"The Kanji will be on me either way. This armor has a reputation."
"No problem. I've got some nano-spray paint. Use it to mark up patients before surgery. Evaporates in a few days. You can look however you want."
―Boba Fett and Doc Ragon[1]

Nano-spray paint was a type of spray paint that evaporated a few days after application. Doctor Ragon used the paint to mark-up patients before surgery. Sometime between 3 ABY and 4 ABY, the bounty hunter Boba Fett, in order not to be recognized, painted his armor black using nano-spray paint.


Nano-spray paint was a type of paint that could have different colors and that evaporated in a few days. Ragon, a criminal doctor, used nano-spray paint to mark patients before surgery in his clinic on the moon Nar Shaddaa.[1]

Sometime between 3 ABY and 4 ABY,[2] the bounty hunter Boba Fett had a job to do on behalf of Ragon, who allowed him to use nano-spray paint to paint his armor black. Fett joined a fight in the Garkata Fighting Arena against many warriors, including Wyrmen Lictor, a warrior who was valuable to the Kanji Hutts and that Ragon had asked him to kill. Since the Kanji Hutts were powerful, Fett used the paint in order to avoid being recognized, trying to avoid a feud with the Hutts. After killing all his opponents, Fett left the arena and, by the time he arrived back at Ragon's clinic, the paint was no longer on his armor.[1]

Later on, a hologram of Fett's armor painted black was displayed on Nar Shaddaa. When the Jedi Luke Skywalker saw it, he recognized the bounty hunter despite the paint.[3]
