Characters so bad, they’re good. Ones we love to hate! Everybody secretly likes a good villain. Captain Hook, Loki, The Joker, Voldemort, Hans Gruber, Agent Smith, Hannibal Lecter… we love them all.
Of course, the Star Wars Universe has many many favorite villains that are near and dear to our hearts.
I’ve polled 10 of my fellow “uber” #StarWars fans and asked them to rank their top 10 favorite Star Wars Villains from the Movies, Clone Wars and Rebels.
As always, there’s a lot of debate to be had, so head over to the comments, and get in the battle.
We did it – we found a category with a UNANIMOUS #1 – a PERFECT 10.0 score. It should be a surprise…
The Uber Fans returned their findings very quickly for this one. It seems that people really do love talking about the bad ‘guys’.
I put ‘guys’ in quotes because, not all the villains are male! We have females, robots and creatures.
27 different villains were nominated in total. Only our unanimous #1 made it on to every list. Someone had the audacity to not include Boba Fett in their list! He landed on 9 of the 10 submissions. Same with Maul and Tarkin.
Speaking of Tarkin, he got bumped higher in some lists due to his increased visibility in Rogue One while other Uber Fans have stated that Tarkin made it on their list despite being in Rogue One.
What constitutes a ‘villain’ was up for debate within the Uber community. One SW-T10’er wanted to just list their favorite styles of Stormtroopers (they didn’t).
The love was spread all around in the original introductions.
12 of the 27 names originated in the Original Trilogy (4, 5, 6)
5 of the 27 names came from the Prequels (1,2,3)
4 of the 27 names originated in the Disney Era (Rogue One, Force Awakens)
6 of the 27 names came from the Official Cartoons (Clone Wars, Rebels)
Here we go – here is the full list with their score.
Remember – these are FAVORITE villains to these fans, not necessarily the “best” in the SW universe – but favorites. If your curious how the scoring works, ask – we’re happy to share.
