EA / PS5 Trophies

Not only can you find a toilet in the saloon, but you can use the Force to flush it. When you do this, you get an achievement or trophy and a useful shard that can be used to unlock a new cosmetic item from a nearby merchant.


Now, I’ll be honest: I’ve not finished the game yet. I’m still exploring Koboh. (Holy crap it’s big!) So it’s possible there are even more toilets to find and flush throughout its digital recreation of the Star Wars galaxy. If so, that would be very surprising considering the small number of onscreen toilets that have popped up in Star Wars over the decades.

A brief history of toilets in Star Wars

If you head over to Wookieepedia, you’ll find articles on everything that appears in the Star Wars franchise. And many of these articles, for even mundane things or background characters, will be hundreds of words long with multiple images and sections. Star Wars nerds love to go into great detail about everything.


However, pop over to Wookiepedia’s entry on toilets and you’ll discover far less information. Currently, the canon entry has one paragraph and a relatively short list of times that people have mentioned bathrooms or toilets in various books, comics, or elsewhere. And oddly, the older, no-longer-canon Legends version of the wiki’s toilet entry has less info and references. Usually, that’s not the case thanks to decades of EU books and comics fleshing out the old version of the Star Wars universe pre-Disney. But when it comes to toilets, well, we are living in a modern crapper renaissance in our current Star Wars era. I mean one even showed up in The Mandalorian on Disney+. How lucky we are!

Now, it makes sense that toilets rarely show up in Star Wars. This is a franchise filled with bombastic adventures, intergalactic politics, and space monks fighting evil space monks. There just isn’t a lot of time for someone like Obi-Wan to lean over to his friend and be like: “Right, before we head in and defeat that big baddie from wherever, I need to use the lavatory. Be back in a parsec!”

Often when they do show up it’s as a joke, like in this non-canonical but very funny moment from Robot Chicken. 


In fact, as far as I can tell, this is the first time we’ve ever seen a canonical, non-Easter egg toilet in any Star Wars game. And not only that, but Cal flushes it. That’s even rarer! Toilets don’t show up very often in Star Wars and when they do, they are almost never used on screen. I also think this might be the first time we’ve ever seen a Jedi use the Force to operate a toilet. Truly, this is a big moment in the history of Star Wars.

Also, thank you for reading 800 words of Star Wars toilet talk. If you want more, let me know.
