Strongest Force Users

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.

Brought an end to the Empire, converted Anakin to the light side, and also subdued him

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.

He went toe to toe with a force god (Abeloth) and once manipulated a BLACK HOLE. He moved INFINITY. I think he deserves this spot

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.

2 Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader

Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader was literally the Chosen One. I have abet that Anakin/Vader could've been the most powerful force user. If Darth Vader survived Palpatine's lightning after he killed him the first time he would've been literally the most powerful force user.

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

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.

Has the highest potential of any being in history. Ripped a hole in the force. Overpowered son and daughter at same time. Equal power to the father. Caused a planet to fall into chaos just by meditating. (ALL CANON). How is Luke stronger when he only gets his potential from anakin?

3 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.

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.

He spent years manipulating a whole council of jedi, and managed to turn the literal chosen one to the dark side

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.

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.

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 has trained the dooku, who's trained qui gon, who trained obi wan, who trained Luke and Anakin. At worst, one of those is 3rd best force user.

Yoda is way above the skywalkers as far as force ability, force potential is of no use on this list.

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 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.

He is a super powerful Jedi, mastering both the dark AND light sides of the force

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.

Hmmm what is he doing at 5 literally defeated vader and sidious who are both higher on this list

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.

6 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

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

Revan overthrew all of his many masters and created a lightsaber from pieces of scrap. He defeated an entire army single handedly ( no I mean he literally defeated them with one hand) he knew every force power in the Galaxy. So he deserves this spot of even higher.

I fail to see how Sidious was the best saber duelist only because he mastered all 7 forms. Others have too, but Revan was able to use them together in combination. in my opinion Revan would beat any force user in a fair all out battle; and I wonder if Sidious would survive using a wormhole in duel distance?

7 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

8 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 first appeared in Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace, and has also appeared in The more.

Darth maul is not that strong with the force but he is a tattooed ninja assassin with horns and his skin color is red with black tattoos

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.

No one likes Darth Maul he ded

Darth maul the Dathomirian Prince is a vicious and very cunn

9 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

He has trained Anakin and Luke, arguably to their full potential. He uses diplomacy, and charisma (probably along with the force) to solve many issues.

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)

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.

10 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.

He can rip apart the universe by traveling ;-; I rest my case

The Contenders

11 Count Dooku Count Dooku of Serenno, from the House of Dooku is a fictional character from the Star Wars franchise, appearing in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith as a primary and minor antagonist respectively. He was portrayed by Christopher Lee and more.

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

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

he tied with yoda in a duel

12 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 more.

He was strong enough to be a force ghost as Sith before any Jedi had mastered the ability, he should be way higher

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.

13 Snoke Supreme Leader Snoke is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. He is a CGI character voiced and performed by Andy Serkis.

The strongest character in star wars

He is the powerful force but he may not have a lightsaber

Secretly a priest of the force

The most manipulative character in all of star wars

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

9? Really? This guy was the most powerful Jedi in the Jedi order, he even beat Sidious. Using Vaapad is not just skill with lightsabers, it's a tremendous amount of force use as well.

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 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.

15 Darth Vitiate

Probably still alive and waiting to take over someone else's body to finish his galaxy consumption and become a literal god.

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.

16 The Whills

The narrators of star wars

17 Father

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

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.

Should probably be #1

18 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 has complete control over life and death through the force.

He was Darth Sidious’ master, The only reason why he was overthrown was because Sidious was to afraid to fight him while he was awake

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.

19 Darth Nihilus

The strongest ever,how is he so low on the list? And how is Windu 9th,he is in top 5!

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.

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.

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.

your gay

21 Savage Opress

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.

Not the best

22 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

Best hair style=most power

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 mastered many of the lightsaber forms and was considered one of the best duelists in her time.

She was a brilliant military general in the Mandalorian wars. She had the ability to sever ones connection with the force.

She beats kreia and the two ultimate with lords her rank must be higher than them
