He made Sheev his bitch in the films and he made Grevious his bitch in the cartoon.
If there is a stronger, Jedi, who is it?
They asked Samuel L Jackson what color lightsaber and he responded with "purple drank color"
>anakin walks in to find sideous giving windu a beatdown and brutally murders him
>anakin walks in to find windu about to kill unarmed palpatine, shortly after palpatine said the jedi would try to remove him
which is more likely to sway anakin to his will
black meme jedi is just as stupid as the rest of the council and sideous let him 'win'
windu was arguably the most skilled combatant of all the jedi during the prequels. what follows is some expanded universe shit, so take from it what you will.
windu was formerly master of the jedi council, but stepped down and became battlemaster instead. battlemaster is fairly self explanatory, concerned with jedi combat training and the order's military assets. mace is ridiculously good swordsman who uses an unusually aggressive lightsaber technique called vapaad, which he created himself. he spooked the fuck out of the rest of the jedi and a lot of them were concerned with his balls to the wall fighting style and gung-ho attitude. yoda and he were always bros, so nothing really came of whatever anxiety existed. hopefully this gives anyone curious a bit of context without getting bogged down with wookiepedia autism.
In the story it's because he saved a race of crystal aliens who gave him a purple crystal for his lightsaber. In reality it's because Sam Jackson said he'd only take the part if he got a purple lightsaber.
When you think about it, Windu's character could have been a lot cooler in the films (like so many other things) if this kind of thing was emphasized. Sam Jackson is just the kind of guy that should be able to pull off a straight-faced murder weapon style too.
>the prequels would've been better if the characters had actual character
i agree anon. windu's conflict with his darker, more combative side is great, and a contrast between him and mellow "420blazeit" yoda would've been a blast.
