Carnivore Battalion was a battalion of clone troopers that served in the Grand Army of the Republic under the 501st Legion during the Clone Wars.


Carnivore Battalion was a battalion that served in the 501st under Captain Rex. During the Battle of Devaron, Carnivore Battalion, originally stationed aboard the Resolute, manned AT-TE Walker 773 and, along with Execute Battalion and another brigade,[1] accompanied by Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and Jedi Commander Ahsoka Tano, boarded a CIS ship and proceeded to hunt the bounty hunter Cad Bane, wanted by the Galactic Republic for numerous crimes.[2][3]

The battalions fought off the droids on the outside of the frigate, and would enter the frigate's bridge and take out the droids there as well. A few men were sent to the hangar to recover a ship, while the rest located Ropal. They discovered he was dead, and a few men took the body back to the Resolute.[1] The battalion fought in the artillery area, against Cad Bane, the bounty hunter who had captured Ropal, as well as a battalion of battle droids. The battalion fought the droids, but took a few casualties.[1] A battle droid would accidentally mis-fire and hit a proton bomb, causing the hangar to collapse on itself. Rex, Denal, and a few other troopers would survive the falling debris. Skywalker would order them back to the hangar so they could escape.[1]

Execute and Carnivore Battalions would rendezvous back in the hangar, along with the troops who had been sent to secure a shuttle.[1] The troopers fought off as many droids and cleared a path to get to the shuttle to evacuate. Rex sent Denal and Koho to assist the General, while he ordered the rest of the company into the shuttle.[1] Koho and Denal were killed, but the remaining members of Execute and Carnivore Battalions were able to escape.[1][4]
