The Force was a universal energy field following through and around all life the galaxy that was manipulated by the Jedi, Sith orders and others like the Witches of Dathomir.

Known Abilities


Telekinesis, was a neutral ability that most Force-sensitives were able to develop. With it, a Force user could lift objects according to their will and concentration moving them in any direction. This ability was the basis for force pull, and force push, as well as telekinetic lightsaber combat techniques like the saber throw. One could argue that all these different abilities were simply the same power applied by different means.

Force Pull

The force pull ability allowed the user of telekinetically pull objects toward them, this might include weapons, objects, or even enemies themselves. This power was useful in disarming opponents but could also be used to incapacitate them by pulling toward the ground or into a conveniently located sink hole or chasm. In addition a lightsaber wielding caster might use this technique to bring an enemy into their saber range.

Force Push

Force Push was the ability to create a telekinetic impulse via the Force, launching a burst to move an object. The greater the user's telekinetic aptitude the stronger the effect and the heavier the target that could be manipulated.

This power was a useful tool for keeping enemies at a distance. A well timed force push could send a target crashing into a nearby wall or other object resulting in blunt force trauma and possible incapacitation. Projectiles like rockets could also be redirected using this technique. The force push could also cause direct damage, by striking an enemy in the form of a telekinetic fist which had the power of a pile driver causing potential damage to the target's internal organs. Beyond combat, this power had many useful applications, such as activating a control panel that would ordinarily have been out of reach, or removing heavy debris and other obstructions.

Force Wave

An advanced form of force push a force wave was a wave of telekinetic energy capable of knocking down multiple opponents. While force push concentrated on moving a single or small group of objects a force wave would toss anything it it's path into the air. This factor made the power useful for crowd control. Mace Windu demonstrated the potent affects of this technique in the battle of Dantooine where he threw dozens of droids across battlefield.

Force Repulse


Savage Opress unleashes a Force repulse numerous Battle Droids.

An extremely powerful telekinetic Force power like force push but on a far larger scale, akin to that of force wave, force repulse was known to gather loose objects, even enemies and blast them away at high speeds. Not entirely different from a coast tsunami where tide levels would drop drastically, in this case this corresponds to the objects being pulled in toward the caster, and then would be sent out at great force. In simplest terms the force repulse was a force wave that went out in all directions simultaneously as opposed to just one.

Sensory Related


Telepathy was the very basic ability to mentally communicate over small or vast distances with other individuals.The range of telepathy itself was theoretically infinite, but the telepath must be able to sense the presences of those they wish to contact. Thus, communicating with non-Force-sensitives became nearly impossible over distances greater than a handful of kilometers, and the typical upper limit for Force-sensitives was approximately 1,000 kilometers however it was possible for individuals to maintain a telepathic bond from across the galaxy.



Mace Windu uses Shatterpoint to free a wounded Clone pilot.

Shatterpoint was loosely defined as being able to use the force to see weaknesses both in events and in objects. When applied to physical items the shatter point ability allowed a user to perceive the tiny flaws within the object allowing them to apply force at its most vulnerable point. The application of this force would effectively shatter the object into pieces. Thus this power allowed a user to destroy materials which were nearly physically indestructible with minimal effort.



Quinlan Vos employs his Psychometry skills to track Ziro the Hutt.

The ability to draw information using the Force purely through tactile contact. Users of psychometry could draw visions of events past and future as well read emotional energies placed on an object. In short psychometry allowed a user to perceive features of the people and the environment around an object. Jedi Master Quinlan Vos was talented individual in the realm of psychometry in part due to his Kiffar, a humanoid subspecies with a natural ability to use the aforementioned technique, heritage. Vos used this ability in the hunt for Ziro the Hutt, applying his psychometric talents on a Nal Hutta to learn that Ziro was being held by the Hutt Council simply by touching a cup.


Users of the Force were able to see future events through their access and connection to the Force. This future sight allowed them to see not only the movements of their enemies in battle but much larger events that could affect the entire galaxy. Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas was reputed to be a talented seer it was thought that his Force premonitions of impending doom lead him to secretly create the Grand Army of the Republic on Kamino. Pong Krell claimed that he had a premonition which foretold of the end of the Jedi Order and the Republic, this vision subsequently lead Krell to betray the Republic at the Battle of Umbara. When Ahsoka Tano had a troubling vision of Senator Padme Amidala being attacked while speaking at a summit, Tano decided to accompany Amidala to the event where she succeeded in thwarting a plot by Aurra Sing.

Battle Meditation

Battle Meditation was the rare and potent technique that was often used by force users, namely Jedi, on the galactic battlefield to direct and inspire armies of soldiers. This power which dates back to some of the earliest days of the Republic like the Exar Kun War or Jedi Civil War that allowed powerful Jedi to turn the tide of great battles by boosting their troops while simultaneously weakening enemies. During the Clone Wars the exact details of the technique were largely lost to time however beings like Grand Master Yoda or Oppo Rancisis were known to be adept at its usage.

Physical Enhancement


Both Jedi and Sith were shown throughout the Clone Wars to be able to heal injuries by calling on the force. This often involved going into a long, deep trance for an extended period of time. Asajj Ventress was noted as being particularly talent with this technique which most believe was how she survived many of her vicious encounters with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker like she did on Yavin 4 where she fell from a temple mount all the way down so far that most assumed she could never have survived.

Force Speed

Force Speed was basic application of the force used to increase the speed at which a user could move. This technique aided those proficient in its use to run many times their natural physical limit, perform quick attacks and flourishes with a lightsaber, and dodge to avoid enemy attack. Mace Windu would demonstrate allow of the following in the Battle of Dantooine, as would Obi-Wan Kenobi, Kit Fisto, Ahsoka Tano and numerous others at points during the war.

Force Jump

A force jump or force leap was a jump augmented by the force allowing the user to hop a much greater distance than their ordinary physiology would allow. This technique was useful for evasive moves on the battlefield and in the acrobatics necessary for the Ataru saber form and infiltration. A relatively basic ability taught to virtually all force users and demonstrated by everyone from Grand Master Yoda to Asajj Ventress and Ahsoka Tano.

Dark Side Applications

Force Lightning

Force Lightning

Dooku, a powerful Sith Lord uses two-handed lightning.

Force Lightning was a Dark Side fueled force ability in which a user channeled their aggressive intentions into deadly bolts of electric current. The lightning most often emitted from the hands could leap out from the user's fingertips and cause significant damage to both organic and nonliving targets. These bolts depending on the aptitude of the caster was known to branch out in forks allowing the user to target multiple enemies at once.

The devastating effects of the lightning was obvious causing seizures, burns, and severe pain on those who were unlucky enough to be targeted. Extremely talented force lightning adepts could control the intensity of their bolts allowing them to kill a target with a single touch of this force energy or simply use it to cause physical pain. Count Dooku was known to use the latter on Savage Opress during his training as a form of "motivation". Although force lightning was traditionally associated with the Sith Lords there was a potential for this ability or at least knowledge surrounding this technique to be used by Jedi. Master Plo Koon was one of the only known individuals to do that calling his version "Electric Judgement".

Force Choke

Force Choke

choking Anakin and Obi-Wan.

A telekinetic application of the Force often to intimidate or punish those who the user might feel should be shown a lesson. The force choke ability involved using the Force of clutch the throat of a living being often raising them off the ground thus restricting their field of motion. To maintain a force choke it was vital that the user did not lose focus or else the intended or targets would be freed from the caster's grasp. Force choke's effectiveness came from the fact that once an individual was ensnared they could not move without risking harm to their airway.

Nightsister Magic

The dark side aligned witches of Dathomir known as the Nightsisters were able to use a unique culturally influenced system to manipulate the force. The sisters unlike Jedi or Sith would use specific phrases and or objects to control the force where as the aforementioned groups simply used their own emotions and thoughts as the to focus their force abilities. Using magic spells and rituals the Nightsisters have been seen to able to manipulate the corpses of their fallen and use them as an undead army. The elder Nightsister Daka was able to raise and control dozens of undead warriors simultaneously during the Battle of Dathomir against the CIS droid forces. Clan Mother Talzin was shown to be able to inflict deadly curses on individuals across the galaxy using something which once belonged to the target as she did with Count Dooku's hair also during the Battle of Dathomir. Talzin could seemingly apparate out of nowhere through a portal or perhaps an illusion of green mist and dark side energies. The green mist in particular could in fact could be seen in nearly every instance of Nightsister magic and was identified at least by Count Dooku as the primary sign of their craft.

These witches in addition to being deadly alone appeared to be even more dangerous in groups and were capable of amazing feats of physical transformation being able to turn Savage Opress into a fleashed out weapon of the dark side or making Ventress, Na'leth, and Karis invisible during their assassination attempt on Count Dooku.

Force Camouflage and Stealth

This masking techique was a commonly seen power of many darksiders. In short force stealth involved the user cloaking themselves from others like Jedi with the force. This cloak allowed them to remain undected as Palpatine did as Supreme Chancellor. The individual would could use the Force to hide one's actions or whereabouts allowing a user to go undetected when needed. The caster might do this by affecting the ripples and changes in the Force that their actions caused and using this knowledge to manipulate it to their benefit as was the case with Palpatine. It should be noted by the Clone Wars period many of the masters of the Force Stealth technique were adepts of the Dark Side however the ability in itself did not require the user to draw upon the Dark Side and thus could be used by Jedi. Master Quinlan Vos was known to use this skill on his numerous espionage missions but one should also note that Vos' mission was to infiltrate the C.I.S. as a Dark Acolyte, a testament to the power's inexplicable link to the Sith.
