Younglings is a term given to the children in the Star Wars Universe, regardless of race or status. However, the term is most often heard applied to young Jedi trainees and children who are not yet experienced enough to become a Padawan.

Although just a Youngling when he is first encountered in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Anakin Skywalker grows up to partake in the slaughter of innocent younglings of The Jedi Order in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. This horrific and violent act is considered to be of great importance as it cemented Anakin Skywalker's uncontrollable rage and his metamorphosis into Darth Vadar; and ultimately his descent to the Dark Side.
