Cats of the Cosmos (CotC) is the third saga in The Battle Cats. Chapter 1 was added in version 6.5 and can be unlocked by completing Into the Future Chapter 1. It features many of the enemies introduced in Into the Future, as well as many new enemies and Stories of Legend enemies. The main gimmick of this saga is “Starred” Alien enemies, which have a star on their body and are unaffected by the anti-Alien crystals from Into the Future. Starred Aliens have a 1600% strength magnification by default, which can only be reduced by collecting the Treasures in Cats of the Cosmos. There is currently only one available chapter for Cats of the Cosmos. It is recommended to beat Into the Future Chapter 3 before attempting Cats of the Cosmos, as Awakened Bahamut makes almost all of the stages much easier. No treasure festivals are officially scheduled on the weekly event chart yet, and may only appear in events.
Elite “Starred” Aliens
This saga introduces a variant of the Aliens with a yellow star on a part of their bodies. Even though they are categorized as Aliens, the Crystal treasures collected from Into the Future don’t affect them. They initially have 1600% strength magnification. Collecting all Superior anti-Starred Alien Treasures in a CotC chapter will reduce their stats by 500% (1600% – 1100% – 600% – 100%).
Starred Aliens found in CotC – Chapter 1:
- Shibalien Elite (Alien)
- Star Peng (Alien)
- General GreGory (Alien)
- Le’Solar (Alien)
- Project A (Alien)
- Corporal Weyland (Alien)
- Spacefish Jones (Alien/Floating)
This saga expands the series of “elemental” fruits that increase the effect of certain cat’s abilities against a particular type of enemy. Titanium Fruit (Metal), Antimatter Fruit (Zombie) and Enigma Fruit (Alien) are available to collect here as well as Treasure to increase XP earned, Max energy and five sets of Treasure for weakening the Starred Aliens. The last treasure on the list is needed to weaken the final boss of the chapter.
This saga introduces the Warp, Warp Blocker, Barrier and Barrier Breaker abilities. Enemies with the Warp ability have a chance to bring one or a group of Cats they hit back a specific distance after an amount of time; Cats with the Warp Blocker ability will ignore this effect; Enemies with the Barrier ability are able to ignore any damage that is weaker than the limit of their barrier. Each enemy has a barrier with different limit and it is not affected by strength magnification, Massive Damage effects do not work on the barrier as it requires raw damage to break, the player only needs one hit strong enough to break it. After breaking the barrier, the enemy is vulnerable to all attacks; Cats with the Barrier Breaker ability have either a percentage chance or are guaranteed to break barriers, without having to deal higher damage than the Barrier limit.
