Catfruit Jubilee (奇跡の虹マタタビ Kiseki no Niji Matatabi, Miracle of the Rainbow Actinidia) is a special stage that, when cleared, can drop a Catfruit or Catfruit Seed at a 100% chance and has a higher chance for an Epic Catfruit.
The stage is special because unlike most stages in which you enter the stage by selecting it, you will be asked if you would like to play the stage on random chance after clearing any other Catfruit Stage besides Growing Strange and Growing Epic. It has a 5% chance to appear in Hard stages, a 10% chance in Expert stages and a 15% chance in Insane stages. If the player selects Catfruit Buffet and completes all the stages (from Green Envy to Rays of Gold) they will effectively always have the option to attempt this stage.
Throughout the stage the player will be attacked by a variety of enemies, most notably a Kory and a Metal Hippoe. This makes it difficult to make a loadout to specifically beat the stage. Strength magnification however is minimal, so even if your lineup is less than suited to one of the specific enemy types involved, it can still be beaten with a moderately strong team.
Doge Dark and Gabriel are sent out at the beginning to rush the player. Overtime, other foes will spawn (though some foes will automatically be sent out if the base is hit). The last foes to appear are Scissoroo and then Kory with a boss shockwave.
Once the player has struck the enemy base, Owlbrow, St. Pigge the 2nd, Angelic Gory and Dark Otter will appear, then Scissoroo a little later. Metal Hippoe will also spawn. Finally, Kory spawns as a boss and the main threat. Kory will be the last enemy to spawn other than the peons. Be cautious, as an unprepared player can be defeated very easily at the start. No Battle Items are allowed in this stage.
Since there are Aliens in this level, the player needs to have at least 200% anti-Unstarred Alien Treasures. 400% is enough to do deal with the Scissoroos, otherwise Cat Units with anti-Alien abilities such as Slow or Stop are needed.
Lineup: Mohawk Cat, Crazed Wall Cat, Dark Cat, Macho Leg Cat, a cat that cannot be spammed (e.g., Jamiera Cat) and any appropriate Uber Rares, or Bahamut Cat and Ururun Wolf if you have none. Additional slots can be filled with Critical Hitters and other useful cats (Octopus Cat is particularly useful).
- The Ubers should all have Area Attack and some range (Sanada Yukimura and the like excluded).
At the very beginning, upgrade your Worker Cat once, then send out a Crazed Wall Cat. Let the Doge Darks come out and reach the Cat Base. Once they are all lined up, send out a Jamiera Cat. Once he defeats all the Doge Darks, upgrade your Worker Cat as much as you can with the money you just got (preferably to level 5). Start sending out Mohawk Cats and Crazed Wall Cats. Once Jamiera defeats the Gabriels, you can send out one of your Ubers or Bahamut (if you are using Yukimura, don't send him out yet). Once the enemy base is damaged, let Jamiera defeat all the Doges and then send out another Uber/Bahamut Cat. At this point, keep sending out everything, but make sure you send out Jamiera as much as possible. Hopefully, by the time Kory comes out, you have dealt with everything else (except the Metal Hippoe). This part is where Jamiera is extremely helpful. Keep sending out your meatshields and Jamiera. Jamiera can tank Kory and Metal Hippoe long enough for you to send out another Jamiera. If you want, you can continue to send out Ubers (they won't be very helpful though). Metal Hippoe will die first, and after that, Kory is essentially dead. Take him out, and then proceed to win the stage.
Strategy 2 (ft.Octopus cat)
For this strategy, you only need 200% anti-unstarred alien treasures
Lineup: three 75-150¢ meatshields, artist cat (lv25), octopus cat (true form required), cyborg cat (true form not required, but must be lv25+), castaway cat (lv22), drama cat (lv22), hacker cat (lv25) or a generalist uber eg. amaterasu (lv18), crazed bahamut cat (lv30).
First upgrade your worker cat once. Then deploy your meatshields and a paris cat. Make sure that you do not reach the enemy base too early. This should stall the doge darks and gabriels. Once you get close to the enemy base, deploy everything except castaway and octopus cat. Hopefully, your crazed bahamut (and uber) will land a shot on the dark otters. Then, your support units should quickly finish them off. Once they are dead, spawn your castaway and eventually octopus cats. Make sure you kill the dark otters before the scissoroos spawn, otherwise it is difficult to hold them off. From now on, you should get a lot of money to spawn everything whenever it's available and upgrade your worker cat. Make sure that you kill the scissoroos quickly. This should be easy if they don't have support. When the kory spawns, the scissoroos should be dead, and the octopus cats can make it a joke, since it doesn't have wave attack. Then, proceed to win the stage (and hopefully get an epic catfruit).
There are three possible treasures that can be obtained after beating this stage:
The color of Normal Catfruit and Catfruit Seed received depends on the Catfruit event the player is playing (Growing Blue = Blue Catfruit).
^The chances are based around Hard/Expert/Insane Growing Stages.
- Catfruit Jubilee will have one of three different backgrounds (day, evening, or night), depending on whether or not you entered the Jubille through a Hard, Expert, or Insane Catfruit level.
- This is the first-ever Continuation Stage.
