  • Derkil

    Fun Fact : Anakin was trying to replicate the jump that Obi-Wan did on Maul and Obi-Wan knew it that's why he said "Don't try it"

    The best way to start a duel:

    "I have the high ground!"

    • The Dacenorpes
      The Dacenorpes 2 years ago +23

      " *I'm no Jedi.* "

    The duel between Ahsoka and Vader is brilliant, the emotion and ferocity that they both go into it with is almost heart breaking.

    • Lady Kanerasoka
      Lady Kanerasoka Year ago +5

      No shit! I can NEVER watch that scene, nor even a segment of it in videos like this without tearing up! Bad choice watching this video just before bedtime LOL

  • Foggy AF
    Foggy AF 2 years ago +161

    Not having Obi Wan and Darth Maul from Rebels is a glaring omission.
    What it lacks in runtime it makes up for in emotional weight and small details.
    Truly underappreciated.

    • Joshua Hirst
      Joshua Hirst Year ago +1

      They even mention it when talking about duel of the fates

    • KyleTheJudge

    • ArchNegative

      @SmwNerd yeah there are better duels but nothing from the sequels or alot of the battles on this list top that one short fight

    • SmwNerd
      SmwNerd Year ago

      @ArchNegative I respectfully disagree

    NOEL VEGA HEVIA 2 years ago +18

    I totally agree with the list, I love how you don't only talk about choreography but also sentimental value and nostalgia. Ahsoka Vs Darth Maul is by far the best animated Lightaber fight ever created, as well as the whole final arc of the Clone Wars: Siege of Mandalore. I love Star Wars so much...

  • Jake

    I appreciate you saying “Anakin’s lightsaber”

  • Liam Cullins
    Liam Cullins 2 years ago +56

    #10 bugged me the most. You left out Obi-Wan on his own against Maul and Savage after Gallia was killed? That was one of Obi-Wan’s best moments from the whole show! He pulled out all the stops dual-wielding lightsabers and won! Also, that “you are mistaken” line at the beginning is just so awesome.

    • CursedInari74
      CursedInari74 Year ago +2

      I love that duel so much, Obi-Wan is the GOAT

    • iSwiftyFox
      iSwiftyFox 11 months ago +2

      It’s my 5th favorite fight in the show. Sooo cool!
      Above it are grievo vs Jedi
      Obiwan v Vader
      Obiwan v Anakin
      And Obiwan and Qui gon v Maul

  • Anna Pope
    Anna Pope Year ago +9

    Never a doubt about number 1. The sheer emotion of it is enough to break anyone's heart.

  • Seth-Nico
    Seth-Nico 2 years ago +12

    Twilight of The Apprentice will always be my favourite moment in all Star Wars. There’s just so much emotion & years of buildup towards that confrontation & it effected me in a way nothing else had before.

  • argonzalez71
    argonzalez71 2 years ago +49

    Count Dooku was one of my favorites. He had the dope style with and without the lightsaber.

    • Eldrickzero
      Eldrickzero 2 years ago +1

      yeah he uses fencing style

    • Budahbaba
      Budahbaba Year ago

      Yes! Dooku didn't need two sabers or doubled sabers. He could move that poignard so effortlessly to all points from all directions. Loved watching his style! :)

  • Starry Agent99
    Starry Agent99 2 years ago +6

    Even if you dislike the choreography for TROS’s last duel, the setting IMO helps to make up for it. Watching them duke it out on the Second Death Star’s wreckage with those crashing waves is one of my favorite moments from the sequel films. Plus, there’s some serious poetry their tying into Revenge’s Mustafar duel; in that fight, they’re on a fire planet with the Skywalker on the offensive. On Endor, their surrounded by water, and the Skywalker (Kylo) is defending himself.

      Plus, seeing how Dave Filoni is such a fan, I can't help but think it's also a reference to "He's no Jedi" from Episode VI.

      Not really she’s just stating a fact is wasn’t really groundbreaking or anything like that.

  • Ethan Mitchell
    Ethan Mitchell 2 years ago +688

    One thing I love about the final fight is Obi’wan says
    “Don’t try it”
    He knows what Anakins going to attempt
    Because he did the SAME move on Maul in the phantom menace.............

    • usopp'n
      usopp'n 2 years ago +60

      Yessirrr, Anakin actually studied that fight in great detail and Obi knew exactly what he meant by “you underestimate my power”. Such a cool detail!😄

      Velocidragon 2 years ago +11


    • Unlikely Landscapes
      Unlikely Landscapes 2 years ago +25

      Holy crap. I never picked up on that. Adds a whole new dimension to an already emotional scene.

    • bernard chong
      bernard chong 2 years ago +10

      he thought Obi-Wan just gona stand there and look at Anakin jump over him and slice him in half

    • Luis D. Ruiz Santiago

      BRUH! I never thought of it that way!

  • Lady Kanerasoka
    Lady Kanerasoka Year ago +13

    I’m so happy the Ahsoka vs Darth Maul duel made the top 5 list. It’s my all time favorite battle in The Clone Wars. Heck, it’s my all time favorite battle in the ENTIRE FRANCHISE!!! EVERYTHING she said about that battle at 18:35 is 100% true!

  • Nicholas Wright
    Nicholas Wright Year ago +4

    If Kenobi vs Anakin is #1 on this list, then the rematch takes the top spot. The choreography is fantastic, the cinematography is captivating, the dialog is heart wrenching and the sheer emotional scope is unparalleled.

    • Spiral Redd

  • Frederick Kriesel
    Frederick Kriesel 2 years ago +245

    I was so disappointed that they shafted Finn. He should of been force sensitive and that blue lightsaber look is totally owned by him.

    • Skezeks Skybreaker
      Skezeks Skybreaker 2 years ago +29

      Agreed it would have been cool to see him like Kyle Katarn and use a combination of weapons and light saber. Besides the next 2 movies sucking more they just threw his character arc in the garbage.

    • Hazel Tade
      Hazel Tade 2 years ago +8

      John Boyega’s treatment by fans and behind the scenes only makes it worse

    • OG_JGA
      OG_JGA 2 years ago +8

      He is force sensitive. They just didn’t make nearly enough of an effort to show us that. I agree that he was indeed shafted.

    • Pope Shabba
      Pope Shabba 2 years ago +1

      Facts, I’m pretty sure the actor talks about it(apologies for not knowing his name, I don’t know like any of the names for the new movies)

    • Kidkaro Official
      Kidkaro Official  Year ago +1

      Don't worry that's just Disney being Disney

  • Yeetus Yeetus Delta Deletus

    Obi-Wan 1v2ing savage and maul definitely deserves more respect

  • Summer-Rose Knight
    Summer-Rose Knight 2 years ago +2

    Qui-gon and Obi-wan vs Maul was awesome. The choreography alone was captivating, but it kept us on our toes.
    But my favourite was also No.1. The greatest light saber duel in history.

  • Nicolas Bocchino
    Nicolas Bocchino 2 years ago +2

    How can you not show the rest of the fight of #10. It’s one of the greatest lightsaber fights of all time. Demonstrating that obi-wan is one of the greatest dualists of all time, especially as the definitive master of soresu, the light saber form focused on defense and being able to deal with multiple assailants/multiple light sabers

  • Freddie McKellar
    Freddie McKellar Year ago +1

    I personally think the fight between Yoda and Palpatine should have been higher up, they both and great dialogue in that scene and was incredibly cool to see Yoda doing flips and jumps of the Chancellors stand as they arise into the Senate. I thought it was so captivating seeing Palpatine throw Senate Stands at Yoda and seeing their joint strength in the force. I just feel it deserved a higher ranking than 7. Just my personal opinion.

  • zrt2021
    zrt2021 2 years ago +11

    I fundamentally think not having the Rebels Obi-wan vs Maul final fight is a crime. That has got to be the most poetic Star Wars scenes ever.

  • D Stephenson
    D Stephenson 2 years ago +2

    The score of Luke vs Darth Vader in ROTJ is my favorite with Dual of the fates a very close second. The fight is not as flashy but the music is just so foreboding and intense. Great list Mojo

  • UnovaKid 24

    I realized that most lightsaber duels often end with a death or dismemberment.
    Or both in Windu's case

      Which means it’s realistic then

  • Michael Robertson
    Michael Robertson 2 years ago +3

    In live action my favorite is definitely Yoda VS Palpitine because it shows us the 2 most powerful force users going head to head. It was a fight we never knew we wanted until we got it.
    In animation my favorite is definitely Ahsoka VS Vader. The sheer drama that comes from it and the heartbreaking reveal that Ahsoka’s former master has fallen so low. It’s a fight worthy of a tragedy of Shakespeare.

    • Vin Von Voom
      Vin Von Voom 2 years ago

      Well technically speaking the majority of Yoda vs Sidious _is_ animated so it could count for both.

  • TampaTec
    TampaTec Year ago +18

    Darth maul fights are my favorite but Luke Skywalker vs Darth Vader was the most rememberable.

  • /\/\id-NightRacer
    /\/\id-NightRacer Year ago +1

    Wish she mentioned how Qui-gon and Kenobi vs Maul had the best score behind their fight, Duel of the Fates is an absolute banger

  • Schlaqckster Mcdougalpuff

    #5 is my personal favorite battle!! As she said, it wasn't about the action. but the emotional charge!!!! I get goosebumps every time I watch it!!!

  • Kai Hung
    Kai Hung 4 months ago

    I feel like Anakin vs Dooku in Revenge of the Sith was definitely a great fight and deserve a spot on the list.

  • Clayton Epich
    Clayton Epich 2 years ago +121

    Maul vs Obi round 2 will always be my favorite. People say it was underwelming, but it was perfect. Kenobi baited Maul with Qui Gons stance, and cut threw his lightsaber before he could hit him in the head with it like he did to Qui Gon.

    • Alonso Arana
      Alonso Arana 2 years ago +7

      While definitely not in my top 20, I respect the visuals and the symbolism behind that duel and can see why people love it

    • Dimond360 _
      Dimond360 _ 2 years ago +5

      Old Ben vs Maul is definetly top 5 for me

    • Paul Hikari
      Paul Hikari 2 years ago +4

      Yes, by stepping backward instead of forward like Qui Gon did.

    • elad amittai
      elad amittai 2 years ago +8

      Yes! This was probably the most nuanced fight in star wars. It's amazing!

  • VikingDragon01
    VikingDragon01 2 years ago +1

    What does it tell you that Maul made it onto the list 6 times?! Plus an honorable mention?! (Please correct me if I miscounted, lol)
    Also, watching this list gave me so many chills and feels from so many of my favorite Star Wars moments.

  • Sydney Sampson
    Sydney Sampson 2 years ago +1

    I’ve always wished yoda and sidious had gone on for longer. Two of the most powerful fighting in the senate chamber was so good 😊

  • RVMLath
    RVMLath 2 years ago +1

    Dooku vs Night Sisters in clone wars is also amazing. Probably not good enough for the list but maybe an honorable mention.

  • Agave Sauce
    Agave Sauce 2 years ago +6

    in other words, darth maul has easily the most extremely entertaining lightsaber duels

  • BricknWolf

    PS, it is indeed both obscure and awesome to see Obi-Wan hold a red lightsaber.

  • Mr. Brico

    Maul vs Obi-Wan from Rebels is definetly one of my favorites, it’s simple yet complex, the story behind each move is amazing

  • Emily Canfield
    Emily Canfield Year ago +1

    The best part about Luke vs Vader is the way Palpitine sits on his throne and tries to manipulate Luke the way he did Anakin. Also when Vader says "Obi-Wan taught you well" after Luke kicks him down the stairs to gain the highground was amazing.
    Even if it wasn't 20 years of foreshadowing for the prequels, it's still amazing they remembered all that and put it in the prequel movies.

  • Axel Christensson
    Axel Christensson 2 years ago +1

    I believe the fight that Anakin and Obi-Wan has vs Count Dooku in season 6 is awesome; he reveals his alias Tyrannus etc. It’s good and it really shows Dooku’s skill as a fighter.

  • Vishal Reddy
    Vishal Reddy 2 years ago +2

    Anakin vs Dooku should have been on the list. That was such a big moment in my opinion. Also would loved to see my personal favourite bros vs Sidious a bit higher.

  • Everett Crede
    Everett Crede 2 years ago +1

    This is a PERFECT list! I'm so happy Maul got so many duels on this list if not all of them! Couldn't agree more.

  • Stray Wolf
    Stray Wolf 2 years ago +2

    Although no strictly from the films or TV, I think it’s a shame not to mention the fantastic battle between Kao Cen Darach/Satele Shan and Darth Malgus/Darth Vindican from The Old Republic

  • Morgan Pogue
    Morgan Pogue 2 years ago +155

    The best lightsaber duel is the duel between Anakin and obi-wan because you can feel the emotion and rage with each clash of the blades.

  • Hershey Bars
    Hershey Bars 2 years ago +2

    Palpetine actually let windu to disarm to make him look like he had been attacked by mace because he sensed anakin enter the building so he could finally convince him the Jedi were bad

  • Gsuwuhwhd Fsuwjwjhw

  • Hugo Navarro

    I feel like yoda vs dooku is so underrated. It was the first time we ever got to see yoda in action and he made dooku run like a b***h

  • Sith Hunter

    Obi-Wan vs. Maul in Rebels is very under-rated and should have been in this list over 4 of these in here.

  • James Dosdall
    James Dosdall Year ago

    Count Dooku vs Anakin and Obi Wan from the Clone Wars should have been on here. That was a brilliantly choreographed fight, one of the best in the Clone Wars.

  • darthstarkiller1912
    darthstarkiller1912 2 years ago +250

    I still think the first part of "Clone Wars" should be canon since it shows how Anakin became a Jedi Knight.

    • Jacob Person
      Jacob Person 2 years ago +27

      Not to mention General grievous coughing in episode 3 the ships where the same and the end of the clone wars fits in between episode two and three!!

      @Jacob Person He did cough in "The Clone Wars", mainly in the first season.

      Agreed. They're like bookends of the 2008 Clone Wars.

    • Rhaegos the Sky Dragon
      Rhaegos the Sky Dragon 2 years ago +1

      Yes it should. And had season 7 of the Clone Wars had never happened, the should have adapted the second part of the cartoon Clone Wars to animation to connect it to Revenge of the Sith.

    • Guyjemm
      Guyjemm 2 years ago +8

      The way I see it, everything up to and including Anakin showing Padme his scar is canon, then from there you would watch 2008 Clone Wars.
      Clone Wars showed Anakin becoming a Jedi Knight. It had the first acknowledgment of Anakin's scar. It showed how Anakin got R2-D2. It showed how C3PO went from silver to gold. It showed the introduction of Grievous. It showed the introduction of Asajj Ventress.
      The show fills in so many holes that 2008 Clone Wars and Revenge of the Sith just don't cover that I think the first 21 and a bit episodes just have to be considered canon.

  • Mary Ellen Kidd

    This has to be the most accurate list out there! Love that the prequels & The Clone Wars are getting some appreciation!!

  • Alex Harper
    Alex Harper Year ago

    For me number 1 is Luke v Vader rematch in rotj. Sometimes less is more, and the intensity of that scene was the accumulation of the greatest trilogy ever and did it justice. The dialogue with Luke and Vader, the emporer watching over, as each opponent tries to turn the other, neither wanting to land the killing blow. Epicness. Much better than the flips and tricks of the prequels and far superior to the toy selling sequels.

  • Matthew Shaugabay II
    Matthew Shaugabay II 2 years ago +3

    13:52, seeing that in theaters as a kid, I damn near ran out of the theater on account of how unfair and yet badass it was to see Obi Wan take on Grievous with 4 lightsabers.

  • Lady Kanerasoka
    Lady Kanerasoka Year ago

    21:19 I’m glad that Ahsoka and Luminara vs Asajj Ventress was at least an honorable mention because that was the first time ever in Star Wars history that an all-female fight was introduced

  • BigJoe707
    BigJoe707 Year ago

    Anakin vs Obi-Wan in Revenge of the Sith had to be the top one. That was the most emotional duel and also I think the longest in the saga. Now I think Obi-Wan vs Vader in the finale of Kenobi is a close second to this duel

  • Ethan Engelking

  • Brett Dudenhoeffer

    Kenobi and Maul’s final fight in Rebels should have been on the list.

  • Rainbow Runner

    In case you were wondering who the three other Jedi with Mace Windu when they dueled (and were ultimately killed by) Palpatine are, these are their names:
    Agen Kolar (Blue lightsaber, first to die)
    Saesee Tiin (Green lightsaber, second one to be killed)
    Kit Fisto (Green lightsaber, held his own briefly alongside Windu before being struck down by Palpatine)

    The end of the first Luke vs Vader duel has to make it in the top three, because it has the most iconic line in cinematic history:
    "No. I am your father."

    Personally I think, the fight from return of the Jedi beats every other fight that ever happened in the Star Wars series, the pure emotion, anger, choreography and visuals are stunning

    Obi-Wan & Qui-Gon vs Darth Maul, Yoda vs Dooku, and Ahsoka vs Maul were awesome because of their duel movements, techniques, and energy.
    Obi-Wan vs Maul (Rebels), Obi-Wan vs Darth Vader, and Luke vs Vader (TESB) were awesome because of the emotion & symbolism between them.
    Ahsoka vs Vader, Luke vs Vader (ROTJ), and Obi-Wan vs Anakin had displayed both strong raw emotions & symbolism, and incredible lightsaber dueling against each other.
    I love these duels and the rest (yes, even the sequel trilogy duels... unfortunately)

  • Gabe

    I know it got HM, but I feel like Anakin vs Bariss should’ve been top 20. Anakin showing his expertise against Bariss is one of the most dominating scenes in TCW. And the ending, where Anakin is force choking her, shows how much closer he has come to eliminating the soft ways of the Jedi.

    Of course, quite a few fights with Count Dooku were solely based on Christopher Lee's own skill with a sword... like Sir Patrick Stewart, Christopher Lee was a professional swordsman, and knew his way around fencing and swordsmanship.

      Jan Actually, Sidious didn't create a false sense of fear in his heart, rather, his voice, face, and body language gave off the impression of a scared old man and, since Mace Windu was looking for Sidious' Shatterpoint, not Anakin's, he associates the fear he senses with Sidious because of the voice, face, and body language. The fear is actually Anakin's, which is why Sidious says this: "Fool!" His voice was a shout of thunder. "Do you think the fear you feel is

    “ i will do what i must “ was actually Qui-Gon’s dialogue in ep 1 go check it out… and later on Obi-Wan used it when he has to deal with someone especially against a sith or someone like Anakin who has fallen to the dark side💁🏻‍♀️💯

    I would’ve included Ahsoka vs. the inquisitors in rebels season 2. I love that fight especially how ahsoka just clowns both of them showing how much more powerful she’s gotten since clone wars.

    • Colton Piper
      Colton Piper 2 years ago +1

      I mean that was the first time we have seen Ashoka fight since the last clone wars episode. So she had gotten older and stronger. Also as if a seasoned clone war vet would have any trouble against inquisitors. Honestly Rex in his prime with a lightsaber might be able to beat an inquisitor lol

    • TheWingland
      TheWingland 2 years ago

      @Colton Piper maybe man I always felt the inquisitors weren’t that powerful maybe the level of a Jedi Knight. Any more powerful and sidiious would likely consider them potential threats and kill them.

    • Colton Piper
      Colton Piper 2 years ago +1

      @TheWingland I would say Jedi knight levels Max. But if they got defeated by anybody usually Vader would take care of the Jedi who defeated an inquisitor. I feel like the inquisitors were mainly used to take down padawans and if any were defeated Vader would come in and ransack everything haha

  • David Meyer
    David Meyer 2 years ago +22

    Honestly, for me, anything with the Darksaber is at the top, followed closely by anything with Count Dooku, when Dooku is actually played by Christopher Lee. Lee is a pleasure to watch in any role, really, the man was an absolute legend. His biography reads like an adventure novel.
