YMMV / The Battle Cats

Go To

The troping begins!

  • Anti-Climax Boss: The Face and Dark Emperor Nyandam are both relatively easy to defeat for beginners, mostly due to being Damage Sponge Bosses with pathetic movement and attack speed, more than overcompensating for their devastating long-ranged attacks. Nyandam can become very painful if you can't destroy his One Horns quickly, though.

  • Discredited Meme: Archer Cat, thanks to this video.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: the Nekolugas have a lot of fans for their terrifying designs and unique mechanics compared to other Ubers, being the slowest yet strongest Ubers in the game by a longshot in both aspects.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: This video has someone fighting a 100,000% magnified Hippoe and an 80,000% magnified Pigge they hacked into a level. Come version 6.7.0 and along with it the Stories of Legend sub-chapter “Beyond the Savannah,” and the third stage, The Noble Tribe, contains a Hippoe magnified by 120,000%.
  • Scrappy Mechanic: Treasures, more specifically getting the individual pieces to activate or upgrade a treasure. While the treasures themselves are super helpful and will carry you until the end of the game, trying to get them is a slog as it’s completely random if you would get a piece of the treasure set at all; there are cases where one has played the same stage for a long time only to get the Inferior rank of the piece (the most common treasure rarity you can get). While you can ignore some until you really need them (Anything related to the Cat Cannon, Cat Base health, Increased Xp drops), some are so important These include  that missing even one Superior in an all superior set can mean the difference between losing the stage and winning it.
    Lucas IV: [Treasure] is both the blessing and the curse of this game. Mostly the latter.
  • Self-Imposed Challenge: A popular challenge players give themselves is to do levels No Gacha, which means they cannot use any units which they got from the Rare Cat Capsule.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: Don't let the game's concept of cute cats taking over the world fool you. This game has quite a few characters that drink alcohol, make a reference to flashing people for their attacks, and look less like cats and more like almost naked humans. Not to mention this game has quite a bit of graphic violence and mature themes. Just because it says "Cat" in the title doesn't mean you should let your kid play it. Seriously, don't do that. It'll seriously screw up your kid's mind.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: This game is strange in just about every way, from the units to the descriptions.


How well does it match the trope?
