Yellow Lightsabers in Star Wars Canon
The mysterious Jedi Temple Guards are among the most famous wielders of yellow lightsabers. Jedi Temple Guards are a security force of anonymous Jedi sentinels charged with protecting the Jedi Temple. Jedi Temple Guards do not construct their own lightsabers. Instead, each sentinel is issued a yellow-bladed lightsaber pike (i.e. double-bladed lightsaber) to help protect their anonymity. Several High Republic era Jedi wield yellow-bladed lightsabers.
Bounty hunter Asajj Ventress acquired and wielded a yellow-bladed lightsaber after her pair of red-bladed curved lightsaber hilts were stolen. Additionally, Jedi Master Tosan wields a yellow double-bladed lightsaber and Ahsoka Tano wielded a yellow-green bladed lightsaber shoto before constructing her two white lightsabers.
Yellow Lightsaber Color Theory
A yellow lightsaber blade connotes energy, optimism, and warmth along with caution and cowardice. The yellow color reminds us of sunshine, fire, light and heat.
