Completely serious. The quote says you have to be as powerful as Yoda to survive Dooku's attack; Dooku is less powerful and survived it. Quote debunked. No one has to take it seriously. As you yourself admitted feats take precedence over clearly contradicted quotes. You've yet to address this with anything but circular logic.

The quote is debunked far more convincingly in Ant’s post.

How is my debunk less convincing though? Dooku fired lightning at Yoda with the intent to kill him and Yoda redirect the same attack back at him and survived it. Pretty direct and straight forward. Not only that but it's the actual attack the quote and it's illustration is referring to; so no mental gymnastics about a hypothetical attack method that never played out can be used to wiggle away from evidence.

Assuming that the redirected attack is just as powerful; note also that the quote pertains specifically to Jedi Masters, thus Dooku falls outside it.

This Dooku quote is even more hilarious than the notion of Vader being anywhere near Sidious in power.

OT, Around Dooku and Maul level, as Lucas stated.

Honestly, it depends on the era. You can use his early 19-18 BBY feats and his purported growth to wank him, but his less than stellar showings against TPM Maul, post-prime Kenobi, and barely trained Luke isn't really anything to brag about, and as such are often used to lowball.

I view it the same way most do with the inconsistent portrayals of TCW Grievous and pre-2008 Grievous: rate them separately and don't composite. It's clear OT Vader was written in the mindset he was post-prime and a shadow of his former self. Whereas most writers post-2005 view him as superior to Anakin and by extension Dooku and Maul.

I think Kilius is onto something, I think we should attempt to reconcile Vader rather than just say the OT is shit.

it would only make sense for Luke to scale off of Jax Pavan, Ferus olin etc, since they had inferior performances against Vader themselves.

I don't think writers view him as superior to Anakin. But definitely Dooku and Maul.
I also don't think His showing against TPM Maul is as bad as some people may think. in the end he did win the fight. Also this was a pre prime Vader who was still lacking in mobility.

In all honesty SF Malak level seems to be a more sensible placement for Vader than what most have him on.

Around Dooku level at his peak. Maybe a bit higher in power, maybe a bit lower.

So I just gotta ask, how are you all able to rank where he is at compared to others?

I guess this could also be asked in the general sense, but for the thread it fits.

Like where and what do you look at or compare and how do you even know it even works or fits? How do you even know for sure, that that's where he is?
