‘Star Wars’ droid has killed over 50,000 characters – Inside the Magic
Chopper is a relatively modest astromech droid in the Star wars universe – fans first met him in the animated series Star Wars Rebels, in which the at times cranky droid loyally served the Phantom Ship crew, including fan favorite characters like Ghost Pilot Hera Syndulla (Vanessa Marshall), Jedi Kanan Jarrus (Freddie Prinze, Jr.) and Padawan Ezra Bridger (Taylor Gray).

Instead of seeing the elite team of Clone Troopers at the opening of the episode, we find ourselves on Ryoloth – the homeworld of the Twi’Lek species, including a young Hera Syndulla. Since The bad lot takes place almost three decades before Rebels, we see a very different version of Syndulla than we are used to, but his pragmatic and responsible attitude remains.

Ultimately, as formidable as Hera Syndulla is, Chopper is actually the character the Galactic Empire should fear. By a detailed assessment of the death toll of the little droid, it is responsible for the deaths of more than 50,000 characters in the Star wars franchise!

The assessment breaks down Chopper’s murderous tendencies as follows:
- In “The Machine in the Phantom”, Chopper detonates a TIE-Fighter, so that’s 1 kill.
- In the Season 1 premiere, he detonated three more TIE-Fighters, resulting in 4 kills in total.
- In Episode 4, Chopper attempted to assassinate Ezra, but he failed.
- In Episode 5, he detonated the leg of an AT-DP, which likely resulted in only non-fatal injuries.
- In Episode 11, he committed cold-blooded murder against another Astromech, then pushed his lifeless carcass down the sewers.
- In episode 13, he opened an airlock, causing a horrific death to 4 Stormtroopers in the void of space. So now that’s 8 kills in total.
- In the same episode, he also pushed a completely innocent Astromech out of the cargo hold, without any provocation. Probably leading him to wander aimlessly in the plains of Lothal until he ran out of power.
- In Episode 8 of Season 2, he turned gravity off and on again, causing three Imperials to fall. He also tried to kill Ezra, but was unsuccessful once again.
- In the same episode, he also sabotaged the Indictor, detonating it and dragging two Imperial cruisers with him.
The Indictor seemed about the same size as an Imperial Class I Star Destroyer, according to the Wiki, it has over 37,000 crew members and an additional 9,700 Stormtroopers. Which makes a total of just under 47,000 people.
- Add the crew of the two Imperial light cruisers, and I would say that’s at least 50,000 casualties.
- So that’s 50,008 killed in total.
- In Season 2 Episode 9, he suggested that they blew up a force-sensitive baby, but Zeb didn’t let him go all the way.
- In Season 2 Episode 16, Chopper murders another Astromech again, but at least this time he doesn’t desecrate his corpse.
- In Season 2 Episode 18, Chopper detached a cargo bay containing at least 7 Stormtroopers, leaving them stranded in space. Assuming they weren’t saved, that gives him a total of 50,015 dead.
- In the Season 3 premiere, Chopper took down a Tie-Fighter from the Mining Guild, giving him a total of 50,016 kills.
He also destroyed another droid.
- In episode 4 of season 3, he blows up Hera’s house, I guess he killed at least two dozen Stormtroopers, and maybe Twi’leks in the kitchen.

The official description of Chopper in the Star wars data bank bed :
Chopper was the Ghost’s resident droid, helping the crew with everything from ship maintenance to combat, though he didn’t always want to. After many years of repairs and repairs, Chopper had a worn and worn look that matched his sometimes cranky personality. Aesthetics aside, he was a staple of this small rebellious team and, ultimately, was loyal and heroic.
