The REAL Most Powerful Jedi Lightsaber Duelists

For all of those not familiar with this set up, I'm have been compiling a series of lists cataloging the most powerful Force users, Jedi and Sith created through discussion and debate, as opposed to simply giving our own personal opinions. These lists are now complete - though likely subject to change in the near future - and can be checked out in the index. In this case however I am moving a way from Force abilities, and looking to another integral skill of Force using individuals - lightsaber skill. Note that I'm not asking for a list of who you think the most powerful Jedi lightsaber duelists are - and by power I do indeed mean skill. As before we'll do this one position at a time.

So without further ado, lets move on to the next list in the series. Jedi lightsaber duelists. There are no canon statements regarding the most skilled duelists, however the first five positions will be pre-determined in accordance with the previous lightsaber duelist thread. Also note that this list consists of Jedi only, which excludes any informal Force users who may have drawn on the light side of the Force.

Anyway, the template!

1. Luke Skywalker
2. Yoda
3. Mace Windu
4. Jaina Solo
5. Obi-Wan Kenobi
6. Raskta Lsu
7. Vodo-Siosk Baas
8. Kol Skywalker
9. Corran Horn
10. Shaak Ti

Like before I'll update this list as we go along, so first on the agenda - who gets #6?

Oh hell the only one I can really think of off the top of my head right now is Corran Horn.


Edit: though I think I wish to make a special mention of the HoT though we don't know of his form or what not I always speculate that he mastered form 1,3,4,5 and 7 and was a master of Jar'kai though preferred a single blade because I consider the Jedi knight to be both the Sentinel and the Gaurdian and in all the cut scenes he only pulls one blade but I believe he was meant to have the skills of all AC's and specs.

I'm just going to throw some names out there before I start thinking on who should be #6.

Shaak Ti
Plo Koon
Kit Fisto
Mara Jade Skywalker
Qui-Gon Jinn

That's off the top of my head.

Edit: Also Sora Bulq

There's not enough info on the HoT to properly analyze his abilities. Just speculation at this point.

Throwing out a couple names of people before the Golden Era:

Raskta Lsu
Revan

Lsu I feel is a little underrated and her lightsaber skill is pretty evident.

Revan isn't underrated, he's just unknown. However I wouldn't say he lightsaber skill ever reached exceptional heights, his strengths seemed primarily with the Force.

As for Lsu, I'm not sure we have enough information on her to draw a conclusion. She is one of many Battlemasters.

Kyp Durron, Corran Horn, and Saba Sebatyne are my three nominees (namely Saba for 6th)

Kyp might have been a better choice in the power powerful Jedi,

Corran used one of the most unique saber styles ever and was proficient in saber combat to overcome his lack of telekenetic ability.

Saba was regarded by Luke, Ben, Jacen, and much of the NJO's High Council as one of the best saber duelists. We ranked Jacen rather high, and he feared Saba's saber skill so I think she deserves a spot on this list.

Meh. Could do with a bit more information to support them. Something more concrete, but I do agree that NJO characters are going to make a big play for Top 10.

A question though, has Saba done anything in regards to proving those statements true or are they just hollow statements? Not saying statements don't count for something, but it's better to have it be backed up.

Though then also it brings up another question, just how many good lightsaber duelists are there in the NJO?
