seems infactual
 
just want to say something about this game... i've never played it, but a freind of mine says you fight a "glowing rancor". i told him he probly had his facts wrong.... he showed me a picture of it and it lokked nothing like a rancor...? and if it was chemicly mutated it did'nt fit with history. jabba's the only being to keep one in captivity. any info on that for me?

It was probably from a long line of Rancors that slowly mutated from eating or being around the fungi of Felucia. The horns as well as the glow are just a product of the mutation.

maybe. but unlikely... could have benn made up for the game...could not even be a rancor! it also hade a long tail by the way.

Trench 08-03-2009 07:19 PM

Its been canonized as a Rancor. Its actually called a Bull Rancor:p
Check here.

Maybe they did it because the original Rancor is boring. It was scary for the first time you saw it in ep6, but then............even JK3 mutated a Rancor:p
They made it because the "Bull Rancor" is Tougher/Stronger/Scarier than the original.

I think he's talking about a Junk Titan people. But I could be wrong . . . either way, even the Bull Rancor doesn't glow. I don't know how it ever would haha.

Then again, it would be really hard to mix up the two . . . it probably was the Bull and had some sort of abnormal lighting effect on it. The Junk Titan didn't have a tail.

You guys also have to remember that some guys get really confused and others just like to make things up.

Did this match the description your friend gave you?

The only glowy TFU Rancors I can think of are those three (or more...can't remember) that pop up on Felucia - and I always took the glowing to be merely flourescent war-paint, much like the Felucians themselves.

Such as this particularly ugly specimen:

Certainly can't recall a 'glowing' rancor, unless it was something in the Wii/PS2/etc. version.

Te Je'karta Mand'alor 08-03-2009 09:37 PM

that matches it pretty good...but the one he showed me had a tail

Huh, the nose ring for that one really adds to it's ugliness, they should of added that sort of thing for all of them.

JKAMaster 08-13-2009 04:25 AM

The glow is paint, they are tamed by the Felucians

TheChosen0ne 08-20-2009 07:17 PM

I don't remember fighting a Glowing rancor... just normal and bull.

WraithPrince 08-20-2009 07:55 PM

The blue and green splotches on the rancors hes refuring too they have a slight glow to them, they glow more in the wii version then in the 360 and ps3.

TheChosen0ne 08-27-2009 06:51 PM

I don't even see it in the ps2 version...

The thing that TriggerGod showed was just freaky. I hate rancors because they're always like impossibly difficult to kill. I know they're huge, but two minutes to saw through one of their heads with a lightsaber throw? And that's a NORMAL rancor. The one with the radioactive breath is just impossible to kill.

The propuse of that Rancor is not to be killed. That particual level only ends when you trap the Rancor.
