Top 10 Star Wars Villains


The Top Ten

1 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.

For sure, he is so dark

His Favorite Music Genre: Dark Metal - waldo

He should be number 1. - DCfnaf

Vader is not the best vill- egh egh! *dies by force choking.

P.S. Man he's awesome!

2 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.

His face is so ugly damm scary

3 Palpatine / The Emperor

The greatest character to ever exist. Maul got barely any screen time. - EmperorPalpatine

The best and most evil villain of all time, far better than vitiate. - villainlover

4 Count Dooku Count Dooku

He was bad, bad enough

Count Dooku should be at 3rd place, & he's better than Darth Maul, Dooku's the most underrated villain of all time, & his backstory is pretty tragic, but just like Darth Vader, I feel there is still some good in him and a chance of redemption.

5 General Grievous General Grievous

A really powerful evil villain

Grievous is a badass

He's a cyborg that has four lightsabers and arms at the same time? Now that's awesome!

He almost killed obi wan he had controol of a friken droid arme

6 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.

This guy is so powerful than Darth Vader.

Great character. - EmperorPalpatine

I hate this guy. - RalphBob

7 Kylo Ren Kylo Ren Kyle Ren is a fictional Sith lord, who is strong with the Force . Kylo Ren commands the First Order with a temper as fiery as his unconventional lightsaber. His debut was in 2015's Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens

By the way, this guy is wrong, he's saved by General Hux and Captain Phasma in a cruiser which takes them to Snoke. Plus, Kylo Ren is one of the most interesting movie villains ever created. His conflict between good and evil is very compelling for his character, and when he does eventually kill his father (though heartbreaking) is a great way to show how much he cares about living up to Darth Vader. In a way, he perfectly amplifies what a good movie villain is. From the original Star Wars, we really had no clue about Vader's past. (Only that he was a pupil of Obi-Wan Kenobi and that he betrayed him and was seduced to the dark side.) In The Force Awakens, we are told exactly what we need to know about this character. Kylo is one of the only people who can use the force. He is feared across the galaxy, but has never actually fought anybody in a while. Because of this, we understand that he is not all the way completely trained in the ways of the dark side. Watching this happen through ...more

SPOILER ALERT: This guy is awful because he killed his dad, Han Solo! HIS OWN FATHER, It's so satisfying to see him explode on the giant Death Star planet thingy.


8 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.
9 Jabba the Hutt Jabba the Hutt Jabba the Hutt is a character appearing in George Lucas's space opera film saga Star Wars. He is depicted as a large, slug-like alien.
10 Darth Sidious Darth Sidious

Darth Sidious is more powerful than any other villains above but together. - EmperorPalpatine

The Contenders

11 Jango Fett Jango Fett
12 Captain Phasma Captain Phasma Captain Phasma is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by Gwendoline Christie. Introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the first film in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, Phasma is the commander of the First Order's force of stormtroopers.
13 Thrawn

He is one of the best Star Wars villains ever. Also how the h*ll is Captain Phasma higher than him?

14 Greedo Greedo
15 Asajj Ventress Asajj Ventress Asajj Ventress is a fictional character from the Star Wars franchise during the Clone Wars, appearing in the Clone Wars micro-series, and in The Clone Wars film and television series. V 1 Comment
16 Darth Revan Darth Revan

Even though he's a sith, he's not REALLY a villain. In KOTOR he is the playable character, and Malak is the villain.

17 Nute Gunray Nute Gunray Nute Gunray was the Viceroy of the Trade Federation. He was involved with the blockade of the planet Naboo. He also was a member of the Separatist Council, and was murdered by Darth Vader on Mustafar.

Gunray, altough he did little, was an important but small part of the prequels and an interesting character idea.

Dave Fennoy voiced him

19 Darth Vitiate
20 General Hux
