Legend Stages (レジェンドストーリー Rejendo Sutōrī, Legend Stories) is a game mode that is unlocked after clearing Empire of Cats - The Battle Cats Rising (Chapter 1) and was released in the Version 2.0 Update of The Battle Cats. It contains the Challenge Battle, the Enigma Stages, many new sub-chapters (each with 1, 5, 6 or 8 stages), new types of enemies and new game mechanics, but also Event Stages where the player can win some prizes, such as Monthly Events (collectible units), Cyclone Stages (anti-Metal cats), Crazed Cat Stages (powerful variants of Normal Cats) and Awakening Stages (True Forms of certain cats), among many others.
These challenges wait for the bravest players to come. It is recommended to get Valkyrie Cat before starting these stages. Later, Bahamut Cat will be essential to progress further into the Stories of Legend and special stages. The production cost of all cats in this mode is the same as in Empire of Cats - The Emperor of Darkness (Chapter 2) and the other Main Chapters outside of Empire of Cats Chapters 1 & 3.
After Empire of Cats, the Cats constructed a time machine to travel at least 20 years into the past, rescue Legend Cats and collect Cat Food. After completing their goals and returning home, however, the Cats accidentally time-travel to an uncanny world inhabited by Relics, where it is revealed that some of the Legend Cats unlocked in Stories of Legend were merely descendants of the real heroes of Legend (presumably Urs and later Uncanny Legends drops). The Cats also discover "a dark guild researching forbidden knowledge", and "the REAL ultimate superweapon" is hinted at, but it is currently unclear what these refer to.
Stories of Legend Intro
After the Battle Cats invaded the world
they moved to the next step of their plan…
I thought what they wanted was
to blend into our world and
live a cozy and peaceful life…
I was wrong.
The Battle Cats took over
nuclear power plants
all over the world.
They were trying to feed
all the world's power into one place!
Their mission was really…
A couple of days ago I ran into
The Marketing Manager of the Battle Cats
(He was a Cat) and we had a chat, but
I don't think he knew what
So I knew their plan,
but I was too busy playing games
and going out.
Oh, I also paid a visit to my folks too.
I'm a good kid.
… and so I forgot about their plan.
We need to release the Legendary Cats!
We need free them before they were sealed!
We need to travel in time!
We need some Cat Food!
… I think that was what the Cat was saying.
Though I can barely remember,
because I was pretty drunk too.
I was having some nuts with my beer.
they succeeded in time travel
and the Battle Cats traversed to
They remembered to shut down
all the nuclear power plants safely
and even left a note saying
… I guess
They aren't so bad after all?
Hey, I forgot to add
You know Cat God? Yeah, THAT Cat God.
He is around 20 years old.
He shouldn't exist in the past… Yet.
Stories of Legend Ending
And so, having freed the Cats
trapped in the lands of Legend
the Cats came back to their own time.
Welcome home, Cats!
Oh, they brought souvenirs! How kind!
...Chocolate macadamia nuts??
Well, we were hoping for a bit more...
With the help of the Legend Cats
the Battle Cats can finally retire
and live in peace forever.
...is what I thought,
but that didn't actually happen.
Someone accidentally sat on
the time machine's button
and now the Cats were sent to
a weird place no one had ever heard of.
(It wasn't me, I promise)
Yesterday, I ran into the Marketing Manager
of The Battle Cats (again). I didn't ask, but
he told me a lot of top secret info (again).
It seems like where they ended up,
the lost Cat Army discovered other Cats
dressed like bosozoku biker gangs or
members of idol groups with number IDs
and other unusual creatures
It was really hard to tell WHEN
the Cats actually were.
They discovered some of the Legends
were actually just descendants of the
real heroes of Legend.
The Cats had also found a dark guild
researching forbidden knowledge.
Naturally, they were too curious and
immediately decided to stay.
There's no helping it, they're only Cats.
I tried to stop him, but he kept talking loudly.
And the next morning, it was all over the news.
Of course, the government immediately
demanded answers, but the Cats
just hid on top of a cupboard until they left.
Anyhow, it seems the Battle Cats are
the undisputed masters of time travel.
Maybe this time they'll discover the
REAL ultimate superweapon?
Go for it, Cats!
You can do it, Cats!
Three cheers for the Battle Cats!
to the Uncanny Legends!

Thank you for Playing!!
Clearing a sub-chapter for the first time rewards the player with 30 Cat Food and 1 Leadership. The player also unlocks the next sub-chapter and the next Crown difficulty of the current sub-chapter if already available (up to 4-Crown). Keep in mind that completing the sub-chapters with additional Crowns will reset the "one time only" item rewards, awarding the player 30 Cat Food and giving 1 Leadership again upon completion.
Generally speaking, the higher the Crown difficulty, the higher the strength magnifications. Additionally, you can only deploy Special Cats and Rare Cats in 4-Crown difficulty, although you can still have units of other rarities in your lineup, allowing you to use all the Cat Combos you want.
At the beginning of Stories of Legend, 2-Crown difficulty multiplies strength magnifications by 1.5, 3-Crown doubles the buffs, and 4-Crown multiples them by 3, but these values steadily decrease as you progress, respectively becoming 1.2, 1.3 and 1.0 by the time you reach Mouseyland. Starting at A New Legend, the buffs for 2-Crown and 3-Crown shoot back up to early SoL levels, but 4-Crown remains the same. The multipliers for each sub-chapter are as listed below:
|The Legend Begins to Sushi Island||1.5||2||3|
|Parthenon to Alcatraz||1.5||2||2|
|Jail Break Tunnel||1.5||1.7||1.5|
|Stairway to Darkness||1.3||1.5||1.3|
|Prince of Darkness||1.2||1.4||1.3|
|Dead End Night & Battle Royale||1.2||1.4||1.2|
|Scars of War & Sea Polluter||1.2||1.4||1.1|
|Body & Soul to Quarantine Isles||1.2||1.4||1|
|Mouseyland to Laboratory of Relics||1.2||1.3||1|
|A New Legend to Coup de Chat||1.5||2||1|
|Cherry Isles to The Gelatin Mines||1.4||1.8||1|
|Drunken Foundry to Realm of Whyworry||1.3||1.7||N/A|
|Pumping Titanium to Nasi-Go-Round||1.3||N/A||N/A|
|Event Stages||Varies, but usually 1.5/2/3|
In Stories of Legend and Uncanny Legends, the number of Crowns will also improve the rewards in materials as the difficulty increases.
Clearing a time-limited event for the first time also rewards the player with 30 Cat Food and 1 Leadership, and unlocks the next Crown difficulty if there is one.
- Main article: Stage Difficulties
Seperate from Crowns, each Legend Stages map and level is assigned a difficulty level ranging from ★1 to ★12. A map's ★ difficulty is always equal to that of its stages; map whose stages vary in difficulty will have multiple ★ difficulties itself (e.g., Vacation Awakes! is rated as both ★7 and ★8).
Most of the Stories of Legend and Uncanny Legends stages have 2 treasures: an item with 1% drop with no limit and a certain amount of XP that has a 10% chance to drop that the player can only acquire once. Clearing any Crown difficulty for the first time also rewards the player with 30 Cat Food and 1 Leadership. Starting from Jail Break Tunnel, after every 5~8 sub-chapters, some boss characters can be recruited to your side as Legend Cats. After unlocking any cat from Stories of Legend, Enigmas will become obtainable from any Legend Stage other than the Challenge Battle, Continuation Stages and Enigma Stages. Each Stories of Legend cat except Idi:N raises the player's Enigma Level by 1 up to a maximum of 5.
Clearing all Stories of Legend sub-chapters on 1-Crown will unlock Uncanny Legends, the True Forms of the legends except Mecha-Bun (which is unlocked after beating An Ancient Curse) and the last floors of the Heavenly Tower. Clearing all Stories of Legend sub-chapters on 2-Crown and 3-Crown will each give the player a Platinum Ticket. Clearing all Stories of Legend sub-chapters on 4-Crown difficulty will unlock a bonus stage in 4-Crown Laboratory of Relics from which the player can unlock Idi:N.

|Uncanny Legends (真レジェンドステージ) is a continuation of the Stories of Legend, unlocked by completing said campaign on 1-Crown difficulty. It can be accessed from the Legend Stages menu at any time and was added in Version 7.0 of The Battle Cats.
Uncanny Legends introduces two new types of enemies: Relics and Aku. Relics appear as early as Stage 1, boasting exceptional stats and the Curse ability, which disables cat abilities that target specific traits, but only those. Aku are introduced in sub-chapter 38, Spacetime Distortion; some have Shields which regenerate each time they receive a damage-based knockback, while others have a chance to spawn Surge Attacks when killed.
Like the final chapter of the previous campaign, the first sub-chapter, A New Legend, only contains one level. Completing this level unlocks Mecha-Bun's True Form and the ability to upgrade cats 10 more levels using Catseyes, including Legend Cats. Doing so is highly recommended, as all of the Stories of Legend Cats' True Forms are immune to Curse and have anti-Relic abilities, and Relics are featured prominently here.
Unlike Stories of Legend, Uncanny Legends does not follow a completely linear progression: the 39th sub-chapter, Imminent Disaster is inaccessible unless you have beaten the "Unleashing the Cats", which in turn requires you to clear the Event Stages Wicked Cat, Wicked Tank and Wicked Axe. This also allows for you to then in turn unlock and play through another Story chapter, The Aku Realms.
