The Stormtroopers of the original Star Wars trilogy are quite rightly seen as the most iconic example of the useless henchmen, thanks to their 100% record of never actually shooting their target, and running head-first into doors. But the crowning moment of glory in the career of any Stormtrooper of the Galactic Empire comes on Endor, where some of the Emperor's purpose-bred super soldiers are felled by teddy bears. We all know the legend: George Lucas wanted Endor to be an enormous battle between Stormtroopers and Wookiees, only to run out of funding and have to downsize the furry creatures. Bizarrely, he didn't seem to change too much of the actual battle, despite the now hilarious differences in size, so what you're left with is a large number of heavily armoured and armed soldiers being brought to their knees by (and still towering over) the Ewoks, armed with rocks and spears. Just try and imagine being the first trooper to be brought down, you'd probably die of embarrassment before your head is unceremoniously severed and used as a celebration bongo.
