Why didn't the Sano Aqua Jedi kill Palpatine?

I mean, in a straight up fight there's no doubt that the Sando Aqua Jedi would have slaughtered Palpatine, just due to the massive size difference. With Order 66 going on and everything, you'd think that he would get involved.

he was too busy trying to remember all the bingo bongo names everyone seems to have in star wars nowadays and suffered a level 3 Force Seizure. thus he was hospitalized at the time and was smothered to death by elite NurseTroopers.

He seemed to be alive and well at some point in time after the Empire adopted the TIE fighter, which is well after the fall of the Republic.

I miss Snaggletooth, Walrus Man, and Hammerhead.

I have no idea what a Sando Aqua is. Sounds like hair spray.

The Sando Aqua Monster is that giant monster from The Phantom Menace, that eats the giant fish that was trying to eat Qui-Gon's submarine. There's apparently an entire species of them native to the oceans of Naboo.

Well, any living sentient being can be a Jedi so no big surprise.

My first thought when reading the thread title is, they thought the Aqua Velva Jedi were handling it.

Pretty much everything gets named, yes, but I don't know where hyzmarca gets this idea that one of these creatures was a Jedi. Wookiepedia lists the animal as non-sentient and doesn't contain any information about any story featuring one as a Jedi.

i think this thread should be changed to 'why didn't the giant sea muppet cut the deathstar in half with his massive lightsaber?'

It looks like the "Sando Aqua Jedi" artwork came from the Star Wars Artists' Guild, where the caption specifically notes that it was made "in the spirit of good fun and nonsense."

The Sando Aqua Jedi was stopped by the Space Slug Sith.
