16. Kylo Ren
In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we get a look at where Kylo Ren’s anger comes from. His own uncle tried to kill him out of fear but failed. Kylo then held a huge amount of resentment towards his entire family. Eventually, it led to him killing his own father.
While I think Kylo Ren is a perfectly capable fighter, his rage doesn’t always make him a graceful one. He lashes out and at times it came across as more of a childlike tantrum than it did as purposefully directed anger. As far as how powerful he is, he probably could be a few spots higher on this list if that were the main thing we were looking at.
Kylo Ren and Rey end up teaming up against the Praetorian Guard in The Last Jedi. When Kylo loses his lightsaber, he struggles a bit, needing an assist from Rey. While he was trained briefly by Luke, he doesn’t seem like he yet has the fluidity down that many of the great fighters on this list do. The fight against the guards is a pretty messy one, but don’t get me wrong, it’s still a good fight as far as advancing the story goes.
There’s clearly a lot more for Kylo to work on if he wants to become one of the best fighters in the galaxy.
