Strategy/Usage

Matador Cat has the niche of dodging the attacks of Red enemies, a rare one in the Cat Army. However, its usage is limited by the low activation chance (30%), low health and high cost of 540¢. The cooldown doesn't help either. Because of this, Matador is outclassed by many other cats at its role, such as Thor Cat, Fried Shrimp Cat and often generalist meatshields too. Because of this, its use is only recommended in complete absence of alternatives.

True Form

Speed and health bring little to this unit, who stays too weak relative to its cost for its stats to really matter. For this reason, it is not recommended to give much priority to this evolution, unless there is the intention to invest in talents.

Talents

Target Aku makes her a viable meatshield in several Aku-centred stages. Slow is hard to utilize because of her short range, meaning that most enemies would be standing still anyway if Bellydance could hit them, plus there are far better options for anti-Red crowd control. Resist Freeze is meant to improve her performance in presence of Cerberus Kids and in some specific situations, but it's unlikely to make much of a difference; it should, therefore, be unlocked only if a situation calls for it. Health Buff and Attack Buff are good boosts for this unit, but not worth it unless she is already boosted by + levels.
