Top Ten Most Intelligent Star Wars Characters

The Top Ten

1 Jar Jar Binks 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 ...read more.

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.

Jar Jar very smart.
