Yeah, I know... quoting a year old post.... I just love how the number changes in every other thread I read...

It's THREE. Been well over a year or two since I've watched the movie and even with my memory of a rusted trap remembers that 4 went to confront Palpatine, and that's including Mace.


Anyway, my personal look on it is that they are roughly equal (Sith vs Jedi). A Sith uses the Force mainly as an offensive weapon, while a Jedi uses it mainly as defense.

Now, as to GL's statement (in these last few posts)... well, the darkside is stronger and as such the strongest Jedi would be one who could master both sides and remain "standing", so to speak. But that's the darkside of the Force... not Sith in general. Sith bring about other things that weakens their own power, bringing them more in line with Jedi. In-fighting being one of them.

Personally I have never heard a jedi say that the dark side or light is weaker or stronger they only talk about the corruption they are roughly equal the only reason why the dark side looks stronger is because it has more use in combat and has more powers associated with killing.

The Sith are obviously more powerful. It typically takes two jedi to beat one sith.

I think, and this may be an unpopular belief, but the Sith, in terms of raw power and capabilities, are stronger because they do not limit themselves to defensive or passive abilities(Jedi seem to do this a bit more). But their true weakness comes from when they overestimate themselves or just flat out don't think clearly in a fight as a Jedi does. In many occasions, a Jedi can just bank on the Sith making a mistake that sabotages themselves. But when you have a Sith like Sidious who is aware almost all the time, who stays level headed in the face of his enemy, well, you get events like Order 66 and the Jedi Purge that followed. Otherwise you get Sith like Maul and Anakin who do not think straight and self-sabotages.
