Top Ten Greatest Dark Lords of the SithWithin this list you shall see MY, note I said MY, top ten GREATEST Dark Lords of the Sith. Enjoy!
The Top Ten
Honestly he is the best because he has such a rich story behind him with him practically living two lives and even though being corrupted he was eventually turned to the light side (even though it was because the Jedi council just wanted to exploit his amazing force powers). He went to turn bastila from the dark to the light and ended up getting into a relationship with her. He ends up killing his former apprentice and saving the universe from the power of the star forge.
This was a REALLY hard choice but Darth Revan makes second on the list. Though he did discover the Star Forge, found his own Sith Empire, slay Mandalore the Ultimate in single combat, challenge the Sith Emperor twice and survive, create his own holocron, technically found the Rule of Two, build HK-47, defeat his former apprentice and best friend Darth Malak, nearly destroy the Galactic Republic and restrain Darth Vitiate via a force bond he ultimately failed in his chief goal of destroying Vitiate, never defeating the Emperor in either of their confrontations. - Razgriz577
This weapon of mass destruction found the Star Forge, defeated Mandalore in single combat, founded a new Sith order, built the source of meatbag mayhem, and even tried to permanently kill Vitiate.
Darth Vitiate, the pimp of pimps and the john of johns, is first for the following reasons. One, he seized complete control of the minds of Revan and Malak using only the Force. Two, he single-handedly brainwashed 8,000 Sith Lords so as to use them for his ritual as well as destroyed his entire homeworld of Nathema/Medriaas becoming immortal in the process (something that Palpatine could NEVER do). Three, he rebuilt the original Sith Empire after its defeat in the Great Hyperspace War as well as made the Imperial War Machine powerful enough to once again challenge the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Order for total domination of the galaxy, starting the Second Great Galactic War as a result. Four, Vitiate demolished Darth Lokess as well as all of her Dark Council counterparts with just a single flash of Dark Side energy (another thing that slut Sidious couldn't do). Five, he killed his foster father with just a thought as well as tortured his mother for months with the Force and ...more - Razgriz577
Darth Bane is third because he tricked Lord Kaan as well as the rest of the Brotherhood of Darkness into activating the Thought Bomb Ritual (destroying all life, including themselves on the planet Ruusan) so as to rebuild the Sith Order from the shadows, discovered the ancient Sith holocron of Darth Revan, founded the Rule of Two, anointed Darth Zannah as his apprentice, created orbalisk armor that was literally impenetrable to all forces of nature and man, recovered the ancient Sith holocron of Darth Andeddu the Immortal God-King of Prakith, constructed his own holocron and discovered essence transfer. He would be slain by Darth Zannah both physically and mentally. - Razgriz577
He was willing to do everything to see the dark side succeed including killing his love and committing treason. If he had succeeded the Sith would have won. He was also a tank in combat able to kill jedi with simply force lightning.
Darth Malgus was the Sith Lord that personally commanded the attack on the Jedi Temple during the Sacking of Coruscant, assisted Darth Vindican in the reconstituted Sith Empire's successful campaign to reclaim Korriban, headed a massive Sith invasion of Alderaan that ultimately failed, slew Cao Den Darach, murdered Ven Zallow, betrayed the Empire after the death of Darth Vitiate and founded the New Empire by using the recently captured Rakatan Foundry to build an immense army of extermination droids and a seemingly invincible stealth armada, which makes him 4th place on the list. His New Empire is eventually destroyed by an Imperial strike team that would also kill him. - Razgriz577
This is the only guy that was actually in the movies,the thing that made Star Wars famous.
Darth Malak was the former apprentice and best friend of Darth Revan, Dark Lord of the Sith, ruler of the Sith Empire (Jedi Civil War era), master of Darth Bandon and master of the Star Forge. Though there is no questioning his skills and abilities Malak was a major hothead that lacked the finesse and intellect to maintain his empire, instead relying on brute force and savagery. These traits would ultimately cost him his empire, the Star Forge and his life, which is why he makes 5th place on my list. - Razgriz577
I actually think he should be higher. He was smart. He was smart enough to know that the sith couldn't over power the republic. Most sith just charged into battle for glory or hunger or power and a lot of them thought that they were invincible.
Marka Ragnos was Dark Lord of the Sith that took the throne of the original Sith Empire after the untimely death of Tulak Hord. He would lead his empire into what became known as the Golden Age of the Sith. He would crush all enemies of the Empire, both foreign and domestic (aside from the Republic of course), expand the Empire's borders to its greatest extent, never be defeated or killed (he ruled the Empire until his natural death), strike fear into the hearts of his rivals and subjects, anoint Darth Vitiate as an official Sith Lord and survive as a Force ghost long after the Battle of Endor. However, his achievements are nothing compared to the Top 5 as he isolated the Empire due to the fact that he knew it wasn't strong enough to fight the Republic in a full-scale war; thus he is 6th place. - Razgriz577
Okay,I'll tell you the whole story of Darth Maul after he was "Killed".He got some robotic legs,took over the Death Watch by killing Pre Vizzla,killed Obi Wans lover,fought Darth Sideous and almost won,but he didn't die.I know,impressive.
Tulak Hord was a Dark Lord of the Sith that seized power after the death of Ajunta Pall, the first Dark Lord of the Sith in galactic history. He would greatly expand the Empire's borders, develop skills with the lightsaber that would come to mark him as the greatest lightsaber duelist in galactic history, acquire abilities in the Force that all but dwarfed the powers of all Force-adepts combined (possibly making him the most powerful Sith Lord in Sith and possibly galactic history), appoint Khem Val and Aloysius Kallig as his two most trusted generals, discover essence transfer and never face defeat. However, he was literally stabbed in the back by his own apprentice and as with Marka Ragnos, failed to confront the Galactic Republic. This is why he is 7th place on the list. - Razgriz577
Exar Kun was the Dark Lord of the Sith that started the Great Sith Wars against the Galactic Republic. He would come to anoint Ulic Qel-Droma as his apprentice, conquer large portions of the galaxy, slay his former master Vodo Siosk-Baas during the rescue of Ulic Qel-Droma on Coruscant, be the first to use a double-bladed lightsaber, destroy the spirit of Freedon Nadd once and for all and wipe out the Massassi race. But he failed to actually defeat the Republic and the Jedi in the Great Sith Wars thanks in part to the betrayal of Ulic Qel-Droma on Yavin IV and sheer arrogance on his part. He would also be slain by the Jedi first by a Wall of Light and later by the spirit of Vodo Siosk-Baas himself. Thus he makes 8th place. - Razgriz577
Trained Darth Sidious until Darth Sidious killed him.
14? Seriously? He's the most badass sith ever. He used the force to feed off of entire PLANETS. His lightsaber hilt also looks awesome.
"He is a wound in the Force, more presence than flesh, and in his wake life dies… sacrificing itself to his hunger."
Naga Sadow was a Dark Lord of the Sith that seized the Imperial throne after the death of Marka Ragnos. He had the power to literally and completely control solar activity in space. He also launched the Great Hyperspace War against the Galactic Republic, created the Massassi race on Yavin IV, slew Ludo Kressh during a space battle above Korriban and tutored Freedon Nadd in the ways of the Dark Side of the Force. However, he did lead the original Sith Empire to its destruction due to his foolish and arrogant belief that his armies were strong enough to challenge the might of the Republic and Jedi, indirectly cause the Sith Holocaust by the Jedi Order and was killed by Freedon Nadd due to his own insecurity. Thus he makes 9th place on the list. - Razgriz577
Better than maul for Ssurrre
