Top Ten Most Evil Star Wars Characters

The Top Ten
1 Palpatine Palpatine

Also Emperor Palpatine is the reason these villains are so evil. He brainwashed some of them such as Darth Vader to do his bidding. He betrayed his people for the dark side

He killed his own Master, Darth Plagueis, in his sleep. Only pure evil bastards that don't have a conscious do that.

If Palpatine wasn't a Sith than almost all of these other villians would good people

Why does Emperor Palpatine look like Pope Benedict XVI?

2 Kylo Ren Kylo Ren Kyle Ren, also known as Ben Solo, is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. Kylo Ren commands the First Order with a temper as fiery as his unconventional lightsaber. Ren first appeared in 2015's Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Ben Solo, the son of Han Solo and Princess Leia, was ...read more.

Kylo Ren didn't even regret killing his father and as of episode 7 he has no reason for being a evil.

I know he is Darth Vader grandson but he should not killed his father.

I already saw the movie, but you spoiled it for everybody that hasn't.

Whenever things fail he has a meltdown an lightsabers the controls like Angry Grandpa

3 Darth Vader Darth Vader Darth Vader is a Star Wars character and the main antagonist of the first three original Star Wars films and the main protagonist of the Star Wars prequel trilogy under his original name Anakin Skywalker. He had been trained as a Jedi but defected to the Sith lord and Galactic Chancellor Palpatine. ...read more.

Darth Vader was not a villain from the beginning he became evil because he lost someone close to him

Dumb how they made him save Luke's life. He should have and could have killed him

Darth Vader is the best. He is always calm and never as angry as Kylo Ren.

Because I like him

4 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.

Would have been evil if he didn't get sliced in half in episode 1

Sorry he should be higher for killing Qui-gon

So evil he only lasted one movie.

Admiral of the Death Star

Jabba the Hutt first appeared on screen in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, and was featured in the special edition of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

Most people would say Palpatine was the most evil but I give my vote to Jabba.

The God father crossed with carmine Falcone times ten

He is my favourite slug.

Best slug in the films

7 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.

FORMER jedi.(emphasise on former) second person to use the electric force. The only other Sith to use that is the most evil person in star wars.

I admire his electricity

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. He is voiced by Matthew Wood.

Do I need to say anything? He took pleasure in slaughtering younglings.

All I have to say is four lightsabers.

I hate how they made him die.

9 General Hux General Hux General Armitage Hux is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. First introduced in the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he is portrayed by Irish actor Domhnall Gleeson.

He ordered the troopers and First Order to fire their weapon towards the Republic planets.

Basically a space Hitler.

He's an f-ing traitor.

10 Snoke Snoke Supreme Leader Snoke is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. Snoke served as the mysterious leader of the First Order. Supreme Leader Snoke is a CGI character voiced and performed by Andy Serkis.

He was only seen as a hologram in Star Ears 7, it was 25 feet tall, his real size is much smaller however, and we don't even know who he really is.

He's a giant Voldemort-like figure that was supreme leader of the First Order.

Snoke is the one who controls hux and kylo, so it makes sense he would be more tevil than em

The Contenders

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 ...read more.

Jar Jar Binks, also known as Evil Incarnate, is so sketchy in episode 1, very fun to watch, but in episode 2 and 3 he becomes a clone of the republic. Obviously Jar Jar has enough power to become 2 people at once, but 1 must have subtle motions, hence why episode 2 and 3 binks is so different.

Why isn't he number 1! He is the true sith behind star wars. He caused it all. He fooled us all! He isn't stupid and annoying, he's actually powerful, intelligent and manipulative. Evil at it's finest.

If he hadn't got Anakin's attention, Qui-Gon would've never noticed Anakin, but since Anakin did notice him, a war started.

He is Darth Plaguis reincarnated before death! He caused Order 66 and the rule of the Empire! All while doing it right infront of the jedi's noses.

16 Rey Rey Rey is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by British actress Daisy Ridley. First appearing as the central character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey is a scavenger who was left behind on the planet Jakku when she was a child, and later becomes involved with the Resistance's ...read more.

17 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.

21 Grand Inquisitor Grand Inquisitor

Powerful, could take on 2 Jedi at once

22 Bossk Bossk Bossk is a fictional Trandoshan bounty hunter in the Star Wars franchise, first appearing in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.

23 Savage Opress Savage Opress Savage Oppress is a fictional character who appeared in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Oppress was the secret apprentice and of Count Dooku and brother of Darth Maul. He is voiced by Clancy Brown.
