Complete Angry Birds Star Wars 2 Characters Guide – All Characters & Powers

With the release of Angry Birds Star Wars II comes incredible responsibility… To remember all of the characters, that is.

We put names to faces, explain their abilities, and hopefully answer a few questions along the way. Be sure to use the quick links below to jump between the Bird Side and the Pork Side.

Pork Side

Darth Sidious

Darth SidiousForce Lightning

Darth Sidious, aka Emperor Palpatine, can conjure and direct lightning. It is particularly effective against metallic objects, such as chains. It has little effect on wood, however.

Character Video
Jango Fett

Jango FettSingle Missile

Jango Fett features a single missile that can be aimed wherever the user pleases. Be aware that both Jango and the missile are metallic, and thus heavily effected by magnets.

Character Video

Character Video
Zam Wesell <strong></strong>

Zam Wesell Rope Swing

Character Video
General Grievous <strong>(*)</strong>

General Grievous (*)Quadruple Lightsaber!

Quite possibly the most powerful straight-attack character in the game, General Grievous features an unprecedented quadruple lightsaber attack! No blocks stand in the way of this four-pronged fury.

Character Video
Anakin, Episode III (Sith Apprentice) <strong>(*)</strong>

Anakin, Episode III (Sith Apprentice) (*)Radial Force Push

The Force is strong with Anakin as he falls to the Pork Side. His ability pulls nearby objects closer temporarily before launching them with great power in all directions.

Character Video
Darth Vader <strong>(*)</strong>

Darth Vader (*)Radial Force Push

This is CNN. Oh wait, wrong voiceover line. Anyways, to avoid any spoilers, Darth Vader has an ability that bears an uncanny resemblance to that of Anakin. We can just leave it at that, shall we?

Character Video
Boba Fett

Boba FettDouble Missile

Perhaps the most beloved member of the Pork Side, Boba Fett features a double missile attack. Be aware that neither missile actually travels at the user-determined location. Rather, they travel approximately 10-15 degrees above and below that line.

Character Video
Biker Scout <strong>(*)</strong>

Biker Scout (*)Speeder Bike

The Biker Scout behaves similarly to Anakin with his Podracer. The Scout will follow behind the Speeder Bike, which can be redirected toward any other location on-screen. The Scout will tail behind, knocking down structures as he goes.

Character Video
TIE Fighter Pilot <strong>(*)</strong>

TIE Fighter Pilot (*)Blaster, Two Double-Shots

Character Video
Stormtrooper <strong>(*)</strong>

Stormtrooper (*)Blaster, Five Scattered Shots

The Stormtrooper is the typical bad guy minion who is absolutely incapable of hitting anything it shoots at. A Stormtrooper can five shots, but the shots are pretty scattered. Nonetheless, this can be useful if aiming for five different targets, I suppose.

Character Video
Red Battle Droid <strong>(*)</strong>

Red Battle Droid (*)Blaster, Three Single-Shots

Similar to its non-red equivalent, the Red Battle Droid fires three quick shots with its laser blaster, directed toward wherever the user aims.

Character Video
Hologram Darth Sidious <strong>(*)</strong>

Hologram Darth Sidious (*)Invisibility + Force Lightning

Character Video
Shadowtrooper <strong>(*)</strong>

Shadowtrooper (*)Invisibility + Blaster, Five Scattered Shots

The Shadowtrooper is a tweak of the Stormtrooper, as so fires five scattered shots. However, the Shadowtrooper can pass through objects, just like Hologram Darth Sidious. Note that the hologram disappears after the normal ability is activated.

Character Video
Shocktrooper <strong>(T)</strong>

Shocktrooper (T)Blaster, Two Triple-Shots

The Red Clone Trooper, aka Shocktrooper, wields a blaster capable of two shots of three blasts each.

Character Video
Royal Guard <strong>(T)</strong>

Royal Guard (T)Spear

The Royal Guard carries a spear that allows him to grab onto a single item. The Guard will pull the item and hold on for dear life.

Character Video
Tusken Raider <strong>(T)</strong>

Tusken Raider (T)Single Sniper Shot

The Tusken Raider is a classic baddy and an extraordinarily good shot. He takes a single shot anywhere on screen, sniping that item despite any blocks between the character and the target.

@mvnla2
Thanks, I’ve identified the characters by doing just that, hadn’t noticed whether or not the new characters are listed under rebels achievements or not though. That said, I dont know if say ‘chopper is reward level br26, br28 or br29, etc etc and as I’ve not yet unlocked these levels I’ve no way of knowing, hence my asking if anyone can help match the characters listed to the levels listed. ;)

It might be a good idea to use silver c3p0 on levels with normal golden c3p0. You know these levels a bit better
