Strongest Force Users


The Top Ten

1 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.

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.

You people are seriously retarded. Luke Is LITERALLY one with the force. ONE. Any idea what that means? I'll give you a clue. NO force user EVER has obtained that... EVER. In episode 7, It's rumored that the force (not Luke), but the force levitates objects around him without his knowledge. THAT'S how powerful he Is. George Lucas himself said that Luke Is even the most powerful. And forget these video game characters.

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.

Because Lucas said he was.

2 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

He had been conceived by the force, he is almost not human. If he had not been crippled by Obi wan Kenobi then he would learn the dark side of the force and become the greatest Sith Lord in the Galaxy, he would have no competition. He became a Jedi Knight at a very young age, and was stolen the right of Jedi Master because the council did not trust them. His only flaw was his arrogance.

He was regarded as more powerful with the force than yoda. Period.

3 Darth Sidious Darth Sidious

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

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.

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.

The most powerful force user to ever exist and that ever will exist. - pancake2015

4 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.

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.

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.

While his power with the force may not be the greatest, his knowledge of the force and how it affects the universe certainly gives him an edge over younger users like luke and revan.

He is so powerful that he learnt all possibilities with the force that Luke learnt from him

5 Starkiller 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 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.

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.

Vader is an ant compared to

6 Darth Plagueis Darth Plagueis Darth Plagueis is a fictional character from Star Wars. Originally a Muun named Hego Demask, Plagueis trained under Darth Tenebrous. After he murdered Tenebrous, Plagueis, disguised as businessman Hego Demask, mentored a young Palpatine. Palpatine eventually joined Plagueis as his Sith apprentice. Plagueis more.

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 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 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.

Plagueis could save others from death, and create life using midichlorians. He should be much higher. - pancake2015

7 Revan Revan

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

*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.

It’s not even a contest. Revan mastered all aspects of the force, he would surely destroy all the above

8 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.

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

One of the most BADASS jedi ever, nearly killed anakin at about half of his potential (Which he has a lot) He also could've beaten vader (He planned to loose) - jatinxyz

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.

He beat Maul as an apprentice defeated Grievous without a lightsaber and only lost to Doku twice and the second time it was for plot convenience and threw a fight against Vader to give Luke something to fight for easily one of the best.

9 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.

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 got a bald head which improves his force and I heard a rumor that if your eyes look really serious it will improve your force a lot

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.

VAAPAD AND FORCE CRUSH! Need I say more? - riki1234

10 Darth Vitiate

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

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.

To be able to suck the life from all living beings, to suck the force from an entire planet should put him in 2nd place on this list. I cannot remember what the books said but if I remember correctly, due to him able to suck the life force from all creatures he was able to live for thousands of years. Vitiate was able to manipulate multiple people at once and had great ability to the force. I honestly believe he wouldn’t have been able to stand against the Father and Son

The Contenders

11 Darth Bane 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 am secretive order with one master and one apprentice. The apprentice would learn more.

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.

I still believe Darth Bane escaped death to wait for an apprentice strong enough to rule by pushing his force spirt into his apprentices mind and has done so forever passing into each sith (without their knowledge) throughout the rule of two until spreading himself (like Voldemort's horcrux) into holocrons so he could patiently wait for the Galaxy to believe the dark side is gone and the sith line ended only to return when any who might oppose him would be too weak in the force and unprepared for war.

Darth Bane should be higher on the list. He had force-lightning so powerful that it could kill almost instantly.

Why is he so low on this list? - riki1234

12 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.

There is no question that Abeloth is the most powerful force user of all time.

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.

Compared to Abeloth, Luke is nothing - riki1234

13 Count Dooku Count Dooku

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.

Better than luke, who should be like 20th on this list - riki1234

Tyranus should be higher than both Obi-Wan and Mace Windu. He also matched both Yoda and Sidious in combat.

14 The Son

He is the dark side of the force I mean COME ON PEOPLE the only reason why he is listed so far down is because he didn't really exemplify his powers, due to the fact that the father and Anakin kept him down. HIS FATHER COULD HOLD A LIGHTSABER USING THE FORCE anyone who is being repelled by that kind of power but can still use the force is incredible. I'm not saying he's #1 but he should be further up

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.

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

15 Darth Nihilus Darth Nihilus

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. - jatinxyz

He was invincible immortal and the only reason he was defeated was because he used his power recently to kill a planet and he had a bond with visas marr whom the exile used against him to weaken him enough to be killed

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.

All he has to do is suck the force out of everyone above him making him the most powerful

17 Father

Living nexus of the force, immortal, a celestial, father to the living embodiment of the light and dark sides of the force (the daughter and the son) and the only one of two beings in the universe powerful enough to defeat and balance both sides of the force at the same time, the other being anakin skywalker who was actually meant to take over the role of the father if the father died, the guy is for all intents and purposes a god of the force, he is a being of pure force and lives on mortis which is the conduit for the entire force in the universe, the guy is insanely powerful, literally only one guy in the entire universe is even remotely close to his power and that's anakin, his children have the ability to tear the fabric of the universe apart because they are that powerful and he is more powerful than both combined! He can repel a lightsaber blade with his bare hands! The only person that ever could have defeated him if he was lucky would be Darth Vitiate if he had managed to ...more

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

19 Qui-Gon Jinn 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.

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.

He's the strongest in the force I mean come on he was able to turn him self in to a force ghost and teach Yoda, Obi-wan who told Anakin

20 Rey Rey Rey is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by British actress Daisy Ridley. First appearing as the central character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey is a scavenger who was left behind on the planet Jakku when she was a child, and later becomes involved with the Resistance's more.

Rey defeated Kylo Ren, who is obviously on the verge of becoming the most powerful Sith from the movies, and quite easily at that. Yes, he was injured. Still, she taught herself the Force without training. I think her beating Kylo Ren speaks more for her power than Kylo's weakness, because the film established that Kylo Ren is NOT WEAK.

Rey is without doubt potentially the most powerful force user. No training and can use mind tricks and force pulls that overpowered Kylos. She then defeated him and in my opinion still would have even if he wasn't injured as she would just use her Mary Sue abilities. Rey is without a doubt the most powerful force user ever and should be number 1 for her monster force potential. It's over 1 million.

You can already see what she does in the trailer for episode 8. She is going to be 5x better than anakin and luke.

Rey is a god of the force and is easily more powerful than Kylo Ren and once trained will destroy him. In episode eight it will probably only take her a few hours to become trained.
