Top Ten Worst Star Wars Characters


The Top Ten

1 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

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.

Everyone think of this, George Lucas wanted him as the sith lord. How would Star Wars be rated then, hm?

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

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

By far worse than Jar Jar

3 Anakin Skywalker Anakin Skywalker

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

Am I the only one to think that anakin isn’t that bad at all? When he became older he became more mature and better. So I don’t think he belongs in the top five. And that’s my opinion. Fight me nerds.

4 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.

5 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.

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

Original Jar Jar?

6 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

If I were to redo this list, it would be like this:
1. Ziro
2. Sy
3. Tarkin - RalphBob

7 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.

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.

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 is so perfect that she is a mary sue

Sucky fem-nazi, who’s a watered, watered down version of Luke.

8 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

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

He is worst character.


10 Admiral Tarkin

He is the most respect imperial admiral.

Grand Moff Tarkin is one of the greatest characters in cinematic history. - pancake2015

Peter Cushing was a legendary actor who brought this great, calculating military genius to life. - pancake2015

The Contenders

11 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.

12 Greedo Greedo

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

13 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

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

I never liked The Clone wars in general, to be honest. - N4XUS

I hate Ashoka she is sooo annoying

14 Darth Maul 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 more.

WAY too overrated. Not very powerful in the force, creepy, and if you haven't watched the Clone Wars it would seem as though he died within one of the worst movies with little screen time. The only redeemable quality is his lightsaber which is unique to him. Oh and in the Clone Wars he came back as a cyborg, hmm... I remember too way cooler villains with that gimmick *cough Vader, cough cough Grievous. I know I'm gonna get a lot of hate for this decision, but he just seems like a carbon copy of Darth Vader with way less screen time.

He was badass when he was given no character. He was even more badass when he WAS given character. Darth Maul does NOT deserve to be on this list. - Daviddv0601

I thought the characters from the prequels would be all hated. Not "he's awesome".

He's just a cookie-cutter character with no feelings, personality, or conflict. All he does is just wave a stupid double-bladed lightsaber and everybody's like, 'ooh he's so cool'.
wait did I call him a character? Oops, sorry, somebody who doesn't do anything but fight doesn't qualify as a character, my mistake

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

Rey is waay better.

16 Wicket
17 Coleman Trebor

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

18 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.

19 Battle Droids
20 Sebulba

My dads least favorite character,but I like him.

21 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

Pardon the language.
He's a snivelling bitch. Well, that's my opinion.

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

26 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.

27 Princess Leia Princess Leia Princess Leia Organa, later known as General Leia Organa, is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed in films by Carrie Fisher.

Is it really because you found her too hotheaded?

Kid of whiny in the first installment.

28 Oppo Rancisis Oppo Rancisis
29 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.

Boba Fett is not a bad character in my opinion of becoming as one of the greatest bounty hunters of all time since in the original trilogy that he was great.
Of course he is a great character, but young Boba Fett is really awful I gotta say in the pre-sequels of the Star Wars Trilogy.
First of all, I can't even imagine how bad young Boba Fett was acted and added to the pre-sequels. This even seems that he shouldn't really be acted like this when he was a young boy. He seems to act like a baby young boy complaining the whole time. Even when he is very distraught when Jango was killed by Mace Windu.
My overall opinion is that this is a very pointless appernce to be added in the pre-sequels. - BurnAux

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.

He is cool.

31 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.

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

Old trilogy Luke=my all time favorite Star Wars character.

“The Last Jedi” Luke=WHAT… THE… HELL… HAPPENED?

So this Luke refers to the one from episode 8. Such a wasted character.

1. Luke’s characteristics (to betray his friends) are so wrong. Did Rian Johnson even watch the Original Trilogy or just episode 7?

2. If Luke created a map for the Resistance to search for him and then gave it to R2-D2 in episode 7, why would he not want to be found?

3. I’m wondering, does Rian Johnson hate Luke because he died in the end for… it wasn’t explained. Using too much Force Power?

4. Luke vs Ren is the worst lightsaber fight I’ve seen in a SW film.

32 Qui-Gon Jinn Qui-Gon Jinn Qui-Gon Jinn is a fictional character in the Star Wars saga, portrayed by Liam Neeson and is one of the main protagonists in the 1999 film Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.

No, Qui-Gon is badass! - N4XUS

33 Lumpawaroo
34 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

Boring. - N4XUS

37 Han Solo Han Solo Han Solo is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed in films by Harrison Ford. In the original film trilogy, Han and his co-pilot, Chewbacca, become involved in the Rebel Alliance which opposes the Galactic Empire.

Why the hell is he in this list - Charmedyeti

I'm laughing so hard that I see him on this list

Next to 3po, my favorite star wars character! Why is he on this list!?!

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

ps: I bet Harrison Ford would hate Solo: A Star Wars Story

38 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

39 R2-D2 R2-D2 R2-D2 or Artoo-Detoo is a fictional robot character in the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas, who appears in the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, and the sequel trilogy.

The Best Star Wars Character

40 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.

Ewoks are the Minions of 80s

41 General Grievous General Grievous

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

He is awesome.

Pointless character

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.

42 Captain Phasma Captain Phasma Captain Phasma is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by Gwendoline Christie. Introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the first film in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, Phasma is the commander of the First Order's force of stormtroopers.

Bland in VII, better in VIII - Charmedyeti

What a disappointment.

She is the first female star wars villian.

43 Jacen Solo
44 Mace Windu Mace Windu Mace Windu is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, portrayed by actor Samuel L. Jackson in the prequel films.

Part of the reason Anakin went to the dark side.

Windu is great.

He's the reason for the Clone Wars!

I like his character, but I don’t understand how he didn’t grant Anakin the rank of master even if it was clear he was the chosen one and how he killed Dooku

So who's going to talk first? You talk first? I talk first? - Charmedyeti
