The Star Wars franchise is the greatest sci-fi series in cinema history - yep, I said it - and it's one likewise laced with so many legendary characters.

Whether looking at George Lucas' original Star Wars trilogy, the trio of prequel offerings, or the more recent sequel trilogy, these films are full of some of the biggest and best characters ever committed to the silver screen. Whether that's a heroic Jedi, a nefarious Sith, a loveable scoundrel, a wookiee, or even a spunky R2 unit, the main players of the greater Star Wars franchise offer up something for everyone.

That said, Star Wars isn't simply all about those big hitters, for the franchise has a wide variety of supporting players and minor characters who help to fully flesh out this galaxy far, far away. And it's with these smaller names that the focus will be here.

Taking a look across the slew of colourful characters seen throughout the Star Wars franchise, then, here are ten fantastic minor characters who managed to live long in the memory, despite spending only one solitary scene on our screens.

10. FN-2199 - The Force Awakens

Stormtroopers so often are depicted as being absolutely awful at their jobs. From the opening moments of 1977's Star Wars: A New Hope, it was soon established that these soldiers of the Empire make awful decisions and can't aim a blaster correctly.

In the more recent sequel trilogy we have seen a slightly more competent stormtrooper shown, however, and one of the most badass of the bunch was The Force Awakens' FN-2199.

Making a lasting impression during his one major moment on screen, audiences got to see FN-2199 - nicknamed TR-8R and Nines amongst Star Wars fans - angrily turn his attention towards John Boyega's Finn. Opting to discard his own his blaster and shield, FN-2199 confronts the former friend and colleague who he now labels a traitor.

Not only does FN-2199 set his sights on the lightsaber-wielding Fin, but he actually gets the better of his rival. Unfortunately for FN-2199, though, he was taken out just as he was about to finish off Finn, courtesy of a bowcaster-wielding Han Solo.
