Top 10 Strongest, Most Powerful Jedi of All Time

Updated on April 18, 2016

Who Were the Strongest Jedi of All Time?

I'm a huge Star Wars fan, and I often asked myself this question. Grading the strongest Jedi and comparing them against each other is hard, but it is a task I have enjoyed.

It took me countless hours, but I came up with my list, and I'm sharing it with you. It is possible that you don't know a lot of these Jedi because they are from several different Star Wars eras, and some of them don't appear in the movies.

It is also probable that you don't agree with this order. If so please leave me your order of choice in the comment section, so I can take a look.

A Jedi's strength may derive from his or her mastery of the lightsaber or the Force—both things a Jedi must master with care in order not to fall to the dark side.

Listing the strongest Jedi, we will be!

If you want to argue about this list, do it so with me LIVE on my stream.

10: Jacen Solo

Jacen Solo
Jacen Solo

Everybody liked Han Solo, and every geek has a poster of Princess Leia in her slave outfit. Well, Jacen Solo is their son.

Assassins, kidnappers, and burglars targeted Jacen, born on the planet Coruscant, from a very young age because his parents were so famous. When Jacen turned thirteen, he and his sister, Jaina Solo, started to train with their uncle, Luke Skywalker, toward becoming Jedi.

Their brother, Anakin Solo, who did not train to be a Jedi, fought in a war against a race called the Vongs, who nearly destroyed the new Republic. Anakin fought without his brother’s aid because Jacen was against violence and refused to fight. However, Jacen did agree to join an assassination force with his brother. When his brother was killed on that mission, Jacen was forced to become the leader, kill his enemies, and come back mourning all the way.

After that particular incident, Jacen Solo was captured by the Vongs and who held him hostage and tortured him for a year. Jacen fell to the dark side of the Force.

He managed to escape captivity and joined with the Jedi again, but his vision was blurry, and he had already fallen. He had a vision that if he didn’t join the Sith, he would kill Luke, and the galaxy would fall into chaos, so he became a Sith to prevent that future.

He was the one that killed Luke Skywalker’s love, Mara Jade. He tortured his apprentice Ben and continued down the road becoming Darth Caedus.

Fate had it that he would be killed by his twin sister Jaina, his former companion.

9: Ki-Adi Mundi

Ki-Adi Mundi
Ki-Adi Mundi

Ki-Adi Mundi was a Cerean who was always highly regarded by the Jedi Council. He even sat on the council before being a Jedi Master—one of the few to ever experience this honor!

His species is known to have a spectacularly low birth rate, so Ki-Adi Mundi was allowed to get married by the Jedi Council. He then gathered up five different spouses and eventually had seven children. This is one point in Ki-Adi Mundi’s favor (joking, I didn’t weigh this one).

Master Ki-Adi Mundi always played a huge role in wars and was on the front lines of every battle; he fought in the clone wars and almost died at the hands of General Grievous.

Ki-Adi Mundi dueled the famous dark Jedi-knight assassin Asajj Ventress and led countless assaults on his enemies. In the battle of Cerea, his entire family was murdered, which made Ki-Adi Mundi even more committed to his cause.

He always entered violent battles with his troops' complete loyalty. He often emerged from the chaos unarmed, and he was one of the only Jedi Masters to begin training while no longer a child (which makes his seat on the Council before becoming a master all the more remarkable). For all of this, he deserves a spot on this list.

8: Kit Fisto

Kit Fisto
Kit Fisto

A powerful Jedi knight and one of the order's greatest generals, Kit Fisto led the armies of the clones against the droid army—but where he becomes invincible is underwater. His underwater lightsaber skill and dexterity is legendary and a real beauty to gawk at.

General Grievous crossed paths with Kit Fisto once, and Fisto almost killed him—but Grievous captured Nahdar Vebb, Kit’s apprentice, and blackmailed him.

On his last evening alive, the great General and Legendary Swordmaster Kit Fisto and Mace Windu went to arrest Senator Palpatine—Darth Sidious.

Only against this Sith Lord did Kit Fisto perish, and he died fighting for what he believed.

7: Plo Koon

Plo Koon moments before his death
Plo Koon moments before his death

Remember Master Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn? Well, Plo Koon was one of his closest friends and allies.

He started his Jedi life as a Guardian, but he wasn’t mediocre at all, he was one of the orders’ greatest fighters ever! Whenever there was a mission that called for a Jedi who could beat overwhelming numbers and do the work of an elite task force alone with his lightsaber skills, Plo Koon was always the chosen one.

Plo Koon was a general in the Clone Wars and even a combatant in the Stark Hyperspace Wars (not related to Tony Stark, of course). The Jedi Masters wanted Plo Koon to join the council, but he refused because he wanted someone he thought to be a greater mind to join—Qui-Gon Jinn.

He joined the Jedi Council later on.

Master Tyvokka and Plo Koon were the best star fighters and were always chosen to partake in dangerous missions. On one of these missions, Tyvokka was shot down and killed, and Plo Koon rallied all of his forces and led his fleet towards a miraculous victory. This success gave him the honor of being a Hero of the Republic.

While his friends Ki-Adi Mundi and Kit Fisto commanded the ground troops, he commanded the air force. Unfortunately, the titan never had a fair fight, since Senator Palpatine ordered the Republic’s troops to shoot down Plo Koon’s fighter, eliminating the threat.

The Fall of the Jedi: Many Jedi Died Here, Including Ki-Adi Mundi and Plo Koon

6: Nomi Sunrider

Nomi Sunrider with her husband's lightsaber.

Nomi Sunrider was married to a Jedi apprentice named Andur. When they were on a trip, they were ambushed by a slimy Hutt’s soldiers who wanted the crystals the apprentice was carrying. Nomi watched as the soldiers assassinated her husband, then picked up his lightsaber—she was to become the strongest female Jedi of all time!

She fought against one of the greatest—in my opinion the greatest—Sith Lords of all time: Exar Kun. She severed another great Sith Lord’s connection to the Force using her immense power and was vital in ending the Great Sith War.

She became the Headmaster of the Jedi Order and rebuilt it because it was in pretty bad shape. Nome Sunrider lived millenniums before the movies, but her story lived on through Jedi Books and tomes of knowledge.

5: Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi-Wan Kenobi
Obi-Wan Kenobi

Ben Kenobi, the old guy from the movies, is the same as Obi-Wan Kenobi—this, I'm sure, you knew. You also probably knew that Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the most popular Jedi in Star Wars history. Did you know that he deserved to be number five in this list though?

He was the master of both Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker, and he was the first Jedi in one thousand years to defeat a Sith Lord in one-on-one combat! He fought and defeated Darth Maul, the Sith that killed his master, Qui-Gon Jinn.

He was also one of the last members of the High Jedi Council.

Ki-Adi Mundi, the Jedi General we talked about earlier, was almost killed by General Grievous – and Obi-Wan Kenobi dueled and killed him, no sweat. He survived Order 66, the Jedi extermination in the video I showed earlier, and he made the hard decision to attack the Dark Lord Vader, Anakin Skywalker, his lost apprentice.

After a battle of epic proportions, Obi-Wan Kenobi defeated a Sith Lord in one-on-one combat yet again and left him to die. He then took the Sith's son, Luke Skywalker, to hide and later taught him the ways of the Force, to fight Darth Vader and Darth Sidious.

Darth Vader dueled Obi-Wan again, but this time Obi-Wan was old and tired. Obi-Wan used his death as an opportunity to encourage Luke to fight with a motive. He became one with the Force, and even after death, he guided Luke to Yoda and acted as an advisor throughout Luke’s life.

4: Mace Windu

Mace Windu
Mace Windu

Before he gave the title to Master Yoda, Mace Windu was the Master of the Jedi Order. He was one of the best lightsaber masters ever and even created the seventh form of lightsaber combat, called Vaapad. Notice that he was the only practitioner of this fighting style that never, ever fall to the dark side.

He killed Jango Fett, the legendary bounty hunter, and was a great general, considered by everyone to be the best Jedi lightsaber duelist that ever lived.

His iconic purple lightsaber was colored by a rare crystal that gave it that color. The powerful Sith Lord Count Dooku escaped Mace Windu, after Mace dueled him and won.

Kit Fisto was with Mace Windu on his final night—they went to arrest Darth Sidious and Sidious killed Kit Fisto, dueling Mace Windu after. When Mace Windu had almost won, Anakin Skywalker betrayed him, and the Great Jedi Master died by treachery.

3: Revan


Recognized by the Jedi Order as an amazing military strategist, Revan extremely charismatic and influential. He was the poster child Jedi: a hero and a champion. The Mandalorians, a race of extremely hard combatants (extinct by the movie eras) called him the Butcher.

Revan was a great Sith Lord, but the Jedi Order captured him and cleaned his memory, so they could use this formidable warrior for their own cause. This was something the Jedis had never done before and shows you the respect they had for Revan.

Revan fell in love with Bastilla, and together they faced Revan’s apprentice, the new Sith Lord Malak. Revan invaded countless Sith bases, butchered infinite numbers of Sith soldiers, and killed dozens of Sith Apprentices and Masters until finally he killed Darth Brandon—Malak’s apprentice.

Darth Malak captured Bastilla and converted her to the dark side of the Force, but Revan wouldn’t give up on love, dueling her and defeating her. She then asked him to turn to the dark side with her and assume his true identity. Raven refused and went on to kill Malak. Bastilla regained her senses for love and fought by the Republic as well.

Revan was declared a Hero of the Republic.

2: Master Yoda

Master Yoda
Master Yoda

This small guy was the Master of the Jedi Order and Leader of the Jedi Council the longest. Yoga trained a lot of Jedi, and he was known for his mastery of the Force and skills with lightsabers and vibroblades.

Even knowing that he had immense power, Yoda chose to teach the younglings and be a master, making the youngest of the orders receptive to knowledge and experience. He dedicated his whole life to teaching rather than fighting.

The ultimate Sith Master, Darth Sidious, dueled Master Yoda, but Yoda couldn’t beat him. He escaped, saying, “Into exile I must go. Failed, I have…"

1: Luke Skywalker

Luke Skywalker
Luke Skywalker

Luke was trained by Obi-Wan Kenobi and fought for the Rebels, representatives of the Republic. He became a Galactic Civil War hero, and he was also a stellar X-Wing pilot.

Luke destroyed the first Death Star, a severe blow to the Empire, and he invaded the station to stop the Empire from developing the second Death Star. During this mission, Vader caught him and brought him to the Emperor, Darth Sidious.

Sidious ordered them to fight each other and watched in delight as son fought father. Luke won and refused to turn to the dark side. Darth Sidious then used Force Lightning on Luke, but Vader turned to the light when he saw his son suffering, killing Sidious and dying shortly after.

After this, Luke founded a new Jedi Order and started training Jedi, becoming Grand Master.

Later, when Luke's nephew, Jacen Solo, killed Luke's love, Mara Jade, he struggled to understand why Jacen had fallen to the dark side. Luke was always labeled as invincible.

He could see the future and had abilities that no other Jedi ever had.

      This was a pretty interesting read. I'm just wondering what else you though about when putting Luke Skywalker on the top of the list.

    • Rui Carreira profile image

      Rui Carreira 3 years ago from Torres Novas

      During the Era of the movies, Luke Skywalker isn't very impressive, but if you knew the story afterwards, Luke becomes a Jedi Demigod pictured as invencible and with every super power in the world. Really that guy is OP (Overpowered) and he feels like Goku in the Star Wars story.

    • Ben Blackwell 3 years ago

      Oh, ok. I never have read anything afterwords. That does make sense though, since that prophecy in the prequel movies says he will be very powerful.

    • Rui Carreira profile image

      Rui Carreira 3 years ago from Torres Novas

      The prophecy states that a prodigy kid would end the war and establish peace, that prophecy is about Anakin Skywalker - and he fulfill it by killing Darth Sidious (Senator Palpatine).

      When Luke faced Vader and won against him, Sidious started to kill Luke with force lightning and Anakin (Darth Vader) seeing his son suffering, killed Sidious fulfilling it.

      So, even though many think Luke is the kid from the prophecy, Vader was... :)

      Pretty interesting story, Star Wars :D

    • Ben Blackwell 3 years ago

      Oh, ok. Thanks.

    • Vani 3 years ago

      Obi Wan should have been higher on this list!!!

    • Ann1Az2 profile image

      Ann1Az2 3 years ago from Orange, Texas

      Well, this article interested me because I'm an old (original) Star Wars fan. Consequently, I didn't recognize about half of these guys. I do disagree with you on one thing, though. In my mind, Yoda should have been first and Luke second. The reason is the student is never as good as the master and Yoda was the master.

    • Ben Blackwell 3 years ago

      Do you take that as an axiom that applies to life itself? If so, I strongly disagree.

    • Rui Carreira profile image

      Rui Carreira 3 years ago from Torres Novas

      But, which of the Jedi there should go down to make him go up?

    • Rui Carreira profile image

      Rui Carreira 3 years ago from Torres Novas

      There are countless and countless of cases where students surpass masters, and Luke did.

      The masters aren't always stronger than the students - take the sith, it's always the apprentice that kills the master.

    • Rui Carreira profile image

      Rui Carreira 3 years ago from Torres Novas

      Agree with you Ben, masters get surpassed by students all the time. I was the music teacher of a lot of guys that now know way more than me. I get surpassed all the time... it happens!

    • Ann1Az2 profile image

      Ann1Az2 3 years ago from Orange, Texas

      There is a difference between teachers and masters. Masters got that way because they are the best - the strongest and the wisest. You will never convince me that Luke was better than Yoda. I think Lucas made that clear when Yoda fought in the last movie. Lucas showed him with tricks we had never seen before, proving Yoda was a true Jedi master.

    • Rui Carreira profile image

      Rui Carreira 3 years ago from Torres Novas

      Lucas himself made cannon that Luke Skywalker is the strongest of all time. Lucas even said that! And Luke became Jedi Grandmaster after the third movie.

    • Hello 2 years ago

      Why isn't anakin skywalker in that list

    • Rui Carreira profile image

      Rui Carreira 2 years ago from Torres Novas

      Doesn't deserve it, he went down in the lava pit before unlocking his full potential

    • Frank Lucas 2 years ago

      Quick question I'm sure you know your stuff, but I don't see Satele Shan on this list and some of these Jedi weren't even grand masters and Satele Shan is. Also I see Kit Fisto on this list you must have seen how quick Darth Sideous killed him in Episode 3 . I agree with almost of these though, except for Kiandi Mundi and Plo koon.

    • Rui Carreira profile image

      Rui Carreira 2 years ago from Torres Novas

      Even Satelle would have died on order 66 if on the same circumstances as plo koon and kiadi mundi.

      However, I have to say that when I wrote this, Satelle Shan wasn't yet of my knowledge since the game SWTOR is quite recent and I haven't bumped into her anywhere else

    • Frank Lucas 2 years ago

      I feel sorry for people like you you go out and make your own list of top ten jedi and people criticise you for it please don't misinterprete My comments as critical remarks

      What would you say starkiller would be a sith or jedi ?

    • Rui Carreira profile image

      Rui Carreira 2 years ago from Torres Novas

      Thinking about Starkiller, he was trained in both Sith and Jedi combat, much like Revan. As far as I'm concerned, he could be the greatest and strongest Jedi who ever lived - BUT his training was inadequate because as much as he dominated combat training, his teachings at the Jedi temple were for so little time he missed his potential.

      When I made the list, I am considering Jedis as a whole, that includes raw power and lightsaber combat strength and skill of course, but also include a lot of some aspects like Force power, the ability to use the Force, the knowledge of the Force, secret techniques, forbidden powers and more.

      Starkiller was a formidable fighter, but while he did get Sith and Jedi training, his training overall was incomplete - not to mention his time at the Jedi temple was short and he focused all of his training in combat training.

    • Obi-number-wan 2 years ago

      Obi-wan beat vader, vader beat Palpatine, Palpatine and Vader beat windu, Palpatine beat Yoda, vader beat Luke (once)....Obi-wan never lost with his light saber on :)

    • Frank Lucas 2 years ago

      So in your opinion would starkiller be on your lost considering he beat darth vader shaak ti kazdan paratus rahm kota and almost sidious himself

      have you noticed my comments on both top 10 pages

      although on some of these jedi I don't qiute agree but the thing I like most about your pages is that with all your points you thoroughly explain why you think what you think I've really liked all the pages ive seen of yours

    • Rui Carreira profile image

      Rui Carreira 2 years ago from Torres Novas

      What about Vader killing him?

    • Rui Carreira profile image

      Rui Carreira 2 years ago from Torres Novas

      Yes Frank, I noticed your comments and as I said I really enjoy discussing it with you!

      I actually considered Starkiller for the list, but it is tricky.

      For once, Vader was old, half-machine and a remnant of what Anakin was. If Anakin was to fight Starkiller, I think Anakin would win with no problems. The thing that makes it tricky though, is the fact that I don't know whether to consider him a Jedi or not - just as Revan. Revan made it into the list, while Starkiller didn't because I do not have enough on him. There was not much about him and he didn't reach his full potential, trained with a master, he is a character people love and I'll give you that, that's why I considered him, but if we have to analyze we'll have to take into account not only what bits of story we know from the character but also what others think of him on both sides of the coin.

      Starkiller was great and all, but there is no reference to him on the original trilogy even though he would have died a few years back, and supposedly made a big impact.

      The Force Unleashed cannon is overly commercial and was a first try at building cannon with other media, so in my opinion they kind of pushed it with him - when you look at the facts, almost all Jedi mentioned left a long trail of clues to their existence, had people "worshipping" them, had impact on the main stories (although I know Galen jumpstarted the rebellion), and Starkiller doesn't leave too much crumbs.

      Some of these Jedi were "worshipped" for millenia while nobody talks about Starkiller after 2 years of his death.

      His only legacy was his family crest which, apparently, nobody knows about.

      I ultimately didn't include it because of the gaps FU leaves, while SKOTOR was careful not to "break" the cannon.

      Thanks for the compliments. Your comments made these articles be worthwhile :)

    • Trenton Davis 2 years ago

      To be honest, I believe Revan was not weaker than Yoda. In fact, many times Revan was stated as the force itself. Revan was very, very powerful and there was not one in the galaxy that did not fear Revan. I do not think Sidious, or Order 66 itself could have ended Revan. He killed far stronger armies than that on his own.

    • Rui Carreira profile image

      Rui Carreira 2 years ago from Torres Novas

      And that is why he is my favorite Jedi of all time :D He is just amazing. But even with his power, Revan is no match for the ones topping the list as a whole. It's just my opinion - and I love Revan.

    • Hello 2 years ago

      I'm pretty sure if Luke could live to 900 like yoda, he would become a god

    • Adam 23 months ago

      Wondering what your thoughts are on thon. He was a strong one, wasn't he?

    • Jack 23 months ago

      Luke I'd say was the most powerful, the fight's between Vader and him Lucas said were battles of emotion and power not fancy swordplay. Sidious would not have faired well against either 1v1 at that point, but Luke couldn't bring his father back by beating him alone. I agree with the prophecy however that was states earlier but as Luke was of Anakin he helped complete the prophecy.

    • Tyler 22 months ago

    • Dan 21 months ago

      So I'm guessing your knowledge of Star Wars only consists of the clone wars and those KOTOR games looking at this list ... Shame there are waaaay more powerful jedi than most on this list. Only a few worthy of top 10

      Rui Carreira 20 months ago from Torres Novas

      Nope, and I disagree!

    • Russ 19 months ago

      Poor Obi Wan... Although defeating Gen. Grievous, Darth Maul, AND the young Darth Vader and being the first Jedi in a thousand years to defeat two Siths in single combat he gets a lowly score.

      Not the "greatest" but the most powerful Jedi should be listed as:

      1) Luke

      2) Windu (because he beat Sidious one on one - before Anakin jumped in - and could have also taken out everyone Obi Wan killed, he also made short work of Jengo Fette)

      3) Obi Wan

      4) Yoda

    • Starwars 19 months ago

      The only reason mace windu beat sidious is because sidious let him to test anakin mace is not stronger than yoda if you want to know how strong sidious watch the fight between yoda and sidious

    • Russ 19 months ago

      Then that moves Obi Wan up to #2 with Yoda #3 and Mace #4.

    • Jason 17 months ago

      No kyle katarn? He's the chuck norris of star wars.

    • Joe 17 months ago

      Windu should have been above Yoda, just saying. He actually beat Sideous, while Yoda failed. Enough said. Anakin should also be on here, as he was a Jedi at one point himself (at the height of his power). Not top 5, but still should have knocked any of the 6-10's off the list.

    • billington 17 months ago

      Not one comment about Jaina solo.... The most recent blade of the jedi!! She took down darth caedus and could easily handle half the jedi on this list. I rank her third, only behind yoda and luke.

    • ME 17 months ago

      Did I miss something? Anikan Skywalker/Darth Vader doesn't make the top ten? Inaccurate.

    • Hoth 16 months ago

      Were is General Hoth. All the ones in the list except for one are from the last 100 years of the order. By the way Kenobi is much higher than 5

    • FivesFTW 16 months ago

      " Yoga trained a lot of Jedi".... Interesting

    • clay 16 months ago

      I think revan was the greatest of all time. I mean he fought the emporer. Not sidios but the true emporer. He withstood his mind attacks and greatly influenced him not to attack the republic. Not to mention he is a master of both the light and dark side. Savior, villain, hero, conquerer. He was all these and one of the few to ever find out how closesly the dark and light are intertwined.

    • Casper Zanzibar 15 months ago

      People keep saying that Obi-Wan should be higher up, but he shouldn't even be on this list. Obi-wan for a general Jedi is very strong, but isn't impressive compared to the best sword masters and force users. His defeat of Maul was more due to Maul underestimating him, and Lucas's lack of foresight, and his victories over Grevious and Anakin, were because of his mastering of form 3, Seresu. The form is all about defense and is perfect against duelists who prefer high attack rates and power strikes. This is shown in the same movie, during his duel with Dooku, who defeated him quite easily; note Anakin defeated him and 3 days later Obi beat Anakin. It just comes down to that you can't use logic, such as, a beat b and b beat c so a beats c, or anything similar to decide who is better, you need to disect their inividual abilities, note what the cause of their victories are, and then list feats.

    • A curious individual 15 months ago

      If anakin were to never fall in the lava pit, how strong could he have become? I really only know about the movies (all 6) and the unleashed games. Knowing that he had the highest medi cholirians or however you spell it, what do you guys speculate to his potential power that he never reached because of it.

      was Revan not a Jedi first? then turned by the Emperor to the dark side, alongside his friend Malak, but Revan was turned back to the light side and then defeated Malak, and returning his future wife to the side of the light as well

    • MannySolo 14 months ago

      There is no way Luke is the greatest. Luke might be a galactic hero, but Anakin, Mace Windu and Yoda surpassed Luke in skillsets. He killed a past his prime Vader, but there is no doubt that Anakin would destroy Luke.

    • Aleme 13 months ago

      Ummm wtf Anakin Skywalker was superior to Obi-Wan. The only reason Obi-Wan put up a fight and defeated him was because Anakin's emotions limited his full power. Not to mention Obi-Wan knowing Anakin like the back of his hand, the same can be said for Anakin but it played in favor of Obi-Wan's style more. Lastly Obi-Wan didn't even best him in skill, Anakin just was so enraged and arrogant that he ended up sealing his own fate. Anakin really would have beaten Obi-Wan even with his limitations if he didn't manage to obtain the high ground at the most convenient time seeing as Anakin was exploiting Obi-Wan's weakness to physical strikes a lot. Lastly it's stated in interviews that Obi-Wan's dueling abilities are an 8/9 while Anakin was a 9/9 rivaling Yoda and Sidious. Lucas even stated if Anakin didn't get injured he could have beaten Sidious. On top of all that it's just ridiculous to place Anakin below the scrubs you picked for 10-7. Luke shouldn't be #1 since the only canon material are the movies, the CWs, Rebels, and upcoming films.

    • Emma 13 months ago

      It's quite an interesting list , but may I ask why isn't Anakin Skywalker on your list? Wasn't he said to be the "chosen one"? Yoda did say he will be the most powerful Jedi , and he is.

    • Alassea 13 months ago

      I thought you were pretty close with most of this, except for the fact that even Mace Windu claimed that Obi-Wan Kenobi was a Master of the Lightsaber, until your number one spot!

      Luke Skywalker is the most useless Jedi to have ever lived, did no one even watch any of his saber duels? Obi-Wan would have sliced him in half in about half a second flat!

      And don't bother about how the books turned him into some sort of legendary Jedi. He was pathetic to begin with and compared to the Jedi of the Old Order like Obi-Wan, he wasn't even worth the time to watch. I even prefer Anakin Skywalker to Luke, and I can't stand Anakin.

      Never liked Luke when I first saw the movies, let alone in the books. I'd remove him completely from your list, as he doesn't deserve to be there, move everyone up one except Jacen Solo, and put Qui-Gon Jinn in as number 9.

      I still don't know... Rey is still a mystery. We haven't seen too much of her power since all stars aligned for her to have a good performance in the last movie and I don't think the movie was a good indicator of her strength. Let's wait for more content.

      This list is also pre-Disney, so I'll keep studying this new lore to write a Disneyverse list as well.

      Well, he never reached his full potential. He would be the most powerful Jedi, Yoda said, but that was if he lived up to his potential, which is different than what he really achieved.

      I value your opinion, but since this list is pre-Disneyverse I have to consider the EU content, which really sets up Luke as a God.

      That's hugely debatable!

      No Bastila Shan? Her battle meditation ability is OP.

      Hmmm i do think anakin should be on here even without reaching his potential. Even Mace said that he does not have the pure force powet that anakin and Yoda has. Added to beating count when he brushed obi wan aside like a bug, obi beat anakin because he was conflicted and was more a over extention of himself than a out and out win for obi, but he did win so that says something. Obi deserves his spot, mastering form 3 but i think anakin ranks higher or on par at the very least. Luke is the most powerful jedi, personally i would move jacen solo up to above the older masters for his sheer diversity in the force, other than luke he cpuld do more than any other of his era, plus killing mara was a feat! Jaina to me has only one feat to her name but a great feat. If i am not mistaken anakin solo was considered a very powerful jedi and was destined to be one of the most powerful before he died, so i dont see where saying he was not trained as a jedi is accurate.

      The thing is Obi-Wan's Style is Countered by Count Dooku's Style, and Anakin's Style Counters Count Dooku's Style. On the other hand, Obi-Wan's Style counters Anakin's Style.

      Think about it like an elaborate game of Rock-Paper-Scissors.

      That's why Count Dooku got beaten by Annie while beating Obi-Wan, and Obi-Wan won against Annie.

      It has to do with their fighting styles - Agressive, Calculist, Defensive.

      I doubt that Rey can become that great. If you will remember the biggest problem with jedi is the age they are trained. Luke was an exception ill admit that. But like Vader once you establish fear anger and hate you cannot become a powerful jedi. Diseny will make Rey out to be the strongest. But from a cannon perspective luke failed his training with Yoda, and Rey is too old to be any good. They make her out to be much better at using the force than anyone should be with no training.

    • Carter English 12 months ago

      Yoda would definitely be one and Obi -wan should edliest be mumber two and Anakin he's defnetly one of the best I think Mace Windu should be number Three and Luke five and where's Qui Gon Gin

    • Guest 12 months ago

      10. Ben Skywalker

      9. Bastila Shan

      8. Kyle Katarn

      7. Mace Windu

      6. Jaina Solo

      5. Jedi Exile

      4. Obi-Wan Kenobi

      3. Revan

      2. Yoda

      1. Luke Skywalker

    • WTF 12 months ago

      Anakin isnt on this list?? what in the world are you guys smoking...

    • The force 12 months ago

      YODA should be number1

    • Random 11 months ago

      Ok guys guys, I don't think Revan is even cannon (I think) so he is just legends and may never ever exist (Which sucks) Plus Luke was said to be the most powerful Jedi ever even by George Lucas whom is the creator of Star Wars. Most of you are just mentioning many individuals whom were during the time of Star Wars The Old Republic (Including Satele) which isn't connon anymore or so for now. I think Yoda deserves NO.1 but sadly he can't, oh and he didn't acually lose the fight to Sidious. He only got the worse of the blow and received more damage then Sidious and so he retreated.

      This list was pre-Disney purchase. Now virtually everyone is non cannon.

      Nice list, Thanks.

    • Guest 8 months ago

      Anakin Skywalker should be on the list since the clone wars is canon that means that he had enough power to control the daughter and the son on mortis.

    • DEATH KILLER 8 months ago

      Hey author just one thing to tell you rev an is on the dark side not good anymore however Bastila killed Revan(no offense)

    • xXdeviltwinsXx 8 months ago

      Aanakin is the best Jedi because he is the chosen one Luke is not

    • Really? 8 months ago

      Luke sky walker was not the most powerful Jedi, just the luckiest , he would have died to sideuose if it wasn't for his father Vader, yoda reached much more power, controls , saber skills and power in the force than he did, yoda is the ultimate

    • Suyash 7 months ago

      Anakin is a sith legend

    • Obi-wan 7 months ago

      I was wondering why Obi-wan is not #1. He is the best.

      Jacen Solo is legends ! He doesn't exists

    • jermayne 6 months ago

      Not to mention Luke can fly and sometimes was mistaken for dark vader because he was super powerful and again HE CAN FLY

    • Isaac 6 months ago

      Hahaha I love these comments. Some of them HAVE to be trolls. Like Obi-wan saying "I was wondering why Obi-wan is not#1. He is the best."

      I really like your list. I appreciate that you included legitimate explanation for why you chose whom you chose. I do not agree with your list perfectly, but at the same time I think you know more about Star Wars than I do. For example I didn't even know Raven became good, because I had always heard him referred to as Darth Raven.

      I also like the list that "Guest" posted a few posts up (except Mace is better than Obi).

      Lastly, I love Obi-wan, he is actually my favorite character and has always been so, but I disagree with most of these people commenting. I think your list puts him at a good spot. I agree with your top 5, except I think Raven and Yoda should be switched, even by your own explanations of their power.

      Thanks for the list! Glad the comments are still going strong.

      There is NO way Luke sky walker is number 1 if you know who qui gon jinn, NKata Del Gormo and a TON of other Jeri's are way stonger

      Luke sky walker becomes a god after return of the Jedi. Agree with list except I'd have qui gon around 8th

      Exar Kun for an admirable mention? Would make top 10 Sith Lords?

    • Scott 3 months ago

      There are way stronger jedi than ki adi mundi, kit fisto, and plo koon. One would be Anakin solo who was stronger than jacen and jaina solo. Luke was looking to him to replace him eventually as grand master. Jaina solo who was just as strong as jacen. Then lastly kyp durron who was second only to luke skywalker in force stregnth. Ive read all the novels, comics, and all the source books for star wars which confirm this.

    • Scott 3 months ago

      Your sith lords are spot on and the rest of your jedi list is pretty solid to except for the things i mentioned earlier. Id say a few honorable mentions for the jedi would be corran horn whos powers are pretty different than other jedi, kyle katarn who was able to become a master even though he was a grown adult before he started training, and lastly star killer from the force unleased for the sith list and jedi.

      Thanks for participating man, this list is getting some age on it, and I'd say with fresh content coming out regularly this type of list is best updated regularly, I am leaving it as it is though, fans of my generation can relate to it. Besides, I have been negligent on the past content updates.

      I think that we have to judge them by their potential and if they achieved it.

      For example if one has the max potential of 100 where did he get.

      Lets take Raven and say he had a max potential (100) did he max it? I will say no, as he left the order to early and did not complete his training to fight in the war, he was rash and arrogant in the beginning and disobeyed a direct order. He did fall to the dark side and got his memory wiped that also affected hi abilities and from my point of view stopped him from being the greatest.

      Now was Yoda the greatest? Again i would say no as he had a potential of around 90 more or less. But he did reach this potential mastering the light side.

      I think both Starkiller and Vader had high potential 95-100 but they did not reach it on the other hand Luke also had high potential 95-100 but later on he fulfilled it tho's making him the strongest "of his time"

      You can just compare them to current day athletes. Messi and Ronaldo ar at the top but they where many kids with high potential but did not max it do to idiocy, arrogance, lack o training or mental strength, injuries and many other reasons.

      Just my 2 cents.

      Why is Anakin sky walker not on this list I know he turned to the darkside but he was still a strong Jedi before turning to the dark side?
