Why does Anakin call Ahsoka Snips?

Ahsoka and AnakinDisney+

Earlier in Ahsoka, she reunited with Anakin Skywalker – but why does he call her Snips?

In our review, we said the fourth episode “allows itself room to breathe and intensify the suspense, there’s edge-of-your-seat Jedi action, and you may even be left with goosebumps.”

Ahsoka mainly revolves around the heroes’ efforts to prevent the return of Grand Admiral Thrawn and bring Ezra Bridger home from the Unknown Regions, but it all goes wrong in the new chapter when Morgan, Baylan, Shin, and Sabine take the Eye of Sion to the neighboring galaxy without a trace.

The final moments see Ahsoka in a strange astral plane, where she comes face to face with her former master – but Anakin calls her Snips, and some Star Wars fans want to know why.

Why does Anakin call Ahsoka Snips in Star Wars?

Anakin started calling Ahsoka “Snips” because of her snippy attitude when she first became his Padawan.

When Ahsoka made her debut in The Clone Wars movie, she was an impulsive, outspoken teenager who wasn’t as obedient and mindful of herself in the presence of other Jedi Knights and Masters. Anakin wasn’t happy about being forced to take on his own apprentice, despite the fact he was just nine years old when he began his training.

As we know, Anakin wasn’t exactly a model student of the Jedi Order: his arrogance and stubbornness put him at odds with Obi-Wan Kenobi and others around him, but it was all usually well-intentioned, just like Ahsoka.

Nevertheless, they weren’t the best of friends when they started spending more time together. On one particular occasion, Ahsoka quipping, “You’re stuck with me, Skyguy” got under his skin, and he told her: “Don’t you get snippy with me, little one.” From here, her nickname of Snips was born.
