(8) Watto vs. (9) Tusken Raider

(8) Watto

Watto is a junk dealer on the planet Tatooine. Qui-Gon Jinn and Padme Amidala stumble upon his shop when looking for parts for their starship. Watto also happens to be the owner of slaves Shmi and Anakin Skywalker. He places a pod-race bet with Jinn so that they can afford to get the parts they need. He also agrees to release Anakin to them if Skywalker can win the race.

(9) Tusken Raider

The Tusken Raider, or also known as Sand People, are a nomadic group on the planet Tatooine. They are very aggressive and attack without warning. The Tusken Raiders kidnap Shmi Skywalker and she eventually dies in Anakin Skywalker's arms. This causes Anakin to slaughter the group as his anger really begins to seep out. They also attack Luke Skywalker and C-3PO in A New Hope while they are searching for R2-D2, eventually being rescued by Obi-Wan Kenobi.
