Top Ten Sith Lords

The Top Ten

1 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.

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...

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.

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.

2 Darth Vader Darth Vader is a Star Wars character and the main antagonist of the first three original Star Wars films and the main protagonist of the Star Wars prequel trilogy under his original name Anakin Skywalker. He had been trained as a Jedi but defected to the Sith lord and Galactic Chancellor Palpatine. ...read more.

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...

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."

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

3 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.

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

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.

This guy is so cool, cause he was first Jedi, then Sith, then Jedi again!

My favorite Sith Lord

4 Darth Nihilus

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.

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

Was a human male who reigned at as a dark lord of the sith during the era of strife... Died at 3951 BBY (ravager over planet telos)

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

5 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 ...read more.

His lightsaber has two blades. Good. Twice the pride, double the fall.

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

He was short so he had a smaller hit box.

6 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.

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

7 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 a secretive order with one master and one apprentice. The apprentice would learn everything ...read more.

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

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

8 Darth Tyranus 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.

Good lightsaber duellist and brilliant with the force

He could defeat obi wan and rivaled Yoda

Amazing best at what he did

The dude almost killed obey one. twice

9 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

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

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

The best sith lord

10 Darth Malgus

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...

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

The Contenders

11 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.

12 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)

13 Darth Caedus

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)

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

14 Savage Opress
15 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

16 Lord Vitiate

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

Longest living sith lord

17 Supreme Leader Snoke Supreme Leader Snoke is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. He is a CGI character voiced and performed by Andy Serkis.

this dudes a joke

18 Darth Krayt

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

19 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.

20 Darth Wyyrlok III
21 Darth Tenebrous
22 Darth Vectivus

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.

23 The Grand Inquisitor
24 Darth Talon
25 Darth Nihl
