Greatest Star Wars Fights Between a Jedi Knight and a Sith Lord

The Top Ten

1 Obi-Wan Kenobi Vs Anakin Skywalker (Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith)

This duel tops all of the others by far, not only were the moves & effects top notch, but there was also great emotion & meaning to this. Anakin & Obi-Wan were best friends, but due to Anakin's fall to the Dark Side Obi-Wan had to stop him, causing this. That last part where Anakin is burning & Obi-Wan is delivering emotional words gets me every time. This was the most anticipated duel in Star Wars history, & it did not fail to deliver.

This battle was the most epic and perhaps the most emotional. But of course, Obi-Wan won. And at the end of the battle was the famous quote, "You were the Chosen One! You were supposed to destroy the Sith, not join them! You were a brother to me! "

In this late fight of the movie Anakin Skywalker transformed to a Sith Lord and made a hell of a fight with Obi-Wan Kenobi

Hands down, the fighting was the best. There were a lot of stupid lines said by Anakin, but the actual fight was undeniably sweet!

2 Obi-Wan Kenobi Vs Darth Maul (Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace)

The best fights are whenever the light sabers are moving supersonic and when they use the force.

Qui Gon Jinn was also in the fight.

3 Yoda Vs Chancellor Palpatine (Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith)

The two strongest force users of their time going head to head. This one was epic in every sense of the word.

Definitely the best. The two best of the order, the two chefs of their orders going head to head, that's epic!

The Jedi Grand Master vs The Dark Lord of the Sith? Epic!

This has got to be #1 since Anakin wasn't a full sith lord yet in 3.

4 Qui-Gon Jinn Vs Darth Maul (Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace)

Darth Maul has two lightsabers but Qui-Gon can defend himself that long. Qui-Gon's cool anyway...

5 Agen Kolar, Saesse Tinn, Kit Fisto and Mace Windu vs. Chancellor Palpatine (Darth Sidious) and Anakin Skywalker (Darth Vader) (Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of The Sith)

The battle is epic. Also, its tragic, seeing the jedi slaughtered like pigs as they realize too late how powerful Palpatine is. This battle shows the power of Mace Windu, greatest lightsaber wielder of the Jedi, and the only jedi to defeat Palpatine in battle (Yoda gets a stalemate, and Darth Vader kills the Emperor by surprise. ) Also, it is the turning point of the series. The Empire is set up, the Emperor is scarred, Anakin becomes evil, and the jedi order is destroyed. Its tragedy and adventure at its best.

It's treason, then. Best scene ever, showing how powerful Sidious actually is!

Anakin wasn't part, he just cut of Mace Windu's hand and threw the lightsaber of the building

Three jedi knights killed like there Parisians. At least kit fists was able to fight palpatine for a few seconds. Lol at and tiin were like stupid padawans

6 Anakin Skywalker Vs Count Dooku (Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith)

In this episode Anakin is a complete Jedi and defeats Count Dooku, too bad that late he steps to the dark side of the force

Great fight a big reason why enjoy Anakin vs Dooku fights

If he would not kill him,there will be no Vader or stormtroppers

7 Luke Skywalker Vs Darth Vader (Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi)

Best in emotion and drama! Luke's unwillingness to fight then turned to his anger and defeating Vader. Vader not really trying to hurt Like because he was so conflicted at the time. Great music for their fight scene as well.

After this fight Darth Vader returns to it's origins of a Jedi as he was as Anakin Skywalker after killing Palpatine / Darth Sidious in favor of his son Luke

Worst light saber fight Luke was a huge cowered than threw a tantrum.

8 Yoda Vs Count Dooku (Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones)

I was very impressed with this one, cause you see Yoda so old and fragile, you wonder why is he such a jedi master, but this fight reveals that he also can be very taugh and strong and not only wise.

9 Anakin Skywalker Vs Count Dooku (Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones)
10 Obi-Wan Kenobi Vs Darth Vader (Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope)

The first fight of this kind in the first appeared Star Wars movie

Do you know that Ben was supposed to survive?

This was the worst duel becuse they had no idea how to do these yet

The Contenders

11 Kanan Jarrus Vs The Inquisitor (Star Wars Rebels)
12 Rey, Finn vs. Kylo Ren (Star Wars: The Force Awakens)

I loved this fight! Rey is awesome, and the effects and setting were gorgeous!

This fight was cool, no?

13 Luke Skywalker Vs Darth Vader (Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back)

The most eerie, unnerving of the lightsaber battles due to lighting, sound effects, mood, and atmosphere. Also concludes with one of the most (in) famous lines in movie history. How can this NOT be the best?

No, I am your father. Best movie phrase ever!

Luke isn't a jedi yet in this film

Luke wasn't a jedi knight yet.

14 Cade Skywalker vs Darth Krayt (Legacy Finale)

Cade's quote alone puts it on the list, not to mention the epic dueling. It's not in the top 5, but could be 10th.

15 Darth Revan vs. Darth Malak (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic)

Much more important for the fate of the galaxy than Grievous or Qui-Gon. The republic was saved by Revan once again. This event has the same heavy consequences like the death of Palpatine or Windu

How could this not be in the top ten? Best storyline advancing too it and maybe one of the best settings for it. Not spoiling for anyone who hasn't played it. Which after 11 years, how could you not play it?!

Well, you never said it had to be in the movies.

16 Meetra Surik vs. Darth Traya (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords)

The most epic battle, not because of noisy effects, or cgi stunts, but because of the story, the location, the characters and the tension, which has built since the arrival on Malachor. The death of Traya brought peace for the galaxy and the force for nearly 300 years. Also, the Exile gave the Jedi and the republic a chance to heal. The battle is more epic with the restored content mod

17 Darth Nihilus vs Meetra Surik (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II :The Sith Lords)
18 General Grievous vs Obi Wan Kenobi Episode III (Revenge of the Sith)

All the arms were amazingly cool along with obi WANs pet and the clones swooping in for the rescue showing there power while not the first reveal of the extraordinary abilitys of Jedi and clone alike in my opinion it was on of the best.

General Grievous is not a sith

19 Mace Windu vs Sindires

It was epic!

20 Darth Sion vs Meetra Surik (Star Wars: The Knights of the Old Republic II:The Sith Lords)
