Above & Below (雲泥温泉郷 Undei Onsenkyō, Contrasting Hot Spring Village) is the 39th sub-chapter of Stories of Legend that was added in update version 6.1 of Nyanko Daisensou on May 18th, 2017. It is available up to 4★ difficulty.
Very hard overall, with the penultimate stage being quite easy (it can be defeated by spamming Manic Lion Cats and Maglev Cats), but the final stage compensating for it. This sub-chapter continues the trend of stages that mostly consist of one type of enemy.
- 2★ difficulty for this sub-chapter multiplies enemy strength magnifications by 120%.
- 3★ difficulty for this sub-chapter multiplies enemy strength magnifications by 130%.
- 4★ difficulty for this sub-chapter makes no change to enemy strength magnifications and only allows Special Cats and Rare Cats to be deployed.
This sub-chapter introduces one new enemy:
- Cala Maria: An Angel variant of Calamary. This enemy does three consecutive attacks that deal 36,000 damage each, for a total of 108,000 damage! Fortunately, her attacks are single-target.
