|~ Cat's Head|
It is manned by several Penguins and is fairly heavily armed. It's weakpoint is the head and does not have many hitpoints, but it's weapons can also be damaged, and it's crew can be killed.
The Cat itself does not attack directly, it will quite happily float around the screen for a minute, and doesn't even make any aggressive movements. The crew seem to have other ideas, and will fire it's cannons towards the player, or with reckless abandon should the player not be in reach. The back of the boat also acts as a Penguin generator.
There is no true way to destroy this creature, even if the head takes fatal damage, the ship will continue to float around the screen, and the guns will continue to shoot. The Cat Battleship will eventually leave by it's own accord, and the crew will drop into the ocean, regardless of whether you "defeat" it or not.
- Some ports of the game actually require you to destroy this boss, since system limitations did not allow the level to continue scrolling. These ports usually increase the health of the boss significantly.
- In Gokujō Parodius!, the Cat Battleship appears shipwrecked in Stage 2.
