Electrocrops were a type of two-pronged riding crop[1] that emitted an electrical shock when used. The jockey Arca Yroca used a red electrocrop while riding on the fathier Hoth Stuff on the Canto Bight racetrack on the planet Cantonica[2] in 34 ABY.[3] He applied the shock to the fathier's flank, causing the creature to speed up while letting out a cry of pain. That act of cruelty was witnessed by Resistance agents Rose Tico and Finn.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

An electrocrop first appeared in the 2017 sequel trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi[2] and was first identified in the accompanying reference book Star Wars: The Last Jedi: The Visual Dictionary, which was written by Pablo Hidalgo.[1] The novelization of the film written by Jason Fry[4] and the junior novel written by Michael Kogge[5] both incorrectly described Yroca as using an electro-whip to strike his fathier rather than an electrocrop.[4][5]
