The dianoga was a sentient[1] cephalopod indigenous to the swampy planet of Vodran.[2] Those carnivorous creatures also inhabited the flooded garbage compactors of the Death Star.[5] Dianogas possessed seven suckered tentacles, and a single eyestalk protruding from the center of their bodies.[2]

During the rescue of Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker first realized something was alive in the garbage compactor, but shortly after his realization, a dianoga dragged Skywalker underwater. Han Solo and Organa were unable to locate him, but the dianoga released him just before the walls began to close.[5]

Experienced chefs could make grilled dianoga into a tasty breakfast dish, but overcooking it would activate the blood parasites in the fatty tissue, destroying the flavor.[6]
