Papaluga is an Uber Rare Cat that was added in Version 9.6 and can be unlocked by playing the Rare Cat Capsule during the Tales of the Nekoluga event. True Form introduced in Version 11.3 increases HP, extends Curse duration and is immune to Surges.

Strategy/Usage

Normal Form

This form is useless by design. Similarly to the other cats from Tales of the Nekoluga, this cat is not meant to be used until it evolves.

Evolved Form

Although the Curse ability might sound exciting, it's impractical if not outright useless in most scenarios. Regardless of the core usefulness of the ability being very minimal, Papalan Pasalan's Curse does not function properly due to his not having 100% uptime. The downtime between attacks will give enemies a chance to counter-attack and, usually, that ends with Papalan Pasalan being a waste of money, unless he has great support. Should you ever use this "cat", he should be used wisely, for it takes very little for him to be reached and killed in a second or two. He should also never be used against Long Distance enemies or wave/surge attackers.

True Form

Sukelan Kakulan's most notable buff is complete immunity to Surges. This is an improvement, but it only really means that Sukelan won't directly die to surges that spawn in his position; a surge spawning on him would still mean problems to the units that are supposed to protect him, which are fundamental, due to his low survivability. Only resistant meatshields, a Cat Combo-buffed Stone Cat or Talented Gato Amigo function as a valid defense, while even less cats may work as mid-ranged attackers against surges, leading to a quick demise for Sukelan. He is, however, a great counter to Red EnerG if paired with Roe Cats.

In addition to surge immunity and an irrelevant improvement to his still-pitiful health, his Curse lasts for one second longer, but he still doesn't come to close to having 100% uptime. On top of all that, Sukelan requires both an Elder Catfruit and a Gold Catfruit Seed to evolve, making this True Form evolution very expensive for what it's worth.

Trivia

  • Papaluga's Japanese name, Oiruga, is derived from おいる oiru, meaning "growing old".
  • Papaluga and Furiluga are the only Lugas whose Normal Forms' English and Japanese names are entirely different from one another.
  • Sukelan Kakulan is a reference to Mitsuemon, the false identity of Tokugawa Mitsukuni in the long-running period drama Mito Kōmon. Both have white beards, wear the same accessories, and use a cane as a weapon. His name comes from Suke-san and Kaku-san, Mitsukini's samurai retainers.
  • Papaluga is the only Luga whose True Form references a television drama as opposed to an anime or video game.
    • Papaluga is also the only Luga whose True Form's English name doesn't have "Pasalan" in it.
