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 eight types; Green, Purple, Red, Blue, Yellow, Epic, Elder and Gold. The types in total are 15 kinds as below:

1.

Catfruit Seed as the lowest tier.

2.

Catfruit as the second tier.

Catfruit Stage Cycle

Each Catfruit colour 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 colour chapters appears. Ergo, there are five chapters for each colour 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:

Stages Explanation

Standard

Growing

Each chapter 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 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 Nothing
Stage 1 Hard 59.5% 30% 0.9% 9.6%
Stage 2 Expert 43.5% 45% 1.5% 10%
Stage 3 Insane 26% 60% 3% 11%
Catfruit Jubilee (from Hard) not rated 38% 27% 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.
  • Using a Treasure Radar will guarantee the best type of Catfruit available as a drop reward.

Catfruit Buffet

A gauntlet of all of the daily Growing stages. 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 the gauntlet costs only 500 energy, as opposed to the 1000 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 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.

The first stage is guaranteed to drop a full Epic Catfruit, while the second always drops an Epic Seed.

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. When five (it used to be ten) Catfruit Seeds of the same type are obtained you can elect to combine or 'grow' them into one Catfruit of the same colour.

Drawing small circles with your finger or holding it still on the screen for a short time will temporarily organize your Catfruit into as many as eight type separated clusters, dependent on how many types of seed/fruit you have.

Seeds position themselves in front of their corresponding Fruits, except for Epic Fruit/Seeds which do the opposite.

Exchange Catfruit for XP

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

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 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 it 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 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.
    • It is still possible to get slightly more Catfruit Items by having 127 and obtaining 2 from a stage, such as any growing stage that leads to Catfruit Jubilee.
  • 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 added to the game in version 8.6, but were unobtainable until version 9.1.
  • Elder Catfruit Seeds can only be exchanged for 5000 XP each, despite the Elder 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".
  • The Golden Catfruit is the only Catfruit which is not obtainable from a farming stage nor any stage in particular.
  • Currently, Gold Catfruit is the only Catfruit that doesn't have a seed counterpart.
