Biological Description and Appearance: Do they look very bad?

All the time, the Star Wars franchise brings the enemy with different biological terms and appearances. This race is also one of those who can make you think twice about their outfit as well as biological form.

At first, the thing you will notice is their tall, muscular, and humanlike outfit but their face doesn’t make any sense for the scar. Their body and faces are equally disfigured which makes them uglier than other beings.

Without any hair, their head looks disgusting. Practically, it’s hard to find their nose in the position. It’s missing and that thing is also responsible for their horrible looks.

Most of the time, we found a theory about this race and that Yuuzhan Vong was a humanoid species but actually they are not.

If you try to match the characteristics between humans and Yuuzhan Vong then there are tons of dissimilarities. They don’t have any kidneys and all we know, without a kidney no human can survive. It is very possible that they could be a result of selective breeding.

Even they have longer lifespans than any other human. In their whole body structure, everyone can sense the presence of biotechnology.

What Happened to The Yuuzhan Vong?

There is a big question mark about the Yuuzhan Vong. In Star Wars, this species was introduced as the next big and the deadliest bad guy but the fate of this race was not so good.

Every fan of Star Wars has the same question. What happened to them and why didn’t the franchise continue their story with this race?

After removing them from the Star Wars canon, the story was getting another shape that guided the fans to a whole new level of an unknown galaxy.

In the New Jedi Order series, this race was one of the most dangerous then terrifying threats to everyone. Because of the mediation method to remove pain, this race is hardly beatable.

Yes, they are very much difficult to defeat. This race is also used as an alternative villain to the Sith. But Disney wanted to expand the plot of Star War Canon in different ways.

They wanted to reintroduce the previous legend’s storyline. To continue the strategy, they needed to send Yuuzhan Vong out of nowhere.

Yuuzhan Vong Creature is Back in The High Republic Brings:

There is an unexpected nod to Yuuzhan Vong. In the old expanded universe of Star Wars: The High Republic, they will be back. No, there is still a little bit of confusion about it.

The franchise brought back all these creatures to the Star Wars universe that is associated with the Yuuzhan Vong. Do you remember the vonduun crab? It was launched in 1991.

It has appeared in Timothy Zhan’s “Thrawn trilogy” and there was a concoction of this story with the race we are talking about. In the ongoing new Star War Project, the “New Jedi Order” series start to introduce different character and creature.

To move away from the traditional light-dark dynamic storyline, the franchise takes a risk. As a result, we found a whole new race of alien invaders called the Yuuzhan Vong.

With the unique biotechnology, this race worshiped pain and suffering. They face physical and psychological challenges.

In the Star War cannon, there are too many aliens. So, the franchise focuses on Yuuzhan Vong to vanish from the story.


Undoubtedly, the Yuuzhan Vong are one of the best alien additions in the Star Wars franchise. This race was considered a refugee from a distant galaxy.

After a long time fans knew about the homeworld of this mysterious race. It’s Yuuzhan’tar. This tropical planet has a large asteroid belt and protects the races. But it was destroyed for an unknown reason, it happened thousands of years before from the present situation.

This race is making the storyline more interesting and fans wanted to see what will happen next with this race as well the story. Sad but true, the Star Wars franchise discontinued this race for making another plot.
