Battle Cats Wiki

An Ancient Curse is the first stage in Uncanny Legends and the only stage in A New Legend. Relic Doge and Relic Bun-Bun are introduced here. This is a No Continues stage.

Upon completion, Mecha-Bun can be upgraded to its True Form using Catfruit and XP. In addition, Legend Cats can be hypermaxed to Lv.40 using Catseyes, while all other cats (except Normals, Metal Cat, JRA Cats and the Heartbeat Catcademy cats) can be upgraded to Lv.50 the same way.


  • Infinite Relic Doges spawn after 6.67 seconds200f, delay 60~80 seconds1,800f~2,400f.
  • 1 Relic Doge spawns after 26.67 seconds800f.
  • 1 Relic Doge spawns after 30 seconds900f.
  • 1 Relic Doge spawns after 33.33 seconds800f.
  • When the base reaches 99% HP:


The first thing you need to take into consideration when forming a strategy is that unlike Mecha-Bun, Relic Bun-Bun is not a Floating enemy. Bring whatever anti-Relic Cats you can, because Relic Bun-Bun will push like a Cyclone if you have nothing that can stall it. Talented Rodeo Cat, Thaumaturge Cat and Modern Cat are some of the more viable options from the Rare category; and Bad-Luck Ebisu and Cyberpunk Cat for the Super Rares, of whom they outrange Relic Bun-Bun and can debuff it. Other than that, a level 20+61 Eraser Cat and level 40 Manic Eraser Cat have just enough health to withstand two hits from the boss, but it can be beaten with lower levels.

Recommended Uber Rare Cats include Chronos the Infinite, Mitama the Oracle, Piccolan Pasalan, Assassinlan Pasalan and other similar units - useful crowd controllers overall, each of them having their pros and cons here. While Mitama's slow has very high uptime, the amount that she outranges Relic Bun's Omni Strike by is low, and, once cursed, she's good as dead.

Chronos has freeze, which is more helpful to keep meatshields alive and has higher standing range, so she isn't as risky to bring on, as well as lower cost; however, her uptime is lower. Then there's Piccolan: while it doesn't have Long Distance to pierce, his standing range is great, keeping it far away from Relic Bun-Bun. Freeze and weaken are both useful to keep Relic Bun in place as well. However, you must stack Piccolans on the first Relic Doges, otherwise Piccolan's low uptime will render it useless; note that it takes 300 seconds to spawn a new Piccolan, so bring a Speed Up.

Overall, anything that can deal decent damage without draining your wallet or has a reliable anti-Relic debuff will work; knockback isn't recommended as it can make slowers and weakeners miss Relic Bun-Bun, and melee units just march to death here.

Strategy 1 (ft. Awakened Mina)

Lineup: Eraser Cat, Manic Eraser Cat, Zamboney Cat, Metal Macho, Thaumaturge Cat, Awakened Mina, Schoolbus Nyandam, Maglev Cat, Ururun Cat, Manic King Dragon.

Use a similar stalling strategy to Yohane's Cyberpunk strategy. Stall the Relic Doges by weakening the current Doge, then taking it out with Maglev once the next Doge comes. Thaumaturge can help with stalling them. Make sure to lure the Doges close enough so that Awakened Mina doesn't hit them. Once you have stacked a reasonable amount of Minas (around 3 to 4; also make sure they're desynced so they reliably perma-weaken Relic Bun-Bun).

After you've attacked the base, just start spamming everything. Maglev can chip, Ururun can have some good knockbacks, Manic King Dragon can damage. Schoolbus Nyandam can slow. Thaumaturge, Mina, and your meatshields should do a good job stalling the Bun Bun. No need for Battle Items unless you're lazy. The Cat CPU can help with spawning everything. Rich Cat won't help you much as you'll eventually get max money after the stalling anyway. Speed Up is fine if you don't want to wait, might want to use CPU with Speed Up due to the fact that you might be late on meatshield spamming. Good luck!

Strategy 2 (ft. Talented Rodeo)

Lineup: Manic Mohawk Cat, Manic Eraser Cat, Eraser Cat, Thaumaturge Cat, Manic Macho Legs, Maglev Cat, Rodeo Cat, King Dragon Cat, Manic King Dragon and Cyberpunk Cat

For the most part, the level will play out the same as indicated in strategy 1; however, now you have a more reliable debuffer.

Rodeo Cat's Target Relic Talent only costs 50 NP, so unlock it as soon as you can! It'll make the level a whole lot easier plus, you only need to send one Cyberpunk out, not two or three, just one. Instead, we stack Rodeos! Just stall the first Relic Doge until the other three Relic Doges come out.

Slowly kill the Relic Doges with Manic Macho Legs and Maglev if it gets too much. Once they're all dead, send out everything and and watch as Relic Bun-Bun get slowed forever because of your Rodeos and Cyberpunk! Eventually Relic Bun-Bun will die and you'll win the level!

Strategy 3 (Up to 2 Crowns)

Lineup: Biohazard + Bony Bone, Horror Movies, Modern Cat 40, Thaumaturge Cat 30, Manic King Dragon 30, Crimson Mina 30 (Can be replaced with Twintail Medusa Cat if you don't have its True Form).

Items: None (Rich Cat if you have trouble with startup)

This is a pretty straightforward strategy, consisting of using Modern Cat as your major meatshield while using Manic King Dragons to kill the Relic Doges and weaken/slow to protect your stack from Bun Bun. Having even one Cyberpunk out is very helpful as it can prevent Relic Bun-Bun from pushing to your Thaumaturges. Start out deploying Modern Cats, and send in a few Thaumaturges and Manic King Dragons so the Relic Doge group doesn't end up eating your base. Make sure to save money to get Mina/Rodeo out before hitting the base. Keep Cyberpunk ready for when Relic Bun-Bun begins to push, and make sure to keep a proper Manic King Dragon flow. Once Relic Bun-Bun is weakened, victory is ensured as long as your Thaumaturge stack keeps it weakened.

Everything should play out the same as above strategies if your units are sufficiently upgraded.

Strategy 4 (2 Crowns)

Difficulty has severely ramped up in 2-Crown, with the Relic Doges now being extremely difficult to stall. Because of this, the usual Cyberpunk-stacking strategy will be incredibly difficult to do without a level 50 Manic Eraser Cat and Jellycat.

The basic strategy here is similar to Strategy 3. However, Mystic Uril and Awakened Ururun should be added as additional support and Manic King Dragon should be replaced with Slapstick Cats. Modern Cat will not do as your only meatshield, so add in dual Erasers and optionally Metal Macho as additional support.

Your main goal is to send out Uril when possible, since he can stall the Relic Doges by himself relatively easily. After that, send out Mina and Ururun. Thereafter, stack Rodeos, Thaumaturges, and Slapsticks. You should hit the base going in with a large stack. After that, it's a long endurance battle to beat down Relic Bun Bun's 4.5M hp.


  • Replace Uril as soon as he dies; this strategy relies on him.
  • Prioritize sending out Slapsticks unless your Thauma/Rodeo stacks die, in which case, prioritize them instead. Slapsticks will serve as your main attackers.
  • Make sure Relic Bun-Bun does not push. Keep your stacks in check, and focus on your meatshielding.

Strategy 5 (4 Crown, no Idi)

Lineup: Rodeo Cat (Target Relic), Future Cat 40, Mystic Uril, Thaumaturge Cat, Tea Master Cat.

Optional additions are Boulder Cat for extra meatshielding, Awakened Mina for extra damage, etc.

Future Cat should tank 5 hits from Relic Doge, so use it and Tea Master Cat to stall and kill all but one Relic Doge, which can be stalled for cash. As long as you have enough money to send out Mystic Uril (along with Awakened Mina), just send them out while spamming all of the cats in your lineup. Mystic Uril should permaslow Relic Bun-Bun, giving Thaumaturge Cat the chance to permaweaken it, and it won't be able to punch through your constant stream of Future Cats. Whittle down its health and you have yourself an easy victory.
