  • Yes, Absolutely For Sure

    Obi-Wan trained Anakin who became one of the most powerful Jedi/Sith of all time. He killed Darth Maul, killed General Grievous, survived two encounters with Count Douku, survived two encounters with Darth Vader, curbed Vader's power by burning him to death. Obi-Wan stayed undetected by the Empire for years. Led and trained Luke. Led Luke to Yoda. Had a big part in destroying the Empire. Sat on the Jedi Council. He really was a kick ass Jedi.

    Inb4 Yoda... Obi-Wan accomplished a lot more in Crunch Time than Yoda ever did. Yoda fought the Emperor once and gave up...

  • Obi wan is the best!!

    He was the one to defeat mail, the first sith lord that was known to the jedi in a thousand years. Not to mention at the time he defeated maul, he was a PADAWAN! He was also one of the only people to face Darth Vader and defeat him. He was named the master soresou by master windu, and in some cannon comics, he could survive torture far beyond any other. That is why I believe obi wan is the best jedi ever

  • His beard is the reason

    Yoda and the rest just sat on comfy cushions while watching him do everything

    Plus his beard was so perfectly trimmed that his hair molecules would conjure up the force letting the force flow through further aiding him into be da best Jedi ever.


    To have a beard that good would require the most absolute mastery of the force in order to make it that perfect and to have that amount of Percision

    I bet his beard alone would be too much for even a lightsaber blow to get through easily
    Plus he's a nice guy and nice guys DO FINISH FIRST well at least I hope they do or else I'm forever alone just sobbing at home under neath my Death Star blanket obi wan robe and yoda slippers

    Plus he has the best name ever well actually second best mine is the best

  • Greatest Jedi of all time!

    Obi Wan Kenobi was, for reasons that may elude many, the greatest Jedi.
    As stated by others, he was versatile. He was also very wise, even at a young age, and this wisdom grew with age. His wisdom allowed him a more full, and balanced use of his powers/influence of the force. And so when Anakin at his peak, angry and flowing something fierce with the Darkside, was defeated by Obi Wan. This is a great example of what greatness is... Raw power? NO.
    Find balance you must!
    Obi Wan was not perfect. He was not all powerful. He was not perfectly wise.
    He showed a playful spirit (great attribute)! He found balance even when he could have been very emotionally compromised. He could achieve great feats of force/power/influence. He was exceptional with a saber, we just saw him fighting the best of the best so it may not have seemed so.
    Add it all up and I think he deserves the title of the greatest of all time.

  • Obi-wan is the Jedi poster boy

    Obi-wan was the first to defeat a Sith Lord in years, trained the most powerful force user alive and his son too, defeated general grievous who was a known Jedi killer, defeated Darth Vader at his prime, was one of the generals in the clone wars with the least amount of casualties and ended problems diplomatically if he could, survived order 66, stayed under the empires radar for years, he discovered the clone army and became one with the force.

  • Obi wan kenobi was the best jedi ever

    He was the jedi in the 6 of the 7 movies. Therefore he was an important character. In movie 3 obi wan won his fight when yoda lost. So this is proof that obi wan kenobi was better at fighting than yoda the so called best. Obi wan is much better than yoda

  • Pretty much everything in the Star Wars universe is Obi-Wan's fault.

    He is partially responsible for Qui-Gon's death. I mean, the man JOGS casually to the battle with Darth Maul.

    The Death Star being built at all is his fault. He had a chance to kill Count Dooku, the man with the plans, but lost- to an extremely old and decrepit man.

    He treats Anakin like crap, patronizes him constantly, and only took him as a Padowan reluctantly. He could have stopped his fall to the Dark Side if he'd been any kind of mentor.

    He couldn't use his "awesome powers" to figure out Palpatine was the Sith Lord, despite being in the same room with him frequently. Admittedly this one is on the other Jedi Masters too.

    He is responsible for the end of the entire Jedi Order, since he could have just KILLED ANAKIN in his climactic battle.

    He lives on the same damn planet as Luke, yet never actually trains him. If Anakin was "too old" at nine to train, why the $#*^& didn't he train Luke? Yeah, it's not like he was the last hope of the universe or anything. Everything in IV, V, and VI that Luke goes through (having to leave the Alliance at a crap time to train with Yoda, leaving unprepared, losing his hand, etc) is totally due to his completely avoidable lack of training. Also, what the hell was wrong with training Leia? She have girl cooties or something, old Jedi's club?

    Despite being "one with the Force", totally leaves Luke to die on Hoth.

    Almost, through his systematic campaign of telling Luke how irredeemable and evil Vader is, kept Luke from "seeing the good in him", thus defeating the Emperor.

    Obi-Wan= d-bag

  • Obi-Wan cannot be the best of ALL TIME

    Master Yoda will hands down be the best jedi of all time. After all he did train almost the entire jedi order during his time, and since some one from the "yes" side pointed out, Not only did yoda survive his encounter against Count Dooku, a) Yoda trained Dooku, b) Yoda nearly whooped his ass if not to concentrate saving Obi-wan and anakin at that time. Also Yoda has defeated a whole of squad of droids without even drawing his lightsabers, and with his lightsaber he destroyed a freakin tank. Point taken?

  • Obi-Wan was certainly not the best.

    Sure, Obi-Wan was a pretty good Jedi. But he was defeated by both Count Dooku, whom Yoda defeated, and Darth Vader, whom Luke defeated. He did defeat Anakin and Maul, but Anakin was also defeated by Dooku. In terms of fights, Windu and Yoda come out as the top fighters, not Obi-Wan.

    So was his mentoring skill unmatched? I'm going to have to say no. Obi-Wan was a pretty awful mentor to Anakin, and apparently forgot the rebellious nature of Qui-Gon that got him into this situation in the first place. In fact, I would say his strict, rule-abiding nature and attitude were driving forces that brought Anakin to the dark side. If Qui-Gon had been the sole survivor of the fight against Maul, Anakin may have avoided becoming Vader.

    Now, as for other feats, he was quite great at surviving stuff. He's the sole survivor of the Maul fight, he managed to escape a brutl fight with Dooku without needing a prosthetic hand, and was one of the few to live through Order 66. His eventual death was a sacrifice for Luke and friends, which eventually enabled them to defeat the empire. He also mentored two of the greatest lightsaber wielders ever, and was mentored by a third.

    In the end, however, the cons deny him the spot of greatest Jedi ever. He forgot all of Qui-Gon's rebellious nature and was an bad mentor to Anakin, maybe even triggering his transformation into Darth Vader. And in terms of combat, he failed to Dooku whilst Anakin and Yoda succeeded. Yes, he's a good Jedi. But the best ever? I would campaign for Yoda there.

  • No he wasent

    Why because its first yoda obi wan is a good jedi but he cant be the best because he never would get the 100% of his capacity like joba Anakin was a good jedi only that gets on the darck side . Created by Angel amador thanks for your attention

  • While he was a great jedi I would not say he was the best

    I make the argument for revan, the original knight. While he was a sith for short while he did eventually return to force. His power to control the force was immense And his lightsaber combat skills were equally unparrallled. Revan was often described has the living force. He could create the force at will and created the forge.

I find it odd that so far both columns are arguing for who is better at killing people with a lazer sword.
