Canon Vader is actually>>>Legends Vader. He is very close to Palpatine and his potential was never diminished after the duel on Mustafar. Legend Vader is pathetic compared to his canon self

Jokes aside Canon Vader has accolades and statements putting him on Sidious's level if not above it. I mean it depends how literally you take them such as the Fallen Order one but still.

Like the comics has Vader barely off the medical table getting a TK grip on Sidious. Even if Sidious was caught off guard, still...

But yet again he got floored by Ezra and Kanan as well as getting pushed back by Ahsoka who ran from Sidious.

If he catches him off-guard I can absolutely see Vader winning, but it would have to be quick and lethal. On even terms Sidious wins, but it's not a stomp.

It is nothing but a circumstancial feat, a moment of extreme rage and havoc. Sidious was only pushed back and easily break free from his hold and tortured Vader with lightning.

Also, Canon Vader was unable to Force Choke Kirak In'filia with the latter easily being able to break free from it. Vader could only finish him while he was distracted by innocent civillian lives.

Canon Vader with malfunctioning suit proved to be completely useless against Momin and even Chewbacca. Momin stomped him and Vader only defeated him while he was off-guard. Someone as powerful as Sidious can instantly benefit from this disadvantage of Vader.

Canon Vader's only notable achievement are against fodder Jedi and still, he was careless and was given a trouble by those foes.

Canon Vader's accolades are contextual. The FO one is made IU when even Spec Ops Imperial troopers didn't know he was a Sith, so how would Cal, Cere or any other IU character know?

Not for Canon. Canon Vader appeared to become weaker after killing Ben and learning that Luke is his son.

Skip to 2:12. Pablo says, and I quote, “this is Vader in his prime. We have to remember how far he’s come from the good person he was...There is zero reason for that part of him to come out until he’s exposed to Luke.”

This is corroborated by Filoni seconds later, and also by the latest Vader series, which has Vader being unable to choke Sabé because he’s crippled by flashbacks. That’s a Vader far past his emotional, and thus his combative, prime.

Hmm, thanks. I listened to it once and thought it said something else. It's late here in the UK, so forgive me for being hasty with my reply. I probably should have listened to it again in the morning before posting.

My next question then would be how do we set that against what we see in Rebels, where Vader is in his "prime" when he fights Ahsoka - and he is firmly Vader as per Filoni's words - and Ahsoka's fight against Maul, which pits them as near-equals? After all, we have two sources saying Maul would fare as well as Ahsoka did if he were to face Vader. One of them being Filoni himself.

Dave Filoni wrote:“It’s interesting. This is a little bit inside, but Maul wasn’t meant to survive the Malachor episode. There was a lot of thought given to taking him out there because a lot of the Malachor arc, originally, was more about Vader confronting Maul and it was going to be a story about that. It became clear to me as the emotional story developed and we worked on it more that that was just going to be wrong, that if anything happened to Maul it needed to have its proper time and its proper space. That’s how he kind of got a pass and survived to this season.”


Star Wars UK Magazine Volume 7 Issue #4 (2014) wrote:"It's a close call, and these two Sith are well-matched in terms of fighting skiils. But Vader's tactical experience, which he's displayed in everything from construction projects to invasions and space battles, gives him the edge here. Whereas Darth Maul lets anger and arrogance affect his fighting, Vader always seems calm during combat (even a double-edged lightsaber is unlikely to faze him!). However, you get the feeling these two apprentices of Darth Sidious could learn a lot from each other - if only Maul wasn't a goner by the time Vader came along.."

Ooh, thanks for the link. That's very useful.

Eh, even if we discount the second quote, we still have the first one from Filoni, which is a better source anyway as it is specifically about Rebels Maul.

But really, it comes down to a simple question: if we replace Ahsoka with Sidious, how would the fight go? This is Vader's "prime" after all, and if he cannot easily penetrate Ahsoka's guard in a lightsaber duel he has no chance against Sidious.
