Favorite Star Wars Characters


The Top Ten

1 Darth Vader Darth Vader Darth Vader was the original dark lord for Star Wars. Darth Vader ruled with both fear and aggression. Originally Anakin Skywalker a young Jedi who was then seduced by the dark side of the force by Chancellor Palpatine/Darth Sidious. Vader had his limbs cut off by his jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi leaving ...read more.

He's a tragic antihero and I LOVE this kind of characters. And after all the whole movie is about him, about his destiny. He really is the chosen one - he did kill the Sith lord in the end. And that thing with the dark side... Remember it was all done to save his love. Well that's why a Jedi must not fall in love

Dark side, he's my friend...

He is the best character ever, no one in the Star Wars universe can ever be better than Darth Vader, not even the new characters that will come up in the 8th movie and more

Bad at is the best. He is truly a badass but he’s also got a human side (Anakin) which made him dark in the first place. No Star Wars without Vadar

2 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.

''You were the Chosen One! You were supposed to destroy the Sith, not join them! ''

I have to say, he is my favorite character in all of Star Wars. I was VERY sad when he died. Before Darth Vader messed everything up, Obi-Wan was noble and sarcastic sometimes. He probably had countless adventures with Anakin between episodes 1 and 2.

I wish they had a episode or something on Obi-Wan and Anakin's adventures!

He'a the best Jedi that EVER lived! My favourite character in the whole saga!

Legend! as simple as that

3 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.

"Fourth on the list I am? Why rank me so low? Short I am, but kick your butt in lightsaber fight, I will! Challenge me if you must, or better yet, for me you must vote! "
-Yoda. (Yes, me it really is)

Yoda is the most epic character in Star Wars

When he first appears in empire I died laughing he's so funny. He is also an epic almost unstoppable jedi.

Come on its Yoda one of the most powerful Starwars characters ever born have u seen all his fights please more people vote for my bro Yoda he a champoin and rember let the force be with u just wanted to vote for Yoda I like dark side better but VOTE please FOR YODA THE FORCE MAY BE what U

4 Han Solo Han Solo Han Solo is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed in films by Harrison Ford. In the original film trilogy, Han and his co-pilot, Chewbacca, become involved in the Rebel Alliance which opposes the Galactic Empire.

The funny character in Star Wars. Han Solo is awesome. He didn't have to do everything he's done to help. It was his choice. He saved Luke's life. - Jammer196

Harrison Ford. Defense rests

The sheer awesomeness of Harrison Ford trumps all!

He is really cool and looks like my daddy

5 Luke Skywalker Luke Skywalker Luke Skywalker is a fictional character appearing as the central protagonist of the original film trilogy, and as a supporting character in the sequel trilogy of the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas.

Not only is he amazingly gorgeous, he's played with such an amazing range and depth of emotion by the inimitable Mark Hamill. Why is he not #1? THAT's IMPOSSIBLE!

He is what every great hero strives to be. May the force be with you

He should be number one after all he has been the main character in almost all of the movies

He’s the best. Han and Vader are always the default picks by people but Luke is the true badass hero.

6 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 ...read more.

Darth maul is good but he's only in one episode so that's why

He is by far the best he should be higher on the list

Darth Maul is awesome! He is the best of all

This character didn’t deserve to die as early as he did. Deserved more screen time.

7 R2-D2 R2-D2 R2-D2 or Artoo-Detoo is a fictional robot character in the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas, who appears in the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, and the sequel trilogy.

Aka God. Watch careful and you'll see everything unfold in star wars the way it does because of d2.

He should have his own cartoon

The only character to appear in his true form for all six movies. Clearly the main character of the entire saga.
-Also saves countless lives over and over

Biggest hero of every episode... Nothing would ever have been the same with out good ol' R2!

8 Princess Leia Princess Leia Princess Leia Organa, later known as General Leia Organa, is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed in films by Carrie Fisher.

I hope Princess Leia does more in Star Wars 8. She didn't do much in Force Awakens although it was good to have her back. Maybe she can face Kylo, not in a Battle or fight of course, but trying to get him back.

I think Princess Leia should do more in future Star Wars movie because in star was the force awakens she didn't do much. I hope she will be a main character again

Princess Leia all the way! (Swinging the clenched, balled up fists right at Princess Anna from Frozen as hard as possible) Take that, Princess Anna from Frozen!

Why are we using the Disney Infinity image. - Extractinator04

9 Chewbacca Chewbacca Chewbacca, nicknamed "Chewie", is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. He is a Wookiee, a tall, hirsute biped and intelligent species from the planet Kashyyyk. Chewbacca is the co-pilot of the Millenuim Falcon, and is best friends with Han Solo.

Oh, man I used to have a Lego Chewbacca. I cannot seem to find him. He was the leader of all my other Lego men... Such good times. This bear thing deserves number 1!

He rips people's arms off and asks no questions...because he can't. He is a loyal killing machine that you definitely want on your side

He talks funny and he has feelings. He is a good loyal friend.

So cute

10 Emperor / Chancellor Palpatine

The best and by far the most powerful sith lord ever! - villainlover

He's Powerful!?!

Total D bag.

Read some starwars books mate, darth bane, or even darth plageuis could whoop this guy's ass

The Contenders

11 C-3PO C-3PO

"Oh goodness gracious me! " C-3PO is hilarious. Should be higher.

There is no droid in the galaxy like this one.

Seriously he's ninth!?! -guy ranting

Funny droid

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.

Why is she so low? She is a hero. She is my favourite characters

She is Luke, Han and Leia in one character.

Best new character by far.

Why is she not number one

14 Qui-Gon Jinn Qui-Gon Jinn Qui-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 did what he though was right, not what he was told to think was right, and without him we would never have Anakin or Luke (and Obi-Kenobi for that matter really! )

He had his own views on the force and was willing to betray the council to do what he believed was right.

Without Qui Gon Jinn we wouldn't have Darth Vader, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker

He sucked!?! -guy ranting

15 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.

He's badass, plus his quotes are more awesome than Vader's at some points;

"Reality doesn't care if you believe it. "
"Rocket launcher. And what it does, if you know how to work it, is kill a lot of creatures. At once. At a nice long distance away. "
"You can run, but you'll only die tired. "
"I got bored just counting money. "
"Just wanted to remind you, Solo, that my personal fight was always with the Jedi. You were nothing more than cargo. "
"You should learn to shoot first, Solo. "
"Never use your kids, scumbag. Never. "
"Family runs deeper than Bloodlines. "
"I kill you just for the pleasure. "
"Dead or alive, I get paid either way. "
"I can't believe I'm getting paid for this. "

Boba is way better then R2-D2 he is the best, and C3PO you got to be kidding me! Boba Fett RULES!

How is he below the top ten? He's my all time favorite. Boba Fett is flipping awesome! - icecreammanjb

Boba fett is one of my favorite star wars characters he's cool and he should have his own movie and animated T.V. show and I believe he was just following orders

18 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 is so intuitive and can find her way out of problems easily. She started put annoying but grew on me after every season of The Clone Wars.

How is she so low...how is she lower than Rey?!

How is my favorite character so low.

Best character ever! How is she lower than people like Rune Hakko who I don't know who they even are?

20 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.

Just a little beefy chunk of stomach fat and slime. Yes please.

No no no! How is he on the list?! - villainlover

Jabba for the win!

Ew no - ParkerFang
