A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… Star Wars Trivia Team names!
Should you ever find yourself in Mos Eisley Cantina, playing Sporcle Live Trivia, then you had better make sure you are well prepared. In such a “wretched hive of scum and villainy,” you wouldn’t want any bounty hunter making bantha fodder out of you for having a lame trivia team name.
Choosing that perfect trivia team name might sound like a tough task. You certainly wouldn’t want to Force any Star Wars puns. Thankfully, we’re here to help. Not only will this post send you on your way to picking that perfect, punny team name, but it will help you make the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs.
Here Are the 25 Best Star Wars Trivia Team Names.
1. All About That Base, No Rebels
What do you get when you combine Meghan Trainor’s hit song, “All About That Bass,” and the Galactic Empire? A punny team name that lets everyone know you could care less about Rebel scum. You just want to capture that base.
2. Let the Wookie Win
It’s great life advice to live by. As Han Solo once eloquently said, “a droid don’t pull people’s arms out of their sockets when they lose. Wookiees are known to do that.” Should you notice any Wookies sitting near you at your next pub trivia show, it’s best to just play it cool.
3. Let Qui-Gons, Be Qui-Gons
Upset with how the Prequel Trilogy turned out? Sometimes it’s best to forget past offenses and get on with your life. Remember, those films also introduced us to Liam Neeson’s Qui-Gon Jinn, so they can’t be all bad.
4. Livin’ La Vida Yoda
Do you enjoy raising X-wings out of swamps? Have you always dreamed of training young padawans? Is listening to Ricky Martin one of your guilty pleasures? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you might just be livin’ la vida Yoda.
5. And I Thought They Smelled Bad On The Outside
No, we aren’t talking about bar bathrooms here. Han Solo uttered this famous line after slicing into a dead tauntaun while on the icy planet of Hoth to help save Luke Skywalker. Sometimes, you have to go to extreme tactics to survive, or to win at bar trivia.
6. Sorry About The Mess
This name is great because it serves two purposes. First, it shows everyone at the bar you know your Star Wars trivia. And second, it allows you to preemptively apologize to the wait staff for your messy table. Hopefully you didn’t have to shoot any bounty hunters.
7. Sith Happens
It’s true. Even the most loyal Jedi can turn to the dark side. It’s best not to get all up in arms over it. Sith just happens sometimes, and there’s no use crying over spilled Bantha Milk. Also keep this in mind if your trivia team doesn’t fare as well as you had hoped.
8. Imperial Walker, Texas Ranger
Chuck Norris doesn’t use the Force. The Force uses him. If you thought the lightsaber battles throughout Star Wars were lacking a good roundhouse kick to the face every now and then, then this team name is for you.
9. We’ve Got a Bad Feeling About This
Look, sometimes you just have to trust your gut. If you’re not feeling too confident in your team’s ability to win, try using this team name. Taken from a well-known phrase in the Star Wars series, this quote became a bit of a running gag throughout the saga.
10. Scruffy-Lookin’ Nerf Herders
“Nerf herder” is commonly used as an insult throughout most of the galaxy, but really, nerf herders are just people who herd nerfs. That doesn’t seem so bad to us, so why not take pride in the phrase and use it as a team name? Plus, there is no harm in being scruffy lookin’!
11. Han Shot First
In the 1997 special edition of A New Hope, during the iconic cantina scene, we see bounty hunter Greedo first shoot at Han Solo, with Han eventually returning fire. Don’t be fooled this revisionist history. True fans know what really happened in the original 1977 theatrical release. #HanShotFirst
12. Tosche Station Power Converters
Remember when Luke Skywalker was a super whiny kid on Tatooine who just wanted to go pick up power converters at Tosche Station with his friends? It’s hard to imagine that same wimpy guy would go on to blow up the Death Star.
13. The Force is Strong with This Pun
Yoda told us a lot about the Force – “life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us.” If the Force can hold the galaxy together, it probably can also help out your trivia team. Use this name to emphasize that the Force is your ally, and that you came to win.
14. Aluminum Falcon
“You’ve never heard of the Aluminum Falcon? It’s the ship that can be recycled in less than twelve parsecs. I’ve outrun garbage collectors. Not the local bulk cruisers mind you, I’m talking about the big Waste Management trucks now.”
15. Looking for Love in Alderaan Places
Having trouble with your love life? It’s okay. If someone doesn’t get your Star Wars references, then they probably aren’t for you. Use this team name to let the other bar patrons know that you are a single Jedi, looking to mingle.
16. The Official Jar Jar Binks Fan Club (est. 1999)
So everyone from movie critics to your grandma is telling you how bad the Prequel Trilogies were, but you secretly kind of enjoyed them. Why hide your love of midi-chlorians, Hayden Christensen’s acting, and Jar Jar Binks? Wesa think you should show your Prequel pride!
17. Kamino Acids
Kamino was the watery world where the Clone Army of the Galactic Republic was created. Amino Acids are simple organic compounds. Put them together and you get this punny team name, which will impress Star Wars fans and chemists alike.
18. From My Point of View the Drinks Are Free
Remember when Obi-Wan and Anakin got all touchy feely on Mustafar, talking about their points of view and such? From our point of view, it was not George Lucas’ best writing. But the scene does lend itself to a clever team name, and makes a valid case for a free bar tab.
19. My Wookie Steak Is Chewie
Mmmm….Wookie steaks. Okay, so maybe PETA would not approve, but it is certainly true that nobody likes their steak chewy, or Chewie for that matter. If you want to make the entire bar sad as they think about eating Wookie, then this is the perfect Star Wars trivia team name for you.
Anakin, your best friend just cut off your limbs, your wife is dead, and now you are Darth Vader, what do you have to say for yourself? Taking from a classic line in Revenge of the Sith, this name is great because there is no limited to the number of o’s you can put in it.
21. Now This is Podracing!
Jake Lloyd received a lot of flack for his portrayal of Anakin Skywalker in The Phantom Menace, and we think that is a bit unfair. He was just a kid after all! How about showing him some love by using this memorable quote as a team name, because admit it, podracing also looks kind of fun.
22. Jango Unchained
Remember Jango Fett? He provided the genetic template for the clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic. He also was one of the best bounty hunters in the galaxy, and father of Boba Fett. If you want to let out your inner bounty hunter, this name is for you.
23. It’s a Trrrrrrap!
Admiral Ackbar’s line, “It’s a trap!”, which he says during the Battle of Endor in Return of the Jedi, is one of the most famous and beloved lines from the original Star Wars trilogy. This team name will score you big points with other Star Wars fans, and is good for any situation.
24. Qui-Gon Jinn and Tonic
Qui-Gon Jinn may have only appeared in one film, but fans quickly took a liking to his empathetic nature and maverick ways. Unfortunately, he met an untimely death at the hands of Darth Maul, who bisected him with a lightsaber. Definitely use this team name if drinks are ever half off.
25. Ewok This Way
Who could forget the lovable bears from the forest moon of Endor? They were most notable for helping the Rebel Alliance defeat the powerful forces of the Galactic Empire with mostly just rocks and logs and stuff. Show these fuzzballs some love with this great team name!
