As there are no strong peons to support the Berserkories, you can easily defeat them by stacking anti-Red cats and simply overpowering them (possibly with the help of combos). Just make sure to quickly kill each of them to avoid fighting several Berserkories at once. For this task, strong anti-Red units such as Crazed Fish Cat, Island Cat, Maximun the Fighter or Roe Cat are recommended.
Alternatively, try bringing along the Gross!!! combo (Gross Cat, Crazed Gross Cat, Creepmallow), Apple Cat and Gentleman Bros. If you time it correctly, every enemy in the level will be permanently frozen by a stack of Gentleman Bros. and Apple Cats, allowing you to kill them at your leisure. iCat, Apple's True Form, doesn't even need support from Gentleman Bros.
Another way to cheese the stage is to bring Dread Pirate Catley or an Uber alternative like Raiden along. Just spam him (maybe with some Recharge Speed Up combos) and, with good initial RNG, the Berserkories will be unable to get close enough to attack. Of course, support is needed as the damage output would be quite low otherwise, possibly causing many Berserkories to stack.
When the level begins, lure the first Berserkory to your base. When he arrives, spawn all the cats on the second row. The Catleys should knockback the Berserkory so he doesn't hit your Octopus stack. When the first Berserkory is killed, wait for the cats to reach the next one and then spawn A. Bahamut, and, if you have a lot of cash, (so you would have at least 4000 after spawning it), your uber. Keep spamming and your cats should reach the base eventually.
Strategy 2 (4 Star)
Cat Cannon: Normal or Breakerblast.
Start the battle by upgrading the Worker Cat once, as soon as you have the money to. Then, start spawning Maximum the Fighters (you can wait some time between each Maximum summoned if you wish to save on money).
When the second Berserkory appears, stop all summoning and lure them near the base. Upgrade Worker Cat to level 5. Once the Berserkories are very close, summon Maximum and Musashi. Attempt to sync or near-sync them with the cannom. Stall them for a while with Maximum, but if they both lock onto the base, summon A. Bahamut at the right time, where he won’t get sniped by waves. The first Berserkory should die without hitting A. Bahamut. The third Berserkory should be close to the battle when the second one is killed.
It should be relatively easy to kill the third Berserkory by spamming Maximum. While it is being killed, upgrade your Worker Cat to max. A. Bahamut may die, but that does not matter. Berserkory should be killed and you may summon all you want as you push towards the base. Summoning A. Bahamut here makes it much faster.
- Sunset's Howl is one of the few stages in the game to consist entirely of Red enemies.
- This stage is complementary to Berserkory's description, "where the sunset on his back awoke his dark powers".
