The Critical Hit, Ctitical Attack is a special ability possessed by certain Cats and Enemies. If a Cat has this ability, they have a random chance (Cheerleader Cat and Sunny Neneko are special cases) to unleash a powerful attack, dealing extra damage to enemies.
This powerful attack deals double the damage of a regular attack. For example, when a cat whose regular attack normally does 400 damage successfully performs a critical hit, the cat does 800 damage, and ignores Metal ability . This makes it particularly effective against Metal Enemies, since they take only 1 damage from attacks. Critical Hits allow you to deal massive damage to these enemies.
When a cat lands a critical hit, a star effect appears and a sound effect is played.
