This article is about the Cat Unit. For the enemy units, see Hermit Cat (Enemy Unit) or Masked Grandmaster Cat (Enemy Unit).

Hermit Cat is a mission reward for players who are able to beat Floor 30 of the Heavenly Tower, an event added in update 6.2. True Form added in Version 11.0 makes him Strong Against relic enemies and able to curse them. It also increases its HP and decreases recharge time.

Strategy/Usage

This unit is somewhat like Crazed Gross Cat, but attacks faster and can fire up to three Wave Attacks at a time if all his hits connect. Use him to handle certain bosses from a distance by hitting the peons and letting the waves hit the boss. This is further supported by the Wave Attack's range being 735, being able to reach even Director Kurosawah. He also has the valuable niche of being a wave unit usable in 4 crowns, but he faces fierce competition from Slime Cat.

Unfortunately, he has low standing range, meaning you will have to be in the right position to use this unit against backliners without him being attacked.

True Form

Masked Grandmaster Cat gains specialization against Relics, through the Strong ability, curse immunity and the ability to curse them. Due to his DPS and waves, he is now able to deal a lot of damage to any short ranged Relics all while causing a lot of trouble to supporting peons and, possibly, Relic backliners. His curse will rarely help due to his range and the low activation chance, but he doesn't need it, as his strong ability and better recharge will make him a threat to several common Relic Enemies. Sadly, his range still binds him, as all it takes is for a Relic Enemy to have more than 255 range (and not be Loris) to render this Cat a waste of money. It is therefore better to use him when there are stepping stones such as metals, burrowing zombies, and short ranged peons.

Relics aside, he can also help a lot as a wave attacker in 4 crowns stages, thanks to his longer waves and shorter recharge.

Trivia

  • Hermit Cat is a reference to Korin from the Dragon Ball series. Just like Korin, he lives on top of a Giant Tower, carries a walking stick and is deceptively agile and strong.
