- "Let's go. The boss wants this done."
- ―A B1 battle droid, referring to Wat Tambor
Boss was the title given to the leader of the Gungan community. Rugor Nass was Boss during the Invasion of Naboo. During the Clone Wars, he was succeeded by Lyonie. The Boss had the power to send the Gungan Grand Army to war or to banish trouble-making citizens.
The title existed outside of Gungan society as well, often denoting a leader, particularly in some business-related or criminal capacity. During the waning years of the Galactic Republic, Xev Xrexus was known as the Boss-Mistress of the Xrexus Cartel. Separatist Councillor Wat Tambor was referred to by the title during the Battle of Ryloth by a B1-series battle droid.
