All spoilers regarding the Skywalker Saga and The Clone Wars are unmarked. Examples relating to Disney's EU and the new movies can be spoiler-tagged if deemed necessary.
Tropes specifically applying to the characters based on their appearances in Star Wars Legends can be found here.
Grand Master Yoda
Master Obi-Wan Kenobi
Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker
Master Mace Windu
Homeworld: Haruun Kal
Mace Windu was a Jedi Master and member of the Jedi High Council during the last years of the Galactic Republic. During his time in the Jedi Order, he wielded a purple lightsaber and once served as elected leader of the Jedi and, during the Clone Wars, as a Jedi General in the Grand Army of the Republic. He was the greatest champion of the Jedi Order (second only to Yoda) and promoted its ancient traditions amidst the growing influence of the Dark Side of the Force in the corrupt, declining days of the Republic.
- Ace Custom: His Jedi starfighter is mostly white with a few red and green markings.
- Action Dad: He is a father figure to fellow High Councillor Depa Billaba and certainly a fierce warrior.
- Attack! Attack! Attack!: He created and utilizes Form VII, Vaapad, which is this trope in a nutshell. Vaapad is about constantly attacking as fast as possible, to overwhelm the enemy's defenses.
- Attack Reflector: During the climax of their duel, Mace used his lightsaber to reflect Sidious's own lightning back at him, which melted and scarred the Chancellor's face beyond recognition.
- Author Appeal: Samuel L. Jackson requested a purple lightsaber in Attack of the Clones because it's his favorite color (and it would make him easier to spot in large battle scenes).
- Badass Baritone: He speaks with a deep voice as a result of being portrayed by Samuel L. Jackson and voiced by Terrence Carson.
- Bald of Awesome: Mace is bald in addition to being a very powerful Jedi Master that is strong in the Force and a member of the Council.
- Bald, Black Leader Guy: Mace was the leader of the Jedi Council (while Yoda was the Grand Master of the Jedi Order) until he stepped down to concentrate on kicking ass during the Clone Wars.
- Big Good: He is this alongside Yoda in the Prequel Trilogy.
- Bling-Bling-BANG!: His lightsaber hilt is studded with electrum, an alloy of gold and silver, as part of his privileges as a high-ranking Jedi Master.
- Blood Knight: His Vaapad fighting style weaponizes it, using his own inner darkness and that of his foe to increase his power.
- Broken Pedestal: Mace still respected and even trusted Dooku to a degree after he left the Jedi Order, even defending him when Padmé suggests he was behind her attempted assassination. He is not pleased when he learns Dooku really was behind it all along, holding a lightsaber to his throat just before the Battle of Geonosis begins.
- The Comically Serious: When Mace had to team up with Jar Jar Binks in "The Disappeared", his serious demeanor is there to offset Jar Jar's wackiness.
- Cool Sword: Mace has a purple lightsaber, which stands out amongst the blue and green lightsabers all the other Jedi tend to have.
- Cynical Mentor: Mace is quite cynical in his view of galactic affairs compared to many of the other Jedi, such as Obi-Wan Kenobi. He also doesn't seem to like Anakin that much and opposes his training from the start.
- Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Mace is very particular about whom he teaches Vaapad to as most who have tried have fallen to the Dark Side. Form VII as a whole is like that, which is why it's much more prevalent among the Sith. Of course, Vaapad is powerful, but also difficult to master, since it places the user at risk of falling to the dark side. While not directly of the dark side in nature, Vaapad is often described as walking in the dark sides penumbra or as skirting the very edge of the light side, to the point that its often seen more used by Sith than Jedi.It takes incredible willpower and skill to master Vaapad, so much so in fact that in the Legends continuity, most people whom Windu taught Vaapad ended up falling the dark side because of it.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Surprisingly, considering the universe/franchise hes a part of. His main fighting style, Vaapad, allows him to weaponize his inner darkness and his opponents fury and bloodlust by channeling it through himself, then converting it into his attacks, sort of like a conductor loop. Its especially apparent when you know how dangerous Vaapad is and how it works(see Dangerous Forbidden Technique above for more details).
- Deadpan Snarker: Mace is occasionally shown to have a very dry and sardonic sense of humor.Ahsoka: Guard duty?! For how long?
Mace: Longer now.
- Death Glare: He gives one to Anakin right before Sidious blasts him away.
- Destination Defenestration: In Revenge of the Sith, he goes out in a spectacular fashion after being blasted out a window by Darth Sidious's Force lightning.
- Dislikes the New Guy: Mace Windu more than any other Jedi disapproves of Anakin Skywalker joining the Order. He continues to voice his general dislike for Anakin's volatile personality and unpredictability throughout his career. In Revenge of the Sith, Anakin reveals Palpatine is a Sith Lord and Windu starts to reconsider his opinion. That is, until Skywalker ultimately helps Palpatine kill him.
- Disney Villain Death: Although he's not a villain, he gets thrown out of Palpatines office to his death and the impact is never seen. This is pointed out by even Jackson himself.
- For Want of a Nail: Raising his lightsaber to dramatically kill Palpatine instead of just stabbing him gave Anakin the opportunity to intervene while his emotions were conflicted, thus causing Mace's death, Anakin's FaceHeel Turn, and The Purge of the Jedi.
- Good Is Not Soft: Mace is a virtually unstoppable force in combat and willing to break the Jedi Code if he feels it will serve the greater good.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: Mace uses a purple-bladed lightsaber.
- Hero with Bad Publicity / Historical Villain Upgrade: Not long after his death, he is framed by Palpatine and Anakin as a traitor who tried to assassinate The Good Chancellor as part of the Jedi's plot to take over, when in actual fact he was trying to save the galaxy from the tyranny of the Sith.Anakin: The Jedi have tried to overthrow the Republic.Padmé: I can't believe that!
- Horrible Judge of Character:
- In regards to Dooku. When Padmé states her belief that he was behind the attempt on her life, Mace says that Dooku would never try to assassinate anyone due to his sense of honor. We hate to break it to you, Mace, but...
- Zig-Zagged in regards to Anakin. Mace is wary of Anakin from the start and straight up tells Yoda and Obi-Wan he doesn't trust him. While Anakin does actually end up betraying the Jedi, part of the reason for this was because of Mace and some of the other Council members never trusting or supporting him, inadvertently pushing him away and into Palpatine's influence.
- Jerkass Has a Point:
- Deconstructed. Just because a Jerkass Has a Point doesn't mean He is Right. Although Mace did make a valid statement that Anakin was not fit to be trained as a Jedi, other Jedi (Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, Ahsoka, and even Yoda) reached out to Anakin and urged him to improve himself. By the time that Mace made his distrust of Anakin well-known, Anakin had proved himself a worthy Jedi several times over. In fact, it's Mace's stated lack of trust that indirectly makes Anakin easy prey to Darth Sidious' manipulations.
- He does have a more valid point about killing Darth Sidious in Revenge of the Sith. Anakin argues he should be spared to stand trial (mostly for his own selfish reasons), but Mace argues back that Sidious is "too dangerous to be left alive" he's got so much influence over the Senate he could arguably get himself off, or escape to continue the war. They arguably have enough evidence to justify that they killed him in self-defence as he confessed to being a Sith Lord to Anakin, killed three Jedi Masters, and tried to kill Mace after violently resisting arrest. Unfortunately, this only ends up helping Sidious in the long run when he brands the Jedi as traitors, as well as convincing the deeply conflicted Anakin to side with the Sith Lord.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: His cynicism, pragmatism, and stoicism make Mace come off as a cold uncaring jerk. Combined with his severe trust issues, most of the Jedi and other characters he interacts with have a difficult relationship with him. However, Mace does care deeply for all life, as shown with his efforts to save the Zillo Beast from destruction and his increasingly poor attitude during the Clone Wars is due to the heavy death toll the war has taken on the Jedi Order and civilians. Even though his attempt to reason with Boba after his arrest was rather tactless (and did nothing helpful in the long run), the guidebook Scum and Villainy revealed that the Republic Judiciary probably would have done worse to Boba than jail time (as rogue clones don't normally get a right to due process) had Mace not tried to negotiate for a lighter sentence.
- Kick the Dog: Instead of trying to reason with Boba about the circumstances of his father's death (that the latter was a natural casualty of war for attacking Republic forces, working with the leader of the Separatists, and the fact that Jango had tried to murder him first), Windu effectively tells the boy to deal with the fact that he wasn't able to complete his revenge and move on. Naturally, this had the opposite effect and by the time of the Original Trilogy, Boba is one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy and a frequent associate of Darth Vader.
- Knight In Sour Armor: Mace is far more cynical than Yoda to the point that he was distinctly unwilling to trust either Anakin or the Senate's legal system in Revenge of the Sith.
- Knight Templar: Somewhat downplayed as Mace lacks the self-righteousness of many of the other Jedi, but he believes in unquestionably upholding the peace of the Republic, even if it means breaking the Jedi Code. Palpatine ends up playing this against him, making him appear to be a lawless assassin trying to kill a helpless old man.
- Laser Blade: He wields a purple-bladed lightsaber, which is the only one seen in the Canon at this point and it stands out amongst the blue-bladed and green-bladed lightsabers all the other Jedi tend to have.
- Master Swordsman: According to Word of God, he was Yoda's superior as a warrior. According to other sources, he's second to Yoda and tied with Dooku. He also perfected Vaapad, a long incomplete and dangerous lightsaber fighting form.
- My Greatest Failure: Mace came to see his actions during the Battle of Geonosis as this afterwards. He regretted that he had not seized the opportunity to kill Dooku when he had the chance, preventing him from ending the Separatist threat then and there.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!:
- Indirectly, it is his refusal to apologize to Ahsoka for the way the Council treated her that leads to her walking away from the Order, which is an event that further inflames Anakin's anger with the Jedi.
- He probably should have listened to Anakin's plea not to kill Palpatine and instead place him on trial as it would have at least kept the Jedi from being branded as traitors and it could have delayed or outright prevented Order 66 from being executed. However, his action ended up forcing Anakin's hand, which caused him to lose his hand, die, and led to the execution of Order 66.
- Going back further, he is the one who issues the decree that Anakin will use his relationship with Palpatine to gather intel on what Palpatine might be plotting. He believes it is in the interest of the Jedi's loyalty to the Senate and the Republic, but in reality it just gives Palpatine more time to twist Anakin around his finger, which ends up undoing them all.
- Number Two: To Yoda in the Jedi Order.
- One-Man Army: Mace is on par with Yoda in his ability to devastate Separatist infantry singlehandedly, as seen during his systematic devastation of the droid forces he encounters in "Liberty on Ryloth".
- Parental Substitute: To Depa Billaba, his former Padawan. He rescued her from the pirates who had killed her parents as an infant, being the one to take her to the Temple. He then became her Master when she was old enough to be apprenticed and they became very close.
- Pragmatic Hero: Although he is still bound by the Jedi Code, Mace is more than willing to advocate more simple and direct approaches to ending the Clone Wars and stopping the Sith. He advocates sending a Jedi to assassinate (instead of capture) Count Dooku after he destroys a refugee convoy and tries to kill Palpatine despite having him at his mercy because he knows he is too dangerous to keep alive.
- Psychic Powers: He has these just like many of the other Jedi.
- Purple Is Powerful: He's one of the most powerful Jedi to ever live and his lightsabers blade is purple.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: He is very sound in judgment and willing to listen to Anakin, even when he doesn't trust him.
- Rule of Cool: This trope is the main reason why Mace Windu has a purple lightsaber because Samuel L. Jackson thought it looked cool. (Also so that he would be visible in a huge lightsaber battle.) His lightsaber is the only one used in the Canon that is not blue, green, or red.
- Sacrificial Lion: He is the first major Jedi to be killed in Revenge of the Sith, which sets the stage for the Jedi assassinations that were to follow due to the execution of Order 66.
- Scary Black Man: His implacable nature and fierce disposition are such that in the Ryloth campaign, Dooku ordered Wat Tambor and his army to retreat rather than face Windu. He was also able to scare off a Frangawl cultist just by looking at him after taking out the rest of his allies.
- Shatterpoint Tap: His unique ability is being able to see the shatterpoints of things in the Force. He has only been seen using it once in order to break the windshield of a broken-down Republic walker and rescue an unconscious Clone Trooper.
- Shoot the Dog: He views killing Palpatine instead of arresting him as this, given that the Sith Lord was too dangerous to keep alive and that he could manipulate the senate at a trial. Anakin disagreed.
- The Stoic: He is a very calm and collected Jedi and rarely lets any emotion show openly on his face. He has only been seen smiling a few times during the Clone Wars and the only time he seems upset is after learning Palpatine is actually Darth Sidious.
- Supporting Leader: He was this during the Jedi assault on the arena of Geonosis in Attack of the Clones.
- Token Human: He was this until Obi-Wan and Anakin joined the Jedi Council.
- Unwitting Pawn: Mace dies in an attempt first to arrest and then just kill Chancellor Palpatine, which is not only unsuccessful, but also provides Palpatine with ammunition for his claims that the Jedi attacked first. In a double irony, he also ends up making The Chosen One (Anakin), whom he himself had doubts about already, switch his allegiance to the man he attempted to "assassinate".
- We Used to Be Friends: He and Count Dooku were once friends. After Dooku left the Jedi Order, Mace believed that he was still a good man. The events of Geonosis revealed the truth to him.
- World's Best Warrior: He is the single greatest fighter in the Jedi Order at the time of his death, having cornered and pretty much submitted Darth Sidious when three other members of the Jedi Council were cut down in seconds (although it is perennially ambiguous if Sidious was beaten for real or only threw the fight). His only real peers at the time were Yoda (whom Windu may or may not be superior to according to conflicting sources) and Anakin (who's the Chosen One).
Ki-Adi-Mundi was a Cerean Jedi Master and a leading member of the Jedi High Council during the last years of the Galactic Republic. By the time of the Clone Wars, Mundi became a Jedi General of the Grand Army of the Republic. Like his Jedi colleagues, he led the Republic clone troopers against the Separatist Alliance forces in several battles across the galaxy, including the first and second Battles of Geonosis and the Outer Rim Sieges. During the final year of the Clone Wars, Mundi oversaw the Republic invasion of Mygeeto with the Galactic Marines under his command. During the campaign, Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine instructed the Grand Army soldiers to execute their Jedi leaders in accordance with Order 66, an act which resulted in the death of Mundi along with the majority of the Jedi Order.
- Agent Scully: He has a history of this. He was extremely skeptical of Qui-Gon Jinn's assertion that the Sith had returned and dismissed Padmé Amidala's claim that Count Dooku was behind the assassination attempt against her. He was also the most vocal in denying the possibility of Yoda's claim about making contact with the dead Qui-Gon, insisting it is impossible to maintain ones identity in the Force after death.
- Ascended Extra: He receives a fleshed out expanded role in The Clone Wars after being featured in the Prequel Trilogy as a peripheral member of the Jedi Council with small screen time and little to no lines.
- Badass Beard: He has a small white beard.
- Bald of Awesome: He is a particularly badass Jedi with a bald, racially characteristic head.
- Body-Count Competition: After the Second Battle of Geonosis, he manages to outscore Anakin and Ahsoka. He takes note of their competition and offhandedly asks what he's won. When Anakin replies that Ki-Adi won his respect, Obi-Wan half-jokingly remarks that it's quite a prize indeed.
- Cool Old Guy: When he heard Anakin denying to acknowledge Ahsoka's victory in the Body-Count Competition mentioned above, Mundi told Anakin that he out-scored both of them.
- Horrible Judge of Character: Before the Clone Wars, he refused to believe that Count Dooku was capable of falling to the Dark Side and ordering a political assassination.Ki-Adi-Mundi: He is a political idealist, not a murderer.
- It could be somewhat justified in the fact that judging by his age, he had to have known Dooku for decades before the latter left the Jedi Order, so it might just be denial that his old friend had become such a monster.
- Kill It with Fire: During the Second Battle of Geonosis, he ordered his clone troopers to use flamethrowers against the Geonosians.
- Laser Blade: He wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
- Mauve Shirt: In the Prequel Trilogy, he is the only member of the Jedi Council besides Yoda, Windu, Obi-Wan, or Anakin to have any lines.
- My Brain Is Big: He's a Cerean, a species with very large, elongated cranium that holds a binary brain.
- Non-Uniform Uniform: His signature outfit is notably different than most Jedi robes seen in the theatrical films and The Clone Wars, making it look like he actually goes around in street wear (which, in fairness, is what Jedi robes are supposed to resemble).
- Not So Above It All: Anakin and Ahsoka hold a Body-Count Competition during the Second Battle of Geonosis. After the battle, Ahsoka asked for Anakin's total and it turned out she won. Anakin, however, claimed that since he had called in the airstrike, it should add enough to his tally to make it a draw. Hearing this, Ki-Adi added his own total, which was larger than either Ahsoka's or Anakin's, causing both Anakin and Obi-Wan to fall into Stunned Silence for a moment as he casually asked what had he won.Anakin: My everlasting respect, Master Mundi.
Ki-Adi-Mundi: [sounding almost disappointed] Oh.
Obi-Wan: [reassuringly] That is a gift Anakin rarely bestows, I assure you.
- Oh, Crap!: He is one of the few Jedi who had a prescient moment about the Jedi Purge. Alas, it was not enough to save him, but he went down fighting instead of being shot in the back like so many of his comrades.
- Properly Paranoid:
- He was the only member of the Jedi Council to loudly admit that Dooku was not the Big Bad as they believed but The Dragon instead and that someone even more powerful was lurking in the shadows.
- While he was wrong to suspect the Sith were behind the voices Yoda had been hearing, he correctly guessed that the Master-Apprentice link between Yoda and Dooku could be exploited by the Sith, which is indeed what Sidious and Dooku ended up doing.
- Right for the Wrong Reasons: His aforementioned suspicions about the Master-Apprentice link are correct. However, he was wrong about the Sith being behind the voices Yoda was hearing.
- Rubber-Forehead Alien: He's a Cerean.
- Snow Means Death: Mundi is killed while he and his clone troopers are fighting a battle in the middle of a snowstorm.
Master Plo Koon
Species: Kel Dor
Plo Koon was a Kel Dor Jedi Master and member of the Jedi Council. He was regarded as one of the wisest Jedi in the Order. He had a close bond and served as a parental figure for Ahsoka Tano, whom he found and brought into the Order as a child.
- Ace Custom: He flies a Jedi starfighter with a white and blue color scheme.
- Ace Pilot: He was shown to be a pilot with skills rivaling Anakin's.
- Ascended Extra: He was one of the peripheral Jedi that were featured in the Prequel Trilogy with small screen time and zero lines. In The Clone Wars, he receives a fleshed out expanded role and the most screen time of all the Council members except for Obi-Wan, who's one of the deuteragonists.
- Author Appeal: He is Dave Filoni's favorite character.
- Badass Baritone: James Arnold Taylor uses a deep, Ian McKellen inspired voice for Plo Koon.
- Badass Long Robe: He dons an exceptionally badass one in "Lethal Trackdown".
- Bizarre Alien Biology: Apparently, Kel Dor like Koon can survive in space for a short time with only their breathing masks protecting them.
- Character Death: He is killed following the execution of Order 66 when his starfighter is shot down on Cato Neimoidia by his clone trooper wingmates.
- Creepy Good: His squishy alien physiognomy and vaguely evil-looking mask make him look pretty sinister for a good guy.
- Cool Mask: His breathing mask.
- Deadpan Snarker: He's got his moments, particularly in "Lethal Trackdown" when it comes to Ahsoka's lack of subtlety.
- Explosive Decompression: Averted and lampshaded. Before leaving a space pod, he ordered his men to put on their helmets and follow him. He didn't need any protection because he can survive in space long enough to deal with a few Battle Droids.
- A Father to His Men: When he and three of his clone troopers were trapped in a non-functional escape pod, the clone troopers were very pessimistic about their chances to survive, but Plo kept their hope alive by continuously reasserting that their lives weren't meaningless.Plo: Sergeant, why are you so certain no one is coming?
Sergeant Sinker: We're just clones, sir. We're meant to be expendable.
Plo: Not to me.
- The Gadfly: When Plo, Adi Gallia, and Commander Wolffe catch up with 3PO and R2 aboard Grievous's flagship in "Nomad Droids", this ensues:C-3PO: Yes, Commander Wolffe. How have you been, sir? We have been on quite an adventure.
Plo: Well, I'm certain Wolffe would love to hear about it.
Wolffe: Uh, a-actually, sir...
- Gratuitous Foreign Language: "Ko-toh-ya" is a Kel'dor greeting that he and Ahsoka use towards each other.
- Humanoid Aliens: Kel Dor have the general body structure of a human, but their facial structure is so different and they have only four fingers.
- I Am the Noun: Somewhat overlaps with Badass Boast.Boba Fett: I want justice.
Plo Koon: We are justice.
- Laser Blade: He wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
- Not So Similar: He serves as a foil to Anakin via their relationships with Ahsoka. He is often used (most blatantly in "Padawan Lost" and during the Fugitive arc) to provide contrast between normal Jedi friendship and Anakin's struggles with Dark Side levels of attachment. Plo is not always in the right, but even his mistakes are consistently in the direction of a Jedi's mistakes rather than torturing prisoners for information.
- Old Master: Somewhat downplayed, but he is the older mentor figure for Ahsoka. He actually shares this role for her with Obi-Wan himself.
- Out of Focus: After getting a significant amount of screentime in some of the early episodes, he fades more and more into the background as The Clone Wars goes on.
- Parental Substitute: He was the Jedi who found Ahsoka and brought her to the Temple. They maintained a strong bond with each other that mirrors a father and daughter.
- The Stoic: Most of the time, unless the situation gets very serious. If he ever does smile, it's hidden by his mask. This is best shown in "Lethal Trackdown", where he doesn't lose his cool when he has a gun pointed at the back of his head.
- To Be Lawful or Good: Type two. According to Dave Filoni, Plo actually sided with Ahsoka (one of three Council members to do so) in the Council's discussions and voting during the Fugitive arc. He also looks visibly saddened by the whole mess more than once and voices protest on-screen. However, the Jedi serve the Senate and must put duty over their personal feelings, so he participates in her arrest and (initially temporary but ultimately permanent) removal from the Order anyway.
Master Even Piell
Even Piell was a Lannik Jedi Master and member of the Jedi Council. He was a gruff and battle-hardened warrior who was entrusted with many important missions during the Clone Wars.
- Ascended Extra: He receives an expanded role in The Clone Wars after being featured in the Prequel Trilogy as one of the peripheral members of the Jedi Council with small screen time and zero lines.
- Badass in Distress: He was captured by Separatists and imprisoned in the Citadel.
- Death In The Limelight: He dies towards the end of the Citadel arc.
- Determinator: Master Piell refuses to share the intel, even under heavy torture.
- Eye Scream: He lost an eye way prior to The Clone Wars. A torture droid almost gouged out the other one.
- Husky Russkie: He speaks with a Russian accent. He's pretty small, but still pretty tough.
- I'm Dying, Please Take My MacGuffin: With his last breath, he entrusted his half of the Nexus Route coordinates to Ahsoka.
- Laser Blade: He wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He's roughly twice Yoda's height, which means he reaches to about waist-level for most characters. That doesn't stop him from being as badass as anyone else four times his size.
- Rubber-Forehead Alien: Lanniks look similar to humans. However, they are rather short and have long, pointy ears, giving them a vague resemblance to Yoda's species.
Master Adi Gallia
Adi Gallia was a Tholothian Jedi Master and member of the Jedi Council.
- Ace Custom: Her Jedi starfighter is painted red with white stripes.
- Ace Pilot: She flies alongside Saesee Tiin and Kit Fisto in "Citadel Rescue".
- Action Girl: She is a capable Jedi Master and was selected to assist Obi-Wan in hunting down Darth Maul and Savage Opress.
- Ascended Extra: She receives an expanded role in The Clone Wars after being featured in the Prequel Trilogy as a peripheral member of the Jedi Council with small screen time and little to no lines.
- Back-to-Back Badasses: With Anakin in "Grievous Intrigue".
- Badass in Distress: In "Nomad Droids", she was captured by General Grievous.
- The Cameo: She does appear a lot in the background for Jedi Council meeting scenes, but she either has only a few spoken lines or none at all.
- Damsel out of Distress: She and her soldiers escaped from Grievous on their own before Plo Koon's rescue team reached her in "Nomad Droids".
- Dropped a Bridge on Her: Her death during the lightsaber duel that she and Obi-Wan had with Darth Maul and Savage Opress on Florrum was very sudden and brutal.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Twice, courtesy of Savage Opress. Savage first impaled her with his horns and then delivered the finishing blow with his lightsaber.
- Laser Blade: She wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Her aforementioned escape.
- Rubber-Forehead Alien: Although she looks human, she is actually Tholothian, a near-human species with scaled craniums and head tendrils. (In Legends works written before The Clone Wars, she and Stass Allie were stated to be humans wearing cultural headdresses; it wasn't until a Legends sourcebook for The Clone Wars that they were first identified as Tholothians, with them initially being presumed to be Human Aliens until Canon works established that the "headdresses" are part of their biology)
- Sacrificial Lion: Her death happens in "Revival" (the season five premiere of The Clone Wars) is this as it both demonstrates (outside of flashbacks) that Maul and Savage are very dangerous and that Anyone Can Die.
Master Saesee Tiin
Saesee Tiin was an Iktotchi Jedi Master who served on the Jedi High Council during the last years of the Galactic Republic. A skilled lightsaber combatant and starfighter pilot, Tiin fought in the Clone Wars as a Jedi General of the Grand Army of the Republic. He was slain by Darth Sidious when the Jedi confronted the Sith Lord, who was revealed to be the true identity of Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine.
- Ace Custom: He flies a green Jedi starfighter with white markings.
- Ace Pilot: As shown in "Citadel Rescue", he's quite an accomplished pilot.
- Ascended Extra: He receives a expanded role in The Clone Wars after being in the Prequel Trilogy as one of the peripheral members of the Jedi Council with small screen time and little to no lines.
- The Cameo: Mostly in Council meeting scenes.
- Early-Bird Cameo: In The Clone Wars, he was amongst the four Council members waiting for the remains of Savage Opress' first victims to be brought back to the Temple, but had no speaking role until "Citadel Rescue".
- Horned Humanoid: Its one of the traits of his species.
- Laser Blade: He wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
- Mauve Shirt: He was the least developed out of the members of the Jedi Council who received a fleshed out expanded role in The Clone Wars.
- Rubber-Forehead Alien: He's an Iktotchi, a species that has two horns hanging from fleshly tendrils on both sides of their temples.
- The Worf Effect: He was brought in with Mace to confront Palpatine because he is one of the most powerful Jedi in the Order, but he is killed within seconds of the duel against Sidious beginning.
Master Depa Billaba
A Jedi Master from Chalacta who served on the Jedi Council during the crisis on Naboo and prior to the Clone Wars. She was the former Padawan of fellow Jedi Council member Mace Windu. Near the end of the Clone Wars, she took Caleb Dume as her apprentice, but was killed during Order 66 before she could complete his training.
- Adaptational Heroism: Her Legends counterpart eventually fell to the Dark Side. In the rebooted canon, she never had a stint with the Dark Side and actually gets a Heroic Sacrifice instead.
- Adaptational Species Change: In Legends, Chalactans were a Human Alien species with negligible differences from humans. The new continuity has retconned the species into simply being another human culture from Chalacta.
- Ascended Extra: She was a minor character in the Legends continuity, but in the new continuity she served as the mentor to one of the most important characters in Rebels and comparatively got a greater amount of focus in the comics.
- Blatant Lies: During Order 66, she tells Caleb to run, saying she'll "be right behind [him]". Caleb later states he knew she was lying, but he ran away.
- Braids of Action: She wears her hair in two looped braids.
- Don't Call Me "Sir": She requests to not be called "General".
- Dramatic Irony: When Caleb tells her how happy he is, she tells him not to grow too fond of his life as it is now, because the universe is always changing. Soon afterwards, Order 66 happens, she's killed and Caleb is essentially orphaned while the Republic turns into the Empire.
- General Failure: Struggles with viewing herself as one after Grievous killed ninety percent of her men and put her in a coma during the Battle of Haruun Kal.
- Heroic Sacrifice: She was killed during Order 66, holding off clone troopers to buy enough time for Caleb to escape. Afterwards, Caleb changed his name to Kanan Jarrus and went into hiding.
- In the Back: She falls during Order 66 after being shot in the back by Commander Grey after becoming distracted by Captain Styles and his men going after Caleb.
- Laser Blade: Wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
- Lighter and Softer: Compared to her Legends incarnation. Depa disagrees with the rest of the Council about the Jedi's role in the war, but she doesn't fall to the Dark Side this time.
- Master Swordswoman: As to be expected of a Jedi Master on the Council, Depa is highly skilled with a lightsaber. She is particularly skilled with Form III (Soresu) which she teaches to students at the Jedi Temple and specifically to Caleb.
- The Mentor: To Kanan, and he reflects on her teachings from time to time even ten years after her death.
- Mythology Gag: Her getting so injured she was in a coma for six months after the Battle of Haruun Kal is reminiscent of her Legends counterpart falling into a deep coma after a war on Haruun Kal in Shatterpoint.
- Parental Abandonment: Her parents were killed by pirates who then took an infant Depa captive. Luckily, Mace rescued her and brought her to the Jedi Temple.
- Reluctant Warrior: She believes that the Jedi made a mistake in taking on military titles.
- Sanity Slippage: There is some fear that she is this among the Jedi, with some calling her "damaged", after she lost most of her company to General Grievous and spent six months in a coma. Billaba herself seems to agree that "damaged" is a crass but accurate assessment.
- There Is No Kill Like Overkill: After falling from the initial shot to her back following the execution of Order 66, several clone troopers gather around Depa and fire several more shots into her body to ensure that she is dead.
Yaddle was a female Jedi Council member from the same species as Yoda. She served on the Jedi Council during the invasion of Naboo, but was no longer on the Council when the Clone Wars began.
- Little Green Men: She belongs to the same unidentified species as Yoda.
- The Mentor: Just like in the Legends continuity, she has been established as the Master of fellow Jedi Council member Oppo Rancisis.
- Pointy Ears: A trait of her species.
- Really 700 Years Old: According to this article, she was 477 when Naboo was invaded.
- Spared by the Adaptation: In Legends, she was killed on a mission prior to the Clone Wars, which eventually led to her seat being taken by Shaak Ti. In the Canon, she's not on the Council after The Phantom Menace because she simply decided to take a less active role in the Order's affairs. How much longer she lived after her resignation is another story.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: At the moment, there is no explanation in the Canon as to what happened to her after she resigned from the Jedi Council.
Master Oppo Rancisis
Oppo Rancisis was a Thisspiasian Jedi Master on the Council during the blockade of Naboo and the Clone Wars.
- The Cameo: He tends to make these in the Jedi Council scenes in the Prequel Trilogy and The Clone Wars.
- Multi Armed Multi Tasking: Thisspiasians have two pairs of arms in Legends, with Rancisis keeping his second pair hidden under his robes.
- Really 700 Years Old: At the time of the Blockade of Naboo, Rancisis was 174 years old.
- Snake People: He is a Thisspiasian, a long-lived snakelike (yet rather hairy) species.
- Spared by the Adaptation: In Legends, he was killed by the fallen Jedi, Sora Bulq, late in the Clone Wars. However, there's no word of Sora Bulq ever falling to the Dark Side in the Canon and Issue 19 of Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith shows a list of Jedi who survived the execution of Order 66, with Rancisis among them.
- The Strategist: Just like his Legends counterpart, Rancisis is mentioned to be a "tactical mastermind".
Master Yarael Poof
Yarael Poof was a Quermian member of the Jedi Council during the invasion of Naboo.
- Bizarre Alien Biology: As a Quermian, he has a secondary brain in his chest cavity. He also has no spine despite being humanoid.
- Bus Crash: According to All There in the Manual, he died in a mission after the events of The Phantom Menace.
- Long Neck: He provides the page image for the trope. In fact, this is the out-of-universe reason for his absence in Attack of the Clones — Lucas didn't want anyone confusing him with the somewhat similar-looking Kaminoans.
- Multi-Armed Multitasking: As a Quermian, he has two pairs of arms, one of the pairs hidden underneath his robes.
- Schrödinger's Canon: His death. The graphic novel Zam Wessell (written before the Disney buyout) explains that he died between the events of The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, and that he was forced to sacrifice himself to stop a rogue general from destroying Coruscant with a Doomsday Device. This hasn't been confirmed as canon under the new continuity, but it hasn't been contradicted.
- Unfortunate Names: In British slang, "poof" is a derogatory term for "homosexual", similar to "fag" in American english.
Master Kit Fisto
Homeworld: Glee Anselm
Kit Fisto was a Nautolan Jedi Master and member of the Jedi Council. He was known for being skilled in battle and far more humorous and laid-back than many of his colleagues.
- Ace Custom: His Jedi starfighter is painted red along the edges with some white in the middle, along with green markings which were the same as the emblems displayed on Kit's gauntlets.
- Alien Hair: His tentacles.
- Ascended Extra: He receives a fleshed out expanded role in The Clone Wars after being featured in the Prequel Trilogy as a peripheral member of the Jedi Council with small screen time and zero lines.
- Badass Baritone: Courtesy of Phil La Marr.
- Badass in Distress: He is briefly held captive during the Battle of Mon Cala and tortured alongside Anakin. He is freed when the Quarren turn on the Separatists.
- Cat Smile: This is his normal facial expression.
- Day in the Limelight: In "Lair of Grievous", Kit is the main protagonist and gets a chance to show off his skills against General Grievous.
- Deadpan Snarker: He is kind of one, particularly towards Anakin during the Battle of Mon Cala.
- Dual Wielding: He used this technique rather epically in a duel with Grievous.
- Fish People: Nautolans are an amphibian species and Kit is noted to be most comfortable on water worlds like his native Glee Anselm.
- Friend to All Children: His laid-back personality and sense of humor is why he's popular among the Younglings.
- Green-Skinned Space Babe: A rare male version. Kit's shirtless scenes during the Mon Calamari arc in The Clone Wars present him to be quite fit.
- Grin of Audacity: He briefly flashes one during the battle in the Geonosis arena after coming across a Battle Droid with the head of a certain unlucky protocol droid attached to its body.
- Humanoid Aliens: Nautolans like him are tentacle-headed, green-skinned, amphibian humanoids.
- I Surrender, Suckers: He pulls this on Grievous, but substitutes an escape for the trope's dictated attack. Grievous' look when his surrender demand is (seemingly) accepted is priceless.
- Lantern Jaw of Justice: His design in the The Clone Wars has a much stronger, square jawline than he had in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith because neither of his designs in the Prequel Trilogys films translated well in animation that he's a heroic character.
- Laser Blade: He wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
- Little "No": He says this when his former Padawan Nahdar Vebb is killed by Grievous.
- Master Swordsman: He is considered one of the finest lightsaber duelists in the Jedi Order, managing to single-handedly defeat General Grievous in a lightsaber duel when multiple Jedi Knights and Masters (albeit, while they were exhausted) failed.
- Mauve Shirt: Of the three Jedi Mace Windu brings to confront Palpatine, Fisto lasts the longest against the Dark Lord Of The Sith.
- The Mentor: To Nahdar Vebb, although the war made it impossible for him to be there when he completed his trials and became a Jedi Knight. When he finally sees Nahdar again, he is disturbed by how aggressive the war has made his former apprentice.
- Mr. Fanservice: In The Clone Wars, he is the only male character to have a completely gratuitous, non-justifiable Shirtless Scene. The writers joked that it was something of a Twilight reference.
- Perpetual Smiler: He always seems to have a smile on his face, even when idle. When he does actually smile, it's a very big cheesy grin.
- Red Shirt: Played With due to The Clone Wars giving him a fleshed out expanded role, but in the Prequel Trilogy, he does little but knock over C3-PO and get killed by Chancellor Palpatine.
- Shirtless Scene: Let's just say there was a good reason all of Kit's fangirls looked forward to the fourth season of The Clone Wars.
- Tactical RockPaperScissors: Part of the reason for his success against Grievous is the fact that Fisto's preferred lightsaber form, Form I, specializes in taking on multiple opponents at once. As a result, he was able to adapt far more easily to Grievous' multi-armed assault than most other lightsaber wielders.
- The Worf Effect: He was brought with Mace to confront Palpatine because he is one of the most powerful Jedi in the Order; while he puts up a better fight than Tinn and Kolar, Sidious still manages to quickly kill him.
Master Shaak Ti
Shaak Ti was a female Togruta Jedi Master and member of the Jedi Council. During the Clone Wars, she oversaw the training and cloning facilities on Kamino.
- Action Girl: She is a very capable Jedi Master and her skills made her a good choice to oversee the training of new Clone Troopers and defend Kamino from an assault.
- Alien Hair: Her horns and head-tails.
- Ascended Extra: She receives an expanded role in The Clone Wars after being featured in the Prequel Trilogy via occasional cameos.
- The Cameo: She tends to briefly appear mostly in the Jedi Council meeting scenes. Also, a holocron displays her image in the main Star Wars comic.
- Clones Are People, Too: In her conversation with Lama Su about the Domino Squad, she argued that they can't just cast off the Dominos since they're living beings.
- Death by Adaptation: In Legends, she was one of the few Jedi to survive Order 66, and spent sixteen years in hiding before eventually meeting her end at the hands of Galen Marek on Felucia. In Canon, she died at Vader's hand (or blade, rather) during the Jedi Temple Massacre (but not before recording a final message on a Holocron).
- Face Death with Dignity: She chose not to fight when the Jedi Temple was assaulted, opting instead to record some teachings in a Holocron for a future Jedi to use. She calmly meditated while waiting for her death at Darth Vader's hands.
- Fling a Light into the Future: During the assault on the Jedi Temple, she records a message on a holocron and begs for whoever finds it to not let the Jedi die out from the Empire's purge. This holocron ends up in the hands of Grakkus the Hutt, whose collection of Jedi artifacts end up seized by the Empire.
- A Mother to Her Men: In addition to her mentality mentioned above, she also gave some warm-hearted advice to Fives and Echo. She also stood up for Fives when Nala Se threatened to have him decommissioned for removing his own inhibitor chip.
- Horned Humanoid: Her montrals are hollow horns.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: During Yoda's vision in "Voices", he sees several Jedi die during the events of Revenge of the Sith, including Shaak Ti being impaled from behind by Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber. This canonized a deleted scene in Revenge of the Sith that was never completed.note
- In the Back: During the Jedi Temple Massacre, Vader sneaks up behind her while she's meditating. Shaak Ti, unaware of Anakin's fall to the Dark Side, doesn't realize the purpose of his presence until he's already stabbed her through the upper torso with his Lightsaber.Shaak Ti: What is it, Skywalker?
- Lady of War: During the Battle of Kamino, she took out a bunch of Aqua Droids very gracefully.
- Laser Blade: She wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
- Out of Focus: She's the only member of the Jedi Council who had an expanded role than occasional cameos that didn't get a Day in the Limelight episode in The Clone Wars.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: As the general in charge of overseeing clone training, she's essentially a happy medium between El-Les and Bric, caring about the trainees as individuals and wanting them to succeed, but also understanding the need for a sink or swim mentality.
- Rubber-Forehead Alien: She's a Togruta, a species that has two hollow horns and three head-tails.
- Unexplained Accent: She sounds vaguely Latina or somewhere close to that, due to her voice actress. (On the other hand, her actress in the films is Israeli.)
Master Eeth Koth
Homeworld: Nar Shaddaa
Eeth Koth was a Zabrak Jedi Master who was a member of the Jedi Council in addition to serving as one of the Jedi generals during the Clone Wars. At some point prior to the end of the Clone Wars and the execution of Order 66, he was kicked out of the Council (and the Order as a whole) and he joined the Church of Ganthic Enlightenment as a priest.
- Action Dad / Papa Wolf: Despite no longer being a Jedi, he's still a skilled fighter, taking on Darth Vader in an attempt to protect his newborn daughter.
- Ain't Too Proud to Beg: When Vader comes for his family, he pleads with him that he's no longer affiliated with the Jedi and will even help him find other Jedi who survived the Purge if he will only leave his family alone. Vader is unmoved, prompting a lightsaber duel.

- Back for the Dead: After his previous appearance in The Clone Wars, Koth makes his return in Dark Lord of the Sith (which revealed that he was kicked out of the Jedi Order and became a priest, leading him to be replaced by another Zabrak Jedi named Agen Kolar), only to be hunted down and killed by Darth Vader.
- Badass in Distress: In "Grievous Intrigue", he was captured by General Grievous. Although, he did put up a good fight against him and his MagnaGuards.
- Badass Preacher: Following the rise of the Empire, he becomes a priest of the Church of Ganthic Enlightenment and proves he can still kick ass when it comes to defending his family, not that it does him much good in the end.
- Character Development: Following the Jedi Purge, Darth Vader remarks that he no longer controls his emotions as much as when he was a Jedi, strongly sensing fear, resentment and anger from him. He also no longer holds much loyalty to the Jedi and their teachings, placing a much higher priority on his family.
- Electric Torture: He was subjected to it repeatedly while he was held captive by Grievous.
- Facial Markings: As is typical for a member of his species.
- Horned Humanoid: He is a Zabrak, after all.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: He dies as a result of being stabbed in the back by Darth Vader.
- I Shall Taunt You: He takes the time to goad Grievous with some insults before their duel.Grievous: Eeth Koth, isn't it? I've been looking forward to meeting you!
Koth: Your reputation precedes you, General. A reputation of a coward and a murderer...
Grievous: Murderer? Is it murder to rid the galaxy of you Jedi filth?!

- Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: His species, the Vurks, were modelled after the well-known hadrosaurid Parasaurolophus.
- Laser Blade: He wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
- Leeroy Jenkins: During the Battle of Geonosis, he attempts to attack Count Dooku without any backup. While Dooku seems surprised by his appearance, Trebor is so focused on killing Dooku he does not notice Jango, who manages to get the drop on him.
- Red Shirt: He has no lines, and exists for Jango to kill and help establish how skilled he is.
- Sdrawkcab Name: "Trebor" is the reverse of Robert, which is a reference to Robert Coleman, an employee at Industrial Light & Magic.
- The Worf Effect: He is a Jedi Master on the Jedi Council, but he gets almost effortlessly taken down by Jango Fett.
Master Stass Allie
Stass Allie was a Tholothian Jedi Master who became part of the Jedi Council towards the end of the Clone Wars as a result of the death of Adi Gallia.

- Rubber-Forehead Alien: She looks exactly like a human except for her purple eyes, scaled cranium, and head tendrils.
- Schrödinger's Canon: In Legends, she was Adi Gallia's cousin.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: She looks almost exactly like Adi Galla and joined the Jedi Council after her death. She was originally intended to be Adi Galla when the actress in The Phantom Menace did not return, but looked sufficiently different enough to become a different character.

- The Cameo: He tends to make brief appearances in The Clone Wars.
- He Who Must Not Be Heard: He has yet to speak in any Canon source (or even a Legends source).
- Humanoid Alien: Ongree like Kcaj have the basic humanoid body type, but a triangular head with the eyes at the bottom of the face on the side with a mouth in the middle.

- What Happened to the Mouse?: A list of Jedi who survived Order 66 in Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith lists Kcaj among them. His eventual fate is currently unknown.
Homeworld: Cassandran Worlds
Sifo-Dyas was a Jedi Master who was formerly a member of the Jedi Council. He advocated for the creation of an army for the Republic when he foresaw the coming war with the Trade Federation, but the Jedi Council opposed this and removed him from his position. Nonetheless, Sifo-Dyas went to the remote planet of Kamino to request the creation of a clone army under the guise of representing a request of the Galactic Senate.
- Ascended Extra: During the Yoda arc in The Clone Wars, he receives an expanded (though posthumous) role and we actually see what he looks like and learn more about him.
- The Ghost: Briefly, in Attack of the Clones — he didn't make an appearance until the Yoda arc in The Clone Wars.
- Louis Cypher: Subverted. Some had speculated that the name Sifo-Dyas was a cover name for Darth Sidious, but it was later confirmed that they were two separate people.
- Laser Blade: He wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
- Meaningful Name: Not his own, but the name of his home region, the Cassandran Worlds, are taken from the danger-seeing prophetess of Greek mythology who was cursed to never be believed.
- Military Coup: Darth Tyranous wanted to ensure that the Sith would have influence over the clone army, which would serve as the reason for Sifo-Dyas' death.
- Posthumous Character: He is this in the Prequel Trilogy. The circumstances of his death are revealed in The Clone Wars.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: The apparition that Palpatine created had this trait, which was how Yoda was able to tell he was an imposter.
- Samurai Ponytail: He's space Asian and sports a genuine chonmage hairstyle.
- Small Role, Big Impact: In spite of dying a decade before the events of Attack of the Clones, he is directly responsible for the creation of the Republic Clone army.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: To the Jedi Order, as it would turn out. He only became this due to Palpatine taking interest in the Clone army.
- Unwitting Pawn: To Palpatine, par the course. Sifo-Dyas wanted the Republic to create a standing army and that's just what Palpatine established.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: From the Jedi Council's point of view, which is what got him demoted. Granted, he's not necessarily wrong for thinking there should be an army.
