Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl Catdog's Movelist
According to the latest Catdog gameplay breakdown video on GameMill Entertainment's Youtube channel, this character has more moves than the average character. A key system in playing Catdog is switching between Cat and Dog taking the lead in the fight. At times, switching up the leads can change some of their moves.

Conjoined Tag Characters
As confirmed in the gameplay video, Catdog is a tag character that can adapt to situations depending on the situation. If Cat is given the lead, his specific attacks are quicker and more precise than Dog. Meanwhile, Dog offers slower but heavy hitting attacks with larger coverage.
To play Catdog efficiently, players must tag at the right times to use their tools according to the situation.
Where Are They Facing?
According to Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl developer representative Thaddeus Crews who narrated the gameplay breakdown, it's normal to not know where Catdog is facing. This character has heads on either side which encourages their player to understand who has the lead in between Cat and Dog to surprise their foe.
Catdog boasts good attacks that cover both their sides if played well. However, this character just requires a lot of awareness to take advantage of his confusing stance in fighting their foes.
