The Hellcat is a one-off enemy in Shadow Hearts. When the children from Zhaoyang village sneak into Granny Mayor‘s house to eat Yuri and Alice, they turn into their true forms. These are large bipedal felines with blue tribal markings and sharp claws. You may also encounter them in the Pit Fights in Shanghai.
Vengeance of kittens killed by humans. Its body is full of maggots. It fakes the cries of babies and devours the mothers that come to check on them.
Yuri will be more vulnerable to Exorcist Arrow so Alice should keep him topped up with Cure.
If you have levelled Zhuzhen up considerably, he will have learned Nourishing Potion, however it’s rarely going to be necessary so he can stay on the offensive. Ogre Flamedance can be used as a secondary way to deal damage.
Concentrate your attacks on one Hellcat at a time rather than trying to kill them both at once.
The name implies it is a cat from hell. Considering their cannibalistic tendencies, this is probably where the name derives from.
