Basically a faster and stronger version of Gabriel, Brollow flies at extreme speeds, has low health, and deals high damage that can easily break through your defenses in numbers.
Brollow's high knockback count and low health makes groups of them deadly, as a few hits from meatshields like Mohawk Cat and Crazed Macho Cat can easily knock them back. Take note that they don't have an actual attack cooldown, they only have delayed attacks due to their backswing. Thus, the more they get knocked back, the more damage they cause to your defenses. This makes fast-attacking, low damaging units like Crazed Giraffe Cat much less favorable.
Avoid using the default Cat Cannon against Brollows, as it will cause them to all attack again (think Awakened Bahamut Cat or Sanada Yukimura being hit after they land a blow). High numbers of hits per second is very bad against them, but powerful single blows from semi-spammable, bulky and heavy-hitting cats like Jamiera Cat, Cameraman Cat, Island Cat and Crazed Whale Cat work well against small groups of Brollows. However, for large flocks of Brollows, more expensive Area Attackers may be required, such as Ururun Cat.
Incidentally, D'artanyan's Normal Form's blind spot does not include Brollows, who will rest at the 150 mark instead of 140. This means that, in theory, D'artanyan can obliterate Brollows, though it is better to have meatshields take hits instead of D'artanyan.

- His Japanese name, Tsubamenzu, contains the word tsubame, meaning "swallow" (as in the bird).
- The phrase, "DO YOU EVEN LIFT???" in his description is a reference to a meme of the same name.
- He outspeeds all Cat Units, including Bullet Train Cat.
- He is the second-fastest enemy in the game, beaten by Assassin Bear.
- His design takes inspiration from several different birds:
- He is mainly based off of the swallow, a type of bird well known for its black coat and v-shaped tail. Swallows are also a symbol of good luck, fidelity in marriage and fertility in Japanese culture.
- He closely resembles a gannet, known to be the "missile bird".
- He is additionally based off of the common swift, the world's fastest bird in horizontal flight, which can be clearly seen as Brollow moves forward. It also has a shorter, smaller v-shaped tail, though it is still noticeable. Another similarity between Brollow and the swift: the wings are slightly more forward on the body than they are on a swallow.
