A Disaster Neko Parent and its Disaster Neko
|First appearance||Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury (2021)|
|Variant of||Kitten or Neko Parent|
Disaster Neko, along with Disaster Neko Parents, are respective ferocious versions of kittens and Neko Parents that appear as enemies while Fury Bowser is active in the Bowser's Fury campaign of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury. They are black with red eyes and ears, large teeth, spiked tails and fur on their heads and backs, and a dark aura emanating from them. When Fury Bowser begins rampaging on Lake Lapcat, all kittens turn into Disaster Neko and all Neko Parents turn into Disaster Neko Parents. They chase after Mario if he is nearby, damaging him if they make contact. Disaster Neko Parents are larger than Disaster Neko, but otherwise act the same. If Mario is holding a kitten when Fury Bowser wakes up, then he will take damage and drop it; if a kitten is riding Cat Plessie when Fury Bowser wakes up, then it will teleport back to its original location. When Fury Bowser returns to the Fury Sun, all Disaster Neko and Disaster Neko Parents turn back into their original forms.
Hitting Disaster Neko or Disaster Neko Parents with fireballs or boomerangs knocks them a short distance away and stuns them for a moment. Using Cat Mario's swipe attack or Bowser Jr.'s Magic Paintbrush can also stun them. Disaster Neko and Disaster Neko Parents that come into contact with water, lava, Lucky Cat Mario, Invincible Mario, White Tanooki Mario, or White Cat Mario vanish for the duration of Fury Bowser's rampage, and reappear in their original location and state when the rampage ends.
