The clone troopers were an army of identical, genetically modified clones of Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett created by the cloners of Kamino to serve in the Grand Army of the Republic during the eponymous Clone Wars. They fought under Jedi command to defend Republic sovereignty against the Confederacy of Independent Systems, also known as the Separatist Union.
However, unbeknownst to all but the Kaminoan cloners and certain conspirators in the Republic, the clone troopers were also implanted with mental inhibitor chips that, when activated by the code phrase "Execute Order 66", caused them to kill their Jedi commanders and unquestioningly obey the orders of Chancellor-turned-Emperor Sheev Palpatine. With few exceptions — mainly among genetically defective, brain-damaged, or otherwise modified clones — this order was carried out to the letter.
Shortly after the end of the war, the Galactic Empire mandated the cessation of clone production due to its high cost compared to simply training conscripts and volunteers. While many clones continued to serve the Empire for at least five more years, they were eventually eclipsed by ordinary human soldiers, with the clones eventually becoming a rare sight even in the Stormtrooper Corps. By the time of the Battle of Endor, most clones were either dead from old age or senile, and mostly forgotten by the galaxy.
- Ace Custom: A rite of passage of sorts for clones was to customize their armor, with different paintjobs and gear. Thus, clones that have just graduated from training are dubbed "shinies" due to their clean, still pristine white armor. However, they also tend toward a degree of conformity within their squads, to demonstrate brotherhood-within-brotherhood. In practice, this makes it possible for viewers to tell them apart. This also extends to scars, tattoos, and haircuts.
- Adaptation Relationship Overhaul:
- Clones and Jedi's relationship in Legends differ a great deal compared to The Clone Wars (and by extension the canon). In the former, their relationship was much more uneasy, mainly due to Jedi viewing the clones' Blind Obedience and My Country, Right or Wrong mentality with weariness, while clones disliked the dismissive way they were viewed and how many had died under their Jedi Commanders' watch. As such, while they fought along with one another, it often leaned towards Teeth-Clenched Teamwork, and many clones had little issue with executing the Jedi they served with, though not all followed through with it. In The Clone Wars (as well as the canon as a whole), most Jedi and clones tend to have a much healthier relationship, with the Jedi treating the clones with respect and encouraging their individuality, and both parties are shown to greatly trust one another, though this sentiment is not universal for Jedi or clones alike.
- In Legends, all ARC troopers and approximately three fourths of all clone commandos adopted the Mandalorian culture during training, thanks to the former being trained by Jango Fett personally, and the latter by the Cuyval Darnote , a group of a hundred mercenaries hired by Fett to train the commandos, of which seventy five were Mandalorian. After the Clone Wars kicked off, ARC Trooper Alpha-17 recalled a large number of clone commanders back to Kamino to train them in ARC trooper tactics, with many of the commanders adopting the culture and incorporating traditional Mandalorian imagery such as the kama and jaig eyes into their armor. After the Disney buyout, Alpha-17 was adapted out, and it took six years in real life to recanonize that Jango Fett was even a Mandalorian in the first place. The Cuyval Dar is still kind of canon, with The Clone Wars showing mercenaries on Kamino training clones, but the only confirmed member to be a Mandalorian is Fenn Rau. As of yet, theres no direct canonical link between the kama and the Mandalorians, but jaig eyes are still a Mandalorian symbol of honor, making it rather strange that Rex and Blackout wear them despite showing no other ties to Mandalore.
- Adaptational Angst Upgrade: In Legends, Order 66 was always an emergency protocol known to clones and authorities. In The Clone Wars (and by extension canon), Order 66 is enforced via a control chip that the Kaminoans secretly implanted into the clone troopers' brains. It also counts as Adaptational Heroism, since in Legends the clones who executed their Jedi commanders chose to do so. A few of them chose not to, however, and either went AWOL themselves or allowed the Jedi to escape, which wasn't possible in canon without disabling the chip.
- Adaptational Badass: In Legends, it was actually very rare to see clones do anything exceptional if they weren't Commandos or ARC Troopers, and were largely just red shirts. While clones still have aspects of red shirts in the new canon, it's shown that Captains, Commanders, and even regular troopers are all shown to take care of hordes of droids on their own.
- Adaptational Heroism: Due to the nature of Order 66 and the mutual respect between clones and Jedi, clones did not choose to betray the Jedi, nor was their widespread resentment between both parties a thing. They are instead Brainwashed and Crazy, though some clones still indicate that their betrayal was More Than Mind Control.
- Adaptational Intelligence: A downplayed variation. Clones are shown to be less drone-like in canon than in Legends. They have developed their own identities and names very early into the Clone Wars (Legends indicates that it wasn't until Anakin named Alpha that any of the clones had formed identities for themselves), which leads to them lacking Blind Obedience for the vast majority and being more outspoken, as well as pulling off more creative feats than shown previously.
- Adaptational Wimp: ARC Troopers are supposed to be extra-ordinarily good troopers, being considered The Cavalry in Legends to the Jedi themselves when in a tight pinch. Canon, however, treats being an ARC Trooper as more of a rank as opposed to uniquely-grown clones and does nothing to demonstrate their capabilities to differentiate them from any other clone. In fact, nearly every ARC introduced during the Domino Squad arc dies not long after they're introduced.
- All for Nothing: Ultimately, after everything they went through during the Clone Wars, the Clone Trooper program was unceremoniously scrapped by the Empire, who neither gave them any support post-retirement, or any sort of reward for their wartime heroism, being barely considered citizens. By the time of the Empire's fall, less than thirty years after the Clone Wars began, the clones themselves were almost extinct and their contributions to the galaxy were all but forgotten.
- Ambiguously Brown: As a result of Jango Fett being their genetic template, all of the clones have medium dark skin tones, dark eyes, and black hair.
- And I Must Scream: The clones are all completely aware of what they're doing after Order 66 goes down, and unable to do anything about it no matter how much they try Fighting from the Inside.
- Armor Is Useless: Downplayed. Average blaster fire can go through their standard armor pretty easily, but they tend to withstand blunt force trauma. Clone Commandos avert this completely, with their helmets being able to take much more punishment from enemy shots and the same goes for their armor.
- Ascended Extra: The Clone Wars gives a significant amount of clone troopers their own identities, personalities, and friendships with their Jedi generals. This makes it all the more tragic when Palpatine executes Order 66, which results in the clone troopers being brainwashed and their bonds with the Jedi becoming moot.
- Awesome, but Impractical: In the long run. Their heritage, genetic modifications and life-long training regimen make clones far more efficient than an army of conscripted soldiers could ever be. That said, raising clones is expensive; every single one needs to be fed, housed, trained and given ample supplies, only to risk certain death by going into battle.
- Their entire creation and training are this. In order to have a viable army quicker, clone troopers age at least twice as quickly as normal humans, meaning they go from their physical prime to old men in less than two decades. They are in addition only educated on military topics, meaning their life-skills are basically non-existent.
- The Phase I armor. It looks really cool, and has a lot of useful features, but Expanded Universe material isn't shy to describe the armor as clunky, claustrophobic and uncomfortable, because the armor was designed in entirety by the Kaminoans, who had little to no prior experience with humans or their bodies.
- Badass Army: Justified in that they are genetically altered to be more badass than the average human in addition to being fully mechanized, well equipped, and skilled in combat.
- Badass Normal: They are not Force-sensitive, but that doesn't stop them from kicking the asses of "clankers" even when facing impossible odds.
- Band of Brothers: Both literally and figuratively. Every clone trooper has the same genetic "father", Jango Fett, and thus they see each other as literal brothers in arms.
- BFG: Some of their guns are huge:
- The standard DC-15A battle rifle is a monstruosity 1.3 meters long, at full power capable of opening a 0.5 meters crater into ferrocrete at ten kilometers and punching through the armor of a light tank at one, let alone any battle droids. Sadly, the size and power of the gun make it impractical away from open fields, forcing the Clones to rely on the smaller and weaker DC-15S carbine when they fight in enclosed spaces or care to avoid collateral damage.
- The reciprocating quad blaster is a repeating blaster with four reciprocating barrels... Just smaller of the Millennium Falcon's guns. The user needs a specialized rig equipped with small repulsorlifts to carry it around with its tibanna gas, power cells, and coolant systems, but when the situation calls for it the weapon can shred enemy infantry and light vehicles with ease.
- The Z-6 rotary blaster cannon is effectively a blaster minigun, just small enough to be portable.
- Blood Knight: Typically of clones, they tend to live for the chance to prove themselves in battle, which helps the fact they're bred for wartime.
- Born into Slavery: Ultimately what their situation is. The clones are considered less of an army of recruits than a product the Kaminoans are contracted to manufacture for the Republic. They're grown in labs on one of the most isolated worlds known to the galaxy, then put through a brutal, decade-long training regimen that gives them no skills outside of those relevant for warfare, before being shipped out to fight and die in a war they have zero stake in for a government that considers them to be military hardware instead of citizens. It's even more obvious after the Empire takes over, where remaining clones either get forced into menial labor duties, made to train Stormtrooper cadets, or just thrown out into the galaxy and left to rot.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: The Order 66 protocol causes any clone trooper to become violently hostile towards the Jedi because of a control chip that's been implanted into their brains. This also appears to have dramatic effects on their temperaments, as just about every clone becomes noticeably more aggressive, acting much more like their successors; the Stormtroopers.
- Clones Are People, Too: The Clone Wars takes pains to emphasize this point. It's to the point where the implication is fairly clear that the clone troopers are going out of their way to create personalities for themselves, adopting nicknames, hairstyles, tattoos, and helmet art (kill counts are a favorite). They even paint nose art on their LAATs.
- Cloning Blues: It is featured in several episodes of The Clone Wars, when they have to face being left to die or outright sent to their deaths in senseless missions.
- Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: When they first appear in Attack of the Clones, most clone troopers have colored stripes on their arms and helmets to denote rank (plain white for soldiers, green for sergeants, blue for lieutenants, red for captains, and yellow for commanders). By the time of Revenge of the Sith and the end of the war, most clones had abandoned this practice in favor of custom colors and patterns that match their battalion and role within the Grand Army.
- Cool Helmet: It's part of their armor in addition to looking very cool. Eventually, it gets modified to become the basis of the stormtrooper helmet.
- Crippling Overspecialization: How clone troopers were largely viewed by the Emperor and why they were allowed to go out of service. They are, for the most part, pretty great soldiers, and in times of warfare, can pull off some fantastic gambits and win several battles. However, outside of being soldiers, they have little knowledge and experience. As such, the Empire found the much more present, flexible, and renewable conscripts to be a much better choice in occupying most of the known galaxy, as they wouldn't have to deal with the troubles of cloning that way.
- Deadpan Snarker: Most of the clone troopers are fantastic world-weary snarkers with dry and sardonic senses of humor.Dragonfly-mounted Aleena: [jubilantly] Kazabanee!! [dragonfly dives]
Warthog: Great. It's gonna be another one of those planets.
- Defector from Decadence: Not all clone troopers are subjugated to Order 66. Clone Force 99 (sans Crosshair) defected not long after the Empire has been established while Rex, Gregor, and Wolffe, manage to have their inhibitor chips removed and eventually join the Rebel Alliance.
- The Dog Bites Back: Of the non-violent variety. After being treated as property by the Kaminoans throughout the Clone Wars while the Republic ignores them, when the Empire comes around, they are the ones who treat the Kaminoans as property with help from the Empire.
- Dual Wielding: Arc Troopers tended to dual wield pistols on the regular, as did some clones who served as Captains and Commanders of their unit.
- Dude, Where's My Reward?: The surviving clone troopers got the shaft when it came to receiving compensation for their service, instead being assigned to provide labor for the Empire.
- Duplicate Divergence: As clones, they were intended to be an army of perfectly interchangeable and replaceable soldiers, but over time their individual experiences lead their personalities to develop along markedly different paths.
- The Clone Wars shows that as the war progressed, the clones began to customize their armour with accessories and paint jobs. Many clones also modified their bodies with different hairstyles, facial hair, and even tattoos and battle scars as an expression of their increasing individuality.
- Dying Race: Production of clone troopers was halted and the Kaminoan cloning facilities were destroyed shortly after the establishment of the Galactic Empire. With the loss of the original facilities and no remaining pure sources of Jango Fett's DNA to start up any new ones, the clones that survived the Clone Wars were the last of their kind that could ever exist. Thanks to their incurable accelerated aging, they were doomed to go from an army of millions to complete extinction within a few decades at maximum. The only known exceptions in the current canon are Boba Fett (who ages at a normal rate), Omega (who also appears to age naturally) and Kix (who was frozen in stasis until the timeframe of The Force Awakens).
- Elite Mook: They may be mere foot soldiers, but each clone trooper is a highly trained elite soldier that are individually about as valuable valuable as tens, if not hundreds of their battle droid counterparts.
- They, along with Clone Commandos, also serve as this to their Stormtrooper successors.
- Elites Are More Glamorous: Captains, Commanders, and Arc Troopers tend to stick out more due to their equipment, kamas, and helmets varying significantly from the average soldier.
- Evil Costume Switch: The Bad Batch shows most clone troopers (albeit likely due to regulation more so than free will) ditched their customized armor shortly after the end of the Clone War, replacing it with plain, uniform white Phase-2 clone trooper kits during the early days of the Galactic Empire. Likewise, their vehicles and starships were stripped of their coloured Republic livery, leaving only the plain grey colouring of the Imperial Army and Navy.
- Evil Sounds Deep: Once Order 66 has been commenced, the clones' speech tone become harsher and deeper.
- Expendable Clone: Subverted; although they were created by the Kaminoans for this purpose, the Jedi consider the clone troopers to be people of their own and are willing to help them if need be.
- FaceHeel Turn: En masse once Order 66 is issued, though not of their own will.
- Faceless Goons: Not that their helmets do much good, since they all have the same face underneath. Of course, given their tendency to customize said armor, the older, more experienced clone troopers can be identified by how their armor looks rather than how the face under it looks.
- Fallen Hero: They are forced to go from being honorable guardians of the Republic to fascists after the Republic becomes the Empire.
- Fantastic Racism: The Stormtroopers that replace them hold them in quite low regard, viewing them as something below people since they were grown in the lab. The Clones return the sentiment, considering the Stormtroopers undisciplined and inept.
- Standard Clones and Clone Force 99 have a dislike for each other, with the Bad Batch dismissively calling standard Clone Troopers "Regs", and said Clones viewing 99 in an equally dim light.
- Fate Worse than Death: Post-Order 66. For a time, they stayed in active duty, but were forced to completely abandon the individualism afforded to them by the Jedi and Republic, only for the Clone Trooper program to be scrapped later on. What remained for the Grand Army was then basically left to rot, barely considered citizens, with no compensation or recognition to speak of, forced to live in rapidly aging bodies, with no actual skills outside combat, reliving their wartime trauma and the involuntary betrayal of their Jedi Generals. Those that were "lucky" enough to remain in service became little more than slaves for the Empire, or forced into training their replacements, the Stormtroopers.
- That said, some lucky Clones that managed to escape the Empire's reach did get to live actual lives. Though even those clones had to live with rapidly aging bodies, basically no marketable skills, and the added pressure of being considered defectors and liable for execution if found by the Empire.
- Clones who remained active in the Empire's armed forces for long enough to age out of combat effectiveness faced the worst fate of all: being used as test subjects for conversion into the Empire first generation of cyborg Purge Troopers.
- Gang of Hats: Since they're all genetically the same person, Clone identity is based on small details such as personality quirks, specific deeds or how they style themselves, since they are some of the few ways to differentiate a whole group of identical people.
- Good-Guy Bar: For an arguable definition of "good guy" that varies on an individual basis, but the clones who are off-duty on Coruscant are shown to have a favorite hang-out spot: 79's, a cantina that caters to clones in particular, as shown in The Clone Wars episode "Orders".
- Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: While they almost always wear their helmets in combat situations, before their FaceHeel Turn they often take them off in more casual settings. After Order 66 goes live, the only clones who show their faces are the ones who avoided being brainwashed.
- Humongous Mecha: Like the Galactic Empire the Republic turned into later, the clone army had a number of these; including the All-Terrain Tactical Enforcer (heavy armor/troop carrier), the All-Terrain Attack Pod (mobile artillery), the Self-Propelled Heavy Artillery-Turbolaser (heavy artillery), and the All-Terrain Open Transport (clone trooper carrier).
- Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: Zig-zagged and downplayed. While they tend to miss a lot in large scale battles, they're not nearly as bad as the Separatist droids or the stormtroopers, and when it counts they usually manage to hit the target, most notably during the execution of Order 66.
- Incapable of Disobeying: Once Order 66 takes effect, all clones permanently fell under control of the Empire via their bio-chips and are unable to resist unless they have their chips removed. Rex and Wrecker found out the hard way.
- Informed Attribute: Arc Troopers are supposed to be some of the best trained troopers, just below Commandos in terms of skill and significantly above the likes of regular clones. However, this falls flat when nearly every named Arc Trooper ends up dying just as often as any other clone, with nothing making them stand out rather than a change in uniform.
- Leitmotif: The Clone Wars first introduces their distinctive theme that often plays during clone-focused moments, and continues to be used in later animated series.
- Madness Mantra: When they turn due to Order 66: "Good soldiers follow orders."
- Malevolent Masked Men: They become this after their FaceHeel Turn.
- Manchurian Agent: Unbeknownst to them, the Jedi, and the Senate, each clone trooper has a control chip implanted in their brain that contains Protocol 66: a program that forces them to execute the Jedi if the order is given, regardless if they want to or not. The Clone Wars presents that Ahsoka removed Rex's chip before he could kill her, and Rebels featured a few clones that removed their chips as well.
- Man in a Kilt: Many clone troopers with higher ranks wear kamas, including the likes of Rex, Wolffe, Fox, Colt, Havoc, Bly, Ponds, Bacara, Fil, Keeli, Jet, and Doom. Though kamas do serve a practical purpose, providing added protection from shrapnel.
- Men of Sherwood: They're a competent army, perfectly capable of handling the Separatist droid army. Individuals and smaller groups, however, tend to fill in all ranges from Red Shirt Army through Mauve Shirts to Badass Army.
- Mini-Mecha: The All-Terrain Reconnaissance Transport (AT-RT), a smaller predecessor to the Imperial AT-DP and AT-ST. It is essentially an armed motorcycle with legs that functions as a cavalry unit.
- Mirroring Factions: With the Battle Droids they fight. In the end, both are artificially created soldiers created for the benefit of Palpatine. It hits home even more post-Order 66, when the Clones inhibitor chips kick in and effectively erase any personality or emotion from them, basically making them flesh and blood Battle Droids.
- Modified Clone: Genetically engineered to age at twice the normal human rate and to be more obedient.
- More Than Mind Control: While the inhibitor chip is a major factor for the clones to execute Order 66, it's only there to ensure that even good clones will execute their Jedi friends rather than helping them escape. Some clones truly believe that the Jedi turned against the Republic and wouldn't need an inhibitor chip to carry it out. The best way to determine which clones were truly brainwashed and which were not is to see their reactions to the Empire's growing tyranny months after Order 66. If they do not resist or even question the morality of their orders, they are the ones who would have carried out Order 66 regardless of the chip.
- The influence on the clone's minds didn't end with Order 66. Clone Troopers that served the Empire in its early days were noticeably more cold, brutal, and less individualistic than they had been during the Clone Wars. The transformation into fanatically loyal merciless enforcers was partially due to their implanted chips and partially due to the tyrannical policies of the Empire. Only a rare few clones with active chips were able to hold on to their morals and disobey orders, but they were usually quickly weeded out by their former brothers.
- The greatest influence the chips had can be seen in regards to the Jedi. The clones are not simply programmed to kill the Jedi, but have an almost fanatical hatred of them subconsciously implanted by the chip after Order 66. They firmly believed that the Jedi as a whole were traitors who deserved nothing short of death, even if the clone personally knew that couldn't be true. Even after having their chips removed, some clones still have knee-jerk reactions to attack a Jedi before they can regain their senses.
- My God, What Have I Done?: Zig-Zagged. Some clones had a very hard time coming to terms with what they did after being brainwashed by the control chips and forced to execute Order 66. However, Dark Lord of the Sith shows that many of them genuinely believed that the Jedi were the traitors and they show no regret for Order 66. Some even become Purge Troopers and Stormtroopers. The most deciding factor tends to be how close a companion and soldier they were to their Jedi general when forced to kill them. For shinies and those who never served a Jedi directly they had no reason to question the order, while those who did are left wondering why they just killed their friend.
- My Greatest Failure: Those clones who had their inhibitor chips removed after Order 66 were appalled at their part in the Jedi Purge, and continued to feel the shame and regret for years afterwards.
- Nature Versus Nurture: An interesting example; they're all genetically identical, they are for all intents and purposes the same person, all growing up and being trained on Kamino, but in the end, their individual experiences growing up molded each and every one of them into a unique person, with massive differences in personality between "brothers".
- A Nazi by Any Other Name: After the rise of the Empire. Just like the Stormtroopers that come after them, the Clones were complicit in enforcing Palpatine's will, usually through an iron grip on the worlds they occupy, and violence against opposition.
- Neural Implanting: The Clone Wars reveals that the inhibitor chips were put into the brains of the clone troopers by Palpatine, so they be able to carry out Order 66.
- No Saving Throw: Once activated, the inhibitor chips are impossible for a clone to disobey. The strongest willed clones could only muster up enough strength to momentarily hesitate or shout a warning before being forced to attack their Jedi targets to the best of their ability. Even the mutant clone of the Bad Batch are not immune should their chips manage to activate. The only clones with chips left unaffected either had their's rendered non-functional by damage or missed Palpatine's order by desertion and freak chance.
- Non-Uniform Uniform: Most of them have their armor slightly modified. It's a significant sign of how badly they've been corrupted by the nascent Empire in The Bad Batch when most of them are decked out in the vanilla white armor after Order 66.
- Old Soldier: By the time of the Empire, any Republic-era clone still alive was getting seriously up there in age as a result of their rapid aging. In less than a decade, all but the youngest clones were physically too old for active duty.
- One-Man Army: Clone Commandos are known for this, being bred to be the very best of the clone army, and being given access to some of the best equipment in the Republic's forces to bring down Separatists locations even Jedi would struggle to complete. The trade off being that there's only a handful of them, and they tend to operate in groups of one to four.
- Only Six Faces: Only One Face if you want to get technical (and maybe six outfits). See Clones Are People, Too above.
- Propaganda Hero:
- Proud Warrior Race Guy: Given their genetic template and a number of their instructors all being Mandalorian, clone troopers tend to adopt a certain level of Mandalorian culture, including Mandalorian armor markings and the usage of their language. This is far less prominent in canon than Legends, however, with the only hints at this still present in canon are the jaig eyes that some officers like Rex wear on their helmets.
- Punch-Clock Villain: The clone troopers become this in Revenge of the Sith almost to the point of being Affably Evil due to the fact that they're brainwashed by an inhibitor chip that has been implanted into their brains and forced to kill any Jedi that they see because of said chip. There is also the friendship between Obi-Wan and Cody, their utter lack of enjoyment in executing Order 66, their sincere-sounding apology when they tell Bail Organa to turn around and walk away from the burning Jedi Temple... plus their suffering from Cloning Blues.
- Quantity vs. Quality:
- While the number of clone troopers bred by the Kaminoans was never even close to the massive number of battle droids built by the Separatists, the clones were much more effective combatants on a one on one basis, especially compared to the dumb, disposable B1 battle droids that made up the bulk of the CIS droid army. Clones were able to think creatively, better adapt to changing circumstances, cross-train on multiple types of vehicles and vessels as required, and even disobey or reinterpret bad orders if necessary. In Rebels, veteran clone Captain Rex mentions his personal kill count of "Clankers" was probably in the tens of thousands, with no hint of exaggeration.
- The clones themselves get hit with the downside of this after the end of the Clone Wars, as shown in the Bad Batch series. Clones are highly effective soldiers, but also very expensive to grow and train. Within days of the formation of the Empire, Admirals Tarkin and Rampart are already working to replace the clone army with new legions of natural-born replacement Stormtroopers, who can be recruited, trained, and replaced in large numbers in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the price that Kamino would charge for making more clones.
- Rapid Aging: The clones age twice as fast as a normal human. The Kaminoans were contracted to make a skilled army fast, so they designed the clones to go from birth, to training, to combat as quickly as they could without compromising the clones' mental stability and combat effectiveness. The fact that this effectively cut the clones' lifespan in half wasn't much of a concern as they were always meant to be disposable.
- Recurring Dreams: The Clone Wars' Order 66 arc implies that all clones have recurring nightmares they never remember about carrying out Order 66 as a side effect of their control chips.
- Red Shirt Army: Despite the new canon focusing greatly on clones, a large number of them still exist simply to die once they're on screen.
- Retired Badass: After the Clone Wars, the survivors were eventually relieved from combat and were reassigned to assist in laborious tasks or act as instructors for natural born recruits until their aging caught up with them.
- Sanity Has Advantages: Clones under the influence of the inhibitor chips were fanatically loyal to the Empire and lost any prior moral inhibitions to following orders, but they suffered noticeable drop in combat effectiveness. They were assigned to duties significantly different than the ones they trained for in the Clone Wars, but were unable to fully adapt as they had lost most of their ability to think independently and creatively.
- Serkis Folk: In Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, the clone troopers were recorded via motion-capture and copied numerous times.
- Servant Race: They were created for the sole purpose of "serving" the Republic as expendable soldiers. This was brought up several times throughout the Clone Wars, arguing that once the war is done there would be no place for them.
- Shell-Shocked Veteran: A lot of the surviving clone troopers became this after the execution of Order 66 and as such were reassigned to work elsewhere.
- Standard Sci-Fi Army: Every category available is used by the Grand Army of the Republic. Although, droids serve as support roles.
- Super Prototype: The Grand Army of the Republic is a much more efficient fighting force than their stormtrooper successors, in no small part due to them being tank-bred for that very purpose. The stormtroopers, on the other hand, consist of conscripts whose training contains almost as much patriotic and Imperial cult brainwashing as actual combat training. After the Clone Wars, clone production was discontinued and those remaining clones served until they succumbed to Rapid Aging, rendering them non-viable within a decade. Justified in that the stormtroopers are a very large and general army designed for galactic occupation, while the clone troopers are a comparatively very small fully mechanized Elite Army designed to strike key targets and stiffen local militias (like the Wookiees). That and the production of clone troopers is far more expensive than recruiting and training from the civilian population.
- Super Soldier: They're considered superior to any Separatist droid army due to their capacity to think and act for themselves, but they're also genetically altered to make them more docile and willing to take orders.
- That Thing Is Not My Child!: An interesting variation, Jango is obviously well-aware of the clones, and has no issue with them existing, having even personally trained some of them, but he makes it explicitly known that the clones, except Boba are not his children, nor his brothers, a view Boba also adopted.
- Trigger Phrase: "Execute Order 66".
- Took a Level in Jerkass: Post-Order 66. Ignoring the whole Jedi-killing thing, the inhibitor chip also affected their general personalities, becoming far more unpleasant overall, even to their own.
- Undying Loyalty: The clones developed an intense mutual respect, friendship, and camaraderie with their Jedi commanders over the course of the Clone Wars, in large part because of a combination of Authority Equals Asskicking, Front Line General, and belief that Clones Are People, Too on the part of the Jedi. It's best exemplified in the final story arc, when Ahsoka rejoins the 501st for the final battle on Mandalore after having earlier been expelled from the Jedi Order on false charges. The entire 501st painted their helmets with a representation of her facial markings prior to meeting her in formation. It's this loyalty that Palpatine cruelly exploited as part of Order 66: The mutual trust ran so deeply that it facilitated the clones catching their commanders by surprise. The inhibitor chip itself enforced this same sense of loyalty... to Palpatine.
- Unwitting Pawn: Ultimately, their true purpose was to eradicate their Jedi Generals and pave the way for Palpatine to found his Galactic Empire, a mission they never even knew about until their Order 66 programming kicked in.
- Well-Trained, but Inexperienced: The clones at the beginning of the Clone Wars had trained for their entire lives in simulations and practice battles, but never had their lives on the line beforehand.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Sometime in the early days of the Empire, the clones just vanished from the battlefields and were replaced by ensign stormtroopers. Most of them were instead ungratefully shoveled into some menial job for the Empire, and most of them had succumbed to their rapid aging by the fall of the Empire.
- What Measure Is a Mook?: Good guy example. They were designed to be an army's worth of soldiers manufactured specifically for military service, but with more mindfulness than battle droids. The Jedi that commanded them encouraged individuation, which they definitely engaged in.
- White Mask of Doom: A staple that carries over to their successors, the stormtroopers.
- You Are Number 6: Played with. Every clone is given an ID number at birth rather than a name. However, most clones end up adopting or name for themselves or being either one they chose or a nickname given by their fellow clones on the battlefield. For example, CT-7567 goes almost exclusively by the name "Rex".
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Non-lethal example. Most clone troopers are eventually decommissioned in favor of human conscripts during the age of the Empire. Only a few stayed to become stormtroopers in the Imperial Army or military instructors in Imperial Academies. Most Imperials don't think much of the clones who are decommissioned or retired, either, as they often dismiss the retired clones as senile due to their Rapid Aging.
- Younger Than They Look:
- Their accelerated growth means that they look twice as old as they actually are. Most of the clone troopers who served in the Clone Wars were basically children, with little in the way of life skills outside of combat.
- This trope also applies to their biological ages. By the end of the war, the oldest members were biologically 26 years old, but looked like they were at least 30's, and Temuera Morrison was in his early 40s at the time of filming.
- To put in perspective Bad Batch introduces Omega, one of the original clones of Jango Fett. By the time the Clone War ends she seems no older than 15 as she was allowed to age normally. In contrast, the aforementioned Bad Batch, clones bred for active service all look to be in their 30s but their Tag Along Kid member is their senior by years.
- Zerg Rush: While the Jedi were indeed more powerful due to their lightsabers and force abilities, the clone troopers were ultimately able to defeat them by simply outnumbering them and shooting them while their backs were turned.
212th Attack Battalion
Clone Marshal Commander Cody (CC-2224)
Cody was a Clone Marshal Commander in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. He served as Commander of the 7th Sky Corps, as well as the 212th Attack Battalion, a sub-unit of the 7th in addition to being the second-in-command to Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi.
- Ace Custom: Cody's armor, which has been heavily modified to include a bunch of extra features and cosmetic touches.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: He's not just any clone with a rank. He's a Clone Marshal Commander, one of the absolute highest ranks attainable for any one clone trooper.
- Big Brother Instinct: As one of the oldest and highest ranking clones, Cody frequently shows concern for the well-being of his many clone-brothers, and is visibly angry when others disregard or mistreat them. When Cody finds out that several of his brothers are being held prisoner on Krystar and will eventually be sold into slavery, he insists that they stage a rescue operation immediately."These are our brothers we're talking about. If they're being secretly held as prisoners of war, we must do something about it."
- Big Damn Heroes: He and his clone troopers show up just in time to save Obi-Wan and assist him in taking down General Grievous.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Due to the control chip that is located in his brain, Cody gets brainwashed and turns on Obi-Wan during the Battle of Utapau after the execution of Order 66.
- Captain Smooth and Sergeant Rough: He is the smooth to Rex's rough, much like the Jedi they work under. Rex is hardheaded and eventually questions the war and the role of the clone troopers in it while Cody remains calm, civil, and by-the-book even until the end.
- Commanding Coolness: His rank is Clone Marshal Commander, although that is often simply shortened to Commander. Clone Marshal Commander is also the highest rank a clone trooper can achieve, with only Cody, Bly and Bacara identified as holding this rank. Notably, his armor also has a rank insignia plaque to show how awesomely prominent this rank is, as only non-clone officers usually have the plaque on their uniforms.
- Deadpan Snarker: Although it tends to be rather understated, Cody does have a snarky and dark sense of humor that meshes well with Obi-Wan's.
- Flat Character: There's not much to Cody besides being a straightforward, professional soldier, and in contrast to Rex, Fives, or many others, he doesn't get any dedicated spotlight episodes.
- The Friend Nobody Likes: Inverted. People who typically dislike clones, such as Quinlan Vos and the Bad Batch, tend to like and respect him.
- The Generic Guy: Outside of his accomplishments, there isn't a lot to him. He seems to be a pretty standard clone commander without any crazy personality quirks. This is even reflected in his design, under his mask, he hasn't changed his hairstyle, gotten tattoos or dyed his hair like most other named clones, looking pretty much the same as all clones start out, barring some facial scars.
- Good Old Fisticuffs: Unlike other clones in the series, Cody is shown to suffer no ill-effects or broken bones from punching or kicking the heads off battle droids, and even comes out of dog-piling General Grievous with no more than a few scratches.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has a pretty nasty-looking one running down from beside his left eye.
- Irony: In Revenge of the Sith, Cody returns Obi-Wan's lightsaber before being brainwashed into executing Order 66. Had it been the other way around, Obi-Wan would've had to leave Utapau without his lightsaber (even if he might not be necessarily killed, with or without the lightsaber, as the film presents that he survives the fall).
- In the final arc of The Clone Wars, which takes place shortly before the Battle of Coruscant, Obi-Wan saves Cody's life when a Separatist tank opens fire on him. Come Revenge of the Sith, when Order 66 goes out, Cody orders a tank to fire on Obi-Wan.
- It's Personal: When the Separatists attack Kamino, Cody and the other clone troopers get pretty angry since it's their homeworld and where they have a lot of younger brothers living.Cody: This is personal for us clones.
- The Lancer: To General Kenobi.
- Made of Iron: Punching and kicking battle droids doesn't hurt or slow him down at all, nor does punching and jumping on General Grievous in an attempt to rip out his exposed throat.
- Noodle Incident: His history with the Bad Batch has yet to be explained, but they clearly respect him more than any other "reg" clone trooper and he becomes a lot more friendly around them.
- Number Two: He is also this to General Kenobi.
- The Reliable One: Obi-Wan doesn't hesitate to praise Cody for his brilliant tactical mind and unfailing dependability. Other clones clearly view him as this as well, especially Rex and the Bad Batch.
- Remember the New Guy?: Played Straight In Revenge Of The Sith, as Cody's first interaction in that movie is asking when he's ever let Kenobi down, despite this being the very first time he was on screen. Subverted afterwards, as supplimental materials make it clear Kenobi and Cody had been working closely together for years.
- Satellite Character: His role as Kenobi's second-in-command is his entire character.
- Scars are Forever: He is heavily scarred around his left eye.
- Schrödinger's Canon: In Legends, he continued to serve the Empire, eventually becoming bitter and disillusioned with the Empire and the stormtrooper corps. This has yet to be re-canonized and he's almost unmentioned in canon after Revenge of the Sith except for a namedrop from Rex in Rebels, and a magazine that said he survived into the Imperial era and participated in the Empire's mass enslavement of the Wookiees on Kashyyyk.
- Shout-Out: He's named in homage to Commando Cody, the Republic serial hero.
- Solar and Lunar: The solar to Rex and the 501st's lunar, with his organish-yellow armor sporting a sunburst on both the torso and helmet.
- The Stoic: He tends not to show much emotion, but does exchange a few jokes with Kenobi after serving with him for awhile and clearly cares for the well-being of his clone-brothers.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Nothing is known of what happened to Cody after the formation of the Empire in canon. Legends had him training non-clone stormtroopers until at least a year before the Battle of Yavin, a job he deeply despised.
Captain Gregor (CC-5576-39)
Gregor was a clone commando who served in Foxtrot Group of the 212th Attack Battalion. He went missing during the Battle of Sarrish, suffered amnesia and found himself working in a low-wage diner on the desolate world of Abafar before the D-Squad comes to the planet by accident.
- Amnesiac Dissonance: Initially, before Gascon and the droids make him remember his past.
- Ascended Extra: He went from being a one-shot character in The Clone Wars to a supporting character in Rebels.
- Beard of Sorrow: While he had amnesia and was working as a dishwasher at the diner. After Gascon convinced him that he was a soldier, he shaved it off.
- Blood Knight: Pretty standard for clone troopers. This mostly shows when he jumps at the chance to get back into a fight, both when he starts to regain his memories during the Clone Wars, and again 15 years later when the Empire attack his and his two brothers' AT-TE walker. "Why spoil the fun? We haven't been shot at in years!"
- Bolivian Army Ending: In "Missing in Action", he faces down ever-increasing numbers of battle droids with nothing but his rifle, culminating in him setting off an explosion which takes out the shuttleport. His fate is left ambiguous until Bad Batch and Rebels, which reveals he survived.
- Centipede's Dilemma: While he had doubts about himself, he was unable to even take his blaster back from his master. Once he stopped doubting himself, he instantly returned to being the One-Man Army he really was.
- Characterization Marches On: Rebels portray him as a Laughing Mad Cloudcuckoolander, which contrasts the rather strait-laced and serious character he is in The Clone Wars, which is justified by his senility though it is later implied that his eccentric behavior is an act. The Bad Batch depicts him with a mix of both portrayals, implying that his personality change was the result of brain damage sustained during "Missing in Action" which gradually got worse over time.
- He becomes senile in his older years, laughing all the time and tricking Zeb into acting as bait for a Sand Worm. Apparently the former head trauma didn't mix well with old age.
- Hes already showing shades of it when he deserts from the Empire with the help of the Bad Batch. It's implied to stem from the brain damage he received in the explosion that seemingly killed him, which worsened with age.
- Continuity Nod: A visual example. Gregor's street clothes were explicitly meant to have a "classic '70s Star Wars" feel to them.
- Cool Helmet: A clone commando helmet that has a bunch of what look like tally marks on it but they're not. They're actually all the headwounds he would have taken had he not been wearing a helmet! note
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Even as a senile old man, Gregor has lost none of his competence.
- Dying Moment of Awesome:
- Taking on a battalion of Separatist droids on his own to cover for the escape of Gascon and the droids. Subverted in that he ultimately survived his sacrifice.
- He ultimately meets his end fighting not the Separatists, but for the Rebellion. He says he is happy to have died fighting for a cause he chose, rather than one he was born to.
- Expository Hairstyle Change: After Gascon convinced him that he's a soldier, he cut his hair shorter and shaved off his beard. He said he did it because he thought that looking like a soldier might help bring back his memories.
- Firing One-Handed: Tends to fire his blaster carbine one-handed when he needs less accurate but more immediate fire, or when firing on the move.
- Foil: To Cut Lawquane. They both lost their squads in a devastating battle. While Cut left the army out of his own will and would like nothing more than to forget the horrors he saw, Gregor went missing and lost his memories. Also, when they were confronted by their earlier lives, Cut declared that he'd only ever fight again for his family. Gregor, on the other hand, Jumped at the Call and did everything in his power to assure the success of Gascon's mission.
- Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: Defied, those tally marks on his helmet indicate all the injuries he would have had had he not been wearing it.
- I Die Free: In his dying words to Rex, he thanks him for the opportunity to fight for a cause he believed in, rather than the one he was created to serve.Gregor: It was an honor to serve with you, Rex. It was an honor to fight with you for something that we chose to believe in.
- Identity Amnesia: When Gascon first met him, he was timid, shy and uncertain. After he got his gear, and some of his memories back, his true personality turned out to be a that of self-confident, selfless soldier.
- Important Haircut: While on Abafar, he grew his hair kind of long and had a shaggy beard. When he's reminded of his true identity, he shaves off the beard and cuts his hair back into his old short style.
- It Has Been an Honor: Said this to Gascon and thanked him for reminding him who he really was. Says it again to Rex as he dies.
- Killed Off for Real: He has survived three potential brushes with death in his military career, but he dies for good at the end of Rebels.
- Last Stand: He held his own against an army of battle droids long enough that Gascon and the droids could escape. Later, it turned out that he survived.
- Laughing Mad: In The Bad Batch and Rebels (especially Rebels) he's prone to random fits of mad cackling.
- Made of Iron: Survived 3 events that killed everyone around him. Once during the Battle of Sarrish, again when his transport crashed on Abafar, and again when covering Colonel Gascon's evacuation from Abafar (if Legends content holds any water, Clone Commando armor is so durable that one wearing it can survive sitting on an active thermal detonator), which The Bad Batch outright confirms. Granted, it's implied he deserted to Abafar when his entire squad was killed on Sarrish and the crash on Abafar caused head trauma-induced amnesia. The prior head trauma and old age eventually made him a bit senile. However, since he's not wearing any armor at all during the liberation of Lothal, all it takes is a single blaster shot to the chest from an armed technician to take him down for good.
- Never Found the Body: In The Clone Wars, he went missing in action after one of the most devastating battles of the war. Happened again after he helped Gascon and the droids. Rebels reveals that he survived that, too.
- Non-Action Guy: Before getting his memories back, he couldn't even grab his weapon from the overweight diner owner that took him in.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: While most of his Last Stand against the Separatist army is shown, the ending isn't and given how many droids were left at the outpost, Gregor's survival was an impressive one indeed.
- Old Soldier: 15 years later, even accelerated aging and senility hasn't stopped him from fighting against the Empire.
- One-Man Army: Is shown holding his ground against a Separatist droid force, including droidekas and super battle droids, single-handedly while R2-D2's infiltration team uses his distraction to move in.
- OOC Is Serious Business: In the Rebels finale, his senile demeanor often slips. And when he dies, there's no trace of it, simply thanking Rex for inviting him so he could die fighting for something he chose rather than something chosen for him.
- Sanity Slippage: It's heavily implied that brain damage he sustained during his Last Stand worsened due to his Rapid Aging, resulting in him becoming the cackling Scatterbrained Senior he is in Rebels
- Scannable Man: All clones have this, apparently, but it's only been shown being used on Gregor. It's invisible unless scanned, and allows R2 to pull up his service record.
- Scratchy-Voiced Senior: In Rebels, he speaks with a raspy, high-pitched voice to showcase both his age and senility.
- Shell-Shocked Veteran: He's obviously traumatized by the Battle of Saresh after being cured of his amnesia.Gregor: I remember I remember all the bodies bodies everywhere
- Signature Laugh: He has a tendency to do a crazed chuckle in Rebels and, to a lesser extent, The Bad Batch.
- Sole Survivor: Heavily implied that his whole squad was killed in the battle where he lost his memory.
- Still Wearing the Old Colors: 15 years after the rise of the Empire, Gregor was found still wearing pieces of his old armor, although just the gloves, forearm guards, and boots. Word of God also states that the emblem on his tank top is from the diner where he washed dishes during his amnesia.
- Taking You with Me: After being fatally wounded by an Imperial technician in the finale of Rebels, Gregor shoves the technician off the platform before he collapses.
- Took a Level in Badass: Before regaining his memories, he was unable to take his blaster back from his master. A few minutes later he takes on a garrison worth of droids, and effortlessly holds them up long enough for Gascon and the droids to escape.
- Trauma-Induced Amnesia: Implied to have been the case due to his being a survivor of a devastating loss.
- Vocal Evolution: His voice is higher-pitched and raspier in Rebels, to compliment his aging and new Cloudcuckoolander traits. The Bad Batch has him speak in a mix of his The Clone Wars and Rebels voices.
Waxer was an experienced member of 212th Battalion's Ghost Company who worked with fellow clone trooper Boil.
- Canon Immigrant: He first appeared in the "Slaves of the Republic" tie-in comic-book series, though it was only a very small role. In canon, he appears for the first time in "Innocents of Ryloth". However, when his debut comic got adapted to television, Waxer was Adapted Out and had his cameo turned over to Boil as a result of his death an episode earlier during the Umbara arc.
- Custom Uniform: His helmet has a kill count stenciled onto it, along with Numa's face painted onto the right side of its forehead. By the time of the Battle of Umbara, Waxer has started having to use his left shoulder pad for his kill count as well, which is up to eighty.
- Mauve Shirt: He was killed in his third appearance.
- Rank Up: By the time of the Battle of Umbara, Waxer had reached the rank of Lieutenant and led his own platoon unit.
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: In "Innocents of Ryloth" (his and Boil's first appearance), Waxer was constantly sidetracked by his worry for Numa, making him the sensitive guy, which annoyed Boil, who was more interested in completing their mission and reporting back in time. However, by the end of the episode, Boil too grew attached to the little girl.
- Single Tear: He sheds one as he dies. Not because he is dying, but because he was tricked into killing his own brothers, and was fatally wounded by one of them.
- Those Two Guys: Most of his appearances have him teamed up with Boil.
- Undignified Death: He doesn't get to go out valiantly protecting the Republic. Instead, he is duped into fighting his own comrades by a traitorous general and is team-killed by the 501st.
Boil was an experienced member of the 212th's Ghost Company who often fought alongside Waxer.
- Custom Uniform: His helmet has an upside-down red triangle on the forehead and a black symbol on the left side. Following his encounter with Numa, Boil has her face painted onto his helmet's right side as well.
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: In "Innocents of Ryloth" (his and Waxer's first appearance), Waxer was constantly side-tracked by his worry for Numa, making him the sensitive guy, which annoyed Boil, who was more interested in completing their mission and reporting back in time. However, by the end of the episode, Boil too grew really attached to the little girl.
- Those Two Guys: With Waxer, with them usually being sent on missions together.
- Took a Level in Kindness: At the beginning of "Innocents of Ryloth", Boil is rather dismissive of the Twi'lek civilians, calling them "tail-heads", and claiming that if the clone army is forced to save them they should at least get out of their way. By the end of the episode, he grew very attached to Numa, the little Twi'lek orphan they found. By "Landing at Point Rain" (their next appearance), he has the girl's face painted on his helmet.
Odd Ball (CC-2237)
A clone trooper pilot that often served under the command of General Obi-Wan Kenobi.
- Ace Pilot: He survives all of the Clone Wars, despite fighting in some of the largest and bloodiest battles of the war, including the battles of Umbara and Coruscant.
- Schrödinger's Canon:
- Odd Ball got his name from ARC Trooper Alpha-17.
- Complete Locations stated his name was Davijaan, which could be some sort of alternative name for him.
Longshot was a minor clone trooper in the 212th. He debuted in the Citadel arc of Season 3. He was a member of a unit tasked to liberate several republic Prisoners from the separatist prison of the same name. Shortly after starting their infiltration, he was electrecuted to death by electric field that was moving towards him and his comrades. The others managed to take cover in time, but Longshot wasn't so lucky.
- Red Shirt: He does manage to stay alive a bit longer than fellow Red Shirt Charger, but not by much.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: The usual for a Redshirt. We only know his name because Cody exclaims it upon witnessing Longshot's death.
Commander Wolffe (CC-3636)
Wolffe was the commander of the 104th Battalion's Wolfpack and second-in-command to Jedi General Plo Koon.
- Animal Motifs: Wolf. Even his squad is called "The Wolfpack".
- Ascended Extra: In The Clone Wars, Wolffe serves mostly as a Satellite Character to Plo Koon, only establishing some of his own personality traits without Plo around a few times. In Rebels (and with Plo long dead), Wolffe is now part of a trio of clones who joined the Rebellion.
- Author Appeal: Dave Filoni is a big fan of wolves.
- Badass Beard: Sports an imperial beard/stubble combo in his older days.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: It's heavily implied that Wolffe carried out Order 66 before his chip was removed and remnants of that mindset still remain in his head. The only thing preventing him from murdering Ezra and Kanan is Rex constantly reminding him that the Jedi didn't betray them despite what the Order 66 programming compels him to believe.
- Broad Strokes: The incident in which Wolffe lost his eye was shown in one of The Clone Wars' tie-in comics, which is part of Legends. However, Ultimate Star Wars confirmed the Battle of Khorm and the loss of his eye to Asajj Ventress as canon.
- Commanding Coolness: He holds the rank of commander in the clone army.
- Electronic Eyes: He got a cybernetic replacement. After his original right eye has been permanently damaged, he chooses to have it replaced with a cybernetic one that's silver in color.
- Eye Scream: He lost an eye to Asajj Ventress between his first and second appearances in The Clone Wars.
- Formerly Fit: Just like Rex, Wolffe has put on a few by the time he meets with the Ghost's crew.
- Hero Killer: While Captain Jag was the one that shot down and killed Plo Koon and Wolffes exact location during Order 66 remains unknown, its implied both in Rebels and through Word of God that he did carry out Order 66.
- I Did What I Had to Do: In Rebels, he intercepts the messages Ahsoka had been sending to Rex and sent a message to the Empire alerting them to the presence of the Ghost crew, under the reasoning that it was to protect his fellow clones.
- Jet Pack: Uses one along with his soldiers during the battle on Felucia and during the rescue at Kadavo.
- Man in a Kilt: He wears kama like a lot of clone officers.
- Noodle Incident: It's heavily implied that he did indeed carry out Order 66 before having his chip removed. Exactly what he did is never stated, but given he thinks the Jedi are coming to take their revenge on him, it most likely wasn't pleasant.
- Number Two: To Plo Koon in Clone Wars.
- Odd Friendship: With Mart and Vizago during the Rebels series finale.
- Old Soldier: Like Captain Rex, it doesn't seem the accelerated aging has stopped him from fighting against the Empire alongside him and Gregor.
- Once a Season: With the exceptions of Seasons 5 and 7, Wolffe received a new character model every season of The Clone Wars. In Season 1, he was in a naval officer uniform. In Season 2, he got a suit of armor. In Season 3, the color palette on the helmet was reversed. In Season 4, he upgraded to Phase II armor with a unique helmet design. In Season 6, he appeared in desert survival gear. In one of the Season 4 DVD commentaries, Dave Filoni joked that Wolffe was something of a fashionista among clones.
- One Steve Limit: During the Rebels finale, when the lothwolves show up, Gregor points out that now they have Wolffe and lothwolves; Wolffe's got his Wolfpack back!
- The Paranoiac: In Rebels, as a result of living through the Clone Wars, Order 66 and the rise of the Empire and being one of the few clones aware of the Government Conspiracy, since he had his chip removed he's become incredibly paranoid, and hides Ahsoka's messages to Rex on the grounds that she's a Jedi and could come back for revenge. In that appearance, his paranoia is also directly responsible for the Empire's arrival on Seelos. Word of God suggests it might even be a side effect of only having the chip removed after Order 66 - even though he had it removed, Wolffe can't quite shake his paranoia about Jedi.
- Schrödinger's Canon: In 2018, Henry Gilroy said that Wolffe probably carried out Order 66 and only removed his chip afterwards. As of yet, this has yet to be explicitly confirmed in any canon material, but it is very possible given Rex only gets his chip taken out while actively trying to carry out the order himself in the penultimate episode of The Clone Wars.
- Screaming Warrior: When he faces off against the AT-ATs in Rebels.
- Shell-Shocked Veteran: In Rebels, it is implied that the aftermath of war and Order 66 has left Wolffe in a state of constant paranoia, as his first reaction to Kanan's lightsaber is shooting at Kanan, saying that the Jedi are here for revenge, only for Rex to remind him that they weren't the ones who betrayed the clones.
- Still Wearing the Old Colors: When the crew of the Ghost found him 15 years after the rise of the Empire, he was still wearing pieces of his old Phase II armor, specifically the forearm guards, gloves, right shoulder pad, chest piece, boots, and helmet. The upper arms, left shoulder pad, lower torso, thigh guard, kama and backpack were missing.
- To Be Lawful or Good: Since the Empire keeps tabs on them, he had to report the Rebels' presence to them, as helping them would be treason. Wolffe eventually chooses good, and defects with his fellow clones.
- Younger Than They Look: Because of his accelerated aging, he's physically an old man by the time of Rebels, despite chronologically being in his twenties.
Sinker was a clone trooper in the 104th Battalion's Wolfpack.
- Cool Helmet: Like all members of the Wolfpack following their visual upgrade, Sinker has his own unique helmet painted in the unit's colors and with a wolf head on the front. He has his further painted grey on the cheeks and chin.
- The Cynic: He tends to have a rather negative outlook on life.
- Deadpan Snarker: He snarks a lot, and a lot of it is directed at Boost.Sinker: Don't look at me. It's Boost, sir. He only takes a bath when he's on leave.
- Expendable Clone: He feels that since he and his brothers are just clones, the people calling the shots will consider them this. Plo Koon tells him that he does not feel that way about them.
- Meaningful Name: One of the most cynical clone troopers seen, and his name is Sinker.
- Tempting Fate: While stranded in an escape pod without power, he notes that things cannot get much worse. Plo Koon calls him on it, and sure enough, they get targeted by a droid patrol sent to eliminate survivors soon after.Plo Koon: When you ask for trouble, you should not be surprised when it finds you.
Sinker: I think trouble already found us, sir.
- Those Two Guys: With Boost.
- With Due Respect: He directs this towards Plo Koon when he attempts to reassure him, Boost, and Wolffe that someone will come looking for them after their ship is destroyed by the Malevolence, pointing out that it does not make much strategic sense to do so.
- Younger Than He Looks: He has grey hair, although he isn't older than any of the other clone troopers.
Boost was a clone trooper in the 104th Battalion's Wolfpack.
- Cool Helmet: Like all members of the Wolfpack following their visual upgrade, Boost has his own unique helmet painted in the unit's colors with a wolf head on the front. He has his further painted with ragged grey markings under the visor.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has two long scars on the right side of his face, with one of them going through his lip.
- The Pig-Pen: Implied as Sinker claims he doesnt bathe unless hes on leave.
- Shoot Out the Lock: When helping recovery efforts on Aleena following an earthquake, Boost opts to shoot debris blocking the entrance to the city's computer grid out of the way and then kicks the control panel to open the damaged door.
- Those Two Guys: With Sinker.
Warthog was a veteran clone pilot under the command of Jedi Master Plo Koon.
- Ace Pilot: He is nearly good enough to keep up with Plo Koon.
- Cool Helmet: Like most of Plo Koon's clone troopers, he has his helmet painted with an intricate design.
- Deadpan Snarker: His reaction to the Aleena is priceless.Dragonfly-mounted Aleena: [jubilantly] Kazabanee!! [dragonfly dives]
Warthog: Great. It's gonna be another one of those planets.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: The Clone Wars depicts him as Plo's usual wingman, but in Revenge of the Sith, he is not present when Plo is leading a fighter assault on Cato Neimoidia after Order 66 is executed, with the Jedi Master instead being accompanied and shot down by Captain Jag. He may have been killed in battle, but no explanation has yet been given.
- Wingman: To Plo Koon, often accompanying him on critical missions to clear a path through an enemy fleet or escort gunships.
Commander Fox (CC-1010)
Fox was the commander of the Coruscant Guard and one of the most highly decorated clone troopers in the Republic Clone Army.
- Ambiguously Evil: Given that Fox was in the same room as Palpatine when he revealed the truth about Order 66 to Fives it is unclear if Fox simply didn't hear what Palpatine said or if he was in on it.
- Asshole Victim: While Fox wasn't necessarily evil and more of an Unwitting Pawn, he was never the nicest, either, as Ahsoka and Fives can attest, and he was indirectly and unwittingly responsible for allowing Order 66 to take place in the long run. So, it's hard to feel sorry for him when Vader killed him.
- Back for the Dead: He returns in Dark Lord of the Sith just in time to die unceremoniously.
- The Captain: Of the Coruscant Guard and later the clone shock troopers.
- Commanding Coolness: He holds the rank of commander.
- The Friend Nobody Likes: Despite his accomplishments, nobody in the Grand Army, nor any of the Jedi like Fox all that much.
- The Faceless: He is one of a few clone commanders whose face we never see, making him look more emotionless and menacing than other high-ranking clones whose faces we did see. Fittingly, he becomes an antagonist as an Inspector Javert on more than one occasion, due to his Phase II Clone Armor.
- Guns Akimbo: Much like Captain Rex.
- Inspector Javert: When hunting down Ahsoka and Fives.
- Killed Mid-Sentence: Darth Vader snaps his neck with the Force while he's in the midst of an apology.
- My God, What Have I Done?: He doesn't visibly have this reaction (since he's always been seen wearing a helmet), but the camera briefly focusing on him during Fives' last words suggests he really feels bad about shooting him (and he only intended to arrest him, most likely unaware that Palpatine planned to have him silenced), even though he wasn't seen in the circle of un-helmeted clone shock troopers gathering around Fives' body.
- Neck Snap: He dies as a result of being Force-choked courtesy of Vader.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Due to being stationed on Coruscant and being the Senate's security force (and thus being bound to directly serve some rather corrupt individuals within the Senate and military), he has a habit of inadvertently perpetuating the Clone Wars and allowing the rise of the Empire.
- He accidentally allows a group of Separatist demolition droids to enter one of Coruscant's power plants as a result of believing them to be simple cleaning droids and then directs them to the power generators when he notices them going the wrong way, allowing them to sabotage the peace plan Mina and Padme made to stop more of Fox's "brothers" from being put on the frontlines.Fox: Whoa whoa whoa, wait a minute! Power generators are that way. Heh, stupid droids.
- He arrested Ahsoka and did not allow Anakin to see her, thus leading to her becoming disillusioned with the Jedi Order and the Republic, leaving it, and Anakin being separated from one of his Morality Pets.
- He attempted to arrest Fives and then killed him in self-defense, thus keeping the truth about Order 66 from getting out.
- His men fired on Darth Vader while attempting to pursue Jocasta Nu, allowing her to get away. This was the last straw for his career, as Vader saw he paid for his mistake with his life.
- He accidentally allows a group of Separatist demolition droids to enter one of Coruscant's power plants as a result of believing them to be simple cleaning droids and then directs them to the power generators when he notices them going the wrong way, allowing them to sabotage the peace plan Mina and Padme made to stop more of Fox's "brothers" from being put on the frontlines.
- One Steve Limit: Averted. There's a clone trooper CT-0000/1010 whose nickname is also Fox in the 501st Legion.
- Rejected Apology: He tries to make amends with Vader for neglecting to inform his troops of the dark lord's allegiance. Unfortunately for him, Vader doesn't do apologies.
- Unwitting Pawn: He has accidentally helped out Palpatine's Evil Plan in more ways than any other clone trooper in the Republic army, whether by inadvertently driving one of Anakin's only friends away from him or accidentally silencing a witness to the true nature of the Clone Wars.
- You Have Failed Me: He neglects to describe Darth Vader's appearance to his men, leading them to mistake Vader for a Jedi and open fire. He tries to apologize, but Vader doesn't want to hear it.
Commander Stone (CC-5869)
Stone was a commander in the Coruscant Guard who was assigned to protect Senator Kharrus and Representative Jar Jar Binks on a diplomatic mission to Florrum.
- Commanding Coolness: He is a capable soldier and quickly figures out how to utilize Jar Jar's... talent for chaos for the benefit of the mission.
- Custom Uniform: He has his armor painted in the traditional colors of the Coruscant Guard, with the unit's logo on his pauldrons.
- Excellent Judge of Character: In spite of everyone having doubts about Jar-Jar leading their mission, Stone gives him the benefit of the doubt, even outright saying that he's smarter than he looks.
- Guns Akimbo: Uses two blaster pistols in combat. He's actually one of the only clone officers to do so who doesn't also wear kama.
Thorn was a commander of the Coruscant Guard assigned for security on Scipio during Rush Clovis' rise to power in the Banking Clan.
- Badass Normal: He actually managed to put up a good fight and last long enough before the initial Separatist invasion force on Scipio overwhelmed him.
- Battle Cry: "FOR THE REPUBLIC!"
- Cool Helmet: It deserves special mention since it's got a design on its sides resembling the wings on Thor's helmet.
- Commanding Coolness: He holds the rank of commander.
- Dying Moment of Awesome: He spends his final moments mowing down dozens of battle droids with his Z-6 Rotary Cannon, and even after being shot in the shoulder, continues fighting to the best of his ability. It takes several point-blank blaster shots to finally put him down.
- Gatling Good: He is shown wielding a Z-6 Rotary Cannon.
- I Call It "Vera": His cannon is nicknamed "Hammer".
- Last Stand: He and his men put up one against the Separatist invasion force on Scipio, actually succeeding in destroying the majority of the Separatist droid garrison before ultimately being overwhelmed by their superior numbers.
- Man in a Kilt: As a result of being a clone trooper with a high ranking, he wears kama.
- Meaningful Name: See Shout-Out.
- Red Shirt: He dies at the beginning of the Separatist invasion of Scipio. Granted, he lasts notably longer than the other Red Shirts accompanying him. Being part of the Coruscant Guard (who normally wear red) may be a Lampshade Hanging.
- Shout-Out: Word of God has admitted that Thorn is their way of congratulating Joss Whedon for his success on The Avengers. When one removes the "n" at the end of his name, you have Thor, and his Z-6 Rotary Cannon is nicknamed "Hammer". And if you look closely at his helmet, the sides have a design that look an awful lot like the wings on Thor's helmet.
Commander Thire (CC-4477)
Thire was a commander of the Coruscant Guard. He accompanied Master Yoda on a diplomatic mission to Rugosa near the start of the Clone Wars.
- The Cameo: He is the clone trooper who leads the search for Yoda in the Senate chambers after the latter's duel with the Emperor in Revenge of the Sith.
- FaceHeel Turn: Though we don't see much of him after Order 66, he nevertheless has gone from accompanying Yoda during the Clone Wars to helping Darth Sidious in pursuing Yoda.
- Handicapped Badass: He becomes this in "Ambush" as a result of getting injured while fighting Separatist droids.
- Rank Up: He's a lieutenant in "Ambush", early in the Clone Wars, but rose to the rank of commander by the end (as presented in Revenge of the Sith).
Jek was a clone trooper in the Coruscant Guard who accompanied Master Yoda on a diplomatic mission to Rugosa near the start of the Clone Wars.
- Badass Bandolier: He wears a bandolier over his armor.
- The Big Guy: During the mission to Rugosa, Yoda mentions his love of weapons and advises him to think of other things as well.Yoda: Jek. Concerned about weapons you are. Weapons do not win battles. Your mind, powerful it is! Mmm? Out think the droids you can.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Yoda has a vision at the end of the short story Sharing the Same Face wherein he sees Jek's emotions changing from disbelief and regret to a sudden urge to obey, due to Order 66. When the Order itself is executed, Yoda, having realized his Force vision was telling the truth, beheads him and Gree.
- Gatling Good: He uses a giant laser cannon to pulverize about a dozen battle droids in a couple seconds.
- Off with His Head!!: Gets beheaded alongside Gree by Yoda.
- Rank Up: Becomes a Clone Captain in the 41st Elite Corps's Ranger Corps by the time of the Battle of Kashyyyk, having followed Yoda's advice of size is not everything.
Rys was a clone trooper who accompanied Yoda on his diplomatic mission to Rugosa.
- Bodyguarding a Badass: He's technically Yoda's security. Yoda is perfectly capable of wiping out an entire army on his own, and Rys doesn't get much action as a result.
- Dies Wide Open: Yoda has a vision at the end of the short story Sharing The Same Face from the anthology book Clone Wars: Stories of Light and Dark, which retells the story from the Ambush episode of the show, wherein he sees Rys dead with his eyes open.
- The Pessimist: He tends to give up a bit too easily, mostly because at that point in time, he and his fellow clones are outnumbered, low on supplies, and stranded with no hope of rescue. Yoda gives him a quick pep talk to break him out of this.
- Red Is Heroic: He's a clone shock trooper and wears primarily red armor.
Hevy was once a member of the dysfunctional Domino Squad during their cadet days and longing for action on the front lines. He and the rest of the Dominoes were assigned to a listening post on the Rishi moon not far from Kamino. He gets his wish when the Separatists send an attack force to the moon to take over the listening post.
- Appropriated Appellation: He was likely named Hevy due his heavy personality, which reflected in his preference for heavy weapons like the Z-6 Rotary Cannon.
- Be Careful What You Wish For: At the beginning of "Rookies", he was the most eager of the squad to be on the front lines. His wish was granted when the frontlines came to the outpost they were defending and he died in the ensuing fight.
- BFG: He favors a giant minigun as his primary weapon, leading to his nickname Hevy. He gets told off for this by Commander Cody when immediately going for the bigger gun to fend off invading droids at the Rishi moon outpost.Hevy: I think we can even the odds a bit, Commander, especially since [the droids] don't know we're here. *picks up a minigun* This one here is mine. Ha!
Cody: Big gun doesn't make a big man.
- Blood Knight: Of all the members of Domino Squad, he's the most eager to see real action and is also the most aggressive member of the group.
- Conscience Makes You Go Back: In "Clone Cadets", he storms off because he feels that Domino Squad is never going to pass training. 99 talks him into going back just in time for their second chance at the Citadel test.
- Deadpan Snarker:
- In particular:Hevy: Hmm. What do you know? All clear. Just like the last fifteen times I looked at it.
- And also...Hevy: Ooh! Meteor shower.
- In particular:
- Gatling Good: The Z-6 Rotary Cannon is his Weapon of Choice.
- Heroic Sacrifice: He dies destroying the Rishi outpost, which alerts the Republic Fleet that the area is under attack by the Separatists.
- Last Stand: Hevy has one against the Separatist droids that assault the Rishi outpost before dying.
- Leeroy Jenkins: He is like this at the beginning of "Clone Cadets", often breaking formation with his squad during the tests. It is breaking away from this behavior that allows him and Domino Squad to finally pass the graduation exam.
- New Meat: He starts out as one along with the rest of Domino Squad. Unfortunately, he never lives to see the remainder of Domino Squad take several levels in badass. Good thing he took his own before the end.
- No Body Left Behind: Considering that he was completely enveloped in a fiery explosion, this seems to be the case.
- Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: Delivers one when droid reinforcements arrive at the door of the Rishi base:Droid #1: Reinforcements reporting.
Droid #2: Open up.
*The doors open, only for Hevy to greet them with his minigun*
Hevy: Didn't say please. *fires at the droids at the door, mowing several down*
- Weapon of Choice: The Z-6 Rotary Cannon seems to be this for him.
Droidbait was the second member of the Domino Squad.
- Embarrassing Nickname: The others started to call him Droidbait because he was always the first to fall during Domino Squad's training sessions.
- Leeroy Jenkins: Like Hevy, he had the tendency to run off on his own during training, but unlike Hevy, he either lacked the skill to back it up or he simply had really bad luck.
- The Load: As noted above, he was usually the first to get "killed" during battle simulations, which greatly annoyed the others.
- Red Shirt: He is the first of Domino Squad to die as he (along with another clone trooper) gets killed by the commando droids that attacked the Rishi Moon outpost before we got to know him. He was retroactively upgraded to Mauve Shirt when the prequel episode "Clone Cadets" provided him a little more screen time and characterization.
- Took a Level in Badass: During the Domino Squad's repeat test, he uses his "skill" at being the first targeted by the droids to draw the fire of the guns on the Citadel during the Citadel Challenge, allowing the others to take them all out and use them to their advantage.
Echo (CT-1409)Echo was the third member of the Domino Squad.
Cutup was the fourth member of the Domino Squad.
- Appropriated Appellation: He chose the name "Cutup" after Bric called him that in an attempt to get to him to snap back.
- Cruel and Unusual Death: He gets devoured by a giant eel.
- Deadpan Snarker: He was cracking rather dry jokes constantly and didn't take his superiors seriously. This is how he earned his name.
- Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: His attitude towards Bric.
- Dropped a Bridge on Him: He gets eaten by a Rishi eel shortly after they just evaded the Separatist droids.
- Meaningful Name: He gets it from Sergeant Brick, who calls him one for treating everything like a joke.
- Sacrificial Lamb: He is the second one after Droidbait to be abruptly killed off in an unspectacular fashion.
- Unexplained Accent: His accent veers a lot closer to Irish than any other clone, for no apparent reason.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: He dies in the first episode he appears in, but he retroactively does get some more screentime in a later episode that serves as a prequel to the first episode that he appears in.
Fives (CT-27-5555)Fives was the fifth member of the Domino Squad.
Colt was an ARC trooper stationed on Kamino who served as the commander of Rancor Battalion.
- Commanding Coolness: Colt holds the rank of commander and helps oversee training and selection of ARC troopers on Kamino, where he emphasizes the value of teamwork and loyalty among the clone troopers.

- Guns Akimbo: He wields two blaster pistols in battle.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: While fighting to repel the Separatist invasion of Kamino, Colt encountered Asajj Ventress, who used the Force to pull him onto one of her lightsabers, killing him.
- No One Gets Left Behind: He's a firm believer of this, and it's his first fundamental rule for clones that they fight together. Seeing Domino Squad leave a wounded teammate behind is what instantly causes them to fail the test.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: He gives one to Domino Squad after watching their disastrous training run, berating them for not working as a team and, worst of all, leaving a man behind.
- Undying Loyalty: He feels this towards his brothers and believes that it is necessary, pointing out that though they may quarrel, they are all united in their struggle and must work and fight together to survive.
Havoc was an ARC trooper and Clone Commander who served in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars as a member of Rancor Battalion.
- Boom, Headshot!: He is finished off by a blaster bolt to the head.

- Elites Are More Glamorous: He is a member of Rancor Battalion, an elite unit of ARC troopers.
- Guns Akimbo: He wields two blaster pistols in battle.
Blitz was an ARC trooper and Clone Commander who was stationed on Kamino.
- Elites Are More Glamorous: He is a member of Rancor Battalion, an elite unit of ARC troopers.
- Flat Character: Unlike Colt and Havoc, he gets very little characterization and screen time. His only bits of screen time were Rancor Battalion's introduction and him ordering one of the missile attacks on the Trident drill ships in the Battle of Kamino.
- Guns Akimbo: He wields two blaster pistols in battle.
- Sole Survivor: He was one of the only two ARC troopers in Rancor Battalion to survive the Battle of Kamino.

- Badass in Distress: He gets captured alongside Admiral Kilian and another clone officer after the Endurance crashes.
- Boom, Headshot!: Aurra shoots him in the head as a message to Mace and then dumps his body into space.
- Custom Uniform: He has "some guys have all the luck" stenciled on the back of his helmet in Aurebesh.
- Going Down with the Ship: When the Endurance is sabotaged and begins crashing on Vanqor, Ponds remains aboard the ship with Admiral Kilian. He manages to survive the crash, though.
- Man in a Kilt: He wears kama, although in his picture it's missing due to Off-Model hijinks.
- Mauve Shirt: He gets some character development before being killed by Aurra Sing.
- Nice Guy: During the campaign on Ryloth, Ponds ordered his men to give all their spare rations to the Twi'lek villagers they came across, and later becomes infuriated when the Separatists bombs the villages.
- Number Two: Ponds serves as Mace Windu's right hand man, and Mace leaves him in charge of things when Mace is going to be unavailable.
Commander Neyo (CC-8826)

- All There in the Manual: What he looks like is only revealed in the episode guide for "Secret Weapons".
- Badass Biker: His one scene in Revenge of the Sith has him on a speeder bike.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: He kills Stass Allie while under the influence of the control chip implanted in his brain.
- The Cameo: He appears briefly in two episodes of The Clone Wars during the D-Squad arc (since he's WAC-47's master).
- Cool Helmet: He has customized his helmet to reflect his unit affiliations but not actually personalized it with all the markings on it also existing on the helmets of others in the unit. Regardless it has a sleek look due to coverings giving it a continuous appearance rather than the air intake covers jutting out as they do on standard helmets and the round emblem of the 91st painted on the forehead above his right eye.
- Facial Markings: His numerical designation CC-8826, going downwards from under his left eye.
- Number Two: To Stass Allie.
- Schrödinger's Canon:
- In Legends, he was noted to have a rather cold and detached personality.
- Legends stated that he held the rank of Clone Marshal Commander.
- Symbol Motif Clothing: Neyo has the round red emblem of the 91st Recon Corps painted on his helmet, right rerebrace, right cuisse and in the middle of his chest.
41st Elite Corps
Commander Gree (CC-1004)
Gree was the commander of the 41st Elite Corps. He worked with Jedi Master Luminara Unduli during the Clone Wars, serving on some of the most heated battlefronts of the war, including the planet of Kashyyyk.
- Assassin Outclassin': In Revenge of the Sith, Gree attempted to execute Yoda as soon as Order 66 gets executed, but Yoda quickly killed him and his fellow clone trooper, Jek before they could even pull the trigger.
- Badass Bandolier: He wears a bandolier and is a competent commander and warrior.
- Blasting It Out of Their Hands: When Argyus uses Nute Gunray as a human shield in "Cloak of Darkness", knowing Gree would never risk losing the Republic such a valuable prisoner, Gree simply circumvents the situation by shooting Argyus' blaster out of his hands.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: He is brainwashed and forced to turn against Yoda as soon as Order 66 is activated.
- Cool Helmet: Like many clone troopers, he has painted his helmet to customize it. A helmet of the same design, either his own or a replica, appears in Grand Admiral Thrawn's office in Rebels.
- Off with His Head!: He is decapitated alongside another clone trooper when he attempts to execute Order 66 on Yoda.
- Schrödinger's Canon:
- In Legends, he was nicknamed after the Gree species. The planet Gree has been reestablished as canon in The Force Awakens Beginner Game, but the same hasn't happened yet for the Gree species or Commander Gree's In-Universe name origins.
- According to the Decoded version of "Cloak of Darkness", he fought at the Battle of Tibrin (mentioned in "Rookies"). His "double stripe" haircut is worn in honor of his fallen comrades in that battle.
- Underestimating Badassery: Gree thought that he and a random clone scout trooper (Later revealed to be Jek via Star Wars: Battles that Changed the Galaxy) could kill the wisest Jedi in the galaxy, Yoda. It's not their fault since the execution of Order 66 resulted in a control chip forcing them into doing it without having any second thoughts.
- Undying Loyalty: To the Republic, but not the Jedi, as noted in his databank entry.
Buzz was a clone trooper in the 41st Elite Corps. He worked with Jedi Master Luminara Unduli during the Clone Wars, until his death during the Second Battle of Geonosis.
- Cool Helmet: Buzz has painted his helmet with a symmetrical green pattern, and an extra line on the crown on the right side.
- Gatling Good: Buzz prefers a rotary cannon, and puts one to good use when ambushed the first time on Geonosis.
- Scream Discretion Shot: When he's attacked and killed by the undead Geonosians his scream is heard, but he's not shown. When his body is found later only his armored leg is shown, to help maintain the question of what happened to him.
Clone Youth Brigade
Crasher was the sergeant in charge of overseeing the Clone Youth Brigade.
- Badass Teacher: While not currently in active duty, he's still a clone trooper and was presumably trained for combat like the rest.
- Brutal Honesty: He appears to have moments like this, most notably when he tells the cadets, who are chronologically just 5 years old, that the war means that there is ultimately no guarantee for their safety or survival.
- A Father to His Men: Despite his strict nature, he does still clearly care for the little brothers under his care. His reaction to a pod full of them being rescued being just one indication of this.
- Prematurely Bald: Despite biologically being in his early 20's at most, he appears to be losing his hair. What's left of it is greying.
- Stern Teacher: While not sadistic about it, he still clearly has high expectations for his cadets. That said, he is still willing to praise them when those expectations are met.
Jax was the unofficial leader of the Clone Youth Brigade.
- Et Tu, Brute?: He does this to Boba.
- Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: Somewhat justified in that he's still in training, but of those who tried shooting the disc he still had the worst shot.
- Horrible Judge of Character: He fully trusted "Lucky", a disguised Boba. Even when Boba's treachery was revealed, he still maintained the hope that he would eventually see that what he was doing was wrong.
- Nice Guy: The only member of the Brigade to genuinely try to befriend "Lucky", even standing up to the others when they harassed him.
- The Leader: He seems to be in charge of the rest of the cadets, with them largely listening to what he has to say.
- Tyke-Bomb: He was bred to be a soldier and his upbringing reflects such.
- Wide-Eyed Idealist: Always hopes for the best and sees the best in others. In his own words, he feels ready for anything.
Hotshot was the blonde member of the Clone Youth Brigade with a reputation for trouble-making.
- The Bully: Not as extreme as some examples, but like Whiplash their first reaction to meeting a new cadet was to harass him.
- Dark-Skinned Blonde: Although, it's ambiguous whether the hair is down to a genetic mutation or dye.
- The Lancer: He appears to serve this role. He has some sway over the rest of the cadets, albeit less than Jax, and if what Jax says is any indication then he usually ends up being the ringleader whenever some of the team decide to start some trouble.
- Those Two Guys: Out of all his brothers, he seems to hang around Whiplash the most.
- Tyke-Bomb: Just like his brothers, he was bred for war and his upbringing reflects such.
Whiplash was one of the more hot-tempered members of the brigade.
- The Bully: The first cadet to start harassing "Lucky".
- Hot-Blooded: Does not seem to handle stress well, yelling at Jax when their pod is jettisoned; something that Jax had no control over. However, when the crisis is over, he's willing to at least apologize and admit that he was wrong.
- Those Two Guys: He frequently hangs around Hotshot.
- Tyke-Bomb: Like all clone cadets.
- The Un-Smile: His attempt to smile at an older clone trooper turns out looking... awkward, to say the least.
Depa Billaba's Battalion
Commander Grey (CC-10/994)
Grey was the commander of Jedi Master Depa Billaba's unit, and as one of only four clone survivors of her first unit (which was decimated by Dooku) to join her new battalion he became the clone commander of her new battalion. He was glad she recovered from her coma and happy following her into battle again. After Order 66 is issued, he commands the Imperial garrison on Kaller and leads the search for Caleb Dume.
- All There in the Manual: The Topps trading card collection released for The Bad Batch reveals that hes a member of the 41st Elite listed above. Its left ambiguous if this applies to his men or not, because of the heavy retconning of his participation of Order 66, and the rest of his men more or less being Adapted Out. It should be noted that his armor was changed to green in the show instead of the red he has in the comics, giving his armor a similar appearance to clone trooper Buzz.
- Badass Bandolier: Wears a bandolier on the right side of his armor, which includes a slot for a short sword on his back.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Goes from happily chatting with Depa and Caleb Dume to trying to murder them within minutes of Order 66 being issued. He eventually manages to snap out of the programming several months later after speaking with Caleb, who points out everything wrong with the "Jedi are traitors" scenario.
- Commanding Coolness: Before Order 66, he is a cheerful and highly loyal badass commander to Depa.
- Foil: Following Order 66, the contrast between Grey's just following orders response and Styles' more rabid sadistic hatred of the Jedi comes to a head when Grey manages to subvert his programming and tries to save Caleb, while Styles refuses to acknowledge he was ever friendly with or loyal to a Jedi and wants Caleb to suffer and die.
- The Greatest Story Never Told: Caleb's experience during Order 66 justifiably caused him to grow distrustful towards all surviving clone troopers all the way up to Rebels, even to those who did not carry out the order such as Rex. Little does he know he owes his life to Commander Grey, who came to realize what he had done under Order 66 and deliberately sabotaged his own ship's shields in order for Caleb's rescuers to get him to safety. Those who witness his redemption perish alongside with him, as the loss of the shields allow Kasmir and Kleeve to blow the ship up with relative ease.
- Heel Realization: After speaking with Caleb, Grey realizes how seriously wrong all the clones obeying Order 66 without a second thought was and that something had messed with their brains.
- Heroic Suicide: He sabotages his ship's shields, allowing Kasmir and Kleeve to destroy them and escape with Caleb.
- Heroic Willpower: While Caleb's "The Reason You Suck" Speech was definitely a factor, he's the first clone that we know of to overcome his programming.
- Identical Twin ID Tag: While most clones try doing something with their appearance to make them stand out from their brothers, Grey doesn't even need to try due to the scar across his face and the fact that he's maintained a bit more baby fat than other clone veterans, making his face smoother and younger-looking compared to most of his brothers' angular faces.
- Just Following Orders: Unlike other clones who manage to twist their own memories in order to obey Order 66, Grey never forgets that he was once loyal to Billaba, and when first given the order says "Good soldiers follow orders" with a Thousand-Yard Stare before giving in to his programming. When Caleb pokes holes in the source of those orders and his reason for supposedly following them he manages to subvert his programming entirely, but not before killing Billaba and hunting Caleb for months.
- Madness Mantra: After Order 66 is given, he states "Good soldiers follow orders" before ordering his men to begin firing on Depa and Caleb.
- My God, What Have I Done?: He has this reaction when Caleb points out that he and his troops had murdered Depa without a second thought despite their loyalty and devotion to her previously. After realizing his brothers won't stop to kill her apprentice, he decides to make amends by sabotaging his ship and sacrificing himself in order for Caleb to escape.
- Redemption Equals Death: When he realizes Styles has become so deluded that he hates the Jedi and revels in the thought of painfully killing Caleb and so won't listen to Grey about how messed up Order 66 was, he sabotages their ship in order to prevent the others from killing Caleb, allowing it to be shot down by those helping the kid.
- Retcon: In the comic, Depa, Caleb, and the clones are shown sitting around a campfire when Order 66 comes in. The Bad Batch changes this to daytime, with the clones fighting a losing battle against battle droids until Caleb shows up with the titular squad. Greys armor also has green accents in the show instead of red, but otherwise appears mostly unchanged.
- Rugged Scar: Has a large scar going diagonally across his face, stretching from his hairline on the right side of his face down across his nose and ending on his left cheek.
The second-in-command of General Depa Billaba's battalion, who leads Rostu Squad in the aftermath of Order 66.
- Adapted Out: From the Bad Batch version of the story. Grey is the only clone trooper in Depa Billabas Battalion that has customized armor and is referred to as Captain Grey, possibly implying that version is meant to be a Composite Character.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Goes from happily chatting with Billaba and Caleb Dume to trying to murder them within minutes of Order 66 being issued. Unlike Grey, he is unable to overcome the programming a few months later.
- Character Death: He is killed alongside Grey when the latter destroys their cruiser's shields and allows Kasmir and Kleeve to destroy them.
- Deadpan Snarker: Towards Caleb.Styles: So you were the Temple's troublemaker, huh?
Caleb: Something like that, I guess... not like I was trying to be a pain or anything!
Styles: Just came by it naturally, huh?
- Foil: Following Order 66, the contrast between Grey's just following orders response and Styles' more rabid sadistic hatred of the Jedi comes to a head when Grey manages to subvert his programming and tries to save Caleb, while Styles refuses to acknowledge he was ever friendly with or loyal to a Jedi and wants Caleb to suffer and die.
- Irony: After Depa states that she thinks it was a mistake for the Jedi to become military commanders, Styles tells her that she would not want to see the battalion without her leadership. A few minutes later, she sees exactly that as the unit functions very effectively while trying to kill her and Caleb.
- Number Two: As the second highest ranking clone in Depa's unit, and one of only four survivors from her first unit, Styles acts as Grey's number two and their contrasting personalities allow them to help see things the other might miss.
- Would Hurt a Child: After Order 66 is issued, Styles leads the clone troopers hunting down Caleb.
One of the four clone survivors of General Depa Billaba's first unit, who joined the new unit placed under her after her recovery.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Goes from happily chatting with Billaba and Caleb Dume to trying to murder them within minutes of Order 66 being issued.
- Character Death: He is killed by Caleb deflecting one of his own blaster bolts at him when he turns on the boy due to Order 66.
- Irony: The guy who spent the most time looking out for the younger squad members and Caleb aims at Caleb rather than Master Billaba once under the sway of Order 66.
- Team Dad: Big-Mouth has a well-earned reputation for looking out for the younger and less experienced members of his unit.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Big-Mouth really likes meiloorun, and his squadmates are often surprised at how good he is at finding it on planets where it doesn't grow.
- Would Hurt a Child: After Order 66 is issued Big-Mouth tries to murder Caleb, which is quite the turnaround from his natural inclinations as the member of Billaba's squad most interested in protecting kids.
One of the four survivors of the Battle of Haruun Kal from Billaba's decimated first battalion to join her new one. He did not blame Billaba for the outcome of the battle, and was relaxed and easygoing around her.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Under Order 66 he quickly turns on Billaba and Caleb despite making it clear he was completely loyal to her and cared for and trusted both of them prior to the order coming through.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: He's killed when Caleb deflects his own blaster bolt back at him when he tries to kill Caleb and Billaba following Order 66.
- Rebel Relaxation: Soot likes to lean on things when he doesn't need to be at attention, but if the situation is not so relaxed he can flop down with his arms behind his head he goes for leaning with his arms crossed instead.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: He pretty much just gets his name, the fact that he survived Haruun Kal and is loyal to Billaba, and that he likes to slouch around when off duty as all of his characterization before he died while trying to enact Order 66.
Trooper Stance (CT-1157)
One of the fresh recruits, who joined General Depa Billaba's reformed battalion straight from his training on Kamino and befriended Caleb Dume.
- Brief Accent Imitation: It's not so much an accent as it is a gruff way of speaking, but he imitates Big-Mouth while commiserating with Caleb about being kept on a short leash and treated like a kid due to lack of experience.
- Character Death: He died while backing up Caleb during Coburn Sear's ambush on their base camp.
- Custom Uniform: He is the only one of the fresh recruits to Billaba's battalion to have done anything to customize his armor, in this case painting the crest of his helmet lime green. He is also the only one to have any personal impact on the story and get any characterization.
- Due to the Dead: Despite her injuries, Depa Billaba attends Stance's funeral alongside Caleb and her battalion before allowing herself to be placed in a bacta tank.
- In the Back: Stance was shot in the back by Coburn Sear, which is how Sear announced his presence while ambushing the battalion's near deserted base camp.
- Naïve Newcomer: Part of the reason Big-Mouth treats Stance like he's so young is his constant questioning, which is also why he so easily befriends Caleb, a Jedi whose been known for questioning everything since he was a youngling.
- New Meat: Due to the fate of Billaba's previous unit, most of her battalion after taking on Caleb Dume as her padawan are new to the field, however, CT-1157 gets the most characterization and frequently lampshades the fact that the older officers are treating him as an untested newbie. He is among those Grey thinks shouldn't be out in the field yet, and he didn't even have a name when he joined the unit.
- Shoo Out the Clowns: Stance has a great sense of humor and jokes frequently both in and out of battle. He dies prior to Order 66, and his death causes Caleb's first (brief) dalliance with the Dark Side, and makes him question why he feels so at home on the battlefield despite the deaths that inevitably accompany it.
- Weapon Tombstone: His rifle with his helmet balanced on it is his headstone.
Other Clone Troopers
Clone Marshal Commander Bly (CC-5052)
Bly was the commander of the 327th Star Corps and second-in-command to Jedi General Aayla Secura.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Along with several other clone troopers, Bly gets brainwashed by the control chip in his brain and turns on Aayla and shoots her in the back on Felucia after the execution of Order 66.
- Captain Smooth and Sergeant Rough: He kind of has this dynamic with Rex in "Jedi Crash" and "Defenders of Peace".
- Commanding Coolness: He holds the rank of Clone Marshal Commander and has a stoic personality.
- Double Tap: He and his clone troopers shoot Aayla repeatedly after she goes down following the execution of Order 66.
- Facial Markings: He has yellow shapes tattooed on his cheeks.
- Man in a Kilt: He wears kama.
- Number Two: He was this to Aayla Secura during the Clone Wars prior to the execution of Order 66.
- Satellite Character: He has next to no characterization besides being Aayla's Number Two.
- Schrödinger's Canon: In Legends, he continued to serve the Empire. This had yet to be re-canonized and he's left unmentioned in the canon.
- The Stoic: He barely shows any emotions compared to other clone troopers.
Clone Marshal Commander Bacara (CC-1138)
Bacara was the commander of the 21st Nova Corps, nicknamed the Galactic Marines. He fought under the command of Ki-Adi-Mundi during the Battle of Mygeeto.
- The Aloner: Following his training with the Journeyman Protectors, Bacara was seen as a loner.
- Assassin Outclassin': Not him personally, but some members of his Galactic Marines are killed by blaster bolts deflected by Mundi before they eventually managed to kill him.
- Badass Bandolier: He wears a bandolier over his armor.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: He turns against Ki-Adi-Mundi as soon as Order 66 is activated.
- The Cameo: Appears in the newsreel opening of Old Friends Not Forgotten.
- Dramatic Gun Cock: Right as Ki-Adi-Mundi is leading a charge over a bridge on Mygeeto, Bacara and his marines follow, then stop and cock their weapons. The Jedi turns and realizes he's suddenly facing a firing squad.
- In-Joke: His clone number is "1138", a reference to George Lucas' first film, THX 1138, and a Running Gag in the Star Wars franchise.
- Mook Lieutenant: He is the commanding officer of Ki-Adi-Mundi's Galactic Marines.
- Schrödinger's Canon: In Legends, he had begrudging respect and resentment towards Mundi. After Order 66 gets executed, he was brainwashed into thinking that the Jedi was a traitor and thought of all his men who died under Ki-Adi-Mundi's command in addition to feeling personally betrayed as he believed the Jedi had betrayed the trust of every one of the fallen troopers.
Jag was a captain and clone pilot and Plo Koon's wingman in the Battle of Cato Neimoidia.
Fil was a clone commander serving with Jedi Knight Nahdar Vebb. He and his squad worked with Nahdar and Jedi Master Kit Fisto to trap General Grievous in his base, only for Fil to fall victim to Grievous' pet monstrosity.
- Guns Akimbo: He wields two blaster pistols like many clone commanders.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: He dies in his first appearance, alongside his men and Nahdar.
Keeli was the clone captain of Jedi Master Ima-Gun Di. He and his clone troopers fought and died alongside their general to defend the civilians of Ryloth.
- Back-to-Back Badasses: With Master Di in their final moments.
- Determinator: After being wounded by a thermal detonator, Keeli manages to get back on his feet and fight alongside Master Di for a while longer before being shot twice in the chest.
- Dying Moment of Awesome: He, Di, and their men hold off a huge droid army long enough for all the Twi'lek civilians to escape what would have been a massacre.
- Heroic Sacrifice: He gave his life to ensure the Twi'lek civilians and resistance would escape the Separatist droid army.
- Meaningful Name: Like General Ima-Gun Di and Admiral Dao, his name is basically "kill I" because he was written solely to die.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: He dies in his first appearance, but he helps make it memorable.
Commander Jet (CC-1993)
Jet was a commander and clone special-ops commander who works under Jedi Master Ki-Adi-Mundi during the Second Battle of Geonosis.
- The Big Guy: His unit is specially trained to utilize heavy weapons, specifically flamethrowers, during the Second Battle of Geonosis.
- Commanding Coolness: A little ironically, since he and his clone troopers' fire weapons are anything but cool.
- Custom Uniform: He and his clone troopers' armor have a unique red and yellow color scheme.
- Kill It with Fire: He and his clone troopers use flamethrowers while battling Geonosians.
- Number Two: To Ki-Adi-Mundi on Geonosis.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Ki-Adi-Mundi is shown to be working with Commander Bacara and his Galactic Marines in the final year of the Clone Wars, leaving Jets fate ambiguous.
Doom was a clone commander assigned to twin Jedi Masters Tiplar and Tiplee during the Battle of Ringo Vinda.
- Custom Uniform: He wears unique looking armor with a green, yellow and gray color scheme.
- Guns Akimbo: Wielded two blaster pistols in battle.
- Number Two: To Tiplar and Tiplee.
- Scarred Equipment: He and his men have very beat-up and scarred armor.
- Shout-Out: His name, as well as his armor's color scheme, are confirmed to be references to Doctor Doom himself.
Monnk was a clone SCUBA trooper commander who served under Kit Fisto during the Battle of Mon Cala.
- Aquatic Mook: As a clone SCUBA trooper, he is outfitted for combat in aquatic environments.
- Badass in Distress: He and several of his troops are captured during the battle, and imprisoned alongside the Mon Calamari and Gungans. He later gets freed when the Quarren turn on the Separatists and rejoins the battle.
- Commanding Coolness: He held the rank of commander.
- Cool Helmet: Clone SCUBA troopers carry a scuba backpack kit that is equipped with gill grills and a pair of breathing tubes which circulated oxygen into their helmets.
- Custom Uniform: He has olive-colored armor with eel emblems in several places.
- Number Two: For Kit Fisto, as his SCUBA troopers' commander.
- Weapon of Choice: SCUBA troopers are equipped with specialized blaster rifles that can operate underwater.
Slick was a disillusioned clone sergeant who betrayed the Republic during the Battle of Christophsis.
- FaceHeel Turn: He is one of the first and few instances of a clone traitor.
- A Father to His Men: Subverted. He seems to genuinely care for the men in his squad and Rex and Cody accurately predict he'll take the news that one is a traitor hard. When they tell him, he initially tries to insulate his men from the questioning and requests a little time to talk it over with them in private. However, once Chopper reveals he's violated some clone rules, Slick immediately starts trying to pin the treachery on him, suggesting his motivation was less concern for his squad and more an attempt at damage control.
- Hypocrite: He claims to have worked for all of the clones' freedom, yet as Rex points out his actions put the lives of his brothers at risk.
- Hypocrite Has a Point: While his actions completely undermine the attempt, he is right about the clones being expendable soldiers, bred only for that purpose, with no choice what to make of their lives.
- The Mole: He was hired by the Separatists to sabotage the Republic during the Battle of Christophsis.
- Put on a Prison Bus: He is last seen being taken into custody, with no further word on his fate. However, as Scum and Villainy revealed that clones don't get due process and Slick committed treason (it's noted that Mace Windu had to negotiate to get Boba Fett a lighter sentence in the form of prison time), things don't look good for him.
- The Unfettered: Nothing was beyond him in trying to liberate his brothers, even sacrificing some of their lives.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Debated. The reason he gives for betraying the Republic was because he felt that they were enslaving the clones and his selling information to the Separatists was him striking a blow for clone freedom. However, Rex isn't buying it and points out the primary victims of Slick's betrayal were his fellow clones and guesses Slick's motivation was being well paid for his treason.
- What Measure Is a Mook?: One of the main reasons behind his betrayal.
Tango Company was a unit of clone troopers that fought at the Second Battle of Geonosis. Shortly after, the clones were infected by Geonosian brain worms and attempted to infect Padawans Barriss Offee and Ahsoka Tano aboard a Republic frigate on a supply drop to a medical station near Ord Cestus. However, the spread of the infection was halted by Ahsoka and there were few casualties.
- Bald of Evil: Scythe, the first clone to be infected and the one who brings the brain worms onboard the medical frigate, has a shaved head. Presumably, although we don't see what he's normally like, he doesn't otherwise fit the trope.
- Bittersweet Ending: Ahsoka and Barriss are careful enough to not hurt them once they realize brain worms are involved, but only after they kill at least one, and possibly up to three, clones in self-defense. Two clone pilots were also killed by the infected clones to hijack the ship.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: They get controlled by Geonosian brain worms. It's... not fun to watch.
- Foreshadowing: They're clone troopers that get deprived of their free will via brainwashing by a group believed to be extinct so they can kill the Jedi. Hmmm...
- Meaningful Name: "Tango" is usually associated with the color/tropical fruit orange, and Tango Company's insignia are tiger markings, as tigers live in the tropical rainforest and are orange. And of course, "Tango" is the equivalent of T in the NATO Alphabet and is shorthand for enemy.
- Schrödinger's Canon: All There in the Manual towards the end of the run of Legends canon stated that Tango Company served at the Siege of Lasan under the Empire.
Delta Squad was an elite squad of clone commandos. Its members were Boss, Sev, Scorch, and Fixer.
- The Bus Came Back: At least for Scorch, who appears in a voiceless cameo late into the first season of The Bad Batch.
- The Cameo:
- They were the clone squad that retrieved the bodies of Jedi Master Halsey and his Padawan Knox and brought them back to the Jedi Temple.
- Scorch appears as the only Imperial Commando in a hidden facility to retain his armor markings in episode 14 of The Bad Batch.
- Canon Immigrant: They're the main characters of Star Wars: Republic Commando. They appear in "Witches of the Mist", integrating them into canon.
- Continuity Nod: Their cameo in "Witches of the Mist" was a nod to the Republic Commando video game and book series, which are now no longer canon. However, their appearance in The Clone Wars is safely canon.
- Cool Helmet: They all have Clone Commando helmets.
- Curb Stomp Cushion: Scorch has a brief skirmish against the titular Bad Batch and while he ultimately loses, the fact he's able to flank and incapacitate both Gregor and Tech in seconds speaks to how much of a threat he was to them.
- Elite Army: They're an elite commando trained to deal with special missions.
- Fallen Hero: Just like in the Republic Commando Series, Delta Squad, minus Sev, go from one of the best squads to work alongside the Jedi to helping an Empire hunt down Jedi for treason since they tried to kill Palpatine, though only Scorch is seen note as one of the clone commandos training the first batch of TK Troopers, aka the Stormtroopers, to defend the peace Palpatine worked so hard to achieve.
- Hero of Another Story: We never actually get to see them do anything in The Clone Wars, but they were obviously active soldiers.
- Made of Iron: Scorch takes a lot more stun shots to knock out than other Imperial soldiers in "War-Mantle", although he eventually passes out after a whopping five direct hits and gets back up not long after. To put it in perspective, Gregor went down in two.
- Schrödinger's Canon: Given that they originated from Republic Commando, it begs the question of how much of Republic Commando is canon.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Due to the events of the game they originated in being left up in the air, it's completely unknown what happened to Delta Squad after Order 66 went down, but it is assumed they survived the Clone War. At the very least, Scorch was one of fifty Imperial Commandos present at a hidden facility training first generation Stormtroopers when Gregor decided to desert.
Ding & Kicker
Ding & Kicker were two clone troopers that were a part of the group tasked with clearing out artifacts from the Jedi outpost, Brighthome, after the execution of Order 66.
- Properly Paranoid: Ding is concerned that the Kaminoan cloning facilties are shut down, the last batch of clones will be trained before they too will eventually age out of service, while Kicker is worried that their succuessors, the Stormtroopers, won't effectively protect the Empire from enemeis of Palpatine, which is proven true when the Rebel Alliance comes onto the scene.Ding:I heard they shut down the facilities on Kamino. They'll train up the last batch of clones and that's it.
—>Kicker:But that's crazy. Who will protect the Empire?
—>Ding:Don't know, Kicker. But it won't be us. We get to pack up old Jedi way stations and crate everything back to Coruscant. I think our fighting days are done.
* Shoo Out the Clowns: After the Jedi are killed off, the Republic has reformed into an Empire, and Vader is told he has to adjust to his new life as a Sith Lord, the following issue starts with two clones goofing around like nothing's wrong while disturbingly talking about how they'll kill any Jedi that they come across. And then Vader shows up and mows them all down, with a complete disregard of the fact that he as Anakin saw them as more than just cannon fodder.
99 was a deformed clone who works as a janitor on Kamino. He befriended Domino Squad during their training, became an honorary member after they pass, and helped to defend the planet when the Confederacy invades.
- Almighty Janitor: Averted in that he really is just a janitor and has no leverage or authority. However, played somewhat straight in that his far greater than average knowledge of the cloning facility makes him incredibly helpful in the battle for the facility.
- Clone Degeneration: It's implied this is the reason for his malformity, even by the standards of the usual genetic modifications. According to Lama Su, the death of the original gene donor, Jango Fett, has forced the Kaminoans to thin out the remaining DNA samples, possibly resulting in 99 being conceived after Jango's death and aging a lot faster than the other clones who were grown nearly 10 years earlier.
- Cool Old Guy: He appears very elderly, possibly due to his aging being even more accelerated than other clones.
- Honorary True Companion: After Domino Squad finally passes the Citadel training course, Hevy makes him an honorary member of the squad for convincing him not to turn his back on his squad mates and realize his true potential. After he dies during the Battle of Kamino, Rex, Cody, Fives, Echo, and the rest of the clone troopers acknowledge him as a true clone trooper in the Grand Army for doing everything he could during the battle. The official designation of The Bad Batch is "Clone Force 99" in his honor.
- I Just Want to Be Badass: During the Battle of Kamino, 99 is quick to help however he can and seems determined to finally contribute to a battle like he was meant to do. Sadly, this makes him take unnecessary risks that end up getting him killed.
- Inspirationally Disadvantaged: He's one of the friendliest clones featured in The Clone Wars and he doesn't seem to suffer any grief about being unable to serve on the front lines. When Hevy tries to go AWOL in "Clone Cadets", he convinces Hevy to change his mind about abandoning his seemingly defective squad by reminding him that unlike him, 99 was never even given the chance to prove himself. When the Separatists come to Kamino, he is willing to do everything in his power to defend his home (namely supplying weapons and ammo and providing tactical information about Tipoca City's layout) and his death is ultimately mourned by his brothers.
- Nice Guy: He is one of the nicest clones introduced, never mocking or insulting anyone else, even teasingly, which most of the other clones do. Instead he simply tries to give them advice if they will listen to him.
- Non-Action Guy: He was relegated to being a maintenance clone due to his deformity and being physically unfit for combat. However, this doesn't stop him from trying to help out his brothers during the Battle of Kamino.
- Senseless Sacrifice: In "ARC Troopers", 99 ends up dying in an attempt to get more grenades. While it's certainly heroic that he was willing to try, that hallway was a deathtrap a Jedi would have had trouble running. His death ultimately accomplished nothing, though his life certainly mattered.
- Tragic Keepsake: Hevy gives him his graduation medal as thanks for inspiring him enough to pull Domino Squad through the final exam. He continues to hold onto it even after he learns Hevy was killed in action on Rishi.
- Younger Than They Look: Given that he's told to be one of the clones to be made after Jango's death, he's less than three years old by the time of his death.
Howzer was a clone captain stationed on Ryloth during the rise of the Empire.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Distinctly averted. Contrary to most clones, Howzer doesn't demonstrate the typical signs of Order 66 brainwashing from his inhibitor chip. He retains his armor customization and is much more approachable than clones still under the influence of the chip. He may be one of the lucky few not to be influenced by it, at least not to the degree most clones are.
- A Father to His Men: He has a good standing with the men under his command and refuses to abandon them, even when he has the chance to escape with Cham. He's even able to convince a few of his brothers to stand with him in decrying the Empire's actions.
- HeelFace Turn: He defies orders and assists in Cham's escape by preventing them from walking into a trap and openly disowns his loyalty to the Empire, even inspiring some of his men to follow suit.
- Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: Shows his face far more than any other Imperial-aligned clone in his single appearance.
- Prematurely Grey-Haired: His hair is starting to turn grey, and even accounting for the accelerated aging of the clones Howzer would not be old enough for that to be normal.
- Punch-Clock Villain: Howzer isn't a bad person with his only villainous quality being a soldier for the Empire. He abandons the villain part altogether when he realizes the Empire doesn't have the interests of Ryloth in mind.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: He's a soldier of the Empire, but he's still reasonable enough to let Hera off the hook when she's caught sneaking around in a restricted area.
- Rugged Scar: Has several prominent scars across his face, indicating that he has been around awhile and has plenty of experience.
- Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: In a surprising display for a post-Order 66 clone, Howzer goes against Rampart's orders and helps Cham escape Ryloth by preventing them from walking into a trap set by Crosshair.
- Still Wearing the Old Colors: Unlike most of the other clones, Howzer's armor is still custom painted in his unit colors.
- To Be Lawful or Good: Howzer truly believes in helping and liberating the people of Ryloth from tyranny, but he feels the need to uphold the Empire's orders to ensure that the planet doesn't collapse into anarchy and war again. However, he finds himself in conflict with his Imperial superiors as they begin to do more and more questionable actions that goes against everything he believed in. He decides to help Cham's forces and the Bad Batch escape Ryloth and openly defy against the Empire, preferring to be a good man arrested over a lawful soldier oppressing the people they sought to liberate.
- Token Good Teammate: For the post-Order 66 clones. Howzer retains some of his individuality and morals, shares a good friendship with Cham, covers for Hera when he catches her in a restricted area, and is hesitant to carry out some of his more unethical orders, vocally protesting Hera's arrest as she is only a child.
