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.

It kind of goes without saying

2Boss Nass

He's just as bad as Jar Jar. He has the stupid "Jaw Flap."

Most annoying movie character ever

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

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

4Boba 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

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

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.

He certainly isn't pointless, though he doesn't have a whole lot of screen time

5General 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

Grievous had potential to be cool and actually was in some of the clone wars stuff, but he was just lame in the movie.

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.

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

C3PO was really good why do people not like him? - steelers1979

Who says C3PO is a pointless Star Wars characters I mean he's awesome!

Other than constantly complain, what exactly IS his point?

V17 Comments

Ugh bo r ing guy

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 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.

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.

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

Yes! The main character is pointless! Just like Luke Skywalker and Anakin Skywalker were pointless!

?Qui-Gon JinnQui-Gon Jinn is a fictional character in the Star Wars saga, portrayed by Liam Neeson and is one of the main protagonists in the 1999 film Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.

He's like the real obi wan all he did could have been done by obi wan

The Contenders

jabba's little pet monkey-lizard -

Makes Jar Jar look awesome.

12Jabba 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.

Jabba The Hut sucks! He's so pointless. He should be #1 plus he's worst than Jar Jar binks.

No I love Jabba he's awesome!

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!

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?

What Darth Maul is not pointless he's awesome, he's the strongest villain in the prequels and in Star Wars clone wars.

Random overrated villain

14Bib 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?

16Padme 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.

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. - Anonymousxcxc

Uglier than my sister. Well, maybe not.

18Zam 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

19Jacen Solo

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

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 is jerk for going to the dark side

He doesn't even exist in the movies

20Ezra 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 is not even in the real star wars, that is star wars rebels!
