My Top 10 Most Hated Star Wars Characters

Here it is. As of Episode VIII, these are my "Top 10 Most Hated Star Wars Characters."

Note: This is a serious exercise, so only significant characters from the live-action films were eligible—no Clone Wars-only characters, no obscure extras, no non-speaking Jedi created purely to sell toys. I debated with myself whether to include Rogue One, but after trying to do this without it, I realized that I am not naturally a hateful person, and I would not have been able to name 10 characters I despised from only the saga films.

Also, the order is from "No. 1 Most Hated" to "No. 10 Least Hated of the Most Hated." I'm not gonna drag out the suspense. Starting from the top:

  1. Poe Dameron
  2. Cassian Andor (the Rebel captain from Rogue One)
  3. Chirrut Îmwe (the blind Donnie Yen guy from Rogue One)
  4. Maz Kanata
  5. DJ (the stuttering Benicio Del Toro from The Last Jedi)
  6. Young Anakin (Jake Lloyd version)
  7. Bodhi Rook (the pilot with the aviator goggles from Rogue One)
  8. Bail Organa
  9. Vice Admiral Holdo
  10. Chancellor Valorum
This is a living list. It is subject to change as new movies come out, or as my mood changes. Snoke contended for that last spot, but I realized that it was not so much the character I hated as it was the way he was handled.

What about Donnie Yen's friend? Why isn't he on the list?

Donnie Yen's friend (AKA the other Chinese guy in Rogue One) was just as pointless, but he was not nearly as annoying, and the movie mercifully never asked us to pretend that he was anything more than a guy who carried a big gun.
