LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga Characters List: How to unlock all 380 characters

Every familar face from every den of scum and villainy in the galaxy.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, hundreds of aliens, Jedi, droids and bounty hunters came together to create one of the most diverse and beloved casts sci-fi had ever seen.

This means unlocking all of the LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga Characters is one of the first things you will want to do as you take on the Sith, Empire and First Order.

There are 380 characters in total to collect and some are easier to acquire than others.

Other than just being a ton of fun to play as all of your favourite characters like Chewbacca, Darth Maul, Poe Dameron, and even The Mandolorian and Baby Yoda, they have gameplay benefits as well.

All throughout your adventure you will find secrets, special objects and gizmos that only certain types of characters can interact with.

This might be a heavy block that needs a powerful Jedi or malevolent Sith to use the Force to move, an ancient artefact that only a bounty hunter knows how to open, or a password in an alien language that only a protocol droid can translate.

Building up a deep roster of iconic characters in LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga is key to seeing everything there is to see across your adventure, since you can replay missions in Free Play with any hero or villain to grab anything you miss.

Here’s a list of every single playable character in LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga, as well as how to unlock them.

We’ll continue to update this list as we find more.

How do you unlock LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga Characters?

There are two main ways to unlock characters in LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga:

  • Play through story missions
  • Complete Side Quests and Challenges

The majority of the main series cast and a lot of their alternate outfits will be unlocked as you progress through the various missions of all 9 episodes.

However, when it comes to the supporting cast, you might need to put a little more work in.

Around larger hub areas you will find characters with speech bubbles asking for your help with tracked side missions, complete the objective and you will get a new character to add to your roster.

Do this throughout the galaxy to finish the whole set!
