Star Wars Characters that Deserve their Hype.: 1/13/2016 00:02:34

I made a list back in the day of underrated SW characters that don't get the hype they deserve. I said I was going to make more lists and I never did. Thought I'd change that. Please don't comment on this thread if it doesn't involve what the topic is about. Without further adieu, let's make a list.

Jango Fett: The best bounty hunter of his time. He fought off Obi-Wan Kenobi, one of the best Jedi of his time. His ship, the Slave I, is a SW icon.

Boba Fett: The best bounty hunter of his time. He only needed five lines in the movies to become a poster boy for the SW franchise. Killed Jedi, doesn't take sh*t from Darth Vader, and fought Vader to a draw.

Mace Windu: Badass. Made his own lightsaber style of fighting. Fought Darth Sidious and had the upper hand in the fight.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: He was the best duelist of his time when it came to his fighting style. Killed Darth Maul. Killed General Grievous. Defeated Darth Vader, the reason for Vader's suit.

Yoda: It's Yoda, man. His usage of the Force was amazing. He was looked to as the leader of the Jedi Order for a reason.

Darth Sidious: He planned it all. He had an entire galaxy play into his hands, and he did it perfectly. He sacrificed his own health and looks (fight with Windu) in order to have Anakin join the Dark Side. Even after his diminished health, he kept Vader in check, and ruled the galaxy until his end. He came back twice more (because we're saying "f*ck Disney" and sticking with the EU for this list).

Han Solo: For all the times he's goofed up, he's an expert pilot and became a war general for the Rebel Alliance, or whatever the hell they call themselves now.

Leia: Some say she's a damsel-in-distress character and not a good role model for girls. Bullshit. This crazy bitch is a good shot, choked out the crime lord, Jabba the Hutt, and went on to become the leader of the Rebel Alliance, or whatever the hell they call themselves now.

Luke: is not on this list; he sucks.

Darth Revan: Darth Revan. Badass looks. Badass fighting style. Badass Force wielding. Badass history. Badass.

Plo Koon: He's not a big role in the movies, yet he has a decent-sized fanbase. It's because he can survive for a time in a vacuum. It's because he has a voice that is like Bane from the DKR, only mixed with Morgan Freeman. It's because he has a lightsaber with every color under the sun (look it up. He had a LOT of saber colors). It's because he has a lightsaber gauntlet. It's because he can use Force Lightning without feeling hate or contempt.

Kit Fisto: He is Space Bob Marley, only he can use the Force. Second-to-last Jedi to die at the hands of Sidious in his room. His body disappears from the movie when it should be lying limp on the floor, sparking theories that he didn't die, or passed into the Force like Obi-Wan, which I guess is a big deal.

Count Dooku: Christopher Lee. Absolute savage. He was arguably the best duelist when he was alive. Taught Qui-Gon Jinn.

Anakin Skywalker: The cartoon did right by Anakin, unlike the movies, which is why people like him and why he is on this list. He's the CHOSEN ONE.

R2-D2 and C3PO: In the very first scene, they walk through a hail of blaster fire without being hit. When you think about it, the movies really are about them.

All the lightsaber dueling in the Padawan Menace Trilogy is almost entirely Japanese Kendo.

The fighting in original trilogy slowly evolved as the duelists got better, with heavy kendo influence.

It's a big reason they avoid thrusts in the series : in kendo, one point move you can make is a thrust to the throat, but that can only be performed by very expert kendoka due to its danger. Therefore, slashing moves are the only alternative, particularly to the torso, wrist and head.

Oh, and when a duelist raises their lightsaber overhead so as to make a downwards strike,that is a common kendo move.

Look it up for more

So, it seems that people are added to this list, not on the strength of their character, but on how badass they are lol

Plo Koon is awesome. I loved to play him in Jedi Power Battles
