Upon completion, Mecha-Bun can be upgraded to its True Form using Catfruit and XP. In addition, Legends can be hypermaxed to level 40 using Catseyes, while all other cats (except Normals and Metal Cat) can be hypermaxed to level 50 the same way.
- Relic Doges are spawned every so often to screw up the player's stalling.
- Relic Bun-Bun appears as a boss when the enemy base's HP reaches 99%.
- Relic Doges spawn randomly after Relic Bun-Bun spawns.
Keep in mind that the boss is not a Floating Enemy this time around, so using anti-Relic cats is highly recommended.
Recommended Ubers include Chronos, Mitama, Piccolan, Assassinlan 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 of range she outranges Relic Bun's omni 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 he doesn't have LD to pierce, his standing range is great, keeping him far away from Relic Bun. Freeze and weaken are both useful to keep Relic Bun in place as well. For non-uber counterpart there is Medusa Cat in the rare cat category which may be useful to the player if they do not have any of the said ubers.
Anything that can deal damage without draining your wallet or has reliable anti-relic effect will also work, Knockback isn't recommended as it can make slowers and weakeners miss Relic Bun Bun and melee units just feed in here.
Strategy 1 (Ft. Awakened Mina)
Use a similar stalling strategy to the Cyberpunk stacking strategy above. Stall the Relic Doges by weakening the current Doge, then taking it out with Maglev once the next Doge comes. Thaumaturge can help with the stalling. Make sure to lure the Doges close enough so that Awakened Mina doesn't hit the Doges. Once you have stacked a reasonable amount of Minas (around 3 to 4; also make sure they're desynced so they reliably perma-weaken the Bun-Bun). After you've attacked the base just start spamming everything. Maglev can chip, Ururun can have some good knockbacks, MKD can damage. Li'l Nyandam can slow. Thaumaturge, Mina, and your meatshields should do a good job stalling the Bun Bun. No need for 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!
If you have Rodeo cat, this becomes super easy with his relic target trait. It only costs 50 NP so if you have 50 NP and have it in his true form, get it! It'll make the level a whole lot easier plus, you only need to send 1 Cyberpunk out, not 2 or 3, just 1. Instead, we stack Rodeos! Just stall the 1st relic doge until the other 3 relic doges come out. Slowly kill them 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 stack of Rodeos and with the help of Cyberpunk! Eventually Relic Bun Bun will die and you win the level!
Strategy 3 (Ft. Modern Cat)
This strategy may also be used in 2 stars
Lineup: Hyper Mr, Necro Dancer Cat, Skelecat, Kite Cat, Kotatsu Cat, Modern Cat (Lv40), Thaumaturge Cat (Lv30), Manic King Dragon Cat (Lv30), Awakened Mina (Lv30, can be replaced with Rodeo Cat or Medusa Cat if you don't have her TF), Cyberpunk Cat (Lv30).
Master Uril can be used in place of another cat to aid in this stage if available.
Items: None (Rich Cat if you have trouble with startup)
This is a pretty straightforward strategy, consisting on 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 from pushing to your Thaumas. Start out deploying Modern Cats, and send in a few Thaumas and MKDs so the Relic Doge group doesn't end up eating your base. Make sure to save Money to get out Mina/Rodeo before hitting the base. Keep Cyberpunk ready for when Relic Bun begins to push, and make sure to keep a proper MKD flow. Once he is weakened, victory is ensured as long as your Thauma stack keeps him weakened.
Strategy 4 (2-star)
Difficulty has severely ramped up in 2-star, with the Doges now being extremely difficult to stall. Because of this, the usual Cyberstacking strategy will not work here.
The basic strategy here is similar to Strategy 3. However, Uril and Ururun should be added as additional support and MKD should be replaced with Slapsticks. Modern will not do as your only meatshield, so add in Dual Erasers and a Metal Cat 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. After you do that, stack Rodeos, Thaumas, 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.

- This is one of the only stages in the game that has a chance of rewarding a Treasure Radar, the others being Villains Jungle and Unkept Promises.
