Grievous' hatred for the Jedi was well known throughout the galaxy and was stated by him on many occasions.

Grievous fought Obi-Wan Kenobi briefly and overpowered him, but the two Jedi managed to escape with Padmé and C-3PO. However, Kenobi managed to rip open Grievous' chest plates, revealing Grievous' gut-sack. Grievous emerged from the waterfall unscathed, and attacked the flow with his blades, but was unable to cause any damage to the shining entity within. The cyborg, nicknamed the "head clanker" by the Republic clones due to his cybernetics and role as Confederate Supreme Commander, became one of the Republic's priority targets. Grievous then moved his fleet to Zanbar and launched several landing craft to destroy the Mandalorian warriors, starting off the Battle of Zanbar. [3], Kenobi jumped down from a bar above and greeted Grievous, who applauded his audacity before ordering his bodyguards to kill the Jedi Master. The son of his mother and father, Grievous was a Kaleesh warlord and feared warrior from the planet Kalee. With the Jedi having infiltrated the base and with his bodyguards deactivated, the Count had hoped to punish Grievous for his recent failures. As Grievous attempted to finish her off, a large wave of Nightsister zombies attacked him, with both armies once again engaging each other in combat. In order to understand the transmission the Republic sent D-Squad, a group of Republic droids, to a Separatist dreadnought to retrieve an encryption module. The legend said Grievous transformed himself because he admired the logic of droids and wanted to mirror their infallibility, strength, and power. Grievous pursued the Twilight in his personal starfighter, the Soulless One, but Skywalker had sabotaged the navigation system of the Malevolence so that when the ship engaged its hyperdrive, it crashed directly into the nearby Dead Moon of Antar. The four engaged­­­ in lightsaber combat; Grievous attacked Maul while Sidious freed his apprentice from Talzin with the use of Force lightning. [75] Among Bone's memories was one of wielding four lightsabers with four hands and the blades spinning,[76] like how Grievous had once dueled. He was shot and killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi in 19 BBY on Utapau, but then was resurrected by Jabba the Hutt in 2016. [30], Grievous then took the Chancellor aboard his flagship the Invisible Hand. Grievous fought boldly, pushing them back and showing no remorse for the slaughter he perpetrated. As they were escaping, Grievous and STAPs pursued them and boarded their tank. Despite Tano's claims that her Master would destroy Skytop Station, Grievous believed otherwise. He obtained the boy's lightsaber, as well as a datapad revealing the location of the Jedi Temple. However, Kleeve saw his obsession with killing Jedi as a distraction and warned against attacking before he left for Kaller. [13] Jedi Anakin Skywalker considered him a monster that needed to be stopped,[29] but Skywalker and Grievous would not meet face-to-face until the war had nearly reached its conclusion. [70], With the Republic Military occupied in the galaxy's spiral arms, the capital of Coruscant was left with fewer defenses. In order to reach the target, the Malevolence had to navigate around the Kaliida Nebula. Grievous, thinking Kenobi had been killed in the explosion, made his escape aboard a flight pod. [23], During the war, the clone troopers of the Republic Military,[24] having nicknamed the Confederacy's battle droids "clankers,"[25] accordingly nicknamed Grievous the "head clanker. Grievous landed in the Executive District[69] and fought his way through layers of security forces and Jedi to secure Palpatine, killing Jedi Roron Corobb and knocking out Master Shaak Ti with electrified cables and stealing their lightsabers in the process. However, Grievous ordered them to back away as he decided to engage Kenobi himself. However, the craft malfunctioned,[29] and Grievous and the droids were forced to evacuate into escape pods. [47], Dooku, at the behest of his master, ordered Grievous to arrange an attack on Coruscant. They landed and the pair approached a chamber said to hold a stone column that was the heart of Mother Talzin's power.

[37], Grievous' Munificent-class star frigates attempt to block the Twilight's escape, Later, Grievous was contacted by the Nachkt, who informed him that he had the droid in his possession and was en route to their rendezvous point. Grievous reentered the chamber calmly striding towards the now beaten Talzin; Grievous then ignited his lightsabers and plunged them through the witch's chest. He had also managed to turn Anakin Skywalker to the dark side of the Force, making him the Sith Lord Darth Vader. General Grievous’s traditional Kaleesh mask eventually ended up on the invisible market after this, which was a market even more illegal and dangerous than the black market. [57] They tracked down the crystal and stole it from those who were trafficking in it, but Grievous's forces were then able to claim it. As a result of the escape of some survivors, Dooku's trust in Grievous was shaken, and the Sith Lord left to discuss plans with his master, Darth Sidious. During the assault, Ventress managed to acquire the DNA sample but her escape was prevented by Skywalker, and in the ensuing fight the sample was lost. After his shuttle crash, Grievous was left feeling bitter and cheated, having been robbed a proper warrior's death. Eventually, the doctor was incredibly successful in creating this droid copy of General Grievous, and put it into action, on the front lines of any battle he deemed it necessary to use. [55], Near the end of the war, Dooku and Grievous were involved in a weapons deal to acquire a massive kyber crystal from Sugi arms dealers led by Endente. This cyborg was General Grievous.

Blaming a sensor error, Grievous kept trying to grab the image until he grew angry enough to fling himself into the raging water.[15]. [35] He considered that the droids he commanded were created only to follow orders, and he believed they were not made to question him.[15]. However, Republic Intelligence was unable to break the new encryption technology used in the transmission, and the Republic feared this was leading to an upcoming major attack. Dooku then ordered him to direct his entire droid fleet at Maul's recently formed crime syndicate—the Shadow Collective and ordered him to destroy his army and wound his pride, but not to kill him. He was raised by his family to become a skilled warrior as part of the Kaleeshheritage and was identified as a highly intelligent and powerful warrior in the eyes of the Kaleesh leadership. He tore through the clone trooper ranks until he made his way to Kenobi, whom he proceeded to duel and overpower. In 19 BBY, Grievous launched a daring raid on Coruscant, the Republic capital world, resulting in the abduction of Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine. [20] As the Separatist Army's leader, Grievous would cause fear throughout the Republic,[21] although the Confederate populace were not told the stories of the General's onslaughts.

After the commando droids had taken control of the station, Grievous was contacted by their captain aboard his Munificent-class star frigate, who informed him that the outpost was secure, and that they managed to disable the alarm and activate the all-clear signal. One of his B1s, which were now running very low on power, responded that they were nearly there, although the unit's low power caused it to mix the sentence's words into the wrong order. However Grievous, having earlier deduced that he was being tricked, had laid a trap for the Jedi. Pleased, the general informed her that he had almost reached their rendezvous point.

[3], After the Republic received word that Grievous was hiding on Utapau, General Kenobi was sent to defeat him. The Separatists were pushed to the Outer Rim Territories, and, in the campaign known as the Outer Rim Sieges, the Republic Military kept up the pressure. When communication with the droids was abruptly cut off, Grievous sent a battalion of droids to inspect the station. As a cyborg, Grievous wore a Kaleesh cloak, which was a vestige of his past identity, as well as a fearsome mask that was often worn by Kaleesh warriors. The chamber was located very near the Nightbrother village where Maul was born. [51] With Daka's death, all the arisen Nightsisters returned to the grave, leaving the rest outnumbered, and eventually massacred by Grievous' army. Despite being severely outnumbered and outgunned, the Nightsisters were initially able to hold their ground. [36], After ending the transmission, a battle droid informed the general that their spy on Kamino, Asajj Ventress, was contacting him. Grievous' super tactical droid Tey-Zuka reported to the cyborg general that a lone transport shuttle had left Dathomir moments ago, with Ord Mantell being a possible destination.
