Stages Explanation

Each chapter consists of three stages of progressive difficulties. The higher the difficulty of the stage, the enemies will include higher tier of enemies/bosses, spawn faster and have higher stats multiplication. But it will also have higher chance to obtain better tier of catfruit and meeting the secret stage should player able to clear it. The secret stage "Catfruit Jubilee" does not allow player to bring any power-ups and forced player to use the last formation from previous. Facing with very high difficulty above normal catfruit stages, the chance of obtaining at least a seed is guaranteed should player able to pass it. The chance of obtaining a catfruit of any kind from the stages are as follow:

Stage Difficulty Chances
Seed Catfruit Epic Catfruit
Stage 1 Hard 85% 30% 9%
Stage 2 Expert 79% 45% 13%
Stage 3 Insane 68% 60% 22%
Secret not-rated 100% 85% 70%
  • Entering the secret stage does not use any energy either so always give it a try!
  • You can only obtain one drop per stage.
  • Using Treasure Radar will give guaranteed catfruit as result. But if the player is eligible, it is still possible to obtain higher tier of reward(s).

Catfruit Storage and Functions

Upon obtaining one, it will be saved into the Catfruit Storage.

You can access the Catfruit storage by toggling the storage switch. The button is on right top of storage screen and is only available after clearing certain requirement before!!

The catfruit storage has interface and functions pretty much same like cat units storage. To exchange the Catfruit into XP or converting seeds to catfruit, you have to tap on one of the catfruit in the catfruit storage. With 10 of the same type of Catfruit seeds, you can combine them into a same colored Catfruit. Epic Catfruit, however, can only be obtained as a rare drop from the Catfruit stages.

The Catfruit of any kinds can also exchanged into XP with Catfruit Seeds can be exchanged for 5000 XP, Catfruit for 50000 XP and Epic Catfruit for 500000 XP.

Evolving Units Using Catfruit

The main usage of Catfruit is to unlock unit's certain evolution form if any available which requires catfruit. Each unit requires different amount from multiple type of catfruits along with upgrade XP to evolve. Check the unit page in this Wikia to see the requirement for said unit.

Different units require different amounts and types of Catfruit. One way to predict in advance is to find out what type of enemy that Cat is 'good' against. For example, take Artist Cat → Ramen Cat. That Cat evolutionary line is good against Angels—it resists their attacks. Artist needs the most amount of YELLOW Catfruit to evolve. Yellow Catfruit, if you remember, is obtained by defeating ANGELS.

Catfruittutor en


  • The Catfruit is often called "Actinidia Fruit" in English prior official naming since the Japanese translation and its shape resembles so.
  • There are actually 14 kinds of Catfruits; 3 of the types are not used in-game. When revealed in game, the unused types only show as white circle with kanji "仮" written over which means "temporary" in BCJP or as black boxes in other versions. When exchanged to XP, they give 500000 XP each as same as Epic Catfruit does.
  • The Catfruit Storage can hold a maximum of 129 catfruit items. Attempting to play a catfruit stage will result in the player getting a message saying that the player must exchange catfruit for XP/grow catruit seeds.
