- "One step closer, you bantha-brained ape…and I crush his head like a tangoo melon."
- ―Grakkus, to Chewbacca
An ape was a creature that lived in the galaxy. Ape was often used as a way to insult an individual as exemplified when Princess Leia Organa referred to the smuggler Han Solo as an oversized ape, or when Grakkus the Hutt referred to the Wookiee Chewbacca as a bantha brained ape.
