Star Wars: Episode I Jedi Power Battles was a console game published for use with the Sony PlayStation and Sega Dreamcast in April of 2000. It inserted players into events in and during Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace from the perspective of one of five Episode I Jedi, such as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn, Mace Windu, Adi Gallia, and Plo Koon. Additionally there are number of secret characters that can be unlocked after completing the game such as Queen Amidala, Captain Quarsh Panaka, and Darth Maul. The Dreamcast version also included the Jedi Ki-Adi-Mundi. Players can play as Gungans and droidekas in unlockable mini-games. Anakin Skywalker appears as a NPC on Tatooine, Level 5.

  • There are several differences between gameplay in the PlayStation and Dreamcast version of the game:
    • Curiously, Ki-Adi Mundi was not in the PlayStation version of Jedi Power Battles; however, his name still appeared in the credits.
    • There is no difference in difficulty if you choose 'Jedi Mode' on the PlayStation version.
    • There was a training arena in the Dreamcast version, which doubled as a two-player versus arena. This was cut out of the PlayStation version.
    • Various computer panels can be destroyed in the PlayStation version to gain extra points, whereas they cannot be destroyed in the Dreamcast version.
  • If the player chooses to play as Queen Amidala during "Theed Palace", then she will not talk at all during the two cutscenes in the level.
  • Darth Maul has his own voice in "Theed Palace" but uses Mace Windu's voice in "Tatooine."
  • Qui-Gon for some reason is still alive after the Battle of Naboo.
  • If one chooses to play a two-player game, he/she will be unable to unlock all but the Survival Challenge bonus levels.
  • Mace Windu uses a blue lightsaber just like the Episode I action figure of Samuel L. Jackson, as George Lucas had yet to agree that Windu uses the purple lightsaber seen in Episode II. (Of course his blue lightsaber is likely canon as the lightsaber hilt he uses also changes from Episode I to Episode II).
  • Also note power ups can be used in the PlayStation version.

In "Final Battle" Darth Maul respawns at the energy bridge in the Theed generator room when defeated. If the player runs away and jumps down to the catwalk below the three rings another Darth Maul will be waiting there resulting in the player fighting two Darth Mauls at the same time.
