Best Lightsaber Colors

The Top Ten
1 Green

It's a close one, but a lot of the most powerful Jedi out there have one. It's only appropriate that Luke eventually crafts one. I mean, we've got Yoda and Qui-Gon, both of whom are some of my favorites.

A green-colored lightsaber represents great Force power abilities. It is a very great advantage for a Jedi if they have a powerful Force ability - but never use it for offense, only for defense and knowledge.

Powerful Force users are Luke Skywalker, Yoda, Kit Fisto, and Qui-Gon Jinn. The best user of the green lightsaber is Grand Master Luke Skywalker.

2 Blue

Going with unique colors like black or orange is cool in its own right. But there's a reason blue is a popular hero's color - it works. Look at Superman: he has red and yellow like all other super-powered people, but he's one of the only ones with any substantial amount of blue.

Luke Skywalker started with a blue lightsaber, then went to greenas he matured and gained knowledge and power. But if he hadn't accepted that blue lightsaber at the very beginning, the whole Star Wars saga would have been drastically different.

3 Red

Red seems to be the optimal choice, as a lot of people would rather be the bad guy than the good one. Villains have better character development, better costumes, and better death scenes. They also have better fan bases at most times. And as a plus, who wouldn't want to be like the ever-so-famous Darth Vader!

Red is wielded by Darth Vader and all the cool Sith.

General Grievous: Am I a joke to you?

I mean, I would love to be on the dark side. Plus, red is my favorite color.

4 Purple

The purple lightsaber is the way it is because you can only get it by using the light and dark side. Double the Force, double the awesome. Plus, it looks sick.

Purple is a combination of light and dark, so it's inherently cool. Also, Revan - enough said.

The perfect color for walking the line between Jedi and Sith.

5 Yellow

Sentinel could be a combination of guardian and consular, but also a better combination of both.

It appeared in The Rise of Skywalker as Rey's lightsaber at the end of the film.

6 Black

Most lightsabers shine white in the middle of the blade and have their color as an aura around it. Black has a black center and a white aura - it's reverse!

Darth Plagueis the Wise's black saber of darkness was made from concentrated antimatter. With something like that... well, all other Star Wars guys are dead and rotten.

It would complement my outfit and dark soul.

7 White

Only used by Imperial Knights, and one Imperial Knight went and became one of the best Sith Lords ever.

Not as cool as silver, but pretty far ahead of the rest, though.

It takes so much power to change the crystals from red to a pure white. This makes it very powerful.
