Between 4000 BBY and the millennia before the Imperial Era, the Gungan Boss Gallo formed a massive army amidst a war between the Gungan tribes on the planet Naboo. Gallo used the army along with diplomatic measures to resolve the war, eventually using it to destroy the city Spearhead, home to the rogue Boss Rogoe and the remaining Gungan holdouts. Gallo built the new Gungan capital of Otoh Gunga above the ruins of Spearhead.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Gallo's army was mentioned in the current Star Wars canon in Nexus of Power, a 2016 sourcebook published by Fantasy Flight Games for the Star Wars: Force and Destiny roleplaying game.[1] In the Star Wars Legends continuity, Gallo's forces were first mentioned in Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds: Prima's Official Strategy Guide by Steven L. Kent,[2] released on November 7, 2001.[3]

The army then appeared in the LucasArts video game Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds,[4] released on November 11 of the same year,[5] which identified it as an early version of the Gungan Grand Army.[4] That army had been created for the prequel trilogy film Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace,[6] released on May 19, 1999,[7] although it first appeared in the film's novelization by Terry Brooks,[8] released on April 21, 1999.[9] Gallo's army has not been linked to the Gungan Grand Army in the current canon.
