This Cyclone requires a lot of Critical Hits to defeat. It is the slowest Cyclone, but its debut stage's length is much shorter to compensate. As it is a Metal enemy, normal attacks won't work against it, so do not try to fight this enemy until you have a decent Critical Hitter.
Similarly to other Cyclones, this enemy attacks fast and deals a lot of damage, but has a very short, easy to exploit range.
Catasaurus is extremely helpful against this mechanical monstrosity, especially if Talented, due to his critical hits and the fact you don't have to worry if one dies due to their spammability. It can even work before his True Form as a matter of fact, except that before it it offers less consistency and worse range. If you have them, other anti-Metal cats and critical hitters, notably certain Ubers like Paladin Cat, Hayabusa or Sakura Sonic can provide massive help against this foe, as most other units are useless against it.
However, despite his menacing health for a Metal enemy and DPS, Metal Cyclone suffers due to being one of the slowest enemies in the game, with a pitiful 2 movement speed, and this is hindered even further by being the enemy with the 4th shortest range in the game, which means even the mostpatheticofcritters can actually work against this Cyclone if RNG doesn't choose to go against you.
