What you say?

I mean, is it about:
Saber Wielding skillz?
Saber looks?
Power of the lightsaber, like crystals and such?

I'm afraid that wasn't comletly unbiased but there you go.




The following tale of alien encounter is true and by true, I mean false. Its all lies. But they're entertaining lies, and in the end isn't that the real truth? The answer is no.

Well, technically since Mace "BMF" Windu is 10 Maul would at best be 9.9, and possably less, more like 9.7-9.8 at best.

Obi-Wan is better than Maul after he evolves, and there might be another Jedi or two who is better.

We are not counting non 1-6 era characters I guess cause if so Maul or even Windu would be only considered "quite strong"

There are people like Exan Kun... who can eat Windu, Obi, Anakin and Maul for breakfast.

Its funny when you consider what happens in the films:

Maul>Obi but Maul still dies

Obi bested by Dooku TWICE

Obi beats anakin

Obi beats grievous

Anakin bested by Dooku as padawan, then gets revenge as jedi knight

Qui Gon pwnt by Maul. end of story

Mace ?beats? Sidious (or did sidious let him defeat him to help convince anakin)

Sidious beats Yoda

Sidious beats half of jedi council

*based on what we've seen I'd say Sidious is the 'toughest'*

Nice analysis there, Astrotoy7.

My thought is that some of these characters' lightsaber skills changed over time, Anakin and Obi-Wan especially. Once Anakin went into the suit I think his lightsaber wielding proficiency decreased. But of course even if his skills with the lightsaber weren't as good as when he had three natural limbs they were better than ending up with three stumps and an artificial right hand to fight with.

*** imagines Vader without a left hand or legs, slicing everybody's feet off with his lightsaber. ***

Darth Vader the rolling dervish!

Maul was tired from killing Qui-Gon, and Obi-Wan used 'revenge' to beat Maul. Just like Luke did in the cave on Dagobah.

Anakin (untrained in the dark arts) let his anger cloud his judgement.

Not only a cheap shot, but Qui Gon was worried for young Obi Wan- distracted. Maybe he pulled an 'Obi-Wan' like when Obi-Wan fell to Vaders saber (to give strength to his padawan).

Let him win. All part of the master plan.

again, distracted by ripples in the force the killing of the other Jedi.

You could also say Anakin was better than most of the Jedi because he killed most of them in the temple (the younglings).

Possible, but as Yoda has trained jedi for 800 years, most likely one of Yoda's former students trained Sidious, or Yoda knew who DID train him.

I personally BELIEVE Yoda was the 'toughest', certainly the strongest in the force, if not the best swordsman.

My scorecard:

Yoda: 10
Palpatine: 9.7
Mace Windu: 9.5
Qui-Gon: 9.3
Obi-Wan: 8.5
Count Dooku: 8
Luke: 8
Anakin: 7.5


Darth Maul: 100 (10) (J/K, 9 all day long)

Sidious wasn't trained by a Jedi obviously. And most probably not by ex-Jedi too - Darth Plageuis or w/e its spelled was a true Sith IMO.

Back on topic:

Yoda: 9.3
Palpatine: 9.5
Mace Windu: 10
Qui-Gon: 8
Obi-Wan: 9
Count Dooku: 9.3
Luke: 8.5
Anakin: 9.8
Darth Vader: 8.9
Darth Maul: 10
