Top Ten Most Pointless Star Wars Characters

The characters that Star Wars could have done without.
The Top Ten
1 Jar Jar

Now I don't watch Star Wars, but HOLY COW, this character is one the UGLIEST things I've ever laid my eyes on. I mean look at him, he's hideous. His face makes me want to vomit every time I look at it. Plus, he's supposed to appeal to kids, but I don't really understand how children are going find this character funny when they can clearly how physically unappealing this character is. They'd rather run away crying in fear and disgust! Bleugh!

No, let me explain. Without Jar jar, Qui Gon Jinn and Obi Wan Kenobi wouldn't have found the Gungan City which provided the submarine that transports them to Naboo, in which Padme rode the spaceship to Coruscant, while finding Anakin. If Jar jar wasn't alive they wouldn't have found Anakin. Without Anakin discovering his powers, there wouldn't have been any Darth Vader. So if Jar jar wasn't alive the Original Trilogy wouldn't have happened. Huh.

I heard that he was meant to be 'the next Chewbacca', like what? Chewbacca doesn't talk. And if it did then I'm pretty sure he would not spout out any of the pointless dribble that Jar Jar Bink's does. If he was made to appeal to stupid little children I'm pretty sure it didn't work, because I hated him as a child and I despise him even more now. Congrats on ruining the movies for millions of fans Jar Jar, gold star.

Ok all of the characters on this list have purpose. But Jar jar was put in the movies just for small children's amusement. I do want to point out that jar jar changed the fate of the galaxy when he rallied the senate to give palpatine all the emergency in the clone wars. Without that there would be no clone wars, no murder of the Jedi, no rise of the sith, no empire, no rebellion...

2 Boss Nass

I agree he is annoying, but he did provide a ship for jar jar, qui gon, and Obi wan, as well as an army to fend off the battle droids, so he is kind of important to episode one.

Looks like a giant frog!

Jabba the hut jr.

3 Rose Tico

They threw her in the movie because she's Asian but they forgot to give her a role. I would love a strong powerful female Asian Star Wars Character. But that's not what they have us. I love Diversity but the point of Diversity isn't just throwing a bunch of different ethnicities into a movie with no direction. We want goodly written diverse characters for representation. We're not just gonna like a character just because they are a certain race.

This list was made too early. Rose is a totally pointless character, they added her for the heck of it, she's unneeded and does nothing worth mentioning. Her kiss with Finn had no buildup, and felt forced and very awkward as a result. Hope she dies soon

At least Jar Jar had a purpose which is giving Palpatine his powers. All Rose Tico did was save some animal horse thingy and saved Finn.

Why only at 10 she contributes absoulty nothing to star wars but stupid diversity but does nothing heck jar jar is more useful than her. jar jar helped get palpetine as emperoer but rose she did nothing but save finn another character that's bascally only there for diversity

4 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.

Let's get something straight I AM NOT VOTING. I am writing this comment. What the hell is boba fett doing on this list?!?! May I remind some people of the Star Wars expanded universe? In the EU boba became the leader of the mandalorians. And in episode five he is the ONLY one of an elite group of bounty hunters to track down Han Solo. And in the new marvel comic Star Wars: Skywalker strikes and Star Wars: Darth Vader, he tells Vader that he has a son. So boba fett is directly responsible for the ending of Star Wars the empire strikes back.

Why does everyone love Boba so much, he does nothing cool. And he has the lamest death of all time. He says nothing, does virtually nothing, and is only popular because he looks cool.

But please, go ahead. I know what your typing, tell me how he is totally redeemed in the joke of an expanded universe that is the Star Wars EU.

Not at all pointless without him han would never be frozen he caused jabbas death because of that and when he was a child he was the main clone. in the clone wars T.V. series he was very important he killed so many as well as did some good stuff so I don't see him as pointless at all

The only point of the character was to deliver Han Solo to Jabba the Hutt, in 'The Empire Strikes Back. ' So why he has such a huge fan base is mind boggling.

5 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.

Saying he sucks because he's ugly, creepy, a criminal, ugly, slimy, fat, etc. missed the point. He's SUPOSED to be that way. Also, he plays a big role: it's because of him that Solo is captured, he composes the whole start of RotJ AND, to top it all off, he is the reason Boba, a very popular (although overrated) appears on screen

He was in episode one, four, and six. At least 3 episodes, that makes him pretty relevant.

Jabba The Hut sucks! He's so pointless. He should be #1 plus he's worst than Jar Jar binks.

Jabba The Hutt is the only Star Wars character that I really hate, he's ugly disgusting and creppy, espacially in episode six.

6 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).

No way should he be here. I'm not saying he plays a huge role in anything but he does two moderately important things: he helps set up han solo's character in episode IV and helped build up the events of the beginning of episode VI.

Jar Jar had some importance, as he gave palpatinr emergency powers. I hate Jar Jar much more, but Greedo was the most pointless person in the film's, as he did nothing.

What does he have to do with anything. He's on screen for about 30 seconds confronting Han then just gets his face blown up. Pointless, didn't do anything

All he did was start huge fan wars about who shot first.
Obviously, it was Han. (:
I'm talking about the original one. Not the ones George Lucas has changed. Only the original.

7 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.

Just the worst Star Wars character in my opinion. His fight with Obi Wan is absolute garbage filmmaking. He takes up too much screen time and just takes important time that could go into Anakin's character development or developing Obi Wan and Anakin's friendship. He's not even cool, just a stupid coughing robot that gets taken out way too easily to be seen as a threat. L-A-M-E

General Grievous Is awesome, he coughs because he is a actual cyborg. He was a reptile but got shot by Count Dooku. Dooku went and rebuild him as a cyborg which explains the lungs and the eyes sawed in III.

Is this a joke? General Grievous was one of the biggest threats to the Republic. How is he not important? Without Grievous, the Galactic Empire would not have been possible.

He does have a point in Star Wars! He was a major purpose in the order 66 plan with the emperor! Plus, He's an awesome villain! What's he doing on this list? Enspeically this high? He's my favorite Star Wars villain!

8 TC-14

She actually appears in Empire Strikes back. When C3PO is investigating that room in which he saw TC14 walk out of, he says hello to her and she replies with something offensive. So she does appear in more than one film, BUT she is still pointless

C3Po was fussy but he was still a hero. Tc-14 is only in for like a minute at the beginning of The Phantom menace and thinks she's in charge during her conversation with the Jedi.

I'm only voting for her because I don't want someone as awesome as Boba Fett to be in third place.

9 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.

She piloted the Millennium Falcon, first try. She fixed the Millennium Falcon before Han ' Solo did. She beat Kylo Ren with the force, despite not knowing what it was 24 hours previously. She had never picked up a blaster and was a perfect shot with it every time after a single miss. She beat Kylo Ren, who had presumably trained for years under Luke Skywalker and Snoke. His training wasn't complete, but it almost was, as demonstrated by the fact that he was literally undergoing a final trial of faith.
She is not useless to the Force Awakens.
But she IS useless to the entire Star Wars universe, just like the entire movie was.

It seems that the people who voted Rey into the top ten are just people who have sour grapes about the Force Awakens. Rey is actually a better character than Luke in my opinion. The main reason people hate the movie and character and the movie is because she isn't Luke and the movie isn't the originals.

Even though the supposed central character, she was the one in Force Awakens that you don't think much about after film. Besides her maybe being a Skywalker nothing much else there to talk about. In a film that seems to have less black and white and more grey, she is less interesting.

Jumping the gun here. At least wait until the sequel trilogy is finished to form a proper opinion. Personally I thought she was great in the Force Awakens. Yes, I will admit that the film was just a rethread of A New Hope, but for what we saw of Rey, I was pleased.

10 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.

Nute gunray is just useless he is a pawn for darth sideous and appears to have no measure of personal desire or will. We are not told his motivations and his person is just cgi useless crap

The racist Chinese guy. Good job that Anakin killed him.

The Contenders
11 C3PO C-3PO is a humanoid robot character from the Star Wars franchise who appears in the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy and the sequel trilogy.

I love C3PO but despise R2,why do people like R2 better? 3PO is the perfect example of a brit.

I know it was too dangerous! Why can he talks 3000 languages and be afraid of everything!

No, C3PO is awesome. He appeared in every movie and face so many dangers and lived! In II with the battles droids, IV by stormtroopers, V by Stormtroopers and Darth Vader along with AT-ATs, and VI by Ewoks and Stormtroopers along with AT-STS! He is awesome and should not be on the list.

He'a the only reason I kept watching the movies to the end, without him I would have gotten bored to death.

12 Maz Kanata Maz Kanata is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. Introduced in the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, she is a CGI character voiced and performed through motion capture by Lupita Nyong'o.

She hasn't had a chance to do anything yet! She was in 1 movie...she will be important soon

She was an okay character. She wasn't pointless

13 Sebulba

Me. Why is anakin laying dead on the floor with blood.
Sebula. Uh.
Me. I will kill you
Sebula. Ah.
Blood flies

He just added more minutes to the already horrible Phantom Menace

14 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.

His death was so scary. I mean, you saw him get beheaded. Nobody lives through that, not for long anyway. I mean sometimes the brain is still active for a few minutes after the beheading but... To be honest you guys I can't imagine a worse kind of hell.

They could've done another storyline and not include him sure but in the story he is one of the most important characters. He is the reason the Republic had an army and without that the empire would never have came and nothing would have happened - Unnamed Google User Remade

Jango Fett had a purpose. He was the one who actually helped the republic create an army.

He's more pointless than Boba Fett.

15 Ziro The Hut
16 Finn FN-2187 (Finn) is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. He first appeared in the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens in which he is a stormtrooper for the First Order who flees and turns against it after being shocked by their cruelty in his first combat mission. He is portrayed by English ...read more.

He doesn't do anything. Rey is our hero! Replace this character with Rey right now!

I know sidekicks are almost always useless but he just sucks at everything he does. like he had combat training in the empire and still managed to get stunned by a riot trooper while weilding a lightsaber.

Finn is awesome there is nothing wrong with him if anything he is better than jar jar

17 L3-37
18 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 ...read more.

This character had no reason to exist for 13 years. Until 2012 he was only a cool looking Sith. He had no large influence on the star wars galaxy. He was just there to look cool. It wasn't until he was put into the Clone Wars that he actually did something and even then all he did was get in the way of Obi Wan, do some stuff on Mandalore, and make Ezra act like he was going to the dark side for a couple of episode.

Most overrated character. All he did was a random with lord who barely was scene in 15 minutes of the film. His only point was to kill qui gon forcing Obi wan to take anakin as his padawan, which might I add anyone could have done. In reality, he is just an overrated guy with horns and face paint, and a useless double sided lightsaber. Seriously, what is the point to that?

Darth Maul is even more important than every other Star Wars character combined including Luke! So anyone who thinks Darth Maul isn't important can just go ahead and choke on a muffin because they are all complete IDIOTS!

Maul was only created to look cool, he serves no real point (like many of the new characters in phantom menace) and to make him worse, he somehow survived being cut in half and fought in the clone wars.

19 Padme Amidala Padmé Amidala is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, appearing in the prequel trilogy portrayed by actress Natalie Portman.

Padme didn't need to exist, in fact, the entire prequel trilogy never had to exist for Star Wars to tell a whole story. The original trilogy told us enough about Darth Vader's backstory. It's clear George wanted to capitalize on the name of Star Wars for as long as possible. Unlike her daughter, Padme is a bland character with no spunk or charisma. She's just boring to watch. And she has the worst character downgrade in Star Wars history. By ROTS, Padme was restricted to being a housewife who dies of a broken heart. Sad that she couldn't even live for her children. No offense to Natalie Portman, it's not my intention to make fun of her. In the story, she is obviously important though as she is the wife of Darth Vader and the mother of Luke and Leia, but she didn't need to exist.

Another case of sexism. She is a senator who is super smart and good. And the prequels brought the worst Star Wars characters. She is also there so men have a reason to watch the prequels

I am outraged at whoever thinks Padme's character is pointless. Did she not fight in battles? Did she not give birth to Luke and Leia? If it wasn't for Padme, we wouldn't have Darth Vader. Padme was what let Anakin to the dark side, in fear that he would lose her. It was all about her.

How could Padme be on this list! That makes no sense at all! If you don't agree with me you're just sour because Hayden Christensen isn't the best actor. Also a lot of people just hate the prequels. If you don't believe me you need to watch Attack of the Clones.

20 Zam Wesell

She doesn't exactly have a big part. She could have been as good as other bounty hunters if jango didn't kill her. She's a great female role that probably could have gone further. But lucasfilm gave her a 5 minute part and then she died. Classic for star wars

There may not be much said about her, but I on the other hand thought that she was one awesome bounty hunter.

21 Ezra Bridger

Who's this half Indian half Arabian bad face who could draw this and say oh yes lets make a star wars animation with him I mean who's deciding this I would say this is the worst star wars character ever and seriously just look at his dumb face and bad hair Disney should kill him before he lays eggs... pointless and dumb nothing more..

He was part of the original rebels! Before a new hope and everything! He played a part by kicking off the entire rebellion

The most annoying and terrible character of all...even worse than Jar Jar. Holdo, Rose, Jyn round out the top five worst.

He is not even in the real star wars, that is star wars rebels!

22 Watto

Uglier than my sister. Well, maybe not.

23 Jyn Erso Jyn Erso is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by English actress Felicity Jones in the 2016 film Rogue One.

The protagonist overshadowed by all the supporting cast in all possible ways: acting, dialogue, development, charisma, action scenes...
She's the most derivative and bland character of the Disney era.

She was a main character in one movie! That is not pointless non - sensicle espes!

Kinda ugly but kinda hot.

24 Admiral Holdo
25 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. Ren's real identity is Ben Solo, the son of Han Solo and Princess Leia. He was trained ...read more.

Jar Jar was, for a long time, the worst Star Wars character ever made, but now, ever since Kylo Ren's behaviors took place, and because of what he did to one of the best characters of all time, he now surpasses Jar Jar as the worst SW character of all time.

Seriously #28. Kylo Ren is the weakest villain in history and plus the top 4 pointless star wars characters are:
4. Jango Fett
3. jar Jar Binks
2. Kylo Ren
1. Jabba The Hut

Ugh I hate this angry spoiled brat, he's just as bad as Jar Jar. Note to Kylo Ren in a stereotypical Brooklyn accent: Sweetie if you wanna imitate your grandfather next time remember to take off your mask in the last movie not the first one. Also why are Maz Katana and Supreme Leader Snoke not on here?

He is a wannabe, washed up, sorry-sack, pitiful, patricidal pathetic clone of Vader. Kylo Ren is worse than Jar Jar.
