Top 10 Best Star Wars Characters from the Original Trilogy and the Sequel TrilogyMegaSoulhero As you may know, it's the 40th anniversary of Star Wars. So in honor of that, let's discuss the best characters from the original trilogy (4-6) and the sequel trilogy (7-9).
The Top Ten
Darth Vader is the greatest villain of all time! He is such an awesome dude! When he first appears in A New Hope, you can tell he's the kind of guy you don't want to mess with. He is very intimidating and doesn't let anything stand in his way. He looked like a pretty scary dude in the first movie, but Empire Strikes Back makes him seem a lot more frightening. As he's battling Luke, we feel like Vader will end up destroying him. And of course Vader has one of the best lines in any movie ever! "I am your father". To this day, that is the best plot twist ever. We get to see Anakin before he turned into Darth Vader in the prequels. But they completely ruin him. We also get to see him turn into Vader in Episode 3. They even manage to ruin that by having him shout "NO! " However, in Rogue One, we get to see the absolute coolest Vader moment ever! The scene that really shows how dark of a villain he really is! If you saw the movie, you know what I'm talking about. That scene alone was ...more - MegaSoulhero
"I find your lack of faith disturbing,"- gives me chills. - DarkandSinister
Darth Vader is hands down the greatest Star Wars character ever. - DCfnaf
There should be no questions and no contest.
My question is why Kylo Ren, who literally worships Vader, is so close to him in rankings. I would expect Kylo to be near the bottom.
Han Solo is my idol! I look up to this guy! He is truly an inspiration! A very tough guy! Doesn't take crap from anyone! Literally everything about him is great! People say that Indiana Jones is the best Harrison Ford character. I disagree. Han Solo is. He's just so cool! He doesn't care what anyone thinks. He plays by his own rules. He even has some of the best lines. Like before he gets frozen in carbonite, Leia says "I love you" and Han responds with "I know". Because that's the kind of guy he is. And in that same scene, the fact that he was willing to be frozen in carbonite shows how brace he is. Even in TFA he is still shown to be the same Han that we know and love. Han truly is an awesome character. Also, HAN SHOT FIRST! - MegaSoulhero
Super funny and played by one of the best actors ever: Harrison Ford! (Harrison Ford also plays Indiana jones! )
Han Solo is a legend of Star Wars, and he will always be remembered. #RIP - micahisthebest
One of the coolest movie characters ever - PeeledBananaV 1 Comment
Only two more months until I most likely get to see this guy in person. Luke Skywalker, played by Disney legend Mark Hamill, is the main character of the original trilogy. After being trained by Master Yoda on Dagobah, he became a master Jedi and attempted to defeat Darth Vader. Luke is a very heroic character. He's a very powerful force user and he was able to destroy the Death Star. One of my favorite scenes involving him was the Sarlacc Pit scene in Return of the Jedi. That scene shows just how great Luke has gotten at using the force. And as we all know, Luke goes on to become a Jedi mentor. Which we will see in Episode 8. Which comes out this December. I'm very excited! - MegaSoulhero
Because that's me
He is a cool dude - missyweirdo
Luke is the best, Vader close second. THe story of star wars is the story of the skywalkers, and that's why I would vote for both of them if I could
Rey is hot! One of the hottest characters in the Star Wars universe! Rey is truly an awesome character. There are a lot of things that she can do. She can fight, pilot ships, use the force, and she's an expert with a lightsaber! All these things cause people to say that Rey is a Mary Sue. First of all, a lot of people seem to really like Ariel from the Little Mermaid even though she's an even bigger Mary Sue. Seriously! Ariel ends up getting what she wanted even after almost getting everyone killed! Can anyone explain to me how we're supposed to like Ariel? Second of all, there are still two movies left in the sequel trilogy. They'll most likely explain how Rey is able to do all these things. I read online that Rey is able to pilot ships because she practiced with flight simulators. Which makes sense. Rey is an underrated character in my opinion. I wonder if I have a chance with Daisy Ridley. - MegaSoulhero
Rey makes me hate star wars because she learned the force way too fast, it was so random and out of nowhere, she learned it faster than Luke which is weird. It just frustrates me so much! - missyweirdo
Boba Fett is the greatest bounty hunter in the entire galaxy! Even though he only has 4 lines in the entire trilogy, he is still a very awesome character! There are some people who say that he doesn't do much. I don't know. I think he was pretty useful. He pretty much captured Han Solo. Also, in the prequels, I felt a little bad for him. He saw his own father, Jango Fett, die. As terrible as Attack of the Clones is, that's kind of emotional. It's great that he went on to become an even more powerful bounty hunter than Jango. I really hated the way he died though. He accidentally got hit in the back. Kind of pathetic. Honestly, I don't know why people hate Boba Fett. I remember reading a YouTube comment saying that he's worse than Jar Jar Binks. Haha. Such an exaggeration. - MegaSoulhero
He was able to capture Han Solo! He is the most clever and coolest character of all time! I wanted him to live! - missyweirdo
The cutest thing I have laid eyes on. Smart, cunning, being able to get out of danger. He just... goes with the flow or... force I should say. The loyal sidekick. I wish he had as big as a role as... characters like BB-8.
He is the cutest thing ever! - missyweirdo
As I was making this list, I forgot to include a droid. So I took Chewbacca off the list and included R2-D2. I was deciding between R2 and BB-8. But as I was thinking, I realized that we had 7 movies to fully appreciate R2 whereas we've only seen BB-8 in one movie so far. R2 is a very helpful droid. And he's very adorable. Even though he can't talk, he still has a personality. He and C-3PO make an excellent duo. Even though they can get on each other's nerves, they are still great friends. I felt like their cameo in Rogue One was pointless though. - MegaSoulhero
Kylo Ren is the villain in TFA and the son of Leia and Solo. Just from the trailers, I knew this guy would be awesome. He lives up to Vader and strives to become as evil as him. He totally succeeds at doing so! I also really love his lightsaber. It's also great that we got to see him take off his helmet. Although, I felt like it would've been better if his confrontation with his father was the first time he took it off. Instead, he decided to take it off for the first time when he's interrogating Rey. Also, I don't know why he even wears a helmet. As he's battling Rey, he totally shows a lot of skills and has the upper hand. Until Rey defeated him because plot. Still, Kylo Ren is pretty awesome. - MegaSoulhero
Leia actually looks a lot hotter as a Disney Infinity figure than in the movies. Oops. Was that too far? Let me try again. Leia is a good looking princess. Sort of. The point is, Leia is awesome no matter what! She definitely doesn't feel like a stereotypical princess. She's not entirely a damsel in distress. Well I mean she does end up having to be rescued. But she is also shown to be very tough and able to handle herself. She's totally awesome with a blaster. She is the sister of Luke Skywalker, but of course she didn't find out until later in the trilogy. As a result, Luke and Leia kissed. Awkward. Leia ends up getting together with Han Solo. Understandable since Han is awesome. And she ends up becoming the mother of Kylo Ren. I really like Leia. She is definitely a smart and tough lady. It's shame what happened to Carrie Fisher 5 months ago. It will be emotional watching Episode 8. - MegaSoulhero
SHE NEEDS TO BE HIGHER ON THE LIST! SHE KILLED JABBA THE HUTT, RESCUED HAN SOLO, AND SHE HAS A SASSY YET WITTY ATTITUDE! SHE RULES! - missyweirdo
It should be yoda because fans always have loved him and he is so prolific in the series
Greatest jedi of all time
He trained Luke! He is so wise and helpful! He rocks! - missyweirdo
Finn is my favourite character in the sequel trilogy, and I think he is better than Rey. - micahisthebest
Finn is the first ever stormtrooper to ever become a good guy! That's probably the thing I like most about him. He's the first stormtrooper to actually get any development. I wouldn't say that he got enough character development, but there are still two more movies. They can't tell us every little thing about the character in just one movie. Finn is the kind of guy that I would totally hang out with. John Boyega plays the character so perfectly. I also though Finn is what made TFA so funny. Most of the jokes involving him are what made me laugh the most. He tried to take on Kylo Ren face to face, which he failed at, but the fact that he actually attempted to defeat him shows how brave he is. Fun fact: I read somewhere online that while being a stormtrooper, Finn never missed a shot with his blaster. Wow. Finn really isn't a stormtrooper. Also, that makes me wonder how he got stuck with sanitation. But I still think Finn is very great. - MegaSoulhero
Chewbacca is so stupid and he gets on my nerves a lot - missyweirdo
BB8 is my favorite character
He is the cutest thing ever
He's black. And that's that. - missyweirdo
Technically shouldn't be on the list though since he is from the prequel and this list only wanted the original series and sequel - germshep24
Yes, Jar Jar Binks, the most hated character in the entire Star Wars Universe, he is so hated that he deserve a high spot on this list - germshep24
You expect me to believe that Jar Jar Binks somehow made the list? Yeah, no. - 906389
I don't find him annoying - PeeledBananaV 4 Comments
Look at how badass he looks. - DCfnaf
He was such a weak ass idiot in the prequels! - missyweirdo
Annoying little bitch - missyweirdo
How can you not
*nien numb - dorigthellama
Ewokness for life <3 Wicket is just so cute, and even helps leia in her time of need. Without him everyone wouldv'e died to death so go ewoks.
I love EWOKS THEY R FUNDERFUL!
I really like Padme for whatever reason.She always stood out to me as a cool character,if it weren't for her,we wouldn't have the Luke and Leia we all know and love.Just process that for a little while and you'll understand how massive that is to the franchise.So give a little more love to Padme Amidala.
