Determining whether a given state can be transformed into a target state using free operations is one of the fundamental questions in the study of resource theories. Free operations in resource theories can be enhanced by allowing for a catalyst system that assists the transformation and is returned unchanged, but potentially correlated, with the target state. While this has been an active area of recent research, very little is known about the necessary properties of such catalysts. Here, we prove fundamental limits applicable to a large class of correlated catalytic transformations by showing that a small residual correlation between catalyst and target state implies that the catalyst needs to be highly resourceful. In fact, the resources required diverge in the limit of vanishing residual correlation. In addition, we establish that in imperfect catalysis a small error generally implies a highly resourceful embezzling catalyst. We develop our results in a general resource theory framework and discuss its implications for the resource theory of athermality, the resource theory of coherence and entanglement theory.
