    Actually, the dual sided lightsaber is an incredibly stupid design, and it is a testament to Ray Park's skill that he could actually wield it with any effectiveness, even in a mock duel.

    No.

    Thus, refer to this simple inequation:

    Nihilus > Vader
    Well, by writer Fiat, Vader is the strongest by potential, as is Luke. They just haven't achieved that potential. Also, Didn't Nihilus need a device to help him crush the planets with the force?
    Hmm, very true... But potential is worthless unless it is had.

    And as for Nihilus needing a device to aid him in total annihilation of select planets, I am not certain as to if he did or did not need one. I do believe that he could only destroy certain planets, however, saying that they were "force-sensitive"... or something to that effect. I am a tad hazy...

    Hmmm...

    I'm pretty certain not. Might you be thinking of the Mass Shadow Generator that the Exile used to destroy Malachor V? If so, Nihilus didn't have it.

    Strictly speaking, Nihilus didn't "use the Force" to destroy planets either.

    He represented a void in the Force that he could use to his advantage by leaching/sucking the Force from his extended surroundings. I believe a "Force Vampire" is probably a good analogy, though on a massive scale. He destroyed planets by depriving them of the Force, which killed the life of those planets (and I believe leaving them as lifeless rocks in space as opposed to exploding them or ripping them apart--though I could be mistaken). This is also why the Exile was able to defeat him where any other Jedi could not, because the Exile himself was a void and channeled the Force through others as Nihilus did, so when the dark lord tried to channel the Force through the Exile he only weakened himself.

    Emperor Tenebrae/Vitiate/Valkorian is my serious answer. No other Sith has even come close. The only thing in the universe I can think of that was ever more powerful is Abeloth, but she wasn't a Darth.

    There was an EU story pre-Disney-retcons that had Exar Kun become some kind of all-powerful force ghost that took Luke and a handful of the other most powerful Jedi a long time to suppress, then ultimately "banish" or some other totally-not-a-death-analogue. I think I remember reading stuff about how he was the most powerful force user ever depicted at the time, but this was at least 15 years ago. Don't know how the atmosphere has changed since then. If we go by prequel midichlorian rules, then it would technically be Anakin as Vader, but only in terms of raw power and not skill, abilities, or general ruthlessness. Plus he lost a lot of his midichlorian count when his limbs were severed, despite ending up extremely powerful regardless.

    Revan still mah boi though

    Right? No Darthur? Missed opportunity.

    Also, I would also argue Revan. Tenebrae is god tier, and Revan is the one who was able to resist and mentally influence Tenebrae.

    Could they 1v1 in Halo? Probably not. But I think "powerful" can cover more than just raw output.
