yay -R $
that removes only one package, i would like to remove all aur packages or at least get a list so i can remove them one by one

Did you try it? Obviously not.

[elloquin@elloquin-elloquin ~]$ yay -R $(pacman -Qmq)
[sudo] password for elloquin: 
checking dependencies...

Packages (4) chromium-widevine-1:4.10.1679.0-1  gamemode-1.5.1-2  plank-git-0.11.89.r5.20c16a0-1  timeshift-20.03-1

Total Removed Size:  13.83 MiB

:: Do you want to remove these packages? [Y/n] 

didn’t realize the pacman part needed to be included

Are you still sure you want to take this action?

If you want to remove the dependencies as well you can add -s to -R. And if the command result in an error it probably means that one or more packages depend on something you want to remove. So you can add -t to pacman part ensuring that only not required packages will be removed. So, it will look like this:
yay -Rs $(pacman -Qmtq)
