Strongest Force Users
Luke is the most powerful force-user hands down. He mastered the majority of Force abilities, rebuilt the Jedi Order, beat Lumiya, beat Darth Caedus, and beat freaking Abeloth. He could move black holes with the Force and mastered every lightsaber ability known while also inventing new ones. He learned the ways of the Dark Side under Darth Sidious, the strongest Sith ever, and proceeded to beat him in a duel. George Lucas himself said that Luke is the strongest Force User. He mastered incredibly difficult Force Abilities like Battle Meditation, Force Judgement, Flow Walking, Tutanimisis, Immovability, Force Projection and Illusion, Psychometry, and Shatterpoint. He was the Grandmaster of the Jedi Order and was feared by Abeloth, who was considered 12 times as strong as him, and finally beat her in a battle. He was the strongest force user. Try to convince me otherwise.
Luke Skywalker is the only known force user to have learned all force powers. He also learned all seven lightsaber forms. And he even had the ability to create and control black holes. The people of the galaxy and even beyond saw Luke as a GOD. That's how powerful he is. He could use battle meditation and decide the fate of battles. It was said that Snoke, Palpatine and other powerful force users feared Luke. He defeated Abeloth, a being that is a dozen times more powerful then himself. Luke could absolutely obliterate everything in his way. He didn't only use the light side either. He saw the potential for good in the dark side. Lucas said he was the most powerful. Plus, anyone notice something similar between LUCAS and LUKE. Luke is just a shortened version of Lucas. So obviously Lucas wanted him to be the most powerful.
Luke Skywalker as a Grandmaster could achieve Oneness with the Force at will and manipulate black holes. His telikenetic blasts have taken out entire armies and he is able to project his force presence across the galaxy as well as move at near relativistic speeds. His battle meditation has affected the outcomes of entire wars and he became a master of all known lightsaber forms and even formed his own lightsaber technique known as the three rings of defense. GM Luke is undoubtedly the most powerful force user in Star Wars.
Guys, everyone thinks Adikin killed the emperor, but it was Luke. He is the one that brought Vader to the light side to kill the emperor. So no luke, no victory to the republic. And also, I don't remember any other Jedi pulling a SITH LORD to the light side! remember episode 3, Vader killed pretty much everyone in the temple, and Luke defeated him (I mean when he beat him in a fight, not when he took off his helmet) the Jedi where wrong about the chosen one. I could go on and on, but I wrote enough
Isn't he supposed to be the chosen one the one to bring balance in the force, or to be more precise, the one who brought balance in the force by rising from the dark side into the light and defeating the emperor. Luke is number one on the list and yet he was only saved because of his fathers strength to eventually defeat the dark side inside him. It is true that vader lost to luke but in a fight vader didn't want to win, and only because luke sortly gave in to his hate (the sister mention nearly drove luke to the dark side as I clearly remember). After all the whole canon star wars universe is based on the story of anakin skywalker his fall into the dark side and his final redemption. His life is star wars. The point I want to demonstrate is that the title of the chosen one is by all means unique and thus should be top on this list. Luke is currently number one on this list but no one argues that he isn't the chosen one witch is quite the paradox. Isn't the chosen one supposed to be ...more
Darth Vader is the most badass villain ever, with his cool space helmet and force choke. But that doesn't define him. If you talk about his physical features only, you do not get Darth Vader. Anakin(Vader) was super skilled with the force and was control and order itself. He had so much control that he was able to force himself back onto the light side. He was the chosen one, father of Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker, grandfather of Kylo Ren, and a powerful Sith Lord. Vader was a powerful figure with the force, losing to Luke because he didn't want to win. Even wounded, he still killed Palpatine to save his son. If he remained a Jedi, he could have gone far, just as far or maybe further than Luke. He had an insatiable lust for power, and Palpatine fed that, fed it wholly to turn Anakin into Vader, a supremely gifted user of the force and servant to Sidious. But, there was still good in him. He joined the Dark Side to save his wife from dying in childbirth. Darth Vader was a loving ...more
Although he never reached his potential due to missing like 50% of his flesh and bone he is by far the strongest force user from either dark or light sides. at a young age he was stronger than almost all the Jedi masters! He defeated count duku and would have made short work of obi-wan if he had stayed cool and used his brain a little as obi-wans style of fighting was perfectly suited to defeating Anakin. He, constantly on the verge of death with his life support, was able to use the force like no other before or even after him. I dread to think how the universe would have dealt with a Darth vader that was not constantly on deaths door.
Sooo I mean...Lucas created the Star Wars world right? I'm pretty sure his overall choice of Anakin, Sidious, Yoda, Luke, Obi Wan etc being the main characters of his story is because these were the strongest Sith/Jedi within the Star Wars realm. Why create all of this to not use the examplary characters? I don't understand how you can argue against the originator (Lucas) of why we even have the opportunity to ask this question. Thus all these characters devised from other authors that aren't Lucas shouldn't really be considered as better than any of the original characters.
HOW IS HE NOT NUMBER 1! He is the MOST POWERFUL Sith of ALL TIME! Let me elaborate, he learned all seven lightsaber styles, he knew all force powers known and unknown. He could create wormholes using his force storm ability. These wormholes could destroy entire planets and they can teleport Palpatine across the Galaxy. He could only be defeated by unconventional ways, like when Darth Vader threw him into the reaction core. But that explosion that happened was actually a force nexus. His power was so strong that when he died, the many times he did die, he created a force necks because of his darkness
He was definitely the most powerful force sensitive in the Star Wars universe. Not to mention, the most gifted lightsaber duelist in the galaxy. He mastered all 7 forms of lightsaber dueling. He knew all Dark Side and Light Side abilities. Including force storm which allowed him to bend time and space to create wormholes that allowed him to teleport, and destroy entire planets. All in all Sidious was the most powerful force user in Star Wars.
Darth Sidious would not have been killed by Mace Windu. He only acted like that in order to get Anakin to join the Dark Side. Palpatine (Stated by himself) is said to be one of two force users that can bring themselves back FROM THE DEAD. Not to mention, he can beat Luke Skywalker (Who is the most powerful Jedi ever) and even managed to defeat Starkiller, and he was able to take down a star destroyer with the force.
Yeah, sorry, but Vader never reached his potential and Luke didn't seem to either. Sidious may be lower in force potential, but as far as being a powerful force user, this guy was able to cloud the visions of the entire jedi order and influence the minds of the strong willed to get himself an empire. It's a bit hard to see on screen, but nobody is his match force-wise, besides perhaps Yoda.
Is the Grandmaster, lived for 900 years, trained and taught countless Jedi's (some of which are on this list which speaks for itself right there), can use force lightning (not all force users can do this), arguably one of the best Lightsaber wielders, is extraordinarily intelligent with the force, extremely wise. I'm not going into great detail but am just giving some standout characteristics. You can really make a good case as Yoda being the most powerful force user. In my opinion, speaking exclusively about the Jedi's I think Yoda is definitely the most powerful Jedi ever meaning he is over Luke (I also believe he is over Vader, just because you are the chosen one doesn't mean you are the most powerful force user) so if Luke is number one and Yoda is over him well there you have. Yoda is (arguably) the most powerful force user.
Stated by Lucas to be the most powerful Lightside Force user to have ever lived (on par with Sidious, but as an opposite).
The Skywalkers likely only rival, or surpass, Yoda in potential.
However, Grand Master Yoda lived for 900 years and with all that training, practice and experience is wise enough, powerful enough and skilled enough to be the most powerful Force user ever!
Yoda has been studying for centuries under the training of Jedi master: Del Gormo. He has thrown x-wing fighters and senate pods without effort and taught great Jedi masters such as Count Dooku and Ki-Adi-Mundi. He is without a doubt the most powerful Jedi and should be number 3, behind Darth Sidious and Darth Plagueis.
He lived and trained Jedi for 900 years and he was the grand master of the Jedi for most of his extremely long life. He should be before Luke because his Jedi order lasted for like 20 generations when Luke's only lasted for 20 years or something.
I can't believe Starkiller isn't higher. He is the epitome of what a true hero is. The story he lives through could say it all, but the facts say it all. He was trained by Darth Vader, the most menacing villain to pass over the big screen, who at the time was just fresh out of the lava rivers of Mustafar, and had hate against all Jedi. Starkiller was taught to hate the same way Vader did. Beyond all odds, the apprentice of Vader became the first to go from the dark side and turn to the light. This man started the rebellion that would trouble the Empire for years to come, and that means, in a way, Vader had been defeated. Sidious was defeated. The EMPIRE was defeated, because of this man. Luke didn't do anything. Vader didn't do anything. No one did anything. Starkiller, from the grave, brought peace to the galaxy. Starkiller is the chosen one.
Starkiller has torn through large amounts of storm troopers, both the clone and the original, and then after fighting hundreds of troops taken on Darth Vader and defeated him both times. In the original game he only died because he was forced to create the explosion in the death star when the Emperor's royal guards and some storm troopers came in. It was a sacrifice, not a defeat in the way we know it. Not only that, but while known jedi masters like Mace Windu have been forced to use their lightsabers to catch and/or deflect force lightning, Starkiller was literally catching it in the palms of his hands!
Lucas maybe said that Luke was the strongest. How is that even possible? He obviously wasn't in the first three movies. He only found the might when he was already an adult. So there was no special talent. He didn't have a jedi master who taught him things, unless you call the few blind dronefights and a bit of tough talk from obi wan a yearlong traineeship.
He did neither defeat his father, nor Palpatine. MAYBE he eventually surpassed their power years after, yes. We'll maybe see in Episode 8. But these aren't even filmed (or planned, by that matter) by lucas.
Starkiller on the other hand might not be cannon for the movier universe, but he is indeed the "original" skywalker that lucas planned before he went for the wimpy Luke.
He had the most powerful teacher of his era, Vader himself. And boy did he learn.
I don't think Luke is the most powerful Jedi to defend the Galaxy. And I also think that Anakin should be much higher up on the list as well as Obi-Wan. But the reason I voted for Starkiller was because he was trained by the Chosen One who was also trained by Obi-Wan while going down the list till we hit Yoda. Darth Sidious also showed Anakin the ways of the Dark side who then showed Starkiller. Starkiller than defeated three Jedi madters while he was sti considered an apprentice by Vaders standards. He is a master of both Dark and light because Vader was once a Jedi and taught him everything he knew. He also knows everything Luke does because Luke was trained by Obi-Wan, who trained Vader. And somewhere along the line Yoda had trained Dooku who trained Qui-Gonn who trained Obi-Wan who trained Anakin and Luke. Darth Sidious trained Anakin who trained Starkiller. So Starkiller knows everything most of the people on this list know.
*I am not voting for him because I think that he is extremely powerful, but because he compared to Vititate before he was even close to max potential* Revan in the games is pretty much more powerful than any character ever. He can instant kill with lightning, he is a master of all lightsaber forms and learned how to combine them all at once. He has had the most impressive display of telekinesis. I personally think that he could have quickly surpassed Luke, Vitiate, and Sidious. He was so powerful that he could fight off the most powerful Sith and Jedi of his time after being held unconscious by Vitiate for 300 years. Jedi and Sith would probably be wobbly after 1 year of being unconscious. Was Revan like this after 300 years? Nope.
I know someone said previously don't even bother comparing to the EU or Video Games, but I don't know how most people believe Sidious was the most powerful Sith while taking the EU into account. ONE of the most powerful sure I can see that, but Vitiate was Sith Emperor and ruled for 1300 years surviving on consuming the living force withing people. He devoured and entire planet worth of life when he was a child. Could Luke really stand up to that? He (as far as I know because I haven't read his books) doesn't know much about the dark side. He has 2 masters who weren't exactly around all that long to teach him. The Jedi archives are gone, any information with regards to Sith temples and holocron's are gone. How could he become so powerful teaching himself? He's basically starting from scratch. Mean while, someone like Revan, who was regarded as an extremely strong Jedi in his time as well as a sword master (minus the title), becomes one of the most feared and revered Sith Lords of his ...more
Revan started out as a Jedi Knight with enormous potential and lead the Old Republic Forces against the Mandalorians and Sith only to prevail. He fell to the Darkside and became the Dark Lord of the Sith, now mastering both aspects of the Force. Eventually he had his memory wiped, retrained as a Jedi and Jedi Knight, mastered the force, defeated his former Apprentice and Dark Lord of the Sith: Malak, destroyed his former Empire and brought peace to the Republic.
Revan stands as the greatest Jedi who lived.
He should be number one, the only Jedi to destroy the mandolorians and fought mandolore the ultimate and hid his helmet so they could never have a unified leader. He never needed battle meditation when he kept beating the mandolorians back fight after fight. On top of that his hunger for knowledge lead him to always learn as much as he could. He also found the star forge and managed to become a Jedi and remain on the light side even after having used the star forge which amplifies the dark side in someone when used. He also mastered the force in such a way he could use four lightsabers at once using force telekinesis
She was a dozen times stronger than Luke and drank from Font of Power and bathed in the Pool of Knowledge meaning she knew everything fluently about the light and dark side of the force. If she chose to be the dark side she would be more powerful than the most powerful Sith lord of all time and if she chose the light side she would be more power than the greatest Jedi of all time. It took everything the Son and Daughter had who were the embodiment of the light and dark side of the force just to trap her and she would still break out every thousand years. It took Luke and the Sith combined together to defeat her and she is still not dead. The only way to kill her for good is with The Dagger of Mortis and it would be a brutal battle where many Jedi and Sith would die trying to get to her.
Described as a literal force volcano, and acknowledged to be at least a dozen times a powerful as Luke... When the other Ones died during the clone wars, she stayed alive as the most powerful being ever. it took Luke and Darth Krayt fighting together to defeat her, and both sustained serious injuries.
She literally has all the power of the dark and light sides. It took Luke and Darth Krayt working together to barely defeat her.
There is no question that Abeloth is the most powerful force user of all time.
Lemme just state something. My favourite for most powerful force sensitive is already top. I gave obi wan my vote because this is way too low.
As wise as master yoda and as powerful as master windu. Jedi master obi wan kenobi was the negotiator. always carrying peaceful intentions he fought and defeated anakin skywalker in a way that showed courage and extremely skilled use of his abilities. Managing to defend his old padawan away not wanting to kill him until he attempted to negotiate one last time.. And when he did. He brought him down with ease.
Obi wan was instrumental in making luke skywalker the jedi he was. Forever guiding him through the force. Great tactician, one of the greatest teachers, one of the wisest masters and most powerful jedi of all time. Obi wan deserves a top ten placement without a shadow of doubt to my mind
Twelve, Twelve, Twelve! How crazy, his knowledge of the force is second only to Yoda. Also the only Jedi in the movies to defeat two Sith lords (Anakin and
Maul), along with defeating General Grievous, and surving a battle against Jango Fett and Slave one. He is one of the few to mater life after death, and uses that knowledge to aid Luke through all original movies.
Look at his win list, Darth Maul, Grievous and Anakin at the height of his powers, he also trained Luke and kept the Jedi tradition alive. Impact is everything and he made a big difference.
Obiwan could have shown us I believe a lot more if Anakin did not go all crazy... I hope they make a movie about Obiwans life on tattooing... Then we will see some real power and spiritual journey... He's got my vote.
Found as an infant, and raised by Palpatine/Darth Sidious, to be a Sith Lord. Maul knew Darth Plagueis, and even learnt a bit from him. Maul is underestimated in terms of power, but it is true that he is far from the most powerful.
I really don't think he is that powerful, he is bad a fighting.
This guy is the most powerful darkside of the force, even the light side of the force of anyone can not defeat the dark side that he has, because the only light side that can compensate his ability it is his sister but THE SISTER has died while protecting THE FATHER from THE SON attacks.
He is the dark side he was so powerful that stuff litterly withered around him he was so powerful that his force lightning was type 8 the strongest type while revan at his most powerful state could only use type 5.
He has overpowered Anakin, Ahsoka Tano and Obi wan kenobi 4 seconds, embuded the Dark Side on people
And deflectedmlightsaber with his bare hands. The Father said that if he escaped mortis he would rip apart reality. His lightning carved mountains.
Due to the fact that he is a literal embodiment of the dark side of the force, my vote goes to him.
Should be higher than he is, matches Yoda in force usage and with a light sabre after defeating Obi wan and Anakin. He has also being trained by both Yoda and Sidious meaning he has a good grasp on both elements of the force.
Tyranus should be higher than both Obi-Wan and Mace Windu. He also matched both Yoda and Sidious in combat.
As AotC showed, he is an equal to yoda. It barely took both Obi Wan and Anakin to kill him the 2nd time they've fought
Darth Bane exemplifies the Sith's chosen deliverer, the Sith'ari and created the famous and powerful sith code, the Rule of Two. He reformed not only the aspects of the Sith but created a path for the Sith to follow in the hopes of securing a victory against the Jedi. He was the only Sith Survivor of his time until taking an apprentice. Bane demonstrates himself as one of the most powerful Force-Sensitive Beings in existence.
Thought by darth revan, user of obilask armor, moved planets/moons, he is obviously super powerful, I say he is on par with siaber skills with exar kun, and force with revan or sidious. He just isn't the best stagiest.
Darth Bane should be higher on the list. He had force-lightning so powerful that it could kill almost instantly.
He could use both the dark and light side.
He has a purple lightsaber and could have kicked Count Dooku's ass if the dumb bounty hunter hadn't interfered. He rebounded lightning and directly onto Sideous' face making him look like Vader without the life support.
He can literally beat any sith. He uses a technique that amplifies his own power, and if anyone else tries to use it (Windu tried to teach two) they go insane and have to be put down like wild animals
Mace is literally a badass, he leggit defeated darth sidious and would of killed him if anakin didn't join and his the master of order the only person that out ranks him is yoda.
He masters both of light and dark side of the force. He can control the flow of battle because he is great om balance the force he uses.
Darth Vitiate LITERALLY created everything that Sidious knows/learned, controlled tens of thousands of force-sensitive individuals all at once, and was the only Sith to find a corporeal existence for multiple millennia. Not even a contest. Literally only 2 characters on this list that would last more than 10 seconds against Vitiate at full power and that's Yoda and Sidious.
More powerful than most people on this list. He defeated Revan and Malak and turned them both to the dark side. He was a master of sith sorcery and was able to achieve immortality and live for thousands of years. The only reason he wasn't good with a lightsaber is that during the time he lived lightsaber dueling wasn't that common, but he didn't need it; he could beat people with just his force powers. Powerful sith tend to have pale skin and yellow eyes; he was so powerful that his skin was transparent and his eyes were black. He was very skilled with sith soul transfer and put his soul into a bunch of people at one time. The only others on this list that could be argued more powerful than him on this list are sidious, revan, luke, and maybe mace windu and yoda.
I'm not gonna go about this the same way as others. I'm gonna have him face off against the top 3 people on this list. Of course this argument will be just a teeny tiny one-sided. First up Grand master Skywalker himself. Luke is extremely powerful. But he in reality is weaker than Lucas says he is. Vitiate would most likely hear about his power and would probably drain him and kill him in seconds. But if it was a battle like people want it to be Vitiate would still put Luke six feet under. Next up the chosen one himself Anakin Skywalker. Of course he will be Darth Vader at this point. Vitiate could kill him with force lightning in seconds. But because I don't want to write anymore I'm just gonna say he kills them all with one thought.
He dominated 2 Jedi with the capacity for becoming "The Dark Lord of the Sith" at once. He had the power to utterly empty planets of everything, life, color, sound, smell and even the very force itself. The annihilistic abominable voids in the force he could create through this, places where only he could manipulate the force, due to this ritual would make him unbeatable in these places. Had he been allowed to continue this his draining of the galaxy, this issue would not even be open to debate. I do not consider him a mere Sith and thefore he is excluded from Lucas point about Sidious being the most powerful Sith to have ever lived. The only dark side force users whom might stand above him are "The Father" and "The Son", as they are pure force-beings, capable of tearing reality apart merely by moving through the universe.
The only things that crippled Vitiate were his fear, and his connection to Revan, which allowed Revan to influence him and strengthen his extreme paranoia. ...more
The Father is far superior to Abeloth, and she took GM Luke, Darth Krayt, Boba Fett, an ex-Jedi Knight, a high-ranking NJO Master with a strike team of elite GA Marines, and two protégées to take her down. Vitiate would be treated the same way as GM Luke would by the Father - that is, he would be casually obliterated.
In short, the celestials are extremely overpowered and this should not even be a debate.
He is the Force, the only one who has balance, unlike other grey Jedi, or Fulcrum, He is the one who was supposed to bring balance but he was killed by his son
Really? Needs explanation? He is the father. He is the force.
Should probably be #1
He never did reach his summit, but he is the wisest of all the sith, and he started to learn how to increase his own force potential, and only lost to Sidious, because he never tried to fight him(and was ambushed in his intoxicated sleep). I think at his final moments he gambled for the last time, on being able to complete his technique and defeat death on his own.
Afterall, if Sidious would not be content with standing by him, he would have to conquer his perfect immortality by himself alone. And he partially succeeded, he did manage to repair the damage even as lightning ate away at his flesh. But for some reason, he could not fight the dark side force choke in the same manner. Like he himself once said: "The dark side of the Force had Santhe in its grip and no drug or resuscitation technique was equal to the task of keeping him alive." Words, that he would probably have done well to remember.
Darth Plagueis The Wise is the most powerful force-user. He was so powerful that he could create and even drain life from others. Plus he could overload another force-user's midichlorians with life-force to kill said force-user. Plagueis is the most powerful force-user with the second being Darth Sidious and the third being Yoda.
Darth Plagueis is #1 as far as I can tell in canon right now. He is not dead, he IS Snook. He mastered the power of immortality and is projecting himself to Kylo-Ren and anyone else through the force. His body is intact and stuck in a bacta tank and he is slowly coming back to life. He can kill and ressurect any lifeform, even a powerful force user, at his very whim. I rest my case. (George is my close friend)
Darth Plagueis created Anakin Skywalker through meditation, and trained Sidious in the dark side using quite a few new methods. He created new ways to use the Force that others had never even thought of. Plain and simple, this guy's too legit to be this far down on the list.
I will admit, nihilus isn't quite at the top for most powerful sith, but this list isn't about it. This is about their force abilities, sure anakin is the chosen one, but he didn't know many force abilities. The only people who could rival nihilus' forcE abilities is vitiate and palpatine. Why is Revan so high? It wasn't force he was splendid in, he was an amazing strategist
Ehm, ye Darth Nihilus got beaten by The Exile, and learned his power from Kreia, whom learned hers from watching The Exile after her return. The Exile was an informal apprentice and subservient to Revan, whom got beaten by Vitiate. Why is Nihilus whom is merely a poor weak shadow/imitation of Vitiate placed above him in this list? That's just a bad Joke, I wonder if placing Windu above both might be even worse though...
Obviously powerful. Ate a planet of force users! He is no doubt powerful, its just that nihlus isn't that good with saber combat, is he? The force helps with saber combat. But, he can also drain force, a legendary talent. I just don't know his feats other than that.
Sucking the life out of living things? Consuming entire planets? This is the most powerful force user, living only through the force, feeding by it and becoming stronger by it. He is like an embodiment of the dark side.
Even as a child she was more powerful than all other eventual Jedi. We don't no yet who stopped her eventually, but it's safe to say no one in her era seems to have a fair fight going 1 to 1.
Given that this list is the most "powerful", Savage Opress definitely deserves to be at least in the top ten. If this was a list of the most skillful then he would be in his proper location on this list. Opress was killed while still in the beginning stages of his training. If Savage Opress had been given the same amount of time to train as most of these other force users he would have far surpassed most of them. He is just raw power and could rival Vader with his power of the force.
Seriously, under Rey? Qui-Gon was the Ataru master (below Yoda of course) and taught Obi-Wan. He also is the apprentice of Dooku. He was able to fight with Maul for over ten minutes! With a style that's very exhausting. Even Yoda wasn't able to keep a fight going on that long! Also he managed to turn himself into a force ghost with no teachings about the skill.
Qui-Gon is more powerful than Darth Maul and only lost to him because Maul was more skilled. He was also the one who learned how to come back as a force-spirit. He should definitely be on the top 10.
Wisest among the jedi, even Yoda admits as much in the end.
Because he will find you, and he will kill you.
Surik was able to create force bonds with others around her, which would increase her strength. She had the about to feed off of others, which would help her reestablish her connection to the force and grow ever more powerful. She had the ability of battle pre-cognition, which would let her sense imminent danger. After her death, she chose to not become one with the force, and became a ghost, staying and supporting Revan while the Emperor had him under stasis for centuries, bolstering his will power to not be dominated by Vitiate.
She was a brilliant military general in the Mandalorian wars. She had the ability to sever ones connection with the force.
She mastered many of the lightsaber forms and was considered one of the best duelists in her time.
