Star Wars Madness Day Eight: Last Force-user Standing

Light Side: Ahsoka Tano vs. Captain Rex

Yoda gave Anakin Skywalker a padawan in hopes that the training would make him more responsible, but once the Jedi knight got to know Ahsoka Tano, Yoda wondered whether he’d made a mistake.  Tano proved to be an eager apprentice, all too willing to pull shenanigans for her Jedi master’s approval.  Tano often talked down to, mocked or threatened people during fights and interrogation sessions, a very non-Jedi trait.

Tano proved more than proficient in telekinesis.  Because she had high visuospatial awareness, she could figure out the proximity and location of objects around her with great ease.  She used her innate ability when pulling dangerous force moves such as pulling down entire walls so her master had to fit through a tiny window.  When using a lightsaber, she fought using an untraditional reverse grip that frustrated her master.  Skywalker made her use a standard grip and taught her Ataru, Djem So and Niman forms, making her a skilled duelist.  She also picked up some Jar’Kai during the Clone Wars.

Captain Rex, formally known as CT-7567, was a high-ranking clone trooper during the Clone Wars who served under Jedi General (yes, I said General) Anakin Skywalker.  Rex was a skilled soldier trained in multiple combat tactics and fighting styles.  He disagreed with the notion of blindly following orders and, because he believed in the humanity of himself and his fellow clones, often hesitated to head into volatile regions.

Verdict:

Ahsoka-ahsoka-tano-24547943-792-595Ahsoka Tano wins!  Not only did Tano have good tinkering skills, she proved an excellent pilot and even better hand-to-hand fighter.  Tano shared many characteristics with her master, including his aggressive temperament and determination to win during battle.  While Rex led a unit within the well known 501st Legion of the army learned not to underestimate the Jedi, he does not have the ability to overcome Tano’s innate force sensitivity.  The girl can knock down walls, for Pete’s sake!

Dark Side:  Emperor Palpatine vs. IG-88

Emperor Palpatine, otherwise known as Darth Sidious, was the culmination of a thousand year plan begun by Darth Bane.  Palpatine was a charismatic speaker able to manipulate a crowd’s emotion, which he used to his personal gain. He believed himself (and perhaps was) the pinnacle of Sith power over its long reign, a swordsman on par with Yoda himself.  He submersed himself so deeply in the dark side of the force that he became an embodiment of the force capable of unknowable evil.

The Model IG-88 droid was a line of assassin droids wanted by the Empire.  Shortly after activation, the original IG-88 droid killed its makers and transferred its consciousness into three other IG-88 models and killed most of the factory.  IG-88 teamed up with Bossk and Dengar at points but turned on his partners, seeing itself as superior to the biological organisms it was designed to destroy.  The droid uploaded its consciousness into the Death Star.

Verdict:

darth sidious, emperor palpatine, star wars character tournament, this is madness palpatine,Did they not have anyone of caliber to go up against Palpatine?  Of course the Sith Master wins! He’s fighting a droid! A stupid droid at that.  I mean, who thinks it’s a good idea to upload their consciousness into the Death Star?  We all know how living on the Death Star usually turns out.  I feel Palpatine would short-circuit him, force crush him or push him over a high ledge.  Case solved.

Don’t forget to go out and cast your ballot!  And let me know, who do you think would win?
