Have you ever wondered which Jedi is really strongest with the Force, who wielded their lightsaber the most, or which character lost the most limbs?

This includes total Dark Side followers killed, Force uses, lightsaber battles and the number of alien species, along with the featured vehicles, droid models, limbs lost and much more.
