This article is about the Cat Unit. For the enemy unit, see Flying Ninja Cat (Enemy).

Ninja Cat is a Special Cat that can be purchased for 50 Cat Food in the Upgrade Menu after completing Philippines in Empire of Cats Chapter 1. True Form decreases deploy cost by 25%, but lowers movement speed by 3. It is the first Special Cat that you can use in gameplay. In version 6.0, this cat's first two forms gained the multi-hit ability.

Flying ninja cat


Evolves into Ninja Frog Cat at level 10.

Evolves into Flying Ninja Cat when obtained from the Ninja Awakens! Stages (may drop on the first stage but guaranteed on the second stage) and is level 20 or above.


  • Rapid attack rate and animation.
  • Strong against Red enemies.
  • Fast and cheap to produce. (Even cheaper in True Form)
  • Performs two hits per attack, except in True Form.
  • Has 6 Useful CatCombos


  • Low stamina and attack power.
  • Short-ranged attacks.
  • Single-target attack.
  • True Form has decreased movement speed.


  • Buy this cat as soon as you can and use him instead of Axe Cat (Cat Unit)
  • This cat can beat Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 of Empire of Cats by himself.
  • He can also be useful in stages with (mainly) Red enemies as a spammable meatshield, especially in the Growing Red stages and Red Alert (though that may be a bit of a stretch).
  • While this unit becomes useless due to Dark Cat, he is part of one of the most useful Combos in the game: Cool Japan, which provides a Medium (15%) attack boost to all your units.
  • On some Metal Enemies, use his second form as he does multi-hit, as opposed to Flying Ninja.

  • Flying Ninja Cat's method of flight may be a reference to Cape Mario .
  • His evolved form could be a reference season two of Naruto, when he learns to summon a giant toad.
