9 Best Lightsaber Fights in Star Wars
Interesting note: there won't be any lightsaber fights in Rogue One.
- •Darth Vader vs. Luke Skywalker - The Empire Strikes BackIt's obvious that Vader is testing Luke, and toying with him to an extent, but Luke was indeed "full of surprises". They didn't save his hand, though.
- •Kylo Ren vs Rey - The Force AwakensThe polar opposite of the prequels. No finesse. All aggression.
- •Darth Maul and Savage Opress vs. Darth Sidious - The Clone Wars Season 5Red. Lightsabers. Everywhere. Brutal, somewhat tragic, and kickass. It's always special when bad guys duke it out.
- •Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn vs. Darth Maul - The Phantom MenaceNo matter how much you may dislike The Phantom Menace, you probably drop whatever you're doing when you hear Duel of the Fates start up.
- •Yoda vs. Darth Sidious - The Revenge of the Sith3 words: Weaponized Senate chamber.
- •Kanan Jarrus vs The Grand Inquisitor - Rebels Season 1In the Dark Times, no one fought fair.
- •Obi-Wan Kenobi vs Darth Vader - A New HopeThe one that started it all. Filmed before the time of CGI, and apparently stunt doubles, George Lucas would later explain it away as a fight between an old man and a cripple, both out of practice.
- •Maul vs Obi-wan - Rebels Season 3When masters fight, it's over before you know it. The fight was won or lost before blades were ever drawn.
- •Asajj Ventress and the Nightsisters vs Count Dooku - Clone Wars Season 4Ventress attempted to get revenge on Dooku by poisoning him before moving in for the kill, as well as framing the Jedi in case she failed. Which she did.
