We know some Jedi use red Lightsabers, but I'd like to know who all of them are.

I know Adi Gallia originally used a red blade.

Typically, Sith or former Sith use red. Jedi don't. –  Force Flow Nov 22 '12 at 4:54

How is this "non-constructive"? Granted it's not a great question, but it's not "non-constructive" in the least. –  DVK Nov 24 '12 at 13:42

Because it's a list question. –  neilfein Dec 3 '12 at 4:50

Adi Gallia was the only explicit example of a Jedi that was not Dark/Sith-turned.

The reason there were very Jedi with red lightsabers was because Jedi had issues not with the color, but with the technology: most red crystals were synthetic ones, and their creation was mostly possible using Dark Side of the Force.

However, natural red crystals also occurred, though rarely, and those COULD be used by Jedi:

Not all red lightsaber crystals were synthetic. Adegan crystals featuring a red coloration were not unheard of, Darth Vader utilizing such a crystal in one of his lightsabers, and red-hued crystals were known to form naturally in the Crystal Caves on Dantooine, along with blue, green, yellow and violet crystals. However, unlike the other crystals, the red crystals from Dantooine were typically found in unhatched kinrath eggs.

Hooded Figure: Save your wife.
Brat: mmmm.

Hooded figure: Phenomenal cosmic power.
Brat: mmmm.

... deep silence

Hooded figure: ... red lightsaber?

Brat: OMG. Sign me up!!!

You know better than to post non-answers as answers. Evidently, as you made it CW in order to avoid the expected rep-loss ^^ –  bitmask Nov 22 '12 at 19:23

@bitmask- did you bother seeing it AFTER the edit? It's pretty much the only answer available to this silly question. –  DVK Nov 22 '12 at 20:58
    
Now I did. It's a good point. Although it still wouldn't really answer the (possibly list-) question. –  bitmask Nov 23 '12 at 6:49

Luke created his lightsaber using green synthetic crystals, so I wouldn't be so eager to say that such crystals require the dark side of the force to create, even for red ones. –  Dungarth Nov 23 '12 at 16:09

@DVK in Shadows of the Empire (novel), Luke created his lightsaber crystal using a device (an oven?) in Ben's hut. –  DavRob60 Nov 23 '12 at 20:27
