Terentateks where also found on Tatooine, Onderon, Yavin 4, Tython and Kashyyyk.

Source? By the way, the plural is "terentatek", not "terentateks". - Sikon [Talk] 03:46, 31 Oct 2005 (UTC)

  • All right, Tatooine appears in Shadows and Light, but what of the others? - Sikon [Talk] 16:32, 4 Nov 2005 (UTC)
    • They're mentioned in Shadows and light as well, by the Dantooine Council. - Lord Hydronium 01:05, 12 Dec 2005 (UTC)


According to the game Star Wars:Knights of the Old Republic, the creature in the picture is not a terentatek (I'm not sure how it is spelled). It's a creature called Rakhghoul which lives in Taris. A terentatek looks like a dinosaur with a huge head and claws. I'll put a picture of it as soon as I find one. Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

  • I've deleted the image. --Imp 13:05, 17 Jan 2006 (UTC)

Possible concept art?Edit

Are these 2 images concept art of terentatek?
    • I'm not sure about the one on left, but the one on right is concept art for Minstyngar. -Logisland 07:56, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
  • maybe the left one was another idea for the creatures the one had guarding him in his throne room? heck, i don't know...Tryzon 11:57, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Midichlorian EatersEdit

Now this is just speculation by me, but could the terentatek live off of eating midichlorians? It is said that they drink the blood of Force users, and the blood of Force users has a high concentration of midichlorians. That's my theory: that terentatek eat midichlorians. What do you all think? Unsigned comment by WildKazoo (talk • contribs).

  • Whatever we think is irrelevant for an encyclopedia, which only accepts facts. - Sikon [Talk] 14:58, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

Could some have started breeding when Palpatine assumed the title of Emperor?Edit

The Dark Side had waxed fully by then, so would it be possible for the Terentateks to be reawakened and started breeding?-Rob

If so, it's not backed up by any sources. -Milo FettComlink 01:16, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

im pretty sure the creature in the shadow lands on kashyyyk in Kotor 1 was a minstyngar and had no relation to these terentatek. Minstyngars are very commonly seen in the Ryyat trail in starwars galaxies the lowest level of the trail is very reminicent of the shadow lands of kotor 1. just my 2 cents, im pretty confident they are different species from differant worlds.

  • of course the beast on Kashyyyk is a Terentatek- it is identical to the things you find on Korriban, which are clearly identified on a Datapad in the game as Terentatek. This proves that the sacred beast was a Terentatek. Phew. I'm never writing Terentatek takes too long -Tryzon

Minstyngars and Terentatek are differentEdit

  • like i said above, it is clearly a Terentatek. (god, i hate that word) Tryzon 11:59, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Immune to the Force????Edit

Terentateks are immune to the force? In Kotor you can use the force stun to stun them. And use drain life if Jolee Bindo or Juhani is in the group. (You are right, this word is long and hard to write.)

Don't say Tryzon didn't warn you. And yes, I keep thinking about that point you've brought up. The article says they were practically immune to the force, so one would assume that a seriously bombad force user might stand a chance of blastin' some good ol' force juice at the beast. After all, all sources point towards Revan being a pretty powerful bloke. Failing all else, i think the reason one can use force on the Terentatek in KOTOR >X# because otherwise they would be really hard and/or boring to fight in the game. that's Tryzon's thoughts Tryzon 16:27, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

From the game, I remember it sayign soemthing about them having "a Built in RESISTANCE" to the force, not immunity.

Massassi Ancestry?Edit

Pure speculation, of course, but those spines on their heads and backs got me thinking. A striking resemblence to the Massassi altered first by Naga Sadow and then by Exar Kun. Perhaps the Terentatek would be another of Kun's Massassi experiments? Gorthuar 22:46, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

"Terentateks were still present on Kashyyk during the galactic civil war" do we have a source for this - Zuckuss777

Big Mistake Edit

In the article, it says the Jedi Exile fought a Terentatek in the Shyrak caves. Did I miss something? Is this true? Someone enlighten me.LastJedi1515 01:16, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Yes it's true. In Kotor 2 you fight a Terentatek in the Shyrak caves on Korriban. 04:42, February 20, 2010 (UTC)R88

  • Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think you do fight one in KoTOR II. You do in KoTOR I on the stone bridge near the end of the cave, but in II Sith Assassins, not a Terentatek, ambush you on the bridge. I admit it's been a little while since I played KoTOR II, but I don't think the Exile ever fights one on Korriban. Either way, this isn't a big issue since the article no longer mentions the Exile fighting one, it only states correctly that there was one in the cave near what was later revealed to be Ludo Kressh's Tomb. Vangardt 18:11, July 12, 2010 (UTC)

I just played through KotOR II and there are NO TERENTATEKS in the game. You don't fight one in the Shyrack caves. Removing that reference. 22:44, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

Confusion Edit

The article says the hunts were -->never<-- successful, then goes on about how they were exterminated. How can this be? 03:36, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

  • Sorry to restart old topics but I also belive that it should be reworded to somthing like: not often succesful, rarely succesful, most of the time they where unsuccesful. Or somthing to that extent. - Awar 20:15, September 30, 2009 (UTC)

Blood of the Empire? Edit

An appearance was recently added for the webcomic Blood of the Empire, I assume from the appearance of some creature in the 7th part of issue 2. Is there a source saying this is a terentatek? If it is one, its proportions are notably different and it seems to be killed in no small part by the use of Force Lightning, which a terentatek should be fairly resistant to. Regardless, if there is not a source stating it is terentatek, then the appearance is speculation and should be removed. Vangardt 01:09, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

Great Hyperspace War Edit

We've recently found out that Terentatek existed, if not during the Great Hyperspace War, then at least a few decades after it. Odile Vaiken shot one not long after the Sith survivors re-discovered Dromund Kaas, as revealed in the latest Old Republic timeline. --Thenorthernman 19:48, December 14, 2010 (UTC)

Belsavis Edit

One of the pictures of a terentatek in the Old Republic holonet looks like it is on Belsavis. Darth Paramecium 23:32, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

Wow, were Terentateks originally Rancors before Sithspawn?!? Edit

Yeah, this makes it look like one: --Mike the Manchild (talk) 13:41, January 29, 2013 (UTC)

Update Edit

Updated the article to reflect information given in Timeline 11: Rebirth of the Sith Empire, and as such I have removed the update request template. FT:

  • The first recorded encounter with a modern terentatek occured on the jungle world of Dromund Kaas in 4,904 BBY, when the link between the terenta and the terentatek was long forgotten. While clearing a section of the planet of jungle and hostile wildlife, the Human Odile Vaiken fought and slew a modern terentatek.
  • The Sith Lord Exar Kun was also reported to have created terentatek through Sith alchemy.

I added the first paragraph to update the article with the information given in Timeline 11, as part of WookieeProject Knights of the Old Republic. A major consequence of this is that since a terentatek was encountered in 4,904 BBY, they could not have been first created by Exar Kun, as he lived nearly 1,100 years later. I have attempted to remedy this problem by rewriting an existing sentence stating that Kun created the Terentateks into the content of the second paragraph. The existing sentence was as follows:

  • Some other sources, however, reported that they were first created on Yavin 4 by Exar Kun, as one of his experiments in 3997 BBY.

The rewritten one is as follows:

One more addition was slightly editing the following line:

  • A terentatek's hide was highly resistant—in some cases even immune—to the effects of the Force.

The edit is the highly resistant part, because not all terentatek were completely immune to the Force.

I also corrected several grammar errors and added punctuation to certain sentences, the most important of these being the correction of Terentatek to terentatek (as per Wookieepedia's Manual of Style) and terentateks to terentatek, as terentatek is both a singular and plural form. Punctuation additions are mostly commas and dots to divide long sentences.

Well, this should sum it all up. If there are any complaints or questions, or if I have violated a rule, please let me know. Adoras (talk) 17:20, December 20, 2013 (UTC)
