The Mandalorian proved to be flagship series of plucky streaming service Disney Plus. Not only did it launch a thousand Baby Yoda memes, but it delivered high quality Star Wars action and adventure that rivaled the big screen adventures. This was a season filled with some of the most BAMF fighters in the galaxy, but only one can hold the crown of MVP.  Who was the one character you would most want in your squad? 

1
Din Djarin is listed (or ranked) 1 on the list Who Was The MVP Of Season One Of 'The Mandalorian'?
Din Djarin

The Mandalorian himself. He's armed with a flame-thrower, missles, a grabbling hook, and by the end a jetpack. Single-handedly takes down a Tie-Fighter. And all to protect his "clan of two." Sure, "The Child" is cute, but he'd be nowhere without Mando. 

2
The Child (Baby Yoda) is listed (or ranked) 2 on the list Who Was The MVP Of Season One Of 'The Mandalorian'?

Undeniably the show's breakout star. He gets sleepy after a fight, but he's a slayer of frogs, can hold Mudhorns in midhair, and repel a fireball with a flick of his magic hand thing. Also a healer, so that helps out in a pinch.

3
IG-11 is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list Who Was The MVP Of Season One Of 'The Mandalorian'?
IG-11

A former assassin, this droid is reprogrammed to be a protector of The Child. Can single-handedly take out waves of Stormtroopers while carrying Baby Yoda in a Baby Bjorn. In the final episode, he makes the ultimate sacrifice so Mando and company can survive. 

4
Cara Dune is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list Who Was The MVP Of Season One Of 'The Mandalorian'?
Cara Dune

As someone from Alderaan and a fomer Rebel shock trooper, she has no love for the Empire. She saved Mando and the Child numerous times and can wield a heavy cannon like a tank.

5
The Armorer is listed (or ranked) 5 on the list Who Was The MVP Of Season One Of 'The Mandalorian'?
The Armorer

A Mandalorian who doesn't have time to grieve. The ferocious Mandalorian armor and weapons maker can also take out a squad of stormtroopers with her trusty tools. 

6
Kuiil is listed (or ranked) 6 on the list Who Was The MVP Of Season One Of 'The Mandalorian'?
Kuiil

Formerly enslaved by the Empire, this Ugnaught moisture farmer proves to be a valuable ally to Mando and The Child. He also reprograms IG-11 from a killer to a protector. So without Kuill, there is no IG-11 redemption.

7
Mandalorians is listed (or ranked) 7 on the list Who Was The MVP Of Season One Of 'The Mandalorian'?
Mandalorians

It's not a race, it's a creed. A creed with jetpacks and the coolest armor in the galaxy. Saving Mando and the Child from a group of bounty hunters, the Mandalorians prove that there is no better fighting force around.

8
Greef Karga is listed (or ranked) 8 on the list Who Was The MVP Of Season One Of 'The Mandalorian'?
Greef Karga

Ex-magistrate and current leader of the bounty hunter guild. His shifting alliances make him unreliable but in the end, he does the right thing. You have to appreciate that he's not afraid to take a swig of alcohol during a tense standoff.

9
Omera is listed (or ranked) 9 on the list Who Was The MVP Of Season One Of 'The Mandalorian'?
Omera

A seemingly quiet farmer who provided sanctuary for Mando and the Child, she proves herself to be a skilled marksman. People on the internet too much were very upset that someone in the Star Wars universe could be naturally talented at something.

10
Moff Gideon is listed (or ranked) 10 on the list Who Was The MVP Of Season One Of 'The Mandalorian'?
Moff Gideon

Although he doesn't show up until the last two episodes, Moff Gideon has been set up as Din's arch-enemy. Ruthless and cold-blooded, this former officer in the Imperial secret police, also possesses the Darksaber, one of the most sought after weapons in the galaxy.

11
Peli Motto is listed (or ranked) 11 on the list Who Was The MVP Of Season One Of 'The Mandalorian'?
Peli Motto

Cantankerous but loving, this mechanic is one of the few people Mando can trust in the galaxy. Not much of a fighter, but sometimes being a MVP means being a babysitter. Plus her hair is straight out of the House of Ellen Ripley.

12
Fennec Shand is listed (or ranked) 12 on the list Who Was The MVP Of Season One Of 'The Mandalorian'?
Fennec Shand

A deadly sniper, this Bounty Hunter crosses paths with Mando and shows that you don't need a suit of armor to be a threat. She's crafty and smarter than most people she encounters. Her fate at the end of season one is uncertain, so we're bound to see more of her. 

13
The Mudhorn is listed (or ranked) 13 on the list Who Was The MVP Of Season One Of 'The Mandalorian'?
The Mudhorn

They're big, they're mean, they've got an egg the Jawas want. In the pivotal second episode, Mando is almost defeated by the Mudhorn, until Baby Yoda uses the force and freezes it in midair. The Mudhorn fight is the first time we see this clan of two in action together. They're triumph over the Mudhorn is so pivotal that it becomes their family crest.

Burg is all Devaronian muscle. Looks like a devil and acts like one too. He's part of a squad that Mando joins to rescue a prisoner of the New Republic. Could be the physically strongest person on the show.

Qin
