Strategy/Usage

It is always good to bring this Cat for his combo in XP stages and easy stages overall, but he can also be useful himself. He may be awful in cases where there are enemies that can hit past the frontline (such as Kory with his waves), and he cannot take on hordes, but he can nullify all damage from single, mid-low ranged bosses, such as Bun Bun, Bore, R. Ost and other bosses whose range is less than his, as long as he is protected and helped in making sure to hit the right enemy.

Nimoy Bore will likely knock him back to safety if he hits him while weakened, making him a good unit to bring to the Floating Continent in Into the Future or some other enemies with the knockback ability with somewhat low damage.

He is very useful against the Cyclones, as he can outrange nearly all of them and cause them to deal vastly reduced damage, making it harder for them to break through your units. Prof. Cat Jobs can even outrange Cosmic Cyclone, if you are able to hold it off with any unit resistant to Floating or Alien attacks.

Infinite burrowing zombies like Big Sal and Miss Haka can be stalled at the base in a pinch if needed due to his fast attack animation.

True Form

Headmaster Cat Jobs' Surge Attack can, in part, solve the Single Target problem, as all enemy units that enter it will be weakened. The Surge also has a chance to snipe backliners, as it can reach all the way to 1,050 range. However, the RNG involved in the Surge makes it unreliable unless stacked, since it has a wide area where it can appear.

His extra movement speed and ability to survive a lethal strike allow Cat Jobs to be safer to bring in a stage, as he is more likely to reach the enemy in time, even entering into the range of the likes of THE SLOTH to possibly weaken them in time, in addition to being able to last basically twice as long on the battlefield.

He can be stacked on stages with Metal enemies or enemies with barriers to make the surges reliably hit both the frontlines and backlines of the enemy army, not differently to how Cyberpunk Cat and Red Riding Mina are used. However, this requires you protect him very well, as Headmaster Cat Jobs is still very fragile despite his Survive ability, and requires heavy backup to be useful.

Trivia

  • Apart from the Iron Wall Cat, Freshman Cat Jobs is the slowest Cat Unit in the game, tied with Mighty Kristul Muu and Li'l Clops Cat Egg.
  • Freshman Cat Jobs appears on the Study upgrade's icon.
  • Prof. Cat Jobs is the only cat in the game to have a Study Up Cat Combo.
  • Cat Jobs' weaken ability, when applied to enemies with very low damage per hit, can result in such enemies delivering 0 damage to Cats (who may need the resistant ability to reduce that damage even further). This results in the "damage dealt" sound not playing, similarly to when the dodge ability is active. In this circumstance, even cats that have already survived a lethal strike are able to tank unlimited attacks. This is easy to note on Kang Roo, as her second hit is very weak, dealing less than 50 damage even at 400% magnification, meaning that it is rounded to 0 on anything.
  • His description refers to the real-life Harvard University & Nobel Prize.
