Popular turn-based strategy RPG from EA Capital Games Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes launched in 2015. Since then, it has brought myriad characters (known to gamers as “toons”) from the star wars universe to mobile gaming platforms everywhere. This is a lexicon-spanning collection, including characters from all canon movies, live streaming shows, and video games. It also extends to the non-canon “expanded universe”, now officially known as Legends (Boba Fett in particular made a great showing there), including characters from old novels and video games.
There are, however, a few glaring omissions that fans have been curious about. In a game that includes squads of Jawas, Ewoks, and Tusken Raiders, as well as various background characters (such as the Coruscant Underworld Police), the lack of some other more well-known characters seems odd. Capital Games is constantly expanding the roster, however, time will tell if the following toons will ever see the light of day.
ten Jar-Jar Binks: Potential for Silly and Unique Powers
Widely and savagely derided by fans since 1999, the clumsy Gungan is just about the only main character from the prequel trilogy not to appear in the game. Perhaps Capital Games wants to avoid backlash by adding the character (he pretty much created the Empire after all).
However, his antics could provide some interesting powers, if not absolute comic relief. It might even be fun to see an entire team of Gungans added to the roster, with Boss Nass, Captain Tarpals, and a few units of Gungan soldiers rounding out the team.
9 Jabba The Hutt: A Unique Potential Villain
Several characters from Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi appear in the game: Admiral Ackbar, a Gamorrean Guard, the Emperor’s Royal Guard, a full squad of Ewoks, and even Jedi Knight Luke in his fashionable black tunic and single black-gloved hand.
Guilds can even participate in two separate raids against the mighty Rancor. where’s everyone’s favorite space slug, then? The development team may think players would have a hard time accepting Jabba as an effective fighter, but the game features Ugnaughts, Ewoks, and Jawas. There’s no reason why it can’t happen.
8 Supreme Leader Snoke: Force Lightning and Hux Humiliation
teased in Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens as the Big Bad of the sequel trilogy, Supreme Leader Snoke was revealed to be an experimental clone created by Palpatine. Fans learned very little about the character before his abrupt demise in Star Wars: Episode VIII: The Last Jedibut he was known to be a powerful Force user and leader of the First Order (not to mention Kylo Ren’s mentor).
While the First Order is already well represented in the game, Snoke’s exclusion is a missed opportunity for another powerful dark side character.
7 Hondo Ohnaka: pirate powers and negotiation
Fan-favorite Hondo Ohnaka is a Weequay pirate whose misadventures span both Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels. His lack of galaxy of heroes may be because Capital Games doesn’t know where to put it, because there is no Pirate tag.
There is a Scoundrel beacon, however, and Hondo would definitely fit in there. While fans are clamoring for Hondo to make a live appearance, players are yearning for him to be added to the roster. He could definitely have synergy with Team Phoenix, or even the Galactic Republic. Less appreciated star wars the characters also deserve recognition.
6 Jedi of the High Republic: A New Era of Power Possibilities
The High Republic era is fairly new to the series’ canon, only appearing in the novels and comics so far. Its first phase recently came to a stunning conclusion, the next live action show The Acolyte on Disney+ apparently occurs at the end of this period, and the next release of Quantic Dreams Star Wars: Eclipse should fill even more of the time. While the High Republic is full of amazing characters, it would be fantastic to see a few High Republic Jedi added to the game: namely Avar Kriss, Stellan Gios, and Elzar Mann. They are Jedi at their best, and they would be a welcome addition.
Including these characters would also open up the possibility of including villains like the Nihil and the Drengir, though fans aren’t usually too fond of dark side plant monsters.
5 Saw Gerrera: an experience that spans the entire saga
Saw Gerrera appeared in several iterations of star wars traditions. The fierce but suspicious rebel fighter met his end in Rogue One: A Star Wars Storybut first appeared in The Clone Wars animated series, as well as in the EA game star wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
His absence in galaxy of heroes may be another example of placement issues. The main A thug The team is already in the game, so it might not make sense to include Saw without also including the rest of the partisans’ radical rebel cell. It can also be the version of Saw to include. The fact remains, though: the game features five different iterations of Chewbacca, and no saws.
4 Black Krrsantan: Powerful fists and arm-ripping strength
Former gladiator turned bounty hunter, Black Krrsantan went from comics to live-action in Boba Fett’s Book. It’s hard to believe this fierce furry fan favorite won’t eventually be added to the game, but at the time of writing, that has yet to happen.
The game already features several bounty hunters (including two versions of Boba Fett), but with five different Chewbaccas and Zaalbar (from Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic), there must be room for at least one more Wookie. Players would surely be thrilled to use Krrsantan’s electrified brass knuckles against their enemies.
3 Cal Kestis: All Powers of the Fallen Order
Cal Kestis is the protagonist of Electronic Arts’ Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The game sees Cal as both a padawan losing his master to Order 66 and a Jedi refugee in the era of the Galactic Empire. Cal is an extremely popular character among fans, and galaxy of heroes players have been calling for its introduction for a while now.
There is precedent here, as the game already features characters found in the star wars Games Knights of the Old Republic and its sequel. As of this writing, recent additions are from Fallen Order: Second sister and ninth sister, so Cal might not be far behind. However, these recent characters report to the mysterious Inquisitor, which may herald the coming of a different character instead.
2 Grand Inquisitor: Lightsaber Skills and Dark Force Powers
A native of Utapau, the character known only as the Grand Inquisitor appears in rebels and comics. He is the leader of the Inquisitorius, a group of Dark Side Force users created by Emperor Palpatine to hunt down any Jedi who managed to survive the Order 66 purge.
His eventual addition to the game seems imminent, given the recently created Inquisitorius beacon and the inclusion of two more Inquisitor toons. Fans surely won’t be satisfied until galaxy of heroes includes more spinning double-bladed lightsabers, which is more than understandable.
1 General Leia: powers from princess to politician
Perhaps the most stunning omission from the game is General Leia Organa-Solo. While the sequel trilogy era is heavily represented in the game, and although there are already two versions of Princess Leia available (she has appeared as a playable character in numerous titles over the years), the fans can never get enough of the rebel princess. -became leader of the Resistance.
This version of the character would be a perfect addition to the Galactic Legend collection, which already includes versions of Luke Skywalker, Palpatine, Rey, and Kylo Ren. Capital Games would be wise, however, not to include her in her flight through space like Mary Poppins as a powerhouse in her kit.
Star Wars: Galaxy Of Heroes is available now, for Android and iOS.
