What’s up with all the different lightsabers? Luckily for you, we know which colors are used by which kinds of folks, what they say about the wielder’s personality, and whether or not a yellow lightsaber makes sense for you. Here’s the true meaning behind each lightsaber color.
The blue lightsaber is a classic for a reason. It’s the iconic first lightsaber seen being activated on screen in A New Hope, and since both Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi had one, it seems like the standard issue for the Jedi Knights.
Back in the day, a long time before “a long time ago,” it was established that a blue lightsaber meant the user was a Jedi Guardian, the samurai of the Jedi order. With their training focused on outer space martial arts and lightsaber tomfoolery, Guardians were warrior monks whose arrival heralded a hasty round of limb removal. Especially if they had the higher ground.
So what does this mean about the person behind the lightsaber? Mainly that they could be a little more of a soldier than your average Jedi, with the blue saber functioning as their uniform. Keep watching the video to find out the true meaning of each lightsaber color.
