The Mace Windu lightsaber was a Jedi weapon built by the Jedi Master Mace Windu after his appointment as the senior member for the Jedi High Council. This lightsaber is considered one of the most distinctive of its kind in the Jedi Order due to its amethyst plasma blade. Windu would carry the lightsaber into battle on several occasions during the Clone Wars. He used this lightsaber to serve as the Jedi General of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. Ultimately, the Mace Windu lightsaber was lost during a fight between the Sith Lord Darth Sidious and Windu.
Mace Windu Lightsaber Appearance
The true reason for the appearance of the Mace Windu lightsaber is that Samuel L. Jackson, a famous actor, wanted to wield a purple lightsaber. The purple lightsaber ended up stirring a lot of talk in the fandom. Samuel L. Jackson realized that the final battle would involve many characters fighting each other. Therefore, he asked George Lucas to make the lightsaber of Windu purple to make him stand out. Initially, Lucas refused the idea of giving Windu a purple lightsaber and told the actor lightsabers only came in red, green, or blue. Eventually, the director accepted Jackson’s idea and revealed to him during reshoots on Attack of the Clones that Windu had a purple lightsaber.
Besides the purple lightsaber, another characteristic of Mace Windu that distinguishes him from other characters is that he uses Form VII saber combat, which is an aggressive fighting style often used by dark-side characters. This in turn makes the Mace Windu lightsaber even more distinctive in the Star Wars universe.
The distinctive color of the lightsaber is intended to serve as a warning to enemies that the greatest champion of the Jedi Order was ready to battle. Windu constructed this weapon to serve as his final lightsaber. He used his many years of experience and materials of the highest quality to make this weapon. The handgrip is specially designed and the electrum finish of the lightsaber indicates the status of Windu as the Jedi High Council’s senior member.
The Mace Windu lightsaber is a rarity in the Star Wars galaxy. There are only a few other characters who have possessed an amethyst crystal in the series.
