!! Count Dooku/Darth Tyranus
[[quoteright:340:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Count_Dooku_Clones_Wars_6164.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:340:"The Sith control everything. You just don't know it."]]
--> Voiced by: Creator/CoreyBurton [[TheOtherDarrin in the TV series]], ChristopherLee in TheMovie

A former Jedi Master, Dooku left the Order after his former apprentice Qui-Gon Jinn was killed on Naboo. In front of the public he took on the facade of an idealist politican, who went on a crusade against the corrupt and incompetent Republic, seeking to built a better state. However, secretly, Dooku joined Darth Sidious and became his apprentice, seeking to overthrow the Republic, exterminating the Jedi and conquering the Galaxy for the Sith.

* AdaptationalBadass: He's by no means un-badass in the movies, but he gets to show it a lot more in the series.
* AristocratsAreEvil: He's the Count of Serenno, and the current Sith apprentice.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: He's a nobleman and the political leader of the Separatists as well as one of the galaxy's deadliest fighters.
* BadBoss: Ventress found this one out the hard way. Although, in Dooku's defense, he betrayed her only reluctantly, on Sidious' order.
* {{Badass}}: He defeated Ventress and the two best warriors of the Nightsisters clan while blinded by a poison. In his ''pyjamas'', no less
* BadassBaritone: Per usual for both Christopher Lee and Corey Burton.
* BadassBeard
* BadassCape
* BadassGrandpa: He's one of the oldest characters in the show and, perhaps unsurprisingly, one of the toughest.
* BadassInCharge: Of the Confederacy of Independant Systems. Sidious may be Dooku's master, but the Count is still the unquestioned leader of the Separatists.
* BadassInDistress: In the appropriately titled "Dooku Captured" and its follow-up episode "Gungan General".
* BadassTeacher: To Ventress, and later, to Savage.
* BastardUnderstudy: It's in the job description for being the Sith apprentice.
* BeardOfEvil
* BigBad: Subverted. The protagonists (and many of the antagonists) believe him to be this, but Dooku is only TheDragon and an UnwittingPawn for Darth Sidious.
* ContemplativeBoss: He usually receives his subordinates with his back turned to them, but he often turns around and looks at them sometime during the conversation.
* CrypticBackgroundReference: Apparently Dooku and Mother Talzin have a history with each other, but the only things revealed are that Dooku had helped Talzin once "long ago", and apparently gave a lock of his hair to her as part of some sort of deal.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: While training Savage, Dooku refused to tell his apprentice how to defend against Force lightning (although he implied that, if the training had continued, he would have done so eventually). This wound up saving the Count's life when Savage betrayed him.
--> '''Dooku''': A wise master does not reveal all his secrets at once.
* DeadpanSnarker: On occasion. Dooku's wit is nothing if not dry.
* TheDragon: He's Sidious' top subordinate.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: Well being the Sith apprentice means that one day, he'd have to try to usurp Sidious, but the first time he really considered turning against his Master, was when he got Savage as a replacement for Ventress.
* EvilCanNotComprehendGood[=/=]GenreBlindness: In the Nightsisters trilogy, he assumes that Ventress' assassination attempt against him was the work of the Jedi. As a former Jedi himself, Dooku should have realised that they do not deal in assassinations. Whether this is an instance of Dooku's own corruption by the dark side, or a simple lapse in judgment, is ambiguous.
* EvilMentor: To Ventress and, briefly, Savage.
* EvilSoundsDeep: He ''is'' voiced by Creator/CoreyBurton using his ChristopherLee voice.
* FallenHero: He was once a legendary Jedi, Yoda's Padawan, and Qui-Gon Jinn's master.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He's always soft spoken, even while insulting someone, and has no qualms against forcing women and children into slave labour.
* TheHeavy: Dooku's actions drive the plot while Sidious plots from behind the scenes.
* HeroKiller: In the third issue of "Son of Dathomir", [[spoiler:he kills Jedi Master Tiplee]].
* IWantThemAlive: He ordered Savage to bring Katuunko to him alive. Dooku was displeased, to say the least, when all Savage returned with was the king's corpse.
* KickTheDog: Killing [[TokenGoodTeammate loyal Separatist senators that truly wanted a peaceful end to the war]] such as Mina Bonteri and Bec Lawise (by means of forcing Padme to [[ShootYourMate shoot him]] when she tried to shoot Dooku) can be seen as this.
* KlingonPromotion: Wants one desperately. Confirmed during the Savage Opress arc.
* LaserBlade
* ManipulativeBastard: Shown to be one in the Rush Clovis arc when he forces Clovis into a DealWithTheDevil situation that results in war coming Scipio, [[spoiler: Clovis's death and control of the Banking Clan falling to Palpatine]].
* MasterSwordsman: He's fighting style is based on fencing.
* MeaningfulName[=/=]NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast:
** "Dooku" is similar to the Japanese word "doku", which means "venom.
** His Sith name "Tyranus" means well... "tyrant" in Latin.
* MoralMyopia: He sought revenge against Ventress and the Nightsisters for their attempt to assassinate him, disregarding that it was his own (albeit reluctant) attempted murder against Ventress that inspired the attacks.
* OldMaster: A villainous example.
* NeckSnap: In a brutally epic fashion to one of Hondo's pirates.
* ShockAndAwe: He can and likes to use Force lightning against his enemies.
* ShootTheDangerousMinion: Sidious ordered him to kill Ventress, because he was worried Dooku would use her to turn against him.
* TheStarscream: Seeks to overthrow Sidious and become the new Dark Lord of the Sith. [[DoomedByCanon He doesn't quite succeed]].
* TheStoic: He very rarely shows his emotions and even when he does, he usually keeps how much he shows well under control.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: On occasion, when he taps deeply into the dark side, most notably in "Witches of the Mist", when he blasts Savage with Force lightning.
* UndyingLoyalty: He claimed this towards Darth Sidious in "Nightsisters", and we're given no indication beforehand that he was anything but truthful. Sidious, however, demands proof of this loyalty, and orders Dooku to eliminate Ventress, which, ironically, inspires Dooku to train his next apprentice, Savage Opress, to help him overthrow Sidious.
* UnwittingPawn: And again to Darth Sidious. He won't find this out until Episode III, however.
* VillainTeamUp: As of the third issue of "Son of Dathomir", he appears to have done this with [[spoiler:Darth Maul and Mother Talzin]].
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: So much so, that he's able to pose as the BigGood for the public of the Separatist Alliance worlds.
* WickedCultured: He mostly acts like a gentleman, but nonetheless, he's just as sociopathic as his master.
* WorthyOpponent: Considered Obi-Wan this after he successfully foiled his attempt to kidnap Palpatine ''twice'' in one day.
* WouldHurtAChild: He tried to kill Rotta the Huttlet in the pilot movie, and is more than willing to sentence women and children to work camps beside.
* YouHaveFailedMe: To Ventress, albeit somewhat reluctantly.

!! General Grievous
[[quoteright:340:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/swcw2gg3_8994.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:340:"Listen to me, Jedi. I do not care about your politics. I do not care about your Republic. I only live to see you die!"]]
--> Voiced by: Matthew Wood

* [[GeneralFailure Admiral Failure]]: Probably because he is a general and more used to ground combat, his forays into fleet command tend to be much less successful. In a more general sense, he's also a fairly poor tactician, and pulls a ScrewThisImOuttaHere whenever things go marginally pear-shaped, but this was more the case in Season 1.
** From Season 2 onward, he started [[TookALevelInBadass showing a little more tactical brilliance both in ground and fleet command]]. In "Grievous Intrigue", he predicted Obi-Wan's entire battle plan for rescuing Eeth Koth and in "ARC Troopers", he deliberately sacrificed the frigates in his fleet so the debris carrying the Trident drill ship components could fall into Kamino's oceans (although how much of that plan is his is debatable considering he was also working with Asajj Ventress during the battle).
* BadBoss: Hates the battle droids under his command, deeming them useless (not hard to see why, though) and regularly destroys or abuses them whenever he loses his temper.
* {{Badass}}: Grievous may be a coward, but there's no doubt that he's a skilled warrior.
* BadassBiker: He rides a pretty cool looking speeder bike in "Bound for Rescue".
* BadassBoast: The caption quote.
* BadassCape: Which he usually [[TheCoatsAreOff removes]] before fighting.
* BadassTransplant: The mechanical version. Aside from his head and some internal organs, his entire body has been cybernetically augmented, making him far more dangerous, than either the usual droids, or most organic being.
* BloodKnight: According to him, his only reason for being involved in the war is to kill Jedi.
* BodyHorror: Only his head and heart are still organic. Judging from TheUnReveal below, it's obvious that his face is probably mutilated, too. If you go by the [[MultipleChoicePast modification backstory]], it's also self-inflicted.
* CombatPragmatist: He's not above shooting a Jedi while he has their lightsabers in a BladeLock.
* CoolPet: His cyborg roggwart, Gor, a large horned lizard-like monster similar to a [[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi rancor]] living in his castle on Vassek. He didn't survive when the Jedi infiltrated his castle.
* CurbStompBattle: He has his moments:
** During their first duel in Season 1, he effortlessly defeated Ahsoka, who escaped only because Griveous got distracted for a moment by an explosion. She put up a better fight during their rematch in Season 5, but Grievous still bested her rather easily.
** Although Ventress gained the upper hand in their one-on-one duel in "Massacre", after he had her shot by his droid army, he tore apart the other Nightsisters and their ArmyOfTheDead with ease.
* {{Cyborg}}: His entire body is mechanical, only his head, and some of of internal organs remained from his original body.
* DirtyCoward: He has a tendency to boast about how he's superior to whoever is his current opponent, and then use cheap tactics or retreat when the tables are turned.
* TheDragon: With Ventress' abandonment and Savage's betrayal, Grievous has now become this to Dooku.
* DualWielding: Times two.
* EvilSoundsDeep
* FourStarBadass: He's one of the highest ranking Separatist military leaders.
* FiringOneHanded: How he uses his blaster.
* FrontLineGeneral
* GeneralRipper: Definitely.
* GutturalGrowler
* HeroKiller: Not to the extent of his ''[[WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars Clone Wars]]'' appearance, but Grievous is still a serious threat to the Jedi.
** Notably, Jedi Knight Nahdar Vebb in "Lair of Grievous" and General Roos Tarpals in "Shadow Warrior".
* ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne: Subverted in "Grievous Intrigue". When facing him, Eeth Koth called Grievous, a "coward and murderer". Usually one would expect for the villain to be insulted by being called a coward. Grievous instead took issue with being dubbed a murderer, stating that he didn't "ridding the galaxy of you Jedi filth" to be murder.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: The Nightsisters are a culture of vicious misandrists who feel free to abuse, brainwash, and even kill the male Nightbrothers whenever they please. Given that, many fans rooted for Grievous and the battle droids as they mercilessly killed them during "Massacre".
* LargeHam: He tends to be rather dramatic.
--> '''Grievous''': '''YOU WILL NEVER DEFEAT GRIEVOUS!'''
* LaserBlade: Either two or four at once.
* LightningBruiser
* MasterSwordsman: The only ones who've held their own against him without resorting to using the Force are Kit Fitso and Ventress.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Grievous is at his deadliest when he uses all four arms; then he can hold his own against top-tier Jedi.
* NeckSnap: Does it to a clone trooper in "Bound for Rescue", with his foot no less.
* NoIndoorVoice: Although, to be fair, his voice is so grating and deep that even if he ''were'' speaking at a normal volume, it would still come across as rather loud.
* PetTheDog: He seemed genuinely saddened and enraged when he learned that his pet, Gor was killed by Kit Fisto and Nahdar Vebb.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: He used to be a Kaleesh warlord before he became the cyborg general.
* PsychoForHire: He may not get paid for what he does, but his involvement with the Confederacy is just an excuse for him to kill Jedi, and he enjoys it a little too much if the image quote is any indication. At least, this is what he's like [[FallenHero post-reconstruction]].
* TheRival: He has a lasting enmity with Obi-Wan that borders on this trope. Obi-Wan even invoked it "Griveous Intrigue" when he was certain that Grievous would board his ship and face him personally rather than simply blow him up with his ship.
* RousingSpeech: PlayedForLaughs, when he gives one to a bunch of ''droids'' designed for suicide-bombing. He even explicitly tells them that [[GoYeHeroesGoAndDie none of them will be coming back]].
* SmugSnake: Played with. He tends to be overconfident about his own abilities and boast at his enemies before being defeated in combat and/or forced to flee or pull a fast one on his enemies, but every now and then, he gets his own victories and shows some instances of tactical brilliance.
* TookALevelInBadass: In "Grievous Intrigue". He defeats Eeth Koth, 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 and his droid forces decimate the Nightsisters (aside from a minor setback against Ventress).
** And another in "Bound for Rescue", where he defeated Obi-Wan in a space battle, then one-on-one in a duel.
** Yet another in the first issue of the "Son of Dathomir" comic adaptation, where he [[spoiler:trounces ''Darth Maul'', of all people, in both the overall battle and one-to-one combat.]]
* TheUnreveal: In "Lair of Grievous" his mask had to be replaced by a new one. As the doctor-droid started the remove it, it seemed that his real face would be revealed, but the scene cut to the Jedi, and when we next see the General, he already has a new mask on.
* VillainousRescue: Though he's rescuing another villain, he does save Count Dooku's life from Mother Talzin in "Massacre".
* WhiteMaskOfDoom
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: His backstory makes him one, as well as a FallenHero.
* WouldHitAGirl: Definitely. Would also commit genocide against an entire clan of females.
* WouldHurtAChild: He had several Padawan braids among his trophies in "Lair of Grievous", and relished the idea of killing the younglings and adding their newly-built lightsabers to his collection in "A Necessary Bond".

!! Admiral Trench
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Trench-001_1319.jpg]]
--> Voiced by: Creator/DeeBradleyBaker

* CardCarryingVillain: Oh, so much:
--> '''Trench:''' I smell fear... and it smells good.
--> '''Trench:''' (to Anakin) Turn back now, retreat while you can, or [[PunctuatedForEmphasis I. Am Your.]] [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom Doom]]!
* {{Cyborg}}: He became one after his ship was destroyed over Christophsis. Replacement parts include ArtificialLimbs, an [[ElectronicEyes Electronic Eye]], a replacement mandible, what looks like a mechanical neck brace and some replacement skin for half his face.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The guy figured out a way to hit ''cloaked'' ships, while they were invisible to both sensors and to the eye. He also knew that the Jedi will engage him if he attacked civilians on the planet he was blockading, deduced that the cloaked ship was flown by a Jedi, and that said Jedi (Anakin) will attack him again. He lost only because he saw through Anakin's BatmanGambit mere ''seconds'' too late.
** In "The Unknown", he realized something was wrong with Tup and [[ManchurianAgent was not like any other previous instances of clones turning on the Jedi]].
* TheDreaded: Even Yularen thought that engaging him would be suicide.
* ExtraEyes: Four of them, for a total of six. He later gets one of those eyes replaced.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: His last moment before the impact of his own rockets is [[GracefulLoser a quiet acceptance of his defeat]]. However, he somehow survived it.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: He gains a few on his face in "The Unknown", possibly from the fireball in "Cat and Mouse".
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Both literally ''and'' metaphorically. He had rockets locked on the magnetic signature of Anakin's cloaked ship, just like he did numerous times before. Except since [[HandWave usually]] "[[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack no ship that small]] [[ContinuityNod has a cloaking device]]", he failed to calculate the difference of size, speed and maneuverability compared to his earlier experiences with cloaked cruisers, allowing Anakin to lead the rockets right back into his flagship's defenseless bridge. Luckily for him, he survived.
* LargeHam: He puts plenty of emphasis in his lines during his first appearance. He's not quite as hammy after he gets reconstructed.
* LivingLegend: Yularen was quite terrified at the thought of having him as an opponent again.
* MultiArmedMultitasking
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast
* NotQuiteDead: Invoked in his debut episode, as he was assumed to have died more than a decade earlier.
** He survived again when his ship was destroyed over Christophsis and was rebuilt as a cyborg.
* OhCrap: Had a moment for this before his own rockets blew him and his ship to smithereens.
* OutGambitted: Anakin pulled a BatmanGambit on him.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Even his [[ElectronicEyes replacement eye]] following his cybernetic reconstruction is red, now with the addition of [[GlowingMechanicalEyes glowing]].
* SpiderPeople: Subverted, as he's not centaurid, but bipedal with extra arms instead of legs.
* StarterVillain: If you take the chronological order of the series into account, he's technically the first villain fought in the series. This is subverted in that not only did he first appear in Season 2, he's actually more threatening (and higher rank) than most of the Separatist commanders that chronologically came after him (at least in the early seasons) and [[NotQuiteDead he comes back later]].
* TheStrategist
* TwoFaced: Half his face (and body) is covered with cybernetic implants after his reconstruction.
* UnexplainedRecovery: How he survived his apparent death in "Cat and Mouse" is given no explanation (being caught in an explosion and exposed to the vacuum of space), but given the extent of his cybernetics, he did not survive unscathed.
* VerbalTic: He tends to click his fangs a lot, usually between or mid-sentence.
* VillainOfTheWeek: He seemingly died at the end of his debut episode. Averted after he was revealed to have survived the events of said episode.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: What happened to him during the Ringo Vinda campaign after the events of "The Unknown" remains unknown, but it can assumed he would have had a bigger role later on had the series not been unexpectedly canceled.
* WorthyOpponent: Considered Anakin to be one. He was right.

!! Viceroy Nute Gunray
--> Voiced by: Creator/TomKenny

* ArchEnemy: Of Padmé.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive
* DirtyCoward: He even admitted that, he would never put himself at risk, unless he has no other choise.
* EmptyPromise: He promised immediate aid for the starving Rodia, if Onaconda Farr helped him lure Padmé into a trap, and arrest her. After arriving to Rodia, he said that he'll put the matter of the aid on a debate, after Padmé's execution, the latter of which was not in the bargain.
* {{Greed}}: His main motivation in aligning with Dooku is the promise of welth.
* HeKnowsTooMuch: When he was captured by the Republic, Dooku sent Ventress to free him, or silence him, before the Jedi could make him talk.
* HypocriticalHumor: His admittance of cowardice comes off as this when you realize he already took an unnecessary risk in the first place just by being a CorruptCorporateExecutive.
-->'''Nute Gunray:''' All I know is I never risk my own skin unless I have to.
-->[Ahsoka glares at him]
-->'''Nute Gunray:''' What?
* {{Jerkass}}
* LeanAndMean: He's rather lanky, and a very nasty person.
* MoralMyopia: He wants revenge on Padmé because she got him arrested for the Trade Federation's occupation of Naboo, an illegal, armed occupation that resulted in the suffering and deaths of thousands of innocent people.
* NiceHat: Neimoidians have a penchant for wearing these.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: He is a self-admitted a coward, with little to no fighting prowess, but he can still knock out someone from behind, as Commander Gree found out. Earlier in the same episode, Ahsoka even claimed that he looked harmless enough.
* OpinionFlipflop: After Argyus springs him from prison, Gunray remarks "I always had a good feeling about you, captain". After Ventress killed Argyus, Gunray immediately gave her the same compliment (replacing "captain" with "assassin").
* {{Revenge}}: He wants Padmé dead, for her role in arresting him after the [[Film/ThePhantomMenace invasion of Naboo]], because it cost him a fortune to get away from punishment.
* {{Slimeball}}

!! General Lok Durd
[[quoteright:210:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Lok-Durd-001_9741.jpg]]
--> Voiced by: GeorgeTakei

* DirtyCoward
* EvilGenius: He invented the defoliator, some sort of [[FantasticNuke napalm that burns only living tissue]], but has no affect on machinery such as droids.
* FatBastard
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Invoked. After Anakin destroyed the Defoliator tank, one of the shells fell out of it. When Lok Durd saw it rolling towards him, he panicked because he thought that his own invention was gonna kill him.
-->"Help! I'll be ''[[Funny/StarWarsTheCloneWars defoliated]]''!"
* LargeHam: He's pretty flamboyant. He's also voiced by George Takei.
* {{Narcissist}}: According to supplementary material. See RousingSpeech and SmallNameBigEgo below.
* NiceHat: Neimoidians have a penchant for wearing these.
* RousingSpeech: Subverted when he's introducing the Defoliator to a group of battle droids. According to the Decoded version of "Defenders of Peace", [[MechaMooks battle droids]] don't actually need rousing speeches; Lok Durd just likes to hear himself talk.
* SmallNameBigEgo: He considers the Defoliator his own weapon and only thinks about how it will get him to a higher position (and considering he's already a General...) in the Confederacy. According to supplementary material, he makes more noise in the war room than he does on the battlefield.
* SmugSnake
* VillainOfTheWeek: He was captured by Anakin at the end of his debut episode.
** Though his Defoliator apparently made it to mass-production, as it turns up again in "Massacre".

!! Doctor Nuvo Vindi
[[quoteright:290:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/290px-Nuvo_Vindis_laboratory_2815.png]]
[[caption-width-right:290: "I suppose one can never have too many lab rats."]]
--> Voiced by: Michael York

* AxCrazy: Not only was he willing to unleash the incredibly lethal Blue Shadow Virus into Naboo's ecosystem (and kill all life on the planet, including himself), he's also outright unstable and genuinely excited that the virus could get out of his lab even after he's captured.
* CloudCuckoolander: While he is dangerously smart enough to resurrect a lethal virus, he thinks said virus is a unique lifeform. But again, he's just crazy.
* EvilAlbino: Although with bluish/purplish hues in his skin.
* EvilOldFolks: A comment from him in "Mystery of a Thousand Moons" suggests he may actually be pretty old.
* FacialMarkings : Although, they're most likely natural for his species.
* HellishPupils: With double-eyelids to boot.
* HerrDoktor: He's got a German accent and he's a MadScientist.
* InsistentTerminology: You eradicated the Blue Shadow Virus? [[ChewingTheScenery "YOU MEAN MURDERED!"]]
* KnightTemplar: He thinks he's bringing judgment to the galaxy by releasing the Blue Shadow Virus on its populace , but he's [[AxCrazy clearly]] [[OmnicidalManiac insane]].
* LargeHam: It's Michael York voicing a mad scientist. Do we need to say more?
* LaughingMad: When it seems the Blue Shadow bombs are about to go off.
* LeanAndMean
* MadScientist
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: He apparently uses that doctorate for developing or recreating bio-weapons. According to his backstory, he was also a medical doctor.
* OmnicidalManiac: He tried to unleash an incredibly lethal virus with no known cure into Naboo's ecosystem, and then planned to unleash it on the galaxy afterward. He was also willing to kill himself with this virus too.
* RubberForeheadAlien: Aside from the bluish-white skin, FacialMarkings, the head-crest, and the double-eyelids, Fausts could almost pass for humans.
* SadisticChoice: When Anakin reaches his laboratory, he gives him two options: Let him escape with some samples of the virus or let Padme and Jar Jar get [[ElectricTorture electrocuted]] to death. However, this only delays Anakin, who both saves his friends and eventually captures Vindi.
* ThoseWackyNazis: He seems to be based on Nazi scientists from WWII serials, especially with his [[LargeHam hamminess]].
* VillainOfTheWeek: Somewhat. While he is present in both episodes of the "Blue Shadow Virus" arc, he's already defeated and arrested at the beginning of the arc's second episode, "Mystery of a Thousand Moons". He's most prominent as a threat in "Blue Shadow Virus".

!! Emir Wat Tambor
--> Voiced by: Matthew Wood

* ArcVillain: For the Ryloth arc.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: He's the head of the Techno Union, who has also sided with the Separatists.
* {{Greed}}: His FatalFlaw. Tambor refused to leave without the treasures he had stolen from the Twi'lek people, leading his tactical droid to abandon him for capture by the Republic or death from the impending Separatist bombing.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: Especially notable when compared to [[DirtyCoward Nute Gunray]]. When he was abandoned by his tactical droid and at Mace Windu's mercy, he was prepared to die in the impending Separatist bombing of Lessu, taking the Republic forces with him. Ultimately subverted in that Anakin and Ahsoka [[SavedByCanon were able to take out the Hyena bombers in time]].
* KickTheDog: When Count Dooku makes it clear that he's already lost Ryloth since Mace Windu's leading the liberation force, he orders a fire-bombing campaign on many Twi'lek villages across the planet to send a message about "the price of a Republic victory."
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: He wisely surrenders after the Separatist forces have been defeated and the bombing has been thwarted, all with [[GracefulLoser little fuss]] too.
-->'''Wat Tambor''': What are your terms of surrender?
-->'''Cham Syndulla''': They are unconditional.
-->'''Wat Tambor''': Agreed...
* LittleGreenManInACan: See StarfishAlien below.
* NonActionGuy
* StarfishAlien: Slightly humanoid example. Coming from a planet with a high-pressure atmosphere, Skakoans are required to wear body-concealing (minus parts of their head) pressure suits when offworld. If that suit were to get breached, Tambor would [[ExplosiveDecompression violently]] [[MadeOfExplodium explode]]. Also, the DVD featurette for "Liberty on Ryloth" suggests that Skakoans might not actually have legs (referencing how Tambor's original ILM model didn't have them), hence why Tambor "scoots" when he "walks".
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Tambor was captured at the end of the Ryloth arc, but ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' confirms he and Poggle the Lesser eventually got out of Republic custody. Both he and Poggle make cameos on security camera in the Republic military base on Coruscant in "The Jedi Who Knew Too Much". As of the Season 5 finale, we have yet to see them get out.

!! Prison Warden/Commander Osi Sobeck
[[quoteright:210:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Osi-Sobeck-001_4771.jpg]]
--> Voiced by: Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor

* ArcVillain: The main villain of the Citadel-trilogy
* AxCrazy: When you threaten droids, by "choking" them, you definitely qualify. Also see below at BadBoss.
* BadBoss: He's been known to shoot droids just for mentioning the word "escape".
* BoomHeadshot: Used it on a captured clone.
* CanonImmigrant: Not Sobeck himself, but rather his species, the Phindians, originated in the ExpandedUniverse.
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: His voice is based off of a mix of Al Pacino's and ChristopherWalken's.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Through out his entire trilogy, he was usually only one step behind the heroes, and sometimes he even managed to get ahead of them.
* HoistHeroOverHead / KillItWithFire: He attempted to kill Tarkin by throwing him in a lava lake.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Skewered with Ahsoka's shoto.
* InTheBack: He was stabbed by Ahsoka in the back.
* KilledOffForReal: Courtesy of Ahsoka.
* LargeHam: He ''is'' voiced by Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor doing his ChristopherWalken impression.
* NoMacGuffinNoWinner: He tried to kill Tarkin when it seemed like he wouldn't be able to recapture the escaped prisoners and the intel they carried.
* PrimalStance: His species has this as a default.
* RubberForeheadAlien: He's a Phindian.
* SanitySlippage: By all appearances, he wasn't exactly the picture of sanity before, but as the heroes continually evaded his attempts to recapture them and Count Dooku kept contacting him, he ''really'' started to lose it.
* TwitchyEye: His twitching got worse and worse through out the three episodes as the heroes continued to evade him.
* VillainousBreakdown: Has one over the course of the Citadel arc as the prisoners evade his grasp and is repeatedly chastised by Count Dooku, culminating with his attempt to murder Tarkin.

!! Riff Tamson
[[quoteright:239:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Riff-Tamson-001_5936.jpg]]
--> Voiced by: Gary Anthony Williams

A brutal Karkarodon who served as the Separatist ambassador on Mon Calamari during the King-electing negotiations between the Mon Cala and Quarren.

* {{Ambadassador}}: He was the ambassador of the Separatists during the king election of Mon Calamari. After the negotiations between the Mon Cala and the Quarren went south (not in small part, because of his machinations), he lead the joined Quarren-Separatist forces to battle, and proved to be as badass as expected from a SharkMan.
* AmbitionIsEvil: Count Dooku apparently earned Tamson's loyalty by promising the Karkarodon that he would rule Mon Calamari once it was under Separatist control.
* ArcVillain: Of the Mon Calamari-trilogy.
* AssInAmbassador: Even though he was officially merely an "observer" during the king's election, he had the nerves to talk down to Prince Lee-Char, the rightful heir of the throne, telling him that he didn't earn the right to speak at the gathering.
* {{Badass}}: Swims into the middle of a BeamSpam battle ''unarmed'', then starts tearing combatants apart with his jaws and teeth!
* BadBoss: He threatened, talked down to, and betrayed Nossor Ri and the Quarrens.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: Quite fitting, given that he's a shark-man.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Upon learning that the Jedi disabled the planetary radar, he knew reinforcements were coming.
* EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks
* EvilGloating: Riff gloated to Prince Lee-Char about how he murdered the latter's father.
* EvilIsPetty: He insisted on sentencing Lee-Char to death while sitting on the throne of Mon Calamari.
* EvilSoundsDeep
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: Even by the standards of this series, Tamson's death was ''brutal''.
* FishPeople
* ForTheEvulz: According to him, he would've have tortured the prisoners regardless of whether or not they told him about Lee-Char's whereabouts.
* FrontLineGeneral: Being a humanoid aquatic predator, he'll put his jaws to use while fighting alongside his droids.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Literally. During their final confrontation, Prince Lee-Char took one of his dagger-bombs and used it on him.
* ILied: When the Jedi refuse to tell him about Prince Lee-Char's whereabouts, he puts Anakin on a timer by putting a leak in Padme's diving helmet. Even then, they are unable to tell him, making him assume they don't actually know. Once the prince is captured, he just leaves Padme to drown.
* ImAHumanitarian[=/=]ToServeMan: Not confirmed, but if the Karkaradon habit of killing their enemies with their teeth and being a SharkMan are anything to go by, he may actually eat his enemies, sapient or not.
* {{Jerkass}}: Villainy aside, Tamson is just plain unpleasant.
* KilledOffForReal: It doesn't get much more dead than being blown to bits. We even get a shot of his body-less head sinking to the bottom of the sea.
* LargeHam
* LudicrousGibs: His explosive death.
* MadeOfIron: Ahsoka hit him with her lightsaber once and he was shot several times by Mon Cala soldiers, but they all had very little effect on him. It took a bomb stuck in his shoulder to kill him.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: And he made good use of them in battle.
* SharkMan
* ShoutOut: To ''Film/{{Jaws}}''.
* YouKilledMyFather: Riff is the one who killed Lee-Char's father.

!! Senator Mina Bonteri
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mina-Bonteri-001_5841.jpg]]
--> Voiced by: KathSoucie

An idealist politician from Onderon, Mina Bonteri used to be Padmé Amidala's mentor in the Senate. While Mina believed in the Separatist cause and openly admired Count Dooku, she also sought to stop the spreading violence of the Clone Wars. On Padmé urging, she proposed to open peace-talks with the Republic, which the Separatist Parliament agreed upon. However with this, she became a threat to the Sith plans, and was murdered by Dooku's thugs. She was also the mother of Lux Bonteri.

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Openly admired [[VillainWithGoodPublicity Count Dooku]].
* KilledOffForReal: By Dooku, the man she admittedly admired.
* MissingMom: To Lux.
* NotSoDifferent: On a large scale instead of a personal one. She explains to Ahsoka that both warring sides want the same thing.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Upon learning from Padmé that the Republic Senate was unsure of continuing the war, she was quick to convince the Separatist Senate to open peace negotiations with the Republic. She also accepts Padmé's opinion of Dooku, agreeing to disagree on that.
* ShadowArchetype: She's basically a Separatist-aligned Padmé with a very similar personality and the same goal of finding a peaceful resolution to the war.
* SkunkStripe: A graying streak in her brown hair.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Mina is pretty much the face of innocent people who joined the separatists with noble intentions. Unfortunately, she ends up paying the ultimate price for being a moral person allied with a Sith Lord.
* WideEyedIdealist: It's not hard to see why she and Padmé are friends.
* WidowWoman: Her husband was killed in self-defense during the Clone Wars, exactly one year prior to her introduction in the show and her own subsequent death.

!! Battle Droids
[[quoteright:242:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Battle-Droids-001_2745.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:242:"Roger, roger."]]
--> Voiced by: Matthew Wood

!!! In general, about every types

* FrickinLaserBeams: They use blaster weapons, just like every non-Jedi warrior. Droid blasters are firing [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience red laser beams]].
* LackOfEmpathy: Sort of expected given that they ''are'' machines built to kill.
* MechaMooks
* ZergRush: Individually, even the best types aren't particularly strong or effective, but in large enough numbers they are a legitimate threat even for Jedi. Especially true to the B1-s, and to slightly lesser degree to the B2-s.

!!! B1-, and OOM-series Battle Droids

* ButtMonkey: Especially in Season 1, where almost every episode had them suffer quite amusing defeats.
* CatchPhrase: "Roger, roger."
* CannonFodder: Most of the time, but they do manage to get in their fair share of kills from time to time.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Played with. Most of the time their shots are blocked by the heroes, rather than miss completely.
** Played straight and {{lampshaded}} in "Ambush":
---> '''Droid''': Hold on, almost. *Fires at Yoda's escape pod and completely misses the target*
---> '''Droid commander''': What a terrible shot!
---> '''Droid''': Oh well. It's my programming.
* {{Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain}}s: The B1-s are so inept at times, it's hard not to feel sorry for them.
* KeystoneArmy: Averted. The battle droids are no longer dependent on a central control unit like they were during the [[Film/ThePhantomMenace Battle of Naboo]]. However, because the OOMs and B1s aren't used to being able to think independently, [[TookALevelInDumbass they exhibit a lack of intelligence]] (they are most effective when they have a tactician around) and [[CloudCuckoolander develop odd personality quirks]].
* NothingIsScarier: They can actually be quite intimidating when they're silent. The effect is something like an unending tide of robotic zombies.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Battle droids can be funny... until you see them ruthlessly hunting down stragglers, executing wounded enemies, and so on.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: The B1 battle droids, especially in Season 1 and 2.
* TooDumbToLive: Most of the time, especially in the first season.
* TookALevelInBadass: Throughout the course of the show, their comic relief side has been downplayed more and more to the point that by the time of the fourth season, the only real instance of it was from some Battle Droids reprogrammed to work for the Republic. And as their comic-relief tendencies have decreased, their lethality has noticeably improved.

!!! B2-series

* ArmCannon: One sub-type has some sort of PlasmaCannon instead of a left arm, that they generally use as a bazooka.
* MenOfSherwood: They’re the true counterpart of the clones: they’re more competent than the B1-s, and in large numbers can be very effective, but they’re far from being on EliteMook levels.
* EvilIsBigger: They are larger and bulkier than the B1-s, and much more effective fighters.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Their voice is much deeper than the B1’s, and unsurprisingly they’re far more competent.
* InSeriesNickname: They’re sometimes refered to as "Super Battle Droids".
* JetPack: Another sub-type comes with built-in ones.
* SuperWristGadget: The normal-type ones have dual-blasters built into their wrists.

!!! BX-series Commando Droids

* ConfusionFu: Because of their extreme agility, their movements are hard to predict.
* DressingAsTheEnemy: In their debut episode, they tried to fool Cody and Rex by putting on of them in clone trooper armor.
* EliteMooks: Not quite on the same level as the Droidekas or the Magnaguards, but they’re still more than a match for clones, and they can cause trouble to even Jedi.
* GoddamnedBats: They’re considered as such InUniverse by the Jedi: they’re not likely to kill or injure one, but they can distract them long enough.
* KnightOfCerebus: A rare {{Mook}} example, and for early Season 1 too (even predating Cad Bane). Even though they were defeated in their first appearance, they really showed that not all of the Separatist droids are bumbling comic relief (but even then, that trait seems to only be restricted to the B1s and [=OOMs=]) and could be a legitimate threat. Even in the later seasons, where they became a little more common and slightly more of a pushover, they were still a threat to non-Jedi (to Jedi, they're a nuisance at best).
* MundaneMadeAwesome: They have a human-like build, which allows them to disguise themselves as clone troopers.
* TheMusketeer: They’re using both blasters and vibro-swords, but never at once.

!!! Droidekas (Destroyer Droids)

* AchillesHeel: Despite their reputation, they have several. In addition to being very vulnerable in travel mode, their shields don't protect them from mounted heavy weapons, stationary objects and slow-moving projectiles such as lightly-tossed grenades, and they're blind from behind. The Onderon Rebels were taught about these weaknesses as part of their initial training.
* TheDreaded: Even Jedi are wary of these things, and the only infantry units more dreaded than them are [=MagnaGuards=].
* FragileSpeedster[=/=]MightyGlacier: Depends on the form. They are the former on travel mode, as they can move really fast, but cannot fire and are unprotected. They are the latter in attack mode, where they have a very protective energy shield and [[MoreDakka twin-repeating blasters]], but cannot move very fast.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Provided their enemies don't use any of their [[AchillesHeel Achilles Heels]] against them.
* RollingAttack: They don't normally do this, but Obi-Wan Kenobi used three of them this way when surrounded by squads of other droids.
* TheQuietOne: Unlike most droid infantry units (aside from other anti-infantry units such as Dwarf Spider Droids and Crab Droids), they don't talk.
* TransformingMecha: They can change between their fast-moving but fragile wheel mode and their devastating but slow attack mode.
* TripodTerror: Not as prevalent as the [[HumongousMecha Octuptarra Tri-Droids]], but they do have three legs.

!!! IG-100 [=MagnaGuards=]
[[quoteright:260:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/MagnaGuard-001_608.jpg]]

* BodyguardingABadass: Both Griveous and Dooku uses them as their personal bodyguards, even though both of them are far more competent warriors than these guys.
* EliteMooks: They are the most dangerous droid models in the Separatist army.
* EyesDoNotBelongThere: They have an [[ExtraEyes Extra Eye]] on their abdomen, allowing them to continue fighting even after being decapitated ([[DependingOnTheWriter sometimes]]).
* GlowingMechanicalEyes
* PraetorianGuard
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Although a variant features gold eyes, with matching electro-staffs.
* SimpleStaff: Their weapon of choice.
* ShockAndAwe: Their staffs are electrified.

!!! Infiltrator Droids

* ArmCannon: Their arms end in actual laser canons, instead of the standard blasters.
* CombiningMecha: Subverted. A pair of them can combine into a massive bomb, instead of into a more powerful droid.
* {{Giant Mook}}s: Their battle-mode forms are two-and half meters tall, and rather resilient.
* GlowingMechanicalEyes: Three of them.
* MadeOfIron: Aside from being literarly made of iron of course, their armor is strong enough to withstand repeated blaster fire.
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* ShouldersOfDoom: Justified. Their gigantic shoulder-armours are their unfolded sweeper droid-disguises.
* SuicideAttack: They were designed to self-destruct once they reached their destination.
* TransformingMecha: They can disguise themselves as sweeperdroids.
* AWolfInSheepsClothing: Their disguised form is identical to harmless sweeper droids.

!!! Tactical Droids
--> Voiced by: [[Creator/PhilLaMarr Phil [=LaMarr=]]], Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor, Creator/CoreyBurton, Gary Scheppke, Creator/TomKane, Matt Lanter, Matthew Wood, Cara Pifko, Creator/AshleyEckstein, Creator/DeeBradleyBaker, Catherine Taber

* CreepyMonotone: They can even [[EvilLaugh laugh]] in a monotone.
* TheDragon: They sometimes play this role to the VillainOfTheWeek[=/=]ArcVillain.
* DragonInChief: Emir Wat Tambor's Tactical Droid, TA-175, was this in "Liberty on Ryloth". When Tambor was getting too greedy and trying to get every treasure on Ryloth before leaving Lessu to get bombed, both Count Dooku and TA-175 insisted that Tambor get as much as he realistically can. Once he was ready to leave, TA-175 evacuated without him, leaving him to be captured by the Republic forces.
* EliteMooks: They themselves are this, but the Super Tactical Droids introduced in Season 5 take this further.
* GlowingMechanicalEyes
* MookLieutenant
* OffWithHisHead: They tend to fall victim this, as the Republic forces sometimes try to steal their heads to gain tactical information.
* PaletteSwap: Unlike most Separatists droids, aside from each one having a different voice and number, they all have unique color schemes, regardless of plot importance. [[TropesAreTools From a production standpoint]], this makes it so that the animators don't have to waste their budget creating an organic Separatist commander that's only important for one or two scenes.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Most Tactical Droids have white photoreceptors, but a few, such as General Grievous's Tactical Droid, TV-94 (and TV-94b) have red photoreceptors.
* SmugSnake: Aside from their arrogance and bossiness, one of their biggest weaknesses is that they don't have a realistic assessment of their chances, one of the reasons the Super Tactical Droids were made.
* TheStrategist: They often play this role to coordinate the less intelligent B1s.
* TooDumbToLive: While they are definitely smarter than the B1s and can be effective strategists, they seem to lack a sense of self-preservation programming as Poggle the Lesser's droid TX-21 demonstrated. When Ahsoka Tano stuck an explosive charge to a nigh-invincible Super Tank, all he did was gloat about the tank's superior armor when he was right next to the charge.
* [[HumanShield Twi'lek Shield]]: TX-20 used Nabat's captive population as a shield for the proton cannons providing anti-air support for Ryloth's surface. This doesn't work, [[HoistByHisOwnPetard as he ends up torn apart by said shield]].
* VillainOfTheWeek: The only time a standard Tactical Droid ever played this role was TX-20 in "Innocents of Ryloth". Justified in that TX-20 was the [[PaletteSwap first]] Tactical Droid made production-wise ("Innocents of Ryloth" was produced before "Jedi Crash", the first on-screen appearance of one of the droids).
* WhyAmITicking: When Zygerrian slaver Darts D'Nar planted bombs all over Kiros's city, we secretly placed one bomb in reserve on his Tactical Droid, activating it to distract Obi-Wan. Judging from the droid's reaction, he was not informed of this.

!!! General Kalani
[[quoteright:242:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kalani-001_6096.jpg]]
--> Voiced by: Creator/GreggBerger

* BadassBoast: Surprisingly often for a droid. For instance, when Tandin mentions others will take Saw's place if he dies.
--> '''Kalani''': They too will suffer.
* CreepyMonotone: [[MachineMonotone He is a droid, after all]].
* TheDragon: A small-scale one for Dooku, and his task is to serve as one for [[TyrantTakesTheHelm Sanjay Rash]].
** DragonInChief: Rash is stunningly inept, making Kalani this. To the point that he executes Rash once it's clear the war is lost.
* EliteMooks: Some sort of elite tactical droid, the very first of his kind seen in the series.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: His AchillesHeel. Kalani can't comprehend why the rebels fight. [[spoiler: Which is why he fails to see Tandin's betrayal coming.]]
* EvilSoundsDeep
* [[GlowingMechanicalEyes Glowing Mechanical]] RedEyesTakeWarning: Remarkable because tactical droids tend to have white eyes.
* KarmaHoudini
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Clearly knows the right time to retreat and the right time to attack.
* LackOfEmpathy: For pretty much everyone.
* MeaningfulName: "Kalani" means "Royal One" or "Chieftan", which matches with his status as an [[EliteMooks Elite]] tactical droid and MookLieutenant for the droids.
* MookLieutenant
* ObviouslyEvil: A black droid with a CreepyMonotone and a chassis that resembles a skull. With all of that, it's not hard to guess his moral alignment.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: Mild example, Kalani expresses arrogance and anger occasionally.
* TheStrategist: Being a tactical droid, this is a given. And unlike most tactical droids, he's quite efficient. He even keeps a realistic assessment of his chances, something the standard tactical droid seems to lack.
** DidntSeeThatComing: [[DefectorFromDecadence Tandin's betrayal]] and Ahsoka's participation.
* TortureTechnician
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Delivers it to [[TyrantTakesTheHelm Rash]]. He didn't even need to be ordered.

!! Count Dooku/Darth Tyranus
[[quoteright:340:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Count_Dooku_Clones_Wars_6164.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:340:"The Sith control everything. You just don't know it."]]
--> Voiced by: Creator/CoreyBurton [[TheOtherDarrin in the TV series]], ChristopherLee in TheMovie

A former Jedi Master, Dooku left the Order after his former apprentice Qui-Gon Jinn was killed on Naboo. In front of the public he took on the facade of an idealist politican, who went on a crusade against the corrupt and incompetent Republic, seeking to built a better state. However, secretly, Dooku joined Darth Sidious and became his apprentice, seeking to overthrow the Republic, exterminating the Jedi and conquering the Galaxy for the Sith.

* AdaptationalBadass: He's by no means un-badass in the movies, but he gets to show it a lot more in the series.
* AristocratsAreEvil: He's the Count of Serenno, and the current Sith apprentice.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: He's a nobleman and the political leader of the Separatists as well as one of the galaxy's deadliest fighters.
* BadBoss: Ventress found this one out the hard way. Although, in Dooku's defense, he betrayed her only reluctantly, on Sidious' order.
* {{Badass}}: He defeated Ventress and the two best warriors of the Nightsisters clan while blinded by a poison. In his ''pyjamas'', no less
* BadassBaritone: Per usual for both Christopher Lee and Corey Burton.
* BadassBeard
* BadassCape
* BadassGrandpa: He's one of the oldest characters in the show and, perhaps unsurprisingly, one of the toughest.
* BadassInCharge: Of the Confederacy of Independant Systems. Sidious may be Dooku's master, but the Count is still the unquestioned leader of the Separatists.
* BadassInDistress: In the appropriately titled "Dooku Captured" and its follow-up episode "Gungan General".
* BadassTeacher: To Ventress, and later, to Savage.
* BastardUnderstudy: It's in the job description for being the Sith apprentice.
* BeardOfEvil
* BigBad: Subverted. The protagonists (and many of the antagonists) believe him to be this, but Dooku is only TheDragon and an UnwittingPawn for Darth Sidious.
* ContemplativeBoss: He usually receives his subordinates with his back turned to them, but he often turns around and looks at them sometime during the conversation.
* CrypticBackgroundReference: Apparently Dooku and Mother Talzin have a history with each other, but the only things revealed are that Dooku had helped Talzin once "long ago", and apparently gave a lock of his hair to her as part of some sort of deal.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: While training Savage, Dooku refused to tell his apprentice how to defend against Force lightning (although he implied that, if the training had continued, he would have done so eventually). This wound up saving the Count's life when Savage betrayed him.
--> '''Dooku''': A wise master does not reveal all his secrets at once.
* DeadpanSnarker: On occasion. Dooku's wit is nothing if not dry.
* TheDragon: He's Sidious' top subordinate.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: Well being the Sith apprentice means that one day, he'd have to try to usurp Sidious, but the first time he really considered turning against his Master, was when he got Savage as a replacement for Ventress.
* EvilCanNotComprehendGood[=/=]GenreBlindness: In the Nightsisters trilogy, he assumes that Ventress' assassination attempt against him was the work of the Jedi. As a former Jedi himself, Dooku should have realised that they do not deal in assassinations. Whether this is an instance of Dooku's own corruption by the dark side, or a simple lapse in judgment, is ambiguous.
* EvilMentor: To Ventress and, briefly, Savage.
* EvilSoundsDeep: He ''is'' voiced by Creator/CoreyBurton using his ChristopherLee voice.
* FallenHero: He was once a legendary Jedi, Yoda's Padawan, and Qui-Gon Jinn's master.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He's always soft spoken, even while insulting someone, and has no qualms against forcing women and children into slave labour.
* TheHeavy: Dooku's actions drive the plot while Sidious plots from behind the scenes.
* HeroKiller: In the third issue of "Son of Dathomir", [[spoiler:he kills Jedi Master Tiplee]].
* IWantThemAlive: He ordered Savage to bring Katuunko to him alive. Dooku was displeased, to say the least, when all Savage returned with was the king's corpse.
* KickTheDog: Killing [[TokenGoodTeammate loyal Separatist senators that truly wanted a peaceful end to the war]] such as Mina Bonteri and Bec Lawise (by means of forcing Padme to [[ShootYourMate shoot him]] when she tried to shoot Dooku) can be seen as this.
* KlingonPromotion: Wants one desperately. Confirmed during the Savage Opress arc.
* LaserBlade
* ManipulativeBastard: Shown to be one in the Rush Clovis arc when he forces Clovis into a DealWithTheDevil situation that results in war coming Scipio, [[spoiler: Clovis's death and control of the Banking Clan falling to Palpatine]].
* MasterSwordsman: He's fighting style is based on fencing.
* MeaningfulName[=/=]NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast:
** "Dooku" is similar to the Japanese word "doku", which means "venom.
** His Sith name "Tyranus" means well... "tyrant" in Latin.
* MoralMyopia: He sought revenge against Ventress and the Nightsisters for their attempt to assassinate him, disregarding that it was his own (albeit reluctant) attempted murder against Ventress that inspired the attacks.
* OldMaster: A villainous example.
* NeckSnap: In a brutally epic fashion to one of Hondo's pirates.
* ShockAndAwe: He can and likes to use Force lightning against his enemies.
* ShootTheDangerousMinion: Sidious ordered him to kill Ventress, because he was worried Dooku would use her to turn against him.
* TheStarscream: Seeks to overthrow Sidious and become the new Dark Lord of the Sith. [[DoomedByCanon He doesn't quite succeed]].
* TheStoic: He very rarely shows his emotions and even when he does, he usually keeps how much he shows well under control.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: On occasion, when he taps deeply into the dark side, most notably in "Witches of the Mist", when he blasts Savage with Force lightning.
* UndyingLoyalty: He claimed this towards Darth Sidious in "Nightsisters", and we're given no indication beforehand that he was anything but truthful. Sidious, however, demands proof of this loyalty, and orders Dooku to eliminate Ventress, which, ironically, inspires Dooku to train his next apprentice, Savage Opress, to help him overthrow Sidious.
* UnwittingPawn: And again to Darth Sidious. He won't find this out until Episode III, however.
* VillainTeamUp: As of the third issue of "Son of Dathomir", he appears to have done this with [[spoiler:Darth Maul and Mother Talzin]].
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: So much so, that he's able to pose as the BigGood for the public of the Separatist Alliance worlds.
* WickedCultured: He mostly acts like a gentleman, but nonetheless, he's just as sociopathic as his master.
* WorthyOpponent: Considered Obi-Wan this after he successfully foiled his attempt to kidnap Palpatine ''twice'' in one day.
* WouldHurtAChild: He tried to kill Rotta the Huttlet in the pilot movie, and is more than willing to sentence women and children to work camps beside.
* YouHaveFailedMe: To Ventress, albeit somewhat reluctantly.

!! General Grievous
[[quoteright:340:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/swcw2gg3_8994.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:340:"Listen to me, Jedi. I do not care about your politics. I do not care about your Republic. I only live to see you die!"]]
--> Voiced by: Matthew Wood

* [[GeneralFailure Admiral Failure]]: Probably because he is a general and more used to ground combat, his forays into fleet command tend to be much less successful. In a more general sense, he's also a fairly poor tactician, and pulls a ScrewThisImOuttaHere whenever things go marginally pear-shaped, but this was more the case in Season 1.
** From Season 2 onward, he started [[TookALevelInBadass showing a little more tactical brilliance both in ground and fleet command]]. In "Grievous Intrigue", he predicted Obi-Wan's entire battle plan for rescuing Eeth Koth and in "ARC Troopers", he deliberately sacrificed the frigates in his fleet so the debris carrying the Trident drill ship components could fall into Kamino's oceans (although how much of that plan is his is debatable considering he was also working with Asajj Ventress during the battle).
* BadBoss: Hates the battle droids under his command, deeming them useless (not hard to see why, though) and regularly destroys or abuses them whenever he loses his temper.
* {{Badass}}: Grievous may be a coward, but there's no doubt that he's a skilled warrior.
* BadassBiker: He rides a pretty cool looking speeder bike in "Bound for Rescue".
* BadassBoast: The caption quote.
* BadassCape: Which he usually [[TheCoatsAreOff removes]] before fighting.
* BadassTransplant: The mechanical version. Aside from his head and some internal organs, his entire body has been cybernetically augmented, making him far more dangerous, than either the usual droids, or most organic being.
* BloodKnight: According to him, his only reason for being involved in the war is to kill Jedi.
* BodyHorror: Only his head and heart are still organic. Judging from TheUnReveal below, it's obvious that his face is probably mutilated, too. If you go by the [[MultipleChoicePast modification backstory]], it's also self-inflicted.
* CombatPragmatist: He's not above shooting a Jedi while he has their lightsabers in a BladeLock.
* CoolPet: His cyborg roggwart, Gor, a large horned lizard-like monster similar to a [[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi rancor]] living in his castle on Vassek. He didn't survive when the Jedi infiltrated his castle.
* CurbStompBattle: He has his moments:
** During their first duel in Season 1, he effortlessly defeated Ahsoka, who escaped only because Griveous got distracted for a moment by an explosion. She put up a better fight during their rematch in Season 5, but Grievous still bested her rather easily.
** Although Ventress gained the upper hand in their one-on-one duel in "Massacre", after he had her shot by his droid army, he tore apart the other Nightsisters and their ArmyOfTheDead with ease.
* {{Cyborg}}: His entire body is mechanical, only his head, and some of of internal organs remained from his original body.
* DirtyCoward: He has a tendency to boast about how he's superior to whoever is his current opponent, and then use cheap tactics or retreat when the tables are turned.
* TheDragon: With Ventress' abandonment and Savage's betrayal, Grievous has now become this to Dooku.
* DualWielding: Times two.
* EvilSoundsDeep
* FourStarBadass: He's one of the highest ranking Separatist military leaders.
* FiringOneHanded: How he uses his blaster.
* FrontLineGeneral
* GeneralRipper: Definitely.
* GutturalGrowler
* HeroKiller: Not to the extent of his ''[[WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars Clone Wars]]'' appearance, but Grievous is still a serious threat to the Jedi.
** Notably, Jedi Knight Nahdar Vebb in "Lair of Grievous" and General Roos Tarpals in "Shadow Warrior".
* ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne: Subverted in "Grievous Intrigue". When facing him, Eeth Koth called Grievous, a "coward and murderer". Usually one would expect for the villain to be insulted by being called a coward. Grievous instead took issue with being dubbed a murderer, stating that he didn't "ridding the galaxy of you Jedi filth" to be murder.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: The Nightsisters are a culture of vicious misandrists who feel free to abuse, brainwash, and even kill the male Nightbrothers whenever they please. Given that, many fans rooted for Grievous and the battle droids as they mercilessly killed them during "Massacre".
* LargeHam: He tends to be rather dramatic.
--> '''Grievous''': '''YOU WILL NEVER DEFEAT GRIEVOUS!'''
* LaserBlade: Either two or four at once.
* LightningBruiser
* MasterSwordsman: The only ones who've held their own against him without resorting to using the Force are Kit Fitso and Ventress.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Grievous is at his deadliest when he uses all four arms; then he can hold his own against top-tier Jedi.
* NeckSnap: Does it to a clone trooper in "Bound for Rescue", with his foot no less.
* NoIndoorVoice: Although, to be fair, his voice is so grating and deep that even if he ''were'' speaking at a normal volume, it would still come across as rather loud.
* PetTheDog: He seemed genuinely saddened and enraged when he learned that his pet, Gor was killed by Kit Fisto and Nahdar Vebb.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: He used to be a Kaleesh warlord before he became the cyborg general.
* PsychoForHire: He may not get paid for what he does, but his involvement with the Confederacy is just an excuse for him to kill Jedi, and he enjoys it a little too much if the image quote is any indication. At least, this is what he's like [[FallenHero post-reconstruction]].
* TheRival: He has a lasting enmity with Obi-Wan that borders on this trope. Obi-Wan even invoked it "Griveous Intrigue" when he was certain that Grievous would board his ship and face him personally rather than simply blow him up with his ship.
* RousingSpeech: PlayedForLaughs, when he gives one to a bunch of ''droids'' designed for suicide-bombing. He even explicitly tells them that [[GoYeHeroesGoAndDie none of them will be coming back]].
* SmugSnake: Played with. He tends to be overconfident about his own abilities and boast at his enemies before being defeated in combat and/or forced to flee or pull a fast one on his enemies, but every now and then, he gets his own victories and shows some instances of tactical brilliance.
* TookALevelInBadass: In "Grievous Intrigue". He defeats Eeth Koth, 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 and his droid forces decimate the Nightsisters (aside from a minor setback against Ventress).
** And another in "Bound for Rescue", where he defeated Obi-Wan in a space battle, then one-on-one in a duel.
** Yet another in the first issue of the "Son of Dathomir" comic adaptation, where he [[spoiler:trounces ''Darth Maul'', of all people, in both the overall battle and one-to-one combat.]]
* TheUnreveal: In "Lair of Grievous" his mask had to be replaced by a new one. As the doctor-droid started the remove it, it seemed that his real face would be revealed, but the scene cut to the Jedi, and when we next see the General, he already has a new mask on.
* VillainousRescue: Though he's rescuing another villain, he does save Count Dooku's life from Mother Talzin in "Massacre".
* WhiteMaskOfDoom
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: His backstory makes him one, as well as a FallenHero.
* WouldHitAGirl: Definitely. Would also commit genocide against an entire clan of females.
* WouldHurtAChild: He had several Padawan braids among his trophies in "Lair of Grievous", and relished the idea of killing the younglings and adding their newly-built lightsabers to his collection in "A Necessary Bond".

!! Admiral Trench
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Trench-001_1319.jpg]]
--> Voiced by: Creator/DeeBradleyBaker

* CardCarryingVillain: Oh, so much:
--> '''Trench:''' I smell fear... and it smells good.
--> '''Trench:''' (to Anakin) Turn back now, retreat while you can, or [[PunctuatedForEmphasis I. Am Your.]] [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom Doom]]!
* {{Cyborg}}: He became one after his ship was destroyed over Christophsis. Replacement parts include ArtificialLimbs, an [[ElectronicEyes Electronic Eye]], a replacement mandible, what looks like a mechanical neck brace and some replacement skin for half his face.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The guy figured out a way to hit ''cloaked'' ships, while they were invisible to both sensors and to the eye. He also knew that the Jedi will engage him if he attacked civilians on the planet he was blockading, deduced that the cloaked ship was flown by a Jedi, and that said Jedi (Anakin) will attack him again. He lost only because he saw through Anakin's BatmanGambit mere ''seconds'' too late.
** In "The Unknown", he realized something was wrong with Tup and [[ManchurianAgent was not like any other previous instances of clones turning on the Jedi]].
* TheDreaded: Even Yularen thought that engaging him would be suicide.
* ExtraEyes: Four of them, for a total of six. He later gets one of those eyes replaced.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: His last moment before the impact of his own rockets is [[GracefulLoser a quiet acceptance of his defeat]]. However, he somehow survived it.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: He gains a few on his face in "The Unknown", possibly from the fireball in "Cat and Mouse".
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Both literally ''and'' metaphorically. He had rockets locked on the magnetic signature of Anakin's cloaked ship, just like he did numerous times before. Except since [[HandWave usually]] "[[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack no ship that small]] [[ContinuityNod has a cloaking device]]", he failed to calculate the difference of size, speed and maneuverability compared to his earlier experiences with cloaked cruisers, allowing Anakin to lead the rockets right back into his flagship's defenseless bridge. Luckily for him, he survived.
* LargeHam: He puts plenty of emphasis in his lines during his first appearance. He's not quite as hammy after he gets reconstructed.
* LivingLegend: Yularen was quite terrified at the thought of having him as an opponent again.
* MultiArmedMultitasking
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast
* NotQuiteDead: Invoked in his debut episode, as he was assumed to have died more than a decade earlier.
** He survived again when his ship was destroyed over Christophsis and was rebuilt as a cyborg.
* OhCrap: Had a moment for this before his own rockets blew him and his ship to smithereens.
* OutGambitted: Anakin pulled a BatmanGambit on him.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Even his [[ElectronicEyes replacement eye]] following his cybernetic reconstruction is red, now with the addition of [[GlowingMechanicalEyes glowing]].
* SpiderPeople: Subverted, as he's not centaurid, but bipedal with extra arms instead of legs.
* StarterVillain: If you take the chronological order of the series into account, he's technically the first villain fought in the series. This is subverted in that not only did he first appear in Season 2, he's actually more threatening (and higher rank) than most of the Separatist commanders that chronologically came after him (at least in the early seasons) and [[NotQuiteDead he comes back later]].
* TheStrategist
* TwoFaced: Half his face (and body) is covered with cybernetic implants after his reconstruction.
* UnexplainedRecovery: How he survived his apparent death in "Cat and Mouse" is given no explanation (being caught in an explosion and exposed to the vacuum of space), but given the extent of his cybernetics, he did not survive unscathed.
* VerbalTic: He tends to click his fangs a lot, usually between or mid-sentence.
* VillainOfTheWeek: He seemingly died at the end of his debut episode. Averted after he was revealed to have survived the events of said episode.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: What happened to him during the Ringo Vinda campaign after the events of "The Unknown" remains unknown, but it can assumed he would have had a bigger role later on had the series not been unexpectedly canceled.
* WorthyOpponent: Considered Anakin to be one. He was right.

!! Viceroy Nute Gunray
--> Voiced by: Creator/TomKenny

* ArchEnemy: Of Padmé.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive
* DirtyCoward: He even admitted that, he would never put himself at risk, unless he has no other choise.
* EmptyPromise: He promised immediate aid for the starving Rodia, if Onaconda Farr helped him lure Padmé into a trap, and arrest her. After arriving to Rodia, he said that he'll put the matter of the aid on a debate, after Padmé's execution, the latter of which was not in the bargain.
* {{Greed}}: His main motivation in aligning with Dooku is the promise of welth.
* HeKnowsTooMuch: When he was captured by the Republic, Dooku sent Ventress to free him, or silence him, before the Jedi could make him talk.
* HypocriticalHumor: His admittance of cowardice comes off as this when you realize he already took an unnecessary risk in the first place just by being a CorruptCorporateExecutive.
-->'''Nute Gunray:''' All I know is I never risk my own skin unless I have to.
-->[Ahsoka glares at him]
-->'''Nute Gunray:''' What?
* {{Jerkass}}
* LeanAndMean: He's rather lanky, and a very nasty person.
* MoralMyopia: He wants revenge on Padmé because she got him arrested for the Trade Federation's occupation of Naboo, an illegal, armed occupation that resulted in the suffering and deaths of thousands of innocent people.
* NiceHat: Neimoidians have a penchant for wearing these.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: He is a self-admitted a coward, with little to no fighting prowess, but he can still knock out someone from behind, as Commander Gree found out. Earlier in the same episode, Ahsoka even claimed that he looked harmless enough.
* OpinionFlipflop: After Argyus springs him from prison, Gunray remarks "I always had a good feeling about you, captain". After Ventress killed Argyus, Gunray immediately gave her the same compliment (replacing "captain" with "assassin").
* {{Revenge}}: He wants Padmé dead, for her role in arresting him after the [[Film/ThePhantomMenace invasion of Naboo]], because it cost him a fortune to get away from punishment.
* {{Slimeball}}

!! General Lok Durd

--> Voiced by: GeorgeTakei

* DirtyCoward
* EvilGenius: He invented the defoliator, some sort of [[FantasticNuke napalm that burns only living tissue]], but has no affect on machinery such as droids.
* FatBastard
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Invoked. After Anakin destroyed the Defoliator tank, one of the shells fell out of it. When Lok Durd saw it rolling towards him, he panicked because he thought that his own invention was gonna kill him.
-->"Help! I'll be ''[[Funny/StarWarsTheCloneWars defoliated]]''!"
* LargeHam: He's pretty flamboyant. He's also voiced by George Takei.
* {{Narcissist}}: According to supplementary material. See RousingSpeech and SmallNameBigEgo below.
* NiceHat: Neimoidians have a penchant for wearing these.
* RousingSpeech: Subverted when he's introducing the Defoliator to a group of battle droids. According to the Decoded version of "Defenders of Peace", [[MechaMooks battle droids]] don't actually need rousing speeches; Lok Durd just likes to hear himself talk.
* SmallNameBigEgo: He considers the Defoliator his own weapon and only thinks about how it will get him to a higher position (and considering he's already a General...) in the Confederacy. According to supplementary material, he makes more noise in the war room than he does on the battlefield.
* SmugSnake
* VillainOfTheWeek: He was captured by Anakin at the end of his debut episode.
** Though his Defoliator apparently made it to mass-production, as it turns up again in "Massacre".

!! Doctor Nuvo Vindi

[[caption-width-right:290: "I suppose one can never have too many lab rats."]]
--> Voiced by: Michael York

* AxCrazy: Not only was he willing to unleash the incredibly lethal Blue Shadow Virus into Naboo's ecosystem (and kill all life on the planet, including himself), he's also outright unstable and genuinely excited that the virus could get out of his lab even after he's captured.
* CloudCuckoolander: While he is dangerously smart enough to resurrect a lethal virus, he thinks said virus is a unique lifeform. But again, he's just crazy.
* EvilAlbino: Although with bluish/purplish hues in his skin.
* EvilOldFolks: A comment from him in "Mystery of a Thousand Moons" suggests he may actually be pretty old.
* FacialMarkings : Although, they're most likely natural for his species.
* HellishPupils: With double-eyelids to boot.
* HerrDoktor: He's got a German accent and he's a MadScientist.
* InsistentTerminology: You eradicated the Blue Shadow Virus? [[ChewingTheScenery "YOU MEAN MURDERED!"]]
* KnightTemplar: He thinks he's bringing judgment to the galaxy by releasing the Blue Shadow Virus on its populace , but he's [[AxCrazy clearly]] [[OmnicidalManiac insane]].
* LargeHam: It's Michael York voicing a mad scientist. Do we need to say more?
* LaughingMad: When it seems the Blue Shadow bombs are about to go off.
* LeanAndMean
* MadScientist
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: He apparently uses that doctorate for developing or recreating bio-weapons. According to his backstory, he was also a medical doctor.
* OmnicidalManiac: He tried to unleash an incredibly lethal virus with no known cure into Naboo's ecosystem, and then planned to unleash it on the galaxy afterward. He was also willing to kill himself with this virus too.
* RubberForeheadAlien: Aside from the bluish-white skin, FacialMarkings, the head-crest, and the double-eyelids, Fausts could almost pass for humans.
* SadisticChoice: When Anakin reaches his laboratory, he gives him two options: Let him escape with some samples of the virus or let Padme and Jar Jar get [[ElectricTorture electrocuted]] to death. However, this only delays Anakin, who both saves his friends and eventually captures Vindi.
* ThoseWackyNazis: He seems to be based on Nazi scientists from WWII serials, especially with his [[LargeHam hamminess]].
* VillainOfTheWeek: Somewhat. While he is present in both episodes of the "Blue Shadow Virus" arc, he's already defeated and arrested at the beginning of the arc's second episode, "Mystery of a Thousand Moons". He's most prominent as a threat in "Blue Shadow Virus".

!! Emir Wat Tambor
--> Voiced by: Matthew Wood

* ArcVillain: For the Ryloth arc.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: He's the head of the Techno Union, who has also sided with the Separatists.
* {{Greed}}: His FatalFlaw. Tambor refused to leave without the treasures he had stolen from the Twi'lek people, leading his tactical droid to abandon him for capture by the Republic or death from the impending Separatist bombing.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: Especially notable when compared to [[DirtyCoward Nute Gunray]]. When he was abandoned by his tactical droid and at Mace Windu's mercy, he was prepared to die in the impending Separatist bombing of Lessu, taking the Republic forces with him. Ultimately subverted in that Anakin and Ahsoka [[SavedByCanon were able to take out the Hyena bombers in time]].
* KickTheDog: When Count Dooku makes it clear that he's already lost Ryloth since Mace Windu's leading the liberation force, he orders a fire-bombing campaign on many Twi'lek villages across the planet to send a message about "the price of a Republic victory."
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: He wisely surrenders after the Separatist forces have been defeated and the bombing has been thwarted, all with [[GracefulLoser little fuss]] too.
-->'''Wat Tambor''': What are your terms of surrender?
-->'''Cham Syndulla''': They are unconditional.
-->'''Wat Tambor''': Agreed...
* LittleGreenManInACan: See StarfishAlien below.
* NonActionGuy
* StarfishAlien: Slightly humanoid example. Coming from a planet with a high-pressure atmosphere, Skakoans are required to wear body-concealing (minus parts of their head) pressure suits when offworld. If that suit were to get breached, Tambor would [[ExplosiveDecompression violently]] [[MadeOfExplodium explode]]. Also, the DVD featurette for "Liberty on Ryloth" suggests that Skakoans might not actually have legs (referencing how Tambor's original ILM model didn't have them), hence why Tambor "scoots" when he "walks".
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Tambor was captured at the end of the Ryloth arc, but ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' confirms he and Poggle the Lesser eventually got out of Republic custody. Both he and Poggle make cameos on security camera in the Republic military base on Coruscant in "The Jedi Who Knew Too Much". As of the Season 5 finale, we have yet to see them get out.

!! Prison Warden/Commander Osi Sobeck
[[quoteright:210:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Osi-Sobeck-001_4771.jpg]]
--> Voiced by: Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor

* ArcVillain: The main villain of the Citadel-trilogy
* AxCrazy: When you threaten droids, by "choking" them, you definitely qualify. Also see below at BadBoss.
* BadBoss: He's been known to shoot droids just for mentioning the word "escape".
* BoomHeadshot: Used it on a captured clone.
* CanonImmigrant: Not Sobeck himself, but rather his species, the Phindians, originated in the ExpandedUniverse.
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: His voice is based off of a mix of Al Pacino's and ChristopherWalken's.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Through out his entire trilogy, he was usually only one step behind the heroes, and sometimes he even managed to get ahead of them.
* HoistHeroOverHead / KillItWithFire: He attempted to kill Tarkin by throwing him in a lava lake.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Skewered with Ahsoka's shoto.
* InTheBack: He was stabbed by Ahsoka in the back.
* KilledOffForReal: Courtesy of Ahsoka.
* LargeHam: He ''is'' voiced by Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor doing his ChristopherWalken impression.
* NoMacGuffinNoWinner: He tried to kill Tarkin when it seemed like he wouldn't be able to recapture the escaped prisoners and the intel they carried.
* PrimalStance: His species has this as a default.
* RubberForeheadAlien: He's a Phindian.
* SanitySlippage: By all appearances, he wasn't exactly the picture of sanity before, but as the heroes continually evaded his attempts to recapture them and Count Dooku kept contacting him, he ''really'' started to lose it.
* TwitchyEye: His twitching got worse and worse through out the three episodes as the heroes continued to evade him.
* VillainousBreakdown: Has one over the course of the Citadel arc as the prisoners evade his grasp and is repeatedly chastised by Count Dooku, culminating with his attempt to murder Tarkin.

!! Riff Tamson
[[quoteright:239:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Riff-Tamson-001_5936.jpg]]
--> Voiced by: Gary Anthony Williams

A brutal Karkarodon who served as the Separatist ambassador on Mon Calamari during the King-electing negotiations between the Mon Cala and Quarren.

* {{Ambadassador}}: He was the ambassador of the Separatists during the king election of Mon Calamari. After the negotiations between the Mon Cala and the Quarren went south (not in small part, because of his machinations), he lead the joined Quarren-Separatist forces to battle, and proved to be as badass as expected from a SharkMan.
* AmbitionIsEvil: Count Dooku apparently earned Tamson's loyalty by promising the Karkarodon that he would rule Mon Calamari once it was under Separatist control.
* ArcVillain: Of the Mon Calamari-trilogy.
* AssInAmbassador: Even though he was officially merely an "observer" during the king's election, he had the nerves to talk down to Prince Lee-Char, the rightful heir of the throne, telling him that he didn't earn the right to speak at the gathering.
* {{Badass}}: Swims into the middle of a BeamSpam battle ''unarmed'', then starts tearing combatants apart with his jaws and teeth!
* BadBoss: He threatened, talked down to, and betrayed Nossor Ri and the Quarrens.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: Quite fitting, given that he's a shark-man.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Upon learning that the Jedi disabled the planetary radar, he knew reinforcements were coming.
* EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks
* EvilGloating: Riff gloated to Prince Lee-Char about how he murdered the latter's father.
* EvilIsPetty: He insisted on sentencing Lee-Char to death while sitting on the throne of Mon Calamari.
* EvilSoundsDeep
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: Even by the standards of this series, Tamson's death was ''brutal''.
* FishPeople
* ForTheEvulz: According to him, he would've have tortured the prisoners regardless of whether or not they told him about Lee-Char's whereabouts.
* FrontLineGeneral: Being a humanoid aquatic predator, he'll put his jaws to use while fighting alongside his droids.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Literally. During their final confrontation, Prince Lee-Char took one of his dagger-bombs and used it on him.
* ILied: When the Jedi refuse to tell him about Prince Lee-Char's whereabouts, he puts Anakin on a timer by putting a leak in Padme's diving helmet. Even then, they are unable to tell him, making him assume they don't actually know. Once the prince is captured, he just leaves Padme to drown.
* ImAHumanitarian[=/=]ToServeMan: Not confirmed, but if the Karkaradon habit of killing their enemies with their teeth and being a SharkMan are anything to go by, he may actually eat his enemies, sapient or not.
* {{Jerkass}}: Villainy aside, Tamson is just plain unpleasant.
* KilledOffForReal: It doesn't get much more dead than being blown to bits. We even get a shot of his body-less head sinking to the bottom of the sea.
* LargeHam
* LudicrousGibs: His explosive death.
* MadeOfIron: Ahsoka hit him with her lightsaber once and he was shot several times by Mon Cala soldiers, but they all had very little effect on him. It took a bomb stuck in his shoulder to kill him.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: And he made good use of them in battle.
* SharkMan
* ShoutOut: To ''Film/{{Jaws}}''.
* YouKilledMyFather: Riff is the one who killed Lee-Char's father.

!! Senator Mina Bonteri
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mina-Bonteri-001_5841.jpg]]
--> Voiced by: KathSoucie

An idealist politician from Onderon, Mina Bonteri used to be Padmé Amidala's mentor in the Senate. While Mina believed in the Separatist cause and openly admired Count Dooku, she also sought to stop the spreading violence of the Clone Wars. On Padmé urging, she proposed to open peace-talks with the Republic, which the Separatist Parliament agreed upon. However with this, she became a threat to the Sith plans, and was murdered by Dooku's thugs. She was also the mother of Lux Bonteri.

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Openly admired [[VillainWithGoodPublicity Count Dooku]].
* KilledOffForReal: By Dooku, the man she admittedly admired.
* MissingMom: To Lux.
* NotSoDifferent: On a large scale instead of a personal one. She explains to Ahsoka that both warring sides want the same thing.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Upon learning from Padmé that the Republic Senate was unsure of continuing the war, she was quick to convince the Separatist Senate to open peace negotiations with the Republic. She also accepts Padmé's opinion of Dooku, agreeing to disagree on that.
* ShadowArchetype: She's basically a Separatist-aligned Padmé with a very similar personality and the same goal of finding a peaceful resolution to the war.
* SkunkStripe: A graying streak in her brown hair.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Mina is pretty much the face of innocent people who joined the separatists with noble intentions. Unfortunately, she ends up paying the ultimate price for being a moral person allied with a Sith Lord.
* WideEyedIdealist: It's not hard to see why she and Padmé are friends.
* WidowWoman: Her husband was killed in self-defense during the Clone Wars, exactly one year prior to her introduction in the show and her own subsequent death.

!! Battle Droids
[[quoteright:242:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Battle-Droids-001_2745.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:242:"Roger, roger."]]
--> Voiced by: Matthew Wood

!!! In general, about every types

* FrickinLaserBeams: They use blaster weapons, just like every non-Jedi warrior. Droid blasters are firing [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience red laser beams]].
* LackOfEmpathy: Sort of expected given that they ''are'' machines built to kill.
* MechaMooks
* ZergRush: Individually, even the best types aren't particularly strong or effective, but in large enough numbers they are a legitimate threat even for Jedi. Especially true to the B1-s, and to slightly lesser degree to the B2-s.

!!! B1-, and OOM-series Battle Droids

* ButtMonkey: Especially in Season 1, where almost every episode had them suffer quite amusing defeats.
* CatchPhrase: "Roger, roger."
* CannonFodder: Most of the time, but they do manage to get in their fair share of kills from time to time.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Played with. Most of the time their shots are blocked by the heroes, rather than miss completely.
** Played straight and {{lampshaded}} in "Ambush":
---> '''Droid''': Hold on, almost. *Fires at Yoda's escape pod and completely misses the target*
---> '''Droid commander''': What a terrible shot!
---> '''Droid''': Oh well. It's my programming.
* {{Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain}}s: The B1-s are so inept at times, it's hard not to feel sorry for them.
* KeystoneArmy: Averted. The battle droids are no longer dependent on a central control unit like they were during the [[Film/ThePhantomMenace Battle of Naboo]]. However, because the OOMs and B1s aren't used to being able to think independently, [[TookALevelInDumbass they exhibit a lack of intelligence]] (they are most effective when they have a tactician around) and [[CloudCuckoolander develop odd personality quirks]].
* NothingIsScarier: They can actually be quite intimidating when they're silent. The effect is something like an unending tide of robotic zombies.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Battle droids can be funny... until you see them ruthlessly hunting down stragglers, executing wounded enemies, and so on.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: The B1 battle droids, especially in Season 1 and 2.
* TooDumbToLive: Most of the time, especially in the first season.
* TookALevelInBadass: Throughout the course of the show, their comic relief side has been downplayed more and more to the point that by the time of the fourth season, the only real instance of it was from some Battle Droids reprogrammed to work for the Republic. And as their comic-relief tendencies have decreased, their lethality has noticeably improved.

!!! B2-series

* ArmCannon: One sub-type has some sort of PlasmaCannon instead of a left arm, that they generally use as a bazooka.
* MenOfSherwood: They’re the true counterpart of the clones: they’re more competent than the B1-s, and in large numbers can be very effective, but they’re far from being on EliteMook levels.
* EvilIsBigger: They are larger and bulkier than the B1-s, and much more effective fighters.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Their voice is much deeper than the B1’s, and unsurprisingly they’re far more competent.
* InSeriesNickname: They’re sometimes refered to as "Super Battle Droids".
* JetPack: Another sub-type comes with built-in ones.
* SuperWristGadget: The normal-type ones have dual-blasters built into their wrists.

!!! BX-series Commando Droids

* ConfusionFu: Because of their extreme agility, their movements are hard to predict.
* DressingAsTheEnemy: In their debut episode, they tried to fool Cody and Rex by putting on of them in clone trooper armor.
* EliteMooks: Not quite on the same level as the Droidekas or the Magnaguards, but they’re still more than a match for clones, and they can cause trouble to even Jedi.
* GoddamnedBats: They’re considered as such InUniverse by the Jedi: they’re not likely to kill or injure one, but they can distract them long enough.
* KnightOfCerebus: A rare {{Mook}} example, and for early Season 1 too (even predating Cad Bane). Even though they were defeated in their first appearance, they really showed that not all of the Separatist droids are bumbling comic relief (but even then, that trait seems to only be restricted to the B1s and [=OOMs=]) and could be a legitimate threat. Even in the later seasons, where they became a little more common and slightly more of a pushover, they were still a threat to non-Jedi (to Jedi, they're a nuisance at best).
* MundaneMadeAwesome: They have a human-like build, which allows them to disguise themselves as clone troopers.
* TheMusketeer: They’re using both blasters and vibro-swords, but never at once.

!!! Droidekas (Destroyer Droids)

* AchillesHeel: Despite their reputation, they have several. In addition to being very vulnerable in travel mode, their shields don't protect them from mounted heavy weapons, stationary objects and slow-moving projectiles such as lightly-tossed grenades, and they're blind from behind. The Onderon Rebels were taught about these weaknesses as part of their initial training.
* TheDreaded: Even Jedi are wary of these things, and the only infantry units more dreaded than them are [=MagnaGuards=].
* FragileSpeedster[=/=]MightyGlacier: Depends on the form. They are the former on travel mode, as they can move really fast, but cannot fire and are unprotected. They are the latter in attack mode, where they have a very protective energy shield and [[MoreDakka twin-repeating blasters]], but cannot move very fast.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Provided their enemies don't use any of their [[AchillesHeel Achilles Heels]] against them.
* RollingAttack: They don't normally do this, but Obi-Wan Kenobi used three of them this way when surrounded by squads of other droids.
* TheQuietOne: Unlike most droid infantry units (aside from other anti-infantry units such as Dwarf Spider Droids and Crab Droids), they don't talk.
* TransformingMecha: They can change between their fast-moving but fragile wheel mode and their devastating but slow attack mode.
* TripodTerror: Not as prevalent as the [[HumongousMecha Octuptarra Tri-Droids]], but they do have three legs.

!!! IG-100 [=MagnaGuards=]
[[quoteright:260:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/MagnaGuard-001_608.jpg]]

* BodyguardingABadass: Both Griveous and Dooku uses them as their personal bodyguards, even though both of them are far more competent warriors than these guys.
* EliteMooks: They are the most dangerous droid models in the Separatist army.
* EyesDoNotBelongThere: They have an [[ExtraEyes Extra Eye]] on their abdomen, allowing them to continue fighting even after being decapitated ([[DependingOnTheWriter sometimes]]).
* GlowingMechanicalEyes
* PraetorianGuard
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Although a variant features gold eyes, with matching electro-staffs.
* SimpleStaff: Their weapon of choice.
* ShockAndAwe: Their staffs are electrified.

!!! Infiltrator Droids

* ArmCannon: Their arms end in actual laser canons, instead of the standard blasters.
* CombiningMecha: Subverted. A pair of them can combine into a massive bomb, instead of into a more powerful droid.
* {{Giant Mook}}s: Their battle-mode forms are two-and half meters tall, and rather resilient.
* GlowingMechanicalEyes: Three of them.
* MadeOfIron: Aside from being literarly made of iron of course, their armor is strong enough to withstand repeated blaster fire.
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* ShouldersOfDoom: Justified. Their gigantic shoulder-armours are their unfolded sweeper droid-disguises.
* SuicideAttack: They were designed to self-destruct once they reached their destination.
* TransformingMecha: They can disguise themselves as sweeperdroids.
* AWolfInSheepsClothing: Their disguised form is identical to harmless sweeper droids.

* CreepyMonotone: They can even [[EvilLaugh laugh]] in a monotone.
* TheDragon: They sometimes play this role to the VillainOfTheWeek[=/=]ArcVillain.
* DragonInChief: Emir Wat Tambor's Tactical Droid, TA-175, was this in "Liberty on Ryloth". When Tambor was getting too greedy and trying to get every treasure on Ryloth before leaving Lessu to get bombed, both Count Dooku and TA-175 insisted that Tambor get as much as he realistically can. Once he was ready to leave, TA-175 evacuated without him, leaving him to be captured by the Republic forces.
* EliteMooks: They themselves are this, but the Super Tactical Droids introduced in Season 5 take this further.
* GlowingMechanicalEyes
* MookLieutenant
* OffWithHisHead: They tend to fall victim this, as the Republic forces sometimes try to steal their heads to gain tactical information.
* PaletteSwap: Unlike most Separatists droids, aside from each one having a different voice and number, they all have unique color schemes, regardless of plot importance. [[TropesAreTools From a production standpoint]], this makes it so that the animators don't have to waste their budget creating an organic Separatist commander that's only important for one or two scenes.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Most Tactical Droids have white photoreceptors, but a few, such as General Grievous's Tactical Droid, TV-94 (and TV-94b) have red photoreceptors.
* SmugSnake: Aside from their arrogance and bossiness, one of their biggest weaknesses is that they don't have a realistic assessment of their chances, one of the reasons the Super Tactical Droids were made.
* TheStrategist: They often play this role to coordinate the less intelligent B1s.
* TooDumbToLive: While they are definitely smarter than the B1s and can be effective strategists, they seem to lack a sense of self-preservation programming as Poggle the Lesser's droid TX-21 demonstrated. When Ahsoka Tano stuck an explosive charge to a nigh-invincible Super Tank, all he did was gloat about the tank's superior armor when he was right next to the charge.
* [[HumanShield Twi'lek Shield]]: TX-20 used Nabat's captive population as a shield for the proton cannons providing anti-air support for Ryloth's surface. This doesn't work, [[HoistByHisOwnPetard as he ends up torn apart by said shield]].
* VillainOfTheWeek: The only time a standard Tactical Droid ever played this role was TX-20 in "Innocents of Ryloth". Justified in that TX-20 was the [[PaletteSwap first]] Tactical Droid made production-wise ("Innocents of Ryloth" was produced before "Jedi Crash", the first on-screen appearance of one of the droids).
* WhyAmITicking: When Zygerrian slaver Darts D'Nar planted bombs all over Kiros's city, we secretly placed one bomb in reserve on his Tactical Droid, activating it to distract Obi-Wan. Judging from the droid's reaction, he was not informed of this.

!!! General Kalani
[[quoteright:242:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kalani-001_6096.jpg]]
--> Voiced by: Creator/GreggBerger

* BadassBoast: Surprisingly often for a droid. For instance, when Tandin mentions others will take Saw's place if he dies.
--> '''Kalani''': They too will suffer.
* CreepyMonotone: [[MachineMonotone He is a droid, after all]].
* TheDragon: A small-scale one for Dooku, and his task is to serve as one for [[TyrantTakesTheHelm Sanjay Rash]].
** DragonInChief: Rash is stunningly inept, making Kalani this. To the point that he executes Rash once it's clear the war is lost.
* EliteMooks: Some sort of elite tactical droid, the very first of his kind seen in the series.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: His AchillesHeel. Kalani can't comprehend why the rebels fight. [[spoiler: Which is why he fails to see Tandin's betrayal coming.]]
* EvilSoundsDeep
* [[GlowingMechanicalEyes Glowing Mechanical]] RedEyesTakeWarning: Remarkable because tactical droids tend to have white eyes.
* KarmaHoudini
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Clearly knows the right time to retreat and the right time to attack.
* LackOfEmpathy: For pretty much everyone.
* MeaningfulName: "Kalani" means "Royal One" or "Chieftan", which matches with his status as an [[EliteMooks Elite]] tactical droid and MookLieutenant for the droids.
* MookLieutenant
* ObviouslyEvil: A black droid with a CreepyMonotone and a chassis that resembles a skull. With all of that, it's not hard to guess his moral alignment.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: Mild example, Kalani expresses arrogance and anger occasionally.
* TheStrategist: Being a tactical droid, this is a given. And unlike most tactical droids, he's quite efficient. He even keeps a realistic assessment of his chances, something the standard tactical droid seems to lack.
** DidntSeeThatComing: [[DefectorFromDecadence Tandin's betrayal]] and Ahsoka's participation.
* TortureTechnician
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Delivers it to [[TyrantTakesTheHelm Rash]]. He didn't even need to be ordered.

A former Jedi Master, Dooku left the Order after his former apprentice Qui-Gon Jinn was killed on Naboo. In front of the public he took on the facade of an idealist politican, who went on a crusade against the corrupt and incompetent Republic, seeking to built a better state. However secretly Dooku joined Darth Sidious and became his apprentice, seeking to overthrow the Republic, exterminating the Jedi and conqureing the Galaxy for the Sith.

* MoralMyopia: He sought revenge against Ventress and the Nightsisters for their attempt to assassinate him, disregarding that it was his own (albeit reluctant) attempted murder against Ventress that inspired the attacks.



* UndyingLoyalty: He claimed this towards Darth Sidious in "Nightsisters", and we're given no indication beforehand that he was anything but truthful. Sidious, however, demands proof of this loyalty, and orders Dooku to eliminate Ventress, which, ironically, inspires Dooku to train his next apprentice, Savage Opress, to help him overthrow Sidious.



* WouldHurtAChild: He tried to kill Rotta the Huttlet in the pilot movie, and is more than willing to sentence women and children to work camps beside.



* ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne: Subverted in "Grievous Intrigue". When facing him, Eeth Koth called Grievous, a ''coward and murderer''", in this order. Usually one would expect for the villain to be insulted by being called a coward. Grieous instead took issues with the murderer part, stating that he didn't see getting rid off Jedi as murder.
