Just seen a picture of Vader Force-choking a trooper. And then I started wondering: what if they had cloned a Sith (or a Jedi). Would the clones have the Force? Specifically, would they have the same Force as the original?

  • I'm sure they'd have the same midichlorian count, so I don't see why they wouldn't have teh same power with the Force.

    How is the first paragraph related with the second paragraph?

  • @MyCodeSucks ... wouldn't you run out of Midichlorian's? :P Commented Mar 24, 2015 at 14:42

    Again, we are not debating about force-choking. That's just what made me thing troopers are Force-less. Please stay on topic.

    @algiogia you should probably re-word the question to remove the first paragraph. Specifically, you just want to know if a clone of a Force user will have equal or similar Force ability.

Within G/Disney-Canon, this has never been tested. It can be noted, however, that midichlorians cannot be transplanted in the EU/Legends canon.

However, this has come up a few times in the EU/Legends canon.

A few notable ones off the top of my head:

  • The Dark Empire comics deal with the Emperor being revived via clone bodies. Each are very powerful Sith/Force Users.
  • Joruus C'baoth - the clone of a Dark Jedi, created by the emperor. The clone is a powerful Dark Jedi with full access to the Force.
  • Luuke Skywalker - a clone of Luke, created by Joruus, using cells from Luke's severed hand. Luuke is a formidable opponent and Force User.
  • Starkiller from the Force Unleashed games, who is a clone of Galen Marek. Like Marek, he has full use of Force Abilities, and is arguably stronger than the original (though, some of this is likely just due to heroes of sequel games needing to seem stronger than previous iterations).
  • I know next to nothing about EU/Legends, but I'm pretty sure I've read before on this site about some pretty important story lines involving a clone of Luke Skywalker? Commented Mar 24, 2015 at 14:38
  • Don't forget Luuke Skywalker (Jorus' clone of Luke) as well as Dorsk 82.

    In the question you linked someone suggests the midichlorian are something similar to the mitochondria, hence something that is part of the cell. That means that clones will have the same midichlorians. All the examples you have posted seem to confirm this.

    The Khommites are all clones, and it turned out that the entire line of Dorsk clones were Force-sensitive.

    Ugh. Force unleashed TWO not Force Unleashed.
