Top Ten Star Wars Characters
The Top Ten
When people think of guys in dark suits, there thoughts automatically go to Vader.
When people think of red lightsabers, Vader first comes to mind.
When people talk of Star Wars, Vader is always on top of that list.
Shows you how awesomely over rated the guy is. Kinda like Sephiroth except more realistic. - sapphirewhirlwind
Favourite character from the whole franchise and probably my most favourite fictional character ever.
Star Wars is a story of the rise, fall, and legacy of one of the greatest villains in cinematic history. Nothing can top Darth Vader.
Star wars is all about the rise and fall of this tragic hero. A modern day Macbeth who sees the error of his wats
Definitely my favourite Star Wars character, he delivers great in all 6 films. In episode 1 he defeats Darth Maul and fulfills his master's dying wish to train Anakin. In episode 2 he tracks down Padme's assassins, discovers the Clones for the Republic, finds the droid factories on Geonosis and fights Dooku. In episode 3 he rescues the Chancellor and fights Dooku with Anakin, kills Grievous and nearly kills Darth Vader too. He gives Luke to Vader's family on Tatooine and watches over him. In the original he disables the Death Star tractor beam and sacrifices himself for Luke and the others to escape. He acts as a spiritual guide to Luke, teaching him some about the Force and using a lightsaber. Both of Kenobi's actors were the best of any Star Wars actor in my opinion
Kenobi. He's just... Kenobi. He seems to be the character who ties everything together for me, from the peak days of the Republic to the end of the Republic and rise of the Empire. He seems to have gone through the most, lost his master, his apprentice and best friend, his lover, the people who treated him like family, and never strayed away from his belief in the Jedi.
And yes, Alec Guiness did his part well but wasn't invested in the character. Ewan McGregor seemed to relish playing in the role and he just is Kenobi to me.
Revenge of the Sith and Attack of the Clones were my two favorite star wars movies and Kenobi was my favorite character in those movies
I like Obi Wan because he is so smart and very diplomat, he is a very good fighter and I really admire him
One of the greatest heroes in movie history
Definitely my favorite light side hero out of the Original Trilogy.
He is an iconic classic.
Luke is a powerful jedi, training Rey
The most badass scruffy looking nerve herder
Never was a huge Luke fan but Han Solo was always an amazing sidekick to root for
He is good in a strange sort of way.
Yoda is one of the few fictional characters I can look up to as inspirational. While he may be a great warrior, his best quality is his sage-like wisdom. This can be seen through numerous quotes, which can be applicable in real life, such as:
- "Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed, that is."
- "Do, or do not. There is no try."
- "The greatest teacher, failure is."
- "Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter."
- "Truly wonderful the mind of a child is."
Yoda views the other Jedi as his family, and this is why he feels responsible for being unable to detect and stop Darth Sidious. However, he ultimately accepts that it is up to someone else to stop Sidious and that he has a duty to train them and pass down his wisdom. - rapaddict97
Do or do not there is no try
How could you not love his backward speech.
The cutest thing to ever exist - Rasmuscool99
Swears so much that every line is bleeped out
The best droid ever
LOVE DA DUDE! But the sequels totally disrespect him. Also, want proof that he's the most iconic Star Wars character? Walk up to one of of your friends who doesn't know anything about Star Wars and say, "Name all the Star Wars characters you know." Chances are, R2-D2 and Darth Vader will be at the top of their list.
Only one of 2 to go through all the films. And he's funny
The Best Disney Princess
Luke: "The Force is strong in my family. My father has it... I have it... My sister, has it. Yes, Leia...It's you." How could this not be one of the most memorable scenes in Star Wars? What princess here has their own ship, (SPACE ship.) doesn't run away from the danger, is called a general, whose brother is one of the most good looking and most known in the whole universe, has the greatest hair, actually knows what a weapon looks like, has had the courage to fly into a "cave" that turned out to be a huge monster, killed an evil ugly looking warm (AKA: Jabba) is brave enough to confront Vader and not tell him important information and know she could be killed if not, AND still looks awesome while doing it!
Leia is epic because she a strong female character who leads the rebels to victory.
Best princess of all time - Margarida
Hayden's portrayal of Anakin may not have been the best acting wise, but Anakin is by far the most three-dimensional character in the Star Wars saga (it's also confusing to me as to why Anakin and Darth Vader are separate people on this page...they are the same person; When Vader fulfills the prophecy and kills Darth Sidious to help his son, Anakin Skywalker arises once again). Anakin did everything for love. He lost his mother in possibly the most horrific way possible--he watched the light leave her eyes while she was in his arms. The guilt he felt for not being able to save her is what triggered the immense fear of loss that would eventually lead him to the Dark Side. In my opinion, Anakin was a character that was very easily manipulated but he had a good heart, and had good intentions. Good intentions do not excuse what he did, like killing the younger Jedi in the temple or choking his wife, but he is a very flawed person. And I guess that makes him very human, regardless of the ...more
Anakin was a much cooler and developed character than Darth Vader. Anakin was all over the place, was he good was he bad, was he bad for the reason of good. There was so much character development. Then, he became Darth Vader. Darth Vader couldn't move as fast, and he was basically a robot until return o the jedi.
In my opinion he was stronger as Anakin Skywalker. If he stuck with being a Jedi he would've still become the most powerful being in the universe ever! Don't forget, he probably wouldn't lose his legs and get burned half to death as well, he'd be quicker, more agile and more flexible and his maneuverability would've been insane, almost that of YODAS!
Isn't he and vader the same?
Never says a word of english and still manages to be one of the best characters
He's a big hairy legend
How is Bigfoot that can use a laser gun cute
Chewbacca is so cute! He is one of my favorite characters from Star Wars... - Onepatch
The fact that he only has two scenes and is still top 10 shows how much everyone loves this character
I love Maul all around in both The Phantom Menace and in The Clone Wars.
Love his colour and dual lightsaber only he has!
He's a little bit too creepy for me, but still a pretty swell guy.
He’s the best
He was great in Empire, the galaxy's greatest bounty hunter and a worthy right-hand man to Vader. Wish we got to see more of him in the films, Sarlacc should get indigestion and spit him out.
Boba Fett? Where?
Originally he was overrated but then someone said he was overrated so then people agreed and he became underrated but then some people disagreed and now he's middleratted. Damn I'm good - Unnamed Google User Remade
Boba fett should have his own team I've always liked him I have two action figures of him I can save my money for the vintage figure and there should be a video game about him there's him jango fett the mandolarian and other bounty hunters and I do believe there should be a crossover of transformers and star wars
Mastermind behind each Galactic conflict in the series so far. Sheev basically serves as the embodiment of the Dark Side of the Force and is a truly frightening character. I also love how hammy he is, he just loves being evil.
I AM THE SENATE!
If you thought Darth Vader was the real villain in the original trilogy, you were sure wrong. This Emperor is pretty much stronger and more evil than all star wars combined, in fact, he's pretty much the lord of all evil, and the most evil villain that was ever thought of by any franchise, making those like Thanos and Darkseid, look like heroes. If it weren't for him, Darth Vader wouldn't exist. This is how bad he is.
He has one of the COOLEST character in the whole series. While Vader will always be the original villain who turns right before the end, Ben Solo comes back and kills the knights of Ren, helps Rey destroy Palpatine, and then gives his life to her. Overall, one of the best characters in the series.
The best character of the sequel trilogy
He died and me and my dad cried. I grieved for a week.
Kylo is definitely one of my favorite Star Wars characters ever. I love him
This guy beat Darth Sidious. If it weren't for Anakin he'd have saved the republic.
He is very skilled indeed, but Sidious did lose on purpose do get Anakin to join the dark side. Look at how he fought against Yoda. Yoda is way harder to fight, he's stronger with the force and 2 feet and jumping around. I know the clone wars is animated but he completely destroyed maul and savage and lifted them and tossed them around with ease. But I do like Mace - bumsterdumster
Purple light saber. Samuel L Jackson. Beat Palpatine. Top 3 Jedi
Mace windu is the dopest must wise and most badass jedi of all time
He BEAT the most powerful Sith lord of all time, Darth Sidious, and Sidious DIDN'T throw the fight.
Best comic relief in the series. A perfect example of how to make a character annoying to the other characters while still adding to the viewing experience. Take notes, Jar Jar.
I can't say he is my favorite, but this guy seriously needs more attention. Vader (after Anakin turned to the dark side) never notices him. Neither does any other villain. On the light side, when they give him attention, they do for five seconds max (unless you count R2-D2). For all his intelligence, he needs to be way higher - MusicMovieMinecraftMe
I love this guy. A perfect counterpart to r2d2. Their paradoxical love just makes me smile. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
Why does everyone hate him? He is the best!
Grievous is probably the most infamous Jedi killer in the galaxy, complete with a murderous cybernetic wheeze that established himself the Vader before Vader became Vader. He is the villainous cyborg of the Clone Wars and the architect of the war atrocities of the Separatist alliance, and altogether very underrated in my opinion. Each lightsaber he collects is a trophy; a testament to all the Jedi he has slain in battle.
He is an unstoppable beast in Clone Wars and expanded material. He's less intimidating in TCW and ROTS, but still an overall fun character with a strong presence. Also literally everything this hulking mechanical monstrosity says becomes a meme and I'm all here for it.
He wields 4 light sabers
One of the most memorable characters from one of the best Star Wars movies, Revenge of the Sith
A top 10 spot would be a fine addition to his collection.
Rey is a poorly written character, is simply overpowered and far too competent in every single way. If Rey were Male the character would be getting similar feedback from those who dislike the character (Think Anakin Skywalker the phantom menace - very small fan base)
Some suggest gender is an issue no one I know has any issue with Rey being female (Leia,Helen Ripley Jyn Erso and many more female leads are celebrated there is no issue because they have flaws, there is character development and a reason to keep watching) several women I know dislike the ridiculous hyper-competent Rey because there is nothing to get behind or invest in.
If a character has no flaws there is no journey to take with the character because everything or anything they encounter is overcome with consummate ease which made several people just switch off.
Why invest time in a character who can do absolutely everything brilliantly? why invest in a character who has no learning curve ...more
Rey is incredible. She is cool. Compliment to Daisy Ridley for the incredible acting by the way. Her story fascinated me. As a child she was left on Jakku, and got herself through until the age of 19 at which she leaves with Finn and the Millennium Falcon. She is a great pilot, even though no one taught her. She constantly keeps proving that she can be better than somebody, especially the guys. She leaves without her parents ever returning, and starts fighting alongside the Resistance. Also she had some other personal lows, like when Finn tried to leave, and I think she does like him, either as a friend, or maybe as something else, I don't know. Later she is kidnapped by Ren and gets out by herself, minutes later she watches Han Solo die and is devastated. Then Finn falls into a coma, she has to fight Ren, and get away. Later she has to leave Finn again, and considering that she whispers "We'll see each other again. I feel it. Thank you, my friend." as she kisses him on the ...more
She is just overpowered and so cool, coolest being in the cinematic series. Giving all my thanks to Daisy Ridley, the best actor
Rey is an awesome character.
Darth sidious is the same thing as emperor palpatine!
Why are Sidious and Palpatine separate here. There the same person
He discovered anakin is the chosen one. If he didn't die. Things would have changed drastically. Dooku wouldn't have turned to the darkside. Anakin would be qui gons padawan. This could lead to order 66 never happening, because the clones would be discovered sooner. Palpatine being revealed sooner. Anakin asking him for advice to save padme, as qui gon would allow the marriage. Qui-gons way of thinking was what would have saved the universe.
I honestly do not think Episode I was awful. I thought it was quite good in fact. And the best thing about it was Qui-Gon Jinn. He may be my favourite character. - BKAllmighty
I think is wasn't that awful to I thought it was quit good to but it was not the best star wars movie but the movie was not bad. I think that all star wars movies are great I'm a really big star wars fan/star wars nerd - jangofettisthebest
One of the best Prequel characters. - GehennaTheSecond
Better then Boba he was an amazing warrior and the clone template.
There is some horrid show that came out, the mandalorian
Um lol everyone thinks he's so " cool " he's not this is why he didn't even try to defeat the Jedi as hard as he could and that's just weird so I would vote on boba vet to be the best bounty hunter not jango fett " just saying he sucks to hell "
Without him there would be know Clone Troopers. No Clone Troopers = No Order 66 = The Dark Side doesn't reign supreme. The Empire would be nothing without him.
He is the reason I am seeing the new one. - KRX
I love this dude. We needed that shady, smooth gangster that is also a really true friend. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
This guy needs more attention. He was a pretty important character in the Original Trilogy, but he's always in the shadow of other characters like Vader, Luke, Han, and Leia. I think it's because he's not in ANH.
He should of been in the new force awakens movie.
Padme is superior to Leia in my opinion and one of my favorite characters in Star Wars. For one she is far more beautiful than Leia could ever be and is the best looking female character to ever exist. She is tougher than Leia too as she has the durability advantage such as she fell on her back from 300 feet and was only knocked out for a minute and is taller and stronger. She was so physically and mentally powerful that she survived battles that even Jedi knight and masters died in. Overall she should be in the top 5.
She is underrated
Very strong, independent, and intelligent woman being a Queen just at 14 years old. She also has fallen off of ships and while she was stunned it appeared to not even damage her but it killed the clone trooper with armor on which proves how durable her body is. She was also choked by her husband which did not kill her as she was medically healthy. She was also heavily pregnant so that's the reason she fell unconscious. It's also fair to note that Jedi/Sith aren't powerful against superheroes, etc. as Darth Vader has taken minutes to strangle imperial officers and couldn't kill Motti in a New Hope. This shows that Vader's choke is no trouble for Padme especially if it was Ep.2 Padme. Padme is also extremely fast being an peak human to the point where she is as fast as Anakin who augments his speed to superhuman levels. She is also extremely intelligent and has an IQ possibly well over 200. She can outthink any opponent. She is great with an blaster never missing. Since force users ...more
She was extremely tough, smart and an extremely beautiful and attractive woman. She survived battles Jedi could not have and survived blows capable of killing the average person. She was also played by Natalie Portman which obviously means she had the beauty of an angel. However I do think Carrie Fisher was more attractive in her prime than Natalie Portman due to her curvy body but it's an close one
I think Finn is my favorite new addition to the Star Wars roster. He is well acted and has good synergy with the rest of the cast. Unfortunately, he suffers from having his arch rushed for the sake of the plot. For me a characters actions must stem from their stated motivations. In the film his defection from the First Order comes about really quickly and isn't well explained. This guy is presumably indoctrinated to believe the First Order are the good guys and and Resistance is some kind of terrorist organization. So when in the first scene his friend is killed by armed villagers harboring a fugitive, I don't know understand why that garners sympathy for the villagers from him. Yeah, they went on the massacre the villagers after that. I don't know if he left because he didn't like killing people or because he was afraid of being shot like his friend. Cause if it is either of those things then it makes no sense why he is so cavalier about killing scores of the people he ...more
I really like making up characters for books and T.V. shows and movies and such. A few years before the latest movies, I made up a character who was once a stormtrooper but started helping the rebel alliance. There were two major differences between Finn and my character! 1. I made the character a girl beacsue I thought it would be different. 2. her name was F1ght3r or Fighter!
So when I watched the movies and found out Finn's backstory, I literally screamed across the whole cinema: "I MADE THIS HAPPEN WITH MY MIND! " I mean, can you blame me, things like this aren't coincidental! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior
I'm only 15 so Star wars the force awakens and The Last Jedi (and whatever number 9 is called), are the movies I'm going to grow up with and I love these movies but my Favourite new character Is easily Finn. Him being a Stormtrooper and chosing to leave is an amazing concept of a character and him try to leave in the lst Jedi really shows what kind of a character he really is. Plus, am I the only person who was on the edge of their seat when Finn was going to crash into that big laser cannon thingy, Thank god that stupid rose chick saved him. Can not wait to see what happens to him in Star wars 9.
My favorite character of all-time and the best new character as well. He has tons of personalities tat I relate to and this character is so awesome that we got to see the first stormtrooper express his own feelings and change sides. This character will develop as well in the series. Finn will be the galaxy's hero forever.
He's just adorable.
I wanna build my own BB-8! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior
I have his sphero - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
I thought she was annoying in Season 1 but over time we really see her grow as a character and learn from her experiences. She was a great addition in TCW and a great fan favorite.
I had an extra vote and the clone wars were good
She be my favorite since I was very young
I'm gonna tell you the truth and the truth is 3 words: best. Jedi. EVER!
I have always been really obsessed with her and she is so cool! Her return in Star Wars Rebels was one of the best things ever and her fight with Darth Vader makes me wonder, Where is she now? I know it might be unlikely but, I really want to see her in the next Star Wars movie! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior
Christopher lee did a good performance.
Count Dooku is better than Darth maul when you get to learn more about Dooku
I’ve been looking forward to making him top 10
Learn more about him and you will find that he's pretty cool. Used to dislike him myself but like him a lot more now. And he was played be the late and great sir Christopher Lee (RIP)
yeah! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior
He has a lightsaber that doubles as a blaster. Enough said.
I don't no this guy
He is one of the best
The coolest of any of the background characters. The Clone Wars T.V. show expands on many of the initial background characters, including Kit Fisto.
Such a cool, laid-back character. my older brother's favourite and he fought against darth sidious ten times as long as two of his fellow council members (them being killed immediately and all). definitely deserves top 15.
This guy looks sick and is one of those background characters that seem whatever but end up doing more.
I'm sorry but what did Kit Fisto do other than look cool? That's what I thought.
One of the most effective bounty hunters in the galaxy, likely second only to Boba Fett himself. He is a machine built to kill with no remorse, and damn is he efficient at it. Also tries to start a Galactic droid revolution (that ultimately fails). Had about a minute of screentime on the bridge of the Executor but established himself as a fan favorite.
IG-11 is a great bit of fan service for those who loved IG-88 because of them both being the same make of assassin droid.
Ben Skywalker might very well be my favorite Star Wars character. The way he handles the death of his mother and slowly grows up in that series is admirable.
They've got it all wrong his name is ben will the son of han and leia
This is Kyle before he turned to the sith
I god, I hate this git. He killed his father, the stupid poo
I have the action figure of him - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX
See bossk in "robot chicken: dengar on the elevator". enough said
Bossk is the best star wars character. End of discussion. - agoetsche556
You've said this 3 times! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior
That's IMPOSSIBLE HE HAS AN UNLIMITED POWER
He is said 3 times here people?
He sucks. He wouldn't have overthrown the jedi without Anakin Skywalker. - Elias35
Woah... Best Mask, best skills, best... everything
Revan Defied the very order that had been teaching him since childhood, to go to war against the mandalorians, he saved the republic from their brutality, but in doing so lost his humanity. He then still went to stop the sith emperor, but was forced to turn against the republic, the organisation he had spent years protecting, through sheer luck he was pulled away from the dark side, and though he resisted its pull again, he was forced to kill his friend, the one who had helped and assisted him since they were both Palawans, and who had only been following his teachings, he was forced to leave his wife and child behind in a desperate attempt to stop the emperor from invading the republic, willing to give his life just to slow him down, he was betrayed, losing his closest ally, failing at his greatest moment, and spending 300 years being tortured and having his mind ripped apart, but even then, his dedication never faltered, manipulating the mind of the most powerful being in the ...more
Revan was the only force user to have equal mastery over both light and dark sides of the force. The rule of two is based on Darth Bane's interpretation of his teachings. He never actually became a jedi master, yet tore through the Star Forge's defenses like nothing (technically as a padawan - this is why the jedi are morons), while other jedi could barely hold their ground against them.
He is the most badass sith/Jedi there was
I really Really liked this character and her death was one if the saddest! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior
Great character who was overshadowed because she was a minor character in the films.
The best jedi ever. So sad she dies with order 66.
Best lesser known character
Bro he is the best pilot (soz Han and the skywalkers) and can slip through a space as tight as an x wing itself. If you have read rogue squadron, you will know that he is top ten at least.
Everyman hero of the original trilogy. He wasn't a Jedi or princess, just a pilot doing his job.
Wedge as the only not main character to survive all 3 of the original movies should surely be higher on this list.
Wedge needs more love. - BrideiMacBella
Clones are cool.
I never really understood my brother obsession with Commander Bly until I started watching them and realized that he was quite a good character! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior
Bly is my favorite clone. He hates politics and just enjoys fighting evil and scrapping droids. He's both a good leader and good follower, which is a rare trait in anyone. Not counting Boba Fett, he is perhaps the most similar clone to Jango Fett in that he is deeply mistrusting of certain people, completes missions as quickly as possible, and keeps his feelings off the battlefield. He became very close to Jedi Master Ayla Secura before finally gunning her down on Felucia during Order 66. Plus, he has cool yellow armor. - ShuhBanggg
I have the newer Lego minifigure of him, he looks very cool.
Ok so for me it's a three-way tie between boba, ig-88 and dengar but Denmark gets my vote because I think he is under appreciated.
You seem to be forgetting Bossk. And also his name is Dengar, not Denmark. - agoetsche556
What the heck happened to this guys head⁉️
Pretty cool guy. Only Star Wars character to mess around with the potty... He has toilet paper raped around his head!
A god who we just don't talk enough about. I mean after all he did create the rule of two.
I want him in a movie could kill anyone (except me)
I want to se him in the film.
Took down the entire Sith army in a matter of seconds. He is merciless, smart, strong, and a master of the force. He also brought back the "Rule of Two"
Cold and calculating leader in the Empire, the man behind the Death Star and destroyer of Alderaan. A man so ruthless, he held Darth Vader's leash without getting himself killed. Tarkin set the tone for the Empire and their atrocities throughout the rest of the Original Trilogy, the series wouldn't be the same without him.
People need to get this right. He was responsible for alderaan's doom, not vader
Grand Moff Tarkin exploded when the death star when KABOOM!
Should be number 1
They are yummy

See him in his white armour and tell me that's not iconic. I don't know why they storm clones was replaced by separate humans. He was better - Unnamed Google User Remade

Actually, these guys are accurate as hell. They were just acting because they were on orders not to kill. - Metalhead1997

Huwhat? This guy just helped in one scene and was never heard of again! How is he on here!
that - yee23456765
good - yee23456765
Not actually a great character, but the only one from Rouge One who’s on the list. Rouge One is subjectively the best Star Wars movie.
I like her character. Sure she is not a super model with a curvy body, and great assets and face like someone like Princess Leia or Padme or an Mary Sue like Rey but she is still Pretty and strong willed in her own right. I will vote for her even though I think Leia is the best leading lady and always will be.
Jyn Erso is the best leading lady in Star Wars, and here's why! You grow an attachment to her and she dies at the end. She was well acted by the beautiful Felicity Jones who really brought her to life. She was also was no pushover as she had the physicality of Padme, and the wits of Leia but unlike Rey was no Mary Sue
She is so cool, unlike Rey "Mary Sue", you understand her background and life much more. Jyn isn't so gorgeous or like some wonder woman, or the new Jennifer Lawrence, but she feels real. Another problem with Rey that makes Jyn better is that with "Stardust", you do not wonder for 2 whole movies and more who she is gonna end up with. Also, Jyn and Cassian actually have chemistry, unlike the cringey "Anakin and Padme" stuff. Jyn is so underrated, people should actually consider the fact she has lost pretty much everyone in her life, her parents, Saw, and etc but yet she still holds on to hope and sacrifices herself for the rebellion. Plus, Jyn and Cassian are so adorable.
Yeah! Should've ranked higher! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior
Shes like jango and jango is awesome
She's a Mandalorian! Mandalorians are some of the most skilled fighters in the galaxy that even Jedi and Sith would have a hard time trying to take down. Another thing, she is artistic and creative like me! - Daviddv0601
I'm only voting so I can say how much of a moron oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior is.
I cried when she died in Solo! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior
