That's a good point, considering the environment.

Well said they were dueling evenly(probably shouldn't have used the word outmatched) and Kun just tipped the balance in his favor. I guess you could say Kun was toying with him, since he had the advantage all along but before that, they were even. Though right, forgot about the environment bit but as said the biggest obstacle is Thon's Force Barrier, that isn't to say his natural armor isn't but that isn't as big as a barrier.

I think the two of them were evenly matched until Kun pulled out the double-bladed saber. Then it was over.

The Force Barrier is going to be a major issue to get past. Though, I think Baas could keep evading Thon until the Barrier is finally down. Baas will also have to mind his surroundings while in the process of breaking the barrier.

This is true, we also have to remember that Baas will be unfamiliar with Thon's fighting style which I expect is which I expect is very aggresive, overpowering and fast. Baas has Force speed, but Thon can use his skills in telkinesis to overcome that and push Baas into the direction he wants.

EDIT: However if Baas can resist Thon's force attacks then Thon is at a serious disadvantage as Baas is simply faster.

Baas is quite fast, and can use his six tentacles to perform acrobatic maneuvers. If Baas can avoid Thon's attacks, avoid being boxed in, and break through that Force Barrier, then I think he would win.

That is a long shot as Thon probably won't just sit around and let Baas whack at him.

I don't want to call this one just yet. Bump for further discussion.

Not really sure, what else there is to discuss....I mean aside from Baas fighting Exar Kun there isn't really anything big that either of them have done combat wise and we kinda already have went over the powers bit.

I think there is just too litle information.
Other then that im an absolute fan of master thon, i realy like him, and the whole concept of it much more then Vodo.
In way Thon is kinda of a yoda taking into another level.

Yeah, there's very little to discuss. It's more a matter of how fast Thon can box in and kill Baas versus how long Baas can hold out in the hopes of wearing down Thon's defenses and cracking his armor.

Well let's break this down.

Speed: Thon is relatively agile but his bulky frame likely makes it difficult for him to maneuver particularly quickly. Whereas Baas often augements his abilities with Force speed and is highly proficient in that skill. And his six tentacles are designed to aid locomotion and agility/acrobatics. So I'd give the edge to Baas.

Combat: Thon has massive claws, sharp teeth and spikes. But ultimately they are just that, he's a big dinosaur and unfortunately our galaxy far far away is not in pre-historic times. Baas on the other hand has an actual weapon, a fancy magic stick that he can manipulate with great skill, and given its length its more able to deflect Thon's attacks. Thon however is apparently a swordsmaster (lol, I think the writers were making fun of themselves there) so he'll be in a better position to block and counter Baas' attacks. But Baas actually has a weapon, so he get's the edge. He can also attack with his tentacles.

Force combat: Thon apparently has an array of abilities but most of these seem relatively passive/defensive e.g. battle meditation and Force barrier. Although he is able to unleash a powerful Force blast. Baas on the other hand can sever one's connection to the Force and likely has some skill with telekinesis - but again nothing special. On this front I'd say they are equal.

Defense: Thon is basically a living shield, he's got natural armour and them Force armour on top of that. Baas on the other hand is a squishy organic, however the best defense is often a good offense. Baas is so fast and agile that his defense is literally being untouchable. However that's not going to get him through Thon's armour so I'd give him the edge.

Verdict: Baas wins, his faster and has a better offense, and although Thon has the better defense Baas' skill in speed and agility mean he is in a position to be able to wear down this shield. And if Thon bashes him into a corner Baas can flip over his oversized head or dance around his fat body. Baas wins.

P.S. Don't be afraid to call it quickly Aurbere, we do have 16 other match-ups waiting!
