Limbs were major appendages on organic bodies, and could also be found on the mechanical bodies of droids. Major limbs included legs, arms, hands, feet, and in some cases, wings or tentacles.

Limbs were often fragile and could be lost, such as after being struck with a lightsaber; Darth Vader lost all of his limbs due to the[2] First Battle of Geonosis[3] and the Duel on Mustafar, resulting in cybernetic replacements.[2] Trandoshans were able to regrow their limbs if they were severed.[4]

In some cultures in the the galaxy, people were punished for theft by having a hand amputated.[5]
