In order to classify Cat Units, see here


Generally, Hades is used as a powerful tank to protect other units, similarly to Guardian Gamereon or Kai. He is particularly useful on stages that mix traits, which would normally limit the usefulness of multiple tanks, but he is usually outclassed by others on stages with only one or two traits.

Hades attacks very fast and has short range, although he has slow speed and can nearly never get to the front line on time. His fast but weak-ish attacks are a very good thing to have, as it means that Hades can get enemies away from him as quickly as possible, but it is a very bad thing when dealing with enemies who have lots of knockbacks, namely Brollow and Gabriel.

However, it also increases the amount of time he has to stay at the frontline in order to do his damage, and it's never guaranteed he will survive that long. Other tankers such as Kai have a very strong but slow attack, so they only need to stay alive for a few seconds to do the same damage as Hades does in over 10 seconds.

He can also perform well in Papuu's Paradise because of his immunity to toxic.

True Form

Almighty Hades gains nothing but two immunities. Immunity to knockback is especially important for a tank, while immunity to slow can also be useful in some cases. Considering how late this True Form can be unlocked, due to the requirement of an Epic Catfruit Seed, it can be seen as a little cost, little reward trade.

Immunity to knockback allows Hades to be extremely effective in stages that combine Long Distance attacks with knockback attacks, namely Floor 39 of the Heavenly Tower.


Since this unit relies on their stats, going for the extra attack and health is definitely a good idea, if one wishes to boost this unit. A defense Talent Orb can also be given to Hades to make him even tougher against a specific trait, possibly one that there is not a counter for among your cats (excluding Traitless and Relic enemies).

The anti-relic talents are not recommended, as slowing units who are already close to Hades (probably hitting him) is rarely even going to have an effect, while having literally no effect whatsoever on any of the many Relic enemies who outrange him. Weaken grants a marginally better survivability against Relic, but it is far less versatile than a direct health boost, in addition to requiring curse immunity to be unlocked as well, so it is not recommended to unlock this either. Without slow and weaken, curse immune is worthless, so do not unlock that either. Also note the massive cost of talents that both unlock a target and an ability.
