The Hutt Clan

Among the largest criminal cartels in the galaxy, the Hutt Clan was led by the Grand Hutt Council on the Hutt homeworld of Nal Hutta. The Hutt crime families that made up the clan were known as kajidics. Under their control was the informal sector known as "Hutt Space", in which many of the native species, including the Weequay, Nikto, Vodran, Jilruan, Sakiyans, and Ganks, were conquered and forced into servitude to the Hutt Clans. In the aftermath of the Galactic Civil War, the Hutt Clan lost much of its power with the fall of the Empire and rise of the New Republic, with many of their slave races rising in rebellion and freeing their homeworlds from Hutt control.

"<Han, my boy, you disappoint me.>"

Portrayed by: Toby Philpott, David Alan Barclay, Mike Edmonds
Voiced by: Scott Schumann (The Phantom Menace), Kevin Michael Richardson (The Clone Wars), Ben Burtt (A New Hope), Larry Ward (Return of the Jedi)

"<This bounty hunter is my kind of scum, fearless and inventive!>"

As the leader of the Desilijic crime family, Jabba the Hutt was one of the galaxy’s most powerful gangsters, with far-reaching influence in both politics and the criminal underworld. There were no second chances with Jabba, which is something Han Solo would find out — though the slug-like alien would ultimately fall victim to his own hubris and vengeful ways when foolishly underestimating a certain Jedi.


  • Abhorrent Admirer: To Leia and every slave girl he owns. They can't really resist his advances since he has them on a chain leash.
  • Adaptational Villainy: As depraved as he is in canon, he's even worse in the Shakespearean adaptations of the films.
  • Adipose Rex: Though he's a fat crime lord instead of a fat king.
  • Alice Allusion: The costume designer on Return of the Jedi acknowledged the Caterpillar from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland as an inspiration for Jabba the Hutt (although Roger Ebert pointed out that Jabba's face looks more like the Cheshire Cat).
  • Arc Villain: Getting out from Jabba's thumb motivates much of Han's actions across the original trilogy, and saving Han from his clutches makes up the opening act of Return of the Jedi.
  • Bad Boss: He harshly punishes anybody who fails him, often by feeding them alive to whatever monstrous pet he currently keeps.
    Fennec Shand: "If you had spoken such insolence to Jabba, he would have fed you to his menagerie."
  • Bad People Abuse Animals: He doesn't treat animals that well, with the exception of Salacious B. Crumb (and even then, Crumb only lives if he could make Jabba laugh every day). Not only does he eat live animals as part of his diet, but he often kills them out of boredom when watching the annual Boonta Eve Podrace in The Phantom Menace. Additionally, he deliberately starves his Rancor so that it will always be hungry and aggressive whenever he drops someone down the Rancor pit.
  • Bait the Dog: Jabba's conversation with Han in Special Edition of A New Hope is one of the few times that Jabba is actually being nice and reasonable, even explaining why he felt Han shouldn't have jettisoned the spice when the Empire came inspecting. But then he ends his wonderful speech by reminding Han if he fails to pay him this time, he'll put a bounty on his head that's so large that Han will never step foot on any star system civilization again.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Jabba's love of theatrics backfires with both the Rancor pit and the Sarlacc. In the Rancor's case, the concept is sound but the switch that controls the gate was left within reach of its victims. With the Sarlacc, he insists on executing Luke and company in the most dramatic way possible despite having just seen another Gladiator Games-style demise fail.
  • Bounty Hunter: Most bounty hunters answer to Jabba, who places most illegal bounties out, to begin with. Jabba also isn't above being a bounty hunter himself if the opportunity presents itself.
  • Bullying a Dragon: This is an unfortunate trait of Jabba's when dealing with Force-users like the Jedi or Sith. Whenever they come for negotiations or with forcible demands, Jabba always acts like he's the more powerful of the two even if the person in question can easily use the Force or their lightsaber to kill him.
    • In The Clone Wars' pilot movie, Jabba tries to have Anakin executed on the spot for allegedly abducting his son Rotta and only gets angrier instead of being afraid when Anakin points a lightsaber at his face. Even when his son is returned to him by Ahsoka, Jabba still wants them killed despite the fact that there are now two Jedi in the room.
    • In "Eminence", Jabba laughs off Maul's offer of joining his Shadow Collective faction despite Maul having made examples of those who refused his invitation, though it's justified as he was on Tatooine when Maul invaded the Hutt Council and only accepts his demands when the Sith personally stormed into his palace and overwhelmed his goons.
    • In Darth Vader, when Darth Vader himself comes on behalf of the Empire, Jabba is rather unimpressed by his presence and mistakenly believes he is a Jedi. After slaughtering most of Jabba's thugs, Vader swiftly reminds Jabba that he's dealing with a Sith Lord by Force-choking the Hutt into submission. Even then, Jabba is less afraid and more amused by Vader's intimidation methods.
    • This ultimately leads to his downfall when he decides to not heed Luke's warnings or demands (despite the fact Luke managed to kill a Rancor without a lightsaber), and decides to execute him and his friends at the Great Pit of Carkoon. His men get overwhelmed by Luke thanks to the "gifts" that Jabba foolishly took, and Jabba ends up being strangled by Leia, a rebel leader he thought he could easily make a slave out of.
  • Call-Forward: The 2015 Star Wars comics reveal he was once force-choked by Darth Vader, foreshadowing his death years afterward by Vader's daughter.
  • The Cameo: He appears as the host of the podrace in The Phantom Menace, but sleeps through most of it.
  • Characterization Marches On: In his debut in A New Hope, Jabba is remarkably more affable and forgiving than the sadistic and utterly ruthless gangster he would be characterized as in all his appearances thereafter.
  • Character as Himself: The credits for Phantom Menace list Jabba as being played by himself.
  • The Chessmaster: In The Clone Wars, Jabba used the fact that it was too dangerous to leave Ziro in Republic custody to have him broken out by Cad Bane on the Hutt Council's payroll, not his own. Then he used Sy Snootles, who also wanted revenge against Ziro, to A) get the holodiary, which gave him the edge against the other members of the Hutt Council, and B) to avenge the kidnapping of Rotta, in which Ziro had a hand, via killing Ziro.
  • Classic Villain: He embodies Sloth (never leaves his dais), Gluttony (always eating and also provides the page image for Villainous Glutton), and Lust (slave girls).
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: He was choked to death with a metal chain, and it wasn't quick. As well deserved as it was, it's noted that Hutts should be very hard for normal humanoids to kill this way (among conventional methods) due to their many layers of fat and muscle. Leia tapped into the Dark Side of the Force to give her a boost in strength when she strangled Jabba and earned the nickname "Huttslayer" In-Universe because of it.
  • Death by Irony: Leia strangles him with her slave chain.
  • Diabolical Mastermind: Of a galactic criminal organization.
  • Dirty Old Man: He's 604 years old (roughly middle-aged by Hutt standards), and he loves molesting young females of smaller and supposedly weaker species — including Princess Leia, who is still in her early twenties at the time.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: For the first act of Return of the Jedi, though it's clear that he's this from the get-go instead of being set up as the true Big Bad of the film.
  • Does Not Speak Common: Like most Huttese-speakers in the franchise, he only speaks Huttese, despite understanding Basic and being physically capable of speaking it if he so chose.
  • The Don: He runs one of the most powerful criminal syndicates in the galaxy. Or, "ran" in his case, as he wound up dead in spite of it all.
  • The Dreaded: Han is normally able to remain calm and collected, but he's motivated in A New Hope by his need to pay off his debt to Jabba. Being caught by Jabba's Palace without any weapons or bargaining chips leaves him stuttering.
  • Equal-Opportunity Evil: His criminal empire is remarkably diverse and includes too many species to list. This is especially in contrast with The Empire, which discriminates against everyone except humans and select near humans.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Albeit in a production wise though chronologically later case. He's first seen taking C-3PO and R2-D2 with no intention of releasing Han to Luke in return, and then drops Oola to her death in the jaws of the Rancor for refusing him.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He clearly adores his son Rotta and has a legitimate friendship with Ephant Mon.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Jabba the Hutt enjoys making loud declarations and waving his arms as he sends people to be eaten alive by giant monsters.
  • Evil Is Not Well-Lit: He often spends his time in grungy, low-lit environments.
  • Evil Is Petty:
    • Not only does he refuses to accept Luke's several bargain offers for Solo, but he decides to take Luke's "gifts" anyways to mock him. This proves to be his undoing as Luke smuggled his lightsaber into R2-D2, setting up a trap for the Hutt when he later tries to execute the Jedi and his friends.
    • He kills his personal slave dancer Oola for refusing his advancements, then laughs as he sees her getting eaten by the Rancor.
  • Evil Laugh: Laughs often at those who he thinks he has completely in his power.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He has an extremely deep voice.
  • Expy: Of the Baron Harkonnen from Dune, and also of Sydney Greenstreet (see No Celebrities Were Harmed) and Luca Brasi. Others have noted his appearance somewhat resembles God Emperor Leto II's ascended form, as well as the Caterpillar from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: He's slowly and obviously painfully strangled to death by Leia.
  • Fat Bastard: Being a giant slug who runs a criminal organization makes this a given. Jabba's name has become synonymous in pop culture with Fat Bastards, and his name is sometimes invoked as an insult.
  • Faux Affably Evil: When Jabba is approached by someone he appreciates, he usually drops his jerkish behavior in favor of trying to sweet-talk his way into making a profitable deal. However if things don’t go his way, he will drop the affability completely and order them slaughtered.
  • Fatal Flaw: Jabba's hedonistic lifestyle has deluded the Hutt into thinking the galaxy revolves around him and that he can do whatever he wants in his territory. It nearly got him killed several times by factions led by more powerful figures like Maul and Vader, before it really does him in when he tries to enslave or execute high profile Rebel heroes in his last days.
  • The Ghost: He was this in the original theatrical release of A New Hope, being casually referenced but never actually appearing as he does in recuts. This was due to the lack of time and budget necessary to film Jabba's scene.
  • Go-Go Enslavement: A favorite tactic of his was to slap whatever unfortunate woman he could find in the skimpiest outfit possible. Leia was the last of his victims, and wound up killing him while wearing the very outfit he forced her in.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: For Han's character arc until Return of the Jedi. He's the one with a bounty on Han that causes the scoundrel unease at remaining in one place for too long and drives his reluctance to join the Rebellion. Much like the Emperor, his presence becomes stronger in The Empire Strikes Back before he finally appears in Return of the Jedi.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: If something does not go in Jabba's way in the slightest, you'll be able to tell from his reaction.
  • Has a Type: Female humanoids appear to be his main lust objects, judging by the Twi'lek slave girls at his palace (and later his Go-Go Enslavement of Princess Leia).
  • Hate Sink: He's a disgusting (physically and mentally), cruel, sleazy asshole.
  • Hidden Depths: He is ruthless but generally fair to his underlings, and he found beauty in things most beings would dismiss as ugly and useless.
  • I Have You Now, My Pretty: "<Soon you will learn to appreciate me.>"
  • The Hedonist: When it comes down to it, Jabba just loves a good time with plentiful food, women, and entertainment.
  • Immune to Mind Control: Jabba is immune to the effects of the Jedi Mind Trick, allowing him to confront the likes of Luke Skywalker without fear of being swindled.
  • It's Personal: He already wasn't pleased with Han's constant welching, but when Luke kills the rancor in his attempt to rescue him, he decides to have the two of them, along with Chewie, executed together.
  • Jabba Table Manners: The Trope Namer. He shovels in gourmet food by the handful. A fair amount of it is alive when he eats it. He can even swallow humans whole.
  • Jerkass: The Mighty Jabba isn't known for his manners.
  • Karmic Death: He is killed by Leia with her slave chain after he didn't take her brother seriously.
  • Kevlard: Hutts are notoriously difficult to kill because of their many layers of fat and muscle, being able to even shrug off blaster bolts. The reason many in the criminal underworld made a big deal out of Leia killing Jabba and gave her the nickname "Huttslayer" was her defiance of this trope, as Leia unconsciously tapped into the Dark Side of the Force for a strength boost when she was strangling him to death.
  • Kick the Dog: Despite being in Return of the Jedi for only about 30 minutes, he does several:
    • Torturing droids in his basement and threatening C-3PO with the same.
    • Dropping poor Oola into the rancor pit when she won't submit to him.
    • Making Leia wear the slave bikini and chaining her to him.
    • Trying to feed Han and Chewbacca to the Sarlacc along with Luke even though they had nothing to do with the rancor's death.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: In "Eminence", he submits to Darth Maul after it becomes clear that Jabba's forces are no match for him.
  • Large and in Charge: Lord knows how his personal cruise ship manages to stay afloat.
  • Large Ham: Every word of Huttese that comes out of his mouth has traces of the scenery.
  • The Magnificent: Every character calls him adjectives like "Mighty" or "Almighty" whenever they are speaking to him.
  • Mars Needs Women: While he's kept many alien humanoid females as his slaves, he does have a particular interest in the human Leia, likely because she's a princess and a Rebel leader, and thus more valuable than his dime a dozen slaves.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: After enslaving Leia, Jabba attempts to have her lover Han fed to the Sarlaac with his friends while forcing her to watch.
  • Necessary Evil: In a way, Jaba was this for Tatooine. Jabba's death has a profoundly negative impact on Tatooine's economy, turning its bustling settlements into ghost towns and inadvertently paving the way for Tusken Raiders to gain more turf with the fearsome Hutt dead and many criminal networks subsquently leaving the planet. Under Bib Fortuna's incompetent leadership, things were all but stated to have gotten worse with his selfishness. While it remains to be seen how Tatooine will fare under Boba Fett, especially with him chasing the Pykes out and its economy taking yet another hit from the fallout of his war with them, the man is determined to make the planet thrive again in a more respectful way than how Jabba led with fear.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Based on Sydney Greenstreet, a classic Film Noir actor who appeared alongside Peter Lorre and Humphrey Bogart in movies like Casablanca and The Maltese Falcon.
  • No-Sell: He laughs off Luke's attempt to mindtrick him in Return of the Jedi, as Hutts as a species are naturally immune.
    Jabba: <Your mind powers won't work on me, boy!>
  • Non-Action Big Bad: In Return of the Jedi, Jabba doesn't actually fight the heroes personally. At most, he simply pushes a button to send Luke down to the Rancor pit and struggles to remove the chain from his neck as Leia strangles him. It's justified because he's a fat slug who relies on his minions to do the dirty work for him.
  • Only in It for the Money: His MO, befitting a crime lord. It explains why Jabba will help anyone striking a good bargain from the Republic to the Empire. In particular, Jabba even made a halfhearted effort at taking on the outrageously high bounty the Rebellion put on Darth Vader before being quickly put in his place.
  • Orcus on His Throne: He spends A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back inactive, even though Han owes him money and broke his bargain to help the Rebellion. Even when he does show up, he loafs around on his throne as a spectator.
  • Papa Wolf: In The Clone Wars, Jabba was ready to align with whoever rescued his son Rotta. When it seemed like Anakin had killed Rotta, Jabba was ready to have him executed at the spot. Plus, there is also the fact that he retaliated against Ziro for kidnapping Rotta via hiring Sy Snootles to kill him along with retrieving the holodiary. His love for his son was apparently strong enough to make him relent and allow Papanoida to make a case against Greedo when he appealed to his love for Rotta to have him help him find his daughters.
  • Pet the Dog: Although a terrible gangster who loves to rule with fear, Jabba isn't completely evil. He does have a few moments of kindness and respect:
    • Jabba truly loves his son Rotta, to the point that he's willing to help the Republic with their hyperspace lane problems if they can rescue his son.
    • He also helps Chairman Papanoida find his daughters and decides to spare Azool Phantelle's life after he was caught stealing in Jabba's territory because of his relation to Max Rebo. However, he still punished Azool by making him serve as a waiter on his sail barge.
    • He also stands up for the old and senile Marlo in War Of The Bounty Hunters, telling Bokku to let the elderly Hutt rest and take into account his advanced age.
  • Plot-Irrelevant Villain: In the original trilogy, he ultimately serves as little more than a distraction from the heroes' mission to bring down the Empire.
  • Prefers Raw Meat: As a consummate slovenly Villainous Glutton, he keeps an aquarium of live frog-like amphibians by his dais for snack food.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: His behavior is much more indicative of this than that of your typical gangster. He throws fits whenever things don't go his way.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He's 604 years old, people.
  • Reclining Reigner: He sits atop a bunch of pillows at his palace.
  • Right-Hand Attack Dog: Jabba keeps a Rancor in his palace dungeon to execute anyone who threatens the Hutt.
  • Sadist: Jabba is very open to the idea of senseless violence and murder. He also enjoys seeing his victims being executed.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: According to Son of Dathomir, he and the Hutt Clan broke off from the Shadow Collective after Darth Maul was captured by Sidious. The Hutts are used to being one of the top dogs in the criminal underworld and they only joined because Maul threatened to kill them after defeating their forces. With Maul missing and his strongest soldiers (the Mandalorians) decreasing in number due to a civil war, this was the perfect opportunity to jump ship.
  • Slouch of Villainy: Being a huge slug, Jabba sits on his dais showcasing his entire body, with an armrest on his left side.
  • Smug Snake: Han offers to pay his debts to him and Jabba refuses to listen; when Leia and Luke warn Jabba that they could defeat him, Jabba and his minions do not take them seriously at all. Even when being led to the Sarlacc pit Luke says "this is your last chance; free us, or die." Jabba and his minions still refuse to take them seriously. Jabba is offered so many warnings and so many chances for alternatives that for him to still keep ignoring the heroes makes his Karmic Death all the more satisfying.
  • Starfish Aliens: Hutts are large slug-like creatures with toad-like heads.
  • Stupid Evil: Jabba loves to rule with fear, so much so that he wouldn't reason with anyone that comes to bargain, even if the deal is beneficial to him. And when it comes to executions, Jabba opts for a theatrical experience rather than simply shooting them on spot or even selling them to the Empire. He's so predictable in his evil that Luke is able to formulate a plan accurately anticipating what Jabba would do next, and Boba blames Jabba's idiocy for nearly getting him killed.
  • Tattooed Crook: He's a criminal leader with his clan tattoo etched into his right forearm.
  • The Thing That Would Not Leave: His palace was originally a B'omarr monastery until he moved in and took over, though the B'omarr monks also continue to use it.
  • Tranquil Fury: Whenever he meets Han. He speaks very calmly and without any obvious shows of anger, but he is well and truly pissed off by the smuggler's failure to repay his debts.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Even though he was a powerful crime lord surrounded by a small personal army, Jabba really should've taken Luke Skywalker a little more seriously. Especially after Luke uttered the words "this is your last chance. Free us, or die."
    Luke: I'm taking Captain Solo and his friends with me. You can either profit by this or be destroyed. It's your choice, but I warn you not to underestimate my powers.
    Jabba: <There will be no bargain, young Jedi. I shall enjoy watching you die.>
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Jabba either doesn't know or more likely, doesn't care, that the Jedi he's trying to kill is the son of one of the Jedi who rescued his own beloved son maybe two decades earlier. One could argue that it's the former, but the mention of "Skywalker" ought to have tipped him off.
  • Villain Ball: He tried to have some of the most influential Rebel leaders executed, including a Jedi. Yeah.
  • Villain Has a Point: Han chose to become a smuggler, he chose to work for Jabba, and he exaggerated his skills to get the job, so Jabba wasn't out of line to expect Han to pay him back for the jettisoned cargo. He also had a good reason to be upset that instead of paying him back, Han ran off to play hero with the Rebellion. Later subverted since the entire conflict was over money, and Jabba refused to accept Luke's offer to pay for Han's release.
  • Villainous Crush: He takes Leia as a slave and forced her to sit near him at all times, insisting that he'll make her "appreciate" him. She does not reciprocate, and kills him instead.
  • Villainous Friendship: With his head of security, Ephant Mon.
  • Villainous Glutton: His appearances in The Phantom Menace and Return Of The Jedi both featured him eating live animals.
  • We Have Reserves: Clearly how he views his guards as when one of the Gamorreans falls into the rancor pit along with Luke, he just laughs as the rancor eats him.
  • Worthy Opponent: He initially thinks of "Boushh" as this for haggling the price for Chewie with the help of a thermal detonator, and it lasts until he finds out Boushh is Leia in disguise.
  • Your Size May Vary: His CGI form in the updated A New Hope looks only about half as big as his puppet form in Return of the Jedi.

    Rotta 

Rotta the Huttlet

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rotta_sw.png

Species: Hutt

Homeworld: Tatooine

Voiced by: David Acord
Appearances: The Clone Wars

"The most gracious Jabba has one more small condition: he demands you bring back the slime who kidnapped his little... 'Punky-Muffin'."
TC-70

Heir apparent to the Hutt empire, Jabba's infant son was barely old enough to slither before his conniving and power-hungry great-uncle, Ziro, already had him marked for death at the time of the Clone Wars. Ziro arranged for Rotta to be kidnapped as part of an elaborate scheme to discredit the Jedi Knights and prevent them from entering an alliance with the Hutts.


  • Affectionate Nickname: Jabba calls him "Punky-Muffin". Anakin and Ahsoka call him "Stinky".
  • Badass and Baby: He was the "baby" part of this to both Ahsoka and Anakin.
  • The Cameo: After first appearing in The Clone Wars' pilot movie, he reappears in "Sphere of Influence".
  • Children Are Innocent: In spite of being involved with the affairs of a crime lord, the infant seems to be good-natured.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Jabba loved the little guy.
  • Improbable Infant Survival: Even though the plot of the pilot movie involves around him being kidnapped and possibly being hurt, no harm befalls him.
  • Missing Mom: With the retcon that Hutts are no longer asexually-reproducing hermaphrodites like they were in Legends (making Jabba a Truly Single Parent in that continuity), it's now clear that Rotta had a mother. What isn't quite clear is her identity and her fate.
  • Morality Pet: To Jabba. He's one of the few people he genuine cares about.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: He is a very adorable Huttlet.
  • Ugly Cute:invoked As Ahsoka points out, he's a Hutt, but that doesn't stop him from being very adorable.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: As a result of being Jabba's son and heir, it remains to be seen what happened to Rotta after his father's death in Return of the Jedi (if he even survived that long). The fact Bib Fortuna and later Boba Fett took over, and that The Twins made claim to Jabba's Empire and not Rotta does not spell well for Rotta's fortunes.

    Gardulla the Hutt 

Gardulla Besadii the Elder

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gardulla_besadii_sw.png

Species: Hutt

Homeworld: Nal Hutta

Voiced by: Nika Futterman

A Hutt crime lord who served as Jabba's representative on the Grand Hutt Council. Gardulla was the former owner of Shmi and Anakin Skywalker, who she lost to Watto on a bet.


  • All There in the Manual: Her full name is revealed in the reference book "Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know".
  • The Don: She runs a major Hutt crime syndicate, although she is subservient to Jabba.
  • Mouth of Sauron: Jabba does not attend meetings of the council himself and makes rare appearances by hologram. Instead, Gardulla represents his interests and opinions.
  • Progressively Prettier: Downplayed. She at least looks less gonky in The Clone Wars than she was back in The Phantom Menace.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: For a time, at least. In Legends she was killed by Jango Fett shortly before he was selected as the template for the clone army. In the current canon, she survives at least ten years past that and is alive during the Clone Wars with her eventual fate unknown.
  • The Syndicate: As part of the Grand Hutt Council, she helps direct the Hutt's criminal enterprises, and she has added power from being Jabba's representative.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: She only appears in the first meeting of the Grand Hutt Council seen in The Clone Wars and is not present in any of their later appearances. The fact she didn't lay claim to Jabba's throne after he died suggests she may not be around any longer, or simply didn't care to try for it.

    Bib Fortuna 

Bib Fortuna

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bib_fortuna_sw.png

Species: Twi'lek

Homeworld: Ryloth

Portrayed by: Matthew Wood (The Phantom Menace, The Mandalorian), Michael Carter (Return of the Jedi)
Voiced by: Erik Bauersfield (Return of the Jedi)

Jabba the Hutt's majordomo, whose affiliation with Jabba stretched over decades.


  • 0% Approval Rating: Bib Fortuna was not a popular clan leader after usurping Jabba's position. Fennec Shand mentions how most of the captains under Jabba's command left the Hutt clan and attempted to take his place, but ultimately were manipulated into not doing so. Shand further admits that Fortuna had no right to the throne and was a terrible leader whose actions only crippled Tatooine's economy further.
  • Adaptational Personality Change: Big time. In Legends, Bib Fortuna was a huge narcissist and The Starscream to Jabba, despising the Hutt with every fiber of his being and often trying to have him (unsuccessfully) killed so he can take his place. In canon, he is a pathetic Sycophantic Servant that sucks up to Jabba constantly to stay in his good graces. However, while he makes no attempts to overthrow Jabba here, he does waste no time in seizing control of some of his assets and influence after his death.
  • Adipose Rex: Affter Jabba's death, Bib Fortuna became the new daimyo of Tatooine and became very fat after indulging himself with the palace's large food supplies.
  • Alien Hair: His lekku.
  • Asshole Victim: The Pykes killed the Tuskens and made it look like the Kinten Striders, and by extension Bib Fortuna, were responsible. Boba Fett killed him in revenge. While innocent of the specific crime that Boba wanted revenge for (mostly, he was somewhat indirectly responsible since he maintained his position as Jabba's successor by simply letting other crime syndicates run wild on Tatooine), he deserved it for plenty of other reasons.
  • Back for the Dead: The Stinger of The Mandalorian Chapter 16 reveals that Bib Fortuna survived the destruction of Jabba's Sail Barge and spent the last five years ruling over Jabba's palace. Shortly after this reveal, Boba Fett shows up and shoots him dead.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: The heads of the Mos Espa crime families only accepted him as daimyo because he largely left them to their own devices and gave them some tribute. Nobody truly respected him, however, and his reign comes to an end when Boba and Fennec outright waltz in through the front door and easily take him and his guards down.
  • Big Eater: As evidenced by his weight gain by the time Boba arrives to dethrone him. Even when Boba and Fennec took over, the kitchens still prepared far too much food for any one or two people to eat on their own, having not gotten the message that the new masters of the palace are not this trope.
  • Bilingual Dialogue: He spoke only Huttese while conversing with Luke Skywalker, who spoke in Basic.
  • Cunning Linguist: Although he only speaks Huttese in Return of the Jedi (as per the rules of Jabba's court), his databank entry notes he understands many languages.
  • Death by Adaptation: In the Legends continuity, he would go through one hell of a bizarre adventure before ultimately coming out on top and building his own criminal enterprise. In canon, while he's spared from the fate of having his brain transplanted into a B'omarr Monk spider droid, his criminal empire is cut short when Boba Fett shows up and kills him to seize control over the palace.
  • Dirty Coward: He abandons Jabba and Boba during the Battle of the Pit of Carkoon, and takes over what's left of Jabba's criminal empire to indulge in a hedonistic lifestyle. When Boba shows up to take the throne from him five years later, Bib Fortuna cowardly grovels before the pissed off ex-bounty hunter.
  • Dirty Old Man: He's been around for over 50 years, likely in his 70s, and he likes to keep slave girls, one human, the other a Twi'lek, as his pleasure companions.
  • The Dragon: As Jabba's majordomo, he runs Jabba's day-to-day business, vets those seeking an audience with him, and offers advice and information. He becomes a Dragon Ascendant and seemingly took over Jabba's organization after the Hutt's death but is soon overthrown by Boba.
  • Evil Old Folks: Bib is quite a senior citizen. Twi'leks have roughly the same lifespan as humans. Bib was serving Jabba for decades, and back in Episode One he wasn't exactly young. This didn't stop him from having his own slave girl in Return of the Jedi, and in The Mandalorian.
  • Fat Bastard: He has gained weight since Return of the Jedi, almost rivaling Orn Free Taa in terms of obesity. Evidently, Fortuna is trying to emulate his former master in more ways than one.
  • Formerly Fit: He put on quite the weight since Jabba's demise.
  • Pet the Dog: He is genuinely affectionate to Muchi, greeting the rancor warmly and is thrilled that she's safe to a point that clearly goes beyond pragmatism.
  • Retcon: The Star Wars databank entry stated he died when the barge exploded instead of escaping as he did in the Legends continuity. This was retconned in The Stinger of The Mandalorian, where it's revealed that Bib Fortuna survived and took over Jabba's palace as its new crime lord... until Boba Fett shows up and kills him for the throne.
  • Rubber-Forehead Aliens: Comes with being a Twi'lek.
  • Scary Teeth: He has very sharp and pointy teeth. Justified as male Twi'leks usually have their teeth filed.
  • Sycophantic Servant: According to Boba Fett in From a Certain Point of View, he constantly sucks up to Jabba.
  • Villainous Glutton: If the meal served to Boba and Fennec is any indication, Bib was indulging in monstrous amounts of food for the last five years alone.
  • Villainous Legacy: He's dead by The Book of Boba Fett but his death and legacy casts a shadow over the conspiracy that makes the central plot.
  • Weak-Willed: Luke Skywalker easily dominates him with a Jedi Mind Trick to gain an audience with Jabba.

    Ephant Mon 

Ephant Mon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ephant_mon_sw.png

Species: Chevin

Homeworld: Vinsoth

A male Chevin, Mon was Jabba's loyal head of security and one of the Hutt's few friends.


  • All There in the Manual: He is just a background character in Return of the Jedi, but his name and background come from the canonical sourcebooks that draw from Legends material.
  • Arms Dealer: He originally worked for a weapons emporium as an inventory manager, before killing his boss after too many insults and then planning to take over.
  • Body Horror: His head is about the size of a human and his short, stubby, body is about half its size. He looks like a horrid mix between an elephant and an aged human. He became popular with some fans just because of how ugly he is! Apparently, all Chevins look like this. According to his own testimony in Legends, he was considered handsome by Chevin standards in his youth.
  • Meaningful Name: "Ephant Mon" sounds like "Elephant Man", which is what the character looks like.
  • Only Sane Man: He attempted to warn Jabba about the danger that Luke posed to him, but was ignored.
  • Schrödinger's Canon: In Legends, he was slightly Force-sensitive, which was how he was aware of the danger Luke posed to Jabba.
  • Villainous Friendship: With Jabba.

    Malakili 

Malakili

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/malakili_sw.png

Species: Human

Homeworld: Corellia

Portrayed by: Paul Brooke

The keeper of Jabba's rancor. After the disintegration of Jabba's criminal empire, Malakili joined the settlement of "Freetown".


  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: After the death of the rancor, he tried to find companionship in other creatures, even attempting to train the sarlacc. When this failed he wandered around Tatooine until he met Cobb Vanth, sheriff of Freetown, who offered him work as a ronto tamer and as the caretaker of a baby Hutt.
  • Fan Disservice: A overweight hairy man without a shirt crying over the body of a rancor certainly helps balance out the Fanservice from Jabba's slave girls.
  • Fluffy Tamer: He tamed a rancor, one of the most fearsome beasts in the galaxy, and is devastated when Luke kills it.
    George Lucas: I like the idea that everyone loves someone. And even the worst, most horrible monster you can imagine was loved by his keeper. And the rancor probably loved his keeper.
  • Inelegant Blubbering: After the rancor is killed, he shoves past all the guards trying to apprehend Luke to cry over the rancor's body.
  • Made a Slave: He was sold into slavery while working as a circus beastmaster on Nar Shaddaa after one of his beasts escaped and killed several audience members.
  • Parental Substitute: In Aftermath: Life Debt he is asked to teach a baby Hutt rescued from a gang that wanted to put it on Jabba's throne.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He hasn’t been seen since Freetown made its live action debut.

    Tessek 

Tessek

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tessek_sw.png

Species: Quarren

Homeworld: Mon Cala

Portrayed by: Gerald Home

A Quarren accountant and patron for Jabba the Hutt.


  • Cthulhumanoid: Comes with being a Quarren (and the first one introduced in the Canon).
  • Morally Bankrupt Banker: He took advantage of his position as Jabba's bookkeeper to embezzle money into his own accounts.
  • The Starscream: He was one of several criminals serving under Jabba that was plotting to assassinate him and then take over his criminal empire. However, Jabba was aware of Tessek's scheming thanks to the B'Omarr monks reporting it. However, as Tessek was present on Jabba's sail barge at the Pit of Carkoon, Jabba didn't get to act on Tessek's treachery.
  • Uncertain Doom: He was last seen aboard Jabba's sail barge. He escaped the barge's destruction in Legends, but when he returned to Jabba's palace to claim the Hutt's wealth, the B'omarr monks reclaimed the palace and had Tessek (along with several other conspirators) forcefully "inducted" (but compared to some of the other conspirators and people who tried to con the monks, Tessek was fairly content with his fate since it found him peace).

    EV-9D9 

EV-9D9

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ev9d9_sw.png
"You're a feisty little one. But you'll soon learn some respect."

Model: EV-series supervisor droid

Voiced by: Richard Marquand, Mark Hamill (The Mandalorian)
Appearances: Return of the Jedi | The Mandalorian

"Ah, good. New acquisitions."

A sadistic droid who oversaw Jabba's droid pool.


  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Downplayed. The Legends version of 9D9 was not only a lot crueler than her canon counterpart was shown to be, she had a criminal record that included terrorism on Cloud City and predated joining Jabba's criminal empire. In fact, she's now in charge of the old cantina in Mos Eisley.
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: She was meant to be a supervisor droid that served as a peaceful moisture vaporator mechanic. However, she had a programming defect shared among many other EV units that made them unusually cruel towards other droids. She was one of the few EV units to escape MerenData's mass recall and ended up in Jabba's droid pool. Legends material suggests this programming glitch in the EV-series is actually a result of a manufacturing error that involved installing a motivator from an illegal torture droid in them.
  • Creator Cameo: Voiced by the director of Return of the Jedi in the film, and then by Luke Skywalker himself in The Mandalorian.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Downplayed. A malfunction had already started caused her to take on sadistic traits, but some reprogramming exacerbated the problem by a thousandfold.
  • Face–Heel Turn: She used to be a peaceful droid, until a malfunction and some subsequent reprogramming that enhanced the malfunction's effects turned her into the sadistic droid we all know.
  • Heel–Face Brainwashing: After Jabba's death, she was deactivated and reprogrammed from a sadistic torturer to a humble bartender.
  • Mook Lieutenant: In charge of the droids who serve Jabba.
  • Robotic Psychopath: She appears to take great pleasure in torturing Jabba's other droids. However, this is a trope inherent in all EV units because of programming errors, and Jabba decided to capitalize on that.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: In Legends, EV-9D9 was destroyed some time after Jabba's death (and it was a very gruesome but karmic death by droid standards seeing as she was known to torture droids). In The Mandalorian, she was simply deactivated alongside the rest of Jabba's droid pool after his death and reprogrammed to become a bartender at the Mos Eisley cantina.
  • Torture Technician: Gleefully orders the destruction of droids who fail to do their jobs. Unsurprisingly, she was sadistic towards droids before she was acquired by Jabba.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: For Jabba and his criminal empire. She assigns R2-D2 to serve drinks on Jabba's sail barge, which puts R2 in a position to begin Luke's plan.

    Attark 

Attark

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hoover_swc.jpg

Species: Hoover

Performed by: Swee Lim
Appearances: Return of the Jedi

An intelligent male Hoover, Attark was owned by Jabba and kept at his palace. Attark fixed weapons and machines for the Hutt, while stalking the halls at night to drink blood from the sleeping denizens of the palace.


  • All There in the Manual: Attark's origins come from a maquette created for Return of the Jedi; however, the creature is not visible in the film nor can its presence be recalled by several of the puppeteers from the set. He and his species debuted in 1998, as a card in the "Jabba's Palace Limited" expansion set of the Star Wars Customizable Card Game. He made his canon debut in Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: He is able to suck people's blood through his trunk.
  • Starfish Aliens: At first glance, he just looks like one of Jabba's bizarre house pets. He is actually an intelligent creature that works as a mechanic and preys on the Hutt's sleeping guests.
  • Vampiric Draining: He drinks people's blood while they are asleep for unknown reasons.

    Kada Jahr 

Kada Jahr

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kada_jahr_sw.png

Species: Devaronian

Appearances: Commander

A young female Devaronian mercenary that was hired by Jabba the Hutt as his head of security for being a liaison to smugglers and mercenaries, and being the progeny of the infamous late mercenary Arann Jahr. After the Battle of Yavin, Tusken Raiders stole contraband from Jabba under bribery by Nhego Roolan, forcing her to hire Saponza's Gang to get rid of Roolan.


    Sutha 

Sutha the Hutt

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sutha_sw_6.png

Species: Hutt

Appearances: Darth Vader | Doctor Aphra

A Hutt who did "odd jobs" for Jabba. He helped the Empire eliminate the leader of the Soo-tuul Pride, one of the Hutts' competitors. This started a rivalry between the Hutts and Yonak, the leader's son. Sutha was among the criminals who attempts to acquire the Rur crystal from Dr. Aphra at her auction.


  • Boom, Headshot!: After Aphra uses him as a Human Shield to escape the Imperials who crashed the auction, Sutha gets shot in the head after vowing vengeance against her.
  • Enemy Mine: Combines his bid for the Rur crystal with Yonak, but plans on betraying the Soo-tuul Pride should the Hutts' bid win.
  • Fell Off the Back of a Truck: When the Empire destroys the Soo-Tuul Pride's organization, they seize a fortune of credits, which Sutha tries to convince Darth Vader to misplace. Vader angrily points out that it is Imperial property, and destroying the Pride wasn't solely to benefit the Hutts. Also, Vader already is planning to have his ally Aphra hire bounty hunters to steal the fortune.

Jabba's Tatooine court

    Salacious B. Crumb 

Salacious B. Crumb

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/salacious_crumb_sw.png

Species: Kowakian monkey-lizard

Homeworld: Kowak

Performed by: Tim Rose
Voiced by: Mark Dodson
Appearances: Darth Vader | Marvel's Star Wars | Return of the Jedi

A Kowakian monkey-lizard owned by Jabba. He acts a jester within Jabba's court.


  • Annoying Laugh: Constantly lets out a particularly grating one. Darth Vader becomes particularly annoyed by it while meeting with Jabba.
    Darth Vader: If you value that creature's life, you should tell it to never again do that in my presence.
  • Character Death: He was aboard Jabba's sail barge when it exploded.
  • Court Jester: Word of God states that this is Crumb's position in Jabba's court.
  • Evil Laugh: In addition to being annoying, Crumb's laugh is usually reserved for whenever his master is doing something awful.
  • Eye Scream: During the battle at the Pit of Carkoon, Crumb gnaws out one of C-3P0's photoreceptors. R2-D2 zaps him away before he can gnaw out the other one.
  • The Hyena: He is constantly laughing at the misfortune of those who displease Jabba.
  • Schrödinger's Canon: He was originally a stowaway on Jabba's property. Crumb made Jabba laugh when he made a fool of his henchmen's efforts at killing him and the Hutt struck a deal with the creature: if he made Jabba laugh once every day, he would live in luxury. If he failed, Jabba would kill him. This backstory was eventually recanonized.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Kowakian monkey-lizards look like monkeys with very few fur, sharp bird-like claws and a beak and two long, pointy bat-like ears as well as a long, reptilian tail.

    Oola 

Oola

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/oola_sw.png

Species: Twi'lek

Homeworld: Ryloth

Portrayed by: Femi Taylor
Appearances: Return of the Jedi

A Twi'lek slave held by Jabba the Hutt.


  • Alien Hair: Her lekku.
  • Butt-Monkey: She spends most of her screentime being harassed by Jabba and forced to dance for him, and is fed to a rancor after defying him. Even worse, this was only days before Jabba is killed by the heroes of the film, meaning they could probably have freed her if she'd still been alive (in Legends, Luke Skywalker actually was intending to do so, but sadly she got on Jabba's bad side before the plan could be realized).
  • Censor Shadow: It is something of a small miracle that Oola's outfit made it into a movie rated PG, as the transparent fishnet allows her breasts to be plainly seen in proper lighting. However, Jabba's palace is dark enough where this is not immediately apparent in the scenes she is actually in; it's mostly notable in behind the scenes pictures.
  • Dancing Royalty: In Legends, Oola received no formal education, but dedicated her life to dancing. She attracted so many admirers, that's how was enslaved to Jabba in the first place. She danced so erotically, she accidentally caught Jabba's attention, and got herself killed.
  • Eaten Alive: By Jabba's rancor.
  • Fallen Princess: Expanded material mentions that her father was a chieftain on her homeworld of Ryloth.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: She is a green-skinned Twi'lek.
  • Go-Go Enslavement: She is chained to Jabba and forced to dance for his entertainment in a skimpy costume. When she tries to resist his advances, he simply sends her plummeting into the rancor pit.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She exists for this and foreshadows what Leia will be subjected to.
  • Oh, Crap!: She is utterly horrified when Jabba's rancor arrives to eat her.
  • Rubber-Forehead Aliens: As a Twi'lek, the only difference between her and a human are her lekku.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: She is killed quite early into Return of the Jedi to further demonstrate Jabba's cruelty, and to foreshadow what will happen to Leia (Made a Slave by Jabba for his own amusement) and Luke (nearly eaten by Jabba's pet rancor). She's given just enough characterization to make her quite sympathetic; she clearly hates being Jabba's slave and he kills her for refusing his advances; her death is also pretty horrific.
  • Scream Discretion Shot: We only hear Oola's screams as she is eaten alive.
  • Slave Collar: She wears a collar with a chain attached to it as part of her slavegirl costume.
  • Vapor Wear: She is wearing a costume that amounts to black fishnet. This is especially visible when she is struggling against her chains and has a Wardrobe Malfunction for a split second.

Yarna d'al' Gargan

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/595217d0_48bb_4e0b_8015_caf7d7073c88.jpeg

Species: Askajian

Homeworld: Askaji

Portrayed by: Claire Davenport
Appearances: Return of the Jedi

An Askajian slave held by Jabba the Hutt, often performing dances alongside Oola.


  • Bit Character: She's a background character in Return of the Jedi, though the expanded material gives her more characterization.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: After Jabba's death, she escaped from slavery and was reunited with her children.
  • Fallen Princess: She was the daughter of her tribe's chief before being enslaved.
  • Fan Disservice: She's a scantily-dressed dancing girl like Oola...but she's also obese with warts and garish make-up. According to expanded material, this actually has quite a sad backstory: Jabba forces her to put on weight and wear unflattering make-up to more closely resemble a Hutt, specifically his mother (make of that what you will).
  • Made a Slave: She and her family were captured by slavers and sold to Jabba many years ago.
  • Multiboobage: She's got six breasts.
  • Rubber-Forehead Aliens: She looks very similar to a human, save for some of her facial features and the Multiboobage.
  • Widow Woman: Expanded material reveals she had a husband named Nautag, who was enslaved alongside her. He was fed to Jabba's rancor after he tried to rebel against him.

    Max Rebo 

Max Rebo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/max_rebo_sw.png

Species: Ortolan

Homeworld: Orto

Portrayed by: Simon Williamson

Max Rebo was the Ortolan leader of the Max Rebo band, in which he played the red ball jett organ.


  • Armless Biped: As a result of a retcon to make the Ortolan species more in line with the original intent of the Max Rebo puppet, what appears to be arms are actually their legs, which they still use as arms. In Legends, Ortolans were usually depicted as humanoid (and most writers presumed Rebo's lower body was concealed by the organ).
  • Big Eater: All Ortolans are this. Jabba bribed Rebo with free meals in exchange for his band being a permanent attraction in Jabba's palace. To say that the rest of the band (who are neither Ortolan nor as food-motivated) was pissed with Rebo's decision would be an understatement.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: He can eat and drink through his toes, again, like all members of his species.
  • Butt-Monkey: Downplayed, but as of “From the Desert Comes a Stranger” he’s narrowly escaped two literally explosive battles on Tatooine; first was Luke Skywalker’s defeat of Jabba the Hutt, then the Pyke Syndicate’s bombing of the Sanctuary. The little guy keeps losing his gigs!
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: He's the responsible one to Azool Phantelle's foolish one, the latter of who swindled people for fun, regardless of how risky a target they were.
  • Identical Twin Mistake: He and his brother Azool look exactly alike aside from Azool wearing a black vest. This gets Rebo into trouble when Azool starts swindling people in Jabba's territory, with people mistaking him for his brother.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Just like in Legends, he and the rest of the band fled from Jabba's sail barge when the skirmish at the Pit of Carkoon erupted, saving them from certain doom. However, the band split up afterward.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: In “From the Desert Comes a Stranger”, he isn’t seen performing in the Sanctuary before it gets bombed. Apparently he had the night off, leaving the door open for future appearances.

    Sy Snootles 

Sy Snootles

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sy_snootles_sw.png

Species: Pa'lowick

Homeworld: Lowick

Performed by: Tim Rose, Mike Quinn
Voiced by: Nika Futterman (The Clone Wars), Annie Arbogast (Return of the Jedi)
Appearances: The Clone Wars | Return of the Jedi

"No one would suspect that a lovely creature such as myself could do a bounty hunter's work."

Sy Snootles, a long-limbed Pa'lowick, was a popular singer and dancer whose patrons included Jabba the Hutt. Very few realized that she also worked as a spy for the Hutt criminal cartels, and that she betrayed her love, Ziro the Hutt, in exchange for a big payday. She later worked in Jabba's Palace as the lead singer of the Max Rebo Band.


  • Ascended Extra: She was just a singer in Jabba's palace in Return of the Jedi, but received an expanded role in The Clone Wars episode "Hunt for Ziro".
  • Ambiguously Bi: One of her appearances in The Clone Wars features a cameo of her leaving a bar with a Twi'lek dancer in each arm telling them how much she loves them. Granted, she was also implied to be absolutely stinking drunk at the time. She says "I love you guys," something straight people of either gender say at the end of a wild night on the town; on the other hand they are coming out of what is clearly a strip club, because inside we see a poster of a Twi'lek poledancer and a patron actually getting a table dance from another dancer who at first we can't even tell is wearing anything. By the time she joined the Max Rebo Band, she was also really close friends with Greeata and refused to join the band if Rebo didn't hire her as well.
  • Fan Disservice: During her musical scenes, she's often paired alongside scantily-clad dancers of species most humans would find at least remotely attractive (usually as the main attraction), and Sy Snootles is a half-naked giraffe-frog creature with a lipstick-tipped proboscis. According to the writers of "Hunt for Ziro", she and Ziro the Hutt (not-so-attractive to humans either) were shown kissing precisely because none of the viewers would want to see that.
  • Hidden Depths: She's a Hutt spy. She even lampshades this when she says that nobody would expect a lounge singer to be an effective hunter.
  • Interspecies Romance: Formerly had a relationship with Ziro the Hutt, that ended when he sent her away from Coruscant.
  • Karma Houdini: So far, she has yet to receive any comeuppance for killing Ziro (not that he was a saint either).
  • Oh, Crap!: She has an "Uh oh!" reaction when she sees Jabba drop Oola in the rancor pit.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: To Ziro before shooting him:
    Sy: Next time you'll think twice about breaking someone's heart. Oh, wait, there won't be a next time.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: With Ziro. Subverted later on, when it's revealed that she was only playing the part after Ziro left her.
  • Woman Scorned: One reason she turned on Ziro was because of how abruptly he had ended their prior relationship and sent her away to Nal Hutta.
  • Writing by the Seat of Your Pants: In-Universe. Her lyrics for "Jedi Rocks" were improvised when Max Rebo mistook Jabba's advances on Oola as a request for another song, leading to a variation on the band's usual routine.

A male Yuzzum, Joh served as a co-singer in Jabba's court as part of the Max Rebo Band.


  • Large Ham: Joh loves to sing in a loud and over-the-top voice.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Many in Jabba's court hated Yowza's singing and dreamt about silencing the Yuzzum forever. The Hutt, however, appeared to like the Yuzzum singer, and Jabba's opinion was the only one that mattered in his palace.
  • The Unpronouncable: In the Legends canon, "Joh Yowza" is a stage name that Snootles gave him. His birth name? J'ywz'gnk Kchhllbrxcstk Et'nrmdndlcvtbrx.

  • Awesome Mc Coolname: He performs under the stage name of Droopy McCool.
  • Eyeless Face: Lacking eyes, Kitonaks look like anthropomorphic marsupial moles with porcine noses.
  • Humanoid Alien: Has the basic humanoid body shape but a distinctly alien appearance.
  • Signature Scent: Kitonaks produce a vanilla-like smell from their bodies and Snit was no exception.
  • The Unpronounceable: His true name was a series of whistles which could be pronounced only by his fellow Kitonaks.
  • Uncertain Doom: He was last seen performing with the other members of the band at Jabba's sail barge before it was destroyed. In Legends, he survived this, but his final fate in the current canon remains unknown.

A Twi'lek dancer and back-up singer, who performed with the Max Rebo Band in Jabba's palace.


  • Alien Hair: Like all Twi'leks, she has lekku in place of hair.
  • All There in the Manual: Her entry in the Star Wars Character Encyclopedia: Updated and Expanded gives us more information about her character and background.
  • Fanservice Extra: She's a scantily-clad back-up dancer, who was added to the 1997 re-release of Return of the Jedi.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: Well, light purple-skinned space babe.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Her role in the movie.
  • Slave Liberation: According to the Star Wars Character Encyclopedia, she was freed from slavery by Boba Fett and as a result she Hero Worships him.
  • Vapor Wear: She wears what basically amounts to strips of black cloth that leaves very little to the imagination. She almost makes Oola look modest in comparison.

    Rystáll Sant

Species: Half-human, half-Theelin

Portrayed by: Mercedes Ngoh (Return of the Jedi)
Appearances: Revenge of the Sith | Return of the Jedi (Special Edition)

A half-human, half-Theelin dancer and back-up singer who performed for Jabba the Hutt with the Max Rebo Band.


  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: She seems pretty pleased by Boba Fett's attention towards her.
  • All There in the Manual: The Star Wars Character Encyclopedia: Updated and Expanded fleshes out some of her biography, such as the fact she's from Coruscant.
  • The Cameo: She can be briefly seen attending the opera on Coruscant in Revenge of the Sith.
  • Connected All Along: The Star Wars Character Encyclopedia reveals she had met Lando Calrissian prior to Return of the Jedi, he having freed her from slavery.
  • Facial Markings: She has pink spots on her face (and the rest of her upper body), due to her half-Theelin heritage.
  • Fanservice Extra: In Return of the Jedi. Though her outfit's not nearly as skimpy as Oola's, she's still pretty attractive. Boba Fett certainly seems to think so, at any rate.
  • Form-Fitting Wardrobe: She wears a tight-fitting one-piece.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: She is half-human, half-Theelin.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Her role in the film.
  • Noodle Incident: Just how she went from living the high life on Coruscant, to being enslaved, then performing for crime lords in the Outer Rim has yet to be fully explained in Canon.
  • Oh, Crap!: She looks pretty shocked when poor Oola gets dumped in the rancor pit.
  • Pimped-Out Cape: She can be glimpsed wearing a fancy-looking cape at the opera in Revenge of the Sith.
  • Rubber-Forehead Aliens: The only things that distinguish her from a normal human are her hooved feet, pink markings and the horns on the side of her head (though this could be partly justified in that she actually is half-human).
  • Schrödinger's Canon:
    • In Legends, she was originally born on the Outer Rim planet of New Bornalex to a Theelin father and a human mother. Her impoverished mother was forced to abandon her as an infant and she was subsequently adopted by an Ortolan couple, who raised her on Coruscant.
    • She and her family were enslaved by the Black Sun shortly after the end of the Clone Wars; Lando Calrissian later won them in a game of sabacc and set them free, after which her parents put her into contact with Max Rebo to help kickstart her career.
  • Ship Tease: There's a brief scene of her being flirty with Boba Fett in Jabba's palace.
  • Slave Liberation: She was Made a Slave at some point, until she was freed by none other than Lando Calrissian.

A Rodian back-up singer and dancer for the Max Rebo Band.


  • Bare Your Midriff: Her outfit.
  • The Cameo: In Revenge of the Sith, she can be glimpsed attending a performance at the Galaxies Opera House on Coruscant.
  • Delinquent Hair: She has a prominent, bright yellow mohawk.
  • Fan Disservice: Downplayed. She wears a gold bikini top and a revealing skirt in Jabba's palace, but Rodians aren't exactly considered attractive by human standards, especially as she's accompanied by a human-Theelin hybrid and two Twi'leks. By Rodian standards though, she could well be Ms. Fanservice.
  • Humanoid Alien: As a Rodian, she has a humanoid body, but her head is reptilian and her skin is green and scaly.
  • Non-Mammal Mammaries: Though she more closely resembles a reptile than a mammal, she can still wear a bikini.
  • Oh, Crap!: She looks horrified when Jabba has Oola dropped into the rancor pit.

A half-human, half-Theelin slave owned by Jabba the Hutt before the rise of the Empire.


  • Bare Your Midriff: She wears a bikini top.
  • Beautiful Slave Girl: She's an attractive slave girl in a skimpy costume. In Legends, she was Born into Slavery under Ingoda the Hutt.
  • Bedlah Babe: Her outfit is reminiscent of this. In Legends, she was also a singer in Jabba's private band.
  • Fanservice Extra: She is briefly seen standing on Jabba's private balcony to watch the Boonta Eve Classic podrace.
  • Go-Go Enslavement: She appears to be wearing a variation of the metal bikini Leia is forced to wear decades later, although unlike Leia, she's wearing harem pants similar to another slave girl visible in Return of the Jedi, rather than a barely-there skirt.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: She is half-human, half-Theelin, although unlike other hybrids like Rystáll Sant, she looks mostly human (behind-the-scenes images show she has hooved feet, though in the film itself her feet aren't visible).
  • Schrödinger's Canon: Her name is All There in the Manual in Legends; it's unclear if this is still considered canon. Also in Legends, Shaliqua was originally owned by a business rival of Jabba's named Ingoda the Hutt, before being sold to Jabba to cover debts. A man who owned the Galaxies Opera House on Coruscant discovered her talent for singing at the Boonta Eve Classic and bought her freedom, offering to help nurture her talent and turn it into a proper career. Upon arriving on Coruscant, however, a distrusting Shaliqua fled and ended up making her own way as a singer in clubs in Coruscant's shadier districts. It's also hard to tell whether her appearance happened before or after Ki-Adi-Mundi visited Jabba, who had a different slave girl, in one Legends comic.

Homeworld: Nal Hutta

Voiced by: Corey Burton
Appearances: The Clone Wars

An elderly Hutt who was a member of the Grand Hutt Council.


  • Asshole Victim: Though his execution is brutal, he isn't a terribly sympathetic character, being a cowardly crime boss.
  • Captain Obvious: When asked by Maul where Jabba is, he can only reply "Jabba's Palace". Maul snarks at him for this blatantly obvious information, and then has Savage execute him for failing to be of use.
  • Character Death: He is executed by Savage Opress after being captured by Darth Maul and the Death Watch and they realize all he can tell them is that Jabba and the other Hutts are likely at Jabba's Palace.
  • Dirty Coward: He was awfully confident sitting behind his table while his guards and bounty hunters did all the dirty work, but as soon as Maul and Savage have him cornered, he sells out his own cohorts in a vain effort to save his own skin.
  • The Don: He runs a major Hutt crime syndicate.
  • Evil Old Folks: His databank bio notes that he is ancient, and he fits the "evil" part by virtue of being The Don.
  • Oh, Crap!: While being interrogated by Maul on where the other Hutts went, he is panicking the whole time, and screams in terror when Maul orders Savage to kill him.
  • Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: Sells out Jabba to save his own skin, but is executed by Maul anyway, as his only information was a little too on the nose to justify keeping him around.
    Maul: So the only thing you can tell me is that I will find Jabba... at Jabba's Palace?
  • The Syndicate: As part of the Grand Hutt Council, he helps direct the Hutt's criminal enterprises.

  • The Don: He runs a major Hutt crime syndicate.
  • Porn Stache: He doesn't have any real hair, but the skin splotches on his upper lips give a resemblance of Corleone's mustache.
  • Scatterbrained Senior: By the time of the War of the Bounty Hunters, Marlo is nearly a thousand years old and going senile. For example, he believes the Hutt Council is discussing Chancellor Lina Soh from the High Republic era during a meeting about the resurgence of Crimson Dawn.

Bokku

Species: Hutt

Appearances: Darth Vader (2020) | War of the Bounty Hunters

"In a galaxy of Emperors and wizards, there's no way for lowly souls like us to win this game. Unless we stand together."

A young and ambitious Hutt on the council with aspirations of challenging Jabba's rule over the clans.


  • Ambiguously Evil: His true allegiance being with Crimson Dawn with the stated goal of bringing down the Sith suggests he is a far more heroic figure than it first appeared..
  • Butt-Monkey: The moment that Vader and Ochi come into his life, Bokku is constantly being belittled and threatened by them and forced to embarrass himself in front of Jabba so that the rest of the Hutts will think him weak.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: He attempts to kill Vader through Orbital Bombardment. When that fails, Bokku attempts to pass it off as unintentional friendly fire, but Vader sees right through that and simply demands to know what Bokku learned. The Hutt drops the act and states that he knows Vader cannot be killed and submits to carrying out the Sith Lord's bidding. This was a ruse, as Bokku always planned on finding a way to kill Vader for Crimson Dawn.
  • The Mole: He is in league with Crimson Dawn and working with them against Jabba and the Empire.
  • Properly Paranoid: He is terrified of Darth Vader and knows that a Sith cannot be trusted at all and could undo all Bokku has worked for. The fact that Bokku is secretly working with Crimson Dawn also adds to the Hutt's worries, as Vader does swiftly learn of his secret allegiance and how to use it to his advantage.
  • Taking You with Me: Lures Vader aboard his flagship in a bid to kill the Sith Lord by activating its self-destruct. Unfortunately Vader survives by using the Force to build a protective shell around himself from debris.

Other Hutt crime lords

    Myarga 

Myarga the Hutt

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/myarga_sw.png

Species: Hutt

Myarga the Benevolent, also known as Myarga the Merciless, was a Hutt Cartel representative who was active during the High Republic era. She was responsible for setting up a trade deal with Kalo Sulman, the leader of the colonists on Sedri Minor, to protect the colony from Nihil marauders in exchange for shipments of their Vratixian barley harvest, a key ingredient in bacta.


  • Artificial Limbs: She has a prosthetic right arm.
  • Asshole Victim: She was captured by the Nihil sometime after the attack on Valo. When Keeve and Terec are undercover, Tempest Runner Zeetar tries to make Keeve bash her skull in with a hammer to get her to prove she's a Nihil. When Keeve tries to buy Myarga time by claiming she knows Jedi secrets, Zeetar opts to have her tortured via Deadly Gas and then Electric Torture, which is followed by Myarga ratting the Jedi out. Shortly after, she is shot dead by Lourna Dee. After trying to extort Sedri Minor and being willing to kill entire planetary populations of innocent people to defeat the Drengir, she got what was coming to her.
  • Boom, Headshot!: She is killed by Lourna Dee this way.
  • Evil Versus Oblivion: After Avar Kriss makes it clear that the Drengir are threatening all life in the Outer Rim, including in Hutt Space, she wastes little time agreeing to an alliance between the Hutts and Jedi to combat the Drengir.
  • Fantastic Racism: She doesn't think so highly of Trandoshans, calling them "worthless lizards", including the Jedi Sskeer, especially while he's still under the influence of the Drengir's Dark Side poison.
  • Frontline General: Unlike most Hutts, she actively participates in the same fights as her goons.
  • Large Ham: Her presentation is unusually theatrical for a Hutt (contrasting at least Hutts from later eras), disembarking from her ship with an escort of Gamorrean guards riding armored rancors. After she gets freed from Sskeer's grasp, she proclaims that no Jedi will be spared from her wrath in bombastic fashion, only to get curb-stomped by Avar, lampshading that "This isn't a holodrama".
  • Skeletons in the Coat Closet: Part of her attire includes a necklace decorated in the skulls of several species.
  • Token Evil Teammate: While she is willing to side with the Jedi to fight the Drengir, she isn't above suggesting population-killing superweapons to defeat them against the Jedi's wishes, and not just out of mere pragmatism towards a galactic-scale threat.

    Renza 

Renza the Hutt

Species: Hutt

Appearances: Tempest Runner

A Hutt active since the High Republic era.


  • Chekhov's Gunman: Prior to her flashback appearance in Tempest Runner, she was mentioned in Dooku Jedi Lost, Tales from Vader's Castle of Star Wars Adventures, and "Fake It Till You Make It" in From a Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back, all written by Cavan Scott.
  • The Dreaded: Lina compares her to Korda and Tarkin, and considers her the worst of the three.
  • Noodle Incident: At some point between Adventures in Wild Space and the Adventures: Tales from Vader's Castle event, Renza was an adversary to Lina.
  • Would Hurt a Child:
    • In a flashback in Dooku: Jedi Lost, a group of criminals attempted to kidnap Dooku's siblings Jenza and Ramil (all three were children at the time) and planned to sell them to Renza, and one says that the Hutt would like her child slaves with "more meat on the bones".
    • Going by the timeline, Lina would've encountered Renza when she was a child or a teenager.

    Ziro the Hutt 

Ziro Desilijic Tiure

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ziro_sw.png

Species: Hutt

Homeworld: Sleheyron

Voiced by: Corey Burton
Appearances: The Clone Wars

"Oh, you can't imagine the unspeakable things I've suffered! The horror!"

Jabba the Hutt's Uncle Ziro conspired with Count Dooku to kidnap Jabba's son Rotta, reasoning that when the Jedi sent to retrieve Rotta died, the Republic would be forced to apprehend Jabba, leading to Ziro gaining control of their clan. When the conspiracy unraveled, Ziro was imprisoned on Coruscant. Cad Bane freed him and turned him over to the Hutt Council, who feared that Ziro might tell the Republic of their many dirty dealings. Ziro escaped the Hutts, but could not outrun his past.


  • Arc Villain: One of the main villains of the movie, and returns as the secondary antagonist (behind Cad Bane) of his titular arc in the series.
  • Asshole Victim: With the possible exception of his mother, nobody really liked Ziro enough to care about his death at Sy Snootle's hands. Not even Obi-Wan Kenobi cares enough to look into his death any further, in favor of trying to capture Cad Bane instead.
  • Bad Boss: When one of his most "trusted" assassin droids failed a mission, he was outright glad, that he finally had a reason to have it dismantled.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: He entered into an alliance with Dooku solely to gain hold of Jabba's territories and with it, control over the Hutt Council. However, he ends up kriffing the whole thing.
  • Blatant Lies: When Mama asks him what he's been doing all the years he didn't call, Ziro claims he was doing things on and off solely for the betterment of his fellow Hutts.
  • Butt-Monkey: Of all the Hutts introduced in the Star Wars villain, Ziro is probably the least competent and threatening of all of them. Most of his appearances have him whining about his own problems and trying to kill him.
  • Camp Straight: Despite his effeminate speech-pattern, easily-induced fits of hysteria, and colorful appearance, he's straight as revealed in "Hunt for Ziro".
  • Complaining About Rescues They Don't Like: A minor example; during his escape from prison, he complained right after being released because it was too bright out and would've preferred the breakout to have occurred at night.
  • Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: His voice was based on Truman Capote's.
  • Death by Woman Scorned: He is shot to death by Sy Snootles, of all people.
  • Drama Crime Lord: Just listen to how he describes life in prison to Cad Bane...
  • Dirty Coward: Best exemplified in the pilot movie: Ziro takes great pride in his involvement in kidnapping his nephew's son to Count Dooku, Padme Amidala and in private, but becomes utterly terrified and blames Dooku for what happened when he's forced to admit to his actions to Jabba.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: He said he couldn't bring himself to tell Mama the Hutt that his father had run away and died because he didn't want her to be miserable.
  • Evil Laugh: He has probably the hammiest laughter in The Clone Wars. Lampshaded by Ahsoka, who heard it in a vision of hers in "Assassin":
    Ahsoka: ... I hear laughter... Bizarre laughter...
  • Evil Uncle: He tried to have his nephew Jabba and Jabba's son Rotta murdered, so he could take over Jabba's "businesses" and position.
  • Fat Bastard: Typical for a Hutt. However, he takes the cake when he plots to have his great-nephew kidnapped and killed in order to rise in the Hutt ranks.
  • Homage: His voice, appearance, and mannerism are a homage to Truman Capote.
  • Hated by All: As an egotistical and smug Dirty Coward who's also completely incompetent as a crime lord, Ziro is loathed by just about everyone, even his fellow Hutts. The only reason the family elects keep him alive at all after his attempt to kidnap Jabba's son is due to him sitting on and threatening to leak sensitive information that could incriminate all of them. Even then, Jabba manages to hire and use Sy Snootles to kill and take the information on his behalf, and is very pleased with the end result.
  • Hot Skitty-on-Wailord Action: Granted, he's small for a Hutt, but Sy is still considerably smaller than he is.
  • Interspecies Romance: At some point, he (Hutt) had a relationship with Sy Snootles (Pa'lowick).
  • Large Ham: Being based on the Camp Gay Truman Capote, this aspect of his character was inevitable.
  • Shout-Out: As he dies, he mutters "Oh, what a world..."
  • Never My Fault: He actually blames Jabba for sending Sy Snootles away from Coruscant. She ends up killing him anyway, so it obviously didn't work.
  • Simpleton Voice: He speaks basic and has the accent of a Southern hillbilly.
  • Sissy Villain: He isn't a very tough individual, even when ordering his lackeys around.
  • Smug Snake: He certainly has a very bloated opinion of himself, but in the end, his ego eclipses his competence.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: He has green eyes and purple skin like his mother, Mama the Hutt and they seem to share a habit of touching their chin very similarly while thinking. They're also the only known Hutts in the Canon to use Basic instead of Huttese as their primary form of communication.
  • Tattooed Crook: He has several tattoos all across his body.
  • The Un-Favourite: Mama the Hutt made some rather derogatory remarks about him when he visited her, including how she wouldn't have had to tell his brother Ebor to pass her the food. Subverted somewhat in that she does care for him, as she allows him to borrow her starship when she learns that Gardulla is after him, and reveals his location to the Jedi in order to protect him from Cad Bane.
  • You Are Fat: After freeing him from prison, Bane dryly notes that prison doesn’t seem to have had that much of an effect on him. Ziro being Ziro, doesn’t recognize the insult and whines dramatically about the horrors of incarceration.

    Mama 

Mama the Hutt

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mama_the_hutt.png

Species: Hutt

Voiced by: Angelique Perrin
Appearances: The Clone Wars

"Should have figured, after all these years of never callin', you'd show up at dinner time."

Mother of Ziro, grandmother of Jabba, and great-grandmother of Rotta, Mama resided in a hut, deep within the swamps of Nal Hutta.


  • Butt-Monkey: She didn't have a good day in "Hunt for Ziro". First, Ziro shows up to her place in dinner time "after years of never calling", swaps his swamp speeder (which couldn't possibly support Mama's bulk) to her starship, which he promises to return. Then, Cad Bane barges in and threatens her to give up the skinny on where Ziro headed, then two Jedi show-up, one of them breaks down her door, and they leave without fixing it; and to top it off, Ziro is killed, meaning she'll never get her starship back.
  • Cryptic Background Reference: Ziro mentions that Gardulla would never show up to Mama's place.
  • Gonk: Even by Hutt standards, she's incredibly ugly.
  • Heavy Voice: Although she's already morbidly obese by her first (and only) appearance, her ridiculously deep voice that makes Darth Vader sound like Michael Jackson in comparison can only be attributed to this trope.
  • Jabba Table Manners: She's so horribly overweight that she can't even eat by herself, requiring droids to lift the food to her mouth, which she then grabs by her tongue.
  • Large and in Charge: She is by far the largest Hutt seen in the Canon and comments made by Ziro indicate that the other Hutts are afraid to cross her.
  • No Name Given: No one mentions her by name in the Canon, and the official Encyclopedia, and the episode guide of "Hunt for Ziro" refers to her only as "Mama" or "Mama the Hutt".
  • Shout-Out: She was partly inspired by the character Pearl, a massively obese Vampire from the 1998 film, Blade.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Ziro inherited his green eyes and purple skin from her and they seem to share a habbit of touching their chin very similarly while thinking. They're also the only known Hutts to use Basic, instead of Huttese as their primary form of communication.

    Grakkus Jahibakti Tingi 

Grakkus Jahibakti Tingi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/grakkus.png

Species: Hutt

A Hutt crime lord on Nar Shaddaa, the "Smugglers' Moon", who collected ancient Jedi artifacts and staged elaborate gladiatorial battles from his fortress in Hutta Town. He was eventually imprisoned in Megalox, becoming one of the criminal rulers of the city prison.


  • Acrofatic: Downplayed. Grakkus was more muscular than fat in his prime, but he was still bulky enough to be barely mobile on his own. He was augmented with cybernetic spider legs to help him move faster.
  • Aliens Speaking English: Unlike most other Hutts, who are always shown speaking subtitled or translated Huttese, Grakkus speaks Basic in his dealings with others, like Ziro and Mama.
  • All There in the Manual: His full name is provided in the Smuggler's Guide.
  • Arc Villain: He is the primary antagonist of "Showdown on the Smugglers' Moon", the second arc of the Star Wars comic series.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Unlike most Hutts, Grakkus is strong, muscular, and more than able to hold his own in a fight.
  • Badass in Distress: After being defeated by Kreel, Grakkus is arrested by the Empire and his collection is seized by Darth Vader.
  • Butt-Monkey: All three of non-cameo his appearances have so far ended in pain and humiliation for him. His attempt to collect Luke as the crown of his collection of Jedi artifacts ends with him under arrest and his collection seized by the Empire. His attempt to double-cross Han Solo ends with him still a captive, and now outfitted with a device tuned to subject him to electric shocks at Han's whim. His attempt to use Terex and Poe Dameron to escape jail ends with him still in jail, but now minus the force field that protected said jail from the planet's crushing gravity.
  • Collector of the Strange: Has a large collection of Jedi artifacts including lightsabers and holocrons.
  • Cyborg: Has several artificial spider-like legs, allowing him to move faster than normal Hutts.
  • Fat Bastard: Averted for a Hutt, he is instead pretty muscular. Played straight later as he has lost quite a bit of muscle while in prison for several decades.
  • Playing Both Sides: Manipulates both the Resistance and First Order into breaking him out of Megalox by offering information on Lor San Tekka to whoever frees him.
  • Stout Strength: While in better physical shape than other Hutts in his prime, Grakkus still had some bulk on him. He's also strong enough to lift a full-grown humanoid adult off the ground with one hand.
  • Too Dumb to Live: He wears a necklace of Jedi lightsabers around his neck, which he forgets about when he does a Neck Lift to a traitorous minion.

The Twins

Species: Hutt

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hutttwins_tbobfposter.png

A brother-sister pair of Hutts who challenge Boba Fett for their cousin Jabba's old throne.


  • Bad People Abuse Animals: The brother Hutt uses a live rat-like creature to mop his sweat.
  • Brother–Sister Team: They are brother and sister.
  • Decoy Antagonist: They certainly have enough clout to be feared by the people of Tatooine, even carried on a litter. But once they realize the Pyke Syndicate is involved, they decide Tatooine is not worth the trouble and leave, allowing the Pykes to take center stage as the true villains of the story.
  • Pet the Dog: After a failed assassination attempt on Boba's life and learning that the Mos Espa mayor double-crossed them for the Pyke Syndicate, the Twins decide to give him a gift as an "apology" for their behavior. This gift is a rancor calf, which Boba takes a great liking to.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: They're eager to get Tatooine as part of an inheritance claim after Jabba's death, but they're not willing to spill blood over it, seeing it as bad business.
  • Red Herring: They're introduced as the potential main obstacle to Boba's rising criminal empire. One episode later, they decide to cut their losses and leave Tatooine instead, removing themselves from the upcoming gang war.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: They both decide getting involved in a gang war over Tatooine isn't worth it after Krrsantan's assassination attempt on Boba fails.
  • Too Important to Walk: Like most of Tatooine's elite, they are carried on a litter. Their servants are clearly straining under the weight of carrying two fully-grown Hutts on one litter.
  • You Have Failed Me: Seeing Krrsantan under Boba's captivity after the failed assassination attempt, the Twins tell Boba that he could keep him or even sell him to the gladiator pits. They're not willing to accept failed bounty hunters back into their payroll, especially if they have to give up all claims on Tatooine.
