Best Moment

When it comes to best moments for Bossk, you have to consider his association with Boba Fett. The two were teamed up together very early on in their lives and bounty hunting careers, pulling off heists together and saving each on more than one occasion. It wasn’t a perfect relationship, but Bossk and Fett were a team that many of the events in the galaxy might not have happened if they weren’t together.

Worst Moment

Of course, all good things come to an end. There was a falling out between Bossk and Fett at some point — a story that is now Legend and may not be official — and the end of their relationship was the end of an era. You can’t blame bounty hunters for not getting along, but Bossk breaking off from Boba was like the band breaking up and the bassist trying to have a solo career all to his own.


Bossk is another one of those background characters who benefited greatly from the stories that were told later on about them. He’s one of the first Original Trilogy characters to have benefited from the recent canon, as Bossk was involved in the Rebels storyline and the character of Ezra. He won’t be the last character to benefit, but he was someone that both older and newer audiences couldn’t help but love to see.
