Talk:Lists of minor characters in Star Wars

Purpose of this page[edit]

This page was created in reaction to a number of stub articles about minor characters in the Star Wars universe that kept showing up on Wikipedia:Votes for deletion. If only a paragraph or two can be written on a Star Wars character, then that character belongs here, instead of in an independent article. Kevyn 05:46, 29 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Links and redirects to this page[edit]

Links and redirects to individual characters on this page may be created using this format:

Link: [[Minor characters in Star Wars#CHARACTERNAME]]
Redirect: #REDIRECT[[Minor characters in Star Wars#CHARACTERNAME]]

Note that currently redirects of this form will not behave differently from a redirect to the whole page, but:
  1. they give a hint to other editors of the intention of the redirect; and
  2. a feature for handling them "properly" may be added in a later version of the software.
Ordinary links in this form really do link directly to the appropriate section. - IMSoP 17:53, 27 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Splitting up this page[edit]

At this time (30-AUG-2004), there are about 50 minor characters listed here. If this list continues to grow, it will eventually be long enough to require splitting into multiple pages. The easiest way to do it would be along alphabetical lines, but there are other ways it could be done as well: Jedi, Expanded Universe, Imperials, Rebels, Aliens, etc. Kevyn 23:35, 30 Aug 2004 (UTC)

General Veers[edit]

I think that the General Veers section is long enough to give him his own page again.- B-101 14:53, 14 Oct 2004 (UTC)

I also agree with this. General Maximillian Veers is outgrowing his section here at minor characters. I suggest we re-create his article, move everything here over, and provide a summary and link to his article from this page, much like articles for planets do in Planets of Star Wars. I can also provide a picture once set up. Actually I could do this now. -- Riffsyphon1024 18:56, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)


What evidence do you have that the Rodian in that Episode I outtake was Greedo's father, not the Greedo who Han killed?- B-101 15:03, 14 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Separate page for expanded universe?[edit]

Who's with me on the creation of a separate page Minor characters from the Star Wars expanded universe, for those characters who never appear in any of the films. As a fan of the original movies, but someone who could really not care less about all the thousands of books and whatnot that people create to make more money off the Star Wars name, I sort of think they clutter up this list, which is now pretty long. I mean "Luuke Skywalker"? What the crap is that about? I swore it was a typo at first. What do people think? -R. fiend 05:26, 19 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Then just write "Luuke [sic] Skywalker". 12:58, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Maybe we can put an asterisk next to characters who appear in the expanded universe like what we did with Star Wars ships.- B-101 16:05, 21 Dec 2004 (UTC)

It only seems necesesary if the list really gets out of hand. First, we must find all the character stubs that are floating around wikipedia and merge them into this article. Only then can we determine if a EU page is needed. -- Riffsyphon1024 18:52, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)

A joke?[edit]

This page can't be serious. 'List of minor residents of what the f***'?! 'List of minor Star Wars policemen'?! 'List of minor Star Wars yankee doodle characters'? Someone has editted this page, methinks.


I'm working on amalgamating this and all the other god-awful lists at Category:Lists_of_Star_Wars_characters to remove all the ORish and arbitrary topics (i.e. what makes a character a "villain"? what if he/she later is "good"?) and repetition (e.g. Leia shows up on several of them). Once I've squished them together, they can be broken up just alphabetically like the slightly-less-crappy Star Trek character lists. I've copy-and-pasted these lists as of ~11:30EST 3 Oct -- if you make any additions to this list, I'll try to be sure to maintain them in the reworked version, but please be mindful that something might accidentally be overlooked. Thanks! --EEMIV (talk) 15:39, 3 October 2008 (UTC)[reply]


I plan on Monday to replace the current content of List of Star Wars characters with the material at User:EEMIV/StarWarsCharacters, and then to redirect this page to that updated list. Much of the content on this page will go away -- for the better. Wikipedia is an indiscriminate collection of information, even on its list pages, and many of the entries were are truly insignificant characters. If you take exception to this plan, please say so here. --EEMIV (talk) 11:20, 9 October 2008 (UTC)[reply]
