Best Star Wars Villains – Bags’ Top 10

The “Star Wars Celebration Day” last week fed us some very awesome news in the Star Wars universe. We got a tighter release window for the standalone series “Ahsoka” (August 2023), Andor season 2 was officially announced, and we found out we’re getting 3 more movies in the franchise.
With all of this Star Wars on the brain, I figured I would take my time to rank some of my favorite villains in the Star Wars universe. So let’s get to it.

10. Kylo Ren
9. Jango Fett
8. Cad Bane
7. Count Dooku
6. Moff Gideon
5. Emperor Palpatine
4. Boba Fett
3. General Grievous
2. Darth Maul
1. Darth Vader

I feel like you have to give Vader the #1 spot here. He’s basically the face of the franchise, as he’s recognizable to people who don’t even watch Star Wars. I made sure to save a spot for Cad Bane from the animated series and his brief appearance in the Book of Boba Fett.
I also felt weird about including Boba Fett on this list, given his redemption tale from both the Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. He technically was never a villain at all. Just a bounty hunter doing his job. But he was definitely treated as a villain in the original trilogy, so I included him here.

Who are your favorite Star Wars baddies?
