Top Ten Most Pointless Star Wars Characters

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.

Jar Jar caused the Star Wars, should be removed

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!

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

Awesome bounty hunter and character.

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

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.

Boba fett is awesome - VideoGamefan5

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

9 Nute Gunray Nute Gunray

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 C3PO

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!

He's one of the main characters in the original trilogy! - VideoGamefan5

The Contenders

11 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.

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

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

Darth Maul is so cool and hot. How could he be on this list? There is a point, he killed Kenobi's master and was epic in Clone Wars. People who posted negative comments about him can just go and die.

what? - VideoGamefan5

jabba's little pet monkey-lizard -

That laugh makes fanboy and chum chum look amusing.

All he does is laugh, take out C3POs eye and then blow up on the Sail Barge

13 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

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 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 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.

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.

16 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.

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

She's bad in the first but good in the others

Her only purpose was just to be the mom to Luke and Leia other than that she is extremely pointless. So Padmé killing sand people is okay and yet killing younglings is a crime please explain. - Anonymousxcxc

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!

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..

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

Uglier than my sister. Well, maybe not.

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

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
