To me he will always be the best of the bad,:sprobe:
even better than Boba's dad,:fett:
even though I am sad he's dead,:saberg:
at least Darth Maul didn't lose his head.:jango:

Any comments or favorite moments about Darth Maul post here.

He certainly made a sweet saber fight. But, interestingly enough, I liked Dooku better, probably because Dooku actually spoke more than two lines. ;)

LOL. Yeah, I have a problem with characters that speak no more than 2 or 3 lines *cough* Boba Fett *cough.* Interesting that Maul is the most popular bad guy, even though he's the weakest of the Sith Lords. Fett used to be the most popular, too, but for some reason, not as much right now. I think it has to do with the prequels because of the new "Jedi wave." I mean, now that there are a lot more Jedi/Sith characters to choose from since the first trilogy.

I can get seriously flamed now, but I don't like either of them. I mean, they're cool, I guess, but I like characters with substance, wisdom, and, well, character. Not just who's badass. Although, I think Darth Sidious is the most badass of them all, heh heh.

Very nicely written poem, though. If you wrote that, you're pretty good.

To me, Darth Maul is the best Sith next to Darth Vader. Lets face it, he survived more than one film. But I thought Maul was awesome, you don't see a martial artist Sith with a double bladed lightsabern terrorizing a planet everyday.

07-01-2002, 07:40 PM
He had a double lightsaber. That makes him the best wether he lives or not.

07-01-2002, 08:52 PM
Plus the red face and tatooes made him badass looking.

07-01-2002, 09:02 PM
They could have let him live and have him escaped, greviously wounded by Obi, only to get cut down years later as he quests for revenge. And really could have used him more in the film. The man is a good actor.

Or even better: Maul is alive, ambushes Anikin, kills him, and uses the force to make Padme think he is Anikin, and takes his place. :D

Hehe, that would be fun.

Change to scene in ESB:

Vader hacks off Luke's hand, luke balances precariously on the edge, about to fall

Vader: "Luke, I am your father!"

Luke: "Really? Dad? You don't say? Your too cool, let's go home and whup the Emporer's Butt!"

I realy should start sleeping at night.

IF he wouldnt have been overconfident and just killed Obi wan instead of toying with him, he would have been awsome with more training and experiance. He would have become a real Powerhouse sith lord. Remember that he was like Sidious's son. Sidious molded Maul into a being of pure evil. Unlike Anakin and Dooku who were first Jedi and were way older before becoming siths. Maul was a Sith since childhood. Anyhow I like him cause of his style. He wasnt into fancy talk , just a fighting machine.

Maul was a great friend, and a helluva card player. He beat me down to my Socks!!!!!


I remember we where walking on the beach of Naboo once and he turned to me and said :"Obi-wan13, buddy, I want something more in life. I see us owning a business, or going fishing when we are older. We will be friends for many years to come."

I cried. Thats all I could do.

untill that fateful day......

We split up and went our own ways. He went to school and studied to become a marine biologist, and I, Well, you know I went to become a Jedi. I studied under a man named Qui-Gon Jin. He was a great pal, too.

Well, there was this droid invasion on Naboo this one time, and it turns out Maul was there. I said, "Hey Maul!!!! BUDDY!! What are you doing here?"

he said nohting, and lit up a double bladed lightsaber.

"Dude, It's me, Obi-wan13!" I shouted, but he ignored me. Then, My master lit his lightsaber, so, following his lead, I lit mine. I was a bit confused, and did not know what to do. Then Maul struck at my master, and the fight was on. I could have killed Maul at the very beginning, but he was my friend, so I let the fight drag on as long as I could.

Untill we reached the Lazer gates. Darn those gates. They ruined everything. Me and my master got split up, and Maul killed him. I couldn't believe it. At the top of my lungs, I shouted "NOOOOOO!" to show my disapproval of my old friend. That caught his attention, and he looked at me. It was obvious that this man had now turned to the dark side. We fought as soon as the lazer gates open, and he pushed me into the reactor core. I cought my hand on a nearby ledge, and hung on for dear life. I then jumped out, and cut him in half using my master's lightsaber. He just looked at me. Then, he got a note out of his pocket, and droped it on the floor. Then he fell into the hole, and I picked up the note. It said:

Dear Obi-wan,

If you are reading this, then I am dead. I want you not to cry, old friend, I am ok. There is a man named Dex I want you to know. He will be your new friend.

Your Friend,


Oh how I miss him. But I have Dex now.

07-01-2002, 10:19 PM
I hear dex has been putting on weight.

07-01-2002, 10:22 PM
Yes, he is putting on weight, but he is still a good friend. I am glad Maul suggested him. sure, he may stink and all, but he's a really nice guy. He just started his new Diner on Curoscant, And it's really working out for him.

07-01-2002, 10:38 PM

He was so young too.

*looks at dart*

I don't know. Perhaps the Archives are incomplete. I'll go ask Dex.....No, I guess I won't be asking Dex, would I? :(

Impossible, if it is not in the archives, then it does not exist. Or does it?

07-01-2002, 10:45 PM
"I'm sorry, who?"

"Jedi Master Sifo Dias killed him, I am sure."

"Master Sifo Dias was killed, about 10 years ago."

"Well then, maybe it wasn't Sifo Dias after all. This IS his dart, though."

hmmm....Sifo Dias's dart killed Dex................I must get to the Bottom of the quickly. R4, pack your things. We're Leaving.

07-01-2002, 10:48 PM
I have been having trouble sleeping. Images of my mother. She is in pain, suffering....

07-01-2002, 10:52 PM
Count Dooku, I should Have known you killed Dex!

"No, I didn't kill Dex! They've gone to far this time! This is madness! I shall petition to have you released Immidiatly."

Why, so you can kill another one of my friends?

"I wish Qui-GOn where here. He would believe me."

Qui-Gon JInn would never believe you.

"You forget, I tought him."

Well that don't mean jack. I still don't believe you.

"Then it may be difficult to secure your release."

07-01-2002, 10:54 PM
obi-wan13 is in trouble and less than a parce away from here. But the jedi council told me to stay here and that is my assignment. :confused:

07-01-2002, 10:55 PM
Darth Maul is an @SS...

"My 2 cents is free..."

07-01-2002, 10:57 PM
*Is tied to a tall post*

Darnit Dooku!

"I said it would be difficult to secure your release. I wasn't kidding."

*three monster things come out*

I have a bad feeling about this.

07-01-2002, 10:58 PM
You are disturbed.....

07-01-2002, 10:59 PM
*Arrives just in time*

Release him Dooku

*Holds saber to Jango's neck*

07-01-2002, 11:03 PM
*Gets free, big fight scene happens*

*chases after Dooku, gets stabbed in arm and leg*

*gets back to Coruscant, the end.*

Well this whole Attack of the clones/Dex thing has been fun, but the mods might see it as something bad.:p

07-01-2002, 11:06 PM
Ahhh yes, the mods. Many banning, warnings, and erased post I see.

i like darth maul and vader, i guess kun was cool too. bottom line is that they were fighters! not just wise old geezers who plan and plot and make others do their dirty work. im probably gonna get flamed for this but i like sithlords with some fighting honour! vader would rather have stood in the path of an army then have to sink to political subterfuge.

WHAT!!?? *boils with rage for about 5 minutes* Okay, I'm cool now. I disagree. I like the political, genius mastermind types. I mean, yeah, I like tough fighter guys, too, and I'd love Maul if he had more backstory/lines/ whatever. But, I'm just the kind of guy who doesn't like someone just because they have a double-bladed saber. Although Vader doesn't indulge into politics, he commands a large portion of the Empire, and seems to have the same military power as that of a Grand Admiral, or greater. Plus, he's pretty much the deepest character in the films, and he still has time to whip out a saber and kick some ass.

Tyranus is a good fighter, too. When he was a Jedi, he didn't concentrate on meditation or the Republic. He was a master fencer. So if fighters are your taste, you should definitely have Tyranus on your list. Hopefully, Sidious will have a good fighting scene in Episode III so he can be on your list, too.

Obi- wan13's story was compelling, and would make a great EU novel/comic book/video game/franchise.

Any way I wanted to share my memorie of Maul. All of my life I have been influenced by scary guys who where black. I really can't explain it. First it was Darth Vader, and for years I followed in his footsteps(his feet are really big by the way), howeve I could never fill his costume.( I am only about 5' 7", plus I could never build one that looked right.) Then came Batman around the end of the 80's. Dark, black, mysterious, and had a car the chicks would die for. Plus he had money! Those shoes were to easy to fill but the costume was a bust because for the next 2 years everyone was Batman, so there was no contest. Then after I grow out of childhood, fast forward to 1999. Out of the desert of Tattoine comes this menacing hooded dark warrior, who has twice the gadjets of Batman, including probe droids, a spaceship, macrobinoculars, and a sythe shaped Harley. He's shorter than me, (at least he looks that way on screen) he's got a pierced ear, tattoos, and knows enough martial arts to make Jet Lee run like hell. And of course.........the double saber!!! And not only that but finally I had found a costume that fit me, and I have been him every Halloween since!! I feel that his lack of dialouge made him more interesting, but I have to agree that in the end it was his overconfidence that got him killed. Had I been Darth Maul I would have Force choked Obi when he was in that pit instead of wasting my energy chopping away with a broken lightsaber.
