Top Ten Worst Star Wars Characters

RalphBob

The Top Ten

1 Rose Tico

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

It's just ridiculous to put Rose at number 1, this list is just new levels of moronic and this website in general is a joke, just a bunch of sensitive idiots upvoting things that have no place in the top 10, and the abuse the actor suffered from idiot fans like this is disgusting. - Metalhead99

Horrible example of adding a character that doesn't belong to the story just to score points for political correctness

She's worthless

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 ...read more.

He should so be #1. I mean guys, think about it.
He has a super aggravating voice.
Very lame jokes.
A creepy appearance.
Etc, etc, etc...

Kill Jar Jar Binks!

He's much more tolerable in "The Clone Wars"

It's a cartoon character invading a movie universe that all of us were taking seriously up to that point.

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.

4 Boss Nass

He is a frog? - B1ueNew

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.

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.

Hayden Christensen's acting is why so many people hate him. Apart from Hayden's awful performance, he's not a terrible character. - SurcaneWolf

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

He was awful in I and II but he was awesome in III - CannabisCat420

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.

He's extremely weird and creepy looking - B1ueNew

Creepy stupid slug guy who gets choked by Leia. - CharismaticKat

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

Original Jar Jar?

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.

Poorly written, an insult to the series, to women, and to everyone who is skilled at something after years and years of practice, dedication and hard work.

Someone who can defeat a villain with years of Jedi training all because she's female - DoroExploro13

A character with no flaws is boring.

Far worse than most characters you have put before her, and overpowered bland protagonist with zero interest

8 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.

What the actual trash monkeys - Person12

Why is he here? Ohhh just realised is because of Attack of the Clones - CannabisCat420

I never liked him in my opinion. You have to admit though, he’s really fun to play as in Lego Star Wars

Boba fett one of the worst? , really? - B1ueNew

9 Ziro the Hutt

His name is stupid.

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

10 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.

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

awesome

He is awesome.

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

The Contenders

11 Vice Admiral Holdo

Should be in the top 3 worst.

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.

Disney missed a chance to male a badass general. Plus they kind of never used her. She had one dumb scene and that was it.

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.

12 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

13 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 ...read more.

Chewie should've killed him in Force Awakens - TheDarkOne_221b

He is a wanna be vader.

No please take him off he is the best!

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.

14 Mon Mothma 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

15 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.

Boring character. Wasted actress.

Mary Sue! Hate the romance with Anakin. - Camaro6

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.

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

Ugly and boring.

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

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.

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

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

Worst character in TCW and Rebels

There is nothing wrong with this character. I bet you couldn't even name one good reason why she would be a bad character. - RogerMcBaloney

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

Nobody shot first. Han was the only person to fire his gun in the original movie. - SurcaneWolf

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.

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

Totally lame. seriously, he is a teddy bear!

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 Battle Droids
30 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.

31 Snoke Snoke

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

Useless

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.

32 Sebulba

My dads least favorite character,but I like him.

33 Admiral Krell
34 Lobot
35 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.

STOP IT WITH THE SCREAMING PENGUINS!

36 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 ...read more.

He is boring

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.

BEST LIGHSASABER FIGHTER EVER AND ONE OF THE BEST VILLIAN.

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

37 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.

They're design is at least cute. - SurcaneWolf

Ugly little nasty creatures that ruined Return of the Jedi.

Ewoks are the Minions of 80s

38 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.

40 Luke Skywalker 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.

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

Annoying and rather whiny

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

She is the first female star wars villian.

47 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.

Yet this feminist is below anakin and boba fett - B1ueNew

I didn't even like rogue one - B1ueNew

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.
