True Form, Third Form, or Awakened Form for Special Cats, is the third evolution of many cats. True Form Cats are different from the Evolved forms because when a cat enters its True Form stage, there is a change in health, attacking power and possibly abilities.

Currently, only Normal Cats, Special/EX Cats (purchasable cats and some exception), and some Rares, Super Rares and Uber Super Rares (with the 5.0.0 update), which account for 1/3 Units in the game have this additional form.
