Star Wars Knowledge: Become an Expert on Lightsabers, the Most Famous Weapon in Sci-Fi History
< >
Is there any weapon that has captivated fans quite as much as the Lightsaber? An icon of the Star Wars franchise, the Lightsaber has built up a deep mythology since A New Hope was released in 1977, wielded by great characters such as Darth Vader, Obi Wan Kenobi, and Yoda. But how good is your knowledge of the famed Sith and Jedi weapon? Do you know your greens from your reds, and your double-bladed from your dark sabers? Top up your knowledge with this infographical guide to the greatest weapon in science fiction history.

While it's not a comprehensive guide to every single Lightsaber, it does showcase some of the most famous versions of the weapon.



The infographic reads like a who's who of force sensitive goodies and baddies, from legendary Jedi like Luke Skywalker and Qui-Gon Jinn to some of the darkest characters ever grace the big screen. While many will instantly recognize the colors of the various lightsaber blades, the hilts often go unnoticed. This infographic highlights the massive variation that can occur at the 'nuts and bolts' end of this famous weapon. Count Dooku and His one-time apprentice Asajj Ventress had some of the more extravagant blades, but even they were made to look average when The Inquisitor stepped  onto the scene in Star Wars Rebels.

Is this infographic missing any of your favorite character's blades? Which one would you pick if you were ever lucky enough to discover some force sensitivity? Let us know below...
