The line consists of Cattail (猫尾草; pinyin: māo wěi cǎo), Dogtail (狗尾草; pinyin: gǒu wěi cǎo), and Foxtail (狐尾草; pinyin: hú wěi cǎo). They all specialize in generating wrath and attack by firing spikes from their tails.
The first tier, Cattail, is based on the plant from previous games with the same name and appearance.Setaria viridis a member of the Setaria genus of invasive grass plants, many of which are commonly named dogtail grass due to their fuzzy appearance.

Its method of attack involving numerous thin spikes is based on the diaspore that is also called the Foxtail, a seed dispersal unit which uses easily removable spikes to stick to animal fur.
