50 Most Powerful Star Wars Spaceships Ranked by Importance

star wars ships

Star Wars storyline takes place in different star systems around the galaxy. Of course, while the story can switch from one planet to another, there have been a lot of instances wherein the wars are happening in none other than outer space. That is why ships are very important in the storyline of Star Wars, as the characters have to use them in the different skirmishes they have with their opponents and when traveling from one star system to another.

But not all spaceships in Star Wars are made equal. Some are bigger and stronger than others. Some tend to excel in overall speed and maneuverability. So, with that said, let’s look at the most powerful Star Wars ships ranked by importance.

50. Vulture-Class Droid Starfighter


The Vulture-class droid starfighter was commonly used during the events of the Clone Wars as these starfighters were some of the staples of the Separatists. And that’s because these fighters are completely unmanned and are actually droids shaped like starfighters.


10 Most Important Star Wars: The Clone Wars Characters

Vulture droids were meant to be quick, disposal, and very versatile. They can both space and land travel, so these starfighters could act as land droids when their wings are turned into legs. Of course, these droids’ biggest weakness is that they are slaves to their programming.

49. ARC-170 Starfighter

arc 170

Short for Aggressive ReConnoissance-170, the ARC-170 starfighter was often used as a multipurpose ship during the Clone Wars. They were built to replace the Clone Z-95 Headhunter, the clones often used. And these were designed for intense battles and long missions out in space.

Unlike some other starfighters on this list, the ARC-170 was meant to carry three crew members. It had a pilot, a co-pilot, and a tail gunner, making it very useful in many situations. The fact that it has three crew members allows each crew member to focus on their job.

48. Delta-7B Aethersprite-Class Light Interceptor

delta 7

The Delta-7B is one of the different Jedi starfighters we saw during the Clone Wars. It was meant to be the second generation of the Jedi starfighters, meaning it was an improved version. The thing about this ship is that it was never meant for destruction and deep-space travel and was mostly used for maneuverability.

The reason why the Delta-7B wasn’t very destructive was the fact that it was quite small and didn’t have a lot of weapons. On top of that, it needed to use a hyperspace ring to travel through hyperspace, which means that it was never meant to be used without a cruiser nearby.

47. A-Wing Fighter

a wing

The A-Wing Fighter is one of the Rebel ships that got the least attention because it didn’t show up often. But the thing about this ship is that it was quite serviceable and on par with the standard Imperial TIE Fighter in terms of its speed and maneuverability.

Of course, the A-Wing didn’t have the same performance and firepower as the X-Wing. As such, it didn’t get the same kind of attention as the other Rebel starfighters we saw during the Star Wars storyline. Nevertheless, it was meant to be a fast and maneuverable ship that could blitz opposing starfighters with its speed.

46. Naboo Starfighter


Introduced in ‘Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace,’ the Naboo Starfighter was the standard fighter of the Naboo Royal Guard. This was also the same ship that the Naboo pilots used to try to destroy the Trade Federation blockade outside the planet.

The thing about the Naboo Starfighter is that it was meant for speed and maneuverability. However, it lacked the same kind of firepower that some of the other starfighters on this list have, and that’s why it isn’t the most reliable ship when it comes to war and other dogfights in space.

45. T-6 One-Nine-Seven-Four


The T-6 is a multipurpose shuttle that Ahsoka Tano started using after the Rebellion eras of Star Wars. This was the ship she used to go to Lothal when she recruited Sabine Wren to go on a journey to find Ezra Bridger.

This very same ship returned in the ‘Ahsoka’ series, wherein we saw just how hardy and durable it is. Its shield could withstand several attacks from multiple starfighters due to its strength. On top of that, it took several hits from the turbolasers of the Eye of Sion without getting destroyed.

44. Din Djarin’s Razor Crest


The Razor Crest debuted during the events of ‘The Mandalorian’ as a ship meant to be a bounty hunter’s best friend because it was large enough to carry the bounty that Din Djarin caught. In fact, it even had its own carbonite freezing unit. The very same ship was also meant to be Djarin’s personal quarters.


10 Greatest Bounty Hunters in Star Wars (Ranked)

Of course, the Razor Crest was durable, fast, and quite powerful. Nevertheless, it was never meant for speed because it was always meant to be a gunship. Moff Gideon’s Imperial remnants destroyed the Razor Crest during the events of season 2 of ‘The Mandalorian.’

43. The Marauder


The Marauder is an Omicron-class shuttle that the Bad Batch uses in ‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch.’ As an attack shuttle, it was never meant for space battles. Nevertheless, it is still a very capable ship for the Bad Batch whenever they encounter combat situations on planets. And the fact that the Bad Batch often fought under atmospheric pressure makes this ship perfect for them.

Ships like the Marauder are great for carrying multiple crew members, and that’s why all members of the Bad Batch have separate spaces inside this ship. The thing about this ship is that it allows every member of the Bad Batch to have their roles because it was meant to have multiple crew members.

42. Xanadu Blood

The Xanadu Blood is a modified Rogue-class Porax-38 starfighter that Cad Bane received from Darth Sidious as payment for one of the missions that he undertook for the Sith Lord. In that regard, it became the bounty hunter’s main ship throughout most of the events of the Clone Wars before replacing it.

While piloting this ship, Cad Bane was as dangerous as ever as he was able to give the Jedi some problems throughout the Clone Wars. But while Bane did indeed replace it with the Justifier, the name of this ship makes it a lot cooler than its replacement.

41. Soulless One


While we didn’t always see him piloting this ship, General Grievous owned a Belbullab-22 starfighter called the Soulless One. He customized the ship to fit his overall aesthetic and tastes, which means it became much stronger than most other starfighters we saw during the Clone Wars.

Grievous reinforced the ship’s armor with Impervum alloy to give it more defense. On top of that, it had a sensor jamming system that allowed it to hide in plain sight. The ship was also equipped with a roster of weapons, including two laser cannons. Nevertheless, we didn’t see this ship’s full potential because, as mentioned, Grievous mostly used it for transportation purposes.

40. Eta-2 Actis-Class Light Interceptor


The Eta-2 Actis-Class Light Interceptor is the upgrade to the Delta-7, which was quite useful for the Jedi. This is commonly known as the Jedi Interceptor because of how fast, quick, and efficient it is at getting the job done for the Jedi.

This ship debuted in ‘Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith’ when Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi participated in the Battle of Coruscant to rescue Chancellor Palpatine. The ship showcased how fast and maneuverable it is. On top of that, it has two ion cannons that can pack a punch. 

39. Luthen Rael’s Fondor Haulcraft


Known as the Fondor, Luthen Rael’s Haulcraft debuted during the events of ‘Andor’ as this ship was his transport. It was the same ship that he used to recruit Cassian Andor. Of course, he also used the ship in his many travels throughout the galaxy.


100 Best Star Wars Quotes of All Time

While it was never known for battle, the ship had a lot of different tricks. It has a droid Mod serving as Luthen’s co-pilot. On top of that, it has plenty of functions that allow it to defeat an entire cruiser on its own using laser beams and a projectile launcher. It even surprised the Imperials, who were trying to catch it using a tractor beam.

38. Din Djarin’s N1 Starfighter


After the destruction of the Razor Crest, Din Djarin needed a new ship. He wanted another Razor Crest, only for Peli Motto to give him a modified N1 Starfighter. The modification to this ship allowed it to move so fast that it looks like it is moving at lightspeed even though it hasn’t entered hyperspace yet. As such, this ship is so fast that it can outmaneuver almost every other ship in the galaxy.

Din Djarin’s N1 Starfighter may be a downgrade to the Razor Crest in terms of its size. Still, it has helped the Mandalorian get the job done when traveling around the galaxy with his adopted son, Din Grogu.

37. TIE Striker


One of the coolest TIE Fighter variants we have ever seen is the TIE Striker, which was shown during the events of the Battle of Scarif in ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.’ The TIE Striker is an experimental starfighter that actually did some damage to the X-Wings that we saw in Rogue One.

Of course, the TIE Striker looks extremely awesome because it looks like a winged predator and is around 56 feet long. This means it has the right size to go up against some of the other starfighters in the galaxy. And it was always meant to be an air superiority fighter.

36. Y-Wing Fighter


The Y-Wing is one of the many different staple starfighters that the Rebels used during the war against the Empire, as it showcased its firepower. It is often described as the counterpart to the TIE Bomber because it can deliver a lot of damage despite its lack of speed and maneuverability.

Due to how it was always meant to be a bomber, the Y-Wing can dish out damage and even take it because of its heavier shield. It also can deliver ion bursts that are known to disable other ships. And while it is stronger and heavier, it lacks the speed and versatility of the X-Wing.

35. B-Wing Fighter


The B-Wing is a unique ship that debuted during the events of ‘Star Wars: Rebels’ as it was still a prototype in that series. This prototype was meant to be able to destroy an entire blockade due to how special its weapon is. And that’s why it is often known as the upgrade to the Y-Wing.

What makes the B-Wing so special is its strong laser weapon, powerful enough to cut down an entire Imperial cruiser. On top of that, it is sturdy and durable without having to sacrifice speed and maneuverability. As such, it is faster and more useful than the standard Y-Wing.

34. Imperial-era TIE Fighter

t fighter

The Imperial-era TIE Fighter is a classic ship that Star Wars fans love because it was often featured in the original trilogy as the staple starfighter that the Empire fielded in skirmishes with the Rebels. At just 30 feet long, this small and compact starfighter can quickly dish out damage due to its speed and maneuverability.

In that regard, the TIE Fighter was easy to manufacture and use. It may lack a hyperdrive and isn’t the most well-packed starfighter in terms of offense and defense. But it gets the job done as far as the Empire’s need for a standard starfighter that is useful in many different situations.

33. TIE Interceptor


The TIE Interceptor is another variant of the TIE Fighter that is said to be an upgrade to the standard version. It is slightly bigger than the usual TIE Fighter but is said to be faster and stronger than the regular version.

What makes the TIE Interceptor better is that it has all of the strengths of the TIE Fighter without necessarily adding to its weaknesses. It has better speed and maneuverability and has more firepower. And that’s why it was quite the troublesome starfighter during the Battle of Endor.

32. T-65 X-Wing Fighter

The T-65 X-Wing Fighter is what you would call the most prominent starfighter in the history of the Star Wars galaxy due to how cool it is and how many different kids grew up watching this starfighter. Known more as the X-Wing, this ship was one of the staple starfighters of the Rebels during the war against the Empire. It was even responsible for destroying the first Death Star.


20 Most Important Star Wars Planets, Ranked

While it lacks the firepower and defense of the B-Wing, the X-Wing is a lot faster and has a host of different torpedoes that it can use to bring down bigger ships. It is the most versatile starfighter that the Rebels use because it can be useful in many different situations. This is why the X-Wing remains one of the most iconic ships in the history of Star Wars.

31. First Order TIE Fighter

first order

Three decades after the fall of the Empire, the First Order rose up and copied everything that made the Empire so dreaded. That means that even the TIE Fighter made its way to the First Order’s roster of ships. The First Order TIE Fighter is an upgrade to the standard TIE Fighter we saw during the Imperial era.

The thing about this TIE Fighter is that it comes with the older design of the original TIE Fighter but offers better shielding and has a host of newer weapons that make it so much better than the original. And like the original TIE Fighter, it was meant to speed-blitz enemies.

30. TIE Defender


The TIE Defender was a pet project of Grand Admiral Thrawn, who believed that the Empire should have diverted time and resources instead of the Death Star. And there was a good reason to believe why the TIE Defender would have allowed the Empire to dominate during the Imperial era.

Thrawn’s TIE Defenders were much stronger than standard TIE Fighters because they had powerful deflector shields, strong bombs, and a hyperdrive. The TIE Defender was also much more difficult to destroy, making it the ultimate starfighter for the Empire. However, the TIE Defender was never mass-produced because of how expensive this project was.

29. Ghost


The Ghost is the freighter that serves as the home of the Spectres during the events of ‘Star Wars: Rebels.’ Because it was meant to be a freighter, it houses several different weapons, including a few laser turrets that the Spectres can man, while Hera Syndulla focuses on flying. And because of its size, the Ghost can house an additional shuttle called the Phantom.

What makes the Ghost special is that it was able to stir up some trouble for the Empire during the events of ‘Rebels.’ Because of its competent crew and talented pilot, it was one of the most troublesome Rebel ships in the entire galaxy. And it even participated in the war against the First Order, as it was in the attack on the Final Order on Exegol.

28. Separatist Dreadnought


With a length of 7,200 feet, the Separatist Dreadnought is a long and angry-faced ship that the Separatists often used during the Clone Wars. It was one of the fixtures of the Separatists and was often featured in the different skirmishes against the Republic.

Of course, while it may be big and scary, the Separatist Dreadnought was almost seemingly meant to be piloted and operated by droids. In that regard, these ships were never as threatening as the other large ships on this list.

27. Resistance X-Wing Fighter

resistance x

Appearing in the sequel trilogy of Star Wars, the Resistance X-Wing became the staple of the Resistance fleet in the war against the First Order. That means that it borrowed its design from the original X-Wings while incorporating a few upgrades to allow it to keep up with the upgraded ships that the First Order had.

Of course, the Resistance X-Wing carried over everything that made the original X-Wing special. Nevertheless, the tech was improved to make it faster and have more firepower than the original X-Wing.

26. Corellian Corvette/Alderaanian Cruiser


Shaped like a hammer, the Corellian Corvette, also called the Alderaanian Cruiser, is a tough customer because this ship was meant to ram opposing enemies down. In that regard, it was meant for durability instead of firepower. And its durability was often used against the Empire.

Because the Rebels knew that the Empire had better cruisers and ships, they had to rely on other tactics that allowed them to trim the difference in terms of firepower. In that regard, the Corellian Corvette was strong enough to be a hardy and durable ship capable of taking hits and dishing them out in the physical sense because it could ram opposing enemies down.

25. Imperial-class Star Destroyer

star destroyer

The Imperial-class Star Destroyer was the Imperial fleet’s staple ship during the Empire’s time because of how these star destroyers could strike fear into the entire galaxy’s hearts. Rebels feared the sight of a star destroyer due to its imposing size. And citizens feared rebelling against the Empire whenever there was a star destroyer just outside the planet’s atmosphere.

These ships were so large and strong that they were capable of ship-to-ship battles and could even assault entire planets as well. Moreover, they carried tons of troops and dozens of smaller starfighters. Simply put, star destroyers were the backbone of the Imperial fleet.

24. Eye of Sion

eye of sion

The Eye of Sion debuted in the ‘Ahsoka’ series as a large hyperspace ring designed to travel to a different galaxy. It has six Super Star Destroyer hyperdrives to give it the capacity to move from one galaxy to another. As such, it was meant to go to Peridea to rescue Grand Admiral Thrawn from his exile.


‘Ahsoka’: Is Jumping to Another Galaxy Possible? Explained

Of course, the Eye of Sion wasn’t meant to for its offensive prowess. It houses a lot of different turbolasers, but these weapons struggled to destroy Ahsoka’s ship. As such, its true purpose is to serve as an attachment to a star destroyer.

23. Lucrehulk-class Battleship


One of the largest ships in the world of Star Wars is the Lucrehulk-class Battleship, a huge circular ship that the Trade Federation and the Separatists used as the command station for their droids. These ships weren’t meant for maneuverability but could take hits due to how large they were.

Of course, in ‘The Phantom Menace,’ the destruction of one of these ships caused the droids in Naboo to stop functioning. Then, in ‘Star Wars Jedi: Survivor,’ you get to explore the insides of a crashed Lucrehulk to see just how massive this ship is.

22. Profundity


The Profundity is a modified MC-75 Mon Calamari Cruiser that the Rebels used during the Battle of Scarif during the events of ‘Rogue One.’ Of course, like most Mon Calamari cruisers, this ship was meant to take heavy damage while dishing out its own fair share of damage as well.

Like most Mon Calamari ships, the Profundity comes with its fair share of weapons, such as its turbolasers and its ion cannons. But while the Mon Calamari may have designed the Profundity, it was not as capable of taking hits as their other cruisers because it focused more on offense than defense.

21. TIE Silencer


The TIE Silencer is arguably the coolest-looking TIE Fighter ever due to its different look that makes it more menacing. It is around 55 feet long and is a lethal and sleek ship that goes well with Kylo Ren’s entire persona.

As Kylo Ren’s personal starfighter, the TIE Silencer was made for speed and maneuverability. Its wings are shaped like knives that probably aid it in traveling through hyperspace and other difficult space routes, such as the one that led him to the planet of Exegol.

20. Venator-class Star Destroyer


The Venator-class Star Destroyer was one of the Republic’s best ships fielded during the Clone Wars. In fact, most of the cruisers that the Republic used during the Clone Wars were this type of Star Destroyer as it was an effective tool of war in terms of its overall capabilities on offense and defense.

Like many other Star Destroyers, the Venator-class was huge and well-armed. It had plenty of weapons, such as turbolasers, torpedo launchers, and tractor beams. But the thing about the Venator is that it can hold a massive amount of starfighters who are ready to protect it from different enemy units.

19. MC80 Liberty-type Mon Calamari Star Cruiser


The MC80 Liberty-type Mon Calamari Star Cruiser is one of the ships that served as the backbone of the Rebel Alliance during the Rebellion period because this vessel was heavily modified for battle and was quite hardy and resistant to enemy attacks. While they weren’t as big as the star destroyers, they were armed with plenty of turbolasers (up to 48) and twenty heavy ion cannon batteries.

In that regard, the MC80 was a powerhouse in its own right and was designed to be difficult to bring down. And they even have powerful shield projectors that add to the toughness and durability of this cruiser.

18. Raddus


Another Mon Calamari ship on this list, the Raddus is an MC85 star cruiser that is armed with the same kind of weaponry that the MC85 and the MC80 have. However, it isn’t as well-armed as the MC80 because a few weapons needed to be removed to make way for powerful shields that allowed it to take more hits.

In that regard, the Raddus is one of the toughest ships in the entire galaxy and can withstand some of the strongest weapons that the First Order had to offer. Due to its toughness, it was able to pull off the Holdo Maneuver, which was singlehandedly able to destroy the massive Supremacy.

17. Slave I

slave i

The Slave I is one of the most iconic ships on this list, as it is used by the most iconic bounty hunter of all time, Boba Fett. Originally belonging to his father, Jango Fett, Boba inherited this ship and turned it into his own as he hunted down bounties all over the galaxy.

Slave I has one of the most unique looks out of all the different ships in the galaxy, as it is quite rare. Of course, it is well-equipped with many different weapons, including blaster cannons, proton torpedoes, and laser canons. It also holds seismic charges that are capable of bringing down larger ships.

16. Home One

home one

Home One is a modified MC80A Heavy Star Cruiser that doesn’t have the same kind of firepower that most of the other cruisers on this list have but is one of the toughest ships the galaxy has ever seen. Like all Mon Calamari ships, it is tough as nails and can take hits from opposing enemy cruisers.


10 Greatest Black Jedi in Star Wars Ranked by Importance

Of course, Home One is incredibly iconic because this was where Admiral Ackbar uttered his famous “It’s a trap!” line. So, on top of its toughness, it has also made its way to the Hall of Fame of Star Wars moments due to that iconic Admiral Ackbar scene in the original trilogy.

15. Luke’s X-Wing Starfighter


The most iconic starfighter in the history of Star Wars is Luke Skywalker’s modified X-Wing. That’s because the heroic Luke pilots it during the events of the Battle of Yavin. This starfighter brought hope to the galaxy when it blew up the Death Star. And this is why it remains one of the most legendary starfighters in the galaxy.

While it doesn’t have heavy modifications, this starfighter has survived many battles and served its pilots well. Of course, Luke eventually handed it down to Rey, who used the X-Wing after Luke’s death. Interestingly enough, it survived the battle against the Final Order on Exegol.

14. Chimaera


While the Chimaera doesn’t seem to be very special because it is just an Imperial-class Star Destroyer, it is still one of the most iconic star destroyers in the entire storyline of Star Wars because it is helmed by none other than Grand Admiral Thrawn himself.

Thrawn used the Chimaera as the flagship of his Seventh Fleet, which was quite active during the storyline of ‘Rebels’ as he was able to strike fear into the hearts of the Rebel Alliance using this mighty fleet. Of course, the Chimaera was the ship that Thrawn used to bombard Lothal before Ezra Bridger used the Purrgil to banish himself and Thrawn into another galaxy.

13. Resurgent-class Star Destroyer


The Resurgent-class Star Destroyer is an improvement of the classic Imperial-class Star Destroyer because the First Order introduced several upgrades to this ship in the 30 years between the fall of the Empire and the rise of the First Order. At almost three kilometers long, this ship is nothing short of massive.

Of course, the Resurgent is huge and home to over 1,500 turbolasers and different ion cannons that can overwhelm entire battalions. They could also carry a large contingent of TIE Fighters and ground troops. In that regard, the presence of one Resurgent could strike fear into the hearts of many Resistance fighters.

12. Malevolence


At almost five kilometers long, the Malevolence is nothing short of massive, as this cruiser was the most dangerous vessel that the Separatists used during the early parts of the Clone Wars. We can say a lot about the different turbolasers that this ship sported, but its experimental weapon allowed it to stand out.

Armed with an experimental mega ion cannon, the Malevolence could disable entire enemy fleets and use this to its advantage. Its power was so incredible that it was about to end the war during the early portion of the Clone Wars because no other fleet could withstand its mega ion canon. Nevertheless, its destruction allowed the Republic to have some breathing room.

11. Darth Vader’s TIE Fighter

vader tie

While Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing is the most iconic starfighter in Star Wars, Darth Vader’s modified TIE Fighter remains an icon in its own right as well and is one of the strongest starfighters we’ve seen in Star Wars.

This TIE Advanced fighter was designed to be piloted by Darth Vader, who is often regarded as the greatest pilot the galaxy has ever seen. In that regard, this starfighter was designed to be able to handle the discriminating tastes of the most skilled pilot in the Star Wars lore, and that’s why it is believed to be the best starfighter in the galaxy.

10. Invisible Hand


The Invisible Hand was the ship that served as the flagship of Count Dooku during the latter portion of the Clone Wars. It participated in the Battle of Coruscant because it was the one that housed the captured Chancellor Palpatine during the events of ‘Revenge of the Sith.’

In that regard, it was a force to be reckoned with as it housed a lot of droid squadrons and droid starfighters. And it is iconic because the duo of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi crash-landed half of the ship on Coruscant in their effort to bring back the Chancellor.

9. Devastator


Darth Vader’s personal Super Star Destroyer was the Devastator, which was a lot bigger than almost any other star destroyer then. In that regard, it housed 40,000 crew members and was one of the most imposing ships in the history of Star Wars due to how huge it was.

When it first appeared, it dwarfed the Tantive IV, which isn’t even a tiny ship. In that regard, the Devastator was one of the Empire’s symbols of power, as anyone who saw it would tremble in awe and fear at the sheer size and might of this massive Super Star Destroyer.

8. Finalizer


One of the biggest ships we saw during the events of the sequel trilogy was the Finalizer, which was the very same ship that Kylo Ren and General Hux used as their flagship while hunting down the Resistance. It is nearly twice the length of an ordinary star destroyer, and that’s why it is so imposing.

On top of the fact that this cruiser is so large, it carries next-level weaponry that is able to take on entire fleets on its own. It had 1,500 turbolasers and ion cannons combined, making it one of the most feared ships during the time of the First Order’s dominance.

7. Millennium Falcon


The most unlikely ship of all time is the Millennium Falcon because no one would ever expect this ship to actually do something against some of the fastest and most imposing ships in the galaxy. However, despite its age and relative wear and tear, the Millennium Falcon has always done its job perfectly for Han Solo and the rest of the Rebels.

While it may be old and trashy, the Millennium Falcon was always considered one of the fastest ships in the entire galaxy. On top of that, it was very durable and tough, as it could withstand enemy attacks without failing. And it wasn’t shabby in terms of its offense, as it boosted enough weapons that could bring down ships much larger than it.

6. Executor


The Executor was Darth Vader’s flagship for his Death Squadron, as this 19-kilometer beast was much bigger than the standard Super Star Destroyer and was much more imposing than any other ship that the Empire had during the Imperial era. And it was perfect for the type of figure Darth Vader was for the Empire.

The thing about the Executor is that it was an entire army all on its own because it was armed with over 5,000 turbolasers and ion cannon batteries. On top of that, it could carry a lot of different starfighters that could aid it in battle. It was truly a sight to behold due to how massive, imposing, and feared it was during the Empire’s reign of terror.

5. Death Star

death star

Undoubtedly, one of the most feared ships in the history of Star Wars was the original Death Star, a space station that could travel through hyperspace and then suddenly appear as a moon just outside a planet’s atmosphere. And when it was outside a planet, it was too late for the people of that world.

The Death Star, with a diameter of around 160 kilometers, could destroy planets at will due to its superlaser’s power. It was also impossible to destroy, except for the massive design flaw that Galen Erso installed into the structure to allow the Rebels to destroy it and give hope to the galaxy.

4. Death Star II

death star 2

The Death Star II was constructed as the successor of the original Death Star. This one was much bigger than the original Death Star because Palpatine ordered it to be more imposing than the first version. On top of that, it didn’t come with the same weakness that the original Death Star had.


Star Wars: 20 Best Darth Vader Quotes

Of course, the Death Star II was meant to have the same superlaser that the Death Star had. The only problem with this space station was the fact that it was never completed. The Rebels destroyed it before it could even be fully operational, as Emperor Palpatine also went down together with this moon-like structure.

3. Starkiller Base


Meant as the spiritual successor of the Death Star, Starkiller Base was an entire planet that was converted into a massive space station that could suck in the power of nearby stars to produce an attack so devastating that it made the Death Star look like a BB gun.

Starkiller Base was so powerful and dangerous because it housed a large superweapon capable of firing a beam that could split into several smaller beams to destroy multiple planets all at once. The scariest part is that Starkiller Base’s superweapon can fire from several lightyears away, so its targets won’t see the attack coming.

2. Xyston-class Star Destroyer

final order

The Xyston-class Star Destroyers were the backbone of Emperor Palpatine’s Final Order fleet during the events of ‘Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker.’ These ships were constructed secretly on Exegol as one of Palpatine’s contingency plans for the future. And the entire fleet could force the galaxy to its knees.

That’s because all of these star destroyers were equipped with superweapons that could destroy entire planets. In that regard, imagine the Xyston-class to be a smaller, more mobile Death Star with the same capacity to destroy planets. As such, these star destroyers could go from one system to another to destroy planets against the First Order.

1. Supremacy


Undoubtedly one of the biggest and strongest ships ever seen in Star Wars, the Supremacy was the flagship of the First Order when Supreme Leader Snoke led them. This thing is so massive that star destroyers looked like starfighters next to it. In that regard, conventional weapons wouldn’t have worked on it because of its sheer size.

While it may have been a ship, the Supremacy was the size of an entire city due to its size. Nevertheless, it was destroyed using the Holdo Maneuver as Holdo used the Raddus as a battering ram when she made it go through hyperspeed just in front of the Supremacy, thus destroying the massive ship that would have destroyed the Resistance.
