What about this one?

06-28-2002, 09:04 AM
Hard to say, since we haven't seen Maul work against non-Jedi. However, I said Jango just 'cause I think he is that good. After all, he took out a member of the Jedi council. :)

well obi wan was nearly killed by jango fett they got into a nice little struggle..but i'd guess if maul was still alive he'd be better than obi wan. and he'd do what mace windu did ;)

are you stupid or something

I think Maul would own Jango. Mace Windu took him out as easy as I've seen anyone killed in a SW movie.

Jango's very dependant on his devices... IF he had full jetpack capabilities, and somwhere to fly away to while shooting (which is what he did to Obi-Wan)... I'd say there is a possibility that Jango could win. You have to remember though, he did have several factors working in his favor when he fought Obi-Wan.

Maul can deflect the blaster bolts, but what about fire or a rocket?
And what is maul going to do when Jango has caught his hands in his grappling hook/line/whatever?

I say that Jango has a pretty good chance of beating maul in an arena-like enviroment.

BTW: Since we haven't seen anyone force-pushing away a rocket in the movies (like they do in JO) it's probably not possible in Lucas' mind.

If Jango wouldn't have had his jetpack destroyed by that rinho-creature (Reek is it?) Mace wouldn't be able to kill him that easily.
We also see that Mace doesn't deflect blaster shots very fast.
Just look at him deflecting the super battle droids shots: Most shots misses!!!!
Jango on the other hand hits all of his shots on Obi-Wan (and Obi has to roll out of the way to survive).

if anyone hear read Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter they'd know that Maul defeated a bouty hunter who fired a rocket at him. Maul wins hands down, he's a frickin dark jedi, man. he'd just grip the s**t out of Jango.

Yeah I'd have to go with maul, I mean how he took out that jedi with just a quick firing blaster made me laugh out loud when I first saw it. I mean that jedi must have been asleep at his desk in Jedi class (figure of speech :P) I mean that's Jedi 101.

I think Maul was very talented and woulda cleaved any person who was not force sensitive.
Its a shame he died, but he died because he got cocky...

If u watch that fight again, u will see that he more or less easily killed Jin and he had more or less defeated Ob1.
His only fault was to gloat in his victory, the funny thing is he accually sees his own death a split second before ob1 jumps up and halfs him, just imagine that, you're standing there gloating in you're vast superiority and u get a flash of you're body cut in two spinning down a large hole, that musta shocked him so much that he couldnt of reacted in time.

Shame :rolleyes:

There is a lesson in this, dont gloat as u may not see wots coming next :D

yeah that guy's suit is unstoppable, it'd be a damn good fight I'd say....

Maul is very good... well, not as good as mace windu... but still, both maul and fett died because their opponents got lucky.....

yep fett nearly killed obi wan that time,... actually twice, remember the chase?

Jango Fett is .. like.....the best bounty hunter there is, NOBODY uses long range weapons better than him i'd say...

and Maul woudl put up a good fight, its hard to say who'd lose ... hehehe

maybe we should make a guy with a Darth Maul model fight a guy with a Jango Fett model?
yeah, if only we could make a mod to use the jetpack.....

heh heh heh

Maul no contest.
Remember that Sith use and abuse the force any way they please. Force grip,lighning,pull,push,jump,speed, ect.
Jango wouldnt be a match for Maul. All Jango would be able to do is jet pack away. But then Maul would force push him into a wall while in the air:)
When Obi-Wan was fighting Jango , he was trying to capture Jango not kill him. Besides Jedi dont abuse their force powers. Sith do. Maul would be going for the kill

After a looong consideration I would go for Jango Fett.

- Maul is good in saber duel not handling the galaxy best bounty hunter.

-Also,Maul seldom show off his Force. So I speculate he is still not very good at it.

-Jango has alot of fancy equipment. Well if his JetPack is function the whole time, he is kinda unstopable.

So, Jango have abot 68% winning chances.

You know not of what you speak! Maul does show off his use of the Force. He only uses the Force in ways that do not enhance the body twice, but both times he did it with ease. He casually Force-threw a battle-droid carcass into a penel that opened the doors to the generator chamber, and when he was hard-pressed by Obi-Wan he didn't hesitate to throw him backward. Maul just likes to dispatch people with the lightsaber, it's his style.

Blasterbolts can be deflected (imagine how effective a 2x lightsaber would be for that, all you do is spin it around fast and you have an unbreakable shield), rockets can be evaded (Maul could certainly jump and had precognition enough to know where blows would land when his guard was up), weapons can be pulled away (which would leave any bounty-hunter at Maul's mercy--which he has none), and tripwires can be severed. The only way Jango had a chance against Obi-Wan was because he lost his lightsaber (and didn't he lose it as a result of Boba's interferring in the battle?).

Maul would win, hands down. Never underestimate the power of the Force, or the Dark Side.

Maul would slice and dice Jango Fett. Although I think Jango is cool, Maul would annihilate him.

Blasterbolts can be deflected (imagine how effective a 2x lightsaber would be for that, all you do is spin it around fast and you have an unbreakable shield)

Actually it would be much much harder...you would have to be thinking about the multiple blaster bolts and where the other end of your lightsaber was, because it wouldn't be an impenetrable shield, there would always be the middle where the hilt was.

I voted for Jango because I think people like Darth Maul wayyyyyyy too much...lol

I'd be a close battle.

Maul Pros:

- In Shadow Hunter you see that Maul use's the Force to inhance his phsyical abilities and he survived a fatal fall duel to his intense mental disipline.

- His skill with the double blade lightsaber.

- He has lightning fast reflexs and can sense what Jango would do before he did it.

- Powers of the dark side and the Force, nuff said.

Jango Pros:

- Jet pack, short range blasters and some other fancy gear at his disposel.

- Skillful hand to hand fighter.

- Bounty Hunter sense.

I'd have to say Maul but it would be a long and difficult battle.
