Nododo was an ancient trickster deity, one of the "guds" worshiped by the Gungans. Despite his divine nature, he would spend his time playing dirty tricks on mortals or even other guds.[1]

Nododo only appeared in the French version of Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds.

According to Daniel Wallace, the legend of Nododo—"who can only appear in physical form as an opee sea killer, a kaadu, a peko peko, or a shaak"—was to be explained in an entry of the cancelled book The Essential Guide to Episode I. It was meant to be a reference to the Lucas Learning children's video game Star Wars: Yoda's Challenge Activity Center where one of the missions revolved around the player recovering four sacred statues from the Gungan Caves. The sacred statues themselves were in the shape of an opee sea killer, a kaadu, a peko peko, and a shaak.[2]

However, Nododo was mentioned in the French edition of the 2001 video game Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds, in the database entry pertaining to the Gungan society. Nododo was not featured in the English version of the entry, and the French edition also mentions other exclusive guds such as Mekamok, Balam, or Gobba.
