Her tale is one of liberation. Her tail is pink.

Blade Kitten is a webcomic by "Space Captain" Steve Stamatiadis and a 2D sidescrolling platformer developed by Krome Studios, whom Stamatiadis is co-founder and Creative Director of. It follows the adventures of a Cat Girl Bounty Hunter named Kit Ballard.

The game starts off with Kit taking a bounty on Hollow Wish only to have her breaker key (needed for her bounty work) stolen and her ship blown up.

Not to be confused with Blade Bunny, or with fellow Cat Girl Maeve from Paladins (who also has pink hair, and looks uncannily similar to Kit).

Tropes:

  • All Just a Dream: One level takes place in a nightmare Kit has.
  • And Your Reward Is Clothes: 100% completion in the game earns you a costume that turns Kit into "one of the most wanted Felions in the galaxy".
  • Animesque: Has a Japanese-influenced art style and uses several Anime and Manga tropes such as Luminescent Blush and of course, cat girls.
  • Cats Have Nine Lives: As a reference to this trope, you get an Achievement if Kat bites the big one nine times in a level.
  • Cutscene Incompetence: A lot of the early stages could've been avoided if Kit had just tackled Justice to the ground.
  • Leet Lingo:
    • "OMG" and "Noob" frequently appear in the webcomic.

    • "Win get!"
    • The Crimson Lance... err, Sollers use this a lot in the game. See 'Situation Oscar Mama Golf' and the similar 'Code: Sierra Oscar Lima'. Around the middle of the game, a Sol commander issues a 'Code Whiskey Tango Foxtrot' to his men after receiving a message Kit delivers.
  • Mood Whiplash: In the game. One moment you're storming a colorful castle and the next you are in Lovecraft Country. The level after is like this as well, featuring Kit within a nightmare involving fighting and surviving against an endless horde of Darques. Then it's right back to being colorful.
  • Non Standard Game Over: In episode 2, getting latched onto by a Draug parasite and failing to get it off in time results in you becoming a mindless Draug soldier. You even get an achievement for it!
  • Pardon My Klingon: "Falterdan" is apparently a very naughty word in the Blade Kitten universe.

  • Unusual Euphemism: Falterdan and NOINK (NOINK stands for NO Idea Noob Kid.)
  • Wall Crawl: Kit can scale most walls and even "walk" (with her forelimbs) along ceilings. While she can't climb metallic walls the normal way, she can combine it with jumps to compensate.
