Map of the level

Catbat is the boss of the Sapphire Passage in the Game Boy Advance game Wario Land 4. It is a large, ghost-like cat with a bat on its head. This monster has the features and wings of a bat, and is able to fly in the air. Catbat's battle area has a pool of water in the floor, with a Mechanical Fish swimming back and forth through the water. In order to defeat the Catbat, Wario must ride on the waves Catbat creates when it crashes into the pool and ram into its Bat Head, all the while Wario must avoid the Toge that Catbat spits out. If Wario touches a purple Toge, he will become Puffy Wario and float upwards, wasting valuable time. After enough hits, the bat head disappears and the Toge become red. This time, they will damage Wario (instead of transforming him). When on the newly undulating wave, Wario must jump off and ground pound Catbat's head. After enough hits, Catbat is defeated and Wario is rewarded with the creature's Bracelets.
