Monster Cats (化け猫, Bake Neko) are monsterous feline being capable of performing Magic.[1]


Blair (Anime - Episode 1) - (46)

Blair's soul.

Monster Cats have both a human form and a cat form as well as feline features.[1] They seem to behave like traditional cats, having an affinity for eating fish. The soul of a Monster Cat has been seen to be very witch-like in appearance, possessing a purple hue in color in the anime.[2] In the manga, however, it is indistinguishable from that of a human soul in color.[1]

Special AbilitiesEdit

Magic (魔法, Mahō): Monster Cats are capable of performing Magic very similarly to Witches.[1]

Transformation (変身, Henshin): Monster Cats are also capable of transforming between a human-like form and their true cat form. It is not known if it is a innate ability or simply done by Magic.[1]

Speech: Unlike normal cats. Monster Cats are capable of speech.[1]

Multiple Souls: Monster Cats possess multiple souls, allowing them to survive death a number of times before being killed permanently.[1] In the anime, the limit is expressed to be nine souls.[3]

  • One of the earliest hints that a cat such as Blair is a monster occurs when Liz Thompson explains to Death the Kid that his fear of asymmetry is analogous to her own fear of monsters, as she imagines, among other monsters, Blair and also the Flying Dutchman.[4]
