Star Wars has introduced a bunch of concepts that have become part of pop culture, most notably the Force, through which those sensitive to it can channel different powers and abilities, but these change depending on the side the user leans towards to the most – and here’s every Force power that only the Sith can use. Ever since the movie now known as Star Wars: A New Hope was released in 1977, this vast universe has been in constant expansion not only through movies but also TV shows and other media, most notably books. However, it’s best known for the Skywalker saga, which covers a total of nine movies that established the basic concepts and main characters that would lead this franchise.
Through characters like Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, Darth Vader, and Emperor Palpatine, viewers have become acquainted with the politics within the Star Wars universe, the habits of the many species living in it, and their different abilities, but the most popular concept that originated in this universe is that of the Force. This refers to an energy field created by all life that connects everything in the universe, and as such, it resides in all lifeforms, but it’s especially powerful in certain individuals. These people are called Force-sensitive, and with proper training, they are capable of consciously sensing the Force – and through that, they can harness it, thus accessing a variety of Force powers.
These abilities can vary depending on the side of the Force the user has more affinity with: the light side, to which the Jedi Order adhered, and the dark side, mostly represented by the Sith. Although both sides have some powers in common, due to the ideology and purposes of each one some powers are only present on light side users and others on dark side users – and so here’s every Star Wars Force power only the Sith can use.
Both Jedi and Sith can do mind tricks, and though there are some that are of common use, others are exclusive to one side. In the Sith’s case, they can use mind control on their targets, thus taking complete control of their will and using them as their puppets. The Sith also push boundaries when it comes to obtaining information from their “victims” through “mind probe”, which allows them not only to scan their thoughts but go as deep as to steal deep memories and stored knowledge. This is obviously not a smooth and painless process for the victim, and the damage can be so intense that in some cases they are left mentally broken.
This ancient Sith technique was conjured through magic and created a radiant sphere of pure hatred. With it, the user could hurt any target by flinging it at them, and on impact, the sphere caused a lot of mental and physical damage. Although this power has mostly appeared in Star Wars Legends media, it was present in The Clone Wars, in the episode “Sacrifice”.
As the name says, this is a dark side Force power used to choke a victim, often with a grip-like gesture. It’s a technique of telekinesis fueled by dark emotions, and some users could even lift the victim off the ground, holding them by their necks. This power can go as far as twisting, bending, or breaking the target’s neck.
