- "Poor Cutup."
- ―Echo, upon the death of Cutup
CT-4040, nicknamed "Cutup," was a clone trooper who served during the Clone Wars for the Galactic Republic. Cutup was initially stationed on the Rishi moon during the early part of the war. When the Rishi Station was attacked by Separatist commando droids, the troopers were forced to evacuate. Because of this, Cutup was attacked and eaten by a giant Rishi eel.
Training on KaminoEdit
- "You're a real cutup aren't you!"
- ―Bric giving CT-4040 his name.
Cutup was trained on Kamino, like many of the clones in the Grand Army, by a Mercenary Bounty Hunter, nicknamed Bric. The Squad which Cutup was apart of was on the verge of being assigned Sanitation duty as their performance during tests was poor. Cutup was blamed for the squad's failure, and after a fierce confrontation with his instructor, he received his nickname. His squad was ultimately commissioned to fight the Separatists.
The Rishi StationEdit
- "You wanted excitement, Hevy."
"Right. Oo-ooh, meteor shower."
- ―Hevy being sarcastic to Cutup's remark
The escalating war demanded more troops and many inexperienced clones - including Cutup - were pushed into service in much faster than it would normally take. Cutup was stationed at a listening post on one of the moons of Rishi. The moon itself was ultimately attacked by the Separatists, who proceeded to hardwire the all-clear signal driving the clones to evacuate the station. Cutup was later eaten by a Rishi eel. Despite his death, the squad managed to prevail as Rex and Cody, who were inspecting bases throughout the outer rim, arrived and were caught in the middle of the battle. The surviving troopers would evacuate from the planet.
Behind the scenesEdit
"Cutup" first appeared in "Rookies," the fifth episode of the first season of the The Clone Wars TV series, aired at October 24 2008. He also appeared in the first episode of the third season, titled "Clone Cadets," which chronologically took place before "Rookies." In the episodes, he was voiced by Dee Bradley Baker, who voices all clone troopers through the series. To make the clones of Domino Squad more unique from one another, Cutup was given a Scottish accent.
