This is the most deadly enemy in the Empire of Cats Chapters. It is first seen in Chapter 3-48, known as the Moon (Chapter 3 level 48) in the English version. Some Stories of Legend levels will also have Teacher Bun Bun and his colored variants. He has a massive 399,996 HP (that's nearly 1/2 of the Moon's base!) and 9,000 damage in Chapter 3 - Moon. Some say he is impossible to defeat, but he can be defeated with the proper strategy, an example being a continuous "meatshield" spam (e.g Basic Cat, Tank Cat, Catburger or Boogie Cat). Also, he's easily countered by numerous Paris Cats and Dragon Cat stacks, with proper meat shield spamming. Spamming Jameria and Archer cat also can kill him. 1 Fishman Cat can kill him as he is a Bun Bun/Shy Boy/Owlbrow/Mooth killer
A fair amount of people fall into the trap of spending cat food in order to defeat Bun Bun when they first encounter him. Although Bun Bun is the hardest boss in EoC, with proper strategy and lineups you can defeat him without spending any cat food.
Before attempting this stage, it is highly advised to have 100% treasures or at the very least, activate them. Save your cat food since you might regret spending it later. Patience and being rational is the key to winning. Additionally, there will be much harder challenges to overcome in future stages.
Strategy 1 for first encounter
Note: All your cats MUST be lvl 20 and you MUST have 100% treasures on Energy Drink, Giant Safe, Relativity Clock, Legendary Cat Sword and Shield for all Chapters of Empire of Cats.
- Lure the Kang Roo near the Cat Base.
- Once the Kang Roo has been taken down, start spamming your Macho and Wall Cats. If you can, also spawn True Valkyrie.
- Once you have enough money, start stacking Dragon Cats.
- You should have 2-3 Valkyries at this point. Do not stop meat shielding and stacking Dragons.
- Once Bun Bun appears, begin to meatshield (stall) in a way where Bun Bun won't advance and hit both of your meatshields in one attack.
- Bun Bun has 10 knockbacks, so count them to see how close he is to dying.
- Try the best you can to not make Bun Bun hit the dragon stack. Also, spawn Valkyrie if she recharges.
- Do this until Bun Bun is dead. Once he is, excellent work, you have now completed Empire of Cats, unlocked Bahamut Cat, unlocked the Catfruit storage, and are able to progress further in the game!
Strategy 2 for first encounter
- Save money, then deploy some Tank Cats.
- Summon a Valkryie Cat and use cats to protect her.
- Upgrade your Worker Cat to max, then get a full wallet.
- If you are close to the enemy base, stop spamming cats.
- Once you have money, summon every strong cat you have.
- When Teacher Bun Bun comes out, deploy every cat you have (you should have at least 3-4 meatshields).
- Call God for knockback if Teacher Bun Bun is close to your ranged attackers.
- You should win if you have good cats; Congratulations!
Strategy 3 for first encounter
NOTE: you must have three or more meatshields and no treasures needed! (LVL. 15+ and also requires a wall cat LVL.25)
Recommended meatshields: Macho Cat, Wall/Eraser Cat, and Samba Cat
- By the time Kang Roo hits your cats, you must have 4 or more wall cats.
- DO NOT SUMMON A VALKYRIE CAT UNTIL YOU HAVE 7+ DRAGON CATS!!!
- By the time Mooth comes out, use 2 of your meatshields.
- Slowly upgrade your wallet to MAX.
- When Bun Bun comes, use all 3 meatshields and have at least 2 Valkyries.
- Your Dragon Cats would knock back Bun Bun insanely quickly
- Make sure that your meatshields are tight, or else they would be ploughed down and killed.
- Do this until Bun Bun dies.
Strategy for late-game encounters
For now, you should have more anti-Floating units in your arsenal that can help you. Strong units like Catman and stacks of heavy hitters like Dragon Cat or Cyborg Cat can deal enough damage to knock him back and prevent him from attacking your long-range units, or units with slow/freeze abilities can greatly help to win against him. Megidora is very helpful against him and his variants, as his knockback ability can prevent him from getting close to your heavy hitters, and his slow ability can keep your line safe. Kai can also tank many hits from him (especially in True Form), and deal heavy damage if she gets close enough to attack him. A few Angry/Ultra Delinquent Cats under heavy meat shielding can help, so long as you keep sending out more due to their ability to freeze Floating.

|Former teacher of teacher bear. He is a dangerous teacher that says that "my physical punishment is love!" and punches you.. He is trying to fit up boys in boy camp to real tough men-like boys.|
Teacher Bun Bun's Red variant. Slightly smaller in aesthetic size. Very high health and attack power slightly less than that of a 400% Teacher Bun Bun. It has half the number of damage knockbacks.
Teacher Bun Bun's Black variant. Bigger in aesthetic size. Very high health with surprisingly low attack power in comparison. Slower movement speed, and easily stalled with cheap meatshields.
A smaller variant of Teacher Bun Bun. Has much lower health, attack power and range, but is faster and appears in swarms. Has half the number of damage knockbacks.
A mechanical version of Teacher Bun Bun that appears in Eldritch Forces. Has behemoth amounts of health and damage, a faster attack rate and an Omni strike reach. Despite having Mecha in his name, he's not considered a Metal enemy.
Mecha-Bun's Relic variant. Attacks even faster, gets knocked back half as many times, has even longer effective range, deals half as much damage, is slower, and 100% curses Cat Units on each attack. Relic Bun-Bun is not a floating enemy. An extremely challenging adversary.
