Yoda's lightsaber was the weapon carried by Grand Master Yoda. It was shorter than a normal lightsaber to match Yoda's small stature, and had a green blade. He used this blade to perfect all styles of lightsaber combat, most notably Form IV: Ataru.

History Edit

Air yoda

Yoda wielding his lightsaber.

Yoda constructed this lightsaber as an apprentice under the instruction of the architect droid Huyang. It is possible Yoda did this onboard the Crucible after acquiring his crystal on Ilum. The Jedi Master used the lightsaber in numerous battles and skirmishes in the Clone Wars.

The lightsaber saw action in the First Battle of Geonosis against Count Dooku and also saw use on missions to Rugosa, Vjun, Ilum, Moraband, and Coruscant.

The Jedi Master lost his weapon when he engaged the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Sidious in a duel in the Senate Building in 19 BBY. When the Dark Lord used Force lightning to disarm him, Yoda lost the lightsaber which fell to the ground below, but he recovered the weapon, and kept it in a box in his hut on Dagobah while in his exile.

Behind the scenesEdit

This lightsaber was created for the Star Wars Episode I: The Visual Dictionary. It was later used by Yoda in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. The computer generated model of Yoda's lightsaber seen in the film differs slightly from the original model.[2]
