This article is about the Cat Unit. For the enemy, see Dancer Cat (Enemy).

Kung Fu Cat is a Special Cat that can be purchased for 240 Cat Food in the Upgrade Menu after completing Jamaica in Empire of Cats Chapter 1. True Form increases range, and gives him immunity to Weaken.

In order to classify Cat Units, see here


This cat is a powerful all-around unit, useful for delivering good damage from some range. Basically, the only bad things about Kung Fu Cat are that he is expensive, and has a slow recharge time, at least while you are in Empire of Cats. For Into the Future, Cats of the Cosmos, and Legend Stages, Kung Fu's use becomes more centered as a suicidal attacker, as he does not have enough knockbacks to be anything but.

However, in Empire of Cats, Kung Fu Cat is essentially a more attack-oriented version of Titan Cat, meaning he still is good for dealing with hordes of enemies, but lacks the health to be useful against high DPS boss enemies. Usually, he is used for dealing damage without being knocked back. However, he has to be timed well to get an attack in, or else he will almost definitely die before he can deal damage. A plus for using his first form is he has a much shorter foreswing, meaning he can do damage quicker than his true form, making him more useful on stages like Floor 30 for clearing peons if the Wave Immune talent is not unlocked.

True Form

Dancer Cat's True Form is somewhat lackluster, removing his multi-hit, giving him immunity to Weaken, and increasing his range by 30. His stats are still not worth the cost by the time this form is unlocked, so there is little reason to hurry in doing so. Despite this, the loss of multi-hit and the added range can make Dancer Cat useful in certain 4 crown stages still. Note that Dancer Cat's immunity to weaken is a direct counter to Calamary, but beware his one knockback and lackluster health.

Notably, his Cat Combo Feel the Dance can be used in many Stories of Legend stages to great effect, especially if the cats involved are raised to their full potential.


Note that his stats need to be made viable with the Attack Up and possibly Defence Up talents before anything else becomes worth considering. Wave Immunity makes this unit into a miniature Heroic Musashi, giving him a very good role as an anti-wave for higher-Crown Difficulty Stories of Legend stages. His Surge ability is useful as well, allowing him to randomly hit backliners too, but the low activation chance makes this hardly worth the NP. However, if you decide to invest regardless, there is a photo in the gallery showing where the Surge hits, helpful for identifying targeted backliners.

  • The outfit worn by Kung Fu Cat looks similar to the iconic yellow jumpsuit that Bruce Lee wears in the movie Game of Death.
  • Drunken Master Cat is based on the Zui Quan (醉拳) fighting style, which means "Drunken Fist" in Chinese.
  • Dancer Cat references the deceased singer Michael Jackson, well known from popularizing the Moonwalk dance.
  • Kung Fu Cat has the highest Cat Food cost of all purchasable Special Cats.
  • Dancer Cat is one of the few Cat Units whose face icon is not flipped. This might be due to him normally facing the base and not the enemies, unlike most Cat Units and even Dancer Cat's normal and evolved forms.
