Most Powerful Jedi and Sith Lords From the Star Wars Movies
Who were the top ten baddest and skilled Jedi and Sith in the Star Wars films? Find out in this list.

The Top Ten

1 Anakin Skywalker Anakin Skywalker Anakin Skywalker is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. He appears in the original trilogy as a main and pivotal antagonist serving the Galactic Empire, while his past as Anakin Skywalker and the story of his corruption are the focus of the prequel trilogy.

Anakin is the best Jedi of all time and also the main character of the entire saga he should be number one on every list he has the strongest lightsaber skills and the strongest force skills there is no one stronger

Sideous himself stated that Vader was stronger than him or yoda

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. -

2 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 is the grand master

I like him because he's fast

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.

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

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.

He could destroy an entire planet using rage and can create a black hole.

4 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.


5 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

He is a super jedi master, who trains Luke Skywalker after the Republic falls. He defeats Anakin in a confrontation on Mustafar and slays General Grevious. -

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.

Luke is the chosen one, he is objectively the most powerful Jedi in the saga.

Should be number 1 or at least number 2, but I get it he didn't get a cool fight, like Vader in Episode 3 or the Rogue One, we didn't get to see him fight since the original trilogy which wasn't about cool fight sequences, until Last Jedi where he is real old - germshep24

Luke should be #1. The sequel trilogy sucks!

I can tell that people who don’t vote for Yoda or Luke are not very familiar with the legends material.

7 Count Dooku 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 more.

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

He is darth tyranus! Also one of my favorite sith

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. Darth Maul first appeared in Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace, and has also appeared in The more.

This guy is not weak. He killed a Jedi Master when he was an apprentice, survived being cut in two and survived being attacked by Darth Sidious himself. - MagmaFox

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. -

9 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,

Don't worry fisto, I care for you not like OTHER people

Best Jedi ever

Kit fisto sucks.

10 General Grevious

He managed to kill not one, but 4 Jedi, without the use of the force. His saber skills are seemingly unmatched and the emperor has stated repeatedly that he was stronger than dooku, and that if grievous could use the force, he may have had a chance to kill sidious.

General Grevious is no Jedi nor Sith but he wields four lightsabers he wins from killing Jedi. He is defeated by Obi Wan Kenobi. -

He shouldn't be on the most powerful jedi and sith page? why not? oh yeaH! because he isn't either!

Fab favorite non force user

The Contenders

11 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!

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!

Needs to be a lot higher.

13 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. Ren's real identity is Ben Solo, the son of Han Solo and Princess Leia. He was trained more.

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

Who the hell is this guy? The triple lightsaber guy? - Anonymousxcxc

14 Ahsoka Tano Ahsoka Tano Ahsoka Tano is a character in the Star Wars franchise. Introduced as the Padawan apprentice of Anakin Skywalker, she is a central protagonist of both the 2008 animated film Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the subsequent TV series.

How she is beating Plo Koon.. - errrr

How is Asoka less then Ventress.

15 Revan Revan

Coolest mask. Awesome fighting style. Dank purple lightsaber. Kicked Mandalorian ass. 'enough said

What? he should be WAYYY higher on this list! - riki1234

16 Ezra Bridger Ezra Bridger



Vader will kill him. Idiot.

Should be number lowest but seriously he and Kanan will die, or how will Luke be the last Jedi.

17 Asajj Ventress Asajj Ventress Asajj Ventress is a fictional character from the Star Wars franchise during the Clone Wars, appearing in the Clone Wars micro-series, and in The Clone Wars film and television series.

Whatever happened to her?

18 Plo Koon Plo Koon

He found ashoka tano and would have survived order 66 if he was on the ground

He is so awesome he's great!

My favourite jedi and he's part of the high council. Look's terrifying pluse cool

Not a single word in the movie but from EU and TCW we know he is very powerful

19 Rey 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 more.

I think that she is one of the best but people say she is not because she is not trained but she is going to be trained by Luke and he is really high on this list

20 Even Piell Even Piell

He looked like a badass

21 Ki-Adi-Mundi Ki-Adi-Mundi

Biggest brain ever but higher

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


22 Snoke (Supreme Leader) Snoke (Supreme Leader)

Snoke is the supreme leader of the First Order, he ordered General Hux order the troopers to fire the weapon.

23 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

24 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.

26 place that's wrong how is he less than kyloren

25 Aayla Secura Aayla Secura

She should be higher rank.

26 Darth Nihilus Darth Nihilus

Darth Nihilus (aka The Lord of Hunger) was a human male, alive during the time of the Mandalorian Wars. His family was killed in the conflict and he was left a "wound in the force" with his endless hunger for force energies. His hunger got worse and worse until Darth Traya taught him to use the force to absorb the energies from ENTIRE PLANETS and invited him into the Sith Triumvirate on Malachor V. He eliminated Traya along with Darth Sion, absorbed another planet, trained an apprentice named Visas Marr, and was slain by her on a ship over the planet Taris.

27 Qi'ra
28 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.

Non-cannon, but would be very high if he was. - errrr

He is fake though

He defeated Shaak-Ti, Darth Vader, Chancelor Palpatine (Darth Siddios) and he knows the force almost better than anyone and his master who betrayed him Darth Vader but after that Galen became a Jedi and defeated Vader

Galen Marek should be number one because
1.Darth sidious admited that one day he and him be rivals
2.He defeated darth vader and sidious
3.You must be blind to see that galen marek beat two of the most powerful sith lords of all time
but seriously if Galen marek hadn't died he would've destroyed darth sidious and qui gon jins prophecy would've been wrong

29 The Father

The father is not a jedi or sith. - errrr

30 Oppo Rancisis Oppo Rancisis

nope - riki1234

He looks totally awesome and he is a concil member.
