General Hux (born 0 ABY on Arkanis; died 35 ABY on the Steadfast in the Kijimi system) is a First Order general who gets into power struggles with Kylo Ren.

Why He's More Loathsome Than The Resistance

  1. He's a rip-off of Grand Moff Tarkin, from head to toe. Especially since he is clearly meant to be the new Grand Moff Tarkin.
  2. He's very incompetent and inefficient as a Tarkin.
  3. His Nazi speech is extremely cringeworthy to watch.
  4. He's stupid enough to act as a spy for the Resistance, all just because he hates Kylo Ren.
  5. The way he is portrayed is very inconsistent, where he seemingly is the main General in the first two movies of the sequel trilogy, but then was apparently succeeded by Pryde with no clear explanation.
  6. He is a punching-bag. In The Last Jedi he was pushed around by Snoke and Kylo Ren as well as being played by Poe Dameron. In the next movie he was treated like trash again; Kylo Ren shuts him up for talking during one scene, he was shot by Poe in the leg, and then was executed by Pryde for being a traitor. He should not be a high-ranking military officer if no one respects him.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The fact that according to the expanded universe comics and novels, he had an abusive dad combined with the fact that he was bullied for being a bastard child might make you feel a little sorry for him.
  2. Domhnall Gleeson does a fine job playing him. (Aside from the afmorementioned Nazi speech.)
  3. In the character's defense, he does come off as a threatening villain in The Force Awakens.
  4. Despite his speech is cringeworthy, he delivers before the destruction of the Hosnian system is memorable.
