R2-D2 and C-3P0

Who would have thought that a foul-mouthed and mischievous astromech and a prim and proper translator droid would be the best of friends? Yeah, R2 and C-3P0 may squabble but they always have each other's backs. While they may not be on the front lines, they were instrumental in pulling off the most seemingly impossible assignments. Not to mention providing some of the best comic relief.

They have appeared in all 9 Saga films as well as Rogue One, Rebels, The Clone Wars, and we cant forget all of the novels and comics! Speaking of novels and comics, this list contains a handful of the dynamic duo's best appearances in the extended universe.

C-3PO Special 1: The Phantom Limb

James Robinson
32 ABY

Stranded on a violent planet with a group of other random droids, we finally learn how C-3PO came to have his red arm in The Force Awakens.

While this might not be quite as action fueled as some other one-off comics, the plot is surprisingly deep. It discusses the idea of whether droids can form emotional connections and if they need their memories to be who they are, also bringing up how 3PO had his memories wiped at one point in time.

The Courtship of Princess Leia

Dave Wolverton
8 ABY

You know those novels your mom always had by her bedside, the ones with half-shirtless Fabio embracing a dainty lady in a thin gown? Well this is kind of like that, but Star Wars style. Han finds out that Leia has arrangements to marry another man for political reasons, but he’s not having it. His plan? Kidnap Leia so she can’t get married to anyone else. That’s romantic, right?
