Wooof is a minor antagonist in Star Wars Episode IV: Return of the Jedi.
Wooof was a Kadas'sa'Nikto in the employ of Jabba the Hutt. He was in charge of maintenace on Jabba's sail barge the Khetanna. He witnessed Jedi Luke Skywalker's attempt to negotiate with Jabba for the release of Han Solo, and the subsequent fight between Luke and jabba's minions that ended in Luke and Jubnuk falling into the Rancor pit. He was later seen aboard Jabba's sand skiff preparing to execute Luke, Han and Chewbacca by feeding them to the Sarlacc. However, Luke's droid R2-D2 managed to slip Luke his lightsaber, and he was able to break free and fight against his wold-be executioners. After Velken Tezeri and several others were killed, Wooof attacked Luke, but Luke slashed him with his lightsaber, causing him to fall into the Sarlacc Pit, where he was eaten.
- In pre-production, Wooof was originally the name of a guard on the Khetanna who was killed when Luke deflected a laser into him, but this was later given to Klaatu. However, Wooof still retains this fate in the novelisation, whereas Klaatu dies when the Khetanna explodes.
