The Cat Warrior is a foe and a summon in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. Cat Warriors are found peppered across the map, primarily in No Man's Land and as helper foes for Laurelin. It is a member of the Kitten Army.


Cat Warriors are simple limbless cats which (somehow) wield a sword and shield, which happen to look much like NoLegs's Cat Toys. They can wield either the Steel Buckler, the Viking Buckler or an unnamed set of equipment that appears to be a wooden version of the Steel Buckler.

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


The Cat Warrior is an improved version of the Cat Soldier from the previous games. They have a fairly simple set of attacks, with their only abilities being a moderately strong non-elemental physical attack and applying Defend to themselves. They are more a nuisance than anything else, but can become surprisingly strong if buffed by their allies.

Like Cat Soldiers, Cat Warriors will have stronger defences until their shield is knocked away. However, unlike Cat Soldiers the Cat Warrior will not lose its shield after a single blow but instead needs to be hit by a strong attack.

From an elemental standpoint, Cat Warriors have a variety of elemental weaknesses and no resistances of any kind, elemental or status. As such, the player can chose practically any technique they want to take out a Cat Warrior.

They favor focusing their attacks on players that have already taken a lot of damage.

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 it lost its shield, it used Buff last turn or it's Berserked → Triple Hit (1/2), Hop and Hit (1/2);
  • Otherwise → Triple Hit (1/3), Hop and Hit (1/3), Buff (1/3).

Additionally, the Cat Warrior has a 50% chance to target the most hurt player with its attacks.


In EBF5, the foe can be captured to be used as a summon, or be randomly summoned by Knight's Helmet (male hat).
