Star Wars: Ahsoka Tano’s Best Quotes From Star Wars Television

Star Wars™ is full of inspiring characters — and the plucky Togruta™ Ahsoka Tano™ might be one of the most beloved and inspirational beings in a galaxy far, far away. We first meet her when she’s a youngling. We watch her grow up, find herself, and create her own path. Then we see her become a mentor to teens who are just as intrepid and impulsive as she once was.

We can track Ahsoka Tano’s growth through many different aspects: her costumes, the way she carries herself, even her fighting style. But today we’re focusing on her words. Below, explore quotes that illustrate Ahsoka Tano’s journey from a hot-headed Padawan™ to a wise Force wielder.


“How am I supposed to learn if you won’t let me share the risk?”

The Clone Wars™

Like her master Anakin Skywalker™, Ahsoka Tano tends to get into loads of trouble. She’s brave, bordering on reckless. The Jedi™ recognize this. And as older brother figures, both Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi™ try to protect Ahsoka. While their intentions are good, their coddling frustrates the young Padawan. Eventually she confronts her master and asks to be treated more equally so that she can actually improve as a warrior.


“You’ll find I have many qualities for you to dislike.”

The Clone Wars

During her duel with Darth Maul™ on Mandalore™, Ahsoka Tano’s confidence shines through. The former Sith™ taunts her and ridicules her attitude. Ahsoka, secure in herself, bites back by telling Maul that there’s plenty to dislike. She’s not looking for his approval. Really, she’s not looking for anyone’s. Because at this point in her life she knows exactly who she is — and what she fights for.


“They may be willing to die, but I am not going to be the one who kills them.”

The Clone Wars

In The Clone Wars season 7, Ahsoka Tano knows how to balance her rage and peace. Still a skilled warrior and powerful Force wielder, she also has the wisdom to avoid conflict. Plus, after leaving the Jedi order, she has the emotional maturity to recognize when feelings matter. To Ahsoka, emotions help instead of hinder. Thus when all the Jedi are cutting down their clones during Order 66, Ahsoka tells Captain Rex™ that she refuses to hurt the men who have fought and died for her.


“There’s always a bit of truth in legends.”

Rebels™

A lot has changed in the galaxy by the time of Star Wars: Rebels. The Jedi are mostly a myth. Yet their stories are whispered to those who still dare to hope. Ahsoka Tano’s appearance as Fulcrum™, then, inspires a group of misfit rebels who need a bit more hope in their lives. Ahsoka’s insistence that there’s truth in legends means there’s also a reason to believe in a better future — something that can also seem like a fantasy when the galaxy is full of darkness.


“I am no Jedi.”

Rebels

This is perhaps Ahsoka Tano’s most famous quote. Her words here showcase her ultimate character growth. Where once she placed her entire identity into the way of the Jedi Order, she’s now come to reconcile which parts of her deviate from that path. She can share the Jedi’s compassion while also allowing anger and revenge into her heart — something decidedly not Jedi.


“I won’t leave you. Not this time.”

Rebels

Just because Ahsoka has abandoned the Jedi Order doesn’t mean she’s left everyone behind. In The Clone Wars, Ahsoka leaves so that she can find herself. However, she also leaves Anakin, who is suffering under the same pressure and uncertainty she faced as an apprentice. So in Rebels, Ahsoka has a chance to make things right. She refuses to leave Anakin, no matter how twisted he has become as Darth Vader™.


“I like firsts. Good or bad, they’re always memorable.”

The Mandalorian™

Although she is an adult now, Ahsoka’s playful side is still very present. Thus she reacts to The Mandalorian’s™ concern about Grogu™ with a small joke. This way she’s slyly easing Mando’s tension. Keeping things light, she reminds the mercenary that change is good and new experiences are crucial. So it’s playful as previously stated, but also a hint at Ahsoka’s own maturity because she can guide another being through a tough situation.


“Sometimes the student guides the master.”

The Book of Boba Fett™

This quote combines the best of Ahsoka Tano’s worlds. Here, with these words, brash Padawan meets astute teacher. Ahsoka gets to claim that students are right — likely an affirmation she always wanted as a student. But she additionally gets to give this advice to Din Djarin™. Thus the student has become a master, dishing out her own wisdom to a master who has his own student.
