Kill Count: Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi


It’s time to complete your training! Here is the conclusion to the kill counts of the Original Star Wars Trilogy…

  • Luke kills the Rancor monster with the door to its cage.
  • Lando kills a man by holding onto him when he goes overboard.
  • Han inadvertently kills* Boba Fett by hitting his jet pack causing him to get eaten.
  • Leia strangles Jabba to death.
  • Luke kills 21 people during the Sail Barge incident over the Sarlacc Pit.
  • Chewbacca kills a scout trooper on a speeder.
  • Luke kills a scout trooper by throwing him off a speeder at full speed.
  • Luke shoots down a scout trooper on a speeder.
  • Luke kills a scout trooper by hitting the nose of his speeder with his lightsaber.
  • Han kills an imperial officer by throwing his explosive charges at him.
  • Leia shoots a AT-ST operator.
  • Han kills 3 Stormtrooper as he protects the terminal.
  • Lando shoots down 3 TIE Fighters over the Death Star 2.
  • Chewie kills an AT-ST gunner by throwing him off the vehicle.
  • Chewie kills 6 Stormtroopers while shooting from the AT-ST he stole.
  • Leia shoots 2 Stormtroopers right after getting shot in the arm.
  • Darth Vader picks up the Emperor, while taking the full power of his force lightning, and throws him over the railing to certain death.
  • The Emperor, by shocking Darth Vader practically into oblivion, forces his death (My own theory is that the Emperor was keeping Vader alive partly through the Force and when the Emperor died it ceased).
  • Lando destroys the Death Star 2.
