Hey Guys! In this video, we run down the top 5 most powerful Sith Lords of all time! Ranging from Darth Vader - all the way down to SWTOR!

And just a quick side note – Our list will contain Sith Lords from both the CANON and LEGENDARY sides!

You can check out our list in the video below!

Or if you don't feel like watching our video, we'll run down our list right now for you!

5. Darth Revan!

Starting off at number 5 is Darth Revan. Revan was originally introduced in the Knights of the old republic video game and has become a well known figure in the Star Wars universe. Revan was exceptional with a lightsaber, as well as his abilities with the force – he also had the gift of precognition and was an exceptional warrior. Revan was also a master at telekinesis, using the force to manipulate objects and/or beings.

One of the coolest things about Revan, and why he’s on this list - is because Revan could channel the light side and the dark side - and as a result he could unleash the Force in its purest form by opening himself up to both elements!

4. Exar Kun!

Coming in at number 4 is Exar Kun! Exar Kun actually started out as a Jedi - but after discovering forbidden knowledge of the history of the Sith, he eventually fell to the dark side of the force.

Much like Darth Revan, Exar Kun was a master with a lightsaber but even more so, he was also able to innovate and master the double bladed lightsaber which had previously never been done. Also in his repertoire was Sith Alchemy, in which he was able to create monstrous creatures out of the dark side of the force!

3. Darth Vader!

Number 3 on our list is Darth Vader. One of the main things that makes Darth Vader so unique, is that he was believed to have been conceived by the force. And upon being discovered by Qui-Gon Jinn on Tatooine, was taken to the council to be trained as a Jedi.

Unlike the previous Jedi that the council accepted, Vader was thought to be the chosen one that would bring balance to the force – considering his midichlorian count was even higher than even master Yoda’s.

Vader’s fighting style was forced to change however, when he became mainly cybernetic, with his suit impeding his fighting style. He was forced to sacrifice his speed and acrobatic nature for far more precision and power making his movement more robotic - but undeniably more focused! His suit was so painful to put off and on that every time he did, it made him angry, and so he channeled that anger into his abilities!

Vader was also able to force throw his lightsaber while he was ignited in battle - and guide it with the force to strike his enemies down. He also had precognitive skills, being able to sense the future before it happened.

2. Darth Bane!

At Number 2 - we have Darth Bane, the one who created the rule of two. After finding an ancient Sith Holocron from Darth Revan, he went and destroyed the Sith order and instituted the rule of two!

"Two there should be; no more, no less. One to embody power, the other to crave it." - Darth Bane

Darth Bane had an all out offensive style of fighting with his strength being able to overwhelm them with his lightsaber.

While his strength was overwhelming he was also adept in the force, able to use his telekinetic power to shatter his opponents force shields. Bane was so hateful, he could draw on the dark side of the force so strongly his lightning could kill opponents on contact leaving them charred.

Along with his own hatred, he could take the fear and pain of others to increase his own power!

1. Darth Plagueis!

So finally at number one is Darth Plagueis! As the heir to the lineage of Darth Bane, he ultimately became obsessed with something that Darth Bane could never achieve ... eternal life. Plagueis experimented constantly with ways to extend his own life, and create new life!

Some would even say that he was the one who created Anakin Skywalker! Although he was adept with a lightsaber he was much more masterful with the force. Plagueis could absorb blaster bolts being fired at him and turn it into lightning. Plagueis could also conjure force illusions so convincing that they fooled his apprentice Darth Sidious.

His force wave technique was able to atomize his opponents, he could also a force bellow so powerful that all he needed to do was clap his hands to turn any object into a deadly projectile. On top of all of this his most unique talent with the force was being able to manipulate the force to save people from dying.
