This article is about the Cat Unit. For the enemy unit, see Heavy Assault C.A.T (Enemy).

Cats in a Box is a Special Cat that can be purchased for 90 Cat Food in the Upgrade Menu after completing Egypt in Empire of Cats Chapter 1. True Form decreases movement speed, but gains increased range and the ability to weaken Black Enemies.

Strategy/Usage

  • These cats are sufficient due to their high damage output and speed in which it can reach the area of conflict.
  • One might want to send three or more Giraffe Cats (or one Sushi Cat) to back the Cats in a Box up while they deal heavy damage to enemies.
  • Sending out tanky units such as Tank Cat or Bronze Cat is inefficient because the Cats in a Box will greatly outspeed such units and have low range, breaking the point of this strategy.
  • The Cats in the Box are very helpful for beginners, and possibly later, but can easily be killed in late-game.
  • These cats are very good at clearing a bunch of peons protecting a boss.
  • These cats are good against Camelle or Master A. because of the quick attack animation, fast movement and Area Attack.
  • A good lead off to deal damage to the enemy base.
  • Their True Form might be very useful against some Black enemies that have short range, making meatshields able to survive longer (It is NOT recommended to use it against Bun Bun Black.)

  • Catseye, User Rank and game progress are essential to achieving max level, see Level-up for details.
  • See this section for treasure effects.


Appearance

  • Normal Form: Three Li'l Cats riding a cardboard box with a banana logo on it.
  • Evolved Form: They now look like gangsters. The cardboard box now has wheels, a flag and an orange logo on it.
  • True Form: The wheels are replaced by robotic legs, making this cat taller than before. Also has a mini blaster that shoots lasers. Reference to a Star Wars AT-ST. Now has a watermelon logo on it.

Trivia

  • Version 3.0 of The Battle Cats gave its True Form an anti-Black ability.
  • True Form has 1 range shorter than Bun Bun Variants' (200).
  • True Form's machine greatly resembles AT-ST from Star Wars.
  • All the forms have small "PONOS" text on the bottom left of the right side of the box. It might not be visible on the Evolved Form, but you can just about see part of the text behind one of the wheels.
