Two EPIC weapons in the ULTIMATE sbowdown: The Star Wars light saber and the Halo energy sword! Fans of both franchises know that these are iconic weapons on both sides, but that they also have some pretty interesting similarities. Researching how these weapons would be made and what kind of damage they could really do led me to ask just one question: Which one would win in a fight?!

What if there was two Jedi
also you forgot about swing-ability which the light saber would clearly win. not trying to hate
it's Gustav Ludwig Hertz, not herst
Jesse Delgado
halo is the best
Plasma gladius
Billys Mowberrys
did u know the energy sword is available to buy at most stores?
What about the Kylo Crystals?
Glowhoo Penguins
Start staring at the middle of the screen at 1:40 for an optical illusion lol
i hate you i like star wars more!😡
But what happens when you heat up plasma?😀😀
heet shah
but kyber crystals are the batteries are the batteries of lightsabers
halo 2 energy sword on multiplyer had infinite uses
B ooòooooooooo star wars is better :)
more 37

lightsaber would win because darth mauls lightsaber was all based around stabbing and poking. or kylo rens lightsaber could allso get somebody in a clashing pose and stab somebody in the shoulder or knee or even side he only covered two basic lightsaber design but if you get in deeper lightsaber takes the victory
Jacob Youngblood
Why have one blade when you can have SEVEN
reece bird
plasma sword is way better, stronger and light saber, plus the master chief would crush any Jedi with his strength and honestly wreck him. give a like if you agree.
Actually the ten swing battery life would just be a spitball estimate. We have no real source to calculate its canon battery life. Either way the energy Sword is still superior
Ghost of Ronin
10 swings no, 10 successful strikes... yes

bit of a difference there
Starship McGillicutty
I have one thing to say:

1: Matpat claimed that the energy sword only has 10 hits. While in the games yes, it does have 10 hits, but that's just for balancing reasons. In Halo lore the energy swords have way more than 10 hits.

I'll kill both,BOOM I WON

Lightsabers have better griping and the energy sword has a weird handle that makes it hard to control.
you shouldn't get into fighting styles, not at all.
but since you did: The energy sword is useless, in the real world nothing like it would ever be developed because the gap is useless and the guard would chop of your own hands.
Brian Troy
I mean this with the utmost respect, mat pat. but you're just plane and simply wrong. Even without factoring in the characters from each series what you should factor in is the purpose of each weapon. The lightsaber is not just a weapon, but a tool of the jedi, the reason it is kept so plane and simple is because its versatile. Not to mention the obvious fact that you'd be more likely to lose your wrist to that energy sword than have it be protected. The blade would simply deflect the lightsaber slightly further down your arm, worse yet, if you blocked a swing with the energy sword, it's own "guard" which is also plasma, would dig into your own wrist. I own many prop weapons from video games and things like that, fancy guards on sword type weapons are a hindrance, not an advantage. Hell I cant even count the times my kit rae sword of darkness has stabbed me in my own wrist. But thats the REAL thing here, THE WRIST. The thing about plasma weapons is that they could do serious damage without much applied force, burning through the target rather than cutting. For that reason, you're much better off having full maneuverability and wrist control with your blade, than if your blade is stuck with just the mobility of your forearm. You seem to have left that out completely. but case and point lightsaber wins
the day of the bots
Yes fighting is a thing
yo matt lightsabers have a crystals so how does this "crystal create plasma
The Dude
What about the Arbiter's orange/red energy sword that doesn't ever run out? The short "battery life" is for balance as opposed to some limitation really...
Caiden Tucker
If it was Luke against 117 Luke is going to have his insides fried by plasma! And I am a huge Star wars fan but a even bigger Halo. 117 has more experience than Luke.
so sonic is plasma
red assassin
but wouldnt the lightsaber slice through the hilt? you know when the lightsaber goes in the sword?
Joachin Mapes
lightsabers are powered by kyber crystals not plasma.
Leo Dorell
I do fencing
Richard Phelps
why really they chicken clucking in the beginning
Daniel Pereira
Well, the Jedi with no light saber can wreck the noob with the best light saber in the world with only using the force.
good. you're both how. now FIGHT
Cara Matthews
Am I the only one that actually thought light sabers were called life savers or light savers 😂😅😂😅
Analytic Cobra
It annoys me so much when someone says "Calvary" instead of "Cavalry"
Eric Yeo
Yeahhhhhhh I was rooting for Energy Sword and this video made me go up and down more than twice lmao
The Innocent Xeno
But the light saber's blade is made from a kyber crystal
Jasper Gehr-Edwards
Yeah, but what about the fact that lightsabers can cut through practically anything, and if you have tried doing that in halo with an energy sword, you should no it does not do anything. This give lightsabers an extreme advantage.
The Math guy who cares too much
I don't know anything about Halo, but it looks like if the lightsaber went down the middle of that energy sword, it would cut the handle of the sword (or at least the hand of the wielder). Besides, if the energy sword did catch the lightsaber in the middle, the lightsaber wielder could simply turn off the lightsaber to free it unexpectedly, then quickly turn it on to finish off the opponent. This was not considered. After all, the lightsaber is super lightweight and quick.
6:51 why are the steam currency danish?
SW Life
I am ok with dis 👌
Dragon Knight
Rob Johnson
15:20 Ahem. CALVARY sword??? It's a CAVALRY sword. I'm disappointed in you, MattPatt.
