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.

I hate him he's ugly

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

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

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

I'm glad that she’s this high on the list. She represents everything wrong with the sequels: they add all these “strong” female characters to diversify the franchise but they forget how to write them well. All the males are dumb and need guidance from females but they ruin the females by giving them dumb logic and no character or weakness. Enter Rose, who fills this stereotype quite well. She had no contribution to the plot except to spout pointless political dialogue ans messages that people don’t want to here in a Star Wars movie. Her logic is flawed anyways as she ends up generalizing everyone on a planet as terrible in the most amateur of ways. She completely ruins Finn’s arc by preventing his death and now there's really no development left for him. Her whole idea of “saving what we love” is stupid coming from someone who literally said in the same movie that she basically wants to hurt everyone in a town. I feel bad for the actress since she really only appears in ...more

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.

4 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

I think the problem was that sand got everywhere - hugh201

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.

I'm sorry, we DON'T need robot rights!

Whoops spoilers sorry - TheInsomniac

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.

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?

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.

He’s not a bad character but he’s hands down the most overrated SW character ever - children

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.

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

9 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

Worst character. no flaws

10 General Grievous General Grievous

He is awesome.

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

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.

The Contenders

11 Maz Kanata Maz Kanata

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

He’s such a whiny bitch (sorry for the language). - asantalo

13 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.


16 Jango Fett Jango Fett

He is my favorite bounty hunter

17 The Bendu
18 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.

Shes the pink haired feminist in the last jedi - Dvafan2

Admiral Holdo, more like Admiral Gender Studies! HA!

Seriously, she is just the writer's shameful attempt at self inserting their SJW ideology.

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

Ugly and boring.

Rey is waay better.

20 Sifo-Dyas
21 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.

22 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

23 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

Worst character in TCW and Rebels

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

25 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.
26 Wicket

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 Sebulba

My dads least favorite character,but I like him.

30 Battle Droids
31 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

32 Snoke Snoke

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 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.

34 Admiral Krell
35 Lobot
36 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!

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.

37 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.

He is cool.

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

44 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
