Battle Cats Wiki
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/Oita in Empire of Cats Chapter 1. True Form decreases deploy cost and movement speed, whilst also removing his Multi-Hit. As of Version 6.0, his Normal and Evolved Forms do 2 hits per attack.

Ninja Cat is extremely potent early on, having straight-up better stats than Axe Cat. It is recommended to buy him right at the point of unlocking, as he alone can carry through the whole first, second and the early portion of the third chapter, but this cat's use decreases quickly afterwards, quickly becoming outclassed by Dark Cat (as he gets + levels) and Crazed Axe Cat, two Cats that aren't even very strong to begin with. Ninja Cat is also part of the Cool Japan Combo, which provides a medium (15%) attack boost to all your units; this is a very useful combo and is worth bringing into many stages, mainly due to its synergy with Awakaned Bahamut Cat.

True Form

Flying Ninja Cat becomes slower and cheaper. Since his stats are unsalvageable by the time this form is unlocked, all that matters is its quality as a disposable meatshield, which is decreased by the slower speed. At the very least, however, his cost becomes closer to that of a unit that is expected to die in one hit, but it is still too high. Thus, regardless the minor improvements, Ninja Cat still has such a low health that, even against Reds, this unit's use is not recommended at all, while not having the cost of a meatshield, rendering him a useless combo-slave and nothing else. Overall, this form's only purpose is making Talents available for this unit.


Flying Ninja Cat's usage as a meatshield is improved dramatically by its Dodge talent as, with it, Flying Ninja Cat goes from being little more than a more expensive Mohawk Cat in practice to a unit who can hold off decently well against even the strongest Red enemies. Speed helps this unit out a lot too, as it allows meatshields to be generally more effective and to clog the enemy limit less.

Since its base stats are really low, Defense Buff and Attack Buff won't improve this cat much and Target Black is only useful with Dodge Attack. Since Black enemies deal immense overall damage, it's safe to assume that Flying Ninja Cat will die from only one hit when the dodge ability doesn't trigger. Overall, optionally worth the investments but by no means required.

  • Ninja Cat's position is higher form by form.
  • Ninja Frog Cat might be a reference to the Japanese book The Tale of the Gallant Jiraiya, where a man saves a giant toad from an even bigger snake. The toad then teaches him toad magic, with one of the spells letting the man spawn a toad to aid him in battle.
  • Flying Ninja Cat is based on the common trope of ninjas gliding around with either a kite or something else.
  • Flying Ninja Cat's movement animation might also be a reference to the Cape Feather from Super Mario World.
  • According to the description of a trap from The Burgle Cats, Ninja Cat is a female.
