Top Ten Star Wars Prequel Trilogy Characters

These are the greatest characters from Star Wars' prequel trilogy.

The Top Ten

1 Obi Wan Kenobi Obi Wan Kenobi Obi-Wan Kenobi is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, played by Sir Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor.

He fought in more duels than any other character throughout the whole franchise. In the original trilogy, they may have not shown much of Obi-Wan's actions. But in the prequels, they showed Obi-Wan was such a skilled and fierce knight and he wins in almost all of the fights he's been. He is the reason why the prequels is so good. He fought and defeated Darth Maul, almost defeated Jango Fett (kicked his butt at least), survived his battles with Dooku, dueled and killed Grievous, and finally defeated Anakin Skywalker. I think he should be number one, and should even outrank Yoda cause we get to see him more in action and he wins at least in two or three of his many battles.

Kenobi was one of the main and loved characters out of all the other Star Wars episodes. Without him, there would be no Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker who is also a loved character. Obi Wan obviously deserves the #1 slot. He was also very powerful and wise Jedi. The best teacher, he was.

Obi wan is the picture perfect Jedi. He's on the council, has a cool lightsaber, and defeated maul, grievous, and Anakin. He is really well portrayed by ewan mcgregor, and he is the guy who you always route for in the prequel trilogy

2 Anakin Skywalker Anakin Skywalker

He should be number 1 the whole trilogy is based around him from when he was a boy to when he became vader he is very powerful but never gets credit for it he just wanted to save padme from death it's to bad palpatine sees the whole thing from day 1

He's really cool I say he should be number one. He killed count dooku and emperor Palpatine. And they say he's the coolest Jedi. All I can say

He was a bit annoying in the first one and he has his moments in the second. But this man is a straight up badass in the revenge of the sith! - GrimmShady

I love anakin in episode 3 but in the first 2 lets be honest he is a whiny little brat and he can kill himself

3 Chancellor / Emperor Palpatine

He should be first because in the end he won and took over the senate along with the galaxy and took "the Chosen One" as his apprentice. He played everyone and no one expected it. And don't forget he beat yoda in single combat, achieving dun moch.

Palpatine was a horrible character with an ugly personality even before he got deformed. Though the actor is amazing at acting. - Anonymousxcxc

Excellent actor, really helped save the prequels for me.

4 Yoda Yoda Yoda is a fictional character in the Star Wars space opera franchise created by George Lucas, first appearing in the 1980 film The Empire Strikes Back.

Yoda all the way, but he looked a bit weird in this movie prefer the original trilogy yoda to prequel yoda

Not so much my favorite. It should be Obi Wan THEN Yoda on my opinion.

Yoda:he raised a ship before it was cool

I am not a dinosaur

5 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.

He's the best in the prequels. Si thanks George Lucas for killing him after 10 minutes

If you've seen the Clone Wars, he becomes number one for anybody instantly.

He is badass

6 Mace Windu Mace Windu Mace Windu is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, portrayed by actor Samuel L. Jackson in the prequel films.

Mace Windu was the Jedi Master who created Vappad. He was the second in command to Yoda. In a battle between Yoda and Mace, Mace would have an extreme edge. He also has the coolest lightsaber color out of any other Jedi.

Purple lightsaber, need I say more?

Mace the force be with you...

7 Qui-Gon Jinn Qui-Gon Jinn Qui-Gon Jinn is a fictional character in the Star Wars saga, portrayed by Liam Neeson and is one of the main protagonists in the 1999 film Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.

Qui Gon is my favorite character.

Such a calm and helpful character, felt so awful when he died - O0812528

Oh, Yeah!

best ever!

8 R2-D2 R2-D2 R2-D2 or Artoo-Detoo is a fictional robot character in the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas, who appears in the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, and the sequel trilogy.

If R2 wasn't in it PADME would have died in the fire (in 2 the clone wars) and LUKE and LEIA wouldn't have been born.

I sometimes think that r2-d2 is the main character... I mean think about it: he has always been important in every episode and is still living... Take that anikan

Why is R2-D2 not number one.

9 Count Dooku Count Dooku

I would have to say that besides Darth Vader, Dooku is beyond my favorite Star Wars villain. He defeated Obi Wan and Anakin and also managed to hold his own against Yoda all in episode 2. For a gent in his 70's, he moved around pretty quick. Plus, he has one of the coolest lightsaber hilts in all of Star Wars! He should at least be in the top ten.

Why is he disliked? Not only does he have the most epic lightsaber, but CHRISTOPHER LEE PLAYS HiM!

Dooku is awesome! I had no idea he was so disliked! Why!? Because he's old? Emperor is old! Obi Wan was old! Dooku is a great villain, plain and simple. - evoxpisces

Criminally underrated and overshadowed

Need I say more he is funny

R2-D2 is better.Sorry Star Geek.

The Contenders

11 General Grievous General Grievous

Best design of the prequels and an overall cool character. He was a very good metaphor for anakin, subtle even. That's amazing for George Lucas anyway. His importance to the story was short lived, but he adds something to the sepertists and is still the most unique villain in all of the movies. No force, just four light Sabres and an iconic cough.

Grievous wasn't nearly as tough in Revenge of the Sith as he was in the 2003 Clone Wars series. - pancake2015

My favorite General Grievous quote is "Army or not, you must realize you are doomed."

Incredible CGI, especially for a film that came out in 2005. I thought it was a animatronic when I kid!

12 Padmé Amidala

She is one of of the Most important characters. Because she is the mother of luke and Leia.

She absolutely amazing and she shows that girl can be strong. Also she is a huge plot point.

Why is she 15? If she wasn't in it LUKE and LEIA wouldn't have been born.

Obviously the best character. My personal favorite so swagger! :D I have done bazillions of drawings of her, and they are awesome! Totally best. Don't understand why only no. 10

13 Jango Fett Jango Fett

He is BETTER than Boba.

He is boba fett but blue and his father he is pretty damn cool if you ask me killed in in the second prequal movie he should have lasted longer it would be cool to se him in the upcoming Star Wars

Best character ever. Without him there would be no clone army,which means there would not be the Empire,WHICH means there would not be Darth Vader. Boba gets all the love that he doesn't deserve. Jango for the win! - TopTener

Jango fett is my other favorite star wars character and iv'e been noticing that there has been video game about him called star wars bounty hunter that came out in 2002 but I never got to play it but I'm sure there will more video games about him and it would be so cool that he would have his own animated T.V. show called jango fett bounty hunter

14 Darth Vader Darth Vader Darth Vader was the original dark lord for Star Wars. Darth Vader ruled with both fear and aggression. Originally Anakin Skywalker a young Jedi who was then seduced by the dark side of the force by Chancellor Palpatine/Darth Sidious. Vader had his limbs cut off by his jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi leaving more.

Technically he's the same guy as Anakin because they are the same person so because of that technicality (even though Darth Vader is the best Star Wars character ever) get him off this list. - Anonymousxcxc

Only really gets a few minutes at the end of episode 3

Ummm... Why? He is a much better character in the original and had a bigger and better role.

This boi got rekt by Anakin, Luke and many other Jedi - MagmaFox

After he murdered Tenebrous, Plagueis, disguised as businessman Hego Demask, mentored a young Palpatine. Palpatine eventually joined Plagueis as his Sith apprentice. Plagueis more.

He was only mentioned in Revenge of the Sith, but never appeared. - pancake2015

16 Kit Fisto Kit Fisto Kit Fisto Is a Jedi from the Star Wars universe who appeared in Star Wars, Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars, Episode III: Revenge Of the Sith, and also appeared in the TV show, Star Wars the Clone Wars,
