Top 10 Most Powerful Jedi / Sith From Star Wars


The Top Ten

1 Yoda Yoda Yoda 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.

Did you not see the man at nearly 900 take on Dooku. To keep yourself alive at that age is amazing in it self

Yoda the best! Only equaled by Mace Windu and Palpatine.

Little green old fella who kicks crap outta dooku and fights evenly with sith lord showing superior knowledge of force and doing all that at 900+

He is so old yet so powerful sure he lost to palpitane Because he thought he was not that powerful jackasses

2 Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader

Anakin Skywalker is, without a doubt, the most powerful force sensitive in history. Even though he let his arrogance get the better of him on Mustafar, Jedi Master Obi Wan Kenobi admitted that Anakin had become a far better Jedi than he could have ever hoped to be. He quite easily defeated Count Dooku while Obi Wan lay unconscious and defeated, and he is the Chosen One of the prophecy. As Darth Vader, he was unmatched throughout the entire galaxy, and he is the only one throughout both trilogies to not be instantly helpless when struck with Sidious' force lightning. He was described in Episode 1 to have an even higher midichlorian count than even Yoda. He has had a reputation of being one of the greatest lightsaber duelists in the Jedi Order's history, as well being praised by several Jedi of being capable of what he was able to do at such a young age.

"Fully defeated by just anyone, the dark side cannot be, but only by the Chosen One. And who might be this Jedi? Know I do not, but not yet born is he or she. This much, sense I can. A vessel of pure Force the Chosen One will be, more powerful than any Jedi in history."

―Yoda, from the Great Holocron

If Yoda said it, so it must be. As Luke, Yoda, Revan etc. are fan favorites, they are always called the most powerful, but it's just not true. Anakin/ Vader, is, was, and will forever be The Chosen One. The most powerful force sensitive mortal ever. He forced The Son and The Daughter to their knees and was entrusted by The Father to keep them in check once he died. As much as people love them, Luke, Yoda, Obi-Wan and Sidious could never have done that.

He should be Number 1 considering he is the most powerful force user ever known.

Anakin skywalker is the best Jedi and the best at using the force

3 Luke Skywalker Luke Skywalker Luke 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 Skywalker has the exact same force potential as Anakin Skywalker and in some cases has been deemed the Chosen One by many media outputs, but there is a difference at the base of Luke and Anakin's power and connectivity with the Force. Anakin had the potential to use the force beyond known thought, but his potential to do so was ruined when he was defeated by his former Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. But, in comparison to the feats that Luke has achieved after the Battle of Endor, we can see that he was able to achieve oneness with the Force more than once to destroy the Yuuzhan Vong and in other scenarios, a feat Anakin did once during the Clone Wars. As much as I like both of these Jedi, Luke in comparison was a far greater Force user and Jedi than Anakin.

I think Luke should be second, He took down the empire with so little Jedi training. He's strong with the force and stayed strong against the dark side where Anakin had not. Even though he was tempted because of the rest of the rebellion were going to get destroyed according to Palpatine He had faith, and trusted them. And that's one of the reasons I think Luke should be second.

So I was reading down the comments and saw that someone said, and later in his life became the living representation of the Force, (that I knew... the proof is in the pudding) destroying an entire fleet of star destroyers with pure force ability. WHAT?!

He was very powerful, and what makes him a better Jedi than Anakin is that he used his powers for good and not for evil, and for that he had good judgment.

4 Obi-Wan Kenobi Obi-Wan Kenobi Obi-Wan Kenobi is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, played by Sir Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor.

Obi Wan is a legendary Jedi he was strong both physically and mentally

Physically: because he was the first Jedi in centuries to defeat a Sith (Darth Maul) even though he wasn't a Jedi master. He also defeated Jango Fett but jango escaped he followed him. He also defeated maul and savage together many times in the clone wars (which is canon). He also defeated General grievous. He also defeated Anakin (who was filled with hate and anger). He sacrificed himself for luke.

Mentally because he saw his master die, he saw his love (satine) die, he saw the guy who he trained and treated like a brother turn to the dark side willing to kill him. He saw many of his Jedi friends die during order 66. He saw the clones turning against him. He spent the rest of his life in a cave making sure luke is hidden from the empire and then trained him because he saw in him the ability to defeat the sith. He sacrificed himself to show Luke that death is not the last thing but there is the force. ...more

Obi Wan is a legendary Jedi. He was the first Jedi in centuries to kill a Sith, Darth Maul. His actions shaped the galaxy for eternity. He taught Anakin, the Chosen One, helped and trained Luke Skywalker, and did many other things. He was skilled at fighting, and was very wise. As Anakin once said, he is "As wise as Master Yoda, and as powerful as Master Windu." He is intelligent, brave, strong, and a role model for others. Without him, the Empire couldn't have been overthrown, since Luke would never have been taught.

Obi Wan's mastery of the form 3 is second to none and he in my opinion is the best all rounder jedi ever. He was the embodiment of the perfect jedi. Sure he might've not been the chosen one or has a high amount of midichlorians but he was able to match Anakin's (supposedly the most powerful force user to ever live) force push showing how much knowledge and prowess of the force he had achieved. And who knows what he had done during his time on Tattooine, sure his dueling skills must've failed due to old age and lack of practice but I'm sure his wisdom grew 10 times to even match those of Yoda. Hopefully they show this in his upcoming movie. Oh and Obi Wan has the HIGH GROUND!

Dude is a badass.

5 Darth Sidious Darth Sidious

"Yoda went after Palpatine in the empty Senate chamber, but could not defeat the most powerful Sith Lord in history. "
- Star Wars: The New Essential Chronology, P. 84

Easy number one, sat in Jedi meetings and was not sensed, obviously stronger than any of the jedi in the force, beat Yoda, and anyone that says windu beat him is wrong, he obviously let him win to get anakin to take the final step to the dark side.

Powers of Darth Sidious, only his force powers are more powerful than the Force powers of master Yoda, if he had better knowledge of using it he would have a better chance of defeating Yoda.

Sidious is more powerful than yoda and obi wan

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

Mace Windu has to be one of the most powerful Jedi of all time, he was able to overpower Chancellor Palpatine and Jango Fett, the most feared Sith Lord and the most feared Bounty Hunter. Master Windu should be higher than Darth Sidious and who knows maybe Mace even had the potential to kill Anakin Skywalker. As most people know Windu also uses powers of the dark side however not turning into a power-obsessed monster like Sidious which boosts his force abilities. Overall Mace Windu has to be one of the strongest Jedi Masters to ever live. - MagmaFox

Mace Windu and Anakin are the two strongest Jedi EVER! Mace Windu should be number 1 or 2 strongest Jedi. Didn't you watch the Star Wars movies? He totally beat up Palpatine! Palpatine would have died if it wasn't for Anakin!

The best in lightsaber duels, "yoda" no kills the emperor, and Mace Windu.He could defeat him, only for the betrayal of Anakin Skywalker ( Vader ) I do not beat him, ( windu not know what happened Anakin to the dark side ) and was the most powerful Jedi is Windu.

Did vahada training. could defeat anyone.

7 Galen Marek Galen Marek Galen Marek, codenamed Starkiller, was a male Human apprentice of the Sith Lord Darth Vader. A powerful Force-user who lived during the era of the Galactic Empire, Marek originated from the Wookiee home planet of Kashyyyk as the sole offspring of two Jedi Knights—Mallie and Kento Marek—who deserted more.

Galen Marek had the potential to be one of the most powerful Force users in Jedi and Sith history. He was able to decimate countless imperial forces by himself, not to mention he defeated Rahm Kota, Kazdan Paratus, Maris Brood, and the Emperor SINGLEHANDEDLY. Hell, he even managed to overwhelm Shaak Ti and his former master Darth Vader in lightsaber combat, both of whom were two of the greatest duelists of their time. Also, Marek was able to defeat PROXY's training modules replicating some legendary duelists such as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul. He was even able to telekinetically grip and change the direction of a falling Imperial I-class Star Destroyer and force it to the ground. And let's not forget Starkiller, the codename given to a clone of the late Galen Marek, who was said to be even more powerful than the original Marek was.

Starkiller is the dark counterpart of Luke Skywalker, the most powerful Force-wielded in history. Starkiller wasn't even at his fullest potential when he defeated Darth Vader and the Emperor, and he wasn't even drawing upon his full power to combat them, so if allowed to grow to his fullest, he could've easily become one of the most powerful Jedi/Sith that ever existed, if not the most powerful.

Mastered both sides of the force, both dark and light. Able to use his emotions to fight without being corrupted by them. Not only incredibly agile and skilled with a lightsaber, but also has tremendous ability with the force, able to instantly kill multiple Stormtroopers with his force lightning.

Not to mention he took on Darth Vader and Palpatine back to back.

He is best powerful Jedi in star war come on man he when he get he's power get purple man it get purple

8 Darth Revan Darth Revan

Revan is my personal favorite. He mastered both the light and dark side of the force, conquered the dark side, turned from evil back to good, has a cool mask, was able to keep vitiate at bay and was able to resist darth vitiate's mind control

He was the most powerful and most dangerous force user since both jedi and sith team up together to take him down that in it self says he's the best and baddest.

Revan is such a cool and awesome character. He so should be #1

He is an awesome jedi and sith

9 Darth Plagueis Darth Plagueis Darth Plagueis is a fictional character from Star Wars. Originally a Muun named Hego Demask, Plagueis trained under Darth Tenebrous. After he murdered Tenebrous, Plagueis, disguised as businessman Hego Demask, mentored a young Palpatine. Palpatine eventually joined Plagueis as his Sith apprentice. Plagueis more.

If only he did not took that glass of wine.

This dude is pretty strong, but Darth sidious has to be stronger to kill him.

Darth Plagueis could bring back the loved ones from the dead with his powers, and the only reason sidious killed him is beacause he killed Plagueis while he was in deep meditation so Plagueis duh

Sidious killed him in his sleep for a reason...For a good reason.

10 Darth Maul Darth Maul Darth Maul is a fictional character in the science fiction franchise Star Wars. Trained as Darth Sidious's first apprentice, he serves as a Sith Lord and a master of wielding a double-bladed lightsaber. Darth Maul first appeared in Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace, and has also appeared in The more.

Maul never reached his full potential in my opinion. In fact he was only an apprentice at the time he killed jedi master Qui Gon-Jinn. Had Maul not been too overconfident when fighting Obi-Wan, he could have easily been known as the greatest sith lightsaber duelist if he trained for many years after the fight, though his force control was not as strong.

If you read "The Wrath of Darth Maul," you can see that maul was actually in complete control of his battle against Qui Gon and Obi Wan, and should have won. He is underestimated a lot

The Contenders

11 Darth Bane Darth Bane Darth Bane is a legendary Sith from Star Wars. Darth Bane was one of the greatest Sith lords who ever lived in the Star Wars universe. Darth Bane's greatest accomplishment was creating the Rule of Two, making the Sith am secretive order with one master and one apprentice. The apprentice would learn more.

Obviously since this dude restarted the sith order! He not only suffered worms eating his chest and switching blood to acid, he murdered everyone in the sith academy! There was once a sith academy... Now only two sith may happen. Master and apprentice.

This dude destroyed the sith in a few years, at about twenty something, he was bald

He is so boss! He defeated all the rest of the sith.

One to embody power, the other to crave it.
No one else knew the siths were becoming weaker than the Jedis. The jedis grow in number and the siths are supposed to grew in strength.

12 Revan Revan

He mastered both the light and the dark side. He was a Sith Lord and probably the best Jedi of his time.

Mandalorian to sith to jedi...He is awesome.

13 Kit Fisto Kit Fisto Kit Fisto Is a Jedi from the Star Wars universe who appeared in Star Wars, Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars, Episode III: Revenge Of the Sith, and also appeared in the TV show, Star Wars the Clone Wars,

Coolest Jedi ever. He almost killed Grievous. His sense of humor while also being one of the most powerful Jedi of all time should definitely give him a higher spot on this list.

One of the coolest jedi ever. Had a great sense of humor and was very powerful during the clone wars

He's just your all around Jedi.

Not as powerful as you think he was easily killed by Palpatine

14 Qui-Gon Jinn Qui-Gon Jinn Qui-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.

Qui gon jinn was right in finding the chosen one of the most powerful sith in history and the one who taught yoda and obi wan the ways of the after life force etc. He was the master of obi wan the man who defeats the chosen one, darth maul. He was trained by dooku who was trained by yoda. To many he was considered a grey jedi someone who didn't agree with them but was strong as well as acknowledged and respected in a high regard to a point his padawan acknoledged he could of been in the.council.

Without him learning to "become one with the Force" beyond death, Yoda and Kenobi would not have learned the skill as well, thus preventing Luke from being trained by the Force Ghost of Kenobi, meaning Luke would have never made it Dagobah to then be trained by an aging Yoda. Without Qui-Gon, there is no Luke.

Qui Gon is better than Kit Fisto.

Way too underrated and this guy trained Obi Wan Kenobi.

15 Darth Malgus Darth Malgus

He killed a jedi master! And at one point would have killed stable if not for her master!

Malgus nearly left the republic without a capital during the great galactic war. The sacking of coruscant caused the jedi to have to move to Tython because the citizens of the republic blamed them for the attack. But the emporer back on Dromund Kaas was only using it as leverage to gain greater control over the galaxy.

Coolest. Sith. Ever.

He rocks the house! 1111

16 Darth Tyranus

Count Dooku/Darth Tyranus should not be underestimated as he was trained by Grand Master Yoda and nearly killed Obi-Wan and Anakin and was able to fight Yoda without much difficulty however on his next duel with Obi-Wan and Anakin he was taken down and betrayed by his own master (Emperor Palpatine). - MagmaFox

Darth Tyranus or also known as Count Dooku has a specific style of battling his enemies and he is one of most powerful Sith Lords ever, his Force powers are more powerful than Skywalker, he has a strategy. He died only because he was drained by the power he wanted so much.

Tyranus should be much higher on this list. He was apprentice to Yoda and is also able to fight on par with Yoda. He also beat Jedis Obi-wan and Anakin without too much trouble. In fact both of the jedi would have been killed if it were not for Yoda.

He's the BEST!

17 Darth Nihilus Darth Nihilus

Only beaten because his force bond was severed by a traitor. Drained an ENTIRE PLANET. A stray thought of him, just uttering his name could draw him to your location. Was part of the The Sith Triumvirate, which included Darth Traya (Most learned and philosophical Sith) and Darth Sion (Pretty much Immortal). Hunted Jedi after the civil war.

He. Eats. Planets. Yeah, Yoda can keep up with Dooku at age 900, this guy is only a spirit with no physical form, and he ATE A PLANET!

One of the strongest sith ever, absorbing an entire planet probably isn't easy

Darth Nihilus ate a planet how is he not higher!

19 Ki-Adi Mundi

Cool jedi master. One of the most wisest jedi. Shouldn't be number 35. Should be 15 or 20.

One of the little jedi who realized about the 66 order and even fought back. He was also the general of the marine clone troopers (an elite body)

Ki should be way higher then number 19 he can challenge Mace Windu in a fight ki should have been on the top 5. Ki can beat Count dooku and even Anakin Skywalker in a fight.

An underestimated jedi. He served as a general and possessed extremely high intelligence.

20 Jaina Solo


Oh yeah son

Very powerful Jedi
Killed Darth Caedus in a fight eventhough Darth Caedus was much stronger
