List of all the special abilities in Battle Cats, the effects can be increased by getting treasures in Into the Future chapters and the activation of certain Cat Combos.

Attack Types

Single Attack

Single Attack Single Target JP Only one unit within range will be hit by this Unit's attacks.

Area Attack

Area Attack Area Attack JP All units within the unit's set attack field will take damage from its strikes.

Units with this ability will damage all enemies in its range, which is more useful than "Long Distance" ability.

Long Distance

Long Distance Long Distance JP Units at long distance will receive damage but attacks may miss units at closer range.

Cats and Enemies with this ability are able to attack at uber long distance and even hit enemies outside their attack range (since the majority of these units have area attacks), but cannot harm any unit that is close enough to them, rendering them virtually unable to damage anyone close unless said unit is knocked back into their range again.

Initial Abilities

Strong Against

Strong Against
Indicated enemy types will take extra damage with damage received from that type also reduced.

One of the more commonly-seen ability within the Cat units. Units with this ability will deal 1.5x and take 1/2 damage from said enemy, which could be whitefloating, red, black, angel or alien types.

This ability is affected by "Strong" Effects.

Massive Damage

Massive Damage
Indicated enemy types will take much more damage from unit attacks.

Cat Units with this ability will inflict triple damage to certain type of enemies.

This ability is affected by "Massive Damage" Effects.

Resistant

Resistant
Damage received from indicated enemy types will be reduced significantly.

Cat Units with this ability take only 1/4 of an Enemy's total damage, making them extremely durable against the type of enemy listed. Usually they have enormous HP pools.

This ability is affected by "Resistant" Effects.

Knockback

Knockback
Unit has a set chance to push indicated enemy types back towards their base.

Some Cats and Enemies have this ability; the Cat Cannon also has this effect by default, but on a smaller scale (the knockback isn't as long as the unit ability). Cat units with this ability can push a specific type or all enemies back regardless of damage dealt, while enemy units with this ability can push back all cat units. This ability usually has a chance to proc (otherwise known as RNG) and the knockback range may vary as well.

This ability is affected by "Knockback" Effects.

Example: Pirate Cat (might knock red enemies)

Slow

Slow
Indicated enemy types will have their speed reduced for a set amount of time.

Some Cats and Enemies have this ability. Any units with this ability can slow the other side's units from advancing the battlefield, and units affected will move at the speed value of 1 temporarily. (AKA 15 range per second) (The speed of the slow is universally the same)

This ability is affected by "Slow" Effects.

Freeze

Freeze
Indicated enemy types will become unable to move for a set amount of time.

Some of Cats and Enemies can have this ability. Any units with this ability can stop the other side's Units from advancing the battlefield, units affected by the effect will be frozen for period of the time and any attack animation will be halted. This ability depends on the success chance and the duration of the effect varies between units.

This ability is affected by "Freeze" Effects.

example: Flower Cat (might freeze black enemies)

Extra Money

Extra Money
Money rewards from defeating indicated enemy types will be increased.

Cat Units with this special ability double the amount of money gained from defeating an enemy.

The cat combo "Get Rich" allows all units to have a smaller scale of this ability.

Base Destroyer

Base Destroyer
If this unit is attacking an enemy Base its attacks will do much more damage.

Specific to certain Enemies; these enemy units inflict much more damage when attacking your base (usually 4x damage). A few cats also have this ability.

Warlock and Pierre is the first Cat Unit to have this ability.

Critical

Critical
Attacks by this unit have a set chance of extra damage that can hurt Metal enemies.

Cats or Enemies with this ability can sometimes do a critical attack. Critical attacks ignore a metal enemy's (or your Metal Cat) ability of taking the "one hit = 1 damage" and inflict two times the damage, regardless of enemy type.

Wave Attack

Wave Attack
Attacks will strike all enemies in range delivering extra damage from the energy wave released.

Cats or Enemies with this ability can sometimes create shockwaves, only when their attack connects with a unit. The number of waves is depending of the unit's ability level while the damage is equal to a normal attack. Shockwaves do not inflict damage to any side's castle.

Units with "Unharmed by waves" ability ignore shockwaves. Units with "Wave Blocker" ignore shockwaves, and prevent them from harming any cats behind the unit.

For example, Crazed Gross Cat has this ability.

Attacks Only
Attacks by this unit will only cause damage to a specific type of enemy target.

Cat Units with this ability will only attack at a specific type of Enemies, the damage output is always high.

This ability is affected by "Strengthen" Effects.

This ability is affected by "Weaken" Effects.

Survive

Survive
After this unit's health falls below zero it may heal itself by a small amount.

Cats or enemies with this ability can sometimes survive a kill hit based on a percentage chance. Instead of dying, they are knocked back with 1 HP left. Cats with this ability are Mer-Cat, Kai, Pogo Cat, and Surfer Cat

Unharmed by Waves

Unharmed by Waves
This unit does not take damage from Wave attacks.

Shockwave damage is completely ignored by this ability. When hit by a shockwave attack, units with this ability will have a blue shield appear beside them, indicating that they have taken no damage from the energy wave.
