Strategies/Usage

  • Surfer Cat is extremely good at controlling close-ranged Alien enemies. Protect him well to ensure that the Aliens stay frozen in their tracks while your Paris Cats, Macho Leg Cats, and Chill Cats wipe out the frozen enemies.
  • It is possible to stack multiple Surfer Cats over a long period of time to effectively keep some Alien enemies stunlocked. This is possible against some powerful Alien bosses such as Corrupted Valkyrie and Cosmic Cyclone making the fight against them much easier.
  • This cat is extremely useful in the Stories of Legend. He is good at clearing the way, especially against Doge Dark or any other close-ranged enemy (small/support type). It is a must-have in your cat army that can be useful in most stages.
  • Castaway Cat works well as a mid-ranged Area Attacker, along with Princess Juliet Cat, Avalokitesvara Cat, and Cameraman Cat. Out of these, Castaway is the best for general use, as it sports very high health, good range, and cheap cost, as well as a useful ability.
  • Almost essential in Cats of the Cosmos and in Into the Future

True Form Analysis

  • Surfer's True Form, Seafarer, is incredible. It packs health comparable to Sushi Cat, as well as a 10% improved Freeze chance and 100% KO resistance. This alone makes it a notable improvement on Surfer Cat. With these, Seafarer can be stacked much more easily and effectively, staying well behind meatshields. Overall, Seafarer gets a drastic upgrade in usefulness, going from a prime anti-Alien niche cat to a stellar anti-Alien staple and premier mid-ranged attack Cat.

  • The Evolved Form or True Form might be referencing Santiago at The Old Man And The Sea.
  • Castaway Cat could be a reference to the movie "Cast Away".
