Every Limb Lost in The Star Wars Films

Jordin Agemy, Feature Reporter

Throughout the history of Star Wars, many limbs have been detached by the lightsaber. Everyone from Jedi to the Sith have encountered, or know of, one person with at least one lost limb.Here is a list of all limbs lost throughout the films in chronological order:
1:Darth Maul
After Qui-Gon Jinn dies at the hands of Darth Maul, Obi-Wan Kenobi continues the duel. Obi-Wan manages to turn the fight around, take Maul by surprise, and chops him in two near the waist.
2: Zam Wesell
After the Clawdite shape-shifter Zam Wesell makes an attempt on Padmé Amidala’s life, Obi-Wan and Anakin Skywalker chase her through Coruscant. They locate her when she ducks into a bar, and Obi-Wan uses his lightsaber to remove her right forearm before she shoots him.
3: Acklay
One of the creatures in the arena during the Battle of Geonosis was the formidable acklay. It tried to take down Obi-Wan, but he escaped its pincers by slicing off two of the acklay’s front legs with his lightsaber.
4: Anakin Skywalker
When Anakin recovers from being hit with Force lightning from Count Dooku, he leaps back into battle only to lose more than half of his right arm to Dooku’s blade.
5: Count Dooku
General Grievous is quite the force to be reckoned with given his multiple appendages. Still, Obi-Wan sliced off two of his robotic hands in battle.
6: Mace Windu
When Mace discovers that Palpatine is the Sith they’ve been looking for, he decides to handle things himself rather than going through appropriate channels. Anakin stops Mace from killing Palpatine by removing Mace’s right hand from the rest of his body.
7: Anakin Skywalker
We all know how Revenge of the Sith ends, and it isn’t pretty. Anakin comes to hate Obi-Wan, and they engage in a brutal battle on Mustafar. Obi-Wan cuts off Anakin’s left arm and both legs in one swipe.
The Jundland Wastes are not to be traveled lightly, as C-3PO learned. He loses an arm to a Tusken Raider while trying to find R2-D2.
9: Ponda Baba
When Doctor Evazan and Ponda Baba give Luke a rough time in the Mos Eisley cantina, Obi-Wan steps in to help. He helps by cutting off Ponda Baba’s right arm.
10: Wampa
Wampas are no match for the Force. Luke summons the Force to retrieve his lightsaber, cuts himself down, and debilitates the wampa by, you guessed it, removing its right arm.
11: C-3PO
Threepio really does not have good luck. Or any luck. This time around he puts his nose where it doesn’t belong while on Bespin, and Ugnaughts remove his limbs and later completely disassemble him.
12: Luke Skywalker
When Luke encounters Darth Vader in Cloud City, he is in no way prepared for the duel. Luke does manage to put up a fight, but Vader has no trouble chopping off Luke’s right hand.
13: Darth Vader
The next time Luke stands off against Vader, he’s more prepared. He’s wiser and more skilled. Before it’s all over, he pulls a reverse and cuts off Vader’s right hand.
