Ratbats were a non-sentient species that lived on Despayre, a prison world in the Atrivis sector of the Outer Rim Territories. The ratbats were caught by the prisoners working on the surface of Despayre and roasted, contributing to their meager diet. All the ratbats on Despayre perished with the destruction of the planet by the first Death Star that occurred in 0 BBY.

Notes and references
- Death Star
- Star Wars: Rebellion
- The Essential Guide to Warfare places the attack on the first Death Star in 0 BBY. The attack on the first Death Star appears in the novel Death Star and takes place before the Destruction of Despayre. Since the DS-1 Orbital Battle Station was destroyed in 0 BBY according to The New Essential Chronology, the Destruction of Despayre must have also occurred in 0 BBY.
