This article is about the creature native to Kashyyyk. You may be looking for the speeder bike of the same name.

Kybucks were ungulates native to the Woolwarricca prairies of Kashyyyk, and similar in appearance to the Tauntauns of Hoth.[1]

Their swift speed, along with the cover of their natural environment, allowed them to be able to run from predators. Kybucks could run at up to 90 kilometers per hour. Males had short horns sitting atop their head. There were many different breeds of kybucks, often identifiable by relative size and form of their horns.

Kybucks mated for life. They raised an annual litter of two or three foals in rearing grounds protected by a barb thicket. Kybucks tended to flee from enemies when alone, but if a foe threatened a kybuck's offspring, the parents would fight to defend them. Kybucks attacked using leaping kicks and horned head-butts to fight off enemies. Judging by the way Yoda spoke to his kybuck, these creatures appeared to be quite intelligent.

The Wookiees of Woolwarrica adored the kybuck for having protective familial instincts that resembled that of the Wookiee culture. The Wookiees did not hunt the creatures. Some chieftains often domesticated kybucks as a symbol of status; others gave them as gifts.

Grand Master Yoda of the Jedi Order was the recipient of over thirty three kybucks from a point in time before 115 BBY[2] to 19 BBY as a result of his saving the life of a Woolwarricca princess.

While patrolling on Korriban, one of Yoda's kybucks was attacked and killed by an enraged tukata. In approximately 32 BBY, Yoda recorded this event in Sorzus Syn's chronicle and noted that he had not yet replaced it. [3]

By 19 BBY, however, Yoda would have a new one, that would assist him during the Battle of Coruscant.

A colony of kybucks was established on Felucia during the battle there by Confederate mercenaries, including Vazus Mandrake, who tended to the creatures after the war's end.

Behind the scenesEdit

The kybuck was given an action figure along with Yoda in the fifth wave of Hasbro's Star Wars: 30th Anniversary Collection. This pack was re-released in the Star Wars: The Legacy Collection line.
