Easter Eggs, References, & Trivia Facts in ‘Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’

By George Bate & Josh Bate

In typical Star Wars fashion, there are plenty of easter eggs and references for eagle-eyed Star Wars fans to notice in the latest videogame Jedi: Survivor.

BD-1’s health is indicated by the color of his back panel lights. Green means he’s all good, yellow means he’s taken some damage, and red means he’s in trouble.

Anakin’s speeder from Attack of the Clones can be seen on Coruscant and Koboh.

Noshir Dalal voices Bode Akuna. Previously, Dalal played Varko Grey in Star Wars Squadrons and Admiral Rampart in The Bad Batch.

Cal’s Vortex Dive attack while wielding a double-bladed lightsaber is the same move used by Darth Maul in EA’S Star Wars Battlefront II.

Some of the Bedlam Raiders are recommissioned B1 Battle Droids, a type of droid introduced in The Phantom Menace.

Magna Guards also appear, another remnant of the Clone Wars era.

Platoon’s Saloon features Phase II Clone Trooper helmets and a replica of Jabba’s Sail Barge.

Outside of Pyloon’s Saloon, there is a Gatekeeper Droid, which was first seen in Return of the Jedi, later appeared in The Mandalorian, and will show up again in Skeleton Crew.

Greez has a mechanical arm in Jedi: Survivor, something he didn’t have in Jedi: Fallen Order. Read Sam Maggs’ Jedi: Battle Scars to find out how this happened.

Dagan Gera is a Jedi from the High Republic era. This era was first seen in The High Republic: Light of the Jedi by Charles Soule and is now the setting of a variety of books and comics set before the prequel trilogy.

Dagan Gera is obsessed with the planet Tanalorr and is distressed when the Jedi abandon the planet following an attack from the Nihil. The Nihil are the primary villains in the High Republic’s Phase I and are led by the deadly Marchion Ro.

Captain Skoova Stev, a fisherman Cal Kestis can speak to on Koboh in Jedi: Survivor, tells a story of how he was saved by a Purrgil, the hyperspace-traveling space whales introduced in Star Wars Rebels and later seen in The Mandalorian.

Cal visits Jedha, where Cera Junde and Merrin have been based. Jedha is the planet decimated by the Death Star in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and most recently featured in The High Republic: The Battle of Jedha by George Mann.

There is a secret room in the Harvest Ridge. If you can manage the treacherous navigation to this room, you’ll find yourself walking into an art class! B1 battle droids are sitting in a circle painting a Mogu.

Cere Junda is helping The Hidden Path, a secret organization that attempts  to transport Force sensitives and their allies to safety away from the Empire. The Hidden Path was first mentioned in Obi-Wan Kenobi and Jedi Quinlan Vos is mentioned as one of the Jedi helped by the organization.

The dreaded Oggdo Bogdo from Jedi: Fallen Order returns and is still one of the most difficult bosses to beat.

Cal fights Rick the Door Technician, which is a reference to Adam Driver’s character Matt the Radar Technician on Saturday Night Live.

Cal can stun the Rancor by using the Force to push a bone into its mouth. This is akin to what Luke Skywalker does to Jabba’s Rancor in Return of the Jedi.

Boba Fett makes an appearance, once again played by Temuera Morrison. Players get to confront Boba as a reward for completing all of the game’s other Bounties.

Rayvis is a Gen’dai, the same species as Durge from Star Wars: Clone Wars.
