Star Wars: Ranking the 10 best lightsaber battles

9 of 11

3. Yoda and Anakin and Obi-Wan Kenobi vs. Count Dooku (Episode II)

Who knew Count Dooku had all these lightsaber skills for a period of time? Anakin and Obi-Wan were no match for the apprentice Sith Lord, who reveals his Force Lightning powers in the duel.

Anakin loses his right arm in the duel and Obi-Wan is injured in the fight. It seems like Dooku has the battle won and is about to execute the two Jedi until Yoda arrives.

Yoda and Dooku engage in easily one of the best lightsaber battles we’ve ever seen. The advancement in technology between Episode I and Episode II make it that much better.

In the end, Yoda is too much for Count Dooku, who is forced to use some trickery to escape. He tries to bring down a stone column onto the injured Anakin and Obi-Wan. Yoda, of course, uses the Force to save them, which gives Count Dooku just enough time to escape.
