Top Ten Sith Lords

The Top Ten

1 Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker

Come on Darth Vader is one of the most iconic and best villains of all time

He was also a jedi knight of the republic, apprentice to Obi Wan Kenobi (Jedi knight apprentice to Qui-Gon Jinn) he doesn't survive order 66, he was the one helped Darth Sidious to success order 66 by attacking the Jedi temple in planet Clruscant. But he died in the death star after he told Luke Skywalker to take of his mask... - Cocoy0706

He is basically a being consisting just of the force. Basically a force entity in human form.

"The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force."

2 Darth Sidious 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.

Gotta go with Sidious here.. he had a long evil plan and worked it to destroy the jedi. It was brilliant. He went untouched too and collected power around the galaxy.

cool

He almost killed every Jedi in "19 BBY" (year in star wars) because he was the supreme chancellor of the republic those days because each clone had obeyed the "order 66"... But Darth Sidious was killed by Darth Vader by dropping Darth Sidious off the death star... - Cocoy0706

He is the accumulation of all the sith power. He is all-powerful, and I have a theory he may be the third Sith'ari.

3 Darth Revan 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 so cool, cause he was first Jedi, then Sith, then Jedi again!

Without Revan Bane wouldn't of come up with the rule of two and would of never become the sith'ari. Revan was a top class Jedi and Sith. He should be on the top ten or at least eleven

My favorite with lord

Darth Bane's 'Rule of Two' was crafted from the philosophies of Revan. The Rule led to the eventual destruction of the Jedi Order and the Republic in 19 BBY. I rest my case.

4 Darth Nihilus Darth Nihilus

"He is a wound in the Force, more presence than flesh, and in his wake life dies… sacrificing itself to his hunger."

With from far the best Sith to these days around 2020. Darth Nihilus has impecable robes, clothes plus a face mask. The mysterious nature behind the characters does place Nihilus as one of the best Sith to grace the audience. An awesome turn of events for the Sith that starts with Darth Nihilus and then continues to Kylo Ren. Incredible attire and clutch skill put Nihilus on a high precipice. - iliescu

He was a force vampire. Force vampires feed on the force to make themselves stronger. He is virtually unbeatable

Is the best sith Lord ever

Trained as Darth Sidious's first apprentice, he serves as a Sith Lord and a master of wielding a double-bladed lightsaber.

He is not the most powerful, but he is the best in my opinion.

A badass sith who took the throne by his own hands

Darth Maul shouldn't be on this list. All he was was a lightsaber duelling Prodigy. He wasn't strong in the force.👎🏻

A lightsaber duelling prodigy but not very good with the force👎🏻

6 Darth Bane 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 am secretive order with one master and one apprentice. The apprentice would learn ...read more.

Created the rule of two and was the Sith'Sri.

Was the sith'ari and the dark lord of the sith responsible for creating the rule of two.. Died at 980 BBY at Ambria - Cocoy0706

7 Darth Traya

How isn't this #1. Traya is clearly the best sith. Her character is the most interesting and she isn't just someone who looks cool like Maul. - moore770

Extremely clever and could wield three lightsabers using the force. Saw Mace Windu,s death 4000 years before it happened.

8 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.

Amazing best at what he did

Good lightsaber duellist and brilliant with the force

9 Darth Malak Darth Malak Darth Malak is a Star Wars character. Malak is a Sith from the time of The Old Repbulic. He is the apprentice of Revan, and appears in Knights of the Old Republic

The best sith lord

He was a human sith lord had a red clothing and a metal mask covering his mouth.. But he died at 3,956 BBY. - Cocoy0706

He was the apprentice of Darth Revan and the master of Darth Bandon.

10 Darth Tyranus

He could defeat obi wan and rivaled Yoda

The Contenders

11 Darth Malgus Darth Malgus

Lead the sacking of Cotuscant and killed a lot of Jedi.

He was a sith lord in the old republic times.. He was the apprentice of Vindican (led the victorius recapture of the sith world Korriban) he attacked the Jedi temple but died several years after... - Cocoy0706

12 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 ...read more.

Well, he's not technically a sith, but he is cool...with his mask on.

Anger issues

13 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.

She didn't become a sith why is she on this list

14 Darth Sion

Held his decayed body together just with the force. That's some power. I believe he is on par with Darth Nihilus.

Or called as Lord of Pain who lived in the time of the old sith wars.. But died in 3951 BBY (planet Malachor) - Cocoy0706

15 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 ...read more.

He could manipulate midi- chlorians and make his loved ones immortal. He was also extremely clever and a good negotiater. He was the master of Darth Sidious.

16 Vindican

He was a decent Sith Lord but I don't think he should be on this list as there are multiple sith better than him.

The master of Darth Malgus.. He was not very powerful like his apprentice Darth Malgus.. But he was killed by Darth Malgus at 3,681 BBY - Cocoy0706

17 Darth Caedus/Jacen Solo

He fought and nearly beat Grandmaster Luke Skywalker. HE IS ON PAR WITH LUKE SKYWALKER! AMAZING!

Yes you will be asking who is he. His father Isis Han Solo and his mother is Leia Organa Solo... He turned against his family and friends, betraying his former principle and leading the Galactic alliance... He died at 41 BBY.. Lumiya (Darth Caedus' sith master) - Cocoy0706

Lol why is palpabitch at number 1? Get that overrated unpopular trash off this list.

18 General Grievous 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 wields 4 light sabers, enough said there.

Grievous isn't even a Sith - EmperorPalpatine

19 Savage Opress Savage Opress
20 Lord Vitiate

Longest living sith lord

Killed a ton of sith at a junior age with just a thought and single handed lay brought the sith to his control.

21 Darth Zannah

She is sexy, hot and pretty as hell.

She also killed Darth Bane, which is at the same level as killing Darth Sidious. This beautiful young woman is the most attractive girl in the Star Wars universe.

This is the most beautiful sith in the world. She is very easy to get attracted to and she is wonderful. Just like every girl in the world should be.

She killed Darth Bane, one of the best sith of all time.

22 Supreme Leader Snoke Supreme Leader Snoke
23 Darth Vectivus

True I think so too

The only sith to practice the dark side and remain a good man.

I hope Disney make him canon, but if they do they need preserve the character exactly the way he was.

24 Darth Krayt

Created the one sith order and abolished Darth Bane's Rule of two. What a guy!

25 Darth Talon Darth Talon
26 Darth Wyyrlok III
27 Darth Nihl
28 Darth Desolous Darth Desolous

Not so much for how cool he is, rather how cool he could be. It would be awesome if the new canon fleshed out his story.

29 Darth Tenebrous Darth Tenebrous
30 Marka Ragnos Marka Ragnos
31 Exar Kun Exar Kun

He wielded a double- bladed lightsaber and was strong in the force. After he died for the first time his soul went on and caused evil for a long time until finally he met his demise at the hands of the Jedi.

Also a dark lord of the sith... But died 2 times (3996, yavin 4 as a physical body and at 11 ABY at yavin 4 as a spirit - Cocoy0706

32 Darth Naga Sadow

I meant Naga Sadow

It's Naga Sadie, not Farth Naga Sadow. You kids know nothing about Star Wars.

33 Tulak Hord

Best lightsaber duellist of his time and powerful in the force.

34 Darth Millennial
35 Darth Nox
36 Fifth Brother Fifth Brother
37 Seventh Sister Seventh Sister
38 Eighth Brother Eighth Brother
