Debate of the Day: Who’s Your Favorite Star Wars Character?

Published by at 11:00 am under Debate,Movies

Over on our newly huge Unreality Facebook page (20K fans bitches!), Nattyb asked a question that’s sparked a lot of responses, so I figured I’d port it over to our actual site for a change.

It’s easy to argue that Star Wars is the most influential pop culture franchise in history, despite that it’s creator is determined to beat it to death with commercialism, CGI and poor writing.

But at least for the original three films, a brilliant world was created full of colorful characters. So many, that it’s probably hard to pick a favorite. But it’s time.

What kind of Star Wars fan are you? The tortured soul of Lord Vader? The tireless hero of Luke Skywalker? The rule breaking rogue Han Solo? The complete moron of Jar Jar? Who IS your favorite Star Wars character?

Willrow Hood all the way.

    Boba Fett hands down! I know he doesn’t do anything useful but damn that armour is sexy.

  4. Ben'jamin'on 12 Apr 2011 at 11:39 am

    Obi-Wan Kenobi!

    That little droid in A New Hope that makes the bleep-bloop noise and runs away in the Death Star. Or the senator in Episode 1 or 2 (I forget) that has to tune himself in like an old time radio to speak properly.

    ok oroginal 3, solo
    fave sith – darth maul (pure awesome)

    I have three. Admiral Ackbar, the greatest military mind to ever live, Chewbaca for obvious reasons, and Qui Gon. I have more that never appeared in the films (yes, I am a huge Star Wars nerd. I’ve read just under 100 books at this point), but I kept it to characters people would actually know.

    Han Solo. Not even slightly close. My opinion of Vader dropped sharply after I learned he was a crippled, sickly old white man. It was almost completely ruined after watching the prequels.

  9. cyranooneon 12 Apr 2011 at 12:02 pm

    Grand Admiral Thrawn
    no doubt

  10. TSimpson618on 12 Apr 2011 at 12:04 pm

    Id have to say Jango Fett all the way

  11. johnon 12 Apr 2011 at 12:23 pm

    obi wan!

  12. DarkPassenger29on 12 Apr 2011 at 12:29 pm

    The black guy in TESB carrying the ice cream maker… a player needs his Jabba Nut Crunch.

  13. Jimon 12 Apr 2011 at 12:39 pm

    ACKBAR!!! I say that for many reasons. Partly because he’s the Supreme Commander of the Rebel Alliance Fleet, partly casue he’s the most brilliant military mind ever, and partly cause he’s a cool guy with a fish face.

  14. DarkPassenger29on 12 Apr 2011 at 12:40 pm

    Oops.. looks like Paul beat me to it… long live Willrow Hood. My second pick would be Lobot.

  15. Johnon 12 Apr 2011 at 12:43 pm

    Anyone have a link to the high-rez pic from the article?

  16. Ugo Strangeon 12 Apr 2011 at 2:07 pm

    Boba F*ckin’ Fett. The REAL Boba Fett…not that snot nosed brat from the prequels..He can go suck a cock. Give me Slave One ridin’, Jet-packin’, kiss stealin’, Jaba The Hutt Slave Girl Charmin’ Boba Fett from Empire & Jedi !

  17. Jansonon 12 Apr 2011 at 3:42 pm

    Kal Skirata. Bad ass old man Mando.

  18. EJon 12 Apr 2011 at 4:20 pm

    Tiree (Gold 2). He coulda been somebody, he coulda been a contenda!

    Also, I’ve gone by the internet babe magnet Gold 2 for going on 15 years now.

  19. The Longshoton 12 Apr 2011 at 6:43 pm

    1) If we’re limited to the original Trilogy: Boba Fett
    2) If we’re limited to the original + new Trilogies: Young Obi Wan
    3) If including Errata (rpg, tv, books, etc): Kettch (+100 Interwebz to the nerds who know who that is)

  20. matton 12 Apr 2011 at 7:59 pm

    the single black guy in all of star wars universe

  21. Andyon 12 Apr 2011 at 8:04 pm

    The winner:

    Han Solo. No explanation needed.

    Honorable mention:

    Salacious Crumb: He steals every scene he’s in.

    Plo Koon: I don’t think he did anything except look cool as hell.

    Leia: She had better aim with a blaster than everyone.

  22. Dustinon 12 Apr 2011 at 9:29 pm

    Wedge Antilles for sure. Only pilot to make both Death Star runs. Admiral Ackbar is also great. Later on in the books I like Jaina Solo a lot.

  23. dudeon 12 Apr 2011 at 9:40 pm

    jar jar all de way

  24. nicolauzon 12 Apr 2011 at 10:50 pm

    Hipster Fett, before he was famous of course.

  25. 39Stepson 13 Apr 2011 at 1:00 am

    Emperor Palpatine, definitely. Pettiness, grandeur, and the best evil laugh anywhere.

    Bonus: Because he says “Skywalker” so often in RotJ, it’s really easy to swap in any word with the same cadence. Try saying “c*cksucker” instead in the Emperor voice–it will become your favorite curse, guaranteed.

  26. Matthijson 13 Apr 2011 at 3:01 am

    Kyle Katarn from the Jedi Knight games is probably my favorite non-movie character. A tortured soul, looking for redemption. Also, he knows how to whoop some serious ass.
    When we’re talking movie characters it comes down to a tie between Boba Fett and Darth Vader. Vader in Bespin was just pure awesomeness.

  27. Bradson 13 Apr 2011 at 5:55 am

    The guy who looks after the Rancour. Not afraid to show emotion.

    Porkins – To fat to fly straight.

    Aunt Beru – Blue Milk!

    Gold Leader – Y-Wing pilots show no emotion.

    Ackbar – “Your tastbuds can’t repel flavour of that magnitude!”

  28. Nickon 13 Apr 2011 at 6:45 am

    Corran Horn for sure.

    J’Quille in second for winning me more than one game of SWCCG (I play a Hoth deck so he fucking owns)

    I quite like Bossk as well cos he’s just a bit of a psycho.

    But if we’re going for speaking parts in the films then it has to be Lando (Billy Dee Williams!!)

  29. Nyxariaon 13 Apr 2011 at 6:55 am

    vader hands down ( or cut off xD )

  30. grandma salad stainon 13 Apr 2011 at 6:09 pm

    mastur cheef, bro! oh….

  31. a bureaucraton 13 Apr 2011 at 6:10 pm

    IG-88, also TK421.
