Star Wars: Most powerful beings in the Universe
Some of us have been in quarantine so long, we’re starting to feel like Han Solo in carbonite. That’s why Star Wars Day couldn’t come at a better time.
“May the 4th” is a day for all lovers of Jedi, Sith, the Resistance, the Skywalkers, the Hutts, Boba Fett, Gamorrean guards, Maz Kanata, General Grievous, Rancor Keeper and Snap Wexley to unite and celebrate all there is in the galaxy far, far away.
This Star Wars Day, it’s time to celebrate the upcoming 40th anniversary of “The Empire Strikes Back,” which premiered May 21, 1980, with these powerful beings in the Star Wars Universe.
You remember Mother, right? From about four entries back. Well, this is Father. They are both member of The Ones— an ethereal group of god-entities, consisting of them and their children. All are infinitely powerful, but for the plot device dagger.
Father is the most powerful of these entities, and by far the oldest. At her oldest, Mother was 100,000— Father is over one million years old. No one has a greater knowledge of the Force than Father. He can shape-shift, hold lightsabers by their blade without injury, and can teleport across the galaxy in seconds.
The Force Priestesses
The Priestesses are a little hard to peg down. They have had very little time for development, as they debuted not long before the Expanded Universe was wiped out. The Five have made appearances since in the new canon, which isn’t all that different from what had been established, but they also haven’t been seen much either.
From what we have on them, they’re beings who exist between life (the Living Force) and death (the Cosmic Force). They manifest themselves into different representations of emotions and have the ability to teach Force users how to become Force ghosts after death and may be the living extension of the Force itself.
The Bedlam Spirits
Well, we’re going to get weird now. The Bedlam Spirits are the very definition of appearances being deceiving— one of them looks like a dirty basketball and another looks like a depressed triangle. However, they’re incredibly powerful.
Like the Force Priestesses, it’s unknown how much, if at all, the Bedlam Spirits have to do with the Force. They’re nonhumanoid entities that are capable of creating and destroying at will; restoring the dead to life or draining the life from living things. They exist in all times and places at once and can change matter and time at will.
With barely any training, Luke Skywalker blew up the Death Star, and defeated both Darth Vader and the Emperor. You have to admire the guy.
Luke succeeded in fighting off the Yuuzhan Vong invasion despite the fact they are unreceptive and imperceptible to the Force. Luke also became capable of producing Force Lightning from his fingers, but there is one feat that stands on its own. Luke seized control of a black hole and forced it to collapse in on itself. That sound you hear is your own face melting. That’s how metal Luke Skywalker is.
Sure, he looks ridiculous, his voice is obnoxious, and his butchering of syntax is tedious as it is unforgivable, but the little muppet is incredibly powerful. Yoda is widely considered to be the second most powerful Jedi ever— being able to handle himself in duels against Palpatine and Count Dooku, as well as lifting entire ships with his mind even very late into his life when his powers were waning.
In his prime, Yoda was capable of causing avalanches, could sense the thoughts of droids, and could control entire armies with telekinesis.
