Top Ten Most Powerful, Skilled Jedi and Sith From the Star Wars Films

Note this is only from the six films, not from the books or games.
The Top Ten
1 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.

Yoda is the best. Some things he did are: he defeated Darth Bane, he was more powerful than emperor Sidious, he is one of the 8 Jedi Grandmasters ever, he can freeze people with the force, he defeated Dooku, one of the best swordsmen with almost no effort, he unlocked the path to immortality with the light side of the force, he doesn't even need a lightsaber to stop force lightning, he could tell when order 66 was happening, in episode 2 he saved a lot of important people in the jedi order by saving them with the gunships. That is only the last around 100 years of his life. Think what he he might have done in his first 800 years when in his prime.

Yoda by all time is the most skilled Jedi. He has everything, good lightsaber combat skills, strong in the force, experience, name it all and he has it. He rarely kills, as he is the true follower of the light side. He has even seen Jedi turning from peacekeepers to warriors. He is still a peacekeeper. Now the point where he supposedly lost to Dooku. He didn't, he just saved Anakin and Obi-wan. And the point against Sidious, he could just get his lightsaber back anytime, but knew that for the time being, when he knew it was just him and Obi-Wan, he should complete his duty as a peacekeeper and not a warrior, and being a visionary saw a new light of hope ahead, and had to fulfill his duty as a Jedi Master, to train a new Padawan who could defeat the Empire.

I love Yoda and all don't get me wrong but I don't think he should be in first place. In my opinion Vader is the best but Yoda was pretty bad ass. He was a master in all the forms of lightsaber combat. He knew every everything about the Jedi and the light side of the force. He was proof that you didn't need the darkside to be abnormally powerful. He was never ever defeated in lightsaber combat. He won a duel against Dooku who was one of the greatest lightsaber duelists in the history of the Jedi and the Sith. He equaled Darth Sideous in force abilities and tied in their battle purely because Sideous had spread the Darkside everywhere.

Ok, look. What do you think the title Grand Master of the Jedi means? I mean, no offense. I love vader, he's my idol, but if Yoda went to Mustafar, not Kenobi, Vader would need more then that suit to survive. Heck, he wouldn't have even survived an encounter with Jedi Grand Master Yoda. Sure, Kenobi's a master swordsman, but Yoda knows all, and I stress ALL forms and variants of lightsaber combat. I mean, if you want a good fight, tell george Lucas to make Yoda fight vader. I mean BEFORE he got burned. Lets see if anakin can withstand YODA!

2 Darth Vader / Anakin Skywalker Darth Vader is a Star Wars character and the main antagonist of the first three original Star Wars films and the main protagonist of the Star Wars prequel trilogy under his original name Anakin Skywalker. He had been trained as a Jedi but defected to the Sith lord and Galactic Chancellor Palpatine. ...read more.

Would have become the most powerful force wielder ever, tied with Luke, but couldn't due to his injuries on Mustafar. Regardless, he is still the 4th strongest after Luke, Sidious, and Yoda.

Lucas himself said he's 3 times more powerful than Yoda, and before getting burned he was 2 times more powerful than Sidious.
So he's clearly the most powerful force user.

People say Yoda was the most powerful but that actually isn't true. he's not the grand master because he's really powerful but he is the grand master because he is very wise and has been a jedi for a very very long time. Yoda only matched Count Dooku's force abilities and same with his lightsaber skills. Anakin destroyed Dooku in a duel. Also he has demonstrated immense force abilities (especially in the CGI clone wars series). Everyone would probably say that Kenobi is more powerful because he beat him, but he didn't beat him because of his skill. He beat him because Vader couldn't jump high enough (even though we see him jump higher and faster in several occasions). Some might argue that Mace Windu, but he wouldn't be able to beat him in a lightsaber duel because his lightsaber form wouldn't do crap against him, especially since Dooku who was pretty much the best duelist of his time was beaten by Anakin. Vader has immense force abilities and he is the chosen one! Sidious stated that ...more

I don't blame people for believing that yoda is the strongest character in star wars. He is bad ass and is my favorite jedi...but he is indeed in second place. Anakin was meant to be the strongest. He is the chosen one. In the end he brought back balance to the force by killing darth sidious with his son by his side. He was the most sensitive to the force man in history. Strongest force user ever I don't even have to list all the things he was capable of doing in the 4th 5th and 6th movie just watch them he could even have killed Luke several times. This is not an argue. Anakin was meant to be the strongest. Cause he is Darth Vader you know?

3 Darth Sidious Sheev Palpatine (also known by his Sith identity Darth Sidious and publicly as Senator Palpatine, then Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, and later Emperor Palpatine) is a fictional character and one of the primary antagonists of the Star Wars franchise, mainly portrayed by Ian McDiarmid.

The strongest darkside force wielder to ever live. Was able to force drain power from both Rey and Kylo when they tried to defeat him

I think he was the most powerful just short of the Ones, and the Chosen One(Anakin Skywalker). He was the only one to not literally BE the force, yet still manage to do what they could. In my mind, the force is like a river, and the users use it to their advantage becoming the force's Ally, even its Servant. But Sidious didn't do that. He dove into the water and made the river do as he said. He tamed the Dark Side. He owned the Dark Side. And when the maverick wave that was supposed to be uncontrollable struck him (the chosen one) he returned in the expanded universe. He defied the force, and succeeded. The force itself cannot harm him. Although Anakin could have been more powerful than him, he didn't let him, and the only one more powerful than him were the ones, who again, couldn't harm him, as he controlled the force. They were the force. The Ones were Sidious' pets. So, even if you were more powerful/skilled than Sidious, you still wouldn't be able to harm him.

Although it seems as though he lost to Mace Windu, he was clever enough and not driven so much by arrogance so to appear weak in order to manipulate Anakin. He remained hidden as a Sith Lord to the entire Jedi order until he revealed himself of his own accord. While many will argue that in the films he appeared to be lacking in power and unable to survive being thrown down a shaft, I think this is purely because it is a film and most if not all of the lore would have been made after the movies, which I guess would have explored the force to a greater extent than what was apparantly within Sidios' grasp, making him seem underpowered. However, much of the way that sith work is though manipulation, which could explain why Sidious didn't want to destroy Luke entirely if he had the chance to lure him into to killing his father and draw closer to the dark side.

Darth Sidious, though he is a villain, is super powerful. He is a master of manipulating events to his will, but is no slouch in one-on one combat. In fact, he bested Yoda and would have finished Luke Skywalker off too, had Darth Vader. Everybody puts so much stock in Vader, and I will admit that he is an iconic and powerful character, but know that Anakin would still be a Jedi, or not even exist at all ( in a deleted scene from Revenge of the Sith, Palpatine reveals he created Anakin- Shmi was just the vessel that carried him into the world). Without Sidious, the Star Wars movies would be the most boring sci-fi movie ever.

4 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.

I think he should be number 3 on this list (currently he is right after Sidious). He defeated Darth Vader, his father who was more training than him and destroyed the Death Star. He clearly cannot defend himself from Darth Sidious' lightning bolts (I guess it's what they're called) because as Vader said to him, "You are unwise to lower your defenses! ". He can defeat Sidious, if only he didn't lower his defenses. But, what I recommend more, is having Luke at number 2 next to Yoda. I mean, he only has short amount of training! At the Empire Strikes back we see him as a skilled Padawan (I didn't know how because nobody taught him the lightsaber tricks) and the next thing we saw on Return of the Jedi was like a Jedi Master even before becoming a Jedi Knight!

It took Luke a very short amount of time to take full control of his powers. He defeated Vader in ROTJ, and destroyed the Death Star. Not only that, but in the Expanded Universe (Which the 7th movie should follow because the stories are awesome) he trains his son Ben, and his 2 nephews and nieces. He is the Grand Master Jedi, brought Anakin back to the good side of the force, and trained hundreds of Jedi to restore order and safety to the New Republic. He was seduced by the dark side many times, but he always remained good and defeated sith.

The creator said Luke was the most powerful, and he should know. If legends are dragged in I would say that the Exile in KOTOR 2 would be a possible candidate for one of the most powerful though no one else discusses him/her.
Luke's potential is on par with Anakin's except that Luke trains hard to reach his potential unlike his father. So Luke works hard on his skills and connection like Obi with the raw talent of Anakin, in the end no one can compete with that regardless where cannon goes from here.

Have to agree read the books and none of the other Jedi and I stress Jedi not sith could even touch him Darth bane might give him some trouble and I wouldn't be suprised if he won, but I digress if I was betting I would pick Luke over anyone. On a side note why is general grievous even on this list he was niether Jedi nor sith he couldn't use the force he was mostly machine he was just taught how to fight with a lightsaberlol. I mean just cause I learn how to swing a katana does not make me a samurai srry got to ahead of myself ill shut up now

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

There is no way you can convince me that any other jedi or sith (from the movie franchise) is a better fighter than Obi. Sure, Yoda and Sidious maybe more force-adept, and Mace Windu may have been a stronger saber-fighter, but Obi-wan is still top tier in both categories. Just take a look at his accomplishments: Killed Darth Maul in one-on-one combat (becoming the first jedi to do so in 1000 years), defeated Count Dooku, killed General Grievous, defeated Anakin Skywalker who he trained and became one of the most powerful sith, and trained Like Skywalker, who defeated Darth Vader. Nobody else on this list deserves the #1 seat more than Obi-wan Kenobi.

Obi Wan is very powerful skilled and passionate Jedi he beat Darth Vader Darth Maul General Grievous dooku. When he survived order 66 he helped to convince Yoda to go back to the Jedi Temple and stop to rest of the clones and take back the temple so they could change the message and warn any surviving Jedi to stay away thinking of others instead of himself not to mention he and Yoda were largely outnumbered.and sacrificed himself to disable the tractor beam and save the others then came back and train Luke and guide him.he should be should be at least number 2 at the least.

Obi-Wan took down Grievous and Maul, when others couldn't. He survived Order 66 when almost every other Jedi didn't. He took down Vader, but just didn't finish him off (he would've killed him then if Vader wasn't in the Original Trilogy) He was very skilled against Dooku, and in the Clone Wars even bested him several times. Dooku just escaped. He helped found Luke, and begin his training. His ghost also helped guide Luke to destroy the Empire. He was skilled in lightsaber combat and the force as well. What else do I need to say. Obi Wan is indeed the best Jedi out there.

As far as canon goes, Obi-Wan Kenobi is a strong Jedi in that he defeated Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader when he already had completely fallen to the dark side. His match-up with him proved that he is a really strong and good combatant. But, his matches against Lord Tyranus and Jango Fett did not compare favorably, he was easily outmatched by Dooku in both instances. His fight against Grievous in Revenge of the Sith made him stand out as he was the only Jedi to have ever defeated him without resulting in Grievous escaping. His countless batles in the Clone Wars made him look like a good fighter but in some if not a lot of instances a little weak. His first and final battle against Darth Maul made him really look powerful. He masters combat but he hasn't got much knowledge of the force until Yoda teaches him about his ecnounter with Qui-Gon Jinn in the last episode of the Clone Wars, where he learns about force ghosts and the difference of the cosmic and living force.

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

Very talented, but he would have lost if Sidious was trying. Sidious had a second lightsaber (which he used during his fight with Yoda) that he could have pulled out anytime. He just wanted to complete Anakin's journey to the dark side.

Are you kidding?
He has a purple lightsaber because his actor wanted one but in the story only the Jedi that are powerful enough get a purple one. This means him and Revan are the most powerful star wars characters ever. Vader's only ahead of this guy is because he's famous. I could've killed Palpatine. People say that Palpatine let him win so Anakin would fulfil his potential but no. Mace Windu was going easy on Sidious at the start because he thought they could easily kill him. But when the emperor killed his comrades he realised his power and went his most powerful on him. You can tell Mace was beating the emperor because when he tried to use force lightning but was strained so he couldn't. Windu would've easily killed Anakin but he didn't expect him to attack - Unnamed Google User Remade

His battles against Jango Fett in Attack of the Clones and Darth Sidious in Revenge of the Sith, are the only appearances that he makes fighting in the movies, and they do make him stand out because he could defeat Sidious, even though I think that Sidious could have sensed Anakin and gave up in order to make him believe that the Jedi were evil and fully turn him to the dark side. Mace's appearances in the Clone Wars make him the most bad-ass Jedi as he defeats his enemy without a problem. That is all canon material, about some legends mentioned material, he is the only Jedi that masters the 7th form of lightsaber combat, further refining his skills. Being able to borrow some dark side techniques, he can easily take down a sith lord.

Mace Windu is the second most powerful force and lightsaber user in the galaxy, second only to Yoda. Let me show you:
He killed Jango Fett and many droids on geonosis, he defeated millions of droids on Dantooine with BAR hands and the force. He bested Count Dooku and his guards after secounds on Boz pity, Mace Windu beat Asajj Ventress and Sora Bulq easily Windu created Shatterpoint and many other very powerful force attacks. Windu even managed to defeat Palpatine if Anakin didn't help Sidious. Only three there were, Count Dooku ever feared, Mace Windu, Yoda and Palpatine.

7 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 ...read more.

Darth Plagueis could stop who ever he wanted from dying and could create life. He has mastery of both the light and dark side. His mastery of the force is beyond what any other Sith Lord or Jedi Master has managed, even "The Chosen One" (having the most midichlorians means most potential, not that he necessarily used it; to get the full potential of his midichlorian level Anakin/Darth Vader would need to hone his skills for hundreds of years, but his life was cut short. By cheating death, Plagueis was able to make full use of his potential). Palpatine had to *try* to kill him while he was asleep because he knew he was no match for Plagueis, but Plagueis was aware of the attempt on his life and actually survived it (it was actually master manipulation, a sign of his power in the dark-side force). Presumably he was able to block his force from being sensed by Jedi such as Yoda as well.
-yes, this is mostly conjecture

Ok so let's get this strait dooku and maul are higher than plagues how is that possible he could create life and heal others no sith could do that and he created the chosen one so in a way he was responsible for anikans turn to Vader and he I think is snoke this guy deserves 2nd place and darth maul sucks he blinded Kanan and lost!

He was so much more powerful than maul and dooku. He was more powerful than sidious only reason sidious could kill him was because he was in his sleep. Only person that could beet him, and it would be hard, would be revan.

Darth Plagueis could stop who ever he wanted from dying and could create life. Palpatine had to kill him when he least expected because he new that if he tried while he was aware he would get decimated

8 Count Dooku Count Dooku of Serenno, from the House of Dooku is a fictional character from the Star Wars franchise, appearing in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith as a primary and minor antagonist respectively. He was portrayed by Christopher Lee and ...read more.

Dooku was in his time the second most powerful jedi master while in the jedi order, during the clone wars were only matched by mace windu and yoda only being defeated by yoda, in battle over coruscant anakin could only defeat him because sidious (palpatine) was watching which eneabled him to probabely use battle meditation againsts dooku and he told him to hold back and promissed to spare him in case of defeat. Also he had a rare force ability the force healing, and he is also remenbered as one of the most skilled lightsaber duelist on the entire starwars history.A.K. A this is a fact.

Dooku whole hero was a membro of the jedi order, was the second most powerful in the order, durinho the clone wars he was only matched by two of the jedi:yoda and mace windu, incluing yoda was the only one how could defeat him durona how prime in clone wars and for those how are wondering how could dooku could Lose for anakin I wil just say one thing darth sidious was whatching the battle and could also use battle meditation againsts dooku and also sidious ordered him to hold back and promessing to spare him in case of defeat.

Dooku is one if the most skilled swordsman in the entire galaxy I consider him equals to yoda. And in the clone wars he faught Anakin Skywalker and Obi wan kenobi with one hand behind his back. And fought the night sisters lead by ventress while his senses were dimming has anyone else in the Star Wars universe done that, I think not.

Count Dooku was extremely old for his species and he was able to defeat several Jedi at a time. He could hold his own against the legendary Master Yoda and defeat Obi-Wan with Anakin in Attack of the Clones. Dooku could also project force lightning which few Sith could accomplish in the Star Wars movies.

9 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 ...read more.

Darth Maul was a badass. He used flashy skill sets and survived a 2v1 against Kenobi and Jinn. Shortly after he killed the jedi master and had the "higher ground" against Kenobi. He could've killed him but waited leading to his down fall... literally. But somehow he survived and was his usual badass self again.

Darth maul was the only Sith to molest young anikin without getting caught. He was the only one that was able to defeat Captain Kirk and Spock before the clone wars even started. Darth maul was also the only master that could shuffle a deck of cards with one hand.

I mean he took Down a professional bounty hunter at age 14 don't mention he took down a bounty hunter school. He got cut in half and survived. Then he kills 1 more Jedi. Defeats the deathwatch rules a planet. And takes on Sidious. Man...

Anakin survive with is arm and leg being chop and Darth Sidious find it amazing and thought it was a great sign of is power. But Darth maul survive with half of his body being chop I think this is even more powerful!

10 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.

Liam Neeson will find you...

Qui Gon Jinn discovered the Chosen One, discovered the way to retain your identitity even after death, and trained yet another of the greatest Jedi ever, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Even though he was killed by the first Sith Lord he ever encountered, in the same movie he debuted in, he did set the course for the rest of the saga. Even though it may be a mistake he would have regretted, he did discover Anakin and brought him to the Jedi temple, leaving Anakin's mom to later die on Tattooine, causing Anakin's first to drift ever closer to the Dark Side, and later reject the Dark Side and bring balance to the force. Without Qui Gon, there would be no story! He also was a rebellious Jedi who had very unorthodox methods and beliefs, and he ultimately became one of the most powerful and knowledgeable force users ever, even after death. If it wasn't for him, Obi Wan wouldn't have became a ghost and been able to tell Luke Skywalker to go to Degobah. That's another reason Qui Gon is very important to the ...more

My opinion is he's one of the bests. He could of easily defeated Maul. He let Maul win to teach Obi-Wan a lesson, which Obi-Wan repeated for Luke. I'm not saying he's the number one most powerful Jedi but I am saying he's definitely wise, extremely smart for studying the Living Force, and there's no denying that he's a badass. He's a maverick who does what he needs to do, even if it means disobeying the Jedi council if he feels it's the right thing to do. Without Qui-Gon, Luke wouldn't of been able to become a Jedi so rapidly, nor would any Jedi have knowledge of becoming one with the force after death. Once again, just my opinion.

Maybe he was killed in his first movie duel, but a jedi's power is not only about strength. It's also about wisdom, knowledge and the ability to teach.

The Contenders
11 Darth Revan Revan is a fictional character in BioWare's Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic video game. The character may be either male or female, though Revan is canonically male and follows the game's light-side path. He also has his own Old Republic book in which he is a male human, turned Jedi, and turned ...read more.

This guy is kinda overrated but still pretty strong.

He was by far the strongest for his time, but Yoda, Sidious, Rey, and the Skywalker trio (Luke, Vader, and Kylo) are far above him.

Luke would still defeat this guy in like 10 seconds flat if he used 100% of his power.

Time and time again Revan is said to be "the force itself" and "the epitome of Jedi and Sith power" He wiped out the armies of the mandalorians and then began The First Jedi Purge. The Jedi were so afraid of him that they laid a trap to erase his memory (this was there last hope since revan had pushed them to the brink of extinction). Revan was turned to the light and them proceeded to wipe out the sith empire he had created, killing hundreds of sith apprentices, Warriors, and lords. He then took on Darth Malak. Darth malak had used te starforge to capture the force power of almost 100 Jedi. He then added this to his own power. Revam still defeated him. Revan then went on to combat the sith emperor, darth vitiate, who had destroyed an entire planet in order to gain the power of IMMORTALITY! Revan bested him in combat (HE BESTED SOMEONE WHO is IMMORTAL! ). Revan was captured though, only because he was betrayed during his battle with the emperor. He was placed in ...more

Revan had experienced both the light and dark side which very few had. He defeated Madalore the Ultimate and nearly killed The Emporer who (I personally think was th real most powerful) ruled the entire Empire and all of the sith. His connection the force was incredible, likely on par with Yoda. He was one of the best strategists in the Old Republic Era, if not ever. Very few (likely no) others this list can do any of these things, which proves that he is easily among most powerful/skilled Jedi or Sith ever.

Darth Revan is not the most powerful Jedi/Sith to exist, no sources can prove otherwise yet. However, his military strategies remove the need for even Battle Meditation, he has a deep understanding of both the Light and the Dark side that no other Jedi or Sith is known to have, he has a vast array of skills other than force-use and lightsaber skills and would be a tremendous asset to both the Jedi or the Sith, as he has proved. So overall power no, but overall skill, yes.

12 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 a secretive order with one master and one apprentice. The apprentice would learn everything ...read more.

Darth Bane was the first unite in his being the knowledge of the dark side and the power of the dark side of the force.

Also he was the most intuitive/receptive of his time to the way of the dark side, which prove his powerful and profound connection with the force.

He negated a full legion of sith, just because he felt inside it self the power of the dark side. That's awesome.

He knew he was right, unlike Vader, and this gives him the power to break the ice and to negate the current sith ideology.

Darth Bane stopped at nothing for knowledge of the dark side. Survived the thought bomb. All while learning it on his own through the neglect of the sith academy. Bane is by far the strongest physically hands down.

He did not create the rule of two he got it from a holocron that was recorded by Darth Revan. He wiped out the sith through the use of the thought bomb. If you want to know more read "Darth Bane: Path of Destruction".

He is Sithari, legendary Sith who could turn livings to ashes with his lighting. One who bring new era to he Sith and person who starts a way to destroy jedi order.

13 Satele Shan

Are you kidding me not should be this low on the list she should be number 3 not 14 you guys are crazy she is the second most powerful jedi ever. The only jedi that would defeat her is Yoda.

She was the Jedi Grand Master during the Old Republic era and had tremendous connection with the force linked to her mother Bastila Shan and the all powerful Revan. Enough said about that.

Is she even in an episode?

She was more powerful than yoda

14 Jek-14

well, I like lego, I like star wars, so what's not to like about good old jek? He can defeat yoda AND mace windu. I still wanna vote for yoda tho, as he's not rly a jedi. U might think he is, but not rly

He defeated yoda, mace windu, darth sidious, count dooku, and 30 other versions of himself. I guess the original is the best. He partly trained luke skywalker and saved the " group of hero's " countless times. This is why he should be in the top 10.

He is an awesome character, and a badass in a fight. Man, if I saw he was on the list I would have voted for him. Oh well... Also, he was created by Lego, and I think he looks really cool.

In Lego Star Wars, the Yoda Chronicles, episode 1, The Phantom Clone, he took on Yoda and Mace Windu at the same time and won. - Elias35

15 Shaak Ti

" Shaaki TI is one of the wises jedi ever. She was able to make wise decisions for many clones and the jedi Order. However she did have her faults. Like being one of the closes jedi to clones and yet she didn't except Order 66. Not all Jedi are perfect and honestly. I would have placed her around 11.

Shaak Ti survived order 66 and was regarded as one of the most cunning Jedi as referred to by master Kenobi, she defended kimino and shili ( excuse the spelling), fought on geionisis,she had suspions about the microchip in the clones brains, she was the jedi consular and a esteemed member of the jedi high council, and personally my favourite Jedi..

Shaak Ti was remembered as the guardian of Felucia, the hero and pride of Shili, and best female jedi in history, considered the fourth most powerful member of the jedi council, and a wise jedi, besides being considered by Anakin a great and true master jedi.

Actually shaak ti was not killed by general grevious she met her end on the planet felucia ( a jungle world quite interesting and a very force strong planet) her death is not included in the actual movies hence forth in my onion did not happen. there is evidence to support this theory that she did in fact survive order 66 and died some time around 3 BBY by starkiller...best female jedi you bet your arse ;-)

16 General Grievous General Grievous is a fictional character and antagonist in the Star Wars franchise. He served as the Supreme Commander of the Confederacy of Independent Systems' Droid Armies during the Clone Wars.

He is literally the strongest non-force user (I know, Boba and Jango are also good) because he beat the crap out of jedi and almost killed Obi Wan

The reason this guy's a beast? I'll let you dwell on this. He has no force powers. All his Jedi opponents DO have force powers. His fellow Sith friends have force powers, and those Jedi aren't shy to use those powers on Grievous. Regardless of that fact he's killed skilled Jedi left and right and as such is bar none the most powerful character in Star Wars who can't use the force.

4 arms, 4 lightsabers... Enough said

Killed many jedi. Trained by dooku. Nealy killed obi wan. Led the droid army. Survived a bomb being put in his ship and he is an all round badass. What else can I say.

17 Galen Marek/Starkiller 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 ...read more.

Um how is he not 1? He destroyed vader, beat sidious, (he was unwilling to kill sidious, ending in his death but still) He was the most powerful force user in the light and dark sides of the force, developed at least 3 different types of force lightning that no one else could use, he brought down a star destroyer, his clone fought a much more powerful vader later and still won, he has a reverse handgrip that looks badass, and he crush and incinerate beings at his will. 13? , really?

Come on starkiller is incomparable to everyone in this list I mean seriously luke is n3 starkiller pwned vader twice kicked palpatine's butt in the "what if" expansion of SWTFU he killed obi wan and defeated his force ghost then he whooped luke putting that aside he can make star fleets fall from the sky his combat and force skills are easily the best both in the dark and the light side GALEN for the win

The son of two jedi, brutally trained in the ways of the sith from a very young age, can out duel and out force sidesideous, vader, and yoda, brings down a stat destroyer, crushes tie fighters, vaporizes storm troopers, can out duel all Jedi who's styles were recorded recorded (with The proxy droid) how is he not number one

Come on guys, ill only say one thing.

"He lowers his stance, relieved the monster shambling out is a MEASLY rancor"
-Force unleashed 2

A MEASLY RANCOR? Even some of the more powerful jedi had trouble with rancors.

After that, he defeated a gorog, which is as big as a city.

Did I mention he jumped HUNDREDS OF FEET to a city from a tram.

Enough said.

18 Darth Malgus

Darth malgus killed the old emperor and slayed many jedi he is much better than any sith I have seen (apart from a few other) he should be in at least the top five

He led the attack on the jedi temple. One of the most skilled Sith Lords, with his lightsaber and the force. Some state he is more powerful than the emperor.

He's legit, only one with balls enough to take out the jedi temple During his era of sith, which would of wiped the floor with palpatine and vader!

He is one of 3 people to master force lightning, he also killed 3 jedi with his force lightning. He killed satele shan and countless other famous jedi. He lead the successful raid on the jedi temple were he killed many jedi along with one of the head masters of the jedi order.

19 Jacen Solo/Darth Caedus

I don't see how he isn't even in the list? I know he was killed by his sister in the end but only because of bombs fetts training and being distracted by lukes mind games and the fact his daughter was about to be assassinated. Luke even said defeating him would mean he had to turn to the dark side! With some of the people on that list it's a madness haha he was a bad ass even as a Jedi, but as a sith he had the power to live up to his grandads potential if he hadn't become robo-vader. I mean the guy could flow walk? Who's gonna beat him in a saver fight really?

Jacen the would be an excellent villain in a star wars film. Imagine him vs Han Solo. Father vs son. Just like Luke and Vader.

I'm currently reading a book with him in it (before he was evil), and I thought he was a great character. Only now did I realize he became a Sith in the end. WHY JACEN, WHY?! - RiverClanRocks

Jacen is a character who everyone felt sorry for when he turned away from the light side. His character probably laid the groundwork for Kylo Ren.

20 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,

Hey at least he fought of for about 10 more seconds then those other jedi such as Agar Kolar and some other guy.
And also is awesome ill tell you that and how is he not in the top 20 at least. Last thing he lead the clones when Count Dooku was in that sphere in Attack of the Clones. - Marinerboy11

I don't know what he is but I like him. He holds the lightsaber and fights with it unlike any other jedi. Also you gotta love his smile.

He is not as recognized as he should be... I feel like he should've survived the clone wars.

Awesome Jedi! Definitely deserves his own movie

21 Ki-Adi-Mundi

He has a nice head

He was the only Jedi that was able to put up a fight during order 66 he was also personally trained by yoda n has been on the Jedi high council since the first movie

He was so wise that he could locate an enemy's weakness in second. Plus, he was the only jedi besides Mace Windu to wield a purple lightsaber.

In revenge of the sith he has a blue light saber not purple

22 Saesee Tiin

Apparently he was the best jedi pilot. Shame that he couldn't defend from the emperor.

His dick was huge!

23 Rey Rey is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by British actress Daisy Ridley. First appearing as the central character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey is a scavenger who was left behind on the planet Jakku when she was a child, and later becomes involved with the Resistance's ...read more.

Palpatine's granddaughter. Extremely powerful, but couldn't hold a candle to Kylo during their second duel. The only reason she beat him the first time was because Kylo got injured from Chewbacca's crossbow thing. That same weapon blow holes through storm troopers.

She actually did what only Obi-Wan has done. Beat a Sith lord while in a padawan state (in training), moreover she was merely adapted to the force...She had no clue, just did things out of instict and anger.
On the other hand Kylo, even as sith lord, wasn't as powerful as the older sith lords...far too unstable and it was stated that he was still in training.
I believe she will be even more powerful than we expect and the same goes for Kylo Ren...

With no training, Rey manages to master the Force and defeats the powerful Kylo Ren. The Force Awakens is saying that the Force has awaken in her. If she gets training to be a Jedi by Luke, she could turn out to be the strongest Jedi ever.

Rey is super awesome. With no training at all, she masters many Force techniques. She also has a tragic past, but I still wonder who her parents are. Maybe Luke will reveal that "I am your father" Heh heh.
