Top 10 Most Powerful Jedi and Sith from Star Wars
The wisest and most powerful Jedi, Yoda can do everything from training Jedi Padawans to defending the Republic and the Jedi Order. Gotta love Yoda for being there whenever needed
Yoda was the most powerful Jedi we see in canon. The most talented and second most powerful is without a doubt Anakin Skywalker.
900 Years of experience and training on top of an unusually high midichlorian count! While the concentration of midichlorians does not necessarily mean greatness, 900 years gives you plenty of time to explore that potential.
Anakin Skywalker is, without a doubt, the most powerful force sensitive in history. Even though he let his arrogance get the better of him on Mustafar, Jedi Master Obi Wan Kenobi admitted that Anakin had become a far better Jedi than he could have ever hoped to be. He quite easily defeated Count Dooku while Obi Wan lay unconscious and defeated, and he is the Chosen One of the prophecy. As Darth Vader, he was unmatched throughout the entire galaxy, and he is the only one throughout both trilogies to not be instantly helpless when struck with Sidious' force lightning. He was described in Episode 1 to have an even higher midichlorian count than even Yoda. He has had a reputation of being one of the greatest lightsaber duelists in the Jedi Order's history, as well being praised by several Jedi of being capable of what he was able to do at such a young age.
"Fully defeated by just anyone, the dark side cannot be, but only by the Chosen One. And who might be this Jedi? Know I do not, but not yet born is he or she. This much, sense I can. A vessel of pure Force the Chosen One will be, more powerful than any Jedi in history."
―Yoda, from the Great Holocron
If Yoda said it, so it must be. As Luke, Yoda, Revan etc. are fan favorites, they are always called the most powerful, but it's just not true. Anakin/ Vader, is, was, and will forever be The Chosen One. The most powerful force sensitive mortal ever. He forced The Son and The Daughter to their knees and was entrusted by The Father to keep them in check once he died. As much as people love them, Luke, Yoda, Obi-Wan and Sidious could never have done that.
Luke Skywalker has the exact same force potential as Anakin Skywalker and in some cases has been deemed the Chosen One by many media outputs, but there is a difference at the base of Luke and Anakin's power and connectivity with the Force. Anakin had the potential to use the force beyond known thought, but his potential to do so was ruined when he was defeated by his former Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. But, in comparison to the feats that Luke has achieved after the Battle of Endor, we can see that he was able to achieve oneness with the Force more than once to destroy the Yuuzhan Vong and in other scenarios, a feat Anakin did once during the Clone Wars. As much as I like both of these Jedi, Luke in comparison was a far greater Force user and Jedi than Anakin.
After Fighting in three of the most iconic star wars, wars Galactic Civil War, Yuuzhan Vong conflict, 2nd galactic civil war and against the imperial remanent immediately after the war. He rebuilt the order by training a new generation and hunting down surviving jedi and inviting them to his order. He was also one of the key factors and saving the hero of theRebellion Leia Organa. He was defeated Lord Vader and later in his life became the living representation of the force destroying an entire fleet of star destroyers with pure force ability.
Obi Wan is a legendary Jedi. He was the first Jedi in centuries to kill a Sith, Darth Maul. His actions shaped the galaxy for eternity. He taught Anakin, the Chosen One, helped and trained Luke Skywalker, and did many other things. He was skilled at fighting, and was very wise. As Anakin once said, he is "As wise as Master Yoda, and as powerful as Master Windu." He is intelligent, brave, strong, and a role model for others. Without him, the Empire couldn't have been overthrown, since Luke would never have been taught.
Obi Wan's mastery of the form 3 is second to none and he in my opinion is the best all rounder jedi ever. He was the embodiment of the perfect jedi. Sure he might've not been the chosen one or has a high amount of midichlorians but he was able to match Anakin's (supposedly the most powerful force user to ever live) force push showing how much knowledge and prowess of the force he had achieved. And who knows what he had done during his time on Tattooine, sure his dueling skills must've failed due to old age and lack of practice but I'm sure his wisdom grew 10 times to even match those of Yoda. Hopefully they show this in his upcoming movie. Oh and Obi Wan has the HIGH GROUND!
Mace Windu has to be one of the most powerful Jedi of all time, he was able to overpower Chancellor Palpatine and Jango Fett, the most feared Sith Lord and the most feared Bounty Hunter. Master Windu should be higher than Darth Sidious and who knows maybe Mace even had the potential to kill Anakin Skywalker. As most people know Windu also uses powers of the dark side however not turning into a power-obsessed monster like Sidious which boosts his force abilities. Overall Mace Windu has to be one of the strongest Jedi Masters to ever live.
Would have owned darth sidious if anakins punk ass hadn't betrayed him. Yoga couldn't even finish him after mace windu messed up his face. And beheaded Bob a fett with ease after obi wan filed to do so. Also messed general grievous up and gave him that cough from like a mile a away by the force. And has a purple lightsaber...windu owns
Easy number one, sat in Jedi meetings and was not sensed, obviously stronger than any of the jedi in the force, beat Yoda, and anyone that says windu beat him is wrong, he obviously let him win to get anakin to take the final step to the dark side.
Darth Sidious arranged the first Jedi slaughter, blocked out Darth Plagueis' mind reading and has thrown many senate pods at the same time. He also defeated foes like Yoda, Mace Windu and Darth Vader. He should first place.
Powers of Darth Sidious, only his force powers are more powerful than the Force powers of master Yoda, if he had better knowledge of using it he would have a better chance of defeating Yoda.
Revan is my personal favorite. He mastered both the light and dark side of the force, conquered the dark side, turned from evil back to good, has a cool mask, was able to keep vitiate at bay and was able to resist darth vitiate's mind control
A balance of the light and dark side. He was so powerful with force lighting that he could turn foes into ash. Also, even after being held hostage for 300 years, and have his memory wiped, he still held a connection to the force
Regan pulled a Mandalorian cruiser from orbit. He mastered both the Light Side, and the Dark Side. He knew how to cloud and slow the mind, absorb Force energy from his opponents, absorb the life out of his opponents, and cast Force Storm �" the most powerful form of Lightning.
Galen Marek had the potential to be one of the most powerful Force users in Jedi and Sith history. He was able to decimate countless imperial forces by himself, not to mention he defeated Rahm Kota, Kazdan Paratus, Maris Brood, and the Emperor SINGLEHANDEDLY. Hell, he even managed to overwhelm Shaak Ti and his former master Darth Vader in lightsaber combat, both of whom were two of the greatest duelists of their time. Also, Marek was able to defeat PROXY's training modules replicating some legendary duelists such as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul. He was even able to telekinetically grip and change the direction of a falling Imperial I-class Star Destroyer and force it to the ground. And let's not forget Starkiller, the codename given to a clone of the late Galen Marek, who was said to be even more powerful than the original Marek was.
Starkiller is the dark counterpart of Luke Skywalker, the most powerful Force-wielded in history. Starkiller wasn't even at his fullest potential when he defeated Darth Vader and the Emperor, and he wasn't even drawing upon his full power to combat them, so if allowed to grow to his fullest, he could've easily become one of the most powerful Jedi/Sith that ever existed, if not the most powerful.
This guy is General Hux, let's be honest, meaning that he has been the one over watching the whole story since before Episode I. He is the master of the Star Wars movies.
This dude is pretty strong, but Darth sidious has to be stronger to kill him.
He is my lord, I pledge myself to him and I know he is still alive!
Without him learning to "become one with the Force" beyond death, Yoda and Kenobi would not have learned the skill as well, thus preventing Luke from being trained by the Force Ghost of Kenobi, meaning Luke would have never made it Dagobah to then be trained by an aging Yoda. Without Qui-Gon, there is no Luke.
He's awesome. He was very wise and had much knowledge would let him find The Chosen One.
Why isn't he higher? He is far more powerful than Anakin and Luke. I would put Luke at 8 and I'm being generous
He has done so many amazing things, he saved the republic, almost destroyed the republic, understood both sides of the force, and lived for hundreds of years, keeping the with emperor at bay. By far my favorite force user.
He mastered both the light and the dark side. He was a Sith Lord and probably the best Jedi of his time.
Obviously since this dude restarted the sith order! He not only suffered worms eating his chest and switching blood to acid, he murdered everyone in the sith academy! There was once a sith academy... Now only two sith may happen. Master and apprentice.
He killed everyone who stood in his path. He had orbalisks surrounding his body and he was huge and muscular. Convinced Kaan to explode the thought bomb
He is so boss! He defeated all the rest of the sith.
Coolest Jedi ever. He almost killed Grievous. His sense of humor while also being one of the most powerful Jedi of all time should definitely give him a higher spot on this list.
Definitely my most favorited Jedi ever. He was amazing in every fight he had in the clone wars, and should've lasted longer in the battle against Palpitine (at least he survived longer than the two others).
One of the coolest jedi ever. Had a great sense of humor and was very powerful during the clone wars
Maul never reached his full potential in my opinion. In fact he was only an apprentice at the time he killed jedi master Qui Gon-Jinn. Had Maul not been too overconfident when fighting Obi-Wan, he could have easily been known as the greatest sith lightsaber duelist if he trained for many years after the fight, though his force control was not as strong.
If you read "The Wrath of Darth Maul," you can see that maul was actually in complete control of his battle against Qui Gon and Obi Wan, and should have won. He is underestimated a lot
He faught two jedi's at once and killed qui gon and nearly beat another while fighting around a pit.
Only beaten because his force bond was severed by a traitor. Drained an ENTIRE PLANET. A stray thought of him, just uttering his name could draw him to your location. Was part of the The Sith Triumvirate, which included Darth Traya (Most learned and philosophical Sith) and Darth Sion (Pretty much Immortal). Hunted Jedi after the civil war.
He was indeed powerful but in the end he became more dependent on the force to be able to have his own free will, in the end his connection to the force destroyed him. He essentially wanted the same outcome as to Darth Vitiale and had the same power - an end to ll life in the galaxy. Not because of power but because he thought life was a pollution.
That's the epitaph of villainy right there.
He. Eats. Planets. Yeah, Yoda can keep up with Dooku at age 900, this guy is only a spirit with no physical form, and he ATE A PLANET!
Darth Tyranus or also known as Count Dooku has a specific style of battling his enemies and he is one of most powerful Sith Lords ever, his Force powers are more powerful than Skywalker, he has a strategy. He died only because he was drained by the power he wanted so much.
He was disappointed in obi wan and lost to anakin not because of skill but because of anakin physical strength. Young count Dooku would've beaten anakin. Also he held his on with yoda. He is at least twice as powerful as maul.
Tyranus should be much higher on this list. He was apprentice to Yoda and is also able to fight on par with Yoda. He also beat Jedis Obi-wan and Anakin without too much trouble. In fact both of the jedi would have been killed if it were not for Yoda.
Ruled as immortal supreme overlord of the With for thousands of years, basically achieving what all other sith except Sidious and Kraut, only dreamed of. He never died, he just left, too cool to bother what anyone thought or felt. To safeguard his power, his plan was to eliminate all life, becoming the sole embodiment and master of the force in existence. He kept truly horrifying Sith Lords in thrall to him on pain of death and proved, it, he once consumed 12 of them at a go, just as he consumed an entire planet in his ascension to power. The list goes on and on.
Darth Vitiate was a powerful Force user who ruled for 13,000 years. He should be somewhere in the top 3. He was able to destroy a whole planet when he was just a child. He lived during the reign of Marka Ragnos. He took control of Darth Revan's and Malak's minds and turned them into Sith when he first encountered them. He also killed and stole the Force powers from the dark Force users on his first Sith Council, and he killed or tortured his parents when he was a child.
Koon was a great pilot and duelist, an all - around great jedi master who served on the council and on the battlefield.
He treated his clones with compassion and respect.
How in the world is he not like number 10?
Ki should be way higher then number 19 he can challenge Mace Windu in a fight ki should have been on the top 5. Ki can beat Count dooku and even Anakin Skywalker in a fight.
One of the little jedi who realized about the 66 order and even fought back. He was also the general of the marine clone troopers (an elite body)
An underestimated jedi. He served as a general and possessed extremely high intelligence.
My friend favorite sith.
He is mace windu
Not even a real Jedi or Sith.
Why the heck is he in here.
He is not from Star Wars
