Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Used by Obi-Wan Kenobi and other Guardians

Answer: blue

Lightsabers draw their energy from lightsaber crystals, also referred to as Focus crystals. These crystals come in various types, including gems, stones, and other objects, and resonate to create the blade of the saber, resulting in a wide spectrum of blade colours.

Blue lightsabers are emblematic of Jedi Guardians, particularly those who are known for their strong connection to the Force and their commitment to the Jedi Code. They have a long history in the Jedi Order, dating back to the Old Republic era. The original "Star Wars" film "A New Hope" (1977) features the first appearance of a blue lightsaber wielded by Obi-Wan Kenobi. Their presence extends across most episodes of the saga, including "Episode VII: The Force Awakens" (2015), where a blue lightsaber, which originally belonged to Anakin Skywalker and later to Luke Skywalker, plays a significant role in the film's plot.
2. Symbolic of the dark side and wielded by Sith and Dark Jedi

Answer: red

Red lightsabers are primarily associated with Sith and other dark side Force users. Sith are known for their embrace of the dark side of the Force, and this choice of red as their lightsaber colour symbolizes their connection to the dark side. Red lightsabers symbolize power, anger, aggression, and a willingness to use the Force for destructive purposes.

They appear in almost every movie of the "Star Wars" franchise and in various episodes of the animated series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and "Star Wars Rebels". Notable characters who have used red lightsabers are Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine (Darth Sidious) and Darth Maul, known for his double-bladed, red lightsaber.
3. Often used by Yoda and other Consulars

Answer: green

Green lightsabers are another iconic color of lightsabers in the "Star Wars" universe. They are associated with Jedi Consulars, one of the three primary Jedi classes. Consulars are known for their deep connection to the Force and their focus on diplomacy, knowledge, and mastering the Force's non-combative aspects.

Some notable Jedi who have wielded green lightsabers include Yoda, Qui-Gon Jinn, Luke Skywalker (in "Return of the Jedi"), and Ahsoka Tano (in "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" animated series).
4. Famously used by Mace Windu

Answer: purple

Purple lightsabers are distinctive and relatively rare in the "Star Wars" universe. The most famous wielder of a purple lightsaber is Mace Windu, a highly respected Jedi Master and member of the Jedi High Council. Purple lightsabers are often associated with a sense of balance between the light and dark sides of the Force. Mace Windu, in particular, is known for his mastery of both the light and dark aspects of the Force, which is reflected in the color of his lightsaber.

The primary episodes in which the purple lightsaber is featured are "Episode II: Attack of the Clones" (2002) where Mace Windu is seen using his purple lightsaber in several scenes, including the battle on Geonosis, and "Episode III: Revenge of the Sith" (2005) where Mace Windu uses it during his confrontation with Chancellor Palpatine (Darth Sidious).
5. Wielded by Jedi Temple Guards

Answer: yellow

Yellow lightsabers are also rare in the "Star Wars" universe but have their own unique significance. They are most closely associated with the Jedi Temple Guards, a specialized group within the Jedi Order responsible for protecting the Jedi Temple on Coruscant and maintaining its security. These guards are sometimes referred to as the "Guardians of the Jedi Temple."

Yellow lightsabers symbolize the Jedi Temple Guards' commitment to their duty and the Jedi Order. They are tasked with ensuring the safety of the temple and its archives, and the yellow color reflects their role as protectors.

Yellow lightsabers are not prominently featured in the "Star Wars" films but they do make appearances in other "Star Wars" media, such as animated series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" or "Star Wars Rebels" where the character known as the "Bendu" wields a unique double-bladed yellow lightsaber.
6. Signifies purification from the dark side, used by those who returned to the light

Answer: white

White lightsabers are typically associated with Jedi who have purified red lightsabers, signifying their return to the light side after being Sith or Dark Jedi. They are most famously associated with Ahsoka Tano, a former Jedi Padawan of Anakin Skywalker. After leaving the Jedi Order, Ahsoka Tano constructed two white lightsabers to symbolize her independence, neutrality and a sense of balance between the light and dark sides of the Force.

While white lightsabers may not appear in the live-action films, they have had a substantial presence in the broader "Star Wars" universe through animated series such as "Star Wars: The Clone Wars". Ahsoka Tano's white lightsabers first make their appearance in the final arc of Season 5, specifically in the episodes titled "Sabotage", "The Jedi Who Knew Too Much", "To Catch a Jedi" and "The Wrong Jedi".
7. The Darksaber, a symbol of Mandalorian leadership and culture

Answer: black

Black lightsabers, also known as Darksabers, are unique and mysterious weapons in the "Star Wars" universe. The Darksaber is an ancient and one-of-a-kind lightsaber with a flat, black blade tied to the Mandalorians, a warrior culture in the "Star Wars" universe. It was created by Tarre Vizsla, the first Mandalorian Jedi, over a thousand years before the events of the "Star Wars" films. It became a symbol of leadership and power among the Mandalorians. Notable characters who have possessed or wielded the Darksaber include Tarre Vizsla, Darth Maul, Sabine Wren, Bo-Katan Kryze, and Din Djarin.

The Darksaber makes its first appearance in the "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" animated series in Season 2, Episode 12, titled "The Mandalore Plot", and continues to be a significant element in various Mandalorian-centric story arcs throughout the series. It also plays a central role in "Star Wars Rebels", particularly in Season 3 where characters like Sabine Wren and Kanan Jarrus are seen wielding the Darksaber.
8. Used by Cal Kestis in "Fallen Order"

Answer: orange

Orange lightsabers appear in various "Star Wars" Expanded Universe materials, including books, comics, and video games such as "Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order" where it used by main character Cal Kestis, a young Jedi Padawan who survives the events of Order 66, the purge of the Jedi Order by the Galactic Empire.

His lightsaber begins as a blue-bladed weapon but later takes on an orange hue.
9. Used by Corran Horn and Maulkiller

Answer: silver

Corran Horn is a character in the "Star Wars Legends", created by author Michael A. Stackpole and first appeared in the novel "X-Wing: Rogue Squadron", published in 1996. Corran Horn developed his unique lightsaber combat style, known as the "Corran Horn Special", which combined elements of various traditional Jedi forms, making him a formidable duelist. He constructed his lightsaber after he became a Jedi Knight and used his Corellian heritage to create a unique lightsaber hilt design. The hilt was crafted from Phrik alloy, a rare and durable metal, and featured a silver-coloured blade.

"Maulkiller" is a character from the video game "Star Wars: The Force Unleashed", released in 2008. He is a Sith assassin who serves as the main antagonist in the bonus mission "Endor".
10. Rare colour, wielded by Lowbacca

Answer: bronze

Lowbacca's lightsaber made its debut in the 1996 novel "Young Jedi Knights: Lightsabers", co-authored by Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta. This book marked the moment when the four central characters of the series crafted their very first lightsabers. The bronze lightsaber was first seen on the cover of "Young Jedi Knights: Darkest Knight", also published in 1996.

Bronze lightsabers are a relatively rare lightsaber colour and are typically associated with unique or non-canon "Star Wars" material or fan-created content. They do not appear in the main "Star Wars" films.
