Throughout the history of Star Wars, loads of new characters and their lightsabers have been introduced to us over the span of many decades. This compilation is a list of those that are either very popular amongst the fan base, or simply just very cool.

The popular Old Republic era sith lord also wields one of the coolest lightsabers we have ever seen. While Revan used a variety of lightsabers, the most notable ones he used were during his time as a Sith and later after his redemption. This is the latter saber, which Revan made use of throughout his journeys in the expanded universe.

2 - Kylo Ren’s Crossguard Lightsaber

The sequel trilogy introduced us to a new type of lightsaber: the crossguard. Kylo Ren’s saber uses three blades. There is one main blade, and two smaller ones protruding from the side, protecting the handle. This design instantly drew fan attention.

3 - Palpatine’s Lightsaber

Palpatine’s short-handled lightsaber was revealed to us in the epic scene in Episode 3, when the chancellor’s identity is exposed. Palpatine’s lightsaber is certainly ornate, made out of premium materials such as alloy, truly worthy of a galactic ruler.

4 - Darth Maul’s Lightsaber

No list of lightsabers would be complete without Darth Maul’s. When Maul’s saber was introduced in the Phantom Menace all those years ago, it was a brand new concept. Fans were awed, as something like this had never been done. The addition of Darth Maul’s double-bladed saber (also known as a saberstaff) revolutionized the Star Wars universe.

5 - Ahsoka’s White Lightsabers

Introduced to us in the Rebels TV show, Ahsoka’s lightsabers are unique because they capture her personality perfectly. The blades are white, a perfectly neutral color, which resembles Ahsoka’s own neutrality after leaving the Jedi order.
