Catastrophe is highly arrogant and is unable to accept failures. Yet, he tends to deny his own mistakes. For himself, he is unable make any mistakes and there are no creatures that would ever be more powerful than him. Catastrophe is well aware of his own powers and enjoys being feared by others. He also enjoys to terrorize others, especially the people of Kamon. He perceive joy to ruin their lives and has no intention in regretting his actions. He doesn’t care for the people of Kamon at all and doesn’t mind them dying. Besides this, he is very manipulative and can act like he cares for “his” people, which of course is a lie. He told them that the fight against the world of light would be for their own good. But in reality, no matter how it ends, if Catastrophe wins or gets defeated, Kamon will disappear with all of its inhabitants. Catastrophe does care for no one else than himself and his greatest desire is power; endless power.
Catastrophe is a full-blooded demon, formerly known as the eternal darkess. He has all powers of darkness and even more, which makes him more powerful than any Pretty Cure. He can take the light and colors and turn the attacked world into a realm of darkness. Adding to that, his power of darkness allows him to create creatures of darkness like Katahowas, Megahowas and some even assume that the Kamonians used to be creatures of darkness. This is why other worlds tend to call then "Shadow People". He has uncountable powers but some, that were shown are were powerful. But besides the magical abilities, he also shows to have combat abilities. And he is very strong.
Catastrophe (カタストロフ?) - The English word "catastrophe" comes from Ancient Greek katastrophḗ, from katastréphō, "I overturn" or from katá, "down, against" and stréphō, "I turn". It is an event causing great and often sudden damage or suffering; a disaster. In Kamon, the name comes from the words Cata or Kata (Kata in Japanese?, the full word is Katasum) meaning "first", Stro (Sutoro in Japanese?, full word is Stroiu) meaning "source" and Phe (Pue in Japanese?, the full word is Pheom) meaning "life".
