While characters like Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader may come to mind first when you think about Star Wars, the humble stormtrooper is one of the most indelible elements of the Skywalker Saga. Whether they're combing the deserts of Tatooine or patrolling the forest moon of Endor, every type of stormtrooper serves a unique role in the Empire or First Order.
And while every stormtrooper shares certain stylistic touchstones - rounded helmets, body armor, questionable marksmanship - each new chapter in the franchise offers new twists on the Imperial rank and file. The standard white-helmeted trooper is by far the most common, but almost every movie in the series has added a specialized spin on the original - from the cold weather assault stormtroopers of Empire Strikes Back to the jumptroopers of Rise of Skywalker.
This list compiles every stormtrooper to appear in a live-action Star Wars property (sorry, fans of the animated series, comics, and video games) to determine which ones are the most stylish members of the Imperial forces.
