Monster Cats (化け猫, Bake Neko) are monsterous feline being which is able to transform into humans and utilize Magic.[1]


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.


Blair (Anime - Episode 1) - (46)

Blair's soul.

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.[1]


Monster Cats are not only able to transform into a form like that of a human but also practice Magic and also possess multiple souls,[3] presumably nine, tying into the folklore depicting cats as having nine lives.

List of Monster CatsEdit


  • 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]
