Compared to Bore, Dread Bore gains the usual Zombie abilities of burrow + revive and moves significantly faster, but the rest of its stats are kept more or less the same. However, because there are far fewer anti-Zombie cats than there are anti-Red cats, it will often prove to be much harder to deal with. Its money drop is notably quite high for a Zombie enemy.
Like with the other variants of Bore, it is critical to use cats that can inflict status effects on Dread Bore to bring him to a halt.
Options from the Rare category include Welterweight, Gardener and Onmyoji. Spending NP in Talents allow for Enchantress and Corrupted Psychocat to stall Dread Bore too.
