He lacks speed in both movement and attack rate, but he boasts immense health and attack power. He has lower attack than The Face at 100% strength magnification, but his buff is 150% in his first appearance, giving him 149,998 health and 2,700 damage. Even though he has a very slow attack rate, he has insane range as a trade-off. It's important to note that Dark Emperor Nyandam's Hitbox is closer to the front of the sprite compared to Director Kurosawah and Galactic Overseer Nyandam.
When you first encounter him, prepare for a close fight, as he is protected by One Horns and a constant spam of Squire Rels and Those Guys (see Moon for strategies). Since few cats can outrange him, focus on units that can survive his attacks, like Fish Cat and Titan Cat. Even later on, it's important to be wary of this enemy, as his strong, ranged attacks can put a dent in many cat armies, posing a huge danger especially to units with low health and not enough range to stay safe, like Bahamut Cat.
Nyandam's long attack animation can be exploited: use the Cat Cannon when his attack animation is about to finish to interrupt it and force Nyandam to restart the attack. A stack of Pirate Cats or Bean Cats in early-game can be used to stunlock him provided he's by himself, which can be used to cheese Last Gang.

Nyanko Defence Force
In Nyanko Defence Force, Dark Emperor Nyandam had many new variants that could be fought as bosses or Raid Bosses. Instead of attacking directly, they would constantly summon elemental spirits which would orbit around them and shoot projectiles at the player. There were three types of spirits:
- Water Spirits would occasionally shoot several blue projectiles at once.
- Air Spirits would constantly morph into a tornado, releasing a small green projectile.
- Fire Spirits would periodically shoot five orange projectiles at the player in quick succession.
Except for Dark Nyandam, Umbral Nyandam and Ghostly Frozen Nyandam, all names used for these enemies are conjectural.
