After the first time you beat the level, if you are confident in your strategy, bring a Treasure Radar and Cat Jobs. With those two items and Prof. Cat Jobs thrown in, you can get around 3 MILLION XP.

Recommended Ubers

Imagawa Yoshimoto - A good counter to Tackey, if you can manage to push him into Tackey's blindspot. Guaranteed weaken makes Tackey less of a threat.

Seashore Kai / Immortal Keiji / King Gamereon - Capable of stalling the enemies for some time while dealing high damage to them.

Yukimura / Twinstars / Kasa Jizo - Fast, cheap, capable of easily getting into Tackey's blindspot and with short recharge time, they can help a lot for this level. Though be cautious when deploying them, as too much DPS can lead to the Razorbacks dying too fast and getting everyone to Kurosawah's range. Though they're great for rushing the stage and ending it before the 2nd razorback can even leave the base.

Divine Kuu - Capable of both taking and dealing a lot of damage at a reasonable range, though be wary of her long attack animation and massive attack rate.

Oda Nobunaga: Can perma-freeze the Razorbacks and tank alot of hits from the tackey due to his one KB.

The vast majority of Anti-Blacks help out in here, excluding the ones with knock back ability, as those will bring everything to Kurosawah's range and kill your whole stack.

Strategy 1 (ft. Hermit Cat)

Hermit Cat is a very useful unit in this stage. Not only does he make killing Kurosawah a LOT faster, he helps control the black hordes, preventing them from ruining your bomber stack, and doesn't deal too much damage to the Razorback, letting wave DPS stack up consistently.

Lineup:: Prof. Cat Jobs, Awakened Bahamut Cat, Hermit Cat (30+), Manic Macho Legs, Pizza Cat, Manic Mohawk Cat, Manic Eraser Cat, Eraser Cat, Bombercat (Must be True Form), Cyborg Cat / Drone Cat / Cameraman Cat / Nymph Cat / Manic Flying Cat. Professor Cat Jobs is present for his combo and not required.

Battle: For the startoff, use meatshields, Bomber, Manic Macho Legs, and Hermit to deal with the enemies. Stack Bomber, making sure to desynch at least the first 3. Make sure to not spawn the other units. Eventually, you will push. When you get about halfway, spawn Awakened Bahamut to activate the boss wave without your bombers syncing on base hit. Beware of pushing too much: if you spawn too many of the listed spammable attackers, you may push past Razorback and into Kurosawah's range, which is certain death for your stack and run.

Once the Razorback and the rest of the enemies come out, keep spamming meatshields, Bomber, Manic Macho Legs, and Hermit. If Catjobs is in True Form, spawn him too. Once the second Razorback comes out, slow down your Bomber spam as to not hit the deploy limit. Eventually, Kurosawah will die, and at that point, just spam everything; with Kurosawah gone, the base is free for the taking.



  • Prior to the Version 6.6 Update, this stage's map was called “Deadly XP!”.
  • This was the first Merciless stage introduced into Battle Cats.
  • Once you beat the stage once, it disappears completely, and you need to wait for it to appear again to beat it once more.
    • It was one of the first stages to act this way upon completion.
    • Due to this, acquisition limits for the stage's drop rewards are completely meaningless.
