So something that I've been wanting to do for a while is label all of the pilots that we see in the game that appeared in the movies. The idea sounded cool to me, and I thought at least one or two of you out there would think it just as cool of an idea.

Along the way I decided to add Jan and Kyle from the live action cutscenes from Jedi Knight. Why not? Once I had all of that done, a part of me wanted to add the pilots that only appeared in comics, but I decided against it. Maybe I'll add them someday if enough people like the idea.

____________________
Episode IV: A New Hope

BACKSTABBER: Seen flying in formation with Darth Vader and Mauler Mithel in the trench. This guy ironically got one-shotted by Han from outside of his firing arc, thus Backstabber became the backstabbed.

Vader: I'll take them myself. Cover me.
Backstabber: Yes, sir.

os6h48.jpg

BIGGS DARKLIGHTER: Biggs was shown in the cockpit since the original movie, however his scene sans helmet was deleted. It made it's way back onto the big screen after the Special Edition.

Biggs: Hey, are you coming up with us?
Luke: I'll be right up there with you...

2h6aef9.jpg

CHEWBACCA: Everybody knows this furry guy. This screen cap is from Empire just because I liked the shot, but his first appearance obviously puts him in this movie.

Chewbacca: Aaaaagh whhrrr grahhh
Han: Yeah, you said it Chewie.

2469h79.jpg

DARK CURSE: Another one of those TIE pilots that seem to all look the same :P This guy was killed by Wedge when Luke couldn't shake him.

Luke: I can't shake him!
Wedge: I'm on him Luke, hold on!

28wla2t.jpg

DARTH VADER: I bet you never heard of this guy. He had a minor role in the film, with brief cameos in the next two.

Vader: I have you now!

2cz69fb.jpg

DUTCH VANDER: This guy you have to pay attention to catch without his helmet. During the briefing before the Death Star battle, General Dodonna mentions that the target area is only 2-meters wide. He, among others, express their unease over that news.

 

Dodonna: ...a small one-manned fighter should be able to penetrate it's outer defense.
Dutch: Pardon me for asking, sir, but what good are snub fighters going to be against that?

w1vf9c.jpg

GARVEN DREIS: In the same resurrected deleted scene as Biggs above, Garven makes his sans helmet debut.

Garven: All wings report in!

9gx05d.jpg

HAN SOLO: Scoundrel extraordinaire.

Han: Sorry about the mess...

2zqzqmd.jpg

JEK PORKINS: Everyone's favorite fireball. He thought he could hold it. Unfortunately for him, he rolled his last hit.

Porkins: I can hold it!

23vhyxg.jpg

LUKE SKYWALKER: Farm-boy turned intergalactic superstar.

Comms: Luke, you switched off your targeting computer. What's wrong?
Luke: Nothing. I'm alright.

EDIT: Keep scrolling for more. You can only add so many images per post, so I made four posts all together. I thought I could crank them out fast enough so they would be back to back, but it appears I was wrong. Anyway...enjoy! And fly casual.

I believe Darth Vander and Dutch Vader are brothers from a different mother.

Very nice, I like this! Needs a Wedge and Mauler Mithel entry I feel. Speaking of Mauler... is he the TIE pilot who just suddenly barrel rolls himself into Vader and the trench to his death like an idiot?

Pretty much. "Vader" is Dutch for "Father." There's definitely something incestuous going on there...

MAULER MITHEL: The other pilot in formation with Vader and Backstabber. He's the one who so kindly clipped Vader and sent him flying far from the soon-to-be-exploded Death Star. What a pal.

 

Vader: What?!

Han: YAHOOO!!

Mauler: Look out!

 

28lb69h.jpg

 

WEDGE ANTILLES: Another pilot that makes his debut in ANH but didn't really give a good sans helmet appearance until ROTJ. Funfact - the guy sitting next to Luke during the Death Star briefing was supposed to be Wedge ("That's impossible, even for a computer!"). They ditched him because apparently he was a crap actor and went with Dennis Lawson as the Wedge we all know and love for the rest of the scenes.

 

Wedge: Look at the size of that thing!

HOBBIE KLIVIAN: Hobbie, Luke's been hit.

 

Leia: The energy shield will only be open for a short time, so you'll have to stay very close to your transports.

Hobbie: Two fighters against a Star Destroyer?

HOWLRUNNER: A pilot who was retconned into Empire, she along with Night Beast and another member of Obsidian Squadron chase the Millennium Falcon as it makes it's escape from Cloud City.

LANDO CALRISSIAN: Card player, gambler, scoundrel. You'd like him.

 

Lando: What have you done to my ship?!

NIGHT BEAST: Along with Howlrunner and a member of Obsidian Squadron, Night Beast followed the Falcon out of Bespin's atmosphere and watched it escape to lightspeed. Try not to make eye contact with Vader when you land, bro.

Fantastic, I love it! Your cinema-fu is impressive... Most impressive...
Semi-relevant sidebar; has anyone else noticed that no Rebel pilot with a moustache survives the Battle of Yavin? (or Endor, for that matter, save the indomitable Lando Calrissian).
Thanks for sharing your findings! 😁

Unfortunately, gold leader's name comes from an error somebody made. In the actual movie you can quite clearly hear gold 5 identify him a "Hutch", not "Dutch".

My new favorite thread! I had Wookiepedia'd a couple of Imp pilots, but this is a handy, VERY well-put-together list of everyone!. If I had a cookie, I'd give ya one.

 

As for Tycho, wasn't he the one that crashed into the Executor's bridge?

I think that was Arvel Crynid, Tycho's the one who enters the Death Star on Lando's wing, then leads some of the pursuing TIEs on a merry chase while Lando & Wedge deliver the kill shot.

Yeah, "Pops" called Dutch Hutch instead. I never knew until years later that it was wrong. Anyway, a few others: Ten Numb is seen in the Endor briefing before the shuttle Tydirium is launched, Lt. Blount is the second gunner of the Millenium Falcon during Endor, Horton Salm is Grey Leader during Endor, Arvel Crynyd is Green Leader during Endor, and Jake Farrell is the old A-Wing pilot who lead away TIE's when Red and Gold Squadrons when Lando asks them to break off.

 

Actually come to think of it, do we even see any of Tycho in the movies at all?

 

Also, isn't "Winged Gundark" part of Obsidian Squadron as well?

I guess that explains his ability, then. He loves crashing into things.

ARVEL CRYNYD: We all know this guy. He's the one who decided to boost into the bridge of the Executor after taking a critical damage card.
 
Arvel: Green leader standing by.
 
2h6vv43.jpg
 
CAPTAIN YORR: This dapper dude never really wanted to look up at the massive Death Star in front of him, or the camera for that matter. Probably busy with his mobile squadron builder app...or flying. One of those.
 
Yorr: Command station, this is ST-321, code clearance blue. We're starting our approach, deactivate the security shield.
 
2yl5qhy.jpg
 
COLONEL JENDON: He doesn't have much to say. He's too busy trying to give one of his target locks to the TIE fighters escorting him.
 
1eb0hi.jpg
 
HORTON SALM: This guy was accidentally used as two different characters. Mr. Salm here is Grey leader, however in a later scene Wedge reacts to a scene where they show him gunning down an Interceptor by saying "Good shot, Red 2". Nice try, Wedge. I guess with that many pilots around you, you tend to forget people's names.

 

Horton: Grey leader, standing by.
 
5duh3m.jpg
 
JAKE FARREL: The first time this guy stood out to me was when they used him in the PC game Rebel Assault, where he trains you to use an A-Wing. Fitting, as that's the ship he flies here.
 
Lando: Split up and head back to the surface. And see if you can get a few of those TIE Fighters to follow you.
Jake: Copy, Gold leader.
 
2po78r9.jpg
 
KEYAN FARLANDER: Retconned into ROTJ wearing his B-Wing flight suit.
 
21lvbzd.jpg

TEN NUMB: Mr. Numb here just kinda hangs out during the Endor briefing.
 
rr10ti.jpg
 
TYCHO CELCHU: This guy was retconned into this scene. Good enough for me.
