Who's Your Least Favourite Star Wars Character

Post by Rogue Rey on Sat 7 May - 17:21

I know we love to talk favourites but what about those that we just don't like?

You know the ones - they get under your skin.  They make you roll your eyes everytime they appear on screen.  They make your blood boil with annoyance.

I've only ever seen the films so the poll isn't going to feature anyone outside of them but feel free to share the name of any character in the EU you don't like.

If you select other let us all know in the comments cheers Claps Approves Pop corn

Just when I think that Star Wars is one of the few movies where I don't have a character that I vehemently despise, this guy comes barging into my mind...

Jar Jar.

He makes me want to scratch my eyes out.

3PO is annoying, but I find his annoyingness endearing.

Jar Jar - no one comes even near.

With two remarks (maybe runner-ups)
C3P0 - was all right in New Hope and ESP (and I love him very much in those two - but the rest of the series - he is annoying over the top)
Boba Fett - it is not about being unlikable (he is totally irrelevant to be likable or inlikable) but he irritates me because of all that overrated sith going around him. Not his fault, poor Boba. Very Happy

Apart from Jar jar, Hux is probably another character I hate (even though he's meant to be unlikable). Dude's just so slimy! Props to Domnhall Gleeson though.

Jar Jar is just plain annoying, even though for real, the story still works without him, so I'm not complaining too much about him.

Jabba, on the other hand... argh. I was so happy when Leia strangled him.

I'll have to mention Unkar Plutt as well. The way he treated Rey (and coveted her in the novelization) is just gross. And (dis)honorable mention to Hux. I love Domhnall Gleeson, but Hux is too much of a Hitler wannabe for me to like him. Not to mention the big speech scene was pretty laughable - but not bad, probably because the whole "laughable" aspect was intentional.

Hux is totally a Space Hitler.

I forgot about him but couldn't change the poll to include him.

My husband would like to add a write-in vote for "Ewoks" collectively.

Note that as someone who nearly named a dog "Wicket" as an 8-year-old, I disagree with this. Not that I can't understand why some people dislike them, but to me, they're a ways down the list of GL's sins.

@Irina de France

As a long time Boba Fett fan, I can answer this. For me, it's his mysteriousness. This character has very little screen time, but you know *just* enough about him to make your imagination run wild. He's THE best bounty hunter in the galaxy, and nobody bests him at what he does. He's a man of few words yet if you cross him I'm sure you will be full of regret before you even realized you've done wrong. He's efficient to the point where it scares me.

i kind of hated they gave him a backstory in AotC as I would have rather left it to my imagination. What they did with him wasn't horrible, but it wasn't nearly as awesome as I would have imagined either. I would have rather have seen him come from a complete nobody than be the unaltered clone of Jango Fett. The fact that all the stormtroopers look like him is just...feh.

I know it's a weird, but I hope they show/mention Plutt is killed in the future movies. Forgot about Hux too, he needs to be exterminated as well, which I'm sure he will be!

In the novelization, Plutt chased down Rey in Maz's cantina, and Chewie ripped his arm out of his socket.

I wouldn't be surprised if we get something like that, or some other sort of comical/satisifying death for him in VIII or IX.

Yes I've read that bit, we very well could be getting something like this. I don't remember where I read it, but some people were wishing Kylo would kill him.

How can anyone not like him in ESB? Laughing
Thus far, our heroes were constantly and successfully escaping from the evil Empire. Han was the cocky escape artist until Boba showed up.

It was all fun and games, they never got caught or had a seriously bad situation happen to them.  Han was our flippant hero who knew how to do things.  The audience cheered for the heroes.  But only one bounty hunter was one step ahead of the others and knew Han Solo's way of thinking.  He was smart and did not engage Han, he just followed them to Cloud City and reported it to Vader.  This eventually led to the biggest "Oh SITH" situation in ESB other than the Luke/Vader moment, when the door opened and Vader was there at the table.   

He had enough clout and respect with Vader to negotiate a good bargain and ensured he got his end of the reward.  He was like a door to a whole new set of characters and stories in the SW universe  - the underworld of bounty hunters and gangsters and mercenaries outside of the whole Force story and the empire.  They worked for themselves.  There is a reason why that whole side of SW is popular - there was going to be a game that dealt with the underbelly of Coruscant and Boba was the character with a mysterious past, the foil of Han Solo (I still think Han and Boba were head to head when they were younger) and seemed respected by someone like Vader.
What's not to like?  (Other than GL ruining his character because of his popularity in ROTJ Evil or Very Mad ).

Plus, his armor is bad*** as hell.  It looks like a cross between a military soldier with an ancient greek warrior helmet and the Predator/Batman, who uses technology and cool tools/deadly weapons on his person.

Least liked characters that never should have happened in this world (You asked for it - warning: PT bashing incoming) :

1. Jar Jar, Gungans, and Boss Nass (100% Mistake, they make my blood boil thinking of them Laughing )
2. Nute Gunray, the Federation, and the stupid Pod Racing aliens (100% Mistake.)
3. Little Ani in TPM ("Weee! I'm a little slave with a stupid ineffective slave master that I could swat and I can fly ships using sheer luck and what's this button do **blows up the enemy**. This is wizard!" )
4. Anakin in AOTC (100% Lame.)
5. Padme in AOTC ("I truly deeply love you". C'mon.)
6. Padme in ROTS (Like one critic said, all she did was stand around pregnant, crying, and running after whiny Anakin.   I always bust out laughing when she turns around in their bedroom, combing her hair.  "Ani, you're breaking my heart!" GL, show, not tell.  RIP Padme, dying of a broken heart. Lame.)
7. C3P0 in AOTC (How bad was that scene in the droid factory? Ruined a beloved character.)
8. Cloned Boba Fett and Jango (Way to ruin another cool character, thanks GL)
9. Mace Windu (Way to act like a flippant Jedi Master, SJ.)
10. Ewoks (Marketing strikes back!  They're not as bad as the PT but they were the weakest point in the OT).
11. CGI changes in the OT - The abomination that was Greedo shooting first!  The Singer in Jabba's court!  Adding an awkward conversation with Jabba; Han saying Jabba was a lovely "human being", adding unnecessary aliens into a scene.
12. Hux (Tired Nazi speech, always roll my eyes at it. He seems like a slimy coworker who always wants to be a know-it-all Laughing Other than that, I like the tension he brings with his interactions with Kylo.)

YES! This is why my favorite sight gag for the past 15+ years has been when someone puts a ring around something when it blows up.

My daughter's Little Golden Book version of "A New Hope" includes the edited-out Jabba scene, and I cringe every time that I read it.
