* TheScrappy: [[InvokedTrope Intended as such]], [[MisaimedFandom but the fans seem to disagree]]. The Comic Irregulars have stated that, in addition to redeeming Jar-Jar, they wanted to take one of the most beloved characters and make the fans hate him.

* DeadpanSnarker: Thanks to his partner's insane antics.
* DumpStat: [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0749.html Jim revealed]] that he made Chewbacca high in everything he perceived as dump stats. The result of this is that Chewbacca is not only able to speak but is in fact quite eloquent and refined.
* TheExile: Supporting Yoda during the war lead to his having to leave home, and working with Greedo.
* GenreSavvy: In [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0778.html Episode 778]], this is how he deals with Pete, in place of [[spoiler:"Let the Wookie win." He puts a cursed coin in the pouch of his own character in TabletopGames just so that KleptomaniacHero types who would kill him for his own loot would get the curse in return, needing for them to bargain with him for resurrection just to get rid of it.]]
** In [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0806.html Episode 806]], while pretending to be prisoner, he deliberately loosens his restraints in anticipation of a possible martial engagement.
* HypercompetentSidekick: More competent than "Greedo"/Han, at least. The two seem to get along most of the time, though Chewbacca does occasionally get annoyed when his partner does something stupid, like [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0755.html thoughtlessly lowering their remuneration]].
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: When played by Which makes his briefing on the GM, he's like this constantly. attack against the Death Star almost impossible to understand. Ben loosens up on it slightly.
* TheUnintelligible: Surprisingly, [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0749.html averted]].

* AcePilot: Of the ''Millennium Falcon'', apparently.
* BaitAndSwitch: Since Greedo is [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0112.html killed]] by Anakin in an AccidentalMurder, the actual Greedo in Episode IV is given the name Han Solo, who is faced with "Greedo" (Jim as the original Han Solo) in the bar at Mos Eisley.
* CoolStarship: The ''Millennium Falcon'', before it is... [[DeadPersonImpersonation acquired]] by "Greedo".

* VillainousFriendship: Seemingly with Jabba the Hutt.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: According to Jabba the Hutt (which is why "Greedo" was able to impersonate him despite looking nothing like him).

[[folder:Jabba]]
!!Jabba the Hutt

A crime lord who is friendlier than in the movies.
----
* AffablyEvil: Jabba seems to be rather friendly in his ''New Hope'' appearance. Then again, he didn't know about "Greedo"'s DeadPersonImpersonation as of yet.
* FamousLastWords: Invoked, by him, but ultimately he's unable to come up with anything before he dies.
* IWouldSayIfICouldSay: As a RunningGag, ''every'' strip with him in it has him use an expression before realizing it doesn't apply to him literally. Usually in the form of "[expression]. Well, [corrected expression]."
** Except in one instance, where he actually ''is'' what he's saying.
* NoSell: Thanks to his food being soaked in midichlorians, he's immune to the Force.
* SeriousBusiness: Interpretive dance. Jabba drops Oola in the Sarlaac pit for a minor violation.
* VillainousFriendship: Seemingly with the original Han Solo.
* WickedCultured: A deliberately decadent version. Boba calls him an aesthete.
