"That is one big cruiser-crusher!"
Ahsoka Tano upon seeing the Malevolence for the first time[src]

The Malevolence was a Subjugator-class heavy cruiser[2] used in the Malevolence campaign by General Grievous and Count Dooku during the Clone Wars. Its deadly Mega-ion cannons could disable the power systems of entire fleets, rendering them defenseless against the ship's massive array of lasers.[5]

Jedi Master Plo Koon led a fleet to engage the Malevolence, but was defeated. He was later rescued by Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano.[5] Dooku assigned the Malevolence to a major clone trooper medical center. On its way to the center it destroyed a medical convoy. The warship reached the center but before it could attack it, a group of Y-wing starfighters led by Anakin Skywalker intercepted it. The attack led to the Malevolence's ion cannons being disabled and the ship badly damaged.[4]

Senator Padmé Amidala was then taken hostage aboard the Malevolence, and Skywalker and Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi boarded the ship to rescue her. Prior to escaping the ship Skywalker tampered with its navicomputer. Grievous fled on his starfighter after noting that the battle had been lost. The sabotaged navicomputer caused the Malevolence to crash into the Dead Moon of Antar when it attempted to jump to hyperspace.[7]
