A couple of hours in to Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, protagonist Cal Kestis explores the planet Koboh in search of his previous buddy Greez (the four-armed alien pilot from Fallen Order). Before Cal finds Greez, although, a frog-like alien will get thrown into his path — actually — by a gaggle of indignant raiders. That poor little alien is Turgle, and I love him. So does the remainder of the web.
[Ed. note: This article contains minor spoilers for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.]
Turgle rhymes with “turtle,” however once more, he’s a frog. There isn’t a lot innovation right here in phrases of character design, and I should make clear: That’s not a grievance. Turgle is a frog who’s about 3 ft tall and walks on two legs, like a barely taller model of Aogaeru from Spirited Away. He is a priceless addition to Star Wars canon, and I will protect him in any respect prices.
Turgle doesn’t make it simple to protect him, thoughts you. He is a little bit of a scammer and a troublemaker, which is why the raiders got here after him in the primary place. Turgle had offered them a “priceless relic” that turned out to be “fake” (though Turgle insists he had no thought). He would possibly strike some individuals as a bit annoying, together with his high-pitched voice and defensive tone. Despite all of that, Cal nonetheless steps in to save the little froggy from sure demise by the hands of the indignant raiders.
From the second that Turgle leaps joyfully out of hurt’s manner, watching from the sidelines as Cal Kestis delivers a lightsaber-assisted beatdown, he earns himself a everlasting place in my coronary heart. Is he extra bother than he’s value? Absolutely, since he learns nothing from this expertise and retains on partaking in skulduggery and con artistry. But take a look at him! Look at him!!
I’m not the one one who’s develop into obsessive about this little goofball. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor gamers have been sharing clips and fanart of their favourite frog:

If turgle has one million followers, then I am one in every of them. If turgle has ten followers, then I am one in every of them. If turgle has just one fan then that’s me. If turgle has no followers, then which means I am now not on earth. If the world is towards turgle, then I am towards the world.
