"The HoloNet is nothing but propaganda for politicians. It's not exactly known for its accuracy."
"I don't know. 'Hero with no fear.' I thought I looked pretty dashing there."
―Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker reflect on the title[3]

The title "Hero With No Fear" was a moniker given to Jedi Knight and General Anakin Skywalker during the Clone Wars.[1] After leaping to the aid of Obi-Wan Kenobi during a high-stakes mission on Cato Neimoidia[3] in 22 BBY,[2] transmissions of the heavily-publicized event were circulated across the HoloNet. To the annoyance of Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, reporters from organizations such as HoloNet News glorified Skywalker and his actions, bestowing the "Hero With No Fear" title upon him as an act of wartime propaganda.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

The "Hero With No Fear" title was reintroduced to Star Wars canon in the 2018 reference book Star Wars: The Complete Visual Dictionary, New Edition.[1] The title was originally introduced in the Star Wars Legends article "Republic HoloNet News Core Edition 15:01:03," published on Star Wars Insider 72.[4]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Star Wars: The Complete Visual Dictionary, New Edition
  2. 2.0 2.1 Brotherhood is set between the beginning of the Clone Wars and the Battle of Christophsis, as the novel's plot involves Anakin Skywalker becoming a Jedi Knight, a rank he attained between those events. As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates both events to 22 BBY, Brotherhood must be set in that year.
