How powerful was Mace Windu? Was he stronger than Yoda?
Not many people have realised that Mace Windu was a more powerful Jedi that Yoda.
How so you may ask?
This can’t be true!
And that is true, Yoda fought Dooku in Attack of the Clones and fought an epic saber duel against Palpatine himself.
But Yoda did not beat Palpatine.
Who did beat Emperor Palpatine?
Mace Windu did.
I’d thus contend that by virtue of Yoda being unable to defeat the Sith Lord and that Mace managed to defeat him, Mace Windu was a more powerful Jedi than Yoda.
It’s arguable of course, there are many other attributes of being a Jedi that can be defined as powerful or stronger.
By their swordsmanship.
This raises an interesting point.
