Yoda's Theme is a recurring musical theme in the Star Wars saga, composed by John Williams and associated with Jedi Master Yoda.

It was first used in the scenes on Dagobah in the The Empire Strikes Back, and in Return of the Jedi when Luke Skywalker visits a Yoda as he dies.

The theme returns briefly near the end of the The Phantom Menace, in which Yoda discusses the future of Anakin Skywalker with Obi-Wan Kenobi. In Attack of the Clones, the leitmotif is heard more often: first during the scene where Yoda is training the Bear Clan, the conveyor belt sequence in the Geonosian droid factory, and finally when Yoda saves Obi-Wan and Anakin from a pillar toppled by Count Dooku. In Revenge of the Sith, it is played when Yoda leaves Kashyyyk, when he escapes with Bail Organa after his duel with Darth Sidious, and during a scene cut from the film in which Yoda arrives on Dagobah.

The theme is heard again in The Last Jedi, when Yoda's spirit appears to Luke and encourages him to learn from his failure with Kylo Ren.

A more dramatic, fast-paced variant of the main motif is heard during Yoda's duel with Count Dooku in Attack of the Clones. This version is used in Star Wars: Battlefront II as Yoda's theme when he is played as a "Hero" unit. Pieces of the motif in the track "Carbon Freeze/Darth Vader's Trap" play in LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy on the Cloud City level.

The theme appears several times in the TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It first appears in Ambush, which featured Yoda as the main character; and in Assassin, when Ahsoka Tano tells Yoda about her visions of Padmé.
