Ok ive been looking at all the vs threads and ive decided to start my own Death battle series (inspiration goes to Kaggath Series) instead of analyzing power base vs power base this focuses on individual strength based on accomplishments (to prove your point) and overall power.

So who would win the In Your Face Radical Juggernaut Darth Malgus or the Fat Scheming Mastermind himself Darth Baras? (seriously i firmly believe "The Fatman" was named after Darth Baras)

Well, it all depends. They are focused differently... Baras is a schemer, Malgus is a face-puncher.

My vote is Malgus wins, though. He canonically takes all four of the classes from one side to take down. baras gets his rear handed to him by one.

Correction: the Fatman server was named after a ship in the Deceived novel.

My vote goes for Darth Malgus. In the Deceived novel, that guy is just a beast. The best part is in the end. I won't give spoilers, but he basically walks through this guy's force lightning like it's nothing.

He's also a true Sith in my opinion. He is all about conflict, whereas other Sith wanted the Treaty of Coruscant. He really is a true Sith. He makes decisions based off of the Sith Code. Also I think Malgus acheives oneness with the Darkside at one point. That's how epic he is.

His fighting style is all about strength, so I imagine he uses the Djem So dueling style. Just throwing that out there...

I confess that I haven't played through the Sith Warrior story all the way - so I'm a little ill-informed when it comes to Darth Baras. I'm sure Baras would make it a close fight however. I've heard he can get EXTREMELY angry, and anger is power for a Sith.

I hope they kill each other as I don't like either of them. My personal dislike for both aside, I would give this to Malgus unless baras had the time to conjure up a trap for Malgus. Heead to head Malgus has the advantage. If Baras has the time to come up with some kind of trap then he may win. I still say Malgus though.

Darth Malgus there is no debate to it.

The wrath beat baras by himself and it takes 4 of the empires champions to take down darth malgus.
You have seen it, you have felt it within you as you have traveled with me. The growing anger, the rage, and the power it brings. Yet the power does not build without struggle. Through small cruelties greater ones are born. Kriea/Darth Traya

That's a decent point, but I don't like these in-game comparisons. Let's looka t what you're saying:
It took 4 fully leveled players to beat Malgus, whereas it only to 1 to beat Baras

You logic would imply other things:
Say you're fighting Bengel Morr in the JK's storyline at lvl 10. You beat him. Right after that - you travel to Corellia and you take on a lvl 45 droid. That droid is gonna kick you butt! Does this mean that the droid is supposed to be more powerful canonically then Bengel Morr (who's a Jedi)? No. It's just how the leveling in the game works.

Malgus will roflstomp Baras's complaining little kid attitude and white fat butt to oblivion... (no not the game )
Based on his accomplishments in battle through the years and as stated before he is just a beast.

However:
Spoiler


But this is my personal opinion.
