Cat, formerly known as FormalCat, is an ARMS player from the United States who plays Min Min. They were formerly considered to be one of the top Min Min players in North America and is a former member of the eSports team "Fellows in ARMS".

Cat discovered ARMS upon its initial announcement on January 12th, 2017 during a Nintendo Switch Presentation. After seeing the game, they instantly knew that they would have a desire to play ARMS at a competitive level. Near the ARMS' release, Cat took part in the Fellows in ARMS podcast series, organized by Defur and hosted by Akiosjo, alongside M30W. The podcast later evolved to become a team of the same name with all aforementioned community members being recruited for the team. M30W and Cat were also invited to join Team Chroma on August 9th of that year, to which they both accepted. However, both M30W and Cat resigned from Team Chroma on September 2nd 2017. Cat showcased their Min Min prowess by taking 1st in numerous large online events in ARMS' first Summer including WiFi Never Sleeps 9 and Up in ARMS: Saturday Night Showdown #2. Their interactions with PineappleFreak around this time introduced Pineapple to the Fellows in ARMS team of which he soon joined as well. In December of 2017, Cat placed 4th at Smash Out Hunger 2017, one of the first offline ARMS majors in North America.

In early 2018, Cat continued to display their proficiency in ARMS by landing in the top placings of numerous Mega League Monday events; the community's most prominent online event series at the time. On June 1st, Smash'N'Splash 4 began, which resulted in being one of the most prolific of all offline ARMS majors as well as the leaving point for the Fellows in ARMS. Each member of the team managed to attend the event, with Cat not being an exception. At the end of the event, they placed 17th in Customs and 13th in Defaults, which was the team's second highest placement in Defaults with Pineapple's 9th place finish being their highest. Later that year, on October 15th, Cat was featured in a documentary about the team titled The Fellows in ARMS. On December 15th, they once again attended Smash Out, this time placing 7th.

Cat's tournament endeavors throughout 2019 were few and far between compared to previous years although they did still occasionally interact within community circles around this time. They did begin to enter more events in early to mid-2020 although their results were not as prominent as they were in years prior. Despite this, Cat has continued to remain one of the ARMS community's most well respected members as their friendly attitude and presence has always persisted.

Playstyle[edit | edit source]

In the early days of ARMS, Cat was known for being a formidable user of Min Min's Default ARMS. Since then, they have still kept Ramram within their loadout in most circumstances. Cat also utilizes a variety of light ARMS and glove ARMS.
