Yoda is one of the most beloved characters from the Star Wars universe. Although he’s one of the wisest characters, he knew how to throw an awesome joke every now and then. The way he talks, along with his small stature and great popularity, led to so many awesome jokes made about Yoda or related to the fan-favorite Jedi Master.
Without further ado, here are the best 25 Yoda puns, jokes, and wordplays ever, along with some awesome, funny quotes from Yoda himself in the Star Wars movies. Enjoy this, you should. Laugh, you will!
Best Funny Yoda Quotes From Star Wars Movies
“When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good you will not.”
Many laugh at Yoda’s “tiny green grandpa” appearance. Well, if you were nine hundred years old, how’d you look? The last laugh, Yoda will have! The quote is from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
“Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you?”
This one isn’t as funny as it is wise. However, it is kind of funny that a tiny, 900-year-old guy can whoop your butt at any moment if he wants to. Yoda might be tiny, but judging him by size is a huge mistake! The quote came in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
“Unlearn what you have learned.”
This quote is only funny if taken out of context. Out of context, it’s like when your parents are helping you with your homework, and you say, “but that’s not how we do it at school,” and they tell you, “well, you’ll learn it this way.” Like there’s a “cancel” button in our brains that can unlearn stuff we have learned.
In context, Yoda was talking about letting go of our biases and prejudices that we are certain are true without ever questioning them. Once you can let go of your own beliefs and look for the objective truth, only then can you truly learn and grow. Again, the quote is from The Empire Strikes Back.
“You will find only what you bring in.”
In the context of the movie – The Empire Strikes Back – this one wasn’t funny but deep. However, it becomes hilarious when you take the quote alone and put it out of context.
For instance, I saw this meme that says, “when you start living alone and open the fridge for the 10th time,” and the only thing in the fridge is Yoda’s face delivering the quote, “You will find only what you bring in.” It’s been a couple of years since I moved away, but I still find the joke funny and relatable.
“Happens to every guy sometimes, this does.”
This Yoda quote came in the Attack of the Clones. In the movie, they talked about something completely else. That’s probably why Yoda quotes are sometimes so funny. When you take them out of context, they go from wise to funny in a heartbeat. “It happens to every guy sometimes” is an encouraging thing to hear that no guy ever wants to hear.
Best Yoda Puns, Jokes & Wordplays
“May the Fourth be with you!”
This is a classic pun line referring to Yoda’s quote, May the force be with you. We all know it and say it on May 4th, when Star Wars day is celebrated.
“Baby, Yoda best!”
This one is a new version of an old Yoda pun. It works so much better now that we have Grogu, aka Baby Yoda, from The Mandalorian!
“What did Yoda say to the bad police officer? – May the excessive force be with you!”
I don’t want to generalize, and this one does not reflect every police officer and their actions. However, with all the cases of unnecessary excessive force use and police brutality, a laughed out loud when I heard this joke. It even comes with a meme.
“What kind of a car does Yoda drive? – A To-Yoda!”
It’s another classic we’ve heard a million times, but it’s still funny nonetheless.
“What will Yoda say if you criticize his grammar? – Metaphors be with you!”
This one’s a bit more innovative, but if you have to explain it, then it doesn’t work, right?
“What’s Yoda’s biggest regret? – Not a Dagobah he doesn’t regret letting Anakin skywalker fall to the Dark Side.”
For some reason, this one had me in tears.
“What did Yoda say to Luke when he struggled with chopsticks? – Use the forks, Luke!”
Especially if you’re eating rice or noodles. I don’t get how people do it, and neither does Yoda, according to this joke.
“Yoda, are you sure we’re going in the right direction? – Off course, we are.”
This is just another example of why it would be difficult, and dangerous to let Yoda drive. Plus, he’d have trouble reaching those pedals. Use the Force, he’d have to.
“Why didn’t Yoda believe that Obi-Wan Kenobi had a twin? – Only Wan Kenobi, there is.”
I mean Kenobi is a legend, so you can’t really argue the logic here.
“How does Yoda interact with the audience? – He breaks the Force wall.”
As an amateur filmmaker, I found this joke absolutely hilarious. George Lucas missed out on not using it in the films.
“What does Yoda say to Chewbacca when he makes a silly mistake? – A Wookie mistake, that was!”
Technically, it would also be the truth.
“What does Yoda say when Mace Windu talks too much? – Mace, Windu you stop talking?”
I’ll have to use this one on my friend when he starts talking about how much fun it was going to the gym.
“What did Yoda say to Obi-Wan when he failed a test? – It’s okay, you Kenobi perfect.”
No person Kenobi perfect, am I right?
“What did Yoda say while negotiating with the Empire? – Yoda-mands are too high!”
High, because they ask for too much, or high because they’re on a table and Yoda can’t reach them?
“Where did Yoda buy his clothes? – He found them at the Maul.”
Obi-Wan Kenobi joined him, and cut the prices in half!
“What’s Baby Yoda’s favorite haircare brand? – MandaL’Oreal: because worth it, he is!”
I can imagine little Grogu in a commercial, washing his bald head and feeling fabulous! This one comes with a meme as well.
“Why does Yoda like listening to Mozart the most? – Because the Empire strikes Bach!”
If Palpatine rolls with Bach, Yoda rolls with Amadeus!
“Why did Star Wars come out in the sequence 4, 5, 6, 1, 2, 3? – Because in charge of the sequence, Yoda was!”
That explains some of the biggest questions we have in life!
“What’s the name of Yoda’s mother? – Yomama!”
Yomama is so old, she was there when the Dead Sea was still alive!
“What does Yoda say when he gets drunk? – Oh, dear! It appears that I have ingested so much alcohol that it had severely impaired my speaking abilities.”
Poor Yoda, now he knows how hard it is for all of us to speak when we’re not drunk.
