Top Ten Greatest Star Wars Characters

C'mon, you know you love Star Wars. Which character will you vote as your favorite? Find out and vote!

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 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

I wish he could return in the last jedi and stab his lightsaber into Kylo Ren's butthole.

2 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.

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.

Like me you do not- Yoda (Yoda real os. Is here. really - romania

3 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.

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 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!

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

5 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.

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?

You were the chosen one.

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 more.

Character? I didn't see any...

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. - darthvadern

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.

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?

8 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. V 1 Comment
9 Darth Sidious Darth Sidious

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.

10 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.

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

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

The Contenders

11 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.

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

12 General Grievous General Grievous

He has outsmarted everybody the entire film

Army or not you must realize you are doomed.

13 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.

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

(Shoving Princess Anna of Aren-delle from Frozen out of the way/aside/on the ground/floor) Move over, Princess Anna of Aren-delle!

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

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

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.

17 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

No clue who this guy is.

20 Darth Revan Darth Revan

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

No clue who this guy is.
