The Plo Koon lightsaber is a clan saber. Several additional Prequel Trilogy lightsabers are similar in appearance and design to the Plo Koon lightsaber including the Mace Windu TPM lightsaber and the Luminara Unduli lightsaber. The Plo Koon lightsaber’s characteristic radiator style emitter is comprised of a series of flat blue rings. The upper grip section features grooves. A short red cylindrical greeblie and short black cylindrical greeblie adorn the lower body of the hilt. The pommel, which narrows from its top to its base, is encircled with a series of short, angular fins.

The fate of the Plo Koon lightsaber is unknown, although the weapon was likely destroyed during the execution of Order 66. Following the issuance of Order 66, a clone pilot shot down Plo Koon’s ship. The Jedi Master died in the subsequent explosion and crash.
