Top Ten Most Intelligent Star Wars CharactersTherandom
The Top Ten
Orchestrated the demise of the Jedi while also pulling the strings in a huge war on BOTH SIDES, and taking over the Senate!
He was controlling the republic and the empire and when the right time came he took both over and ruled the galaxy.
He was able to hide his identity from the Jedi for years. - Therandom
There will be no episode 1-9 if he doesn't existV 1 Comment
Jar Jar Binks is above pretty much everybody when it comes to cunning if you believe in the "Darth Jar Jar" theory. He was able to trick even the most adept of tricksters, such as Palpatine, into doing what he wanted and ultimately removing themselves from his path towards whatever his goal may be. He has such knowledge of the force he can mind control powerful Jedi such as Qui-Gon, and even Palpatine himself. He plays the part of the fool skillfully, and in doing so allows himself to slowly eliminate his enemies and seize power from the shadows. He is the ultimate shadowy manipulator of Star Wars...and the REAL phantom menace.
I believe George Lucas had planned something sinister for Jar Jar Binks, but ultimately backed out of this idea fearing backlash. If Disney doesn't follow through with this idea, it would be a huge missed opportunity to tie all of the trilogies together and redeem the prequels. All of the pieces are already there to set up the biggest plot twist in film history.
Perhaps the most cunning character in the Star Wars universe, Jar-Jar Binks possesses a seemingly omniscient awareness of the world around him - time and time again using his immense intellect to outsmart and outplay his opponents.

If you had an idea, Thrawn could thwart it. He was masterful, and even though he knew the Empire was evil, he chose it because it was the best choice. Thrawn was so smart that he didn't even need a backup plan (although I'm sure he always had one) because he already knew what you were going to do.
He nearly defeated the new republic and was very tactical and precise.
The Chiss ascendency will have its rise!V 4 Comments
Yoga was really smart. He is considered to be the smartest Jedi. He also decided Luke and made him believe that he wasn't Yoda. - Therandom
Yoda is the smartest but everyone had to go and ruin the list by voting Jar Jar
I hate Jar Jar. Yoda should be 2nd if not 1st.
Dude snoke’s an idiot! He couldn’t even predict that Kylo wasn’t going to kill him
He's a moron why did he decide of all the planets to destroy a very populated and well respected planet what a absolute incompetent commander and why did he destroy scarif base like he killed many imperial troops and officers for no reason he didn't even try to evacuate them, and for what trying to stop the rebels I mean why didn't he try to turn the death star on the rebel base and better yet why wasn't he fired for being a over confident tard?
Another brilliant commander. - EmperorPalpatine
The best military commander.
Outsmarted the SMARTEST Sith in the galaxy. Wounded Anakin, and killed maul, though Anakin is better at killing sith since he killed TWO, where Obi-Wan killed one - O0812528
Obi Wan is smart. He was able to outsmart Anakin on Mustafar. - Therandom
Was probably more gifted in intelligence and beauty than any other person maybe except her beautiful daughter but still she was an queen at 14, and an powerful politician who was loved by many simply due to her loving her people of all races which was the reason she made sure everyone had equal rights.
She became an queen as a young adult and helped end the clone wars politically.
She is very good with persuasion. She also could hide he identity as the queen. - Therandom
First one to become a force ghost and the only one who believed Anakin to be the Chosen One from the start! Should be 2nd in my opinion - JamesNicholls
Sure, Leia may be one of, if not the smartest Star Wars character. She was more intelligent than her friends which is why she was able to destroy Han easy in conversations. However, even though she was intelligent and especially stubborn at times, she still had great love for her husband Han Solo, and her brother Luke Skywalker and would do her best to help them.
She is smart. She just doesn't have a brain as powerful as the rest of these guys. She didn't know she was a Jedi until after return of the Jedi. - Therandom
As Analin he wasn't though. - Therandom
Luke is smart, mainly in episode 6. He was right, he did redeem Vader. - Therandom
He was a child prodigy in the field of engineering. - RockFashionista
He killed two sith and wasn’t bad at first. He only joined the dark side to protect padmé. And I also can’t see why anakin and darth Vader are both on this list. They’re the same person!
He is not smart.
He is stupid. - Camaro6
He cloning bounty hunter Jango Fett to create clone army.He make THE CLONE WARS.He is awesome.
Could have founded The 3d universal mightcentre.
He discovered the inhibitor chip conspiracy and was the first to suspect Krell of being not what he seems. - Camaro6
He was The Leader of an entire army and had to organize the Clone Wars aside of Count Dooku
Smartest Star Wars Character.
Tall, strong, intelligent, and very handsome. He breezed through the ranks of the Empire quicker than anyone else. He even pointed out Vader for the force being overrated before he was cut off by a pressure on his throat. He got the grip off his neck when Tarkin told Vader to stop
