Were Ancient Sith More Powerful?

If you missed it earlier this year, The Stupendous Wave has another great video in his Star Wars Explained series on YouTube that talks about the Sith empire. Who is more powerful – ancient Sith or modern? How do they measure up throughout the Star Wars timeline? Is it something you’ve never thought about? Well, now’s the time to put some thoughts into motion and this video is going to help you out with that. Are you a new canon Star Wars fan who only knows Darth Vader as the strongest Sith? Are you an old school fan with a rich knowledge of Sith history? Either way, you’re going to love this video and how he breaks it all down for you. The Dark Lords of the ancient Sith empire are constantly hailed as far more powerful than the following generations of Sith even all the way up to Darth Bane’s rule…

Top 7 Most Powerful Sith Lords – Star Wars

There have been many powerful Sith in Star Wars lore. There’s Darth Bane, Darth Maul, and the very popular Darth Vader. There was also Exar Kun and Marka Ragnos (who ruled for over 100 years). Then we also don’t want to forget Lord Vitiate or Darth Sidious. How do you even begin to put all that dark evilness into a list? Whether you are a full-fledged fan of the Dark Side, or someone who leans toward the Light, you still have to give credit where it’s due when it comes to these amazing, powerful Dark Lords. It’s hard to compete with the likes of bad guys who can destroy entire planets with just their minds. Also, they wear capes. How cool is that? This video from Star Wars Theory covers from of the most powerful Sith Lords (as listed below) and a brief history of how they came to be. This is…

Top 5 Female SITH from Star Wars

While many people know the male Sith lords, fewer people know about the great females of the Sith. This was an equal opportunity universe and there were just as many female powerful Sith as there were male. In fact, some of the females rose to power, overtaking their own masters, or leading independently in their own right. Here’s a great video I happened upon that lists some of the top five female Sith from Star Wars. One reason I love this video so much is that he pretty much picked my picks. If I had to create a top list, it would include the same ladies. In fact, I would have picked the very same one for 1st place. The title Lady of the Sith is the female equivalent to Lord of the Sith and there have been quite a few of them over the generations of Star Wars lore….

Sith That Didn’t Use Red Lightsabers [Video]

Contrary to popular belief, not all Sith used red lightsabers. In this video from The Stupendous Wave we learn more about the Sith who didn’t use red lightsabers. If you’re looking to learn a bit more about Star Wars lore, more about Sith and the lightsabers they used, then this video is for you. While the iconic red Sith saber is synonymous with the Dark Side for most Star Wars fans, it can be difficult to think of them using any other colors. Then there are those who think it would be alright to have a bit more color in the Force, on either side. Whatever your stance on saber colors, it’s a fun little video that will probably teach you a few things. It’s just under 6 minutes long so it’s great for watching during a break and it won’t take up a lot of your time. If you like it,…

Can the Dark Side of the Force be Used for the Greater Good?

Star Wars lore and The Force is something that has been written, discussed, debated and analyzed since the first film’s debut. One topic of the Star Wars story that has been questioned and debated over the years is that of the Force and Light and Dark side. In this video, we can explore the question “Can the Dark Side of the Force be used for the greater good?” Some will argue that the Dark Side itself is inherently evil and that simply by choosing to act on the Dark, you cannot do good, and that you will become evil. The same is said of the Light Side and good. But if we really break down the story, we see that even the Light Side sometimes questions their goodness or makes choices that could be considered “evil”. Maybe it is not really as black and white as we’d like to think….

Darth Malgus Versus Count Dooku DEATHMATCH

by FrelsAreN, DeviantART   by lelmer77, DeviantART  Jensaarai1 aka the Nerd-Rage Ranter, a video blogger on YouTube, is probably one of the greatest experts on Star Wars I have seen in some time. He appears to be well versed in all the movies, both of the Clone Wars series and the comic book series (Dark Horse). I have not heard him mention the novels in his analyses, but I wouldn’t put it passed him. Rest assured he is an expert on the Expanded Universe of Star Wars, which pretty much trumps those who only know about the movies when it comes to general Star Wars knowledge. What really impresses me is his unique knowledge on everything that is the lightsaber, which is impeccable. He made a 10 episode series throughout 2012, called the “Versus Series” where he pits Jedi against Jedi, Sith against Sith and Jedi against Sith in “what…
