This thread is in the Films forum, so I thought I?d rank them purely in terms of what we see on-screen. With a Lightsaber: 1. Pre-suit Vader The Vader/Kenobi duel in RotS is technically the best in the saga, and even though Kenobi eventually wins, I think Vader?s saber skill was more impressive. 2. RotS Kenobi Able to adequately defend against Vader?s onslaught. 3. Maul Simply the most stunning saber use in the whole of the saga. 4. Dooku Owned Anakin and Kenobi at the same time (until Anakin tapped into the Dark Side of course). 5. Windu Defeated Sidious (until Anakin messed everything up). THIS IS WHAT WE SEE ON SCREEN ? the notion that Sidious was faking is conjecture. 6. Yoda Held his own against Dooku and Palpatine. 7. Sidious Took out 3 of the Order?s best Swordsmen in seconds. Gave Windu and Yoda a hard time. 8. Jinn Impressive saber skills, but only saw him fight Maul, who owned him. 9. Luke Insufficient training to master the lightsaber. Force Mastery: 1. Yoda Took everything that was thrown at him, and even reflected it back. 2. Sidious Simultaneous control of several large senate pods. Force Lightning. 3. Jinn Discovered the secret to immortality. 4. Anakin/Vader Unmatched piloting. Choking over vast distances. Throwing objects. 5. Dooku Pulling the roof of a cave down. Force Lightning. 6. Windu Best force-jump in the saga. 7. Kenobi Mind tricks, force jumps, super-speed, closing toilet doors 8. Luke Mind tricks, Choking, moving rocks 9. Maul Throwing objects.
