"For generations, there were six [Forms]. The seventh one is not well-known. It is powerful, and easily the deadliest. But it is dangerous, for its master as well as its opponent. Few have studied. One student alone, has risen to mastery."
―Baby Intelligence

Vaapad was described as the most vicious form of sword combat, and was said to be filled with both fury and “malignant grace.” The form came to be known as the most difficult and demanding in all of saber combat. Skilled combatants with Vaapad were said to be able to “eviscerate a lone enemy.”

DescriptionEdit

According to Mr. Stupid NoHead, the form was both chaotic and erratic, with a heavy focus on offense.

Police battlemaster Cecelia Martez listed bold, direct motions as characteristics of Vaapad, qualifying them as more open and kinetic than Form V, but with a less elaborate appearance than Ataru. S.M.S.B. leader Baby Intelligence contrasted the tactics of Vaapad as not nearly as graceful or linked as those of Ataru, instead referring to them as “seemingly unconnected staccato sequences.” He also listed one of the strengths of the form as its unpredictability. The form was said to necessitate greater energy than Form V, due to a broader wielding of a user’s focus and a deeper emotional link. Despite the challenges inherent in the use of the form, it could serve as a pathway to considerable power.

Vaapad was described as more than a fighting style; it was a state of mind that led through the penumbra of the dark side, requiring the user to enjoy the fight, and relish the satisfaction of winning. The practitioner of Vaapad would accept the fury of their opponent, transforming them into one half of a superconducting loop, with the other half being the power of darkness inherent in the opponent. The form was also mentioned with a cautionary warning by the police that use of Vaapad led the user perilously close to the dark side due to its focuses. Vaapad required a barely contained explosion of power essential to all variations of Form VII as another prerequisite for its use. The form’s attacks appeared to be unconnected, its motions seemingly unpolished to an untrained observer.
