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 Special Cats, Rare Cats, Super Rare Cats, and Uber Rare Cats to their True Form using different amounts of Catfruit. This feature is only unlocked after clearing the 3rd chapter of Empire of Cats.

Introduction

Catfruit is a drop-chance item obtainable by clearing related Growing stages which appear on certain days only in a weekly cycle. Catfruit is separated into two tiers of rarities. They are separated into six types; Green, Purple, Red, Blue, Yellow, Epic, and Elder. The types in total are 14 kinds as below:

1.

Catfruit Seed as the lowest tier.

2.
Catfruit as the second tier.

Catfruit Stage Cycle

Each Catfruit color has only one related chapter which appears in Legend Stages as a special chapter for a period of time; each day, only one of the color chapters appears. Ergo, there are five chapters for each color which fill five days in a week. The only exceptions are Catfruit Jubilee which can appear randomly after completing a Growing stage, along with Elder Catfruit, which is received from Growing Strange. Each chapter consists of enemies of certain type. The chapters appear in a cycle as follows:

Green actinidia

Stages Explanation

Standard

Growing

Each chapter consists of three stages of progressive difficulties. The higher the difficulty of the stage, the higher the tier of enemies/bosses. They will also spawn faster and have higher strength magnifications. However, higher difficulties also have a higher chance to obtain a better tier of Catfruit and chance to face Catfruit Jubilee should 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
Stage 1 Hard 85% 30% 9%
Stage 2 Expert 79% 45% 13%
Stage 3 Insane 68% 60% 22%
Catfruit Jubilee (from Hard) not rated 100% 77% 35%
Catfruit Jubilee (from Expert) not rated 100% 81% 50%
Catfruit Jubilee (from Insane) not rated 100% 85% 70%
  • 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.
  • Using a Treasure Radar will guarantee a Catfruit as result. But if the player is eligible, it is still possible to obtain a higher tier of reward(s).

Catfruit Buffet

Same as the general, though has 3 stages. You will face the stages in the daily order on weekdays. After that, you enter Catfruit Jubilee at 100% chance. Each stage uses up 500 energy. 2 times efficient than doing the stages normally! (each uses up 200) The stages are in Hard, then, Expert last, Insane. (NOT in continuation levels)

Growing Epic

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

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

Growing Strange

At first glance, Growing Strange only contains one stage, An Elder Secret (Merciless). 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 Relic), while the others contain one trait each. The chances for each type of drop are as follows:

Stage Difficulty Chances
Seed Catfruit Epic Catfruit
Stage 1 Merciless 0% 0% 0%
Secret Merciless 100% 1% 0%

Catfruit Storage and Functions

Upon obtaining a Catfruit, it will be saved into 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 and functions more or less the same as the Cat Storage. To exchange Catfruit into XP or convert Seeds to Catfruit, one must tap on the desired Catfruit in the Catfruit Storage. With 5 of the same type of Catfruit Seeds, you can combine them into a Catfruit of the same color. Holding your finger on the screen will temporarily organize your Catfruit.

Catfruit of any kind can also be exchanged into XP: Catfruit Seeds can be exchanged for 5000 XP, Catfruit for 50000 XP and Epic Catfruit for 500000 XP.

Evolving Units Using Catfruit

The main usage of Catfruit is to unlock certain units' True Forms if available, which requires Catfruit. Each unit requires different amounts of Catfruit along with XP to evolve. The requirements for each relevant cat are listed in their respective wiki pages.

Different units require different amounts and types of Catfruit. Most Cats use the most of the Catfruit color 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 — it resists their attacks. As thus, Artist Cat needs the most amount of Yellow Catfruit to evolve as Yellow Catfruit is obtained by defeating Angels.

Trivia

  • The Catfruit is often called "Actinidia Fruit" in English prior official naming since the Japanese translation and its shape resembles so.
  • There are actually 17 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 500000 XP each.
  • The Catfruit Storage can hold a maximum of 128 Catfruit items. Attempting to play a Catfruit stage will result in the player getting a message saying that they must exchange Catfruit for XP/grow Catfruit Seeds.
  • Prior to version 6.9, growing Catfruit Seeds into Catfruit required 10 seeds instead of 5.
  • Epic Catfruit Seeds were added to the game in version 8.6, but were unobtainable until version 9.1.
  • There is a typo in the Catfruit informational page, listing Epic Catfruit as "Uver rare" instead of "Uber rare".
