I kinda agree. But it's strange I was a fan of Sidious before but after this thread I started to dislike him. Being a fan of him didn't make me put him above Mace, Yoda, the ones and Vader.

Still, I love movie Palpatine. He had been played by the best actor in the entire saga.

I just feel Darth Sidious is being sold short here for some reason. Wouldn't it make far more sense if Sidious threw the fight anyway? I mean, from a plot perspective?

The thousand year plan of the Sith was so close to success at that moment. Given Palpatine's efforts to escape from the Yoda fight, he would never risk his life and the enormous plan in the fight against one of the most powerful Jedi ever, hoping Anakin denies Mace from killing him.

In the recent years Disney only made Vader even more stronger . In the "Lords of the Sith" it was claimed Vader's injuries strengthened his connection to the Force, the exact opposite of the Legends route. And they have been following that claim.

So far he has been crushing AT-ATs, lifting multiple AT-STs at the same time, bringing down ships, killing two full squadrons of rebels in a matter of minutes, tanking huge explosions, slamming Palpatine to a wall.

In a recent comic, through a force vision he saw he could still deny the dark side and kill Sidious as Anakin Skywalker again whenever he wanted but he rejected that possiblity, believing he lost everyone he cared about and Palpatine was the only one left.

In the canon, there's no doubt in Vader's mind. He's fully committed to the dark side, his suit helps him (not like the Legends version where it limited his potential as a torture machine) and he enjoys being Vader. Again, the complete opposite of Vader's persona in the Legends.

Currently, Vader is in it's own tier in the canon and Yoda, Windu, Sidious are all at a level below.
