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.

Jabba the Hutt

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jabba_the_hutt_sw_2166.jpg
"Han, my boy, you disappoint me."

Species: Hutt

Homeworld: Tatooine

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)
Appearances: The Phantom Menace | The Clone Wars | From a Certain Point of View | A New Hopenote  | Marvel's Star Wars | Darth Vader | Adventures | Age of Rebellion | 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.


  • Adaptation Species Change: He was originally conceived of as a human, or at least a humanoid alien, before a design of a giant slug was chosen.
  • Adipose Rex: Though he's a fat crime lord instead of a fat king.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Asshole Victim: Let's just say Jabba had it coming.
  • Ax-Crazy: It's downplayed, but Jabba is very open to the idea of senseless violence, and frequently kills or tries to kill people over petty excuses or just For the Evulz. His favored method is to have people eaten alive by the various monsters he controls.
  • Bad Boss: He harshly punishes anybody who fails him, often by feeding them alive to whatever monstrous pet he currently keeps.
  • 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.
  • 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.
    • He 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.
    • He 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.
    • 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.
  • The Cameo: He appears as the host of the podrace in The Phantom Menace, but sleeps through most of it.
  • The Chessmaster: He 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 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 600 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.
  • The Don: He runs one of the most powerful criminal syndicates in the galaxy.
  • 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: He kills Oola the dancing girl mostly for his own amusement.
  • 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.
  • Foreshadowing: In hindsight. He was once force-choked by Darth Vader and strangled to death years afterward by his daughter.
  • 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.
  • 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/Mars Needs Women: 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).
  • 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."
  • 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.
  • The Hedonist: When it comes down to it, Jabba just loves a good time with plentiful food, women, and entertainment.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: In Return of the Jedi.
  • No-Sell: He laughs off Luke's attempt to mindtrick him in Return of the Jedi, as Hutts as a species are naturally immune.
  • 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: Aside from his concerns for Rotta and helping Chairman Papanoida find his daughters, he decided 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.
  • 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.
  • Reality Ensues: At the beginning of Son of Dathomir, it's revealed that he and the Hutt Clan separated from the Shadow Collective just 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.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He's 600 years old, people.
  • Right-Hand Attack Dog: Jabba keeps a Rancor in his palace dungeon to execute anyone who threatens the Hutt.
  • Slouch of Villainy: Justified due to being a huge slug.
  • 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.
  • 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 Alien: Hutts are large slug-like creatures with toad-like heads.
  • Tattooed Crook: He's a criminal leader with his clan tattoo etched into his right forearm.
  • 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 a little more seriously. Especially after Luke uttered the words "this is your last chance. Free us, or die."
  • Villain Ball: He tried to have some of the most influential Rebel leaders executed, including a Jedi. Yeah.
  • 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.
  • 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_4896.jpg

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 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 Clone Wars 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 Hutlett.
  • 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). It is implied in Life Debt that he may be the baby Hutt that Malikili is given to take care of.

    Gardulla Besadii the Elder 

Gardulla the Hutt

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gardulla_the_hutt_sw_3887.png

Species: Hutt

Homeworld: Nal Hutta

Voiced by: Nika Futterman

A Hutt crime lord who serves as Jabba's representative on the Grand Hutt Council. Gardulla is the former owner of Shimi 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.
  • 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 The Clone Wars and is not present in any of their later appearances.

     Bib Fortuna 

Bib Fortuna

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bib_fortuna_sw_8886.jpg

Species: Twi'lek

Homeworld: Ryloth

Portrayed by: Matthew Wood (The Phantom Menace), Michael Carter (Return of the Jedi)
Voiced by: Erik Bauersfield (Return of the Jedi)
Appearances: The Phantom Menace | From a Certain Point of View | Commander | Darth Vader | Return of the Jedi

"Bargain rather than fight? He's no Jedi."

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


  • Adaptational Personality Change: He seems to be completely loyal to Jabba in the Canon. His Legends counterpart was The Starscream to Jabba, having made multiple unsuccessful assassination attempts on the Hutt.
  • Alien Hair: His lekku.
  • 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: He was last seen alive aboard Jabba's sail barge. The canonical Star Wars databank entry states he died when the barge exploded instead of escaping as he did in the Legends continuity. Then again, considering what eventually becomes of him there, being perhaps the epitome of And I Must Scream, Fortuna ultimately ended up getting away from what can easily be argued a Fate Worse than Death.
  • The Dragon: As Jabba's major-domo, he runs his Jabba's day-to-day business, vets those seeking an audience with him, and offers advice and information.
  • Evil Albino: Twi'leks come in a variety of colors, so it makes sense that some of them would be albinos.
  • 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.
  • Rubber-Forehead Alien: He's 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.
  • Weak-Willed: Luke 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.png

Species: Chevin

Appearances: Return of the Jedi

A male Chevin, Mon is 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Villainous Friendship: With Jabba.

    Malakili 

Malakili

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/malakili_sw_1611.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.

    Tessek 

Tessek

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

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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ev9d9_sw_9989.png
You're a feisty little one. But you'll soon learn some respect.

Voiced by: Richard Marquand
Appearances: Return of the Jedi

"Ah, good. New acquisitions."

A sadistic droid who oversees Jabba's droid pool.


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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

Species: Hoover

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

Performed by: Swee Lim
Appearances: Return of the Jedi

A intelligent male Hoover, Attark is owned by Jabba and kept at his palace. Attark fixes 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.jpg

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.png

Species: Hutt

Appearances: Darth Vader | Doctor Aphra

A Hutt who does "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.

    Salacious B. Crumb 

Salacious B. Crumb

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/372e5f0eed2cc6ad2605dc992a12056e.jpg

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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The Hyena: He is constantly laughing at the misfortune of those who displease Jabba.
  • The Jester: Word of God states that this is Crumb's position in Jabba's court.

    Oola 

Oola

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/oola_sw_2811.jpg

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.
  • Beautiful Slave Girl: Formerly provided the trope image. She is chained to Jabba and forced to dance for his entertainment. When she tries to resist his advances, he simply sends her plummeting into the rancor pit.
  • 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 apparently 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).
  • 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: Her skimpy slavegirl costume.
  • 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 Alien: 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 

Yarna d'al' Gargan

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 Alien: 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.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.
  • 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.
  • Inexplicably Identical Individuals: 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!: 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.

    Sy Snootles 

Sy Snootles

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9f232fa00d34fc7fa311a7a8a2cb8a0f.jpg

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.
  • Sickening 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.

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

Appearances: Return of the Jedi

A male Yuzzum, Joh serves 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.

Appearances: Return of the Jedi

A Twi'lek dancer and back-up singer, who performs 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 

Rystáll Sant

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

Species: Half-human, half-Theelin

Homeworld: Coruscant

Portrayed by: Mercedes Ngoh (Return of the Jedi)

A half-human, half-Theelin dancer and back-up singer who performs 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.
  • 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 Alien: 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).
  • Ship Tease: There's a brief scene of her being flirty with Boba Fett in Jabba's palace.
  • 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.
  • Slave Liberation: She was Made a Slave at some point, until she was freed by none other than Lando Calrissian.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is a very bright crimson.

     Greeata Jendowanian 

Greeata Jendowanian

Species: Rodian

Homeworld: Rodia

Portrayed by: Celia Fushille-Burke (Return of the Jedi)

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.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Looking closely, the back of her mohawk actually reaches her knees.

     Diva Shaliqua 

Diva Shaliqua

Species: Half-human, half-Theelin

Portrayed by: ???
Appearances: The Phantom Menace
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.
  • 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 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.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: A literal example.

  • The Don: He runs a major Hutt crime syndicate.
  • Fat Bastard: As typical for a Hutt, since he is a criminal and a slaver.

Ziro the Hutt

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.


  • 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.
  • Camp Straight: Despite his effeminite 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...
  • 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:
    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.
  • Famous Last Words: His final words as he dies after being being blasted to death by Sy Snootles are, "Oh, what a world!".
  • Homage: His voice, appearance, and mannerism are a homage to Truman Capote.
  • 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..."
  • 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 habbit 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 Unfavorite: 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.

    Mama 

Mama the Hutt

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mama_the_hutt_sw_1833.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 resides 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) appearence, 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, 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_the_hutt_sw.jpg

Species: Hutt

Appearances: Darth Maul | Marvel's Star Wars | Poe Dameron

A Hutt crime lord on Nar Shaddaa, the "Smugglers' Moon", who collects ancient Jedi artifacts and stages elaborate gladiatorial battles from his fortress in Hutta Town. He is 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.
  • 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.
  • Hollywood Cyborg: Has several artificial spider-like legs, allowing him to move faster than normal Hutts.
  • 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.
