Static pikes were a type of pike used by the Geonosian picadors of the Petranaki arena on the planet Geonosis in order to control the various animals used for entertainment in the arena. In 22 BBY, picadors riding orrays used static pikes to control the reek, nexu and acklay that were released into the arena in order to execute the prisoners Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala. One picador prodded the nexu with a static pike, prompting the creature to attack and kill the picador. After the execution expanded into the Battle of Geonosis, Kenobi took a picador's static pike and hurled it like a javelin at the ackaly, piercing it's hide but to little effect.
