This article is about the creature.
You may be looking for the form of lightsaber combat, Form VII: Juyo / Vaapad.

The vaapad, also known as the juyo, was a creature native to the Galactic Republic energy-world of Sarapin and its moons.

Vaapads were brown ball-shaped, multi-tentacled creatures with two yellow eyes and multiple tentacles used to kill prey. A vaapad attacked by striking its prey with its tentacles so quickly that they were nothing but a blur to the naked eye. There was no way to tell how many tentacles it had unless it was dead. The number of tentacles varied; most had at least seven, while the largest specimen ever examined had twenty-three.

Mace Windu developed a lightsaber style based upon the vaapad. The style used quick and deadly strikes to overcome the enemy, much like how the vaapad would use its tentacles on prey. Windu created this style with aid from Sora Bulq, although Windu and his former apprentice, Depa Billaba, were considered to be the form's only masters.
