Role in Breath of Fire IIEdit
While Jean is imprisoned in the dungeons of SimaFort, he asks Ryu to retrieve the Royal Ring for him so that he can prove his lineage. He says that he gave it to a witch named Nimufu Mani. However, after travelling to her tower, the party learns that she has gone to the WildCat cafe. Wildcat must be defeated in order to reach Nimufu, and becomes a friendly NPC after the battle.

Before fighting Wildcat, the party has a number of prompts where they are asked to either abide by or disobey the of the cafe. Obeying usually results in them removing equipment, thereby making the ensuing battle with Wildcat for difficult. Disoebying will cause them to fight a Bouncer and decreases Wildcat's disposition.
According to the "Tips and Tricks" section of Ben Siron's FAQ, Chopchop can only be obtained before Jean asks you to retrieve the Royal Ring. Then it's a matter of keeping Wildcat's disposition up, as follows:
Each time the player disobeys a rule, Wildcat loses 8 disposition points. After the fight the player has a conversation with Wildcat about forgiveness which further affects his disposition (the specifics of this are also given in Siron's FAQ). Wildcat begins at 120 disposition, and you will receive the spell Chopchop if his disposition ends at 112 or more (the Dragon Tear is yellow or better); otherwise each party member will gain 16 maximum HP. As an example, if the player disobeys 2 rules, and then answers "No" followed by "Yes," then Wildcat will end with 120 disposition.
