Top Ten Star Wars Characters

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Kylo Ren Kylo Ren Kyle Rem is a fictional dark warrior strong with the Force, Kylo Ren commands First Order missions with a temper as fiery as his unconventional lightsaber.

Kylo Ren should definitely outrank Maul, R2-D2, and the dead guy Han Solo. Kylo Ren added a much needed emotional weight to episode 7. Instead of having a one-dimensional villain like Darth Maul in the Phantom Menace; JJ Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan created a unique character that people could connect with. A perfect analogy that expresses who Vader is in relation to Kylo Ren is who Superman is in relation of Spiderman. Superman can do anything he wants. He has all the powers, and can now survive death. Spiderman I believe is the peak of what a relatable character should be. He was basically a nerd who was a superhero. Darth Vader could do anything with the force in the original trilogy. Darth Vader could survive multiple things, and no one knew how to defeat him. Kylo Ren is also a relatable character. One could already see the past of Kylo Ren. One can already speculate how emotional and vulnerable Kylo Ren is. What is also very interesting about his character is that he is going ...more

Spoilers: A villain that is cool and badass, but is also a very compelling character unlike Maul or Dooku. He is new, fresh and unique amongst the Sith Lords and other Star Wars villains in that he is the first to display real vulnerability and internal emotional conflict from the start. He is more of a rival to the main protagonists, because he is like the protagonists in that he is not flawless or also some unstoppable warrior. Couldn't be happier with the direction they're taking with this character and was easily my favourite in the Force Awakens.

I see him making this list after Episode 9 ending. I see a potential in him to outrank Darth Vader. I believe Disney won't spoil such an interesting character with flat, conventional solution and won't change him into one-dimensional villain. His indecision, unpredictability, blind faith, kind of fanaticism, unstable character, not fully controlled, but amazing powers, vulnerability, Darth Vader's complex... I can say without end. He gave more internal tear in 15 minutes of screen time, something Anakin didn't do in three movies. Let Kylo be Anakin as Star Wars deserves.

I don't care about what people say: Kylo Ren is a much more complex, interesting and entertaining character than Vader. - QueijoSkywalker

22 Lando Calrissian Lando Calrissian Lando Calrissian is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. He is portrayed by Billy Dee Williams in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, and will be played by Donald Glover in the upcoming standalone Han Solo Star Wars movie.

This guy needs more attention. He was a pretty important character in the Original Trilogy, but he's always in the shadow of other characters like Vader, Luke, Han, and Leia. I think it's because he's not in ANH.

He should of been in the new force awakens movie.

He is mabe a clone and really cool... The end

Hello, what have we have? You cannot be serious about having Lando out of the top 10, come on?! He and Nien Nunb blew up the Death Star...

24 Galen Marek / Starkiller

What is wrong with you people! Galen should be at least in the top five. He is one of the most powerful force wielders in the galaxy! He killed thousands of stormtroopers, killed many Jedi, took down a star destroyer all by himself, nearly killed vader twice, and if it wasn't for Kota, he would have killed the emperor, saving the galaxy! He is the ONLY Star Wars character who did this all! I would like to see him and Luke fight. Starkiller would totally kick his ass! Enough said.

Not many people actually know about Galen because they don't look at the star wars books/comics or games

Galen destroyed many Sith and Jedi, decimated a Star Destroyer, fought Vader and Sidious and also his turning point when he rejoined the Jedi he made the Rebellion possible and the Rebellion crest is his family's crest in honour for his accomplishments.

While it sucks that his character is no longer canon, he is a very likable character. His story is basically about him being raised as a Sith Lord, only to revert to a Jedi and fight the Empire. For those who haven't played Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (Which is an excellent game) here is what his story is about and why he is awesome. Spoilers will be added so don't read if you want to experience the game yourself. Story takes place after Rise of the Empire/Revenge of the Sith.

He was born on Kashyyyk where Vader killed his father (And no, he didn't seduce his father to the Dark Side. He literally killed him with his Lightsaber) and there stood the little adorable Galen. Still a young toddler who looks up at Vader in fear. Because his father was a Jedi, Galen was force-sensitive. Instead of killing Galen, he took him in to become Vader's apprentice. Vader tormented, tortured and abused Galen when raising him and teaching him to use the Dark Side of the Force. Galen feared ...more - Daviddv0601

Star Wars the force unleashed is a good game. The main character is of course Starkiller. He defeated many sith lords and jedi and even his own father! He also defeated his robot, PROXY (A robot which can turn into anyone)!
On his first mission, he blinded an old jedi. After he fought many jedi and sith lords (PROXY), he was able to stop a star destroyer from crashing into him! He can also use lightning!
At first, he is a sith apprentice (There can only 2 sith lords (currently Darth Sidious and Darth Vader). When the Emperor found out, Darth Vader threw him out the window into space and survived! Then later in the game, he becomes more of a hero.
It was Darth Vader who taught him and Starkiller was able to defeat Darth Vader in the end! Also, I want to ask you a question. Would you rather be in the Dark Side or join the Jedi? Because in this game, you can do both! You have a choice in the end to go to the good side, defeat the emperor (which he does) and become a hero or turn ...more

25 Ben Skywalker

I god, I hate this git. He killed his father, the stupid poo

It sounds like this would be Luke's kid, because his name is Ben and he always called Obi-Wan Ben.

Who is this guy? I seriously don't get why this list has characters people don't even know

Ben Skywalker, cousin to Darth Caedus, inspiration for Kylo Ren (otherwise known as Ben SOLO! ) he wasn't in any of the movies, he was in the books

26 Kit Fisto Kit Fisto

Such a cool, laid-back character. my older brother's favourite and he fought against darth sidious ten times as long as two of his fellow council members (them being killed immediately and all). definitely deserves top 15.

This guy looks sick and is one of those background characters that seem whatever but end up doing more.

I'm sorry but what did Kit Fisto do other than look cool? That's what I thought.

Who could ask for a better Jedi? He almost killed grievous and he survived longer than any over Jedi (besides Mace Windew) in the battle against Darth Sidous. He might have SURVIVED that battle because when Mace and Sidous were fighting his body was GONE! I think that is anough proof to show that he survived. HE IS AWESOME!

27 Padme

Padme is superior to Leia in my opinion and one of my favorite characters in Star Wars. For one she is far more beautiful than Leia could ever be and is the best looking female character to ever exist. She is tougher than Leia too as she has the durability advantage such as she fell on her back from 300 feet and was only knocked out for a minute and is taller and stronger. She was so physically and mentally powerful that she survived battles that even Jedi knight and masters died in. Overall she should be in the top 5.

SEXY, strong and smart! Enough said...

Growing up the female characters were my favorite as they were just as strong and influential as the other characters, and Padme has been my favorite as I grew up with the prequels and she was just so beautiful and strong that I would have to say my favorite Star Wars character of all time

Many kids grew up loving Leia and many like me grew up loving Padme. The female leads are always better and Padme is better than Leia in my opinion as she was more powerful and actually had emotions. She also had great love for her husband and her people unlike Leia. She is also gorgeous!

28 Finn Finn

I think Finn is my favorite new addition to the Star Wars roster. He is well acted and has good synergy with the rest of the cast. Unfortunately, he suffers from having his arch rushed for the sake of the plot. For me a characters actions must stem from their stated motivations. In the film his defection from the First Order comes about really quickly and isn't well explained. This guy is presumably indoctrinated to believe the First Order are the good guys and and Resistance is some kind of terrorist organization. So when in the first scene his friend is killed by armed villagers harboring a fugitive, I don't know understand why that garners sympathy for the villagers from him. Yeah, they went on the massacre the villagers after that. I don't know if he left because he didn't like killing people or because he was afraid of being shot like his friend. Cause if it is either of those things then it makes no sense why he is so cavalier about killing scores of the people he ...more

He has so much potential to becoming a Jedi. I hope they do make him one too. - Daviddv0601

Spoiler for those that don't wanna know he betrays the first order and joins the resistance. - htoutlaws2012

Hope he doesn't go rouge like the you-know-who here.

32 Count Dooku Count Dooku

Learn more about him and you will find that he's pretty cool. Used to dislike him myself but like him a lot more now. And he was played be the late and great sir Christopher Lee (RIP)

I believe count dooku is one of the most underrated

Count Dooku's cool, he's underrated.

Dooku deserves more respect

35 IG-88

Anybody who's read the spectacular Star Wars short story "I Am" knows why IG-88 is the coolest Star Wars character. - Ant-Fan

So awesome. He's an assassin droid!

I read that boba fett kills him after he find out that ig_88 was following him.

Jango fett is the best bounty hunter. Not ig88

40 Ahsoka Tano Ahsoka Tano Ahsoka Tano is a character in the Star Wars franchise. Introduced as the Padawan apprentice of Anakin Skywalker, she is a central protagonist of both the 2008 animated film Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the subsequent TV series.

She said "screw you" to the Jedi without turning to the Dark Side.

Dual reverse grip light Sabers! So awesome, but star killer does it better

This girl was EPIK in the clone wars show

One of the best characters for certain. In the top 5 on my list.
