True Form, Third Form, or Awakened Form for Special Cats, is the third form of many Cat Units. 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. After beating Into the Future, Talents become available for certain True Form Cats.

Currently, only about 1/3 of the units in the game have this additional form.
