Darth maul vs count dooku

Darth Maul was a male Dathomirian Zabrak Dark Lord of the Sith who lived during the waning years of the Galactic Republic. Originally a Dathomiri Nightbrother born on Iridonia and known only as Maul, the infant Maul was given by his Nightsister mother to the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, who trained him in the ways of the dark side of the Force as his secret apprentice on a secret Mustafar training facility, along with the help of a split personality droid. Maul became a master of Juyo, Jar’Kai, and Teräs Käsi, with training in Niman, and chose to wield a red-bladed saberstaff in combat. Though well trained in the ways of the Sith and a Sith assassin rather than a full apprentice, Maul was technically a violation of the Rule of Two because his own Master was at the time apprenticed to another, the Muun Sith Lord Darth Plagueis. Plagueis however, was fully aware of Maul’s existence, and supported Sidious’s decision to train him. The primary reason for Plagueis’s support, despite the violation of the Rule of Two, was that Maul was trained to be expendable. As an assassin, he could perform high priority, boots-on-the-ground missions for the Sith without running the risk of exposing either Plagueis or Sidious should he fail.[1]

Dooku was a Jedi Master who fell to the dark side of the Force and became a Dark Lord of the Sith, known as Darth Tyranus. Born into a noble family on the planet Serenno, he was the heir to vast wealth and the noble title of Count. Dooku was taken by the Jedi Order as a child and apprenticed to Thame Cerulian. As a Jedi Knight, he took Qui-Gon Jinn as his first Padawan, and later trained Komari Vosa. Dooku was a respected instructor in the Jedi Temple and one of the most renowned swordsmen in the galaxy, on par only with Masters Yoda and Mace Windu.

Dooku spent nearly seventy years as a Jedi, but a disastrous battle on Galidraan shook his faith in the Order and the Galactic Republic. He fell under the influence of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine of Naboo, and left the Jedi Order. After learning that Palpatine was secretly the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, Dooku turned to the dark side and became a Dark Lord of the Sith himself, replacing Darth Maul as Sidious’s second apprentice. His new master bestowed upon him the Sith title of Darth Tyranus.[2]

We shall compare the two combatants in a variety of ways
1: physical condition
2: weapon skill
3:force ability
Let’s begin

Physical condition.

Maul was in very good physical condition as he was young, fit, and years of sith training led him to exercise on a daily basis. If maul had not kept himself fit he most likely would have died from the supremely difficult tasks his master set in front of him.

dooku was an aging human and was past his prime concerning his fitness, (a fact that I believe he more than made up with his logical demeanor, but non the less, that is not what we are debating) he was in good physical condition for his age.

The winner of this round is apparent, maul wins

Weapons skill

Darth Maul was a highly skilled lightsaber duelist, trained by Darth Sidious in Juyo, which drew heavily on volatile emotions and the dark side. However, Maul only devoted himself to Form VII’s physical focus, desiring pure physical victory,[53] rather than the “higher” Sith tradition of Dun Möch; dominating the opponent’s spirit and exposing his inner doubts through taunts and psychological warfare. In addition to this, Maul had training in Niman lightsaber combat and the Jar’Kai dual-saber technique.[1][11][17][54] as well as mastery of the fighting style of Teräs Käsi. He also, like his arch-nemesis Obi-Wan Kenobi, incorporated a spinning attack move in his lightsaber fighting style.[55] His speed was such that even Darth Plagueis himself was astounded by it.[1] When fighting multiple opponents, Maul extended the second blade of his lightsaber to form a saberstaff, doubling his lethality as Jedi rarely faced such a weapon, or a skilled practitioner in its use. Maul often used this to catch opponents by surprise. Maul had constructed the weapon himself, using ancient plans stored within one of the holocrons that the Sith still possessed. He had based his lightsaber design upon that of Darth Zannah’s weapon, which in turn had been a development on Exar Kun’s original design. It is likely that this choice also came from his species’ penchant for the zhaboka, a similar weapon.[1] Unlike the traditional dueling techniques of most Jedi, Maul combined his swordsmanship with martial arts and hand-to-hand combat skills—a combination which made him a nearly unstoppable dervish of destruction. And whenever Maul encountered a foe he could not best through his martial prowess, he would fall back on his tactical know-how, outmaneuvering such enemies.[23]

Unlike the traditional dueling techniques of most Jedi, Maul combined his swordsmanship with martial arts and hand-to-hand combat skills—a combination which made him a nearly unstoppable dervish of destruction. And whenever Maul encountered a foe he could not best through his martial prowess, he would fall back on his tactical know-how, outmaneuvering such enemies.[23] In combat, he used his bladework to redirect and deflect, rather than attempting to meet his opponent head on. He fended off enemies with a minimal expenditure of energy before unleashing rapid and devastating counters, and was known to attack with a fencing-style thrust.[113] As per Makashi training regimens, Dooku relied heavily on his footwork to outmaneuver his enemy, basing himself on balance, back-and-forth charges, and sudden retreats.[28] His skill in Form II was such that he could hold his own against up to four opponents with little difficulty, despite the fact that Makashi was not suited for combat against multiple opponents.[31] He was one of a very few practitioners of dueling-centric Makashi in the Order at the time,[1] and unmatched in his mastery of it.[28] However, like virtually all Makashi practitioners, Dooku had a great deal of difficulty producing any kinetic energy in his attacks. This flaw would eventually prove to be his undoing.[2][31]

Upon joining the Sith, Darth Tyranus had little left to learn about dueling, instead learning the Sith art of Dun Möch, a tactic that focused on disrupting an opponent’s concentration by the use of psychological warfare.[114] His most notable usages of the technique were against Anakin Skywalker. However, each time he applied it, it backfired, and he only encouraged Skywalker to draw on his anger, which more often than not spurred him on to victory.[31] The first instance of this on Tatooine resulted in Tyranus’ defeat, although he survived the incident. His second attempt during his final duel with Skywalker onboard the Invisible Hand was nearly successful. Unfortunately for Dooku, it too backfired, as his taunts only encouraged Skywalker to fall into a rage and break through Tyranus’ defenses.[31] This time, Dooku did not survive.[2][31]

This is difficult and I think I some time to compare.

Arrrrgggg!!! This is so hard!!!

I think that dooku would win this.
Now here are my reasons
1 maul relies on crazy acrobatic jump flips and hammering down his opponents guard, yet, this would be countered by dooku’s ability to deflect his opponents attacks and though maul was physically stronger than the count, but dooku could have held out longer until maul had tired.
2 he was simply more skilled in his chosen form
3 his proficiency with Dun Möch would, I believe, give him an edge on one with as much mental conflict as maul

Force ability

Maul displayed a reasonable amount of competence in telekinesis, utilizing Force grip and Force choke while interrogating Hath Monchar,[20] and being able to activate a set of door controls behind him with a flung piece of a wrecked droideka.[8][10]

Maul also demonstrated a resistance to Force lightning, shrugging off a barrage unleashed by the Nightsister Mighella while hunting for Alexi Garyn.[29] This ability was only effective to a point, however, as Darth Sidious was perfectly capable of torturing Maul with Force lightning.[17]
Maul was skilled in combining Force talents with mechanics.
After his return and cybernetic reconstruction, Maul’s abilities were still as sharp as ever. He used Force scream twice during his duel with Asajj Ventress and Obi-Wan Kenobi.[43] He was also able to Force choke a Falleen without even facing him, and then brutally twist his head 180 degrees. Later on, he compelled a guard into committing suicide by having him blow up a bomb, killing himself and a large group of soldiers stationed at the mines on Moorjhone.[9]
As to how Maul survived, Jedi Master Salmara believed that it was Maul’s hatred of Obi-Wan Kenobi that kept him alive, making him a far more powerful and dangerous adversary than he was before.[9]

During the Skirmish on Florrum, Maul used the Force to pull a several ton Eta-class shuttle off of a hill, where it slid to a stop in front of his pursuers. However, this remarkable act might have been the result of desperation, as he and his brother were wounded and on the verge of capture.[14]

Despite his strong Force abilities, however, physical combat was where Maul was in his element. Oddly for a Niman practitioner, Maul was known to dislike integrating Force based attacks into his lightsaber combat technique, as he preferred to overcome his opponents through pure martial prowess. After his cybernetic reconstruction however, he became far more willing to use the Force in combat, though he typically only did so as a fallback option.[14]

As a Jedi, Dooku was a renowned student of the Force and learned many of the Jedi arts. He was recognized as a skilled master of telekinesis, and lectured on the subject as a Jedi Master.[1] He often used his mastery of telekinesis to augment his dueling prowess, and was quite skilled at directly attacking other Force adepts with telekinetic strikes.[2] He was also capable of a limited form of flight.[58] As a Sith Lord, he sometimes combined telekinesis with the use of Force lightning[6] or Force choke.[2] Despite his mastery of telekinesis, he intensely disliked the saber throw technique, believing that one’s lightsaber should never have to leave one’s hand.[112]

Dooku also had knowledge of the Living Force, and used it once to heal himself of a deadly plague.[23] In addition, he was able to tame animals and bend them to his will, most notably a krayt dragon.[115] As Darth Tyranus, he learned how to forcibly rip information out of the minds of his enemies with the Force.[50] Dooku also mastered the Qey’tek meditation, which allowed him to hide his presence in the Force. Opposing Jedi were usually unable to pierce this concealment, although Kenobi succeeded on Tythe when he was previously aware Dooku was present.[25]

After his conversion to the dark side, Tyranus mastered many of its more infamous powers. He was highly skilled with the ability of Force choke, using it to kill his former Padawan Komari Vosa and to incapacitate Obi-Wan Kenobi during their final duel. He also had a particular liking for the Force lightning ability. He used it to incapacitate Anakin Skywalker on Geonosis and attempted to do the same to both Obi-Wan and Yoda, though the latter two were able to block it.[6] Dooku would display his mastery of this power on numerous other occasions.

The winner is dooku

Now, if the two of them had ever battled I believe it would have gone something like this. Maul would have leapt to an offensive attack and unleashed a flurry of stabs slashes and acrobatic maneuvers, each of which would be countered by dooku.
Maul would have tired eventually, and dooku would have unleashed his full power with the dark side of the force, slowly beating him into submission. As maul would lay down battered and bruised, dooku would revel in his triumph for a second and then, the count would end mauls suffering.

Look guys and girls, I love darth maul as much as anyone but this is just my logical conclusion, if anyone can come up with a flaw in galactic history, please tell me or make your own debate. My mom thinks that this is good home schooling (and yes, I’m homeschooled) and I think it is fun. If possible please tell me who I should do a VS debate with.
And one last thing tom? So I get some prize for longest submission? And please turn comments back on. Thank you in advance.
