Top Ten Most Pointless Star Wars Characters

The characters that Star Wars could have done without.
The Top Ten
1 Jar Jar

Now I don't watch Star Wars, but HOLY COW, this character is one the UGLIEST things I've ever laid my eyes on. I mean look at him, he's hideous. His face makes me want to vomit every time I look at it. Plus, he's supposed to appeal to kids, but I don't really understand how children are going find this character funny when they can clearly how physically unappealing this character is. They'd rather run away crying in fear and disgust! Bleugh!

No, let me explain. Without Jar jar, Qui Gon Jinn and Obi Wan Kenobi wouldn't have found the Gungan City which provided the submarine that transports them to Naboo, in which Padme rode the spaceship to Coruscant, while finding Anakin. If Jar jar wasn't alive they wouldn't have found Anakin. Without Anakin discovering his powers, there wouldn't have been any Darth Vader. So if Jar jar wasn't alive the Original Trilogy wouldn't have happened. Huh.

Ok all of the characters on this list have purpose. But Jar jar was put in the movies just for small children's amusement. I do want to point out that jar jar changed the fate of the galaxy when he rallied the senate to give palpatine all the emergency in the clone wars. Without that there would be no clone wars, no murder of the Jedi, no rise of the sith, no empire, no rebellion...

I heard that he was meant to be 'the next Chewbacca', like what? Chewbacca doesn't talk. And if it did then I'm pretty sure he would not spout out any of the pointless dribble that Jar Jar Bink's does. If he was made to appeal to stupid little children I'm pretty sure it didn't work, because I hated him as a child and I despise him even more now. Congrats on ruining the movies for millions of fans Jar Jar, gold star.

2 Boss Nass

He's just as bad as Jar Jar. He has the stupid "Jaw Flap."

I agree he is annoying, but he did provide a ship for jar jar, qui gon, and Obi wan, as well as an army to fend off the battle droids, so he is kind of important to episode one.

Looks like a giant frog!

Most annoying movie character ever

3 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.

Let's get something straight I AM NOT VOTING. I am writing this comment. What the hell is boba fett doing on this list?!?! May I remind some people of the Star Wars expanded universe? In the EU boba became the leader of the mandalorians. And in episode five he is the ONLY one of an elite group of bounty hunters to track down Han Solo. And in the new marvel comic Star Wars: Skywalker strikes and Star Wars: Darth Vader, he tells Vader that he has a son. So boba fett is directly responsible for the ending of Star Wars the empire strikes back.

Not at all pointless without him han would never be frozen he caused jabbas death because of that and when he was a child he was the main clone. in the clone wars T.V. series he was very important he killed so many as well as did some good stuff so I don't see him as pointless at all

The only point of the character was to deliver Han Solo to Jabba the Hutt, in 'The Empire Strikes Back. ' So why he has such a huge fan base is mind boggling.

Why does everyone love Boba so much, he does nothing cool. And he has the lamest death of all time. He says nothing, does virtually nothing, and is only popular because he looks cool.

But please, go ahead. I know what your typing, tell me how he is totally redeemed in the joke of an expanded universe that is the Star Wars EU.

4 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.

Saying he sucks because he's ugly, creepy, a criminal, ugly, slimy, fat, etc. missed the point. He's SUPOSED to be that way. Also, he plays a big role: it's because of him that Solo is captured, he composes the whole start of RotJ AND, to top it all off, he is the reason Boba, a very popular (although overrated) appears on screen

Here's something about Jabba that you did not know! I AM DEATHLY AFRAID OF HIM! He's gotta be the creepiest thing you've ever seen.

He was in episode one, four, and six. At least 3 episodes, that makes him pretty relevant.

Jabba The Hut sucks! He's so pointless. He should be #1 plus he's worst than Jar Jar binks.

5 Greedo Greedo (or Greedo the Young) is a fictional character from the Star Wars franchise. He is portrayed by Paul Blake as well as Maria De Aragon in some close-in pickup shots in Star Wars (1977).

Born on a battlefield and baptized in blood
You took your first steps in the red reeking mud
Killed your first man at the age of thirteen
Life's lessons taught you to be cruel and mean
All your prayers are said in vain
You live by the blade, die by the same
DIE IN PAIN!
Soldier of fortune selling your sword
Leading to battle a barbaric horde
Showing no mercy to those you attack
You kill without feeling and never look back
Vengeance and hatred was all that you knew
Stealing and killing was all you could do
Living and loving the life that you led
A life that has left you, nothing but dead

Jar jar had a tiny part he showed obi wan and qui gon the underwater city but greedo did nothing this is what happened with him AT ALL he's talking with han han talks with him han blows his face up that's it

What does he have to do with anything. He's on screen for about 30 seconds confronting Han then just gets his face blown up. Pointless, didn't do anything

I never thought about it but he kinda is pointless except in the T.V. show an episode where he was a smuggler

6 Rose Tico

They threw her in the movie because she's Asian but they forgot to give her a role. I would love a strong powerful female Asian Star Wars Character. But that's not what they have us. I love Diversity but the point of Diversity isn't just throwing a bunch of different ethnicities into a movie with no direction. We want goodly written diverse characters for representation. We're not just gonna like a character just because they are a certain race. - AngelOfTheSky

This list was made too early. Rose is a totally pointless character, they added her for the heck of it, she's unneeded and does nothing worth mentioning. Her kiss with Finn had no buildup, and felt forced and very awkward as a result. Hope she dies soon

She is the worst Star Wars character! Worse then Jar Jar and that's saying a lot

At least Jar Jar had a purpose which is giving Palpatine his powers. All Rose Tico did was save some animal horse thingy and saved Finn.

7 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.

Is this a joke? General Grievous was one of the biggest threats to the Republic. How is he not important? Without Grievous, the Galactic Empire would not have been possible. - Slipperyjack40

What's he doing on this list? He's awesome.

General Grievous Is awesome, he coughs because he is a actual cyborg. He was a reptile but got shot by Count Dooku. Dooku went and rebuild him as a cyborg which explains the lungs and the eyes sawed in III.

I am insulted. He is one of the best characters in the third movie. By the way he was never a reptile.

8 TC-14

She actually appears in Empire Strikes back. When C3PO is investigating that room in which he saw TC14 walk out of, he says hello to her and she replies with something offensive. So she does appear in more than one film, BUT she is still pointless

I'm only voting for her because I don't want someone as awesome as Boba Fett to be in third place.

I don't know a lot but the little I know he was fairly pointless

C3Po was fussy but he was still a hero. Tc-14 is only in for like a minute at the beginning of The Phantom menace and thinks she's in charge during her conversation with the Jedi. - cameronbrown

9 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.

Nute gunray is just useless he is a pawn for darth sideous and appears to have no measure of personal desire or will. We are not told his motivations and his person is just cgi useless crap

The racist Chinese guy. Good job that Anakin killed him.

Cool character.

^ That's actually a costume.. Lol

10 C3PO C-3PO is a humanoid robot character from the Star Wars franchise who appears in the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy and the sequel trilogy.

Cry baby tincan clanker. honestly his movement and voice just piss me off

Why do people dislike c-3po? That's just pervertedly messed up.

Get him off of here he is a hero.

Who says C3PO is a pointless Star Wars characters I mean he's awesome!

The Contenders
11 Rey Rey is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by British actress Daisy Ridley. First appearing as the central character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey is a scavenger who was left behind on the planet Jakku when she was a child, and later becomes involved with the Resistance's ...read more.

Whether you like her or not, she is the heart and soul of the final trilogy. Is that not important? I'm sure nobody likes Vader but we all consider him extremely important.

Another happy landing
This Mary Sue killed Luke's wife, throw him away like trash, tranformed THE REAL CHOSEN ONE WHO didn't GET THE RANK OF MASTER into an audio, destroyed the EU and denied her biological family
Fact
Anakin: I'm Skywalker, Luke's a Skywalker, Leia's a Skywalker, any other Skywalker I should know about?
Rey Palp: Meow.

She piloted the Millennium Falcon, first try. She fixed the Millennium Falcon before Han ' Solo did. She beat Kylo Ren with the force, despite not knowing what it was 24 hours previously. She had never picked up a blaster and was a perfect shot with it every time after a single miss. She beat Kylo Ren, who had presumably trained for years under Luke Skywalker and Snoke. His training wasn't complete, but it almost was, as demonstrated by the fact that he was literally undergoing a final trial of faith.
She is not useless to the Force Awakens.
But she IS useless to the entire Star Wars universe, just like the entire movie was.

It seems that the people who voted Rey into the top ten are just people who have sour grapes about the Force Awakens. Rey is actually a better character than Luke in my opinion. The main reason people hate the movie and character and the movie is because she isn't Luke and the movie isn't the originals.

12 Sebulba

Doesn't really effect anything - CaptainComedy17

He's not pointless he is in 2nd place in the race also tried to kill jar jar

He just added more minutes to the already horrible Phantom Menace

He should be torn to pieces by obiwan

13 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.

They could've done another storyline and not include him sure but in the story he is one of the most important characters. He is the reason the Republic had an army and without that the empire would never have came and nothing would have happened - Unnamed Google User Remade

His death was so scary. I mean, you saw him get beheaded. Nobody lives through that, not for long anyway. I mean sometimes the brain is still active for a few minutes after the beheading but... To be honest you guys I can't imagine a worse kind of hell.

Jango Fett had a purpose. He was the one who actually helped the republic create an army.

He's one f the most important characters he was the idea for the clones

14 Ziro The Hut

Worst character in clone wars

He is fat and ugly like jabba the hut but is stupid as well

All huts are the same disgusting thing - VideoGamefan5

15 L3-37

I almost walked out of the movie because of her

Annoying she is the worst part of solo - Dvafan2

16 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 ...read more.

This character had no reason to exist for 13 years. Until 2012 he was only a cool looking Sith. He had no large influence on the star wars galaxy. He was just there to look cool. It wasn't until he was put into the Clone Wars that he actually did something and even then all he did was get in the way of Obi Wan, do some stuff on Mandalore, and make Ezra act like he was going to the dark side for a couple of episode.

Most overrated character. All he did was a random with lord who barely was scene in 15 minutes of the film. His only point was to kill qui gon forcing Obi wan to take anakin as his padawan, which might I add anyone could have done. In reality, he is just an overrated guy with horns and face paint, and a useless double sided lightsaber. Seriously, what is the point to that?

Darth Maul is even more important than every other Star Wars character combined including Luke! So anyone who thinks Darth Maul isn't important can just go ahead and choke on a muffin because they are all complete IDIOTS!

Maul was only created to look cool, he serves no real point (like many of the new characters in phantom menace) and to make him worse, he somehow survived being cut in half and fought in the clone wars.

17 Padme Amidala Padmé Amidala is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, appearing in the prequel trilogy portrayed by actress Natalie Portman.

Padme didn't need to exist, in fact, the entire prequel trilogy never had to exist for Star Wars to tell a whole story. The original trilogy told us enough about Darth Vader's backstory. It's clear George wanted to capitalize on the name of Star Wars for as long as possible. Unlike her daughter, Padme is a bland character with no spunk or charisma. She's just boring to watch. And she has the worst character downgrade in Star Wars history. By ROTS, Padme was restricted to being a housewife who dies of a broken heart. Sad that she couldn't even live for her children. No offense to Natalie Portman, it's not my intention to make fun of her. In the story, she is obviously important though as she is the wife of Darth Vader and the mother of Luke and Leia, but she didn't need to exist.

You know, I can't say that Padme wasn't important, but then again, how much of a role did she REALLY play?

Wow people are so stupid I swear. She is literally just as important as DARTH VADER. This warrior Queen slays like no other. All hail Darth Padme.

I am outraged at whoever thinks Padme's character is pointless. Did she not fight in battles? Did she not give birth to Luke and Leia? If it wasn't for Padme, we wouldn't have Darth Vader. Padme was what let Anakin to the dark side, in fear that he would lose her. It was all about her.

18 Maz Kanata Maz Kanata is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. Introduced in the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, she is a CGI character voiced and performed through motion capture by Lupita Nyong'o.

She hasn't had a chance to do anything yet! She was in 1 movie...she will be important soon

She was an okay character. She wasn't pointless - Charmedyeti

19 Zam Wesell

There may not be much said about her, but I on the other hand thought that she was one awesome bounty hunter.

Pointless the only point of this character is Assainate padme

She doesn’t exactly have a big part. She could have been as good as other bounty hunters if jango didn’t kill her. She’s a great female role that probably could have gone further. But lucasfilm gave her a 5 minute part and then she died. Classic for star wars

20 Ezra Bridger

Who's the jackass who added him? For god's sake, he's lost his parents on his birthday and maybe its because you don't know what its like to be a street urchin.

Okay, take him off. He's awesome. And for the one who added this YOUR FACE SUCKS.

He was part of the original rebels! Before a new hope and everything! He played a part by kicking off the entire rebellion

He is not even in the real star wars, that is star wars rebels!

Who's this half Indian half Arabian bad face who could draw this and say oh yes lets make a star wars animation with him I mean who's deciding this I would say this is the worst star wars character ever and seriously just look at his dumb face and bad hair Disney should kill him before he lays eggs... pointless and dumb nothing more..

21 Watto

Do not understand why he needs a part in the second film

Uglier than my sister. Well, maybe not.

22 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.

The protagonist overshadowed by all the supporting cast in all possible ways: acting, dialogue, development, charisma, action scenes...
She's the most derivative and bland character of the Disney era.

The Katniss Everdeen of Space.

Spoiler All dies.

Kinda ugly but kinda hot. - AngelOfTheSky

23 Finn FN-2187 (Finn) is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. He first appeared in the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens in which he is a stormtrooper for the First Order who flees and turns against it after being shocked by their cruelty in his first combat mission. He is portrayed by English ...read more.

I know sidekicks are almost always useless but he just sucks at everything he does. like he had combat training in the empire and still managed to get stunned by a riot trooper while weilding a lightsaber.

Finn is awesome there is nothing wrong with him if anything he is better than jar jar

He doesn't do anything. Rey is our hero! Replace this character with Rey right now!

Jar Jar: The most pointless Character in Star Wars history.
Finn: Hold My Beer.

24 Salacious Crumb

jabba's little pet monkey-lizard -

That laugh makes fanboy and chum chum look amusing.

I wish this guy would shut up - Toptenanimallovers

Makes Jar Jar look awesome.

25 Bib Fortuna

Dude, this guy is UGLY! When I went through my Star Wars phase (at age 7) this guy was one of the only characters I didn't really like from the later movies. I'm getting back into that phase right now, and I'm re-watching all the movies in order. (non-chronological) I just watched numbers 1 and 2, thank goodness he hasn't come along yet. (but he will soon) - RockFashionista

This guy is also kinda creepy and pointless. - htoutlaws2012

Really? A major domo of jabba? Jabba is the real antagonist, where bib is just a servant hovering around jabba whispering secrets to him as bib plots to kill jabba

He is going to eat Jabba for dinner.
