The Force is a source of energy in Star Wars. It resembles magic in most fantasy stories. The Jedi and the Sith both tap into this energy when fighting. However, the Sith use an evil, corrupt part of the Force, called The Dark Side (also known as the "Dark Side of the Force), similar to black magic. These powers are forbidden among Jedi, but Sith tap into these powers. Sith who tap into the Dark Side use abilities like force choke, sith lightning, dark rage, and many more.
