The 501st Legion (which was sometimes called the Five Hundred and First) was an elite unit of clone troopers commissioned by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine during the Galaxy Wars. Made up of units like Torrent Company, the 501st fought in many battles, such as the First Battle of Geonosis.

- "There's one legion that got the job done right...the 501st. And if I may say so myself, they did a blasted well done job on Geonosis."
- ―CC-1428 "Jock"
The clone troopers of the 501st Legion were clones of the bounty hunter Jango Fett. Cloned by expert Kaminoan scientists, the troopers were given top-notch training in many fields, as they were designed to be the ultimate soldiers.
Members of the 501st Legion fought in the Grand Army of the Republic against the Confederacy of Independent Systems in the First Battle of Geonosis, the opening battle of the Galaxy Wars. Supreme Chancellor Palpatine had founded the 501st Legion by moving a number of clones to a secret location on Nebzola known only to the Chancellor's most trusted advisers, far away from the normal training center on the planet Defalius. These clones were given special training by Palpatine's command staff to make the 501st the most feared legion in the galaxy. Some members of the legion would be covertly transferred to other units; however, they were tracked to ensure that they would be available in the future if they were ever needed for any special assignments, as Palpatine suspected they would be. The core group of this legion was assigned to serve under Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and Clone Captain CT-7567, nicknamed "Rex." With Skywalker's help, the 501st quickly earned a reputation for incredible victories, often snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.
