    Any other theme can also be mentioned. These are all the canon themes written by John Williams.

    personally my favorite is, well, um..... I can’t choose. I love them all. They all represent their character(s) well. Im curious to see how ya’ll are gonna rank them.

    You can vote and rank if you wish. Enjoy!

    I could decide. I love all of these themes. So to answer my own poll, I closed my eyes and picked the Droid Army Theme which is pretty good.

    by the way, I would put all of the songs and their links here, but that would take too long and people answering this would know the themes.

    Loads of great themes. Did the same like you and voted immediately without thinking. The Force theme is cult.

    Luke Skywalker's theme is actually called 'Binary Sunset'. People often mixed it up with 'Tales of a Jedi Knight' / 'Learn about the Force', which is the actual force theme.

    So my main vote goes for Luke Skywalker, Binary Sunset.

    My second vote goes to Rey (yet I picked it in the poll). I also love the Droid Invasion theme.

    I voted Yoda for a number of reasons. It's among my favorites, but some other great choices are simply missing. Where's Leia or Luke & Leia, for instance? Han Solo and the Princess? Across the Stars?

    I don't even recall what Dooku's theme or a Clone theme is supposed to be, tbh. And while I don't want to be a know-it-all, the Force theme is technically Obi-Wan's theme, and Luke's theme is the Star Wars main title.

    Voted for Binary Sunset (or Luke's theme)

    Rey's theme and The Imperial March (Vader's theme or Empire's theme?) are one of my favorites too.

    Dooku and Obi-Wan's theme I don't really know what they sound.

    Yep. Thanks for adding this @NinjaRen. The binary sunset then.

    Ah yes, I know. Binary Sunset is its name, but I decoded to call it Luke Skywalker theme because I was talking about character or characters themes. But I know it is call binary sunset

    Ok, I only have so much space my guy in the poll, ok? If you have a different opinion its cool if you put it down here. I know of these themes. If you don’t know the themes, you can look them up if you wish.
    --- Double Post Merged, Aug 2, 2020 ---
    Empire Theme and Imperial March are the SAME THING. I put theme because the thread was Character THEMES.

    Even though Rey is far from being my favorite character, her theme is incredible! Definitely has my vote.

    In my opinion, Qi’ra’s theme was the best single character theme in Star Wars. That was the sweeping 30s’ish-space-drama song I wish the ST was filled with. It was the first time I heard a piano in a Star Wars film (correct me if I’m wrong,) and the transition from the “sweet” melody to the menacing evil version when Maul arrived was outstanding on composer John Powell’s part.

    Luke Skywalker's, followed closely by Rey and Kylo Ren's, as a personal opinion, although all of the music is interesting, imo. Kylo Ren's is something special, since he has a "wannabe" motif and also a "power motif", so there's some dynamic quality to it.

    Binary Sunset (Luke’s theme) is just so iconic, I feel like it’s an obvious winner. But Rey’s Theme and Princess Leia’s Theme are right up there with it.

    I voted for Luke Skywalker’s theme, but Binary Sunset/the Force theme and the Imperial March are all so iconic that most of the other options don’t stand a chance from my point of view.

    Besides the Original Trilogy, my favorite theme from the films is Kylo Ren’s. The motif gets louder and more intense as it goes on, which really fits his growing rage and instability. I was just rewatching The Rise of Skywalker the other night and the scene where Kylo walks away from his wrecked TIE Whisper with his theme playing full blast was so incredibly awesome.

    I also LOVE how a higher and more desperate version of Kylo’s theme was used for the scenes with Ben Solo in TROS. It’s honestly probably my favorite detail of that whole movie.

    Outside of the films entirely, I love Ahsoka Tano’s theme. It just fits her character so well and whenever it’s used, it perfectly captures the feel of whatever is happening on screen. It was used in a lot of great ways during the new season of The Clone Wars. The way it was used during that scene where Ahsoka tries to stop Maul from fleeing in the shuttle before going to the Force theme was so beautiful.

    I really hope we hear a Ludwig Goransson version of her theme when she shows up in Mando Season 2!

    Samuel Kim has a great video of her theme right here:

    Imperial March theme (Darth Vader). The memory of an entire cinema completely quiet in suspense as a large shadow is cast over several Star Destroyers.
    The 80s had several horror stars (Leatherface, Jason, Freddy, Myers) yet Vader in TESB was up there w/ the best of them.

    Cheers, KH
