The virus bomb was created and utilized by Dr. Nuvo Vindi to spread his modified Blue Shadow Virus back into the galaxy.



Round and easily portable, the virus bombs were gray spheres which held canisters of Vindi's Blue Shadow Virus.

Vindi manufactured many of these bombs to release his air-potent Blue Shadow Virus back into the galaxy. When his plot was discovered, Anakin, Obi-Wan and Ahsoka led a raid on his lab. After Vindi attempted to escape, he remotely activated the bombs, intending on releasing the plague. Fortunately, Bomb squad troopers managed to deactivate all the bombs in time.

Later, Padmé and the Bomb squad discovered that a virus canister was missing from one of the bombs. Vindi's servant droid LEP-86C8, having possession of the missing canister, sneaked back into the bomb room and placed the canister back into a bomb. Before the clone troopers were able to stop it, the droid set the bomb off and the virus was released into the lab, infecting Ahsoka, Rex and the clone troopers, and later Padmé as well. Anakin and Obi-Wan managed to find a cure for the virus in time which was a Reeksa root from Iego.

Behind the scenes

In The Frozen Citadel, there were a few similar virus bombs that contained the deadly Rooze Disease.
