I'd upvote your Malak quote addendum if I hadn't already spent my two upvotes today.

We can all agree that the only reason Malak has to be comparable to, let alone stronger than, Kun is the Star Forge and its Jedi-draining amp.


I'm reevaluating my position on 3,996 BBY Vitiate in relation to Kun. Kun's meant to be more powerful, at least compared to anyone prior that already existed in the lore at the time TotJ was published. Possibly stronger than Vitiate, if you take supremacy quotes as being "hard caps" the way I do.

Many things removed such as Tuk'ata comparison and after discussions with Ant awhile ago, I removed the TOTJ Masters scaling from KOTOR Masters. What has been added is Exar Kun's massive drain feat, his ability to exist as a spirit without an anchor as well as his newly revitalised claim to the title of most powerful Sith Lord.

I think it was probably him that made it a nexus to begin with, it wasn't an artifact, it was something he created of his own ability

A new update. (Credit to Decaf)

Exar Kun is known to have made 'abominations' by using his own physical template to imbue Massassi with a fraction of his power:

The Dark Side Sourcebook wrote:Although the Massassi pledged their loyalty to Exar Kun after he defeated the Sith wyrm, the Dark Jedi was still not satisfied. Filled with bitterness and spite, he swore to himself that he would make an example out of the warriors who had put him through his ordeal in the Temple of Fire. Furthermore, he realized that Naga Sadow had not gone far enough when he altered the Massassi. While they made excellent forest warriors, they were not prepared for the highpowered ordnance they would have to face when fighting the forces of the Republic. Exar Kun rejoiced when he discovered the giant alchemical machine that had belonged to Naga Sadow. At last, he had the means to shape his Massassi servants as he needed them, and he knew just the Massassi on whom he could experiment: Zythmnr, the priest who had ordered Kun to be sacrificed.

The Sith disciple first altered Zythmnr physically, fusing the old priest's skin with metallic bioarmor and enhancing the Massassi's skeletal structure and musculature accordingly. Vicious claws became razored gauntlets, thick hide became hardened plating, and Zythmnr's head was encased in a shelled helmet. The process was excruciating for the Massassi. He not only survived, but also continued to worship Kun, willfully insisting the experiments continue.

Exar Kun was more than happy to comply. He took his next step: infusing his new warrior with the dark side using some of his own physical makeup as a template. When Zythmnr readily took to the treatment-and even showed potential with Force skills-Kun chose several more "volunteers" to continue his work. Before long, he had several dozen living weapons that exuded the raw power and energy of the dark side. Upon feeling their power firsthand, the Jedi called them "abominations." Kun would take many of these bestial servants on his quests for Sith knowledge. In a few cases, he even left a handful of his favorite warriors behind to terrorize any that might oppose him. While the Jedi believed that all of the Massassi abominations died with their people, there may yet be descendants of this hideous species stranded on some remote, forgotten world.

One of these was Kalgrath the night beast who could generate an instinctive Force Shield so strong that it was 'invulnerable' to heavy weapon cannon fire:

Added these from a West End Games supplement:

As of the Battle of Coruscant, Ulic Qel-Droma and Exar Kun are about as strong as Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine:

Exar Kun: The Ultimate Respect Thread (2020) - Page 3 Screen_Shot_2020-05-22_at_9.08.10_PM
Translation: They're about the same strength as Vader and Palpatine but less amicable. Drop the charismatics.

Exar Kun is also stated to be the supreme master of the Sith Order by now:

Exar Kun: The Ultimate Respect Thread (2020) - Page 3 Screen_Shot_2020-05-22_at_9.28.53_PM
Translation: He is an ambitious Jedi, initiated into the doctrine of the Sith, of which he becomes the supreme master. His ultimate ambition is to restore the Sith empire.

Lls jouent dans la meme cour que Vador et Palpatine et sont plutot moins aimables qu’eux.

Lls jouent dans = They play in 
La meme cour = the same court
Que Vador et Palpatine = as Vader and Palpatine
et sont plutot moins aimables qu’eu = and are rather less friendly than them. 

I recommend updating your translation. The translation "they play in the same court" is, apparently, a common French phrase to roughly mean to "to be of the same size; to be equal talent, in fortune, in glory, etc." There's not really a basis to say it's referencing uniquely referencing power when there's obviously many other parallels you can draw between them all. And it's rather unlikely it's about power unless it's insinuating Kun, Droma, Palpatine, and Vader are all of comparable strength (???). Notice it never says "respectively" and, if you were to add that in, that would put Kun with Vader and Droma with Palpatine as it writes Kun and Droma but then Vader and Palpatine.

Cool find, though. Exar Kun: The Ultimate Respect Thread (2020) - Page 3 1289255181

look, idk if any of what u said is true or not, but regardless, wouldnt the fact that the quote said that they were less friendly than sheev and vader already be enough of a joke?
