During the Clone Wars, Zarbon saw several different battles between the clones and the Separatists. Sometimes wildlife would be disturbed or destroyed during these battles. Perhaps one of the most significent events that occured on Zarbon was when the Separatists hid some of the Republic's critical battle plans on there. The Republic then sent a clone squad to retrieve the plans, which they did. But the clone's escape ships were destroyed and they then had to find a new way off the planet before the droids found the battle plans. If the droids found these plans it could tip the scale of the war toward the Separatists. The fate of the Republic hung in the balance of this battle on Zarbon.
