Just 10 Ahsoka Tano Quotes To Get You Excited For ‘The Clone Wars’ Season 7
Even if you haven’t watched The Clone Wars, odds are you know who Ahsoka Tano is. Coming into the Star Wars universe in 2008 as Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan, she’s grown into one of the most well-developed characters in the franchise. She’s had some heartbreaking moments, especially near the end of Season 5, but she’s shared some pretty great quotes too. Whether hilarious or knowledgeable, here are some to get you excited for what Ahsoka has to say in Season 7.
1. Ahsoka learned a thing or two about bias
“I did realize something. The politics of this war, are not as black and white as I once thought they were.” — Season 3, Episode 10: “Heroes on Both Sides”
Before Ahsoka went with Padmé Raxus and met non-hostile Separatists, she had a pretty negative view of her adversaries. Padmé taught Ahsoka not to judge someone based on differing opinions. Here, she’s telling Anakin what she learned.
2. Ahsoka had some great leadership advice
“You don’t have to carry a sword to be powerful. Some leaders’ strength is inspiring greatness in others.” — Season 4, Episode 2: “Gungan Attack”
When his people of Mon Cala were under attack, Lee-Char almost couldn’t handle all the deaths and fighting. Ahsoka assured him that being a strong fighter isn’t all it took to inspire others.
3. Master Skywalker teaches some good lessons (just not all the time)
“Master Skywalker and I hold what we call aggressive negotiations all the time. It’s a shame you can’t hold more peaceful talks when you want.” — Season 3, Episode 10: “Heroes on Both Sides”
If you remember, “aggressive negotiations” were kinda Padmé and Anakin’s inside joke in Attack of the Clones. It’s obvious Anakin passed it onto his Padawan.
4. Strength lies inside
“You don’t have to look tough to be tough.” — Season 2 Episode 17: “Bounty Hunters”
Ahsoka was always the youngest on the battlefield and sometimes the smallest. If anyone knows what makes one tough, it’s her.
5. Anakin isn’t always the responsible one
Ahsoka: How come every time you fly, we crash?
Anakin: It’s not my fault. It’s the ship.
Ahsoka: He always blames the ship.
— Season 2, Episode 17: “Bounty Hunters”
The relationship between Ahsoka and Anakin definitely was more equivalent to pestering siblings than it should have been. But it gave us moments like these, so it’s all good.
6. Ahsoka was so grateful for her master’s teachings
“You already did everything you could. Everything you had to do. When I was out there, alone, all I had was your training. And the lessons you taught me, and because of you, I did survive. And not only that, I was able to lead others to survive as well.” — Season 3, Episode 22: “Wookiee Hunt”
After being captured by Trandoshans, she’s gone for a while with no communication or trace to Anakin. He thought she was dead, so you can imagine how sorry he was when she finally returned. But she gave him a heartfelt thank you instead.
7. Life is never boring for Ahsoka and Anakin
“Master, if you have taught me one thing, it’s that nothing is easy when you are around.” — The Clone Wars movie
Anakin was not fond of the idea of having a Padawan when Ahsoka showed up. But the two grew on each other fast, and in their first on-screen appearance with each other, he was already teaching Ahsoka that he’s a handful to work with, too.
8. Ahsoka: The originator of this fine line
“So, this is where the fun begins.” — The Clone Wars movie
There weren’t a lot of times in Revenge of the Sith where fun Anakin pops out, but he sure loved a good fight as a pilot. Turns out, his Padawan gave him that like years before.
9. Ahsoka knew when to walk away, even though it was tough
Ahsoka Tano: “I know you believe in me, Anakin, and I’m grateful for that. But this isn’t about you. I can’t stay here any longer, not now.”
Anakin Skywalker: “The Jedi Order is your life. You can’t just throw it away like this! Ahsoka, you are making a mistake.”
Ahsoka Tano: “Maybe, but I have to sort this out on my own, without the Council and without you.” — Season 5, Episode 20, “The Wrong Jedi”
Leaving the Jedi Order was one of the toughest decisions for Ahsoka to make. And Anakin didn’t make it easier on her. But it was the right thing to do when the Jedi Council betrayed her so much and it makes for one of the most heartwrenching scenes in all of The Clone Wars (so far).
10. Ahsoka had to deal with the horrifying truth of how her master turned out
Ahsoka Tano: “I was beginning to believe I knew who you were behind that mask, but it’s impossible. My master could never be as vile as you!”
Darth Vader: “Anakin Skywalker was weak. I destroyed him.”
Ahsoka: “Then I will avenge his death!”
Vader: “Revenge is not the Jedi way.”
Ahsoka Tano: “I am no Jedi.”— Star Wars Rebels, Season 2, Episode 20: “Twilight of the Apprentice Part 2”
Skipping ahead several years in the timeline, Ahsoka Tano is now Fulcrum, a Rebel Alliance operative, working with Ezra and Kanan and the rest of the Ghost crew. She encounters Anakin as Darth Vader here in one of the most epic battles in the franchise.
