Top 10 Star Wars Duos

Two can be stronger than one, and I'm celebrating that by counting down my top 10 Star Wars duos.

10. Kanan Jarrus & Hera Syndulla
Spectre 1 and Spectre 2. They're good leaders of the rebel faction Star Wars Rebels showcases, and work well with each other and the rest of the rebel team.

9. Luke Skywalker & R2-D2
A boy and his faithful beeping astromech. Luke flies with R2 in his X-wing, R2 helped show where Luke was hiding in The Force Awakens, R2 retrieved Luke's lamp while Yoda beat the droid (I'll take questions later).

8. Finn & Poe Dameron
They seemed like best friends the minute Finn rescued Poe in The Force Awakens. Poe even let Finn keep his jacket, and that shows they are truly friends.

7. Chirrut Imwe & Baze Malbus
Two friends played by two Chinese actors who are already friends. They were helpful members of the Rogue One team, but like the rest of the team, gave their lives to save the Death Star plans.

6. Lando Calrissian & Lobot
Lando really couldn't do without Lobot. Lobot is forever connected to the Cloud City central computer and Lando relies on him for communication throughout Cloud City.

5. Darth Vader & Emperor Palpatine
This evil pair is only more evil because both of its members want to destroy the other...which really complicates things. But Palpatine and Vader still show good traits of a good pairing.

4. Anakin Skywalker & Padme Amidala
The forbidden lovers. Anakin and Padme share a bond that few lovers can share. Anakin protected Padme and fell to the dark side to protect her. Padme is a good shot with a blaster and Anakin is a great lightsaber duelist and pilot.

3. Qui-Gon Jinn & Obi-Wan Kenobi
Master and Padawan. Of all the Master and Padawan pairs in Star Wars, this is my favorite. Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan are both skilled with a lightsaber, and when they fight together, as seen at the end of The Phantom Menace, that just shows why Episode I is my favorite of the prequels. Comments are disabled, so you can't voice your disapproval.

2. Han Solo & Chewbacca
"Chewie, we're home," Han tells Chewbacca when they return to the Falcon in The Force Awakens. Chewbacca and Han are an incredible team, one muscular, the other a skilled pilot and shot. These two have been together for so long, and it will be hard for Chewbacca to go on without Han. [SPOILER: Han dies in The Force Awakens]

1. C-3PO & R2-D2
Two droids that argue, bicker, and hit each other with their metallic parts, C-3PO and R2-D2 are still the best of friends. C-3PO constantly worries, while R2-D2 is a faithful little beeper. These two are in it to the end, they have seen all eras of Star Wars, and it's unlikely one will ever lose the other.
