Lucas viewed Darth Maul as merely a pawn in Palpatine's game, responsible for murdering Qui-Gon Jinn and thus denying Anakin Skywalker of a necessary father figure.With that … Obi-Wan vs Maul and Savage was actually the next one I wanted to write, and I wanted to write it as soon as possible. Had Filoni stated that Savage "put up a good fight against Sidious," that would mean what it clearly says, but instead he stated that Savage "puts up a better fight than the Jedi Council did." I liked it. Here's why Maul was motivated to find Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: Rebels, and it's not so that he could kill his arch-nemesis. He could have ended their encounter before ever crossing blades with them, as he proved he could trash both of them with the Force when he maintained a Force grip against both that neither could escape from, when he KO'd Maul instantly with a single Force push, and when he pounded Maul into the wall and the floor with hand gestures. Great thread! [13] During a time when the Sith were plentiful and powerful, a male Sith, Darth Atrius, was the bearer of the Darth title. I mean just look how great it is. [2], Kast and Saxon took Maul to Zanbar as ordered, where the Death Watch leader reunited with his forces. Once again, good blog, Silver. Problem is, the fact that Sidious dispatched Savage with relative ease and the fact that Savage fared better than the three Council members did are not incompatible with one another.

Objective The doors opened, then closed behind a figure in dark robes. And with that, this whole debate has been settled. I mean if we can't even talk or use that fight, where is the respect for the work that TCW producers have done ? It might be one worth doing, but I wouldn't call it high on my list. Maul felt himself leap from the throne, mechanical legs clacking down the steps and toward his old Master. On that note, I could also mention the telekinetic control Sidious exhibited at the beginning and end of this battle, where he pins Maul and Savage to a wall against their will and lets them down of his own volition and later bashes Maul into a wall and the floor, both of which show just how easily he could have beaten both with the Force alone had he not elected to duel them for his own entertainment. It’s just not gonna happen.

Believe it or not, there’s more to Darth Maul that his brief appearances in Phantom Menace. In one sense, it would make more sense to me for Palpatine to send Dooku after Maul so that Sidious can acquire the most suitable apprentice; whoever won between Tyranus and Maul would be deserving of the Sith title. According to this review of what transpired, Sidious first killed Savage and then afterward "toyed with Maul." @shootingnova: Any particular requests? I was wondering when Erkan would get in here, lol. Maul looked up, saber in his grasp, and stared into Darth Sidious’s blazing eyes. “Master,” he said, leaning forward on the throne. He took on both Anakin and Obi Wan at the same time … “A presence I haven’t felt since...”. If you're taking any suggestions about any TCW-related fights you could do in the future, I think Luminara & Ahsoka vs. Ventress in S1 and Dooku vs. Ventress & the Nightsisters would be interesting.

They present Darth Maul to Vader, long thought to have been dead. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. Lucas isn't infallible, whether it was a mistake to bring him back or a mistake to kill him off in the first time, it happened and Lucas didn't course correct until after he had written Episode II and Episode III, why is why Maul can't split the beans about Palpatine until after those events take place. His second blow to Savage sent him flying backward and lying face-down on the ground until he struggled to regain his composure some seconds later, and the last roundhouse that Sidious threw at Savage stunned him and left him open to a stab with both lightsabers that Sidious immediately ended the contest with. Concluding from Filoni's statement, "Savage did better than the Jedi Council," that "Savage put up a good fight against Sidious" is both non-sequitur and fails to listen to/read Filoni's statement for what it was. @erkan12: "Best lightsaber duel they've done" as in it has the best animation and is entertaining to watch. This is wrong on all counts, because Sidious beat Maul with the Force and with a lightsaber all while holding back and just toying with him.Maul really can't hold his own against Sidious in any meaningful way. I have seen Maul and Savage take some flak for that fight, even though the circumstances favored Kenobi, which can become tiresome.

It may surprise you to know (or it may not) that Darth Maul also has a bit of telepathic power at his disposal. Filoni said that it was ''the best'' lightsaber duel they've done, if it is just a joke where Sidious was toying with them, what's the point of it ? To address another point championed to attribute an advantage to Maul and Savage, there is this behind-the-scenes clip "Wrath of the Sith" in which Dave Filoni, the supervising director of TCW, remarks that Savage's performance against Sidious was better than the Jedi Council members that Sidious killed in Revenge of the Sith. Savage knew the dangers of facing the Sith Lord alone, and pressed his attack before Sidious draw his hand back from Force-shoving Maul into the wall.

His sabers stabbed and slashed through the smallest hole in an opponent’s guard, his movements never carried him a millimeter out of position, and he could sense every attack Maul and Savage made before it developed. Shadow Collective[2] No further refutation is really required than that, but if I wanted to thoroughly dispense with that clip being used in Maul and Savage's defense, I would point out that it flies in the face of Filoni's various statements that no one could compete with or touch Sidious and that Maul is nowhere near as powerful as Sidious is, even disregarding the fact that this deleted scene contradicts the opening salvo in the fight where Sidious subdues Maul and Savage simultaneously by holding them against a wall with the two of them being incapable of escaping. [8] This alliance was part of Sidious's plan, but Maul knew this as well. Clone Wars[2]Mandalorian civil war[3] He had been Maul’s father, his protector, his torturer.

I always thought since I first saw AotC that Yoda proved himself the clear better of the two, with Dooku being able to hold his own but ultimately lose, but you can find obscure EU lore pieces that suggest they were equals. He raised his arms and both Maul and Savage flew through the air, smashing into the elegantly patterned walls of the royal chamber and crashing to the floor. --Taken from Darth Maul: Shadow Conspiracy. But strong as he had become, Maul found himself in awe of Sidious. The topic today is on the duel between Darth Sidious and Darth Maul and Savage Opress in The Clone Wars episode "The Lawless." Maul and Savage didn’t waste time seeking an advantageous position. The key to interpreting this quote properly is in understanding that this a statement of comparison between Savage and the Jedi Council members, not Savage and Sidious. Sidious revealed to Maul that he did not intend to kill his former apprentice, as he still had use for Maul;[7] it was Sidious' hope that Maul would lead the Sith to Mother Talzin,[2] Maul's mother and the leader of the Nightsisters,[8] so she could be eliminated as a potential threat to the eventual Sith rule of the galaxy. He could taste blood in his mouth. One thing that has always bothered me while watching Star Wars is that I don’t know what Darth Maul’s real name is. “There can only be two, and you are no longer my apprentice. Before the Jedi could react, Palpatine sprang into action and killed all of them except Mace Windu. The motion was almost automatic, involuntary. His hermitage on Lotho Minor, his lessons on Unbara, his restoration by Mother Talzin, and his training of Savage had all strengthened him, made him a more worthy vessel for the dark side to fill with its power.

Battle droids were sent to the third level to investigate the explosion, though Dooku suspected that the true target of the attack was Maul. I invalidated this claim in the OP as well: According to Filoni during his interviews, "no one can compete with [Sidious]," "nobody was really...able to touch him," "[Sidious] really always does have the upper hand," "he's enjoying himself while he does it," and "Maul...is still not nearly as powerful as Sidious. This reflects my own thoughts on Maul's 1v1 with Sidious. Preying on Vader’s ego, they goad him into dueling Maul for the chance to prove himself as the Dark Side’s true disciple. 3; Despite this. I give Maul credit for succeeding to hit Sidious at all and consider it a good display of fighting skill on his part to maneuver Sidious into the air so that he could deliver his subsequent kick (although Sidious was toying with Maul as I'll be covering shortly), but once again, this resulted with Maul and Sidious just closing the gap formed between them by Maul's kick and ending the duel with a saberlock. How could it be the best duel in the entire TCW series ? Maul could no longer remember where he had heard it, or what it meant. During his training, Sidious took Maul to Malachor, where an ancient battle between the Jedi and the Sith occurred. Maul had fought his Master many times, starting when he was little more than a child and continuing through his apprenticeship. @jedixman: Well, at least you can be grateful they opted to show Sidious better than the two not just with the Force but with lightsabers too. The feeling had begun as a faint stirring in the Force, like the tiniest ripple of something moving slowly through deep water, far away but drawing steadily closer. Maul danced away from one blow, then reversed his movement to avoid another, and then there were too many to count, and then there were even more than that. As soon as he shows up, people are going to die, bad things are going to happen. The facts are the facts, and Maul and Savage together were never able to adequately oppose Sidious in a fight.

To summarize in one sentence: Filoni never said that Savage put up a good fight against Sidious, only that he fought better than the Jedi Council members. Regardless, non-canon content is not an acceptable form of proof. The sheer superfluity of Filoni's commentary on this fight should suffice to drive the point home.

This does absolutely nothing to gain them any advantage though, especially in Savage's case. I personally agree with you that Yoda is both more powerful and more skillful than Dooku, though maybe not enormously, and in spite of a few sources here and there saying otherwise, the vast majority of sources that give an overview of that duel state flatly that Yoda won.

Darth Maul - I don't think he did, because I doubt Palpatine was planning on keeping him around for long because of Dooku, and Maul was only a small part of his plan, but I guess that could be part of the reason why Palpatine wants to hunt down and kill Maul and Savage, in case they know anything about his plans. Not to mention, if we want to judge the succession of events in this fight based on Filoni's commentary, then I offer the following citations as more accurate descriptions of the play by play.
