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

Revan
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.

      Oh hell no asad darth vader's son may be very powerful but hes not more powerful than the yoda in the star wars the new episodes one two and three. Maybe not even close. i mean like seriously he only had a few years of fighting against darth vader and something like a total of a few days of training from other masters while yoda had a few HUNDRED years of training and hes definitely earned his place at the top of the jedi council

Seconds Ananin is 1st or 2nd with Yoda and Luke should be out off the top 10 instead of Anakin. If he is more powerful than Yoda why he couldnt defend his force Lightning in Episode 6

      Revan was able to become one of the strongest Sith Lords and Jedi Master of all time, that would should account for something. He managed to use his intelligence and charisma more than the other short thinkers of the Jedi Order and the Sith. While most of the Sith were dedicating their lives to a certain aspect of their power, he was actually using his intelligence, training and gained abilities to influence the entire state of the Universe towards an overall good. Unlike the other characters who were reacting to circumstances and antagonists, he was actually planning ahead and trying to build a safer future for everybody.

      Why hasn’t anybody mentioned Asajj Ventress? She may have been a Sith apprentice, but the Rule of Two came into effect and Darth Tyrannus (or Tyranus) (also Count Dooku) betrayed her. She fell in love, but that was the key to her becoming a Jedi and being reinstated into the Order. After having been a Sith apprentice, she must’ve impressed them to be even let into that region of Coruscant.

      Actually the most powerful jedi was anakin skywalker. He was only defeated by luke because he no longer had real arms and legs and grew weak after being defeated by obi wan. He was only defeated by obi wan because he had not reached his full potential. He also had the most medichlorians if any jedi and if you didnt know medichlorians are units of measurements for the force. Anakin is different drom vader as anakin is a jedi vader isnt. Also jacen solo no longer exists if you have seen the new movies you would know he is nown as ben solo and he fell to the dark side.

      Why TF do people keep saying Anakin Skywalker is the best. He wasn't a full committed Jedi like all these on the list such as Luke Skywalker. Master Yoda he is not considered the best because he did not complete the task of the Jedi as they were to do. But I might be wrong according to others. I believe Luke is the best due to him having immense power in the comic books and how he defeated Kilo Ren by becoming one with the force.

      There are so many more powerful jedi who should be on this list. What about the 'Sword of the Jedi' who defeated Jason routenely throughout their childhood and defeated him when he went darkside. I say she should have at least been in the top 5. This list has way too many prequel trilogy Jedi to be accurate.

      We all agree Obi Wan is top 5. Don't forget he had years more train than Ani. Plus Obi got his butt handed to him by lord Dookuu, and Anikan barely broke a sweat the second time they fought. If Anikan fought any Jedi or sith while he was still sane he would I believe win all. But the question that really gets me is luke became so powerful and he didn't begin any training until he was 17. So my question is would the son or daughter be able to defeat Anikan?

      I'm no expert but as far as I know yoda was the only Jedi or sith that truly became one with the force. Anikan had way more mideclorians the him. So I'd have to say Anikan was the most powerful, but best fighter or best choker or lightning user or duelest isn't what the question it's who was the most powerful and to that it would have to be Anikan Darth Lord Vader Skywalker. And if there had to be a #2 it would be Luke and Lea. The force created the Skywalker family so logically they would be the purest living being period. But that's just the opinion of a star wars fan.

      If you truly want to pick the most powerful Jedi or sith it has to be Anikan Skywalker is hands down number 1 for both. He was the only one (Jedi or sith) that was actually created from and by the force itself. Now did he achieve his full power no, but only because he truly only wanted to live his life with Padme and their unborn child. If she had never been in the picture no other had the true power that he possesd. Obi wan defeated him because of he had gone insane due to his vision of the death of the only thing he actually wanted to live for.

      I think Kal Katarn Would have a good chance, so would

      Shaak Tii. The Weakest Jedi on here is definitely Jacen Solo.

      I know this would not make sense but maybe Cade Skywalker

      could possible make it as an mention. But Shaak Tii should

      Of made at least tied with Plo Koon. She was on par with

      Obi-wan Kenobi and Plo Koon, in my opinion she could defeat Darth Maul and Qui-Gon Jinn. But the person that I feel is to high is Revan and Nomi Sunrider. Revan was a very

      skilled Jedi but did not complete his full potential I think him and Mace Windu should be switched. Nomi Sunrider is pretty

      good Jedi but she normally faces against Sith sourcerers

      such as King Olman, Ludo Kresh, and Naga Sadow.

      I don't think she can handle opponents such as Darth Maul.

      She would not be able to hold of his stealthy attacks and

      Quick slashes and Kicks. So I think Nomi Should be moved to

      number 9. If I had to rate each Jedi out of 100 I would rate

      them like this.

      Jacen Solo 85

      Ki- Adi Mundi 86

      Kit Fisto 86

      Plo Koon 89

      Nomi Sunrider 85

      Obi-Wan Kenobi 89

      Mace Windu 94

      Revan 91

      Yoda 96

      Luke Skywalker 98

      The list was very well thought out and I like that you actually give valid and informed reasons for your choices. I would, however, make a couple adjustments. Bastila Shan should be placed on the list and Revan should be moved up to 2 and Yoda down to 3. I fear that most people only care about the movies and don't actually take the time to consider other sources of canon material. And Disney can arbitrarily decide what they want but they can't change what's been written.

      Revan surpassed Yoda in every aspect. True he didn't devote as much time to teaching as did Yoda, but can you really say that Yoda had more of an impact on the Star Wars Universe than Revan?? He literally and single-handedly changed the entire course of the universe not just once, but many times. He mastered all 7 forms of Lightsaber Combat and fought THE Sith Emperor to a standstill. Only not defeating him due to the betrayal by Scourge. One can make the case that he learned all that could be humanly learned about the force. Withstood the raw uncontrolled power of the Dark Side and emerged still Light.

      Actually, Vader never killed sidious. Darth Sidious took form of clones until they cut off his supply of "Corrupted Clones", vader never killed sidious. If my memory serves me right, luke killed sidious afterwards (because luke cut off the suply with others, which means he killed sidious. I think)

      I like Revan at 1 since he was the only person to actually destroy the sith emperor of old actually eliminating the sith but to do the empire and republics blood bath the sith was able to escape in a spiritual form.

      Kyp Durron whipped Luke one on one, over powered him with the force and left him paralyzed, pulled a weapon out of a extremely high gravity gas giant Jupiter like planet.No one else has that much force power. Pulling down a star destroyer into a planet is really nothing compared to fighting the gravity of a gas giant planet. He also turned from the darkside by himself deserves #1...as far as force power

      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?

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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

      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.

      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.
