Not to be confused with Catseye Nebula.

A Catseye is an obtainable item unlocked when reaching User Rank 1600. Catseyes allow units to be upgraded past Lv.30, except Normal Cats and Metal Cat. Each Catseye allows the player to increase the maximum normal level cap of a unit by 1, but the player still needs to use XP to upgrade the Cat to that level. The maximum cap level increase allowed by using Catseye is level limit of +10, increased to +20 if An Ancient Curse is beaten.

Example: a unit can reach Lv.30 normally with XP upgrades. Using one Catseye will increase that unit's level cap to Lv.31+, with maximum up to Lv.40, or Lv.50 if the player has beaten An Ancient Curse. Beyond Lv.45, two Catseyes are needed per upgrade.

The Cat Unit also has to reach level 30 from XP upgrades first, therefore making it impossible for a player to use Catseyes on certain units before reaching specific User Rank levels, even if a player gained Catseyes beforehand.


From left to right respectively Special, Rare, Super Rare, Uber Super Rare, and Legend Catseyes.

Obtaining Catseyes

Catseyes can be obtained from Gamatoto Expedition with rare drop rates, Catseye Cave, and as special rewards. You can find the number of Catseyes you currently have in the Upgrade Menu. They can also be obtained as drops in Heavenly Tower and Legend Quest.

Increasing level limit of cat units

  • The right top icons display the number of Catseyes you have
  • The upgrade button will change to the golden text colored Catseye upgrade button if available.


  • Legends may not be upgraded above Lv.30 until An Ancient Curse is beaten, after which they can be upgraded to only Lv.40.
  • Legend Catseyes may be used as a substitute for other Catseyes if the player doesn't have enough.
