The Code of the Mandalorian

I saw a post from a website I follow that posts a lot of content regularly – most of it is great. And I saw a post on the Mandalorian Code and started asking myself questions about it hence, this post was born.

When it comes to The Mandalorian, I wouldn’t say I am a super fan but I am intrigued enough to write about the character and his plight in the series. That’s all it takes to hook you in. I love the show a lot and it’s exciting seeing how each episode unfolds but there are a lot of questions that don’t seem to be getting answered in the series so far.

The biggest one I have is so far is “is there such a thing as the Mandalorian Code and if so, what is the code exactly?” So that’s two questions but you get what I mean.

After reading up on the Mandalorian code, it appears that there are three facets to the actual code all Mandalorians must follow. The first is the Canons of Honor:

Strength is life, for the strong have the right to rule.

Honor is life, for with no honor one may as well be dead.

Loyalty is life, for without one’s clan one has no purpose.

Death is life, one should die as they have lived.

The second is the Resol’nare:

Wearing armor.

Speaking the language.

Defending yourself and your family.

Raising your children as Mandalorians.

Contributing to the clan’s welfare.

When called upon by the Mand’alor, rallying to his cause.

And the final part was known as the Supercommando Codex which was integrated into the Code of Honor.

Whether or not The Mandalorian Din Djarin follows each of these codes is yet to be seen but there does seem to be a lot of “isn’t that part of the Mandalorian Code?” questions mentioned throughout the series. So I guess to fully understand the code Din Djarin uses or refers to as The Mandalorian Code, we’d need to see that somewhere in writing and confirmed by its creators. We’ll probably get it in some book down the line after the second season or maybe in another book but it’ll end up somewhere.

The reason why I wanted to know about the code is because of what Din Djarin says to The Marshall about the Mandalorian Armour he is wearing. It does say that every Mandalorian must wear armour but nothing pertaining to anyone that isn’t a Mandalorian wearing Mandalorian armour. It’s a little specific but still, it’s not really confirmed anywhere that I looked anyway.

If you know where this specific part of The Mandalorian code is found, please do let me know so I can do a follow-up post to this one. And as always, have any questions you’d like to ask me or any feedback for this or any of my posts, I am always lurking in the comments so comment away!

Thanks for reading, enjoy your week, stay safe out there and I’ll catch you in tomorrow’s post!

  1. This is interesting, I’ve never heard of any official Mandalorian code, though I’m not surprised one exists. Yeah, I don’t know about the whole “other people wearing Mandalorian armor” rules. Same with the “never take your helmet off” rule. That seems to be a more recent addition to their code, as plenty of other Mandalorians took their helmets off, as in Clone Wars and Rebels. Maybe after the Purge (and I’m still a bit cloudy on that, too) they came up with a more stringent code to preserve their ways.
