All Star Wars fans love lightsaber fights don't we? Today I'm counting down the top 5 best lightsaber fights in the Star Wars universe. Keep in mind this is all opinion. If you disagree please be respectful.

#1 Luke Skywalker Vs Darth Vader - Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi (1983).

Reason: The music and the conflict makes this greatest lightsaber duel of all time. The location is so cool and dark that it almost looks like a medieval sword fight in space. I like this duel better than the one in Empire because it actually looks they're trying to kill each other. It's a vast improvement over the duel in A New Hope. It's much faster, violent and more realistic. The visuals, the red and green and sabers, intensity this fight seems to have it all. Which is why I rank it as the number one lightsaber duel.

#2 Anakin Skywalker Vs Asajj Ventress - Star Wars: Clone Wars (2003 - 2005).

Reason: This is my favorite duel in this TV series. I know it's in the shitty prequel but for reason this more entertaining than prequel trilogy. Ventress is a pretty cool baddie and Anakin Skywalker is much better portrayed here. This for some reason just wanna makes you be in a lightsaber fight with your friends. It's intense and exciting at the same time. Need I say more.

#3 Jedi Vs General Grievous - Star Wars: Clone

Wars (2003 - 2005).

Reason: This is one bad ass introduction for Grievous. This fight indicates that you don't wanna mess with Grievous and I think I'll end it there.

#4 Luke Skywalker Vs Darth Vader - Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980).

Reason: This is an improvement from A New Hope. The lightsaber fight is slightly faster and slightly more violent. It's cool to see how Vader uses his sith mind tricks just to toy with Luke. Vader schools Luke big time and lets him on a little secret.

#5 Yoda Vs Darth Sidious - Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith (2005).

Reason: Who cares if the prequels weren't as good as the original trilogy. It's just cool to see a bad ass Jedi Knight fight an evil Sith Lord. This fight is even more epic than Obi-Wan vs Anakin in my opinion. This fight is more exciting and cool to see Yoda finally kick some sith ass.

Those are the top 5 lightsaber duels. What's your favorite duel? Feel free to comment.
