Sith troopers were a stormtrooper variant that served the First Order during its war against the Resistance. Named after the Sith,[1] an ancient order of Force-users devoted to the dark side of the Force,[2] these troopers were the next evolution of Imperial/First Order stormtroopers. They wore red-colored stormtrooper armor and wielded a type of black and red blaster rifle.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

"It has some really unique aesthetics to it. And it has some subtle ties to previous stormtrooper designs, which I think fans will enjoy discovering."
―Lucasfilm archivist Madlyn Burkert, on the Sith trooper design[src]

Sith troopers were created and developed for the upcoming 2019 film Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker. They were designed by concept artist Glyn Dillon,[4] and were sculpted by Sam Williams.[5] The Sith trooper costume was designed by costume designer Michael Kaplan.[1] The troopers were first revealed by Lucasfilm through an article on and an episode of The Star Wars Show, both released on July 10, 2019.[3][6]
