Top Ten Most Pointless Star Wars CharactersCaptainComedy17 The characters that Star Wars could have done without.
The Top Ten
Ok all of the characters on this list have purpose. But Jar jar was put in the movies just for small children's amusement. I do want to point out that jar jar changed the fate of the galaxy when he rallied the senate to give palpatine all the emergency in the clone wars. Without that there would be no clone wars, no murder of the Jedi, no rise of the sith, no empire, no rebellion...
I hate this character. Easily the worst. The series would've been better without him. And whoever put Leia on this list has clearly never watched Star Wars, because she's great, and she rescues Han from the carbonite freezer, as well as saves them all from the stormtroopers after they break her out of the detention level in a New Hope.
Who the hell put Leia on the list? Strong female character < Jamaican frogman? At least most of the voters know what they're voting about.
Jar jar was an annoying ass. He was just there to be silly and stupidV 60 Comments
He's just as bad as Jar Jar. He has the stupid "Jaw Flap."
I agree he is annoying, but he did provide a ship for jar jar, qui gon, and Obi wan, as well as an army to fend off the battle droids, so he is kind of important to episode one.
Most annoying movie character ever
He's more annoying then jar jarV 6 Comments
Why is he on this list. He captured Han Solo which forced Luke and his friends to try and save Han. Sad he was barley in Jedi
I think the reason they love him is because of his appearance.
Let's get something straight I AM NOT VOTING. I am writing this comment. What the hell is boba fett doing on this list?!?! May I remind some people of the Star Wars expanded universe? In the EU boba became the leader of the mandalorians. And in episode five he is the ONLY one of an elite group of bounty hunters to track down Han Solo. And in the new marvel comic Star Wars: Skywalker strikes and Star Wars: Darth Vader, he tells Vader that he has a son. So boba fett is directly responsible for the ending of Star Wars the empire strikes back.
Why does everyone love Boba so much, he does nothing cool. And he has the lamest death of all time. He says nothing, does virtually nothing, and is only popular because he looks cool.
But please, go ahead. I know what your typing, tell me how he is totally redeemed in the joke of an expanded universe that is the Star Wars EU. - Jackamalio
She actually appears in Empire Strikes back. When C3PO is investigating that room in which he saw TC14 walk out of, he says hello to her and she replies with something offensive. So she does appear in more than one film, BUT she is still pointless
I'm only voting for her because I don't want someone as awesome as Boba Fett to be in third place.
I don't know a lot but the little I know he was fairly pointlessV 2 Comments
What's he doing on this list? He's awesome.
General Grievous Is awesome, he coughs because he is a actual cyborg. He was a reptile but got shot by Count Dooku. Dooku went and rebuild him as a cyborg which explains the lungs and the eyes sawed in III.
What I don't understand is the need to give him a cough. And, of course, robots always get things in their throats, despite the fact that they don't eat. - PositronWildhawk
Watch Star Wars: clone wars, it's a two-part T.V. series from 2003. It explains pretty much everything that happened during the clone wars between episode 2 and 3. PS: not the new T.V. show that plays on Cartoon Network
His head looks like a bike seatV 22 Comments
Jar jar had a tiny part he showed obi wan and qui gon the underwater city but greedo did nothing this is what happened with him AT ALL he's talking with han han talks with him han blows his face up that's it
What does he have to do with anything. He's on screen for about 30 seconds confronting Han then just gets his face blown up. Pointless, didn't do anything
I never thought about it but he kinda is pointless except in the T.V. show an episode where he was a smuggler
Awesome bounty hunter and character.V 12 Comments
Nute gunray is just useless he is a pawn for darth sideous and appears to have no measure of personal desire or will. We are not told his motivations and his person is just cgi useless crap
The racist Chinese guy. Good job that Anakin killed him.V 2 Comments
Why do people dislike c-3po? That's just pervertedly messed up.
Stupid but not pointless at all he has done many things especially in T.V. show
C3PO was really good why do people not like him? - steelers1979
I love C3PO but despise R2,why do people like R2 better? 3PO is the perfect example of a brit. - DapperPickleV 25 Comments
Doesn't really effect anything - CaptainComedy17
He's not pointless he is in 2nd place in the race also tried to kill jar jar
He just added more minutes to the already horrible Phantom Menace
He's on for like 2 minutesV 4 Comments
It seems that the people who voted Rey into the top ten are just people who have sour grapes about the Force Awakens. Rey is actually a better character than Luke in my opinion. The main reason people hate the movie and character and the movie is because she isn't Luke and the movie isn't the originals.
Eh... I do admit I didn't think much of her, but she's the FRIGGING MAIN CHARACTER! Whoever's idiot enough to vote for her in top 20 is either mindless or a pity hater of main female leads
Jumping the gun here. At least wait until the sequel trilogy is finished to form a proper opinion. Personally I thought she was great in the Force Awakens. Yes, I will admit that the film was just a rethread of A New Hope, but for what we saw of Rey, I was pleased.
She kicked Kylie Ren's ass! She's not pointless!V 12 Comments
jabba's little pet monkey-lizard -
That laugh makes fanboy and chum chum look amusing.
Oops I voted for jar jar after forgetting him
Makes Jar Jar look awesome.V 1 Comment
Dude, this guy is UGLY! When I went through my Star Wars phase (at age 7) this guy was one of the only characters I didn't really like from the later movies. I'm getting back into that phase right now, and I'm re-watching all the movies in order. (non-chronological) I just watched numbers 1 and 2, thank goodness he hasn't come along yet. (but he will soon) - RockFashionista
Really? A major domo of jabba? Jabba is the real antagonist, where bib is just a servant hovering around jabba whispering secrets to him as bib plots to kill jabba
This guy is also kinda creepy and pointless. - htoutlaws2012
Who was this guy again?V 3 Comments
What!? Darth Maul killed Obi-Wan's master!
What Darth Maul is not pointless he's awesome, he's the strongest villain in the prequels and in Star Wars clone wars.
He is awesome in Star Wars the clone wars...so there. That's his point...he's awesome
Vader is more awesome.V 9 Comments
I am outraged at whoever thinks Padme's character is pointless. Did she not fight in battles? Did she not give birth to Luke and Leia? If it wasn't for Padme, we wouldn't have Darth Vader. Padme was what let Anakin to the dark side, in fear that he would lose her. It was all about her.
She's bad in the first but good in the others
Can't Luke and Leia's father just be the force?!
Her only purpose was just to be the mom to Luke and Leia other than that she is extremely pointless. So Padmé killing sand people is okay and yet killing younglings is a crime please explain. - AnonymousxcxcV 1 Comment
Do not understand why he needs a part in the second film
Uglier than my sister. Well, maybe not.
There may not be much said about her, but I on the other hand thought that she was one awesome bounty hunter.
Pointless the only point of this character is Assainate padme
Here's something about Jabba that you did not know! I AM DEATHLY AFRAID OF HIM! He's gotta be the creepiest thing you've ever seen.
He was in episode one, four, and six. At least 3 episodes, that makes him pretty relevant.
He should be the first one he is creepy and a criminal
He's gross. He made leia be his sex slave.V 5 Comments
Who's the jackass who added him? For god's sake, he's lost his parents on his birthday and maybe its because you don't know what its like to be a street urchin.
Okay, take him off. He's awesome. And for the one who added this YOUR FACE SUCKS.
He was part of the original rebels! Before a new hope and everything! He played a part by kicking off the entire rebellion
He is not even in the real star wars, that is star wars rebels!
No even in the movies - silky_milkyV 4 Comments
I hate him cause turns to the dark side and betrays his family
He is jerk for going to the dark side
He's not even in the movies. Why do people hate him so much? He's an awesome sith/dark jedi or whatever he is.
I thought that Kylo Ren was the angry spoiled brat that turned over to the dark side. - AnonymousxcxcV 8 Comments
