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, but also reduces movement speed. As of version 6.0, his Normal and Evolved Form do two hits per attack.

See here to know how to classify units
The classification represents what the unit does best


  • Ninja Cat is extremely potent early on, enough to beat Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 of Empire of Cats by himself.
  • Ninja Cat is also very useful in treasure farming in Eoc, essentially being a faster and stronger Axe Cat.
  • He can 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 Ninja Cat becomes useless due to Dark Cat and Crazed Axe 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.
    • He is very useful for Maldives/Tokushima (Empire of cats).

  • Calculations might not perfectly correspond to actual data.
  • HP = Health ; AP = Attack Power ; DPS = Damage Per Second
    1 Movement Speed = 15 Range per second
  • f = frames ; 30f = 1 second ; Attack Animation = Idle + Foreswing + Backswing (frames)
  • Catseye, User Rank and game progress are essential to achieving max level, see Level-up for details.
  • See this section for treasure effects.


  • Normal Form: Looks like a regular Cat wearing a ninja costume.
  • Evolved Form: Sits on top of another Ninja Cat wearing a frog costume and now has visible hair.
  • True Form: Abandoned the frog. Gains a parachute bag. Throws shurikens to attack.



  • Ninja Cat is one of the only cats that becomes weaker in its True Form, as it has a slower movement speed (but gains decreased deploy cost).
  • Ninja Cat's position is higher form by form.
  • Ninja Frog Cat may be a reference to the Japanese book 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's method of flight is very similar in appearance to T.A.C Kirby, or may be a reference to Cape Mario.
