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.

Obi Wan is the best that could happen to the prequels. I don't actually hate the prequels. They might be very flawed and have some dumb dialogues and annoying characters, but there are many things I appreciate it. And Obi Wan Kenobi is my absolute favorite of the Star Wars saga.

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.

2 Chancellor / Emperor Palpatine

Don't you mean The Senate? - rankist

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.

3 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

Only the best ;-)

4 Anakin Skywalker Anakin Skywalker Anakin Skywalker is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. He appears in the original trilogy as a main and pivotal antagonist serving the Galactic Empire, while his past as Anakin Skywalker and the story of his corruption are the focus of the prequel trilogy.

If they wrote him like they did in episode III we would have one of the best characters in the prequel series. It is a shame it took until episode III to get the prequels right. - Stalin

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

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

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

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.

Everyone above him was an original trilogy character except Anakin, and Anakin is terrible. He should be 4 at least

He should be first!

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.

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.

One of my all time favorite Star Wars characters - SharkWithAHat

Purple lightsaber, need I say more?

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.

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.

He is great character that exemplifies what is means to be a jedi, plus he is the reason we have force ghosts in the original trilogy.

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

Qui Gon is my favorite character.

Oh, Yeah!

8 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.

Give this guy some cough drops!

He is the coolest looking droid and the most epic. but he always forgets he fought obi one a million time before and is shorter that expected

Cough cough

"Crush them. Make them suffer! (Cough)".

9 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.

Solo's the first movie that R2-D2 or Threepio haven't appeared...
OR did they?

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.

10 Count Dooku Count Dooku Count Dooku of Serenno, from the House of Dooku is a fictional character from the Star Wars franchise, appearing in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith as a primary and minor antagonist respectively. He was portrayed by Christopher Lee and more.

Interesting character, great actor, awful execution and his death was a tremendous waste of Christopher Lee, by far this is the best Sith in the movie, since Darth Wader with his entire origin (I don't like sands is the tip of the iceberg), Maul dies too early and with Sidius I have no idea where to start

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.

Criminally underrated and overshadowed

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


The Contenders

11 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.

12 C-3PO C-3PO

Need I say more he is funny

Yes - HufflepuffGeekGirl

R2-D2 is better.Sorry Star Geek.

13 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.

He is BETTER than Boba.

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

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

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

17 Plo Koon Plo Koon

Plo Koon was the Jedi master who could really kick some butt. He was the first Jedi to have a fist lightsaber. He also has 3 lightsaber colors: blue, yellow, and orange. Plo Koon would be defiantly be on my top ten favorite Jedi list.

Great Jedi. However, his character shone to its potential in the Clone Wars. - pancake2015

Koon is my favorite jedi

Dis boi got rekt by Order 66 - MagmaFox

Bad SOB.

19 Watto

The gambling bug

He's cool in 1 and 2 I like him

He is very annoing.

20 Commander Cody

31 Queen Amidala

32 Shmi Skywalker

Think about it, without Schmi, no Star Wars! Without Schmi, no Anakin, no Darth Vader, no adventure whatsoever! Maybe you should thank Anakin for being born, but I'm thanking Schmi!

She start the Skywalker famale.

33 Roos Tarpals

€Youssa in big doodoo dis time”

He should be higher on the list than some of the characters with no lines surely? He dies a hero’s death in the clone wars.

34 Sabe
35 Tusken Raider
36 Jar Jar Binks Jar Jar Binks Jar Jar Binks is a fictional character from the Star Wars saga created by George Lucas. A major character in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, he also has a smaller role in Episode II: Attack of the Clones, and a one-line cameo in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and the television series more.

...oh mother (bleep) - Gehenna

Why is the most stupid and unwanted character of Star Wars on this list? That is what I want to know. He also ruined the whole saga of star Wars.

He didn't ruin the whole saga the terrible writing of Episode one through three ruined it. - germshep24

Moi Moi. Actually made phantom menace bearable to watch without falling asleep, such a boring movie, but jar jar helped a bit, an that one reddit theory

Jar Jar Binks is what made the Phantom Menace watchable. The movie was so boring. This character made it slightly less boring. - moore770

37 Poggle the Lesser

I really don't know why, but he's just cool. Then again, I'm partial to Geonosians in general.

38 Clone Troopers

They are the best, they made the best scene in all the prequels (order 66) and without them, palpatines empire wouldn't have existed

The best army in all of star wars

Their like droids, they die really fast and are really bad at shooting.

39 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.

Yes he does, in episode 2 he appears as a child

What? Boba fett is not even in these movies

40 Luke Skywalker Luke Skywalker Luke Skywalker is a fictional character appearing as the central protagonist of the original film trilogy, and as a supporting character in the sequel trilogy of the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas.

That scene with Yaeral Poof and him taking down the droid Army was my favorite.

41 Sebulba

Anakin's rival in the Mos Espa Podrace! A.K.A cool guy!

42 Princess Leia Princess Leia Princess Leia Organa, later known as General Leia Organa, is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed in films by Carrie Fisher.

One of the most powerful Female Characters.
