Hero Overview

Faith in your new apprentice, misplaced may be - as is your faith in the Dark Side of the Force...
~ Yoda to Palpatine
Premonitions, premonitions. These visions you have... (Anakin: They are of pain, suffering. Death.) Yourself you speak of, or someone you know? (Anakin: Someone.) Close to you? (Anakin: Yes.) Careful you must be when sensing the future Anakin. The fear of loss is a path to the dark side. (Anakin: I won't let my visions come true, Master Yoda.) Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed that is. (Anakin: What must I do Master Yoda?) Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.
~ Yoda to Anakin Skywalker, on death.
Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.
~ Yoda teaching Luke about the Force.
Heeded my words not did you: pass on what you have learned. Strength, mastery. Hmm. But weakness, folly, failure also. Yes, failure most of all. The greatest teacher, failure is. Luke... we are what they grow beyond. That is the true burden of all masters.
~ Yoda to Luke Skywalker about the lessons of failure.
Do or do not. There is no try.
~ Yoda to Luke Skywalker.

Yoda is a major character in the Star Wars franchise.

While eccentric, Yoda was an extremely wise, experienced, skillful and powerful Jedi. He was the most knowledgeable and trained Jedi Master as well as the wisest, strongest and most powerful Jedi of his time, immensely powerful and skilled with the use of the Light Side of the Force and exceptionally skilled in lightsaber combat with centuries worth of training, experience and knowledge in both the Force and Lightsaber Combat.

For his surpassing wisdom, skill and power, Yoda was the Grand Master of the Jedi Order who helped train Luke Skywalker and other heroes as well as facing off against and nearly defeating among the most formidable of villains such as Count Dooku and even Palpatine himself in the more recent films - he is a gentle teacher, but like all Jedi will fight fiercely to defend the galaxy from the Dark-Side of the Force.

He was a supporting character in the original trilogy, serving as a major character in The Empire Strikes Back, and as a minor yet pivotal character in Return of the Jedi. He was also a major character in the prequel trilogy, and a posthumous character in the sequel trilogy.

He was also in both the 2008 movie The Clone Wars and it's 2008-2020 TV series of the same name as a major character.

He was portrayed in motion-capture and voice by Frank Oz in the saga films and Tom Kane in the Clone Wars media. Kane also voiced Professor Utonium in The Powerpuff Girls series, Darwin the Chimp in The Wild Thornberrys, Takeo Masaki in Call of Duty zombies and James Gordon in Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Career Accomplishments

Apart from helping to win a few battles, such as the Battle of Geonosis, Yoda has helped bring hundreds of Jedi to Knighthood.

Personality

Yoda had spent eight centuries training and tutoring generations of Jedi, he was reluctant to accept Anakin Skywalker or Luke Skywalker for Jedi training, considering them unfit during his first encounter with them. In both cases, however, he allowed Obi-Wan Kenobi to persuade him into accepting them as trainees.

To his students Yoda could be very strict the one moment, testing them to their mental and physical limits, and grandfatherly the next.

When Dooku triggered a partial room collapse during his duel with Yoda on Geonosis, the Jedi, confronted with the choice of pursuing the fleeing Sith or protecting the hurt Obi-Wan Kenobi and unconscious Anakin Skywalker from the falling debris, opted to save his comrades instead of going after Dooku. However, when fellow Master Plo Koon's fleet was destroyed by the Confederate super-weapon Malevolence, Yoda forbade Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano to conduct a search for Koon, citing the danger posed by the Separatist vessel. This shows that Yoda values the lives of his fellow Jedi enough that he would choose saving them over defeating a Sith Lord but his value does not cloud his judgement. His value for the other Jedi is shown when he fell to his knees after sensing many of their deaths, showing that Yoda deeply cared for them.

Yoda has no fear of death and he would often advise others questioning about death to not fear it and instead rejoice that they would become one with the Force. Even as he neared his death before the Battle of Endor commenced, Yoda fully accepted his own mortality and imminent demise, died peacefully and became one with the Force.

Yoda's ears were expressive and would sometimes curl when he was expressing strong emotions like surprise.

Powers and Abilities

Despite his small size, Yoda was the greatest Jedi Master of his era and even in his advanced age, possessed exceptional abilities in both the Force and Lightsaber Combat.

A tremendously proficient lightsaber duelist with decades of experience, Yoda was considered to be the only Jedi who surpassed Mace Windu and Count Dooku in skill. He wielded a short green bladed lightsaber with impeccable skill, capable of not only easily holding his own against Dooku, now Darth Tyranus, despite the latter having previously easily outclassed Anakin and Kenobi, both remarkably skilled duelists, but he also had a noticeable advantage and he would have defeated Tyranus had he not fled, as well as fighting on par with and overwhelming Sidious in lightsaber combat, forcing Sidious to use the Force to stalemate Yoda. In addition to one-on-one lightsaber duels, Yoda also displayed the ability to defeat several blaster wielding foes with ease, deflecting their fire without sustaining any injury, showing he had considerable skill in the Shien variant of Form V.

Tremendously powerful in the Force, Yoda also exceptionally skilled in applying the Light Side in combat. He was highly proficient in Force Deflection and Absorption and was able to absorb Force Lightning attack from the considerably skilled and powerful Dooku with his bare hands and deflect said attack with ease. He was even able to ultimately fully absorb and deflect Sidious's Force Lightning, although not without considerable effort and completely. Yoda displayed extraordinary telekenetic prowess on several occasions. Using telekinesis, he could effortlessly toy with the likes of Asaji Ventress, disarming her of her lightsabers with a single gesture and even halting her lightsaber strike aimed at King Katuko in mid air without any effort and swiftly sending her flying.

Yoda was also shown to be considerably better in telekinesis than the likes of Dooku, as he effortlessly deflected all of Dooku's telekinetic assault. He was even powerful enough to keep levitating Anakin while simultaneously using his lightsaber to ground Sidious's Force Lightning in the illusion Sidious conjured and was able to cast a Force Push strong enough to send Sidious flying through the air and later stop a Senate Hoverpod hurled at him by Sidious in mid-air and throw it back at the dark lord.

In addition to Yoda's exemplary proficiency in the combative aspects of the Force, Yoda's incredibly strong connection to the Force coupled with centuries worth of study in the Force also allowed Yoda to gain many powerful supplementary abilities. He was able to see the future with great precision rivaling even Darth Sidious's as well as actively experience Force Visions without being limited to spontaneous visions. His visions led him to foresee the fall of the Jedi and even his own death. Yoda was also capable of reading the history of a person's soul, and could thus uncover the force alignment of a Force User even if said user powerfully protected him or herself from detection with a single touch, evidenced when Yoda deduced Quinlan fell to the Dark Side whereas most Jedi could not.

Although only shown once as Yoda usually lets his soldiers handle the piloting, Yoda was shown to surprisingly be a quite proficient pilot, as he was able to handle Anakin's personal interceptor by himself and he was not shown to have any problem in landing the ship and did not cause any damage to the Interceptor when he used it to go on a journey to learn Immortality.

Quotes

Yes yes a flaw more and more common among Jedi to sure of themselves they even the older more experienced ones.
~ Yoda after Obi mentions that Anakin becoming more arrogant.

Trivia

  • Yoda returns in the Angry Birds Star Wars franchise, where he is portrayed by an unknown bird. He retains his lightsaber and force skills from before. He is only playable in the prequel game, being a background element in the game centering on the original trilogy. In the prequel game, he can bounce around, spinning his lightsaber and damaging objects. He is introduced in stage 11 on the bird side of the first chapter, the Naboo Invasion, and he appears in every boss fight except the boss stage of Rise of the Clones.
    • The Droideka from the prequel game possesses a similar ability, though he does not deal as much damage, and he self-destructs afterward and is only seen in bonus areas.
