Silk Road (シルクロード Shiruku Rōdo, Silk Road) is the 20th sub-chapter of Stories of Legend. Released on December 19th, 2014 (update version 3.2.0 of the Japanese Version), this sub-chapter is available up to 4★ difficulty.


Silk Road is by far the hardest sub-chapter up to this point, even harder than Low Tide Beach, Jail Break Tunnel and Capone's Jail. Every stage here is at least somewhat difficult and requires a different strategy, so expect to change your lineup frequently. Having most if not all of the Crazed Cats and True Form Normal Cats is highly recommended for this sub-chapter.

One of the hardest stages is Marco Po Road, which becomes almost unbeatable if the player takes doesn't win fast enough, which isn't easy due to the presence of Teacher Bun Bun and the sheer amount of HP on the enemy base. However, it can be cheesed using Li'l Tank Cat.

Another one of the hardest stages is Godiego Pass, which contains three Dober P.Ds. Unlike Pigpen Taboo, however, the stage gives the player a source of money throughout the battle.

  • 2★ difficulty for this sub-chapter multiplies enemy strength magnifications by 140%.
  • 3★ difficulty for this sub-chapter multiplies enemy strength magnifications by 160%.
  • 4★ difficulty for this sub-chapter multiplies enemy strength magnifications by 140% and only allows Special Cats and Rare Cats to be deployed.

New Features

This sub-chapter introduces three new enemies:

  • Ginger Snache: A Red enemy with many knockbacks and good movement speed and attack damage. Often appears in large groups.
  • Wall Doge: A defensive enemy with high health, low damage, slow movement speed and very short range. Can be considered an enemy counterpart of Wall Cat.
  • Sunfish Jones: An Angel enemy with massive health, exceptional range and the ability to slow down cats.
  • While not his first appearance in-game, Super Metal Hippoe is introduced to Stories of Legend here. He is a Metal enemy with high health for a Metal enemy, moderate damage, fast movement speed and a guaranteed chance to knockback cats he hits.
