XP Stages (Japan: ゲリラ経験値にゃ Guerrilla Experience stages) is a set of special stages that can appear on a fixed schedule or during the weekend. These stages use a lot of energy, but can give you a lot of XP as a bonus, rarely as a treasure.

Tip: Use the Cat Jobs power up to fully exploit these stages.

Note: the amount of XP earned will NOT decrease as you play the stages many times over, it will stay the same (applies to both XP and Weekend Stages).

Paris Cat (at Level 20+) can easily knock back the Shadow Boxer K's before they can attack.

This stage is easily beaten by sending out 3 Paris Cats to kill the Gorys. Then begin saving for Bahamut Cat, after the Paris cats reach 1/2 way across the battlefield, send out Bahamut cat, when they begin attacking the base, start spamming Wall Cat and Macho Cat. Continue spamming meatshields and the occasional Paris to win.

Strategy 2 (before unlocking Bahamut): Another strategy is to utilize the Cat Combo Midsummer Sun (increased massive damage) and Weightlifter or Ring Girl Cats to kill off the Shadow Boxer K's. The lineup I used was Solar Cat and Cooldown Cat in the first 2 boxes to activate the Midsummer Sun Cat Combo, 2 Meatshields (Samba and Wall), Onmyoji/Magica Cat, Giraffe Cat, Weightlifter Cat, Titan Cat, Valkyrie, and Takeda Shingen. If you don't have an Uber, then just replace it with another anti-black cat. Titan and Giraffe are optional, but are helpful if the Kang Roo's get close.

When the battle starts, send out the meatshields, Onmyoji, and Cooldown Cat, but keep in mind that you don't want to overwelm the enemy or else you won't be ready when the Shadow Boxer K comes out, so try save up money. When you have enough money, buy some Weightlifter Cats. The Gory's will give you a lot of money, so buy Valk or save up for Takeda Shingen. You will probably kill the Shadow Boxer K before killing the other Kang Roo's so if the Kang Roo's get to close, then use Titan and Weightlifter (and Giraffe if needed.) Once they are killed, then yay! You won.

Don't get intimidated because it is an Expert stage. Your objective is to keep those black enemies at line, so I do recommend you to take 2 specific cats along;

The strategy is quite simple:

Set up: Crazed Macho Cat (In case you don't have it, bring Samba Cat), Mohawk Cat, Wall Cat/Eraser Cat, Paris Cat, Jamiera Cat, Dragon Cat/King Dragon Cat, Cat Eastwood, Cooldown Cat, Valkyrie Cat, and your beloved Bahamut Cat.

A few weak enemies will appear at the beginning tempting you to send something, but you should just spam 2 meat shields; Samba Cat/Crazed, Macho Cat and your Wall Cat/Eraser Cat, they will hang until the Doge Dark comes out, so that's when you send out one Paris Cat along with a Wall Cat/Eraser Cat. Remember to keep spamming your meatshields so your Paris Cat will stay alive for a while. When you have enough money send out Bahamut along with as many meat shields as you can! When they reach the castle you will have enough money to send out all other cats. Start first with Jamiera Cat then all others, focusing on Cat Eastwood and Cooldown Cat. Keep spamming all those units until you have destroyed all those Shadow Boxer K's, and then send out your Valkyrie Cat. Keep spamming units until the Director Kurosawah is dead and that XP is yours.

Some Important Notes:

  • Some Doge Darks and Gory Blacks come out within 20 seconds. It is recommended to use Hip Hop Cat to do massive damage to them.
  • Here's an important fact if you're hesitant to try this stage: If your cheaper cats (Paris Cat and below) can finish the fourth stage with small or no help from Bahamut, you can most likely beat this stage too with the same cats (including heavy attackers) as long as there are enough Cooldown Cats and Cat Eastwoods when Director Kurosawah spawns. So don't worry too much! This stage isn't much different from the previous one besides the Director Kurosawah.

Stage 6


Stage 6:

Sweet XP (Insane)

(Japanese Version: 経験値は蜜の味 超激ムズ)

Energy 500
Enemy's Castle Health 280 000 HP
Enemies (include strength magnification) Those Guys (400%)
Kang Roo (100%)
Celeboodle (100%)
Doge Dark (Black) (400%)
Gory Black (Black) (100%)
Shadow Boxer K (Black) (100%)
Enemy Boss Squire Rel (100%)
Bun Bun Black (100%)
Treasure XP +100 000 (5%)
XP Earned 88 000 ~ 347 600 XP
Stage Width 4000
Max number of Enemies 10


Strategy 1:

Use the same setup as before, but replace Jamiera Cat with an Anti-floating Cat, like Shaman or Bishop Cat, as Jamiera Cat will just die to Bun Bun. At the start there will be a few enemies, but just save up for upgrading your Worker Cat. Then, when the enemies come closer, start sending out your meatshields and anti-black cats. When Bun Bun Black comes, use all your Cats, and hope for the best.

Strategy 2

Cat Line-up: Mohawk Cat, Eraser Cat, Paris Cat, Weightlifter Cat, King Dragon Cat, Jamiera Cat, Bahamut Cat, Valkyrie Cat/Ururun Wolf, an Anti-Floating cat, any decent long-range Uber Rare Cats (preferably strong against Black or Floating, but other ones works just fine). Evolved forms for Normal Cats should be fine (at least Level 20), but True Forms are recommended. Lion Cat could be used to replace Anti-Floating Cats if necessary, but recommended to be +15 or higher. If you don't have anything for the last space, use Crazed Macho, Crazed Wall, or Crazed Lion to fill it up.

EoC/ItF Treasures: Recommend all (if not, then most) treasures from Empire of Cats, and some from Into the Future (preferably the Anti-Floating or anti-black treasures).

Start level by stalling Doge Dark, Gory Black, and Those Guys with only Eraser Cat and Ring-Girl Cat.

NOTE: DO NOT attack the Enemy Base. The first boss wave will spawn around 210000 HP. If the Cats reach the base, stop spawning, let Gory Black and Doge Dark kill them. Otherwise the first boss wave would likely overwhelm you and lose the game.

You should have a maximum of 6 Eraser Cats and 1 or 2 Ring-Girl Cats on the battlefield. Depending on the level, the Ring Girl Cat should kill the Doge Dark and Gory Black in one/two hits.

After you reach MAX. Level and Wallet, spam all your Cats except for Valkyrie Cat (save her for later), since she will rush to the front and most likely be killed within the first few moments of the first boss wave. The spamming should be able to let you defeat the first boss wave (a spam of Shadow Boxer K and Celeboodle). A single Squire Rel and Kang Roo will spawn to support the boss wave, and Kang Roo will spawn in a slow interval for the rest of the battle. You may choose to fire the Cat Cannon or spawn Valkyrie Cat after your Cats beginn attacking the enemies, or save them for the second boss. Money earned from defeating enemies should keep you constantly at Max. money.

By the time you killed most/all of the first wave, your Cats should be attacking the enemy base again, and the second boss (Bun Bun Black) will spawn at 120000 HP. It should not be a problem if you keep spamming your cats, as Bun Bun Black would be constantly knocked back and pinned down by your Bahamut Cat, Anti-Floating/Anti-Black Cats, Valkyrie/Ururun Wolf, and your Uber Rare Cat (they should be protected most of the time by your meat shields, and should be still alive after the Bun Bun Black dies). After the Bun Bun Black dies, just attack the base and you are done. It is possible for your Cats (especially Lion Cat) to glitch through Bun Bun Black as he is being knocked back, which allows you to hit the Enemy Base, but it only last for a short moment as more enemies spawn.

Those Guys, Doge Dark, and Gory Black (also Kang Roo after first boss wave) will spawn throughout the entire battle for support, but they are not a threat if you keep spamming. Depending on your Cat Study level, you could earn over 620,000 XP in total after you win (340,000 XP x1.5 if you use Cat Jobs) and obtain the treasure (100,000 XP).

Also, Kasa Jizo can make very quick work of this stage. For those who are energy glitching and spamming for XP, King/Crazed Dragon/Ururun/Crazed Sexy Legs may knock back Bun Bun Black, and Awakened Bahamut can glitch through and destroy the base.
