Top Ten Worst Star Wars Characters


The Top Ten

1 Rose Tico

Congratulations jar jar, you are no longer the worst star wars character. - Pinecone1

Character had literally nothing to do with the plot, take her out and nothing changes. All she did was free a horse thing and save finn which made me really angry, but that's a long story

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

Useless just useless

2 Jar Jar Binks 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.

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 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... - Kalo

I wouldn't call him forgettable. Everyone remembers him because of how BAD he was, including me. - Vancedapurpleguy

He Newrly turned the franchise into something only kids aged 5 to 10 could possibly enjoy

3 Boss Nass

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

All he does is spit everywhere.

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

He is a frog? - B1ueNew

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.

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

Made me want to leave and go see deadpool 2, thank god she dies

No just no...

5 Anakin Skywalker 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!

Same. Though Anakin in his teens before he became Vader was also annoying too. All he ever did was complain. But Darth Vader is the best Star Wars character in the universe. - Anonymousxcxc

Worst character in history

6 Jabba the Hutt 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.

The original version of A New Hope didn't include him, but of course, George Lucas HAD to add it in. - Vancedapurpleguy

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! - steelers1979

He's a big fat bag of pudding

Ugly, but in my opinion, he’s still a major character that’s needed. If he never existed, Episodes 1, 5, and 6 would be much different

7 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.

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. - Rpemk

Young Boba Feet is worst.

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)

8 Ziro the Hutt

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

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

His name is stupid.

9 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 awesome.

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

Grievous? , sure he wasn't that great in episode 3 but still - B1ueNew

He’s cool. - Camaro6

10 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 more.

The first feminist. I don't want the main character to be a female. Sorry. Finn should've been a Jedi, not Rey. Rey is already too perfect. She can build things, fix things, fight, fly, aim a gun well and use the force immediately. - Daviddv0601

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.

She is so perfect that she is a mary sue

I don't even mind if Rey is a "Mary Sue" on TFA. It is still a great film in my opinion. - Kevinsidis

The Contenders

11 Maz Kanata 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. - N4XUS

She is cool

12 Kylo Ren 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.

He killed his father

And? , Palpatine killed millions of Jedi, Luke killed a pet of someone in a rancor pit, And don't get me started on Anakin/Darth Vader - B1ueNew

No please take him off he is the best!

13 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. - truckturner

She is such a disgrace, to Leia, Ackbar, Poe, Rose, etc. She is a traitor for using the escape pods that were unarmed!

15 Watto

He is worst character.


16 Padme Amidala 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!

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

Cringe worthy Love interest. - Darth-Snorpy

Mary Sue! Hate the romance with Anakin. - Camaro6

He is my favorite bounty hunter

18 The Bendu
19 Finn Finn

He sucks he manages to use a lightsaber so well even though it's his first time using it. Nonsense!

Ugly and boring.

He just out right sucks.. and the over excited / over acting is horrible he's the worst can't shoot can't fly and how easily he becomes obsessed with Rey is creepy

Very bland character. I feel like the writers don’t even know what to do with him most of the time.

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.

22 Ahsoka Tano 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.

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

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

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

There’s a reason her nickname is Snips. - Camaro6

Han Shot First!

He may be pointless, but he's design is so epic, he dosen't deserve to be here! - darthvadern

I don't know why but for a lizard frog fly thing...he's kind of cute...Wicket is just pointless.

He sucks

24 BB-8 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.
25 C3PO C3PO

Just a little annoying

C3-P0 is overrated, and doesn't deserve to be 40, how about 2 (1 being Jar-Jar) - Charmedyeti

C3PO human cyborg relations. need I say more

26 Wicket
27 Coleman Trebor

High ranking jedi master.. gets dispatched by Jango Fett after not even 5 seconds. - N4XUS

28 Ponda Baba

This was the bastard that got his arm cut off by Obi-Wan in Episode IV for trying to kill Luke. What an ass.

Better than Cornelius Evanas.

29 Nute Gunray 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.

30 Battle Droids
31 Sebulba

My dads least favorite character,but I like him.

32 Snoke Snoke

Where does he originate again? (watches Last Jedi) - htoutlaws2012

Snoke is a useless plot device, only to be used to accelerate Kylo Ren's training - Charmedyeti


If you see The Last Jedi, you’ll know why.

33 Admiral Krell
34 Lobot
35 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. He was portrayed by Christopher Lee and more.

Excuse me, Dooku, but your lightsaber is looking a little purple there. - JakePlaid

Why is Dooku on this list?! Dooku's amazing.Take him off.

He is boring


Actually, he was portrayed as an equal to Mace Windu in lightsaber fighting, and could be easily beaten by someone like Palpatine - Charmedyeti

36 Ewoks 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.

Ugly little nasty creatures that ruined Return of the Jedi.

Ewoks are the Minions of 80s

37 Amilyn Holdo

Terrible leader, and an even worse commander. She was so bad that I honestly thought she was a First Order saboteur. She refused 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.

A completely idiotic leader who exists only for the purpose of pushing a feminist agenda. Doesn't listen to Poe and doesn't tell him the plan, and only decides to sacrifice herself after something like 80% of the resistance transports are destroyed.

She’s a pointless character, made for all the feminists out there

Terrible leader portrayed in a good light. I'm glad she blew herself up.

Pong Krell was also a terrible leader, but at least that was acknowledged and justified in him betraying the Republic.

38 Porg Porg

I think the Porgs are probably the most well thought and developed characters. Their design is outstanding, the development even better. They are instantly a classic character in the entire Star Wars series topping Obi, Anakin, Jango, Boba, Yoda, and many others.

Annoying and rather whiny

Stupid Luke haters. They say Lukes a whiny brat for out at Vader in ROTJ, but what would YOU have done to the man who cut of your hand, killed thousand of millions of innocent people, after they threatened your sister, and literally all your friends

Luke is dumb - riki1234

Haters of Luke are not Star Wars fans at all. He’s a better character than Han Solo. He’s not a farmer (I hate Uncle Owen), he’s the true hero of the Galaxy. - asantalo

What a disappointment.

She is the first female star wars villian.

44 Bib Fortuna
45 Jyn Erso 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.

Jyn Erso is boring think about it what did she do in the movie that could have been easily done by any other character. I hate most of the characters in Rouge one but most of them are more useful then Jyn all she did was pull a switch, give a bad speech, and die.

Jyn Erso could kick your pathetic cargo hold and is one of the best Star Wars characters. Delal with the fact that some female characters are better than your pathetic male action heroes who just shoot at stuff. If you'd been through the bantha fodder she has, you'd have turned out way worse. Only a sexist and heartless fool would have an issue with a woman giving the Death Star plans to the rebellion.

She was a very weak character that needed more depth - Charmedyeti

Yet this feminist is below anakin and boba fett - B1ueNew

Rename this to "Alden Ehrenreich's Han Solo". He's completely out of character.
