Fan supercut shows just how deadly Star Wars' Luke Skywalker really is

Luke Skywalker may not be the villain of the original Star Wars trilogy, but he certainly kills like one. A new fan supercut, uploaded by YouTube user Mr Sunday Movies, shows just how many people (and creatures, droids, etc.) Luke took out while saving the galaxy from the clutches from the dark side. By this video’s count, the farm boy-turned-Jedi Master is responsible for a death toll of 369,470.

In the supercut, Luke starts out slow, racking up kills at a relatively modest rate (at least compared to later). All that changes when he destroys the Death Star, however. In an instant, his total jumps from 13 to a whopping 368,904. Battling AT-AT walkers leads to substantial jumps as well, with the creator of the video estimating that each holds 40.

The destruction of Jabba the Hutt’s palace, of course, is responsible for another spike. When Luke saves Leia and his friends, he wrecks havoc on the alien’s lair. By the time the place goes up in a cloud of dust, his kill count has gone from 368,961 to 369,467, a jump of 506. Between then and the end of the video, only a few more deaths are added, but when all is said and done, he’s not far from 400,000 — the population of a modest-sized city.

In Episode VII, the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Luke will be much older, so we don’t expect him to be quite so handy with a lightsaber. Nonetheless, the son of Darth Vader has proven to so deadly that we won’t rule anything out. Luke will again be played by Mark Hamill, who reprised his role alongside his original co-stars Harrison Ford (as Han Solo) and Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia).

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters on December 18.
