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...

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 stupid

2Boss Nass

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 jar

3Boba 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.

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

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.

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

He was the whole reason the beginning of Return happened.

4TC-14

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 don't know a lot but the little I know he was fairly pointless

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

5Greedo

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.

6General Grievous

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

He is awesome.

7Nute Gunray

The racist Chinese guy. Good job that Anakin killed him.

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

8Sebulba

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 minutes

9C3PO

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

What. Don't worry C 3PO. I care about you not like Star Wars haters.

10ReyRey is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by British actress Daisy Ridley. First appearing as the central character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey is a scavenger who was left behind on the planet Jakku when she was a child, and later becomes involved with the Resistance's ...read more.

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

Even though the supposed central character, she was the one in Force Awakens that you don't think much about after film. Besides her maybe being a Skywalker nothing much else there to talk about. In a film that seems to have less black and white and more grey, she is less interesting.

She's such a Mary Sue

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.

12Bib 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

This guy is also kinda creepy and pointless. - htoutlaws2012

Who was this guy again?

13Darth 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.

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.

14Padme Amidala

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?!

Yep, She sucked

Do not understand why he needs a part in the second film

Uglier than my sister. Well, maybe not.

17Zam 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

18Jabba the HuttJabba the Hutt is a character appearing in George Lucas's space opera film saga Star Wars. He is depicted as a large, slug-like alien.

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.

19Ezra Bridger

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_milky

20Jacen Solo

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.

He doesn't even exist in the movies
