Strategy/Usage

This is a very useful support cat for nearly all of Into the Future, some parts of Cats of the Cosmos, and Alien-heavy levels in Stories of Legend. Alongside Surfer Cat, this cat is exceptional at controlling alien enemies and keeping their threat level to a minimum. Stacks of Neo Psychocats keep Alien enemies at a distance while your anti-Alien heavy hitters like Macho Leg and Chill Cat beat them to a pulp, he also outranges both Raging Bahamut Cat and Corrupted Valkyrie, allowing you to keep them slowed so your Uber Rares and Legend Cats rip them to shreds.

True Form

Corrupted Psychocat gains more health, doubled speed, less time between attacks and a faster attack animation. The health improvement is minor, but it is still nice regardless. The doubled speed is a great help. One of Psychocat's main issues was his abysmally low speed. This would allow the threat advance a lot farther whilst Psychocat is trying to get to the frontline. This increase in speed fixes this issue which allows Psychocat to neutralize the threat before it pushes too far forward. The less time between attacks and a faster attack animation increase his reliability at slowing Aliens and is just a nice improvement in general.

Talents

Corrupted Psychocat has the potential to become quite a bit better, once his talents are unlocked. Target Zombie allows him to aid the otherwise unreliable alternatives in stalling zombies, but he can't hope to live long; Health up isn't enough of an improvement to fix the low survivability, but helps. Weaken and Slow Up are the most important abilities, after possibly Zombie Target, as they improve this unit's performance by quite a lot. What isn't addressed by the talents is the lack of Area Attacks, which still limits Psychocat to single threats, rather than groups of enemies.

Freeze resistance should be avoided, as Psychocat is unlikely to survive hits in the first place.

Talents

  • Defense Buff: Upgrades health by 2% per level up to 20%. (Total Cost: 75 NP)

Appearance

  • Normal Form: A cat with black hair and a spoon in one of its paws. Attacks by enlarging the spoon and smacking the target, bending and losing the spoon in the process. Regains spoon before attack animation ends. Eyes glow gray while enlarging the spoon.
  • Evolved Form: Loses the spoon, his hair is now white and his suit ripped. Has a small portal floating above his hands. Attacks by charging the portal before flinging it at target into small explosion. Eyes glow purple instead during attack animation.
  • True Form: Levitates in the air. His hair flows upwards wildly. He has black headphones, a black suit and a black poncho/cape. He radiates a purple aura. His eyes also glow purple. Has a purple galaxy-shaped object hovering near his arm (presumably a portal). Explosion is greater. Also, a purple aura emerges for an instant around the projectile and cat during attack animation, eyes glowing even darker purple in that instant.

Trivia

  • His normal form looks similar to 009/Joe Shimamura from Cyborg 009. The shawl and the uniform also resemble the cyborg group's uniform. The spoon is a clear reference to famous illusionist and self-proclaimed psychic Uri Geller (potentially by way of his Pokémon, Alakazam).
  • The evolved form's description is a reference to the battle between Gotenks and Super Buu in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, in the saga Dragon Ball Z. His appearance is basically a Super Saiyan.
  • Corrupted Psychocat's description is somewhat like the mindset of the Final Fantasy villain Xande and Neo Exdeath. Their goals are both the result of a corruption and plan to eventually bring the whole of the universe into nothingness.
  • Psychocat is currently the only Rare Cat to have both movement speed and attack speed increased in True Form.
  • The Galaxy-shaped object in its true form resembles Frieza's Death Slicer.
