The Sun Crusher is a prototype superweapon from the Star Wars universe. It first appeared in the Jedi Academy Trilogy by Kevin J. Anderson when Han Solo was captured by Moruth Doole, overseer of Kessel. Solo managed to escape the spice mines where he was being held prisoner, and steal a ship. He was forced into the Maw, where only the latent Force abilities, partially schooled by Vima-Da-Boda, of Kyp Durron enabled them to navigate safely to the center of the cluster of black holes. Unfortunately, they had stumbled upon a long secret Imperial base (the Maw Installation), where they were immediately taken prisoner again, this time by Admiral Daala. The scientist who designed the Sun Crusher, and much of the original Death Star, Qwi Xux, learned that Solo had been on the Death Star and interrogated him on the experience. Solo managed to break through her naivete, and convince her of the Empire's intrinsic evil. Convinced, she aided them in their escape - taking her newest project with them. Their escape did not go unopposed, but the Sun Crusher was so speedy, and its quantum-shifted armor so fantasically tough, that the escapees simply rammed the first of the four Star Destroyers in their way, destroying it and securing their freedom.

The Sun Crusher is a near-indestructible craft which destroys entire star systems using a resonance torpedo that causes a star to explode in a supernova. Its weapon systems, and its novel, indestructible quantum armor were developed in a secluded area known as "the Maw", a unique grouping of black holes nearby the prison/spice-production planet of Kessel that has a small safe zone within; each cost as much to develop as the entire Death Star. It is only about the size of a starfighter, yet its armor was powerful enough to withstand a glancing blow from the main beam of the Death Star prototype, which was stored at the Maw installation.
