Top 10 Sith Lords In The Star Wars History

Read with Pleasure! Pick the Sith Lord you think is the most dangerous and powerful.

1. Darth Vader

Not only is Darth Vader the most memorable Sith in the Star Wars saga, but he is also the most memorable villain in the franchise’s history and, potentially, in all of popular culture. He is one of the few characters who never fails to amaze and leaves a lasting impression, and this is just one of many reasons why he is so important. He played a major role in both the original trilogy and its prequel.

Anakin Skywalker, better known by his villainous alter ego Darth Vader, was formerly a revered member of the Jedi Order. Anakin Skywalker was predicted to “Restore Balance to the Force” and hence was deemed the Prophesied One. But this wasn’t carried out in the manner that most Jedi had anticipated. Several factors caused Anakin Skywalker to abandon the good side and join the evil one and to become one of the most feared Sith lords in history.

His incredible backstory is really only matched by his jaw-dropping appearance and a slew of unforgettable traits. After he and his previous master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, got into a fight on the planet Mustafar, he had his legs amputated and his torso scorched, at which point he was put in a suit. In the wake of his internal struggle about the whereabouts of his son Luke, he converted to the good side and prevented the Emperor Palpatine from executing him. In terms of Force might, Darth Vader ranks up there with the best of them.

2. Darth Sidious

One of the main villains in the Star Wars saga is the fictitious Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine. The Senator Palpatine, Sheev Palpatine, Emperor Palpatine or Darth Sidious—whatever name he chooses to use—is the ultimate bad guy  ever seen in a Star Wars film.

For all the Sith Lords, he was the only one who could bring about complete vengeance upon the Jedi. He was the mastermind behind the Clone Wars buildup, manipulating the prophesied “Anakin Skywalker” to join his cause by preying on the Jedi Council’s mistrust of the unknown.

Darth Sidious is a legend in his own time, a genius in his own right, and a master of the lightsaber. The political sphere and Palpatine’s ability to persuade people were where he truly excelled, despite the fact that he was a real champion of the Force. Performance-wise and in terms of pure, unmistakable evil, he is a constantly wonderful addition to Star Wars.

3. Darth Bane

In the Star Wars universe, Darth Bane stands out as a famous Sith lord. There may be other Sith on this list, but none have had as much of an effect on the Sith or the Galaxy as Darth Bane.

Without a question, he is among the most consequential villains in history. The “Rule of Two,” which states that only a master and a disciple can exist in the universe at the same time, is largely responsible for Bane’s notoriety among the Sith Lords.

His introduction into the Expanded Universe may be traced back to “The Phantom Menace”, and he has since made frequent appearances in canonical novels. Bane is unique among ancient Sith in that he has made an on-screen appearance in Star Wars, albeit briefly, in a fantastic cameo during The Clone Wars.

He was the only Sith to survive the Jedi Order’s Sith Purge one thousand years before the Battle of Yavin. He is a reliably fantastic addition to the Star Wars cast, both in terms of performance and of pure, undeniable evil.

4. Darth Revan

In the Star Wars universe, Darth Revan stood as a powerful and heroic figure. He has a devoted fanbase and renown throughout the galaxy. Darth Revan is one of the rare Sith lords who has returned to the good side of the Force. Darth Revan is unique among force users in that he serves as both a Sith Lord as well as a Jedi.

Revan’s sheer performance as a character is significantly more persistent than his shifting allegiances between the Jedi and the Sith, and he continues to be one of the Legends timeline’s best known creations.

For a long time, Revan had been a powerful Lord of Darkness. As such, he knew his way around the Force like nobody’s business. He has been revered for his roles in the Mandalorian Wars.

5. Darth Nihilus

Darth Nihilus also known as “Lord of Hunger” was a masculine human that ruled as a Sith Lord during the turbulent time period that followed the Jedi Civil War.

Of course, the terrible mask which Darth Nihilus wears has contributed to his fame throughout the years, just as it has to the fame of other characters with similarly distinctive features. Darth Nihilus consumed force energy and existed as a spectre throughout the cosmos.

His life was profoundly influenced by an experience he had in the past, when a superweapon called the Mass Shadow nearly annihilated all in its path. Thus, Darth Nihliuis’s enduring fame stems from the rationalization of his criminal behavior; he exacted vengeance on those who had stolen from him.

He is not just one of the most formidable dark lords of Sith, but also the most terrifying of all of them. Nihilus and his ally Darth Sion launched a purge of Jedi, bringing his vengeance to completion. Even if revenge doesn’t always provide closure, it’s difficult to have much ill will toward Darth Nihilus.
