"You are a Mandalorian! Your ancestors rode the great Mythosaur."
―Kuiil scolds the Mandalorian[src]

Mythosaurs were creatures of gigantic proportions[1] that were allegedly tamed[2] and ridden[3] by ancient Mandalorians.[2] In 9 ABY,[4] the Ugnaught Kuiil[5] was training the Mandalorian bounty hunter Din Djarin to ride blurrgs on[3] the planet Arvala-7[5] and scolded him when he tried to give up, reminding him of the fact that his ancestors rode mythosaurs and that blurrgs were easier to ride.[3] Its skull was one of the traditional symbols of Mandalorian iconography,[6] and some Mandalorian armor bore the distinctive symbol.[7] A mythosaur skull hung from one of the walls in Dok-Ondar's Den of Antiquities in Black Spire Outpost, Batuu.[8]

Behind the scenes[]

Mythosaurs were first identified in the current Star Wars canon in the thirty-second issue of the magazine Star Wars: Build the Millennium Falcon.[1] The species originates in the Star Wars Legends continuity, where they were created for the 1982 comic book Star Wars (1977) 69, which was written by David Michelinie.[9]

  4. StarWars.com SWCC 2019: 9 Things We Learned from The Mandalorian Panel on StarWars.com (backup link) establishes that The Mandalorian is set about five years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 4 ABY. Furthermore, SWInsider.png "A Certain Point of View"—Star Wars Insider 202 dates the skirmish on Nevarro and the second rescue of Grogu—which are depicted in the The Mandalorian episodes "Chapter 7: The Reckoning" and "Chapter 16: The Rescue," respectively—to "9 ASW4," or nine years after the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. Since Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope to 0 BBY0 ABY, the events of "Chapter 1: The Mandalorian" through "Chapter 6: The Prisoner" must have taken place around 9 ABY, while the events of "Chapter 7: The Reckoning" through "Chapter 16: The Rescue" took place in 9 ABY.
