalan can lower his cost, increase the duration in which enemies are frozen and reduce damage taken from waves.
      • Assassinlan Pasalan can increase the duration of its Slow, gain a chance to survive a lethal strike, and gain a chance to dodge damage from all types of enemies.

Sengoku Wargods Vajiras

An Uber set with units based off of legendary figures in Japanese history. All of them are effective against Black enemies.

Includes Sanada Yukimura, Maeda Keiji, Oda Nobunaga, Date Masamune, Takeda Shingen, Uesugi Kenshin, Imagawa Yoshimoto, Narita Kaihime, and Musashi Miyamoto.

  • Ax-Crazy: Immortal Kenshin is stated to have lost all emotion but the urge to destroy everything.
  • An Axe to Grind: Shingen's true form wields a gigantic axe as his weapon.
  • Arbitrary Minimum Range: Yoshimoto can attack foes from very far away, but not those too close to him.
  • BFS: Shingen uses a giant sword as his weapon in his normal and evolved forms.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: It's implied that Masamune, Shingen, and Kenshin are possessed by the power of the legendary artifact that made them this way, causing them to become destructive and violent. Kenshin's true form even says that she's been completely consumed by corruption.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Shingen delivers enormous damage from long range and has incredible bulk (especially in his true form), but can only attack Black enemies, Aliens, and the enemy base.
  • Critical Hit: Narita Kaihime has the Savage Blow ability, which in her case gives her a 15% chance (25% in True Form) to deal tripled damage on attack. Unlike true crits, however, it does not affect metal enemies.
  • Death from Above: Yoshimoto calls down a barrage of golden lasers to attack.
  • Demon King Nobunaga: Guess who has the most monstrous-looking appearance?
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors:
    • Sanada Yukimura does massive damage to Black Enemies.
    • Maeda Keiji is resistant to Black enemies.
    • Oda Nobunaga will freeze Black enemies at a 100% rate.

  • Eye Beams: Kenshin attacks with a red laser from her vehicle's one
  • Fragile Speedster: Yukimura is incredibly fast (his True Form actually has the second fastest speed in the game tied with Express Cat) and delivers incredibly high burst damage (especially to black enemies), but has rather low HP and gets knocked back easily.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Keiji uses an oversized tobacco pipe to attack. His true form uses a tree.
  • Merger of Souls: Oda Nobunaga is the manifestation of the grudges of many souls (and one cat).
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Shingen has four arms and is undoubtedly dangerous (if you happen to be a Black or Alien enemy).
  • No-Sell: Immortal Keiji is one of an elite few units that can ignore Shockwaves.
  • Shout-Out: They are all references to legendary Japanese generals.
  • Time to Unlock More True Potential:
    • For their True Forms, the Wargods exchange their "Wargod" titles for the more menacing "Immortal" subtitle.
      • Immortal Yukimura is even faster (tied with Express for second fastest cat in the game) and has higher attack power.
      • Immortal Keiji increases his stats, grants Wave Immunity, and allows him to double his damage at half health instead of 30% health.
      • Immortal Nobunaga increases his stats, and doubles his already lengthy Freeze duration.
      • Immortal Masamune raises his stats.
      • Immortal Shingen massively increases his attack, HP and range.
      • Immortal Kenshin moves and attacks faster, along with having more HP.
      • Immortal Yoshimoto increases his health, range, and Weaken duration.

      • Immortal Nobunaga can move faster, become immune to curses, reduce damage taken from waves and gain the Survivor ability. Unlike most units, he only has a Defense Up stat talent whereas most others would have both Attack and Defense up talents.
      • Immortal Shingen can target Angels, break Barriers and lower his cost.
  • Turns Red: Keiji doubles his damage when his HP is at 30%. His True Form, Immortal Keiji, can do so at 50% HP instead.
  • Wolverine Claws: Yukimura attacks with these.

Cyber Academy Galaxy Gals

An Uber set with a theme of high-tech Animesque Stripperific Magical Girl fighters from space.

Includes Kalisa, Thundia, Windy, Coppermine, Kuu, Kai, the Twinstars, Myrcia, and Headmistress Jeanne. note 

  • Animesque: Possibly the closest thing the game has to full-blown anime.
  • Badass Adorable: While they look like cute anime girls, they are also superpowered space fighters that can evolve into full-fledged goddesses.
  • BFS: Kalisa's weapon is a cursed sword almost as big as she is.
  • Blow You Away: Windy uses superpowered gusts of air to attack.
  • Close-Range Combatant: Kalisa deals incredible damage, but at a range short enough to let most enemies make mincemeat out of her. Her True Form alleviates this somewhat by giving her slightly longer range.
    • Kai is an even bigger example of this: her True Form grants a massive increase to health and attack, but she has the lowest range of any unit in the set.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Kai is an airheaded, clumsy girl who literally moves by bouncing around and falls for anyone that is nice to her.
  • Cyborg: All of them except Kalisa seem to be fused with some kind of machinery.
  • Death from Above: Coppermine attacks by sending a small saucer above her foe, which fires down a large beam.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: This seems to be Kalisa's favorite thing to do to those who annoy her.
    • She almost blew up her school on the first day of class.
    • Once she graduated, she banished her principal to the netherworld.
    • Anybody that confesses their love to her will find themselves graduated to the next world.
  • The Dividual: The Twinstars are two girls, but are treated as one unit.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors:
    • Thundia deals triple damage to Reds.
    • Windy deals triple damage to Floating enemies.
    • Kalisa deals triple damage to Angels.
    • Coppermine can freeze Floating enemies.
    • Kuu is Strong Against (x1.5 damage given, 1/2 damage taken) Red and Black enemies.
    • Kai takes 1/4 damage from Floating enemies.
    • The Twinstars deal triple damage to Black and Alien enemies.
    • Myrcia has a 30% chance to dodge colorless attacks for 2 seconds upon taking damage from them.
  • Energy Weapon: Kai's attack has her fire a point-blank laser that deals extremely high damage. Coppermine also attacks by calling in a massive laser from the sky.
  • Hot-Blooded: With a penchant for verbal abuse and tendency to smash anybody that doubts her strength, Kuu fits the bill.
  • Last Chance Hitpoint: Kai has the ability to survive one lethal strike. Considering that she usually fights on the frontlines, it won't really be helping her too much.
  • Monkey King Lite: Kuu is basically a female Sun Wukong, with a giant staff that can grow even bigger, a Hot-Blooded attitude, and riding on a cloud.
  • Megaton Punch: Myrcia attacks by summoning a giant holographic fist with her gauntlets, which she slams into her enemies.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: Myrcia does this every time she finishes an attack. It's borderline audible.
  • No-Sell: Divine Kuu is immune to Weaken and Divine Kai is immune to Knockback. Myrcia, however, can become totally immune to colorless damage for 2 seconds if she triggers her dodge ability.
  • Physical God: All of their true forms affix them with the "Divine" title. note Even the Twinstars are stated to be demigods.
  • Shout-Out: All of them except Kalisa and the Twinstars are references to Japanese myths, with Kuu, Kai and Coppermine being references to Journey to the West, while Thundia and Windy are references to Japanese Gods (specifically, Raijin and Fujin). Kalisa, on the other hand, greatly resembles Hatsune Miku.
  • Stripperific: The most prominent example in the game, with their outfits gradually getting more skimpy as they level up with the exception of the Twinstars. Lampshaded by Divine Thundia's encyclopedia entry.
    When you have the body of a goddess, it's hard to find clothes that fit.
  • Shock and Awe: Thundia fires enormous lightning bolts to attack.
  • Splash Damage Abuse: Myrcia triggers a small shockwave whenever she lands her second hit.
  • Token Mini-Moe: The Twinstars, being the youngest-looking of the bunch.
  • The Stoic: Coppermine apparently doesn't smile that often, unless she's faced with a cat.
  • Time to Unlock More True Potential:
    • For their true forms, they exchange the Greek letter names with the "Divine" title.
      • Divine Thundia massively boosts her stats and range while doubling her move speed. Divine Windy is essentially the same.
      • Divine Coppermine raises her stats and freeze chance while making her immune to freeze.
      • Divine Kuu massively increases her stats and raises her range, while making her attack faster and gain weaken immunity.
      • Divine Kai gains knockback immunity and a massive boost to her HP, speed and damage.
      • Divine Kalisa raises her damage even further and boosts her range.
      • Divine Twinstars raise their damage and speed, and reduces their recharge time even further.
      • Divine Myrcia greatly boosts her HP and doubles her shockwave length.
    • Talents:
      • Divine Thundia can get the Strengthen ability, become immune to curses and reduce damage taken from waves.
      • Divine Windy can get the Strengthen ability, become immune to curses and Freeze enemies.
      • Divine Kuu can Weaken enemies, become immune to curses and reduce damage taken from waves.

Lords of Destruction: Dragon Emperors

An Uber set with a theme of incredibly powerful god-dragons.

Includes Megidora, Sodom, Raiden, Vars, Kamukura, Dioramos, Relentless Gladios, Ganglion, and High Lord Babel. note 

  • Arbitrary Minimum Range: Ganglion has one, although it's admittedly quite small.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Ganglion was the first Dragon Emperor and the founder of Dragons.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Gladios resembles a massive rhinoceros beetle.
  • Blade on a Stick: Vars's weapon is a huge spear almost as big as the dragon he's riding. It turns into a halberd in his true form.
  • Blown Across the Room: Raiden always knocks back Red enemies, while Megidora and Sodom, Kamukura, Dioramos, and Vars have a chance to knock back Floating, Red, Angel, and Black enemies, respectively. Sodom and Dioramos' True Forms increase the chance to do so up to 100%.
  • Dig Attack: Sodom has an interesting variation. He sends his spiked tail underground, which then erupts from under a foe to deal damage.
  • Dragon Rider: Vars is one.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors:
    • Megidora can knock back and slow Floating enemies.
    • Sodom can knock back Floating enemies (always will in True Form) and takes 1/4 damage from them.
    • Raiden will always knock back Red enemies, and is Strong Against them in its true form.
    • Vars can knock back and slow Black enemies.
    • Kamukura can knock back and slow Red enemies.
    • Dioramos can knock back and slow Angel enemies. In his true form, it's guaranteed.
    • Gladios can knock back and slow White enemies, both at a 50% rate. His True Form makes that percentage 100%.
    • Ganglion is strong against Alien/Zombie enemies and has the Zombie Killer trait.
  • Emotion Bomb: God-Emperor Dioramos's attacks are fueled by the hate of his enemies.
  • Energy Weapon: Ganglion's attack consists of him charging and firing a deadly laser.
  • Gatling Good: Raiden's primary weapons are two arm-mounted chainguns.
  • Instant Awesome: Just Add Dragons!: Obviously.
  • Instant Runes: Ganglion creates these both to hover and to fire its attacks.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Raiden isn't a dragon; rather, it's a machine created to combat against them.
    • A better case would be Ganglion, who is a pretty stark contrast from the other Dragon Emperors. He doesn't have a knockback ability like the others, he's the fastest of them all, and he can target two enemy types instead of just one. He's also the only one that doesn't have the title "God-Emperor" in his true form.
  • Making a Splash: Kamukura attacks with a massive pillar of water.
  • Mighty Glacier: Sodom is incredibly slow, but he hits hard. Dioramos also qualifies, but not as much.
  • No-Sell:
    • Sodom is immune to enemy knockback.
    • Dioramos is immune to enemy slows.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: All of them are extremely dangerous and have potentially world-destroying powers.
  • Physical God: If their true forms all having the prefix "God-Emperor" wasn't obvious enough.
  • Shock and Awe: Megidora's attack animation in his evolved/true forms has him fire an electric blast.
  • Shout-Out: Dioramos resembles Destoroyah, and Kamukura also resembles Shenron. His evolved form even has Dragon Balls floating around him! Dioramos also references one of PONOS’ old games of the same name.
  • Stronger with Age: Ganglion in particular has lived for thousands of years, gathering more power all the while.
  • Time to Unlock More True Potential:
    • For their True Forms, their names are characterized by having "God-Emperor" in front of them. The exception to this is Ganglion, who becomes Ganglion the Unleashed.
      • Megidora gets more health, range, attack power, and movement speed.
      • Sodom gets more range and even more health, buffs his knock-back chance to 100%, and slightly boosts his movement speed and attack rate.
      • Raiden gets increased HP, range, and speed, and becomes strong against Red enemies.
      • Vars gets a buff in health, attack power and range.
      • Kamukura has his health and range increased, as well as decreasing the time between attacks.
      • Dioramos hits harder from a longer range, gets his already high health boosted even higher, allows him to always knock back and slow Angel enemies, and gives him the ability to break barriers.
      • Ganglion gains more HP and increases his number of knockbacks, letting him reposition himself more often
    • Talents:
      • God-Emperor Megidora can increase his Knockback frequency, do Wave attacks and become immune to curses.

  • Arbitrary Minimum Range: Kintaro, being the only long distance attacker in the Ultra Souls.
  • Awesome, but Impractical: Super Galaxy Cosmo's glorious, drawn-out, 11-second long attack animation which looks cool as hell but is liable to make him miss his attack.
  • Combining Mecha: Kinrangers Roboforce, as the name indicates, consists of several vehicular parts that combine to form a huge cannon for their attack.
  • Cool Car: The Peach Angels ride around in one. It gets colored in and receives a sweet flame decal in its True Form.
    "Ends may not justify the means, but they definitely justify owning a sweet ride."

  • Magikarp Power: Zig Zagged. All the units in this category gain a boost in stats and price in their Evolved/True Forms, but the Normal Forms can sometimes be just as, or even more, effective then their stronger versions due to the ability to be spammed.
  • Ninja Run: Super Galaxy Cosmo's method of moving.
  • Nuke 'em: Jizo's Moving Castle can fire a massive blast that gives the appearance of this.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Their unevolved forms are the size of normal cats, but are still incredibly strong.

  • Shout-Out: All of their concepts date back to ancient Japanese folk tales. Their evolved forms generally draw inspiration from various animes and media.

Justice Strikes Back: Dark Heroes

An Uber set revolving around Anti-Hero characters, with Dark Is Not Evil heavily in effect. All of them are effective against Aliens, with their type effectiveness changing with their forms.

Includes Catman, Warlock and Pierre, Akira, Mekako Saionji, The White Rabbit, Hayabusa, Detective Vigler, Sharpshooter Saki, and Doktor Heaven. note .

  • The Corruption: Oni Hayabusa's transformation was caused by a strange power in his chest threatening to consume him.
  • Cosplay Otaku Girl: White Rabbit insists on cosplaying during every heist. However, she's never failed a mission.
  • Crippling Overspecialization:
    • Warlock and Pierre has good range, enormous HP and damage, and the ability to deal quadruple damage to the enemy base (Normal) or harvest doubled money from enemies (Evolved). However, he only attacks Alien/Floating (Alien/Angel in evolved form) enemies and the enemy base. Taken Up to Eleven by his True Form, which resists nearly every debuff and has even more power, yet now only attacks Aliens and the enemy base.
      • Bunny and Canard, the Easter version of Warlock and Pierre, does massive damage (without the massive damage ability,) but only attacks Red/Black units. Its Evolved Form, Disciple Psychoduck, only attacks Red/Zombie, and trades its resistances to freeze and slow for the Zombie Killer ability.
    • Sharpshooter Saki has the highest DPS of any unit with an Arbitrary Minimum Range, but can only attack Red and Aliens (Zombies and Alien in evolved form). Her Summer variant instead targets Floating and Black, or Floating and Angel in evolved form.
  • Critical Hit Class: Hayabusa's relatively high 30% crit rate, long range, and fast attacks make him one of the best metal killers you can get.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: While they may be anti-heroes at best and some even use demonic powers, they are nevertheless on your side. Considering the Cats' Villain Protagonist tendencies, this could fall into the other trope as well.
  • Death from Above: Mekako's true form attacks by launching a giant rocket that crashes back down onto foes.
  • Discard and Draw: Unlike most Ubers, the Evolved and True Forms of the Dark Heroes don’t improve on the base form but instead make them a different uber entirely, usually by changing their target traits and/or their abilities, which you can switch into by changing them into their Basic/Evolved/True Forms, effectively making them multiple ubers in one unit.
  • Dungeon Bypass: Warlock and Pierre has the normally enemy-exclusive Base Destroyer ability, which quadruples his damage against enemy bases. If the level doesn't have a defined boss (which makes it impossible to One-Hit Kill the base), a small group of them can demolish the enemy castle before any threatening enemies even have a chance to show up.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors:
    • Catman deals massive damage to Alien/Floating enemies, Dark Catman does the same to Aliens/Angels, and Ultimate Catman can do this to Aliens/Relics.
    • Warlock and Pierre only attacks Alien/Floating enemies. His evolved from, Dark Merchant Babil only attacks Aliens/Angels, and his True Form Mad Doctor Klay only attacks Aliens.
    • Akira sometimes stops Aliens, while Dark Akira can increase his attack power when at half HP. Inferno Akira is instead strong against Aliens.
    • Mekako Saionji is resistant to Black/Alien foes, while Dr. Mekako can knock back and weaken Aliens. Mission Control Mekako, on the other hand, deals massive damage to and slows Aliens.
    • The White Rabbit can slow Aliens/Reds, the Black Cat is strong against them instead, and The Gray Fox knocks back and slows them.
    • Hayabusa can deal strong critical hits to crush Metals, and Oni Hayabusa can knock back and slow Aliens, while Akuma Hayabusa switches his target to Zombies and gives him the Zombie Killer trait.
    • Detective Vigler can freeze Floating and Aliens at a 50% chance, Inspector Gabriel does the same to Zombies and Aliens, and Section Chief Gravicci does this to exclusively Zombies but with a 100% chance to freeze and becomes Strong against them.
    • Sharpshooter Saki only attacks Reds and Aliens (Zombies and Aliens in evolved form).
  • Guns Akimbo: The White Rabbit (and her Evolved and True forms) dual wields machine pistols.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: Dark Catman became a monster to fight the terrors of the night. Still weak to autograph requests from old ladies.
  • Humongous Mecha: All forms of Mekako Saionji use a giant robot to attack.
  • Laser Blade: Akira's true form, Inferno Akira, uses these to attack.
  • Last Chance Hitpoint: Mekako's first form can survive one lethal strike.
  • Money Multiplier: Warlock and Pierre's evolved form, Dark Merchant Babil, gets doubled money on any enemy kills.
  • Multiform Balance: Their normal, Evolved, and True Forms usually all have different abilities that aren't any better or worse, but just target different enemies.
  • Nerf Arm: Squirtgun Saki uses a water pistol as a weapon, but it's just as dangerous as her original variant's weapon... if you happen to be a Floating or Black/Angel enemy.
  • No-Sell: Akira resists Weaken, while Inferno Akira is immune to Shockwaves. Mad Doctor Klay, on the other hand, is immune to every debuff except Warp.
  • Power at a Price: Oni Hayabusa gains increased strength in exchange for the mysterious power in his chest beginning to consume him.
  • Shout-Out: The majority of the characters have some kind of reference woven into them. The most obvious ones are Catman and Warlock and Pierre's True Form, Mad Doctor Klay.
  • Splash Damage Abuse: Detective Vigler can create shockwaves with every attack he lands.
  • This Is a Drill: Akira uses a drill built into his arm.
  • Time to Unlock More True Potential:
    • True Forms:
      • Mad Doctor Klay increases his damage and HP to absolutely ludicrous levels while trading the Base Destroyer/Bonus Money abilities for immunity to almost all debuffs, but limits his targeting to Aliens and the enemy base.
      • Inferno Akira swaps his abilities for a strong vs. Aliens trait and gives him Wave Immunity.
      • Mission Control Mekako trades off her previous abilities for the ability to do massive damage to and slow Aliens.
      • Ultimate Catman deals Massive Damage to Aliens and Relic enemies instead of Floating/Angels, and is immune to Curses.
      • The Grey Fox trades in her abilities for a guaranteed chance to knock back and Weaken Red and Alien enemies.
      • Akuma Hayabusa has the same abilities as Oni Hayabusa, but now targets Zombie enemies instead, which also comes with the Zombie Killer ability.
      • Section Chief Gravicci trades his ability to stop aliens and zombies into being only an anti-zombie by becoming strong against them and having a 100% chance to freeze them as well as a shorter time between attacks.
    • Their Talents consist of some (or all) of the abilities of their previous forms, usually at a lower quality that the form that originally has it, and, sometimes, a brand new one:
      • Inferno Akira can regain his Strengthen and Freeze along with him getting the Survivor ability.
      • Mission Control Mekako can regain her Weaken, Knockback and Survivor abilities.
      • Mad Doctor Klay becomes immune to every status effect he isn’t immune to already, except poison (Warp, Curse, and Wave Attacks).
  • Turns Red: Shadow Akira can increase his damage by 50% when at half HP.

  • Time Master: Chronos, obviously. She can freeze any enemies with traits, and she's immune to it herself.
  • Time to Unlock More True Potential: All of them gained True Forms in update 9.10. While the visual and stat changes from them are quite minor for the most part, they also all gained Talents. All of them can boost their HP and attack through Talents, except for Aphrodite.

    • Chronos's True Form boosts her HP and attack, and lets her No-Sell Warp. Through Talents, she can also resist Curse and slow, and boost her movement speed.

  • Kill Sat: The Orbital Platform Armageddon delivers a devastating thermonuclear strike to obliterate foes. In a twist, the platform partially teleports itself to the battlefield to deliver its blast every time it attacks.
  • Promoted to Playable: The mining machines in Subterra Guardians' attack animation have been added to the game as individual units, in the Grandon Mining Corps subset.
  • Summon Bigger Fish: Orbital Platform Armageddon appears to be a single cat at first...who, if threatened, will call in a massive batttlestation through a portal to nuke his target. The same goes with Subterra Guardians, which is just a single Cat with a metal detector...which goes off, and several mining machines burst out of the ground while he runs around in panic.

  • Ambiguous Gender: Unlike most Ubers, their genders are not specified.
  • Arbitrary Minimum Range: Aer uses long-distance attacks with a blind spot.
  • Badass Adorable: Upon first appearance, they appear to be adorable little pixies akin to Pokémon. However, they are embodiments of cosmic power, are strong enough to destroy the planet, and are among the few units able to easily defeat the Star-Aliens that most other units struggle with.
  • Barrier-Busting Blow: All of their attacks are guaranteed to shred right through barriers in a single hit.
  • Blow You Away: Aer attacks with massive tornadoes powerful enough to blast apart mountains.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: One trait nearly all of them share is being quite weak against non-Alien enemies, compared to other Ubers in terms of general use.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Gravi commands the latent energies of meteorites and asteroids to smash threats to the Cats.
  • Elemental Embodiment
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors: They are all extremely proficient at killing Aliens and Star-Aliens.

Limited Time Pools (Uberfest, Epicfest, Red Busters, Air Busters, Metal Busters, Wave Busters)

Uber Pools that only show up every once in a while. Uberfest and Epicfest give a chance at all Ubers, while Red/Air/Metal/Wave Busters give a chance at anti Red/Air/Metal/Wave ubers. Each of them have their own unique ubers, however.

Includes Baby Gao, Miko Mitama, D'Artanyan, Kasli the Scourge, Baby Garu (Uberfest) Shadow Gao, Shadow Mitama, D'Arktanyan, Kasli the Bane (Epicfest), Pai-Pai (Red Busters), Strike Unit R.E.I. (Air Busters), Sakura Sonic (Metal Busters), and Hell Warden Emma (Wave Busters).

  • An Ice Person: Ice crystals will appear whenever Shadow Gao strikes a foe. Fittingly enough, he also freezes White foes.
  • Arbitrary Minimum Range: Miko Mitama, D'Artanyan, Kasli the Scourge, and their Epicfest counterparts all have one.
  • Badass Adorable: All the Uberfest units in their first forms.
  • Crippling Overspecialization:
    • Downplayed with the Ubers from the various "Busters" banners, who can crush any enemy that they can line up a weakness against but are rather poor outside of that niche.
    • The Epicfest Ubers have crushingly powerful abilities against traitless enemies, but are less versatile than their Uberfest counterparts. However, their high stats still make them good in many situations.
  • Cherry Blossom Girl: Sakura, name aside, seems to have a cherry blossom motif. She has cherry petals in her hair, her sword glows pink gains cherry-blossom like extensions when she attacks, and her slash itself releases glowing cherry petals. Her official animation even has her relaxing under a cherry tree.
  • Critical Hit: Gao can do these, albeit at a rather low 10% rate. Sakura can also crit at a 5% rate.
  • Drop the Hammer: Pai-Pai uses a gigantic hammer larger than she is.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors:
    • Baby Gao is Strong Against all traited foes, taking 50% damage from and dealing 50% more damage to them.
    • Miko Mitama is Resistant to all traited foes, only taking 25% damage from them, and is also guaranteed to slow them.
    • D'Artanyan deals Massive Damage (3x) to all traited foes.
    • Kasli the Scourge knocks back all traited foes.
    • Shadow Gao deals 3x damage to traitless enemies and can freeze them in his evolved form.

    • D'Arktanyan deals 3x damage to traitless enemies.
    • Pai-Pai and Strike Unit R.E.I. take 25% damage from and deal 3x damage to Reds and Floatings, respectively.
    • Sakura Sonic takes 25% damage from Metals, and is guaranteed to both slow them and halve their attack power on hit.
    • Baby Garu is resistant to all traited foes.
  • Fembot: Strike Unit R.E.I. is one, although it's not initially apparent.
  • Flash Step: Sakura attacks by teleporting a short distance to her target, unleashing a lightning-quick slash, and dashing back.
  • Glass Cannon: D'artanyan, especially in his evolved form. His range is shorter than the other Uberfest-exclusive Cats, he has no defensive abilities against traited enemies like Gao or Mitama, and his fast movement speed makes him likely to run into danger. However, his damage against traited enemies is much higher than the others' to compensate, and his Long Distance attacks let him hit more enemies with that damage.
  • Joshikousei: Sakura Sonic is described as "an average schoolgirl" who is constantly on her cell phone, enjoys bubble tea and likes vanquishing demons. Fittingly enough, her first form has her in a school uniform.
  • Magikarp Power: Like the Ultra Souls, the Uberfest Ubers zig-zag this: they have spammable normal forms and powerful evolved forms, and each one has its own strengths and weaknesses.
  • Master of All: All 5 Uberfest Ubers have devastating effects against any traited enemies. Combined that with the fact that most enemies in the game have a trait, and holy crap.
  • Miko: Miko Mitama, of course.
  • Lovable Coward: Baby Gao is apparently a crybaby, attributed to his young age.
  • No-Sell:
    • Mighty Lord Gao is immune to Shockwaves.
    • Miko Mitama and Dark Mitama are immune to almost all debuffs, including Wave Attacks.
    • D'Artanyan and D'Arktanyan are immune to Shockwaves and Warping.

    • Diabolic Gao is immune to waves and Knockback.
    • Kasli the Bane is immune to Waves, Surges, Weaken, Warp and Curse.
    • Pai-Pai is immune to Weaken.
    • R.E.I. is immune to Slow.
    • Sakura is immune to Weaken and Slow.
    • Emma is able to block wave attacks.
  • Playing with Fire: Mitama attacks with a cat-shaped burst of flame. Shadow Mitama does this with a blue flame instead.
  • Power Glows: Gao and Shadow Gao's tails glow whenever they attack. Sakura's blade also glows pink when she prepares to strike.
  • Power Nullifier: Kasli the Bane will always curse anything she hits.
  • Purposely Overpowered: Considering they only even appear once in a blue moon and have the standard Uber rarity, of course getting one of the Uberfest or Epicfest Ubers will snap the game in half in one way or another.
  • Sealed Evil In A Person: According to Kasli the Scourge's description, her soul is a prison to 1,000 vengeful ghosts.
  • Splash Damage:
    • Emma has an Omnistrike attack that lets her hit enemies a short distance behind the frontlines, which helps make up for her short range.
    • Mighty Aegis Garu is guaranteed to create mini-waves with each hit.
  • Stone Wall: Mighty Aegis Garu has an insane amount of HP against traited enemies, but his DPS is lower than the other Uberfest units. With that said, his attack power is still objectively good, especially with his mini-waves factored in.
  • Super-Powered Evil Side: The Epicfest Ubers are this to their Uberfest versions, coming from almost-identical gacha sets and filling similar roles to each other, but Shadow Gao comes from the darkest timeline, Dark Mitama has embraced the darkness of the cruel world, D'Arktanyan seeks nothing more than true justice, no matter the sacrifices, and Kasli the Bane became the personification of disaster itself.
  • Turns Red: D'arktanyan can increase his high damage even more at low health.
  • Weaponized Exhaust: Emma uses the exhaust from the floating vehicle she's riding on to burn up enemies.

Celebration Ubers

Ubers that don’t have a recurring set to get them but instead only appear on special occasions (e.g. the Anniversary of The Battle Cats' release, New Years)

Includes Li'l Valkyrie and Li'l Valkyrie Dark.

  • Barrier-Busting Blow: Li'l Valkyrie might break Starred Alien Barriers at a 30% chance.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Li'l Valkyrie Dark is just Li'l Valkyrie except she wears black armour, has red eyes, and white hair. Heck, she even has the word Dark in her name. Despite all of this, she's actually someone who smites evil and her Evolved Form's description says that she subdues agents of evil.
  • No-Sell: Li'l Valkyrie is immune to every debuff in the game as well as Wave Attacks. Li'l Valkyrie Dark doesn’t have any debuff Immunity whatsoever but still has Wave Immunity.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: Despite being much smaller and cuter than the original Valkyrie Cat, both Li'l Valkyries are incredibly powerful in battle.
  • Super-Deformed: Li'l Valkyrie is a chibified version of the original Valkyrie Cat. The same goes for Li'l Valkyrie Dark though her differing color palette to Valkyrie Cat means that she isn’t just a chibified copy of her.
     Legend Rare Cats 
The rarest tier of Cats, introduced in Version 8.0. They have a 0.3% chance of being drawn from appropriate Uber Rare sets.

The ones currently obtainable are Musashi Miyamoto (Sengoku Wargods Vajiras), Headmistress Jeanne (Cyber Academy Galaxy Gals), High Lord Babel (Lords of Destruction Dragon Emperors), Ushiwakamaru (Ancient Heroes Ultra Souls), Legeluga (Tales of the Nekoluga), Wonder Momoco (The Dynamites), Gaia the Creator (The Almighties), Doktor Heaven (Dark Heroes), Mighty Kristul Muu (Frontline Assault Iron Legions), Lumina (Elemental Pixies) Gaia the Creator (The Almighties). Kyosaka Nanaho (GirlsMons), and Emperor Cat (DynastyFest).

  • Arbitrary Minimum Range: Headmistress Jeanne and Kyosaka Nanaho have one.
  • BFS: Musashi Miyamoto wields two of them, with even the smaller sword being about nearly half as big as him.
  • Close-Range Combatant: In a stark contrast to the rest of their kind, Legeluga engages enemies from a rather short range of 300. While this makes it vulnerable to attack, the amount of DPS that it can pump out is nothing if not impressive.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Due to his single target attacks, Musashi Miyamoto is only really effective against black enemies who have a ton of HP and are strong enough to the point where they’re only spawned in all by themselves or in small groups (e.g. Bun Bun Black, Le’Noir, Two Can, Director Kurosawa). To be fair, this is somewhat alleviated by his multi-hit ability and fairly fast attack rate.
  • Critical Hit: Kyosaka Nanaho has a high chance of doing one.
  • Drop the Hammer: Ushiwakamaru's evolved form, Colossal Benkei, uses a massive jet powered hammer to attack.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors:
    • Musashi Miyamoto deals Insane Damage (i.e. 5x to 6x more damage) and is Resistant to Black enemies.
    • Headmistress Jeanne deals Insane Damage to Red and Floating enemies.
    • High Lord Babel is Insanely Tough (i.e. takes only 1/6 to 1/7 damage) against Red and Floating enemies.
    • Ushiwakamaru deals Insane Damage and is Resistant to Angel enemies.
    • Wonder Momoco's first attack will always freeze Red, Black, or Angel enemies.
    • Doktor Heaven is Insanely Tough against Black/Alien enemies, while her second form deals Insane Damage to them instead.
    • Mighty Kristul Muu deals Insane Damage and is Resistant to Zombies.
    • Lumina is Insanely Tough against Alien enemies and can Weaken them down to 50% of their original attack (50% chance in unevolved form, guaranteed in evolved form).
    • Gaia deals Insane Damage to any enemy with traits.
    • Kyosaka Nanaho is Insanely Tough against Metal, deals Critical Hits, has Zombie Killer, and breaks Barriers.
    • Emperor Cat can inflict various Standard Status Effects, but this ability doesn't work against traitless enemies.
  • Good Counterpart: Emperor Cat is one to Dark Emperor Nyandam, having a similar appearance and attack animation.
  • Last Chance Hitpoint: Kyosaka Nanaho can survive one killing blow at a guaranteed chance.
  • Long-Range Fighter: Emperor Cat attacks from a high range compared to other generalist Ubers, making up for his slightly below-average attack power.
  • The Maker: Gaia is said to be the origin of all life.
  • Mighty Glacier: Mighty Kristul Muu is ridiculously powerful against Zombies, with it being able to take down most Zombies in a few hits and take a ton of damage from them, but it has the slowest move speed in the entire game with it being tied with The Face. However, this is actually useful since this means that it can be used as a “base guard” of sorts against Zombies that have burrowed past most of your attackers and won’t move past Zombies that are about to revive.
  • No-Sell:
    • Babel is immune to Stop and Slow.
    • Momoco is immune to waves.
    • Legeluga is immune to every negative effect, including waves.
    • Mighty Kristul Muu blocks wave attacks and, in a roundabout way, Slow.
  • Magikarp Power:
    • Like the other Nekoluga units, Legeluga only becomes useful when it evolves.
    • Ushiwakamaru becomes much stronger when evolved. Zig-zagged, as the original form is still pretty useful.
  • Physical God: Even amongst their home banners, which are full of these, Babel and Jeanne are implied to be particularly powerful.
  • Power at a Price: Tyrant Cat's description states that his magical power came at a cost: a piece of his soul gets consumed with every battle.
  • Purposely Overpowered: Their stats are much higher than standard Uber Rares, befitting their rarity. They also tend to have much more powerful abilities.
  • Sadist Teacher: Jeanne is all but implied to be one. Considering that she's said to punish bad students with her energy spears, its no wonder all of the Cyber Academy's students respect her.
  • Shout-Out: Ushiwakamaru is based off of the legend of 'Minamoto no Yoshitsune. His evolved form is based on Yoshitsune's actual bodyguard.
    • Musashi Miyamoto is based off of the legendary Japanese swordsman of the same name.
  • Splash Damage Abuse: Momoco's first attack will always produce a fairly large shockwave. For added effectiveness, this helps carry her freeze effect across pretty much the entire stage.
  • Stone Wall: Babel has the highest base HP in the game at 255,000 and insane resistance against Floating and Red to reduce their damage to 1/6 to 1/7 of the original. With all the appropriate treasures, High Lord Babel has over 1.7 million health against his respective target type.
    • Lumina would later blow Babel out of the water - while she has a lot less base health, she also has the ability to halve the attack of Alien enemies. With her weaken and all treasures active, Lumina has the highest effective HP of all cats, clocking in at a whopping 1.9 million health against Aliens.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others:
    • Despite the fact that all the ubers in his set have area attacks, Musashi Miyamoto has single target attacks even though the enemies he is effective against (Black) usually come in hordes.
    • Despite Kyosaka Nanaho being the Legend Rare for GirlMons, she doesn't come from that game, instead coming from Kyoto Project.
  • Technicolor Death: Legend Rares have a unique death animation, where they transform into a rainbow-colored, crystalline wisp that flies away.

     Collaboration Cats 
"Cats" obtained through participation in collab events.

Survive! Mola Mola

Special Cats include: Meowla Meowla

Super Rares include: Baby Mola

Uber Rares include: Mola King

  • Achilles' Heel: Long Distance attacks, shockwaves, and surges will utterly crush Baby Mola and Mola King.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors: Meowla Meowla is resistant to Red enemies.
  • Long-Range Fighter: Both Baby Mola and Mola King hit decently hard from a long range, but will instantly die from any sort of damage.
  • One-Hit Point Wonder: Baby Mola starts off with just 1 HP, and that doesn't improve much as it levels up. Mola King's health pool isn't that much better.

Mr. Ninja

Special Cats include: Mr. Ninja

Metal Slug Defense


Super Rares include: SV-001, ALLEN O'NEIL

  • Retraux: Just like the style of their home game, all of them are rendered in pixel art.


Special Cats include: CPAC

Rare Cats include: PIKOTARO

Crash Fever

Special Cats include: Happy 100

Super Rares include: Belial

Uber Rares include: Mobius

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Super Rares include: Rei Ayanami, Asuka Langley, Mari Illustrious, Misato Katsuragi, Ritsuko Akagi, Rei Ayanami (???)

Uber Rares include: Eva Unit-00, Eva Unit-01, Eva Unit-02, Eva Unit-08, Shinji & Cat, Moon Operators, AAA Wunder

  • Critical Status Buff: Unit-02, Code 777, Eva Unit-02's True Form, gives it the ability to deal double damage upon dropping down to 33% HP. Considering its role as a Red nuker, reaching this state allows it to rip apart huge chunks of HP from the trait it targets, assuming you can keep it alive, that is.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors: In addition to their anti-trait abilities, most of them are also effective against the Eva Angel enemies that appear during the event.
  • Moveset Clone: Shinji & Cat, the Moon Operators, and AAA Wunder are event-themed versions of Baby Cat, The Death Moon, and NEK-0 Sky Fortress, respectively. They have similar stats, but target different traits.
  • Set Bonus: Together, Shinji and Kaworu can form the "You Will Find Happiness" combo, which massively strengthens the effect of the EVA Angel Killer ability.


     White/Colorless Enemies 
Enemies that lack a color. These are usually well-balanced enemies with no real strengths or weaknesses.

These include Doge, Snache, Those Guys, Gory, Hippoe, Jackie Peng, Master A, Le'boin, Teacher Bear, THE SLOTH, Camelle, R. Ost, Kory, Dober P.D., H. Nah, Ururun Wolf, Mr. Mole, Dolphina, Croakley, Codename: Red Riding, Hermit Cat, Mystic Mask Yulala, Master Uril, King Wahwah, etc.

  • An Axe to Grind: Kory uses a makeshift hatchet, while his more powerful variant, Berserkory, uses an actual axe.
  • Arbitrary Minimum Range: Codename: Red Riding, Mr. Mole, Dolphina, and Croakley have one.
  • Badass in Charge: King Wahwah is a monarch who earned his crown through his own military service and scientific breakthroughs. In combat, he's also one of the strongest bosses in the game who literally showers you with explosive energy arrows.
  • Bonus Boss:
    • King Wahwah and Doremi are the bosses of their own bonus stages and drop exclusive Cats.
    • Hermit Cat, Masked Yulala, and Master Uril are the bonus bosses of the Heavenly Tower, and must be defeated before they'll join you.
  • Critical Hit Class: R. Ost is one of two normal enemies (along with Capy) that can perform Critical Hits. With his fast attack rate, they tend to pile up a lot.
  • Defeat Equals Friendship: Ururun Wolf, Codename: Red Riding, Hermit Cat, Mystic Mask Yulala, and Master Uril can be recruited to your side after beating them. Of course, Redemption Demotion is in effect here.
  • Final Boss: Hermit Cat and Mystic Mask Yulala were the former final bosses of the Heavenly Tower. After the tower was extended to 50 floors, Master Uril became the new final boss.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Not having any traits may seem like a setback and most early White enemies are pushovers...but once late-game monsters like R. Ost, Dolphina, Mr. Mole, and Kory show up, it becomes evident that a lack of a trait means a lack of weaknesses. Even worse, cats that exclusively target traitless are either Ubers (the Epicfest Ubers), hard to get (Glass Cat, Lone Cat and Kitten, Dogumaru) or are hard to utilise properly (Filibuster Cat X).
  • Jack-of-All-Trades: They tend to be pretty well rounded.
  • Light Is Not Good: Even in a game with bizzare morality, they still are Always Chaotic Evil.
  • Locked Out of the Fight:
    • Croakley slows your cats for an entire minute should he hit them.
    • Mystic Mask Yulala can warp cats back a significant distance.
  • Rage Quit: Croakley is a competitive gamer who has a habit of using his tongue to hit the reset button if he loses.
  • Splash Damage Abuse: Kory, Hermit Cat, and Dober P.D. can fire wave attacks. The former two will do this at a 100% rate.
     Red Enemies 
Enemies that will usually have a lot of health, high damage, and very few knockbacks, making them hard to flinch. On the contrary, they tend to be quite slow and generally have the most weaknesses.

These include Pigge, B.B Bunny, One Horn, Sir Seal, Shy Boy (Red/Floating), Dark Emperor Nyandam, Li'l Nyandam, J.K. Bun Bun (Red/Floating), Bore, Capy, Ginger Snache, Berserkory, Red Cyclone (Red/Floating), Hackey, Professor A, Hannya, etc.

  • An Axe to Grind: Berserkory uses a bloodstained war axe.
  • Bonus Boss: Hannya, Red Cyclone, and Black Okame, being bosses of unique stages centered around them. They drop exclusive cats should you beat them.
  • Critical Hit: Capy is one of two normal enemies that can crit. Considering Capy's attack power is already one of the highest among enemies, pretty much nothing can survive a critical hit from Capy.
  • Defeat Equals Friendship: Li'l Nyandam can be recruited to your side after beating him. Of course, Redemption Demotion is in effect here.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors: Reds in particular have the short end of the stick when it comes to type matchups, as Anti-Red units are by far the most common.
  • Evil Mask: Hannya started out as a Shy Boy who wore one of these as a joke... only to transform into a flesh-eating demon. That can happen.
  • Mighty Glacier: Most of them are slow, have huge amounts of HP, deal tons of damage and don't get knocked back too often.
    • Lightning Bruiser: ...which makes Bore, J.K. Bun Bun and Shy Boy all the more unique due to their relatively fast movement speed.
  • Playing with Fire: Hackey shoots ultra-long-range fireballs that deal immense damage.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: They are primarily red in colors, and they are even nastier than standard enemies.
  • Slouch of Villainy: Nyandam is permanently in this position, even when he's attacking or is injured.
  • Splash Damage Abuse: Berserkory can fire a massive shockwave with each attack he lands.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Capy delivers incredibly damaging strikes constantly from a safe range, but can only strike one cat at a time.

     Black Enemies 
Enemies characterized by having massive speed, huge attack power, and fast attacks, but many knockbacks, making them easy to smack around.

These include Doge Dark, Gory Black, Shadow Boxer K., Bun Bun Black (Black/Floating), Assassin Bear, Director Kurosawah, Tackey, Razorback, Dark Otter, Two Can (Black/Red), Black Cyclone (Black/Floating), etc.

  • Arbitrary Minimum Range: Tackey has one.
  • Blown Across the Room: Black enemies in particular tend to get knocked back a lot more than your average enemy.
  • Bonus Boss: Black Cyclone, Bakoo, and Black Okame are the bosses of their own stages and can drop exclusive cats if you beat them.
  • Dark Is Evil: All of them are more Always Chaotic Evil compared to other enemies. Doge Dark and Assassin Bear are also outright stated to be professional assassins, and it's implied for Gory Black.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Subverted. They're attempting to stop the Cat Army from conquering the world, albeit for selfish reasons.
  • Fragile Speedster: They are usually very fast and deal enormous damage. However, their HP is usually only average, and they get knocked back a lot.
  • Purposely Overpowered: The Assassin Bear is the fastest unit in the game (boasting a movement speed of 150, twice the movement speed of the fastest cats in the game), attacks incredibly fast, and has an area attack with enough range to snipe nearly anything. While it has rather low damage and pitiful HP, heavily buffed Assassin Bears are spammed to guarantee a loss if you take too long on certain stages.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: They are predominantly black, with red eyes to boot.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: A trait shared by nearly all members of their group.
  • Splash Damage Abuse: Two Can is guaranteed to fire a deadly shockwave with each hit.
  • Stone Wall: Bun Bun Black is this among the Bun Bun variants, having the highest HP, but the lowest damage per hit.
  • Turns Red: Razorback can increase his damage at half health.

     Floating Enemies 
Enemies with no real specialties besides the fact that they float. Some enemies throughout the game can be Floating with another type, usually Red/Floating, Black/Floating, Alien/Floating, Relic/Floating...

These include Mooth, Owlbrow, Teacher Bun Bun, The Face, White/Red/Black Cyclone, The Perfect Cyclone, Brollow, Pigeon de Sable, The Cat God, Mecha-Bun, etc.

     Angel Enemies 

Lightning Bruisers with tons of health, deadly area attacks, insane speed, and halos. All in all, an enemy type not to be underestimated.

These include Gabriel, Heavenly Hippoe, Angelic Gory, Angelic Sleipnir, Chickful A, Sunfish Jones, Boraphim, Divine Cyclone, Cruel Angel Clionel, etc.

     Alien Enemies 
Teal-colored enemies that are rather strong and can toss out a lot of status effects. They have a passive 700% magnification that can only be reduced through treasures from Into the Future. They are the primary enemies in Into the Future.

These include Shibalien, Hyppoh, Helmut Krabbe, Kroxo, Maawth, Ursamajor, Scissoroo, Cyberhorn, Elizabeth the LV Ith, Le'Murr, Imperator Sael, Elder Sloth, Alpacky, Calamary (Alien/Floating), Mistress Celeboodle, Nimoy Bore, I.M. Phace (Alien/Floating), Galactic Overseer Nyandam, Bun Bun Symbiote (Alien/Floating), Cli-One (Alien/Floating), Corrupted Valkyrie (Alien/Floating), Raging Bahamut Cat (Alien/Floating), Cosmic Cyclone (Alien/Floating), Queen B (Alien/Floating), etc.

  • Achilles' Heel: Each chapter of Into the Future has two sets of treasures that will reduce their passive 700% magnification by 100% per treasure set fully completed. By collecting all 6 sets, you can reduce the magnification to 100% (however, normal magnification still applies.)
    • Like any other units, they are still weak to any units with Anti-Alien effects.
  • Aliens Are Bastards: Even more so than the Cat Army.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Scissoroo uses two shear-like gloves to attack. They fire lasers.
  • Bonus Boss: Queen B and Cosmic Cyclone are the bosses of their own special stages and aren't part of the story mode, but beating them allows you to unlock special cats.
  • Brick Joke: Mistress Celeboodle's description mentions that despite having it all, she married a chihuahua reality TV star. Come the ultra-difficult Bonus Boss King Wahwah, it's stated that he hates the fact that despite being a king, he's overshadowed by his kid brother, who happens to be a reality TV star.
  • Critical Status Buff: Alpacky's damage gets multiplied by ten when she's at 1% HP. At this point, while she can pretty much one-shot anything, chances are that she's already used her Last Chance Hitpoint and will die if so much as breathed on.
  • Elite Mooks: Much stronger variants of the standard enemies, courtesy of their raised stats, Standard Status Effects, and passive magnification.
  • Energy Weapon: Cli-One attacks with a long ranged laser burst.
  • Final Boss: Cli-One, Corrupted Valkyrie and Raging Bahamut Cat serve as the bosses of Into the Future Chapter 1, 2, and 3 respectively.
  • Last Chance Hitpoint: Helmut Krabbe and Alpacky have the ability to survive one lethal strike.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Many could qualify, but special mention goes to the Elder Sloth, which sextuples his predecessor's movement speed.
  • Mini-Boss: Halfway through Into the Future, you'll have to contend to either I.M. Phace, Galactic Overseer Nyandam or Bun Bun Symbiote in The Great Abyss, depending on what chapter you're in. Also, right before the Final Boss, you'll have to beat Nimoy Bore.
  • Splash Damage Abuse: Elizabeth and Bun Bun Symbiote can fire a shockwave attack, the former at a guaranteed rate, and the latter at a 5% rate.
  • Standard Status Effects: One of their specialties. Almost all of the aliens have the ability to hammer you with some kind of negative status effect. The ones that don't usually have the ability to give themselves a positive status effect when certain conditions are met.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Corrupted Valkyrie and Raging Bahamut Cat are these to Holy Valkyrie Cat and Awakened Bahamut Cat.
  • Turns Red: Ursamajor, Mistress Celeboodle, Corrupted Valkyrie and Cosmic Cyclone can increase their damage when their HP falls below a certain amount. Alpacky can do this too, but that's covered in Critical Status Buff above.
     Metal Enemies 
Enemies classified by silvery parts and green eyes. They have high attack, average speed, and low health, but they have a special trait that makes them take 1 damage from all attacks, except for criticals.

These include Metal Hippoe, Metal Doge, Metal One Horn, Super Metal Hippoe, Sir Metal Seal, Steel Snache, Mercury Sloth, CyberFace, Teacher Cybear, Metal Cyclone, Croconator, Koronium, etc.

  • Achilles' Heel: In addition to standard effects like slow and freeze, Metals are vulnerable to critical hits, as they're the only things that bypass their high defence. Chances are, any critical will be able to dispatch the majority of the metals.
    • In addition, the Waterblast Cat Cannon can deal damage to them based on a percentage of their current health. And while they are rare, units that can debuff Metals do exist.
  • Armored But Frail: Metal enemies don't tend to have a lot of health, but they only take 1 damage from most attacks, making them far more resilient than most enemies.
  • Bonus Boss: Metal Cyclone is one, being boss of its own stage and dropping a special cat.
  • Colour Coded Eyes: All standard Metals have glowing green eyes as a prominent trait.
  • Dummied Out: Teacher Cybear and Cyberface were actually in the game data for a while, but were never seen in the game. Averted when they were finally introduced into the game proper.
  • Elite Mook: Super Metal Hippoe and Sir Metal Seal, being the two most deadly metals with enough health to survive most critical strikes. Multiple successive crits are required to bring them down.
  • Fake Ultimate Mook: Cyber Face is ridiculously fast, deals enough damage to One-Hit Kill most cats several times over, delivers a huge shockwave 90% of the time, and only takes 1 damage from all attacks. The catch? It only has 299 HP, meaning a single crit from pretty much anything will do it in.
    • An even worse case is Teacher Cybear. He attacks twice a second, and deals 999,999 damage per hit... but also has single-target attacks, and just 50 health. Even without critical hits, he can be overwhelmed by a Zerg Rush of meatshields.
  • Luck-Based Mission: Due to the nature of the Metals, most fights with many of them will tend to feel like this since your success almost entirely depends on whether or not your unit crits. Taken Up to Eleven with the Metal Cyclone, which literally requires constant crit rates to beat.
  • No-Sell: While they obviously do this to standard attacks, they tend to be immune to status effects that would normally target all units.
  • Percent Damage Attack: The Waterblast cannon deals damage based off of their current HP, from 11% at Level 1 to 20% at Level 10.
  • Reality Ensues: Despite being a Cyclone, the Metal Cyclone rolls instead of flying due to its heavy weight, and as such is not classified as a Floating unit. However, this also makes it immune to the anti-floating units that most of the Cyclones are weak to.
  • Scratch Damage: They will take exactly 1 damage from any attack, unless it's a critical or the Waterblast cannon.
  • Stone Wall: They don't tend to have extraordinary high attack power, but make up for it with their incredible resilience.

     Zombie Enemies 
Purple, undead enemies that are much stronger than their normal counterparts, and give little money. Most of them have the ability to burrow underneath your units, and all of them have the ability to come back to life after dying once (or in some cases, indefinitely). Units with the Zombie Killer trait can permanently kill zombies regardless if they have used their revive or not.

These include Zoge, Znache, Zomboe, Zigge, Zory, Zir Zeal, Zang Roo, Zackie Peng, Zroco, Coffin Zoge, Zamelle, Lord Gravey, Miss Haka, Big Sal, Inumusha, Daboo of the Dead, Zyclone, etc.

  • Achilles' Heel: In addition to the standard units effective against them, Zombie Killer units can kill them permanently to cancel their revives. Also, the Holy Blast Cat cannon can deal damage to them based on their max HP, cancel their burrows, and freeze them in place.
  • Bonus Boss: Daboo of the Dead, Zyclone, and Death Angel Z-Onel, who are bosses of their own stages and drop special units.
  • Defeat Equals Friendship: Inumusha can be recruited to your side after beating him in "Multiversal Studios". Of course, Redemption Demotion is in effect here.
  • Dig Attack: Most zombies have the ability to burrow a certain distance underneath units in order to get behind your lines. Most can only do this once per life, but Big Sal in particular can do this indefinite times.
  • Elite Mook: Zombies tend to be far stronger than the units they're based after.
  • Everything's Deader with Zombies
  • Final Boss: Lord Gravey is the boss of Empire of Cats Moon when it is under Zombie influence. Miss Haka is boss of the second moon, and both of them are the bosses of the third one.
  • Glass Cannon: With a few exceptions, most burrowing Zombies don’t have too much health. However, nearly all of them do huge anounts of damage, attack quickly, and hit the most vulnerable Cats in the backline. Even among them, Zollow is a notable example, despite not burrowing; it has even less health than Brollow and slower speed, but its Toxic attacks let it kill any Cat with less than 40,000 HP in just one hit.
  • Mini Mook: Li'l Zyclone is a smaller, much weaker, faster version of Zyclone that can burrow.
  • No-Sell: Daboo of the Dead resists all negative status effects. He can, however, still be knocked back by the Sniper Cat powerup or the Cat Cannon.
  • Our Zombies Are Different
  • Reviving Enemy: The main gimmick of all Zombies is that after they’re killed, they’re reverted into a corpse that can be walked over by cats and, after some time has passed (the time it takes is different from enemy to enemy), will come back with a portion of their HP recovered, with the exception of some who can recover all of their HP (Zory, Zang Roo and Zyclone to name a few) or less than half (Daboo of the Dead). Normally, each zombie can only revive once, but there are some who have infinite revives, making them effectively unkillable unless you have a unit with the “Zombie Killer” ability land the killing blow, at which point their revive won’t take effect and they’ll die normally, or destroy the base before they revive.
  • Stone Wall:
    • Coffin Zoges do low damage but have very high HP and revive indefinitely.
    • Li'l Zyclone has extremely low damage, especially considering that it's a Cyclone, but it has among the highest HP of any burrowing Zombie and is Immune to Flinching. Its role is to burrow into your backlines and prevent Cats from getting to the front and attacking.
  • Zombie Apocalypse: After clearing Empire of Cats Chapter 1, Zombie Outbreaks can start occurring on various stages. Clearing these gives you Cat Food, higher treasure drop rates if you clear a specific set of stages, and if all zombies in one chapter are eradicated, a permanent max energy boost.
     Star-Alien Enemies 
Special versions of the aliens identified by a yellow star insignia. They have a passive 1600% magnification that must be lowered through treasures found in Cats of the Cosmos, where the Star-Aliens are most prominently found. Many of them have the ability to warp Cats a certain distance backwards, removing them from battle while they are being warped. In addition, most of them have barriers that must be broken before the enemy can take any damage.

These include Shibalien Elite, Star Peng, General Gregory, Le'Solar, Project A, Corporal Weyland, Spacefish Jones (Alien/Floating), Youcan (Alien/Angel), UltraBaaBaa, Kid Tappa, Ribbo, Mesocosmocyclone, Gardeneel Bros, Axolotly, Super Cosmic Cyclone, Filibuster Obstructa, etc.

  • Achilles' Heel: There are a number of treasures scattered throughout the Cats of the Cosmos chapter that will lower their magnification by 100% per set completed. Considering they start off ridiculously strong, you're going to need them.
    • Like the standard Aliens, they are just as susceptible to anti-Alien units, but they specifically are more vulnerable to units that can either stop warps or instantly shatter their barriers.
  • Arbitrary Minimum Range: Like his standard counterpart, Corporal Weyland has one.
  • Armored But Frail: UltraBaaBaa's barrier is almost indestructible without Cats with the Barrier Breaker trait, having a whopping 266,000 HP. However, UltraBaaBaa herself is one of the most fragile starred Aliens, only having as much HP unmagnified as the original Baa Baa. Le'Solar is a less extreme example, having a strong barrier, but lower HP than most other Le'boin variants.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Youcan is described as being "extra-confident" and extremely full of himself due to a lifetime of praise. To be fair, he's arguably one of the strongest Star-Aliens in the entire game.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: Youcan and UltraBaaBaa have a massive 266000 HP barrier, making it nearly impossible to break through brute force like you can with the others. Instead, you pretty much have to use a cat with Barrier Breaker.
  • Bonus Boss: Super Cosmic Cyclone and Everlord Wanwan are the bosses of their own stages and have nothing to do with Cats of the Cosmos. They can both drop their own exclusive units should you defeat them.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Spacefish Jones' description.
    A bioweapon bred by Space Doges for surprise attacks on Cat outposts. Invisible from the front, but since this game is in landscape mode, its stealth is not effective.
  • Deflector Shields: Most Star-Aliens have a Barrier (represented as a diamond-shaped red shield) that will make them immune to damage as long as it stands. In order to break it, you must break it with a single, big hit that can overcome its HP limit or use a cat with the Barrier Breaker trait, which can break it regardless of damage. The barriers vary in strength, from General Gregory's 6000 to Le'Solar's 40000, but special mention goes to Youcan and UltraBaaBaa, which have a barrier strength of 266,000.
  • Elite Mooks: Taken Up to Eleven: they are upgrades of the previous Elite Mooks, the Aliens.
  • Fake Ultimate Mook: Filibuster Obstructa. The game describes it as an "all-powerful lifeform", and it serves as the Bonus Boss of Cats of the Cosmos as a whole. When fought, it is overwhelmingly powerful statwise - packing 2 million HP and an attack that deals 1 million damage and spans the entire stage. The problem? Its attack takes 40 seconds to complete, and said attack will get interrupted every time it takes a mere 1/200 of its HP in damage.
  • Locked Out of the Fight: Warped cats are temporarily removed from battle.
  • Mini Mook: Mesocosmocyclone is a smaller, weaker, faster version of Super Cosmic Cyclone.
  • Nigh-Invulnerable: When a Star-Alien's Barrier is still up, they're this until you shatter it either with high-enough damage or a Barrier Breaker.
  • Overly Long Fighting Animation: Filibuster Obstructa’s attack animation consists of him charging up an energy ball, which soon starts sucking in planets to charge it up, before launching it to make a huge explosion. This take 40 seconds to execute. (For comparison, Super Galaxy Cosmo takes roughly 10 seconds for his attack animation to finish.)
  • Punny Name: Youcan's name means that whenever someone wants to call him, they have to say "you can!" No wonder why he's so overconfident...
  • Stone Wall: Kid Tappa has a respectable amount of HP and a strong barrier, but deals a pitiful amount of damage per hit and attacks incredibly infrequently. His role is solely to engage your cats and serve as a stationary wall.
  • Thinking Up Portals: A number of the Star-Aliens can generate portals to warp their targets back a certain distance. Gardeneel Bros and Mesocosmocyclone weaponize this further by warping cats forwards, potentially into more deadly backline enemies.
     Relic Enemies 
A new, more powerful enemy type introduced after clearing the Stories of Legend, unlocking the much harder Uncanny Legend Stages. Pretty much all of them come with the crippling "Ancient Curse" ability, which is capable of shutting off your Cats' special abilities that target enemies for a while. These guys are identified by dark-green/gray stone markings and gems.

These include Relic Doge, Relic Bun-Bun, Oldhorn, Othom (Relic/Floating), Sir Rel, Loris, M. Ost, Lowkey (Relic/Floating), Primeval Cyclone, Dogumaru, Queen Mother V etc.

  • All Your Powers Combined: Lowkey takes elements from nearly every prior Face variant and mashes them into a single enemy. It possesses Hannya's range and incredible amounts of HP, Shy Boy's attack speed, and The Face's few knockbacks and abysmal movement speed.
  • Bonus Boss: Primeval Cyclone and Queen Mother V are bosses of their own stages and beating them might get you a new cat.
  • Defeat Equals Friendship: Dogumaru and Urs & Fenrir might join you after clearing their respective stages. Of course, Redemption Demotion is in effect here.
  • Elite Mook: If you encounter a Relic variant of an enemy, chances are it's going to be the strongest variant of that enemy to exist. Even the Relic Doges have stats comparable to minor bosses.
  • Fragile Speedster: Sir Rel’s fast movement speed and attack speed, combined with his strong attacks, make it so that even one of them can tear through your meatshields with ease. However, he is easy to knockback through damage and is currently the one with the least health amongst them.
  • Mighty Glacier: Exaggerated by Oldhorn, a variant of One Horn, who has 2.4 million HP. For perspective, that is more than all of the Cyclones in their base stats and most of the advent bosses (with Cruel Angel Clionel having the same amount and Daboo of the Dead being the only one to have more health than him).
  • Power Nullifier: All Relic enemies come with the ability to inflict the Ancient Curse onto your cats. This debuff temporarily nullifies abilities that target traits (eg. Slow, Freeze, etc). The main way around this is to use cats that have immunity to the Ancient Curse.
  • True Final Boss: Idi:Re is the true final boss of Stories of Legend, and can only be fought after clearing every stage there on every star difficulty.
  • Turns Red:
    • The Primeval Cyclone can triple its attack power at half health to subvert its normally low attack stat.
    • Idi:Re's attack doubles at half health... not that it really matters, because its regular attack is already a One-Hit Kill.


How well does it match the trope?
