Body & Soul (心と体、繋ぐもの Kokoro to Karada, Tsunagu Mono, What Connects the Mind and Body) is the 27th sub-chapter of Stories of Legend. It is available up to 4★ difficulty.
Half of the stages are easy enough, but the others can be extremely difficult, especially if you're underleveled. Many of these stages are enemy-spam. They require certain cats, a specific strategy to overcome these challenges, and determination. The player will also need all Anti-unstarred Alien Treasures and Bahamut Cat's True Form, as without them it will be nearly impossible to beat Cursed Blizzards and Sign of the Cat.
- 2★ difficulty for this sub-chapter multiplies enemy strength magnifications by 120%.
- 3★ difficulty for this sub-chapter multiplies enemy strength magnifications by 140%.
- 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 enemies.
- Mr. Mole: An uber-long distance attacker with a great deal of health, and the ability to knockback cats.
- Not their first introduction but enemies from Into the Future Chapter 3 are introduced here.
