Community Wiki: Waap

Waap (present tense waaping) is a commonly-used term in the Exion Discord Server that refers to playing Super Smash Bros. with fellow community members with items turned on. Switch believes it is the optimal way of playing the video game; this is because items give him a fighting chance against strong opponents like Cloud. The origin of the word “waap” is unknown; the term was coined by Cloud but many speculate it to be random nonsense that happened to stick.


Waaps are generally held with three stocks and a medium-length timer. Any stage can be used; however, 75m, The Great Cave Offensive, New Pork City, and Palutena’s Temple are discouraged due to their large size and potential for additional lag. All items are switched on and set to high, which leads to interesting combos, KOs, and match results. A waap without items is referred to as a fote.
