Cattus The Devourer.png

The Cattus was a giant and powerful monster in Battle Royale that roamed around the ocean surrounding the map during most of Season 9. It was a giant, one-eyed sea creature with huge arms and feet that carried Polar Peak's castle around on it's spikey back until the Mecha destroyed it. It was considered the main antagonist of Season 9.

The Cattus was defeated during The Final Showdown Event by the Mecha, stabbing it’s head with the sword in Neo Tilted.

History[edit | edit source]

It seems as if the monster was trapped inside of Polar Peak's iceberg for many years, before being woken up by a volcanic strike from the Volcano during Season 8's Unvaulting Event.

During the first few weeks of Season 9, Polar Peak's Bottom began to crack and rumble very often; almost as if something was trying to escape. Just days later, the monster's giant eye was spotted in Polar Peak that stared at any nearby players and made odd noises.

After the 9.20 Update, the Cattus escaped to the sea, bringing Polar Peak's castle with it and leaving a few footprints behind. Shortly after, the monster was spotted swimming in the sea, though only the Polar Peak Castle on it's back was seen. It eventually began to attack a few locations on the map (Snobby Shores, Pleasant Park and Loot Lake). The beast was also seen swimming in the ocean fast and more frequently.

The Cattus first, and currently only, public appearance was during The Final Showdown Event that happened on July 20th of 2019. It had many more powers then anyone thought, and began to cause havoc on the island. It carried most of its attention towards the vault, as if drawn to the power source used by Mecha. Fortunately, the Cattus was stopped and killed by Mecha and stood as a Unnamed POI until the end of Season 10.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Though being quite big, bulky and having a small tail, the Cattus is seen to be capable of moving and swimming at quite high speeds, and being capable of jumping very high.

The Cattus is also able to fire giant green lasers from its mouth with intense destructive capabilities.

Additionally, it is also incredibly strong - being able to destroy or crush several buildings with one stomp or swipe and can survive several blows from even other strong entities, such as Mecha's Missile Barrage shown in the The Final Showdown Event.

Origin Story[edit | edit source]

The Cattus' origin dates back to the Ice Age of Fortnite. The monster was once known as the Cattus Chameleon, a lizard that lived on a island seperate from the main island.

His his origin starts off when the Land Bridge was still a thing. The chameleon crossed the Land Bridge and arrived at what we now call the North Pole.

When it arrived, the ice froze over the chameleon, freezing it in the ice.

However, he wouldn't stay frozen forever. During The Butterfly Event of Season 6, the CUBE exploded, sending out a massive shockwave, and a tremendous of Kev' radiation. Unlike other explosions, the radiation came first. The radiation was sent around the world, mutating a bunch of entitys. However the least amount of radiation, arrived at the North Pole, affecting the cattus. Soon after the slow mutation, the shockwave came, and it broke a piece of the North pole, and was heading towards the island. This would later be known as The Iceberg.

During the points of Season 7, and mostly Season 8; the monster was mutating bit by bit until in update v8.50, the monster completed his mutation.

During The Unvaulting Event, the chameleon, now known as Cattus, would be awakened when a giant magma rock hurled at Polar Peak. The impact woke the monster up from his slumber, and the rest is history.
