Dave Filoni: In the EU there were a lot of stories about Grievous, he was an incredible general that got shot down by Dooku in a shuttle, and then reengineered by Dooku, to fight as a general. He was back on his feet, and defending himself from droids, clearly affected by the attack*. If he was even decisively better, it would have been made obvious to both combatants -- see Anoon Bondara vs Maul, Kit vs Obi-Wan. Maul has never done such a thing even disregarding his chicken leg hindrance. Grievous is probably one of the most versatile H2H combatants in Legends. Grievous swiftly getting past Maul's guard does in fact prove that the former is much better. Kenobi was kicked during a blade lock he engaged against Grievous. They are very obviously not the same entity. on July 6th 2019, 6:51 am. That's utter nonsense. Your comparisons have been inaccurate. That's a pretty clear sign of dominating someone. Wrong, Mace is literally the one who attacked Grievous first, not allowing him to open up with 4 lightsabers but only giving him time to activate 2 of his weapons. Way too brief to draw any conclusion. The moment the Republic ship crashed, every single nearby unit would've swarmed the site. Abusing his extra arms is far easier than kicking someone during a blade lock. Be it Ventress, Obi-Wan, Bulq, Grievous or even Kit, everyone is up there. Bail opened his mouth to say something cutting-then swallowed the hasty words. None of that proves Grievous is much better. Just as the warlord had warned, the slector switches of a dozen blasters went from stun to full on, and a harried storm of bolts began to crisscross the bay, putting everyone in jeopardy. And then only tried it again over 5 duels after. Obviously Yoda and Obi-Wan are much more different than Maul and Kenobi. He's also more ruthless, violent, and probably more powerful (albeit not by much). Dooku calling in MagnaGuards to come in from behind and grab Mace while he's otherwise occupied is in no way comparable to the idea that Maul, during an active fight, wasn't expecting Grievous to try and pierce his guard. Refer to above. In 1v1s, K'kruhk died after charging in blindly within about 5 seconds, Sha'agi was killed instantly by being literally stomped, Tarr Seirr was grabbed just like Ahsoka in TCW S5 except much more brutally, incapacitated and then thrown into debris, Aayla was also thrown into debris, Shaak Ti was overwhelmed and could barely defend herself within about 10 seconds and Mundi was kicked into a part of the Acclamator so hard that the entire part of the structure he hit collapsed on top of him. This is even worse than what I was arguing. Orbital mines destroyed all of the transport craft, causing them to crash behind enemy lines on Hypori. yet he's much better based on some suspect Kenobi comparisons. @copper.warrioranalytics wrote:maul 60 percent, ventress 30 percent. She fought one about 6 times over 3 years. Sure most comic fights are cut short. --slice -- the blade winked out of existence a hairbreadth before it would have burned through Obi-Wan's forehead. Son of Dathomir was released into canon continuity and while technically also part of legends, it was developed to accommodate canon, like any other piece of canon material coming out. They bladelock, talk, and Grievous continues talking in the next panel, wherein he kicks away Maul. You're welcome to provide evidence that Dathomir provided Maul with any huge boost after centuries of decline. Grevious was caught off guard but using his iron talons he gripped the ground and took out his blaster. This is literally implication that they are both susceptible to the same attack tendencies of Grievous. You've literally agreed with me. That is, on the major dark side nexus of Dathomir. They engage, and Grievous promptly dismisses his opponent with a kick. You're interpreting the fencing to mean only the style of sport by that name, when in actuality "fence" just means to "fight with swords, especially as a sport." Thanks. Grievous was also detrimentally hindered in that fight and was still starting to win by the end of it. It was the first deadly efficient showing of Grievous's battlefield tactics. I am eager to finish our debate. Crouching low, he angled the blade downward and slashed, guiding it through the roof of the car, perpendicular to Grievous's stalwart advance. Baseless speculation. From Mace Windu or, stars help you, Yoda?”, He flicked his blade quickly, ridding two of the guards of their staffs, then placing the glowing tip a millimeter from Grievous’s death-helmeted visage. Considering it hasn't happened either time that they've fought, there's your answer. Maul and Dooku then retreat. Mace found a way to end the duel almost instantly when he needed to: You make it sound easy, but the alternate outcome of that one movement Mace performed by leaping backward would have been his decapitation and instant death. No, that's just how fights flow. And Grievous using the extra arm trick doesn't mean he cannot beat his opponents in traditional ways, he's just using his cybernetics to the fullest extent quite cunningly. If we go by normal CIS warfare, the moment the ship crashed, the droids would've been all over that choke point within a few minutes. Grevious jumped but Maul caught his foot and using force augmentation, began slowly crushing it. The novel highlights that quite clearly: Slipping into the gap made by Mace's saber, Grievous's left talon lost magnetic purchase on the roof, and the general faltered. I don't really get the effort to cram all the previous EU into a few weeks before TCW, instead of just acknowledging they are different continuities and separating them. TCW Grievous' feats are as valid as his OCW feats from a chronological perspective. She didn't "handily" overwhelm Grievous either, she pushed Grievous down, and he was winning before that. The attack did little to him. I remember that there is a source that says Grievous was toying with her but I can't remember where it was sent. Blinking, Obi-Wan had been forced to admit he’d never actually thought of it that way. Holding back Maul => holding back s7 Ahsoka << s5 all-out Ahsoka. Obi-Wan likely would've been captured right after that kick if Cody didn't help him out. >No visible damage or burns. On neutral ground, Maul was quickly dismissed, as was Maul's rival, Obi-Wan. That's about 10-15 seconds at most. It's why I said he "found a way", not that "he ended it instantly.". Season 5 was released in 2012, putting it before the Disney split, so it's considered Legends as well. Dave Filoni: And his rejection of Jedi status drove him to have modifications done to his body. It's way shorter than Mace's duel with Grievous. If he was holding back, she was too. You say that as if lifetime martial artists like the Jedi simply wait around for life-or-death encounters to practice their skills and never hone them in sparring with colleagues or by themselves in private, like every remotely dedicated practitioner of any combat style to ever exist. I mean this is somewhat logical but wouldn't this be the same as arguing Rebels Ahsoka < S5 Ahsoka? If he wanted to, yes, but Dooku would dismantle him first. Filter by post type. I don't see anything that is stopping him. (ILY) oh you bet your bottom dollar i will. Founded upon the basic deflection principles all Padawans were taught -- to enable them to protect themselves from blaster bolts -- Soresu was very simple, and so restrained and defense-oriented that it was very nearly downright passive. Still not as impressive as landing a physical hit. Swiftly getting past Maul's guard does in fact prove that Grievous is much better. Yeah okay that was a dumb statement. anonymous asked: Can you do Siths with a chubby s/o please?? Except there is. One involves grabbing your opponent when they're holding off two of your sabers in a battle of strength and surprising them with a third or fourth arm. The first was inconclusive. Talzin and the Nightsister's connection to Dathomir isn't one that's shared by Maul or any other dark sider. Ask. No, of course not. He later decided that he doesn't want to prolong their duel because Grievous was beginning to replicate, understand and counter Vaapad and also driving him back. when you have knowledge on him and his kind's fighting style whereas Maul knows nothing about him. If grabbing someone means you've stomped them (when Grievous has never managed to completely defeat Kenobi by doing so, and who is up shortly after). Successful at analyzing Mace's lightsaber style, those same computers suggested that Grievous alter his stance and posture, along with the angle of his parries, ripostes, and thrusts. whereas Maul left her utterly weaponless and at his mercy, and even exploiting his arrogance left her exhausted. In what world is being out of it for a few months (an insignificant period of time, all things considered). Grievous battled s5 Ahsoka, and she left the Order in the same season. But Canon Grievous is Canon Grievous. I think you've missed the mark a bit there. Maul holding back does not mean Ahsoka was holding back. He never once drove Mace back. Talzin took her hand from the deep black-edged groove in her outer thigh and winced. In which case, Dooku is also a moron for not guarding against Savage joining the fight despite knowing he's an active participant. You're one of the best debaters in this thread, so please don't discredit yourself with lowballing. He actually found a way to compensate and even do better. This isn't a case of the Separatists and Republic fighting on some neutral world and Grievous taking command of some battalion in order to secure a particular outpost or whatever several clicks/miles away. ", -- The Official Star Wars Fact Files Relaunched, "Grievous was incensed. Obi-Wan smiled at him. "His ( Grievous's ) sole setting was attack. She was never in a position to kill him, so she was obviously going all out. I wasn't aware that real life fighters could do this. Ah yes, Maul continuing his long-standing legacy as a classic stand-up act. I'll post the scans later showing just how much Maul's saber technique relies on agility and acrobatics. Grievous and Obi-Wan fought each other over 8 times, 2 of which he abused his extra arms to stomp him. It's the principle of the matter. The Hypori campaign quickly collapsed into disaster. Grievous' body (especially his legs) pegs him at 7'2". Gangly chaps always have the hardest time. Ahsoka's mission was to subdue and capture Maul, just as Maul initially wanted to recruit her. Not only would they have to figure out where the frigates and fighters crashed, but they would then have to mobilise their forces, transport those forces to the ruins, attack the ruins, eliminate all of the survivors, and establish a perimeter to box them in. To three months max. Wepixi. The Lost. He was given the details and told of author's intent by Filoni and he approved of it and the staff went on their way to create the show. He is the stronger sword-fighter, but he is very overconfident.”. Lego star wars obi wan vs darth maul - Der Vergleichssieger unter allen Produkten. If you don't like the principles of swordfighting, don't try and bring them to bear here. And then had come Christophsis...and everything changed. Video. "I see the Padawan needs one last lesson. Need I mention the Mace duel in LoE? What's he supposed to do, block Grievous with his legs? Report. —slice— The blade winked out of existence a hairbreadth before it would have burned through Obi-Wan's forehead. Overall, the move script elaborates that Obi-Wan was struggling immensely: "His arms seperate and grab all four lightsabers on his belt. And yes I don't see why Grievous couldn't do that to MFV if they got into a bladelock. With, again, the movie script covering both eras of lore and firmly establishing that Grievous genuinely challenged Obi-Wan in their duel. ", ...Right. You know who else has landed a kick on another Jedi/Sith, despite existing material confirming that there's not much of a gap (if any) in their saber skills at that point in time? If grabbing someone means you've stomped them (when Grievous has never managed to completely defeat Kenobi by doing so, and who is up shortly after) you either need to have Grievous being capable of stomping MFV, or concede that it is - as I said - a cheap shot used to surprise opponents you can't quickly or easily beat in traditional ways. Last edited by copper.warrioranalytics on July 7th 2019, 9:42 pm; edited 1 time in total. So Obi-Wan used his defense to attack. With some measure of polish, if I’m not asking for too much.”. What exactly is stopping him from doing it against Maul? But I pity you should you have to face off against any of the Council Masters.”, He called into hand his courtly, curve-handled lightsaber and drew a rapid X in the air -- a Makashi flourish. To protect the Chancellor until they reach their destination or until he has an opportunity to BFR him. But you mentioned both Legends and Canon feats, which in this case, all versions of Maul except the SWR version wins this. She still used her Jedi training. Untrue. And we talked about that stuff, it was in a visionaries comic book that wasn't really canon, it's just a possibility. She was completely at his mercy when he grabbed her face with his leg and would've died if Grievous so wished. Given that it takes more skill to physically strike someone during a swordfight than it does to use the Force, no, it's not. 1:45. To land a blow during a bladelock isn't necessarily easier, and it would apply to both parties. Anakin Skywalker und Ahsoka Tano nehmen die Suche auf und retten die in den Trümmern treibende Kapsel, bevor sie der Ionenkanone der neuen Superwaffe der Separatisten entkommen. One because of an actual reason and another because of plot armor. Maul was kicked during a blade lock he engaged on Grievous. Kenobi was injured from the kick, and knew he couldn't win, Kenobi 180ed from his previous stance and decided that the ship was already lost based on a statement he made 20 seconds later in a completely different location while fleeing from droids. I know nothing about legend but in canon Maul win all the rounds bare maybe the first which is debatable. I'm not ignoring anything. When Grievous moves his leg up from the ground and pushes it forward forcefully to kick Maul, he is unable to attack with his lightsabers. @lord_tenebrous Before we continue when you respond, please answer a quick question: are you treating this debate as Legends or as Canon? This could owe to any one of the following reasons: Like I already said, he did better overall. Genevievecyther14. Cause I've tried to search, but came up empty handed. The bigger your body, the more vulnerable you are. Dave Filoni: In the EU there were a lot of stories about Grievous, he was an incredible general that got shot down by Dooku in a shuttle, and then reengineered by Dooku, to fight as a general. Grievous being a cyborg has positively nothing to do with basic logic -- being bigger in a swordfight is not an advantage, and kicking someone takes more skill than opening up your palm and pointing it at someone. While if Maul tried to punch/kick at Grievous he would have caught Maul with his second pair of arms. Coupled with Dooku’s coaching, their programming in the seven classic forms of lightsaber dueling -- in the Jedi arts -- made them lethal opponents. A professional fighter, a combat artist, could be defeated by a cantina brawler who knew nothing about form but everything about ending a conflict quickly, without a thought to winning gracefully or elegantly. He was in no shape to fight after that. Because I'm treating this as Legends, so if you're treating it as Canon that might be where the discrepancy lies. I don't see how it's not applicable to Maul. The difference between his dominating of Ahsoka and Grievous dominating Ahsoka was that Ahsoka then got up and carried on fighting against Grievous for a bit longer. Because Grievous chose not to kill her when he definitely could've. In which case, Dooku is also a moron for not guarding against Savage joining the fight despite knowing he's an active participant. Only against people like (pre-ROTS) Kenobi & 19 bby Maul does he quickly land a blow. The same can not be said for Maul and his knowledge of Grievous (e.g. Hence why I revised what I said into "handily", whereby he was able to easily slice slice off Grievous' hand while simply embracing who he was (a master of Form III). And this is ignoring the fact she should've died at that part of the fight anyway. Legends Grievous? Blaster bolts were ricocheting from the container. If you can't understand the difference between the weaknesses of a single form of real life swordfighting technique. I agree that she should never have even held her own against Grievous. I haven't forgotten about this. If you'd like, I can pull up an interview from Filoni where he says they left TCW open for Legends material such as Grievous' backstory. She's not just going to lose her abilities after a matter of months. Landing a kick in this situation is meaningless. This is the case nearly everywhere on the planet. “No, no, stop, stop,” he yelled, coming to his feet and striding to the middle of the training circle, his arms extended to both sides. His blade wove an intricate web of angles and curves, never truly fast but always just fast enough, each motion of his lightsaber subtly interfering with three or four or eight of the general's strikes, the rest sizzling past him, his precise, minimal shifts of weight and stance slipping them by centimeters. My point is the kick was effective enough that had Obi-Wan continued fighting he'd have likely lost very quickly. He uses the Force to hurl the shattered body of a MagnaGuard droid directly into Grievous. Let me be more specific: he handily defeated him, not stomped him, as shown by the two clips I posted (which take priority over the script, since that's just a basis for George to go off, who often made changes to the films and other material beyond the script, hence why lines from it aren't even used). 132 comments. The following sentences depict a rich chain of actions: By the time they were ignited, Mace was already on and all over the cyborg, batting away at the two blades, swinging low at Grievous's artificial legs, thrusting at his skeletal face. This pronouncement had startled Obi-Wan, and he had protested. Maul was tracked to Zanbar by General Grievous, the leader of the Separatist military, and a Separatist fleet. Dathomir is drenched in the power of the dark side: "The Nightsisters' rule was but a memory, but Dathomir remained steeped in dark side powers. Your source and the Wookiepedia description are literally implying the same thing, that the battle was short. Grievous landing a kick, like any other breach of guard, is always impressive, and always a supremacy showing in the moment, with no advantages aiding him in the act, and this being accomplished during active combat. Gangly chaps always have the hardest time. If Grievous can't account for the Force or can't counter it in this fight despite doing it in the past, he's a retarded fighter and all the more reason why Maul is better.
