As you can see Vader does not go down in 3 moves.
Vader in his prime went down to Kenobi in that fight.  Anakin went down IN HIS PRIME TO KENOBI.  He cried and screamed like a woman after that he hates him.  Maul in his prime crushes any Vader.

Darth Vader would own Maul without much problem imo based on everything I've seen and read. He'd have a much better time against Anakin but he'd still get owned at the end there. Kenobi was in a unique and advantageous position to defeat Anakin.

Vader was the John Wick of the galaxy. People were terrified of him, and rightly so. At the end there, even the Emperor started to fear Vader and the Sith his anger and pain had allowed him to turn into despite being more machine than man. He was lethal as hell. He was everything Anakin wasn't: unemotional, calculating and every move had a purpose.

Based off what ?? Keep in mind this was Maul well after his prime while broken and lost in the episode.  What showings from Vader have impressed you ?

The funny thing is this isn't even a Vs. thread... There's nothing to debate. Kenobi merced Maul.

In three moves, no less.

Due to Maul being broken and lost and Kenobi knowing exactly who he was and what he was fighting for.  I bet you didn't grasp anything other than 3 moves.

Maul was always a broken and crippled creature.

He lived as a monster and yet when it was time to face judgement he didn't cower and hide behind that which drove him. He didn't allow the hatred and spite to consume him. He didn't curse Obi or attempt some nefarious last ditch attempt at underhanded evil. He could have. He has before. But he didn't.

Instead he faced his judgment head on, with pride knowing he was a man of evil yet unwilling to allow that very same darkness to completely define him.

He died with the very thing he had been denied his entire life.

Hope.

1999 Maul was a nothing character that looked cool and did flips.

In 2017 he became one ofbthebdeepest characters in the series.

How sad it is to see a supposed fan completely missing the point of the character as Maul has evolved.

Jook you're factually wrong.  He was selfish to the bitter end.  I can actually prove this unlike your silly little feelings.  In his final moment he languished in his hatred for his enemies unable to move past the selfishness of vengeance.  Kenobi moved on and rose above his past experiences while Maul couldn't move on and made Kenobi the centerpiece of his focus. 


When he laid there dying he channeled a comforting thought that the chosen one would carry out vengeance on his enemies.  Kenobi pitied him for this but fuck Kenobi he's a Sith.  He isn't understanding and holds onto every slight much as I do.  Great character and anyone who didn't grasp what defined and made him great can kiss my ass.

Do you realize what they intended by this duel.  They were fighting the battle mentally prior to and they said master swordsman's duels don't last very long.  Greater time duration of a battle does not denote greater skill.

He survived.  He didn't beg him the next time he met up.  Growth.  Maul was a rival to Palpatine unlike Vader who was his bitch until he got weak in favor of his son who just behanded him.

You didn't grasp the fight or the situation but given your history, grammar, sentence structure this isn't surprising.   You're real life proof zombies exist.

It was pretty funny how Maul made a hysterical, hystrionic rant like a latent homosexual only to be cut down in seconds by Kenobi, the paragon of rational thought and measured action.

Considered how Kenobi humiliated Maul in Maul's first appearance, it's a fitting bookend to this impotent character.
