Happy Star Wars Day! Once again, May the Fourth has arrived to give us all a day to celebrate that wonderful galaxy far, far away together. In honor of this special day and the recent launch of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, we asked you to help us decide which Jedi was the most powerful of them all. Now, After thousands and thousands of 1v1 battles with match-ups like pre-Darth Vader Anakin Skywalker vs. Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi vs. Qui-Gon Jinn, a winner has been chosen.
So, which competitor claimed the top spot for the most powerful Jedi of all time? Drumroll please…
Move aside, Anakin Skywalker. Master Yoda has risen above all others to claim the top spot as the most powerful Jedi of all time and the true chosen one according to IGN’s audience. He won pretty handily as well, as he was victorious in 89,756 of his 95,243 battles and had a win percentage of 94.2%.
Yoda is one of the most iconic characters in all of Star Wars and was not only a leading member of the Jedi Council and helped train countless Jedi to reach their full potential, but he was also a key part in assisting Luke Skywalker in fulfilling his destiny to stop the Empire and redeem his father, Darth Vader.
Speaking of Darth Vader and, more specifically, who he was before he fell to the Dark Side, Anakin Skywalker placed third and was bested only by Yoda and his former master, Obi-Wan Kenobi. It was a close battle too as they both had a win percentage of 88.8%.
It just goes to show that, even though you are the so-called chosen one to bring balance to the force, you can’t take it easy and expect victory to just come your way. In this battle, much like in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, Obi-Wan still had the high ground.
Luke Skywalker came in fourth place with a win percentage of 88.6%, which makes sense as these top four combatants are some of the most iconic characters in all of Star Wars and helped save a galaxy, even though there were some iffy decisions made along the way by them. Rounding out the top five was Mace Windu, the Jedi who was so close to stopping Emperor Palpatine before Anakin arrived and ruined everything.
The next five Jedi are also some great characters, including Ahsoka Tano, Qui-Gon Jinn, Pre-Sith Count Dooku, Plo Koon, and Cal Kestis. Cal’s placement should be a good sign that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is being well received and that this newer Jedi to the overall canon is a bit of a hit.
Of all the 63 Jedi we included in this face-off, Tu-Anh was unfortunately chosen as the least powerful with a win percentage of only 11.5 %. Her contributions to the Jedi Order should not be forgotten, however, as she was a Jedi Master who perished while trying to get to the bottom of a Separatist conspiracy on Utapau.
The next few Jedi near the bottom were all younglings who fell during the tragedy that was Order 66, including Whie Malreaux, Zett Jukassa, and Bene. Following them were Knox, Bolla Ropal, Nari, Ord Enisence, Halsey, and Bultar Swan.
Are you wondering where you favorite character landed, like maybe Grogu? (He placed at number 24!) For all the rankings, you can check out the full list of where all 63 Jedi that competed in this Face-Off ended up.
