Top 10 Most Disappointing Star Wars Prequel Characters


The Top Ten

1 Jar Jar Binks Jar Jar Binks Jar Jar Binks is a fictional character from the Star Wars saga created by George Lucas. A major character in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, he also has a smaller role in Episode II: Attack of the Clones, and a one-line cameo in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and the television series more.

He wasn't disappointing because the expectations for Jar Jar were already low. Nobody expected Jar Jar Binks to be a good character. - DarthPhasey

Heres a story: One time when I was at Disney World's Hollywood Studios, I was waiting in line at Star Tours. As me and my brother were getting in line, he jokingly said a looked like Jar Jar Binks. When a passed an animatronic with a screen, it detected me and said "Hey!, you remind me of someone, Jar Jar Binks! " I doubt that I actually look like Jar Jar, but that was still wicked hilarious.

I'm anxiously awaiting for Jar Jar: A Star Wars Story, where he becomes the next Sith Lord and sets up the fourth trilogy. - nerffan8000

Was supposed to appeal to kids, but even as a kid I didn't like him. - PageEmperor

2 Boba Fett Boba Fett Boba 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.

I like him, they just never use him and they're never going to since they canceled his spin off movie

If anyone is deserving of having a Star Wars Anthology film, hands down, my vote goes to Boba Fett. He was woefully underdeveloped in the prequels and we haven't even seen much of him in the Original Trilogy either. And considering the amount of fans he has, its safe to say Boba deserves some love and appreciation from the Star Wars team. - CrimsonShark

This character had basically no origin story and no good sub plot and served no purpose to the character. - iliekpiez

I mean... he looks cool - NightJinx

3 General Grievous General Grievous General Grievous is a fictional character and antagonist in the Star Wars franchise. He served as the Supreme Commander of the Confederacy of Independent Systems' Droid Armies during the Clone Wars.

I watched the Star Wars prequel before the clone wars series and was confused. I never heard of Grievous before, he wasn't introduced at all, he was just there. Well, the same goes for Darth Maul who was pretty forgettable and didn't really speak that much. But General Grievous just appeared in the last movie of the prequel series and then he died. You actually have to watch the Clone Wars T.V. show to learn something about him and that's a no go. If you take villains from the series who play a big role in the movie, at least you could show more of them in the movie so even those who didn't watch the series, will know who he is.

Cool design, but such a boring character.

A character who was vital in the Clone Wars was in it for about 10 minutes before he died. No backstory. - iliekpiez

4 Kit Fisto Kit Fisto Kit Fisto Is a Jedi from the Star Wars universe who appeared in Star Wars, Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars, Episode III: Revenge Of the Sith, and also appeared in the TV show, Star Wars the Clone Wars,


I don't know who Kit Fisto, Plo Koon, Saesee Tiin, Shaak Ti, and Ki-Adi-Mundi are. - TheFourthWorld

5 Anakin Skywalker Anakin Skywalker Anakin Skywalker is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. He appears in the original trilogy as a main and pivotal antagonist serving the Galactic Empire, while his past as Anakin Skywalker and the story of his corruption are the focus of the prequel trilogy.

Sure people hate Anakin, but the actor Jake Lloyd had so many problems. That he didn't deserve all that fanboy backlashing and being bullied so much. We must blame George Lucas for what he did to poor Jake. Hayden Christensen didn't do well. His performance sucked so harder than Jake's. - asantalo

It is so obvious. I mean wow Lucas messed this up bad. The origins were awful and should have been darker. I saw him as an annoying 10 year old and then a brat. - iliekpiez

It was predicted he would turn eventually. - NightJinx

"Now this is pod racing! " - Not_A_Weeaboo

6 Plo Koon Plo Koon

Easiest Jedi to beat

7 Shaak Ti Shaak Ti
8 Saesee Tiin Saesee Tiin

Um...who is this guy?

Did he just die THAT QUICKLY?

9 Jango Fett Jango Fett Jango Fett is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, created by George Lucas. He made his debut in the 2002 film Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, where he was portrayed by actor Temuera Morrison.

This dude has so much potential - myusernameisthis

10 Aayla Secura Aayla Secura

The Contenders

11 Padme Amidala Padme Amidala Padmé Amidala is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, appearing in the prequel trilogy portrayed by actress Natalie Portman.

She is ugly dawg

Natalie Portman actually said Star Wars ruined her career interestingly, I wonder if the way her character was written was a reason as to why... - SailorSedna

This character whilst arguably the best in III, showed little struggle or interesting things about her in I or II - iliekpiez

12 Qui Gon Qui Gon

One of the best prequel characters, very well written and the fact he did not get a proper origin story dissapointed me personally. - iliekpiez

13 Yoda Yoda Yoda is a fictional character in the Star Wars space opera franchise created by George Lucas, first appearing in the 1980 film The Empire Strikes Back.

No character development what so ever. He was basically the same as Mace Windu and we got no origin story. I hope for a Yoda movie. - iliekpiez

I did like his wise personality. - NightJinx

What! How dare you!

A Yoda movie would be awesome. - SailorSedna

14 Ki-Adi-Mundi Ki-Adi-Mundi

You barely see him in anything related to star wars

15 Count Dooku Count Dooku Count Dooku of Serenno, from the House of Dooku is a fictional character from the Star Wars franchise, appearing in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith as a primary and minor antagonist respectively. He was portrayed by Christopher Lee and more.

He just said menacing things and flung a lightsaber around and was not a constructive villain. - iliekpiez

Oh, you mean Count Dookie. - NightmareCinema

16 Darth Maul Darth Maul Darth 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. Darth Maul first appeared in Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace, and has also appeared in The more.

They keep bringing him back just for fan-service - myusernameisthis

Darth Maul was so popular, that the franchise acknowledged the disappointment of the fans and bought him back on T.V. shows set after The Phantom Menace. The result: Maul was given more character and personality and in the end, got a second film role in Solo.

Also, because of this Maul has actually become one of the most complex and interesting characters in the Star Wars franchise. - CrimsonShark

He's got an interesting enough design, and an original, if gimmicky, lightsaber, but he's ultimately boring and bland. - OomlaGuhmaGagh

He is a great character. My dissapointment lies with the fact that he was not the main villain of the trilogy. - iliekpiez

17 Mace Windu Mace Windu Mace Windu is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, portrayed by actor Samuel L. Jackson in the prequel films.

A jedi who could have a backstory and in the fact he was not a vital character proved his downfall as he just fought. Like Yoda. - iliekpiez

18 Jabba's Snacks Jabba's Snacks

So disappointing...they didn't even try to fight back...

19 Commander Cody Commander Cody

He has a much better role in the T. V show

20 Qi’ra Qi’ra

I thought she was only shown in Solo: A Star Wars Story... - TheFourthWorld

Who the heck is this - TheInsomniac

21 Jabba the Hutt Jabba the Hutt Jabba 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.

Hahaa. I hate him. I even call him jabba the butt. He is so gross.

22 Obi Wan Kenobi Obi Wan Kenobi Obi-Wan Kenobi is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, played by Sir Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor.

What, this guy was awesome! - NightJinx

He was the only good character. - Not_A_Weeaboo

This character was a bland padwan in Phantom Menace and McGregor did not do the character any justice. - iliekpiez

Obi Wan was easily the best character in the Prequel Trilogy, and one of the most endearing characters in Star Wars.

Not to mention he's one of the ultimate meme goldmines you could come across. - CrimsonShark
