Top 10 most impressive force feats in the new canon continuity

What are your top 10? Include anything you want; doesn't have to be combative related. Make note if you take into consideration environmental factors/nexuses/oneness/amps/etc



My list (might be missing a few I'm not thinking of)

1. Anakin dominating the Son and Daughter of Mortis (despite using a nexus I find it the most impressive because Anakin was the only one who could do it)
2/3 Oneness Kanan
3/2 Yoda's mountain feat (relied on some sort of environmental factor that wouldn't have allowed him to replicate it under ordinary conditions; not sure whether to put it above oneness Kanan)
4. *Plagueis manipulating the midichlorians* (asterisks b/c we don't know if Sheev was lying)
5. Rey's boulder feat (simply because how easily/casually she did it)
6. Sidious's ability to ragdoll Savage, Maul, and Dooku without visible difficulty
7. Yoda absorbing Sidious's lightning(?)
8. Inquisitors holding back a shuttle (could get booted off if someone convinces me that a shuttle's thrust is not as strong as one might think)
9. Talzin's self-levitation and bubble shield/lightning (assuming this relies on the force to some degree)
10. Savage's ability to ragdoll Dooku and Ventress purely telekinetically, and then do it again to Kenobi and Anakin through physical augmentation (impressive when considering Savage's lack-luster feats up until that point)
11[to compensate for #4]. Sidious's and Dooku's sith sorcery in TCW (could be higher, but we don't really know how impressive this is in canon. Still pretty cool considering how they were able to look into the future)

The fact that Vader isn't even on this list means I can dismiss it out of hand, tbh.

The only thing I can think of is the AT AT feat which isn't that impressive IMO. It's a 4-legged stucture; he was only holding-back the force exerted its leg-motors, not the entire weight of the thing.

That's actually kind of dumb, but not really pertinent to the point either. Especially when you put the Inquisitor's holding back a shuttle.

Then it should be easy to tear apart, right? Go ahead.

Maul surviving Naboo is more impressive than most of those feats.

Vader withstanding the explosion of Cymoon 1 is better than anything Anakin, Dooku, and Savage ever did

Vader doing the exact same thing?
Vader doing the exact same thing with a freighter?
Vader surviving Malachor?
You acting like an AT-AT is less impressive than a shuttle is also kind of stupid.

Could go on, but really shouldn't have to.

If Sidious is the Senate and he fights in the Senate. Does that mean he fvcks himself?

Vader's durability can be attributed to his suit more than anything. Visual guides state that his body-glove was blast-dampening and insulated him from fire, explosions, hell it was even lightsaber resistant. If R2-D2 was able to survive this , it would be surprising if Vader didn't survive Malanchor or Cymoon.

Look at the scan. All he does is hold-back a single leg of the AT AT. There is no weight transfer involved; the only force being held back is that of the drive-motors in the "knee" joint and where it attaches to the body. Definitely nothing special.

What is a bit more impressive, due to how it's executed but not in magnitude, is when he "tears" apart the machine. Notice how he only targets the vulnerable spots of the AT AT; the joints and where the cabin connects to the body. It's not like he's outright crushing it or causing it to explode. This shows that Vader was refined and precise enough to direct his power to multiple points, but at the end of the day it's not anymore impressive than Dooku spreading out his telekinesis to simultaneously lift multiple obelisks.

I'm trying to find sources that state how powerful a shuttle's thrust is; like I said in OP, I'm open to booting that feat if it's debunked.

^ In the preceding scan, Han states "Wait... Why aren't we moving!?":

...Implying that Vader was stopping the entire AT-AT.


Additionally, the very first panel of the scan you posted depicts the entire AT-AT 'trembling'(which is often how the Force is depicted in comics):

This is further indicative of Vader using his TK to stop/hold the entire machine -- not just a single one of its legs.

Ah, yes. Thatís a good one. Bendu came off as incredibly powerful. A literal force of nature greater than any Sith or Jedi.
