Mandalorian warriors, soldiers of the Republic: these are the best clone troopers from the Clone Wars, ranked. Sorry, no Republic Commandos!
7: Thorn: A shocktrooper commander who fought and died on the planet Scipio, Thorn is a force to reckoned with. When the Seperatists launched an invasion, Thorn’s battalion fought to the last man. Thorn was the last one standing, using his blaster carbine at close-quarters like a club, but was surrounded and gunned down by a squad of B2s. “For the Republic!”- his last words.
6: Gregor: Gregor was a clone commando who crashed on a remote planet called Abafar not long after the Battle of Geonosis, and suffered from amnesia. He remained there, unaware that he was a clone, until a Republic ship crashed on the planet. He sacrificed himself for the safety of the envoy. We assumed he died there…until he showed up in Star Wars Rebels!
5: Ninety-Nine: CT-99 is more than just a defect. He supplied the 501st Legion with weapons at the Battle of Kamino, where he lost his life. Ninety-Nine proves that you don’t have to be perfect to be a hero. Echo even gave him a clone army graduation medal. “He really was one of us”- Rex.
4: Fives: CT-5555 “Fives” was best known for uncovering the problem of a fellow trooper’s (Tup’s) malfunctioning biochip that caused Tup to execute a jedi long before Order 66. Besides that, Fives also fought on Umbara next to Rex and the 501sts and helped in the execution of Pong Krell, a jedi turned to the dark side. He and Echo were promoted to ARC after the battle of Kamino, another battle where Fives was a major player.
3: Wolffe: the commander of Wolfpack, a famous division of the 104th battalion, Commander Wolffe served under Jedi General Plo Koon. From Kavado to the Malevolence, Wolffe has seen it all. He lost his right eye to Asajj Ventress’s lightsaber on Kholm. (He later installed a cybernetic implant.) Personally, every time he takes off his helmet, I’m surprised at how young he is.
2: Cody: A seasoned veteran affiliated with the 7th Sky Corps and the 212th Attack Battalion, Clone Commander Cody is Obi-Wan Kenobi’s most trusted ally. Even after having served under him for years, (“Come on, general, have I ever let you down?”), Cody mercilessly executes Order 66, attempting to kill Obi-Wan with an AT-TE walker’s laser cannon.
1: Rex: When someone says “clone trooper,” Rex is probably the first to come to mind. Serving under both Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano, he commanded the feared 501st Legion, and led the attack on the Jedi Temple next to Darth Vader. Rex fought in the battles of Bothawui, Felucia, Saleucami, Umbara and Kamino, just to name a few, and showed up in Star Wars Rebels.
What did you think? Did I miss anyone? Tell me in the comments. Until next time, “Vode An!”
