What is a Mythosaur in The Mandalorian? The adventures of Mando and his companions have officially begun, but the latest episode of the series introduced fans to some all-new monsters, including a potential Mythosaur.
When Din Djarin and Baby Yoda landed on the planet Mandalore in The Mandalorian season 3 episode 2, they were on a quest to find the living waters in the mines of Mandalore so that Mando could redeem himself from past sins. Along the way they fought many new Star Wars aliens, and recruited help from Bo-Katan who saw a huge Mythosaur in the living waters while rescuing Din Djarin.
Since then, Mythosaurs have been a big part of The Mandalorian season 3 as Bo-Katan has been hiding her discovery. So, what is a Mythosaur, and what else do we need to know about these legendary creatures?
What is a Mythosaur?
Mythosaurs are legendary enormous monsters in the Star Wars universe, which were used by ancient Mandalorians and thought to be extinct. Native to the planet of Mandalore, the Mandalorians used to ride Mythosaurs into battle, having tamed them.
The skull of the Mythosaur is a commonly used symbol among Mandalorians, used as a reminder of their people’s proud history.
Was that a Mythosaur in The Mandalorian season 3 episode 2?
Yes, that was a Mythosaur seen by Bo-Katan in The Mandalorian season 3 episode 2. The character herself seemed uncertain, but has since confirmed her sighting in subsequent episodes.
Why is Bo-Katan hiding her Mythosaur discovery?
On multiple occasions now Bo-Katan has had the chance to share that she saw a Mythosaur, however she has instead chosen to hide her discovery. She has neither told Din Djarin (who she saved from the Mythosaur) or The Armorer, who spoke to her about Mythosaurs.
The exact reason for this is unclear, but it seems that Bo-Katan believes keeping her discovery to herself is in some way beneficial. It could be that she is putting herself in a stronger position by not sharing her discovery, or, she might just think she wouldn’t be believed.
Either way, Bo-Katan is keeping the Mythosaur a secret for now. But, we imagine that her discovery will be unveiled before The Mandalorian season 3 is over.
