Rancors were large carnivorous animals originating from the planet of Dathomir. They were usually born brown, but in special circumstances, such as the mutant rancor and the Bull rancor, their color may have differed. They have been used for many things, ranging from mounts for the Witches of Dathomir to pets for crime lords such as Jabba the Hutt to being a source of food.
Role in Lego® Star Wars
A Rancor appears in the level Jabba's Palace as a boss. Rancor is playable with the Extra Toggle feature on, but is only playable in the Minikit Bonus for Episode I, since he is too big to walk around in a regular level.
