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 short, easy to exploit range.
Cats obtained from the other Cyclone Stages are highly recommended for taking down the Metal Cyclone, along with Crazed Whale Cat, Island Cat and cheap meatshields. Jurassic Cat is almost useless, but Catasaurus may be of some help against this mechanical monstrosity, especially if Talented. If you have them, other Anti-Metal Cats and Critical Hitters, notably certain Ubers, can provide massive help against this foe, as most units are useless against it.
