Favorite Star Wars Characters

The Top Ten

1 Darth Vader Darth Vader is a Star Wars character and the main antagonist of the first three original Star Wars films and the main protagonist of the Star Wars prequel trilogy under his original name Anakin Skywalker. He had been trained as a Jedi but defected to the Sith lord and Galactic Chancellor Palpatine. ...read more.

You would be lying if you said you didn't imitate him at least once a day. Darth Vader is so cool and we are so glad their is such an awesome villain around!

Badass, ruthless and one of the most tragic characters of the saga. The whole saga surrounds him and he was a legendary jedi when he was younger. One of the best (or could be the best) villains of all time!

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

From a slave to a dark lord, he really has a high potential of rage and anger which makes him a perfect villain. Also I am your father twist was kinda outstanding, especially in the history of movies and fandoms.

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

Wise, strong and a real trollster. With his teachings and advice, he made both Anakin and Luke more aware of the force.

''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!

3 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.

Cool he is. Yoda is so funny and just Great! It is so fun to watch tiny yoda kicking butts!

The most show Jedi ever. He and the power are strong. He has taught padawans for generations and has, among other things, given advice to Anakin and Luke.

"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

4 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.

Han Solo is very funny and just overall cool! How can you not love his awesome personality?

Han solo is my favorite character he is just so cool and his ship the millennium falcon is super awesome

The coolest pilot in the entire galaxy! Since he was young in the streets of Corellia, he has had an incredible talent for flying ships and being adventurous

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.

5 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.

The hero of the original trilogy. He is brave, smart and has evolved greatly, just like his father did (except the turnover to the dark side). One of the most legendary jedis.

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!

Forever the iconic center of Star Wars. He was the one I identified with in 1977 and, 42 years later, he still is!

How is Luke not in the top 3 at least?! Han Solo ranked higher than Luke...you're kidding right?

6 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

He's awesome! Why isn't he on top?!?

7 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.

Princess Leia has such a great personality! It is fun to watch her turn down solo and just be very cute, brave and sassy!

Over praised for nothing. She is why I don't love Star Wars! What did she do! She should be higher for another list... THE WORST CHARACTERS LIST!

The best! Such a good role model, strong female protagonist is nice to see

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.

8 Rey Rey 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 ...read more.

Man. someone who can kill a trained dude in a lightsaber duel without picking one up before is too powerful to be true. I love her personality, she should be up at, like, 2

Rey is a great insperation and it is very fun to watch her life unfold, she makes it feel like what's happening to her is happening to us.

Why's she not one? She's sexy and hot and kicks ass. You have no idea how much satisfaction I got watching her make Kylo Ren cry and whine in the interrogation scene and the proceeding to kick his ass in the forest. Did he seriously think he stood a chance against someone as sexy and badass as Rey.

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

9 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.

Such a lovable character and it is very fun to watch chewy and solo together.

chewie is probably my second favorite character but I just wanted to say that Iā€™m confused on why rey is above him on this list.

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

10 C-3PO

Slightly annoying but VERY funny! He is (in my opinion) one of the funniest star wars charcters.

Saying c3po isn't a good character is like saying earlier Metallica is worse than modern Metallica

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

There is no droid in the galaxy like this one.

The Contenders

11 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

He appears in Movie 1 Clone Wars Han Solo movie and rebels

12 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.

Anyone with 4 arms and 4 lightsabers is awesome!

He looks badass in his single movie appearance, but his character was done a disservice in Revenge of the Sith. Watch the 2003 Clone Wars animated series, read online about his tragic backstory, and then maybe you'll understand why he's a badass in more than just looks. And how the hell can he be below Jar Jar?!

I think General Grievous is one of the best Jedi killers. Also is definitely my favourite Star Wars character I want him to return a lot he is awesome.

Most terrifying villain I've ever seen.

13 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.

I will always think of Anakin as that inaccoent little boy from tatueen

Of course! He is one the most legendary jedis! If he was more patient and less controlled by feelings he could be one of the most or the most strongest jedi ever.

Ugh such an annoying character. In the first movie, he was annoying, in the second movie he was going through changes, and in the third he was "If you're not my friend, then you're my enemy! " Sigh. I'm not saying I hate Darth Vader, I just hate Anakin (if that makes sense)

He was terrible in phantom menace and attack of the clones but AMAZING in the clone wars and rots

14 Revan

He is the most important and most badass character of his time

15 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 ā€“ Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III ā€“ Revenge of the Sith as a primary and minor antagonist respectively. He was portrayed by Christopher Lee and ...read more.

Dooku is a with lord and the only reason Anakin killed him is because he under estimated anakins power and Darth sidious tolled dooku not to kill Anakin he should be at least top five number one to me

Such a lame jedi

Sith lol

Yes, yes, he's dumb. Like the JarJar comment! :D

16 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.

The best character of the saga in my opinion. Much more developed and interesting than the new ones... My god Ahsoka you are the best!

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

How is my favorite character so low.

17 Emperor / Chancellor Palpatine

Love the way duels in the prequels and his face expressions lol

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

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

He's Powerful!?!

18 BB-8 BB-8 or Beebee-Ate is a droid character in the Star Wars franchise, first appearing in the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Bb-8 is the cutest droid ever. He should be at a way higher place.

Cute r2 knockoff. Then again force awakens was a cute star wars knockoff.

Best droid ever! Totally cute and funny

He's a complete ripoff! -guy ranting

19 Darth Vitiate
20 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!

He is really awesome. Just look at him! It doesn't even require explanation

21 Wittin
22 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 ā€“ The Phantom Menace.

The jedi who started its all, he was in the comics one of the most powerful characters and was relevant even after his death

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

23 Satele Shan
24 Bastila Shan
25 IG-88

He's a 17th tier character why is he even on the list!?! -guy ranting

He was in it for 7 seconds

Super cool with a ton of different weapons, and he also helped almost take over the galaxy as a key part of the Droid Revolution led by IG-88A. He also humiliated Olag Greck and escaped just when Greck thought he caught him. He also survived and escaped when he got shot by several stormtroopers and was hit by a paint bomb by Sabine Wren.
