For the longest time i thought the lightsabers were color coded to the wielder's level in the force (bad color on a tv when i saw ESB made me dream this up LOL) I thought it went:

Green-Jedi Master
Blue- Jedi Apprentice
Purple (this is where the bad color for watching ESB comes in)-Dark Side Apprentice
Red-Dark Side Master

When luke fought vader at the end of ESB, it looked like his saber was purple instead of blue, that's where i got confused. Personally i think it could still work, since mace's style of saber combat (EU anyway) supposedly treads on the Dark Side. When i found out about the crystals thing, then yeah my theory just falls apart, but still, i like it  :mad0218:

Cuz he's a "B.M.F." and gets what he wants. That's the only reason there needs to be.
He (S.L. Jackson) asked for purple.  :cool0037:

As for why the character of Mace has the purple blade, from what I remember it has to do with the fact that he uses both Jedi and Sith lightsaber forms in his fighting style (I can't remember exactly where I read that, so maybe someone else can confirm I've got my story straight on that however )

I can't "confirm" that backstory adafl, but i've no doubt it's true. Let's assume it is, but that's only an invented reason after the fact that S.L.J. asked G.L. if he could have purple. It's not like it was some grand design. But G.L. likely did go away from the convo and think " ok how am I going to make that work? oh ya, a mix of saber styles ya that works"

Ya Jodo, I couldn't help but think of that photoshop pic of yours when I posted that! I had seen it before :love0030:
It kinda nicely makes the point I was trying to make. Thanks cuz it would have been um,  kinda hard to explain for anyone who didn't get it  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

This is was the info I was thinking of...

"Purple is a rare lightsaber color, not only because the crystal is hard to obtain, but also because of its meaning; purple is a mixture of red and blue, so one who has a purple lightsaber has studied the various forms of lightsaber combat, but has also gone to the dark side to learn the art of Sith combat...Nearly every Jedi who has wielded a purple blade has been a powerful Jedi, and a catalyst for change. Therefore, they could be considered "Jedi Powers". (the whole article is here - http://www.answers.com/topic/lightsaber-1)

But, yeah, like you say Sifo, this all just an EU reason to explain that when SLJ wants a purple lightsaber, he gets one  :cool0037:

this story by Dav'sa Arman does not add up. Are we forgetting that the light and sound effect of the lightsaber in the movies are computer animations?? The actors are using handles with sticks. They are not using FX lightsabers on the movie sets. there is no way SLJ can use his prop to find lint.

For me the question is more "Where in the EU does it come from" because answers.com is not even EU!

By the way, I have just tagged this onto a thread that already discussed this...

Nope, you're right...I shouldn't have used the term "EU" in my last post...I can't source that anywhere else

It's purple because Mace killed Barney the Dinosaur and doing the universe such a great favour, his blade turned purple.

THE REASON MACE'S LIGHTSABER IS PURPLE IS BECAUSE NONE OF THE OTHER LIGHT CRYSTALS SUITED HIM
