Top Ten Most Pointless Star Wars Characters

The characters that Star Wars could have done without.

The Top TenXW

1Jar Jar

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...

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.

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.

Jar jar is rubbish, I don't get why darth maul and leia are on here

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

Was he added so it takes time away - simpsondude

He made Han Solo even more awesome.

3Boss Nass

Most annoying movie character ever

Looks like a giant frog!

He doesn't even look like one of the Gungans.

V5 Comments

Doesn't really effect anything - CaptainComedy17

He should be torn to pieces by obiwan

Ugh bo r ing guy

5General Grievous

What's he doing on this list? He's awesome.

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

Such a great looking villain gets killed to easy, worst villain since dooku.

He coughs because Mace WIndu crushes his chest after Grievous is kidnapping the chancellor

C3Po was fussy but he was still a hero. Tc-14 is only in for like a minute at the beginning of The Phantom menace and thinks she's in charge during her conversation with the Jedi. - cameronbrown

7Jacen Solo

He is worse then jar jar

I hate him cause turns to the dark side and betrays his family

Worst charcter enough said

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.

V6 Comments

Get him off of here he is a hero.

Why do people dislike c-3po? That's just pervertedly messed up.

C3po was the one who got the two's to fight with the rebel

He is annoying as hell

9Bib Fortuna

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

Jabba the Hutt's bodyguard (or whatever the heck he is. )

10Salacious Crumb

jabba's little pet monkey-lizard -

The Contenders

11Nute Gunray

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

12Elan Sel'Sabagno aka Elan Sleazebaggano

Wanna buy some deathsticks? - VADERtheIMPALER

He was so brief you can't put him on the list. It's almost like putting an extra on this list.

He is weird and pointless. Vote for him and salacious crumb

Oh come on this scene was funny.

14Boba Fett

The only point of the character was to deliver Han Solo to Jabba the Hutt, in 'The Empire Strikes Back. ' So why he has such a huge fan base is mind boggling.

Never even kills anyone and thats his entire purpose - CaptainComedy17

I think the reason they love him is because of his appearance.

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

16Ton Ton

Why did they just ride them everywhere whereas a ship would have got there faster and wouldn't die in the cold, and it's equipped with weapons that a ton ton would look stupid with.
OK, I'm starting to sound like a crazy nerd. I may be a part nerd, but not a crazy one, so I'll just stop talking. - PositronWildhawk

I actually wondered this myself... but I assume Mr Lucas wanted to incorporate the guts spewing out and crawling inside for warmth effect.


Lukes Uncle, Does Nothing - CaptainComedy17

Just like Lars Ulrich I suppose

Just like Lars Alexanderson from Tekken.

18Darth Maul

What!? Darth Maul killed Obi-Wan's master!

Maul was only created to look cool, he serves no real point (like many of the new characters in phantom menace) and to make him worse, he somehow survived being cut in half and fought in the clone wars.

Who put this on the list? He is one of tge most important villians besides darth vader and the sith

19Zam Wesell

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
