Retreat of the Living Dead is the fourth stage in Bazaar of the Pirate King.


  • The enemy base here is a Surge Base.
  • 4 Relic Doges spawn after 10 seconds300f, delay 20~23.33 seconds600f~700f.
  • 1 Zang Roo spawns after 36.67 seconds1,100f.
  • When the base reaches 99% HP:
    • 1 Golem Sunfish spawns as the boss.
    • Infinite Relic Doges spawn, delay 33.33~40 seconds1,000f~1,200f.
    • 8 Relic Doges spawn, delay 10 seconds300f.
    • 2 Zang Roos spawn after 13.33 seconds400f, delay 53.33~56.67 seconds1,600f~1,700f.
    • 3 Zapies spawn, delay 33.33~36.67 seconds1,000f~1,100f.


This stage is extremely dangerous due to the presence of Golem Sunfish which can render your anti-Zombie specialists useless with its 8-second curse that has full uptime, while the Surge Base forces you to play it safe and close to your own base. Zang Roo and Relic Doge's area attacks destroy small meatshields easily, leaving the Zapies to push with terrifying ease.

Try to eliminate the first wave of Relic Doges and the Zang Roo with other attackers before hitting the base.

Strategy 1 (4 Crown)[]

Lineup: Biohazard, Bony Bone, Little Warriors, Li'l Eraser Cat 50+28, Cameraman Cat 50+18, Future Cat 50, Shigong Cat 50+11, Cadaver BearCat 50, Awakened Doron 50, Awakened Urs 50

Cannon: Holy blast


  • Rich Cat is ridiculously recommended.
  • Money is scarce is this level. Better research combos may prove detrimental (UNTESTED).
  • Cat Chief is a recommended unit to use.
  • Li'l Eraser Cat has the HP up MAX talent.
  • Cameraman Cat has the Survivor MAX, Critical, and HP up MAX talents.
  • Holyblast must be level 3 or higher
  • Breakerblast can be used instead of Holyblast if you do not have a level 3+ Holyblast.

There are only 5 enemies that spawn prior to base hit, so kill all of them and then stall for max money.

Once you are at max, spam only Future Cat, Cameraman Cat, and Li’l Eraser Cat. at around 14000¢, start spamming Cadaver BearCat and Shigong Cat. If you have Cat Chief, start spamming him as well.

When Zang Roo buries, use Holyblast to keep it above ground. When the enemies have pushed you halfway through the stage, you can consider sendout out Awakened Urs. Keep chipping away at the Zappies, and you should be able to whittle them down till they die for good


  • Both the English and Japanese names of Retreat of the Living Dead reference the film The Return of the Living Dead. The name of the stage in the Japanese Version is pronounced similarly to Battalion, the Japanese name of The Return of the Living Dead. Through this, it can also be assumed that its name in the English Version is meant to reference the film's original English title.
