The fan reception to Jar Jar summed up in one image.
It's a big galaxy and not everyone's going to come off smelling like roses.
- C-3PO didn't have a bad response in the original Star Wars, but after The Empire Strikes Back... well, in an interview, George Lucas said some people considered the android "the worst character ever". It's kind of hard to fault them for thinking so due to him gaining characterization in Empire by being a shrill worrywart that never shuts up and constantly rattles off unfavorable statistics about their current situation. However, most fans have since warmed up to the character over the years.
- Oh Lord, Jar Jar Binks (who was introduced during the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy) gets a lot of hate, so much so that the German and Russian versions of this site named The Scrappy after him. Many would argue the fact that he's considered an alien caricature of Jamaican people makes him an Ethnic Scrappy as well. None of them found this supposed Plucky Comic Relief character either plucky or comical—and frankly somebody they needed relief from! (Discuss!) He is such an infamous character, that there have been at least 32 fansites dedicated solely to bashing him. It seems George Lucas got the message, giving Jar Jar Binks a smaller role in Attack of the Clones and giving him only a few cameos in Revenge of the Sith, and that's not even getting to the Expanded Universe - one reviewer in particular noted that seeing Jar Jar suspended in carbonite was the highlight of The Force Unleashed.
- Especially irritating in that BRIAN BLESSED's Boss Nass could have fulfilled the same role as many found him genuinely amusing in his few appearances.
- Surprisingly enough, however, many actually viewed Jar Jar as having been Rescued from the Scrappy Heap in The Clone Wars, thanks to having other people express annoyance with his behavior, while making him more of a Bumbling Sidekick and Beast Master, which resulted in him being a much more enjoyable comic relief character than in his debut.
- Jar Jar made a surprise appearance in one of the interludes in Aftermath: Empire's End for the first time in the new canon. However, instead of anger, fans ended up feeling pity for him when it was revealed that he was hated by the galaxy at large for giving Palpatine emergency powers (and thus helping the transition from Republic to Empire), shunned by both the New Republic and Empire, exiled from his home planet and reduced to a street performer for children (who love him when the adults do not) to make a living, all the while regretting his consequential decision as a Senator.
- It got to where even Ahmed Best (the voice and mo-cap actor for Jar Jar) admitted that while he enjoyed playing the character, he totally gets why people despise Jar Jar and says he will not reprise the role in any future Star Wars works. And in mid-2018, he revealed that the severe backlash he received over the role almost drove him to commit suicide.
- During the making of The Force Awakens, J. J. Abrams seriously considered including the skeleton of Jar Jar as a background gag. That's right, Jar Jar is so thoroughly despised that even the people who make the Star Wars movies almost took a potshot at him.
- LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales proceeded to fill the film with Take That, Scrappy! moments for Jar Jar, having him often randomly wander into the scene and be killed over and over.
- Perplexingly, a fan wrote a somewhat famous theory in Reddit about why Jar Jar was really a Sith overlord, which basically was using Fridge Brilliance to the extreme. The popularity of this theory went well beyond Reddit. There are even websites with fan fiction about this theory.
- WAC-47 and Colonel Meebur Gascon were this during the D-squad arc in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, with some people finding the duo so annoying that they even made comparisons to Jar Jar Binks.
- Mart Mattin from the Rebels episode "Iron Squadron" was disliked by many viewers for being a bland, arrogant jerkass who thinks he can take on the entire Empire, even though he didn't even know what a Star Destroyer is note . Throughout the episode, Ezra and Sabine constantly warn Mart and his crew to evacuate to escape a large Imperial fleet, which they constantly ignore. Later, when said fleet attacks Mart's freighter, the crew evacuates to Ezra's dropship while Mart stays behind and tries to attack the fleet all by himself. This incredibly selfish and stupid act results in Mart's ship getting damaged beyond use and himself getting captured, forcing Phoenix Squadron to risk their lives again to rescue him. He's supposed to be a stand-in for The Wolverines, but the audience got to see them kicking Soviet ass before getting defeated by actual special forces. Needless to say, most viewers wanted Mart to die to save the rest of the cast the trouble.
- Ralsius Paldora from Star Wars Battlefront II (2017), the Imperial defector Han meets during the Skirmish on Takodana. While having good intentions, he has a truly obnoxious, patronizing personality that could rival Jar Jar Binks for sheer annoyance, he never shuts up about what's going on around him, and he's as useless as a man's nipple during gameplay due to his complete lack of combat experience. Thankfully, he only appears in one mission and the other characters don't like him much either, but the few minutes you do spend with him will make you wish you could put a blaster bolt through his skull.
- Jaxxon from the 70s Marvel Star Wars is one of the earliest characters in the franchise to be derided by the fans, largely due to him being an alien Rascally Rabbit in a Flash Gordon-esque spandex. The fact that he speaks rabbit puns, pilots a spacecraft called the Rabbit's Foot, and having a romance with the human Amaiza Foxtrain has made him into the poster-boy of the campiness that many Star Wars fans wanted to forget. Frequently, he's been ranked in the polls of Star Wars magazines as one of the goofiest additions in Star Wars Legends, with many equating him to Jar Jar Binks. It isn't helped by the fact that Lucasfilm seems to hate the character as well,note with a skeleton of his species being featured in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and a variant cover of Star Wars 1: Skywalker Strikes featuring the OT cast trying to prevent Jaxxon from getting into the new Disney canon.
- Star Wars: The Old Republic has some companion characters that make the player base wish BioWare kept in the "kill companion" option.
- Pretty much nobody likes Callista. Though she was hardly the worst or dumbest part of her books, the idea of her being Luke Skywalker's One True Love was something that nobody wanted, mostly due to her Relationship Sue status and general poor writing. Her only appearance after her series was getting eaten by an Eldritch Abomination.
- Admiral Daala is widely mocked among the fandom thanks to the massive amount of Informed Ability she has going, constantly claiming to be a genius prodigy held back only by sexism right before charging her fleet against a weaker opponent and slinking back home after having lost three-quarters of it. They tried to rescue her by having her finally show some talent in Legacy of the Force, but her appearances came off as contrived and silly, and her plans working due to every single character involved grabbing the Idiot Ball. When a tactical genius getting retconned to have brain damage has most of the fandom shrugging and saying "That sounds about right," you know you've messed up.
- The Sun Crusher is perhaps unique in all fiction for being a starship that qualifies as The Scrappy, garnering a hatedom by fans because of how ridiculously overpowered it is. While there are many superweapons capable of destroying entire planets, they usually have clearly defined weaknesses (sluggish mobility, slow fire rate, vulnerable to attacks by small fighters, and so forth). The Sun Crusher however lacks any real weaknesses and its offensive firepower surpasses even those of both Death Stars. This small starfighter carries torpedoes that can destroy an entire star system, as opposed to a single planet like all other superweapons. The Sun Crusher was also shown to be Nigh Invulnerable as it could ram through a Star Destroyer without a scratch and survive a hit from a planet-shattering superlaser similar to the one used on the Death Star. For many fans, the Sun Crusher was considered an overpowered plot device whose capabilities destroyed any sense of balance while outshining the iconic Death Stars. That and it has a derpy appearance. It proved to be so troublesome that even its creator couldn't think of a way to effectively destroy it and just had to dump it into a black hole and hope that did the trick.
- Rosh Penin from Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is not well-liked due to his annoying voice, recklessness, and blatantly telegraphed FaceHeel Turn. That killing him right before the end is how you pick your ending indicates he was supposed to be annoying, but the developers did too well - rejecting the opportunity to cut him down is a test worthy of a true Jedi Knight.
