There is many Respect threads on Anakin Skywalker, this is my take. He is a hard character to do justice, has ton of material, and it a uphill battle to gather them all just like gathering Vader's. this will be on Jedi knight Anakin, and not Sith Lord Darth Vader. Hope everyone enjoys. Also alot of help from @okayalright_44 in making this.
Other Respect threads I have made.
"You were the Chosen One! It was said that you would destroy the Sith, not join them! Bring balance to the Force, not leave it in darkness!"
Anakin Skywalker was born from the Force itself, and is believed by many in the Galaxy as the Chosen One. He had the highest potential of Force ability out of any Jedi. Born right before the Clone Wars, Anakin trained under Obi Wan Kenobi, and when the Clone Wars broke out, he became a Jedi Knight and Republic general. Anakin was always walking a fine line on the Dark Side due to his wild emotions, and arrogance. It was not till the height of his abilities at the end of the Clone Wars that he joing the Dark Side out of fear for Padme. As a newly made Sith Lord, Anakin was felled by Obi Wan Kenobi, and was then reborn Darth Vader. After becoming Darth Vader, Anakin lost much of his potential, and left the Galaxy in darkness.

Here Anakin overpowers the two strongest force beings on a neutral Force Nexus. the only context was Obi Wan telling Anakin to tap into the same Force Nexus the force beings were manipulating since their arrival, and the context of the Father forcing Anakin to go all out by putting his friends in danger. Still Anakin overpowering the Son and Daughter on a neutral Force Nexus planet. So the context here again is this. Obi Wan "Anakin, the planet is the Force. Use it." Pretty clear Obi Wan is mentioning to Anakin to tap into the same Force Nexus as the children have. The Father "Only the chosen one can tame my children." Pretty clear he means only someone as powerful as himself can tame the Son and Daughter on the same neutral Force Nexus they have access to. This is the context some fans simply dont like.

Anakin uses a very average Lightsaber, however one thing we do know from the clone Wars is that unlike most Lightsabers, it is water proof due to his lightsaber battles underwater.
Besides being extremely powerful in the Force, Anakin was also one of the best Lightsaber duelist of his era. He has been said to dabble in all forms, and as Darth Vader teaches these forms in their entirety to others, and makes a successful hybrid of all forms. However Anakin as an Jedi Knight stuck mostly with Form V, the Djem So and Shien. He was also a accomplish Jar Kai duelist as well.
Form V is the most popular taught form to both Jedi and Sith. It has two parts to it. Djem So, and Shien. Djem So is all about great defense, finding a opening, and counter attacking with all your strength.
