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.

It's darth vader, people, one of the most iconic characters in history!

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

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.

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

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

4 Darth Nihilus Darth Nihilus is a fictional Sith lord who serves as a primary antagonist in the video game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II.

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

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

He was short so he had a smaller hit box.

6 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

7 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.

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.

After he murdered Tenebrous, Plagueis, mentored a young Palpatine. Palpatine eventually joined Plagueis as his Sith apprentice. Plagueis was strong with the... 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.

10 Darth Malak Darth Malak is a fictional Sith lord in the Star Wars franchise. Malak first appeared in the 2003 video game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. He was originally a Jedi Knight trained by Revan, but both Revan and Malak fell to the Dark Side.

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 Contenders
11 Darth Malgus Darth Malgus is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. Malgus was a member of the Sith Order during the Old Republic, and serves as an antagonist in The Old Republic video game.

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...

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 Krayt

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

14 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)

15 Savage Opress Savage Oppress is a fictional character who appeared in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Oppress was the secret apprentice and of Count Dooku and brother of Darth Maul. He is voiced by Clancy Brown.
16 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.

17 Exar Kun

He wielded a double- bladed lightsaber and was strong in the force. After he died for the first time his soul went on and caused evil for a long time until finally he met his demise at the hands of the Jedi.

Also a dark lord of the sith... But died 2 times (3996, yavin 4 as a physical body and at 11 ABY at yavin 4 as a spirit

18 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.

19 Supreme Leader Snoke Supreme Leader Snoke is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. Snoke served as the mysterious leader of the First Order. Supreme Leader Snoke is a CGI character voiced and performed by Andy Serkis.
20 Darth Tenebrous
21 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

22 The Grand Inquisitor
23 Darth Wyyrlok III
24 Darth Desolous

Not so much for how cool he is, rather how cool he could be. It would be awesome if the new canon fleshed out his story.
