    Anakin is obviously the best, then Maul. I went for Luke as third, but Obi-Wan is pretty similar. Rey is definitely not one of the better lightsaber users here. We’re going to need to see a lot more from her.

    I voted for Zett Jukassa because who the hell is that?
    Why are we using 25 as a cutoff?

    Anakin lost in ROTS (and AOTC for that matter). Maul lost in TPM. Finn lost in TFA. Luke prevailed against Vader with a lightsaber in ROTJ but was not able to deflect Palpatine. While he was able to emotionally appeal to his father and survive, he really didn't win the ultimate duel. Rey won in TFA but she was matched up against a guy who was suffering serious wounds that Chewbacca inflicted and the emotional toll of having just killed his father...

    So really the only man standing is Obi-Wan in TPM. He won the duel...and won it when Maul had the high ground no less

    If Rey was truly the Mary Sue her detractors claim she is then she would have been far and away above the clear top 3 here. She isn’t. She started higher because she knew how to fight prior and is clearly very powerful with the Force but it’s equally clear that the big 3 here are all way more advanced in their early twenties.

    A poll concerning effectiveness with a lightsaber, with limited sample size in this self-selecting quarter of the Internet can't extrapolate on whether or not a character is a Mary Sue. I personally don't think she is, but that is not what the poll is asking nor is it a question that can be answered by a poll.

    Every word of what you just said was wrong. The Rey is not a Mary Sue movement is reborn today. And I will not be the Last Jedi because I’m too busy posting on here.

    I’m kidding.

    Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Maul are easily the most skilled with a lightsaber. They’re also the most fun to watch, in my opinion. I love the refined and elegant style of the PT-era lightsaber combat.

    You can make an argument between Obi Wan (EP1) and Darth Maul. YES Obi Wan did beat him but that was due to Maul's arrogant bravado
