The Top Ten

1 Master Yoda Master 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.

He May Be Old But WOW! He Is Quick, Powerful, Badass, Very Skilled!

Easily number one if he was in his glory days he could have creamed the empire.

The most powerful Jedi Master and the most wisest. He confronts Darth Sideous and Count Dooku. -

2 Anakin Skywalker Anakin Skywalker

Really? Only third place? Anakin/Darth Vader has been proven in all of the movies to be incredibly strong in the force. In Episode 1, not only does he destroy a whole droid control ship at he age of nine, but they specifically say that his midi-chlorian account is even higher than yoda's which already means he should be put above yoda. He was able to quickly double in strength to kill Count Dooku in Episode 3 and was able to survive being burned long enough for the emperor to put him in his suit. In Return of the Jedi, he was strong enough to lift up the emperor with one hand and throw him into the abyss while being struck by lightning. I'd say that is pretty powerful.

The Chosen One who becomes Darth Vader later in the film but still brings balance to the force. He becomes the youngest Jedi ever to become a Jedi Knight as has talented piloting skills. -

Lol we all know he's the most powerful in the book rots by Patricia darth Sidious think he will be FAR more powerful than anyone else

Although he was powerful and skilled he did not have the power to realize he was being tricked by the dark side

3 Darth Sidious (Supreme Chancellor Palpatine) Darth Sidious (Supreme Chancellor Palpatine)

He alone hatched the entire plot to not only destroy the entire jedi order but to also enslave and control the known galaxy... and succeeded! If that doesn't put you in the number one spot then nothing does

The Lord of all Sith during the Star Wars film. His power was s great that no jedi could detect his true shape. In "Revenge of the Sith", even Yoda couldn't defeat him and barely escaped. -

Yoda couldn't beat him and he had to retreat. If yoda didn't retreat Sidious would have killed him.

Defeated mace windu and yoda. enough said. - silky_milky

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 has been in every single Star Wars movie, even the force awakens (you can hear his voice in Rey's vision). He killed Darth maul and general grievous, fought against Jango fett twice, and ended in a heroic way, sacrificing himself to give Luke time to escape the Death Star. Anakin even said he's as powerful as mace windu and as wise as yoda.

He defeated Vader in his prime, General Grievous, and Darth Maul. He should be ranked higher

I thought he'd be higher than that. The spinoff might do that

Obi then got killed by Vader

5 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.

The most skilled swordsman in all the Jedi. He is the only Jedi from the group that tried to arrest Palpatine who survived before Anakin came and messed everything up. -

Why is Mace behind Sidious? Mace Windu beat Darth Sidious. He only died because Anakin came in and killed him.

6 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.

WHAT?!? LUKE IS IN 8TH PLACE! HE SHOULD BE IN 1ST! Luke is most powerful... not just Jedi... but Force user. OF ALL TIME! George Lucas said so himself.

How is he in 7th? He should be in 2nd!

It was George Lucas word that he should be the MOST POWERFUL JEDI OF ALL TIME!

Luke is better than count dooku he took down darth vader anddarth vader killed count dooku

7 Count Dooku Count Dooku

Count Dooku used to be a jedi before and he has swift graceful attacks and he attained the power of force lightning. He cuts Anakin's hand off, but he is killed later. -

He defeated Anakin and Obi-Wan at the same time and only was killed because Darth Sidious needed Anakin for his plans

I guess getting your hand cut off runs in the Skywalker family. - Anonymousxcxc

8 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.

He survived being cut in two, killed Qui Gon jin, his clone
Was actually able to brutally injure Darth Vader and he was
Actually survive a long time without any food or water

Darth Maul is boss. Hope he doesn't die in Rebels.

The weakest Sith in the series. He might look menacing with a double blade lightsaber but he is very weak. -

Why is he here. At number 8. He's weak.

The Contenders

11 Kylo Ren Kylo Ren Kyle Ren is a fictional Sith lord, who is strong with the Force . Kylo Ren commands the First Order with a temper as fiery as his unconventional lightsaber. His debut was in 2015's Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens

Eh, we shouldn't vote him up yet. His training isn't done and the only lightsaber battle he has fought in saw him at his weakest (mentally and physically), and against two incredibly angry people, might I add. - Donut

He's the evil one in The Force Awakens, using his planet weapon to destroy star systems, killing billions of people when their explosions hit them and their planets. - nelsonerica

Not very strong 1 lightning could kill him. His light sabre is really just a normal one that has 2 sides

His light saber skill stinks! His new force weapons are not new. Stopping lazer guns?
Vader already did it! He coudn't stop because
it is too close and it will mess up his system.
knowing other's mind? Jedis can do that.
fainting Rei? He just chocked her head and she fainted.
Seeing other's

12 Qui Gon Jin

Poor dude dies on the only film he appears. He was the master of Obi Wan and technically Anakin too. Not much information about him so I put him here -

He's my favorite. Because he's Liam Neeson for crying out loud!

13 Darth Vader

Vader= Anakin they are both number two. Please just vote for Anakin Vader isn't getting a lot of votes.

He and Anakin are the same person and Ezra Bridger shouldn't be higher than him. - Anonymousxcxc

Most powerful Everton Star Wars! And the Best character in Star Wars!

19 Abeloth

Abeoloth is EASILY the most powerful star wars character of all time, BUT:She is not a Jedi or a Sith. She is an entity of dark and light. - errrr

20 Ki-Adi-Mundi Ki-Adi-Mundi

He should be higher he is experienced in the force and is on the Jedi council
