Top Ten Star Wars Rebels Characters

The Top Ten

1 Grand Admiral Thrawn Grand Admiral Thrawn Grand Admiral Thrawn is a Chiss male from the Star Wars universe. He first appeared in Star Wars Heir to the Empire. Thrawn has more recently appeared in Star Wars Rebels, and also has a novel that was released in April 2017, titled Thrawn. In summer of 2018, Thrawn: Alliances will be released, where more.

Grand Admiral Thrawn is the best villain in Star Wars Rebels, possibly the Star Wars Universe. He knows the rebels, he's studied their history, philosophy and art. Some people think he is smarter than Tarkin and should take his place, but I feel he is good at what he does whether he is smarter than Tarkin or not. He knows what it takes to win a war, he is absolutely insane. He stole Season 3 of Star Wars Rebels, without him it would have been a huge train wreck. Just waiting to see how his story concludes in Season 4, maybe he will kill Rukh instead, opposite of his fate in the old non-canon comics. Timothy Zahn hit a home-run with this one, I am so glad LucasFilm and Dave Filoni brought him into Star Wars Rebels. I am just dying to see Season 4, I simply can not wait enough. Star Wars Rebels was the best thing to come out of Disney's acquisition of LucasFilm in my opinion.

Something about this guy really creeps me out. He is a genius, though

I'm glad they made him as or even more likeable than he was before.

Awesome villain from the books, he's really smart and patient. I Admire his battle tactics.

"To defeat an Enemy you must Know them, Not just simply their battle tactics but their History, Philosiphy, art"

"I Will start my Operations here and Tear the rebellion apart Piece by piece. They will be the Architects of their Own Destruction"

"Do you know the difference between a Error and a mistake, Ensign? Anyone can make a error, ensign, But it doesn't become a Mistake untill you Fix it"

2 Maul

Killing him was destined to happen, but the way he died was just disappointing. He should have died in an epic duel with Vader - Bswaggers

Maul is awesome! He was awesome in the Clone Wars, he is awesome in Rebels! - Daviddv0601

Maul is the best character in the Star Wars franchise and I think killing him was a BIG mistake

Maul is EPIC!

3 Grand Moff Tarkin Grand Moff Tarkin Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe. Tarkin was Governor of the Outer Rim territories, and eventually earned the rank of Grand Moff in the Galactic Empire. Tarkin was also in charge of the production of the Death Star. Tarkin is killed when the Death Star is more.

Bringing him back was a mistake. Very weak, hard to fall for and a world class jerk. His name sounds like a brewery. People, there was a REASON the first death star blew up.

Tarkin is the only character I actually love from episode 4 and the sequels in general! Plus, villains who are jerks are the best kind of character there is! So bringing Tarkin back was the only good thing about Rebels aside from Thrawn and Maul, who are also in my top ten! - PrinceZarbon

A great original triligy characters brought back

4 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.

Darth Vader is totally awesome

Vader was not portrayed as good in rebels as in the movies but was still cool - Bswaggers

5 Ahsoka Tano Ahsoka Tano Ahsoka Tano is a character in the Star Wars franchise. Introduced as the Padawan apprentice of Anakin Skywalker, she is a central protagonist of both the 2008 animated film Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the subsequent TV series.

She is my Favourite Star Wars Character Ever!

Love her.

6 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.
7 Ezra Bridger Ezra Bridger

It's never often that I prefer the main character but Ezra Bridger is an amazing character. - Daviddv0601

I don't like him.

I really do like him as a character

Ezra Bridger is so savage he's basically Anakin of rebels as well as Sabine as Padm'e and Kanan as Obi-wan

8 Agent Kallus

Search failure. His name might come up

9 Sabine

Sabine should be higher. She is 16 years old, she blows stuff up, and she is beautiful

Okay world, just admit it, she's awesome, - AnonymousChick

Your right she is awesome

I love Sabine! If you haven't seen trials of the darksaber you MUST! It is amazing! There is some Ezbine too ❤️. She is an artist, a Mando, and awesome!

10 Kanan Jarrus

Man, I love kanan

He is the best character
He is caring, brave, wise and intelligent and he is like a father for Ezra and he is a best teacher for Ezra

Kanan's is hands down one of the most interesting and well developed characters of the series. The rest of the crew is cool too, and they all deserve credit, but Kanan man. The "Cowboy" Jedi is what did it for me and he just seems to have this mysterious background.

The creators knew right off the bat that they created an awesome character for the series and just to add more upon him, the friggen dude even has his own comic series (which is great by the way) and his own book.

If you’ve seen the new episode “Jedi night” than you know why Kanan should be top

The Contenders

11 The Grand Inquisitor

The Grand Inquisitor is number one!

He was awesome, but he died in season 1. That was dissappointing - pancake2015

12 Zeb

Zeb is a real warrior

He is a Strong Warrior who is also both funny and kind!

He's cool

He's Funny

13 Hera

Hera is by far the most believable and consistent character. I'm in equal outrage that she isn't even in the top ten. There is a difference between the best characters and the most popular ones, it's a shame she isn't near the top of the list.

Why the heck is Hera so low?!?! She should replace Ezra!

Hera is the glue of the team, she does so much for the rebellion.

And Darth Maul is on this list twice! - booksaremylife
