Star Wars Characters Lightsabers

Star Wars Best Lightsabers And The Characters Who Wield Them

What are the best Star Wars lightsabers?

The Jedi and Sith have been crafting lightsabers for millennia; these formidable weapons can effortlessly slice through almost any material.

Thousands of lightsabers were used in The Old Republic, and many were mass-produced to help in the battles between the Jedi and Sith. There would be very few in the galaxy by the time of the First Order.

This list of the top 10 lightsabers will show you the greatest lightsabers ever made, with so many exquisite weapons from the whole Star Wars world. 


Mace Windu's lightsaber

Jedi Master Mace Windu challenges bounty hunter Jango Fett and Count Dooku during the Battle of Geonosis. Unable to combat Dooku, Windu quickly dispatches many Droids and decapitates Jango Fett. He keeps fighting to defend his buddies without breaking a sweat.

Mace Windu's lightsaber style is somewhat typical among Jedi, but the distinctive purple hue makes it stand out. This tint resulted from Hurrikaine tribes giving Mace an amethyst-colored stone after he cured one of them. Behind the scenes, Samuel L. Jackson requested a purple lightsaber to differentiate himself from the other Jedi in Geonosis, which is why the hue was chosen. 


Darth Vader's black hilt lightsaber

Soon after receiving the Death Star blueprints, a Rebel spacecraft is seized. Soon after, Darth Vader starts killing every single one of them. The only light in the pitch-black corridor is his red sword, which highlights Darth Vader's hate.

In a terrible twist of irony, Vader finds it challenging to handle Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber, yet Vader's is almost the same. Despite this, Vader continues to use it to annihilate his opponents. Initially designed to utilize a synthetic crystal in Legends, it underwent significant alteration to boost the blade's strength and make it simpler for Vader to wield. According to Canon, the Jedi crystal in his Saber belonged to a person Vader had slain soon after rebirth. Vader's corruption reddened the crystal, and he used it to make his new lightsaber. 


Asajj Ventress' curved lightsabers

Asajj Ventress, the Sith Assassin, is more than prepared to meet Obi-Wan Kenobi as he races to confront her. Although Obi-Wan is more than capable of defending himself, her assaults are swift and lethal. Ventress becomes enraged as the battle takes them across the base, and she cannot kill the Jedi.

Asajj Ventress is equipped with two curving lightsaber hilts, the blades of which are red. Combining the hilts creates a dual-bladed lightsaber with an asymmetrical grip different from standard lightsaber hilts. 


Darth Maul's double-bladed lightsaber

Maul intervenes to battle the Sith Inquisitors, who are trying to assassinate Ezra Miller's pals after getting to know him. He quickly overcomes them, demonstrating his might as a natural force.

Though it has changed a few times, Maul's lightsaber is always easily identifiable as his. The first lightsaber was symmetrical, much longer than conventional hilts, and could be ignited from one or both sides. He used a lightsaber in Rebels that was hidden behind a cane and had a curved guard, giving him the appearance of a serene older man. 


Ezra Bridger's blaster pistol-lightsaber 

Ezra Bridger and Kanan Jarrus engage the Grand Inquisitor in combat on a star destroyer. Anticipating a simple battle, the Grand Inquisitor fires up his lightsaber. Instead, Kanan's unconventional weapon—Ezra's—takes him by surprise. He is tested; although he can overcome Ezra, he cannot vanquish Kanan. Ultimately, Kanan's attack proves too strong for the Grand Inquisitor to withstand.

Ezra's lightsaber is a solid technological tool, even if it isn't a lightsaber pistol. It looks like a typical lightsaber with a hand guard attached. That guard, however, has a light-blaster weapon that can engage opponents at a distance that would be inaccessible to Ezra otherwise. 


Dark Rey's hinged double-bladed lightsaber

Rey has discovered Palpatine's throne after traveling to the Death Star's remnants. A door opens, and she is ushered in as she enters the scene. Soon later, she comes upon her own Dark Side twin, brandishing an odd lightsaber with two blades pointing in the same direction. Then, before striking Rey, the doppelganger transforms the weapon into a more recognizable double-bladed shape.

While being seen so briefly, Dark Rey has one of the most distinctive lightsabers in the series. In its "standard" mode, it performs the same duties as a typical double-bladed lightsaber. She may rapidly alter it to a more aggressive mode, however. Since both of Dark Rey's lightsaber blades are pointing in the same direction in this form, she may strike with more strength than previously. 


Darth Malgus' Sith lightsaber

While trying to recover a Jedi Holocron, Jedi Master Denholm Orr and his padawan Sa'harr Kateen are ambushed by a Sith who wants to keep the Holocron for himself. In a startling turn of events, Darth Malgus kills the Sith and proceeds to assault the Jedi. Ultimately, he conquers Orr and tries to enlist Sa'harr by demonstrating to her how the Jedi had let her down.

Malgus' lightsaber is cool looking, even if it has no secret features or secondary blade. The weapon has a silver emitter and a black hilt. It also has a blade guard that looks like two knives. This gives the lightsaber an even more impressive appearance when lit, making his opponents, the Jedi, all the more fearful. 


Kylo Ren's cross lightsaber

Kylo Ren, already wounded, tries to fight the betrayer Finn. Finn is left bleeding in the snow as Kylo uses his lightsaber abilities, which are significantly superior to his own despite his wounded. After that, he squares up against Rey, who displays her skill with the weapon. She prevents their battle from ending, but not before leaving Kylo with a terrible scar on his face that will follow him throughout the whole Trilogy.

With her black lightsaber hilt, Kylo may unleash two more tiny blades from each side thanks to a cross guard. People who believe that this puts them at a disadvantage are correct. Kylo's lightsaber needs two extra ports to vent since it has a fractured crystal. Considering how carelessly he wields it, it's a wonder Kylo never blew up his lightsaber while still hanging onto it. 


Maris Brood's tonfa lightsabers

Senator Bail Organa is being held captive by former Jedi Padawan Maris Brood on Felucia. Her goal is to use him as bait to bring forth the Sith Lord who murdered Shaak Ti, her master. Now a Jedi, Starkiller approaches Maris. Starkiller decides not to murder Maris despite his great strength and love for the Dark Side of the Force.

Maris' lightsabers are similar to Okinawan martial weapon tonfa. Tonfa are traditionally used as batons, but Maris uses them as exotic swords, which gives her movements a surprising twist. Each lightsaber's hilt is longer than usual, and each one has an extra grip to enable Maris to hold them in her preferred unconventional way. Additionally, they have a high rotation rate, making Maris seem more formidable and confusing her adversaries. 


Tarre Vizsla's Darksaber

Mandalorian Din Djarin is challenged to a battle by Pax Vizsla after reuniting with his clan leader, The Armorer. If Pax prevails, the Darksaber becomes his own, granting him Manda'lor status.

Din accepts the combat and gives it his all, even if he doesn't want to retain the sword. In addition to fighting, the Darksaber actively weakens Din until he can hardly raise the sword. Ironically, Din's victory against his clan member comes only after he loses the Darksaber.

The Darksaber has been wielded by many, including Imperial Moff Gideon and Death Watch commanders Pre Vizsla and Darth Maul. During the Old Republic, Mandalorian-Jedi Tarre Vizsla created the first weapon. Because he was such a particular person, a special kyber crystal beckoned to him.

A black crystal with a white glow emanating from its blade. He created a silver metal hilt with black accents resembling a katana. Why this is one of the most awesome lightsabers in the Star Wars universe is unsurprising.
