The Nexu should be especially terrifying for anyone who has a fear of rats, mice, or any other type of rodent. It appeared in Attack of the Clones in the Battle of Geonosis and was unleashed to assassinate Padmé, Obi-Wan, and Anakin.
The creature sports white fur with blue stripes and has a creepy fleshed out tail. The beast also has four eyes, and spikes that come off of its back adding to its menacing appearance. The Nexu also features razor-sharp teeth that open in a Joker-esque smile and long claws that could make quick work of any prey that gets in its way.
The Nexu falls to 15 on the list for a couple of reasons. For one, it turns out to be quite weak as a swinging kic to the abdomen from a 105-pound Senator Amidala did it in. When it awakes from that blow it just whimpers off. So apparently, this rat is mostly bark with not much bite.
The Mynock appears in The Empires Strikes Back and delivers the biggest jump-scare in the entire saga. When Han, Leia, and the gang take refuge in an asteroid to avoid detection from the Empire, they begin to sense something is amiss with their hiding spot. Leia looks out the cockpit of The Falcon and suddenly, this disgusting lamprey-like bat appears out of nowhere on the glass complete with a screeching sound. It’s a shock Leia didn’t get a stain in her white jumpsuit after seeing that.
The Mynock falls at 14 due to the fact it’s more gross than scary, but the fact it all made us jump out of our seats when we first watched Empire, makes it definitely one of the creepiest monsters in all of Star Wars.
