Upon starting The Battle Cats (or playing the intro from the Settings), a short cutscene will explain the story behind the game:

Empire of Cats
Stories of Legend
Into the Future
Cats of the Cosmos


Amongst all the global issues,
civil wars, financial crises, terrorism
a brand new threat appears…
The Battle Cats

We found it too hard
to fight back… because…
these Cats… are too cute.

We are powerless to their reign.
We cannot stop their legion.

Come to think of it
Cats have already invaded the internet too..
We have the best
information technology systems
and use them to look at Cats.

By the way,
the developer of these Battle Cats
was interviewed on TV. It went like this…

Why is the new weapon a Cat?

and he answered -

Because I love Cats.

… are you serious?

I just read what I've written.
It's horrible… so horrible.
I've forgotten how bad my writing was.

My biggest mistake was
I don't know who I am writing to…
I remember my days as a kid,
I wanted to be a major leaguer.

Now I want to be a millionaire CEO of
a Social Networking Service.

I mean,
If you have money,
You don't need love, right?

Whatever the answer is…
I want to tell you one thing.

The "Battle Cats" aren't so bad.

That's pretty much it.


After all the battles,

The world was overrun by the Battle Cats.

A government of the Cats,

by the Cats, for the Cats is the new world!

Or that's what I thought…

In the end,

nothing really changed.

Well, if I have to say something,

I see a lot more Cats nowadays.

That's pretty much it.

Oh, by the way,

I had a "Cat" come into my office

for a job interview, he didn't get in.

We might be really busy,

but a Cat…

is just a Cat.

However, I do feel lucky if I see one,

in the office or at school.

Wouldn't you?


Congratulations to The Battle Cats!

Thank you Battle Cats!

Battle Cats Forever!

Stories of Legend

After the Battle Cats invaded the world
they moved to the next step of their plan…

I thought what they wanted was
to blend into our world and
live a cozy and peaceful life…

I was wrong.

The Battle Cats took over
nuclear power plants
all over the world.

They were trying to feed
all the world's power into one place!

Their mission was really…
Time Travel!

A couple of days ago I ran into
The Marketing Manager of the Battle Cats
(He was a Cat) and we had a chat, but
I don't think he knew what
Strictly Confidential

So I knew their plan,
but I was too busy playing games
and going out.
Oh, I also paid a visit to my folks too.
I'm a good kid.
Trust me.
… and so I forgot about their plan.

We need to release the Legendary Cats!
We need free them before they were sealed!
We need to travel in time!
We need some Cat Food!

… I think that was what the Cat was saying.
Though I can barely remember,
because I was pretty drunk too.

Oh right,
I was having some nuts with my beer.

So anyway,
they succeeded in time travel
and the Battle Cats traversed to
another world.

They remembered to shut down
all the nuclear power plants safely
and even left a note saying
Thank you

… I guess
They aren't so bad after all?

Hey, I forgot to add
You know Cat God? Yeah, THAT Cat God.
He is around 20 years old.

He shouldn't exist in the past… Yet.


And so, having freed the Cats
trapped in the lands of Legend
the Cats came back to their own time.

Welcome home, Cats!

Oh, they brought souvenirs! How kind!
...Chocolate macadamia nuts??
Well, we were hoping for a bit more...


With the help of the Legend Cats
the Battle Cats can finally retire
and live in peace forever. what I thought,
but that didn't actually happen.

Someone accidentally sat on
the time machine's button
and now the Cats were sent to
a weird place no one had ever heard of.

(It wasn't me, I promise)

Yesterday, I ran into the Marketing Manager
of The Battle Cats (again). I didn't ask, but
he told me a lot of top secret info (again).

It seems like where they ended up,
the lost Cat Army discovered other Cats
dressed like bosozoku biker gangs or
members of idol groups with number IDs
and other unusual creatures

It was really hard to tell WHEN
the Cats actually were.

They discovered some of the Legends
were actually just descendants of the
real heroes of Legend.

The Cats had also found a dark guild
researching forbidden knowledge.

Naturally, they were too curious and
immediately decided to stay.
There's no helping it, they're only Cats.

I tried to stop him, but he kept talking loudly.
And the next morning, it was all over the news.

Of course, the government immediately
demanded answers, but the Cats
just hid on top of a cupboard until they left.

Anyhow, it seems the Battle Cats are
the undisputed masters of time travel.

Maybe this time they'll discover the
REAL ultimate superweapon?

Go for it, Cats!
You can do it, Cats!
Three cheers for the Battle Cats!

to the Uncanny Legends!


Thank you for Playing!!


It is the future…
1st April, 29XX
On that day, Aliens came to this planet.

But, hey, what's this?
Was it just bad timing?
The people of Earth brushed
the visitors off like weirdos.

Their revenge on the humans who
ignored them took many forms:

Sinking Japan… Psychic activity…
Mind-control implants… Floating cities…
Reality television… Unspeakable probing…

Sure, some guys weren't too happy.
But lets not worry about that.

Oh yeah, by the way:
I've been an alien from space all along.

The changes we made to earth
creatures are the symbol of our rule.
Lately, you see guys on the street
with THAT growing from their head.

Earth has no words to
explain what THAT is.

You'd definitely die of embarassment
if you tried to even describe THAT.

A real gentleman would never dare
mention THAT in public.


That's how awfully shocking THAT is.

Anyhow, I've got 8 of THAT
growing on my head.

We had just about invaded
every country in the world, but then…
some really troublesome guys
appeared without warning.

Their name is… Cat Army.

We heard they'd conquered the past…
and now they came to invade our future.
I mean, they didn't even look tired…

There's just one thing I
want to say to the Cat Army:

♪Aliens aren't so
bad after all ♪

Well, it is true that we sunk Japan…

Well, lets not waste any more time.
On to the greatest showdown:


And so…
the Alien empire fell before
the power of the Cat Army.

A new world has emerged:
of the Cats, by the Cats, for the Cats!
This life will surely become even
more punishing and cruel! Aaagh!

Well, that's what I thought.

In the end, nothing really changed.

Well, if I have to say something.
Cats star in a lot more
TV dramas these days.

That's pretty much it.

Now we have lots of cute
"big sister" characters on TV.
Aliens became less trendy
so we don't get parts anymore.

Hey, do you remember THAT?
Well, pushing and pulling on THAT
is the new comedy boom.

Oh, one more thing.

I just got back from drinking
with the Cats…

They were a little tipsy, but they
seemed very interested in our planet.

I was cornered for over an hour…
They kept asking things like:
"Is there Cat Food over there?"

They were so persistent
I finally just said, "Yeah, sure!"

Suddenly their eyes were
gleaming with childlike joy.

I hear they're building a rocket now.

Do you think…? No, there's no way…

Congratulations to The Battle Cats!

Thank You Battle Cats!

Onward into an endless universe!!!


Thank you for Playing!!


New Years Day, 20XX.
On the way home, I began to wonder...

How many years had it been since
the Great Cat War began?
And yet, it feels like
I never hear from you anymore.
Not even on my birthday.

The cat's meow... out-of-this-world...
most righteous... top-shelf...
king of the hill... the big cheese...

No words can express
the awesomeness that is me.

I guess people are just afraid to get
too close to true perfection?

But wait...
I just thought of something!!

Could it be? Am I asking for too much
from you, my lovely believers?

My bad (lol)

I heard that lately the most popular
holiday destination is outer space.
All the celebs are going.

For some reason everyone is totally
fascinated with Alien fashion.
It's the biggest fad of 20XX.

You didn't hear it from me, but
the radiance of the Alien empire
reaches even my neighborhood.

Well, those space guys still can't
compete with my glory, of course.

It gets pretty exhausting, being
followed around by crowds of
stylish people begging for your attention.
Such is my burden...

The question I get asked most:
"Where are your trousers?"
But telling would spoil the surprise.


Here's some big news.
I just passed by the Cats who headed
out into deep space.

They had some really important
information for all of you.

Those Aliens... they're actually
not such bad guys after all!
They're just normal folks like
you might run into in your hometown

Still, the Cats have to invade somewhere.
And so, the next adventure of
The Battle Cats begins now!!!


And so...
The Cat Empire achieved total
domination of the entire universe.

A splendid galactic federation
by the Cats, for the Cats.
The cosmos achieved total peace,
and unlimited cat food for all.

... that's the official story, but
the reality is a little different.
Everyone's daily life didn't
actually change one bit.

The one weird thing is that all
constellations now look like cats.
Cats, and only cats.

Or maybe its just me?

Actually, I was at a New Years Party
for the Cat Army and Alien Empire.
I only went to be polite, but...

These Cats and Aliens just turned
their backs and ignored me, talking
about time travel, mind control, and
all kinds of obscure technical topics.
At some point, the world went blurry...

I must have had one seltzer too many

because when I came to I was alone.

Actually, I think that was nice of them
not to wake me, because I felt very
well rested for a week after.

Oh yeah, that's right.

I was free one Tuesday, so I went
to the battlefield with the Cat Army
to kill some time.

I haven't had such a good time
since grade school gym class.

What, you believed me?
Of course I'm not serious.

Well, as the Cat God, I can't just
leave those guys to lose, right?

And you... you did great, kid.
I'm going to grant your dearest wishes.
No, not that one, you creep.

You'll see what I mean. Anyhow.

Congratulations to The Battle Cats!

Thank You Battle Cats!

to the realm of legends!


Thank you for Playing!!


Cat Units

Many units have different descriptions, although some reuse old material from Battle Cats. Many new units have been added with the addition of the Cat Capsules and Special Events.

Enemy Units

The new English Version has all enemies from Empire of Cats and Challenge Battle and many new enemies found in other areas. Most of the enemies have a different description to be more kid-friendly, as some of the enemy descriptions in Battle Cats were pretty inappropriate.

Levels and Stages

The new English Version was released with 3 Main Chapters (each chapter contains 48 levels, which take place in 48 locations, from cities, states, countries, and places in the world, and even the Moon), Challenge Mode and Legend Stages (includes time-limited Event Stages and the Stories of Legend sub-chapters). Version 3 added Into the Future chapter(s), the Cat Combo System, a new gacha event and 2 new sub-chapters.

Regional Differences

While the English release of The Battle Cats shares most of its content with the Taiwanese, Korean and Japanese versions, there are nevertheless many differences between the four versions ranging from sprite changes to exclusive units and stages, which are listed in Regional Differences.


The Nintendo 3DS port of the game, The Battle Cats POP! (shortened: BCP!), was released on June 27th, 2016 with a multiplayer mode, similar to Nyanko Daisensou's 3DS version, Tobidasu! Nyanko Daisensou.

On December 9th 2021, the The Battle Cats Unite! was released on Nintendo Switch with several exclusive features. It is an English-localized version of the Japanese Switch port, Futari De! Nyanko Daisensō, released 3 years prior.
