Axe Cat is your first proper damage-dealing cat. After that, he starts to become less useful than various other Cats in Stories of Legend, he can still be used as an expensive anti-Red meatshield or deal with slow Red enemies..

  • Fast attack rate.
  • Strong against Red Enemies.
  • Quick cooldown.
  • Generally cheap.
  • High DPS in True Form for cost


  • Low attack damage and health before getting True Form.
  • Single target attacks.
  • Short ranged for dealing damage.
  • High cost for a meatshield.


  • Axe Cat is useful very early in the game because his damage greatly outclasses that of Cat and Tank Cat. It can be used for some offence in the early game. Damage the enemy before they are ready, and victory will come easily.
  • Later on, Axe Cat becomes less useful when long ranged damage dealers like Gross Cat, and especially Lizard Cat, become available.
  • Axe Cat can be used later on as meatshield fodder like Cat or Tank Cat, but his higher costs and lower stamina make him more ineffective unless against red enemies.
  • The misery for Axe Cat only continues when Crazed Axe Cat is unlocked. Manic Dark Cat, which itself isn't particularly useful, outclasses Axe Cat in every way.
  • Dark Cat can be very effective against Bore. However, other Cats typically get the job done against Bore both more effectively and for a lower price.
