13 Severed Hands

I (Qui) just learned this random fact. In all 6 Star Wars movies, 13 hands/arms were chopped or pulled off!!!!

No hands were chopped off. I'm sorry.
Obi-Wan cuts off a random persons hand
Anakin gets his hand cut off by Dooku.
Dooku gets BOTH of his hands cut off!
General Grievous gets two of his hands cut off!
Mace gets his arm cut off by Anakin
Obi-Wan cuts off Anakins hand! (Thats twice for Anakin now)
Threepio gets his arm pulled off!
Obi cuts off someone elses arm in a bar.
The snow beast gets his arm chopped off by Luke.
And of course, Luke gets his hand cut off by his Father. (Duh)
And finally, Luke gets his revenge by chopping off Darth Vaders hand only to find that both of them have a robotic hand. Like father like son!

And if you combine the books and the comics and the movies, Vader/Anakin gets his hand chopped off NO LESS THAN 5 TIMES!!!

Its making me realize how....well...violent Star Wars is. At least its not gory, like at least they don't show it all. (THANK GOD because i CANNOT AND REPEAT CANNOT handle goryness.)

Have a nice day! And tomorrow, Padme post!! :DDDD



  1. Padmé post! Yay!!!!................

    This PROVES that I don't know everything about SW! I didn't know this.


  2. Ha! Pretty morbid actually.

  3. That's slightly disturbing, but I didn't realize how gory it is either... You're right, at least they don't show it, I don't think I could handle it.

  4. I actually think I could handle it. Eh, actually, no. I take that back. I don't think I could either. LOL


  5. Cutting off hands is a Jedi tradition, apparently.

  6. I did notice that. I should write a real post about that and the possible reasons why! It would probably turn into a conspiracy theory.


  7. Amaranthine: Cutting of hands actually is the preferred method of stopping your enemies- the other immediate option is their heads, an action strongly discouraged by the Jedi Council. :) Somewhere on Wookiepdeia there's an article about the technique, in various forms of lightsaber combat... just in case you want to know more.


No cursing, no bullying, and no trolling~ Please and thank you.
