    The most elegant weapon: a light saber.

    The most iconic combat style: a lightsaber duel.

    Surprisingly, after 9 movies of the Skywalker saga, only 4 duels ended up with a killed sword-fighter. Some of these could arguably not count of such.

    Maul kills Qui-Gon. Counts. No questions.
    Kenobi kills Maul 1. Counts for any who is not aware of the stories in SW animation. It could count as at the point the movie was released, Maul was considered killed.
    Anakin kills Dooku. For some people, it may not count as Dooku was an unarmed prisoner. The duel had already ended.
    Vader kills Kenobi. However, Kenobi pretty much let Vader do it (we can say the duel had ended when Kenobi turns off this lightsaber), and then becomes ones with the force right after. Should it count?

    After this, my vote is for Maul to Qui-Gon. I believe that's the only one that really counts.

    What do you think?

    My vote goes to Obi-wan x Maul. His spinning and taking Maul by surprise was a cool scene.

    The way Maul defeated Qui-Qon... you can clearly see the genius of him. He used his light saber hilt to hit Qui Qon in the chin, which made him lose balance and then he stroke him down. Also the way Obi-Wan killed Maul was really smart too. Maul was trying to pull the same trick he used with Qui Qon, which didn't work because Obi Wan sliced him and his lightsaber in half.

    Darth Maul kills Qui-Gon.

    Simple, but effective. Jedi aren't immune to hits to the Face.
    (I wish Qui-Gon survived tho.)
    On the other Hand, it was a great death. Fighting the first Sith in over a 1000 Years, putting up a good Fight. Honorable.
    You could argue with " “Glory is of no use to the dead.", like Darth Bane did.

    I loved the intense duel on Naboo between young Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon vs the returning sith, Maul, who is the first sith to appear in hundreds of years. That fight was very interesting! Maul and his double saber brought forth a new fighting form and made for a great duel. Qui-Gon still died an honorable death. That fight, in general was intense and cool!

    I think the best was actually when Sidious killed Savage.

    My vote was for Maul striking down Qui-Gon. That entire scene is arguably one of (if not) the best lightsaber duels
    in the entire trilogy, and one of the most pivotal moments in the PT in my opinion.
