- "I took a laser blast in the chest, years back. The medibots fitted me with a metal lung."
The lungs were the essential organs of respiration in oxygen-breathing animals, including humans and Gungans. The Gungan species had strong and sturdy lungs which allowed them to hold their breath for extended periods, enabling them able to travel freely to their underwater cities.
When Anakin Skywalker crashed into the lava sands of Mustafar following his duel with Obi-Wan Kenobi, he lost use of his lungs, along many other injuries, and had to be rebuilt as a cyborg to ensure his survival.
