Normal/Evolved Form

Red Riding Mina is a very useful long-range attacker, one of the few non-gacha units that can snipe enemies such as Calamary, Professor A. and Rain D. from behind the frontlines. Unfortunately her health and attack power in her Normal/Evolved Form pales in comparison to similar Uber/Legend Rares, which means that you will mostly only use her in Restriction Stages, unless you happen to encounter a stage where you are able to stack Minas at the beginning; most specifically, you will stack her behind your own Cat Base, usually with the support of Crowd-Controller-class Cats like Onmyoji Cat or Prof. Cat Jobs. Furthermore, should you be using those crowd-controllers, it is recommended to use "Weaken" Effect UP Cat Combos like Power of Darkness or Cat High in order to ensure Mina's safety.

True Form

Awakened Mina gains a higher effective range, higher base stats, and on top of that, the ability to weaken Relics, albeit with a 50% chance. As specifically anti-Relic abilities are uncommon outside of Talents, the niche in and of itself is important, as it allows her to counter dangerous enemies like Othom and M. Ost. So, whenever she does weaken, it can change the tide of the battle, as it helps Primordial Cat and your other meatshields survive for longer. With this new addition, stacking her is even more important as it increases her chances to weaken to almost guaranteed! However, if you have Slapstick Cats' Talents, you'll likely rely on them for weaken instead of Mina.

Weaken aside, unlocking this form doubles her DPS and increases her piercing range to 265. Overall, she is a worthy use of your Elder Catfruit, and is useful and relevant in numerous late-game stages. With all this being said, do not let any enemies enter her blind spot unless you are trying to stack her, as most opponents encountered this late deal extremely high damage even on 1-Crown difficulty, and Mina has no abundance of health to safely tank any dangerous hits.

Catfruit Evolution

RedSeed.png x10 RedFruit.png x10
RainbowFruit.png x5 AncientFruit.png x1
Blank.png XP.png1,000,000


  • Normal Form: Appears as a young girl with cat characteristics; wears a similar getup to fairytale character Little Red Riding Hood. Carries a basket holding Killer Cats and has an assassin's kunai strapped to her upper thigh. Uses a bazooka improbably concealed in her basket to attack with Killer Cats as ammo.
  • Evolved Form: Her dress, in general, has become darker and is more detailed. She now has stockings, boots, gloves, and bows on her basket and on her head.
  • True Form: Now fully colored with some forest friends accompanying her. She is trailed by a raccoon, squirrels, rabbits and has two blue birds nested on her hood. During her attack animation, the animals are noticeably startled and tremble until the attack's completion.



  • Other than resembling a famously known folktale character Little Red Riding Hood, Mina's appearance, personality, and arsenal may be inspired by the Vampire Savior character Baby Bonnie Hood, who dons an innocent "red riding hood" appearance but in reality is a psychopath. She appears with devilish eyes whenever she is seen attacking, similar to Mina. Hidden in her basket are various weaponry, such as landmines, an Uzi, or, just like Mina, a bazooka.
    • The way Awakened Mina's animals cower in fear when Mina is attacking is also reminiscent of how Baby Bonnie Hood's dog Harry cowers in fear when she attacks.
  • Version 6.7 increased Mina's range from 400 to 435.
  • Unlike other Legend Cats, her silhouette shown when entering Legend Stages doesn't give a preview of her attack animation.
  • Mina has an implied rivalry with Valkyrie Cat, as together they form a Cat Combo named "Rivalry". This Cat Combo increases the Worker Cat's starting level by a small amount.
    • Crimson Mina's Japanese description confirms this directly.
  • Her bazooka being broken refers to how it had longer reach before she joined the Cat Army.
  • She uses an exploding Killer Cat as a rocket, even though he wasn't an actual unit when Mina was introduced.
