I am wondering, why is Jaden Korr an unpopular hero of the New Jedi Order, and why is he still a
Jedi Knight, and would he look good with a single blue lightsaber?
One: he only had one appearance, Two: Please sign your postsJediBob 21:31, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

Everybody has their own opinion. Maybe fans just don't like him.Vau 20:38, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
I disagree that having one appearance is the reason why Jaden is unpopular. Revan's only appearance was in a game (KOTOR) and yet he is a fairly popular character with fans and plays a huge role in Darth Bane: Path of Destruction and KOTOR II (through his legacy, anyway) as well as the comics. So if they both only appeared in one game, why is Jaden less popular with fans than Revan? Here's what I think:
Jaden didn't do anything really significant. Sure, he stopped Ragnos from being resurrected, but anybody could have done that. By contrast, Revan brought the galaxy to its knees as a Sith lord and destroyed the Star Forge, which only he really could have done. I think many fans see Jaden as less significant of a character.
Jaden's appearance, race, and gender are entirely up in the air. Revan's gender is canonized as male his Sith outfit easily gets by the fact that his appearance is ambiguous. As the Darth Bane novel showed, it is possible to describe Revan. Imagine the nightmare of trying to describe Jaden in a book without cannonizing anything.
Most fans agree that Revan was pretty awesome as was Kyle Katarn. That's why they both appear in later works. Jaden just doesn't compare to their awesomeness.
Again, this is all just my speculation on the matter. Thunderforge 02:12, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
-Jaden Korr's race is not canon, but he is male. This was canonized in The New Essentials Chronology.
-Revan has also appeared in the KOTOR comics. He's The Revanchist, as established in the Essentials Guide to the Force.
I think it was also partially that Jaden was just a padawan for most of his important career. Yes, he was a knight when he defeated Ragnos, but most of the big things he did was when he was an apprentice. He would be so much cooler a character if he made like one appearance as a Knight, participating in something cool. After all, he would have been in his thirties during the Yuuzhan Vong War. Like if he fought alongside Kyp Durron in the Dozen. Taral, Dark Lord of the Sith 02:30, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
A person on KCM Files-Jaden Korr? quoted "By the end of the game Luke gave him the rank of Master...", but in the game, Luke says that Jaden had become a true Jedi. Give me your opinions on this. Thanks.Musclebob BuffPants 18:03, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
Just to not confuse you, I found out that Luke told Jaden Korr that he was a true Jedi Knight.
I also know that Jaden Korr is a Jedi Knight up to 40 ABY, but I am wondering, as a Jaden Korr fan, when does he get the Rank of Master?Musclebob BuffPants 19:51, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
Sorry to argue about this, but I want to know that if Jaden was elevated to Master as the KCM quote I put on here before said, then why isn't he listed as a master? Please think about it for a second.Musclebob BuffPants 02:54, 28 February 2008 (UTC)
What's KCM Files? If it's not an official LucasFilm-licensed source, then it doesn't matter if it says Jadem was a master. Sounds to me like some random person on the Internet just had the wrong information. It happens sometimes. -- SM-716talk? 22:36, 28 February 2008 (UTC)
Sorry. It's KMC Forums (Killer Movies Community). And thank you for your answer.Musclebob BuffPants 05:12, 29 February 2008 (UTC)
