I only meant the ones in the movie and Sidious doesen't really count since he doesen't really do anything except for force lighting and talking so there's really nothing to udge him about. And yeah Dooku has a cool lightsaber but I like the fact there's character about him. Qui-gon's teacher he was the darkest jedi in the the jedi order and was Yoda's apprentice and so on and so fourth ( I know this cause I read a book called legacy of the jedi). While, Maul is just cool looking and pulls of fancy moves.

BUt we don't really get to see him fight. All we see him do is swing a lightsaber and that's it. I'll probably do another poll after EpIII comes out. PLus I don't realy think much people like Palpitine/ Sidious.

Yeah, taking over the Republic, establishing his Empire & almost wiping out the Jedi all while under their 'watchful eye' is nothing really worth mentioning

Palpatine is my favorite sith, too. Of Tyranus and Maul, I like Tyranus better. Tyranus is the leader of the Seperatists, he trained Qui-Gon, he was trained by Yoda, etc. Maul on the other hand, is just some quiet guy who is good with a lightsaber. Tyranus has a much stronger personal connection to the characters, which makes me think higher of his character.

I chose Maul b/c I like him. Dooku is a good Sith, but Maul was born into the Sith, and grew up as a Sith, giving him more experience with the Dark Side.

Dooku, however, was a Jedi then fell to the dark side, giving him less experience.

Well Maul would probably kick Tyranus' butt in a fight, but I'll go with Tyranus, he has more of a connection to the story.

I picked Dooku because Maul couldn't even do force lightning.

Ok, don't say he could because if he could he would've used it against Obi-Wan instead of standing there making faces, chopping at the crown and then getting chopped in half.

i voted Tyranus, because i felt we didnt get any background information on Maul, he just was there. He didnt have a personality like Tyranus. He was just Sidiuses errand boy.



I tried
so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

I agree, Maul was just there he had nothing by a coo lightsaber and just looked cool. Tyranus on the other hand he a background. A good background too. He was Yoda's Padawan and Qui-gon's teacher

I think there is more to Dooku than meets the eye. Sometimes the most harmless-looking individuals turn out to be the most dangerous. I believe Dooku could easily defeat Darth Maul in a duel.

Maul has this typical thing what every good sith has. That is all I find good at him. I didn't say that Dooku is weak!

((Here goes a long story))

When the first jedi started to drop out the academys they made a group of there own and they fell to the darkside.They got stronger and stronger.The sith (what ever race darth maul was) was force sensitive and where all very strong in the force.They where also the jedi's mortal enemy,so the "drop out jedi" joined them.The number of Darkside jedi increased but the sith decreased as the jedi killed them,Eventualy only one sith remained...Darth Maul! After the sith were dead the darkside jedi took up there way of life and called themselves the sith.

No, no no. The Sith were orginally a race, isolated from the rest of the galaxy. When a group of Jedi fell to the dark side, they were chased from the Republic, and landed on the homeworld of this Sith race. They conquered the Sith and used them as slaves. Because they ruled over the Sith, they called themselves "Lords of the Sith."
ANyway, the Jedi and Lords of the Sith (hereafter referred to as the "sith")eventually met each other again, and eventually all the Sith killed themselves off due to fighting amongst their ranks. The last surviving Sith, Darth Bane, instituted the "rule of two" to prevent the Sith from destroying themselves through their own greed.
Bane went into hiding, taking on an apprentice. This apprentice became a Master and took his own apprentice when Bane died, and so on and so on. Eventually, Darth Sidious/Palpatine became an apprentice, then a Master when his Master died. He took a young Zabrak, Darth Maul, as his apprentice.
When Maul was killed, Sidious corrupted an old Jedi Master, Dooku, and took him as a Sith apprentice, giving him the name of Tyranus.(The last paragraph is my own guess).

This information is based on the New Essential Guide to Characters.

Anyways, I think Maul is cool, and Obi-Wan was lucky to defeat him. However, Tyranus could probably take him, seeing how he easily defeated the man who killed Maul ten years earlier. My vote still goes to Maul, though, for being cool.

Yeah Maul's a Zabrak technically, if you mean the last true Lord of the Sith (Sith) then that would be Palpatine wouldn't it?

Considering the circumstances, Dooku. But otherwise, Maul rocks.


BTW, Sith, monsters? I thought they were just highly advanced Dark Force Users.

We'll see...

That's why I made sure I said Lord of the Sith. 'Cause after he died there was no one to keep up with the traditions.

Like someone previously mentioned the Sith were a race of people. Maul was a Zabrak(sp?) so he wasn't the last true Sith. He was the last true Zabrak Sith Lord.

If Obi-wan can luckily beat Maul, Dooku would've kicked his but all over that hanger without breaking a sweat.

Obi Wan could kill him so easily cause he was very angry about Qui Gons dead. He was leaded by hate.

If you played KOTOR you'll learn that the sith were jedi who were banned from the jedi order. So the sith started out as a group of jedis who were expelled from the jedi order. Just because Maul looks dangerous doesen't mean he's the last true sith. The sith started out as humans as a matter of fact, jedi who were corrupted. Take Exur Kun for an example. He was human and probably more bad than Maul in many ways. Looks doesen't matter. It's the skill that counts.

No, no!
The sith were a species. They were not dangerous until a banned jedi came and teached them in the force.
In the first sith wars they were killed by jedis and there were no sith for a while. Until some stupid jedis came who wanted to live like the sith. They teached everybody they could get.
That are the sith they are today!

Any questions?
