Top Ten Worst Star Wars Characters

The Top Ten
1 Rose Tico

honestly, worse than Jar Jar Binks. that guy was a 'so bad he's good' type of character. Rose Tico just straight up sucked. she was not only useless, but she was also a really annoying and poorly written character. with that being said, the actress who played her didn't deserve the death threats as it wasn't her fault her character was awful

I don't hate the actress unlike some idiots but the character is annoying and awful. She served no purpose to the story and ruined Finn. So yeah she is terrible but it is when people start hating the actress that they cross the line. It is the writers to blame not the actress fault. Have you forgotten about the endless hate that Ahmed Best and Jake Lloyd got that affected their lives. The actors just do what the writers say so it is noway the actors fault. I don't like the sequel trilogy but I must say the Star Wars fans are quite toxic. Hate the character, not the actor.

Rose Tico, to put it bluntly, is more aggravating than Jar Jar Binks. The reasons:

1) Jar Jar can be funny sometimes (the key word is 'sometimes'), but Rose is just annoying at all times.
2) Rose totally disrupts the plot of the movie she premiered in with her pointless B-plot; Jar Jar's annoying antics do pop up throughout the film he was featured so prominently in, but he doesn't distract the viewer from what's supposed to be the main focus.
3) As troublesome as he is, at least Jar Jar got Obi-wan Kenobi and Qui-gon Gin to safety when they landed on Naboo and got his people (the Gungans) to help out in the fight against the Trade Federation; Rose wasted time trying to free animals while neglecting child slavery, picked out a 'code breaker' who was clearly untrustworthy and predictably stabbed her and Finn in the back which enabled the First Order to catch on the plan of the Resistance and start plucking them off, and to top it all off, she stopped Finn from sacrificing ...more

An absolutely pointless character that adds nothing to the plot. The casino scene is completely pointless by itself, and the scene where she saved Finn was also stupid. Her whole quote of "We're gonna win. Not by fighting what we hate. By saving what we love" is just plain stupid, considering Finn was about to save the resistance. She's just annoying, and I really hope she gets denoted to extremely minor character in episode 9

2 Jar Jar Binks Jar Jar Binks is a fictional character from the Star Wars saga created by George Lucas. 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 more.

This is the most forgettable character in the history of cinema. It is a clumsy useless long-eared abomination that does nothing but only annoys both the other personalities and the poor viewers. Its appearance brings total disgust that later transforms into pure hate and leaves every Star Wars fan with the feeling that something has gone brutally wrong when writing the script. But after all, you will forget him when you finish reading this...

Yeah he is one of the worst characters. Not only is he incredibly annoying but he doesn't help at all. It also doesn't help that he was the one that allowed the empire to take over the galaxy. No really, just watch episode 2 again, you'll see what I mean. But he is more tolerable as long a you don't pay much attention. He is at least more tolerable than Daniel Logan as Boba Fett.

This is the most forgettable character in the history of cinema. It is a clumsy useless long-eared abomination that does nothing but annoy both the other personalities and the poor viewers. Its appearance brings total disgust that later transforms into pure hate and leaves every Star Wars fan totally disappointed. A mistake.

In A New Hope,you had this very organic flow of humor coming naturally from all the characters,more or less.
And here are all a bunch of emotionless kids.
And the person that's supposed to be funny is the least funny thing in the history of least funny things.

3 Boss Nass

"Maybe weesa being friends." Insert him spitting everywhere here. He irks me and he's awful. Boss Nass was completely unnecessary and looks terrible.

Bass Nass at 2 that's ridioculous! He should be like number 7 or 8! He's not even in the movie! This spot should be given to hayden's anakin, Padme, snoke, or Rose.

Boss Nass was completely unnecessary. His constant spitting everywhere drives me insane.

Worse than Jar Jar, but on screen for less time, so I don't know just chose this one.

4 L3-37

She is awful, who thought that a character that a character who was obnoxiously loud, rude to every character it met,and spewed needless cries of droid rights! (they're made in a factory, they aren't people) My favorite scene was when she 'died' (robots can be repaired), and Pan-sexual Lando was crying that his favourite play toy was wrecked. And the worst thing is they made it so that she is now apart of the Millenium Falcon, and as a result made it so she is technically in the Original Trilogy, the WORST STAR WARS CHARACTER (followed by Admiral Holdo, Rose Tico, Jar Jar Binks, Little Ani, Boss Nass, Hayden Christensen Anakin, Qi'ra, and Queen Mary-Sue Rey

Why the hell is this character louder than everything else in the movie! Many of L3 scenes just seemed out of place and took you out of the movie. I guess that is what happens when you change directors midway through production.

This is the worst and biggest abomination of a rat character I've seen.Looks like a big piece of @##$ who designed this rubbish,Sounds awful?
This is the worst droid to ever exist in existance.
I really hate this trash and will happily take Jar Jar Binks over trashcan any day. Please decanonize and delete this trash. Glad I'ts dead rest in piss trashcan

Why did we need this character all it (yes it not she) did was be loud, annoying and wreck lando's character.

5 Anakin Skywalker Anakin Skywalker is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. He appears in the original trilogy as a main and pivotal antagonist serving the Galactic Empire, while his past as Anakin Skywalker and the story of his corruption are the focus of the prequel trilogy.

I like darth vader, I hate anakin, he's a whiny obnoxious brat with op force powers because Lucas' plot demands it, he's a moron who got tricked by a blatantly obvious evil character and retroactively made Vader less intimidating, the acting sucks for both versions of his character and he is written wrong, Lucas clearly forgot Ben kenobi's line "a good man and a good friend" considering he is constantly at odds with obi wan and is constantly angry and close to the dark side and murders children, CHILDREN just so he can be with padme, a character who is also terrible and whose romance is completely plastic and unbelievable

Anakin Skywalker himself isn't a bad character. The acting by Hayden is what brings him up this high on the list. Jake Lloyd's performance wasn't nearly as bad as Christensen's. However, Anakin still remains my favorite character

I voted for this because of young anakin he was so badly cast and the most annoying character ever! Old anakin is cool and darth vader my favourite ever but young anakin I can't stand!

Hayden Christensen is a terrible Anakin. The Anakin described by Obi-Wan Kanobi in the original trilogy is nothing pike the crap we got in the prequels. It seems that he was on the dark side from the start.

6 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 more.

A massive Mary Sue of a character because dumbass Disney has yet to understand what a good strong female character actually is supposed to be and it’s simply aggravating that this kind of crap is being pushed into one of the most popular franchises of all time. JJ Abrams is also a moron for instigating how her story was going to play out.

Without training Rey is able to defeat a Sith who trained under Jedi Luke Skywalker. Rey also has telepathic powers without having to train at all, in The Force Awakens, while (Obi Wan) has to train for a long time to be able to do what Rey did without any training. The poor writing from Disney has ruined Star Wars, with the movies becoming more of SJW movies than Star Wars movies. The Force Awakens is A New Hope in better quality and different characters, Rouge One is pointless, and The Last Jedi is a feminist movie that has females (pink haired woman, Rey, Rose, and Leia) all heroes, while the male characters are depicted as crazy and need the women (Finn, Poe, Luke). Disney will also likely be making Star Wars movies until they can’t make much money off of them, so what people need to do is boycott their ludicrous system, but that’s likely not to happen as liberals will force their agenda to kids and their millennial parents will indulge in the poor behavior.

She's a good character but is far too much a cookie-cutter copy paste Star Wars character/hero to be actually interesting. Plus, somehow she magically pulled force powers out of her ass for no reason or training, like with Luke. She was too rushed. The next movie better make up for it.

Hatred! Honestly, lightsabers take time and training, not being stranded on a desert planet with an old AT-AT as a house... Plus she could stood toe-to-toe with Kylo (which isn't hard) who, to our knowledge, is trained by Snoke. Also her Mind Trick works on a trooper who has been brainwashed repeatedly and was trained from birth.

7 Vice Admiral Holdo

Terrible leader, and an even worse commander. She was so bad that, at first, I honestly thought she was a First Order saboteur. She won't tell anyone her plan, and when the First Order starts picking off their ships, she does NOTHING! The Resistance fleet was decimated because of her incompetence, and by the time she sacrificed herself, it was far too late. Worst of all, she's hailed as a HERO, even though Poe did something similar and got demoted because of it. Oh, and she's apparently Force-sensitive, because feminism. Truly awful character.

Easily the worst and most unnecessary character ever in Star Wars, she stole what would have been a perfect way to send out Admiral Ackbar in a heroic way giving up his life to save the fleet and one more chance for the line' it's a trap' terrible script writing huge opportunity missed instead of being a pointless character and leaving fans disappointed this could have been one of the greatest Star Wars moments EVER.

Someone seemed to let Laura Dern go a bit too shrill and strident, and her dressing down of Poe stands out like a sore thumb once you get to the reveal. Poorly conceived and realised, in an otherwise terrific movie.

The character embodiment of Kathleen Kennedy.
Feminist, incompetent, and treated people who didn't automatically agree with
her superiority as the enemy.

8 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.

Creepiest Star Wars character I have ever seen. I have no idea why anyone even likes him, and he's the reason why episode 5 is my favorite, because it's the only one that I can watch without being creeped out by some slug like alien.

He is stupid and pointless he is just a fat blob! He makes no sense! He is just a fat blob of I don't know what!

He's extremely weird and creepy looking

This guy still gives me nightmares!

9 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.

A pointless character that only exists to sell action figures and give Obi-Wan something to do in Revenge of the Sith while Anakin is being played like a fiddle by Palpatine. What could have been an intimidating and interesting character just comes off as a cheesy, mustache-twirling, Saturday morning cartoon villain.

Grievious is an annoying coward.. All he does is act tough and always says "I will deal with this myself" but when he is defeated by literally anyone he just tells his droids to finish them and runs off and if his droids are not there he just becomes an annoying spider coward and just spiders off, which can be seen well in the clone wars series. Grievious is areogant for no apparent reason, his breathing is annoying and he has no depth, his just the typical bad guy.. Looks scary, is arrogant but cowardly escapes in the end.

Come on people! General Grievous was a great villain. People don't like him because he is evil, but your not supposed to like him. But he is a fantastic villain and was a huge threat the the Republic during the Clone Wars.

They should have just kept Maul for that scene. He was actually cool!

10 Ziro the Hutt

I hate him. Jar jar is a Nice creature but this this may not be in star wars. He is worser than the person I hate the most

I'm going to say this now, but Jabba the Hutt is much creepier.

His name is stupid.

The Contenders
11 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.

In the battle front games (heores vs villans) he wasn't that good he more was a target so your own guys could kill the guy rushing at you and why not damage some guys for the team it is not all about the kills (actually it is but still)

If you're thinking Boba's a awful character you're thinking of young Boba

He was useless in the Battlefront games, but cool in the movies.

Why is he here? Ohhh just realised is because of Attack of the Clones

12 Sy Snootles

Ugh. She's not a big deal in the theatrical release. The CGI Sy Snootles is ridiculous. She gets right in your face along with Joe Yowza. She's weird.

13 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.

Nah, she's well developed and an interesting addition to the new trilogy.

Like a majority of the characters from the Disney trilogy: useless!

Character has no purpose but to be a exposition dispenser

She is cool

14 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 more.

To be fair, they portrayed him terribly in the movie compared to the novelization, but he's written super poorly that he's not really original at all. He's just what people wanted to happen to Vader for redemption and there's no way he'll be redeemed for killing his father. I feel like he's a terrible and unlikable character and it isn't because he's a villain, but because he's poorly written and just a "representation" of the modern teenager. Maybe if they didn't stereotype the "whiny villain" character into him and actually made some depth to him besides the whole "I'm evil but I can't be evil because I'm weak", I would like him a lot more. Plus, tumblr fantasizes him overly to a point where he becomes unrecognizable.

Kylie Ren = Extremist 'My Chemical Romance' fan (he's just an emo death maul that can talk but I think any force awakens character deserves to be on this list.

Kylo Ren is a joke. Even Jango will kick his ass then you are talking about him facing the Jedis.

Whiny emo and wannabe tough guy.Thinks he's the reincarnation of Darth Vader.LMAO,yeah right.He should go back to listening to My Chemical Romance or Black Veil Brides or Nightcore remixes.

15 Mon Mothma A leader of the Galactic Senate's Loyalist faction, Mon Mothma opposed Supreme Chancellor Palpatine's policies during the final days of the Repulic.

She looks like someone from Ancient Rome or Greece. - SurcaneWolf

That haircut though

16 Watto

He is worst character.


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

Amazing actress shoved into a puny script with a crappy love story and horrible directing... That's the recipe for Padme Amidala!

Padme? Seriously? She sucks... how did Leia be such a great character with a mother like that?

Should not be on this list, beautiful, smart and interesting.

I don't hate her. I prefer her more than Rey. She's just so adorable.

18 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.

Asian Stereotype

He is cool.

19 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.

He is my favorite bounty hunter

20 The Bendu
21 BB-8 BB-8 or Beebee-Ate is a droid character in the Star Wars franchise, first appearing in the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

After Force Awakens played no role in the story, and the directors seemed to forget that BB-8 belongs to Poe.

22 Sifo-Dyas
23 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.

Hate isn't even a strong enough word for this cheap, pandering, wannabe hip character. Hated the movie, too.

I kind of feel bad for voting this character. She is only about eight after all.

Who put Ahsoka on the list she is one of the best characters

I never liked The Clone wars in general, to be honest.

24 Ewoks Ewoks are a fictional race of small, mammaloid bipeds that appear in the Star Wars universe. They are hunter-gatherers resembling teddy bears that inhabit the forest moon of Endor and live in various arboreal huts and other simple dwellings.

They're design is at least cute.

Ugly little nasty creatures that ruined Return of the Jedi.

Ewoks are the Minions of 80s
