"You are a Mandalorian! Your ancestors rode the great Mythosaur."
―Kuiil scolds Din Djarin[2]

Mythosaurs were creatures of gigantic proportions found on the Outer Rim world of Mandalore. They were allegedly tamed and ridden by ancient Mandalorians, but they went extinct long before the Mandalorian cataclysm. Its skull was one of the traditional symbols of Mandalorian iconography, and some Mandalorian armor bore the distinctive symbol.

Early history[]

The mythosaurs were found on the Outer Rim world of Mandalore.[1] They were allegedly tamed[3] and ridden[2] by ancient Mandalorians.[3] Long before the Mandalorian cataclysm they became extinct.[1]

Legacy[]

"We shall see. The songs of eons past foretold of the mythosaur rising up to herald a new age of Mandalore."
―The Armorer[4]

The mythosaur skull emblem

Though extinct, its memory lived on in the mythosaur skull emblem,[1] one of the traditional symbols of Mandalorian iconography,[5] with some Mandalorian armor bearing the distinctive symbol.[6] The creature shared its name with the mythosaur axe, a melee weapon used by the Mandalorians.[7]

In 9 ABY,[8] the Ugnaught Kuiil[9] was training the Mandalorian bounty hunter Din Djarin to ride blurrgs on[2] the planet Arvala-7[9] 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.[2]

By the reign of the New Republic, songs of eons past in the Mandalorian culture foretold of the mythosaur rising up to herald a new age of the Mandalorian culture.[4]

A mythosaur skull hung from one of the walls in Dok-Ondar's Den of Antiquities in Black Spire Outpost, Batuu.[10]

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.[11]

  8. StarWars.com SWCC 2019: 9 Things We Learned from The Mandalorian Panel on StarWars.com (backup link) establishes that The Mandalorian is set around 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, which corresponds to 9 ABY according to Galactic Atlas. Therefore, 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.
