In each saga, it is often difficult to offer diversity without exponentially increasing the power of the protagonist (s). Star Wars is no exception to the rule, with an element that has been often criticized with the release of the last films, when we discovered the powers of the two main characters of the story: Rey and Kylo Ren. So we had fun comparing the difference in power between the different members of the heroes of the three trilogies. Star Wars : Anakin Skywalker, Luke Skywalker et Rey Palpatine.
What is Rey’s real power?
Rey suffered the wrath of fans instantly after the first movie. Many blaming her for being a Mary-Sue, an archetype of a perfect or near-perfect stereotypical character, overpowering as a whole and whose values are those of the author. A good example of a Mary-Sue character can be found in Dragon Ball Z, with Goku who always gets more power without having any flaws. This archetype is often presented as to be avoided at all costs to have a character to become attached to.
But what are its real capacities? She gains incredibly powerful powers with relatively limited training. She conquered alone Palpatine, made his own yellow lightsaber without forgetting thatshe has a Force Dyad with Kylo Ren, which makes it possible to justify their total and permanent union with the Force. King “triche” to distract the guards with the Force and to mimic Kylo Ren’s mind probe as she draws her knowledge and experience from him.
Star Wars: a glaring imbalance
For simplicity : Rey has had Force training from Luke, combat training from Leia, and an innate gift for manipulating the Force.. Thanks to her Dyad uniting her with Kylo Ren, she is able to use her powers, possesses psychometry (see the past of objects by touching them, power that appeared in Star Wars: Clone Wars) and is able to restore life. Even her dark side helps her, because thanks to the legacy of Grandpa Palpatine, she can modulate the Force in the form of lightning.
On the other side, Luke underwent a long painful training with Master Yoda and can only rely on his long experience and long isolation, which gives him near divine Force control in the Star Wars universe. Finally, Anakin Skywalker has been featured multiple times as the Chosen One of the Force. He has within him the highest rate of midichlorians among the Jedi of his time. (Even if we do not know the rate at Rey, the only one to have reached it or even exceeded Anakin is … Grogu in The Mandalorian!)
Un match en 2 vs 1 vs 1
On the technical side, Rey is already vastly superior to the other protagonists of the films Star Wars. But there is another point on which, here too, she wins: her state of mind. She is less prone to anger than Anakin and Luke. Which implies that she has better control over her emotions and is able to resist the dark side! It is exactly this mentality that allows him to maintain his Dyad with Kylo Ren. She is in a perfect balance between the light side and the dark side of Star Wars.
As long as Rey owns her Force Dyad with Kylo Ren, it will be difficult for the Skywalkers to compete with her. The match is always distorted by the support, direct or indirect, of Kylo Ren. Her control over the Force, her emotions, her learning abilities make Rey the most powerful protagonist of the universe Star Wars.
