Top 10 Greatest Jedi
The Top Ten
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
Killed a Sith Lord at the age of 57, beat Anakin Skywalker and helped guide Luke, the best - O0812528V 47 Comments
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.
Yoda is way better than Obi-Wan. Yoda should be #1.V 46 Comments
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!
He is the chosen one. I like Yoda as much as I like him. He's super cute as a boy. He won a podrace as a human, killed Darth Tyranus, the emperor, and cut off Luke's am which scared the galaxy. He soon became the darkest sith of all time. He then filled in his role as a jedi, and showed that he was the true jedi chosen one.
He killed Darth Sidious and sadly died in the process but had he met his full potential he would have destroyed him the way he beat Dooku with ease.V 23 Comments
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.
Luke is my favourite jedi. There are not many people who survived battle with Darth Vader and did not die. And even if they did, the didn't return to second round. Luke did it. He fought Vader twice and once was victorious. He brought him back to light and saved the galaxy. In legends, he became the MOST powerful jedi ever. And of course, his suit and lightsaber from episode 6. He should be first.
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.

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
Mace Windu did Vapad training. He is the best. He only lost because he didn't know Anakin was on the darkside and trusted him. he could defeat Palpatine!V 30 Comments
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!
Disagreed with the council on many occasions and all for the right reasons. He did what he felt was right no matter what other jedi thought, but was still a Jedi.V 17 Comments
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".
Should be top 3V 26 Comments
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 is the a really powerful jedi. He only lost to the clones because the shot him down when he didn't notice
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
Plo Koon gains well deserving respect, there are much in media and discs to commemorate Jedi Master Plo of the Rebel Republic. It is a fine character to game with as well despite being not so famous the Mon Calimari does catch attention now and so often. Not bad of an acceptable holocron archives of the good or light side team as they prove in the Clone Wars. - iliescuV 22 Comments
Greatest death scene in star wars. Has one of the highest seats on the council behind only Yoda, Mace and Plo koon. Def underrated
In the last scene before he dies he did pretty good
Wow you need a head cut
He is awesome he totally amazing!V 5 Comments
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.
good infoV 12 Comments
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.
As a Jedi and a sith he was equally one of the greatest dualists ever
He shouldn't be in this list... He became a sith later... What was the use of becoming a jedi then?
Yo Count Dooku is a sith lord every Star Wars movie,V 5 Comments
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.V 4 Comments
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.
Ahsoka Tano is amazing.
Hot too hotV 8 Comments
She has defeated aurora sing in battle she has fought grievous n is highly skilled with the force n with a light saber she has went to the dark side n came back not to mention she saved vos from the dark side too she was also for a short time before order66 became a Jedi master
She is a good Jedi,why is she only 14th?
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.V 2 Comments
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 fictionV 5 Comments
Son of Han and Leia.
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.
Who IS THAT PERSON?
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
Jaina's pretty cool, but probably could only go up a few places.V 1 Comment
Speculation; in episode 8 Luke has trained Rey.
She's only a scavenger who has the map of Luke Skywalker. She was scared of the lightsaber at first but she was very strong at defeating Kylo Ren, even she was not trained.
Rey hasn't been taught how to use it. But in the final battle I was shocked she knew how to use it and killed Kylo Ren. I bet on episode 8 she's going to have a lightsaber.
Rey should be 12th place SHE WAS LITERALlY TRAINED BY
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.V 3 Comments
Smart jedi master, one of the hedi council's leading members for decades, intuitive, her force powers are considerable- being able to achieve basic force pushes, leaps, bounds, kicks as well as being agile. she's a skilled pilot and has trained siri tachi, who was herself very powerful.
She has fought many foes, bested bounty hunters like jenna zan arbor and survived skirmishes with general grievous.
Her fighting style is shien- like fellow master plo koon's, which is very endurance-based but often she holds her weapon in a reverse one hand grip for better effect. she is also a capable unarmed combatant.
Gallia is a well known and respected master but she isn't as strong as shaak ti or depa billaba, so I would rate her as number 7 or 8.
Great great grandson of anakin great grandson of luke grandson of ben and son of kol skywalker and is the best jedi ever in my opinion. - con
Killed Darth Krayt, who assisted Luke against Abeloth; Best Healer ever
He survived near death twice and had his eye cut out by darth tyranus and still survived the great jedi purge
He was the leader of the jedi spy network. He successfully placed agents all throught the seperatists. He discovered the second sith lord (palpatine/darth sidious) but nobody believed him.
Wise Jedi. He sacrificed himself and saved the lives of millions. If it wasn't for him, the Jedi council would be no more. He was stabbed and wounded but still used the force to stop a weapon of mass destruction from destroying Courcant.
If you do some research on Poof you find out he saved an entire planet! He saved master yoda and tons of other jedi from dying! How great is that!V 1 Comment
She absorbs a deadly biological weapon to save many livesV 1 Comment
Jacen is number one of all time. He turned into Darth Caedus that should be in top 5 sith.V 1 Comment
Kyle Katarn is an excellent Jedi, his lightsaber skills are second to none in the time after ROTJ. He also managed to fight the conflict of the dark side within himself, whilst still managing to harness some of the powers of the dark side. - Reconkiwi
She should be number 18
Lol what?! Seriously? Adi Gallia and Rey above Depa Billaba?! what?!
Well, he did have huge courage when he attempted to defeat count dooku
Meh. he is quite brave
Are you kidding me he is like the weakest Jedi of all time every Jedi except him would beat jango fett even Barris offee would kick trebors but.
He puts up a good show at the jedi temple.
He does I suppose
A powerful and noteworthy Jedi Knight before falling to the Dark Side and Exar Kun, Ulic redeems himself before his death by teaching padawan Vima Sunrider, daughter of his former lover Nomi Sunrider, the ways of the force.V 1 Comment
Sucks! Finn is the worst Jedi of all time. Why did Maz even give him the lightsaber.V 3 Comments
Defeated 3 insanely powerful Sith Lords including Nihilus who can eat whole planets.
Cool and kind of funny, he helped Obi-Wan track down Cad Bane! He was in the Clone Wars. He sadly is not very well known.
The greatest tracker ever he trained with Obi-wan and even survived the great jedi purge then before that trained aayla secura as his padawan need I say more
He dueled Mace Windu and drew him. After he revealed his skill in Vaapad.V 1 Comment
One of his apprentices were Yoda so if you think Yoda is so awesome he had to start somewhere!
N kata del gormo trained yoda he's #1 worthy
According to legend he was Yoda's Master - micahisthebestV 1 Comment
How is Luminara here when Zett Jukassa and Nahdar Vebb are above her. She would woop there asses. Not to mention Zett is a youngling!
Mace Windu's Master, Survived Great Jedi Purge, Saved Remnants of New Jedi Order in 137 ABY (After Battle of Yavin) by assisting Nat Skywalker in sacrificing their lives to scatter the One Sith Fleet
He just will not die; Galactic Trimvirate after Sith-Imperial War, Survived Great Jedi Purge, one of the few jedi to survive Grievous
Not a Great Jedi, but he performed possibly the best feat in the Star Wars Mythos by defeating 10, 000 Vong at the World-Brain and a Vong Tank-Beast before dying.
He is a uses ambush. a key to attack
Had to be killed by a trick.
Looks amazingV 1 Comment
He is probably not called Bob but his name is unknown as the only evidence we have of him is in some sort of Lego set which I have forgotten. He will be found in the Lego Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary.V 1 Comment
