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...

He was there for funnyness. it wasn't funny

He would've been a much better character is he was revealed to be a sith lord. - InfinateSuperstorm

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.

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 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.

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

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

What is he doing here?

4 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.

Creepier than Jar Jar.

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's not shown much.

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

5 Greedo 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
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

Han shot first! - Vancedapurpleguy

Rest in peace sweet prince

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

6 General Grievous 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.

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

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

7 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

8 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

She did nothing throught the movie and ruined the movie

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.

Remember sakura from naruto this is her now - Dvafan2

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 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!

C3PO was really good why do people not like him? - steelers1979

The Contenders

11 Jango Fett 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.

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.

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 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

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.

Imagine how much the sequel trilogy would suck if she wasn't in it. - AngelOfTheSky

Pointless character, develops far to quickly

Pretty much any character from the ST is pointless.

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.

I almost walked out of the movie because of her

Annoying she is the worst part of solo - Dvafan2

16 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!

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!

Cool looking? This effing character looks rediculous... Make an evil character look like the devil... Very subtle. Just one of the many reasons the first three episodes sucked want.

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

17 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

If Padmé didn't exist, episodes 4, 5, 6, 7, 8,and 9 couldn't be possible. - AriFan101

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 Maz Kanata 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

20 Ezra Bridger Ezra Bridger

The most annoying and terrible character of all...even worse than Jar Jar. Holdo, Rose, Jyn round out the top five worst. - anakincane

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!

Uglier than my sister. Well, maybe not.

22 Jyn Erso 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.

Kinda ugly but kinda hot. - AngelOfTheSky

Kyle Katarn obtained the Death Star plans, not this SJW bimbo.

The Katniss Everdeen of Space.

He is portrayed by English more.

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

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!

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

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

He is going to eat Jabba for dinner.

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.

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

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

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'!

32 Lars

Just like Lars Ulrich I suppose

Lukes Uncle, Does Nothing - CaptainComedy17

He keeps Luke away form being a jedi! You are a (Insert insults here)

Just like Lars Alexanderson from Tekken.

33 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. Ren's real identity is Ben Solo, the son of Han Solo and Princess Leia. He was trained more.

He is a wannabe, washed up, sorry-sack, pitiful, patricidal pathetic clone of Vader. Kylo Ren is worse than Jar Jar.

I LOVE HIM stop hating he is GREAT!
He might become good.

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

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

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

I think they did not mean it I mean they spelled the name wrong...(at least I hope.)

Which idiot spelled her name wrong? And why did he put her on here? She is one of the main characters in star wars - Charmedyeti

He was portrayed by Christopher Lee and more.

This guy is the reason Anakin had a robotic arm, which is the reason vader had one, which is one of the reasons why luke didn't kill vader when he had the chance. case closed.

What the H! Why is he on this list? I totally thought that he was one awesome villain. He was the leader of the droid army and the Separatist. In episode 2 he defeated Obi Wan and Anakin and also managed to hold his own against Yoda... Besides, what other villain can pull off the curved lightsaber hilt?

Terrible villain, I hated him so much. They should have just made Darth Maul the villain for the prequels.

I wish people will quit hating Dooku.

48 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

They whine and cry a lot, do nothing but whine, useless, pathetic.
