The First Order Stormtroopers (simply referred as Stormtroopers) are the military infantry units of the First Order in the Star Wars universe. With their stark white armor and armed with powerful weapons, they serve as the enforcers of the First Order much like their predecessors had done under the fallen Empire.


Stormtroopers of the First Order are much more formidable than their Imperial counterparts in the Galactic Empire, and are more skilled, more versatile, better equipped and much more accurate in shooting. They are also indoctrinated and trained since birth to support the First Order's cause and beliefs, willingly serving the First Order with fervor and zeal.


The First Order Stormtroopers are loyal and obedient, and they follow orders without question from high-ranking officials such as Kylo Ren and Armitage Hux.

They are also very merciless in battle; killing their enemies or innocent civilians without any hesitation, guilt, or remorse. Despite this, most stormtroopers, like Finn, have a sense of justice, honor, good morals and principles.

Unlike their predecessors, the First Order Stormtroopers are skillful soldiers, being very good at aiming and shooting for their targets, and have been trained in hand-to-hand and melee combat.


  • Marksmanship: All First Order Stormtroopers are trained at very young ages to be skilled in utilizing blaster pistols and blaster rifles.
  • Melee Combat: All First Order Stormtroopers are trained at very young ages to be skilled in utilizing melee weapons; such as riot batons.
  • Hand-to-Hand Combatant: All First Order Stormtroopers are trained at very young ages to be skilled in unarmed combat.

The Force Awakens

The Stormtroopers appear in the seventh "Star Wars" movie The Force Awakens under the service of the Knights of Ren. They are now part of the First Order, a faction formed from a splinter group of the Galactic Empire, run by Kylo Ren and supreme leader Snoke. They are led by general Hux and captain Phasma, coming in a variety of variants, such as Snowtroopers, Flametroopers, riot control, and megablaster stormtroopers. Unlike their Imperial predecessors, First Order Stormtroopers are more intelligent, stronger, and more adaptable; they are capable of melee combat and are armed with stronger armor capable of apparently withstanding an attack by a Wookiee and better, more advanced weaponry. They also have a better aim. They are first seen tearing apart a village on Jakku in search of the map to Luke Skywalker's location, in which they slaughter the inhabitants on Kylo's orders. They proceed to engage their enemies on several fronts during the course of the film, including the Battle of Takodana.

One notable Stormtrooper in the film is FN-2187, better known as Finn, who deserts the First Order upon seeing both the death of one of his squad mates and seeing the First Order slaughter innocent bystanders on Jakku. He then proceeds to help prisoner and Resistance pilot Poe Dameron escape from Kylo and crashes on Jakku. Proceeding with Poe's mission to return Poe's droid BB-8 and the map he carries to Luke's location to the Resistance, encountering and befriending the scavenger, Rey, and heroes Han Solo and Chewbacca along the way. Finn later fully joins the Resistance when Rey is kidnapped by Kylo and helps to provide valuable intel on Starkiller Base, allowing the Resistance to destroy it. Finn also duels Kylo during the destruction of Starkiller Base with Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber, and though defeated, injures the Knight of Ren, allowing the Force-sensitive Rey to take up the weapon and defeat him.

Ralph Breaks the Internet

The Stormtroopers appear in Oh My Disney where they act as security guards. When Vanellope bumps into one of them, they chase her for using an unauthorized pop-up without a permit. When Vanellope runs backstage, the Stormtroopers ask Grumpy if he has seen her to which he confirms. After Vanellope glitches into the princesses' dressing room, the Stormtroopers decide to look for her in the Air Bud pavilion.

Disney Parks

In December 17, 2015, the First Order Stormtroopers had began meet-and-greet sessions in Tomorrowland at Hong Kong Disneyland, the second meet-and-greet characters as part of its 10th anniversary celebration since Lotso in one month ago, and in conjunction with the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.[1] They interact with guests as they explore Tomorrowland.


  • First Order Stormtroopers are equipped with armor of such strength that it is stated by Captain Phasma that not even a Wookie like Chewbacca can break it; it is unknown if this statement is fully accurate.
  • Unlike the Galactic Empire's Stormtroopers, the Stormtroopers of the First Order are skilled in melee combat to the point where they can fight on even terms against someone wielding a lightsaber, as evidenced when former Stormtrooper Finn fought the Stormtrooper FN-2199 (commonly referred to as TR-8R in public media), who utilized a lightsaber-resistant riot-baton.
