10 Star Wars Characters Who Could Defeat Rey

Rey Skywalker was an interesting character to center the Star Wars sequel trilogy around because of her strong connection to the Force and the way she was able to learn how to pilot the Millennium Falcon so quickly. That doesn’t mean she’s the strongest Jedi audiences have ever seen. Despite her lineage as being Emperor Palpatine’s granddaughter, Rey was undisciplined as a Jedi, and the sequels never truly allowed her the time to develop her connection to the Force and the ability to wield a lightsaber.
This all could change with Rey’s upcoming New Jedi Order film, which is set to take place fifteen years after the events of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. In those years, Rey should have the time to further develop as a Jedi to the point where she feels ready to start teaching others. Despite this, based on where audiences left Rey in The Rise of Skywalker she is not an all-around threat. Here are 10 Force users and non-Force sensitive people who could beat Rey in certain situations.
11 Luke Skywalker Like Rey, Luke Skywalker was always destined to use the Force. Luke’s parentage meant that he was strong with the Force and allowed him to become a better fighter and pilot. In a fight, Luke would likely be able to rival Rey in most aspects. When Rey trained with Luke in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it was clear that she was very inexperienced in wielding a lightsaber and that if Luke wanted to, he could have defeated her. That, coupled with Luke’s appearance in The Mandalorian season 2 finale, which highlighted how much he had grown since the original trilogy in wielding a lightsaber, shows that Luke could best Rey in a lightsaber battle.
Additionally, Luke inherited his father Anakin’s skills as a pilot. In addition to being the one who destroyed the first Death Star, Luke’s ability to adapt to changing circumstances highlights that his true power is versatility. While his arc in the sequel trilogy may not have been what many were expecting, he still shows that he can adapt and change when Rey comes to Ahch-To. Luke reconsiders his priorities, even if it’s not something he wanted to do. Rey, on the other hand, was at the start of her journey in the sequels and experienced a lot of loss in a short period, meaning that she had little time to adapt to her new circumstances.
10 Anakin Skywalker The Jedi Knight-turned-Sith Lord was one of the strongest Force wielders in all of Star Wars. Not only did Anakin dominate and have a strong connection to the Force, but he was also an expert lightsaber user. The prequel trilogy and Star Wars: The Clone Wars highlighted how confident Anakin was in his ability to beat someone in combat, and rightfully so. That, combined with Anakin’s creativity when it came to piloting, made him a cunning warrior. After Anakin turned to the dark side and became Darth Vader, he became arguably an even greater threat.
While Rey and Anakin never got the chance to meet, they have some similar qualities. Both of them come from desert planets where they had nothing and then became Jedi. The one thing that Anakin has that would spell Rey’s defeat would be his experience. Anakin studied under Obi-Wan Kenobi for a decade before becoming a general in the Grand Army of the Republic, then spent 20 years as a Sith Lord. Rey had about a year to learn and refine her powers as a Jedi. In this way, Anakin had the time to master his craft, both as a Force user and a pilot.
9 Palpatine Rey’s grandfather was one of the most powerful beings in the galaxy, and if he had been at full might during The Rise of Skywalker, Rey may not have had the strength to defeat him. Palpatine was 119 years old when he faced off against Rey in The Rise of Skywalker and was looking to use her to restore his body. This shows that even though they were fighting on one of the oldest Sith planets, Exegol, he wasn’t as strong as he had been in the original or prequel trilogies.
During the Battle of Exegol, Rey turned to the Jedi past for guidance and help in defeating Palpatine, while he thought he could take her down by himself, even if he was depowered. While Rey was able to defeat him, it was still close, and it’s unclear if she would’ve been able to do so if the past Jedi hadn’t connected with her. It’s worth noting that in Rey’s upcoming New Jedi Order film, her power will have likely grown in the years since the Battle of Exegol. While it’s still unclear if she could defeat Palpatine if he ever came back (again), as of The Rise of Skywalker, he likely would’ve defeated her if he was at full power.
8 Ahsoka Tano The Jedi Padawan to Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano is one of the most interesting characters in all of Star Wars whose story is still unfolding. After leaving the Jedi Order in The Clone Wars season 5, Ahsoka would go on to find her own way in the galaxy. First an Order 66 survivor and then a rebel informant, Ahsoka has worn many different hats. Ahsoka wields twin white lightsabers, which represents her non-alignment with either the Jedi or Sith. She has a special connection to the Force, because of her revival by the Daughter on Mortis and her and Ezra Bridger’s experience in the World Between Worlds.
Because of Ahsoka’s diverse experiences, she is resilient and knows the pitfalls of the dark side, as she had seen how it had corrupted her former master. While Ahsoka has strong ties to the light side of the Force because of the Daughter, Rey through her grandfather has a powerful bond with the dark side. Though Rey is successful at fighting off the dark side, she is constantly tempted. Rey was constantly trying to get through to Kylo Ren and bring him back to the light, but that in turn brought often drew her towards the dark.
