Favorite Star Wars Characters


The Top TenXW

1Darth VaderDarth Vader was the original dark lord for Star Wars. Darth Vader ruled with both fear and aggression. Originally Anakin Skywalker a young Jedi who was then seduced by the dark side of the force by Chancellor Palpatine/Darth Sidious. Vader had his limbs cut off by his jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi leaving ...read more.

He's a tragic antihero and I LOVE this kind of characters. And after all the whole movie is about him, about his destiny. He really is the chosen one - he did kill the Sith lord in the end. And that thing with the dark side... Remember it was all done to save his love. Well that's why a Jedi must not fall in love

darth vader has the coolest voice

He is the best character ever, no one in the Star Wars universe can ever be better than Darth Vader, not even the new characters that will come up in the 8th movie and more

He's overrated!?! -guy ranting

2Obi-Wan KenobiObi-Wan Kenobi is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, played by Sir Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor.

I have to say, he is my favorite character in all of Star Wars. I was VERY sad when he died. Before Darth Vader messed everything up, Obi-Wan was noble and sarcastic sometimes. He probably had countless adventures with Anakin between episodes 1 and 2.

I wish they had a episode or something on Obi-Wan and Anakin's adventures!

''You were the Chosen One! You were supposed to destroy the Sith, not join them! ''

He'a the best Jedi that EVER lived! My favourite character in the whole saga!

My favorite character of the entire saga. Perfectly portrayed by Ewan McGregor and the late Alec Guinness.

3YodaYoda is a fictional character in the Star Wars space opera franchise created by George Lucas, first appearing in the 1980 film The Empire Strikes Back.

"Fourth on the list I am? Why rank me so low? Short I am, but kick your butt in lightsaber fight, I will! Challenge me if you must, or better yet, for me you must vote! "
-Yoda. (Yes, me it really is)

Yoda is the most epic character in Star Wars

He is very awesome in lightsaber fights

He's a hobo in the 5th and 6th movies!?! -guy ranting

4Han SoloHan Solo is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed in films by Harrison Ford. In the original film trilogy, Han and his co-pilot, Chewbacca, become involved in the Rebel Alliance which opposes the Galactic Empire.

The funny character in Star Wars. Han Solo is awesome. He didn't have to do everything he's done to help. It was his choice. He saved Luke's life. - Jammer196

The sheer awesomeness of Harrison Ford trumps all!

HE IS JUST THE BEST! And I love the romance between him and Leia! But... WHY? Why did he die?

He's also very overrated!?! -guy ranting

5Luke SkywalkerLuke Skywalker is a fictional character appearing as the central protagonist of the original film trilogy, and as a supporting character in the sequel trilogy of the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas.

Not only is he amazingly gorgeous, he's played with such an amazing range and depth of emotion by the inimitable Mark Hamill. Why is he not #1? THAT's IMPOSSIBLE!

He is what every great hero strives to be. May the force be with you

He is so gorgeous and an amazing actor. May the force be with you

He's too whiny!?!

6R2-D2R2-D2 or Artoo-Detoo is a fictional robot character in the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas, who appears in the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, and the sequel trilogy.

Aka God. Watch careful and you'll see everything unfold in star wars the way it does because of d2.

The only character to appear in his true form for all six movies. Clearly the main character of the entire saga.
-Also saves countless lives over and over

He' extremely overrated! -guy ranting

He is the true savage

7ChewbaccaChewbacca, nicknamed "Chewie", is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. He is a Wookiee, a tall, hirsute biped and intelligent species from the planet Kashyyyk.

Oh, man I used to have a Lego Chewbacca. I cannot seem to find him. He was the leader of all my other Lego men... Such good times. This bear thing deserves number 1!

He rips people's arms off and asks no questions...because he can't. He is a loyal killing machine that you definitely want on your side

He talks funny and he has feelings. He is a good loyal friend.

Everybody loves this roaring walking carpet!

8Princess LeiaPrincess Leia Organa, later known as General Leia Organa, is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed in films by Carrie Fisher.

I hope Princess Leia does more in Star Wars 8. She didn't do much in Force Awakens although it was good to have her back. Maybe she can face Kylo, not in a Battle or fight of course, but trying to get him back.

I think Princess Leia should do more in future Star Wars movie because in star was the force awakens she didn't do much. I hope she will be a main character again

Who chose the Disney Infinity Photo!?! -guy ranting

I think she is Rey's Aunt.

"Oh goodness gracious me! " C-3PO is hilarious. Should be higher.

There is no droid in the galaxy like this one.

Seriously he's ninth!?! -guy ranting

Gold android.

11Darth MaulDarth Maul is a fictional character in the science fiction franchise Star Wars. Trained as Darth Sidious's first apprentice, he serves as a Sith Lord and a master of wielding a double-bladed lightsaber.

Darth maul is good but he's only in one episode so that's why

He is by far the best he should be higher on the list

Darth Maul is awesome! He is the best of all

He is a weirdo!?! -guy ranting

13Qui-Gon JinnQui-Gon Jinn is a fictional character in the Star Wars saga, portrayed by Liam Neeson and is one of the main protagonists in the 1999 film Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.

He did what he though was right, not what he was told to think was right, and without him we would never have Anakin or Luke (and Obi-Kenobi for that matter really! )

Without Qui Gon Jinn we wouldn't have Darth Vader, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker

Awesome Jedi. But gotta say maybe he should have listened to the council.

14Boba FettBoba Fett is a fictional character in the Star Wars series. In The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, he is a bounty hunter hired by Darth Vader and also employed by Jabba the Hutt.

He's badass, plus his quotes are more awesome than Vader's at some points;

"Reality doesn't care if you believe it. "
"Rocket launcher. And what it does, if you know how to work it, is kill a lot of creatures. At once. At a nice long distance away. "
"You can run, but you'll only die tired. "
"I got bored just counting money. "
"Just wanted to remind you, Solo, that my personal fight was always with the Jedi. You were nothing more than cargo. "
"You should learn to shoot first, Solo. "
"Never use your kids, scumbag. Never. "
"Family runs deeper than Bloodlines. "
"I kill you just for the pleasure. "
"Dead or alive, I get paid either way. "
"I can't believe I'm getting paid for this. "

Boba is way better then R2-D2 he is the best, and C3PO you got to be kidding me! Boba Fett RULES!

How is he below the top ten? He's my all time favorite. Boba Fett is flipping awesome! - icecreammanjb

Why's he so far down!?! -guy ranting

Just a little beefy chunk of stomach fat and slime. Yes please.

My second least favorite character. He's so disgusting! (P.s Yes, Jar Jar is not my least favorite character. Deal with it! )

Cute r2 knockoff. Then again force awakens was a cute star wars knockoff.

Bb-8 is the cutest droid ever. He should be at a way higher place.

Best droid ever! Totally cute and funny

He's a complete ripoff! -guy ranting
