DE Luke was in no way comparable to DE Sheev, Sheev is magnitudes beyond Luke at this point, Crucible Luke is the only version of Luke that could have potentially surpassed Sidious

Sidious was only capable of dominating DE Luke through telepathy, exploiting Luke's fragile emotional state during his time under the darkside.

That is not at all a reason to knock Sheev, The reason he can only manifest himself through his storms is because he is no longer defined by his physical form, he is literally too powerful to be contained in a physical body he is a "Chaotic Nexus of dark energy that swell and burst open the fabric of space" even ROTJ Sidious would be above FOTJ Luke

I'm not knocking Sidious, I'm saying unlike Luke or even Krayt he can't manifest all his power through conventional force powers.

Sheev's physical form was a tiny fraction of his full power and even then Luke only managed to defeat him with Leia's Battle Med which was "Unlocking Lukes potential" while also amped by the presence of Sheev's nexus and Byys, two of the strongest Dark Side Nexi ever!

Ignoring that Sheev was also amped by Byss.

Nope, the TCW quote would not apply to the future, this is not the quote that puts Palpatine above Krayt
Top Fifteen Tournament - New and Updated Format - Page 8 42208411
everything here is present tense, Take the other quote for example (the one that does lock Palpatine above Krayt)

Top Fifteen Tournament - New and Updated Format - Page 8 Modern10
Everything in this Quote is past tense except that one line, its the combination of "Modern times" and the quote being past tense that indicates the meaning of this quote that Sidious is the most powerful practitioner of Sith ways spanning up to up to the Legacy Era, whereas "Modern Times" by its self like in the TCW quote doesn't span up to Legacy, the "Modern Times" in the TCW quote refers to TCW times as Modern, not Legacy.

Modern times meaning it spans until Palpatine's time.  So up until his death he is the most powerful practitioner of the Sith.  There is no implication it is referring to Legacy era.

Yeah a couple of C-Canon sources, children's books and Author opinions that don't have authority over G-Canon whatsoever

It was actually by Lucas himself  Top Fifteen Tournament - New and Updated Format - Page 8 1220391476

Yes in the biggest cheap shot ever that would have been suicide for anyone that was not a Cyborg, Jinn genuinely pressed Maul pretty hard to where Maul was struggling

Jinn wasn't pressing Maul at all:

He had been more than the equal of the Jedi Knights he had faced and should have been able to defeat them easily. It was bad luck and chance that had led to his death, a combination that even the power of the dark side could not always overcome.

Source: Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace Novel

Together, they were able to hold their own against the Sith Lord, but their efforts at attack,at assuming the offensive against this dangerous adversary, were woefully inadequate.

Source: Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace Novel

Having expected a greater challenge from Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan, he felt even more disgusted by them.

Source: The Wrath of Darth Maul

Maul leered again at Qui-Gon. You think you're driving me back. You have no idea that I'm in control. You don't know where I'm taking you.

Source: The Wrath of Darth Maul


The only time Jinn remotely pressed Maul is when Maul was caught off guard by Jinn's meditation amp which granted him a "fresh reserve of strength."  Even then all Maul had to do to gain the advantage again was flip across the melting pit "giving himself some space in which to recover, gaining just enough time to assume a new battle stance."

Jinn and Vader's performance was virtually identical, as Maul toyed with both of them.

Well yeh obviously, the quote is from the Jedi's perspective and the Jedi did not know of Sheev and Plagueis, only Maul, he was the only one that was "Back" unlike Sheev and plag who remained hidden, so the Quote doesn't include them

I know I just thought you were trying to say Maul> Sheev or Hego, my fault Top Fifteen Tournament - New and Updated Format - Page 8 1289255181 Top Fifteen Tournament - New and Updated Format - Page 8 1289255181

Luke traveling at a nanosecond, the speed of light is one foot in a nano second, and even that isn't as impressive as Sheev's feat

I'm saying unlike Luke or even Krayt he can't manifest all his power through conventional force powers.
Yes because "all his power" is literally too much for a physical body to handle, the power manifested through his physical body is literally, the max amount of power the body will let him accomplish, which is still incredible and much more powerful than ROTJ Sheev, who's power I outlined in my other post.

Ignoring that Sheev was also amped by Byss.
Well yeh but its possible he wasn't or at least the Nexus wouldn't have done much seeing as he himself is a far more potent Nexus, but even if he was amped, Luke is amped to high heaven in this duel and Sheev was in an unstable clone body.

Modern times meaning it spans until Palpatine's time. So up until his death he is the most powerful practitioner of the Sith.

Maul was confirmed to not be amped, Vader as well was confirmed that it was an empty threat. Further proven by the fact that Vader was willing to use the force during the fight but couldn't use it directly on Maul.

Don't know why Maul having an agility advantage is supposed to be a contributing factor to why Maul won, I mean yeah, Maul is more agile, so what? And Maul was actually at a weapon disadvantage with the double blade, shown since when he switched to Jar'Kai he put Vader on his ass in like 2 panels.

Fraction of his former self as in his potential, not actualized power. You don't lose power when you get injured, just potential.

George Lucas: "But Obi-Wan screwed that up by cutting off his arms and legs and burning him up. From then on, he wasn't as strong as the Emperor -- he was like Darth Maul or Count Dooku. He wasn't what he was supposed to become. But the son could become that."

Retconned, the same way Dooku and Yoda being "peers" in AOTC was retconned.

Even if you want to say Maul wasn't toying with Jinn based on the original intent, there's still this from the novelization which puts Maul vastly above Jinn:

He had been more than the equal of the Jedi Knights he had faced and should have been able to defeat them easily. It was bad luck and chance that had led to his death, a combination that even the power of the dark side could not always overcome.

Because his potential isn't on the level of Luke's, who Krayt is called a peer of.
Sheev reached power FAR beyond his potential, plus what is to say Luke has reached his potential in any of the material we have
and the Krayt quote does NOT mean he is on Luke's level at all he was just the current Dark Lord



I assume you're referring to Leia's amp?? Luke wasn't amped in the duel, he was only amped when trying to fight Sheev's force storm.
He was delving into darkside teachings and was officially a Sith he was 100% amped by the Nexi (Byys and Sheev) on top of Leia's amp which unlocked parts of his potential/Unknown Resources 



For both quotes.
No did you not read a word I said when I debunked that notion for you



Again, modern times meaning until Palpatine's death. Also pretty sure that quote came out before Legacy era was a thing lol.
Even though the same source notes Legacy Sith Lords and the legacy era in general, so yes Modern times as of that source + the past tense means Modern times = Legacy. 


Fraction of his former self as in his potential, not actualized power. You don't lose power when you get injured, just potential.
Oh deary me, yes you do look at Vader, the force speaks through Midichlorians, Midichlorians exist in living tissue, when that tissue is gone so are the Midichlorians thus loss of power. literally makes 0 sense for it to not affect power as well an potential

You didn't claim he dominated him, just that he was vastly above him, assumingly because he TP'd an extremely vulnerable Luke:

Sheev reached power FAR beyond his potential, plus what is to say Luke has reached his potential in any of the material we have

Why would it affect actualized power at all?  All that happened was Anakin's midichlorians were destroyed, meaning he didn't grow as fast anymore.

yes that supports my point, when he was "no longer as strong as the Emperor" I've already debunked your stupid notion that this is referring to potential in the other thread

But it doesn't support you lol.  The entire context of the quote refers to Skywalker potential.  How Anakin was originally supposed to surpass Sidious but failed, then Luke was supposed to surpass Sidious.  It's present tense.

What I'm saying is you can take it away from Maul. It's part of his combative skill set. You're pretty much just asking for stats to be equalized.

Maul didn't need agility when he beat Vader's ass in 2 panels either, he just needed to get serious and stop dancing around him.

Which I acknowledged.  How does this change anything?  
if you cant see how it changes anything then I question your intelligence, your claim was that Luke was comparable to DE Sheev, if you also acknowledge him being amped to the high heavens to compete with a fraction of Sheev's power, how would that not change anything, I do not understand how you can acknowledge that and still conclude he is comparable.



I did, not convinced at all.
How, its clear as day lemme explain it again nice and simple


-TCW Quote: all present tense, speaking from a point of view of the clone wars era, referring to TCW Sidious, modern times clearly means TCW 
- Databank quote: All past tense, talks about Legacy era and Darth Krayt, Modern times clearly means Legacy seeing as that is the period the OOU narration is coming from mentions Krayt


if you are not convinced now then I'm sorry but that's just dumb.



Why would it affect actualized power at all?  All that happened was Anakin's midichlorians were destroyed, meaning he didn't grow as fast anymore.

Bro, do u know what Midichlorians do, I literally explained in my first post lol, Midichlorians are the conduit in which the force speaks to you, if there is less Midichlorians you have less force power because you have less matter for which the force to channel itself through, it has been confirmed millions of times that Vader lost force power because of this and Lucas confirmed ROTJ Vader and Luke are weaker than TPM Jinn and Kenobi 

George Lucas, Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back DVD commentary wrote:Now he's half-machine and half-man so he's lost a lot of the power of the Force and a lot of his ability to become more powerful than the Emperor

Star Wars Encyclopedia - Darth Vader wrote:Darth Vader was encased in sinister black armor. The man underneath was mortally wounded in a lightsaber duel, and the dark suit includes extensive machinery to keep Vader alive. The sounds of his mechanical lungs accompany his every step. Such injuries greatly diminished his ability to use the Force, but Vader is still very powerful.

I dont know what on earth your basis is for that retarded claim but this should clear some stuff up


But it doesn't support you lol.  The entire context of the quote refers to Skywalker potential.  How Anakin was originally supposed to surpass Sidious but failed, then Luke was supposed to surpass Sidious.  It's present tense.
Yeh that's not the same quote that is claiming Anakin = Sidious, the one that says Anakin = Sidious is NOT referring to potential. Besides Anakin not surpassing the emperor doesn't preclude them being equals at all 



Because Nick Gillard has ROTS Yoda (who you hold as inferior to AOTC Yoda) as a tier 9, while ROTS Dooku is a tier 8.
Dooku has never been confirmed to be an 8 outside of non binding Emails, ROTS Yoda is a 9 and so is AOTC Yoda. but that isn't even relevant to the what you are responding to, you claimed C-Canon sources overruled Maul and Jinn being equally matched, even though the sources I cited that state they are evenly matched is G-Canon, so no C-Canon does not override G-Canon at all, god you are stubborn, learn to just concede when you are beaten its a lot more respectable than carrying on blabbering about points that are canonically incorrect 


You don't kill an amped near equal in 30 seconds.  Maul killed a meditation amped Jinn in 30 seconds.  Maul was handling Jinn+Kenobi.  They aren't even close to being portrayed as near equals.
Jinn was tiring and not amped, idk where you got that from lol, anyway its a G-Canon quote soooo...
