Top 10 Greatest Jedi

The Top TenXW

1Obi-Wan

Yoda isn't number one. I'd have to rate it like this:

1. ) Obi-Wan: Brave and passionate Jedi, basically trained Luke as a ghost and defeated Anakin's anger and hate. Also gave us one of the most passionate scenes ever, on Mustafar. Beat a guy wielding FOUR LIGHTSABERS!
2. ) Luke Skywalker: The only Jedi ever to turn a Sith Lord back to the light side of the force.
3. ) Mace Windu: Defeated Darth Sidious and would have killed him without Anakin.
4. ) Yoda: Was winning fight with Sidious until the two of them blasted backwards. Also you could see Sidious was afraid of him.
5. ) Qui-Gon: He may not have been the greatest at combat (debatable though, because Maul won by cheating) but he was very wise, and shaped the series. Trained Obi-Wan Kenobi, and discovered Anakin Skywalker, which led to the creation of Luke Skywalker. Qui-Gon is awesome.

Well since Luke was the actual person who did 2.), then Luke should be the best. - jmtoptens

Best Jedi ever, the only Jedi master who fought against siths, troops, tanks, everything and gave shape to the destiny of the galaxy with sword and blaster (defeating both "the trade federation and the empire). He was also the master of many great jedis like Anakin and Luke, He defeated Anakin, darth maul and general Grevious in combat and more.. He guided Luke to destroy the death star from beyond the force... He is by far the most influential character of the star wars saga..

Ben kenobi chose to die... When and how

As Anakin described him, he's as wise as master yoda and as powerful as master windu. Aside from yoda he was the only Jedi to survive the clone trooper attack. He beat both the great Jedi murderer, general grievous (great being the one that fought 6 Jedi at once), as well as the Sith Lord/assassin Darth maul. He trained both the Jedi that brought balance to the force and went out on his own terms to successfully continue his training of Luke and continue down the path of bringing balance to the force. No Jedi can compare

If obi wan and yoda fought yoda would win same with mace windu

2YodaYoda is a fictional character in the Star Wars space opera franchise created by George Lucas, first appearing in the 1980 film The Empire Strikes Back.

Even sidious try to run away of yoda.

A short green guy with weird ears who talks funny. what's not to like

"Do or do not, there is no try" - qaz9999

Yoda makes Sidious scared as hell in one short fight through a basic force push.
Trained practically everyone in the Jedi Order for the past hundred years due to his old age. No him, none of the people below can even be qualified to be on this list.
He is a Jedi who never fell to the Dark Side even after hundreds of years whereas Anakin thought he could save Padme and fell to the Dark Side thanks to Sidious.
Only weakness of Yoda - Force technique too slow but very powerful due to him being a consular and not requiring it to be quick and effective.

You guys realize Yoda is the ruler of the Jedi right? - TristGamer

3Anakin Skywalker

He killed count dooku with ease once he was a Jedi. While obi-wan would have been killed by dooku if it wasn't for anakin. Obi-wan may have defeated anakin but it was once he was darth vader, and you can tell at that time anakin/darth vader didn't have a clear mind, and was in conflict with himself.. Which probably kept him from fighting at his full potential.

If I have to say who is the powerful jedi of star wars, I say Anakin Skywalker. He is the chosen one; born from the force. He will bring balance in the force. Sure many jedi have great ability, like Kenobi, Yoda, Windu, Revan, ecc... But only anakin bring balance in the force, and he is the only jedi who became a ghost of force without learning the power from Qui-Gon Jinn (yoda and Kenobi have to learn this power). Nothing more to say!

Obi wan only 'defeated' anakin because of a stupid move he did. For gods sake he died at 44! If he had lived longer and learned longer (and not have ended up in a suite).. Just imagine the possibilities. He could have been the greatest force user ever.

Anakin started to turn to the dark side when he killed Dooku

4Luke SkywalkerLuke Skywalker is a fictional character appearing as the central protagonist of the original film trilogy, and as a supporting character in the sequel trilogy of the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas.

Luke has the most character development on this list. He goes from a complaining teen to a powerful, mature, and flat out awesome young man. He's the guy you just want to win. The power of his father, the wisdom of Yoda and Obi wan, and the compassion of Padame. Luke is just flat out incredible. All the stuff he has done at such a young age. He defeated his all powerful father, and later, the most powerful sith to EVER LIVE. He blew up the Death Star at age 18, and becomes the most powerful force user of all time.

I agree that there are better Jedi on this list, but you really have to credit Luke with restoring the Jedi Order that had fallen under the leadership of those above. If he had turned to the dark side, only one person (Leia) would have a shot at stopping him. Instead, he chose not to strike down his father and now the Sith are no more.

He was the son of the chosen one! And after the Galactic Civil War, he became the most powerful Jedi Master ever!

He was my hero as a kid and still is

5Mace WinduMace Windu is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, portrayed by actor Samuel L. Jackson in the prequel films.

Mace windu is probably the most powerful, we never see him did, just fall off the edge of the building. Obi wan also says to anakin "if you practiced your saber skills as muh as your flying, you would match even mace windu " or something like that. This suggests that mace windu has the best saber skills.

Yes, I agree, that Mace Windu is a strong jedi. His lightsaber skills are incredible, and he even beat Darth Sidious, who is probably the most powerful sith lord ever (no one knew, that he was the sith lord, but he manipulated anakin (! For his own schemes). Even Yoda (who is - for me - the most poweful jedi) couldn't beat him unanimous

Mace Windu has won against Darth Sidious and can channel rage against the sith he can beat almost any sith because they use rage, hate and fear

I like him but the image on the left looks stupid.

6Qui-Gon JinnQui-Gon Jinn is a fictional character in the Star Wars saga, portrayed by Liam Neeson and is one of the main protagonists in the 1999 film Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.

Without Jinn, there would be no redemption of Anakin and there would be no balance in the force. Jinn taught Yoda and Obi how to become force ghosts. Without Luke having communication with Ben's ghost, his training would never be and he was the only one strong enough to face Vader. The empire would have crushed the rebellion with Sidious and Vader and the galaxy would be lost.

Truly the most peaceful of the jedi and even though he disagreed with the council many times. He was right in believing that Anakin was the chosen one. He was also the first jedi in history to become one with the force. The other jedi are skillful like Yoda and Kenobi but none had the same connection to the force as Qui-gon.

He found the greatness in Anakin, trained one of the greatest Jedi of all time obi wan kenobi, if it weren't for him the sega won't be the same!

He got killed by a guy who threw himself in a hole

7Kit Fisto

He's a Jedi Master on the Council who actually has a good sense of humor. He can breathe underwater, and a really fast swimmer. By the way, he gets to save Aayla's life and won her heart!

He is one of the only Jedi to have mastered type one of lightsaber arts, and his skills as an amphibious species is awesome.

The only other jedi apart from Obi-Wan Kenobi to come anywhere close to defeating General Grievous. Plus, he later gets to use two lightsabers and has that awesome smile! It's really too bad that we never got to see his true fighting talent so much in the actual movie series. He may not be as important or as powerful as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, or Mace Windu, but he'll go down in jedi history none the less, as the guy that "fought with a smile".

Deserving spot great character and one of the orders greatest dualists during the clone wars

8Plo Koon

All around one of the greatest Jedi as he was smart and cunning skillful in the force as he was the most notable example of the few Jedi who could use force lighting (not true force lighting but emerald lighting as it was dubbed by him I believe) and he was a accomplished Jedi battle master and one of the finest duelists to live

He's the coolest Jedi ever. I really don't like how he died thought. I always wanted a figure of him. Yoda is hilarious. So I say he should number two. All I can say

He is the a really powerful jedi. He only lost to the clones because the shot him down when he didn't notice

If I were in Star Wars, he would be my master!

10Revan

He mastered the ways of the light side of the force, until the only thing to learn was how to leave the Jedi. Tired of their sissying around, he left the order to fight the Mandalorians (Space Huns), then became a Sith, mastering the dark Side and the Star Forge, a great and powerful dark side nexus. He then very nearly destroyed the old republic and the Jedi order, until he was betrayed by his apprentice (he also started the rule of two). He was then taken back to the light and retrained as a Jedi, then refaced with the power of the dark side, and in full knowledge of both sides, rejected the dark, redeemed himself and his lover, Bastilla, defeated Darth malek, now a master, destroyed the Star Forge and rebalanced the force thousands of years before Anakin was even conceved.

Revan's only weakness was blindness towards his trusted companions goals, had he not been betrayed he would have ruled the galaxy and been the most powerful leader ever to lead the sith and the republic.

Revan's legacy is the greatest of all Jedi/Sith, embodied in both Darth Bane's 'Rule of Two' and the continued survival of the Republic itself.

He's a Sith and a jedi

The Contenders

11Count Dooku

He was trained by Yoda and before turning bad trained qui Gon. He was when he was good a powerful jedi, even if only referenced in the movies. I think he counts.

He is stupid he should get out of this galaxy

As a Jedi and a sith he was equally one of the greatest dualists ever

Yo Count Dooku is a sith lord every Star Wars movie,

12Shaak Ti

She's wise and powerful, and she can control the environment of planet felucia with her force power! She's one of the best female jedi ever!

Looks great and fights awesomely.

Shaak Ti is a very respected Jedi Master. She is a very powerful Force-user and an incredibly skilled lightsaber combatant. She is a master of form II Makashi, and form V Shien/Djem-so.

13Satele Shan

Master at Battle Meditation, Master at telekinesis Master at Absorbing even a lightsaber blade from a sith master, Trained in every saber form and Jedi master and council leader during the fall of Vititate, responsible for the discovery of tython and the descendant of both Bastilla shan and Revan.

Battle Meditation, EXTREMELY powerful force wave enough to bring an entire mountain down on Darth Malgus, and SUPREME saber skills. Before battling Malgus she annihilated SEVERAL sith by "dancing" in a line wiping them all out in just a few seconds. She was a no-nonsense beast among Jedi!

Satele Shan was a master of battle meditation. She was also a master of the Force technique Tou-Te-Menaz, or the ability to absorb things like a lightsaber blade or Force lightning. She was also very wise, eventually becoming Grand Master of the Jedi Order.

15Ahsoka Tano

Better than most of the jedi in the order. She knew staying with the order would have hurt her more than it would help her, and she was able to find a greater strength without them and act as a 'fulcrum" for the rebellion. Definitely top 10 material.

Great jedi for her young age, has a great potential as a leader as she is able to keep her cool and think outside the box, hope we see her more in Star Wars: Rebels.

Wasn't she the idiot who ended up dying during the animated Clone Wars T.V. show?

#Worst Jedi ever

16Galen Marek

He beat his own master Darth Vader, then he took out the emperor himself and spared his life, why he even brought down a star destroyer by just using the force! He isn't the best but he deserves a spot in the top 10.

He is not a Jedi, but his clone is. He has amazing force abilities and he should be a lot more places up. He can take on anybody ahead of him in this line. He will make a great fight with anybody. He took on darth Vader and won he should be voted for

100% yes the only person to surpass him would be Bane

He was a work of fiction within fiction

17Leia Organa SoloPrincess Leia Organa, later known as General Leia Organa, is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed in films by Carrie Fisher.

Who says Princess Leia is a Jedi she doesn't have a lightsaber only a gun.

Leia ain't a Jedi. She can use the force, but ain't a jedi - Arm_n_Hammer

18Anakin Solo

Uhh... This awesome dude should be way above Ahsoka Tano. I can't even believe that. Anakin Solo was awesome, he just didn't get a chance to grow up and kick ass.

It's actually Ben Solo. Din't you hear Han Solo shout "BEN! "?

I hate him for the following reasons:
1) He got defeated by a Jedi who's never been trained
2) He does not use the force
3) He killed his own father
4) He is very weak, even though he has a cool lightsaber

19Jaina Solo

Jaina's pretty cool, but probably could only go up a few places.

20Hero of Tython

He's clearly the best. People just favour the movies for some reason. The sith emperor could destroy worlds and was clearly the greatest sith ever. He defeated revan using only his mind and yet the hero of tython rose to the challange to kill him and save the galaxy and universe from being destroyed by the emperor

Destroyed the sith emperor, Vitiate.
