Top 10 Strongest Force Users in the Star Wars Universe

The Top Ten
1 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 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 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, 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.

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

2 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.

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.

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.

3 Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader

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.

4 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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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

*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.

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.

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

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

6 Starkiller 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 the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars. Following the death of his mother, the young Marek's father was killed in battle by Darth Vader. Though only a child, Marek possessed an exceptionally strong connection to the Force that the Dark Lord of the Sith sought to exploit. more.

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!

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.

He was trained to kill any remaining Jedi and eventually the Emperor himself. He is mastered in both the light and dark side. His way with the force is like no other, be it the Chosen One or One with the Force, he was Controller of the force in his own way. He killed many Jedi and he would have defeated the Emperor if he didn't sacrifice himself for the sake of the Rebel Alliance. He was cloned and there was a rogue who was even more powerful and had all of the memories of the original Starkiller.

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

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

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

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.

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.

8 Abeloth

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.

Abeloth's strength in the Force was a dozen times that of Luke Skywalker, who was widely recognized as the most powerful Force user in the galaxy. However, Skywalker was able to defeat her despite this.

- excerpt from Wookiepedia

Luke did sense though when he defeated her, that she LET him do it and could have destroyed hime with both hands behind her back.

Abeloth was the Mother of the sons and was ageing while the ageless ones lived on. She was scared to lose the life she loved so she drunk from the font of power and bathed in the pool of knowledge and turned into a twisted immortal being. This story is long so go to wookiepedia for the full story. Takes luke forever to defeat.

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.

9 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

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

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.

10 The Son

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.

Due to the fact that he is a literal embodiment of the dark side of the force, my vote goes to him.

"Due to the fact that he is a literal embodiment of the dark side of the force"

I second that!

The Contenders
11 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 they could from their master, than when they were strong enough, they would kill them, and the cycle would repeat. Bane believed this would allow for the Sith to become strong. Darth Bane makes an appearance in Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Lost Missions, as well as the Darth Bane Trilogy. In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Bane is voiced by Mark Hamill.

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 is the creator of the sith and is older than yoda!

12 Darth Plagueis Darth Plagueis is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe. Originally a Muun named Hego Demask, Plagueis trained under Darth Tenebrous. After he murdered Tenebrous, Plagueis, mentored a young Palpatine. Palpatine eventually joined Plagueis as his Sith apprentice. Plagueis was strong with the Force, possessing the ability to save others from death and to utilize midichlorians to create life. Darth Sidious eventually murdered his master in his sleep. Plagueis is first mentioned in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Plagueis served as the primary focus of a 2012 novel, Darth Plagueis, written by James Luceno.

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 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.

Darth Plagueis was only a legend and one that Yoda stated was false and that the only way that one could create life was to join the force and become immortal. You can't stop other people from dying. And why does everyone think that he was Sideous' master. There is no proof.

13 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.
14 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 in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, and Solo: A Star Wars Story.

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.

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.

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

Maul should be higher, Clone Wars showed more of his power and skill. And I'm pretty sure he can beat someone like Snoke

15 Darth Vitiate

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

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.

16 The Whills
17 Father

Really? Needs explanation? He is the father. He is the force.

Should probably be #1

18 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.

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...

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

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.

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.

19 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.

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.

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

20 High Justice Vaylin

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.

21 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.

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.

22 Exar Kun

Exar Kun is the most powerful blade master but the way he uses his light saber some don't realize that he actually uses dark force power to make his blade faster and even at times powerful enough to short circuit another light saber users weapon. So in conclusion it makes since to make him higher on the list since the reason he can beat Luke, Sidious, and Revan is because he is stronger in the force.

It can be proven that he is better than luke, or sidious, or revan. He used damn FORCE BLASTS! They can be repelled though. Exar kun, inventor of the duel (Or dual) Lightsaber, he was a jedi, then a much powerful sith lord. Best jedi/sith for the hyperspace war.

23 The Inquisitor
24 Meetra Surik

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.

25 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.

Teacher of Obi Wan and master of both light and dark sides of the force. He doesn't really get to show it.

From Wookiepedia "Trained by Count Dooku, Jinn was considered a maverick within the Jedi Order, one who did not always follow the Jedi Code; according to his Padawan, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jinn could have been a member of the Jedi High Council if he had followed the Code. In the years prior to his death, Jinn began studying the secrets of eternal consciousness after death, having long been a student of the Living Force."

He could bring himself back as a spirit!

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.
