Stormtroopers are characters in the Star Wars universe. They are typically portrayed as soldiers or guards and are often highly revered in the Galactic Empire.

Background

Stormtroopers first appeared in the Season Eleven episode, "Imaginationland, Episode II", where they were seen in the background chasing Butters Stotch. They next appeared, briefly, in the Season Twelve episode, "The China Probrem", where Steven Spielberg and George Lucas were seen raping one. In the Season Sixteen episode, "Obama Wins!", two Stormtroopers can be seen escorting a captured Eric Cartman to be interrogated by Mickey Mouse.

Appearance

Stormtroopers have white armor with a utility belt and a grappling hook attached to it. Their armor protects their entire bodies, including their head. and provides functions such as cranial protection, filtered air, blaster protection, temperature controls, and much more. They can be typically seen wielding "E-11 blaster rifle",[1] an energy weapon serving as the standard issue weapon of Imperial stormtroopers in the Star Wars universe.

  • In "Band in China", the stormtroopers are being replaced by First Order stormtroopers, a successor.
  • Interestingly, in the Imaginationland trilogy, a Stormtrooper is seen in the good side of Imaginationland when the boys arrive in Imaginationland, yet in the other parts of the trilogy, the other Stormtroopers are seen on the evil side of Imaginationland during the part where one torments Strawberry Shortcake with the other evil characters, and when the evil characters are planning on what to do with Imaginationland after breaking down the wall that splits the two sides of Imaginationland. It could be possible that the one seen on the good side was Han Solo.
