Lightsabers also come in different variations and styles (no one lightsaber is exactly like another), and although they are all powerful, some blades are more powerful than others.

So, which lightsaber is the strongest? Read on to find out.

The Skywalker Lightsaber

The blue-bladed lightsaber of Anakin Skywalker was the first lightsaber to appear on screen in Star Wars: A New Hope. This lightsaber is considered strong for a number of reasons. First, it was crafted using a rare and powerful kyber crystal obtained from the crystal caves of Ilum. Once constructed, the lightsaber was passed down for generations and wielded by several powerful and highly skilled characters (Anakin, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, Ben Solo, Leia Organa, and Rey Skywalker) who added their own personal touches and modifications (Luke even modified it to work underwater) to make the lightsaber all the more powerful.

The Mace Windu Lightsaber

The standard purple-bladed lightsaber wielded by Jedi Master Mace Windu is considered to be one of the strongest lightsabers in the Star Wars universe. The lightsaber features a rare purple blade and a straight cylindrical hilt made from an extremely rare material known as electrum.

The unique purple colour of its blade is a result of the purple kyber crystal housed within the saber. The purple kyber crystal symbolises Windu’s unmatched skills as a duelist and his mastery of the Force. He was able to draw power and knowledge from the Dark Side without compromising his Jedi morals or being completely taken over by the Dark Side.

The Darth Vader Lightsaber

The red-bladed lightsaber wielded by the Sith Dark Lord, Darth Vader is another very powerful lightsaber from Star Wars. Although the Darth Vader lightsaber has a standard lightsaber design, it comes equipped with certain features that make it very powerful and deadly. First, it houses two power crystals (a synth crystal and a bled kyber crystal) and a dual-phase function that allows its blade to be adjusted manually during battle. The lightsaber was also heavily modified to fit Vader’s style and physical limitations as a Sith Lord.

The Darksaber

The Darksaber (black lightsaber) was custom-crafted by the very first Mandalorian Jedi, Tarre Vizsla, to fit his personal style and also to honour his Mandalorian heritage. This unique, one-of-a-kind weapon has a hilt, pommel, and emitter made from Beskar, which makes it one of the strongest lightsabers in the galaxy. Beskar is also one of the few materials that are lightsaber-resistant, so it makes sense that a lightsaber constructed with it would be incredibly powerful.

The Darksaber is uniquely powerful in that it responds to the emotional state of its wielder. It also has the ability to damage anything made of Beskar, and this is something other lightsabers cannot do.


There are many different types of lightsabers in the Star Wars universe, each with its own unique properties and features. The Mandalorian Darksaber, Mace Windu’s purple lightsaber, Darth Vader’s dual-phase lightsaber, and the Skywalker lightsaber are just some of the most powerful.

It is important to bear in mind that the true power of a lightsaber ultimately boils down to its construction, the quality of the material used, its purpose, and most importantly, the owner’s skill and relationship with the Force.
