The 50 Best Minor Characters in Star Wars

Because not everyone can be the one that saves (or destroys) the galaxy.

Everyone knows Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, and Darth Vader, but what about E-3P0, Ben Quadinaros, GA-87, or Paodok’Draba’Takat Sap’De’Rekti Nik’Linek’Ti’ Ki’Vef’Nik’NeSevef’Li’Kek?

These are 50 cinematic Star Wars characters who might have not gotten a lot of screen time, but we still love them anyway.

1 of 50
50. Salacious B. Crumb

Return of the Jedi

Possibly the most “wtf” creature in the entire Star Wars universe, this weird creature—described as a monkey-lizard—is Jabba the Hutt’s jester. One the best parts of Return of the Jedi is when Jabba’s sand yacht Khetanna explodes, forever silencing that horrible, horrible laugh.

49. Chairman Papanoida

Revenge of the Sith

. Let’s move on.

48. Yaddle

The Phantom Menace

A female of Yoda’s species. This should be a much bigger deal than her appearance in The Phantom Menace suggests. Unfortunately we still don’t know the name of Yoda’s species.

47. Kabe

A New Hope

This little bat dude wants that drink so bad. I can respect that.

5 of 50
46. Temiri Blagg aka Broom Boy

The Last Jedi

Temiri Blagg doesn’t do much but sweep in The Last Jedi, but it’s how he sweeps that’s the most important thing. In the last scene of the film, Blagg is shown force-pulling a broom to him and staring up to the stars. Who knows if we’ll see this kid again—probably not—but it’s a fitting end after watching the passing of a Jedi master who was once much like Blagg himself.

45. Major Bren Derlin

The Empire Strikes Back

Sometimes you wanna to go, where every Jedi knows your name.

44. Logray

Return of the Jedi

Yeah, yeah. People like Wicket, but I was always way more into Logray. He’s the Ewok who’s bossing everyone around, and he has a cool hat and staff.

43. Tion Medon

Revenge of the Sith

Tion Medon looks more evil than Darth Maul and Emperor Palpatine put together. But in Revenge of the Sith, George Lucas pulls a fast one and reveals that Medon—who’s face looks like death itself—is actually a good guy, giving The Republic a heads-up about General Grievous’ whereabouts. What a nice guy!

42. E-3P0

The Empire Strikes Back

We only see this C-3P0 lookalike for a brief second, saying “E chu ta” before disappearing offscreen, but he’s got droid sass and honey, and we want more of it. Although we know that the phrase is Huttese, we don’t know what it says. But a Star Wars phrase book, written by actual sound designer Ben Burtt, says that the phrase is too obscene to translate. We’ll just leave it at that.

41. Dianoga

A New Hope

To this day I don’t like swimming in oceans for fear that a Dianoga will suck me under.

40. Yarael Poof

The Phantom Menace

Look at that neck, man.

39. Labria

A New Hope

You know that guy in the Mos Eisley Cantina who looks like the devil? Well, his real name is Kardue'sai'Malloc and he’s "The Butcher of Montellian Serat," aka one bad dude. His species is Devaronian and he might have murdered tons of people when he was an army captain. But 19 years after the Battle of Yavin, Boba Fett eventually captured him and turned him over to the Devarons leading to his eventual death by being eaten alive.

Also, that quick glance at the camera? Super creepy.

13 of 50
38. MSE-6 Mouse Droid

A New Hope

I’ve wondered about the actual use of this Death Star droid for years. Supposedly it can deliver and repair things, though the design of the droid would suggest it’s bad at both. I think the most intriguing thing about MSE-6 is that it can feel fear.

37. TT-8L/Y7 gatekeeper droid

Return of the Jedi

We don't really know what this gatekeeper is saying to C-3Po and R2-D2, all we know is that it's sassy—and we love it.

15 of 50
36. Dead Red Five

Rogue One

We all know that Luke’s call sign during the attack against the original Death Star is Red 5, which means the Red 5 pilot in Rogue One, which takes places only moments before the opening scene of A New Hope, isn’t going to make it out of this scrap alive. But hey, at least his call sign will become famous.

16 of 50
35. GA-97

The Force Awakens

I’m not sure what it is about this little guy, but when he pops up during The Force Awakens it’s hard not to crack a smile. Whether it’s the fact that his mouth is so obviously a Shure microphone or that he’s overall just a walking junkbot, he’s my favorite member of the Resistance.

17 of 50
34. Jobin

The Empire Strikes Back

So you never actually see Jobin in any of the Star Wars films, but you do hear him. He’s the guy who says “Imperial troops have entered the base. Imperial troops have en—” (at about 1:01 in the clip above).

Turns out he’s actually the son of Mon Mothma, the leader of the Rebellion. Unfortunately, Vader kills him during the assault on Hoth.

33. Teedo

The Force Awakens

Just a weird desert lizard thing scavenging Jakku on his cybernetic pack animal.

32. Cornelius Evazan and Ponda Baba

Rogue One, A New Hope

This murderous duo created the very first time we saw the devastating effects of a lightsaber. Ponda Baba sacrificed his arm for that moment, and we thank him—and his ugly companion—for their service.

31. Paodok’Draba’Takat Sap’De’Rekti Nik’Linke’Ti’ Ki’Vef’Nik’NeSevef’Li’Kek aka Pao

Rogue One

His name might be a mouthful, but this little guy from Rogue One is the only non-human on the team that assaults the Imperial base on Scarif. Plus, he looks awesome.

30. Garindan Ezz Zavor

A New Hope

Also known as Long Snout, this imperial spy always stuck out in our my minds as one of the more sinister-looking creatures in the Star Wars universe. In The Force Awakens, The First Order agent feels like a callback, but we’re going to go with the OG.

22 of 50
29. Nopetroopers

The Force Awakens

In the original trilogy and the sequels, Stormtroopers didn’t appear to have the highest intelligence. Not so in The Force Awakens. When Kylo Ren rages at his computer console, they go back the way they came. Good thinking.

23 of 50
28. Ben Quadinaros

The Phantom Menace

The pod race is filled with all kinds of crazy characters, but we really identify with Ben Quadinaros. Who hasn’t gotten in their vehicle only to have it refuse to turn over? Maybe you’re late for work and you start pounding the steering wheel in frustration. Luckily, the similarities end there, as Quadinaros’ conundrum ends explosively.

27. Lobot

The Empire Strikes Back

Famously stoic and famously bald, Lobot is a human aided with a cyborg construct attached to his head. He doesn’t say much as Lando’s head of security, but his backstory .

26. Kit Fisto

Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith

Although one of the more badass Jedi in the original expanded universe, Kit Fisto doesn’t get too much screen time. But the little he gets is the best.

25. Lor San Tekka

The Force Awakens

We only get one scene with Lor San Tekka before he’s cut down in cold blood by Kylo Ren, but his brief appearance is one of the more intriguing moments of the entire film. Not to mention he’s portrayed by none other than Max von Sydow.

27 of 50
24. Admiral Conan Antonio Motti

A New Hope

Your lack of faith: It's disturbing.

28 of 50
23. Paige Tico

The Last Jedi

We learn a lot about Paige Tico through her sister Rose in The Last Jedi, but her story is cut criminally short during the bombing run against The First Order’s Fulminatrix. Her heroic sacrifice sets the tone for the rest of the dark and blood-drenched film.

22. Sidon Ithano

The Force Awakens

We hardly see this guy at all, but he looks so. freaking. cool. Sidon Ithano—also known as the Red Raider(!), the Blood Buccaneer(!!), and the Crimson Corsair(!!!)—is equally parts Boba Fett and Imperial Guard and 100 percent badass. Fun fact: His helmet comes from the same race of people as General Grievous (before he became a cyborg) but Sidon is actually a race Star Wars fans have yet to see. How did this guy not get more screen time?

30 of 50
21. Exogorth

The Empire Strikes Back

Although a very large presence in The Empire Strikes Back, you only actually see the Exogorth for just a second. But this massive space worm provides one of the more otherworldly moments in the entire Star Wars franchise.
