Anakin's trialsEdit

Anakin Skywalker was promoted without facing the trials, with the reasoning being that he had faced enough trials by serving in a time of war, and also that the Order needed more Knights to help defend the Republic.

Incorrect. The Clone Wars cartoon played a bit loose with continuity. Anakin's "trials" were in the aptly named Jedi Trial. QuentinGeorge 07:42, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • Wow. How do we reconcile this one? Clone Wars falls pretty high in canon, doesn't it? I hate it when they do this. *bangs head on desk* – Aidje talk 14:36, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)
    • It's C-canon, as all Eu material. --Imp 14:50, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)
      • I've been looking at the time line of the Clone Wars on it's article here. If my reading is correct, Anakin was declared a Knight shortly after the battles of Munnilinst and Hypori, early in the war, while Jedi Trial takes place near the end of the war. --User:SFH
        • The episode of Anakin's knighting has been confirmed as occurring shortly after Jedi Trial - remember, Obi-Wan's on the Council. QuentinGeorge 02:52, 21 January 2006 (UTC)

Did any members of Luke Skywalker's New Jedi Order go through a jedi knighthood trial? I just wanted to knew from you guys.Thanks.

  • I think some undergo that "trial of the mirror" one where they stare down their own inner demons, but I don't know if they always do that or if it's just special cases now. As to the other trials, I have no idea. -- SFH 15:15, 16 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Well, very occasionally the council might consider a life experience as sufficient enough to demonstrate the skills of a trial. Supposedly Kenobi's duel with Darth Maul was enough for the Jedi to forgo the trial of fear for him. Another possibility is that the canon has been affected.

Rite of PassageEdit



this doesn't work...they all become don't we need it to be ones who remained Knights? Jedi Dude 20:30, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

  • I added a bunch of Knights, nobody mentioned Ulic or Cay Qel-Droma, and Exar Kun. Also nobody mentioned, many Jedi from the NJO, like the Solo twins, Leia, Corran Horn, Kyp Durron, and others. Ben 00:16, 11 July 2006 (UTC)
    • Still, a lot of those are padawans, fallen Jedi, and masters. -- SFH 00:17, 11 July 2006 (UTC)
      • The section needs to be redone immediately in my opinion. It is turning into a fanboys list of Jedi of any rank. For Kriff's sake people, Ben isn't even a Jedi Knight yet. -- SFH 22:19, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
        • god this article, its not good for one, and people add such rubish to it. we don't need a famous list surely? Jedi Dude 22:22, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Mace Windu Edit

I'm not the only person missing Mace Windu at Ani's ceremony picture, right? Where's the purple lightsaber? Aitrym Quar 21:20, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

  • I think he just wasn't there. Probably off fighting the war. -LtNOWIS 02:34, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
    • Probably saving the "republic".-LordRevan501 18:38, 2 October 2006 (UTC)
      • it's not the only lightsaber mistake they make in the cartoon
        • thats why Anakin decides to kill him later, and not Palpatine. --The IP

OT Edit

There are no Jedi "Knights" so to speak, in the OT. Or at least, not in ESB or ANH. Just apprentices and masters. .... 23:24, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

Discrepancy between Clone Wars and NJO Edit

Vergere says in Destiny's Way that Yoda just said "A Jedi Knight you are" and no ceremony occured, but clearly, in the Clone Wars TV series, there is a ceremony. Blade of Corellia 20:59, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

The ceremony is not a requirement for a Knighthood bestowal. The Grand Master can bestow the title upon a prospective Knight, as Yoda did with Obi-Wan Kenobi, or the ceremony can used as a formal induction, it's optional.

Age Edit

Does anyone know how old the youngest Jedi Knight was? Shouldn't that sort of information be posted? Aayla9 08:18, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Well, in the old Jedi Order, the record doesn't appear to be kept. But Jaden Korr was about 14, maybe 13 when he was knighted. He was born in 1 ABY and knighted in 14 ABY. Pretty young. But then the New Jedi Order needed the numbers.

Another Question Edit

How would a Jedi Knight be addressed? Forgive my ignorance, but I can't remember what Knights were referred to before they became Masters. I know Obi-Wan Kenobi was addressed as Master Kenobi, but that was while he was Anakin's Master... Wait, didn't one of the younglings call Anakin "Master Skywalker" in ROTS, even though he was still a Knight? --Crazy Jedi Girl 16:38, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Padawans it would appear address Jedi Knights as "Master" because the Knight is superior to them. Their title appears to be simply "Jedi (name)" as when Obi-Wan Kenobi was addressed as "Jedi Kenobi" during a senatorial session. "Master Jedi" appears to be used either as a honorific to a Knight by a respectful person.

Knight Question Edit

How come anakin still went on missions with Obi-Wan Kenobi once he was a Jedi Knight because he does at the start of ROTS and in clone wars Unsigned comment by Lee Starkiller (talk • contribs).

  • Just because they aren't Master-and-Apprentice after knighthood, it doesn't mean they never work together again. Remember to sign your posts with 4 tildes (~). NaruHina Talk Anakinsolo 07:48, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Appearances Edit

The appearances section of this article should be taken down. As it is, it's awafully incomplete, and it cannot ever be complete, since the stories with the Jedi in them are numbered with hundreds. Mauser 11:38, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

  • There are works where Jedi Knights do not appear, including the Ewoks movies and several short tales. During the Rebellion era, Jedi Knights were scarce to say anything. So we should not include Appearances because it is too big? Any article with more than, say, 199 appearances should lack an Appearances section? I do not think this is the best policy; it could also lead to take down the Appearances section of, say, Palpatine, Hutt, Luke Skywalker, R2-D2. If ever, I would propose replacing it (and similar sections) with an independent page, Appearances of Jedi Knights, or a "list of sources where Jedi Knights do not appear" section.--Skippy Farlstendoiro 08:07, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

New canon, historical info Edit

New SW:TOR entry on Jedi Knights. There may be some information there not covered in the article. JAF1970 18:33, October 30, 2009 (UTC)

Old Older Edit

A lot of the info on the section of "The Old Order" talks WAY too much about becoming a Jedi Master. I think different infor needs to be edited in and the Jedi Master stuff reduced. Jedi Striker 06:21, March 2, 2010 (UTC)

I can't believe this isn't mentioned here, but remember the opening crawl of The Phantom Menace says "two Jedi Knights" even though at this point Obi-Wan Kenobi is still an apprentice? My interpretation is that yes, Knight is a rank noting that you are a full member of the order, but also a general term for anyone in the order. Kind of like regardless of rank in the Police you can still be referred to as an "officer"- 09:20, August 18, 2013 (UTC)
