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 more.

To the dude who said Luke killed vader, that's completely wrong. The emperor electrocuted him before vader threw him off the catwalk

Every time someone thinks of Star Wars they think of Darth Vader. They think of him when he was picking up that poor rebel solider, demanding for an answer. Or when his mask was taken off in the Return of The Jedi as you watched in shock.

He funny when he be pickin people up with his hand without touch them he do it through the air. - TopTensFan

Vader is awesome.

2YodaYoda 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.

What can I say. He's a little green dude with pointy ears. what's not to like?

Yoda is a great character because he is a very powerful Jedi master and dueled darth sidious to a draw in revenge of the sith he was also vqery wise and interesting in the star wars trilogy when he trained Luke

3Luke 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.

I think that Luke Skywalker is awesome because he is the most powerful jedi and Princess Laya too because she is a princess and she is wise and fair so I think they are both awesome and I do know that Darth Vader is their father. The thing I learn from Luke Skywalker is that he killed his father except Princess Laya.

To the guy that said Luke killed Vader. He's a idiot.

The guys the best Jedi out of all of the movies.

Why the heck isn't Luke Skywalker number one? He killed Vader! He came from being a poor farming to a Jedi Knight.

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.

Han is the most famous galactic smuggler. He pilots his infamous ship the Millennium Falcon, helps Luke destroy the Death Star, and makes out with Princess Leia! How better can it get?

You can't beat him. He will always have a worse feeling about things than you will. - cbrann10

Han Solo has got the lot, a smoking girl, a superfast space ship, rakish good looks and classic one liners. What an incredible smell you've discovered!

5Obi-Wan KenobiObi-Wan Kenobi is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, played by Sir Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor.

Obi-Wan is defiantly the BEST. He's always making cunning and humorous remarks. He is one of the only characters to be in all six episodes and service order 66. Sure..he may have started a lot of trouble by taking anakin as his Padawan against the counsels orders but he ment well. He just wanted to please his master. He killed Darth Maul (or so he thought. How does the clone wars end out? Darth Maul dies of course but still...), defeated and could have killed Anakin, AND trained Luke Skywalker. In my opinion, he is AWESOME!

Obi-Wan is cool, looks good and is a Jedi. Any more questions?

He is, and will always be, the classic Jedi.

You were the chosen one.

6Darth 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.

This guy is the coolest sith ever. He wields a double bladed lightsaber and slayed Qui Gon with it

Now we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi and have our revenge.

7R2-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.

He flies he is just plain awesome. He is a robot that traveled with 2 of the best jedi ever. whats not to like? He is also amazingly cute

He's also the rudest and most vulgar of all star wars characters, they beep out everything he says! He can also make every situation a whole lot better.

Everyone has said this but I'll say it again- R2-D2 is so cute! Why isn't he number 1?

Adorable and helpful; should be in at least the top 3.

9ChewbaccaChewbacca, 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.

He is by far the best one he should at least be in the top 5! - TheChosen1

10Boba 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.

This is by far the coolest bounty hunter ever. He has a awesome ship, an awesome voice, and an awesome jet pack! Take that Darth Vader

Put Captain Solo in the cargo hold.

My favorite by far. I love his guns, gadgets, and helmet. He is the
Best bounty hunter in all of star wars! Should be number 1!

not someone to piss off

The Newcomers

?Kylo RenKyle Rem is a fictional dark warrior strong with the Force, Kylo Ren commands First Order missions with a temper as fiery as his unconventional lightsaber.

The Contenders

11Darth Sidious

Darth Sidious is the most in-depth character in the series. He fools the jedi council by acting like a "kind old man" when he's really the most evil person in the universe, as well as the most powerful. Even when fighting Yoda, it's a stale mate. Darth Vader only gets to him by surprise.
By the way, when I say he's my favorite character, that does not mean I think he's likable.
Darth Sidious is portrayed best in the T.V. series Star Wars the Clone Wars. They show his brilliance and cruelty. When he kills Savage Opress and defeats Darth Maul in a matter of minutes (and they are both very powerful) that shows his skill with the lightsaber. Also he's really cool with two lightsabers.
Darth Sidious was one of the only good parts about the three movies about the Old Republic. Anakin was whiney, Padme was annoyingly portrayed, and Jar Jar was the worst character in Star Wars. Period. The only other really good character was Obi-Wan Kanobi, and only in the second and third.

Now young Skywalker you will die.

12General Grievous

He has outsmarted everybody the entire film

Army or not you must realize you are doomed.

He is clearly the funniest character in the Star Wars universe.

14Princess LeiaPrincess Leia Organa, later known as General Leia Organa, is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed in films by Carrie Fisher.

Why is she so low? She should be in the top ten.

15Anakin Skywalker

I'm not voting for anakin, I just wanted to write this comment. He's awesome, but I just wanted to say that he should be merged with Darth Vader, since they are the same person.

He's one of the greatest Jedi knights ever!

Technically shouldn't he be number 1 too cause he is darth vader

Well from my point of view the Jedi are evil.

16Plo Koon

Plo Koon wins because of his look, his voice, he's a jedi master, has a cool name, and has an awesome presence about him that no other jedi have. - CaptainComedy17

He's the coolest person in star wars. I also like Boba fett. I don't like how he died.

He doesn't have any lines like at all.

18Jar Jar BinksJar Jar Binks is a fictional character from the Star Wars saga created by George Lucas. A major character in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, he also has a smaller role in Episode II: Attack of the Clones, and a one-line cameo in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and the television series more.

Mesa be liking to ruin franchise.

Just cause he's hated so much he deserves to be loved on this list at least.

Who the hell put this here. That guy is a idiot. He slould be banned from top tens.
