(5) C-3PO vs. (12) Shmi Skywalker

We have our first skunking!

R2-D2 blows past Boss Nass gaining all of the votes. A huge butt kicking by a character with no feet.

Anyway, let's see how is counterpart can do in his matchup. Enjoy!

(5) C-3PO

C-3PO is a protocal droid created by Anakin Skywalker on Tatooine. Once Skywalker is freed to Qui-Gon Jinn, C-3PO is left to his mother, Shmi Skywalker. When Anakin returns to Tatooine years later, C-3PO is found to be working on a moisture farm with the Lars family. He goes with Anakin and thus begins his time in space. C-3PO is the mouth of the duo (with R2-D2). He provided a lot of the comedy, especially in the original trilogy. He always thought R2-D2 didn't do anything, even though he did the most out of the two.

(12) Shmi Skywalker

Shmi Skywalker is Anakin's mother, and Luke and Leia's grandmother. She gave birth to Anakin in what can be gathered as some sort of immaculate conception. She is a slave to Watto on Tatooine and is later sold to Cliegg Lars, who eventually frees her and marries her. She spends her remaining days on the Lars' moisture farm until she is kidnapped by Tusken Raiders. Anakin senses this in his dreams and travels to Tatooine to rescue her - only to get there just as she is dying. This is a key moment in Anakin's life and the slow transformation to Darth Vader.
