Star Wars Video Games' Most Powerful Sith Lords

Star Wars Video Games' Most Powerful Sith Lords ...

The Star Wars expanded universe is a gloomy beast. While Timothy Zahn''s Thrawn trilogy, the Rogue Squadron animated show, and the 2003 Clone Wars film are among the best features of the popular Sci-Fi/Fantasy franchise. At least three pieces of expanded Star Wars media have failed to deliver the same magic as the source material for every great book or show. Fortunately, the video game side of things has always been pretty good.

Star Wars video games have remarkably well managed to capture the essence of the iconic universe, with some of the greatest game ever acting as an extension of the story, adding countless lore tidbits, new characters, new worlds, and new themes, all while remaining quite a Star Wars product. While most aren''t canon anymore, they also remain some of the most powerful beings in the entire Star Wars universe.

The Strongest Sith With a Lightsaber

Most Siths have been trained to use a lightsaber as a Jedi in the Star Wars universe. However, the Force''s rage has gotten stronger than they had previously taught, and by using Kyber crystals in which they feel the lightaber effect. Despite their ability to finish their opponent in a few flourishes, Sith Lords are capable of delivering devastating lightsaber strikes.

Darth Malak, who worked as a Jedi Knight until the age of 30, was quickly turned on the people who destroyed his childhood home: the Mandalorians. Malak and his close friend decided to go against the Jedi Council''s wishes and joined the Republic to fight against the Mandalorians.

Malak became the Republic''s most powerful leader as he raided numerous Mandalorians'' planets, whereas Revan became the brute, a warrior capable of cutting down a lot of them as a result of the defeat of Malachor V. After finally defeating the Mandalorians, Malak and Revan discovered the dying Sith Emperor, who used the duo''s displeasure to turn them to the Dark Side.

Revan became the Sith Master of the two after declaring that he was the stronger Sith. Malak openly resented this decision, and in one instance, after declaring that he was the Sith Master, Revan promptly cut his jaw off with a lightsaber, proving that he was indeed worthy of the title of Sith Master.

Malak was incredibly adept in close-quarters combat, but he walked out against Revan''s ability. With an inherent aptitude for the Force and hand-to-hand combat, Revan''s skill was unmatched. Even after firing upon Revan''s ship and betraying them, Malak could still not defeat his Master, who returned to defeat them once and for all on board the Star Forge.

The Strongest Sith With The Force

The Force is a Jedi''s greatest tool and the Sith''s greatest weapon. Despite its capability with a flashlight, the Force is truly capable of distinguishing a Sith Apprentice from a Sith Lord. Even those who are not capable of wielding a blade are still able to be among the most powerful warriors in the galaxy, and Darth Traya is the perfect example.

The Sith Lords, a Star Wars game, has plenty of Sith in it. In fact, KOTOR 2 actually has three of the most powerful Force-users in any Star Wars media. Darth Traya assists the Exile protagonist of Knights of the Old Republic 2, allowing them to free the galaxy of their ties to the Force, which she deemed to be an enslavement.

Kreia became disillusioned with the Jedi Council on Malak and Revan''s exile. In her quest to rid the galaxy of the Force, Revan was exiled, leaving her to join the Dark Side as a threat. Darth Traya joined the Jedi Council and convinced her to build a new Sith Empire, drawing upon two new apprentices: Darth Sion and Darth Nihilus.

Darth Sion and Nihilus trayed Traya in an attempt to gain more power and influence over the galaxy, stripping her of her Force powers. Eventually, the two Sith Lords became even more powerful than their master, with Nihilus capable of consume entire planets through the Force, while Sion exploited his immense range to reach a state of immortality, keeping his decaying body together with the powers of the Dark Side and the Dark Side alone.

Galen Marek, who is now known as Starkiller, was a powerful Force-user when he fully accepted the Dark Side and joined the Emperor as his new apprentice. Starkiller slashed the entire main cast of the original Star Wars trilogy in an alternate sequence, using the force to launch the Millenium Falcon into Echo Base''s hangar doors. All while simultaneously combating Luke Skywalker with ease.
