10 The 2D Clone Wars Micro-Series Featured An Action-Packed Yoda (Legends) Yoda's first TV appearance came in Genndy Tartakovsky's Star Wars: Clone Wars, which showcased the Jedi Master in his most action-packed form. The very first shot of the series had Yoda igniting his green lightsaber as he rode into battle, and the 2D animation meant the series had no limits on the action. Clone Wars season 2 contained an arc where Yoda saved Luminara Unduli and Barris Offee almost single-handedly, while the final season 3 episodes had him team up with Mace Windu to fend off the Separatist invasion of Coruscant. Yoda may have been powerful in the prequel trilogy, but Clone Wars took his abilities to the next level.
9 Yoda Experienced A Vision Of Order 66 In "Sharing The Same Face" Star Wars: The Clone Wars season 1, episode 1 "Ambush" was adapted by Jason Fry into a short story for Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Stories of Light and Dark. It reveals that Yoda had a Force vision of Order 66 at the beginning of the Clone Wars, sensing that one of his clone troopers, Jek, would eventually have "feelings of disbelief and regret" only for them to be immediately "replaced by the need to obey." This is a reference to the inhibitor chips designed to make the clones execute Order 66 without question, and unfortunately, Yoda and the Jedi Council were unable to put the pieces together in time.

The story demonstrates the challenge of a person living for so long and seeing the galaxy change around them, making the conflict especially personal for Yoda. It also highlights that the Jedi were no longer peacekeepers, taking up arms against their former friends rather than trying to forge peace between both sides.
