25.  Darth Nihilus

Even if you've never played Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords, the game in which Darth Nihilus made his face-stabbing debut, just reading his name and looking at his rad as all hell mask is enough to tell you that this guy meant business with a capital B written in middle fingers. Within the Star War universe Nihilus is basically a force vampire who only existed to feed and destroy anything so much as touched by the force. The guy is basically a Dementor only instead of happiness he fed on the ability to punch people to death with your mind. Which is of course, massively awesome.

 

24.  HK-47

HK-47 is further proof that the Knights of the Old Republic games introduced more awesome characters to the series than all the fan fiction writers on LSD combined. HK-47 is an assassin droid who studied at the Schwarzenegger school of character development - which explains why the only two things he enjoys are exploding meatbags and delivering one liners. We're not kidding, HK-47 has a sharper tongue than a guy who tried French-kissing a broken mirror and is infinitely more likeable than almost any human character from the main series because those characters don't call people "meatbags".

 

23. Jabba the Hutt

  Toplist Results: The 25 Best Star Wars Characters Ever

It says a lot about the Star Wars series when a fat turd like Jabba the Hutt gets more votes than a guy made of pure hatred who can kill people by calling them names, but what the hey, I guess Jabba the Hutt is kind of cool, right? Like, remember that time when he was strangled to death by a human female a quarter of his size? Or that other time where he tried to feed Skywalker to the Rancor and failed? Oh who are we kidding, we all know Jabba made it onto this list purely because he put Leia in that skimpy outfit - which technically makes him a hero in the eyes of teenage boys everywhere.

 

22. C-3PO

  Toplist Results: The 25 Best Star Wars Characters Ever

C-3PO is one of the only characters in the Star Wars franchise to react to situations the way a real person would, by crapping his pants and loudly exclaiming that he doesn't want to die. He's the straightest character in the entire series which is doubly impressive when you consider that he's also the campiest. His place on this list wasn't just expected - it was guaranteed, if only because his existence made the wrestling match he had with the Cylons on the Simpsons that one time possible.

 

21. Starkiller

  Toplist Results: The 25 Best Star Wars Characters Ever

Starkiller, AKA, Galen Marek (be careful how you pronounce that first name out loud) is the main protagonist from the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed series of games. Within Star Wars canon, Starkiller is literally the most powerful user of the Force to have ever lived, being sufficiently powerful enough to rip a million-ton Star Destroyer out of orbit and slap Darth Vader around like he owed him money. Perhaps the most surprising part about about Starkiller's character is that the games he starred in were so decidedly average and I honestly don't know how it happened. Seriously, how did someone mess up a game based around the concept of mind-uppercutting Stormtroopers into orbit? That sentence alone would net you at least a million dollars on Kickstarter.
