Battle Cats Wiki

Enigma Stages are a feature available after unlocking any Legend Cat from Stories of Legend. They were added in Version 9.4.


To unlock an Enigma Stage, you need to acquire an Enigma (also known as an Enigma Map, an item which has a set chance to drop when clearing any Legend Stage (other than Challenge Battle, Catamin Stages, Continuation Stages and the Enigma Stages themselves), with a guaranteed chance to drop in Isle of the Map Lord. If you happen to obtain one, the Enigma has a chance of being an Inferior, Normal, or Superior Enigma, depending on your Enigma Level. After obtaining the Enigma, the cats will start decoding it in the Legend Stages menu, a process which takes 3 hours to complete. The player can tap on the Enigma that is being decoded to see how much time is remaining until it is decoded.

Once the Enigma has been decoded, the player can tap on the "Complete!" button to reveal a random Enigma Stage. After beating the Enigma Stage, the player will receive a reward, which can be Battle Items, XP, Cat Tickets, Catseyes, Talent Orbs, Catamins or Catfruit depending on the stage. Only 4 Enigma Stages are to be shown at once, so if you unlock one but already have four others waiting to be played, you will not get another.

All Enigma Stages last for 24 hours after being unlocked and may only be completed once before disappearing.

Enigma Level

Enigma Level is a leveling system that allows players to gain a higher chance to obtain rarer Enigmas. E.g. level 1 has a higher chance to get Inferior Enigmas and level 6 has a higher chance of getting Superior Enigmas. Enigma Level is dictated by how many units have been unlocked from Stories of Legend and Uncanny Legends (Ururun Wolf, Li'l Nyandam, Red Riding Mina, Miyamoku Musashi, Mecha-Bun and Dogumaru).

Hunter's Maps

Unlike other Enigmas, the Hunter's Maps all have multiple stages. Each stage drops a different color Behemoth Stone, with more advanced Hunter's Maps having more stages and potentially dropping more stones at a time.

Even though the three Hunter's Maps are technically considered to be Inferior, Normal and Superior, respectively, the chance to find one is 50% no matter your Enigma Level. In regards to Hunter's Maps, raising Enigma Level only affects which one will appear: Enigma Level 1-3 has Hunter's Map I, 4-5 replaces it with Hunter's Map II, and Enigma Level 6 gets Hunter's Map III.

English Version Japanese Version Translation Behemoth Stones (in order)
Hunter's Map I 狩人の地図Ⅰ Hunter's Map I Purple, Red
Hunter's Map II 狩人の地図Ⅱ Hunter's Map II Purple, Red, Blue, Green
Hunter's Map III 狩人の地図Ⅲ Hunter's Map III Purple, Blue, Green, Red, Yellow

Summer Break Cats

Enigmas for these stages can only be obtained from the Summer Break Cats Gauntlet. All contain no enemies other than Drummer Doge, Firework Guys and Ms. Sign, are rated as ★1 difficulty, cost 50 energy, and have a guaranteed chance to drop Legend Nets for the Summer Break Cats gacha. Each map has four variations with different backgrounds, allowing players to get Cat Food and Leadership aplenty.

  • Idi:N is the only Stories of Legend drop unit who doesn't increase the player's Enigma Level.
  • Enigma Level 6 was added in version 11.5 alongside the Hunter's Maps.
  • Although the first image for the Enigma Stage tutorial includes a platinum Enigma, no such item can be found in-game.
  • Sprites for two more Enigma rarities, or alternate designs for Normal and Superior Enigmas, can be found in the game's files.
  • Shack of Spirit, Cave of Spirit and Labyrinth of Spirit all reference the Room of Spirit and Time from Dragon Ball. The reference is more obvious with the maps' Japanese names.
