Rinrin Shelterbelt is the first stage in Kombu Cape.
Ten of each highly buffed Gory, Gory Black and Angelic Gory are the bosses in this stage. Gory is spawned at a medium rate as a peon before the other Gories appear. Metal Doge is also here so make sure to bring a critical hitter.
Use a small number of meatshields and ranged dealers like Manic Flying Cat or Crazed Sexy Legs Cat to kill the first few Gories. Try not to gain too much ground; try to maintain a stalemate between your Cats and the periodic Gories. Max out your worker, then start spamming meatshields and strong AoE DPS units. Quickly kill the Metal Doges (Hurricat is immensely helpful against them), and then use all your units to kill the Black and Angelic Gories.
Any fairly quick Area attacker works, the Ubers with shorter attack animations and better DPS over higher damage per hit does so as well since Gory variants usually tend to have high knockback amount
(Zory is the exception, but he's not even in the stage). Ubers with shorter recharge time or higher knockback amount can help out here since they'll keep some field if the Gories push to where they stand. Notable examples are:
- Twinstars and/or Kalisa - They have high knockback count, short recharge time, fair standing range, and high DPS (Paired with fairly quick attack animation/attack cycle). Not to mention, any of them will benefit you a lot, since they deal massive damage to one of the Gories the stage brings against you.
- Kasa Jizo - Jizo is easily the best uber to use in this stage. Stackable, and excellent against both of the Gories you face here.
- King Gamereon - Not a DPS rusher unlike the aforementioned units, but he makes a very powerful wall against the Gories. Make sure the Metal Doges don't cripple him down, though.
