The Top Ten

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. more.

NO I AM YOUR FATHER and no its not luke I am your father or no luke I am your father it is NO I AM YOUR FATHER go look up the clip its on youtube anyways this guy is my 3rd favorite kylo is my 1st though he is the 2nd main character of the series he has been in almost the whole trilogy just not in the force awakens onwards (though we do get a look at his burnt mask in force awakens) he is such a complex character and I loved him coming back as a force ghost at the end R.I.P Anakin Vader

Every time someone thinks of Star Wars they think of Darth Vader. They think of him when he was picking up that poor rebel solider, demanding for an answer. Or when his mask was taken off in the Return of The Jedi as you watched in shock.

To the dude who said Luke killed vader, that's completely wrong. The emperor electrocuted him before vader threw him off the catwalk

Fun fact: no one knew about vader was going to be luke's father exept George lucas the writers the person who played vader and mark hamil so every one was so shocked at that single line

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.

Yoda is a great character because he is a very powerful Jedi master and dueled darth sidious to a draw in revenge of the sith he was also vqery wise and interesting in the star wars trilogy when he trained Luke

What can I say. He's a little green dude with pointy ears. what's not to like?


Do or do not. There is no try.

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.

I think that Luke Skywalker is awesome because he is the most powerful jedi and Princess Laya too because she is a princess and she is wise and fair so I think they are both awesome and I do know that Darth Vader is their father. The thing I learn from Luke Skywalker is that he killed his father except Princess Laya.

Why the heck isn't Luke Skywalker number one? He killed Vader! He came from being a poor farming to a Jedi Knight.

To the guy that said Luke killed Vader. He's a idiot.

The guys the best Jedi out of all of the movies.

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 is the most famous galactic smuggler. He pilots his infamous ship the Millennium Falcon, helps Luke destroy the Death Star, and makes out with Princess Leia! How better can it get?

Han Solo has got the lot, a smoking girl, a superfast space ship, rakish good looks and classic one liners. What an incredible smell you've discovered!
Dj Trev, Harrogate

You can't beat him. He will always have a worse feeling about things than you will.

Everyone Han Solo is one of the most poplar starwars characters ever come help me please

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.

This guy is the coolest sith ever. He wields a double bladed lightsaber and slayed Qui Gon with it

Now we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi and have our revenge.

He killed Qui-Gon Jinn, he's so cool.

Character? I didn't see any...

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

Obi-Wan is defiantly the BEST. He's always making cunning and humorous remarks. He is one of the only characters to be in all six episodes and service order 66. Sure..he may have started a lot of trouble by taking anakin as his Padawan against the counsels orders but he ment well. He just wanted to please his master. He killed Darth Maul (or so he thought. How does the clone wars end out? Darth Maul dies of course but still...), defeated and could have killed Anakin, AND trained Luke Skywalker. In my opinion, he is AWESOME!

Obi Wan great. Great looks, great lightsabre, great style Great everything. Ewan Macgregor is a so good actor

Obi-Wan is cool, looks good and is a Jedi. Any more questions?

He is, and will always be, the classic Jedi.

Darth Sidious Sheev Palpatine (also known by his Sith identity Darth Sidious and publicly as Senator Palpatine, then Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, and later Emperor Palpatine) is a fictional character and one of the primary antagonists of the Star Wars franchise, mainly portrayed by Ian McDiarmid.

Darth Sidious is the most in-depth character in the series. He fools the jedi council by acting like a "kind old man" when he's really the most evil person in the universe, as well as the most powerful. Even when fighting Yoda, it's a stale mate. Darth Vader only gets to him by surprise.
By the way, when I say he's my favorite character, that does not mean I think he's likable.
Darth Sidious is portrayed best in the T.V. series Star Wars the Clone Wars. They show his brilliance and cruelty. When he kills Savage Opress and defeats Darth Maul in a matter of minutes (and they are both very powerful) that shows his skill with the lightsaber. Also he's really cool with two lightsabers.
Darth Sidious was one of the only good parts about the three movies about the Old Republic. Anakin was whiney, Padme was annoyingly portrayed, and Jar Jar was the worst character in Star Wars. Period. The only other really good character was Obi-Wan Kanobi, and only in the second and third.

Now young Skywalker you will die.

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.

He's also the rudest and most vulgar of all star wars characters, they beep out everything he says! He can also make every situation a whole lot better.

He flies he is just plain awesome. He is a robot that traveled with 2 of the best jedi ever. whats not to like? He is also amazingly cute

Everyone has said this but I'll say it again- R2-D2 is so cute! Why isn't he number 1?

Adorable and helpful; should be in at least the top 3.

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

You are under arrest my lord.

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.

He is by far the best one he should at least be in the top 5!

Roar! Roar! I love Chewie! He's my favorite character!

An ape man with a gun, enough' said, DRR!

Kannan jarrus is the number 1 Rebel and a bird

The Contenders

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.

This is by far the coolest bounty hunter ever. He has a awesome ship, an awesome voice, and an awesome jet pack! Take that Darth Vader

My favorite by far. I love his guns, gadgets, and helmet. He is the
Best bounty hunter in all of star wars! Should be number 1!

He is the coolest person who ever lived in star wars. He came out of the sarlacc pit he should be number one

Put Captain Solo in the cargo hold.

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.

She is as iconic as Vader and as cool as Han. She is a gorgeous, intelligent woman who would have no problem at yelling at her male allies. We all love her.

Let's get our beautiful, independent princess to number 1

Why is she so low? She should be in the top ten.

She should be in the top 10.

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.

He has outsmarted everybody the entire film

Army or not you must realize you are doomed.

Come on. He was a good villain.


He is clearly the funniest character in the Star Wars universe.

I have a bad feeling about this.

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'm not voting for anakin, I just wanted to write this comment. He's awesome, but I just wanted to say that he should be merged with Darth Vader, since they are the same person.

Technically shouldn't he be number 1 too cause he is darth vader

I love how he looks in ep.1... So hard to belive that he turned to the dark side

Well from my point of view the Jedi are evil.

Plo Koon

Plo Koon wins because of his look, his voice, he's a jedi master, has a cool name, and has an awesome presence about him that no other jedi have.

He's the coolest person in star wars. I also like Boba fett. I don't like how he died.

He doesn't have any lines like at all.

He's awesome and badass. best jedi ever

Grand Moff Tarkin Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe. Tarkin was Governor of the Outer Rim territories, and eventually earned the rank of Grand Moff in the Galactic Empire. Tarkin was also in charge of the production of the Death Star. Tarkin is killed when the Death Star is more.
Padmé Amidala

Great character. She was a great person. She was also so hot. Include her in battlefront 2. The force choke did not kill her and she died loving anakin. I wish we could have got a novel or comics where she lived through Ep.3

Smart, stunning beauty, interesting and is an great improvement over Leia.

I love padme amidala she was such a great chareters but sadly she's dead rip padme amidala

Beautiful, Intelligent. She's everything

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.

Wow I can't believe he wasn't even on the list! This guy is awesome! Okay maybe he got some bonus points because he was played by the amazing Christopher Lee but Dooku really is a cool character.

Count Dooku sucks. Who says he's great.

Christopher Lee!

Director Orson Krennic As director of Advanced Weapons Research for the Imperial military, Orson Krennic is obsessed with the completion of the long-delayed Death Star project.
Darth Revan Revan is a fictional character in BioWare's Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic video game. The character may be either male or female, though Revan is canonically male and follows the game's light-side path. He also has his own Old Republic book in which he is a male human, turned Jedi, and turned more.

The legend who came back to life twice! As a jedi and a sith!

Qui Gon Jinn

If he survived the battle with darth maul. Palpatines plans would have failed. Qui-gon was the one with true jedi views and anakin was supossed to show and prove those views to the other jedi.

I want to train Darth Vader.

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.

Just cause he's hated so much he deserves to be loved on this list at least.

Who the hell put this here. That guy is a idiot. He slould be banned from top tens.

Mesa be liking to ruin franchise.

Give him some love

Cad Bane Cad Bane is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, created by George Lucas, Dave Filoni and Henry Gilroy as a recurring antagonist voiced by Corey Burton in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Of all the characters the recent show introduced, none were as awesome as Cad Bane. He is reminiscent of The Man With No Name from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. No bounty hunter without a surname of Fett has been so menacing, so intimidating, so chillingly efficient. He may not have had too big of an impact on the big picture, but he was truly the best character the franchise has come up with. Not the most iconic, but certainly the best.
