Darth Maul was one of the most interesting and well-developed characters in the Star Wars saga. After being rescued by his brother and living on for decades, Maul reveals his true colours for the first time after abandoning his Sith ways. As a leader, he was fantastic and terrible, his hatred and rage propelling him to great lengths; he was the epitome of a badass Sith Lord.

7. Darth Malak

In Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, which was released in 2003, Darth Malak made his debut appearance. The extreme brutality and pure evil demeanour of Darth Malak aren’t extremely impressive, but the way he relates to Darth Revan and contrasts all that a light-side player strives for in the game renders him a fantastic villain.

Malak was a former Jedi Knight who was trained by Revan before both of them turned to the Evil Side. At the time of the Jedi Civil War, Darth Malak ruled as a Sith Lord. His wrath and rage drove him to incredible extremes, making him the ideal of a ferocious Sith Lord; he was amazing and horrible in his role as a Sith lord.

8. Darth Malgus

The malevolent Darth Malgus is an invented character from the Star Wars saga. Malgus first appeared in the video game “The Old Republic”. Darth Malgus’s unique character made him stand out among other Sith.

He was a formidable Sith who served during the time of the Old Republic. Darth Malgus was a powerful Sith Lord during the interwar period between the 2nd and 3rd Galactic Wars. Even though the Sith of his day considered alien assassins to be traitors, he was a formidable battlefield combatant who frequently utilised them to carry out his commands.

Darth Malgus blamed the Force for all of the fighting in the galaxy. Darth Malgus was very in tune with the Force and adept at employing telekinesis to move objects or exert his will on others. Darth Malgus was tremendously powerful, and he was capable of amplifying the force of his lightsaber strikes to inconceivable lengths by virtue of his immense strength.

9. Darth Plagueis

Introduced in Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith, Darth Plagueis was one of the most terrible Sith Lords. How the dark lord learns to control the midi-chlorians inside him and achieve eternity is central to his storyline in Star wars Series. Plagueis had a strong connection to the Force and could use it to heal wounds and even use midichlorians to generate new life.

It was Darth Plagueis  who was responsible for the rise of the Sith Empire. Plagueis’s abnormal ability was the key that opened the door to Anakin’s deepest phobias and ultimately led him to the Evil Side. He is credited for training Darth Sidious in the path of the Force, polishing Sidious’ political education to perfection, and being such a Force master that he supposedly prevented deaths.

The Dark Lord taught Darth Sidious everything he knew, even the secret to eternal life. After Sidious completed his training and found a protégé of his own, he was bound by the Rule of Two. As a result, Darth Sidious killed his lord while he was sleeping. His demise is clearly documented, but the extent of his mastery is such that even now there are persistent claims that he is still alive and influencing cosmic events.

10. Darth Tyrannus

Perhaps the most underappreciated Dark Lord of Sith in Star Wars is Darth Tyrannus, popularly known by his formal name, Count Dooku. He was the primary antagonist in Episode II: Attack of the Clones, a supporting villain in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and the primary antagonist in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

He was formerly a revered Jedi Master, but he turned to the evil side and became Darth Sidious’s second apprentice. He established the Confederacy of Independent Systems, rose to the position of political chief for the Separatist Alliance, and was the person responsible for starting the Clone Wars.

In order to better suit his combat style, Count Dooku fashioned a sleek lightsaber. Count Dooku’s red-bladed lightsaber was an elegant weapon. Dooku failed to hit Jedi warrior Anakin Skywalker with his Sith lightsaber during their battle on the starship Invisible Hand. Skywalker ended Dooku’s life by cutting off his head with his own blade.
