List Rules Vote up your favorite Sith Lords.

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, some of the coolest sci-fi villains have been Sith Lords. With great power comes great responsibility, but these baddies have turned away from the light to embrace the power of the Darkside. That’s right - we’re ranking the greatest Sith characters, old and new, in the Star Wars universe.

While the Star Wars films (which are now on Disney+) have had their ups and downs over the years, not to mention their share of dud characters, what's undeniable is that the majority of these characters are iconic fan favorites. Whether you're all for their dark use of the Force or you love seeing these maniacal masters defeated by the Jedis, the most famous Sith characters are usually great villains that are worthy opponents for the heroes of the galaxy.

There are some great characters on this list like Asajj Ventress who was first introduced during The Clone Wars and Snoke who leads the First Order.

So get your lightsabers ready and vote up the best Sith characters in the Star Wars universe. It doesn't matter if they are masters or apprentices, vote up all your Sith favorites and help them get closer to the top of the list.
