Top Ten Original Trilogy Star Wars Characters

The ten greatest characters from the original (and best) trilogy of Star Wars.
The Top Ten
1 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 Sidious aka Emperor Palpatine a close second

He is the best villain in all of cinematic history

The greatest star wars villain

Obviously the best

2 Han Solo Han Solo is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed in films by Harrison Ford. In the original film trilogy, Han and his co-pilot, Chewbacca, become involved in the Rebel Alliance which opposes the Galactic Empire.

Out of all of the characters in the original trilogy, this guy has the most personality, probably the most developed, probably the toughest hero, and just a pretty good role model, even though he's an egomaniac.

Very glad to see Han Solo in the top ten. Rest in peace Han Solo, you will be remembered forever. (If you are a Star Wars fan and haven't seen episode 7 I am disappointed).

When the characters are in sticky situations, you'll always have him as comic relief

He is a real sweetie

3 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.

He's the main protagonist why is boba felt further up on the list? Boba doesn't really do anything he's just a cool guy. Like is a cool guy and is the most important character

What the heck. Luke is amazing. He should be in the first place. First of all Darth Vader isn't strong, Han is so arrogant and who is Boba Fett?

He didn't really kill vader, vaders sith master killed him, and luke is the best cause he is a good guy and refused to leave darth vader behind when he was dying.

Yeah how is Han and boba higher than him? This is the guy who saves everyone.Boba deft did not really do anything and Han is more like the wise cracking guy.

4 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.

As Yoda once said, 'In the top ten, I shall be'

Everybody vote for our little green friend.

Green team all the way

I like baby yoda better give me all of your chicky nuggies

5 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.

Mandalorians are the best warriors in Star Wars. If you know anything about the Star Wars expanded universe you would know the boba fett escaped the Sarlacc pit and became the Mand'alor. Again, if you know anything about the EU you would know what the Mand'alor is. (If you don't know it's the leader of the mandalorians.) also boba fett is the only one of an elite group of bounty hunters to track down Han Solo.

U guys just like him because of his armor and helmet. To be honest the only thing he does is track down Han Solo and give him to Jaba the hutt

Boba Fett is overrated. He's cool, but he doesn't have enough screen time. He needs to be lower on the list.

Boba Fett is the only character in the trilogy to talk back to Vader and get away with it.

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

Obi Wan is a badass and a gentleman.

7 Chewbacca Chewbacca, nicknamed "Chewie", is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. He is a Wookiee, a tall, hirsute biped and intelligent species from the planet Kashyyyk. Chewbacca is the co-pilot of the Millenuim Falcon, and is best friends with Han Solo.

He's the BEST charecters ever!

CHEWBACCA IS MY FAVORITE STAR WARS CHARACTER IN THE WORLD ON SHOULD I SAY IN A GALAXY FAR FAR AWAY

8 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.

Leis is the best character of the trilogy. She makes me hard in every episode. Every time I watch one of the original three I just dream of her sitting on my face while I tongue that a$$.

Leia has that nasty mole on her lower back like a tramp stamp yo. I still hit it... An I be usin' that mole as a target. you be seein' that mole in ROTJ when she wear in' the slave girl outfit. I don't like that name because we all kno the only slaves was my beautiful black people

She is the prettiest character of all of the character I the trilogy.

Iconic and gorgeous

9 The Emperor

"Something something something Dark Side. Something something something now complete."

The Dark Lord of the Sith, and ruler of the Empire. He's Vader's master

Only eleventh!Know the power of the dark sidePower

10 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.

How is he so low. I mean he should definitely be higher than Boba fett I mean everyone should. I don’t like the emperor. Darth Vader/ Anakin skywalker, Han Solo, Luke skywalker, Yoda , Obi wan kenobi, Chewbacca and Princess Leia. All good characters but R2-D2 is my favourite

R2d2 is my favourite droid because he's so damn feisty

Cute and funny... And a robot

R2 D2 is my favorite

The Contenders
11 C-3PO
12 Lando Calrissian Lando Calrissian is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. He is portrayed by Billy Dee Williams in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, and will be played by Donald Glover in the upcoming standalone Han Solo Star Wars movie.

Lando deserves some credit for being an awesome, loving, and handsome character. I don't care if he betrayed Han, Darth Vader just forced him. He was a Smuggler and Hero all in one package.

Lando can be annoying. In Rebels, Hera doesn't put up with Lando's "charm"

Hello what have we here?

Lando's a dick to others

13 Admiral Ackbar Admiral Gial Ackbar is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. A member of the amphibious Mon Calamari species, Ackbar was the foremost military commander of the Rebel Alliance who led major combat operations against the Galactic Empire.

Great character. definitely should be higher.

15 Wedge Antilles

Most underrated Star Wars character

16 Greedo Greedo (or Greedo the Young) is a fictional character from the Star Wars franchise. He is portrayed by Paul Blake as well as Maria De Aragon in some close-in pickup shots in Star Wars (1977).

He's on the bad list and the goodlist, this is so pointless

Greedo is cool until he's dead

17 Bossk

So underrated

18 Admiral Piett

Veerst is better.

19 Bib Fortuna

He's very interesting character I like how him and Jaba were in episode 1

20 IG-88
21 4-LOM

I mean come on! we gotta love 4-lom to me,he's the cutiest,weirdest droid I've ever seen!

22 Biggs Darklighter
23 Mara Jade Skywalker Mara Jade Skywalker is a character in the Star Wars universe. She originally served as The Emperor's Hand to Emperor Palpatine during the reign of the Galactic Empire. After the Emperor's death, Mara Jade went on to become a smuggler. Later, she became a Jedi, and eventually married Luke Skywalker. ...read more.

She wasn't in the movies tho.

24 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.

What he's a piece of snot he shouldn't even be on the list

25 Owen Lars

Owen Lars is pitiful. He couldn't save his wife because he was floating on that chair of his.
