|[List of appearances]|
The Rancor species were originally from the planet Dathomir, home planet of Asajj Ventress.
Jabba's Rancor was given to him as a birthday present from Bib Fortuna. When the crime lord attempted to execute Luke Skywalker by dropping him into the Rancor pit, Luke killed the Rancor by crushing it under a large portcullis, piercing and crushing it's skull, causing Jabba to instead try and execute him and his friends at the Sarlacc pit. Later, Luke said he was sorry to kill the poor creature, but decided it was best to put it out of its misery, as it was half-starved and was impossible to relocate it.
