Hard to say. It could imply that, but I'm not entirely convinced tbh. Yoda's growth over the Clone Wars seems to be fairly substantial, at least in theory.

Well, that depends on if we're treating Yoda's journey in the Lost Missions as Legends.

True. What are people's stances on that?

The episodes were aired in February 2014 in Germany, so technically they predate the Canon/Legends split.

IIRC, their release in the US was March 7th, which also predated the split.

Doesn't phase me in the slightest. All it says is that Yoda is aging and Sidious is too stronk, means nothing to me.

I'd say there's an obvious insinuation that "aging" is a relevant variable in Palpatine being "too strong" -- otherwise it seems terribly random.
It's obviously relevant but is it the only thing that's relevant? That's the real question. Is the implication that Yoda 200 years in the past could defeat Palpatine? Or is the implication if you took what Yoda knew now and who he was now and put him in the body he had 200 years ago he would beat Palpatine? I don't think it's entirely conclusive.

Sure Yoda is past his prime, but I think his ability to contend with Sidious for such a long time ( and even disarm  him) was because so much was at stake. The Jedi are nearly gone, Palpatine has risen to power and has a new apprentice in the form of Darth Vader an ex jedi. He was essentially fighting for his life and the life of other people.

I don't have a stake in this debate at all, and highly doubt Yoda was declining, but we have quotes that do imply this;

I would feel more comfortable if I knew they were on their way to Vjun. I think the world of Master Yoda, but he is very old, and perhaps not all that he once was. The idea of him facing Count Dooku alone, in the Count's stronghold... it makes my blood run cold.

"Is there such a thing as too much power?" Dooku mused. "For instance," he continued carefully, "there was a day when your power was clearly greater than mine. Today, however I have waxed as you have waned. You stand in my citadel. I have at my command servants and droids and great powers of my own that I think would overwhelm even you.

These can be interpreted in a number of ways, and both are pov quotes, but I thought it necessary to mention.

Even though this quotes says that Yoda have decline, they cannot be really use. Indeed, they comes directly from Dooku when he encounters Yoda. And at this time, Dooku is a sith so pretty arrogant. I will say that the subjectivity of this quote is too high for using them as solid proofs.

I don't know what Dooku believing Yoda declining has to do with his arrogance. The fact that he thinks he could overwhelm Yoda perhaps, and exaggerating his growth during the war, but the belief that his old Master is waning is perfectly legitimate.

Force users consistently grow in power as they age. Yoda would likely be no exception. He already relied heavily on Force augmentation to compensate for his lack of height, so age wouldn't really affect anything except his stamina. If anything, he'd be even more dangerous since Force enhanced physicals > standard physicals.

even if he was weaker, he had 200 or so years of growth in other areas (he clearly became more skilled in the force, smarter, more experienced, new/better force abilities)

Most Force users should theoretically peak physically and mentally around the mid to late thirties. The early twenties are the peak of human potential in both aspects but most don't develop that mental toughness until considerably older and more battle-hardened, so mid to late thirties are when they tend to be at their best.


There comes a point though when Force augmentation can't completely nullify Father time. 

 Around the forties is when a Force user starts to really feel the effects of their age. DoE Bane was at his mental apex but was physically slower and less strong than he once was. Mace's age was considered a factor against the younger Kar Vastor, though he still had room to grow mentally. Kenobi likewise considered his age a disadvantage against the younger Hett and he was only 40 though Tatooine's harsh climate is known to cause pre-mature aging so he could a few years older physically. Jinn was considered past-prime as of TPM and is noticeably less acrobatic than he was 20 years prior in the Dark Side comics. Ben is the most notorious example. People argue he's more attuned to the Force and it might be true but his augmentation obviously wasn't able to overcome his massively diminished physicals. 

Also, at least one source supports the notion it's physically demanding and hard on the body to use the Force excessively:


Dynasty of Evil wrote:Flesh and bone lacked the strength to withstand the unfathomable energy unleashed by the Force.

Now I'm entirely not sure if this quote is speaking in general or specifically in regards to the Dark Side, but it would explain why many aging Force users are considerably less physically able despite being wiser and supposedly more attuned to the Force.

Yoda could have:

A: Pull parts of the ship into colliding with one another.
B:Manipulated the controls from the ship
C: Yoda was using combination of force push and force pull 
D: Yoda was lifting 4 stones.You can count them. The 4 stones weigh 25 tones.
E: Doesn't mean Yoda can lift 25 tons with TK doesn't apply to force pull and force push. Not to mention colliding the two ships together.

Example Spiderman can lift 10 tons, but he managed to support a building. Same applies here.
