The Best (And Worst) 'Star Wars' Characters Ever

Over 40.1K Ranker voters have come together to rank this list of The Best (And Worst) 'Star Wars' Characters Ever
Voting Rules

Only characters from the 'Star Wars' Universe (TV, movies, books, video games).

From Darth Vader to Jar Jar Binks, the best Star Wars characters include Jedi, Siths, humans, Wookiees, drones, aliens, and everything in between. This ranked list features the people and creatures who make up the complete Star Wars universe, ranked by Star Wars fans everywhere. Original Star Wars characters from the first movie, Episode IV - New Hope, like Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia, are high up on the Star Wars character rankings, but fan favorites from later Star Wars media, like the main character from The Mandalorian and the "Sequel Trilogy" villain Kylo Ren, are bound to break the top 10. Appearing across Star Wars movies, shows, books, and video games, the most popular Star Wars characters also include Obi-Wan Kenobi, Revan, Rey, and Grogu (Baby Yoda).

Who are the coolest (and hottest?) Star Wars characters? Han Solo is definitely up there, with Lando Calrissian and Ahsoka Tano. Other famous female and male characters from the Star Wars franchise include Darth Maul, Padmé Amidala, and Chewbecca. 

Vote up the greatest Star Wars characters of all time, and may the Force be with you. But if you feel the "hate flowing through you," vote down the worst ones, and check out who ends up being the most hated Star Wars characters ever. If you just need a reference list to see every character and all their name, this should also come in handy.
