Most Underrated Star Wars Characters

The Top Ten

1 Emperor Palpatine Emperor Palpatine

The best villain. He is the perfect villain, a tyrant, sadistic, manipulative, ruthless and a evil genius. He is the Star Wars version of Satan. He manipulated the galaxy.
Darth Vader is a weak fool overrated. Sidious stomps!

He rule the galaxy as Emperor and never gets credit for being the greatest Sith to ever live! - pancake2015

More interesting and powerful than Darth-boring-Vader!

Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise?

I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It's ironic...he could save others from death, but not himself. - errrr

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.

14 Captain Panaka
15 Zeb Orrelios

He hasn't had enough character development since Season 1 and even then he is still pushed back. I hope he gets more development in Season 4.

He needs to have more episodes just about him as he hasn't had enough compared to the others.

Needs to be given more character than just the muscle.
