The lightsaber pike was a lightsaber variant similar to the double-bladed lightsaber, featuring two rare yellow plasma blades on each side of the staff, that was used by the Jedi Temple Guard.

DescriptionEdit

The lightsaber pike was a thick, imposing lightsaber variant[2] similar in design to the double-bladed lightsaber;[1] a folding,[4] staff-shaped weapon[1] that featured two rare and distinctive yellow plasma blades projecting from either end,[2] though it was possible to only use one blade at a time.

HistoryEdit

Lightsaber pikes were used by the Jedi Temple Guards, Knights of the Jedi Order who were sworn to protect the Jedi Temple on Coruscant.[2] During the Clone Wars, they were used during Ahsoka Tano's Jedi trial to keep Anakin Skywalker restrained after the Council's decision. Later, they were used to isolate the duel between Anakin and Padawan Baris Offee, and escort her to the Republic military base.[3]

Several years after the Clone Wars, a vision of Jedi Temple Guards- and with them, lightsaber pikes- appeared to Kanan Jarrus and the Fifth Brother and Seventh Sister.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

The lightsaber pike first appeared in The Force Unleashed, a Star Wars Legends novel written by Sean Williams[5] that was released on August 19, 2008[6] as part of the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed multimedia project.[7]

In the planning stages of "The Wrong Jedi," the lightsaber pikes carried by the Jedi Temple Guards were originally to have green blades. However, they later became yellow, making them the first lightsabers to canonically have a yellow blade.[8]

A single-bladed lightsaber pike dubbed the "Sith lightsaber pike" was designed[9] for use by Darth Bane in "Sacrifice,"[10] the thirteenth episode of the canon animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' sixth and final season, though it didn't appear in the episode's final cut.[11] This version of the weapon bore a greater resemblance to the lightsaber pike as depicted in the non-canon Legends continuity.[12]
