PostSubject: Best Star Wars duel?   Mon Jul 27, 2015 1:43 pm

"An elegant weapon, for a more civilized age".

These are for the duels from the 6 currently released movies ONLY. Please do not spam things like "the prequels do not exist" and things like that. All of Star Wars is great and every duel is epic in it's own right, so we're here to respect it all Wink. I'd have to say mine is Duel of the Fates because of how ferocious and intense it is.

That being sad, out of all the movie duels thus far, which is your favorite and why do you like that particular one so much?
For easier reference, I have all the movies with the duels posted below.

The Phantom Menace
Darth Maul v Obi-Wan and Qui-Gonn
Attack of the Clones
Count Dooku v Obi-Wan and Anakin
Count Dooku v Yoda
Revenge of the Sith
Count Dooku v Obi-Wan and Anakin
Obi-Wan v General Grievous
Mace Windu and Jedi v Darth Sidious
Yoda v Darth Sidious
Obi-Wan v Anakin
A New Hope
Obi-Wan v Vader
Empire Strikes Back
Luke v Darth Vader
Return of the Jedi
Luke v Darth Vader

Obi Wan vs Anakin in Revenge of The Sith has been one my favourites since the first time I saw it, I was 5, and it was one of the most intense things I had seen.
I loved Obi Wan and Anakin, and seeing them fighting, with the intention to end each other, was tough for me closed eyes smile Also that soundtrack for the fight, God it was awesome, one of the best things about the prequels was the soundtrack

All of Luke's duels with Vader would come in close joint second

For me it is clear that the best duel is (Revenge of the Sith) Obi-Wan vs Anakin (A large pump feelings), but my favorite is The Phantom Menace (v Darth Maul Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon ) has something special, what do you think?(It is also true that it is the first and most shocking duel)

Duel of the fates is the best fight for sure. Only good part of the movie, fantastic battle.

I really loved the final duel between Obi wan and Anakin although Yoda and Sidious were also awesome. The dialogue between the two in both battles was great as well. ie:(Obi wan)"I will do what I must"(Anakin)"You will try". ie: (Sidious) "at last the Jedi are no more" (Yoda)"Not if anything to say about it i have".

I know that the older generation feels that all the extra lightsaber duels and special effects in the newer 3 episodes were what killed the franchise, and in part they're right, but lucas did right by the duel between Darth Maul, quigon, and then later Obi Wan. That duel was incredible, the suspense built by mauls shaded stalking of the characters earlier in the movie made his true reveal equal parts crazy scary and exhilarating. I personally think that "duel of fates" the music accompanying this duel is some of the best star wars soundtracks have to offer.

My favorite duel was the one in Phantom Menace. To see the light saber vs the saber staff (yes, I know it was two sabers linked) brought back memories of various Martial Arts exhibits where a master on the quarterstaff went against two (or more) masters of the sword. Very intense - and the music did nothing but enhance that.

@rgordonjr That is an excellent point. I agree, the music was the best it's ever been during a duel you really felt the tension. Loved the staff work and movement of Darth Maul. You could really tell how well trained he was as he could kick his opponents multiple times in battle, something other sith haven't done in the films before even Anakin in his prime. I know he kicked Obi Wan during the fight on Mustafar but it was no where near as fast or well learned as Mauls'. He took on a master and apprentice with ease. From his facial expressions to his silent demeanor, he had everything I was looking for in a villain and doesn't get the credit he deserves. I was blessed to meet Ray Park at celebration this year and get a photo with him, he is such a humble and nice person.

I like the duel between Obi wan and Anakin in the duel it shows that battle experience conquers all and ignorance is your down fall. I like at the end when his teacher the guy who trained him looked in his eyes and said don't do it I have the high ground you already lost. As the ego fed now Sith lord overestimates his abilities and defiantly over estimate his teacher in an instant gets most of his limbs removed with one strike. The problem with the dark side is that in the end it will consume you.

Still the duels between starkiller and vader are quite the site to behold!!

Even though I am not a big fan of Episode 1, my favorite duel would probably have to be Darth Maul v Obi-Wan and Qui-Gonn.

@FraceZombie2707
Agree with you on the Old Republic trailers Thumbs Up

Going to have to go with Anakin vs Obi-Wan from Episode 3. To me, it's one of the most iconic moments in the whole saga, as this is one of the key points in Anakin's transformation into Darth Vader.

I have two. The first is Anakin vs Obi-Wan. I feel the duel was much more powerful because we saw two friends, two brothers, forced to face off against one another. Anakin's hate and anger over took him while Obi-Wan was forced to still uphold the principles of the Jedi and do what he felt was right. In the end they both suffered. Anakin was damaged physically while Obi-Wan was wrapped in guilt for doing what he did and not preventing what happened.


The second is Darth Vader vs Luke especially in the last part of the battle. So far Luke was trying to bring his father back desperately, but when he felt his sister was gonna be threatened, he ended up giving into the anger for a brief time. I think the way Luke pounded away at Vader's saber really was a powerful moment. You could just feel the impact of each blow and the anger Luke felt towards his father. Luckily in the end he took control of that anger and stopped himself before killing Vader.
