"I know Toydarians. Nothing goes on under their watch without them knowing."
―Anakin Skywalker[src]

Toydarians were a sentient, winged species from the planet Toydaria. In addition to their ability to fly, Toydarians were physically defined by their long snouts and webbed feet, and could resist mental manipulation from the Force. During the Clone Wars, the Toydarians were ruled by King Katuunko. The Toydarians were, for a time, neutral during the Clone Wars, before eventually siding with the Galactic Republic.


"I'm a Toydarian! Mind tricks don't work on me, only money."
―Watto, to Qui-Gon Jinn[src]

A humanoid species, Toydarians were fly-like, possessing wings, a snout, and webbed feet.[2] Their wings allowed them to hover above the mud flats of their homeworld.[6] Like many other beings in the galaxy, Toydarians started out life as infants but grew larger as they became older.[7] They had blue[3] and green skin tones[4] with facial tusks beneath their trunk-like snouts. Toydarians were known to be strong-willed and resistant to mental manipulation with the Force.[2][3]

Society and culture[]

"Such despicable beings, the Toydarians."
Roman Herbane[src]

Able to hover over the mud flats of Toydaria,[6] Toydarians made nests in the muck lake atmosphere of their homeworld,[8] but built their palaces on mountain peaks.[6] Toydarians gathered in clans, and Toydarian clan bells signified members of noble families.[8] The species moved in flocks.[9] During the era of the Clone Wars, the Toydarians were governed by a monarchy.[5]


Hailing from their homeworld of Toydaria,[2] the Toydarians were led by a monarchy during the last decades of the Galactic Republic, and were ruled by King Katuunko as of the Clone Wars.[4]

King Katuunko

In 22 BBY,[10] during the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems, the Republic, intent on negotiating terms with the Toydarian government, led a mission to the moon of Rugosa under the supervision of Jedi Grand Master Yoda. However, upon arriving in the system, Yoda's cruiser was ambushed by two Separatist Munificent-class star frigates in an attempt made by the Dark Acolyte, Asajj Ventress, to force Yoda to flee the system and allow the Separatists to negotiate instead.[4]

Despite her attempts, Yoda and three clone troopers managed to reach the surface, where they were forced to fight against Ventress's army of battle droids. After prolonged fighting between Yoda, the clones, and Ventress's droids, the Jedi Master reached the Sith assassin and the Toydarian king, whose execution was ordered by Separatist leader, Count Dooku, but was prevented by Yoda, which forced Ventress to flee Rugosa and allow the Republic to successfully negotiate Toydaria's alignment in the war.[4]

Later in the war, Katuunko was killed by the Sith apprentice Savage Opress.[11]

Toydarians in the galaxy[]

The Toydarian Watto operated as a junk dealer on Tatooine during the lead-up to the war, and owned slaves including Shmi Skywalker and her son Anakin.[3]

During the Imperial Era, Walisi was a Toydarian merchant who ran Walisi's Elegant and Exotic Artifacts with his protocol droid RT-3PO. However, Walisi went on to be kidnapped by Wrecker, who himself was a Toydarian. Unlike Walisi, Wrecker was a mercenary leader, having been hired by the surviving Nightsister Jerserra to kidnap Walisi and steal the Tragic Hope, an artifact that contained the Nardithi Nightsisters' Nardithi Cluster, before the merchant could sell it.[12]

Zabaka, a female Toydarian, owned a toyshop in Black Spire Outpost, Batuu.[13]
