About This Quiz

Squared off on opposite sides of the Force, it might seem like Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi have nothing in common. One is tall, dark and deadly, and the other's, well, not.

"I feel a great disturbance in the Force. As if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced."

Vader was the driving force behind the destruction of the planet Alderaan, but this quote -- an easy one -- came from Obi-Wan.


"Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force."

Although the power of the Force to triumph over technology is just the kind of thing Kenobi would believe in, this one was Vader, ever humble in the presence of the Death Star.


"Don't underestimate the Force."

Another Vader quote.


"Be mindful of your thoughts … they betray you."

It would've been so simple without the ellipses … Obi-Wan said this to Anakin Skywalker.


"I'm just a simple man, trying to make my way in the universe."

Sounds like something Ben Kenobi might have said before revealing himself to be Obi-Wan, but this was Jango Fett, whose simple life led him to trade his DNA -- used to build an army of clone troopers -- for a clone of himself, who he named Boba.


"The Force is strong with this one."

Vader, of course, speaking of the young Luke Skywalker.


"The Force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded."

Although Vader's been the one trumpeting the power of the Force so far, this one was Obi-Wan.


"In my experience, there's no such thing as luck."

This is like Obi-Wan's version of Yoda's "Do or do not. There is no try." Must be a Jedi thing.


"If you're not with me, then you're my enemy!"

Young Anakin Skywalker was only about half as annoying at Jar Jar Binks before growing up to be Darth Vader.


"When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good you will not."

Did you really expect us to write a "Star Wars" quote quiz without a question for Yoda?
