Cats of the Cosmos is the third saga in The Battle Cats and is unlocked after clearing Chapter 1 of Into the Future. Like the previous sagas, it contains 3 Chapters, each with 48 stages. Cats of the Cosmos features most of the enemies introduced in Into the Future, as well as some new enemies and Stories of Legend enemies.
The main gimmick of this saga is the introduction of "Starred" Alien Enemies, which are unaffected by the Aqua Crystal and Plasma Crystal Treasures from Into the Future. Starred Aliens have a 1,600% strength magnification by default, which can only be reduced by collecting the Treasures in Cats of the Cosmos.
Chapter 1 was added in the Version 6.5 Update, Chapter 2 was added in the Version 7.2 Update and Chapter 3 was released in the Version 8.3 Update. No Treasure Festivals are officially scheduled on the weekly event chart yet and may only appear during special events, such as Meow Meow Day.
As its name suggests, Cats of the Cosmos has the Cats invading the cosmos and encountering more Aliens, presumably using the rocket mentioned at the end of Into the Future. The ending reveals that the narrator of Cats of the Cosmos was Cat God and that the Cats and Aliens have discussed time travel, mind control and "all kinds of obscure technical topics" with each other. It also suggests moving onward to the realm of legend, referring to Legend Stages (although Legend Stages is unlocked earlier).
New Years Day, 20XX.
On the way home, I began to wonder...
How many years had it been since
the Great Cat War began?
And yet, it feels like
I never hear from you anymore.
Not even on my birthday.
The cat's meow... out-of-this-world...
most righteous... top-shelf...
king of the hill... the big cheese...
No words can express
the awesomeness that is me.
I guess people are just afraid to get
too close to true perfection?
I just thought of something!!
Could it be? Am I asking for too much
from you, my lovely believers?
My bad (lol)
I heard that lately the most popular
holiday destination is outer space.
All the celebs are going.
For some reason everyone is totally
fascinated with Alien fashion.
It's the biggest fad of 20XX.
You didn't hear it from me, but
the radiance of the Alien empire
reaches even my neighborhood.
Well, those space guys still can't
compete with my glory, of course.
It gets pretty exhausting, being
followed around by crowds of
stylish people begging for your attention.
Such is my burden...
The question I get asked most:
"Where are your trousers?"
But telling would spoil the surprise.
Here's some big news.
I just passed by the Cats who headed
out into deep space.
They had some really important
information for all of you.
Those Aliens... they're actually
not such bad guys after all!
They're just normal folks like
you might run into in your hometown
Still, the Cats have to invade somewhere.
And so, the next adventure of
The Battle Cats begins now!!!
The Cat Empire achieved total
domination of the entire universe.
A splendid galactic federation
by the Cats, for the Cats.
The cosmos achieved total peace,
and unlimited cat food for all.
... that's the official story, but
the reality is a little different.
Everyone's daily life didn't
actually change one bit.
The one weird thing is that all
constellations now look like cats.
Cats, and only cats.
Or maybe its just me?
Actually, I was at a New Years Party
for the Cat Army and Alien Empire.
I only went to be polite, but...
These Cats and Aliens just turned
their backs and ignored me, talking
about time travel, mind control, and
all kinds of obscure technical topics.
At some point, the world went blurry...
I must have had one seltzer too many
because when I came to I was alone.
Actually, I think that was nice of them
not to wake me, because I felt very
well rested for a week after.
Oh yeah, that's right.
I was free one Tuesday, so I went
to the battlefield with the Cat Army
to kill some time.
I haven't had such a good time
since grade school gym class.
What, you believed me?
Of course I'm not serious.
Well, as the Cat God, I can't just
leave those guys to lose, right?
And you... you did great, kid.
I'm going to grant your dearest wishes.
No, not that one, you creep.
You'll see what I mean. Anyhow.
Congratulations to The Battle Cats!
Thank You Battle Cats!
to the realm of legends!

Thank you for Playing!!
This saga introduces a variant of the Aliens that can be identified by a yellow star badge on a part of their bodies. Even though they are categorized as Aliens, the Crystal Treasures collected in Into the Future don't affect them. They initially have a 1600% strength magnification. Collecting all Superior anti-Starred Alien Treasures in a Cats of the Cosmos chapter will reduce their stats by 500% each (1,600% - 1,100% - 600% - 100%).

This saga expands the series of "elemental" Fruit Treasures that increase the effectiveness of certain abilities against a particular type of enemy. Titanium Fruit (Metal), Antimatter Fruit (Zombie) and Enigma Fruit (Alien) are available to collect here as well as Treasure to increase XP earned, max Cat Energy and five sets of Treasure for weakening the Starred Aliens. The last Treasure on the list is the Mystery Mask, which is needed to weaken the final boss of each chapter.
This saga introduces the Warp, Warp Blocker, Barrier and Barrier Breaker abilities. Enemies with the Warp ability have a chance to bring one or a group of Cats they hit backward or forward a specific distance after an amount of time; Cats with the Warp Blocker ability will ignore this effect. Warped units will disappear from the battlefield until the warp duration ends, but still count toward the Cat Deploy Limit.
Enemies with the Barrier ability are able to ignore any damage that is weaker than the limit of their Barrier as well as any status effects that would be inflicted by those attacks. Each enemy has a Barrier with different limit and it is not affected by strength magnification. If a single attack deals more damage to a Barrier than the Barrier's health value (including additional damage from abilities such as Massive Damage or Savage Blow), the Barrier will break. After breaking the Barrier, the enemy is vulnerable to all attacks and status effects; Cats with the Barrier Breaker ability have either a percentage chance or are guaranteed to break Barriers, without having to deal higher damage than the Barrier limit.
The majority of the stages in Cats of the Cosmos have Battle Restrictions. Every 3 stages has different restrictions, with a few exceptions. The restrictions are as listed:

- Many of the enemy bases, Treasure names and stage appearances on the map in this saga are pop culture references.
- Most of the stage names and individual Treasure names are reused from Chapter 3 of The Battle Cats POP!.
- Most anti-Starred Alien Treasures were named with a format "natural satellites, gemstone", e.g. "Phoebe Beryl" is named after Phoebe, a moon of Saturn and Beryl, a gemstone that has a golden colored variant. The sole exception is "Stellar Garnet" in which Stellar means "star". The only thing connecting it to moons is that moons can be found by stellar occultation (solar eclipse).
