    Obi-Wan Kenobi (also known as Ben Kenobi) (born 57 BBY on Stewjon - dies 0 BBY on Death Star I, Alderaan system) is one of the protagonists of the Star Wars franchise. He is a Jedi Master who helped train Luke Skywalker in the ways of the Force in the original trilogy, while becoming the deuteragonist of the prequel trilogy. Obi-Wan is also the deuteragonist in the TV show Star Wars: The Clone Wars. He was the apprentice of Jedi master, Qui-Gon Jinn, and later the master of Anakin Skywalker.

    Why He Has The High Ground

    1. Both Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor did an amazing job portraying this Jedi Master.
    2. He's calm, funny and not afraid to put face his problems.
    3. He's a good mentor to Luke (and Anakin who came before him) as he's helpful, caring, inspirational and understanding. In fact, he even treated Luke as his own son in certain points.
    4. He's shown to be an excellent fighter during the prequels. Even when he was becoming old and bent out of place he still had a bit of fighting energy left in him.
    5. He managed to survive the Jedi purge and go into hiding for quite some time hoping he could go after Luke.
    6. Even with Obi-Wan's dry sense of humor, it gives him enough depth and likability to his character.
    7. He created memes from the franchise, that being:
      • "Hello there."
      • "It's over Anakin, I have the high ground!"
      • "You have done that yourself!"
      • "So uncivilized."
      • "Use the force, Luke."
      • "Anakin, my allegiance is to the republic, to democracy!"
      • Only a Sith deals with absolutes. I will do what I must."
      • "I have failed you Anakin. I have failed you."
        • "I should've known that the Jedi were plotting to take over!"
        • "Anakin, Chancellor Palpatine is evil!"
        • "From my point of view, the Jedi are evil!"
        • Well then, you are lost!
    8. Memes aside, not only his battle with Anakin was well-choreographed, but was also very tragic indeed where both master and student who trusted each other now have turned into bitter enemies by Palpatine's plan.
      • Obi-wan didn't just fail Anakin as a student, he has also failed to bring the promise of his late master Qui-Gon to find the chosen one.
    9. The sole fact that he was willing to die so he communicate as Luke's spirit, shows how humble and courageous as is. In fact he even got a trope named after his action known as the "Obi-Wan Moment". (see below)

    The Only Bad Quality

    1. There's been some dispute saying Obi-Wan could have chosen a more creative alias when he was going into hiding, or at least change his surname.
