Top Ten Most Powerful Force Wielders from the Star Wars Universe

This is my list of the top ten most powerful Force wielders from the Star Wars universe. This includes the books, the movies, the video games and episodes.
The Top Ten
1 Emperor Palpatine Emperor Palpatine 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.

Built two armies and had them fighting each other to his own ends while sitting right in front of the entire Jedi council.

He outmaneuvered everyone completely.

Might have indefinite lifespan due to his Masters research.

Carved up Darth Maul and Savage Oppress in about a minute when he found out they were setting up an opposing force, Maul was terrified of him.

If you think of how he always had every angle covered, did he really die in the death star at the hands of Vader...makes you wonder.

Emperor Palpatine is one of the best Sith in the galaxy because he is both a master lightsaber combatant, able to bring Master Windu to a stand still, and a powerful Force wielder. Add that with the fact that he is a master manipulator, and you've got a pretty bad-ass Sith Lord.

2 Yoda 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.

Everyone knows that Yoda is one of the best Jedi, as he was able to best Count Dooku in a lightsaber duel and also has hundreds of years of experience under his belt. He was one of the Jedi who was never even tempted by the dark side, and has always remained true to the light. He truly showed us that size does not matter as he trained many prosperous Jedi, fought many brave battles and managed to survive to tell the tale

He reflect back lightning

3 Galen Marek 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.

Starkiller is what got me intrested in star wars in the first place. Not only is he wicked powerful and the creator of the rebel alliance but he also shares the struggles of having to deal with vader and sidious' grasp, whom who controlled him his entire life.

This guy is one of the most powerful Jedi/Sith in the galaxy. He was able to defeat the Emperor (but not kill him), which not even Yoda could do. He also had enough Force Power to be able to pull down a Super Star Destroyer, and had lightsaber combat skills good enough to best Shaak Ti and Darth Vader, two of the best lightsaber combatants of their time. His Force Lightning was so powerful it could not only kill his enemies at the slightest touch, but also incinerate them into ashes.

He could use the force to pick up AT-ST's and crush them into a tiny ball, he could snag TIE fighters out if the air and fling them long distances not to mention pulling a super star destroyer down from orbit. Emperor Palpatine may be much more cunning and is probably always 2 steps ahead of everyone Galen included, but in raw force power Galen absolutely wins. Luke Skywalker could barely get an X wing off the ground which Galen could do in his sleep

I was shocked about this guy! I only knew him from a video game and thought his real name was Star Killer!

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

Where to start with this guy. He is one powerful Jedi even though he has a lower midi-chlorian count than most Jedi. He was able to duel against Emperor Palpatine for a long time and might have actually managed to kill Palpatine had Anakin not interfered. He also disposed over Jango Fett, the mighty bounty hunter, during the Battle of Geonosis whilst keeping his head intact. All in all, he goes to show that he truly deserves his place on the Jedi Council, and it was a huge disappointment to find out that he didn't survive the Great Jedi Purge

5 Anakin Skywalker 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.

Almost anyone knows of young Anakin Skywalker's journey from being a boy slave to a menacing Sith Lord. He was a master lightsaber duellists, besting many Force wielders including Count Dooku and most of the Jedi Order. Too bad he lost all of his arms and legs otherwise he could've been a force to be reckoned with.

Anakin Skywalker is the best star wars character and who star wars is all about

He was the chosen one and the son of the FORCE so he is THE most powerful

He's literally the Chosen One. He's the most poewrful force weilder to ever live. His father was the force itself.

6 Darth Maul 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 debuted in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, and has made subsequent appearances more.

Not much is known about the mysterious Darth Maul, who was assumed to have been killed in Episode 1, by being cut in half by Obi-Wan. But what is known was that he was the first Sith apprentice of Emperor Palpatine, and he carried a red double-bladed lightsaber. He was a strong swordsman, able to kill Jedi Knight Qui-Gon Jinn with little effort. Unfortunately, he was beaten by Qui-Gon's Padawan, and fell into a pit on Naboo.

Legend at light saber battles, beat obi wan kenobi in various fights in the clone wars. He was also strong in the force, this is shown because he survived being cut in half

Ahh Darth Maul. He's the best.

7 Obi-Wan Kenobi Obi-Wan Kenobi Obi-Wan Kenobi is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, played by Sir Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor.

You can't go anywhere near a Star Wars convention without hearing the name Obi-Wan Kenobi. He was one of the most well-known Jedi who survived the Purge. He is well-known for being the defeater of Darth Maul, General Grievous and Darth Vader, all well-known swordsman. He seemed to have a thing for cutting off limbs, as all the people mentioned before were defeated with limbs cut off of them by Obi-Wan. Such as Darth Maul with no legs left, General Grievous with only one out of four arms left and Darth Vader with no natural limbs left

He beat half the people on this list and trained 2 of them. He mastered the ability to come back to life. A feat only done by a few jedi. He defeated Vader, who was more powerful than the Emperor.

He defeated anakin on Mustafar and is an all around very powerful force user.

8 Luke Skywalker 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 Skywalker, the hero of the Original Trilogy, who blew up the Death Star with just one proton torpedo in Episode IV. He was a magnificent swordsman, as he was able to hold his own against Darth Vader in Episode V with little training. He was also able to delay Galen Marek from reaching the Millennium Falcon during the Battle of Hoth in an alternate universe of the Force Unleashed. Unfortunately, with both of these battles, Luke ended up losing his hand. In the latter battle, he even got corrupted by Galen Marek to turn to the dark side, becoming Marek's apprentice.

In the last Jedi he force projected himself to a different planet, allowing the ressistance to escape and surviving many blasts from an at at.

Luke is the most powerful Jedi, but how does the Yuzang Vong war show that? I read up so much but couldn't find anything.

George Lucas has stated that Luke is the most powerful jedi ever

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

He destroyed/saved the entire Old Republic and beat Lord Malak who was using the power of the star forge against him.

Revan mastered the light side and the dark side. He threw meteors at his opponents.

Revan is the man! There should definitely be more stories about him and his time in the world of starwars...

10 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. He was portrayed by Christopher Lee and more.

The mighty Count Dooku, who fell to his knees at Anakin's saber. He was most definitely a powerful Jedi turned Sith, who survived most of the Clone Wars before being betrayed by his Master and beheaded by Jedi Knight, Anakin Skywalker. He was one of the many Sith Lords able to use Force Lightning, and he was one of the greatest swordsman of his age.
