Strategy 1 (ft Nurse Wuffa)
- Power-ups: Rich Cat, Sniper the Cat
- First row: Manic Mohawk (30), Manic Tank (30), Metal Cat (Level 20), Manic Lion (30), Manic Island (30)
- Second row: Fishman Cat (35), Seafarer Cat (34), Maglev Cat (33), Cyberpunk Cat (33), Awakened Bahamut (30)
- Notes: Having a Rich Cat and a Metal Cat is required for having this strategy work because Zeruel 1-shots practically everything except EVA units (it deals 150,000 damage.) Having a high-leveled Cyberpunk and Maglev can help you out significantly here for crowd control, money, and time. The Sniper Cat is not technically required but also really helpful because Zeruel is immune to all other debuffs, and because it allows for your damage dealers to get more hits in. Seafarer is used for his cost-effectiveness and his 50% chance to survive a lethal strike.
- Spawn Metal Cats whenever you can. They are your main meatshields. When you have enough money for a Cyberpunk Cat, send one out. Having a stack of these is crucial because the battle only gets more difficult the longer you drag it out, similar to Heavenly Tower's Floor 30 and 40.
- When the peons start to spawn, use your damage dealing cats to kill them (Maglev, FIshman, Seafarer, Manic Island,) and spawn a Manic Lion to prevent Gabriels from pushing. Continue doing this, making sure your cats get a hit on either Zeruel or the peons without dying, until Zeruel dies. This takes a while.
- Note that the Zoge has 30,000 health, the Ginger Snache has 36,000, the Doge Dark has 40,000, the Gabriel has 52,000, and the Gory has 60,000 health. What this means if you're low on money (if you're bad at timing like me so you spam everything, not Nurse Wuffa) is that you should use Maglev/Bullet Train Cat to mop up kills. The table below gives you the minimum level needed to one-shot the one-shottable peons with Maglev/Bullet Train Cat, along with the damage that Maglev/Bullet Train does. Bullet Train caps out at 47,250 damage without Cat Combos, so Gabriel is not in this list.
|Cat||Zoge (30k)||G. Snache (36k)||Doge Dark (40k)|
|Maglev Cat||Level 36 (30,000 dmg)||Level 44 (36,000 dmg)||Level 50 (40,500 dmg)|
|Bullet Train Cat||Level 31 (30,625 dmg)||Level 38 (36,750 dmg)||Level 42 (40,250 dmg)|
Strategy 2 (Cheese, ft EVA collab units)
Once you get Kaworu and Cat from PONOS (August 13th, 2020 for the current collab,) use the You Will Find Happiness Combo with Shinji and Cat to boost your EVA-killer ability from 5x to 25x. Then literally spawn any Uber with the EVA-Angel killer ability 3 times to kill Zeruel.
|Chuck||Strategy 2 - Requires (1) Kaworu and Cat, (2) Shinji and Cat, and (3) Any EVA Uber with the EVA-Killer ability|
