7. General Hux (Sequel Trilogy)

General Hux is like that one co-worker who just can’t seem to get it right, no matter how hard they try. We've all been there, it's alright. He's the guy in the shiny, over-the-top uniform, strutting around with an air of self-importance, but everyone knows he's just a few blaster shots short of a full arsenal. Hux tries so hard to be the menacing, fearsome leader but ends up coming across more like an angry cat hissing at a reflection – sort of fierce, but mostly just... funny. His attempts at villainy are like watching someone slip on a banana peel - you know you shouldn’t laugh, but it’s hard not to. He's got this grand vision of ruling the galaxy, but let's face it, he's more likely to rule a debate club than an empire.

Then there's his relationship with Kylo Ren – it's like watching two kids squabble over who gets to be the captain of the playground spaceship. Hux has this desperate need to prove himself, constantly trying to outdo Kylo Ren, but ends up looking like a spoiled little brat throwing a tantrum. His speeches are meant to be inspiring and terrifying, but they come off as a high school drama performance gone wrong. You almost feel bad for the guy – almost. It's like he studied "Villainy 101" from a textbook but only read the summary.

In the end, General Hux’s character is a mix of misplaced ambition, comic relief, and a walking lesson on how not to be an intimidating villain. He's still super entertaining though, for what it's worth.
