The Cat Ninja is a foe and a summon in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. They can be found stealthily lounging about the Mystic Woods and surrounding areas, typically with their other cat brethren. It is a member of the Kitten Army.


(insert visual description)

It can have any combinations of the swords and the shurikens shown.


(insert overview)

Unlike most other Cats, its secondary item does not count as a shield and doesn't protect from any damage. Instead, the secondary item is used up when it flings a Shuriken. That said, its evasion is quite high and will give it a good chance to avoid most attacks. They have lower stats but tend to use stronger attacks than most of the Cats, and can inflict Poison or Stagger with many of their attacks as well as the uncommon Shroud status.

They tend to attack the weakest player.

Battle logic

The following describes general logic of the enemy and attack patterns, with chances of each attack to be used. Conditions are listed from highest to lowest priority unless specified otherwise.

  • If catch score >55 and all players are Lovable → Surrender;
  • If Syphoned and it lost its Shuriken → Backstab;
  • If Berserked → Backstab;
  • If it lost its Shuriken → Backstab (3/6), Smoke Puff (1/6), Bamboo (1/6), Log (1/6);
  • If it used Buff on the last turn and still has the Shuriken → Shuriken;
  • Otherwise → Buff (1/2), Shuriken (1/2).

Additionally, the Cat Ninja has a 75% chance to target the most hurt player with its attacks.
