Is c-3p0 a hero?

edit: going to go for a weekly schedule now.

new posts drop on thursday.

Is c-3p0 a hero?

I'm going to say yes

for starters an opener.




This theme song says it all.

You have a protocol droid, completely unsuited for combat and exploration put into a situation that are way outside his experience.

In a culture where droids are not even considered people, but devices that are beyond expendable.

He himself is a pacifist and incredibly fragile.

Yet he manages to sacrifice and help out time and time again.

Using his incredible skills (social skills) he manages to move about with his astromech buddy undetected on the death star.

Not only that, but his bluff check got any storm troopers out of the way so r2 could stop the trash compactor.

He also offers to sacrifice his circuitry when r2 was damaged during the death star run.

He deserved to be on the podium.


He also showed progression:
in a new hope he said he was no good at telling stories.
but by return of the jedi, his storytelling was crucial in getting "native guides" on the moon on endor to help on the assault on the shield building.

it's because he was finally able to do what he was meant to do...translation. :)

Ultimately, like all of us, he worked with what he had.
It wasn't much, but his actions saved the star wars universe.

How could that not be considered heroic?
