Lightsaber duel/Legends was the improvement drive project for the week of 14 January 2007.
See how it improvedOther improvement drives

Palpatine was defeated?Edit

I don't see how he was defeated. He purposely lost in order to have Anakin confront the situation and make a decision. It is fairly obvious. T3hcho53non3 02:49, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

  • Whether he purposely lost or not, he still lost, and therefore was defeated. -- Doo Doo 02:52, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

Palpatine vs. YodaEdit

  • Was it a draw or a defeat for Yoda? He did give up and flee. I think if they both couldn't fight any longer, it would be a draw.--Darth Oblivion 16:22, 25 August 2006 (UTC)
    • Defeat. Otherwise he would not have run. .... 01:01, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

EU materialEdit

Can someone please add in all of the EU duels? I've tabalised the film duels, but the EU stuff needs to be in there. We don't want to be movie purists, do we? .... 01:00, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

We should have EU duels, but not all of them, as their is simply too many of them. Darth A*skicker 20:54, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Not a problem for this site. -- Riffsyphon1024 07:24, 7 January 2007 (UTC)


Because we are soon to be adding EU duels, how should we list battles?

My idea -

Old Republic era duels

Rise of the Empire era duels

Rebellion era duels

New Republic era duels

New Jedi Order era duels

Legacy era duels

Infinitie era duels

  • Is this article going to be in-universe? Because if so, than it should be chronological, without movie/EU divisions. -LtNOWIS 06:21, 14 January 2007 (UTC)
    • I think it should be in-universe and therefore chronological. What does everyone else think? Grunny (Talk) 06:58, 14 January 2007 (UTC)
      • Agreed. I vote for in-universe. None of this film/EU breakup. -- Doran 20:07, 14 January 2007 (UTC)
    • This page is just usseles! --Themelle444 18:33, 14 January 2007 (UTC)
        • Yes, there shouldn't be two sections. .... 23:03, 14 January 2007 (UTC)
  • I think it should remain divided. easier for alot of people, but i gotta say it's gonna make the movies look pretty tame after a while. as to to the useless comment, we need more pages like this cutting to the meat and potatoes of duels rather than more long and drawn articles spoiling the whole story. Darth Depressis
    • We also need to keep an in-universe perspective, so a timeline makes far more sense than a films vs. EU list - \\Captain Kwenn// Ahoy! 23:14, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

Maul vs. DarshaEdit

Why is that listed under "Duels in Star Wars films"? It was in a book. -- Doran 20:02, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Never mind, if we're going to combine the lists anyway. -- Doran 20:10, 14 January 2007 (UTC)


Right, so I expanded the EU material a little bit. I won't merge it with the film stuff until a consensus is come to. I accidentally deleted the entire beginning, as well as the film stuff for a few seconds, but I restored it. Sorry about that. If anybody thinks the Conclave on Kessel information is a little superfluous, feel free to reduce it. I'm bad at summaries. -- Doran 21:21, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

Revan vs. BastilaEdit

Should this be included there? I mean the one where they fight atop the Rakata temple. Yes, or is it too minor? Skywalka 23:25, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

when was this? is it a dark side mission. Darth Depressis14 January 2007

  • It is just before you go to the Star Forge... Did they fight, or do I have bad recall? Also, talking of battles involving Revan, what about him vs. Juhanni? Skywalka 04:49, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
    • Yeah, they fought, and Bastila ran off. I would think if we've got Yoda vs. Dooku, than we should have that one too. -LtNOWIS 07:35, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
      • Shouldn't the time when they fought on the Star Forge be on there, too? --Yoshi626 07:44, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
        • Well, I added the duel between Revan and Bastila, as well as the one between Revan and Bandon. I think that one was significant enough. When you think about it, the articles missing a lot of duels. Revan and Juhani, Ulic and Sylvar, etc. should we slap some form of stub on the article? Also, should it really be in the Films category?--Lord OblivionSith holocron20px 07:45, 15 January 2007 (UTC)


Can we please leave it simple, like I did for the Movie Duels? This is supposed to be for reference, not a description of the whole fight. .... 07:56, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Article StructureEdit

Why is this simply a list of lightsaber duels? I understand a section referring to and/or listing famous duels in different eras, but a comprehensive list of every lightsaber duel ever held would be almost impossible to make. The article should focus more on the importance of them, a little bit on the style, etc. 03:10, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

  • It is a list of duels because that is what the article's about. In fact, shouldn't the title say "List of Lightsaber duels?" Many other articles have the "List of" in front of it.01:36, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

Streamlining and StandardizingEdit

I would like to trim the titles (High General, Supreme Chancellor, Jedi Knight, Grand Poobah, etc) from the tables. It's only listed for some of them, it makes the whole thing cluttered, and it's off-topic and superfluous. If someone wants to know what title someone had, they can follow the link.

Speaking of which, I would also like to standardize it so that all the entries under the combatants, planets, and dates are links.

  • Please do. I don't understand the point of titles being here myself. QuentinGeorge 06:45, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Haruun Kal duelsEdit

Why is there no mention of Mace Windu's duels with Depa and Vastor described in Shatterpoint(novel)? 20:47, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

If it isn't there, add it. Also, for those of you who say that there are too many duels to count, you must realize that there is an average of 1 duel per novel. Now comics might be a little harder. Games will be harder too. But it is still easily do-able. Lets impove this articles completeness. I will when I have the time. Maybe we could start by completing a character....Darth Vader will be the hardest. Lets start with him. Who did he kill in the purge. IthinkIwannaLeia 01:44, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

Darth Maul, Naga SadowEdit

I wanted to know if anyone objected to me creating and then adding to this page specific articles about the duels between Darth Maul & Mighella, and Naga Sadow & Ludo Kressh? Before anyone tells me that these may not constitute actual lightsaber duels (because Mighella fought with a sabre & the Sith Lords both fought each other with Sith Swords), please remember that Exar Kun & Vodo Siosk-Baas' duel was one fought with only one combatatant weilding a lightsaber. If noone responds/objects/cares, then I will proceed as planned. As well, I would like to add more, just to make this and the website as a whole more complete and matter-of-fact. Please advise, thanks. --Tommy9281 (I live as energy...I am the dark side!) 01/23/08, 9:49pm

Article nameEdit

Is there any reason the singular article title Lightsaber duel redirects to Lightsaber duels? It seems the singular title would be more appropriate. Thoughts? - JMAS Hey, it's me! 22:23, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

  • No reply since Monday. I'm gonna go ahead and move the article then. - JMAS Hey, it's me! 13:02, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Source for timeline placement for LotF: Invincible duelsEdit

Hi, to clear up any confusion the reason why I edited the lightsaber duels that take place in Invincible is because on the VIP thread of the official forums Sue Rostoni said that LFL have the series ending 41.5 ABY. A lot of articles have been updated to place the events of Invincible in 41 ABY. Below is the link to the thread. Hope that helps Elephanto 19:52, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Add Fisto and Grievous.Edit

I can't edit this page but someone should add Kit Fisto and Nahdar Vebb's duel with Grievous,Nahdar Vebb's duel with Grievous and 4 Magna Guards and Kit Fisto's and Grievous and 3 magnaguards.--Fisto-Arsix 23:05, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Ahsoka vs GrievousEdit

The duel between Ahsoka Tano and General Grievous on Skytop Station during the episode "Duel of the Droids" should be added to this list. I would do it myself but I am not allowed to edit this page. DarthHideous 05:38, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Never mind, I've taken care of it. DarthHideous 02:41, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Up datesEdit

Shouldn't this page be updated to include lightsaber duels from the FOTJ series? jedi_master425 August 25, 2009


Should this article have sources like the majority of the articles here, or do we think that linking to the article relevant to the event is sufficient? --Master Zervonn 20px Council Chambers 08:46, November 9, 2009 (UTC)

More DuelsEdit

Should the duel between Luke and that Kel Dor be along with the duel Leia and Jaina had with Nautu Wan be added to the list? Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

  • In the future, whenever there's information missing, feel free to add it yourself. I've added the duel between Wan and Leia and Jaina, but the duel between Luke and Koro Ziil cannot be added as it was a duel of only Force powers, and not lightsabers. Also, please remember to sign your posts with four tildes, like this: ~~~~ Jonjedigrandmaster (Jedi Beacon) 13:49, November 23, 2009 (UTC)

Showdown on CoruscantEdit

If the title is lightsaber 'duels' then shouldn't Agen Kolar and Saesee Tiin be removed from the duel against Darth Sidious as their blades never made contact with each other? --P.O.K.E.R. 01:18, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

Time LineEdit

If Anakin became a jedi knight in 22bby and had ahsoka as a padawan in that year why are the duels from Star Wars: The New Droid Army which Anakin was still a padawan in listed as happening in 21bby? jedi_master425

  • We do not know yet when TCW takes place. An official timeline has yet to be established. All we know that the Clone Wars timeline is screwed up. -- 1358 (Talk) 19:50, September 10, 2010 (UTC)
  • Then instead of putting duels that happen in the show in 22bby shouldn't we put them between 22bby and 19bby(22bby-19bby) until an official time frame for the show is established? jedi_master425 September 12,2010

Non Canon Lightsaber DuelsEdit

This may be a stupid thought but is there any possibility of making a section of all the known non canon lightsaber duels? jedi_master425 January 18, 2011


So....Am I the only one who seems to know how to update this page? NOT TO BE RUDE..(I learned my lessons), but we need to really start picking up the slack here. Its been over 2 months since the last Fate of the Jedi book came out, and NO ONE is updating to incorporate the events on Dromund Kaas. Also, there are duels from the 90's we missed, so I'm going to go ahead and add them. I have OCD, so I like my lists complete. --Jet Twilights 03:39, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

Image captionEdit

I don't have a copy of the book from which that image is taken, so I can't tell what info is provided about it. There is certainly not enough background visible to determine if the duel is taking place on Mimban or on Bespin, but Luke's outfit looks like the one he was wearing in his second duel with Darth, on Bespin. The caption claims it's their first duel. Is this supported in the book? Asithol 06:09, February 26, 2012 (UTC)

  • I've made the caption wording more vague about which duel it is until someone can confirm details. Asithol 23:53, March 6, 2012 (UTC)

Luke and Krayt VS Abeloth Edit

I don't think that fight counts as a Lightsaber duel being they never actually use there lightsabers. In fact, there is a direct moment that shows they CAN'T take out there lightsabers because there beyond shadows and weapons don't follow them beyond shadows. SO, should this still count?--Jet Twilights (talk) 02:49, July 28, 2012 (UTC)

Je'daii duels? Edit

Does these duels also belong here? Mainly from Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi: The Prisoner of Bogan story arc. Though their Force-imbued blade swords aren't lightsabers nor is forcesaber. Should we include them here anyway? -- Jedi Marty (talk) 16:35, October 8, 2013 (UTC)

  • I think Naga Sadow and Ludo Kressh used Sith Swords, not Lightsabers in there duel. If that counts, then the Je'daii duels should.-- 06:12, December 1, 2013 (UTC)

Why was the entire legends list of duels deleted?
