Darth Vader was the original dark lord for Star Wars. Darth Vader ruled with both fear and aggression. Originally Anakin Skywalker a young Jedi who was then seduced by the dark side of the force by Chancellor Palpatine/Darth Sidious. Vader had his limbs cut off by his jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi leaving ...read more.


As have being created purely by the force and having all the rage and anger that his childhood and young adult ages encoraged him to have, he possessed a lot of raw power, the most by any species ever recorded. He was very unstable and he feared the future. His fear led to the lack of a clear vision which was the perfect thing to someone who already manipulated the entire galaxy and he let him being controlled. His raw power could not be fully exploited because of the Jedi code and his lack of knowledge at his youg stages and his mechanical body could not fully take advantage of the force which is organic. The limitless nature of the Sith and his know vast knowledge of the force as Vader, made him the ultimate weapon of destruction. In the original trilogy he does not show his full power but in the expanded universe, which is no longer canon, he shows his full power, the guy can levitate and hover around using the force. In the new marvel comics we learn a lot more about him.

By far Anakin because he has the most midichlorian count and he never reached his potential being young and then later seriously handicapped and barely alive. So basically the suit is life support and he is not his full self. He can not shoot lightning through the mechanical hand as other sith do as the suit is not force sensitive. So he is like a crippled sith. Also that Revan in the new Jedi series is so weak I don't even under stand how he got on the strong list when he could not even beat an untrained force sensitive girl that any apprentice could kill. But of course the new people making these new movies are not intelligent or they would not make such obvious mistakes

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?

Darth vader could have killed luke easily many times luke even says he could have in the 6th film but darth vader didn't want to because it was his son and darth sidious wanted him on the dark side

Anakin as literally BORN from the force, he's the legitimate messiah-child of the star wars universe, born of a virgin mother impregnated by the force itself! He IS the chosen one. That alone makes him automatically the #1 strongest in the star wars universe, as Yoda himself said

"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!."

Well, although he never did get there, so technically the crown belongs to Yoda, if we're to believe George Lucas, if Anakin had Chosen One-ed it good side he would have been able to beat Yoda with one hand tied behind his back, taking a piss. Yoda and the rest of the Jedi temple that is. But that never happened, so guess it's Yoda.

"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.

Anakin/Vader was the strongest having the highest midi-chlorian count but never reached his potential being young and later handicapped and stuck in a suit. If he had a few more years as a whole person and not mostly machine as Vader was he would have easily beat any Jedi or sith. Even darth sidious said he would become stronger than both himself and Yoda. Also he is bigger and stronger than Yoda. That was Yodas biggest weakness his size. And going back to the midi-chlorian count Anakin has more than Yoda or anybody else as far as that goes. He was actually created from the Force itself from what his mother said having no father which makes him more unique and the only one. So if he would have made it to a mature age with no injuries and trained to his full potential he could have battled Mace Windu, Yoda, Darth Sidious, Count Dooku and Obi-Wan and still come out on top to victory

Vader was still capable of reaching his full potential but he never did because of his state of mind. Even Palpatine stated this, Vader just didn't overthrow him because he was everything he thought he had left. Also he never really left the light, just imagine how powerful he would've been if he did.

Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader was the chosen one and besides Emperor Palpatine said himself Anakin/Vader would become more powerful than Yoda and himself and besides ANAKIN IS THE CHOSEN ONE and he never even got to his full potential

The Star Wars films are about the story of the chosen one anakin skywalker how he was fathered by the force, trained as a Jedi, how he submitted to the dark side and became darth vader and his final redemption when he fulfilled the prophecy by destroying the sith

Dam anakin is the most powerful at full potential he would be able to do anything the most powerful force user ever he will surpass anyone even luke he could kill luke at his full with one hand and on one Leg with his eyes closet and he is luke on steroids

Darth Vader is very powerful very wise he uses the force choke as often as needed and for that reason he's very feared and respected. Anakin was foolish young and over looked the councils advice

Anakin easily could've become more powerful than anyone b4 him he just never reached his full potential but think of it this way sure he lost 2 obi one just because he lost his temper and obi one stayed calm but Anakin did kill almost every jedi alive at that point espcially if you read George Lucas's books the other jedi's never stood a chance he slaughtered them...

As Anakin Sky he was the most powerful jedi in the movie, he lost vs Obi-won because he was in wrong position. But as Darth Vader he can't even move in the armor, he attacks slowly and not same active/fast as Anakin

Anakin beat Dooku who was the only other person than Yoda that could spar with Mace Windu.

Anakin Skywalker is the most powerful jedi ever. Even obi-wan say that anakin has became a better jedi he could ever wish. Anakin was the chosen one, he is the chosen one, and always stay the chosen one

Darth Vader is the chosen one for crying out loud he is supposed to be the most powerful force being of all time and it's obvious his force power exceeds even that of Yoda

The chosen one is the best, enough said

I believe anakin is the most skilled and most powerful jedi. Anakin's connection to the force is strong. Anakin is a skilled lightsaber user and is smart in combat.

Hands down...THE BEAST. His suit held him back and the dark force pretty much kept him alive. Put him in a advanced suit that didn't hinder him he would slaughter anyone. Yes, even Yoda. As a rookie Anakin defeated Dookie with ease. Stood toe to toe against OB1(who should have beat him easily since he trained him since a little kid) and only lost because of overconfidence caused by just recently turned to dark side. He evened the score with only 1 arm left 20yrs later

This guy was literally the force itself. Conceived by midichlorians he had the greatest concentration of them in his blood cells than any before him. You can see why Sideous was so angry when he found Vader on Mostafar because the strongest force user of all time had just had his potential halved. Even so he was still more powerful than any before him. The galaxy was more scared of him than the emperor. Sideous confessed that Vader was stronger than Yoda and him. As a Jedi the council was scared of him because they knew he was stronger than all of them. He was the greatest war hero in the Republic alongside Obi-Wan. He killed Count Dooku and Obi-Wan and defeated Luke with one hand and killed Sideous without a lightsaber. He was the best star pilot in the galaxy during the clone wars. He went to the Jedi temple with a patalion of clones and destroyed the entire Jedi order which was supposed to be impossible. During the early days of the empire he went and hunted down all the Jedi who ...more

The higher the Mido-Chlorian Count, the stronger the Force Sensitive is, and would be with the Force. How can Anakin not be the most powerful Jedi of all time? Yoda may be the most liked, and most powerful, but Anakin's father was literally the force itself. In addition to that he was the chosen one, and had the highest Chlorian count of all time period. Anakin never got to live up to his full potential do to his attitude, and wit "as Obi-Wan" would claim, and his manipulation over in the Dark Side caused him to be deemed just as "powerful" as oppose to the most powerful of all time.

Anakin is the most powerful Jedi and had destroyed sith lords. Anakin is the chosen one and the most powerful Jedi ever in Star Wars history.

Vader's force choke is very powerful. Although he doesn't have sith lightning, he is still the best sith and jedi ever.
