Boba Fett is a major antagonist in the Star Wars franchise. He served as the secondary antagonist of The Empire Strikes Back and a minor antagonist in Return of the Jedi. As a boy, he was also a minor antagonist in Attack of the Clones, the second film of the prequel trilogy. He was also a recurring antagonist in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series and a supporting protagonist in Season 2 of the Disney+ television series The Mandalorian. He also made a cameo appearance in both the special edition release of A New Hope and Season 1 of the Disney+ television series The Mandalorian.

Originally codenamed Alpha, he is a clone of Jango Fett specifically made to be raised as Jango's own son. As a result, he remains heavily unaltered in contrast to the Clone Troopers and instead retains Jango's original genetic DNA. Ever since the death of his father, Boba Fett continued on his legacy as a bounty hunter, working alongside various bounty hunters, as well taking on other bounties made available to him. By the time of the Galactic Civil War, Boba Fett became one of the galaxy's most infamous bounty hunters across the outer region.


In his youth, Boba held his father in high esteem despite being an almost moral bounty hunter and did not hesitate to attempt to take down Obi-Wan in defense of his father. When Jango was killed by Windu, Boba vowed revenge on the Jedi Master for justice, going so far as to ally himself with other unscrupulous bounty hunters. His desire for revenge, however, did not cause him to become as despicable as his partners, refusing to kill hostages to the point that Aurra Sing did so herself. After his capture following Hondo Ohnaka's advice to act with dignity as Jango would have done, Boba admitted that he had done wrong but still vowed never to forgive Windu for what he had done to his father.

Boba's incarceration had the effect of toughening him up further, making him more aggressive and ready to fight adults and completely serious bounty hunter missions for nothing but money. He also didn't like not being respected for his status as a minor, like Asajj Ventress during the collaboration where the former Sith assassin ended up doubling him.

As an adult, Boba had acquired a reputation as a ruthless bounty hunter that eclipsed that of his father. He was much quieter than his younger and less emotional counterpart, speaking very little and just to get right to the point. His motivation remained mostly bounty, refusing to let Han Solo die so he could bring him to Jabba to earn the money on his head. Despite his ruthless nature and experiences with the Jedi, he underestimated his enemies too much, having been beaten by Luke Skywalker and Solo quite easily and ending up in the Sarlacc.

Many years after escaping from the Sarlacc and losing his armor, Boba had mellowed considerably, no longer being as heartless and cold as during the Imperial Age and had apparently given up on being a bounty hunter. His desire to get his armor back was mostly motivated by the desire to uphold his father's legacy, which he continued to hold in high esteem throughout time, which can also be seen when he got angry over Bo-Katan's claim that Jango was only his genetic donor. He was even willing to compromise with Din Djarrin to get his armor back in exchange for what he would undertake to ensure Grogu's safety, showing that Boba has a certain sense of honor.

Boba doesn't have much respect for the Mandalorians despite their status as formidable warriors. After Grogu's rescue, Boba decided to take control of Jabba's palace, showing much greater ambition than during the Republic and The Empire.

Relationship with the Mandalorians

Boba Fett's relationship with the Mandalorians used to remain an ongoing, unsolved topic amongst the Star Wars community. Though the creational concept of the Mandalorians were based on Boba Fett and were popularized by the character, Boba Fett himself was believed to not be a true Mandalorian in the Disney canon. Even before George Lucas sold the Star Wars franchise to Disney, he always believed that Boba and his father, Jango Fett, were not true Mandalorians.

While Jango Fett was established to be a man that stole Mandalorian armor, Boba Fett's relation to the Mandalorians remained vague. It is unclear how he acquired the Mandalorian armor. It could be that the armor he wears is a heavily modified version of Jango Fett's, though the only issue with this is that the armor possesses the Mandalorian insignia on the left shoulder pad. It should be noted, however that this was back when Boba Fett was the only known character that possessed this armor and the Mandalorians were not fully established yet. It's also possible that Boba Fett may have stolen the armor from a Mandalorian at one point. Before Star Wars: The Clone Wars was cancelled, it was revealed that Boba Fett would have don his iconic green armor, as shown in a deleted scene with Cad Bane (this scene also revealed how Boba Fett would have gotten the dent on his helmet).

In the Legends continuity, Jango Fett was fully established as being a true Mandalorian that fought alongside a group against Tor Vizsla's Death Watch. Due to being an exact clone of him, Boba Fett can be considered to be a Mandalorian himself and because of this, Boba Fett became the leader of the Mandalorian Protectors, following the death of Fenn Shysa. It should be noted that Mandalorians were determined based on their culture and bond, not just blood relation alone, however.

In The Mandalorian, Jango Fett was officially established to be a Mandalorian foundling that took part in the Mandalorian Civil War. Given that Boba Fett follows the traditions and teachings passed down from his father, it is likely that he too would be considered a Mandalorian by extent, though in spite of this, Boba Fett doesn't acknowledge himself to be a Mandalorian. It is also revealed that the armor that Boba Fett wore is indeed a modified version of Jango Fett's original armor.


I always get my man.
~ Boba Fett
Don't get in my way.
~ Boba Fett.
I'm here for the armor. (Mando: If you want my armor, you’ll have to peel it off my dead body.) I don’t want your armor. I want my armor that you got from Cobb Vanth back on Tatooine. It belongs to me.
~ Boba want to get his armor back.
Mando: Did you take the Creed?
Boba: I give my allegiance to no one.
Mando: The beskar belongs to the Mandalorians. It was looted from us during the Purge.
Boba: The armor was my father’s. Now it’s mine.
~ Boba arguing with Mando on who owns the armor.
They’re back. (Fennec: Who?) The Empire. They're back.
~ Boba spots Moff Gideon's Imperial cruiser.
I want you to take a look at something. My chain code has been encoded in this armor for 25 years. You see, this is me. Boba Fett. This is my father, Jango Fett. (Mando: Your father was a foundling.) Yes. He even fought in the Mandalorian Civil Wars. (Mando: Then that armor belongs to you.) I appreciate its return. (Mando: Then our deal is complete.) Not quite. (Mando: How so?) We agreed in exchange for the return of my armor, we will ensure the safety of the Child. (Mando: The Child’s gone.) Until he is returned to you safely, we are in your debt.
~ Boba promises Mando that he and Fennec will help him save Grogu for returning his long lost armor to him.
Bo-Katan: You are not a Mandalorian.
Boba: Never said I was.
Koska: I didn’t know sidekicks were allowed to talk.
Boba: Well, if that isn’t the Quacta calling the Stifling slimy. Easy there, little one.
~ Boba to Bo-Katan Kryze and Koska Reeves
Boba: You gotta be kidding me. Mandalore? The Empire turned that planet to glass.
Bo-Katan: You are a disgrace to your armor.
Boba: This armor belonged to my father.
Bo-Katan: Don’t you mean your donor?
Boba: Careful, princess.
Bo-Katan: You are a clone. I’ve heard your voice thousands of times.
Boba: Mine might be the last one you hear.
~ Boba having a quarrel with Bo-Katan.


  • The character was reportedly modeled after Clint Eastwood's portrayal of the Man with No Name in A Fistful of Dollars.
  • Episode III concept art shows that Boba was supposed to appear, with his armor, so he can assassinate Mace Windu. This was cut out since Boba was thought to be "too young".
  • Reasons for Fett's popularity is interpreted as that he is a masculine character, being a rifle-armed bounty hunter donning a mask and suit, and that he joined the heroes in demanding Darth Vader to spare Han's life (for in his case, Han is no good to him dead).
  • Boba Fett would've been a main cast character for the planned live-action show, Star Wars: Underground, with Daniel Logan portraying him. But Disney put these plans on an indefinite delay.
  • Although he is also a clone, Boba does not consider the Clone Troopers as his brothers.
  • Similarly to his father Jango Fett, Darth Vader, General Grievous, and the Stormtroopers, he is a Jedi hunter.
  • Though he survived the Sarlacc in the expanded universe, it's been stated that the expanded universe is no longer canon, however, Boba Fett surviving the Sarlacc is still hinted to have happened.
    • In the fifth episode of the first season of the Star Wars spin-off show, The Mandalorian, someone is seen approaching the lifeless body of the assassin, Fennec Shand. It is implied that this is indeed Boba Fett and it could be likely that he will appear later in the show as a major character.
      • The mysterious figure was later confirmed to be Boba Fett in season two with him becoming a supporting protagonist in the later half of the season alongside Shand.
  • Boba Fett made his first appearance on television November 17, 1978, animated by Nelvana Studios for The Star Wars Holiday Special as a mysterious figure who betrays Luke Skywalker after saving him, Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2 from a giant monster, and curing Luke Skywalker and Han Solo from the mysterious sleeping virus, only to be revealed as a bounty hunter working for Darth Vader.
  • It is discretely implied in The Empire Strikes Back that Boba Fett was the one who killed Owen and Beru. However, in the comics, it was confirmed that stormtroopers on the orders of Darth Vader had killed Owen and Beru, as he had blamed the two for his mother's death.
