Sorry for taking so long to start this. Without further ado, respect Kanan Jarrus!

Accolades and statements 





Long before his prime, Hera pegs Kanan’s abilities as at the “outer edge” of peak human abilities, and this is while holding back so as not to reveal his identity as a Jedi:

Compared to the greatest of Mandalorian warriors, an accolade that speaks for itself:

Kanan is compared to the Jedi of old, who by this point have gained an almost mythical reputation:

It’s worth nothing that agents like Kallus could go toe to toe with and best Lasat warriors like Zeb, who were incredibly good fighters:

Acknowledged as being strong in the Force by the Fifth Brother:

Kanan’s presence in the Force was described as a violent storm by the Bendu, an ancient Force entity seemingly beyond light and dark, describing himself as within the middle of the two:




“Your presence is like a violent storm in this quiet world.”




Kanan’s death released ripples through the Force so powerful that Sidious could feel and identify what they meant from Coruscant. It’s also worth noting that his death had a profound effect on the balance, changing Lothal’s fate:




“There has been a great disturbance in the Force. The death of Kanan Jarrus has altered the fate of Lothal, though how...I can not say.”




His presence is likened to a torch within the Force by the Grand Inquisitor.:

Power growth


Before Rebels begins, Kanan consistently holds himself back for fear of exposing his identity as a Jedi:

(S1) After taking Ezra on as a padawan, Kanan is noted to grow more focused and more powerful:

(S1) Kanan begins season 1 by being a firm inferior to the Grand Inquisitor, a former temple guard and Jedi knight. The Grand Inquisitor is noted to be “far more powerful” than either him or Ezra:


Spoiler:


(In progress) Kanan Jarrus respect thread RiazGZm0VBzO_cdshxONnLUsOIAZFOJjESPY0T5oDXOKIjqhGE11cTJ9KaD2taYZU77-seiNqoJna2NPFZKoodgMzgMgcEbam-plxAtwufAtuCLeYu_2NDS-O9CE05lwJtm2n8Tr




Per Filoni, part of the reason for this is Kanan lacking faith in his abilities:


Spoiler:


''But to the great many that he would've counter one might have pick up a lightsaber, or been like youngling or padawan that survived he would be more than a match for any of them. Remember the Jedi council if they would survived the Inquisitor be a lot harder pressed in that battle.

I would say someone like Mace Windu is far far far above the Inquisitor we've seen in Star Wars Rebels. But in this dark time when the light side is really suffering he is a fairly powerful guy. Especially for someone like Kanan, who kind of lack his own conviction and belief in his own ability at this point. If you do that you don't believe in yourself how can you fight with someone like the Inquisitor. He gets Force thrown he really gets thrown in that throw has much to do with Kanan's own lack of believe in himself as does the Inquisitor is pushing him. There is not a lot countering the Inquisitor in that fight. We thought it was important to show Kanan really struggling.''



 

For reference, the Grand Inquisitor is also compared to Ventress by Dave Filoni:



Spoiler:


“The inquisitors should be able to deal with the majority of Jedi, especially in the time period. Probably in the Clone Wars period they wouldn’t do as well. You know, the best inquisitor is probably almost like Ventress but Ventress I would think is more powerful. That’s just my opinion.”




For reference on why this applies to the GI, the GI is officially the best of the inquisitors:

In their first encounter, it’s essentially a stomp for the GI, who’s grinning and toying with Kanan during the fight:





However, Kanan grows more powerful over the course of the season, even matching the GI for a time in their second last duel while only fighting to buy time:





The GI even notes his growth:


“You’ve been practicing.”


By the time of their final fight, Kanan has grown enough to match the GI on even ground, and even defeat him once he lets go of the fear that’s holding him back:







This has been argued by some users to be a temporary amp per the words of Freddie Prinze Jr. This isn’t true, again per Filoni:


Spoiler:


I would say someone like Mace Windu is far far far above the Inquisitor we've seen in Star Wars Rebels. But in this dark time when the light side is really suffering he is a fairly powerful guy. Especially for someone like Kanan, who kind of lacks his own conviction and belief in his own ability at this point.

He gets Force thrown he really gets thrown in that throw has much to do with Kanan's own lack of belief in himself as does the Inquisitor is pushing him. There is not a lot countering the Inquisitor in that fight. We thought it was important to show Kanan really struggling.''


 

The final fight marks the end of Kanan’s season 1 journey, where he finally stops doubting himself and fully commits himself to the Force:

This amp wasn’t temporary. In truth, what it was was Kanan facing the representation of his fears and letting them go, allowing him to fight at full strength:


Spoiler:

By the end of season 1, Kanan has gone from being stomped by the Grand Inquisitor to surpassing him in power. Even at this stage, Kanan has reached Jedi knight levels of power. 


Season 2’s growth is a lot more implicit, being referenced only a few times:


“The Jedi are growing in their power.”

“It will be their undoing.”

After being blinded by Darth Maul and undergoing training from the Bendu, Kanan goes through noticeable growth on top of this:

Kanan’s growth by this point is so great that he’s noted to be at the pinnacle of his skills (so far):


Spoiler:


(In progress) Kanan Jarrus respect thread NLNKE5g9OCI-BJtCz_pnDgRzbHK_IlgZNgTXcnRlkiN4GU8H-7qHeICPKvo8S-_a40zSrBFlNCr07oD_lshpUsJedSwnCaNT7kaGFyArv9nXFB6ICzR70Eks_e0yV3T1GKytJDP9






Conclusion


As we can see from here, Kanan’s potential throughout Rebels is immense. While he starts off as being far inferior to the likes of the Grand Inquisitor (a Force user compared to, albeit obviously weaker than, Ventress), over the course of a single season, he grows immensely as he overcomes his fear, allowing him to surpass the Grand Inquisitor and ultimately become more powerful.


By the end of season 2, Kanan and Ezra’s combined strength in the Force is powerful enough that the likes of Vader can sense it from across the galaxy. In the finale, he reaches new heights in being able to give himself fully over to the Force and access the canon version of Oneness when called for it, using it to outduel and defeat Darth Maul in a short exchange.  


By season 3, Kanan has reached entirely new heights of power and skill, being at the “pinnacle of his skills”, having “a better understanding of his own emotions and how he can move past them” (emotions that massively hindered him during season 1), attaining a balance in the Force “that never again leaves him”, and now relying on the Force “more deeply than ever before”. 


This growth continues past season 4, as Kanan matures and grows. By his death in season 4, Kanan is leaps and bounds ahead of his season 1 self, and massively eclipses Force users like the Grand Inquisitor and the other Inquisitors.
