Top 10 Greatest Jedi

The Top Ten
1 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 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.

2 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 portrayed by Frank Oz.

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 for nothing.

3 Anakin Skywalker Anakin Skywalker is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise created by George Lucas. 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. Skywalker is portrayed by Jake Lloyd in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Hayden Christensen in Episode... read more

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.

4 Mace Windu Mace Windu is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, portrayed by actor Samuel L. Jackson in the prequel films.

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 in this era, and in my opinion the 2nd or 3rd strongest combatant in the order at the time.

5 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. He is portrayed by Mark Hamill.

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.

6 Qui-Gon Jinn Qui-Gon Jinn is a fictional character in the Star Wars saga, portrayed by Liam Neeson and is one of the main protagonists in the 1999 film Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.

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.

7 Plo Koon Plo Koon is a fictional Jedi Master who appeared in the Star Wars prequel trilogy and the animated television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008-2014; 2020).

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.

8 Kit Fisto Kit Fisto is a Jedi from the Star Wars universe. A Nautolan Jedi, Kit Fisto appeared in Star Wars, Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars, Episode III: Revenge Of the Sith, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008-2014; 2020).

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".

9 Ki-Adi-Mundi Ki-Adi-Mundi is a fictional Jedi Master in the Star Wars franchise who appeared in the Star Wars prequel trilogy and Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

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.

10 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 voiced by Corey Burton in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Clone Wars.

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

The Contenders
11 Ahsoka Tano Ahsoka Tano is a character in the Star Wars franchise created by George Lucas and Dave Filoni. Introduced as the Padawan of Anakin Skywalker, she is a central protagonist of both the 2008 animated film Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the subsequent TV series. Ahsoka Tano was voiced by Ashley Eckstein in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, and Star Wars: Forces of Destiny. Ahsoka made her live... read more

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.

12 Revan Revan is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise and the protagonist of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.

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.

13 Shaak Ti Shaak Ti is a fictional Jedi Master who appeared in the Star Wars prequel trilogy and Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

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.

14 Aayla Secura Aayla Secura is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise portrayed by Amy Allen in the prequel trilogy.
15 Satele Shan

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.

16 Yarael Poof Yarael Poof is a fictional Jedi Master in the Star Wars universe, appearing in the Star Wars prequel trilogy.

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.

17 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.

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!

18 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 conflict with the First Order when her solitary life is interrupted by BB-8, the droid of ace Resistance... read more

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.

19 Cal Kestis

He's the main protagonist in Fallen Order!

Better than Rey that's for sure, legit survived after the whole empire was after him

20 Leia Organa Princess Leia Organa, later known as General Leia Organa, is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed in films by Carrie Fisher.
21 Coleman Trebor

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

22 Bob

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

23 Jaina Solo Jaina Solo is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. Created by Timothy Zahn, Jaina is the daughter of Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa and the twin sister of Jacen Solo.

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.

24 Kanan Jarrus

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.

25 Ben Skywalker
