Favorite Hondo Ohnaka Moments
In both Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, Hondo Ohnaka, in true pirate fashion, steals EVERY scene he is in. I asked fans of this tough, pragmatic, but honorable Weequay pirate what their favorite Hondo moment is.
When Hondo captures Count Dooku, Anakin, and Obi Wan
One moment that really helped Hondo become one of my favorite supporting characters in The Clone Wars was in an episode titled Gungan General. While holding Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Dooku as hostages, Hondo shares a life lesson he says he learned from his mother. His mother taught him that having one hostage is good, two is better, and three, well, that’s good business. It’s a reminder that no matter what good Hondo does for others, he’s still a businessman and pirate at his core. Chickaphant via Facebook
When Hondo meets Plo Koon
When Plo Koon and Ahsoka arrive on Florrum, Hondo tells them they’re walking into a trap and Aurra is waiting for them in the bar. Hondo wants them to understand that he has nothing to do with whatever she has planned. This scene shows that Hondo actually has some humanity in his Weequay body.

When Ahsoka and the Younglings rescue Hondo from General Grievous
Christopher Marino and Joe Pulford both agree that it is when Ahsoka and the younglings go from battling Hondo, where he goes from planning on selling them, to becoming allies in the face of an attack by General Grievious in Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 5 episode, A Necessary Bond.
Hondo vs “Crime Lords”, Maul and Savage Opress
Missy Ky’a believes that the BEST one is Hondo’s encounter with Darth Maul and Savage Opress in the Season 5 episode, Revival.
When Hondo meets Ezra
I LOVE THE “BROTHERS OF THE BROKEN HORN” EPISODE-HE’S LIKE A COMEDY ACTOR IN THE ’40S, TALKING FAST AND SLIPPING IN LITTLE JOKES THAT ALMOST GO BY TOO FAST. Laura Bryce via Facebook
Hondo talks about Obi-Wan
The scene in Star Wars Rebels episode, “Brothers of the Broken Horn,” where Hondo says to Ezra about Obi-Wan, “One of my best friends was a Jedi. I’m pretty sure we were friends.” Raynald Gobeil via Facebook
My husband, Michael, is unable to choose just one moment of Hondo. He says that the problem with picking one moment is that any scene or moment is a favorite Hondo moment.
This character never fails or disappoints to bring humor whenever he is on screen. Michael Hammond
