Could General Grievous have been a Sith? Even though he had so many lightsabers from beating Jedi, was he capable enough to undergo Sith training?
Grievous's biological part doesn't have midichlorians, so he can't use the Force at all whether dark side or not.
Note: Only Force sensitives can be Jedi or Sith.
- Qui-gon Jinn (10,000)
- Shaak Ti (10,300)
- Ki-adi-mundi (10,600)
- Plo Kloon (11,100)
- Kit fisto (11,800)
So if all it takes to potentially be a Sith is force sensitivity, which is from midichlorians, then yes he has the potential. However he has lost most of his body, and while opinion is divided that's likely destroyed what potential he had.
If using the force (Force Lightning and other obvious effects) isn't too important, and we call Darth Maul (who is better known for Lightsaber combat) a Sith I still think he could live up to the name of being a Sith

General Greivous was more man than machine. Even if he was a little Force sensitive there wasn't a lot of natural body parts that would allow him to channel the Force. So to answer your question, no. If he was able to harness the Force however, he would need to be crafted strong Force drawn armor using Sith alchemy.
I swear I saw Grievous use the force to push something away. Also wiki says all humans or beings have midi-chlorians. 2500. Anakin 20,000 per cell. We all have them light or dark. Training or not. Training helps the more sensitive to hone and control the Force. Grievous. Missing a lot of muscle. Would half his cells even if his remaining blood had 15,000 or what eves the total would make him less sensitive. A tall strong Jedi body builder. Would be as capable as Anakin. Just by total blood mass, even if he had lower per cell midi-chlorian count. Have to be rationally similar though. That I'll give You. Strong as obi wan. Midi-chlorians per cell count-wise. A man ch for Anakin easy.
General Grievous could not use the force or be Sith because he was too mechanical and altered, reconstructed from droid parts. He did have Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas's blood (from his corpse) transferred into him-only to keep him from dying so there were midichlorians in the blood but they only keep him alive. On the other hand, he does state that he had Lightsaber combat training, so half of what would be needed is there.
