Ranking the Criminal Underworld....

So curious folks, how does the list of the various Criminal Underworld factions go?

At the top is of course the Black Sun, straightforward it's literally inside the galaxy, everywhere possible, involved in all manner of things and cemented as the most powerful Crime Organization in the galaxy thanks to Prince Xizor up until his untimely death.

But where would the others rank?

I'd disagree about the Black Sun being #1. The Shadow Collective took over the Black Sun, 2000 systems, and almost overcame the Separatist Army IIRC

BioWare really hyped up the Hutts as their own faction really, that both the Emprie and Republic needed help from.

The Hutts were also a big deal in the Clone Wars, due to the amount of Hutt controlled space, and Maul got them in the Shadow Collective for a while there. I'm still holding Shadow Collective at #1.

I'm speaking of Legends really, in which the Black Sun is number 1. Black Sun surpassed pretty much all including the Hutts thanks to Xizor.

Canon sure I can see the Shadow Collective, but including Legends I don't think so.

Even in legends the Shadow Collective absorbed the Black Sun and took over 2000 systems via Mandalore.

Right but this wasn't peak Black Sun anyway, peak Black Sun under Xizor is still the most powerful crime syndicate in the galaxy.

Plus I'm not really counting the Shadow, because it wasn't really a Criminal Organization that did things such as gun running, smuggling, extortion and what not. All it was, was just a collective in order to garnder Sidious' attention and bring Maul back to him.

Depends what is considered "criminal underground" and what isn't. I doubt there is much that can stand against the Hutt Empire during its heyday.

Ya know, smuggling, gun running, drugs, extortion, bribery, information gathering, black market trading, assassination, political corruption, etc so on and so forth.

If it helps here's the list as I see it to rank

Black Sun

Hutt Cartel

The Exchange

Zann Cosortium

Czerka

Those guys.

Hutt Empire sounds like a good bet then.

I'd say the Zann Consortium actually considering that after the deaths of Xizor and Jabba, they practically took control of the underworld, and possessed fleets that could challenge both the Empire and Rebellion, as well as the employ of some of the best bounty hunters in the business.

The Hutt Cartel would certainly be second to them however, and #2 before they arrived. If not #1 during the Old Republic era.

The Hutt Empire was the biggest power around for awhile. I'd put it well above the Black Sun.

Except at the height of the Black Sun, it already surpassed the Hutts. Plus the Hutt Empire didn't have the scope of the Black Sun anyway.

*Cartel

Sure, but they never reached the scope and influence that the Black Sun did.

I'd suggest you read Wolf's respect thread tbh:

I believe he's referring to the Hutt Empire, which was the major Galactic power at some point prior to the formation of the republic.


I myself am unsure that would actually qualify as a criminal syndicate however.

No. The Hutt Empire. And they didnít need influence, they were the dominant power in the galaxy for a while.

How is the Hutt Empire a criminal syndicate?

The Hutt Empire was not a criminal organisation, in any way, so no.
