Why does C3PO always shit on other robots and non-humans at every opportunity, but sucks up to every human he meets?
Was he programmed to do that?
Self-preservation, probably. Protocol droids' primary purpose is to serve their master. C-3PO has a propensity for insulting other droids to make himself look better and brown-nosing every human or other sentient being he meets, either out of fear to make himself look good.
Compare how quickly he warms up to "Master Luke" to the terror with which he praises "his high exaltedness, the great Jabba the Hutt" - while the reasons are different, 3PO's instinct is to please his master.
Droids were originally supposed to be like slaves. (hence the "we don't serve their kind here" type of mentality that was dropped after IV)
3PO is like the Star Wars equivalent to Uncle Ruckus, so pretty much what >>64502069 said.
>hence the "we don't serve their kind here" type of mentality that was dropped after IV
That was actually because the use of the Droid Army in the Clone Wars bred distrust of them.
>3po was hilarious in episode 4 and 5
>completely annoying in 6
>should never have been in the pt
I miss the funny smart ass coward.
also why do driods feel pain? It's kinda hard to ignore the fact that droids feel fears, anxiety yet are treated like they don't matter. During hoth, c3pSNOW died and no one wept.
