Ganglion is an Uber Rare Cat that can be unlocked by playing the Rare Cat Capsule during the Lords of Destruction Dragon Emperors event. True Form added in 8.7 increases health and knockbacks.

Cat Unit # 396
Uber Rare Cat


Ganglion the Ancient

Ganglion the Unleashed


Evolves into Ganglion the Ancient at level 10.

Evolves into Ganglion the Unleashed at level 30 using Catfruit.


  • Strong against Aliens and Zombies.
  • Zombie Killer.
  • Attacks reach behind his target, which means he will also damage enemies behind the front lines.
  • High health and DPS.
  • Rebound mechanic paired with moderate amount of knockbacks. (Better in True Form)
  • High speed makes him a good rusher overall.


  • Short standing range for an Uber Rare.
  • High cost and long recharge time.
  • Attack animation is rather long for his role.


Ganglion is like The Peach Devils: good enough stats, a good set of abilities, and a lot of speed. Unlike The Peach Devils however, Ganglion's delay between attack's is entirely composed of backswing. This means that he will not move while recharging an attack, (which means he won't go to the frontlines and possibly take damage he otherwise wouldn't have while recharging an attack) and he'll attack immediately after being knocked back. In particular, this unit is good against Aliens and Zombies, most notably against Alpacky and Zamelle, who get crushed by Ganglion's strikes.

He can also be used against LD enemies such as Henry, as he'll rush into their blindspots with hardly any timing requires.

Ganglion serves well as a Long Distance rusher. He can cripple the backlines of enemies that would otherwise be a pain to deal with when the boss knocks back. He acts a good counter to Tackeys and Dolphina, especially when they are supported by stronger enemies, as he can stay safe in their blind spots. Ganglion is also good on No Return Flights, as he can snipe Master A. and the numbers of Rain Ds that start to stack up from Dolphina's blind spot.

Although his True Form buffs look slightly mediocre at first glance, the buffs are actually very helpful, as they make Ganglion even better at rushing through enemies, by giving him better survivability and use of his backswing rebound.

*HP = Hit Points = Health ; AP = Attack Power = Damage ; DPS = Damage per Second ; 30f = 1 second

*See this section to calculate stats.


  • Normal: A tall, slender and skeletal dragon floating above a halo ring. Much like the other Dragon Emperors, he has a cat face on his chest.
  • Evolved: Now his body is mostly black and he has wings on his forearms. Attack animation is a bit more refined.
  • True: Final form changes his body to a more jagged look as well as change the cat face on the chest into a manic cat. Claws and chest has a vibrant lava like glow and ash like substances fall from it. The wings becomes much larger and the head has a tail like structure behind it and the eyes also turns jagged.


  • Ganglion stands out compared to the other units from the same set. Unlike most Dragon Emperors:
    • The cat face on his body does not become similar to that of a Crazed Cat upon evolution.
    • He's effective against two types of enemies instead of one.
    • He is quite fast.
    • His stats do not improve upon evolution.
    • His second form has his "title" after his name instead of before it.
  • Ganglion is named after the ganglion, a type of cell found in nerves, or after a type of cyst (potentially disturbing images).
  • If one looks closely, they will notice that what appears to be Ganglion's tail is actually a back extension to his head/neck.
