Best Moment

It’s hard to pick out a best moments or a guy we didn’t really see much of, but there is a bit of a bittersweet moment for Ki-Adi when it comes to when he was at his best. Back in Episode I, Ki-Adi was among those Jedi on the Council who believed that Anakin Skywalker shouldn’t be allowed to be trained as a Jedi. Considering Anakin brought about the purge that killed Ki-Adi, this bit of wisdom was spot on.

Worst Moment

Well, dying wasn’t really his crowning achievement or his shining moment. Ki-Adi wasn’t the only Jedi to have been completely blindsided by the Great Jedi Purge, but at the same time you can’t be too proud that one of the members of the Council was taken by complete and utter surprise by the whole situation. Ki-Adi might be powerful but he wasn’t as great as we might have thought.


Ki-Adi Mundi was one of the background characters who never really got enough screen time for us to be emotional invested in him. He was part of the Council decisions, but at the same time we never someone that we were invested in beyond the fact that he was part of the Jedi.
