What are the most satisfying Star Wars deaths in the entire saga?Deaths in the Star Wars movies are a dime a dozen. After all, the word "wars" is in the title, so what do you expect? But while plenty of stormtroopers eat it without much notice, other characters' deaths have impact. A lot of those deaths are tragic. Tear-jerking even. I mean, you saw The Force Awakens. So you know how it ends. And you cried, at least a little bit. (It's OK to admit it.) But some Star Wars deaths are, frankly, thrilling. Here are the Stars Wars deaths that make us stand up and cheer every time.
Director Krennic is in charge of the Death Star's construction. He's evil and awesome.
It's pretty cool when Krennic gets blowed up good by his own blow-up machine. Kablooey!
Darth Maul is the epitome of a character who looks super cool but actually does nothing and is very boring. He extremely sucks.
Since Darth Maul is such a god-awful character, it's very satisfying when Obi-Wan Kenobi cuts him the hell in half and pushes his bisected body down a reactor shaft.
Before there was Darth Maul, there was Boba Fett, a dude who became popular for looking cool without doing anything interesting at all.
Boba Fett deserves his ignominious fate when his dumb jet pack launches him into the side of Jabba's barge, sending him to roll pathetically into the mouth of a sarlacc. What an idiot!
Captain Needa is a good captain. He does a good job and follows the rules. When he loses the Millennium Falcon during a chase, he takes responsibility and apologizes to Darth Vader.
Darth Vader doesn't care that Captain Needa has integrity. He force-chokes him to death anyway. That's pretty cold, Darth!
Nute Gunray is an incredibly annoying and shockingly racist character who represents all that sucks about the "Star Wars" prequels.
We have to deal with this stupid character for all three prequels before Anakin finally murders his ass. It feels good when it happens.
Greedo is a stupid-looking alien who tries to tell Han Solo what's up, and it's pretty obvious that's a bad move because Han is the coolest.
Greedo threatens Han, so Han doesn't even hesitate before he murders the freaking crap out of Greedo. He doesn't even give Greedo a chance to react, he totally shoots him first. That's what happens.
Like Captain Needa, Admiral Ozzel pisses Vader off by screwing up. Ozzel is way more sucky than Needa, but it doesn't matter either way because the results are the same...
"He is as clumsy as he is stupid," Vader says of Ozzel, and you know that's a wrap for the admiral. But it's still so satisfying when Darth force-chokes him to death over the phone. Darth Vader is so cool, you guys.
Shmi is Darth Vader's mom. She's weird and creepy, and she reveals that Darth Vader was immaculately conceived, which is by far the dumbest thing that happens in all of "Star Wars."
Shmi's death is meant to be sad, but it's not, because she's such a terrible character. It's also satisfying because it makes teenaged Anakin sad, which is good because he sucks. Lord, the prequels are terrible.
Do we really need to describe Darth Vader to you? Come on.
Darth Vader is the coolest and most badass fictional character ever. You fear him, then hate him, then love him. He's like, "Sorry, Luke. Sorry I was such a bad dad." And we're just like, "Hey, it's cool." Plus you find out he's a weird old dude with a crusty, burned-up head, which is awesome.
Jabba the Hutt
Jabba the Hutt is an interplanetary gangster crime boss, which would be cool as hell if he weren't also a vile sex trafficker with chained-up sex slaves.
Jabba the Hutt
Who gets the best of the crime lord Hutt? Is it an angry bounty hunter, or a rival kingpin? Nope! It's slave Leia, who chokes him entirely to death with her own sex-slave chain. What a boss.
He's the Emperor. He's the Big Bad. He's Darth Vader's boss. You get it.
I mean, duh. Not only is he the main villain, but he's just such a shitbag, laughing and stuff while Vader tries to kill his own son. So it's wicked satisfying when he gets murked down the Death Star's core shaft.
Qui-Gon Jinn sucks, right? We all agree? He's the epitome of everything that's boring and dreary about "The Phantom Menace."
Qui-Gon eats it when Darth Maul plows his lightsaber through the Jedi Master's chest. It's a relief because you know you won't have to watch him through the rest of the prequels. (They're still terrible, though.)
