What happens if some douche Sith Lord cuts off a Twi'lek's lekku (headtails)? Does the impact kill them?

well i know it doesn't kill them... the wiki does say they are very sensative and grabing one hard could incapacitate a Twi;lek from the pain and that major damage could cause lasting brain damage... tho there are a few in canon who have had one severed and lived.. Alema Rar had one almost completely loped off and lived.. tho she was rather crazy but that started before it happened

Teamwork is essential; it gives the enemy other people to shoot at.

The main character of the video game: Fatal Alliance also had only one lekku, the other was robotic.

It's been real but the game just wasn't worth the sub for me anymore.

No. It just hurts a lot.

Absurd amounts of pain doesn't kill humans... It's just the nerve endings going 'OH HEY, SOMETHING BAD IS HAPPENING TO YOU, TRY NOT TO DO THIS IN THE FUTURE.' This is true with just about anything that causes pain... Burns, cuts, venom... All the body's way of saying 'Don't mess with this again, because I will scream at you for damaging me.'

Twi'lek with headtail amputations probably feel a tad 'numb' to the world with their sensory organ removed, but the certainly don't die from the sensation.

Best post ever.

Here is another Twi question. Why do males have normal ears and females have bumps?
Zoran - Bounty Hunter
Wounded man: Please don't kill me. I'm worth more alive.
Zoran: You're worth enough dead.

Because in Return of the Jedi, Bib Fortuna had Ears, and Oola had bumps. First examples of Twi'lek in Star Wars.

On that note, why do no male Twi'leks have that weird thing under their chin like Bib had? Was he just deformed?

Well, he didn't seem to be the most attractive Twi'lek around...
