Yoda's lightsaber was the personal shoto-style lightsaber of Yoda, the last Grand Master of the Jedi High Council. In keeping with its owner's stature, the green-bladed weapon had a shorter-than-average hilt and shorter blade, similar to a shoto.

What made Yoda's lightsaber unique was its scaled-down size.[1] Aside from that particularity, the weapon had a simple design, consisting of a studded chrome handle with black trim and an emitter shroud. It contained a kyber crystal that put forth a bright green plasma blade.[2]


Like many Jedi did for hundreds of years, Yoda built his lightsaber under the aegis of Professor Huyang,[6] an architect droid who had been with the Jedi Order since its nascent days.[7] As a first step, Yoda managed to acquire a kyber crystal from the icy caverns of Ilum, a mission that proved to be very eventful.[6]

The lightsaber was put to good use on Geonosis, when Yoda was forced to confront his former apprentice Darth Tyranus while the first battle of the Clone Wars was being fought outside.[8]

In the years of the Clone Wars, the green-bladed saber served its master well on multiple occasions.[1] However, Yoda eventually lost his weapon when he dueled the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Sidious in the Senate Building. When Sidious unleashed bolts of energy to disarm him, the Jedi Master lost his lightsaber, which fell to the ground below.[2]

After the rise of the new Galactic Empire, Grand Vizier Mas Amedda spoke to a gathering of citizens on Coruscant about the end of the Jedi Order and the supposed freedoms that the Empire would bring to the galaxy without the Jedi. He had a collection of lightsabers from fallen Jedi, including Yoda's lightsaber. These lightsabers were burned as part of the public demonstration, and their kyber crystals caused a large explosion of energy during the gathering.[3]
