The Fett Gotra

After the death of Jabba the Hutt, a power vacuum opened up in his former territories around Tatooine. While Jabba's former majordomo Bib Fortuna stepped in to take control of what he could, it was not until Boba Fett - the former bounty hunter who had been changed by his near-death experience and years spent in the desert with a Tusken Raider tribe - arrived and seized control of Jabba's palace that anything near Jabba's might returned to the planet. Seeking to build a house on loyalty and respect, Fett had his work cut out for him trying to piece together an empire on one of the most untamed planets in the Outer Rim.

Boba Fett (Alpha)
"I'm not quitting now. Not when
I'm so close."

"I see now I've done terrible things. But you started when you murdered my father! I'll never forgive you."

Boba Fett was an unaltered clone of Jango Fett created as part of the bounty hunter's fee for being the template of the clone army. He was raised as Jango's son on Kamino and fled with him to Geonosis after Obi-Wan Kenobi tracked the bounty hunter to the watery world. While he was there, he witnessed the beginning of the Clone Wars and the death of his father at the hands of Jedi Master Mace Windu. Following in his father's footsteps, Boba became a bounty hunter during the war and sought revenge on his father's killer while struggling to maintain a sense of morality under the tutorship of much more ruthless hunters and mercenaries.

  • Alas, Poor Yorick: He picks up his father's helmet in Attack of the Clones after he is decapitated by Mace Windu.
  • Anti-Villain: As a child, he's bad, but it's hard not to sympathize with him considering how much of a good parent Jango Fett turned out to be and that he was killed before the poor kid's eyes. When he actually tries to get revenge on Mace Windu, he states that he doesn't want any harm to befall his "brothers" (the clone troopers) and is only working with Aurra Sing because she's a means to an end. After resolving his issues with Mace Windu, he progressively becomes a straight-up, brutal villain.
  • Arc Villain: Shares the role with Aurra Sing in the second season finale of The Clone Wars. She's the bigger threat, but it's Boba's quest for revenge that sets the bounty hunters against Windu.
  • Avenging the Villain: The goal he initially has in The Clone Wars is to avenge his father, Jango Fett, by killing Mace Windu. He appears to have gotten over this after his assassination attempt fails in "Lethal Trackdown", but Mace ends up getting killed by Palpatine in Revenge of the Sith.
  • Bald of Evil: He acquired a buzzcut while in prison during the Clone Wars.
  • Big "NO!": Says this when Aurra Sing abandons him.
  • Bound and Gagged: After his partnership with Asajj Ventress falls apart in "Bounty", Ventress puts Boba in this state before putting him in a crate and delivering him to Otua Blank in the place of Pluma Sodi.
  • Bullying a Dragon: In "Bounty", he starts shouting at Ventress, a Force-sensitive intergalactic assassin. Though he may not have known her reputation, it was plainly obvious that she had lightsabers she was proficient in using and was a superior combatant, having easily bested an opponent he struggled against.
  • Character Development: Over the course of The Clone Wars, he realizes that the process of getting revenge leads him to do terrible things that even he is uncomfortable with and he decides to stop hunting Mace Windu even though he refuses to forgive him for killing his father. He does go on to do more morally questionable things after that, but not for revenge.
  • Child Prodigy:
    • He is able to pilot Slave 1 at the tender age of ten and eleven as well as make his way in the criminal underworld while in his early teens. Notably, he out shoots the real clone cadets by a long shot when training on the Endurance, despite not having the same combat genetic modifications as them.
    • His father had already been training him in the ways of bounty hunting before his death, as aptly demonstrated when Boba is able to swiftly and fatally turn the tables on his would-be hostage takers without Jango lifting a finger.
  • Clones Are People, Too:
    • While other clones are considered expendable, he was raised naturally as a son and developed his own personality. He did show he cared for his clone brothers (especially the young cadets he infiltrates the Endurance with) and whenever he was told to kill them, he outright refused.
    • When he sabotages the Endurance's reactor, he has to take out a clone trooper who discovers him, albeit via a blaster set to stun. Despite this, Boba still leaves some harsh words for him:
      CT-1477: What are you doing?! We're brothers! Don't shoot!
      Boba: You're not my brother. [fires]
  • Coming of Age Story: His appearances in the installments that are set in the Prequel Trilogy's era of the Canon (Attack of the Clones and The Clone Wars) serve as this in order to explain how he became an extremely effective bounty hunter.
  • Cool Helmet: In The Clone Wars, he wears a helmet of non-Mandalorian origin after getting out of prison. He eventually acquires Mandalorian armor before the end of the war.
  • Damsel out of Distress: Before he was ten, he was able to conceal a blaster pistol on his body and shoot a bounty hunter holding him hostage. As he throws said diminutive hunter to the ground by the head, he tells her:
    "Lesson for you. Search your prisoners."
  • Enfant Terrible: He was already a trained Bounty Hunter at a young age. His appearance in Age of Republic: Jango Fett sees him coldly murder two trecharous bounty hunters and only spare the third to spread his budding reputation.
  • Even Evil Has Standards:
    • During his vendetta against Mace Windu, he didn't want anyone else to die.
    • He considers the other clones of Jango as something akin to family and outright refuses to attack them.
    • Curiously, though, he was perfectly willing to let a girl be sold into slavery as some warlord's bride while Ventress couldn't go through with it. To be fair, he didn't seem to realize what the girl's brother wanted to do with her; he thought he was still "protecting" her from him.
  • Freudian Excuse: Witnessing his father's beheading did bad things to Boba's ideas of who the heroes and villains are.
  • Greek Letter Ranks: In The Bad Batch, it's revealed that Boba was originally called Alpha by the Kaminoans before Jango named him Boba, being the first Jango clone ever created and with an unmodified genome to boot. This is also thematically ties him with Omega, a female Jango clone who also has an unmodified genome.
  • Guns Akimbo: He wields these during the Clone Wars. Like father, like son, it seems.
  • Heartbroken Badass: When Mace killed Jango, Boba completely lost it, setting out on a quest for vengeance.
  • Kids Are Cruel: He was able to murder fellow bounty hunters attempting to double-cross him and his father without a second thought.
  • If You're So Evil, Eat This Kitten!: In "Lethal Trackdown", Aurra Sing tries to make him shoot a clone trooper (who is essentially his brother). He refuses, so she remorselessly murders the clone trooper in front of him.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: When Boba Fett and Asajj Ventress are hired by the dictator Otua Blak to deliver Pluma Sodi to his stronghold to become his bride, Sodi tries to convince Ventress to set her free. Although Ventress is already sympathetic to Pluma's plight, she initially refuses to help her and still planned to go through delivering her to Otua Blak in order to collect the bounty for her delivery and split it equally with Boba. Boba, however, informs her that he plans to hoard most of the payment for himself, which provokes Ventress into freeing Pluma in giving Fett a Humiliation Conga.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: In Dark Disciple, during Ventress' and Boba Fett's team of bounty hunters attempt to rescue Vos, Fett and his team managed to somehow defeat and subdue Dooku, although he escapes before they can kill him.
  • Older Hero vs. Younger Villain: He's the Younger Villain to the Older Heroes Mace, Anakin, Ahsoka, and Plo Koon in his own self-titled arc in The Clone Wars.
  • Parental Abandonment: Aside from Jango getting killed, Aurra Sing (not a parent, but a parental figure) fled the coop when rescuing Boba would have meant getting herself caught.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Even as a small boy, Boba's a dangerous and cunning assassin.
  • Please, Don't Leave Me: Says this word-for-word when Aurra Sing leaves him behind when he gets captured by Plo Koon.
  • Revenge Myopia: In his eyes, Mace Windu murdered his father. In reality, both were combatants on opposite sides of a war, Jango attacked first and Mace wound up on top. Justified by the canon timeline placing Boba's age during Attack of The Clones at about ten years old and the trauma likely making it hard for Boba to consider it anything else.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Blowing up a starship to get to one man certainly qualifies, even if it was Aurra who told him to do it.
  • Robot Buddy: His personal assassin droid C-21 Highsinger was described by the creators as being to him what Chewbacca is to Han Solo.
  • Saved by Canon: Because of his appearance in the Original Trilogy, Boba is not allowed to die in any of his appearances in the prequel-related media.
  • Start of Darkness: Watching Jango get cut down by Mace Windu was this for Boba, which led him to develop a vendetta and initiate an assassination plot on Mace during the Clone Wars.
  • Teens Are Monsters: He was a bounty hunter by his early teens.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: While Boba wasn't exactly a nice guy to begin with, he gradually abandons any moral restraints as a bounty hunter. During his assassination attempt on Windu, Boba didn't want anyone else to die and refuses to hurt the clones. After his revenge plot failed, Boba became more ruthless like when he let a girl be sold into slavery so long as he gets paid.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: An unfinished story arc of The Clone Wars implies he would wise up about himself and display a more professional attitude, outright telling Cad Bane how he refuses to let him hold a town hostage for any longer before squaring off against him.
  • Tragic Keepsake: Zig-Zagged with Jango's helmet; he takes it as one, but later uses it in order to lure Windu into a trap and blows it up. However, with the revelation of the adult Boba's armor being inherited from Jango, it's likely that Boba reclaimed the remains of the helmet from Vanqor to reforge into his own much later.
  • Train Job: In "Bounty", he leads a team of Bounty Hunters to protecting cargo on a subterranean tram from a group of Kage Warriors.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior:
    • In Age of Republic: Jango Fett; tagging along on one of his father's missions as part of his training, he appears like a normal kid whose proud of his dad and comes off to other bounty hunters on the mission as The Load; only when two of the hunters take Boba hostage to claim the bounty for themselves does his true colors show as he easily and coldly offs the pair and nearly kills the third despite him not being in on their scheme, letting him live only so he can tell the tale.
    • Justified somewhat in The Clone Wars, as witnessing his father's death in Attack of the Clones gave a young Boba a harder and gloomier outlook on life.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Boba in The Clone Wars is a lot more concerned about innocents and collateral damage than you would expect from the cold bounty hunter with little characterization who we saw in the original trilogy.
  • You Killed My Father: He goes after Mace for revenge. This ends about as badly as you'd expect, given that Mace is only slightly less powerful than Yoda, and Boba's not even in his teens yet. After his assassination plot fails, Boba moves on and focuses on his career as a bounty hunter.
  • Young and in Charge: Boba Fett is seen several times leading (or trying to lead) groups of bounty hunters that are far older and more experienced than he is. Lampshaded by Asajj Ventress in "Bounty".
    Ventress: Boss? He is your boss?
    Boba: You got a problem with that?!
  • Young Gun: Even before the Clone Wars, while training in missions alongside his father, Boba was already making a name for himself as a bounty hunter despite not even being a teenager.

    Tropes from the Original Trilogy Era 

Boba Fett
"He's no good to me dead."

"I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy the whispers of surprise when I walked onto the scene. That's right, boys. Fett's here."

With his customized Mandalorian armor, deadly weaponry, and silent demeanor, Boba Fett was one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy. Now lacking even the minimal morality he had shown as a child, Fett was known for his ruthless and brutal nature, taking jobs from some of the most despicable people in the galaxy, including Jabba the Hutt and Darth Vader.

  • Adaptational Wimp: His Legends counterpart was the most dangerous bounty hunter in the galaxy and could go toe-to-toe with Darth Vader. Until The Mandalorian, what was shown of Fett in canon is that he's a highly competent and dangerous bounty hunter but not nearly as invincible as his Legends version, as a pre-Force training Luke Skywalker managed to escape him and a blinded Han Solo caused his seeming demise by accident.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Legends Boba Fett, at least before the introduction of Jango, and his backstory was a unsavory person, to say the least. Contrary to modern depictions, older Legends material depicted Boba as a disturbed murderer, who preferred to bring his victims in dead, and enjoyed collecting sick "trophies" from his victims, such as the Wookiee braid.
  • Advertised Extra: In The Empire Strikes Back. He was featured pretty heavily in marketing for the film, and his action figure was easily the most popular of the pre-release toys. In the film itself, however, Boba has only four lines, under two minutes of screen time, yet his overall effect on the plot is significant enough.
  • Ascended Extra: Boba Fett was a minor bad guy in the Original Trilogy, but his popularity led to him getting an origin story in Attack of the Clones while getting prominent roles in The Clone Wars and even a handful of appearances in the canonical comics. It still pales in comparison to his treatment in Legends, however, but The Mandalorian started fixing this in spectacular fashion, culminating in him getting his own Disney+ series, The Book of Boba Fett, in 2021.
  • Badass Normal: Name another non-Jedi who can take a confrontational tone with Darth Vader like he did at Cloud City, and live! He's also considered one of the most dangerous bounty hunters in the galaxy.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Notably the only villain to do so in Empire Strikes Back. His objectives were to track down the Millennium Falcon for the Empire and capture Han Solo for Jabba the Hutt. He ends the film with both endeavors successful.
  • Bounty Hunter: By far the most famous one in the Star Wars franchise. Followed in his father's footsteps and became the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy. Although, specifically, "Bounty Killer" is implicitly a better term; he has such a reputation for bringing in his quarry dead that Darth Vader specifically feels the need to single him out and warn him "no disintegrations".
  • Breakout Character: He became so popular that a decent chunk of the Prequel Trilogy's second film was dedicated to his own coming of age story. His father became the sole genetic basis for the clones of the Grand Army of the Republic, one of the single most influential factions in the Star Wars Canon. He was popular enough that he was even digitally added into a restored scene of A New Hope when Lucas released the Special Editions of the original trilogy. He was eventually confirmed as Not Quite Dead in The Mandalorian, and is receiving his own series in The Book of Boba Fett.
  • Brooklyn Rage: He was originally voiced by Brooklyn native Jason Wingreen with the raspy accent to match, fitting for a tough as nails bounty hunter who doesn't take shit from anyone, not even Vader.
  • The Cameo:
    • In the special edition of A New Hope, Boba appears at the end of a conversation between Jabba and Han to foreshadow his role in collecting the bounty Jabba puts on Solo.
    • He makes an appearance at the end of the bounty hunter arc of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, collecting the bounty on Caij and agreeing to part ways peacefully with Cal, but still taking a moment to warn him they’re not friends.
  • Canon Immigrant: His first appearance was in The Star Wars Holiday Special, but his first appearance in a canonical Star Wars installment (production-wise) is in The Empire Strikes Back.
  • Co-Dragons: With Admiral Piett to Vader in The Empire Strikes Back. In Empire, Piett is Vader's official lieutenant in the Imperial fleet, with Fett being a bounty hunter outside the official Imperial chain of command, but still in Vader's employ.
  • Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: The distinctive shape of his helmet's eyepiece was reputedly based on Clint Eastwood's steely glare. Accordingly, Jeremy Bulloch said he played Fett explicitly as Clint Eastwood, mimicking Eastwood's distinctive body language from the Dollars Trilogy.
  • Consummate Professional: As an adult, Boba never once loses his cool or acts unprofessionally.
  • Cool Helmet: Like his father, he uses Mandalorian armor and helmet. Based on Ralph McQuarrie's unused concepts for Stormtroopers.
  • Cool Starship: The Slave I, a ship he got to inherit from his late father after he becomes an independent bounty hunter by his own right.
  • Creepy Souvenir: He isn't above taking scalps or pelts from some of the targets he kills. In fact, those braids he wears on his armor are made from Wookiee pelts.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Subverted. In Return of the Jedi, it looked like he was devoured by the Sarlacc, which is described as an incredibly painful process with the digestion taking a thousand years to finish. However, The Mandalorian reveals he managed to escape the sarlacc’s belly before getting digested, and thus he survived.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Has shades of this in his Age of Rebellion one-shot: finding a dying accomplice of a rogue bounty hunter (who shot said accomplice just for extra water when crossing a large sand dune), Boba gives the man a drink from his own canteen, and without a word reassures him that he will get revenge through Boba's pursuit. It may've been simply for Fett's benefit as the man's last words directs him in his bounty's direction, but it nevertheless allows die with satisfaction.
  • Discard and Draw: As scrapped episodes of the Clone Wars showed, Boba used to be more of a gunslinger back in his younger days and when he was learning from Cad Bane, using his father's two WESTAR-34 blaster pistols and nothing more. After obtaining his armor however, Boba changed for the Walking Armory approach he is known for in the Original Trilogy and his gunslinging skills suffered as a result as his duel with Cad Bane in The Book of Boba Fett shows since his new favorite weapon, the EE-3 Carbine Rifle allowed for far more fires per shot but was less accurate than his pistols.
  • The Dragon: For Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back. He starts as one of several potential bounty hunters Vader brings aboard to hunt for the Millennium Falcon, but he's the one who ultimately tracks it to Bespin, allowing the Empire to capture Han, Leia, and Chewbacca, setting up Vader's trap for Luke. He also plays the role for Jabba the Hutt in the opening act of Return of the Jedi.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: An example that became a non-fatal variant via a Retcon. Boba Fett was ultimately defeated like a punk in Return of the Jedi, being hit in his jetpack by a blinded Han Solo before crashing into Jabba's sail barge and falling into the Sarlacc's mouth. Considering that The Empire Strikes Back hyped him up as one of the most dangerous characters in the setting, this defeat comes across as shockingly abrupt. Fortunately, The Mandalorian establishes that he managed to make it out of the Sarlacc alive.
  • Dropping the Bombshell:
    Darth Vader: Did you bring me anything of value, bounty hunter?
    Boba Fett: Not much. Just his name. Skywalker.
    • At the end of his Age of Rebellion issue, a man trying to fight against raiders with ties to the Empire, whose sister was saved in the act of Boba's latest bounty catch, begs Fett for help, mistakenly thinking that as a bounty hunter he only goes after "bad men, murderers, criminals". Boba responds with his only words in the comic:
      Boba: No... [turns and aims his blaster at the man, a hologram of said man's WANTED hologram over Boba's shoulder] I hunt bounties.
  • Enigmatic Minion: To Vader and Jabba in the films, where his motivations (beyond money) and character remain unexplored, but his appearance makes him stand out.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: His body language and look to Lando in response to Han's screams of agony as he's being tortured indicate that he's as disgusted with the practice as Lando is.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": In The Empire Strikes Back, the characters only refer to Boba Fett as the "Bounty Hunter". His isn't mentioned by name until Return of the Jedi.
  • Evil Counterpart:
    • Possibly one to Han Solo. Like Han, he is from the Galaxy's more criminal fringe and has no personal stake in the war, getting involved only for money. Fett's employer just happens to be on the opposite side, though Han at least becomes genuinely invested in the Rebel cause.
    • He serves as a retroactive counterpart to Mando AKA Din Djarin, another jetpack-wielding Mandolorian bounty hunter. While Din can be as unscrupulous as Boba when it comes to his clients and the targets he’s after, he very much has limits to how far he’s willing to go for payment, whereas Boba's limits aren’t nearly as strict. Tellingly, Din ends up betraying and outright opposing his Imperial clients through a personal war, while Boba's under the direct employ of Darth Vader himself throughout The Empire Strikes Back. Where most of Din's bounty hunting is meant to help fund his tribe back home, Boba is strictly out for himself. And to top it off, Din sincerely believes and practices his Mandalorian culture to a fault despite not being born into it, while Boba seems to have only taken up the appearance and fighting style and stopped there despite being a direct descendant (although he does still have an aversion to leaving debts unpaid). As something else of a parallel to this, Din was orphaned and took up bounty hunting after his parents were killed by the Separatist army, while Boba was orphaned by the Republic (specifically Windu) and took up bounty hunting afterwards.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: When he's voiced by Jason Wingreen. Temuera Morrison instead gives him a voice closer to Jango Fett and the other clones with a slightly more raspy edge to it.
  • The Expy With No Name: invoked He is basically the Man With No Name (who Word of God confirms was one of the main influences behind his character), but in the Star Wars universe, being a stoic Bounty Hunter whose past remains shrouded, at first. The poncho he wears is probably the biggest giveaway.
  • The Faceless: He's never seen without his helmet on in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, so what exactly he looked like underneath was a mystery until his father Jango was introduced in Attack of the Clones (Boba is himself a clone) but even then, outside of Legends, there's no glimpse of the current state of his face during this era.
  • Faux Action Guy: Despite being portrayed as a total badass in the EU, Boba in the films really doesn't do much of anything spectacular or badass. He does a much better job living up to his hype in The Mandalorian, though.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: In The Empire Strikes Back, When Luke arrives on Bespin and tries to get the drop on Boba Fett escorting the frozen Han to Slave-1, you can briefly see Fett briefly turn his head and look down the hall as he walks across the hallway when Luke is spying on him. This explains why he's able to get the drop on Luke and shoot at him when he goes to intercept the procession a few moments later.
  • Groin Attack: Keen-eyed viewers have noticed a particularly sizable chip on the codpiece of his armor, meaning that someone at some point successfully shot him in the groin. Whatever managed to make that kind of dent in his beskar armor meant he definitely felt it.
  • Hired Guns: Which seems to be a common trait for bounty hunters in the Star Wars Canon. Jabba the Hutt seems to be one of Boba's more frequent employers in this capacity.
  • Informed Ability: Boba's status as the best bounty hunter in the galaxy is pretty iffy in the films (either that, or the galaxy's bounty hunters all suck). The Canon outside of the Original Trilogy does a better job of justifying his title. For instance, he's able to pilot the Slave I well in Attack of the Clones, even managing to distract Obi-Wan with it long enough so that his father could escape, and The Clone Wars has shown him as a capable bounty hunter in his youth, but not up to Cad Bane's caliber yet (he was no match for Force users at the time, as Asajj Ventress demonstrated, and Bane was still the top gun in the galaxy at the time). This likely would've been further averted if his storyline in The Clone Wars hadn't been scrapped – one arc of the installment's original seventh season featured Boba coming into his own and apparently defeating Bane in a Wild West-style showdown.
  • In Name Only: While it took decades to be addressed In-Universe, Boba Fett, while being of Mandalorian descent due to his "father" Jango being a Mandalorian, has never been shown in the new canon as ever having visited Mandalore nor had any extended interactions with other Mandalorians. While he has his Beskar armor and certainly fights like a Mandalorian, he doesn't seem to know or at least honor his culture all that much. He ended up an enforcer to Jabba the Hutt and his bounty hunting was solely for his own benefit. In contrast, true Mandalorians are shown to be fiercely loyal to their people and culture. They live together in small tribes and have tight knit clans. While Boba was a Proud Warrior Race Guy to an extent, he only focused on the ways of the warrior whereas a Mandalorian like Din Djarin dedicated his work and the profits of his bounties to his tribe, was close to his fellow Mandalorians, and lived "The Way" of the Mandalorian his whole life. Boba Fett only seems to focus on the aspect of his culture that benefits him (namely the part that lets him kick all kinds of ass) but ignores or at best pays lip service to most of the rest. When he comes across Din Djarin in person he doesn't identify himself as Mandalorian but as a man making his own way, and declares that his only allegiance is to himself. By the looks of it he uses the armor and lets others draw their own conclusions.
  • Iron Butt-Monkey: Boba never acts with anything other than stoicism... but is repeatedly humiliated throughout the Canon. Most prominently with the repeated failures of his plans in The Clone Wars and his infamous "death" in Return of the Jedi.
  • Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique: Boba Fett uses this when interrogating people for the whereabouts of a Rebel pilot that Darth Vader hired him to find. When one man finally identifies the name of Luke Skywalker to Fett, Fett kills him immediately afterwards by shooting him in the chest.
  • Jet Pack: He uses one, as is traditional for Mandalorian warriors.
  • Legacy Character: In three ways.
    • Boba Fett's Impossibly Cool Clothes were confirmed to be Mandalorian battle armor in supplementary material. It's mentioned in passing that the Mandalorians were a Proud Warrior Race that had been eliminated by the Jedi Order: the implication was that Boba Fett either was one of the last Mandalorians or had acquired the armor in some Offscreen Moment of Awesome.
    • The prequels made him more clearly and directly a Legacy Character with the introduction of his parent Jango Fett.
    • Aftermath shows that, after Fett mysteriously abandoned his armor, a sheriff named Cobb Vanth took it and is using it to serve as a lawman on Tatooine until he hands it over to Din Djarin.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: Well, "malevolent" might be pushing it, but he definitely acts as an antagonist in the Original Trilogy and he's certainly masked for all of his screen time there.
  • Mask Power: His Cool Helmet doubles as an equally cool mask.
  • Mythology Gag: Boba Fett's sudden defeat in Return of the Jedi was done when Han Solo accidentally smacked his jet pack while turning around, causing it to go haywire and jet him off the boat and into the Sarlacc's maw. In Chapter 9 of The Mandalorian, Din Djarin smacks Boba's old jet pack that Cobb Vanth was wearing hard enough to launch him to safety against his will when being charged by the krayt dragon. Apparently, Boba's jet pack was always a really sensitive piece of equipment.
  • Nerves of Steel: He almost always keeps his cool. He can even talk back to Darth Vader and live.
  • Never Found the Body: His armor is recovered by a scavenger in Aftermath, but the man himself is not. He shows up alive in the Season 2 premiere of The Mandalorian.
  • Noodle Incident: "No disintegrations." There's no hint at to why Vader told Boba this, but it can't be anything pleasant. According to his POV story, "Added Muscle", the incident involved Rebels armed with ion disruptors on Coruscant. Boba overloaded their weapons and they disintegrated. As such, he was unable to collect on their bounties due to the lack of bodies.
  • No Sympathy: Towards the Jedi. He feels no pity for them suffering The Purge and feels like they got what they deserved, as he explains to Cal Kestis in Jedi: Survivor.
    Boba Fett: I know Jedi. I know what you are capable of. And I do not pity your fate.
  • Not Quite Dead: The Mandalorian reveals that he wasn't digested by the Sarlacc and managed to live as a hermit on Tatooine.
  • Only in It for the Money: He doesn't really care if Han survives the carbon freezing process or not. All Fett cared about was the potential loss of his payday, and was satisfied with Vader's promise of compensation from the Empire if Solo died.
  • Pragmatic Villainy:
    • He doesn’t engage Cal Kestis in battle once the Jedi stands down peacefully, since he’s really only there for Caij. That said, he still orders him to get lost.
    • He has no use for a dead Han Solo since Jabba wants him alive.
    • A trait he retains from his youth is that he minimizes killing anyone outside the pursuit of his bounties, be it innocents or targets he has not yet taken the contract for. Though when he happens to save others through his actions, as in Age of Rebellion, he doesn't acknowledge them no matter what they say.
  • Professional Killer: He comes off as one, although we never actually see him carry out an assassination in any of his film appearances, and his one attempted assassination is a personal matter. Expanded Universe material makes up for it, however.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: The Galactic Civil War doesn't mean a thing to Boba; he just wants to get paid.
  • The Quiet One: He never says much as an older bounty hunter in the films. Even in the new canon EU Fett doesn't talk much unless addressed directly. He's a man of deed and lets his actions speak for him.
  • Reality Is Unrealistic: A case of fiction having plenty of real world analogues to parallel. While many fans might have been let down by how easily Boba Fett was beaten, there are too many instances of dumb luck and chance screwing things up in the most unpredictable ways. In fact, it's even more realistic that Fett lost by random chance because it would be very unlikely he would even lose if he knew the threat was coming. After all, you never know when chance will screw you over.
  • Scarily Competent Tracker: Han's ploy to blend in with jettisoned space junk fooled the Imperials and the other bounty hunters Vader hired. It didn't work on Boba Fett. Then, he not only tracked the Millenium Falcon, he was able to figure out where they were headed and get the Empire there first.
  • Scarred Equipment: His armor has numerous dents, scratches, and battle scars. The seventh season of The Clone Wars would've shown that Boba got the most prominent dent (on the upper-left side of the helmet) in a duel with Cad Bane.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: In Empire Strikes Back, he only has a few minutes of screentime and a handful of lines, but his tracking of the Millennium Falcon to Cloud City sets in motion Han's capture, Luke's climactic duel with Vader, including the infamous Luke, I Am Your Father reveal, and the entire opening act of Return of the Jedi.
  • The Stoic: As an older bounty hunter, Boba never reacts to anything with less than calm, collected action.
  • Took a Level in Badass: He's much more of a badass after the events of Attack of the Clones and The Clone Wars. In Dark Disciple, he and a group of other bounty hunters were able to successfully apprehend Count Dooku when beforehand, he proved no match for Asajj Ventress, suggesting he took that level late in the Clone War. And then, come the time of the Marvel comic, he's brutally efficient to a degree where he has thoroughly earned his reputation as the best bounty hunter in the galaxy.
  • Undignified Death: A blind Han Solo accidentally breaks his jetpack by aimlessly swinging around a vibro-ax and hitting it, causing it to activate and crash Boba into the side of a sail barge which leads to Boba falling into the Sarlacc Pit and get eaten by a Sarlacc. Yeah. It's later subverted in The Mandalorian when it turns out that he didn't die and actually managed to escape the Sarlacc later on.
  • [Verb] This!: After being blinded by Boba Fett's flash-bang grenade and grazed in the shoulder during their confrontation in Kenobi's old hut, Luke repeats Kenobi's lesson about a Jedi feels the Force flowing through him and that he doesn't need to see to fight. Fett responds by saying "Feel This" and opening fire again.
  • Vocal Dissonance: He's established as being in his mid thirties at most during the original trilogy where he has the raspy voice of sixty-year old Jason Wingreen. This is averted when he's voiced by Temuera Morrison who was closer to Boba's age at the time.
  • Walking Armory: His Mandalorian suit of armor is pretty tricked out to say the least; not counting the guns he carries, he has a wrist-mounted flamethrower, a grappling hook, and an anti-tank missile built into his jetpack.
  • Watch Out for That Tree!: After Han Solo activates Fett's jetpack by mistake, Boba Fett slams into Jabba's Sail barge in a manner similar to how George crashes into trees in George of the Jungle.

    Tropes from the New Republic Era 

Daimyo Boba Fett
"I'm a simple man making his way through the galaxy. Like my father before me."
Click here to see him without his helmet.

"Jabba ruled with fear. I intend to rule with respect."

Near-death experiences tend to change a man. For Boba Fett, escaping the horrific Sarlacc pit began a chain of events that saw him left for dead in the desert and enslaved by a tribe of Tuskens, his family armor stolen by scavengers. Though brought to his lowest point, Boba resolved to earn the respect of his captors and learn from their culture, finding a new place for himself free from the burden of his past. After retrieving his lost heirloom with the aid of Din Djarin, Boba set his eyes to take the late Jabba the Hutt's place as kingpin of Tatooine's criminal underworld.

  • Abled in the Adaptation: In Legends, he suffered enough damage from the Sarlacc - which included losing a leg - that he required immediate medical treatment to survive after escaping. In Canon, his legs are intact, he spends years in the Tatooine desert without any top-of-the-line medical treatment, and the worst he's apparently suffered is acid burns on his skin and chronic pain, both of which are cured with a regimen of bacta immersion once he has control of Jabba's throne and can afford a bacta pod.
  • Adaptational Ugliness: An interesting example, he's not really uglier in a technical sense, it's the same actor that was the basis for his face since Jango's introduction, but unlike in Legends, he's bald, appears at least a decade older than his biological age, and is covered in acid burn scars. Though, given he was trapped in the acid-drenched, oxygen-deprived stomach of the Sarlacc for what could have been days, weeks or even months, it's pretty understandable that he looks worse for wear.
  • Adaptational Sympathy: In Legends, following his escape from the Sarlacc, he went right back to business as usual and kept on hunting bounties and clashing frequently with his old enemies. His canon depiction showcases the hardships he faced, from having his armor stolen right off his back, to being initially enslaved by the Tuskens, and facing a Culture Clash against those who would prefer the status quo in running a criminal empire instead of his more respectful approach.
  • Adapted Out:
    • Dengar doesn't fish him out of the Sarlacc and heal him in this continuity; rather he pulled himself out.
    • So far, he seems to have no interest in getting revenge on Han Solo, like in Legends. He reveals that he doesn't hold anything personal against them—only his late employer Jabba the Hutt—not to mention that he tried getting revenge against Mace Windu in his younger days and failed miserably.
  • Affably Evil: As Daimyo, Boba presents himself as a man of the people, refusing to be carried around on a litter like Jabba the Hutt did, and preferring to rule with respect rather than fear, addressing others with the utmost politeness, and opting for diplomacy over violence whenever possible. He also doesn't hold a grudge when Black Krrsantan tries to kill him, even giving the brute some advice and hiring Krrsantan himself later.
  • Ancestral Weapon: How he treats his armor, as it was passed down to him from his father, who himself inherited it from his adoptive father. It was stolen from him by a bunch of Jawas after his escape from the Sarlacc, and retrieving it is such Serious Business for Boba that he's willing to take a small child hostage to get it back.
  • Animal Lover: Boba has repeatedly shown a soft spot for animals. He apologizes to a massiff for hitting it when trying to escape from the Tuskens. When releasing the Bantha he used as a mount he speaks affectionately to her and calls her "old girl". After the Hutt Twins present him with a young rancor as a gift, he goes full Fluffy Tamer and treats it like a big, scaly puppy. He asks his new rancor keeper to teach him how to ride it, mentioning that he's previously had experience riding animals ten times as large.
  • Anti-Hero: By the time of The Mandalorian, Boba has seemingly regained some of the sympathetic and heroic traits he had in his childhood. He initially serves as an antagonist - selfishly threatening Grogu because he wants something Din has, promising to leave the boy if it's handed over - but when Moff Gideon interrupts the confrontation to kidnap Grogu, Boba pledges to help rescue him despite already having what he wants, purely because he feels he hasn't fulfilled his promise. Likewise, his redeeming aspect is that he prefers to rule with respect rather than fear, and opts for diplomacy over violence whenever possible.
  • Anti-Villain: Despite his heroic qualities, he's still a ruthless and selfishly-motivated criminal, with The Book of Boba Fett focusing on his aspirations to become Tatooine's top crime lord. Even so, he proves very Affably Evil in this endeavor and makes it clear that he intends to rule the criminal underworld with fairness and respect, unlike his predecessor Jabba the Hutt.
  • Badass Longcoat: His time on Tatooine saw him sporting a roughspun black duster, which he continues to wear under his armor after retrieving it.
  • Bald Head of Toughness: When the Jawas took off his helmet shortly after his escape from the Sarlacc, he's revealed to be completely bald. Whether this is the result from the stomach acid that corrodes him or a hairstyle he always had since his early years as a bounty hunter, it nevertheless represents the hardships Boba has faced throughout his life as well as his will to survive.
  • Bald of Authority: Is bald and in charge as daimyo. Though Boba wears his helmet to intimidate his potential enemies with his old reputation as a ruthless bounty hunter, he takes it off to the local denizens to show that he's a friendly and benevolent ruler.
  • Batman Gambit: In Chapter 4 of The Book of Boba Fett, Boba Fett arranges a meeting with the crime bosses of Mos Espa to discuss about the encroaching Pyke Syndicate. Boba knows the crime bosses wouldn't agree to fight for him and would try to kill him to seize power for themselves, so he has the dinner table placed over the freshly filled Rancor pit just to remind them of the fate that would await them if they betray him. He then gets them to sign on a neutrality pact for the upcoming war, and confidently tells Fennec that while he doesn't trust them completely, he reasons that their own self-interests would see neutrality to be the safest bet for their businesses and lives. The gambit fails because the Pyke Syndicate are able to bribe the crime families to double-cross Boba in Chapter 7, and the crime families never had faith that Boba could actually win. In response, Boba sends Fennec to make the crime heads pay dearly for their betrayal and stupidity.
  • Benevolent Boss: As a leader, Boba clearly prefers the carrot to the stick; when two of Bib Fortuna's former guards initially refuse to work for him, Boba earns their loyalty by promising them good money and working conditions. Later, when informed by a speeder gang that there is no legitimate work to be had, Boba's response is to hire them to work for him, winning himself even more loyal supporters through simple decency, a far cry from the likes of his own former employers. Even when Black Krrsantan breaks into the palace and nearly kills him, Boba doesn't get angry over the breach in security and even orders that a wounded Gamorrean guard be placed in his personal bacta tank, despite being injured himself.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: "Nice" is a bit of a stretch, but he's a reasonable man willing to hear you out. If you do anything to betray his trust, or stand in the way of his goals, you'll learn why he was once the deadliest bounty hunter in the galaxy.
  • Body Horror: Again, his time in the sarlacc. Best exemplified by how much of his scalp is teal in The Mandalorian. The Book of Boba Fett goes further by showing how his whole body is covered in acid scars, and it is not a pretty sight. Fortunately, by the end of Chapter 4, he's completely healed.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Lacking his beskar armor and most of his equipment upon his return in The Mandalorian (to say nothing of the injuries he suffered in the Sarlacc pit and his years under Tatooine's merciless suns), Boba proves to be a fearsome fighter nonetheless, brutally overpowering several Stormtroopers with a gaffi stick.
  • The Bus Came Back: The Mandalorian marks his return on-screen years after even his appearance as a young boy in The Clone Wars, to say nothing of his adult-self who last appeared in Return Of The Jedi over 40 years ago out-of-universe, and reveals he survived the Sarlacc Pit.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Up until he runs into Din Djarin, he uses a Tusken Raider Gaderffii stick to make short work of Stormtroopers. It soon became his melee weapon, especially after we see his forging of this stick during the scenes of his past on Tatooine when he rode with a Tusken tribe. He would eventually use it to kill Cad Bane.
  • Character Aged with the Actor: Even though The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett take place mere months (for Mando) and years (for Boba), Boba appears as the much older and stouter actor who played Jango 20 years earlier in the prequel trilogies. The best explanation would be his brief stint in the Sarlacc pit and his somewhat longer time with the Tusken of Tatooine.
  • Character Development: Having spent time living with the Tusken Raiders and suffering a Near-Death Experience, Boba comes to the realization that the life of bounty hunting has brought nothing but suffering to the innocent and needless risk to himself and others when the truly Stupid Evil crime bosses they all worked for act in their own interests. He resolves that once he takes over Jabba's criminal empire, he won't make the same mistakes.
  • Consummate Professional: Boba doesn't snark or boast when in combat, like just about everyone else is prone to do at points, and he eliminates any opposition swiftly, brutally, and with minimal effort necessary. This serves to make him look like an old pro in the midst of overzealous if gifted newbies, which is exactly what he is.
  • Covered with Scars: When he reappears in The Mandalorian, Boba's body is covered with scarring from the Sarlacc's stomach acid. He spends much of the first four episodes of The Book of Boba Fett sleeping in a bacta tank to recover from the damage.
  • Culturally Religious: His father was a Mandalorian foundling and he wears Mandalorian armor. However, he doesn't identify as Mandalorian himself.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Utterly destroys a unit of Stormtroopers with nothing but a gaffi stick at his disposal. Then he reacquires his armor, and does more than kill a few Stormtroopers. He destroys two ships worth of them.
  • Declaration of Protection:
    • In order to get his armor back from Din Djarin, he promises no harm will come to Grogu. He backs up that pledge after the Imperial Remnant kidnaps the Child, aiding Din in rescuing him from Moff Gideon's cruiser.
    • He earned Fennec Shand's loyalty first by saving her life after she was left for dead in the Tatooine desert, then promising to watch her back if she signed on to his new crime family as a partner.
      Boba Fett: I can promise you something no client ever has.
      Fennec Shand: What's that?
      Boba Fett: Loyalty. I will cut you in on the success, and pledge my life to protect yours.
    • As Daimyo of Tatooine, he vows to keep the people of Mos Espa safe from other criminals and interlopers, refusing to cut and run when the Pykes launch their gang war against him.
  • Dented Iron: His ordeals on Tatooine have weathered him considerably, and he alleviates it with sleeping in a bacta pod every night once he claims Jabba's domain.
  • Determinator: Even faced with death itself, he won't go down without a fight. He's able to get out of the Sarlacc, in spite of already being wounded, by burning his way through the creature and crawling out of the sand, and he tries rather valiantly to face his Tusken captors in spite of being massively outclassed.
  • Do You Want to Haggle?: After tracking Din to Tython, he opts to bargain with him, promising Grogu's safety in exchange for his armor.
  • The Dreaded: Despite spending years in hiding, his fearsome reputation is fully intact. As soon as the Stormtroopers on Tython see him in his armor, they begin hurrying to get back to their ships. He still takes them out anyway. Later, during the flashback in Chapter 4, he reveals who he is to Fennec Shand after she comes to from him saving her. She's visibly stunned that he's still alive, knowing damn well who he really is. Later, while he and Fennec are stealing back the Slave I, Boba simply identifying himself to one of Bib Fortuna's droids is enough to make said droid shut itself down rather than face him.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: After killing Bib Fortuna, Boba tries to rule as a benevolent warlord, not being the complete scugghole that Jabba was. In response, the citizens and criminals of Tatooine just shrug him off... until he gathers allies and fights off the Pyke Syndicate, becoming a respected and even adored warlord... which makes him deeply uncomfortable.
    Boba: Do they have to bow?
  • Due to the Dead: After finding his Tusken Raider tribe, whom had come to see him as one of their own, completely slaughtered, Boba silently gives their bodies a Viking Funeral, clearly saddened by the loss of his Fire-Forged Friends.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: After managing to defeat the Pykes and defend Mos Espa, he has become beloved and respected by the people as their Daimyo.
  • Enemy Mine: He and Din start off their meeting in a Mexican Standoff, with Boba threatening to kill Grogu if his armor is not returned - only for the two to be attacked by Imperial troops, forcing them to team up. By the end of the episode, they've officially joined forces to rescue Grogu.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: A gender flipped variant. Despite being a ruthless bounty hunter, and it being decades since he last saw him, Boba still loves his father deeply. So much so that when Bo-Katan and Koska Reeves start mud-slinging about Jango Fett, i.e. disrespecting his memory, he loses it.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: When Boba insists on negotiating with Jabba's vassals in person, he explains to Fennec that he disapproves of ruling the criminal underground with fear. Now that he's the one sitting on the throne, Boba wishes to run said underground using respect instead. He also refuses to employ torture and seems opposed to slavery, freeing the slave girls Fortuna inherited from Jabba & releasing Krrsantan instead of selling him to the gladiatorial pits as the Twins suggest. It's later revealed that he doesn't want criminal empires to be ruled by blatant idiots who keep getting people killed unnecessarily—under his and Fennec's rule, he can at least keep things in line and keep people from dying. Well, those under his protection, that is.
  • Exact Words: A rare positive variant. When Boba has Fennec hold Grogu in her sights to demand his armor back from Din, he states that he will "guarantee the safety of the child" if his terms are met. After Moff Gideon's forces interrupt the confrontation to kidnap Grogu, Din hands over the armor and tells Boba their bargain is fulfilled, as he at least tried to save the kid. Boba, however, insists upon helping with the rescue anyway, since by failing to stop the Imperials he has failed to "guarantee the safety of the child" as he promised.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Downplayed with Din Djarin; they initially meet as enemies, with Boba threatening Grogu's life to get his armor back from Din, but, after a battle with the Empire, agrees to help rescue the captive Grogu to fulfill the agreement the two Mandalorians came to, and they work well together for the remainder of the season. Boba left enough of a good impression on Din that, when approached to work for the newly minted Daimyo, Din waives his fee as soon as hears that Boba wants his help.
  • Foil:
    • To Din Djarin; both men are Mandalorian bounty hunters who, despite a cold exterior, have a lot of good qualities. They also both found new purpose in life after being taken in by a group of masked warriors (the Children of the Watch for Din, the Tusken Raiders for Boba). However, Din is very devoted to a particularly strict version of the Mandalorian code of conduct, while Boba barely cares about Mandalorian ideals beyond honoring his father's memory. Boba also has higher ambitions than Din, whose quests generally revolve around small (albeit very difficult) tasks like protecting Grogu or returning the child to the Jedi, contrasting Boba's newfound mission to become a crime lord.
    • To Bo-Katan Kryze; Bo is the scion of a noble Mandalorian house, while Boba is the son of a single former foundling. Boba is a bounty hunter-turned-crime lord, while Bo-Katan aspires to rebuild and rule Mandalore, a goal that Boba finds laughable. Bo-Katan is dismissive of Boba's status as a Mandalorian, while the man himself hardly cares if he's seen as one, having little attachment to the culture unlike Bo-Katan's dedication to their world.
  • Friend to All Living Things: While still ruthless towards his sapient enemies, Boba shows himself to be something of an animal lover in The Book of Boba Fett, treating his bantha with great affection and respect, even freeing it so that it can find a mate, and later, treating his new pet rancor with equal affection,
  • Go-Go Enslavement: Defied.
    • The moment he kills Fortuna, he and Fennec set an unfortunate Twi'lek slave girl free, and have no interest in continuing the Hutt's tradition.
    • When offering the captured Black Krrsantan back to the Hutt Twins in their truce, the Twins decline the offer and tell Boba to sell Krrsantan off to gladiator pits. Boba instead frees Krrsantan, and holds no personal grudge as Krrsantan was just doing a job.
  • Going Native: Despite them initially enslaving him, Boba ends up ingratiating himself with the tribe of Tuskens that found him after he escaped the Sarlacc. He ends up adopting their ways, even forging and wielding his own gaffi stick, and comes to consider the Tuskens his family. Even after his tribe was slaughtered, Boba continues to identify with the Tuskens, regarding Tatooine as his new home and embarking on his criminal enterprise in part to make the planet a better place.
  • Good Cannot Comprehend Evil: While he's not truly good, he is more noble than most of the criminal underworld and his intent on becoming a benevolent crime lord tends to blind him to the reality of scum and villainy he has to deal with, namely that they would make sane and rational decisions. During a dinner meeting, Boba tells the crime families of Mos Espa to remain neutral during his war against the Pykes if they will not join Boba's forces. He reasons that the families would follow their own-self interests and stay true to the deal since siding with the Pykes would put a target on their heads if Boba somehow wins. The crime families prove him wrong, betraying the neutrality pact believing that the Pykes would clearly win the war. Boba admits this was a smart move at the moment, but then sends Fennec to kill all crime family heads (and the mayor) as punishment for their long-term stupidity.
  • Hazy-Feel Turn: After decades slipping further and further into selfish, psychotic villainy, Boba's near-death experience and years in solitude seem to have restored some of the morality he had in his youth. While he is still ruthless in his pursuit of his goals, he has regained a strong sense of honor and loyalty, and is more than willing to help Din Djarin in his quest as thanks for returning his armor. However, once his debt is fulfilled, Boba goes back to Tatooine and kills Bib Fortuna for control over Jabba's Palace, with the implication he intends to start a new criminal empire albeit in a more respectable and beneficial way.
  • He's Back!: Boba's confrontation with Din Djarin in "The Tragedy" marks his return as a major character, and it's fully cemented during the subsequent battle with Gideon's forces, when he reacquires his armor and proceeds to clean house with its suite of built-in armaments.
  • Heritage Disconnect: His father was a Mandalorian but he doesn't identify as one himself. However, he's still close enough for Din to recognize him as the rightful owner to his beskar armor.
  • Honor Before Reason:
    • Chapter 4 reveals he went back into the Sarlacc to look for his armor, in spite of the further injuries he would sustain.
    • In The Book of Boba Fett Chapter 7, after the Pykes and the other criminals on Tatooine outmaneuver and surround him, both Fennec and Din Djarin suggest retreating to his palace and regrouping. But Fett refuses, both because it would be a major loss of face, and would violate his Declaration of Protection to the people of Mos Espa.
  • I Gave My Word:
    • Fett may be Only in It for the Money but when he gives his word, he keeps it. In Chapter 14 of The Mandalorian, he agrees to help Din Djarin protect Grogu in exchange for Djarin returning his armor. When Gideon's troops succeed in capturing the Child despite their efforts, Fett makes it clear he doesn't consider the job done until the child is safely back in his fellow Mandalorian's hands, even though Djarin is willing to consider his part of the bargain fulfilled.
    • When he's shown during his captivity with the Tuskens, he promises to aid them in keeping the Pykes from executing them via train, and he does so in spite of having the chance to escape.
    • He takes his vow to protect the citizens of Mos Espa very seriously, refusing to abandon the town to the Pykes, even temporarily.
  • In-Universe Catharsis: He manages to settle the score with both Bib Fortuna and the Kintan Striders for their role in the slaughter of his Tusken tribe, and kills the Sarlacc that ate him (albeit unintentionally because he thought he already killed it, but it turned out to be Not Quite Dead until Fennec fed it a seismic charge). He later gets his full revenge when he sends Fennec to kill the Pykes—the true beings responsible for killing the Tuskens—as well as the crime bosses who betrayed him.
  • Iron Butt Monkey: His fall into the Sarlacc Pit is revealed to be only the beginning of his misfortune. After crawling his way out of the Sarlacc's belly, he collapses from heat exhaustion, allowing Jawas to steal his armor in the dark of the night. Then he is found, beaten, and captured by the Tusken Raiders, who always thwart his attempts to escape and later forces to dig for water, under the command of a Tusken youngling no less. Despite all the beatings and hardships, Boba never breaks. He eventually gains the respect of the Tusken tribe by strangling a monster with his chains, saving his young overseer's life. He joins his new family, and helps them deal with the Pykes, who repeatedly snipe them and their Banthas as they ferry Spice across the desert, only for all of his new family to be murdered by the Pykes.
  • Karmic Jackpot: He is almost continually hit with this ever since being a new daimyo due to his more respectful and fair approach towards others that has earned him loyalty and commitment as a result. Notably, the mod biker gang saves him from being assassinated by Black Krrsantan, said Wookie willingly takes a job working for him when he lets him go free, and Din Djarin agrees to help him for free as repayment for helping him rescue Grogu.
  • Late-Arrival Spoiler: The Book of Boba Fett advertisements spoil The Mandalorian revealing that he escaped the Sarlacc Pit, and that he and Fennec assume control of Tatooine's criminal empire at the end of Season 2.
  • A Lighter Shade of Black: In The Book of Boba Fett, Boba is still a ruthless underworld figure, who has no problem gunning down Bib Fortuna and the Nikto speed bikers without mercy, and his intention is to usurp the remnants of Jabba's criminal empire for himself. However, he makes it clear he intends to run the operation with respect and loyalty, not backstabbing and fear. He also makes it a point to phase out some of the more unsavory vices of Jabba's empire, like slavery and drug running.
  • Loved by All: By the end of Book of Boba Fett's first season, the citizens of Mos Espa are incredibly grateful for Boba defending their city, finally giving him the respect and tribute he was looking for when he first took control of Jabba's palace.
  • Magnetic Hero: "Hero" might be stretching it a little, but due to his dedication to ruling with respect, keeping his word, and reducing the death count of Tatooine's underworld dealings, he has earned the Undying Loyalty of Fennec Shand, the Gamorrean guards, the mods, Krrsantan, and Din Djarin.
  • Marquee Alter Ego: While Boba never appeared in the Original Trilogy without his helmet, he regularly unveils himself in the Disney+ shows, following Jango Fett's lead rather than that of Din and his tribe of Mandalorians. This trope results in The Mandalorian providing the first canon glimpse of Boba's adult visage. The Book of Boba Fett takes it to another level when his injuries from the Sarlacc Pit start healing, allowing Temuera Morrison to perform with less prosthetic makeup covering his face.
  • Mathematician's Answer: Boba never gives a straight answer as to whether he's a Mandalorian or not. He tells Djarin that his father was a Mandalorian foundling in order to persuade him to give back his armor while sidestepping Djarin's question of being a Mandalorian himself. When Bo-Katan accuses Boba of not being a "real Mandalorian", Boba snidely replies he never said he was. It's clear that Boba has no interest in the Mandalorian people's No True Scotsman feuding and definitions of heredity, and is content to let others think what they want about his status, as long as they leave his father and the choice he made out of it.
  • Missed Him by That Much: Perhaps to his good fortune, he flies off in Slave I while Din's group boards Moff Gideon's cruiser to rescue Grogu. Since he's not there with the others, he misses the person who comes to their aid: Luke Skywalker, who was partially responsible for him being in the Sarlacc in the first place.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Boba cares little for Mandalore's status, people or culture outside of their warrior way and any notion of retaking the planet is quickly blown off.
  • Neighborhood-Friendly Gangsters: Unlike Jabba (or, for that matter, pretty much every other crime boss in the Star Wars universe), as Daimyo, Boba is a man of the people, devoted to safeguarding the people of Mos Espa and refusing to forsake them despite overwhelming odds, even putting their well-being ahead of his own profits.
  • Noble Demon: He's still a ruthless and ambitious criminal, but his goal is to rule Jabba's former empire with respect instead of fear.
  • Nothing Personal: Boba doesn't have much grudge towards mercenary assassins who tried to kill him because he knows they're being paid for it as opposed to having a personal beef with Boba. It's also why he isn't interested in getting revenge on Luke and Han for sending him down the Sarlacc pit, instead putting the blame on the late Jabba for starting the conflict in the first place.
  • Not So Above It All: While Boba is often a stoic individual for the most part, he does get some light-hearted moments once in a while. Notably, his genuine affection for his new pet Rancor, and him excitedly trying to mimic a riding a bantha in front of some Tusken Raiders is quite unexpected to see from one of the galaxy's most feared bounty hunters.
  • One-Man Army: Takes out an entire platoon of stormtroopers on his own, and kills more of them than Din Djarin and Fennec combined.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil:
    • Coldly kills Bib Fortuna to take over Jabba's criminal network. As it's revealed that Fortuna is a greedy scumbag that employed the Kintan Striders, who allegedly killed the Tusken Raiders he was living with, it's more than well deserved.
    • In the season finale for his own show, Boba ends up being the one to do in Cad Bane, a man who had consistently performed horrendous acts during both the Galactic Republic and Empire eras of the franchise in order to get paid.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: It's never pointed to, but Boba isn't the tallest man in a galaxy far far away; he's eye to eye with Bo-Katan, and the mod bikers are his height or biggernote . He is still however Boba Fett.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Boba's motive to become a crime lord is to the show the galaxy that is possible to run a criminal empire without being Stupid Evil. One of the things that separates him from Jabba the Hutt is the fact he's willing to bargain with his adversaries first before he's forced to resort to violence.
  • Protagonist Title: He is, of course, the eponymous Boba Fett of The Book of Boba Fett.
  • Retired Monster: Prior to the events of The Mandalorian's second season, he lived as a hermit on Tatooine. He appears at the end of the first episode watching Din Djarin leave Mos Pelgo with his armor, leading up to a major He's Back! moment later in the season that sets up his solo series. In The Book of Boba Fett, it's revealed he was willing to give up his bounty hunting ways in favor of a life with the Tuskens, but the massacre of his adopted tribe had driven him to back the criminal underworld, albeit to take over as crime lord rather than resuming his old role as a bounty hunter.
  • Samurai: His new title, which both he and Fennec use, is "Daimyo", a title originating from Feudal Japan held by powerful regional clan-rulers. His less than ruthless, and honourable rule of the Hutt Crime Syndicate, alongside him collecting taxes from what he calls his "vassals", certainly fits the name.
  • Scarred Equipment: His armor is in even worse condition than during the reign of the Empire, having gone through the stomach of the Sarlacc and back out with the acid burns and faded paint to prove it. Come Chapter 15, however, he's restored it to its visual prime. By the time of ''The Book of Boba Fett', it's slowly regaining its scarring, but not nearly as bad as it was.
  • Significant Double Casting: Ever since the debut of his genetic template Jango, he and all clones have been portrayed in live-action by Temuera Morrison.
  • The Starscream: The Book of Boba Fett has him take control of the remnants of Jabba's criminal network after killing Bib Fortuna.
  • Stout Strength: Thanks to his character's age-up to match his actor's age, Boba is no longer the slim dude we saw in the original trilogy, but a thicker middle aged man similar to that of his "father" Jango Fett. Despite the extra bulk, Boba still manages to kick a lot of ass and crush a lot of stormtrooper helmets.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Boba's near-death experience in the Sarlacc and subsequent exile on Tatooine have mellowed him out considerably. He's more willing to negotiate to get what he wants and even goes out of his way to help Din rescue Grogu, even after regaining his armor. He's also far more reasonable as a crime boss to those he rules over than Jabba the Hutt ever was.
  • Tragic Keepsake: Boba's armor, which belonged to his father before him, is the only thing he has left of Jango. When he discovers it's in Din Djarin's possession, he tails him from Tatooine to Tython to get it back.
  • Tranquil Fury: If he really wants to kill you, he wouldn't waste words with you. Those who earn his wrath will learn a quick and brutal lesson from either his Mandalorian weaponry or his Firespray-class gunship. Ask the Kintan Striders who slaughtered his tribe. However, when Cad Bane reveals that it was the Pykes that killed his tribe, Boba is incredibly close to raising his weapon in rage, and Fennec is barely able to talk him down.
  • Too Important to Walk: Defied. Though most crime lords in Tatooine play by this, Boba finds this trope to be ridiculous, wanting to walk around on his own two feet to establish how strong and in touch he is with the citizens of Mos Espa.
  • Villain Protagonist: An Anti-Villain at worst, but Boba, whose present-day arc concerns his attempts to build a thriving criminal enterprise, is the lead protagonist of The Book of Boba Fett.
  • Worf Had the Flu: When he's traversing through Tatooine to collect tribute, he and Fennec are attacked by assassins. He's in a weakened state to fight them off, as he's just starting to undergo bacta treatments to heal his injuries from the Sarlacc.
  • Would Hurt a Child:
    • He threatens to have Grogu killed if Din doesn't return his armor. He doesn't go through with it, but there's no indication he was bluffing.
    • Played With when he shoves a young Tusken kid to escape bondage, but the moment he has a clear chance to beat the younglings, he refrains and opts to flee.
  • Younger Than They Look: He's only 41 by the time he shows up in The Mandalorian but he looks much older due to him being portrayed by 59 year old Temuera Morrison. Justified by a combination of being scarred by the sarlacc's stomach acid and the stress-induced early aging that life on Tatooine is said to cause (this being the retroactive justification for Obi-Wan, Uncle Owen, and Aunt Beru all being Younger Than They Look in A New Hope compared to the ages established for them in the Prequel Trilogy). He starts looking better as he gets his injuries treated, which he finishes with by the time of Episode 4 of his own show.

    Fennec Shand 

Master Assassin Fennec Shand
"Your name will be legendary."
Click here to see her without her helmet.

Species: Human

Portrayed by: Ming-Na Wen
Appearances: The Bad Batch | The Mandalorian | The Book of Boba Fett

"I keep an eye on everyone."

An infamously cunning sharpshooter for hire, who serves as Boba's right hand in his criminal empire.
  • Action Girl: She's a highly skilled assassin who can take down multiple opponents with ease.
  • Ambiguously Related: She shares her surname and ethnicity with Crokind Shand, a member of the Kanjiklub.
  • Body Horror: The Mandalorian Chapter 14 reveals that after being gutshot by Toro Calican, she's now walking around with a set of cybernetic intestines with only a flap of fabric protecting it, since Fett didn't have access to the same kind of top-flight facilities that gave Luke Skywalker his much more lifelike hand, instead requesting help from a local Tattoine mod artist.
  • Breakout Character: Her guest spots in The Bad Batch and her lead role on The Book of Boba Fett make her the first original Mandalorian character to appear in other canon Star Wars media. In the first season of Boba Fett, she marks the only character to make speaking appearances in every episode.
  • Cassandra Truth: In their second encounter, Shand tries assuring Omega that she's on her side, a claim Omega is sceptical of. As it turns out, she's right, since Nala Se hired her specifically in order to capture her while keeping her safe, whereas her superiors wanted her captured with plans to dispose of her after they got what they needed.
  • Cold Sniper: She is such a deadly shot with a custom blaster rifle that the only reason the Mandalorian survived his first encounter with her was because of his beskar armor, and even that wouldn't protect him if he got too close. Downplayed from Mandalorian Chapter 14 onward; after reaching an understanding with Din and joining his side, she's marginally friendlier, but still generally reserved and stoic.
  • Culture Clash: As demonstrated in The Book of Boba Fett, Fennec suggests Boba stick to the old ways of running a criminal empire, noting the public is more used to the status quo. Boba prefers to run things more honorably.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: If you can even grace it with enough dignity to call it that: When the massive bruiser Wrecker charges at her, she takes him out with one hit. Cold. No fancy martial arts, no epic battle, he's instantly down for the count and out.
  • Cyborg: After being shot in the torso by Toro Calican, she's now walking around with a set of cybernetic intestines with only a flap of fabric protecting it.
  • Dark Action Girl: She's extremely competent with a rifle and kicks Toro's ass in hand-to-hand combat.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Though her outfit is mostly black, you can at least talk and reason with Fennec. She's an Assassin, so her job isn't exactly pretty. Still she can do the right thing, as Boba and Mando come to realize.
  • David vs. Goliath: As Bane points out when they confront each other, she's at a disadvantage in regards to experience. Despite this, and her initial attempt at a trade failing, she effectively comes out the winner of their fight when Omega gets away, she escapes him, and sabotages his ship to keep him from pursuing.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Sometimes she shares a snide remark with someone else; such as when she reveals herself as alive to the Mandalorian, and admits that even though she can't see his face, she can tell that she startled him pretty badly.
    Fennec: You look like you've just seen a ghost.
  • The Dreaded: Her reputation is such that no professional bounty hunter is willing to collect on her, because anyone dumb enough to try is likely to end up dead. The Mandalorian isn't even willing to hunt her until he's offered the entire bounty as compensation, and only because he's that desperate for cash.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Just as repulsed by the Sarlacc and the prospect of being eaten by it as anyone else has been. She takes special pleasure in killing it.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: With Mando, whom she first met when he took a job trying to bring her in. Because of it, she was shot in the stomach and left for dead, only being saved thanks to Boba's timely intervention. When she reunites with her would-be-captor, she doesn't hold it against him, and when she later hires him to help Boba with the Pykes, she's genuinely happy to see him. He, in turn, agrees to help for free.
  • Hazy-Feel Turn: Her first appearance has her in an antagonistic role as a bounty hunting target for the Mandalorian to chase. Her second appearance has her team up with the Mandalorian against Moff Gideon's Imperial remnant, after which she stays with Boba and helps take over what's left of Jabba's empire.
  • Hired Guns: She has worked for every single criminal syndicate in the galaxy, including the Hutts.
  • Horrifying the Horror: She's one of the best assassins in the galaxy. When she's brought back to life on Tatooine, she's horrified to learn her savior is Boba Fett himself.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: Boba's bid for power ever since he rescued her would not have made nearly as much progress without her participation. Disney+ seemed to acknowledge this in March 2022, weeks after The Book of Boba Fett Season 1 ended; for Women's History Month, the streamer added the show to the Female Leads Collection, and Fennec to the collection's thumbnail and banner.
  • I Owe You My Life: Played straight at first, but then subverted. She agrees to help Boba regain his ship after learning she owes him her life, and after they succeed, he declares her debt is paid and asks where she would like to go so he can give her a ride. However, she decides to stick around, eventually being drawn to Boba’s intention to build a criminal empire based on loyalty and respect as opposed to money and debt.
  • Late-Arrival Spoiler: The Book of Boba Fett advertisements reveal that Fennec Shand doesn't stay dead at the end of Mandalorian Chapter 5.
  • Meaningful Name: A fennec is a type of fox and indeed she is Cunning Like a Fox, both in combat and in being able to convince people to do things just by talking to them. Fennec foxes are also native to deserts, and Mando and Boba happen to encounter her on the desert planet of Tatooine.
  • Mysterious Past: There's no information about where she came from or why she became a bounty hunter, with the earliest info available being that she rose to prominence after the Clone Wars ended.
  • Noble Demon: She's a ruthless professional killer who sold her skills to some very bad people, but she honors her debts. This is best established in The Bad Batch episode #4, her earliest chronological appearance. When her informant fails to keep Omega onsite, Fennec still pays him, deeming it better to keep him on-hand instead of pulling You Have Failed Me.
  • Not Quite Dead: Toro leaves her for dead after shooting her in the gut, but Boba Fett saves her and the two begin working together.
  • Number Two: She become Boba's right-hand woman when he seizes control of Jabba's Palace.
  • Older Than They Look: As a result of being played by Ming-Na Wen (who could pass for being in her 30s despite pushing 56 when she first played Fennec). She was already an adult when the Empire was created, which may indicate that she is at least in her late-fourties to early-fifties by the events of The Mandalorian.
  • Older Sidekick: It's not terribly noticeable because both are seasoned adults in tandem with Ming-Na Wen's youthful appearance, but Boba is actually about a decade younger than her. When Boba was just making a name for himself as a teenager, she was already a professional mercenary. Time and circumstance have simply aged him faster than her.
  • One-Woman Army:
    • When the Imperials attack Din, Boba and Fennec on Tython, she fends them off with ease, killing more than a dozen Stormtroopers even though she started the fight without backup. She's every bit as dangerous as Din even without his large arsenal of weapons — although, like him in "The Sin", she does require aid when surrounded by overwhelming numbers.
    • A downplayed version occurs during Star Wars: The Bad Batch, during the early days of the Empire. During her assignment to retrieve the runaway Omega, she had to go through Hunter and Wrecker (members of Clone Force 99 who are established to be worth more than a dozen clones in strength and combat experience), as well as outrun police chasing them. She manages to give all of them trouble along the way.
  • Only in It for the Money: Her motivation at the time of her appearances in The Bad Batch.
  • Le Parkour: She's good at jumping up and down walls and Roof Hopping to get to a sniping position, pursue a target or make an escape.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • Despite being hired to kidnap her, she treats Omega with some kindness, such as by stealing some fruit when she noticed Omega was feeling hungry and giving her some advice on how to break a fall right before dropping her in the back of a moving truck.
    • When she and Boba Fett kill Bib Fortuna and his court, she spares Fortuna's slave girl, only shooting her chain and signaling her to go free.
  • Stealth Expert: Fennec infiltrates the Pyke Syndicate's headquarters in Mos Eisley and kills the Pyke bodyguards, the traitorous gotra leaders, Mok Shaiz, and finally the Pyke boss himself without any of them getting so much as a glimpse of her.
  • Tsundere: Ming-Na Wen has stated that "obviously Fennec loves Boba Fett", after he saves her life, but she also "doesn't appreciate" him for leaving her in his debt. The Book of Boba Fett shows her chafing under his merciful ways and some dumb decisions like going back into the Sarlacc pit unprotected, but she still shows she cares for him.
  • The Worf Effect: Subjects the Bad Batch to this when she goes after Omega, taking out Wrecker with one punch and giving Hunter a hard time in playing keep-away with the young clone. It's Justified in that Clone Force 99 is used to fighting programed, unthinking battle droids, not a free-thinking human like Fennec.
  • Would Hurt a Child:
    • She and Boba threaten to shoot Grogu if Mando doesn't return Boba's armor. She never had to go through with it, though.
    • At the same time, in her assignment to capture Omega, she never acted with her without the utmost politeness and professionalism, even as the chase for her meant she inadvertently puts the little girl In Harm's Way. One can chalk this up to Pragmatic Villainy, though: after all, it seems she was explicitly tasked to bring her back alive.

Members of the Fett Gotra

Palace Staff



Model: 8D-series semelter droid

Voiced by: Matt Berry (The Book of Boba Fett)

EV-9D9's sadistic assistant in Jabba's droid pool. Following Boba Fett's takeover, he becomes the new crime lord's majordomo.

  • Ascended Extra: Goes from a minor background character to Boba's majordomo and a regular supporting character in his show.
  • The Bus Came Back: Appears in The Book of Boba Fett working for Boba Fett.
  • Loyal to the Position: Serves the Daimyo, whether that be Jabba, Bib, or Boba.
  • Mr. Exposition: Spends a lot of his screentime explaining to Boba and Fennic the developments that occured in Tatooine's criminal underworld following the death of Jabba.
  • Omniglot: Boba notes that his Gotra needs a protocol droid to help translate the variety of languages on the planet. Without one, it falls on 8D8 to translate the languages that Boba (and the audience) cannot understand.
  • Torture Technician: He served under EV-9D9 in the droid pool and directly carried out her orders to torture droids, a task he relished due to being programed to be a sadist.

    Boba's Gamorrean Bodyguards 

Boba's Gamorrean Bodyguards

Species: Gamorrean

Two Gamorrean guards who served under Jabba and later Bib Fortuna. They refused to surrender when Boba took over Jabba's palace, and agreed to swear loyalty to him as his new bodyguards in exchange for their lives being spared.

  • The Big Guy: They're the primary muscle of Boba's forces until they're joined by Krrsantan.
  • Bodyguarding a Badass: They’re the bodyguards of two of the most notorious bounty hunters in the galaxy. However, they are still invaluable to Boba while he is still recovering from his trips into the Sarlacc.
  • Defiant to the End: They go down fighting to the bitter end.
  • Disney Villain Death: The Klatoonian forces push them to the edge of the cliff overlooking Mos Espa, where they fall to their deaths.
  • Forgotten Fallen Friend: Due to the chaos of the Battle of Mos Espa, no one from Boba's organization is seen mourning them and they are never mentioned again after their deaths.
  • Formerly Fat: If they were among the Gamorreans seen in Return of the Jedi, then they've lost quite a bit of weight since Jabba’s demise. It’s commonly joked that Bib had been eating all the food and starving his troops.
  • Karmic Jackpot: Boba deciding to spare them in exchange for their loyalty changing to him rewards him with two loyal bodyguards who save his life during a subsequent assassination attempt.
  • Nice to the Waiter: They’re frequently on the receiving end of this once Boba hires them on, recognizing their loyalty. Boba treats them with respect and when one of them is bitten violently by Krrsantan, he has him thrown in his bacta tank despite his own injuries.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Becoming loyal servants of a noble, benevolent daimyo like Boba ultimately results in their demise.
  • No Name Given: We never learn their names.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: It's been noted that these two guards are much less fat than the past Gamorreans seen in the franchise, and they don't have the excuse of being lean fighters like the ones Din Djarin encountered in the first episode of The Mandalorian Season 2. This is presumably to give the actors portraying them more mobility and freedom to do stunts and fight scenes compared to the fatter Gamorreans seen in past works.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: The only casualties of the Fett Gotra in the Battle of Mos Espa who prove just how badly they are outmatched against the combined forces of the Pykes and the turncoat Mos Espa crime families.
  • The Quiet One: They only speak in Hutteese and when they do, it's usually a few snorts.
  • Those Two Guys: Rarely seen apart and they function great as a team.
  • Undying Loyalty: Their key trait is that whoever is their employer, they will loyally serve them to the death. They become particularly attached to Boba, however, when he establishes himself as a benevolent ruler who values their loyalty.
  • Visual Pun: They die when they are pushed off a cliff by the Klatoonians; in other words, they’re pigs who didn’t fly.

    Rancor Keeper 

Rancor Keeper

Species: Human

Portrayed by: Danny Trejo

The new rancor keeper (replacing Malakili from Return of the Jedi) who is appointed to serve under Boba Fett when he is gifted a rancor by the Twins.

  • Cool Old Guy: An older man who is respectful and kind to the animals under his care and provides helpful advice to Boba.
  • Mr. Exposition: Most of his dialogue consists of informing Boba of the history of the rancors, and instructing him on how to properly care for one.
  • Older Sidekick: Clearly much older than Boba but is subservient to him nonetheless.
  • One-Shot Character: He only makes one appearance in "The Streets of Mos Espa".

The Mods

    The Mods 

The Mods

Portrayed by: Sophie Thatcher (Drash) and Jordan Bolger (Skad)

A cyborg swoop gang in Mos Espa made up of young delinquents, who stole from Lortha Peel before joining Boba Fett's forces.

  • All Bikers are Hells Angels: They're a swoop gang, with this attitude and aesthetic. Having expensive, colorful clothes and equipment, first they operate as water thieves then are hired as enforcers for Boba Fett.
  • Artificial Limbs: Most of the Mods have cybernetic arms equipped with useful gadgets.
  • Badass Biker: The Mods are all expert swoop riders who pull off daring stunts while chasing down the Majordomo. Additionally they all dress in stylish clothing, with several having badass longcoats.
  • Cool Bike: They all ride on swoops (the hovercraft equivalent to scooters or bikes) that are colorful and flashy while capable of performing quite impressive feats.
  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: Subverted. The water supplier speaks of the Mods as monstrous figures who are only half-human and half-machine, but they're a friendly group of cyborgs and the supplier is speaking out of greed and prejudice.
  • Cyborg: They have all enhanced their bodies with cybernetic additions made from droid parts.
  • Fantasy Counterpart Culture: Not only are the cyborg bikers equivalent to Scooter Riding Mods, the fact that they have clean clothes and shiny, colorful equipment while living in the dirt and poverty of Tatooine also makes them the Star Wars counterpart of the sapeurs and swenkas of modern-day Africa. Their name, the Mods, reflect not only the former but the fact they've "modified" themselves.
  • Out of Focus: Only Drash and Skad, the Mod's apparent leaders, have been named with most not even getting lines. The rest are generally just in the background.
  • Pet the Dog: Hearing how one of his vassals has been overcharging his water supplies to the residents, which in turn led to an increase of water thievery, Boba orders the water supplier to cut his price in half and hires the Mods, who stole from him, as his street enforcers for work.
  • Scooter-Riding Mod: The Mods are a sci-fi version of this, particularly the huge profusion of rearview mirrors mounted on their hoverbikes, and the gang member who wears a gray Badass Longcoat and a shirt with a vertical stripe that looks like a tie. Their colorful, shiny and clean bikes really stand out on the sand-covered gray-tan streets of Mos Espa. It turns out that cyborgs are literally called Mods, but it's short for "modified" instead of "modern".
  • Swiss-Army Appendage: Once the Mods catch up with the majordomo in the chase through Mos Espa, the two flanking his speeder start sabotaging the engines with their cybernetic apparati. One produces a cutting torch out of his forearm and cuts a deep gash into one of the engine nacelles.



Species: Human

Portrayed by: Sophie Thatcher

Leader of the gang of Mods in Mos Espa recruited by Boba Fett.

  • Action Girl: She is skilled at riding her swoop to stop an escaping landspeeder, and also proficient in shooting blasters.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She's a composed, beautiful cyborg gang member with dark brown hair who is a leader of her gang and seems popular among them.
  • Artificial Limbs: Has a robotic prosthetic arm.
  • Nerves of Steel: Drash stands up to Boba Fett and tells him off without displaying a single sign of fear, then stands her ground when Boba threateningly walks forward. Boba is impressed, and hires her and the rest of the gang on the spot. That same night, when she finds Boba being crushed to death by Black Krrsantan, she calmly walks up to the raging Wookiee and shanks him with a vibroknife.
  • Scooter-Riding Mod: She rides a scooter and is called a Mod, but unlike most of the rest of the gang who dress like '60s Mods, Drash ironically dresses like a Rocker, the enemies of the '60s Mods.
  • Tomboyish Voice: She has a low, husky voice to go with her status as a tough cyborg gang member.


"I paid a lot for this eye. I'm proud of it."

Species: Human

Portrayed by: Jordan Bolger

A member of the Mods swoopbiker gang recruited by Boba Fett.

  • Armed Legs: He has a Pile Bunker in his leg, with the foreleg as the piston and a deployable spike on the heel for the impactor. He uses it to smash up the majordomo's speeder engines while chasing him.
  • Badass Longcoat: He's a Badass Biker who has a long jacket on as part of his outfit.
  • Eyepatch of Power: His cybernetic right eye gives this impression, being a fairly bulky apparatus attached as much to the side of his head as to his ocular orbit.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Boba Fett catches himself while doing this with Skad, who has a conspicuous cybernetic eye, when Boba says "Keep an eye on them" during Skad's recon report the Pykes' arrival. Skad takes no offense, though.
  • Robo Cam: A shot seen through Skad's cybernetic eye reveals it does include inlays and a zoom.
  • Scooter-Riding Mod: His gang's appearance is inspired by this.
  • Unnecessary Combat Roll: During the battle against the Pyke Syndicate, Skad does a pretty gratuitous twirl on himself before shooting a Pyke goon.


    Black Krrsantan 

Black Krrsantan

Species: Wookiee

Homeworld: Kashyyyk

Portrayed by: Carey Jones
Appearances: Darth Vader | Star Wars (Marvel 2015) | Doctor Aphra | The Screaming Citadel | Bounty Hunters | The Book of Boba Fett

"I've captured enough Wookieesss and ssold them to tradersss to feed the pitsss. Until Krrsantan I'd never met one who volunteered."

A Wookiee bounty hunter frequently employed by Jabba the Hutt. Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, Darth Vader hires Black Krrsantan to hunt down and capture a mysterious agent of the Emperor. While working with Vader, Dr. Aphra comes to owe Krrsantan a large amount of credits, which he intends to collect by accompanying her after she fakes her death to escape from Vader.

  • Adaptational Attractiveness: In the comics, Krrsantan's scar is massive, crossing over his left eye and creating a noticeable "dent" in the shape of his head due to the scarred skin lacking fur. In his live-action appearance, the scar is only somewhat visible beneath his fur. It's possible the scar mostly healed in the time since receiving it in 10 BBY.
  • Ape Shall Not Kill Ape: Averted; he ties up a dying Wookiee as The Bait for slavers, kills a Wookiee in the fighting pits just out of nostalgia, and takes on Chewbacca.
  • Ax-Crazy: He's an extremely violent, aggressive, and impulsive thug whose usual response to anything that angers him (and with the amount of Berserk Buttons he has, that's not a small list) is to try and dismember or kill whoever pissed him off.
  • Battle Trophy: Takes a lock of hair from other Wookiees he kills in pit fights.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: He volunteered to train as a gladiator and finds himself Made a Slave, put through Training from Hell and artificially modified without his consent. Few are reckless enough to tell him he brought this on himself.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Due to his fearsome reputation as a savage brute, most people who deal with Krrsantan do so because he's either a useful blunt instrument, or they're piss scared of him. Boba Fett was the first person to show him genuine respect solely out of principle, so Krrsantan decides to stick around. He even loosens up a little bit with the rest of the Gotra at the end...relatively speaking.
  • Berserk Button:
    • The mere sight of the Xonti brothers is enough to send him into a rage.
    • He attacks Aphra's father when the latter makes the mistake of Tempting Fate. Of course as they're in the Star Wars universe he's quite right to do so, as is quickly demonstrated.
    • He has it out for Trandoshans in general, as he brutalizes a group of them in Mos Espa's Sanctuary cantina simply for gambling too loudly in his presence. He may have been drunk at the time...
  • Blood Knight:
    • He enjoys fighting in pit fights against captive Wookiees. At one fight on Son-tuul, Krrsantan strangled one of the Wookiees who was supposed to fight and then took his place, with the owners being too scared to say anything about it.
    • He actually volunteered to be trained as a gladiator, killing off every slaver who tried to grab him until he found one working for the infamous Zonti Brothers.
  • The Brute: A hulking, powerful character who is almost always portrayed as an antagonist in whatever story he appears in. Boba later hires him on as The Big Guy for his organization.
  • Continuity Nod: Krrsantan's ship is identical to the Wookiee gunships seen in Rebels, although the outside is made of metal instead of wood.
  • Cyborg: The Xonti Brothers gave him subdermal plating, an enhanced endoskeleton and metallic knuckles.
  • Dark Is Evil: As his name indicates, his fur is black as opposed to the primarily brown fur of most Wookiees, and he's quite a bit psychotic, with Bossk noting that he's never seen another Wookiee jump into pit fights willingly.
  • Death Glare: Just about his default expression. He gives a particularly frightening one to Boba after the letter’s first confrontation with the Twins, a not-so-subtle hint that he’s coming for him.
  • Easily Forgiven: Boba lets him go free even after his failed assassination attempt, not holding it against him since he was doing a job. By the next episode, Boba successfully hires him on as muscle for his organization.
  • Elemental Punch: Krrsantan has electrified knuckle dusters which appear to be implanted into his hands. Combined with his Wookiee strength, they became a terrifying signature of his brutality. Garsa even waxes poetically about how well known they are in the gladiatorial world.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Chewbacca: he has darker fur and is an amoral bounty hunter who works for Jabba the Hutt and Darth Vader.
  • Evil Is Bigger: He's quite a bit bulkier than Chewbacca, who he's an Evil Counterpart to.
  • Evil Is Petty: Garsa implores him to rise above this trope by sparing the last Trandoshan he’s accosted, but Krrsantan hates Trandoshans that much, so he decides to embrace this trope and relieve his victim of an arm.
  • The Exile: He is no longer welcome on Kashyyyk due to somehow "disgracing" his people. Considering his profession and what he likes to do for fun, it isn't hard to imagine how he managed to do that.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Sports one after losing an eye during the Screaming Citadel arc.
  • Fantastic Racism: He absolutely hates Trandoshans, and attacked several of them in Sanctuary all for the “crime” of having fun in front of him. This is more understandable considering Trandoshans commonly hunt Wookiees for sport, though hypocritical considering Krrsantan is no stranger to killing Wookiees for the fun of it.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has a very ugly scar over his left eye that extends over his head. It was given to him by Obi-Wan Kenobi.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: While most Wookies can be temperamental at times, Krrsantan is a time bomb, and even that undersells it. It takes very little to piss him off and send him on a murderous rampage. Even when he's calm, he has a constant scowl complete with a case of crazy eyes that makes him look like he's gonna rip off your limbs and feed them to you if you look at him even slightly wrong. Which, really, he probably would.
  • In-Series Nickname: Boba Fett likes to call him "Santo". This may double as both Meaningful Name (since there is, after all, a Real Life wrestler known as El Santo—the closest equivalent to a gladiator akin to him) and Ironic Name (since, as we've shown so far, Krrsantan is anything but saintly).
  • Made of Iron: He is able to power through getting shot numerous times during the battle in Mos Espa and survives the fight, remaining an active participant throughout.
  • Mook–Face Turn: In the context of The Book of Boba Fett, he starts off the show as The Brute hired by the Twins to kill Boba. After he fails, Boba successfully offers him a job working for him as hired muscle, making him a tenuous ally. By the end of the series he appears to be staying with Boba for the time being after having shown their loyalty to each other during the battle.
  • Oh, Crap!: Downplayed, but he clearly was surprised to be given a pardon and assurance that nothing is personal by Boba after failing to kill him. The way he hesitates, then quickly runs off, suggests he’s a bit concerned Boba will change his mind.
  • One-Man Army:
    • In order to get Aphra and the others into the main temple on Yavin IV, Krrsantan tricks the Imperial garrison. Aphra notes that it is hardly a fair fight for the Empire, who get decimated by Krrsantan.
    • He more than holds his own against Boba’s understaffed criminal organization, and Fennec has to drop him in the rancor pit to defeat him.
    • In the climactic battle of The Book of Boba Fett, he is swarmed by a dozen opponents all at once, who seemingly manage to pin him down. Fast forward a few scenes later, and Krrsantan has fought most of them off, making his way back to allies while battling the few enemies still clinging to him.
  • Psycho for Hire: He works as a mercenary, but reflexively attacks Trandoshans with little or no provocation, even when offered money not to.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: He’s a nasty piece of work, but if the money is right, he will even work for a target he failed to kill on his previous job. He shows a grudging respect to Boba perhaps out of gratitude for sparing him after his failed hit job, and eventually agrees to a job working for him.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here: After the situation at the Citadel of Rur deteriorates, with Imperial forces trapping Aphra and her father, Krrsantan leaves on her ship with the droids, telling he will find her if she manages to live so she can repay him. Aphra does escape, and Krrsantan finds her soon after.
  • Spikes of Villainy: His shoulder pads have several spikes on them.
  • Stereotype Flip:
    • Most Wookiees are honorable beings who only fight when necessary. Krrsantan is a violent brute who enjoys killing enslaved Wookiees in pit fights.
    • Wookiees traditionally use wood in most of their technology out of respect to nature. All of Krrsantan's equipment is drawn with a metallic gleam to show that he isn't using an ounce of wood. Krrsantan even flies a Wookiee gunship, but it's made of steel.
  • Stranger in a Familiar Land: He was once a famous gladiator but finds his violence shunned in the more civilized Mos Espa of the New Republic. Boba finds him a willing recruit when offered the opportunity to do what he does best.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: An Ax-Crazy black furred Wookiee who is an Evil Counterpart to another well-known member of the same species, who was Made a Slave before becoming a Bounty Hunter, closely associated with a Mandalorian who he at one point holds in a Neck Lift? Are we talking about Krrsantan, or Hanharr?
  • The Unintelligible: Being a Wookiee this is a given, since he can only speak Shyriiwook, which sounds like growls and roars to non-Wookiees not fluent in the language.
  • Unwilling Roboticisation: Zigzagged. On one hand, the cybernetic enhancements the Xonti brothers gave him were done against his will, and he's still irate about it. On the other hand, he does not seem to mind the enhanced durability or killing power they provide him, especially his electrified knuckleduster implants.
  • Villainous Friendship: With another bounty hunter named Beebox, who he gives a lock of hair from his latest kill in the fighting pits. He later develops one with Boba Fett, though by that point they're both somewhere between Anti-Villain and Nominal Hero.
  • You Owe Me: Keeps following Chelli Aphra around not because they are friends, but because she owes him money. He lets it drop after he gets his hands on the Xonti brothers.
