Ahsoka became a popular character, despite some fans disliking the young Padawan after her initial introduction.

As a prequel character and a Jedi apprentice, much early discussion around Ahsoka's character involved theorizing when and how she would die. Many fans thought it was a foregone conclusion that she would die before Episode 3, as her character was never referred to in Revenge of the Sith. Even if she survived until the end of the Clone Wars, fans assumed she, a Jedi apprentice, would perish following Order 66.

In fanfic, there are works focused on Ahsoka's future death. As well as many post-Order 66 works where she survives. At least one of these works explicitly references fridging; Get Out of the Fridge. This series was begun following the series 2 finale of Star Wars Rebels when it appeared that Ahsoka had died. Following the reveal that Ahsoka had survived her duel with Vader, many Ahsoka Lives works were kripked.

Other Common Storylines & Tropes

  • Mission Fics often portray Ahsoka and Anakin on a mission for the Jedi Council. Many of these works are gen and focus on the Master & Padawan relationship. There are also mission fics focused on her time with the Rebel Alliance, as Fulcrum.
  • Other works focused on her Jedi training also feature her relationship with her Jedi Master, and the Jedi Order.
  • In some works, Ahsoka is portrayed as a Jedi Knight. These works may be considered canon divergent as she never attained that title in canon, but originally many of these works were future fics.
  • Dark!Ahsoka is often a Sith. Either she was always a Sith or she is turned to the dark side. In some of these works Ahsoka is given a fanon Sith identity(name).


There are many non-shipping works focused on Ahsoka's relationship with her former master Anakin Skywalker. The het pairing of Ahsoka and Anakin, known to fans as Anisoka, is less common. Other pairings for Ahsoka include:
