Synopsis

Set in a futuristic-medieval world, where warriors from around the world face off in a Battle Royale style competition, Battle Kitty follows the adventures of an adorable yet feisty kitten named Kitty, using magical bows instead of swords or axes, who along with their best friend Orc, embarks on a quest to become a great champion, by training to become a warrior, defeating all the monsters on Battle Island, and collecting their coveted keys. The duo face many obstacles and naysayers on their path to championhood, only to discover a surprise waiting in store for them at the Ancient Ruins.[4]

Cast

Matt Layzell as Kitty, a yellow cat as The Last Monster who possesses extreme strength and “power bows”, small bows with the elements imbued within them.

Layzell also voice Kitty’s best friend Orc, the youngest son of the Orc King and an expert fashion designer, and ???, a mysterious being introduced at the end of the series.

Gideon Adlon as Zaza Royale, the daughter of former champion Angel Royale. She starts off being Kitty’s enemy but later becomes his friend. Her squire is a robot named Merchin.

Grey DeLisle (credited as Grey Griffin) as Angel Royale, the former champion and the series’s main antagonist. She starts off as a ghostly creature that comes out of numerous statues of herself hidden across the land and pretends to assist Kitty. She manipulates him by proclaiming he is the “chosen one”, a being destined to become the next champion. Later, it is revealed that she died fighting the Last Monster, who was actually Kitty. By throwing a bomb at him, she sent him flying into the Orc Kingdom, giving him amnesia, but the explosion killed her. Driven mad and determined to reassume her rightful place as champion, she eventually transforms into a monster via possession of her daughter Zaza, but is defeated by Kitty.

Robbie Daymond as Iago Fineheart, the most flexible warrior on Battle Island and an archery expert. He eventually becomes Orc’s boyfriend at the end. Additionally, he bleeds Blueberry jam.
