Vorpal Sword


Vorpal sword is a phrase used in Lewis Carroll's poem Jabberwocky, published in Through the Looking Glass in 1871.

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.


The word "vorpal" is one of many nonsensical words in the book and doesn't actually mean anything. However, tabletop and video games have adopted the word into their nomenclature, typically as a prefix in front of a weapon that indicates that it is very sharp or capable of decapitation in a single blow.

Adoption of the vorpal modifier predates video games. Vorpal swords were introduced in pen and paper Dungeons & Dragons in 1976.

Comment From: sector24 --

You are right, I did not mean to imply that only video games adopted the term because obviously it was passed on from D&D to other games.

I only liked Helena in this movie. I expected too much from it but it didn't quite meet any of my extoetapicns and you're right, the 3D elements isn't its best selling point. Oh well towel :3
