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.
Obi- Wan Kenobi is the fundamental Jedi of the Rise of the Empire Era. His main focus is on lightsaber combat, his most used force ability is the push. His main clothing is basically what all Jedi Guardians wear. He is a form 3 lightsaber combatant, focusing primarily on defense, but throwing in moves from shi-cho, Ataru, and Niman from time to time. His ability as a force user is average, and his lightsaber combat is good known as the greatest form 3 practitioner of the era, but compared to the best of the era he wasn't as a impressive with raw skill. His most impressive attribute was giving himself over to the force and putting his complete faith in it.He is my 9th favorite Jedi of his era, and I believe him to be the 18th strongest Jedi of his era.
Greatest Jedi of all time. He defeated General Grievous--who wielding 4, FOUR, lightsabers, Darth Maul, and Anakin. He trained Anakin and Luke, arguably two of the most powerful Jedis. Not to mention he's one of the very, very few Jedi who survived Order 66. Obi-Wan lived on Tatooine for about 20 years to watch over Luke and save the galaxy. How many Jedis--beside Yoda--could have that in their resume? Obi-Wan doesn't hide his feeling, but he doesn't stick by them completely all the time either. He makes the wisest decisions. Like Anakin said himself, "He's as wise as Master Yoda, and as powerful as Master Windu. Obi-Wan Kenobi is just plain Awesome!
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
He’s the grandmaster like how could he not be greater than obi wan. He’s far wiser than anakin cause he knew he couldn’t beat palps when palps had the high ground. He beat dooku in 40 seconds for comparison obi wan gets beaten by Dooku in 35 seconds even though Dooku even gave obi wan time to do better. Yoda trained 20,000 jedi. Obi wan trained 2 jedi, one is an absolute failure who could be convinced to defy the Jedi code and kill an unarmed old man just cause a politician said do it(anakin).
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.
Once I think it is a character that because he is the strongest of all the Jedi that is why he is my favorite character he has a miniature Seabury whatever you call it Green Blade and he is green and very tiny I like that kid there
Yoda is the Jedi, the only one who represents a Jedi is Obi-wan, he is wise and very strong in the force.He is a from 4 cobatant, Ataru, and even though I find his use of it to be impracticle, especially compared to sword fighting in reality, he has been noted to be the strongest lightsaber practitioner in the order.His use of the force is impressive, but very simple. He can levitate large objects, block prejectiles, and crush opponents however much of the time, and compared to the greatest users of the force, the time it takes him and the amount of concentration he needs is very high.He is my 8th favorite Jedi from his era, and the greatest force combatant of in the order rivaled only by Plageuous, and Sidious in the era.
Mace Windu is my favorite character in all of Star Wars! I wish they would make a movie or a series about him. He has amazing skills and he took down Jango Fett, and Palps. If it weren’t for Anakin, Mace would’ve defeated him!
Windo is considered the best Jedi fighting with a lightsaber. He was the most powerful saber combatant while Yoda was the most powerful with his force powers. Windo even invented his own lightsaber combat style that was so aggressive, it was dangerous for a Jedi to use. Other Jedi who utitlized his style ended up going over to the Dark side. Too bad they used old Samuel Jackson to play him on screen as you never truly saw his prowess with the saber on screen.
Mace Windu was second only to Yoda in the order at the time, and is arguably just as strong a lightsaber practitioner.
As a fighter he was extremely strong, being able to come to blows with Grevious, and Dooku on a few occasions. He practiced form 7 and made a variant to the usual form of this form Juyo, and named in Vapaad. This allowed him to fight Sidious on even terms, Sidious is superior in my opinion, and the reason Mace was able to hold his own,and win, was Vapaad allows him to harness the darkside energy running out of his opponent and deflect it back at them, so the harder Sidious fought the stronger he became.
Mace was strong in the force. Able to use it to increase his strength, and was so strong in Tuten Manis that he was able to make his fists as strong as steel and punch through battle droids. He was able to not just use force push, but the force crush ability and uses it on Grevious, crushing his ribs, and on many droids.
He is my 4th favorite Jedi ...more
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
Lol Darth Sidious defeated Mace Windu. You have it backwards. Darth Vader defeated Darth Sidious.
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.
Luke skywalker is the main protagonist from the original movie trilogy, and quickly became a strong Jedi in only 4 years, though I think this is mostly due to poor story telling, due to him only being strained for at least 6 months and most a year, while prodigies such as his father it took 10 years.He, similar to his father, was a Djem So practitioner and incorperated Seresu movements into his main style. His lightsaber skills are impressive for someone his age being able to defeat his father, Darth Vader, in their second duel, once again major plot holes. Luke would later go on to being the Grandmaster of the Jedi order and was able to defeat many darkside users, including, Lemiya, and his nephew Jacen Solo.As a force user he was able to become one with the force reached god status for a short time, and had pushes and pulls as strong and much faster the Yoda.He is the greates Jedi in his era, maybe ever, and is my 12th favorite of his era, mainly because his starting character is ...more
One of the worst Jedi. Thinks he rivals yoda as a swordman in episode 2 when he’s only been trained for 10 years and gets stomped by Dooku. He doesn’t learn to let go of everything he fears to lose yet all the other Jedi yoda ever taught were able to not let their personal feelings get in the way. He’s so arrogant. I get he beat an old man who was tired from force pushing obi wan but yoda disarmed sidious. He also was convinced to defy the Jedi code and kill an unarmed man just because a Sith Lord said dewit. He said, “I am more powerful than the emperor, I can overthrow him.” when anakin was far weaker than palpatine at the time. He also chokes padme even though he joined the dark side to save her. Even vader who according to most was more powerful than anakin struggled to kill old Ben who was far weaker than obi wan who was far weaker than Dooku who was far weaker than yoda. Then he says obi wan underestimates his power when he obviously underestimated obi wans power.
Agreed. Obi Wan suffered through losing his master, his love interest, (clonewars, Satine) and many of the Jedi he cared for yet he still didn't snap. However, a more powerful jedi who should be able to controll going to the dark side more snapped because his mom died and when he thought his wife was going to die. In the end, he killed Padmae anyway, and Dooku really wasn't that impressive for those who bring that up because he could have just captured him, but nooo. Go against the jedi order because of what the chancellor says. Talk about peer pressure. And besides, it was really Obi Wan who trained him and practically raised him, and then he just goes and stabs him in the back. Real strong jedi guys. Obi Wan even admits Anakin was like a brother to him, and Anakin just keeps trying to kill him.
Anakin Skywalker is known, unfortunately, as the chosen one and, when he was a jedi, was known as a rising star, and the hero of the Republic.He is a form 5 combatant, Djem So, meaning he uses power strikes mainly in his combat. He was known as a lightsaber prodigy, even as a padawan was considered one of the greatest lightsaber practitioners in the order. He has proven himself much stronger in this practice then his former Master Obi-wan and has defeated Count Dooku, who before he left the Order was only second to Yoda.As a force user he was very much average in the his usage of the force. Used mainly to amplify his strength, reflexes, and speed. His use of telekinetic abilities didn't mature until after he became Vader, and use pushes were average for a Jedi Knight of his caliber.He would be in my favorite 20 jedi of his era, and is in the top 5 combatants in the order at the time.
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!
Had he trained anakin, anakin would not have become darth vader. And dooku would not become a sith either. He knew the true jedi code. Had the council followed his way. Palpatines plan would have failed.
I have to say I don't like Jinn that much. Majorly due to him being a stereotypical Jedi of his day, and very much not having any real character development in his one movie.He was a strong lightsaber practioner and used form 4, so focused mainly on offense. He was noted as yodas greatest student, meaning his mastery of form 4. He was capable of defeating many opponents with barely any effort, and make Darth Maul go into a full defensive fight for the majority of their duel, however this may of worked out to Maul's plan.His abilities in the force were varied. From his use in the force mind trick, and force pushes to his use of the force to amplify is speed and endurance. Though these were varied they didn't seem to be impressive from any other Jedi in the order.During the Phantom Menace he would of been 3rd or 4th in terms of skill, but by the time of Revenge of the Sith would have been 7th to 9th in terms of skill.
I know most people don't read the books, but if you do. Read "cloak of deception" qui-gon discovers that the sith have returned and are plotting a massive war. He argues with the jedi council, but even the wise yoda fails to see the big picture.
Also darth plagiues states in his novel "darth plagiues" that qui-gon's ability to see the big picture could undo everything the sith have planned. Plagiues considered qui-gon jinn to be a bigger threat than yoda cause of his wisdom.
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.
He nearly killed General Grievous while battling Manga Gaurds, one of the last Jedi (besides) Mace Windew to not get killed by the Emperor, their is rumor that he could have survived because if you look closely, very closely, his body won't be on the ground in Avenge of the Sith, can breathe underwater, smiles even if he is about to die, awesome lightsaber, wise, survived the battle of Money Cala, survived the battle of Genosis, held his own against Emperor Palatine for a while, and he battled C3-P0/battle Droid. STAR WARS FANS- He isn't good because he was in the prequels. #KitFistoforbestJediever
While Kit fisto isn’t the most powerful Jedi he sure is my favourite character in all of Star Wars. Out of everyone on the council he is one of the only ones that is not corrupt. even in power levels he is in the top 10! He was able to defeat General Grevious without getting one of his tentacles chopped off. He has the most sense of humour out of anyone on the council and in my opinion he is the best Jedi and Star Wars character
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".
Kit Fisto was known for always having a smile on his face during combat, and was one of the more open Jedi.He skills with the lightsaber was great, being a form 1 master, his movements were very much chaotic in nature. He was the first council member added after the start of the Clone Wars, and would prove his skills throughout the conflict. He technically won his duel against the droid commander general Grevious, and was chosen by Mace Windu to accompany him against Sidious. Although I find the Sidous duel to be very dumb in the begining and to have been solely to boast Sidious's own prowess.He was a Jedi Councilor, so his application was on the force itself. His pushes and pulls were strong, and he could manipulate water with the force unlike any Jedi at this time. Though he wasn't that much stronger then any other jedi.He is my 6th favorite Jedi in the order during this era, and is, most likely, in the top 10 strongest combatants in the order during this period.
Plo Koon is a life time council member on the Jedi High council, and is known to have been good friends with Qui-gon jinn.He is best known in lightsaber abilities for fending off the sith assassin Asaj Ventress with a broken arm, and coming to even blows with the sith apprentice Savage Opress. He was an ace pilot only being out classed by Saessee Tinn, and Anakin Skywalker.His force abilites were average, but it should be noted he can survive in a void.He is my 7th favorite Jedi, and is likely a stronger combatant then Fisto so worthy of being in the top 10, maybe 6th or 5th in the order at the time.
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.
Plo Koon is a Kel-Dor Jedi Master. He was the padawan learner of Wookie Jedi Master Tyvokka. He joined the Jedi High Council in 44 BBY as a replacement for his fallen master in the Stark Hyperspace War. He was a good friend of Qui-Gon Ginn. He is a master of form V Shien/Djem-so. He has an ability to wield orange Force - Lightning, a very dark power, but he assured and proved to the High Council that he could control it and not fall to the dark side.
One of my favorite Jedi high council members. cool mask and great star fighter pilot. found Ashoka and was amazing in the clone wars. what's not to love.
Greatest death scene in star wars. Has one of the highest seats on the council behind only Yoda, Mace and Plo koon. Def underrated
The guy was able to defend himself before his death even though he didn’t know what was going on.
Survivor of the battle of geonosis.
One of the wisest Jedi of all time.
Cool as cool can get.
In the last scene before he dies he did pretty good
Jedi Council and was trained by Yoda.
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 shouldn't be in this list... He became a sith later... What was the use of becoming a jedi then?
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,
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, who SHOULD be in the top fives, is obviously one of the most powerful force users in the Star Wars universe. I’m not saying he is number one, as he did fall to the dark side, but he could definitely beat many characters that people idolize as we speak. For instance, Revan realized the Jedi Order was not the way to continue, so he left it and eventually came in hands with the Sith, where he started the rule of two and mastered basically every Sith secret on existence. Then, he was brainwashed by the Jedi and, now fully experienced in both sides of the force, he met Bastilla Shan (I’m not going into details on that), DESTROYED Darth Malak, another powerful force user, and therefore became a legend on his own time.
Darth Revan is the best, HANDS DOWN! Who do you think about when I talk about a Jedi who killed countless Mandalorians/Sith/Jedi/tusken raiders/Got the point yet? When I talk about this Jedi, you'd better be thinking about Revan, because he's the guy who practically whopped Darth Vitiate. For more info on what I think about this Jedi, look for what I said about him in the Top 10 Sith list. (Both Jedi and Sith entries have the same sentence starting it. [The sentence is-Darth Revan is the best, HANDS DOWN! ] )
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.
She is clearly the best Jedi she is my favorite character and Jedi she is the best most amazing strongest wisest kindest Jedi ever!
Unlike with most jedi, we got to see ahsoka grow up. We saw the rash, snippy padawan develop into jedi knight material. We saw her best and worst, and yet many still loved her, or else Disney wouldn't have brought her back in Rebels. Not only that, but she still has the potential to be a FORCE WEILDER! I'd say she dserves a spot on the list. Maybe not top 5, but definitely a 8 or 9.
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.
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
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.
Kinda liked the clone better... Still awesome though
100% yes the only person to surpass him would be Bane
She is a good Jedi,why is she only 14th?
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
There was a deleted scene of her being killed during order 66. Anikan was ordered to kill her because general palpatine knew she would be to powerful to take alone. She was without a doubt the most powerful female jedi ad was well known for her connection with nature. General Grevious made it clear that he feared her and she bested anyone that went against her. Sadly she didn not have much screen time.. but it makes up for that in the comics. Overall deserves to be put at least number 8
Shaak Ti is a great Jedi- skilled in the force. She used battle meditation to help the Jedi defeat the seperatists and same with the 501st Legion Order 66. She has one of the highest medichlorian counts and is impressively skilled in lightsaber combat despite her abundant use of the force.
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!
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.
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.
She has raw power, she can control it. She killed palpatine.
Speculation; in episode 8 Luke has trained Rey.
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!
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.
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.
From Star Wars Old Republic- was Grand Master- same position as Yoda onloy more powerful.
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.
He dueled Mace Windu and drew him. After he revealed his skill in Vaapad.
Great Tracker. Actually in Mos Eisley in the Backround of episode 1
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'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.
To little is known of him
He beat the Sith Emperor who consumed and entire planet's force energy, that's called power. Getting beat my your own master and being a Chosen One does not make you powerful (ahem cough*cough Anakin)
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!
Poof should be in the top ten
For being one of my favorite jedi masters.
Get in the mood for that long neck a yellow lightsaber
Okay when he can see but, when he is blind he is the worst.
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.
Defeated 3 insanely powerful Sith Lords including Nihilus who can eat whole planets.
He is kinda cute
She absorbs a deadly biological weapon to save many lives
She is related to Yoda
You look like Yoda
