Snoke (Star Wars)
"You think you can turn him? Pathetic child, I cannot be betrayed. I cannot be beaten. I see his mind. I see his every intent! Yes, I see him turning the lightsaber to strike true. And now, foolish child, he ignites it, and kills his true enemy!"

Supreme Leader Snoke (born circa 19 BBY on Exegol; dies 34 ABY on the Supremacy in the Crait system) is a major antagonist in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, he appears as the overarching antagonist of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, then the secondary antagonist of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and the posthumous antagonist of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. He was the supreme leader of the First Order before being killed and succeeded by Kylo Ren.

Why He Was Beaten

  1. He's not a threatening villain in the Last Jedi.
  2. His characterization is inconsistent: In The Force Awakens, he was noticeably "gray" (stoic, fair toward his henchmen, and respectful of his enemies). But in The Last Jedi, he's suddenly a standard villain (bombastic, an abusive boss, and suicidally arrogant).
  3. The inconsistency where he was a gigantic dark lord in The Force Awakens, but was reduced to a smaller size in The Last Jedi for an unexplained reason.
  4. He barely even fights against Rey.
  5. His gold robes look ridiculous and not even more Sith-like.
  6. He dies anti-climatically by Kylo Ren.
  7. The explanation of him being a Palpatine clone, who was supposed to turn Rey to the dark side conflicts with his trying to get Kylo Ren to kill Rey.
    • It also contradicts the material stating he'd been around since before the Empire.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. He was decent and more tolerable in Force Awakens.
  2. Andy Serkis does a good job with the material he's given.
