General Grievous is a fictional character, part of the Star Wars canon. He is a chief antagonist in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, alongside Count Dooku, Darth Vader, and Palpatine. He was voiced by Matthew Wood. According to the Revenge of the Sith DVD, series creator George Lucas instructed his creative team to create an enemy that foreshadowed Anakin Skywalker's transformation into Darth Vader: the heavy breathing, the cyborg body, and his seduction into a malevolent faction.

Despite his hunched appearance, Grievous is very deadly with a lightsaber, having hunted and killed Jedi knights and kept his victims' lightsabers as trophies. Combined with his cybernetic body, which is capable of wielding up to five lightsabers at once (counting one held in one of his feet, the other being used to maintain balance) he makes a deadly foe in close combat to all but a master Jedi. However, he usually wields only four in his hands. He has been trained in the Jedi arts by Count Dooku.

The opening crawl of Revenge of the Sith explains that Grievous and Count Dooku have kidnapped Chancellor Palpatine and are holding him hostage. Grievous soon has Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker captured onboard his vessel, the Invisible Hand. Skywalker and Kenobi escape and confront Grievous on the bridge. Grievous grabs a fallen guard's electrostaff and smashes it through the viewport, sending himself into space. He uses a grappling hook to pull himself to the ship's exterior. He then uses his mechanical feet to magnetize to the outside of his fallen flagship to regain entry into the vessel, and flees in an escape pod.

Grievous directs his escape pod to the nearest Trade Federation control ship, where he orders his armies to retreat. He then travels to the planet Utapau, where the Separatist Council reside. Grievous is now the supreme leader of the Confederacy, as Dooku, the previous leader, died at Skywalker's hand in the earlier battle. Sidious orders him to move the Separatist leaders to the volcanic planet Mustafar.
