The Malachor superweapon was an ancient Sith superweapon powered by a giant kyber crystal and housed in a temple on Malachor.[2] It had the power to petrify living beings.


During the Great Scourge of Malachor, the weapon fired, petrifying the warriors battling there.

In 3 BBY,[3] Darth Maul tricked Ezra Bridger into activating the superweapon; however, Bridger prevented the machine from completing its firing cycle.[1]
