Top 10 Greatest Jedi
Obi- Wan Kenobi is the fundamental Jedi of the Rise of the Empire Era. His main focus is on lightsaber combat, his most used force ability is the push. His main clothing is basically what all Jedi Guardians wear. He is a form 3 lightsaber combatant, focusing primarily on defense, but throwing in moves from shi-cho, Ataru, and Niman from time to time. His ability as a force user is average, and his lightsaber combat is good known as the greatest form 3 practitioner of the era, but compared to the best of the era he wasn't as a impressive with raw skill. His most impressive attribute was giving himself over to the force and putting his complete faith in it.He is my 9th favorite Jedi of his era, and I believe him to be the 18th strongest Jedi of his era.
Of course yoda is #1, everyone in the jedi order with great skill is labeled a master, yoda is the only jedi grandmaster in the order. He has been teaching the jedi way for over 800 years, please don't be the the only idiot that thinks anyone else has more mastery of the force then the grandmaster himself... Please...don't do it. Yoda is 1, the rest can fight for second.
Personally, my top 7 are Yoda, Obi Wan, Mace Windu, Revan, Plo koon, Kit Fisto, Ki-Adi Mundi. Sorry no annikan skywalker on my list, the way I see it, if you can't fight the dark side, you don't belong. Top 3 on the sith list though as darth vader.
Greatest Jedi of all time. He defeated General Grievous--who wielding 4, FOUR, lightsabers, Darth Maul, and Anakin. He trained Anakin and Luke, arguably two of the most powerful Jedis. Not to mention he's one of the very, very few Jedi who survived Order 66. Obi-Wan lived on Tatooine for about 20 years to watch over Luke and save the galaxy. How many Jedis--beside Yoda--could have that in their resume? Obi-Wan doesn't hide his feeling, but he doesn't stick by them completely all the time either. He makes the wisest decisions. Like Anakin said himself, "He's as wise as Master Yoda, and as powerful as Master Windu. Obi-Wan Kenobi is just plain Awesome!
As Anakin described him, he's as wise as master yoda and as powerful as master windu. Aside from yoda he was the only Jedi to survive the clone trooper attack. He beat both the great Jedi murderer, general grievous (great being the one that fought 6 Jedi at once), as well as the Sith Lord/assassin Darth maul. He trained both the Jedi that brought balance to the force and went out on his own terms to successfully continue his training of Luke and continue down the path of bringing balance to the force. No Jedi can compare
He was right. Size matters not. Yoda is exactly what a Jedi Master should be. He's wise and understanding, and prefers to find a peaceful solution whenever possible.
Most powerful. Obi wan shouldn't be above him. He is the wisest Jedi ever and one of the strongest ever. He had 900 years to grow his power. He only lost to the senate because the senate had the high ground. Also the fact he didn't underestimate the high ground proves how wise he is. He disarmed the senate. Obi wan's best feat is defeating anakin. Yoda's best feat is disarming the senate who killed 2 jedi in a couple of seconds. Obi wan survived order 66 only because he and his lizard had the high ground over Cody yoda survived because he sensed the clones were about to kill him so is therefore stronger in the force. Even ki adi mundi sensed order 66 but obi wan couldn't. Yoda beat dooku who could penetrate obi was force shields so therefore he could use the force to drag obi wan off the high ground. I get Luke turned vader back to the light but only because he's his son so vader cared about him otherwise he couldn't have been able to do it. Yoda wasn't the in charge of the Jedi order ...more
Yoda makes Sidious scared as hell in one short fight through a basic force push.
Trained practically everyone in the Jedi Order for the past hundred years due to his old age. No him, none of the people below can even be qualified to be on this list.
He is a Jedi who never fell to the Dark Side even after hundreds of years whereas Anakin thought he could save Padme and fell to the Dark Side thanks to Sidious.
Only weakness of Yoda - Force technique too slow but very powerful due to him being a consular and not requiring it to be quick and effective.
He's the grandmaster like how could he not be greater than obi wan. He's far wiser than anakin cause he knew he couldn't beat palps when palps had the high ground. He beat dooku in 40 seconds for comparison obi wan gets beaten by Dooku in 35 seconds even though Dooku even gave obi wan time to do better. Yoda trained 20,000 jedi. Obi wan trained 2 jedi, one is an absolute failure who could be convinced to defy the Jedi code and kill an unarmed old man just cause a politician said do it(anakin).
Agreed. Obi Wan suffered through losing his master, his love interest, (clonewars, Satine) and many of the Jedi he cared for yet he still didn't snap. However, a more powerful jedi who should be able to controll going to the dark side more snapped because his mom died and when he thought his wife was going to die. In the end, he killed Padmae anyway, and Dooku really wasn't that impressive for those who bring that up because he could have just captured him, but nooo. Go against the jedi order because of what the chancellor says. Talk about peer pressure. And besides, it was really Obi Wan who trained him and practically raised him, and then he just goes and stabs him in the back. Real strong jedi guys. Obi Wan even admits Anakin was like a brother to him, and Anakin just keeps trying to kill him.
Anakin Skywalker is known, unfortunately, as the chosen one and, when he was a jedi, was known as a rising star, and the hero of the Republic.He is a form 5 combatant, Djem So, meaning he uses power strikes mainly in his combat. He was known as a lightsaber prodigy, even as a padawan was considered one of the greatest lightsaber practitioners in the order. He has proven himself much stronger in this practice then his former Master Obi-wan and has defeated Count Dooku, who before he left the Order was only second to Yoda.As a force user he was very much average in the his usage of the force. Used mainly to amplify his strength, reflexes, and speed. His use of telekinetic abilities didn't mature until after he became Vader, and use pushes were average for a Jedi Knight of his caliber.He would be in my favorite 20 jedi of his era, and is in the top 5 combatants in the order at the time.
If I have to say who is the powerful jedi of star wars, I say Anakin Skywalker. He is the chosen one; born from the force. He will bring balance in the force. Sure many jedi have great ability, like Kenobi, Yoda, Windu, Revan, ecc... But only anakin bring balance in the force, and he is the only jedi who became a ghost of force without learning the power from Qui-Gon Jinn (yoda and Kenobi have to learn this power). Nothing more to say!
He killed count dooku with ease once he was a Jedi. While obi-wan would have been killed by dooku if it wasn't for anakin. Obi-wan may have defeated anakin but it was once he was darth vader, and you can tell at that time anakin/darth vader didn't have a clear mind, and was in conflict with himself.. Which probably kept him from fighting at his full potential.
Windo is considered the best Jedi fighting with a lightsaber. He was the most powerful saber combatant while Yoda was the most powerful with his force powers. Windo even invented his own lightsaber combat style that was so aggressive, it was dangerous for a Jedi to use. Other Jedi who utitlized his style ended up going over to the Dark side. Too bad they used old Samuel Jackson to play him on screen as you never truly saw his prowess with the saber on screen.
Mace Windu was second only to Yoda in the order at the time, and is arguably just as strong a lightsaber practitioner.
As a fighter he was extremely strong, being able to come to blows with Grevious, and Dooku on a few occasions. He practiced form 7 and made a variant to the usual form of this form Juyo, and named in Vapaad. This allowed him to fight Sidious on even terms, Sidious is superior in my opinion, and the reason Mace was able to hold his own,and win, was Vapaad allows him to harness the darkside energy running out of his opponent and deflect it back at them, so the harder Sidious fought the stronger he became.
Mace was strong in the force. Able to use it to increase his strength, and was so strong in Tuten Manis that he was able to make his fists as strong as steel and punch through battle droids. He was able to not just use force push, but the force crush ability and uses it on Grevious, crushing his ribs, and on many droids.
He is my 4th favorite Jedi ...more
Mace windu is probably the most powerful, we never see him did, just fall off the edge of the building. Obi wan also says to anakin "if you practiced your saber skills as muh as your flying, you would match even mace windu " or something like that. This suggests that mace windu has the best saber skills.
Mace Windu is my favorite character in all of Star Wars! I wish they would make a movie or a series about him. He has amazing skills and he took down Jango Fett, and Palps. If it weren't for Anakin, Mace would've defeated him!
Luke has the most character development on this list. He goes from a complaining teen to a powerful, mature, and flat out awesome young man. He's the guy you just want to win. The power of his father, the wisdom of Yoda and Obi wan, and the compassion of Padame. Luke is just flat out incredible. All the stuff he has done at such a young age. He defeated his all powerful father, and later, the most powerful sith to EVER LIVE. He blew up the Death Star at age 18, and becomes the most powerful force user of all time.
Luke skywalker is the greatest jedi of all time, he had training by obi wan and yoda(some of the most powerful jedi of all time). He was also the sun of the chosen one, except he reached his full potential. He defeated an extremely powerful sith and brought him back to the light side. He was a master dual wielder as well as an amazing pilot. He could hold a black hole in his hands. He could even use dark side abilities such as force choke, force crush, and force lightning(which he could use to instantly kill somebody). He could communicate with the dead, use force light(an ability that weakens dark side and boosts light side around you) to an extent where he could permanently severe someone from the dark side of the force, his force pushes could level armies. So yeah, obi wan and yoda don't stand a chance.
Luke is my favourite jedi. There are not many people who survived battle with Darth Vader and did not die. And even if they did, the didn't return to second round. Luke did it. He fought Vader twice and once was victorious. He brought him back to light and saved the galaxy. In legends, he became the MOST powerful jedi ever. And of course, his suit and lightsaber from episode 6. He should be first.
I agree that there are better Jedi on this list, but you really have to credit Luke with restoring the Jedi Order that had fallen under the leadership of those above. If he had turned to the dark side, only one person (Leia) would have a shot at stopping him. Instead, he chose not to strike down his father and now the Sith are no more.
He is coolest, I love him. He is wise jedi. He is my favorite, but everyone ruined everything by voting for Anakin Skywalker
#Anakin is evil people!
Without Jinn, there would be no redemption of Anakin and there would be no balance in the force. Jinn taught Yoda and Obi how to become force ghosts. Without Luke having communication with Ben's ghost, his training would never be and he was the only one strong enough to face Vader. The empire would have crushed the rebellion with Sidious and Vader and the galaxy would be lost.
Truly the most peaceful of the jedi and even though he disagreed with the council many times. He was right in believing that Anakin was the chosen one. He was also the first jedi in history to become one with the force. The other jedi are skillful like Yoda and Kenobi but none had the same connection to the force as Qui-gon.
I know most people don't read the books, but if you do. Read "cloak of deception" qui-gon discovers that the sith have returned and are plotting a massive war. He argues with the jedi council, but even the wise yoda fails to see the big picture.
Also darth plagiues states in his novel "darth plagiues" that qui-gon's ability to see the big picture could undo everything the sith have planned. Plagiues considered qui-gon jinn to be a bigger threat than yoda cause of his wisdom.
He nearly killed General Grievous while battling Manga Gaurds, one of the last Jedi (besides) Mace Windew to not get killed by the Emperor, their is rumor that he could have survived because if you look closely, very closely, his body won't be on the ground in Avenge of the Sith, can breathe underwater, smiles even if he is about to die, awesome lightsaber, wise, survived the battle of Money Cala, survived the battle of Genosis, held his own against Emperor Palatine for a while, and he battled C3-P0/battle Droid. STAR WARS FANS- He isn't good because he was in the prequels. #KitFistoforbestJediever
The only other jedi apart from Obi-Wan Kenobi to come anywhere close to defeating General Grievous. Plus, he later gets to use two lightsabers and has that awesome smile! It's really too bad that we never got to see his true fighting talent so much in the actual movie series. He may not be as important or as powerful as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, or Mace Windu, but he'll go down in jedi history none the less, as the guy that "fought with a smile".
Kit Fisto was known for always having a smile on his face during combat, and was one of the more open Jedi.He skills with the lightsaber was great, being a form 1 master, his movements were very much chaotic in nature. He was the first council member added after the start of the Clone Wars, and would prove his skills throughout the conflict. He technically won his duel against the droid commander general Grevious, and was chosen by Mace Windu to accompany him against Sidious. Although I find the Sidous duel to be very dumb in the begining and to have been solely to boast Sidious's own prowess.He was a Jedi Councilor, so his application was on the force itself. His pushes and pulls were strong, and he could manipulate water with the force unlike any Jedi at this time. Though he wasn't that much stronger then any other jedi.He is my 6th favorite Jedi in the order during this era, and is, most likely, in the top 10 strongest combatants in the order during this period.
While Kit fisto isn't the most powerful Jedi he sure is my favourite character in all of Star Wars. Out of everyone on the council he is one of the only ones that is not corrupt. even in power levels he is in the top 10! He was able to defeat General Grevious without getting one of his tentacles chopped off. He has the most sense of humour out of anyone on the council and in my opinion he is the best Jedi and Star Wars character
Plo Koon is a life time council member on the Jedi High council, and is known to have been good friends with Qui-gon jinn.He is best known in lightsaber abilities for fending off the sith assassin Asaj Ventress with a broken arm, and coming to even blows with the sith apprentice Savage Opress. He was an ace pilot only being out classed by Saessee Tinn, and Anakin Skywalker.His force abilites were average, but it should be noted he can survive in a void.He is my 7th favorite Jedi, and is likely a stronger combatant then Fisto so worthy of being in the top 10, maybe 6th or 5th in the order at the time.
Plo Koon gains well deserving respect, there are much in media and discs to commemorate Jedi Master Plo of the Rebel Republic. It is a fine character to game with as well despite being not so famous the Mon Calimari does catch attention now and so often. Not bad of an acceptable holocron archives of the good or light side team as they prove in the Clone Wars.
Plo Koon is a Kel-Dor Jedi Master. He was the padawan learner of Wookie Jedi Master Tyvokka. He joined the Jedi High Council in 44 BBY as a replacement for his fallen master in the Stark Hyperspace War. He was a good friend of Qui-Gon Ginn. He is a master of form V Shien/Djem-so. He has an ability to wield orange Force - Lightning, a very dark power, but he assured and proved to the High Council that he could control it and not fall to the dark side.
He's the coolest Jedi ever. I really don't like how he died thought. I always wanted a figure of him. Yoda is hilarious. So I say he should number two. All I can say
Greatest death scene in star wars. Has one of the highest seats on the council behind only Yoda, Mace and Plo koon. Def underrated
One of the strongest, wisest and a great general.
He is on the Jedi council. Cool last stand.
He is epic because he has a big head!
He was trained by Yoda and before turning bad trained qui Gon. He was when he was good a powerful jedi, even if only referenced in the movies. I think he counts.
Probably the most skilled duelist... ever?
As a Jedi and a sith he was equally one of the greatest dualists ever
Better than most of the jedi in the order. She knew staying with the order would have hurt her more than it would help her, and she was able to find a greater strength without them and act as a 'fulcrum" for the rebellion. Definitely top 10 material.
Unlike with most jedi, we got to see ahsoka grow up. We saw the rash, snippy padawan develop into jedi knight material. We saw her best and worst, and yet many still loved her, or else Disney wouldn't have brought her back in Rebels. Not only that, but she still has the potential to be a FORCE WEILDER! I'd say she dserves a spot on the list. Maybe not top 5, but definitely a 8 or 9.
Great jedi for her young age, has a great potential as a leader as she is able to keep her cool and think outside the box, hope we see her more in Star Wars: Rebels.
She is clearly the best Jedi she is my favorite character and Jedi she is the best most amazing strongest wisest kindest Jedi ever!
Revan, who SHOULD be in the top fives, is obviously one of the most powerful force users in the Star Wars universe. I'm not saying he is number one, as he did fall to the dark side, but he could definitely beat many characters that people idolize as we speak. For instance, Revan realized the Jedi Order was not the way to continue, so he left it and eventually came in hands with the Sith, where he started the rule of two and mastered basically every Sith secret on existence. Then, he was brainwashed by the Jedi and, now fully experienced in both sides of the force, he met Bastilla Shan (I'm not going into details on that), DESTROYED Darth Malak, another powerful force user, and therefore became a legend on his own time.
He mastered the ways of the light side of the force, until the only thing to learn was how to leave the Jedi. Tired of their sissying around, he left the order to fight the Mandalorians (Space Huns), then became a Sith, mastering the dark Side and the Star Forge, a great and powerful dark side nexus. He then very nearly destroyed the old republic and the Jedi order, until he was betrayed by his apprentice (he also started the rule of two). He was then taken back to the light and retrained as a Jedi, then refaced with the power of the dark side, and in full knowledge of both sides, rejected the dark, redeemed himself and his lover, Bastilla, defeated Darth malek, now a master, destroyed the Star Forge and rebalanced the force thousands of years before Anakin was even conceved.
Darth Revan is the best, HANDS DOWN! Who do you think about when I talk about a Jedi who killed countless Mandalorians/Sith/Jedi/tusken raiders/Got the point yet? When I talk about this Jedi, you'd better be thinking about Revan, because he's the guy who practically whopped Darth Vitiate. For more info on what I think about this Jedi, look for what I said about him in the Top 10 Sith list. (Both Jedi and Sith entries have the same sentence starting it. [The sentence is-Darth Revan is the best, HANDS DOWN! ] )
Revan's only weakness was blindness towards his trusted companions goals, had he not been betrayed he would have ruled the galaxy and been the most powerful leader ever to lead the sith and the republic.
There was a deleted scene of her being killed during order 66. Anikan was ordered to kill her because general palpatine knew she would be to powerful to take alone. She was without a doubt the most powerful female jedi ad was well known for her connection with nature. General Grevious made it clear that he feared her and she bested anyone that went against her. Sadly she didn not have much screen time.. but it makes up for that in the comics. Overall deserves to be put at least number 8
Shaak Ti is a great Jedi- skilled in the force. She used battle meditation to help the Jedi defeat the seperatists and same with the 501st Legion Order 66. She has one of the highest medichlorian counts and is impressively skilled in lightsaber combat despite her abundant use of the force.
Shaak Ti is a very respected Jedi Master. She is a very powerful Force-user and an incredibly skilled lightsaber combatant. She is a master of form II Makashi, and form V Shien/Djem-so.
She's wise and powerful, and she can control the environment of planet felucia with her force power! She's one of the best female jedi ever!
Master at Battle Meditation, Master at telekinesis Master at Absorbing even a lightsaber blade from a sith master, Trained in every saber form and Jedi master and council leader during the fall of Vititate, responsible for the discovery of tython and the descendant of both Bastilla shan and Revan.
Battle Meditation, EXTREMELY powerful force wave enough to bring an entire mountain down on Darth Malgus, and SUPREME saber skills. Before battling Malgus she annihilated SEVERAL sith by "dancing" in a line wiping them all out in just a few seconds. She was a no-nonsense beast among Jedi!
Satele Shan was a master of battle meditation. She was also a master of the Force technique Tou-Te-Menaz, or the ability to absorb things like a lightsaber blade or Force lightning. She was also very wise, eventually becoming Grand Master of the Jedi Order.
From Star Wars Old Republic- was Grand Master- same position as Yoda onloy more powerful.
Wise Jedi. He sacrificed himself and saved the lives of millions. If it wasn't for him, the Jedi council would be no more. He was stabbed and wounded but still used the force to stop a weapon of mass destruction from destroying Courcant.
If you do some research on Poof you find out he saved an entire planet! He saved master yoda and tons of other jedi from dying! How great is that!
Poof should be in the top ten
For being one of my favorite jedi masters.
He is not a Jedi, but his clone is. He has amazing force abilities and he should be a lot more places up. He can take on anybody ahead of him in this line. He will make a great fight with anybody. He took on darth Vader and won he should be voted for
He beat his own master Darth Vader, then he took out the emperor himself and spared his life, why he even brought down a star destroyer by just using the force! He isn't the best but he deserves a spot in the top 10.
Galen Marek was undoubtedly the best. he is the true essence of a hero!
She sucks. Absolutely awful. Oh big deal, she tackles an ex-stormtrooper with a stick. If I wAs the lady that asked "Rey who" then when she said Rey Skywalker (she has no right to call herself that) I would have shot her. I'll say it again she is absolute garbage.
She's only a scavenger who has the map of Luke Skywalker. She was scared of the lightsaber at first but she was very strong at defeating Kylo Ren, even she was not trained.
Rey hasn't been taught how to use it. But in the final battle I was shocked she knew how to use it and killed Kylo Ren. I bet on episode 8 she's going to have a lightsaber.
She has raw power, she can control it. She killed palpatine.
He's the main protagonist in Fallen Order!
Better than Rey that's for sure, legit survived after the whole empire was after him
Well, he did have huge courage when he attempted to defeat count dooku
Are you kidding me he is like the weakest Jedi of all time every Jedi except him would beat jango fett even Barris offee would kick trebors but.
Nice grey skin
Jedi Bob. The most powerful Jedi to ever exist. Legends are told that Jedi Bob created the Force, the universe, the Gonk Droid, and everything else that exists. He is literally God.
He is probably not called Bob but his name is unknown as the only evidence we have of him is in some sort of Lego set which I have forgotten. He will be found in the Lego Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary.
I love his name
This is a bias list. He could see more with the force blind than he ever did when he had vision! He survived order 66, he trained Ezra to be a jedi knight, he sacrificed himself by stopping A STINKING INFERNO WITH THE FORCE! This guy is legendary. At the first two seasons of the show, he may seem like a bland character, but his character really develops over time. You get to hear more about his past. Hey! He was even in the first episode of the Bad Batch! He is an underrated character in an underrated show.
Okay when he can see but, when he is blind he is the worst.
The first exclusive EU character on the list. Jaina is so many hundred times better than Rey. Not just as a Jedi but as a character. Probably has something to do with the fact that the EU is so many hundred times better than Disney has been making.
Jaina's pretty cool, but probably could only go up a few places.
