Nute Gunray is a fictional character and supporting villain from the Star Wars universe, played by Silas Carson in the films. Aside from Darth Sidious, he is the only villain to appear in all three films of the prequel trilogy.

Gunray is a Neimoidian, an amphibian-faced humanoid with snake-like eyes, and an enemy of the Galactic Republic. In Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Gunray and his organization, the Trade Federation, appear to be the movie's primary villains, but it is made clear early on to the audience that the real antagonist is the Sith Lord Darth Sidious (Ian McDiarmid). Gunray, like most Neimoidians, is paranoid, cowardly, and greedy.

In The Phantom Menace, Gunray blockade the planet Naboo from trade route. After a failed attempt to kill the Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) and Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson), Gunray meets with Naboo's Queen, Padmé Amidala (Natalie Portman), and feigns ignorance. Gunray orders the droid OOM-9 to find the Jedi, but the droid fails.

Gunray's forces eventually take Theed, the capital city of Naboo, with only the native Gungan eluding him. The invasion sets in motion the events which bring Senator Palpatine to power and lead to the Battle of Naboo.
