When Anakin incapicated Dooku on the Invisible Hand, He(Anakin) cuts off the both hands of the Sith Lord. As a result, Dooku loses his lightsaber to Anakin.

Afterwards,When Anakin comes closer to Palpatine he removed him from the Chair. But,what happened to Tyrnaus' Lightsaber,Afterwards? Did Anakin give it to Palpatine or Did he keep it?


It was destroyed when the rear of the Invisible Hand (Dooku's flagship) fell off during the landing sequence.

  • The novelisation indicates that Anakin dropped it near Dooku's body.

    Now he stood over a headless corpse that he couldn’t bear to see but he couldn’t make himself look away, and he knew it hadn’t been a dream at all, that he’d really done this, the blades were still in his hands and the ocean of wrong he’d dived into had closed over his head.
    And he was drowning.
    The dead man’s lightsaber tumbled from his loosening fingers. “I-I couldn’t stop myself…”

  • Which matches what we see in the film, with the discarded saber next to Dooku's decapitated and debrachiated body.

  • The lightsaber was left in the conning bridge when the ship began its descent into the Coruscanti atmosphere.

    But why didn't he just keep it? – The Witch King of Angmar Jul 7 '17 at 3:45

    @TheWitchKingofAngmar - Because it's corrupted. Also, why would he want to? What benefit could he get from taking Dooku's customised lightsaber? – Valorum Jul 7 '17 at 7:51

It was destroyed with the Invisible Hand moments later.

Once Skywalker escaped with both Kenobi and Palpatine in tow, Dooku's lightsaber was left behind in Grievous' quarters on the Invisible Hand, which was destroyed shortly thereafter in the final moments of the battle.
Dooku's lightsaber

This demise remains true in both Legends and Canon.

    Presumably because Anakin was distracted by saving Palpatine and Kenobi. We don't really have any way of knowing. – amflare Jul 6 '17 at 19:38
  • Although this is correct, you might want to highlight where and how the wiki gained this information. As a fan-written source, it's often incorrect or at least rather vague on how they know things – Valorum Jul 6 '17 at 21:17
