Vader vs. Maul

I always wondered who would win in a fight between Darth Vader and Darth Maul...they're both cool and got cool powers. Vader seems to have more powers and is probably a more advanced Sith than Maul, but Maul knows a bunch of Kung-Fu moves that would probably give Vader a hard time. The good thing that VAder has going for him is that he managed to nail a Queen! How many guys can brag about that? I dont think Maul ever pulled that off, but then we dont know for sure do we. I decided to make a comparison between VAder and Maul..

ACCOMPLISHMENT DARTH VADER DARTH MAUL
* Bagged a Queen Yes No
* Kicked a Jedi's ass Yes Yes
* Got his ass kicked by a Jedi No Yes
* Beat his kids ass Yes No

WINNER: DARTH VADER

Making this i thought of making a comparison between Ray Park the guy that played Darth Maul (My Hero) and Ray Parker Jr.

ACCOMPLISHMENT RAY PARK RAY PARKER JR.
* Starred in high grossin Yes No
films
* Teenagers know who he is Yes No
* Adults remeber him Yes No
* Cast of Ghostbusters Yes No
remember him

WINNER: RAY PARK

goofy or not, you forgot that Vader got his ass kicked by a Jedi (Luke) as well in RotJ. Now think about whether or not Maul would be better than Luke in that final frantic fight in Jedi; i think he would, so I'd say Maul would win..

It is very hard to fight a double-bladed lightasber bearing sith with only one person. You really need two to prtect each other. So i think Maul would him, especially since he is more agile.

I think it depends on the age of the person. Maul was at his peak, so if Maul fought OT Vader then Maul would win. But if Maul fought episode 3 Vader...well I don't know who would win since we haven't seen epi.3 Vader fight. I would probably give it to epi. 3 Vader though, since he is the "chosen one".

Ok, Vader was one of the most powerful Sith ever, where as Maul was your average Sith. Vader vs Maul, is like an SSD vs ISD, the SSD would obviously win, as would Vader.

Then why did Luke kick Vaders butt? I think it was because he was getting old and being eaten away by the Darkside. Maybe if Vader was at his peak he would win, but he wasn't, so he wouldn't Thats just my take on the battle.

No, it's because Luke wa Vader's son, and was just as powerful, or at least had as much potential.

Well he was 9 in episode I, and that's about 35 years before ep 6, so he was about 44.

Dont forget that Vader wasnt trying to kill Luke he was trying to turn him to the Dark Side. So I think that Maul at his peak VS Vader at his peak = Vader Winnner

Everyone of you saying Vader wouldn't whipe the floor with Maul is forgetting that Vader did kinda hunt down and kill pretty much all the Jedi in the Universe...... Maul wouldn't stand a chance.

Yeah... Maul may be athletic, and quicker, and more agile... but he doesn't have the control of the force Vader does = winner!

Actually, he did defeat Qui-Gon, and he defeated Obi-Wan too. Then he just got careless and didn't go ahead and kill obi-wan and he payed the price.

well, that's also from a certain point of view.
first of all, remember Obi saying: 'You can't win' ?
Then he ALLOWED Vader to strike him. Hardly a defeat in my book.

I agree, But Maul(at his peak) still would not have been able to beat Vader when he was at his peak. Did Maul kill nearly all of the Jedi? No. But Vader was able to.

Is he forgetting that Vader is the one that killed about 99.9% of the Jedi, all by himself, I doubt Maul would be capable of that task.

If they had alot of Dark Jedi then how come you only see Vader and the Emperor in the movies and not any other Dark Jedi?

They killed all the dark jedi afterwards, so there would be no contest to their power.

If they killed off the Dark Jedi so fast then the Dark Jedi must not have been very powerful and wouldnt have been alot of help in destroying the Jedi.

Okay Maul would have been soo overconfident. Anikan could have defeated him at about 15 years old.(midiclorians) Maul was defeated by a Padawan(Obi-One was still a padawan at the time) He was way to overconfident and let his gaurd down. Luke would have beaten Maul when he lost to Vader at Bespin. Maul was good, but was too weak for the massive midiclorians of the Skywalkers.

Luke couldn't have beaten Maul when he was at Bespin. Maul has a double bladed lightsaber. He could just block one of Lukes attacks and then slice him in two with the other side. Luke wasn't even as good as ObiWan was he he was at Bespin. A fully trained Sith would slauhter him. Like Vader would have if he didn't want to convert him.

Remeber you don't have to be fully trained to use the force. Luke has so much midiclorians it just didn't matter how untrained in the force he was he was still able to beat down Vade in the final confruntation. The said he was a Jedi Knight...my foot. Most Jedis like Obi-One work all of their born days to get the title of Jedi Knight. Luke was at least as good or better than Obi-ONe was at Bespin simply because of an unfair advatage of midiclorian count.

I think that Vader would win. Maul is no match for the Skywalkers, even if they aren't as acrobatic as him. Vader was able to use the Force alot better than Maul. I'm sure Vader or Luke fully trained, could beat Maul fully trained. Has anyone read the NJO series, cause I bet Anakin Solo in that could beat Maul.


Thrawn's Driving Theories

1. Green light means go. Yellow light means go faster. Red light means you didn't go fast enough.
2. If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the road. . . and the sidewalk. . . heck don't come outside.
3. I'm going to drive really, really fast. That way I'll pass all the scenes of the accidents before they even happen!
4. Real men don't need brakes.
5. If other cars can't feel your CD playing, it's not loud enough.

Motto: As far as I can, as fast as I can, as loud as i can.

Midiclorians aren't everything. When look was on tatooine he couldn't even stop a few tuskan raiders. Training has nearly everything to do with it. Of course, some show more talent than others, but without proper training, that doesn't matter.

When i refer to "kick their ass" i kinda mean kill, and since Luke didnt go ahead and kill Darth Vader then he didnt "kick his ass" as "kick his ass" is used in the rest of the paragraph. Plus we never really got to see Maul's full potential.... He probably coulda killed all the other Jedi as Vader did. Dont forget it was prolly Darth Maul that helped Palaptine get as far as he did. So its hard to make a good descision, but since Vader is in all the movies and they portray little anakin as the next Galahad then nobody wants to hear about Maul but in my opinion Maul woulda either whooped VAders ass royally or woulda beat him within an inch of his damn life.

Please list the canon, and/or official source(s) in which this is stated.

No I think Maul would have beaten Bespin Luke, remember there he had the potential, but hadn't been fully trained yet.

I think the way Midichlorians work is that the more you have, the more potential in the force you have, you can have all the midi chlorians you want, but if you don't know how to use them, you're nothing special.
