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 reduces movement speed. As of version 6.0, his normal and evolved forms do two hits per attack.

Ninja frog cat

Flying ninja cat


Evolves into Ninja Frog Cat at level 10.

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


  • Strong against Red Enemies.
  • Fast attack rate and animation.
  • Low Cost, especially in True Form.
  • Fast recharge rate.
  • Included in many Combos.
  • True form has no longer multi-hit attack, causing less times to miss the second attack


  • Low stamina.
  • Low attack power.
  • Short-ranged attacks.
  • Single-target attacks.
  • True Form moves slower.
  • Multi-hit in Normal and Evolved forms can knockback enemies before the second attack.


  • Ninja Cat is extremely potent early on, enough to beat Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 of Empire of Cats by himself.
  • 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.

*First stats are 1st form's initial, second and third stats include 300% Empire of Cats Treasures; recharge time may vary.
*Time between attacks is the time of the attack from the attack's execution until the next attack animation starts (includes backswing).
For units with multi-hit attacks, attack animation is the part of the animation leading up to the first hit.
*See this section to calculate Ninja Cat's stats.

Initial Stats:

  • 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 season 2 of Naruto, when he learns to summon a giant toad.
  • 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.
