Main Characters

Anakin Skywalker
File:AnakinCW1a 323.jpg

 Voiced by: Matt Lanter

The main hero and eventually villain of the Star Wars saga.

  • Ace Pilot
  • Adaptation Distillation: He's much more likable here.
  • Aggressive Negotiations: The trope namer.
  • Anti-Hero: In Season 4, when his aggressive tendencies become more prominent, he starts slipping into a Type II or III.
  • Badass
  • Bash Brothers: With Obi-Wan and Ahsoka.
  • Berserk Button: Do not threaten Ahsoka, Obi-Wan, R2 or Padmé. Also, for the love of the Force, do not threaten a slave in front of him.
  • Blue Eyes
    • Eyes of Gold: In "Ghosts of Mortis", when he briefly turns to the dark side and in the Zygerrian arc, where his eyes turn Sith gold for certain scenes.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Did We Just Have Tea with Cthulhu?: The Father, embodiment of the Balance of the Force, having Anakin as a guest on a stormy night.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Taming the Daughter and the Son, embodiments of the Light and Dark Sides of the Force simultaneously certainly counts.
  • A Father to His Men: Inverted. He's pretty caring towards Rex and Ahsoka, but he usually comes up with reckless plans that send both of them into serious danger. Then again, given they are in the middle of war, his plans could be argued as the lesser of two evils: he doesn't send his men into situations he knows they won't survive.
    • He also leads from the front and seems unwilling to order his men to do anything he wouldn't do himself.
  • Go Mad From the Revelation: He didn't take the vision of his future well.
  • Indy Ploy: Most of his plans.

 Rex: What's our plan of attack, sir?

Anakin: Follow me.

  • Overprotective Master: Played with. Usually he has no problem with bringing Ahsoka into a combat situation, since it is part of her training after all (and he's usually there to keelhaul anything that so much as thinks of killing her). But, when a mission is so dangerous that even he overthinks every plan going into it, he justifiably wants her to stay out of it.
  • Papa Wolf: Don't endanger Ahsoka's life. Unless you're either massively suicidal.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red to Obi-Wan's Blue.
  • Voice of the Legion: In "Overlords", when he controls the Son and the Daughter.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Obi-Wan, but the vitriol is definitely of a deadpan variety.

Obi-Wan Kenobi
File:Obi-wan-CW-tl 250 3330.jpg

 Voiced by: James Arnold Taylor

Anakin's former master and his best friend. Has a reputation as "The Negotiator" on the battlefield.

 Obi-Wan: That's your plan? Just fly in there, land, hope they don't spot us, and walk in the door?

Anakin: Basically.

Obi-Wan: Oh, brilliant. Let's get going.

    • Also:

 Obi-Wan: You seem a bit on edge.

Anakin: There's a good chance that we're about to destroy all life on this planet, including ours and the senator's. So yes, I'm a bit on edge! Why aren't you?

Obi-Wan: (shrugs) I'm better at hiding it.

  • Enemy Mine: Teams up with Asajj Ventress to fight Darth Maul and Savage Opress, in the season 4 finale.
  • Friendly Sniper: As Rako Hardeen. From the man who refers to blasters as "Uncivilized".
  • Not So Different: To Anakin, given that both of them have politicians for love interests. Anakin really enjoys pointing this one out.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Anakin's Red.
  • Snark Knight: He could be the poster boy of the trope.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Anakin, but it's the deadpan type of vitriol.

Ahsoka Tano
File:Ahsoka 2a 6373.jpg

 Voiced by: Ashley Eckstein

Anakin's Padawan. She is initially foisted on him without his consent, but they soon develop a rapport, helped by their similar personalities.

Senator Padme Amidala
File:Padme1b 7199.jpg

 Voiced by: Catherine Taber

C-3PO
File:C-3PO 1b 2825.jpg

 Voiced by: Anthony Daniels

R2-D2
File:R2-D2 1b 7077.jpg


Jedi order

Yoda
File:Yoda 1b 8501.jpg

 Voiced by: Tom Kane

Mace Windu
File:MaceWindu 1a 7931.png

  Voiced by: T.C. Carson

  • Badass: Among the Jedi, second only to Yoda.
    • According to the Expanded Universe, Mace Windu's skill is beyond that of Yoda's in terms of dueling, due to Mace's own unique style of lightsaber combat.
  • Bald of Awesome
  • Bald Black Leader Guy: Technically outranked by Yoda, Mace is the most assertive and dominant personality in the Council, with Yoda seemingly content to let Mace run the show.
  • One-Man Army: While not as exaggerated here as in the other show, Mace is on par with Yoda in his ability to devastate Separatist infantry as seen in the Ryloth arc.
  • Scary Black Man: His implacable nature and fierce disposition are such that in the Ryloth arc, Dooku ordered Wat Tambor and his army to retreat rather than face Windu.

Plo Koon
File:PloKoon 1a 7913.jpg

 Voiced by: James Arnold Taylor

  • Ace Pilot
  • A Father to His Men
  • Author Appeal: He is one of the Jedi Masters that makes the most appearances. According to Lucas, he's Dave Filoni's favorite character.
    • Lucas even joked that if it was up to Dave, Plo Koon would appear in every episode.
  • Cool Mask: His breathing mask.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: "Ko-toh-ya" is a Kel'dor greeting he and Ahsoka uses towards eachother.
  • Parental Substitute: To Ahsoka.
  • Gandalf in Space: According to Dave Filoni.
  • Starfish Language: Averted, in his premier episode the creators originally planned him to be speaking on his native language, but ultimately decided against it, as the episode was rather dialoge heavy.

Luminara Unduli

 Voiced by: Olivia d'Abo

  • Action Girl
  • Badass in Distress: Happened to her twice.
    • The first time was in "Cloak of Darkness", where she has at a disadvantage against Ventress and needed Ahsoka to win.
    • The second time was in "Legacy of Terror", where she got kidnapped by Geonosian Zombies and needed to be rescued by Anakin.
  • The Stoic

Barriss Offee

 Voiced by: Meredith Salenger

  • Action Girl
  • Blue Eyes
  • Can't Catch Up: To Anakin. She first met Anakin when he was a Padawan. She still is one while he has since become a Knight and gained his own Padawan.
  • Distressed Damsel: A rather epic subversion. Ahsoka had to save Barriss's life... when Barriss was overtaken by a Geonosian zombie-worm and trying to kill Ahsoka.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Ahsoka's Red. She even has the eye and lightsaber colors to match!
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The girly girl to Ahsoka's tomboy.

Ki Adi Mundi

 Voiced by: Brian George

Kit Fisto

 Voiced by: Phil LaMarr

Aayla Secura

 Voiced by: Jennifer Hale

Qui-Gon Jinn

 Voiced by: Liam Neeson

Pong Krell

 Voiced by: Dave Fennoy

  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: Summary of his strategy.
  • Dual-Wielding: With double-bladed lightsabers.
  • Evil All Along: Having foreseen the Republic's eventual collapse, he intends to defect to the Sith. In hindsight, all of his idiot strategies make sense.
  • Evil Is Hammy: When he reveals where his true loyalties lay, he does it with a big, hammy speech.
  • Evil Sounds Deep
  • Expendable Clone: What he thinks of the clones.
  • Face Heel Turn
  • Fantastic Racism: He treats clones with nothing but utter contempt.
  • For the Evulz: He manipulated his clones into being slaughtered, and into killing their own comrades "because I could". Even if it was part of his plan to defect to the Sith, he obviously enjoyed the clones' deaths.
  • General Failure: The way he commands, you'd think he's trying to lose. He was.
  • General Ripper
  • I Fight for the Strongest Side: He fights for those he believes will win. When he foresaw the fall of the Jedi, he decided to betray the Republic.
  • Informed Ability: Said to be a highly successful military strategist, but mostly just gives orders that seem intended to get as many clones killed as possible. Not surprisingly, he's also stated to have the record for highest clone casualty rate. It is later revealed that Krell truly is a brilliant strategist: all of his battle plans were intended to kill as many clones as possible.
  • Karmic Death: At the hand of Dogma, the one clone who was utterly loyal to him out of duty.
  • Killed Mid-Sentence: Dogma shoots Krell right in the middle of his Hannibal Lecture to Rex.
  • Killed Off for Real
  • Large Ham: From the start. Once Krell reveals himself to be a traitor, he makes his world even hammier by delivering every line with as much malice and smug superiority as he can, with a few evil laughs thrown in for good measure.
  • Lightning Bruiser
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous
  • The Neidermeyer: Even before he was revealed to have been evil all along, the clones hated him.
  • Smug Snake
  • Token Jerk Teammate: He treats his clone troopers worse than any Jedi so far. Revealed to indeed be evil.

Jar Jar Binks

 Voiced by: Ahmed Best/B.J. Hughes

Boss Lyonie

 Voiced by: Ahmed Best

  • Identical Stranger: He looks exactly like Jar Jar with a Boss Hat and even has the same voice actor.

Chewbacca


Separatists

Count Dooku/Darth Tyrannus

 Voiced by: Corey Burton

General Grievious

 Voiced by: Matthew Wood

  • Bad Boss: Hates the battle droids under his command, deeming them useless (who can blame him?) and regularly destroys and abuses them when he loses his temper. On one occasion, he even throws one from an escape pod in order to save himself.
  • Body Horror: Only his head and heart are still organic. Judging from The Un-Reveal below, it's obvious his face is probably mutilated too.
  • Combat Pragmatist
  • Dirty Coward
  • The Dragon: With Ventress' abandonment and Savage's betrayal, Grievous has now become one to Dooku.
  • Dual-Wielding: Times two.
  • Evil Is Hammy: What the good general may lack in dueling skill, he makes up for in evil delivery.
  • Firing One-Handed: How he uses his blaster.
  • Four-Star Badass: He's one of the highest ranking Separatist military leaders.
  • General Ripper: Definitely.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Grievous is at his deadliest when he busts out all four arms; then he can hold his own against top tier Jedi.
  • Took a Level In Badass: In "Grievous Intrigue". He defeats a Jedi Master, predicts Obi-Wan's entire battle plan (doesn't quite work, but he gets points for cleverness), fights his way through two more Masters, and a legion of clones in order to escape, and manages to flee Saleucami while under fire and despite Obi-Wan's attempts to stop him, laughing as he escapes.
    • He took another in "Massacre", where he defeats Ventress and utterly destroys the Nightsisters.
  • The Un-Reveal: His face.

Asajj Ventress

  Voiced by: Nika Futterman

Savage Opress

  Voiced by: Clancy Brown

  • Anti-Villain: Type I/Type II. Savage didn't choose to be evil, and most of his evil acts were undertaken while he was brainwashed, leaving the degree of control he had over his actions ambiguous. Even the moral of his debut episode lampshades this particular quality:

  "Evil is not born. It is taught."

  • Brainwashed and Crazy
  • Body Horror: During Savage's transformation, you can hear his bones cracking as they expand, and his horns visibly extend from his skull.
  • Curb Stomp Battle: He tears clone troopers apart like tissue paper and slaughters two Jedi with little more difficulty.
  • Determinator: He's half-dead before he finally runs from a losing fight in "Witches of the Mist".
  • The Dog Bites Back: He pays back Dooku and Ventress for their abuse and torture by throttling them both. Had they not escaped, he would have done a lot more.
  • The Dragon: Briefly, to Dooku, and even more briefly, to Ventress.
    • He now appears to be acting as one to Darth Maul.
  • Evil Makeover: One of the more extreme cases: The Nightsisters' ritual causes Savage to get much bigger physically, elongates his horns, and gives him inhuman strength.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: His voice gets deeper following his transformation. It helps that he's voiced by Clancy Brown.
  • Expy: To Darth Maul both in and out of universe. In fact, they're brothers.
  • If You're So Evil Eat This Kitten: His last test of brainwashed loyalty was to kill his brother. He hesitates, but ultimately obeys.
  • Lightning Bruiser
  • Names to Run Away From Really Fast: Seems to be a family tradition.
  • Neck Snap: How he kills his brother, Feral. He does it with one hand.
  • Noble Demon: Before his transformation, Savage was a noble warrior who cared about his brother, even giving himself up to Ventress to protect Feral. Even after his transformation, Savage displays a great deal of loyalty to Darth Maul, a brother he's never even met, even strangling a local creature for taking advantage of Maul's condition instead of helping him.
  • Unskilled but Strong: Savage has little formal training, and, as Dooku says, "no technique", but he's so strong that he can destroy a dozen droids with a single Force wave, and a blow from him sends Dooku flying across a room.
  • Unwitting Pawn: He's fairly gullible, which has allowed others to manipulate him to their whims.

Osi Sobeck

  Voiced by: James Arnold Taylor

Riff Tamson

 Voiced by: Gary Anthony Williams

Bounty Hunters

Cad Bane

 Voiced by: Corey Burton

  • Badass Longcoat: He sports a very spiffy trench coat.
  • Badass Normal: He doesn't have any superhuman powers or abilities and still takes on Jedi. And wins.
  • Bald of Evil
  • Combat Pragmatist: The key to how he successfully battles Jedi Knights.
  • Crazy Prepared: His assault on the Galactic Senate is proof enough of this.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: When Obi-Wan, disguised as bounty hunter Rako Hardeen, aids in his escape from prison with a terrorist, Bane is quick to call attention to how convenient it was that he could bypass security so easily. He even tried to ditch Hardeen later, though it didn't take. Obi-Wan eventually manages to win a measure of trust out of him, insofar as Bane is no longer trying to off him. He's still suspicious, though.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He saves "Rako Hardeen" from dying in The Box, but only because Moralo Eval fixed the last challenge so he would lose, and Bane thought Hardeen at least deserved a fair fight.

 Cad Bane: If you're gonna kill him, do it like a man!

  • Guns Akimbo: His (initial) weapons of choice.
  • Amoral Bounty Hunters Like Swords: The laugh he lets out when he steals Vos' lightsaber and briefly duels Obi-Wan Kenobi with it is sheer "OMG this is so cool!"
  • Jet Boots
  • Nice Hat: A broad-rimmed fedora. Taken to extremes later on, where he insists on getting a new nice hat after losing his first one, even though it makes him stand out, then kills another bounty hunter for his fedora because it was nicer.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: He was based on Lee Van Cleef.


Aurra Sing

 Voiced by: Jaime King

Boba Fett

 Voiced by: Daniel Logan

  • Badass Normal: He's working his way up there; he's currently not quite at Cad Bane's level, but his later exploits in the Star Wars saga assure us that he's well on his way.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Curiously, he was perfectly willing to let a girl be sold into slavery as some warlord's bride, while Ventress couldn't go through with it. Though to his credit, he didn't seem to realise what the girl's brother wanted to do with her; he thought he was still "protecting" her from him.
  • Guns Akimbo
  • Revenge
  • Revenge Before Reason: Debatable, since Jango attacked Mace first.
  • Robot Buddy: His personal assassin droid, C-21 Highsinger, described by the creators as being to him what Chewbacca is to Han Solo.
  • Took a Level In Badass: As of "Bounty"; in stark contrast to his debut appearance, he now sports his own set of armor, guns down Kage warriors without hesitation, and leads a whole band of bounty hunters who are utterly loyal to him.
  • Young Gun
  • You Killed My Father

Embo

  Voiced by: Dave Filoni


Non-alignment

Hondo Ohnaka

 Voiced by: Jim Cummings

  • Affably Evil: During Anakin, Obi-Wan and Dooku's attempts to escape from his ship, Hondo remains his jovial self, insists that it's nothing personal, and that they can all go back to being friends once he has his money. He also has a little bit of a Pet the Dog moment when he convinces Boba to give up the hostage's location at Plo Koon's request.
  • Goggles Do Nothing
  • Nice Hat
  • Pet the Dog: For convincing Boba to give up the hostage's location.

Ziro The Hutt

 Voiced by: Corey Burton

Pre Viszla

 Voiced by: Jon Favreau

  • Badass Cape: Complete with dramatic removal prior to dueling Obi-Wan.
  • Badass Normal: Holds his own against a Jedi Master in a lightsaber fight without benefit of Force powers of his own (though this doesn't appear to be particularly unusual for Mandalorian warriors in the series). His ability to leap roughly his own height while wearing full body armor and a jetpack is rather impressive as well.
  • Bald of Evil: Starts rockin' the skinhead look in Season Four.
  • Blond Guys Are Evil: A minor case. He's certainly not as malicious as some of the other Seperatist-aligned characters and his being both blond and an antagonist is balanced out by the fact that almost all Mandalorians in the series are blond.
    • When he shows up in season four, he casually destroys a village, whose women he had kidnapped as servants, simply because they had the gall to demand their people back while asking him to leave. Incidentally, he "returned" the chief's daughter by reuniting them and then killing her.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Will not hesitate to kick, punch or use his jetpack to gain the edge in a fight.
  • Conspicuous CG: Of a sort given it's all CG anyway - compared to everything else, his darksaber looks very strange when activated and looks even more so when it's being waved around. But that's probably the point - to illustrate just how unusual the device is.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: His appearance and motivations seem intended to suggest Neo-Nazi parallels.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Gives Obi-Wan his lightsaber back so that they can fight more evenly.
    • Averted when he just planned to execute Ahsoka on the spot after he captured her. She didn't have her lightsabers at the time, but he didn't even give her a sporting chance.
  • Executive Meddling: Was originally meant to fight Obi-Wan with a vibro-sword modeled after those used by Mandalorians in the Knights of the Old Republic games. However, George Lucas mandated that it must have an energy blade to maintain the "special" status of lightsabers, resulting in what's essentially a KOTOR vibro-sword with a black Laser Blade.
  • Evil Versus Evil: He and Dooku have a falling out that leads to Viszla trying to locate and kill Dooku, and Dooku making Viszla an example of Scars Are Forever.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars
  • Impossibly Cool Weapon: Wields the Darksaber, a black, lightsaber-like power sword looted from the Jedi Temple centuries ago.
  • Jet Pack
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Dooku dismissed Death Watch as useless after a failed attempt to deal with Duchess Satine. Viszla even got a scar courtesy of Dooku (he doesn't explain exactly how he got it). Now he's dedicated to taking Dooku down.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: Essentially his entire reason for being involved with the CIS at all is disgust with Mandalorian society having distanced itself from its martial heritage.
  • You Have Failed Me: Shoots one of his own men for failing to kill Obi-Wan and Satine.

Bo-Katan

  Voiced by: Katee Sackhoff

Lux Bonteri

 Voiced by: Jason Spisak

  • Dating Catwoman: He's the son of a Separatist leader, who's attracted to Ahsoka. And that is his one purpose so far. He might Grow the Beard and get some Character Development in Season 4, however.
    • In the season four episode "A Friend in Need", he leaves the Separatists and joins Death Watch of all things, thinking they can help him get revenge on Dooku for his mother's murder. Once their methods prove too ruthless, however, he just goes rogue.
  • Genre Blindness: He thought Viszla and Death Watch were honorable and just, despite knowing their reputation and witnessing their remorseless use of droids for target practice. Even when he learns they've kidnapped local women for use as servants, he still refuses to see the truth. It takes them burning down the native village to knock some sense into him.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Killing his mother didn't do much for Lux's loyalty to the Separatists.

Mother Talzin

 Voiced by: Barbara Goodson

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: She's shown to be a force to be reckoned with when Grievous invades Dathomir.
  • The Chessmaster: She effortlessly sets various individuals against each other throughout the Nightsisters trilogy.
  • Evil Mentor: To Ventress.
  • Token Wholesome: Compared to the other Nightsisters.
  • Squishy Wizard: As mentioned above, she is really powerful, but prefer to focus on supporting her sisters through her magic. Most notably, she tortures Dooku with a deadly and painful spell and a voodoo doll, threatening to destroy him if he does not withdraw his forces. But when Grievous finds and attacks her, she turns intangible and escapes.
  • Voice of the Legion

Darth Maul

 Voiced by: Sam Witwer

  • Body Horror: Having lost his entire lower body hasn't done wonders for him. His horns have tripled in length, veins are visible all over his body, and his missing lower body is replaced with a crude, spider-like apparatus (basically, he looks like a mechanical Drider). He eventually gets a more functional pair of mechanical legs to replace the latter.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: His appearance in Mother Talzin's crystal ball.
  • Evil Mentor: He's been set up as one for Savage.
  • Eyes of Gold
  • Half the Man He Used To Be: It didn't stick.
  • Handicapped Badass: Even with his mechanical legs, he is quite a capable fighter, even incorporating some of his classic acrobatic moves.
  • He's Back: Takes a while for him to regain his composure, though.
  • Laughing Mad: And crying sometimes, too.
  • Revenge: Seeks revenge on Obi-Wan for defeating him on Naboo.

  Darth Maul: I was apprenticed to the most powerful being in the galaxy once. I was destined to be... so much more. But I was robbed of that destiny by the Jedi. By Obi-Wan Kenobi...

  • Not Quite Dead: Obi-Wan bisected him at the waist, but it didn't keep Maul down.
  • The Power of Hate: He only survived his bifurcation due to his raw hatred for Obi-Wan.
  • Sanity Slippage: He's downright animalistic when Savage finally finds him. He only manages to hold on to a semblance of clarity once he focuses on getting revenge. Being cut in half will do that to you.
  • Shout-Out: His design (elongated horns, no shirt, circlet around the neck, cybernetic lower body) seems to be an homage to his appearance in the non-canon comic "Old Wounds". Once he switches to his second pair of cybernetic legs, he actually becomes nearly identical to that design: only his horns were returned to their normal length.
    • Also, the way he draws his lightsaber just before the Raydonia massacre is just like when Anakin slaughters younglings in Revenge of the Sith.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Strongly implied to have butchered numerous young children to attract the attention of the Jedi.
