The best single weapon in the history of cinema. Utilised in the star wars films, lightsabers (or sabres - if you're UK) consist of a handle (like a flashlight tube) and emit a brilliant lazerbeam like shaft of colour. The traditional colours of the blade are green or blue for Jedi (goodies) or red for the baddies - the Sith. The exceptions are Mace Windu played by Samuel L Jackson who has a purple one because Jackson wanted to look cooler than everyone else. And General Grevious who weilded stolen Jedi sabres. Also in Revenge of the Sith Darth Vader still uses his Jedi blue sabre - though he switches to red in the time between episodes III & IV.
Lightsabres are able to cut through anything, apart from the blade of another sabre. Because of this it's an ideal 1v1 weapon for close combat. These duels are the highlights of the Star Wars films. Here, in order are the sabrefights;
EP1: Qui gon jinn & Obi wan Kenobi destroy droids.

Luke surrenders to Daddy and shows him his new lightsabre. Vader responds by taking him to the Emperor
Luke V Vader (one) After being goaded into taking his sabre, Luke attemts to kill the emperor but his daddy's blade blocks his. With his soppyness fully restored, Luke decides it's wrong to fight his father. Vader responds by hurling his sabre vaguely in Lukes direction - missing too.
Luke V Vader (two) Realising Vader knows he has a sister, Luke grows a set and charges Vader, he beats him down and holds him there his sabre pointed at his throat. Emperor Palpatine electrocutes Luke after Luke throws his Sabre away (silly boy) Vader becomes good and throws the nasty man down a tube YAY.
"Your father's light saber, the weapon of a Jedi Knight. A graceful weapon from a more civilised age. Not as random or clumsy as a blaster." Obi Wan Kenobi presenting Luke with his father's sabre.
A Jedi Knights weapon of choice the Light Saber is less clumbsy than a blaster, and is more of a symbol of honor, and wisdom than a weapon. A Light Saber\'s color depends upon the type of crystal put into the hilt during its building, and the crystal really depends on the Jedi\'s personality, and their particular alliance. Jedi\'s (the good guys) usually have stoic colors or softer colors which give off a prescence of being good such as blue, green, yellow, purple, etc. The Sith (the bad guys) more or less stick with one dominant color that gives off a presence of evil, red, dark red, crimson, take your pick. In closing Light Sabers kick ass, and I wish the government would go public with their mass production of the powerful sabers....Oh come on, we all know that its true...
When Light Sabers are finally made in real life we will Ironically downgrade our fighting style to sword fighting while our weapons greatly upgrade technilogically....I hope.
A lightsaber is an amazing and versatile eweapon that is used by a Jedi.In comparison to these, blasters are pathetic.To carry a lightsaber is an example of incredible skill. The blade of a lightsabre can cut through almost anything, except the blade of another one.
They are the best weapons in the universe basically.
Anakin:When I got there we went into aggresive negotiations..
Padme: Aggresive negotiations? What's that?
Anakin: Well, negotiations, with a light saber.
a low caloric saber (this joke was used in Robot Chicken:Star Wars Special)
your mama's so stupid she eats light sabers for breakfast
A terrible weapon Lockheed Martin is developing in case of war against France. Unfortunately the huge amount of light sabers produced might drive the United States to the third Bush administration.
