I guess if you don’t know what an Imperial stormtrooper is supposed to be, they can seem pretty scary. Come to think of it, even if you do know what an Imperial stormtrooper is supposed to be, they can seem even more scary.
But that’s only if you haven’t come up across an Akk Dog, a Hutt, a Kkryytch, a Wookiee, an Ugnaught, a Krayt Dragon, a Space Slug, a Tusken Raider, a Sleen, a Neebray, a Gundark, a Bantha, a Dianoga, a Jawa, a Noghri, a Rancor, a Twi’lek, a Zuxu, a Sando Aqua Monster, a Wampa, a Mynock, a Veermok, a Tauntaun, a Spice Spider, a Slivilith, a Rakghoul, an Ewok, an Orbalisk, a Nerf, a Mandalorian, a Laigrek, a Kaadu, a Gungan, or a Human.
Let’s not even get into Sith. Shudder.
