"Why would he think of you, Ochi…when the Droid Crush Pirates of Bestoon are doing all the work?"
―The droid pirate captain, to Ochi[1]

The Droid Crush Pirates of Bestoon were droid pirates associated with Bestoon and led by a droid captain and were known to be recruited by the Jedi hunter Ochi of Bestoon.


The Droid Crush Pirates were tasked by the Sith assassin Ochi of Bestoon in hunting the Sith Lord Darth Vader on Mustafar, having been promised with the high-quality technology within Vader's armor. After retrieving his lightsaber, Vader destroyed the captain and the rest of the droids present.[1] The captain was later repaired and again attacked Vader with more droids.[3]

  2. The events of Darth Vader (2020) 9 take place shortly after the events of Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of The Empire Strikes Back to the year 3 ABY, meaning that the events of Darth Vader 9, including the destruction of numerous droids of the Droid Crush Pirates of Bestoon, must take place around that year.
