Having most if not all your lineup be surge immune is required, as Malevolent Macho Legs has 100% uptime on its surge with many surges stacking at once and can deal massive DPS. Meatshields like talented Gato Amigo, Cactus Cat, and Cone Cat (Although not being surge immune, has very high health against Aku/Relics). Your attackers should consist of Awakened Doron, Awakened Naala, Jagando, or any effective surge immune Uber Rares. Li'l King Dragon Cat is a must-have, being one of the few spammable surge immune attackers, which is very effective against the Sir Rels pushing power and for good damage in general. Bringing a Rich Cat is also highly recommended, as money is extremely tight in this stage.

Strategy 1[]

Lineup: Biohazard, Bony Bone, Awakened Naala 50, Boulder Cat 30, Cone Cat 50, Cat Cactus 45, Li'l King Dragon Cat (Mini-Wave, Immune to Surge, Defense, Attack Up) 50+15, Awakened Doron 40, Ape Lord Luza 50

Cannon: Breakerblast

Items: Rich Cat

When the battle begins, lure the first Malevolent Macho Legs until it gets approximately 3/4 of the way to your base. At this point, spawn Ape Lord Luza and spam your meatshields until you can afford Naala. Once Naala is on the field, you should win, as long as you spam your meatshields and spawn Li'l King Dragon Cats when you have a decent amount of cash. Make sure to spawn Doron when Othom arrives to alleviate the pressure a bit.
