Strategy[]

Strategy 1[]

Lineup: Brave Cutter, Little Warriors, Cameraman Cat 50+72, Neo Cutter Cat 50, Courier Cat 50, Boulder Cat, Naga Cat, Awakened Doron 50, Idi:N2 46, Ape Lord Luza 50

Cannon: Thunderbolt, Waterblast (Style), Waterblast (Foundation)

Notes: While the Waterblast style and foundation are not necessary, they can help a great deal if highly leveled. The Curseblast foundation can be used to reduce damage from the Relics instead if needed.

Since this stage has a relatively tame start, with the Relic Bun-Bun and Golem Sunfish only appearing after the enemy base is damaged, the start should be used to build up the wallet and start stacking some units, including an early spawn of Luza. However, do not spawn Idi or Doron until the main threats appear. Additionally, you are likely to take on a Ragin' Gory while maxing out your Worker Cat, taking him out without the more serious threats in the way. While waiting for the other Ragin' Gories is an option, especially since they spawn on a timer regardless of base health, it is not necessary. Still, it can make the stage a lot easier. The same can be said of J.J. Jackrabbit.

By the time your units reach the base, Luza should already be on the field and have a decent chunk of his recharge already cleared, with the Thunderbolt, Doron, and Idi all ready to go. Doron's spawn can be timed to reach the enemy base at or slightly after base-hit to immediately get a freeze and knockback on the Relics. This should be an immediate clear shot for the first Idi, who should deal multiple powerful hits and rebound a few times. At this point, continue spamming Li'l Erasers, Couriers, Boulders and Nagas, using the Thunderbolt to give Luza several chances to strike. While the Naga stack is not ever guaranteed to freeze the Relic Bun-Bun, it has a good chance to do so enough to hinder its progress decently. In case of poor luck with Naga's freezes, this stage may need to be reset, though it doesn't need a whole lot of luck. These freezes are still useful to give Courier a few clear shots against the Red EnerG duo, as a high-level Courier combined with the general damage of Doron's surge and Luza's multiple hits should knock at least one of them out before the other reaches the base. Additionally, with decent luck on Naga's part, the Relic Bun-Bun should be down without reaching the base. When deploying Idi, make sure to rely on a Doron surge or a Thunderbolt to get some guaranteed burst damage. However, make sure that Relic Bun-Bun is in range, as Doron's surge could knock it behind the two Red EnerGs. If the enemies reach the base with Relic Bun-Bun or both Red EnerGs, then you might have to restart, as they only need a few rapid hits to destroy the base. Still, eventually, this lineup should wear the Relic Bun-Bun and a single Red EnerG down, in which case the remaining enemies would be easy to deal with on their own.

Strategy 2 (4 Crown Friendly)[]

Lineup: Biohazard, Bony Bone, Boulder Cat, Cone Cat 50, Courier Cat 50, Cat Mask Doron 50, Idi:N2 50, Awakened Naala 50, Ape Lord Luza 50

Cannon: Thunderbolt

Notes:

  • The guidemaker used Waterblast foundation level 8, reducing Surge damage by 6%. It shouldn't make a particularly big difference, however.

This strategy can be quite difficult and RNG-dependant. Proceed with caution.

Use the beginning to stall and max out your wallet and money. Send out Ape Lord Luza early to get a 2nd Ape Lord Luza later in the stage. From here, continue to spam Cone Cat. At around halfway to the base, send out Awakened Naala and start spamming Courier Cat. Just before the base is hit, send out Cat Mask Doron to get into the battle earlier.

Once Red EnerG spawns, keep spamming Courier Cat, start spamming Boulder Cat and send out Idi:N2 to chip down Relic Bun Bun or Red EnerG himself. The enemies will naturally push you hard regardless, due to Red EnerG's difficult to control nature regarding Special and Rare units only.

You will likely start running out of money relatively soon. At this point, stop spamming Courier Cat, and only send out Boulder Cat when your big hitters are close enough to initiate attack. Hopefully you have chipped down one of the big threats enough to kill them, where they are likely to be relatively close to your base; close enough for Golem Sunfish to snipe from afar. Once either Red EnerG or Relic Bun Bun dies, the other should die relatively soon after, and Golem Sunfish will no longer have any pushing power.

Trivia[]

  • Loony Lakeside is a pun on loonlake, a term for any lake that is home to the waterbirds known as loons.
  • Loony Lakeside's Japanese name, Niramekko no Hotori (にらめっ湖のほとり), is derived from the word niramekko (にらめっこ), meaning "staring contest". The joke is that instead of こ, the stage's name spells ko as 湖, meaning "lake".
