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.

To be fair, Darth Sidious would have never made it to power without Jar Jar...

2General 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

Come on General Grievous is cool

3Boss Nass

Most annoying movie character ever

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.

He's more annoying then jar jar

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

He was not even around long enough for anyone to have an opinion

He made Han Solo even more awesome.

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


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

Anakin made him... but why did he make him so fruity? - VADERtheIMPALER

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

He makes such smartass comments

7Boba Fett

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

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.

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

Cool, but overrated

Doesn't really effect anything - CaptainComedy17

Ugh bo r ing guy

9Nute 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

10Darth Maul

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

Most overrated character. All he did was a random with lord who barely was scene in 15 minutes of the film. His only point was to kill qui gon forcing Obi wan to take anakin as his padawan, which might I add anyone could have done. In reality, he is just an overrated guy with horns and face paint, and a useless double sided lightsaber. Seriously, what is the point to that?

Look he is trying to kill the person who put him here

Lightsaber is cool

The Contenders

11Salacious Crumb

jabba's little pet monkey-lizard -

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

The fact that I don't evenhave a clue who this is makes this person/character pointless. - evoxpisces

13Zam 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


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.

Since the main character in the force awakens is a she, it would probably increase of ratio of people buying bad or good lightsabers from 3:1 to 5:1 and maybe woman will buy the dark one.

17Jacen 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

Lukes Uncle, Does Nothing - CaptainComedy17

Just like Lars Ulrich I suppose

19Elan Sel'Sabagno aka Elan Sleazebaggano

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

Dumb character. He had no purpose and is not important to the story at all.
His line "Wanna buy some death sticks? " STINKS! But why is Greivous, Dooku, Leia, and Boba Fett on the list? People should vote on this guy along with Boss Nass, Owen Lars, and Jabba.

They are cute. I want one to be a main character.

We never see them without their hoods off!
