Empire of Cats (日本編 Nihon-hen, Japan Arc) is the first saga in The Battle Cats/Nyanko Daisensou and is unlocked from the beginning. This mode contains 3 chapters, with 48 stages in each. Collecting all Treasures available in each stage is the main goal in this mode. Chapter 1 has been available since Ganso!! Nyanko Daisensou, while Chapters 2 and 3 were introduced in the re-release, Nyanko Daisensou.

Version 5.6 added Zombie Outbreaks to Chapter 1, Version 5.7 brought them to Chapter 2, and Version 5.8 brought them to Chapter 3.

Story[]

The Empire of Cats opening plays every time the player opens the game. In most versions of The Battle Cats, Empire of Cats focuses on the Cats taking over Earth and the Moon, but in the Japanese Version, they only take over the 47 prefectures of Japan and Iriomote Island. As a result, the Japanese Version has different names, Treasures, backgrounds and enemy bases for most levels, though the levels themselves play out the same in all versions.

In all versions except the English Version, the Empire of Cats opening is stated to begin on New Year's Eve of whatever year the device's clock is set to. For example, if the current year is 2024, Empire of Cats starts on the last day of 2024.

Empire of Cats Opening (EN)
Empire of Cats Ending (EN)

Amongst all the global issues,
civil wars, financial crises, terrorism
a brand new threat appears…
The Battle Cats

We found it too hard
to fight back… because…
these Cats… are too cute.

We are powerless to their reign.
We cannot stop their legion.

Come to think of it
Cats have already invaded the internet too..
We have the best
information technology systems
and use them to look at Cats.

By the way,
the developer of these Battle Cats
was interviewed on TV. It went like this…

Why is the new weapon a Cat?

and he answered -

Because I love Cats.

… are you serious?

I just read what I've written.
It's horrible… so horrible.
I've forgotten how bad my writing was.


My biggest mistake was
I don't know who I am writing to…
I remember my days as a kid,
I wanted to be a major leaguer.


Now…
Now I want to be a millionaire CEO of
a Social Networking Service.



I mean,
If you have money,
You don't need love, right?
YES / NO




Whatever the answer is…
I want to tell you one thing.



The "Battle Cats" aren't so bad.


That's pretty much it.

After all the battles,


The world was overrun by the Battle Cats.


A government of the Cats,


by the Cats, for the Cats is the new world!


Or that's what I thought…


In the end,


nothing really changed.


Well, if I have to say something,


I see a lot more Cats nowadays.


That's pretty much it.


Oh, by the way,


I had a "Cat" come into my office


for a job interview, he didn't get in.


We might be really busy,


but a Cat…


is just a Cat.


However, I do feel lucky if I see one,


in the office or at school.


Wouldn't you?


Anyways,


Congratulations to The Battle Cats!


Thank you Battle Cats!


Battle Cats Forever!

2024年、大晦日。
日本列島が血に染まる…
2024, New Year's Eve.
The Japanese archipelago is stained with blood...

経済低迷、政治不信
弱体化し続ける日本に
とつじょとして
現れた「にゃんこ軍団」
Economic weakness, political distrust.
As Japan continued to weaken,
suddenly,
the "Cat Army" appeared.

狂瀾怒濤…冷酷無残
…支離滅裂…和気藹藹
焼肉定食…愛羅武勇…
Turbulent... heartless and cruel
...incongruous... harmonious
yakiniku set meal... I love you...

四字熟語っぽいのを並べてみたが
奴らの進軍を止めることはできない
I tried to set up some four-kanji set phrases,
but that cannot stop their advance.

そういえば、
「にゃんこ」と「ちゃんこ」は
響きが似ている
しかし「にゃんこ鍋」は
あまり見たくないものだ
By the way, "Nyanko" and "Chanko"
sound similar,
but "Nyankonabe" is
something I don't really want to see.

にゃんこを丁寧に言うと
「おにゃんこ」となる
ちょっと懐かしいと感じた人は
いい年頃の人だろう
The polite way to say "Nyanko"
is "Onyanko".
Those who find it a little nostalgic
are probably at a good age (sarcasm)

この前、手紙を書こうとして
書き始めたのはいいが
久々に書いた自分の字が
余りにも汚くて
途中でやめてしまったのを
思い出した
I just remembered that the
other day, I tried writing a letter,
but it was my first time writing in a while
and my handwriting was so bad
that I stopped halfway through.

そもそも誰に出すかも
決めずに書き始めたのが
一番の失敗だ
My biggest mistake was that
I started writing without deciding
who to send it to in the first place.

子供の頃、大きくなったら
野球選手になりたいとか
平気な顔して言っていたけど
今思うと恥ずかしい
When I was a kid, I said with a straight face
that I wanted to be a baseball player
when I grew up, but
it's embarrassing when I think about it now.

まぁ、
漫画家で大金持ち。
それは成れるものなら
今でも成りたいと思ってる
Well,
if possible,
I still want to be a
manga artist with a lot of money.

お金があれば
愛なんていらない?
はい いいえ
If you have money,
you don't need love?
Yes No

どっちが正しいかなんて
正直どうでもいいんだけど
To be honest, I don't
really care which is correct, but

ただ一つだけ
言いたいことは
I just want to say
one thing.

「にゃんこ軍団」は
そんなに悪い奴らじゃないよ♪
The "Cat Army"
is not so bad♪

…ってことぐらいだ
...That's pretty much it.

こうして
日本はにゃんこ軍団によって
完全に制圧された…
And so,
Japan was completely
conquered by the Cat Army...

にゃんこ軍団の
にゃんこ軍団による
にゃんこ軍団の為の政治が
今、はじまるのだ!
A government of the Cat Army,
by the Cat Army,
for the Cat Army
begins now!

…と思っていたけど
...was what I thought, but,

けっきょく
ボク達の生活が変わることは
まったく無かった
in the end,
there was no change in
our lives at all.

変わったことと言えば
ちょっとだけ
「ネコ」が増えた
Speaking of things that have changed,
the number of "Cats"
has increased just a bit.

それぐらいだ
That's about it.

あ、そうそう
Ah, yes,

このまえボクが働いている
会社の面接に
にゃんこが来ていた
the other day, a Cat
came for a job interview
at the company where I work.

まぁ、いくら忙しいとはいえ
やっぱり「ネコ」なので
結果は不採用だったんだけど…
Well, no matter how busy we are,
he's still a "Cat" after all,
so he didn't get in...

でも、
However,

もし会社や学校に
にゃんこがいたら…
if I see a Cat
at work or at school...

なんだかちょっとだけ
うれしいと思うのは
ボクだけかな?(笑)
It makes me feel just a little bit
happy for some reason.
Is it just me? (laughs)

どちらにせよ
Anyways,

おめでとう
にゃんこ軍団!
ありがとう
にゃんこ軍団!
Congratulations,
Cat Army!
Thank you,
Cat Army!

These Treasures can be split into three groups (in ascending order): Inferior, Normal, and Superior. When completing a stage, you have a chance to earn a Treasure (quality is random). You can try a stage again to get higher Treasure quality.

Trivia[]

  • Most of the enemy bases in the English version of Empire of Cats were taken directly from Kumanchu Royale.
  • From version 12.0 onward, playing on December 31st shows an alternate version of the Empire of Cats intro in which True Superfeline steadily approaches the player. At the end of the intro, the screen turns red, alluding to the line, "2022, New Year's Eve. The Japanese archipelago is stained with blood," (2022年、大晦日。日本列島が血に染まる) from the Japanese Version's intro.
  • Master of Mind Catcrates' Japanese description directly references the line, "'Nyanko' and 'Chanko' sound similar," (にゃんこ」と「ちゃんこ」は響きが似ている) from the Japanese Version's intro.
  • "A government of the Cats, by the Cats, for the Cats is the new world!" is a reference to the Gettysburg Address, in which Abraham Lincoln famously stated that "government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
  • There are only three enemy types in Empire of Cats: Traitless, Red and Floating.
  • In the Taiwanese Version, stages 1 and 2 are Taiwan and Hong Kong instead of Korea and Mongolia, which appear later in place of Philippines and Cambodia respectively. Due to the additions of Taiwan and Hong Kong, Philippines and Cambodia do not appear as playable stages in the Taiwanese Version. The only differences are the stage names, Treasure names and enemy bases.

Into the Future (未来編 Mirai-hen, Future Arc) is the second saga in The Battle Cats and is unlocked after clearing Chapter 1 of Empire of Cats. This mode contains 3 additional chapters, with 48 levels in each once again. This mode also introduces Timed Score Rewards, in which you gain bonus rewards depending on how quickly you complete a stage.

The main gimmick of this saga is the debut of Alien Enemies; they are extremely strong, don't give much cash, and have a 700% strength magnification by default, which can only be reduced by the anti-Alien Crystals you may obtain as Treasure.

The deployment cost for Cat Units is that of Legend Stages and EoC Chapter 2, which means you pay 1.5x for the base price of a unit. Chapters 2 and 3 don't change the price.

Version 7.4 brought Zombie Outbreaks to Chapter 1, Version 8.8 brought them to Chapter 2, and Version 9.5 brought them to Chapter 3.

Story[]

In Into the Future, the Cats have time travelled from Empire of Cats to the far future, when hostile Aliens who arrived on April 1st, 29XX have invaded every country on Earth. After stopping the invasion and defeating the Aliens, it is revealed that a rocket is being built by the Cats, alluding to Cats of the Cosmos. Unlike Empire of Cats, the English and Japanese versions of Into the Future take place across the same locations.

In all versions except the English Version, the year the Aliens landed on Earth is 900 years ahead of whatever year the device's clock is set to. For example, if the current year is 2024, the opening will say the Aliens arrived in 2924.

Bgintro
Into the Future Opening (EN)
Into the Future Ending (EN)

It is the future…
1st April, 29XX
On that day, Aliens came to this planet.


But, hey, what's this?
Was it just bad timing?
The people of Earth brushed
the visitors off like weirdos.

Their revenge on the humans who
ignored them took many forms:

Sinking Japan… Psychic activity…
Mind-control implants… Floating cities
Reality television… Unspeakable probing…


Sure, some guys weren't too happy.
But lets not worry about that.


Oh yeah, by the way:
I've been an alien from space all along.


The changes we made to earth
creatures are the symbol of our rule.
Lately, you see guys on the street
with THAT growing from their head.

Earth has no words to
explain what THAT is.

You'd definitely die of embarassment
if you tried to even describe THAT.

A real gentleman would never dare
mention THAT in public.

NEVER.

That's how awfully shocking THAT is.



Anyhow, I've got 8 of THAT
growing on my head.

We had just about invaded
every country in the world, but then…
some really troublesome guys
appeared without warning.


Their name is… Cat Army.

We heard they'd conquered the past…
and now they came to invade our future.
I mean, they didn't even look tired…


There's just one thing I
want to say to the Cat Army:


♪Aliens aren't so
bad after all ♪

Well, it is true that we sunk Japan…

Well, lets not waste any more time.
On to the greatest showdown:
ALIEN vs CAT

And so…
the Alien empire fell before
the power of the Cat Army.


A new world has emerged:
of the Cats, by the Cats, for the Cats!
This life will surely become even
more punishing and cruel! Aaagh!


Well, that's what I thought.

But…
In the end, nothing really changed.


Well, if I have to say something.
Cats star in a lot more
TV dramas these days.


That's pretty much it.


Now we have lots of cute
"big sister" characters on TV.
Aliens became less trendy
so we don't get parts anymore.


Hey, do you remember THAT?
Well, pushing and pulling on THAT
is the new comedy boom.


Oh, one more thing.

I just got back from drinking
with the Cats…

They were a little tipsy, but they
seemed very interested in our planet.

I was cornered for over an hour…
They kept asking things like:
"Is there Cat Food over there?"

They were so persistent
I finally just said, "Yeah, sure!"


Suddenly their eyes were
gleaming with childlike joy.

I hear they're building a rocket now.

Do you think…? No, there's no way…


Anyhow…
Congratulations to The Battle Cats!


Thank You Battle Cats!


Onward into an endless universe!!!

We did sink Japan, though (laughs)

Speaking of things that have changed,
the Cats asked if we wanted to
appear on TV as much as possible.

それぐらいだ
That's about it.

おかげさまで最近のTV番組では
「おねえ」キャラに次いで

Thanks to them, "Alien" characters have
become a staple
second only to "older sister" characters
in recent TV programs.

お約束となっている、

もはや、鉄板ネタだ(笑)
It's no surprise that
playing with "THAT" has become
a joke that lands every time.

あ、そうそう
Ah, yes,

「エイリアン」達とのコンパがあって
行ってきたんだけど
にゃんこ達はワレワレの世界に
とても興味を持っているらしい
The other day, the "Cats" and
"Aliens" held a konpa

とりあえず、
「宇宙にはネコカンはあるのか?」

In the meantime,
I was questioned closely for about an hour,
"Is there Cat Food in space?"

めんどくさかったので
最終的に「あるよ!」と答えたら
にゃんこ達は子供のように
目を輝かせていたのが
とっても印象的だった
It was getting very bothersome, so
I finally answered, "There is!"
The Cats' eyes gleaming
with childlike joy
really left an impression.

いつか宇宙に、にゃんこが?
ふふふ、まさかね...
Someday, could there be Cats in space?
Hahaha, there's no way, right...

どちらにせよ

Aliens[]

Into the Future introduces a new enemy trait: Alien. The trait's main gimmick is that every Alien enemy has a default strength magnification of 700% (additive to other buffs). However, there are new crystal treasures to combat this; each superior reduces the magnification by 100% (subtractive).

Note: Void Fruit, Blood Fruit, Sky Fruit and Heaven's Fruit improve effects used against the specified enemy's type:

  • The Strong Against effect goes from 1.5x damage dealt to 1.8x damage dealt, and 0.5x damage received to 0.4x damage received.
  • The Massive Damage effect goes from 3x damage dealt to 4x damage dealt.
  • The Insane Damage effect goes from 5x damage dealt to 6x damage dealt.
  • The Resistant effect goes from 1/4 damage received to 1/5 damage received.
  • The Insanely Tough effect goes from 1/6 damage received to 1/7 damage received.
  • The Freeze, Slow, Weaken, Curse and Dodge Attack effects are increased in duration by 20%.
  • Finally, the Knockback effect's distance is increased by 30%.

Like the abilities they affect, they do not stack on multi-traited enemies. There still appears to be some uncertainty about what exactly each Treasure set's effect is alone.

If the Fruit Treasures are not at an equal amount when a cat with multiple targeted traits is used against an enemy with more than one of its targets (e.g., Baby Gao vs. Bears Be Back while Blood Fruit is at 100% and other Fruit Treasures are at 200%), the Fruit Treasure with the highest % will take priority. See Treasure for more information on each Treasure.

Trivia[]

  • The Time Machine bears some resemblance to the DeLorean Time Machine from Back to the Future, as it has wheels that turn sideways like in the 2nd movie and rocket thrusters in the back.
  • In BCJP, Into the Future's map lacks the blue tint that it has in all other versions of the game.
  • In the Japanese version of the Into the Future opening, the narrator's list of ways the Aliens enacted revenge on humans (sinking Japan, creating a Floating Continent, etc.) consists of yojijukugo (four-character compounds). This is a throwback to the Japanese version of the Empire of Cats opening, in which the narrator tries using yojijukugo to stop the Cat Army's advance.
  • China, Jamaica and the Moon are the only stages to retain their positions from Empire of Cats, being respectively the 3rd, 36th and 48th locations visited in both campaigns.
  • Maldives and Hawaii are the only locations visited in Empire of Cats to not appear in Into the Future, since Floating Continent and The Great Abyss weren't in Empire of Cats, so some levels had to be replaced.
  • Ironically, none of the enemy bases from Into the Future are present in its main menu background.
  • On the far right of Into the Future's main menu background, you can see a freighter base which doesn't appear in any stage.
  • The monkey-shaped crop circle on the map is based on "The monkey", one of the many Nazca Lines of Peru.
  • Some of the crop circles on the map are shaped like the aliens from Space Invaders.
  • In the Taiwanese version, stages 3 and 21 are Taiwan and Hong Kong instead of China and the Philippines. The locations in between are all shifted forward by 1 (i.e., China is stage 4 instead of 3), changing the stage names, Treasure names and enemy bases, but not the backgrounds. Just like in the Taiwanese version of Empire of Cats, Cambodia and the Philippines do not appear as playable stages.

Not to be confused with Cats in the Stars.

Cats of the Cosmos is the third saga in The Battle Cats and is unlocked after clearing Chapter 1 of Into the Future. Like the previous sagas, it contains 3 Chapters, each with 48 stages. Cats of the Cosmos features most of the enemies introduced in Into the Future, as well as some new enemies and Stories of Legend enemies.

The main gimmick of this saga is the introduction of "Starred" Alien Enemies, which are unaffected by the Aqua Crystal and Plasma Crystal Treasures from Into the Future. Starred Aliens have a 1,600% strength magnification by default, which can only be reduced by collecting the Treasures in Cats of the Cosmos.

Chapter 1 was added in Version 6.5, Chapter 2 was added in Version 7.2 and Chapter 3 was released in Version 8.3.

Version 11.3 brought Zombie Outbreaks to Chapter 1, and Version 12.6 brought them to Chapter 2.

Story[]

As its name suggests, Cats of the Cosmos has the Cats invading the cosmos and encountering more Aliens, presumably using the rocket mentioned at the end of Into the Future. The ending reveals that the narrator of Cats of the Cosmos was Cat God and that the Cats and Aliens have discussed time travel, mind control and "all kinds of obscure technical topics" with each other. It also suggests moving onward to the realm of legend, referring to Legend Stages (although Legend Stages is unlocked earlier).

Bgintro
Cats of the Cosmos Opening
Cats of the Cosmos Ending

New Years Day, 20XX.
On the way home, I began to wonder...

How many years had it been since
the Great Cat War began?
And yet, it feels like
I never hear from you anymore.
Not even on my birthday.

The cat's meow... out-of-this-world...
most righteous... top-shelf...
king of the hill... the big cheese...

No words can express
the awesomeness that is me.

I guess people are just afraid to get
too close to true perfection?

But wait...
I just thought of something!!

Could it be? Am I asking for too much
from you, my lovely believers?

My bad (lol)



I heard that lately the most popular
holiday destination is outer space.
All the celebs are going.

For some reason everyone is totally
fascinated with Alien fashion.
It's the biggest fad of 20XX.

You didn't hear it from me, but
the radiance of the Alien empire
reaches even my neighborhood.

Well, those space guys still can't
compete with my glory, of course.


It gets pretty exhausting, being
followed around by crowds of
stylish people begging for your attention.
Such is my burden...

The question I get asked most:
"Where are your trousers?"
But telling would spoil the surprise.


OH!

Here's some big news.
I just passed by the Cats who headed
out into deep space.

They had some really important
information for all of you.


Those Aliens... they're actually
not such bad guys after all!
They're just normal folks like
you might run into in your hometown


Still, the Cats have to invade somewhere.
And so, the next adventure of
The Battle Cats begins now!!!

And so...
The Cat Empire achieved total
domination of the entire universe.

A splendid galactic federation
by the Cats, for the Cats.
The cosmos achieved total peace,
and unlimited cat food for all.

... that's the official story, but
the reality is a little different.
Everyone's daily life didn't
actually change one bit.

The one weird thing is that all
constellations now look like cats.
Cats, and only cats.

Or maybe its just me?

Actually, I was at a New Years Party
for the Cat Army and Alien Empire.
I only went to be polite, but...

These Cats and Aliens just turned
their backs and ignored me, talking
about time travel, mind control, and
all kinds of obscure technical topics.
At some point, the world went blurry...

I must have had one seltzer too many

because when I came to I was alone.

Actually, I think that was nice of them
not to wake me, because I felt very
well rested for a week after.



Oh yeah, that's right.

I was free one Tuesday, so I went
to the battlefield with the Cat Army
to kill some time.

I haven't had such a good time
since grade school gym class.

What, you believed me?
Of course I'm not serious.

Well, as the Cat God, I can't just
leave those guys to lose, right?

And you... you did great, kid.
I'm going to grant your dearest wishes.
No, not that one, you creep.

You'll see what I mean. Anyhow.


Congratulations to The Battle Cats!

Thank You Battle Cats!

Onward...
to the realm of legends!

New Features[]

Starred Aliens[]

This saga introduces a variant of the Aliens that can be identified by a yellow star badge on a part of their bodies. Even though they are categorized as Aliens, the Crystal Treasures collected in Into the Future don't affect them. They initially have a 1600% strength magnification. Collecting all Superior anti-Starred Alien Treasures in a Cats of the Cosmos chapter will reduce their stats by 500% each (1,600% - 1,100% - 600% - 100%).

Starred Aliens introduced in Chapter 1:

Starred Aliens introduced in Chapter 2:

Starred Aliens introduced in Chapter 3:

Treasure[]

For the full article, see Treasure.

This saga expands the series of "elemental" Fruit Treasures that increase the effectiveness of certain abilities against a particular type of enemy. Titanium Fruit (Metal), Antimatter Fruit (Zombie) and Enigma Fruit (Alien) are available to collect here as well as Treasure to increase XP earned, max Cat Energy and five sets of Treasure for weakening the Starred Aliens. The last Treasure on the list is the Mystery Mask, which is needed to weaken the final boss of each chapter.

Abilities[]

Main articles: Special Abilities and Barrier

This saga introduces the Warp, Immune to Warp, Barrier and Barrier Breaker abilities. Enemies with the Warp ability have a chance to bring one or a group of Cats they hit backward or forward a specific distance after an amount of time; Cats with the Immune to Warp ability will ignore this effect. Warped units will disappear from the battlefield until the warp duration ends, but still count toward the Cat Deploy Limit.

Enemies with the Barrier ability are able to ignore any damage that is weaker than the limit of their Barrier as well as any status effects that would be inflicted by those attacks. Each enemy has a Barrier with different limit and it is not affected by strength magnification. If a single attack deals more damage to a Barrier than the Barrier's health value (including additional damage from abilities such as Massive Damage or Savage Blow), the Barrier will break. After breaking the Barrier, the enemy is vulnerable to all attacks and status effects; Cats with the Barrier Breaker ability have either a percentage chance or are guaranteed to break Barriers, without having to deal higher damage than the Barrier limit.

Restrictions[]

The majority of the stages in Cats of the Cosmos have Battle Restrictions. Every 3 stages has different restrictions, with a few exceptions. The restrictions are as listed:

  • Obtaining all Superior Treasures in this chapter awards 5,000,000 XP.

Zombie Outbreaks[]

Main article: Zombie Outbreaks

In Cats of the Cosmos' Zombie Outbreaks, the only restrictions to appear are Cat Deploy Limits of 5, 10, or 15, even in stages that normally have different restrictions. Chapter 2 deviates significantly from past Outbreaks by not only reintroducing several Legend Stages Zombies like Zamelle and Formicidaean Ariant, but also adding Colossal and Behemoth enemies of other traits to many stages alongside the Zombies. See the Zombie Outbreaks article for more information.

Stages and Treasures[]

Like all other main chapters, there are 48 stages, each with a Treasure to obtain. The 48 different stages are named after real stars, nebulae, planets, a black hole and some fictional planets.

Aku Altars Appear!
Your Aku Research is complete and the Gates of Aku have opened!
Visit Empire of Cats to enter this dark realm...
The Aku Realms (魔界編 Makai-hen, lit. "Demon World Arc" or "Devil World Arc") are a special area unlocked after completing Unleashing the Cats, which in turn requires Wicked Cat, Wicked Tank, Wicked Axe to be cleared. To access this unique chapter, tap the spinning portal button labelled "The Aku Gates" above the Empire of Cats chapter. The Aku Realms were added in update 10.9.

"The Aku Gates" button

Story[]

Thanks to the Empress' Research, the Cats successfully open the gates to another plane of existence. As expected, these lands are dominated by the nefarious Aku Enemies they had previously run into, but are also dotted with evil "Aku Altars" whose magics weaken the Cats to near-powerless levels. As they soon discover, these Altars were the work of a malevolent priest with frightening power and a dastardly plot nine years in the making—"Mamon", not Hargon—who works tirelessly to undo the seals placed by legendary heroes on the god of destruction—"Jagando", not Malroth—in times long past.

Although weakened to critical levels, the Cats battle it out through the Aku Realms and regain their former power little by little, one Altar at a time. Midway through, they reach Mount Aku (Mount Fuji in the Japanese Version), where Mamon attacks them and makes off with the mountain's "crystal of awakening" needed for the final step of his plan. The Cats catch up to him and defeat him once more on the Moon (Iriomote Island in the Japanese Version), only for him to escape once more and the Cats to learn that Jagando has already been revived on Mount Aku/Mount Fuji. But even the god of destruction is no match for an army of weird cats, and with Jagando defeated once more, Mamon loses everything he had worked so hard for, his spirit utterly crushed to where, for the first time in forever, he can finally get his mind off world domination and reunite with his family.(yay!) The Aku Altars' powerful seals are universally deactivated, giving the Cats full reign in other areas where they may have obstructed their progress.

As the Cats leave the Aku Realms, the Lord of Ruin's egg in their paws, Mamon parts them farewell and sends them thanks for giving him the chance to rehabilitate, but ends his message on an ominous note: "We'll surely meet again, Battle Cats. Just you wait..."

Bgintro
The Aku Realms Opening (EN)
The Aku Realms Ending (EN)

Behold, it is I, Priest Mamon!
Dread master of the Realms of Aku!
...Nice to meet you.

Soon, my nine-year long
quest to bring the Aku Realms
under my total domination will
enter its final stage...


It has been a perilous journey...

Endless foreboding! Constant agonies!
Pandemonium! Wickedness rampant!
Tedium, disgrace and obligation!

I get a little emotional just
remembering all those good times.


Little by little, we have drawn life
force from other realms to weaken
the arcane seals that have trapped
the Lord of Ruin in eternal slumber.

We will add the power of the revived
Lord of Ruin to our legion of evil, and
complete our rule of the Aku Realms.


MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
MWAHAHAHAHA... ha...


...what's this??
A weirdly cute army, brimming with
life energy, have broken the barrier
between mortal realms and our world.

The Gates of Aku have opened!


We must seal the Gates before...
What's this? "Meow meow"?!?!
How uncouth! How annoying!


No matter.
Such foolish creatures...
let us call them... "Cats"...
We shall deal with them in time.


There are more pressing matters:
A crystal of awakening has been
found in the caldera of Mount Aku!

We must find it immediately!
With the crystal's power, the ritual of
rebirth for the Lord of Ruin can begin!

And if some fool does dare interfere...
the dark magics of the Aku Altars
will weaken them enough that our
armies can crush them with ease.

A flawless plan! We cannot be stopped!


And so...
The Aku Realms: Dark Priest's Desire
begins! MWAHAHAHAHA!!!!

And so
the freshly awoken Lord of Ruin
was once again sealed into
eternal slumber by the Cats.


Our ambitions of total domination
of the Aku Realms, plotted for
so long... all in vain...


A netherworld ruled
by the Cats, for the Cats...
uniting all planes of
existence in one grand empire.


That was the plan, but...
in the end, nothing really
changed for daily life
among the Aku.


The one big change is that
now all Aku pacts with mortal
beings now include a signing
bonus of extra Cat Food.

But it's none of my business now...


The Seals created by the Aku Altars
to drain away life energy to the
dark Realms have all been dispelled.

I too... have lost everything...


From the shadows,
I watched the war between Cats
and the Lord of Ruin unfold.

Just before the Lord of Ruin was
sent back to his eternal slumber,
something came out of his mouth.

It looked like the Cats took it
back as a souvenir. If only I'd
realized sooner just what it was!


And so, several days later...

With my ambitions crushed, I returned
to the mortal world for the first time
in many years. Family and friends,
gathered for dinner and then a
stroll around the smoking caldera...

And somehow, I felt like I could
find happiness in a simple life,
free of domination and destruction.


I'LL GET YOU SOMEDAY,
BATTLE CATS!!!
Also... thank you,
Battle Cats...


We'll surely meet again,
Battle Cats. Just you wait...

魔界の裏に存在する異界から
すこーしずつ、気付かれずに集めた
生命エネルギーやら何やらを使い
破壊神の封印を解くのだ
Little by little, we have discreetly taken life energy
and such from another world that exists on the
other side of the Devil World in order to break
the God of Destruction's seal.

破壊神を蘇らせ
絶大な力を手に入れたとき
By reviving the God of Destruction,
we will gain immense power.

魔界は完全に我が手に落ちるであろう
The Devil World will fall completely into our hands.

ふはははははははは!
ふははは...
Fuhahahahahahahaha!
Fuhaha...

はがっ...?
隣の世界から生命エネルギーと
一緒に妙な生き物が大量に
紛れ込んできているではないか
Huh...?
A lot of strange creatures
are mingled in with the
life energy from the neighboring world?

なぜ、魔界の扉が全開になっているのだ!?
Why is the Devil World's gate fully open!?

しっかり閉めておかね.... ええい!にゃーにゃー うるさいヤツらだ Close it tightly...
Eh! "Meow meow"?
These guys are obnoxious!

まあ、よかろう
バカげた見た目の生き物だが
ヤツらのことはとりあえず
「にゃんこ」とでも呼んでおこう
Well, very well.
Such fooling-looking creatures,
let's call them "Cats" or
something for now.

そして、連中に構っているヒマはない
富士山の頂に隠された
目覚めの水晶ーー
We don't have time to worry about that lot.
Hidden atop Mount Fuji is a
crystal of awakening.

さっさと手に入れ
破壊神復活の儀を
執り行うこととしよう
We must get it into our hands immediately.
With it, the ritual of rebirth
for the God of Destruction can begin.

もし、何者かが
我が儀式を邪魔してこようとも
悪魔の城の魔力によって
無力と化すであるう
And if someone tries to interfere with our ritual,
the magical power of the Devil Fortresses
will render them powerless.

我の魔界征服計画に抜かりなし!
My plan to conquer the Devil World is flawless!

...というわけで
魔界編〜神官マモーンの野望〜
はじまりなのだ!!
...and so,
Devil World Arc ~Priest Mamon's Ambition~
begins!!

こうして
復活したばかりの破壊神は
にゃんこ軍団によって
再び封印の眠りについた…
And so,
the freshly revived God of Destruction
was once again sealed into slumber
by the Cat Army.

魔界の完全支配という
長年、夢見ていた我が野望は
はかなく散ってしまった
Our ambitions of total domination
of the Devil World, dreamt of
for so many years, all in vain.

にゃんこ軍団の
にゃんこ軍団による
にゃんこ軍団の為の魔界支配が
はじまってしまうのだ…
A Devil World ruled by the Cat Army,
of the Cat Army,
for the Cat Army,
has begun...

…と思っていたのだが
けっきょく
魔界の暮らしが変わることは
まったく無かった
...was what I thought, but,
in the end,
there was no change
to life in the Devil World at all.

変わったことと言えば
魔界の悪魔たちが
悪魔契約のオマケにネコカンを
サービスするようになったらしい
Speaking of things that have changed,
it seems the Devils are
now offering Cat Food as
a bonus for Devil contracts.

まぁ我には関係ないがな…
Well, it's none of my business...

異界から生命エネルギーを
収集していた悪魔の城が完全停止
封印の魔力もなくなり
The Devil Fortresses have completely stopped
taking life energy from the other world, and
the magical power of their seals has been dispelled.

我も…すべてを失ってしまった…
I, too... have lost everything...

そういえば…
Come to think of it...

にゃんこ軍団と破壊神の戦いを
物陰でのぞいていたのだが
I watched the fight between the Cat Army
and the God of Destruction from the shadows.

破壊神が眠りにつく前
口から出したあの丸いモノは
結局、何だったのであろうか
In the end, what was that round thing that
came out the the God of Destruction's mouth
just before he was sent back to his slumber?

にゃんこ軍団がお土産に
持って帰ったようだが
今の我には知るすべがない
It seems as if the Cat Army brought
it back home as a souvenir, but
there's no way for me to know right now.

…数日が経ち
...A few days passed.

野望を失った我は
ふと、数年ぶりに地元に帰って
家族で食事を囲んだり
幼なじみと噴火口を散歩したり
していたわけだが…
Having suddenly lost my ambition,
I went back to my hometown for the
first time in several years.
Eating dinner surrounded by family,
going for a stroll around the crater
with a childhood friend...

この何気ない日常に
本当の幸せってやつを
見つけられたような気がしている
It feels like I found
true happiness in
this casual everyday life.

コノヤロウ
にゃんこ軍団!
そして…ありがとう
にゃんこ軍団!
Cat Army,
you bastards!
Also… thank you,
Cat Army!

にゃんこ軍団よ
また、会おう!!
Cat Army,
we'll meet again!!



Theend

Explanation[]

This is basically a bonus chapter of Empire of Cats, with its own map and stages, but there are some catches. First, the stages become available out of order, with Korea/Nagasaki always being the first, but after that, some stages are randomly chosen to temporarily become available for the duration of 3 hours, after which new stages are picked and those that were not completed become unavailable again. Those that were completed stay available forever (this does not include the invasion on Mount Aku/Mount Fuji). Although random, note that the selection is most likely to involve early stages and will probably not go too far after the furthest stage that is completed, meaning that after Korea/Nagasaki, you probably won't get stages in the second half of the map. Tap the "Aku Altar Appears!" button at the stage select screen to move immediately to the first of the currently available Aku Altar stages. Tapping the same button again will take you to the next available stage.
E 574

The Aku Altar

The main gimmick of the Aku Realms is the Aku Altar and its ability to restrict unit levels. Cats are initially reverted to level 1 (only during battle) and have their + levels invalidated. After beating Korea/Nagasaki, the restriction will rise to level 2 for whichever stage to play next, then increases by one after first clearing that next stage and so on. This continues until the 49th stage is beaten and the level restriction reaches 50, with + levels staying disabled all the way. The order of the stages in the map is irrelevant for this; whichever stage you play sixth will be the one in which your cats will be forced to level 6 and so on. This means that it would be optimal to play the stages in order (by waiting for the next to be randomly picked as one of the available stages), as most of the stages are generally in order from easiest to hardest on the map, as one would expect. Not doing so may result in level 10 units having to be used in a stage balanced for level 20 ones, then maybe, level 40 units being available for one of the very first five stages, which would therefore be a free win.

Note that the units used will still keep their current form, meaning that the level restriction only affects the starting stats (Eraser Cat, for example, will revert to level 1, but stay in True Form, so its stats will be higher than a level 1 Tank Cat).

Stages and Rewards[]

The Aku Realms' stages take place in the same locations as normal, but there is one added stop which appears as stage 30: Mount Aku/Mount Fuji, increasing the total number of stages to 49. This stage drops an Aku Catfruit when cleared for the first time. After completing the Moon/Iriomote stage, you will receive a one-time Gold Catfruit and unlock an invasion in Mount Aku/Mount Fuji, where you will encounter Lord of Ruin Jagando. Complete the invasion to receive a Platinum Ticket, unlock Jagando Jr., and strip the Aku Altar of its ability to disable + levels.

Treasures still take effect here, but there are no new ones to collect.

Aku Enemies[]

As its name suggests, the Aku Realms are home to a variety of Aku Enemies, some of which cannot be found elsewhere.

The strength magnifications vary for each Aku, starting out low but reaching endgame levels in the last few stages.

Appearance Pattern[]

Compared to Zombie Outbreaks, the Aku Realms has more consistency to when and which stages will appear, which is dependent on how many have already been cleared. Every 2 hours and 59 minutes, the game will choose up to 5 random stages and then roll the die for each one; if successful, the stage will become available, and if not, the game will try again after another 2 hours and 59 minutes. The number and selection of stages that can be chosen are based on the player's current Level Seal; the higher the Seal, the greater the range of candidates for playable stages.

Trivia[]

  • The text on the background of uncleared Aku Realm stage buttons is upside-down katakana which translates to: "Stealing energy from another world; the Devils' Fortress seals levels."
  • The book next to the "Aku Altar Appears!" button looks the same as Possessed Empress' cursed grimoire.
  • According to the intro, the full title of the chapter is "The Aku Realms: Dark Priest's Desire".
  • Although it is called "The Aku Realms", the button says "The Aku Gates", possibly meaning that the button itself is the entrance.
  • The length of Mamon's 9-year scheme is the same as between the release of Nyanko Daisensou (2012) and update 10.9 (2021), as well as how long it took for Princess Cat to finish reading every book in the royal library.
  • The Aku Realms were mentioned in Aku Cyclone's descriptions, Aku Researcher's Japanese description and Evil Aku Researcher's sign before being added to the game.
  • The Aku Realms' Japanese logo resembles the Japanese Ghosts 'n Goblins logo.
