- "It's an entire world of pirates and outlaws."
- ―Luke Skywalker
Nar Shaddaa, nicknamed the "Smuggler's Moon," was the notorious moon of the planet Nal Hutta, homeworld of the Hutt species. It was home to a large criminal underworld dominated by bounty hunters and Hutt crime lords. An ecumenopolis, the entire surface of Nar Shaddaa was covered in urban sprawl. It was the homeworld of the Palliduvan bounty hunter Aurra Sing, the Zabrak Jedi Master Eeth Koth, and the Jablogian slaver Azmorigan. One of its cities, Hutta Town, was ruled by Grakkus the Hutt.
Prior to the Invasion of Naboo, the Sith apprentice, Darth Maul went to a bar on Nar Shaddaa. There, he tried to get information on Xev Xrexus's Cartel's auction of Eldra Kaitis. However, Maul got into a brawl when the patrons thought he was a Jedi, but he was saved by a group of bounty hunters led by Cad Bane.
During the Galactic Civil War in 0 ABY, Luke Skywalker traveled to Nar Shaddaa seeking a means to enter the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. There, he was captured by Grakkus the Hutt and forced to fight in gladiatorial combat. However he was able to escape due to the timely arrival of a force of stormtroopers hostile to Grakkus.
