Background: Dioxis was a toxic gas used by the Trade Federation and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Dioxis grenades were grenades that released poisonous gas and were used during the Galactic Civil War.

During the Trade Federation’s invasion of the planet Naboo, the Neimoidians attempted to kill Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi by flooding a conference room of their Lucrehulk-class Battleship with poisonous gas. However, Jinn and Kenobi found their way out of the room and fled to Naboo.

During the Clone Wars, Count Dooku used dioxins in a contest on Sereno. Within an area known as the Box, eleven bounty hunters competed in a series of tests to prove whether they should be chosen as part of a team that would kidnap Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine. The first task saw the competitors, including a disguised Kenobi, having to escape a room flooded with gas.
