The Zillo Beast is a boss in LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars in the episode The Zillo Beast.

Background

The Zillo Beast was supposedly the last of its kind. It lived on the planet Malastare until the Jedi brought it to Coruscant where they tried to take off its impenetrable scales for armor for their clones after successfully putting it to sleep with a special beam. It soon escaped and ran wild around Coruscant. It had only one goal- to kill Chancellor Palpatine, for it was he who imprisoned it. The clones turned its only weakness a certain type of acid into a gas bomb the clone pilots then surrounded the Zillo Beast fire their bombs and thus killed the Beast.

Sheev Palpatine apparently gave instructions for the creature to be cloned. Other Zillo Beasts-whether products of this cloning project or other surviving specimens of the original race-were encountered on two different planets. One was seen on Ord Tallorum, where it attacked a wrecked Droid Control Ship after discovering Han Solo, Chewbacca, and the Freemaker family-Pace, Lena, Zander, and Kordi-scavenging in the area. Pace hit upon the idea of reactivating the battle droids using the ship and using them to distract the Zillo Beast, which allowed the group to escape.

This same Zillo Beast was later encountered by Moxie Freemaker, R0-GR, Ka-Pao, and Maz Kanata when they were brought to Ord Tallorum by the machinations of Graballa the Hutt. Graballa's men were attacked-and at least some eaten-but the enemy parties managed to escape. Another Zillo Beast was encountered during the days of the Galactic Empire by Darth Vader, who was forced to retreat by its attack. His grandson Kylo Ren later faced the same beast, and succeeded in killing it by allowing it to swallow him and then attacking it from the inside.
