So a lot of content on this channel are either memes or movie related material, nothing really from the EU (old or new) so I've decided to post some of the weirder stdid I've found from browsing Wookiepidea and the Wizards DnD suppulments.
"The Geonosian hydras were huge carnivorous insectoid creatures with three heads, though some hydras could have more than three—which would not be considered a mutation. Hydras were amphibious and lived beneath the few seas on Geonosis, like the Ebon Sea. As a result, it is presumed the species was rare on Geonosis.
Geonosian hydras preyed upon less defended Geonosian hives. They were sometimes used as the main event in Geonosian gladiatorial fights, where they would be pitted against a large number of armed gladiators."
Look at this freaking monstrosity. A gigantic, three-headed Praying Mantis Dragon. So far its only major entrie has been in the "Ultimate Advisaries" sourcebook, how the hell has this thing not been utilized more?
"The droidbreaker, formerly known as the swamphulk, was a creature native to Belgaroth. Its native planet consumed by pollution and scrapyards, the droidbreaker evolved in a single generation to survive and fit its new surroundings. With a steady diet of plasteel and different forms of refined metal, the droidbreaker became a hulking figure that skulked the many scrapyards that covered the planet. A droidbreaker steak could be made from droidbreaker meat and was high in iron content due to the droidbreaker's diet."
First apperance is "Courscant and the Core Worlds" sourcbook with a minor apperance in the "A Trooper's Tale" comic where it killed some clomes. I can't help but feel these aren't being used to their full potential. I mean you got it in a Clone Wars book, fighting CLONES. It's name is literally Droidbreaker, why don't we have It, oh I don't know BREAKING DROIDS!
Yeah, it couldn't turn the tide lore wise, but tellme seeing Clones riding an armada of these things literally chewing through CIS lines doesn't sound badass.
"Frozians were sentient Humanoid mammals. These bipedal beings had an extra joint in each limb that, to Human eyes, looked like a breach in a bone. Frozians had a well-deserved reputation for probity, honesty and diligence. They were proud hard-workers and respected the letter of a promise to death, even if the other party had already betrayed it.
The Moff, or Imperial sectoral Governor, of the Corellian sector, ordered to attack Froz with a devastating orbital bombing to make an example for other systems and to discourage insurrection.
Through a series of raids, Star Destroyers annihilated almost all the life on the planet's surface."
"A scientific discovery made soon afterward showed that Frozians were sterile without Froz's flora and gravity conditions. The Galactic Empire was fragmented in 4 ABY and a number of Frozians joined the New Republic, but the generation of Frozians seeing their victory would be the last one ever, with estimations giving the species only a century of life. A number of Frozian scientists began a desperate, against-the-clock research to re-create the environment of Froz before that."
Is it just me or does the standard imperial plan of 'bomb the planet to ruin' never work?
The Caamasi are preaching out against us, BOMB THE PLANET!!
*Caamasi gain the entire galaxy's sympathy and insues an outrage*
Alderaan speaks out against us, DESTROY THE PLANET!!
*Planet becomes the DeFacto symbol of Rebellion and all out war ensues*
The Frozians speak out against us, BOMB THE PLANET!!
*Entire species is rendered sterile and with nothing to loose join the rebellion*
Just stop man it's not going to work, it's never going to work.
Btw the last two images are the revised design, wanna know what they first looked like?
There's your nightmare fuel people, an **
ENTIRE PLANET** of anorexic Nigle Thornberries.
See this is why even hardcore SW fans like retcons people.
"The Sljee were nonhumanoid sentients indigenous to the planet Sljee. They had low, slab-shaped bodies, with multiple legs, tentacles, and six jointed antennae with bulbs on the end. These antennae, called olfactory stalks, were their primary sense organs. Their unusual appearance led some non-Sjlee to mistake them for exotic animals, or even some sort of motile plants.
Sljee were olfaxes, beings who sensed their surroundings and communicated primarily through scent. The Sljee even developed technological devices for scent-based communication. Though their senses of touch and hearing were comparable to Humans, they were completely blind."
I love these ridiculous things, a living fungus table, gotta love the wakky side of the universe.
T'landa Til were from the planet Varl, home of the Hutt species. The t'landa Til also lived in Nal Hutta, the adopted homeworld of the Hutts. They were also immune to Force mind tricks. Despite being related to the Hutts, the t'landa Til were not as wealthy and powerful as their cousins. Besadii crime lord Aruk the Hutt used a number of t'landa Til as false priests in religious colonies on Ylesia, where "Pilgrims" were lured with the promise of the "Exultation" after days of harsh labor in spice factories.
So yeah, Jabba's distant cousin was a Rino, go figure.
"The Koboks were sentient insectoids native to the planet Koboth. Strong and nimble despite a skeleton-like frame, a Kobok was a formidable opponent in combat due to spikes that projected from each limb; the natural weapons delivered a potent venom capable of knocking out Human-sized targets for several hours. Each member of the species possessed three eyes, two at the front of the head and one at the back, which provided a 360-degree field of vision. The fuzzy carapace that covered the face was mutable and allowed a Kobok to convey expressions with the mouth and eyes.
The elite of the Kobok military was known as the Kobothi S-Corps, a body that had been created less than a decade before the Battle of Yavin. The S-Corps were charged with the duty of protecting Kobothi space and interests. The organization used its own "code" languages, known only to members of the unit. The species had access to standard galactic technology, although some Koboks modified their starships to take advantage of their 360-degree field of vision; for example, a Kobok might place radar screens directly behind the pilot. The species spread to the surrounding systems and engaged in trade with their galactic neighbors, such as the Trianii and the Hiitian species. They also came into frequent conflict with the power-hungry Corporate Alliance, as their territories bordered one another."
Another favorite minor species of mine, you can tell how good he is by the number of belts he has strapped on for no reason.
Those of you old enough to remember might recognise them from the old Droids cartoon.
Original design from cartoon, just goes to show with a good enough redesign you can make anything look good.
"A hive-minded species, all Bartokk shared a telepathic link to each other, sharing intelligence and thoughts within 500 meters of each other. This ability not only gave them sentience, as outside the hive mind they were barely functional, the telepathic link served as a good defense from being flanked by predators. The Bartokk possessed amazing regenerative abilities and could recover from almost any injury, so long as their brains were not completely destroyed. If their brain was cut in half each half would regenerate into a separate twin, creating an entirely new individual. Their bodies also had the ability to have parts that have been cut off in combat to continue functioning as normal. Even in the instance of decapitation, the body would continue to fight despite the lack of a head."
A race of endless assassins with a linked Hive Mind, why they hell aren't they used more?!
So that's all I got for now, let me know in the comments if y'all would like more.
