Deathhawk is a special stage available on the 3rd of every month if the player has previously completed all Crazed Cat Stages. Using Cat Food to continue the battle is not allowed in this stage, and closing the app will not allow the player to retry.


This stage is very similar to Dark Souls (Insane). However, the Teacher Bear buff is increased to 4600%, the Le'boins are replaced with 1000% Master As and Crazed Cat is replaced with Manic Mohawk Cat.


Long Distance and wave attackers are very useful here, as they can hit the enemies behind Manic Mohawk Cat, preventing them from stacking. Thaumaturge Cat is also useful to stall Manic Mohawk Cat, as she can weaken him, allowing your meatshields to live longer.

Strategy 1

Basically do a similar strategy to Dark Souls at the beginning, building up money, increasing the Worker Cat's level and stacking Bahamuts (or Uber Rares with slow attack rates). Once the base is hit, turn on the Cat CPU. It should spam everything to block the path of the powerful enemies. Make sure to spam manually if it doesn't send meatshields (bringing too many expensive cats may cause this to happen).

Strategy 2 (Li'l Eraser Cheese)

At the start, spam Li'l Eraser Cats, this will allow them to slowly kill the peons and buildup to the base. When the enemy limit is reached thanks to the peons, don't stop spamming Li'l Eraser Cat and start spamming both of your Giraffe/Lion Cats. This works since Li'l Eraser Cat has the shortest range of all cat units. Your Giraffe/Lion cats should destroy the base. Enjoy your free Maniac!

Strategy 3 (no GACHA, luck-based)

  • Cat Units: Gato Amigo (30), Mohawk Cat (20+15), Eraser Cat (20+15), Crazed Macho Cat (20), Crazed Wall Cat (20), Crazed Sexy Legs Cat (20), Crazed Bahamut Cat (30), Ururun Cat (30)
  • Items: Cat CPU (Highly recommended for meatshield spam)

Wait for the peons to get relatively close to your base. By the time they reach it, you should have your Worker Cat up to at least level 2. When they are close, send out 2 Eraser Cats. When one of the Erasers dies, send out another one. (Try to have around 2-3 Erasers out at a time.) When you get your Worker Cat to around level 3-4, save up money by continuing to stall using Eraser, until you can send out Bahamut. From here, you want to keep sending out an Eraser when one dies, until you can stack 2-3 Bahamuts (this may take a while). After you stack 2 Bahamuts, spawn Ururun and turn on the Cat CPU and watch the magic happen. To help stack Bahamuts, you can use your Cat Cannon at the right time to make Bahamut miss. To do this, you want to fire the Cat Cannon right as Bahamut starts his attack animation.

Adding 1-2 extra cheap meatshields (Li'l Macho/Li'l Tank) may help to keep the enemies at bay while your damage dealers (Ururun and Bahamut) kill them.

Strategy 4 (Megaphrodite Protection Operation)

Lineup: Up to 8 cheap meatshields (Crazed and normal Cat and Tank Cat, Catburger, Samba Cat, Li'l Wall Cat and Jiangshi Cat are recommended), Megaphrodite and Crazed Bahamut.

Items: Cat CPU, Speed Up, Sniper the Cat, and optionally a Rich Cat

Firstly, upgrade the Worker Cat to level 8, then stall to get at least 3 Megaphrodites on the field. When you think you're ready, turn on the Cat CPU and let it do the rest.

Strategy 6: Meatshields and Attackers

Items: Cat CPU, Rich Cat (optional), Speed Up (optional)

Bring any 5 75¢ meatshields, Crazed Wall Cat, Eraser Cat, Cyberpunk Cat, Crazed Sexy Legs cat and Crazed Bahamut Cat.

When you start the level, lure the peons near your base. Stall until your Worker Cat is maxed, then wait for your wallet to fill up (still stalling). Send out a Cyberpunk and keep 3 Crazed Walls out at all times (no more, no less) while stacking Cyberpunk. Once you get 2 Cyberpunks, send out Crazed Sexy Legs, then enable the Cat CPU and you will win!

Strategy 7: Quick Cheese (ft. Cyberpunk, Li'l Nyandam and Ganesha)

Bring 4 meatshields, Thaumaturge Cat, Manic Macho Legs, Cyberpunk Cat, Dark Emperor Catddam, Exalted Ganesha and Ururun Cat. Also use Slow Beam.

No need for items, though you should stall the peons until your wallet is full. When Manic Mohawk and the big peons (Teacher Bear and Master A.) arrive, use Thaumaturge to weaken Manic Mohawk, Catdam and Cyberpunk to slow Manic Mohawk, and Ururun for small knockback. Ganesha is, however, not included to attack Manic Mohawk, but instead to hit the supporting two enemies along with Manic Macho Legs, and also destroy the base when Manic Mohawk is still alive. Soon, Manic Mohawk and the supporting enemies will be thrown back to the end of their base, where Ganesha can attack the base with his Long Distance ability. Ganesha works better for this case than Aphrodite and Mina, having a higher effective range. Spam meatshields and Thaumaturges and send more of Cyberpunk, Catdam, Ganesha and Ururun as soon as they recharge, and this stage will not be much issue.

Strategy 8: No Gacha?

If you have completed Deeply Dreaming and unlocked Lone Cat and Kitten, this level becomes way more manageable. Their ability to knockback and freeze traitless is great to keep the boss close to his base. Other units that knockback traitless are also recommended, as Lone Cat and Kitten's recharge time is terrible. Ururun Wolf is a good helper. Any Long Distance unit such as Cyberpunk Cat and/or units with wave attacks such as Crazed Sexy Legs Cat are recommended to keep the Teacher Bear and the Master A. under control. Crazed Bahamut as the main attacker with aid from any high damage units can bring you victory to this stage.

Lineup - Macho Cat, Wall Cat, Crazed Macho Cat, Crazed Wall Cat, 5th meatshield (Jiagnshi Cat is a good choice, but Gato Amigo also works), Lone Cat and Kitten, Crazed Bahamut Cat 3 damage dealers/units that knockback traitless

Recommended items - Sniper the Cat, Speed Up, Cat CPU

Strategy 9 (here we go again with Megaphrodite but cheese)

Chillhola lineup but cheesed.

Lineup: up to 9 meatshields (Mohawk, Li'l Macho, Crazed Macho, So-ran, Pumpcat, Kyubey(Cat), Crazed Tank (optional), Li'l Wall (optional), Eraser (recommend 20+20)), Megaphrodite (38)

Items: Cat CPU (lazy bois), Sniper Cat (best sniper), Rich Cat (we don't need rush here)

Stall those peons until you have at least 2-3 Megaphrodite, then spam those Wall to don't get cat limit. When BOSS appears, turn on the Cat CPU and enjoy your show. Don't be afraid when Manic Mohawk hits your Megaphrodite.

(Surprisingly, my Megaphrodites hit the base before kill the BOSS (he was knocked back 2 times)

Strategy 10 (Prof. Cat Jobs)

Cat Jobs, who has an amazing weaken that sets enemy strength to 1%, outranges Manic Mohawk. With this strategy, you can use his range to constantly weaken Manic Mohawk and use other, strong units to eventually take down Manic Mohawk.


Row 1: Power of Darkness, Firewatch  

Row 2: Two or three decently strong meatshields (MUST BE STRONGER THAN MASTER A. DPS AND TEACHER BEAR DPS COMBINED) (I used Ramen and Jiangshi, for example), strong long ranger that has longer range than 451, and (if you used two meatshields that were boosted) long ranger that can either snipe or wave the backliners.

Items: None required, but you can bring Speed up and Rich to make things more convenient. (DO NOT BRING SNIPER THE CAT!)

At the beginning of battle, let the peons hit your base and level up worker cat or something like that.

When you finished prepping for battle, send out a meatshield to clear the peons and start the fight.

The second shockwave hits your cats, send out Prof. Cat Jobs. 

You want to lead Manic Mohawk as close as you can to your base early while he leaves behind the backliners as you need Master A. and Teacher Bear as far away from your Cat Jobs as possible to keep him alive so this strategy doesn't fail. So, when Manic Mohawk is close enough so that Cat Jobs can basically hit him and your meatshields will get there before Manic Mohawk starts chomping down on Cat Jobs, send out some meatshields. Do not meatshield too hard, as Manic Mohawk will then stop pushing to Cat Jobs and make the backliners closer.

Once you get the weaken, congratulations! Manic Mohawk now only does 188 damage to the units that he damages.

The rest of the fight is to start meatshielding really hard while sending out your damagers as they come up. Don't forget King Dragon Cat and Crazed Dragon Cat (or Manic King Dragon) in your first row, they will do a lot of damage to Manic Mohawk. 

The strategy will prove itself once your meatshields start getting pummeled by Master A. and Teacher Bears. If you did have boosted meatshields that can tank them both, you can use your other slot to send out something like Manic Macho Legs to do damage to them beforehand and knock the backliners back.

When Manic Mohawk gets knocked back, let him push until he gets back in Cat Jobs's range, and do the previous steps all over again.

When Manic Mohawk finally dies, your long ranger(s) should kill the Master A. and Teacher Bears that were behind Manic Mohawk and push up to the base, where you will easily destroy the enemy base and claim Manic Mohawk as your own.
