THE SLOTH is one of the slowest enemy units in the game. It has a very slow attack rate, but it can inflict 8,000 damage on multiple cat units. This enemy is relatively similar to Bahamut Cat: slow attack rate, slow speed, but very high attack power and range, with the difference that unlike Bahamut, he has high HP.
He can stall your cats for a remarkably long time, making him extremely deadly. THE SLOTH truly becomes a monstrous threat when used as support with extremely powerful enemies, most notably in Attack on W-Cyclone and Pitfall Zone. Do note that while THE SLOTH can easily stall your cats, your cats can also stall it. On stages with little to no support, simply throwing in periodic Crazed Cats can help stall it while you build up cash for your onslaught.
THE SLOTH is usually being defended by peons in the stages that it appears in. As such, a good strategy is to lure it as close to your base as possible, delaying support from other enemies. Island Cat, Crazed Whale Cat, Jamiera Cat and Crazed Mythical Titan Cat can then be used to deal high damage, while usually being able to survive at least one attack. Alternatively, units with higher range than Bahamut Cat's unevolved and evolved forms, such as Li'l Nyandam, will be able to deal damage to THE SLOTH without being hit by its attack. After completing all 3 chapters of Into the Future, Awakened Bahamut can be used to deal massive amounts of damage, provided that THE SLOTH has little support and Awakened Bahamut is sent out immediately after an attack. In levels such as Salty Is Seawater, where THE SLOTH has almost no support, if you are feeling cheesy, you can just spam Ramen Cat, as he can kill THE SLOTH surprisingly easily.
THE SLOTH (emphasis on sloth) is really slow. He can be overwhelmed by a horde of your meatshields and other cats that will protect your strong cats. Also, Metal Cat, stacked over time, may be able to do lots of damage to him over time in stages where he is not protected, as he will have plenty of time to do damage to him. (This is not tested and may take a while.)
The scariest of all animals manages to get off the tree... Unfortunately, moving is too much so he says he wants to go home now.
The ultimate beast, crawling down from the treetops to exterminate the cats.
... That was its plan. However, moving on the ground was too much for it, and it now wants to climb back up to his house in the trees.
