Palpatine

Yoda retreated for a reason

Sheev could have finished him off from the start but decided to be arrogant and play with him

Yoda fighting at all is such a fucking travesty.

He's a sage, he's not meant to be a warrior.

Sheev, by a mile. He not only blew Yoda the fuck out but he made him retreat and go into exile for getting beaten so badly.

This. Even worse was when he was commanding Clones on the battlefield.

I just rewatched it the other day and not only does Sheev win but Yoda retreats, hides in the air duct, and, in a panic, calls for help and gets the fuck out of there. He knew he was beaten. What's worse is that Sheev beat him without even using his special Sheev Spin move, or by activating his special Force buff, "It's Treason Then" which gives him a natural 20 for his first attack.
>>
>>64594533
Yoda didn't stop for no reason. He stopped because he and palpatine were fighting to a standstill. Neither was better than the other, but neither was worse. And the longer they fought, the more troops would show up, like the Stormtroopers that were rushing in right as he left.
>>
You know we really should do a frame by frame breakdown of these lightsaber fights just to see if they even make any sense.

I had no idea Palpatine was Sideous until episode 3 and I was like 15
>>
>>64594795
I knew as soon as I saw him in Phantom Menace because he looks and talks literally exactly like Sheev did, it was obvious if you knew the canon or anything about the characters. I said "Oh look, this movie has the Emperor in it"
>>
>>64594709

Well he wrecks like 3 jedi masters on one swoop like a split second after that.

So yea
>>
Yoda could counter Sheev's lightning with relative ease while it seriously drained Sheev's power. If it was 1v1 and they were given enough time, Yoda would have won. But Storm Troopers were rushing in at that point so he decided to abandon the battle.

>>
>>64594853
Are you daft? Palpatine was clearly playing with Windu in an attempt to lure Anakin to the dark side. Didn't you wonder how, when he was laying on the ground supposedly "beaten", he was able to turn on his unlimited power switch as soon as Anakin chopped his hand off? He was playing with Windu for Anakin's benefit, in an attempt to ham up the "I'm a poor beaten up Senator please help me" act.
>>
>>64594904
You're retarded. With a bladed weapon (even an energy blade) stabbing is ALWAYS more effective than simple slashing. Why do you think Finn took a few slashes in TFA and survived? But if you get stabbed by a lightsaber you're basically fucked.
>>
>>64594828
Also they call him Emperor Palpatine in Jedi, and they call him Senator Palpatine in Phantom Menace. They weren't trying to hide it at all.
>>
>>64594795

I remember the day I got spoiled on this.

I was just before Attack of the Clones came out and my mom was taking my brothers and I home after her day at the ymca. Before we left, I borrowed a magazine from the lobby and started flipping through the pages. It had a big centerspread about star wars that featured a table consisting of character backstory's and their relationships to the prequels. The words "Palpatine become the Emperor" stuck out and it blew me and my brothers' minds. My mom laughed.
>>
>>64594949
TBF, MUCH BETTER STABBED BY A LIGHT SABER THAT CAUTERIZES EVERYTHING IT GOES THROUGH THAN A REGULAR BLADE
>>
>>64594407
Sheev is canonically the strongest SW character. He only dies because he gets betrayed by Vader
>>
>>64594976
Well yes, but during Phantom Menace it never says Senator Palpatine is Sidious, Sidious is just called Sidious.
>>
Why did Sheev try to run away if he was stronger than Yoda? I'm not disputing it but why did Lucas make him run when clearly this was a throwdown Sheev was looking forward to for a long time?

Why is Yoda's lightsaber blade proportionate to his body size? Couldn't he still use a full sized lightsaber? Why would he allow his opponent to have a reach advantage?
>>
>>64595009
It doesn't just cauterize the wound, it burns it so horribly that the internal organs would be useless. Say you got stabbed in the stomach, like Qui-Gon did. It probably erupted his stomach and burned through all of his intestines and such so severely it looked like ground zero inside his belly.

Now, getting stabbed by a regular blade just lacerates them. There's still a huge danger of dying, but a lightsaber just destroys your body.

Is this the most tacky form of attack in cinematic history?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ve1889zS030

No wonder the prequels are heralded as garbage
>>
The Emperor was surrounded by stormtroopers. Its not like Luke vs Vader where they honorable duels. Sheev would have gone to any length to kill Yoda after that point and likely began to surround himself with cabals of guards and spies. Remember that those clones killed all the Jedi Masters, Yoda couldnt fend off a whole platoon after sneaking into Sheev's castle.

He decided that guiding the surviving Jedi was more important
>>
>>64595093
Reach isn't really a problem when you can do flips and jumps like CGI Yoda can.

>>64595170
Tacky? Maybe. Goofy? Hell yes. Awesome? Hell fucking yes, the Sheev Spin was so great they even put it into the new Battlefront.
>Sheev spinning through a group of Rebels and blasting them with force lightning
I got the game as a gift and I'm having fun.

>>64594917
This. It's pretty obvious Palpatine could have kept up the lightning for quite a bit more, he just stopped to give the impression that he was helpless.

Because old and apparently decrepit sages suddenly pulling ultrabadass kung-fu moves is totally unheard moves in eastern stuff that served as the primary inspiration for the Jedi...

Oh fucking wait, that's actually one of the most common tropes of martial arts fiction!

>>64595305
Oh, yes. He's 900 years old in the OT and peacefully dies after giving Luke some final advice.

Fuck off from /tv/ if you don't appreciate Sheev

>>64595063
Correct. Luke says "I'll never join you, Palpy."
>>
>>64595063
You're right. He was named Palpatine in the novelizations and on his toy, however. Just like Ewok was never mentioned in the movie.

Poor Yoda
>>
>>64594533

Except that's fucking wrong. Yoda was out of strength and fell, taking further damage in the process. Sheev also was weakened by the end of the fight, but managed to hang on to the platform, even if that took most of his remaining strength and he was unable to finish Yoda off.
>>
>>64594795

Had it revealed to me in a shitty Clone Wars art book I got on a birthday, it just showed Palpatine and called him the Emperor. It's funny how blind and stupid kids and teens are, maybe that's why the prequels were uneasily tolerated until Plinkett came along.

They called him Palpatine in the original novelization of A New Hope. And yes, on all the toys.

>>64595440
It is his first name. Lucas came up with it some time ago, but Disney decided they wanted to use it last year in the Tarkin novel. Making it canon. So his name is Sheev Palpatine.

God Lucas is terrible at making up names. At least it isnt Darth Icky

I just recently heard about this and couldn't believe it until I sourced it.

You know, at first I was sad that Disney bought the rights from Lucas but now I can see that Lucas selling the rights was the best thing he ever did for the franchise. He can't even pronounce his own names, he fucking calls Dooku "Doku" and Naboo "Nayboo" in commentary.

Sheev talks about his former master, Darth Plageius in ROTS, even detailing how he killed him in his sleep and took his powers. There's even a whole book about it, and it's pretty good.

No it isn't. It's shitty, cringe-worthy, and ruins an otherwise 8/10 flick. Fuck off with your contrarian views. Every single guy, lass, and kid facepalmed in the theatre when we saw that.

Also, why the fuck is there the sound of a lightsaber igniting during the spin? What the fuck? Did Lucas just close his eyes and head-bash the sound panel hoping for the best?

Half the stuff from the prequels is cringe-worthy, and ROTS is a 7/10 at best.

> Fuck off with your contrarian views.
You replied to seven posters and told them they were all wrong and only you were right. That's pretty contrarian, my friend.

>Every single guy, lass, and kid facepalmed in the theatre when we saw that.
I saw it twice in theaters back in 2005 or so and everyone laughed and loved it.

>Also, why the fuck is there the sound of a lightsaber igniting during the spin? What the fuck? Did Lucas just close his eyes and head-bash the sound panel hoping for the best?

These posts, srsly. What the fuck are you talking about. Yoda wasn't scared of Sheev, yoda was deeply concerned with the turn of events and where things were headed for the galaxy
>>
>>64596232
You're referring to the Sith Empire of the Old Republic era, a good 4000 years before Sheev was even alive. I understand your confusion now - you're mixing up eras and confusing the Old Republic era Sith with the OT era Empire.

Plageius was Sheev's former master and he was eventually killed and had his mantle usurped. Later Sheev formed the "first Galactic Empire", a good 4000 years after the stuff you're talking about.

Now, if you're wondering why Sheev calls it "first", that could be because Lucas didn't know his own canon, Sheev was just being ignorant/prideful (saying his empire is the first true empire), or just the complete disregard for the Old Republic lore.
>>
>>64594795
I initially thought Darth Sidious and Palapatine were different characters. Then someone told me Palpy was the emperor so i assumed he was going to kill Darth Sidious. I was a simple child.
