Jar Jar Binks as a Sith Lord

Jar Jar Binks, as the Sith Lord Darth Snoke

Jar Jar Binks was a Sith Lord who trained under Darth Bane and lived on Naboo. His bumbling gungan act was a ruse to get by unnoticed and his Sith name was Darth Snoke. Some of his fellow Gungans, however, saw him as a threat more from his dark side than from his clumsiness. After meeting Qui-Ga Jinn and Jek Tarrun during the Trade Federation's invasion of Naboo, he put more of his plan into motion. Obtaining the rank of senator and influencing the Senate. After Sidious was exposed and defeated, he revealed himself as a Sith Lord. He and Jek fought a duel in Padme's apartment building and he was arrested and taken back to Naboo to stand trial. He was then tried and executed by the Gungan High Council.


Early life

Jar Jar was born sometime on the planet, Naboo. He was raised in an underwater Gungan city until he was discovered at an early age by Darth Bane, the lord of the Sith who started the "Rule of two". Bane took Jar Jar under his wing, trained him in the ways of the Sith and renamed him Darth Snoke. Jar Jar believed there was more power and potential in himself than Bane had led him to believe, so he electrocuted his master while he was sleeping. Thus, Jar Jar claimed the title, lord of the Sith.

Invasion of Naboo

Upon returning home, Jar Jar came up with a brilliant plan: He would pose as a clumsy and non-threatening Gungan to gain the trust of others. Then, he would take over the Republic at the heart, by surprise. When the Trade Federation, under the command of Darth Sidious, invaded Naboo, Jar Jar saw opportunity. When Jedi Master Qui-Ga Jinn and her padawan, Jek Tarrun, landed on Naboo and met him, he chose to use their predicament to his advantage. He helped them get to the queen and followed them to Tatooine. Upon finding Anakin Skywalker, Jar Jar saw him as a threat, since he was believed to be the Chosen One. But then again, Anakin could prove a useful Sith if he followed the dark side. But only time would tell.

On Coruscant, after the Senate didn't really help after the Naboo invasion, Queen Naberrie chose to return home and resolve it herself. What no one realized was that Jar Jar had used the Force to influence her to do so. Upon returning to Naboo, Jar Jar influenced Boss Nass to put him in charge of the grand army of the gungans. Using martial arts to look clumsy, Jar Jar kept the act going. He was glad that Naboo obtained a peace relation with the gungans, for he could use it to get closer to his rival Sith Lord, Darth Sidious.

Prelude to the Clone Wars

Eventually, Jar Jar became Senator Mon Mothma's closest ally in the Senate. When many star system left the Republic for the Confederacy of Independant Systems (CIS), the Senate was debating on whether or not to create an army to defend themselves. When a bounty hunter tried to assassinate Padme, a now teenage Anakin Skywalker escorted her home and Jar Jar took her place in the Senate during her absence. After Jedi Master Jek Tarrun made a transmission to Coruscant about the Battle Droid factory he found on Geonosis, Jar Jar influenced the Senate to provided emergency power to Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. Secretly, Palpatine thanked Jar Jar for what he'd done and revealed his "Sithside" to him. This only gave Jar Jar the chance to plan more carefully on how to 'take care of him'.

End of the Clone Wars

In the final months of the Clone Wars, Anakin Skywalker realized that Palpatine was Darth Sidious. He called Mace Windu at the Jedi Temple via holo-terminal and informed him of this, including what Palpatine tried to do to Anakin. When Sidious tried to slay Mace and the other arriving Jedi, Anakin struck him down to help. Soon afterwards, Jedi-Senator Ahsoka Tano of Milli and Senator Lux Bonteri of Onderon addressed the Senate of what had and happened, then Prime Minister Lama Su of Kamino told the Senate and the Jedi Council about the 'Order 66' program in the clones' inhibitor chips. Also, after Palpatine's defeat, Mace and Anakin discovered the 'Death Star' plans in the Chancellor's computer and destroyed them forever.

But then, Jar Jar revealed himself to be Darth Snoke. He'd already recruited to surviving Darth Maula after Sidious' demise and sent her to 'take care of the CIS leaders'. After a chase through the Senate building, Jar Jar made his way to Padme's apartment. While Anakin went to face Maula on Mustafar, Jek chased after Jar Jar and dueled him. The two fought a duel that almost tore apart Padme's apartment. But when Jek knocked Jar Jar off balance, he was arrested by the Jedi, the clones and Padme's personal guard. Padme then escorted him back to Naboo to stand trial for treason.


Jar Jar was taken to face justice in the gungan city he'd once called home. The Gungan High Council found him guilty and Boss Nass executed him personally.

Personality and traits

At times, Jar Jar has seemed enthusiastic and goofy. But once revealed as a Sith, he was like a vicious, cold-blooded demon.

Powers and abilities

While meeting Dafanie and Jek, Jar Jar was able to leap about five feet in the air to do his dive, a clear sign of force-senstivity. Once revealed as Darth Snoke, he was able to weild a lightsaber and shoot lighting from his fingertips.
