[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/han_solo_sw_118.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:300:''"Never tell me the odds."'']]

-->''"Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid."''

A smuggler and scoundrel from the planet Corellia, and captain of the ''Millennium Falcon'', one of the fastest ships in the galaxy, who was hired by Obi-Wan to provide him transport to [[DoomedHometown Alderaan]]. [[CharacterDevelopment Initially]] only aiding the Rebellion to pay off his debt to Jabba the Hutt, Han proves his heroism and becomes a leader of the Rebels.
----
* SeventiesHair: Han has long seventies-style hair typical of the era of the Original Trilogy's production.
* AcePilot: Han's skills as a pilot are so honed that he was able to fly through an asteroid belt without getting himself killed.
* AndThereWasMuchRejoicing: Part of his UnscrupulousHero attitude was his absolute glee at the destruction of the Death Star and the killing of its crew at the end of the Battle of Yavin: "Great shot, kid! That was one in a million!"
* AntiHero: Han starts out as an UnscrupulousHero in ''A New Hope''. He eventually becomes a KnightInSourArmor.
* AsteroidThicket: See AcePilot. In ''The Empire Strikes Back'', Han, deprived of his hyperdrive, has to slalom through densely packed asteroids to evade an Imperial fleet. This is echoed in Attack of the Clones when Obi-Wan is trying to evade Jango Fett in a planetary ring.
* BadassInDistress: Is rescued by Luke and his companions after being frozen in carbonite and mounted in Jabba's palace.
* BadassLongcoat: During the mission to the Forest Moon of Endor, Han wears a long coat camouflaged to blend into the forest environment.
* BadassNormal: Han is not Force-sensitive, but a great pilot and fighter.
* BashBrothers: With Luke.
* BattleCouple: With Leia throughout the Original Trilogy.
* BelligerentSexualTension: With Leia.
* BestFriendsInLaw: With Luke, assuming he marries Luke's sister Leia.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Develops one towards Luke. Despite always calling him "kid" and having doubts about Luke's plans, Han becomes fond of Luke early on and often goes out of his way to protect or rescue him. In ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'', he risks his own life by going out into dangerously low temperatures to find Luke after he doesn't return to the rebel base.
* BigDamnHeroes: A classic one towards the end of ''A New Hope''. Han swoops in and shoots at Darth Vader just before Vader is able to gun Luke down.
* BigGuyLittleGuy: The little guy to Chewbacca's big guy. At around six feet, Han is slightly on the tall side for a human -- but Chewie dwarfs him at ''seven and a half feet''.
* BilingualDialogue: Han apparently speaks (or at least understands) a variety of languages, including Huttese, Rodian, and Wookiee.
* BloodBrothers: With Chewbacca. While Han most likely didn't think so when he first rescued Chewie, Chewbacca felt [[IOweYouMyLife he had a "life debt" to Han]]. At first, the "brotherhood" was mostly one way but as they traveled together and Han learned more about Chewie and the "life debt", they became true BloodBrothers.
* BreakoutCharacter: Han is generally more popular than Luke is, which is no small feat. It gets to the point that he becomes the only Original Trilogy cast member to receive a major role in ''The Force Awakens'', receiving top billing while Leia is the SupportingLeader and Luke only has a cameo at the end.
* BromanticFoil: With Luke. Han is a cynical mercenary while Luke is an idealistic farm boy.
* ButtMonkey: He does get some AmusingInjuries from time to time, most notably in ''Empire''
* TheCaptain: Of the ''Millennium Falcon''.
* ChangedMyMindKid: Luke and Han come to odds over the attack on the Death Star. Luke is the young idealist, ready to die for a cause. Han is the old cynic who sees it as suicide. When Han saves Luke from Darth Vader at the last minute he grows as a character, finding his loyalty to his FireForgedFriend is important enough to risk his life for.
* CharacterDevelopment: He goes from a cynical smuggler with a focus solely on money to fighting for a cause and becoming one of the Rebellion's pivotal members. By time of ''The Force Awakens'', he ends up being the one who assures Rey and Finn that the Jedi and the Force are real, a far cry from his introduction where he brushes off those things as hokey religions and cheap tricks.
* ConscienceMakesYouGoBack: Most notably at the end of ''A New Hope'', but there are a couple of other examples.
* CoolStarship: The ''Millennium Falcon''.
* CombatPragmatist: While not a Jedi, he is not completely incompetent without his blaster. As demonstrated in ''The Empire Strikes Back'', he knows how to use a lightsaber even if it was briefly. In ''Jedi'' he was able to take out a Scout Trooper with his bare hands.
* TheCynic: In contrast to Luke's WideEyedIdealist.
* CurbStompBattle: Against Vader on Cloud City. Han instantly draws his blaster and fires but Vader easily repels the blaster shots, and levitates the blaster away in the span of three seconds. He only survived because Vader needed him as bait for Luke.
* DeadpanSnarker: The original (and most famous) one in the ''Star Wars'' franchise.
* DistressedDude: The beginning of ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' finds him frozen in carbonite and hanging on Jabba the Hutt's wall. He takes a lot of rescuing.
* TheDogShotFirst: TropeNamer - in the original cut of the movie, he shot Greedo before Greedo could kill him; in later versions of the movie, he fires a split-second after Greedo does, and Greedo proves himself to be [[EpicFail a lousy shot]].
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: The original version of his encounter with Greedo (shooting him before he could aim his weapon) was meant to show that he was a ruthless CombatPragmatist.
* TheFerryman: In ''A New Hope'', Han explicitly [[NotInThisForYourRevolution only signs on to give Luke and Obi Wan a ride]] to the planet Alderaan to take the [[MacGuffin Death Star plans]] to Bail Organa, and [[OnlyInItForTheMoney for a considerable fee at that]]. He gets caught up in the rest of the adventure when they are captured by the Imperials and he ends up helping rescue Princess Leia.
* FrontlineGeneral: In ''Return Of The Jedi'' he becomes a general and leads the strike team that disables the theatre shield protecting the Death Star II. He resigns his commission a few months after Endor in order to liberate Kashyyyk after the New Republic determined it was not high on their list of priorities.
* GallowsHumor: A master at this.
** In ''Film/ANewHope'', when they were trapped in [[AdvancingWallOfDoom in a closing trash compactor]]:
-->'''Han:''' One thing's for sure, we're all gonna be a lot thinner!
** During his rescue from Jabba's Palace in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'':
-->'''Threepio:''' His high exaltedness, the great Jabba the Hutt, has decreed that you are to be terminated immediately.
-->'''Han:''' Good, I hate long waits.
* GoodGunsBadGuns: Han's signature DL-44 is really a rebuilt broomhandle Mauser, normally a 'bad guy' gun. Then again, it is often overlooked that Han Solo is not a hero he's a smuggler. A smuggler with a bad-tempered partner (known to pull people's arms off if beaten at holo-chess), a highly illegal ship, and who has mastered the art of the subtle draw in order to be able to blow away the amateur bounty hunters that come after him if he screws up a smuggling job (no matter which version you believe, Han was definitely drawing his gun under the table and pointing it at Greedo's crotch for several seconds while Greedo talked). This was another clue that Han [[GoodIsNotNice is NOT a nice guy.]]
* GoodIsNotNice: Mostly in ''A New Hope'', where he is helpful to Obi-Wan and Luke, but makes it clear that he couldn't care less if they got killed.
* GuileHero: Like his ship, he's full of surprises.
* TheGunslinger: He was modeled after the cowboy archetype.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Chewie, who owed a Lifedebt to him.
* HollywoodAtheist: Han evidently doesn't believe in the Force, but his tone seems to be relatively less contemptuous than Motti's[[note]]the Imperial officer whose lack of faith Darth Vader finds so disturbing[[/note]], though the consequences to Solo for such contempt would clearly be milder. This may be typical of the times he lives in, as the Empire has done its best to suppress knowledge of the Force. By the time of ''The Force Awakens'', he has gotten out of this mindset, stating to Rey that the legends about the Force and the Jedi are all real.
* HumanPopsicle: Of the Carbonite variety. Vader was using him as a guinea pig before intending to try it on Luke later on. Han gets transported to Jabba's palace in the block and is later freed by Leia.
* ImaginaryLoveTriangle: Thinks he's in a love triangle with Luke and Leia. Who have neglected to tell him they are siblings.
* IntrepidMerchant: In theory he's not a hero, just a businessman. In illegal goods, under a totalitarian regime. So he has to be pretty intrepid just to avoid getting shot.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: In ''Return of the Jedi'', Han has no idea at first that Luke and Leia are twins, and tells Leia that he won't get in the way if Leia prefers Luke. [[SeparatedAtBirth Leia quickly explains the truth about her and Luke's relationship]].
* {{Jerkass}}: Han starts off as an uncaring, cocky hotshot, but eventually reveals that he has a soft spot for Leia and proves himself to be a loyal friend to Luke. Even after his CharacterDevelopment, he's still a jerk, but he's a lot ''[[JerkWithAHeartOfGold nicer]]'' [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold about being a jerk]].
* KnightInSourArmor: After he joins [[LaResistance the Rebel Alliance]]. Han definitely becomes one the end of ''A New Hope''; and he fills a SourSupporter role for the rest of the Original Trilogy.
* TheLancer: He's a sourpuss mercenary with a blaster to contrast the noble farm boy with the lightsaber.
* LeeroyJenkins: Mostly when he's trying to escape from the Death Star in ''A New Hope'', and Luke (somewhat of a Leeroy Jenkins himself) calls him out on it. Han's response? "Bring 'em on! I prefer a straight fight to all this sneaking around!"
* TheLoad: A bit in ''Jedi'', and the DeathStar scene in ''A New Hope'', where he doesn't contribute practically to escaping, Leia gets them away from the stormtroopers in the prison block and Luke did everything else, while honestly all Han did was play up his rogue attitude for the audience and make himself look foolish a couple of time.
* LoveableRogue: Han seems to be so lovable that all the pretty rotten things he has done seem so justifiable that they don't seem to sink in.
* MarriageOfConvenience: [[spoiler:It turns out Han used his wedding to Sana as a cover so he could pull off a heist. Sana is less than pleased with this and considers their marriage to be legally binding, although it turns out she's playing it up because she wants her cut, which he didn't give her.]]
* MeaningfulName: He's a lone wolf star pilot who only looks out for himself and Chewie, as his surname would imply.
* NeverTellMeTheOdds: The TropeNamer, when being told YouHaveNoChanceToSurvive during [[CrazyEnoughToWork a particularly daring]] IndyPloy.
* NiceMeanAndInBetween: The "mean" (albeit with a HiddenHeartOfGold) to Luke's "nice" and Leia's "in-between".
* NobleMaleRoguishMale: The Roguish to Luke's Noble.
* NoMrBondIExpectYouToDine: Dinner with Vader in Cloud City.
* NotInThisForYourRevolution: TropeNamer, although eventually he decides that the revolution is worthwhile after all.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: At the beginning of his character arc, which is justified, as the large sum of money did equate to his life, as otherwise, Jabba the Hutt would have kept the death mark on his head or ''worse''.
* PercussiveMaintenance: While trying to escape Hoth, Han tries to bring the engines online, and they promptly die. So he hits the panel with his fist, and they come back on.
* {{Polyglot}}: Though not as reliable as C-3PO, being able to interpret Chewbacca's bellowing and Jabba's belches definitely counts for something.
* RescueRomance: Although nothing was further from his plans at the time.
* SecretRelationship: Before and during the time between ''A New Hope'' and ''The Empire Strikes Back'', [[spoiler:he was apparently married to a woman named Sana]].
* ShadowArchetype: To Luke in ''A New Hope''. Luke is young and naive, emphatic, believes in the Force, and is a great pilot; Han is OlderAndWiser, self-centered, a FlatEarthAtheist, and is also a great pilot.
* SlapSlapKiss: His relationship with Leia, even after they got married.
-->'''Han:''' That's why I left, so you'd miss me.
* TheSmartGuy: He comes up with more than a fair share of {{Indy Ploy}}s to save the day.
* SourSupporter: Mostly in ''A New Hope'', and to a lesser extent in ''The Empire Strikes Back''. He drops this by ''Return Of The Jedi''.
* StealthInSpace: Han's successful attempts at hiding from Star Destroyers in ''The Empire Strikes Back''. Somewhat realistic, as he simply flies into the Star Destroyer's blind spot and turns off most of the power to the ship, which makes it incredibly difficult to detect.
* TalkingYourWayOut: He '''insists''' that he's good at this, and it works some of the time. [[spoiler:Not so much in ''The Force Awakens''.]]
* TemporaryBlindness: He finds himself with this problem after he was freed in ''Return of the Jedi''.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Han becomes abrasive with his friends in ''Return of the Jedi'' when he begins to suspect Leia loves Luke instead of him.
-->'''Han:''' Hey what's going on?\\
'''Leia:''' Nothing, I just want to be left alone.\\
'''Han:''' Nothing? Come on, tell me, what's going on?\\
'''Leia:''' I can't tell you.\\
'''Han:''' (''angry'') Could you tell Luke? Is that who you can tell!?\\
'''Leia:''' (''looks away'') I... (''breaks into tears'')
* TrueCompanions: With Chewie, Luke, and Leia throughout the Original Trilogy.
* WatchThePaintJob: Han's very reluctant to hand over the keys to the ''Falcon''.

!!Captain Han Solo
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/solo_han.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:300:''"Chewie, we're home."'']]

-->''"People are counting on us! The galaxy is counting on us!"''

Following the Battle of Endor, Han married Leia and continued serving in the New Republic military before eventually having a successful business and racing career. Sadly, personal tragedy resulted in him becoming separated from his two great loves - Leia and the ''Millennium Falcon'' - and Han returned to life as a scoundrel alongside Chewbacca. However, when fate leads him to find the ''Falcon'' in the hands of Rey, Finn, and BB-8, Han is once more drawn into a galactic struggle.
----
* AcePilot: Old age certainly hasn't dulled his edge, proven when he pulls the ''Falcon'' out of hyperspace in between Starkiller Base and the forcefield surrounding it.
* ActionDad: Han Solo is old enough to have an adult son, but that hasn't stopped him from running a smuggling operation across the galaxy. [[spoiler:The only thing that stops him is the chance to turn his own son, Kylo Ren, back to the light.]]
* BadassGrandpa: Despite his greying hair and thirty years of adventure, Han Solo is able to pilot a ship at lightspeed with pinpoint accuracy and gun down Stormtroopers without even looking at them.
* CharacterDeath: Many believed that Han would die in the Sequel Trilogy due to statements made by Harrison Ford regarding his role in the franchise. [[spoiler:They were right.]]
* CoolOldGuy: In ''The Force Awakens''. He's still the biggest DeadpanSnarker in the galaxy, has mellowed out quite a bit since his youth, and mentors Rey and Finn, offering the former a job and helping prod the latter into doing the right thing. It says something that Han, the guy who originally was only in it for himself, Chewie, and the money, is now the one insisting they press on for the sake of the galaxy.
* DeadlyDeferredConversation: When Maz gives Anakin's lightsaber, which Luke had lost in Cloud City, to Finn, Han asks her how she found it. Maz answers that it's AnotherStoryForAnotherTime. [[spoiler: Sadly they won't get that other time.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: He's even ''more'' deadpan if it's even possible and has become even funnier with age.
* DivorceIsTemporary: His relationship with Leia went sour after [[spoiler:their son turned to the Dark Side]]. But the events of ''The Force Awakens'' bring them together again.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: [[spoiler:Goes deep into enemy territory to redeem a prodigal son and then dies on a cross of sorts. His last act is a gesture of forgiveness.]]
* GrumpyOldMan: The passing years have made him even ''snarkier'' than he was in the Original Trilogy if that's even possible, and he and Chewie end up quarreling almost constantly LikeAnOldMarriedCouple.
* HeartbrokenBadass: A past tragedy had a huge effect on him, to the point that it strained his relationship with Leia and resulted in him leaving the Resistance.
* HellBentForLeather: Han Solo has apparently taken to wearing a black leather jacket in place of his iconic black vest from the original trilogy.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:By Kylo, just as Han is trying to convince him to leave the dark side.]] He even pretends to be asking for help while doing it.
* LivingLegend: If Rey and Finn's reaction upon realizing who he is is any indication. "The Rebel general?!" "The smuggler?!" "The war hero?!"
* MentorOccupationalHazard: After assisting the new heroes and teaching them about the Force, and how it is real, Han Solo and Chewbacca end up separated from them so that the heroes have to prove themselves against Kylo Ren with no older characters to bail them out. [[spoiler:like Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon, Han is killed by the villain before the heroes engage in the final battle.]]
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Makes a heartfelt, ''pleading'' appeal for [[spoiler:his son]] to come home. It even seems to be working, until [[spoiler:Ren ignites his lightsaber and completes his journey to the Dark Side.]]
* PassingTheTorch: In ''The Force Awakens'', Han teaches Rey how to pilot the ''Millennium Falcon''. He even offers her a job as 2nd Mate, not knowing she would take over as captain [[spoiler:after his death.]]
* SacrificialLion: Han Solo, despite his age, still manages to hold his own against enemy forces thanks to his PlotArmor inherited from the original trilogy. [[spoiler:This makes it especially shocking when Kylo Ren kills Han and creates more suspense in Ren's battle with the new characters.]]
* SeenItAll: Nothing can surprise him by the time of ''The Force Awakens''. He sees through Finn's bluster even before finding out about his true past.
* SkepticNoLonger: By the time of ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', Han has come to believe in the existence of [[SentientCosmicForce the Force]], telling Rey and Finn that all of the legends relating to it, the Jedi and TheDarkSide are all true. Not bad for someone who once claimed that he had flown from one side of the galaxy to the other and had found nothing that convinced him of a mystical energy field that controlled his destiny.
* TemptingFate: He insists that he always succeeded in [[TalkingYourWayOut talking his way out of things]]. This backfires really bad against [[spoiler:his son, who then murders him]].
* TookALevelInKindness: By the events of ''The Force Awakens'', he's essentially mellowed out with age, and is now a mostly polite but bold individual.
* {{Deuteragonist}}[=/=]{{Tritagonist}}: Behind Rey and Finn, who juggle the positions of [[TheHero Hero]] and {{Deuteragonist}} until the end where Rey becomes the focal protagonist. Han is the third main focal character of ''The Force Awakens''.
* WalkingSpoiler: The biggest plot twists from ''The Force Awakens'' involve him.
* WeaponOfChoice: He still has his DL-44, but he also takes a liking to Chewie's bow caster.
* WideEyedIdealist: In regards to what he thinks of Kylo Ren, according to the various novelizations of ''The Force Awakens''. He believes that, [[spoiler:even after being gutted and left to die by his hands]], that he is not beyond redemption. In spite of everything, he loves his son that much. This is symbolized in the film by him touching Ben's face as he dies.

* FrontlineGeneral: In ''Return Of The Jedi'' he becomes a general and leads the strike team that disables the theatre shield protecting the Death Star II. He resigns his commission a few months after Endor in order to liberate Kashyyyk after the New Republic determined it was not high on their list of priorities.
* GallowsHumor: A master at this.
** In ''Film/ANewHope'', when they were trapped in [[AdvancingWallOfDoom in a closing trash compactor]]:
-->'''Han:''' One thing's for sure, we're all gonna be a lot thinner!
** During his rescue from Jabba's Palace in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'':
-->'''Threepio:''' His high exaltedness, the great Jabba the Hutt, has decreed that you are to be terminated immediately.
-->'''Han:''' Good, I hate long waits.
* GoodGunsBadGuns: Han's signature DL-44 is really a rebuilt broomhandle Mauser, normally a 'bad guy' gun. Then again, it is often overlooked that Han Solo is not a hero he's a smuggler. A smuggler with a bad-tempered partner (known to pull people's arms off if beaten at holo-chess), a highly illegal ship, and who has mastered the art of the subtle draw in order to be able to blow away the amateur bounty hunters that come after him if he screws up a smuggling job (no matter which version you believe, Han was definitely drawing his gun under the table and pointing it at Greedo's crotch for several seconds while Greedo talked). This was another clue that Han [[GoodIsNotNice is NOT a nice guy.]]
* GoodIsNotNice: Mostly in ''A New Hope'', where he is helpful to Obi-Wan and Luke, but makes it clear that he couldn't care less if they got killed.
* GuileHero: Like his ship, he's full of surprises.
* TheGunslinger: He was modeled after the cowboy archetype.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Chewie, who owed a Lifedebt to him.
* HollywoodAtheist: Han evidently doesn't believe in the Force, but his tone seems to be relatively less contemptuous than Motti's[[note]]the Imperial officer whose lack of faith Darth Vader finds so disturbing[[/note]], though the consequences to Solo for such contempt would clearly be milder. This may be typical of the times he lives in, as the Empire has done its best to suppress knowledge of the Force. By the time of ''The Force Awakens'', he has gotten out of this mindset, stating to Rey that the legends about the Force and the Jedi are all real.
* HumanPopsicle: Of the Carbonite variety. Vader was using him as a guinea pig before intending to try it on Luke later on. Han gets transported to Jabba's palace in the block and is later freed by Leia.
* ImaginaryLoveTriangle: Thinks he's in a love triangle with Luke and Leia. Who have neglected to tell him they are siblings.
* IntrepidMerchant: In theory he's not a hero, just a businessman. In illegal goods, under a totalitarian regime. So he has to be pretty intrepid just to avoid getting shot.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: In ''Return of the Jedi'', Han has no idea at first that Luke and Leia are twins, and tells Leia that he won't get in the way if Leia prefers Luke. [[SeparatedAtBirth Leia quickly explains the truth about her and Luke's relationship]].
* {{Jerkass}}: Han starts off as an uncaring, cocky hotshot, but eventually reveals that he has a soft spot for Leia and proves himself to be a loyal friend to Luke. Even after his CharacterDevelopment, he's still a jerk, but he's a lot ''[[JerkWithAHeartOfGold nicer]]'' [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold about being a jerk]].
* KnightInSourArmor: After he joins [[LaResistance the
Rebel Alliance]]. Han definitely becomes one the end of ''A New Hope''; and he fills a SourSupporter role for the rest of the Original Trilogy.
* TheLancer: He's a sourpuss mercenary with a blaster to contrast the noble farm boy with the lightsaber.
* LeeroyJenkins: Mostly when he's trying to escape from the Death Star in ''A New Hope'', and Luke (somewhat of a Leeroy Jenkins himself) calls him out on it. Han's response? "Bring 'em on! I prefer a straight fight to all this sneaking around!"
* TheLoad: A bit in ''Jedi'', and the DeathStar scene in ''A New Hope'', where he doesn't contribute practically to escaping, Leia gets them away from the stormtroopers in the prison block and Luke did everything else, while honestly all Han did was play up his rogue attitude for the audience and make himself look foolish a couple of time.
* LoveableRogue: Han seems to be so lovable that all the pretty rotten things he has done seem so justifiable that they don't seem to sink in.
* MarriageOfConvenience: [[spoiler:It turns out Han used his wedding to Sana as a cover so he could pull off a heist. Sana is less than pleased with this and considers their marriage to be legally binding, although it turns out she's playing it up because she wants her cut, which he didn't give her.]]
* MeaningfulName: He's a lone wolf star pilot who only looks out for himself and Chewie, as his surname would imply.
* NeverTellMeTheOdds: The TropeNamer, when being told YouHaveNoChanceToSurvive during [[CrazyEnoughToWork a particularly daring]] IndyPloy.
* NiceMeanAndInBetween: The "mean" (albeit with a HiddenHeartOfGold) to Luke's "nice" and Leia's "in-between".
* NobleMaleRoguishMale: The Roguish to Luke's Noble.
* NoMrBondIExpectYouToDine: Dinner with Vader in Cloud City.
* NotInThisForYourRevolution: TropeNamer, although eventually he decides that the revolution is worthwhile after all.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: At the beginning of his character arc, which is justified, as the large sum of money did equate to his life, as otherwise, Jabba the Hutt would have kept the death mark on his head or ''worse''.
* PercussiveMaintenance: While trying to escape Hoth, Han tries to bring the engines online, and they promptly die. So he hits the panel with his fist, and they come back on.
* {{Polyglot}}: Though not as reliable as C-3PO, being able to interpret Chewbacca's bellowing and Jabba's belches definitely counts for something.
* RescueRomance: Although nothing was further from his plans at the time.
* SecretRelationship: Before and during the time between ''A New Hope'' and ''The Empire Strikes Back'', [[spoiler:he was apparently married to a woman named Sana]].
* ShadowArchetype: To Luke in ''A New Hope''. Luke is young and naive, emphatic, believes in the Force, and is a great pilot; Han is OlderAndWiser, self-centered, a FlatEarthAtheist, and is also a great pilot.
* SlapSlapKiss: His relationship with Leia, even after they got married.
-->'''Han:''' That's why I left, so you'd miss me.
* TheSmartGuy: He comes up with more than a fair share of {{Indy Ploy}}s to save the day.
* SourSupporter: Mostly in ''A New Hope'', and to a lesser extent in ''The Empire Strikes Back''. He drops this by ''Return Of The Jedi''.
* StealthInSpace: Han's successful attempts at hiding from Star Destroyers in ''The Empire Strikes Back''. Somewhat realistic, as he simply flies into the Star Destroyer's blind spot and turns off most of the power to the ship, which makes it incredibly difficult to detect.
* TalkingYourWayOut: He '''insists''' that he's good at this, and it works some of the time. [[spoiler:Not so much in ''The Force Awakens''.]]
* TemporaryBlindness: He finds himself with this problem after he was freed in ''Return of the Jedi''.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Han becomes abrasive with his friends in ''Return of the Jedi'' when he begins to suspect Leia loves Luke instead of him.
-->'''Han:''' Hey what's going on?\\
'''Leia:''' Nothing, I just want to be left alone.\\
'''Han:''' Nothing? Come on, tell me, what's going on?\\
'''Leia:''' I can't tell you.\\
'''Han:''' (''angry'') Could you tell Luke? Is that who you can tell!?\\
'''Leia:''' (''looks away'') I... (''breaks into tears'')
* TrueCompanions: With Chewie, Luke, and Leia throughout the Original Trilogy.
* WatchThePaintJob: Han's very reluctant to hand over the keys to the ''Falcon''.

[[folder:Tropes from the Sequel Trilogy Era]]
!!Captain Han Solo
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/solo_han.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:300:''"Chewie, we're home."'']]

-->''"People are counting on us! The galaxy is counting on us!"''

Following the Battle of Endor, Han married Leia and continued serving in the New Republic military before eventually having a successful business and racing career. Sadly, personal tragedy resulted in him becoming separated from his two great loves - Leia and the ''Millennium Falcon'' - and Han returned to life as a scoundrel alongside Chewbacca. However, when fate leads him to find the ''Falcon'' in the hands of Rey, Finn, and BB-8, Han is once more drawn into a galactic struggle.
----
* AcePilot: Old age certainly hasn't dulled his edge, proven when he pulls the ''Falcon'' out of hyperspace in between Starkiller Base and the forcefield surrounding it.
* ActionDad: Han Solo is old enough to have an adult son, but that hasn't stopped him from running a smuggling operation across the galaxy. [[spoiler:The only thing that stops him is the chance to turn his own son, Kylo Ren, back to the light.]]
* BadassGrandpa: Despite his greying hair and thirty years of adventure, Han Solo is able to pilot a ship at lightspeed with pinpoint accuracy and gun down Stormtroopers without even looking at them.
* CharacterDeath: Many believed that Han would die in the Sequel Trilogy due to statements made by Harrison Ford regarding his role in the franchise. [[spoiler:They were right.]]
* CoolOldGuy: In ''The Force Awakens''. He's still the biggest DeadpanSnarker in the galaxy, has mellowed out quite a bit since his youth, and mentors Rey and Finn, offering the former a job and helping prod the latter into doing the right thing. It says something that Han, the guy who originally was only in it for himself, Chewie, and the money, is now the one insisting they press on for the sake of the galaxy.
* DeadlyDeferredConversation: When Maz gives Anakin's lightsaber, which Luke had lost in Cloud City, to Finn, Han asks her how she found it. Maz answers that it's AnotherStoryForAnotherTime. [[spoiler: Sadly they won't get that other time.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: He's even ''more'' deadpan if it's even possible and has become even funnier with age.
* DivorceIsTemporary: His relationship with Leia went sour after [[spoiler:their son turned to the Dark Side]]. But the events of ''The Force Awakens'' bring them together again.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: [[spoiler:Goes deep into enemy territory to redeem a prodigal son and then dies on a cross of sorts. His last act is a gesture of forgiveness.]]
* GrumpyOldMan: The passing years have made him even ''snarkier'' than he was in the Original Trilogy if that's even possible, and he and Chewie end up quarreling almost constantly LikeAnOldMarriedCouple.
* HeartbrokenBadass: A past tragedy had a huge effect on him, to the point that it strained his relationship with Leia and resulted in him leaving the Resistance.
* HellBentForLeather: Han Solo has apparently taken to wearing a black leather jacket in place of his iconic black vest from the original trilogy.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:By Kylo, just as Han is trying to convince him to leave the dark side.]] He even pretends to be asking for help while doing it.
* LivingLegend: If Rey and Finn's reaction upon realizing who he is is any indication. "The
Alliance
** [[Characters/StarWarsRebelHeroes
Rebel general?!" "The smuggler?!" "The war hero?!"
* MentorOccupationalHazard: After assisting the new heroes
Heroes]]: '''Chewbacca'''
*** [[Characters/StarWarsLeiaOrgana Leia Organa]]
*** '''[[Characters/StarWarsHanSoloCharacterSheet Han Solo]]'''
** [[Characters/StarWarsRebelAllianceAndNewRepublicIntelligence Rebel Alliance Intelligence]]: Airen Cracken, Adame
and teaching them about the Force, Selentia, Bot, Dorae
* [[Characters/StarWarsSpacers Spacers]]: Loo Re Anno, Nowk
and how it is real, Han Solo and Chewbacca end up separated from them so that the heroes have to prove themselves against Kylo Ren with no older characters to bail them out. [[spoiler:like Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon, Han is killed by the villain before the heroes engage in the final battle.]]
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Makes a heartfelt, ''pleading'' appeal for [[spoiler:his son]] to come home. It even seems to be working, until [[spoiler:Ren ignites his lightsaber and completes his journey to the Dark Side.]]
* PassingTheTorch: In ''The Force Awakens'', Han teaches Rey how to pilot the ''Millennium Falcon''. He even offers her a job as 2nd Mate, not knowing she would take over as captain [[spoiler:after his death.]]
* SacrificialLion: Han Solo, despite his age, still manages to hold his own against enemy forces thanks to his PlotArmor inherited from the original trilogy. [[spoiler:This makes it especially shocking when Kylo Ren kills Han and creates more suspense in Ren's battle with the new characters.]]
* SeenItAll: Nothing can surprise him by the time of ''The Force Awakens''. He sees through Finn's bluster even before finding out about his true past.
* SkepticNoLonger: By the time of ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', Han has come to believe in the existence of [[SentientCosmicForce the Force]], telling Rey and Finn that all of the legends relating to it, the Jedi and TheDarkSide are all true. Not bad for someone who once claimed that he had flown from one side of the galaxy to the other and had found nothing that convinced him of a mystical energy field that controlled his destiny.
* TemptingFate: He insists that he always succeeded in [[TalkingYourWayOut talking his way out of things]]. This backfires really bad against [[spoiler:his son, who then murders him]].
* TookALevelInKindness: By the events of ''The Force Awakens'', he's essentially mellowed out with age, and is now a mostly polite but bold individual.
* {{Deuteragonist}}[=/=]{{Tritagonist}}: Behind Rey and Finn, who juggle the positions of [[TheHero Hero]] and {{Deuteragonist}} until the end where Rey becomes the focal protagonist. Han is the third main focal character of ''The Force Awakens''.
* WalkingSpoiler: The biggest plot twists from ''The Force Awakens'' involve him.
* WeaponOfChoice: He still has his DL-44, but he also takes a liking to Chewie's bow caster.
* WideEyedIdealist: In regards to what he thinks of Kylo Ren, according to the various novelizations of ''The Force Awakens''. He believes that, [[spoiler:even after being gutted and left to die by his hands]], that he is not beyond redemption. In spite of everything, he loves his son that much. This is symbolized in the film by him touching Ben's face as he dies.
