Top Ten Most Pointless Star Wars Characters

CaptainComedy17
The characters that Star Wars could have done without.

The Top Ten

1 Jar Jar

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 hate this character. Easily the worst. The series would've been better without him. And whoever put Leia on this list has clearly never watched Star Wars, because she's great, and she rescues Han from the carbonite freezer, as well as saves them all from the stormtroopers after they break her out of the detention level in a New Hope.

Who the hell put Leia on the list? Strong female character < Jamaican frogman? At least most of the voters know what they're voting about.

Ugh... I hate this guy. He's the worst character in the Star Wars franchise. - TheFourthWorld

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!

Disgusting - VideoGamefan5

3 Greedo Greedo

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

If you read any comic you would know how bad ass ths characte ris

4 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

Thars less than a minit of him

5 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.

Why is he on this list. He captured Han Solo which forced Luke and his friends to try and save Han. Sad he was barley in Jedi

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.

I think the reason they love him is because of his appearance.

What is he doing here?

6 General Grievous General Grievous

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.

What I don't understand is the need to give him a cough. And, of course, robots always get things in their throats, despite the fact that they don't eat. - PositronWildhawk

Watch Star Wars: clone wars, it's a two-part T.V. series from 2003. It explains pretty much everything that happened during the clone wars between episode 2 and 3. PS: not the new T.V. show that plays on Cartoon Network

Grievous should not be in the top ten list for worst. Grievous has 4 lightsabers and can block ever bullet that come to him.

7 Jabba the Hutt 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.

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.

He should be the first one he is creepy and a criminal

He's not shown much.

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 is cool.

9 Nute Gunray 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 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 ...read more.

What!? Darth Maul killed Obi-Wan's master!

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. - moore770

What Darth Maul is not pointless he's awesome, he's the strongest villain in the prequels and in Star Wars clone wars.

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

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

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

This guy is also kinda creepy and pointless. - htoutlaws2012

His headdress looks like vanilla pudding 😶 Need I say more?

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

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.

How could Padme be on this list! That makes no sense at all! If you don't agree with me you're just sour because Hayden Christensen isn't the best actor. Also a lot of people just hate the prequels. If you don't believe me you need to watch Attack of the Clones.

Pointless? If she never existed, Luke and Leia would've never been born, Anakin wouldn't have become evil and for the most part, most of the things that happened in Star Wars would've never happened

You must agree... Leia’s much much better and her daughter’s more interesting and bossy and sharp and bossy. AND Leia fell for a better man. So HA on you dumb Amidala! You’re too weak!

15 Rey 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.

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.

Eh... I do admit I didn't think much of her, but she's the FRIGGING MAIN CHARACTER! Whoever's idiot enough to vote for her in top 20 is either mindless or a pity hater of main female leads

Jumping the gun here. At least wait until the sequel trilogy is finished to form a proper opinion. Personally I thought she was great in the Force Awakens. Yes, I will admit that the film was just a rethread of A New Hope, but for what we saw of Rey, I was pleased.

Ma-rey Suee!

So bad she was voted in twice... - MojoSpaederman

17 Ezra Bridger 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!

I HATE the rebels. it shouldn't be counted as star wars

18 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

19 Watto

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

Uglier than my sister. Well, maybe not.

20 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

The Katniss Everdeen of Space.

She was a main character in one movie! That is not pointless non - sensicle espes! - Charmedyeti

22 Finn Finn

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

Why do you hate Finn he used to be a storm trooper but now a jedi

I liked John Boyega's performance - Charmedyeti

23 Orson Krennic Orson Krennic
24 Jacen Solo

I hate him cause turns to the dark side and betrays his family

Praise the dark side. The dark side has the best lightsaber fighter, and the best force wielder - Charmedyeti

He is jerk for going to the dark side

Same thing I said to the other "good hearted" kid. The dark side is full of the most powerful people. - Charmedyeti

He's not even in the movies. Why do people hate him so much? He's an awesome sith/dark jedi or whatever he is.

I LOVE Kylo. but this guy sucks.

26 Admiral Tarkin

Blew up princess Leia's home planet and was in charge of building the Death Star...he was Ruthless and definitely not a pointless character

He is the one who discovered the Yavin 4 base by planting a tracking device on the Falcon

27 Jawa

They are cute. I want one to be a main character.

We never see them without their hoods off!

U tiny.

NOPE.Jawas are amazing,but to be truefull,the only way to like jawas,is to LOVE them.Bust who doesn't,they are as cute as ewoks'!

28 Rose Tico

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

29 Jango Fett Jango Fett

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

He's more pointless than Boba Fett.

30 Lumpawaroo

Total garbage that he only appeared in the HOLIDAY SPECIAL!, that enough is why he is pointless, a useless character from a useless movie - VideoGamefan5

31 Kylo Ren 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

I like kylo ren but he gets so damn mad like dude don't destroying your own stuff
like in the force awakens destroys some computers and later on destroys the chair where ray way strapped to and freaked out some storm troopers #LOL

You JERKS want to get kicked in your BUTTS?! He is a AWESOME badguy with depth like his grandfather! So lay off, and YOU who said he wears a mask to hide his "scars"(everyone gets acne you big hypocrite! ) and moles(who doesn't have moles? I do! Are you Barbie or something?! )...I don't get worked up and mad often, but if we were in the same room...I'D KNEE YOU IN THE STOMACH SO HARD YOU'D GAG! Kylo Ren is AMAZING and Adam Driver is the MOST HANDSOME MAN EVER!

"He trying to imitate Darth Vader... He Suck"

He acts like the people he commands like as if they never even noticed him lol.

What villain is able to blow up a whole planet with the snap of his fingers? What admiral is the only admiral that can tell Darth Vader what to do? All these questions answer to the name of Grand Moff Tarkin. He was very useful in the saga and was able to pipe down the mighty Darth Vader.

I hate him because in star wars the clone wars he puts ahsoka in jail and Nader kicked out the Jedi order

And in the new hope movie I'm glad he died

Really - pancake2015

I don't remember a lea. I know a leia, but I know no one would be high enough to vote for her.

41 The Jedi Younglings

I think they were there to show that Anakin really was willing to do anything for the Emperor and show him really going to the dark side. It was a pretty dark scene. The original cut showed Anakin actually fighting them.

That's not true! They helped obi wan and yoda in episode 2. like they had perfect expierience. But that was from yoda and we saw them from a short time before they were killed. Yeah you have got a point.

One thing. How do we no that the Younglings that help them were killed? All we know is that Vader, "Anikin," murdered some that were in the high counsel room, am I right. We have no idea if they were the Ones that helped yoda and Obi-Wan. - Jblood

Why is mace windu here he is one of my favorite characters he is one of the leaders of the Jedi and he even defeat emperor Palpatine until Anakin came.

How is Mace Windu pointless he almost killed Darth Sidious.

He has A PURPLE lightsaber nothing is better than that

He's like the real obi wan all he did could have been done by obi wan

He trained obiwan so that he was experienced enough to train anakin when he was killed
