All 56 Jedi Masters That Ever Existed, Ranked by Importance

Share:

The Jedi Order has existed for thousands of years and has always been there whenever there was any kind of crisis in the Star Wars galaxy. Of course, that means that we have seen our fair share of powerful and prominent Jedi throughout the history of Star Wars. Undoubtedly, the most prominent of these Jedi were the Jedi Masters, who were the very symbol of wisdom and discipline within the Jedi Order.

While the current Star Wars canon has only scratched the surface of the deeper Star Wars lore that follows the 25,000-year history of the Jedi Order, we’ve already seen many Jedi Masters featured in the movies, shows, and books. So, with that said, let’s look at all of the Jedi Masters that ever existed ranked in terms of how important they were.

56. Prosset Dibs

Prosset Dibs was a Jedi Master who was active during the Clone Wars and was one of the survivors of Order 66. When he lost his life in the Jedi Order and the Republic, Mace Windu fought him.

55. Zia Zaldor Zanna

While not the most important Jedi we’ve seen in the storyline of Star Wars, Zia Zaldor Zanna has seen her fair share of screentime in the lore because she was featured in ‘Sar Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures.’ As a Jedi Master, she was in charge of the training of the Jedi initiates on Tenoo during the time of the High Republic, which took place centuries before the Skywalker Saga.

54. Katri

Featured in ‘Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi,’ Katri was a Jedi Master who sat at the Jedi High Council decades before the Skywalker Saga. She was killed offscreen by a group of security guards on Raxus Secundus.

22. Porter Engle

Arguably the strongest Jedi Master of his time, Porter Engle was a legend during the High Republic era and was one of the greatest duelists and hand-to-hand fighters the Star Wars lore has ever seen.

20. Quinlan Vos

Quinlan Vos was a unique Jedi Master who was born with a rare gift called Psychometry, which allowed him to use the Force to read the memories of inanimate objects. He was also known as a renegade among the Jedi because he wasn’t always doing things in line with the will of the Jedi Council. Vos eventually survived the events of Order 66 even though he momentarily fell to the dark side. He went on to help smuggle Force-sensitive people away from the Empire.

19. Elzar Mann

Elzar Mann was one of the most prominent Jedi during the High Republic era. He was close friends with Avar Kriss and Stellan Gios and was one of the most unconventional Jedi of that time because he never liked using the power of the Force the same way twice. That was why he tried to find ways to use the Force in different manners, as he experimented with it many times. And while many of his experiments failed, he only understood the nature of the Force more.

18. Avar Kriss

Avar Kriss was a Jedi Master during the High Republic era and was a powerful Force wielder because she saw the Force as a song.

And with this power, she played an important role in saving countless lives in the Hetzal system.

17. Sifo Dyas

While we never saw Sifo Dyas alive during the time of the Skywalker Saga, he played one of the most important roles ever, as it was through his vision that he decided to go to Kamino and request them to create a clone army for the Republic.

15. Cin Drallig

Cin Drallig was the Jedi Battlemaster of his time and was one of the greatest duelists in the entire Jedi Order.

However, Cin Drallig died at Anakin Skywalker’s hands during the Jedi Temple Siege.

14. Luminara Unduli

Known as one of the wisest Jedi Masters of her time, Luminara Unduli was the master of Barriss Offee and was one of the most influential members of the Jedi High Council. At some point during the rise of the Empire, Luminara was captured. The Empire used her corpse to lure out any remaining Jedi who could sense her power and presence.

13. Shaak Ti

Shaak Ti was one of the most influential members of the Jedi High Council during the Clone Wars and was well-known for her eye for talent.

Shaak Ti died when Anakin stabbed her in the back while she was trying to communicate with the other Jedi in the galaxy.

12. Kit Fisto

Known as the Smiling Jedi, Kit Fisto was one of the best duelists in the Jedi Order and was also known for his influence within the Jedi Council.

11. Cere Junda

While she was never an influential member of the Jedi Order, Cere Junda became an important Jedi Master in the events of the ‘Star Wars Jedi’ video games as she played the role of Cal Kestis’ mentor. Although she lost her connection to the Force when the Inquisitors tortured her, she eventually regained it and became stronger. Cere fought against Vader and was about to kill him before a last-minute attack from the Sith Lord found its mark.

10. Ki-Adi-Mundi

Ki Adi Mundi

Known as one of the most intelligent members of the Jedi High Council, Ki-Adi-Mundi was arguably just as important as any other member of the Jedi Order and was often looked up to by the other Jedi due to his wisdom. He was a strong and powerful Jedi Master who could put up a fight against some of the strongest Force wielders in the galaxy. However, he ended up dying when his clone troopers peppered him with countless blaster bolts during Order 66.

9. Depa Billaba

Depa Billaba was the master of Caleb Dume, who we know as Kanan Jarrus. She was a strong and wise Jedi Master who learned the ways of the Force under Mace Windu.

8. Count Dooku

Count Dooku may have been a powerful Sith Lord at the end of his life, but he used to be a Jedi Master. He trained under Yoda as a Padawan and was also the master of Qui-Gon Jinn. Dooku lost faith in the Jedi when he saw how corrupt the Republic was and how the Jedi Order just didn’t seem to care about the corruption within the Senate. Throughout his lifetime, Dooku was known as one of the greatest duelists, matched only by the likes of Yoda and Mace Windu.

7. Plo Koon

Plo Koon was one of the best Jedi Masters of the final days of the Jedi Order and was also right up there with Anakin Skywalker as one of the best pilots in the galaxy. He was the Jedi who found Ahsoka Tano and brought her to the Jedi Temple when she was just a child, making him one of the most important Jedi in the life of one of the most important characters. Plo died when clones shot down his starfighter during Order 66.

6. Mace Windu

Jedi Master Mace Windu was one of the strongest duelists of all time and was the only one who was able to defeat Palpatine in a straight-up duel. He was second only to Yoda in terms of his influence in the Jedi Order, and that’s because all of the Jedi respected his strength and authority. Windu’s death completed Anakin’s fall to the dark side as Skywalker betrayed him and allowed Palpatine to kill him.

5. Qui-Gon Jinn

Known as a rebellious and defiant Jedi Master, Qui-Gon Jinn was the master of Obi-Wan Kenobi and was the same Jedi who found Anakin Skywalker on Tatooine and deemed him the Chosen One. Qui-Gon was aware of the Prophecy of the Chosen One and was actively trying to learn more about it until he met Anakin. He was supposed to train Anakin but died at the hands of Darth Maul on Naboo.

4. Yoda

Jedi Grand Master Yoda was the strongest and wisest Jedi of his time and was one of the few people who could match Darth Sidious in a fight. He was 900 years old at the time of his death, meaning he has seen it all during his time as a Jedi. Yoda completed Luke Skywalker’s training and offered him guidance and wisdom during the events of the sequel trilogy.

3. Obi-Wan Kenobi

Often called the unsung Star Wars hero, Obi-Wan Kenobi was a true Jedi Master in every sense of the word. He was the one who trained Anakin Skywalker in the ways of the Force and was the one who had to sacrifice everything just so he could live on Tatooine and watch over Luke for almost 20 years. Obi-Wan was also the only person strong enough to defeat Vader, not once but twice.

2. Rey Skywalker

While we never really knew how Rey Skywalker became a Jedi Master, the Jedi Order will now follow her wherever she goes as she is now looking to re-establish it under her leadership. She was the daughter of Palpatine’s clone and quickly rejected her grandfather’s offer to take her place as the empress of the Sith Empire. Now a true Jedi Master, Rey is set to continue her story in her upcoming film set 15 years after the true death of Palpatine.

1. Luke Skywalker

Out of all of the Jedi Masters in Star Wars, Luke Skywalker is undoubtedly the most important one because he was the one who helped bring balance back to the Force by redeeming his father. Luke was also the one who gave hope to the galaxy when he destroyed the Death Star. Of course, he became the first to try to re-establish the Jedi Order before it ultimately failed again. Nevertheless, he redeemed his failures by passing the torch to Rey.
