Takeda Shingen is an Uber Rare Cat that can be unlocked by playing the Rare Cat Capsule during the Sengoku Wargods Vajiras gacha event. His True Form was added in the Version 6.0 Update, which increases his health, attack power and attack range.

Strategy/Usage

Shingen is basically a Black/Alien nuker. While he only attacks these traits, he absolutely eviscerates them when he does encounter them. He is quite situational, so don't bother using him on stages without Black/Alien, but in saying that, if there is an Black/Alien stage, he will destroy it like nothing

Due to his long attack animation, he will often miss his targets, meaning that he is more effective when there are not many units to support him or against units with few knockbacks.

While his slow attacks leave him to be undesirable, he can almost always be useful in all Into the Future stages and later Stories of Legend stages.

True Form

Immortal Shingen has better range and damage, which, combined, improve his effectiveness by a lot. Thanks to these, Shingen is now able to hit more enemies, plus he has more time to hit them before he is reached. In addition, his improved health can make him work better against Tackey and the like.

Talents

Talents allow Immortal Shingen to target Angels, which pretty much increases his usability by 50%, if not more due to stages that combine enemies. Unlock this talent if you need an Angel nuker, because Shingen can go from standing there doing nothing to devastating them with powerful attacks for just 100 NP. Attack Buff and the Talent Orb slot can be used to further improve Shingen's damage, which, considering how strong this unit is, can never be a bad idea. Also note that an Attack Orb would increase Shingen's damage by a larger amount than your usual damage dealer, as he relies directly on his base attack power, rather than a modifier like massive damage.

Cost Down, Barrier Breaker and Health Up are definitely nice, but only invest in them if you see yourself using Shingen a lot, as these are pricey for how rarely they make a difference.

Trivia

  • This cat is a tribute to the God of Military Arts of the same name, Takeda Shingen.
  • Although Immortal Shingen's description states that he is using the Cat Sword, he is actually using axes.
  • The Evolved and True Forms' attack animations last three frames longer than the Normal Form's.
  • This Cat currently deals the third highest base damage per hit in the game (EN version), behind only Lasvoss Reborn/Heracrist (tied for 2nd), and Mad Doctor Klay.
  • The marks on Takeda Shingen's sword in the Japanese version are different than the English version, with the Japanese one having the marks "風林火山” on it (Wind, Forest, Fire, Mountain (A reference to the Takeda Crest)) on all the form's weapons and meaningless marks/signs on the English version.
    • This makes him one of the few cats with regional differences (region-exclusive units such as Catburger not included).
  • Takeda Shingen is the first cat to only attack certain types of enemies.
