Who’s the Most Insignificant Character To Almost Ruin Sidious Plan?

Who’s the Most Insignificant Character To Almost Ruin Sidious Plan?

Have you ever wondered about the ‘what ifs’ in Star Wars? One of the biggest ‘what ifs’ revolves around Order 66, Chancellor Palpatine’s secret command to eliminate all Jedi. 

Now, imagine if this plan had been discovered before it was carried out.

Believe it or not, there were a handful of heroes who almost turned the tide. Had they managed to reveal Palpatine’s plan, the Star Wars story as we know it could have taken a completely different turn.

ARC Trooper Fives

ARC Trooper Fives, also known as CT-27-5555, was a clone trooper in the Grand Army of the Republic who played a pivotal role in almost exposing Emperor Palpatine’s grand scheme during the Clone Wars.

His journey began with witnessing his fellow clone trooper Tup execute Jedi Master Tiplar in the midst of a battle.

This unexpected event sparked Fives’ curiosity, leading him to investigate the cause behind Tup’s actions. 

His investigation revealed a chilling truth: all clones had a chip implanted in their brains.

These chips, Fives discovered, were designed to compel all clones to turn against the Jedi and the Republic. 

Despite the Kaminoans’ claim that these chips were merely to make the clones more compliant, Fives realized the sinister truth.

He discovered that the Kaminoans, Count Dooku, and even Chancellor Palpatine were all part of this conspiracy. 

Fives attempted to expose this plot to Rex and Anakin, but tragically, he was killed before he could fully reveal the conspiracy. 

Despite his untimely death, Fives’ discovery and his brave attempt to expose the truth nearly thwarted Palpatine’s plan, proving that even the seemingly insignificant can make a significant impact.

Zillo Beast

The Zillo Beast, a semi-sentient predator native to the planet Malastare, was first discovered during the Clone Wars when it was awakened by a bomb authorized by Chancellor Palpatine. 

Despite its seemingly insignificant existence, the Zillo Beast posed a significant threat to Palpatine’s grand scheme.

Palpatine, intrigued by the Zillo Beast’s nearly impenetrable skin that could withstand even the Jedi’s plasma lightsaber blades, planned to conduct experiments on the creature. 

His goal was to replicate its armor for the Republic’s clone troopers, which would have given him a significant advantage in the war.

However, things didn’t go as planned. The Zillo Beast managed to escape and wreak havoc on Coruscant, the heart of the Galactic Republic. 

This event not only caused widespread panic and destruction but also threatened to expose Palpatine’s secret plans.

Interestingly, the Zillo Beast seemed to sense the darkness within Palpatine and specifically targeted him during its rampage, further jeopardizing Palpatine’s plans.

Despite the efforts to contain the beast, it was eventually killed by a poisonous gas. However, Palpatine, ever the opportunist, secretly ordered the cloning of the Zillo Beast. 

This decision led to the unexpected return of the Zillo Beast in The Bad Batch, revealing that the Empire was experimenting with it as part of their cloning program.

This revelation led Clone Force 99 to realize that the Empire didn’t destroy Kamino to stop cloning, but to control who and what was cloned. 

Thus, the Zillo Beast, despite being a seemingly insignificant creature, almost exposed Palpatine’s plans and disrupted his grand scheme.
