Thief Cat is a Rare Cat that can be unlocked by playing the Rare Cat Capsule. True form increases range, attack power and gives him Area Attack.

Cat

Evolves into Phantom Thief Cat at level 10.

Evolves into Goemon Cat at level 30 by using Catfruit.

Pros:

  • More money earned from an enemy defeated.
  • Fast attack rate and animation.
  • Moderate cooldown and cheap to produce.
  • Decent stamina.
  • True form has area attack.

Cons:

  • Very weak attack power except in True Form.
  • Single target attack in normal and evolved form.
  • Quite low range even in True Form.

Strategy/Usage

  • Only use this unit if you are facing a level with fairly weak enemies so you can make use of its ability, as Thief cannot hold its ground for very long against most enemies.
  • His best use is in the early game, as for an early game unit he does have somewhat above average stat and can easily take out peons for extra cash, and a couple of them stacked behind a tank cat can even take care of Hippoes or Sir Seals.
  • IMPORTANT: Do not use Thief Cat or Phantom Thief cat in Catclaw Dojo. In The Catclaw dojo, you get no money for defeating enemies, making this cat useless.

---TF Analysis ---

Phantom/Thief cat isn't really that good. Weak attack, pitiful range, and single target make it a foolish attempt at a cash+ cat. This all changes when Goemon is considered. Goemon has improved attack power and improved range. The thing that makes Goemon even better is the fact that it now gains Area Attack. With it, a swarm of Goemons can sweep through peons, getting much more money than normal.

Overall, while Goemon is a useful cat, it is tricky to find a situation where it can be properly used.
