The Top Ten Greatest Star Wars Characters

1 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 more.

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

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.

Darth vader is a little scary

Force Chokes Jar Jar

2 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.

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

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

Do or do not. There is no try.

He's pretty great.

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

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.

He's my favorite movie character

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

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 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?

You can't beat him. He will always have a worse feeling about things than you will. - cbrann10

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

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

5 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

Character? I didn't see any...

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

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

6 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!

he is in the two best duels - moose4life19

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

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

7 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.

8 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 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

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.

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.

9 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.

10 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! - TheChosen1

Roar! Roar! I love Chewie! He's my favorite character! - 1029384756qpwoeiruty

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

Kannan jarrus is the number 1 Rebel and a bird

The Contenders

11 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

Put Captain Solo in the cargo hold.

Best Star Wars character

not someone to piss off

12 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.

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

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

She should be in the top 10.

13 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.

Come on. He was a good villain.

He has outsmarted everybody the entire film

Army or not you must realize you are doomed.

14 C3-PO

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

I have a bad feeling about this.

15 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.

He's one of the greatest Jedi knights ever!

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

Well from my point of view the Jedi are evil.

16 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. - CaptainComedy17

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

17 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.
18 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. - evoxpisces

Count Dooku sucks. Who says he's great.

Christopher Lee!

19 Padmé Amidala

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

Why did she die! It's not fair!

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

Beautiful, Intelligent. She's everything

20 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!

21 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.
22 Qui Gon Jinn

I want to train Darth Vader.

23 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.

Mesa be liking to ruin franchise.

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

Give him some love

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

24 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.

25 Bib Fortuna
26 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.

A giant slug does not deserve to be on the list.

Jabba The Hut sucks. Worst characters ever.

Jedi poodoo!

27 Nute Gunray Nute Gunray was the Viceroy of the Trade Federation. He was involved with the blockade of the planet Naboo. He also was a member of the Separatist Council, and was murdered by Darth Vader on Mustafar.

She can't do that. Shoot her, or something.

28 Rancor

This monster does not deserve to be on the list.


29 Kylo Ren Kyle Ren is a fictional Sith lord, who is strong with the Force. Kylo Ren commands the First Order with a temper as fiery as his unconventional lightsaber. His debut was in 2015's Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens. Ren's real identity is Ben Solo, the son of Han Solo and Princess Leia. He was trained more.

Sebulba, Jabba, and Count Dooku are above Lando and Benny..? Sad life...

30 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.
31 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.

33 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.

Whoever put Yoda on the list is a boss and as a matter of fact Yoda is a boss too

A powerful Force-user who lived during the era of the Galactic Empire, Marek originated from the Wookiee home planet of Kashyyyk as the sole offspring of two Jedi Knights—Mallie and Kento Marek—who deserted more.

I mean how can you make a list him being there, he is the best

37 Jyn Erso Jyn Erso is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by English actress Felicity Jones in the 2016 film Rogue One.
