    Jar Jar wouldn't be scary even if there were a million of them coming at you.
    Traumatic experience? Sure.
    Terrifying? No.

    My word, a legion of one million Jarjars?!
    Not even his own mother could put up with such incompetence!
    ... It Would be hilarious to see how they end up destroying themselves though.

    Interesting analogy comparing them to ants.

    I highly suggest the radio play put on by Escape! in the 1940s called "Leningen vs the Ants" starring William Conrad (it is available on YouTube).

    And if you want a full fleshed out movie version of the story, look up the 1950s film "The Naked Jungle" starring Charlton Heston.

    Personally I prefer the radio show. It's shorter and William Conrad is awesome.

    Jar Jar was an insane bombad General so 1,000,000 of him would screw any army.

    • Cooper Ondersma
      Cooper Ondersma 20 days ago

      the empire would still have been destroyed later on. Yavin was the death throes of the empire so even if they won they would still die out and events would happen similarly to how they originally happened

    What I find to be really abyssmal is the humanization the droids underwent in the media. It was understandable that the battle droids only followed basic patterns in the movies due to being massproduced, but what I can not understand at all is why they show traits of human emotion/make jokes/flat out ignore orders in the clone wars tv show and act even goofier (I get that they prbly were turned into an even more commical relief due to the show being aimed at kids, but if so don´t cannonize a show that not only ruined one of the best star wars characters but also only lives on stupid gags).

    I think the droid were just made stupid to make us laugh because mass production of a stupid IA is the same of mass producting a more advanced one. Only the base research is expensive and it would definitly be worth it. Basically, they wanted the droid to be fun because star wars isnt set in a grim and dark future.

    I just heard in the 2nd to last episode of season 1 of Star Wars: clone wars, a battle droid saying him and others were "free thinkers", as in not programed by a central computer.

    Does this effect the answer in anyway ?

    These Battle Droids were basically comedy relief, but I loved them nonetheless. I've love to see one evolve through luck, experience, and perhaps an unlucky patron. K2SO and BB8 were the highlights of the latest SW offerings, IMO.

    Real answer: Gorge Lucas wanted some levity in the film
    Legends answer:due to the fact they were mass produced they weren't made with the upmost quality somewhat similarly to American tanks in ww2 they were powerful in numbers they were cheap priceless foot soldiers mainly to distract for the real battle extremely sly and clever strategy applied by the sith or whatever

    That still actually doesn't explain why they would program "fear" into the droids, or why minor programming upgrades were not installed en-masse, which would be simple to do. Their sense of self-preservation is also baffling. Why make them fearful of death or capable of surprise? It would be far more daunting for a mass of these droids to exhibit no fear and refusal to try and preserve themselves unless specially selected for it (ie, if they are pilots, officers, etc). It still makes no sense why they are how they are.

    The answer is obvious: they are supposed to be comic relief enemies that aren't a threat. That's it.
