The owl and the cat went across the universe, trying to save it. They did, and arrived at a picnic.

In game

The cat's job is to cross the finish line without losing all of its lives, which can be hard to do if there are many enemies present in the game. Throughout most of the levels, food will be available for the cat to pick up in the game. When the cat does pick up food, it will activate its megaburp, which the cat can use to destroy destructible blocks or enemies.

Game(s) Nitrome Must Die

The cat appears as the sixth boss of Nitrome Must Die, appearing on level sixty. The cat appears gigantic in size, having a belly which takes up its entire body. The cat is stationary for most of the battle, hovering in the same place and seeming as if it is sleeping. The cat relies on the owl for protection in its stationary periods, being entirely defenseless during that time.

Phase one

The cat will be stationary for the entire part of the level. The owl will rotate around the cat in circles, firing bullet clusters. When the cat's health reaches a certain point, the cat will begin to move around, moving horizontally at the top level, firing its megaburp. After doing this a few times, it will move back to its stationary position.

Phase two

Exactly like phase one, only it will perform its megaburp attack when its health drops to a lower point.

Phase three

During this phase, the cat will remain in the middle of the level like in the last two phases, only this time the owl will adjust itself to that it follows the player that last fired upon the cat, moving when the player moves. After the cat's health is depleted, it will explode.

  • The cat in Nitrome Must Die heavily resembles the big cat seen in the opening of Fat Cat.
  • If the cat's sprite from Fat Cat is zoomed in very closely, a skull head can be seen.
  • During development the cat was referred to as "Neko", which means "cat" in Japanese[1].
