Matatabi img01.jpg

Catfruit (マタタビ Matatabi, Actinidia) is an item added in Version 5.0 of both The Battle Cats and Nyanko Daisensou. This item allows you to evolve certain Cat Units to their True Form using different amounts of Catfruit. The first sources of Catfruit are unlocked clearing the 3rd chapter of Empire of Cats.

Introduction

Catfruit is a drop-chance item obtainable by clearing related Growing Stages that appear in Legend Stages for a period of time. Catfruit is separated into two tiers of rarities, Seeds and Fruit, with nine different types: Green, Purple, Red, Blue, Yellow, Epic, Aku, Elder and Gold.

"The seed of a mystical fruit that helps Cats realize their True potential."

"A mystical fruit that helps Cats realize their True potential."

Each of the main five Catfruit colours has only one related map; each day, only one of these maps appears. Ergo, there are five chapters for each colour which fills five days in a week. The only exception is Catfruit Jubilee, which can appear randomly after completing a Growing stage. Other Catfruit types tend to have more peculiar schedules for their stages. Each map consists of enemies of certain type. The maps appear in a cycle as follows:

Gold Catfruit (not Seeds) can rarely be obtained as a Cat Shrine reward when donating 1,000,000 XP or at a guaranteed chance on your 30th 1,000,000 XP donation. Stage 49 of The Aku Realms also drops one when cleared for the first time.
The only source of Gold Catfruit Seeds as of 11.7 is Floor 30 of the Infernal Tower, which drops one.

Behemoth Stones

Behemoth Stones are a group of evolution materials associated with Behemoth Enemies and added in version 11.5. They can be obtained from the Behemoth Culling maps and from the Hunter's Map Enigma Stages. There are currently five different types: Purple, Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow. Unlike Catfruit, Behemoth Stones are not linked to specific traits and cannot be merged into higher tiers; otherwise, the only difference between Behemoth Stones and Catfruit is the cats that they can evolve. The description of a Behemoth Stone reads: "A stone that allows Cats to change their class. May come from a different dimension."

Stage Explanations

Standard

Each of the five main "Growing" maps consists of three stages of progressive difficulties. The higher the difficulty of the stage, the higher the tier, number or magnification of enemies/bosses. However, higher difficulties also have a higher chance to obtain a better tier of Catfruit and to face Catfruit Jubilee when the player clear the initial stage. Catfruit Jubilee does not allow the player to bring any items except for Speed Ups and forces the player to use the last formation from the previous stage, as it is a Continuation Stage. The chance of obtaining a Catfruit of any kind from the stages are as follows:

Stage Difficulty Chances
Seed Catfruit Epic Catfruit Nothing
Stage 1 Hard 59.5% 30% 0.9% 9.6%
Stage 2 Expert 43.5% 45% 1.5% 10%
Stage 3 Insane 27.2% 60% 2.8% 10%
Catfruit Jubilee (from Hard) Not rated 15% 50% 35% 0%
Catfruit Jubilee (from Expert) Not rated 9.5% 40.5% 50% 0%
Catfruit Jubilee (from Insane) Not rated 4.5% 25.5% 70% 0%
  • Entering Catfruit Jubilee does not use any energy, so always give it a try!
  • The drop rates in Catfruit Jubilee vary, depending on the stage it was accessed from (Hard, Expert, or Insane).
  • You can only obtain one drop per stage.

Catfruit Buffet

Catfruit Buffet combines all five of the main Growing stages into a single challenge. After beating one stage, you may enter the next, until all five Catfruit stages have been beaten. After that, you may enter Catfruit Jubilee. These stages can be played in Hard, Expert, or Insane difficulty. Entering Catfruit Buffet costs only 500 energy, as opposed to the 1,000 energy it would take to beat all 5 Catfruit stages individually.

Growing Strange

At first glance, Growing Strange only contains one stage, An Elder Secret. However, when the aforementioned stage is cleared, one of seven other levels will be accessible, similar to Catfruit Jubilee. Although they have the same difficulty rating, these stages are considered to be far more difficult than the first one. The first level contains every trait (excluding Aku and Relic), while the others contain one trait each. The chances for each type of drop are as follows:

Stage Difficulty Chances
Seed Catfruit
Stage 1 Merciless 0% 0%
Secret Merciless 99% 1%

Growing Epic

Growing Epic works somewhat like Growing Strange, with one main stage (Spectrum of Truth) followed by a single Continuation Stage: Miracle Iris, which has a 40% chance to appear.

This is the ONLY way to get an Epic Catfruit Seed outside of Heavenly Tower, Infernal Tower and certain Gauntlets.

Stage Difficulty Chances
Seed Catfruit
Stage 1 Deadly 0% 100%
Secret Deadly 100% 0%

Growing Evil

Growing Evil has four ordinary stages that get progressively harder. Unlike other Catfruit stages, these can only drop Seeds, with the final stage having a chance to drop two of them.

Stage Difficulty Chances
1 Seed 2 Seeds Nothing
Stage 1 Insane 5% 0% 95%
Stage 2 Deadly 10% 0% 90%
Stage 3 Deadly 100% 0% 0%
Stage 4 Merciless 80% 20% 0%

Catfruit Storage and Functions

Upon obtaining a Catfruit or Behemoth Stone, it will be saved in the Catfruit Storage.

You can access the Catfruit Storage by toggling the storage switch. The button is on the upper-right corner of the Storage screen and is only available after clearing certain requirements before!!

The Catfruit Storage has an interface that functions more or less the same as the Talent Orb Storage. To exchange evolution materials into XP or convert Seeds to Catfruit, one must tap on the desired Catfruit in the Catfruit Storage. When five Catfruit Seeds of the same type are obtained, you can elect to combine or 'grow' them into one Catfruit of the same color.

Exchanging Catfruit for XP

Catfruit and Behemoth Stones of any kind can be exchanged for XP, as detailed in the table below.

It should be noted that merging Seeds into Catfruit (with the exception of Epic and Gold Seeds) will always yield more XP than selling them individually.

Evolving Units Using Catfruit

The main usage of Catfruit and Behemoth Stones is to unlock certain units' True Forms. Each unit requires different amounts of evolution materials along with XP to evolve. The requirements for each relevant cat are listed in their respective wiki pages.

Most Cats use the most of the Catfruit colour which is obtained from defeated the enemy type they are strong against if applicable. Artist Cat → Ramen Cat is a good example. Artist Cat's evolutionary line is good against Angels as he resists their attacks, thus, Artist Cat needs the most amount of Yellow Catfruit to evolve as Yellow Catfruit is obtained by defeating Angels.

Trivia

  • There are actually 21 kinds of Catfruit; 3 of the types are not used in-game. When revealed in game, the unused types only show as white circle with kanji "仮" written over which means "temporary" in BCJP or as black boxes in other versions. When exchanged they give 500,000 XP each.
  • Prior to Version 11.4, the Catfruit Storage had the same interface as the Cat Storage and could only hold a maximum of 128 Catfruit items. Attempting to play a Catfruit Stage would result in the player getting a message saying that they must exchange Catfruit for XP/grow Catfruit Seeds.
    • It was possible to go slightly over the Catfruit limit by having 127 and obtaining 2 from a stage, such as any Growing stage that leads to Catfruit Jubilee or Heavenly Tower.
  • Prior to Version 6.9, growing Catfruit Seeds into Catfruit required 10 seeds instead of 5. This is the reason why seeds for normal fruits sell for 1/10 the XP and not 1/5.
  • Epic Catfruit Seeds were originally exclusive to the PC version, where their only purpose was to be grown into Epic Catfruit. Additionally, they had a slightly different design.
  • Epic Catfruit Seeds were added to The Battle Cats in Version 8.6, but were unobtainable until Version 9.1.
  • Elder/Aku Catfruit Seeds can only be exchanged for 5,000 XP each, despite the Elder/Aku Catfruit exchange rate being 500,000 XP. This could be an oversight since Epic Catfruit Seeds sell for 100,000 XP.
  • There is a typo in the Catfruit informational page, listing Epic Catfruit as "Uver rare" instead of "Uber rare".
  • Ironically, Epic and Gold Catfruit Seeds are rarer than their fully grown counterparts.
  • There was no such thing as Zombies when Purple Catfruit was added, hence why Growing Purple consists of Black enemies.
  • On the off chance you are able to obtain Elder Catfruit from Growing Strange before clearing the 3rd chapter of Empire of Cats, you will be able to unlock Stories of Legend drop units' True Forms without access to the Catfruit Storage. No other exceptions to this rule are known.
