Next up is Yoda, the Jedi Master of Jedi Masters, the wisest member of the Council and the most terrifying warrior in the Order. Yeah, this little guy packs one heck of a wallop. Don’t let his short stature and gentle spirit fool you.
The original trilogy paints Yoda as a swamp-dwelling sage who Forces X-Wings out of bogs and croaks out cryptic tidbits such as, “There is another,” and, more ominously, “You will be.” I’m beginning to suspect he enjoys keeping people guessing.
During the events of The Clone Wars, Yoda’s lessons begin immediately. In “Ambush,” he teaches the clones an invaluable lesson and, in doing so, secures a major win for the Republic. He’s a centuries-old voice of reason who knows a thing or two about when to act and when to let others learn. There’s plenty of this here and it’s always a delight to watch. He doesn’t have a prominent role by any means but he remains one of the best characters in the franchise.
So yes, while Yoda is often relegated to “background character” status, his importance is never questioned. And it likely never will be.
Yoda is another character who will never tire us.
