When we think about Star Wars, the first things that come to our minds are lightsabers, Jedis, and Sith Lords. Sometimes it is the lightsabers that stole the show, sometimes Jedis win our hearts, but most of the time, it is a combination of both the Force wielders and the lightsabers that make Star Wars what it is famous for.
Anakin Skywalker is one of the major characters who interest Star Wars fans of all ages. Anakin Skywalker was the most loved character before and even after turning to the Dark Side. His lightsaber is also the most popular lightsaber of all the lightsabers we see today.
Anakin Skywalker was one of the greatest Jedis that ever lived, but his childhood was not that bright. When he was a child, he lived with his mother as a slave on Tattoine. However, his potential was too high to be left alone in the desert.
A Jedi named Qui-Gon Jinn found Anakin on Tattoine and felt the potential he had. Anakin had Midi-Chlorian levels above twenty thousand as a child. The average Jedi has less than 15000 Midi-chlorian levels. A talent this big could not be ignored. Qui-Gon Jinn decided to bring Anakin alongside, and the journey of Anakin Skywalker to become a Jedi began.
Obi-Wan Kenobi, a Padawan of Qui-Gon, trained Anakin Skywalker when he was young. Anakin became Obi-Wan’s padawan after Anakin grew up and wielded a green lightsaber with a single standard hilt.
Anakin Skywalker continued to use this blue lightsaber until the Clone Wars began, and then later, he got a blue lightsaber after he lost his first one. The Clone Wars continued for many years, and Anakin Skywalker took part in many important missions and battles during the Clone Wars. His blue lightsaber act as his right hand and help Anakin learn more and become more skillful.
During the Clone Wars, Anakin lost his lightsaber many times, but Obi-Wan found it every time. It is said that Anakin also created five lightsabers in total before he got his final lightsaber.
Anakin Skywalker Clone Wars Battles
Anakin became an inspiration for many people and even Jedis. He completed many missions successfully. He fought many battles during the Clone Wars. Most of the time, Anakin fought against Count Dooku, the initiator of the separatist army.
If you have watched the Clone Wars series, he fought at least 9 times against Count Dooku and even finished him in the finale of the prequel trilogy “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.” The other major characters he fought against in the Clone Wars are Assajj Ventress, Bariss Offee, and Tusken Raiders.
During the Clone Wars, Anakin became extremely proficient and powerful. He even earned the title of Jedi Knight and then Jedi Master. However, the upcoming events were going to change everything for him.
The fear of losing his loved ones caused the Dark energy to rise within him, and he was lured by the Dark Side. During the execution of Order 66 and the end of the Clone Wars, Anakin became a Sith Lord of the Darkness.
After turning to the Dark Side, Anakin fought his last battles with a blue lightsaber against his own master Obi-Wan. Both fought furiously, but Anakin lost the battle, and Obi-Wan took his lightsaber and left him. Anakin’s blue lightsaber stayed in possession of Obi-Wan for more than a decade.
What Is Anakin’s Lightsaber Called?
Anakin’s lightsaber is called Skywalker lightsaber, and the reason is not just Anakin’s surname. There is a deeper reason behind why this lightsaber has a special name while others do not.
Anakin created this lightsaber when he was young, but when he turned to the Dark Side, the lightsaber went to Obi-Wan, and he kept it safe. When Anakin’s son, Luke Skywalker, grew up, Obi-Wan gave this lightsaber to Luke. Luke became a Jedi. He was a chosen one, as the prophecy said, and he ended the Empire.
During Luke’s fight against Darth Vader, he lost his lightsaber, and it was lost in the depths of Cloud City.
This blue lightsaber appeared again many years later during the next generation of the Jedis. Rey Skywalker, a young Jedi, found this lightsaber in a castle, and she also used it and even killed Palpatine for good with this lightsaber.
Since the same lightsaber was wielded by three different skywalkers of three different generations, this lightsaber got famous as the Skywalker lightsaber.
Why Did Rey Bury Skywalker Lightsaber
In the finale of the sequel trilogy “Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker.” We saw Rey burying the Skywalker lightsaber in a dessert. This brings the question that why did Rey bury the skywalker lightsaber?
There are different explanations for the topic. Some people say that Rey buried the lightsaber to show that she ended the Sith/ Jedi rivalry forever. She wielded a yellow lightsaber right after that. The yellow lightsaber represents a person who has a connection to both the Light and Dark Force.
Her burying the greatest Jedi’s lightsaber and wielding a yellow lightsaber could mean she became both the Sith and Jedi and finished the rivalry to bring peace to the Galaxy.
Other people say Rey buried the Skywalker lightsaber to honor the legacy of skywalkers. Since she also buried Leia’s lightsaber alongside, it makes sense that she honored both her masters by burying their lightsabers.
How many Color lightsabers did Anakin Use?
Anakin had more than 3 lightsabers throughout his life as a Jedi, but he only used a blue color in all of his lightsabers.
Even after turning to the Dark Side and becoming Darth Vader, he used his blue lightsaber for quite a while, but he lost it against Obi-Wan.
Instead of crafting a new blue lightsaber, he opted for a red lightsaber this time. The red color is the symbol of the Sith Lords, so he decided to get a red lightsaber. This red lightsaber was made with two crystals.
One was an artificial synthetic crystal, and the other was a natural Kyber crystal. So, Anakin used at least two colors, blue and red, throughout his life. However, during the Clone Wars, he used the first green lightsaber, but later, he used only blue lightsabers.
