We rank the 50 most memorable Star Wars deaths ever

26 of 51

26. Commander Gree

When Did They Die: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

Who Were They: Commander of the clone army detachment under the control of Yoda during the Battle of Kashyyyk

How Did They Die: Decapitated by Yoda when he Jedi-sensed his imminent betrayal as part of Palpatine’s plot

We never see Gree’s face, or get a sense of his personality. Did he have family? Kids? Passions? Hobbies?

The answer to all these questions is, of course, no. Gree is a clone, and is just like all the rest. That’s really the beginning and end of it.

We do know that Gree’s a good enough clone – whether by design or experience – to have earned a position on Yoda’s personal staff. We also know that, after Palpatine sends out the order to kill all the Jedi, he blindly obeys. Or attempts to, anyways, before Yoda unleashed a bit of Force-induced lightsaber skills.

Star Wars The Black Series figures are the perfect addition to your desk.

All of which goes a long way to further dehumanizing the clones. We said before that their one distinction from the Droid Army was that they were still living, breathing creatures. Gree’s willingness to betray Yoda suggests, however, that they we never much more than the robots they were fighting against.
