I never thought of posting this before but theres an on-going debate amongst the Star Wars watchers of my friends thats been going in small 5 minute conversations at least once a year for the last 3 or 4 years...

Which one is better? Maul or Vader?

I go with Maul...he's more badass (the no speaking thing, the black and red tats, the double bladed light saber, and the sweet ninja moves) Maul is exteremly agile and could probably move too fast for Vader. Also the double bladed saber probably wouldnt help Vaders chances in a 1 on 1 battle. Mauls only real down side here is that just from watching him in Ep 1 he doesnt seem to have much or a strong power over the force as much as Vader does.

Vader on the other hand is THE classic villian of the Star Wars series...his unemotional and creepy exterior, his cold and deathly tone, and his high power over the force all work to his advantage but he's old, half robotic, and not very quick or agile.

We see Vader fight 1 on 1 battles in the films while Maul takes on and holds his own (while killing one of them) against a Jedi Master and soon to be Jedi Master (Qui-Gon and Obi-Won). True - Maul does die but only b/c of his arrogance...not a fault in his skills as a warrior (unless you could consider something like arrogance a fault in skill).

So what do you other SW fans think? Maul or Vader...vote and please give some justification for your views

I would say Vader. 1. I just like him better...

2. I think he has a great defensive side though. He can block some quick attacks. He is greatly skilled in Fighting and in the force and... Well, I can't really explain much more.

I've had a discussion before of Yoda vs Darth Vader... Yoda is a quick little guy.

1 on 1, I think Vader might win.

He is much more powerfull in the force, Maul might be more agile, but I don't think he could really stop himself from being force choked to death.

Hell, Vader could "Hold him in-place" long enough to slash him, the only real force powers we see maul use is Force Push, Vader absorbed a Blaster bolt with the force, most of the skilled Jedi we see can't even do that.

Therefore, Vader.

In a "Realistic" scenario, Vader would also win, because Maul doesn't have a few Legions of Stormtroopers under his command.

It also would depend on if Vader was "Pre-Mustafar" or "Post-Mustafar", I guess.

Yeah that's the point my friends ALWAYS make and I just dont buy into...I mean yeah I agree Vader is stronger in the force but I just dont think it would turn out like that

n, because Maul doesn't have a few Legions of Stormtroopers under his command.

I'm talking 1 v 1 no troopers...anyway...if the two of them were gonna fight that would be mad cheap to bring up ur men to fight with you....that's like challenging a guy to fight and when you meet him outside you have your friends come down the alley and help you kick the crap out of him...I'm talking fair, mano e mano here

Pre-Mustafar" or "Post-Mustafar", I guess.

well if I meant pre-mustafar then I would've said anakin not vader

Vader would win. He's much more powerful than Maul.

If Maul was so strong, he wouldn't let his arrogance get the best of him.

Vader, though it would be a close match. Vader is one tough son of a bitch. He fought a Darth Maul Clone and stabbed through himself to kill him; he's like the Evil Rocky Balboa of Star Wars. Vader's blows might be a lot more heavy and damaging than Maul's quick little pussy strikes. Real Fighter don't need dance around like a Pansie to win a fight, at least when their armed with a Double-Bladed Lightsaber.

to be fair though the whole point of the dark side and why you fall into it is b/c you let your emotions get the better of you and express your ego etc. Vader had some arrogance as well not to mention he couldnt kill Luke b/c of his feelings...

Maul's quick little pussy strikes. Real Fighter don't need dance around like a Pansie to win a fight, at least when their armed with a Double-Bladed Lightsaber.

despite how crappy ep. 1 was Maul was pretty hardcore...I dont think you could call his moves those of a pansy (note the sp) when he was fighting two well trained and powerful Jedi...he basically kicked both their asses throughout that whole fight but one little slip up and he was done
