"...And if you're thinking of escaping, just remember, my new pet is very hungry."
Maris Brood reminding Bail Organa of her pet rancor[src]

The bull rancor was a much larger subspecies of the common rancor. They were often found on the jungle world of Felucia. When prey was scarce, they had to revert to eating the giant fungi growing on their home planet; this was one possible explanation for their size and color. A form of bull rancor was also to be found on the mountainous planet of Dathomir.

CharacteristicsEdit

Bull Rancor

A bull rancor attacked by hunters.

The bull rancor was marked by its paler flesh, elongated tail and the males' immense horns that sprouted from their massive heads. These generally solitary creatures were incredibly dangerous, even to other rancors, and guarded the legendary "rancor graveyard" on Felucia. They were noted to have been much more aggressive than the females, and lesser male kindred, and the Felucians believed that they were incapable of being captured or tamed. They had extremely tough armor, but the eyes and mouth were two major weak points.

HistoryEdit

After the death of her master, Padawan Maris Brood began to slip to the dark side of the Force whereupon she formed a strong bond with a bull rancor on Felucia. The creature became her new "pet" and was intensely loyal to Maris, willing to fight to the death to protect her. When she captured Senator Bail Prestor Organa, she warned him not to escape as the bull rancor was "very hungry." When Galen Marek came to the planet again to free the senator, Maris sent forth the bull rancor to stop him. However, the creature was slain by the Sith apprentice when he exploited the weakness in its armor.

Behind the scenesEdit

There is a discrepancy between the bull rancors that appear in Star Wars Galaxies and the ones that appear in The Force Unleashed, with the Galaxies ones more closely resembling normal rancors, as does the Bull rancor depicted in the Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game. This may be because Maris Brood's Bull Rancor was possibly warped by the dark side of the Force, along with Brood. Brood's Bull Rancor is black (or very dark green) and covered in large horns and tusks. Also, in The Force Unleashed, the Bull Rancor in the Wii/PS2 version seems much larger than in the PS3/XBox360 version.
