Cat Cameraman


Evolves into Commando Cat at level 10.

Evolves into Cameraman Cat at level 30 using Catfruit.


  • High attack power for a Rare Cat.
  • Strong against Floating enemies.
  • Might survive a lethal strike.
  • Moderate health and attack rate.
  • Fairly fast production rate
  • True Form grants Area Attack and greatly improves HP/speed.
  • Very cost-effective.


  • Very slow movement speed.
  • Short-ranged attacks.
  • Single-target outside of True Form.


  • While not too useful before True Form, Cameraman Cat is an extremely efficient DPS unit against Floating enemies. A big enough stack of these will reduce even the mighty Teacher Bun Bun to rubble — let alone his son.
  • However, Cameraman Cat's true utility lies in her other stats. If you look at them, you'll notice that Cameraman Cat's stats are just about 1/2 of Castaway Cat's. This doesn't make Cameraman Cat a bootleg Castaway, however; Cameraman costs about 50% of what Castaway costs, and has a whopping 16 second shorter recharge time! Because of this, Cameraman can be used to support Castaway Cat in his usual role — not freezing Aliens, that is, but being an effective mid-ranged damage dealer, especially against Floating enemies.
  • Despite the first two forms being very poor (due to their low range, glass health, and single target attack), the True Form becomes much better. It is exceptionally spammable and deals high damage, especially to Floating enemies.
  • "Research UP" Combos like Biohazard and Bony Bone can be used to make Cameraman Cat even more spammable than it already is, though keep in mind that it will drain money quickly.
  • With proper meatshielding, its True Form is extremely useful in Headshaker (Insane).
    • If the player has also Bahamut Cat's TF, Cameraman Cat can help a lot in Lots O' Lion (Deadly) and Tiny Horns (Deadly), too.


English Version

  • Normal: A mermaid who came onshore to meet a prince. Survives on land by taking long breaths. Strong vs floating, might survive a lethal strike.
  • Evolved: Hearing her prince got kidnapped by terrorists, Mer-Cat joined the Green Berets to save him. Strong vs floating, might survive a lethal strike.
  • True: Putting her life on the line to tell the truth of the Great Cat War. Journalistic integrity causes huge area dmg vs Floating, might survive once.

  • Normal Form: A mermaid cat that attacks by doing a flip into the air. Has a mermaid hairdo as well.
  • Evolved Form: A soldier cat that attacks by flipping into the air.
  • True Form: A journalist cat that attacks by flipping into the air and taking a picture.


  • The attack animation of True Form lasts 1f longer than Normal and Evolved one because Cameraman Cat flashes her camera before doing the rest of its attack animation.
  • Cameraman Cat has Mer-Cat in its name.
  • Mer-Cat is a lot like Kai in that both of them resists floating, survives once, and has a good health-to-cost ratio. Mer-Cat is however much more spammable.
  • Is somewhat a reference to The Little Mermaid, as she becomes humanoid in the evolved form.
