"You cannot pass."
―Gatekeeper to Luke Skywalker[src]

This gatekeeper was a light purple-skinned male individual of canine features who lived on Hoth and could be seen carrying a spear. When Luke Skywalker, along with C-3PO, found him, he initially did not let them pass. C-3PO then talked to him and the gatekeeper eventually let them move along.

Behind the scenesEdit

This creatures appeared in the ambiguously canon Star Wars 1987 Famicom game. In the Japanese version, he was identified via Katakana as モンバンダ (Monbanda), which translated to "Gatekeeper." However, unofficial translations of the game have erroneously attributed "Monbanda" as his actual name rather than simply his literal job.
