"Gungans from every city across the swamps stood ear to ear. Otoh Mandassa with Otoh Gunga, Oxon City with Umberbool City."
Boss Rugor Nass, about the Battle of Grassy Plains[src]

Umberbool City was a city built in the swamps of the planet Naboo by the amphibious Gungan race.[1] In 32 BBY,[2] Naboo was invaded by the galactic company called the Trade Federation and their droid army, forcing the Gungans to retreat from their cities to locations such as the sacred place. After an alliance was made between the Gungans and Naboo's Human population, the Gungans assembled their Grand Army on the Great Grass Plains outside the Human city of Theed to combat the Trade Federation. Umberbool City was one of the many cities that gave troops to the army and fought the Trade Federation alongside Gungans from many other cities such as Otoh Gunga, Otoh Mandassa and Oxon.[1] The Gungans were nearly defeated at the battle, but were victorious when the ship controlling the droids was Naboo Space destroyed by a young boy named Anakin Skywalker.[3]
