Over the course of three movie trilogies, two TV series, and countless books and comics, we’ve seen a lot of Jedi that can kick serious butt. But which Jedi are the most powerful?

Luke Skywalker might have been reckless and out of control, but in the end it was Luke who beat down the Sith by bringing his dad back to the good side, proving the most powerful weapon of all… is love.

We’ve yet to see everything Rey can do, but she’s been a Force-user all her life. Bottom line, if Luke Skywalker is afraid of her, then Rey must be seriously powerful.

Most powerful of all time?

Mace Windu was a revered Jedi Master. A member of the Jedi High Council, Windu was the greatest champion of the Jedi Order and promoted its ancient traditions amidst the growing influence of the Dark Side during the last days of the Republic. And he almost stopped Palpatine… almost.

Before Obi-wan Kenobi was a loner in the Tatooine desert, he killed Darth Maul, dispatched General Grievous, and brought down Anakin Skywalker. A Jedi of deepest commitment whose power is only exceeded… by his sass.

He may be small, but Yoda is strong in the Force. For eight centuries, Yoda trained an estimated 20,000 Jedi, and he came out of retirement to teach Luke Skywalker, which ended up being a pretty big deal.

Yoda survived Order 66, but does that make him most powerful?

Anakin Skywalker is believed to have literally been the offspring of the Force, born in slavery to his mother on Tatooine. After her death, he vowed to become so powerful in the Force that he’d stop the people he loved from dying. But things didn’t exactly work out like that. An incredibly powerful Jedi, Anakin was corrupted and became Darth Vader.
