One of the strongest Force wielders currently alive during the timeline of ‘The Mandalorian’ and the early part of the New Republic is Ahsoka Tano, who is set to appear in the ‘Ahsoka’ series as the star of her own show. Of course, Ahsoka has gone a long way from her time as a headstrong and impatient Padawan as she is now a mature and wise Force wielder who understands the Force at a level deeper than most other Jedi or Sith.
To that end, Ahsoka is now incredibly powerful and capable of defeating many different Jedi, regardless of whether they are Knights or Masters. She was never formally a Jedi Knight herself, but Ahsoka is as true a Jedi as any Jedi can be, and that’s why she is just as strong or even stronger than the strongest and wisest Jedi. Still, there are limits in relation to how strong she is. That’s why we are here to look at the Jedi that Ahsoka can and cannot beat.
Jedi that Ahsoka can beat
5. Barriss Offee
Barriss Offee was one of Ahsoka Tano’s friends and peers during the Clone Wars, as she grew into a capable Jedi Knight after being first introduced as a Jedi Padawan. However, Barriss betrayed Ahsoka by making her the fall guy in the bombing of the Jedi Temple, which she orchestrated out of her anger for what the Jedi Order had become. She was eventually brought to justice by Anakin Skywalker after a duel.
The fact that Barriss could not even give Anakin a tough fight is why Ahsoka should be stronger than her. On top of that, Barriss’ mind was clouded with negative thoughts and emotions that drove her to the dark side. As such, Ahsoka’s more disciplined way of fighting should be able to handle Barriss.
4. Cal Kestis
Cal Kestis was just a young 13-year-old Padawan when Order 66 happened. He abandoned his training for five years to go into hiding but was forced to return to action as a Jedi Padawan during the events of ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.’ He became a strong knight due to his experiences in that game.
While Cal has become stronger ten years after Order 66, he still isn’t quite at the level of a Jedi Master. He is strong enough to defeat a fallen Jedi Master, but he can’t beat upper-tier Jedi, such as Ahsoka Tano, who is capable enough to give Darth Vader a hard time. And we know that Cal isn’t anywhere near Vader at this point in his life.
3. Leia Organa
While she was introduced as a politician and a military leader, Princess Leia Organa graduated from the life of politics and became a Jedi Padawan a year after the fall of the Empire. She never completed her training due to her fears. But she was still strong enough to fight Luke on par in a lightsaber duel.
Nevertheless, the fact that Leia never finished her training is the reason why Ahsoka is still stronger. Leia is naturally stronger in the Force because of her Skywalker genes, but her lack of training hindered her from becoming stronger.
2. Ezra Bridger
When Ahsoka met him in ‘Star Wars: Rebels,’ Ezra struggled to use the Force and was not particularly gifted in using a lightsaber as well. But over time, he became stronger and more resourceful as a young Jedi Padawan.
Nevertheless, Ezra never showed any feats that would allow anyone to think he was somewhere close to the level of Ahsoka Tano. We can’t even say that Ezra has reached the level of his master Kanan Jarrus. And that’s why Ahsoka should be able to handle him in a duel.
1. Kanan Jarrus
Born Caleb Dume, who was the Jedi Padawan of Depa Billaba during the Clone Wars, Kanan was already familiar with Ahsoka as they spent time together at the Jedi Temple before Order 66. Even back then, Ahsoka was already stronger and more skilled than him.
Though Kanan improved a lot ever since surviving Order 66, it was still clear that Ahsoka was ahead of him because she could take on multiple Inquisitors at once, whereas Ahsoka could do so. Kanan was also far below Vader’s level, whereas Ahsoka could hold him off.
Jedi that Ahsoka can’t beat
5. Obi-Wan Kenobi
The master of the defensive style called Form III: Soresu, Obi-Wan Kenobi’s defense is almost impregnable as only a few Jedi and Sith can possibly penetrate his defensive stance. While he isn’t the strongest Jedi in terms of his combat prowess and use of the Force, his discipline, wisdom, and defense make him a powerful Jedi.
The fact that Obi-Wan defeated Darth Vader/Anakin multiple times gave him the advantage over Ahsoka. After all, Ahsoka learned from Anakin, who was always stronger than her. And if Kenobi can defeat Anakin, Ahsoka won’t be able to handle him.
4. Mace Windu
Arguably the greatest Jedi during the Clone Wars in terms of his combat prowess, Mace Windu is the only Jedi to defeat Palpatine in a fair lightsaber duel, as he is certainly stronger than most Jedi Knights and Masters.
The fact that Windu was capable of defeating Palpatine is proof of his strength as a combatant. His power in the Force cannot be taken lightly as well because he can see shatterpoints in the Force. As such, Ahsoka won’t be able to beat someone of Windu’s prowess.
Yoda was often considered the greatest of the Jedi during his time because his combination of skills, Force powers, and wisdom was unparalleled. He could give Emperor Palpatine a tough fight and even stalemate him before he needed to retreat.
Of course, because Palpatine will always be a standard in terms of power in Star Wars, Yoda is just a tad weaker than him. And that already says a lot about how strong he is and how far the gap is between him and Ahsoka.
2. Anakin Skywalker
Born as the Chosen One that was supposed to bring balance to the Force, Anakin Skywalker had the highest potential among the Jedi. He was supposed to become the strongest Force wielder to ever exist before his ceiling was lowered after he got injured at the hands of Obi-Wan.
Nevertheless, Anakin was so skilled as a duelist during the Clone Wars that he defeated Count Dooku, a man renowned for his skills as a lightsaber combatant. And because Anakin taught Ahsoka almost everything that she knew, it is clear that she was never at his level.
1. Luke Skywalker
Luke was born the son of the Chosen One and had the genetics of the Skywalker bloodline. In that regard, he was born with a potential that was nearly as high as his father’s potential. And that’s why Luke could progress as a Jedi rather quickly.
Luke was often said to be the strongest Jedi after he defeated Darth Vader and the Empire. That’s because he was able to reach his full potential, unlike Vader. And the fact that Luke’s potential was only a tad lower than Anakin’s proves that not even Ahsoka should be able to defeat him.
