Empress' Research is an Aku-centered "questline" involving numerous stages and missions. It is a key part of progression because of how many features are gated behind it, most importantly Imminent Disaster and The Aku Realms.

Part 1: Empress' Research

The first part consists of two tiers of three groups of maps that appear during a specific hour of each day.

The first tier is unlocked after completing Empire of Cats Chapter 3; each map contains four stages and disappears when you clear a stage, so it will take a minimum of 4 days to finish Tier 1.

The second tier consists of the "Wicked Cat" maps, which will pit you against Aku versions of the first three Normal Cats. Each appears after clearing a specific Tier 1 map and shares a schedule with the one that was required to unlock it. Unlike the first tier, these don't disappear and only contain two stages per map. Players can only clear each Tier 1 and Tier 2 map once per save file.

Each group awards 50 Cat Food via Catnip Challenges. Complete all three groups to receive an additional 50 Cat Food and move onto Part 2.

Part 2: Empress' Call to Arms

There is only one map in this part: Unleasing the Cats, which appears after clearing all Part 1 stages listed above. It has no time limit and contains only one stage, which disappears when cleared, so it can only be beaten once per save file. By completing this map, you will receive 100 Cat Food via missions and unlock several new features, including the first map of Part 3:

Part 3: Empress' Report

This part sees a return to the four-stage maps that appear for two hours a day. There are only two maps this time, one unlocked after the other, and they have several rewards including Catamins, Legend Catseyes, Battle Items and Aku Catfruit Seeds. Each reward can only be claimed once.
