The Cat Soldier (also known as Kitten and Kitten Soldier) is a foe that was introduced in Epic Battle Fantasy 2, where it was encountered at the very beginning of the game. It appears mostly around forested areas such as Vegetable Forest and Lankyroot Jungle. However, it can also be found at the very top of the Temple of Godcat. It is arguably one of the series' most iconic foes.
Cat Soldiers have a variety of appearances, but they always appear as small, limbless cats. They wield a variety of melee weapons, ranging from swords and spears to wooden planks and mugs of beer.
Cat Soldiers are extremely weak enemies, having few attacks, no resistances, and several weaknesses to common elements and status effects. They can usually survive one attack, thanks to their damage-reducing shields, but they otherwise lack any truly dangerous attributes on their own.
In general, Cat Soldiers are only threatening in large groups, when their multi-hit attacks can deal a lot of damage if they all target the same character, or if their levels grossly eclipse the heroes' level (as with the Giant Cat Soldier fought on Battle Mountain). However, caution should be exercised if a Fort is in the battle; not only can they summon more Cat Soldiers at will, but they can also buff them with their horns, making their attacks slightly more dangerous.
Attacks and Abilities
- Slashes a single target, dealing physical non-elemental damage.
- Leaps and slashes a single target, dealing physical non-elemental damage.
- Performs a series of slashes on a single target, dealing physical non-elemental damage.
A Cat Soldier usually enters battle with a shield. The shield halves the damage taken from the first attack received, but the Cat Soldier will drop it immediately afterwards.
