Star Wars is known as one of the longest-running iconic franchises in history, for its universally recognizable dialogues and terms. Star Wars lines have become familiar in pop culture, with phrases like “I am your father” becoming inscribed to the franchise. These famous lines have become an integral part of the internet meme culture, creating a perfect blend of Star Wars and memes. Here we’ve come up with a list of the greatest Star Wars memes.

1. Owen Lars roasts Anakin

Owen Lars is a significant character in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, particularly for his perfect response to Obi-Wan’s statement that Luke must be trained. This moment has become a popular meme, with Owen delivering harsh roasts to other Star Wars characters. In this scene, he’s giving his step-brother, Anakin, a massive burn. Such a roast from Owen would have dangerous consequences, as we know about Anakin‘s volatility.

2. Palpatine the poet

In Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, Anakin is attending an opera with Chancellor Palpatine when Palpatine starts talking about Darth Plagueis the Wise, recounting his own experience. Palpatine’s enthusiastic storytelling has become legendary, mainly because it highlighted his identity as a Sith Lord. In this case, Palpatine’s story has been transformed into a poem, to pay a tribute to the Chancellor’s wonderful narrative.

3. Mando doesn’t enjoy Grogu’s jam session

The opening scene of The Mandalorian: Season 1, Episode 4 titled Sanctuary quickly became a meme sensation. It featured Grogu, constantly pushing buttons on Mando’s ship, irritating Mando. Edits of Grogu turning on different songs went viral, with Grogu urging to listen to Toto’s Africa became particularly popular. Even the actor who portrays Din Djarin, Pedro Pascal, reacted to this clip, stating that he would never turn off the classic song like his character did in the scene.

4. Anakin worries Padme over a joke

In Attack of the Clones, Anakin and Padme’s discussion about the Senate creates tension due to the audience’s knowledge of Anakin’s future, even though he assured her he was joking. This scene has since become a popular meme format, with this particular example filled with irony. In the meme, the dialogue is rewritten, and Padme is concerned over Anakin‘s choice of words.

5. Obi-Wan’s iconic call-and-response

In Revenge of the Sith, Obi-Wan surprises General Grievous on Utapau and uses his iconic line, “Hello there,” which was first spoken in A New Hope. Grievous responds with “General Kenobi,” creating a famous call-and-response moment. This scene has become a well-known meme format. In this particular meme, Obi-Wan completes the call-and-response with Grievous, but he adds a humorous twist by taking the help of some of C-3PO’s dialogue from The Force Awakens, where the droid believes he’s unrecognizable due to a new red arm.

6. Anakin has too much fun

The opening line of Anakin’s in Revenge of the Sith has become iconic among Star Wars fans. When Hayden Christensen, the actor who portrayed Anakin, mouthed these famous words at the Star Wars Celebration in 2022, the audience broke into thunderous applause. In this meme, a darker and more humorous twist is taken, suggesting that Anakin is a bit too enthusiastic about carrying out his first task as Lord Vader.

7. Anakin’s worst enemy, Sand

Anakin’s infamous line about disliking sand in the prequel Star Wars trilogy, where he compares it to Padme’s skin, has gathered a lifetime supply of memes about sand getting everywhere. In pop culture, sand has become Anakin’s greatest foe, second only to the concept of the high ground. In this meme, the humor is in imagining how Anakin might have reacted to seeing Rey bury his lightsaber in the sand at the end of the Star Wars saga, which surely gets sand inside his hilt.

8. Obi-Wan excels on the High Ground

The end of Anakin and Obi-Wan’s intense feud on Mustafar in Revenge of the Sith is remembered for Obi-Wan’s strategic use of the high ground to gain triumph. The concept of the high ground has since become iconic and rich meme material among Star Wars fans. In this specific meme, the roles of Obi-Wan and Anakin are swapped with those of Palpatine and Mace Windu, and the high ground replaces the Senate, adding a humorous twist to the scene.

9. Mace Windu will never declare Anakin the Rank of Master

Anakin’s frustration over not being granted the rank of Jedi Master in Revenge of the Sith by Mace Windu has been a meme since his memorable protest in the film. The idea that Anakin can’t seem to achieve the esteemed title of Jedi Master, no matter what he does, has been a recurring theme in Star Wars memes. In this particular meme, Mace Windu hilariously promotes everyone else just to prevent Anakin from achieving the same status as his partners.

10. The chicken nugget debate

Grogu, due to his adorableness, has been a meme sensation since his debut. Part of his character revolves around his love for chicken nuggets and chocolate milk, which he affectionately refers to as “chicky nuggies” and “choccy milk.” In this meme, he’s having a debate with Adam Driver, the actor who plays Kylo Ren, about these snack names. The Mandalorian: Season 3 finale finally allowed Grogu to enjoy chicken nuggets onscreen, fulfilling a long-awaited moment for fans.
