CATS is the main villain in the Sega Mega Drive version of the arcade game Zero Wing. He forcibly takes control of several bases throughout space, starting a war that must be stopped by the player character, a spaceship known as ZIG-01.

Apart from the game itself, CATS (and the Mega Drive version of Zero Wing as a whole) gained notoriety among the internet around the late 1990s and early 2000s for the poor quality of the game's English translation, most notably the line "All your base are belong to us" from the game's opening cutscene.

He appears in Make a Good Mega Man Level 2 as the boss of AD 2101, starting the battle with a set of dialogue between him, Mega Man, and Bass that directly references the infamous English translation of his original game.


The fight against CATS is largely based on Pharaoh Man. CATS will randomly use one of the following attacks:

  • Jump straight forward twice, shooting a shadowy wave of energy and a sharp boomerang in the middle of his first jump.
  • Jump on top of Mega Man.
  • Charge up a wave of energy, then release it straight forward.

Other Notes Using Sakugarne heals CATS by two points.


  • The battle against CATS triggers the effects of the Flashman85 cheat. This is because two of the sound effects present in the cheat (the one for using Flash Stopper and the one for using Slash Claw) were present in the MaGMML2 devkit as easter eggs, and the code that the battle uses to trigger the sound effects is the same as the code used to trigger the Flashman85 cheat through Cheat Mode.
