You’ve learned the ways of the Force and it’s time to put your midichlorians to use and enter the fray … but what color is your lightsaber?

Padawan, the force is strong with you — the battle between the light side and the dark side of the force is upon us, and it’s time to choose the hue of your Jedi weapon. The weapon of a true Jedi is the lightsaber. A lightsaber is a powerful weapon consisting of a combination of rare crystals, machine parts, and force energy. The color of a Jedi’s blade says much about its wielder, and it reflects office, approach, and style — choose wisely. 

Do you choose ...

Blue Blade

This is the blade signifying a Jedi Guardian — a skilled warrior who fights for the light side of the force. The wielder of a blue bladed lightsaber is one who fights for justice and protects the weak. 

Green Blade

A green bladed lightsaber indicates that of a Jedi Consular — a Jedi of high office who prefers peace to combat but is willing to use their considerable fighting skills and mastery of the force to achieve the peace if necessary.

Red Blade

A red bladed lightsaber is fueled by synthetic crystals and holds innate offensive strength. Powered by the dark side of the force, a red bladed lightsaber indicates that the wielder is a Sith or a dark Jedi. 

Yellow Blade

A lightsaber with a yellow blade indicates the wielder is a Jedi Sentinel — a Jedi who is balanced by both scholarly pursuits and technical combat skills.

Purple Blade

The purple blade is rare and signifies the wielder as one of moral ambiguity — the Jedi who use a purple blade often channel energy from both the light side and dark side of the force and display an aggressive style of combat. 

Orange Blade

8

An orange bladed lightsaber is a symbol of unparalleled strength. The wielder of an orange bladed lightsaber is a powerful Jedi.

White Blade

The white bladed lightsaber is the weapon of an Imperial Knight. The white blade indicates the wielder’s dedication to the higher purpose and commitment to serving a greater cause. 

Black Blade

The black bladed lightsaber — or “darksaber” — is an indication of all-absorbing self obsession.
