“Your Lightsaber will make a fine addition to my collection.” These words of general grievous in ‘Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.’ left us all wondering about the many lightsabers he was holding during the battle with Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Where did he get the lightsabers? Does he own all of these lightsabers? Did he steal them from other Jedis? And how many lightsabers does General Grievous have? You will get this answer as you read more.
General Grievous, who served as the commander of the Droids army during the Clone Wars, was originally from the Shaleel race native of the planet Kalee. He lived his childhood on his home planet, mostly fighting a war against the other race, Huks, which he and his race lost.
General Grievous had intense hate for the Jedis for a reason. He turned to the Republic during the war to get help, but since the Republic had taken sides, he was sent back without any help. His people were left unintended to die and starve.
Not long after, he joined his forces with the Sith lords Darth Sidious and Darth Tyarannous against the Republic and the Jedi order. His purpose had nothing to do with the plan of Darth Sidious. He just wanted to see a world where there are no Jedi. He was so absorbed in his hate that he started hunting the Jedis.
took the lightsabers and kept them to himself. He was not Force-sensitive; he kept the lightsabers as his trophies. According to the legends, he had more than a hundred lightsabers in his collection, but the officials themselves confirm some.

Ur-Sema was the first of his victim right after joining the Sith Lords in the Clone Wars. She fought with Grievous at the battle of Geonosis. Like her, Nahdarr Vebb fought the Grievous and lost and added to his collection. General Grievous found the third Jedi named Daakman at the battle of Hiypori. Another one whom Grievous killed during the battle of Hiyopori is Shi’a Ji. He was only a Padawan and was killed in the early days of his Jedi life.
Mission by Master Yoda
Soon Bayt was the only Jedi who had a gold lightsaber. He was sent on a mission by Master Yoda and was ambushed by Grievous. These Jedis were not weak but not good enough to defeat the commander of the droids army.
Moving on to his next lightsaber, he gets this one from Tarr Seirr at the same place he crushed Sha’a Ji. After Grievous killed Sha’a Ji, he threw the roof on Tarr Seirr and ultimately killed him.
Foul Madama, another Jedi knight who went on a mission to rescue Chancellor Palpatine, was ganked by Grievous. Many other Jedis were killed during the battle of Hiypori. If you want to watch this, you can watch the 2D animated movie ‘Clone Wars’ released in 2002.
General Grievous faced-off many other Jedi, but those were much higher in power, and he could not kill them. Right before Order 66, Grievous fought with Obi-Wan Kenobi. “General Kenobi, You are a bold one.” Said Grievous when he found Kenobi to be powerful.
He fought against Kenobi with multiple lightsabers but still could not defeat him. The battle resulted in Kenobi killing Grievous. No one knows what happens to his collection afterward. Since Order 66 was such a punch to the Republic, they could not recover from this, let alone find time to search for these sabers.
Grievous appeared in Star Wars Episodes 1,2 and 3 as well the 2D animated Clone Wars movie. So, how many lightsabers does General Grievous have? No one knows the exact numbers but now you got an idea about his collection.
During the Clone Wars, Grievous killed many other Jedis, but he did not live to see the world he once dreamt of. In a world where there are no Jedi but one way or another, his cause was achieved after completing Order 66. More than 10 thousand Jedis were killed, and very few survived and lived their lives running and hiding. Well, only until the New Hope appears.
