Baby Yoda belongs to the same species as Yoda and Yaddle. But there is one strange thing about Baby Yoda’s aesthetics: He appears to be missing feet, while Yoda and Yaddle have them. So does he have feet, or does this mysterious species grow them later in life?
Baby Yoda has feet, but his robe often covers them, even when he is sitting. His feet are normal-sized for both a Force-sensitive of his age and for his species. And like Yoda in some of the films, Grogu has three toes on each foot.

Does Baby Yoda Have Feet?
Baby Yoda is one of the mysterious characters in Star Wars franchise history. And it’s comical that one of the biggest mysteries regarding him is his supposed lack of feet. Especially since other members of Yoda’s species have them.
We also know how mysterious Yoda’s species is. Although the species debuted in 1980 during The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars creator George Lucas remains mum on its background.
So does Baby Yoda have feet or is he constantly using the Force to levitate himself and move?
Baby Yoda appears not to have feet because his robe sweeps the ground and it’s so large that it covers all of his lower extremities.
While you rarely see his feet, they are there, and Baby Yoda walks like any other being in the Star Wars universe.
How Big are Baby Yoda’s Feet?
Since Baby Yoda is still considered to be an infant and, at most, a toddler even at age 50, his feet are predictably small.
We know this because when he sits, his robe still usually covers his feet, indicating their small size. And even when we’re lucky enough to see Baby Yoda’s feet, they’re in proportion with his body.
This makes sense with his species, since Yoda’s feet remained proportionate to his body throughout the Skywalker Saga.
As Baby Yoda grows, so will the rest of his limbs. But it’s easy to bet that, barring anything unforeseen, they won’t grow out of proportion to the rest of his body if Yoda served as an indicator.
How Many Toes Does Baby Yoda Have?
Yoda’s species boasts several interesting concepts. Their distinguishing features include small size, pointy ears, unusually long lifespans, and their tridactyl hands and feet, giving them three fingers and toes on each hand and foot.
However, Yoda appears to have four toes in Revenge of the Sith, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. Action figures from Hasbro have even contributed to the inconsistencies.
So has the same applied to Baby Yoda?
So far, it’s unknown whether Star Wars will treat us to the same inconsistency regarding Baby Yoda’s toes as they have with Yoda. But it’s an interesting thing to keep tabs on, as Baby Yoda’s appearances will undoubtedly increase.
Interesting Facts About Baby Yoda
Baby Yoda was born in 41 BBY, putting him at 50 years old in The Mandalorian. However, he’s still young since his species does not start maturing until at least age 50, if not later.
Despite his inability to talk, Baby Yoda communicated with Ahsoka Tano through the Force. And while he came across as an infant in The Mandalorian, he was still able to use the Force to protect himself and Din Djarin, sometimes threatening to wield the dark side.
There is an interesting theory that Baby Yoda’s parents are Yoda and Yaddle. This theory stems from the Jedi permitting their members to reproduce if it means continuing an endangered species. One Jedi, Ki-Adi-Mundi, had seven kids and four wives, so the theory is not farfetched.
Baby Yoda’s real name is Grogu. It was something Ahsoka Tano discovered when she communicated with him through the Force.
Grogu made non-canon appearances in LEGO Star Wars shorts like Snowflake Snack. He also appeared in the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special, and The Force Awakens From its Nap, which was a crossover between Star Wars and the Simpsons.
While Grogu did not appear in the Skywalker Saga, we learned his backstory in The Mandalorian. He was raised in the Jedi Temple, trained under several Masters, and even survived Order 66.
However, since his memory went dark, there is a lot we don’t know about this Force-sensitive being.
Jon Favreau conceived the character, and he wanted Grogu to be a complete opposite of Yoda. As Yoda died at age 900 in Return of the Jedi as a former Grand Master, Grogu was still an infant in human years and breaking into his Force powers.
Baby Yoda’s feet are hard to spot since his robe is so large. But when he sits, you can sometimes see them. They’re small, no larger in proportion to the rest of his body, and each foot has three toes.
Baby Yoda, whose real name is Grogu, is full of interesting facts. The most interesting is his character conception, in which Jon Favreau wanted to further explore Yoda’s species, but in reverse to what Yoda was.
So instead of starting off as a Jedi Grand Master, Grogu instead has limited knowledge of the Force, and he’s not even keen on becoming a Jedi.
