The Seven (Known) Colors
At current count, there are seven lightsaber blade colors in continuity. Here’s a quick look at them, what we know about them, and some examples of who uses them.
- Blue: probably the most standard color for a Jedi lightsaber. Used by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker.
- Green: a secondary Jedi blade color of equal significance to blue. Used by Luke Skywalker, Qui-Gon Jinn, and Yoda.
- Red: Evil Force users wield red-bladed weapons because of the synthetic Kyber crystals at their core. Used by Darth Vader, Darth Maul, Darth Sidious, Count Dooku, Inquisitors, and Kylo Ren.
- Purple: a rare lightsaber color seen on only a few Jedi blades. Best known for its use by Mace Windu.
- Yellow: Double-bladed yellow sabers are used exclusively by Jedi Temple Guards.
- White: Ahsoka Tano was the first character to wield white-bladed sabers (as an adult, on “Star Wars Rebels”). The story of how she acquired white Kyber crystals has yet to be told.
- Black: There is only one “Darksaber,” as it’s known, and it’s an ancient weapon stolen from the Jedi hundreds of years prior to the Clone Wars by the Mandalorians. Even more distinctive than its color is the Darksaber’s a flat, curved blade resembling a real sword. It eventually came into the possession of Darth Maul during the Clone Wars, but its current whereabouts are unknown.
There’s no reason to assume that these are the only colors lightsaber blades have ever been or will ever be. More colors are just one TV episode, movie, novel, comic book, or video game away.
