38. Yoda’s Species Is Never Mentioned In Any Of The Movies

While Yoda is one of the most well-known Star Wars characters ever introduced, we don’t really know what the hell he is. He’s been called a muppet, most commonly, but there really isn’t a correct thing to call everyone’s favorite green Jedi.

Not once throughout the entire Star Wars saga is Yoda’s species once mentioned. This probably stems back to the fact that it really doesn’t matter what Yoda is, because he’s a badass no matter what.

It’s not something we’re transfixed on, but Yoda’s species not being mentioned once in the entire run of the franchise is more than just notable. It’s a bit of an oversight, but then again it’s a mundane detail that doesn’t add or take away from our enjoyment of the character.
